I'm coming to my wits end with this shit. I'm getting tired of feeling drained and passionless towards what I used to love. I want to write again. I want to enjoy playing games again. I want to wake up and not feel like I got to fap first just to get out of bed. I want to feel something other then nothing.

The thing is when I try I always fall right back in. I've made it three days and I saw some cleavage and suddenly got horny I thought I would collapse. I left and had to drive home but the urge would go away! I couldn't fight it and I felt so disgusted with myself. The moment I got home, I had to jerk it.

How do you guys deal with these urges? How do I get a life back?

so far from my experience of fasting it seems that i don't feel like i'm wanting to masturbate as often and it seems that 48 - 72 hour fasts completely reset my brain and so far each time i break my fasts it seems that when i eat is the time my sex drive and my lust for porn is the highest
also the frequency of wet dreams i have is now almost weekly since i started fasting, i'm not sure if wet dreams change the frequency of lustful urges or not
all in all i think prolonged fasting is the key to breaking porn addiction

Happy New Year /ub/. We all know New Years' resolutions are a popular way that people try to effect positive changes in their life. This board is all about that, so tell me, what are your resolutions for 2020 and beyond? It is even the start of a new decade (depending on who you ask), so all the more reason to view today as the start of a new chapter in your life.

Here are mine:
>NoFap 2020
My best streak last year was 29 days and it was doing me a great good. At the very least I need to go 90 days this time around.
>Limit internet usage
I have blocked most time-wasting websites for most hours of the day. That includes 4chan, after all nothing useful happens there anymore.
>No background music when working at the computer
It's either distracting or I don't notice it's there, so why even bother? I can focus better in silence anyway.
>Read more
Despite taking the redpill I have yet to read any of the suggested literature to form an intellectual foundation. Three days a week, one hour a day, should be easy right?
>Go to church
I am not religious by nature but it seems like the best time to find a family-oriented young woman would be Sundays.

I think that to increase the odds of success you should make multiple resolutions and make effort on all of them. Hopefully at least one will stick. I was able to keep one resolution from 2019 (lifting) which has already improved my life significantly. So let's hear them, /ub/.

Until now I kept my opinion only to myself, but it looks like you won't figure out how to solve your dilemma.
Let me point you at the Seb's threads >>>/sp/14435 and >>>/sp/11605
Read them carefully, analyze Seb's mind and what /mlpol/ says. Them you might come to scary conclusions. For example, to retaliate against his tormentors will make the bullying infinitely worst; to keep course will keep his suffering alive; but, perhaps, only perhaps, to remake himself into something better might do the trick.
By the way, to off yourself or run away won't fix the problem, the key to success is inside you.

I don't think you do understand.

Bullies come in different flavors different mind sets ranging from the most bland to the most horrific horrors dreamt up by man.
One mind set is the social homogeneity, they want you to conform in some manner. Sometimes it's for good reason, sometimes it's because you are too different, and sometimes it's for a harmful personality trait. Sometimes it's because they are just being a dick.
Other times they don't want you in their social circle. Or they are trying to prove something to someone else by continuing.
It's not that you can't the horror of life is that anything and everything is in your reach. In your ultimate freedom. it is that you ought not to do so.
>my nature is being a freak
Details, information, context changes everything. I need context to maximize the help I can give. Not personal details, just hypothetical general situation kind of stuff. How many bullies how often? What do they say? What do they do? Context matters it's the difference between an accident and deliberate action.

Life becomes a lot easier when you realize how silly modernity is.
Everything around us is just a shared delusion, what society says is just what the "group" says and once you choose not to follow the group, you become an outsider, someone from other social group. This means that with some charisma you can make your own social group within society, a social group that can turn into an organization and maybe even a whole society of it's own, with enough time and resources.

Women take things for granted, they don't feel obligated to repay things like good men do.
When someone's nice to a woman, she assumes it's because she deserves it.
When someone's mean to a woman, she assumes it's because she deserves it. That's why abusive men turn trash women on, dumbasses legitimately think only the abusive men treat their trashy asses "properly". Plus the thought of a big scary brutish man who takes what he wants and can't be controlled by them turns women on.

