    Yup I finally did it, it took me a while to realize how much of my life it was sucking up.

    Now to make some money!

    Congrats. I need to give up COD modern warfare. I have cut down a lot. I use it a incentive to complete work.

    You of all people must know how hard it is to stop when you get into it, you tell yourself "ill just play for 30 minutes" 3 hours later..... Oh Sh*T

    You gave up fun? That's pretty sad man.

    You should manage your time better, god knows I don't spend all my time working.

    and you read them all and decided to comment ;)


    Good job, Oscar. I wish I quit them looonnngg ago. I wasted a good 4 years solely playing first person shooters. Stick with it and as with any addiction, enough time passes and you won't even crave it anymore.

    His point is to point out that your point was hypocritical considering that his point (OP) was to stop wasting time, when in fact, reading all of his posts, is also, in fact, a waste of time.

    so i guess that applies to him as well since he replied to my pointless reply and by reading this thread.

    The fact is, I wasn't the one saying I should stop playing this or that and get back to making money. He was, and yet he's making all these garbage threads. I never said I have problems with managing my time so I don't think I'm being hypocritical and I don't feel that I am wasting my time reading his threads and not making money. I'm at work right now so I am getting paid every minute though I should be working. (this is not targetting you kayzne)
