Quiting video games and PC's for good... - Page 5

post #41 of 43
I know how to balance my life and the activities that are included in it such as gaming. There were times when I was younger where games had negative impacts on me but now gaming doesnt bother me nor does it affect my health, social life or fitness. When I dont work, study, train or interact with people I simply play games and I enjoy doing that from time to time. Despite me working as a freelancer, studying at university, training 4 times a week and meeting up with friends I still manage to find some time to relax and enjoy a game. I never had low testosterone, I had iron deficits but that is something that was corrected in a matter of two weeks as I just had to go through some iron injection sessions. This is something that happened naturally and had nothing with me spending time on games. However I still spend more time in front of the computer than I would like to but that is because my work and studies simply require me to be in front of the computer and there are no alternatives to that.

I'd say KEEP THAT RIG! You'll always want go back to it to play a few games to chill or kill some free time.
I think gaming-caused social isolation varies from person to person.
I have a few friends who game much LESSER than me but DON'T do much MORE social than me.
Isolation is sometimes caused by the person's personality themselves.
Like someone mentioned, you need to know how to BALANCE your life.
I'm working full time in a fairly distant city from my hometown (about 1.5 hours drive away).
I game almost every night during the weekdays and always go for a drink on Friday night with friends and colleagues (TGIF, brah) and I sometimes meet new friends there. NEVER turned down an invitation for any kinda social events because you want to GAME or you're LAZY.
Weekends? I'll drive back to my hometown to see my family and spend some time with them (dinner, chats). Even watching TV together is a good bonding time with families.
Time for sports/exercise? I go for hiking on every (almost) Sunday morning with a few friends. Also, hit the gym at least twice per week.

Most ppl call us gamers introverts or anti-social groups of people. What about themselves (looking at you drama-addicts)?

And yes. I don't have a gf yet. It's my own problem, not so much into commitment (and you get to flirt around without worries).