I had a thought today. I always thnk that it is a shame that we have to deal with the way things are insteat of what things could be like and I started to apply that thought to myself.
Normally I come here to try to become a somewhat decent human being, which means going from the bottom to the mid.
Today I had the very rare thought that I acutally might be not (always) as bad as I think.

Despite being overweigt I got an acceptablt body with an very good imune system and strenght.
Despite being a retard my IQ is his enough to get a masters degree.
Despite being socially inept I managed to make some good friends and get girls interested and become somewhat alpha in certain groups and even managed to shift some votes.
I can into arts and science and philosophy and crafts and IT and office and…

I am human waste but despite that I see the possibiblity to get something done.
What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?

14401 No.1134

>What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?
That is a good question, and I am first to admit I don't think I know the answer. I know what I would have liked to have done. But I am not sure if it would have been the right way to go either. So take what I write with a good healthy dose of skepticism. Also sorry for rant.

I don't think unleashing your full potential always is necessary. I think it is more important to be content (or happy if you are lucky) with life.

Lets say you are going to have kids. The most important I think is that you have time for them after work. Don't chase after a job that will stress you out, or wear you out. Try to find something that you never have to bring home. And I think most importantly that it is a bit varied so you don't do the same thing day in and day out, and that it is work that you can say is done and complete at one point. As an example a house is complete at one point, a web-server will always need monitoring updates ad infinitum.
Sure a house needs maintenance but it is varied maintenance and seldom time critical (sure roof can become leak, but nothing a tarp or bucket can't temporary fix and give you some extra time). A web-server that is compromised needs to be fixed ASAP and you can't leave until it is fixed. But as a house-builder you will not get calls asking why the house needs a new layer of paint after 10 years. You might get a call on a web-server on why twitter feed don't show up anymore because twitter chose to change their API a year later.

Sure hard work and late nights building your own business can pay of in the long run and grant you much more that if you choose to just be a worker raising your kids. So it is also something to keep in mind. Lots of work in start for potential big gain or an steady pace to retirement.

So far, it seems good and it's helped me read a lot faster. But I'm asking you lads, is it any good? Are there any side effects to reading classical literature at 650WPM? I can remember the books I've read using this, so I don't think there are any downsides like that.

>I just lost 4 pounds since then by cutting my diet down to 1200-1400 calories a day.
What's your estimated TDEE?

Bodyweight tends to bounce around a lot which is noticeable if you measure it every day. I've been pretty consistent at an estimated -500 kcal/day balance which has led to about 15 lbs lost in as many weeks, but there was a 19 day period where I thought something was wrong because the downward trend stalled. But I stuck with -500 kcal/day and one day all of a sudden I jumped downward back onto the -1 lb/wk trendline where I stayed.

My point is four pounds in a few days is probably just a fluctuation, as was your stall (if you were truly eating at an energy deficit). I'd be surprised if you lost more than a pound of bodyfat in that time even at 1300 kcal/day. Unless you weigh like 400 lbs.

11630 No.1932

I just looked into that today. I think my base is around 1500 but I don't like how they do the daily exercise multiplier. I run 6 or so times a week but I'm not sure it's as intense as they're claiming. So I used 1.55. My stall lasted 3 weeks though which was making me pull my hair out. I think the issue was I was snacking on Halloween candy but justifying it by saying "Hey I just burned 400 calories running, I deserve a sweet snack." Turns out it doesn't work that way, so I stopped.

>I think my base is around 1500 but I don't like how they do the daily exercise multiplier.

That seems low. May be about right for the basal metabolic rate contribution if you're around 150 lbs. But that's the amount you'd burn if you were in a coma. If you run that often 1.55 seems right but if that's included your calculator has placed you at 1000 kcal BMR in which case why the fuck are you worried about losing weight, lanklet?

