Summary

When people quit gaming, they're suddenly left with so much free time they have no idea what to do with it.
As a result, they deem their detox a failure and go back to gaming.
"I don't think I was meant to  quit gaming."
Usually, people end up going back to video games because they didn't put the systems in place beforehand to enable them to maintain a sense of direction after they quit and start the detox by hitting the ground running.
In this short episode of Gaming the System, James discusses how you can go about putting the necessary systems in place before you quit, to ensure you give yourself the best chance of success.

If you want to find out more, we go into way more detail in our recent guide on How to Quit Gaming in College!
