I am not sure how someone cannot think like a programmer after becoming fluent in a programming language. I guess you could try looking at things and thinking how you could program how they would work. Like if you see something swinging think about the algorithm you would use to make something do that. Or if you see a math equation think about how you program that to work out. If you are into game development, think about how you could create something you see and what kind of methods you would use. Other than that I think it is something that would just come to you with the more time you spend programming. I can't help but think like a programmer all the time and sometimes it is annoying. The reason I say annoying is because if I see something and get an idea, I cannot stop thinking about it till I get it down on code.

Unfortunately, that is something you'll really only get a good handle on through experience. Choose an approachable game idea -- if this is your first game I would recommend something reasonably simple such as Pong or Tetris -- and set about trying to make it. Make sure you create a complete game, including the actual gameplay, menus, high-scores, pause screens, etc. Along the way you'll be forced to come up with ways to approach putting the whole thing together, and can ask for help or feedback on the areas that you can't figure out or where your own solutions seem sub-optimal.
im talking about how to go about doing something. I wanna write a game:
after that its a blur, on how to do go about putting everything together
