Good for you I'm glad you were able to recognize it was becoming a problem and stop it before it took over.

Wow, good on you.
I know someone who stays on his xbox for all his free time, I can't imagine him being able to sell it.

I hope everything works out for you then.

Re: xbox - January 29th 2010, 11:02 PM

If thats how you feel then thats good for you

Although Im just wondering whether you tried cutting down on the time you spend on there etc?
Just because I know a lot of people find it difficult to stop playing, and when they get a new game play it everyday etc.
So yeh just wondered if you tried cutting down the time you spent?

I think that's a good plan. If it's becoming addictive and consuming most our your time, the best idea is to get rid of it.

I'm not sure selling it was the best thing for you. Instead, I would have made a plan about cutting down on Xbox. You never know, you might regret it later on and end up spending your money again.

Good for you though, getting rid of an addiction (especially to a gaming addiction) can be really hard.

Good job! I know what it's like to give up something that you are addicted to. Nice work on stopping it before it becomes too much!

I think that could be a better idea.
Maybe come up with a few other options for things you could do instead of playing on your xbox.
So if your trying to keep yourself away frm playing and you dont feel like working out instead that day, maybe read a book or watch a film or start learning something new instead
Its always good to have a few distractions so then you have options to keep yourself motivated to do other things apart from play.

I could never sell my wii, not because I'm addicted but because it took me a long time to have all the games, etc. I have but it was a good idea to cut down your playing time.
Good job.
