look dude, there's nothing wrong with porn but like all things in life you gotta moderate or it will consume you

swapping one disposable media addiction for another isn't gonna work

are you exercising regularly, what's your diet like?

do you work, go to school, study anything rigorously?

any girlfriends, flings, so on around you to engage with such that your so called dopamine fix isn't just masturbatory nothingness lost in the pornographic void?

do you take drugs, do you drink?

all things have momentum (and you start from 0 or eventually run red when your health depletes and you die), yer either circling the drain or you are taking steps toward a better (stable) life

Good news for you, Steam has both Koikatsu Party and Custom Order Maid on sale right now. Both are VR compatible too (¬‿¬)

as far as compulsive masturbation goes: the thing that kills my libido more than anything is when i start vipassana sitting (meditation) for 2+ hours per day, gone for weeks without any nonsleeping ejaculations. Unfortunately it sets my depression off and i get suicidal, so yeah if you want to have the sex drive of a dhutanga monk, and dont have any diagnosed mental illnesses, meditation is worth a go.

.........

& i tried the all beef carnivore diet (organic, grass fed from tkranch) after jordan peterson talked about it. Eating the same shit 3x per day, even if it was fucking delicious dead cow became such a chore...i couldn't do it.

i do find keeping total net carbs under 100 per day and NEVER eating high fructose corn syrup is the best for me. Nothing to with chronic masturbation, just in general.

Have you considered combining these 2 vices into 1 mean of consumption. BMX XXX for example or any of the "story-driven" dating simulators on steam will offer enjoyable gameplay with the *cough* relief *cough* of the finest in gentlemen's entertainment.

Jordan Peterson was instructed by his daughter who still learns about this diet. If you have eaten lean steaks only (3x per day) then no wonder it has not worked for you. Was it raw, fermented, rare, medium or well done? What about beef brain, bone marrow, bone broth, suet, liver, kidneys and other organs? Any eggs from pasture raised hens? What about mackerel, wild shellfish, cod liver, wild alaskan salmon, salmon roe or sardines? Then there is raw dairy - clabbered (soured) milk, cheeses, soured cream, cultured butter, kefir.

When you feel like bashing the bishop, choking the chicken, spanking the monkey, waxing the carrot, tugging the slug, badgering the witness, pulling the pope, wrestling the eel, jerkin' the gherkin, beating the meat, liquidating the inventory, make a concerted effort to do something else. Eat some chocolate and fire up a game or a movie or something. Sooner or later you'll "slip up", but that's not a problem really, as long as you're not doing it more than the 5 times a day that is normal you're in the clear.

It's a good thing DS is coming out now. Should be a good kickstarter for you to occupy your mind while you begin this change in your life. I still PMO more than I think I should, so I'm gonna try this alongside you as well.

With Kojima by our side!

I hope I wasn’t too flippant earlier. I really didn’t know if you were being satirical or not.

Any addiction impacting your happiness and what you want to do with your life is serious. Yes, some are harder to talk about, but still important anyway. I totally believe you can accomplish your goals, and achieve more happiness in your life.

One thing though, you can’t rely on anybody but yourself for happiness. If an awesome relationship comes along, that’s great, but you need to love yourself and your life (as best as you can, we all have struggles) first and foremost.

I've started to love myself these past few days and it helped me do things that I never thought I'd could. Simple things like continuing on a game from my backlog, watching an anime that I'm close to finishing, etc.

Loving myself was something I dreaded for years. I think I'll start to do so for my own sake.

Hope you're doing well MHK, and that your time away is positive. How's the battle going? I'm wishing for the best. I'm sure I can speak for others, as well as myself, when I say we miss you here and look forward to when your crazy ass comes back.

In my experience, more gaming is directly negatively correlated with poon-tang....which would, in turn, be positively correlated with increase urge for PMO. Remedies are marriage to a certain extent, girlfriend who games or hookers.

Soldier on, friend


....don't shake my hand.
