Video Game Detox - Day 21 of 30

I’ve just gone from somewhere with pretty lousy internet to somewhere with lightning fast internet. When I cleared all of the games off my computer, it was going to be an agonizingly slow process to download any again. Not to mention having a low data cap so big games like Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag were simply off the menu. But now those games can be swiftly replaced with ease, the temptation to do just that is now very strong.

It reminds me of when I quit smoking. A packet of cigarettes down the road at the petrol station is a lot easier to resist than a packet of cigarettes in the glove box of my car.

I've resisted downloading Black Flag today. Can I resist again tomorrow?
