The next one being reading reluctantly, and only because quite simply... you should do it, and the third stage being that you actually want to grow deeper in scripture and are desiring the teachings of the Bible. It's important to do the reading, even if you don't want to, because it does spawn reading because you WANT to.
So reading for the same amount of time as gaming would be a real eye opener, and really help that "second stage" process.

After a week or so, I stopped playing video games AND had slipped into stage one for Bible reading. If done properly, (it takes will power) I’d say it can really lead to a better appreciation of how much time one spends in the Bible, though.

When I said I was going to get rid of games it does not mean I would just leave them lying around it just meant I would pack them up in boxes so they would not be seen or tempted to play. I hope this this answers your questions.