>Turns out it doesn't work that way, so I stopped.

Too right. Bet if you accounted for all that candy it added up to > 1000 kcal/wk. That's > 1/4 lb of bodyfat you're preserving each week by giving into your cravings.

>Also congrats on working hard and keeping it off, my man.

I haven't visited here in a long time. If you know who I am, then no need to bother with a recap on my life story. If not, it doesn't matter either way.

I'm sending in my two weeks' notice at my job. Too little training for my current position, too heavy a workload, nowhere near enough pay, only barely enough hours to make my living. I am getting a phone set up in the morning, and when it's all ready I'll be sending my applications to anywhere that'll take me.

Let's talk career paths, jobs, and finances. I don't believe /ub/'s ever talked at length about this topic, and perhaps my own situation could be made into a case study to help others in my shoes.

I do not wish to spend money on college or university, although I may go for a trade school education if need be. I have only a year's experience in grocery work, and very little saved up. I have a housing situation that I cannot escape until next July, with a somewhat steep rent. Preferred jobs would be productive labor - but in the literal sense of making something tangible. Things like construction, HVAC, plumbing, carpentry, smithing, welding. Area is mostly urban, no agricultural work near where I live. How would I go about getting most of these jobs?

File unrelated. Although related to my mood.

Hey man keep your chin up. As far as testing for those driving jobs, in the oil fields they usually have a trainer's truck equivalent to what you normally drive for that line of work that you will go testing with. So you will go take the test in the company truck the driving portion of the test is proctored at the DMV. Alternatively they might choose to send you to a local community college for CDL training. That's what my outfit did after I got past my probationary period, back in the day.
If you wanted to skip the oil fields and go straight to driving they have CDL training courses at many community colleges usually cost about five grand and take 6-8 weeks, but the oil field specific schools can be as short as three weeks. There is a good handful of over-the-road trucking companies that will pay you to go to school as long as you commit to driving for them for a year. The pay for those guys can suck but it's better than what you're going to get at the pizza place. Swift, Warner, CR England, Knight transport etc have those kinds of programs. In those cases you will be testing in the schools truck when testing time comes.

Any which way you go when you take your knowledge and written test when you apply for your CDL learner's permit try to study up and get the extra testing for your tanker. Hazmat has to come later after you have the CDL, because the hazmat requires a thorough background check and fingerprints which requires an existing CDL. But the tanker is your starting point whether you're hauling milk water cement powder anything that goes into a tank pressurized or dry.

That's the problem for me. It doesn't matter what I say, or what I do. If I don't have prior experience, they won't hire me. They probably don't even check my goddamn resume if I don't write down prior experience, no matter how simple the job is.

I found a place in the local Reader that was advertising for construction work. Only stated requirement was a valid driver's license and English speaking ability. I got turned away because they said I needed training. But the advertisement said that they were willing and able to train.

I might be a little late on this, but remember, from the coldest ashes rises the pheonix which burns brightest. Don't waste time worrying about what could have been, spend time thinking about where things can go from here and what it will take to get you there. I don't know you, and I don't know your situation; but when I was at my lowest even getting out of bed felt like a hurculean task. Start small. Resolve to go for a walk a few times a week, or to write a funny scene, or even to just clean your place. The smallest thing can really make a world of difference.

Hang in there anon. Don't worry about the past, and don't worry about tomorrow. The road you are traveling might be rough but it is not a straight road to the bleak future you see ahead. There will always be forks in the road that can take you to places you didn't know you wanted to go to. Small coincidences can change your outlook on the future 180 degrees in a short while and lead you to a place you feel happy about. Just because it is bleak now don't mean the future has to be. I hope you find happiness and love, even the joy of playing with a pet can do wonders.
I don't think your ancestors view you as a failure, you did not wish for the future that has become, you are among the few who actually wants to honor them.

