If you haven't played OOT or are down to play it again, then OOT.
Otherwise, I really recommend Mario

You have to upload the avatar to something like imgur, and then use the link as the avatar source.

Dear God Derek really need to (at least) make a note on how to upload avatars...

thought this was a good read it's on breaking habits and forming better ones
http://blogs.plos.org/neurotribes/2012/03/20/breaking-the-habits-that-enslave-us-qa-with-charles-duhigg/

Quote
I think when most people think about changing their habits, they focus on the problematic behavior, on changing the habit itself. But thereís only so much willpower we can expend in a day. When someone says to themselves, ďOK, Iíve got to get in shape,Ē thatís an almost insurmountable mountain. But if you focus on the cues and rewards, making a change is more manageable. We know from studies that almost all cues ó the stimuli that elicit the habitual behavior ó fall into one of five categories. Itís time of day, or a certain place, or a certain emotion, or the presence of certain people, or a preceding action thatís become habitual or ritualized. This gives us a way to create an exercise habit that doesnít require saying ďIíve got to change my whole lifeĒ and beating up on yourself. Instead, what if you just say, ďEvery morning, or when I come home from work, Iím going to put on my running shoes.  Iím not even necessarily going for a run. Iím just putting on my running shoes. Thatís going to be my new habit.Ē If you do that a couple of days a week, eventually youíre going to go running.

Itís little shifts. Once you start running, youíre going to get into a running habit, right? But it starts with this small win. If as soon as you get home from work, you put on your running shoes ó even if you feel stupid about it! ó youíre creating a cue. The benefits of that small win will start cascading through your life.

Then you focus on the rewards. The first couple of times you go running, youíre not going to enjoy it. No one enjoys it the first time they run. So you have to give yourself a piece of chocolate when you get back from the run. You have to have some immediate reward.  And we know from studies that within two weeks, the intrinsic reward of running ó the endocannabinoids unleashed by exercising ó are going to become enough of a reward to create that habit. But you have to trick your brain into it by giving yourself a piece of chocolate the first couple times. And it has to be a reward you really enjoy. You canít say, ďIím going to start running, and my reward is going to be a salad and kale chips.Ē No one really enjoys that.

The sentiment is right because you don't tackle a huge problem all at once, but it sounds like conditioning and gamification.

In my experience, the best way to change deep habits is to actually remove rewards and cues. Acknowledge the problem is hard, be honest with your flaws and limitations, and start from the bottom. Motivation should be desire for personal benefit such as caring about yourself and wanting to do more things with your life, rather than cookies. You give yourself a cookie after a run, then you don't have time to run but you wanted to so, half a cookie. The next days you realize you have a box of cookies that requires no running. But the satisfaction of doing good in the world is hard won and hopefully worth fighting for.

I don't know if you can remove cues & rewards, they are what happen and rewards always occur whether good or bad, it's what you get from them or seek to get from them.  I think it's remarking on the reaction of noticing bad habits, and saying well I just have to stop it.  it's not really so simple as that, there are processes that trigger them, and in experience just being mindful of how the urge to do something I know I shouldn't be doing is triggered - the habit eventually wanes.  It might be because habits are an automatic reaction, and by turning the cues or triggers, into triggers of awareness of that habit, the urge to do it is gone.  I don't think it talks about using necessarily a carrot and stick method to overcoming bad habits, but the need for personal development whatever that means to you is the motivation.

actually acknowledging the problem* is already half the work and can even be the hardest part depending on what the problem is. by the time youve stopped lying to yourself about your bad habit, doing something about it comes naturally.

*acknowledgement goes deeper than just SAYING you have a bad habit. you actually have to FEEL it too

wel not really. I mean, akali is still good, she just kicked ass today. I mostly play Twitch and I still didnt leave when they nerfed him. Personally, I think that yes, the community may suck at times, but then again EVERY community has idiots in it. It's the nature of the internet - Being anonymous means that "nobody" will EVER know it was you who just did something utterly stupid, so why care? I've met some really good people there... could it be that EUNE is a good server(Cheesy)
