In brief: To truly

Answer that question, you really need to talk it over with a psychiatrist in your area.
All of us tend to focus better on things we like! but for now, disconnect the xbox and put it away. This will limit your playing time as you will have to get it out and reconnect each time. And set a goal of playing no more than 1 hour per day. Ask those around you for help to create external structure.
