Gaming Time Limit (PC) - Page 2

post #11 of 22
What I did as a teenager was this,

As soon as I got home from school I would do at least an hour of homework, it was like another class period to me, I did it away from my computer totally. I don't see why you NEED your computer to do your homework in high school. IF you do, get a 100 dollar pc and install lubuntu linux, no gaming there.

I would make a sandwich or whatever then get going. At this point your far more likely to continue to do more past the hour because you're already on the roll.

Then after that play your games. Once you get this routine going it will become a working part of your life.

As for getting laid:

study social dynamics, male-female attraction, do voice exercises to get a deeper voice, study body language books, and how to groom yourself. be well groomed, clean cut, get a good haircut, talk to a stylist about what looks best on you. Make sure your nails are trimmed and clean, If you have glasses, get contacts, keep facial hair trim if you must have some. If you need a way to start a conversation with absolutely any woman, ask for her opinion on something innocuous like what she thinks of jewelry on guys or if she thinks teenagers should get into serious relationships in high school. Then when you want her number say "i have to go but id like to talk to continue this conversation later, whats the best way for us to accomplish that" Speak slowly and clearly, dont fidget, take up space, be laid back, tease them, learn some simple coin tricks or palm reading or do thumb wars to attract them and make physical contact for the first time, make eye contact, smile alot, if you have stains on your teeth then whiten them with strips, be a fun guy, but dont take ****, stand your ground, dont supplicate or suck up EVER. reward good behaviour and dont reward bad behaviour with being nice to them. Study guys who are good with girls and note their demeanour. Also, there is an endless source of women for you to meet, so if one gives you grief, just move on asap. take the lead, be alpha male.

That's a good start.

Buy a pet hamster for 10 bucks at your local pet shop and train it to slap you every time you get tempted by games... (Or OCN if your me) biggrin.gif

As above said, best thing to do is homework first. Gaming/porn as a reward. Once you have the routine you're fine.

This is basically self control, it is part of growing up. Whether you are in highschool or college, you need to set priorities on what is important. If you really cant do that, take out your GPU and put it somewhere safe and lock it with a combination lock for a week, give your mom, or friend the combination and then go out and prioritize everything in your life. Go to the mall, parties, hang out with friends, the thing young adults do.

Not trying to be harsh, I actually had the same problem when I was in college, since highschool came too easy.

Another idea...If learning self-control and prioritization doesn't work, you could always drop out of school so that homework no longer interferes with your PC gaming.

Really? What good does a computer do if you have no job?

Blah blah blah self control.

Try using this little program called focus booster. I do quite well in school (I major in Micro and Molecular Biology) and there's a technique called the pomodoro technique. Essentially, it is 25minutes of activity X and then 5minutes break. Repeat, repeat, repeat, until you are flustered. You can modify it to your liking. I tend to do 25minutes of studying, followed by 25minutes of gaming, and repeat. The gaming time surprisingly seems to last very very long, while study time goes by pretty quick. You can get a lot done this way without becoming too exhausted. However, this does not work if you wait last minute and the deadlines are around the corner. This technique only works if time is used leisurely.

edit---
here is a link. Soon it will be ingrained and you will be able to do it mentally without an app. Once you gain the self control.

Once school work is done, you have all the time in the world to play.

Work hard, play harder.

Wow!
Most helpful post so far.
This is kind of what I needed xD.
and yeah.. those self control posts..
If you are given limits your most likely to make the most use out of it.
I'm a conservative person, so it's what I do. smile.gif
