This is my first trip in a long time, when none of my consoles travels with me. 
I've got some other things to do like reading books and gaining exp points and leveling up inn my new position as Chief Officer. 
But how long have You been far from Your main gaming system? 
SONY should hurry up with Vita...

First, I have no idea what the hell you're talking about.

Second, I went about 2 years without my gaming system from 13-15. Sucked, but I did get to travel around to like 5 different countries.

For nine weeks you've had NO gaming, NO sex, and NO alcohol?  NO SEX?!
 
Let me call the graveyard...

That is downside of seaman profession. 
And believe me. 9 weeks is relatively short sailing time. I can only immagine those guys who stay on board at sea up to one year.  
It is cargo ship with male crew. 
No Sex if You are a straight man. 
Good thinng is. When Yoou come back home, You do not care about job for 9 weeks.

Who said no sex? What happens on a boat, stays on a boat.

I can stand no games, but no alcohol and no sex (not even masturbation) as well? What are you travelling as, a priest?

At sea all sex is straight sex.

I went on holiday to Sri Lanka for a month and had NOTHING. The TV was in another language, no console, no handheld device, crappy food, ugh, i want to forget.

Can't recall, as I have never really been in a situation like that. I guess there was the time I lived down in the states with my aunt for 6 months. I had my computer and I was on it all the time, but there was no way to sit at the computer in any way that let me play games on it, so I spent the time just watching movies and the like.

But Thanks. 
What I meant was quality sex. 
There is PS2 and Wii. But I meant personnal system. 
No alcohol on board. Company's policy. You may drink ashore(schedule is not favourable).

You'll be fine.  Drinking is no big deal, games are games (learn to play stuff other than a video game) and sex is covered under masteurbation.  Welcome to the real world.

Good luck surviving that, mate. Still, if you have plenty of great books to read then it shouldn't be too hard to do. I know that I could probably survive on reading and internet alone, without videogames to play. I have about 30 books sitting around at the moment that I need to read because I just buy more and more of them over the course of time. For example, I bought sevenmor today and the same happened on Thursday and Friday of this week, on top of the other books I have not yet read. If you have something similar in your case then you should be fine.

I was fine for many years. 
I was just curious and wanted to know from other gamers, how long were they enforced to stay away from their home set up. 
I've completed many games while on board. 
There will be a huge pool of AAA titles when I come back home and more to come during holidays.

I bought Kindle 3 just before i signed on. Great device. Lots of staff to read. Thats what I do now. There are few stories from L.A.Noire authors in Kindle store for free.

I wonder if I should add in Related to: "straight sex" and remove "PS Vita"?

Posted by keyhunter

I've gone longer without those things. I live in one of those fancy middle of wilderness work camps. There are girls there. But I don't want to catch syphilis.

I heard about those as well, but I don't own a Kindle. I like having a physical collection of books on my shelves because I can see my own reading progress and stuff. I'm hoping that the L.A. Noire stories are published because that game would translate impossibly well into a collection of books. Perhaps that collection of stories will be published at sometime in the future: I would love that.

I couldn't last like... three days without some form of sex. I'm being dead honest right there. I guess I could, but I'd go through some inner war agasint myself, and I'd probably end up sobbing in a corner for three more days, until i'd get to a zen state of mind, free of my own needs.