>this isn't the life i wanted or thought i would have at 23
I would be laughing similarly to >>1854 but I'm too sad to laugh lately. I'm at 21 and have been feeling the same frustration since I moved out of my parents' house ten months ago. I told myself I would only be seeking rent for one year and then use the money I saved to make a down payment on a shitty shack in Fresno, but not only will it not be so soon, I am unemployed and in debt. I have no money, no job, and nobody's offered to take me save for two employers who I failed to live up to on interview day.

But it's not the end. As much as I would like for it to end, it will continue for a long time. Nothing is irreversible, and no matter how hard you want to just lie down and die, you know it's not going to happen that way. When it matters most, you're going to be animated and push yourself in the last moments. Whether it be when you become homeless, or when you're on your last scrap of food, you will fight for the chance to live. It's in your blood to fight, and no amount of depression and Jewish repression will kill that part of you.

Your ancestors look down with confusion and frustration, no doubt, but it is not solely you who they are frustrated at. It's their descendants who failed to raise their progeny properly, and it's the boomers who inherited great wealth and squandered all of it, leaving a generation of untrained, confused children to pick up the mess. We can all relate, I'm sure. At least the zoomers and millennials among us.

I've started couch to 5K and am applying at some mom and pops and service positions that I know are hiring. I used up the last scrap of my savings for glasses so I can get trained for a trucking job if they take me.

If you ever want to talk, I'll be in this thread, and if you need a private place to vent or talk things out, I'll be at http://steamcommunity.com/id/flutterbutterstutter .

So, /ub/ I have an idea to increase thread activity. Post here every time you think you've done something that improved your overall well-being. No IDs so no pressure, just include what you did, how long you did it, and how it helped you if it's a bit abstract. That is all, and happy posting.

Did 20 bench presses today


Good on you mate. I've been contemplating doing a thread where anons play the burpee game (deck of cards, on their turn player draws, and the value of the card determines the number of burpees to do). Not sure if that would catch on at all


Sounds fun but I just made a thread on sleep, sleep's important so a thread full of important sleep facts would be good.


Have slowly but surely whittled away at my more useless groceries for the sake of starting over on my diet. Had two mugs of tea and one piece of gum and it seems like I will be able to ration things out well throughout the day when my sleep gets fixed.


Guess the work shows slow incremental benefits but somehow it is difficult to adjust to being better, anyone else feeling the same way?

What are the best/most essential skills everyone should have for life/survival/employment? Obvious things like first aid/cpr, firearm use, and being able to fix adn repair things around the house come to mind, but is it worthwhile for the average person to get a HAM radio license, learn to do things like soldering and welding, or learn more than one language?

what do anons here know how to do? what are you learning? what would you recommend others learn to be able to do?

well what I want to research both in my personal time and eventually professionally is robotics and AI so
I don't think Spanish would be of much use to me Chinese would but I'm not sure if I really wan to work with the chinese based on what I've heard. Maybe Korean or German would be worthwhile

is there an easy way to go about learning organic agriculture and psychology or some books you'd recommend?

Dealing with the chinese Is hell, but these languages are useful for different reasons, english for communication, mandarin for business and the insane amount of chinese un the world and specially in stores and spanish not only because a lot of people speak it but it makes italian, french and portuguese easier to learn.

I cant give you an exact book on agriculture but i'm sure you can find some basics around, talking to people that work in farms Is also a great way to learn.

I don't think there is a good answer to this question or at least not a short one.
Basically you need to learn everything. But there are two main categories: shit hits the fan and steady going
In shit-hits-the-fan-scenarios you need to know how to defend yourself, to get clean water, to get food and to tend your wounds. Since humans are the biggest dangers to you you should learn learn about them (biology, how they act in certain situations (history, anthropology…), what drives them and what their priorities are (psychology) and all that other stuff)

