So yesterday, I actually had a "day off" from work which means i'm still on-call but I didn't have to go in and I played Civ 5 for like 7+ hours or so. [I've worked about 8.5 weeks straight with one true day off]
But I felt disgusted with myself because I did nothing productive, if I work for like a few hours a day, I don't feel bad for gaming, nonetheless. I'm going to abstain from gaming starting today (April 15), I want to see how long I can go. It'll be the most tough when I'm on my computer working on my novel (85k words baby) or something else. But I'll give it a go. My goal is to go until May 1st. My stretch goal is May 15. My ultra reach break through goal is until the new PoE season starts. The likelihood of failure is like 99%. I think I'll go until 4/17 before I crack, but we'll see.
How long have you voluntarily not played games for? (vacations and times where you couldn't play doesn't count). Take guesses to see when I'll crack.
p.s. no phone games either, I only play chess on the phone and that's to kill time, so i'll abstain from that too.
p.s. It is the right time for me, my path of exile char died, I'll wait until Conan Exiles launches, and Civ 5 isn't all that attention grabbing for me, it is more of a filler game. It isn't football season, so I won't feel the need to play Madden and I play nothing else on xbox.