Then in stable situations you should know how to keep your health as high as good as possible and to improve your situation. I think everyone should have a craft, a science, an art and a sport.
You will be usefull, know about nature and humans and be a and also are into social. Doesn't matter really which ones you start with as you will always build up your bases and expand into different shit. Like when you know how to work with wood you basically know how to work with iron and picking up welding takes like a day for the essentials (mastery takes a life in any endevour) and you will always learn things that carry over to other stuff. Even if the craft is not your main source of income you can use that to fix stuff or improve stuff or just make a few bucks plus it is something to fall back to if times get tough.
Basically learn to be at top performance and learn to learn.
also learn a different language because it is not just a different language but a different way to look at the world, a different culture and it opens up a whole ocean of new information you would have rudimentary access to even you were lucky

I have been thinking about identity latetly. It seems like society wants to transform you into a bot with labels like teacher-plays chess-hobby-gardening or salesman-plays-soccer-hobby-cook and it might make some things easier but it also feels like a vice and reduces you to a cog in the system. The worst part is that all that matters are the labels and people will take a shitty professionel over a great amateur. It also steers away from becoming a more rounded individual that increases his skill-set and reduces his flaws while increasing his strength.

I watched a series of tutorials on Fruity Loops, but now I'm downloading Mixcraft 7. Please teach me the methods you use to make music.
What makes Fruity Loops and Ableton Meme Tier? To me, Fruity Loops seems pretty good. It's got midi, it's got some knob-turning shit I've got no idea how to use, and it's got a VST option that lets me use the VSTs of old games. Sorry if that's super-basic shit every other program has and I look like a faggot right now.

I've been wanting to learn how to draw for a long time, but have never gotten around to it because I simply do not know where to start. On a scale of 1-10 my skill level is basically a 1. I can draw basic shapes, that is about it. I don't have any hobbies right now other than gaming and working out, and I would like to pick something else up.

I would preferably like to learn how to draw on a computer, most of the really nice art I see seems to be done that way now a days. As I stated earlier, my skill level is basically 1. I can draw basic circles and have used MS paint a few times, and have never touch any editing programs.

I have been wanting to do this for forever, but have been held back because I just have no idea how to start, or what even I should be doing for practice. Right now would be a great time for me to do this because I am currently somewhat incapacitated with some medical issues. Any tips/resources would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not good at drawing myself, but apparently I'm a very good teacher. I have helped many aspiring artists get started, so if you want help I'll be glad to offer some. We always need more artists for the fandom!

The very first word of advice I can give you is too just keep drawing! Practice is the key.
Don't stop; just keep trying and experimenting over and over, regardless of how shitty you may be. Try new things, and try them dozens of times. Experiment with concepts. Attempt to copy styles you admire once you get a hang of the basics.
Even little thumb sketches are progress. Make a habit out of doodling for fun. Carry a sketchbook as a hobby if you prefer. If you practice any skill enough times, you're bound to get half-decent at it.
And don't ever get discouraged just because you're bad at it. If you suck, that just means you're not practicing enough. Don't quit because your first thought after scribbling for 10 mintues is 'I'm not any good at this'.

i can teach you howto draw like a boss!
first of all, you need no skill and you need to forget what everyone else says like "when you draw often you get better!" because its wrong.

soooo here ==>
first of all, your lines have to be nice!
next, use some scissor and build a image out of images.
here a leg, here a arm, its way more easy to move the parts into fiting as everything else!
than, you have to draw it and cut it out from youre template.

…ok, you can make more. light and shadows as example, or some weather effects.
you need only a brain for it because these stuffs are simple as fuck, but i can give u a tip. copy the image, make it dark and erase some parts - these makes awesome light!
i also copy the image for the shadows on the background. just a bit bend and it fits perfect.

>Look with your eyes, not with your mind
That is the beginning of being a good artist. Your mind is great at handling concepts, but terrible at fine details, and if you base your drawings off of what you think you see, it will always look off. Masters and first-timers draw without references.
It takes getting used to, but practice makes perfect, and this applies to all artistic disciplines as well. Always use the relevant sense to pick apart what you want to recreate, instead of feeling your way through it in your mind's eye.
