Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking Weed, Playing Video games, and watching Porn. You need to STOP doing these things!

Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking Weed, Playing Video games, and watching Porn. You need to STOP doing these things!

Don’t drink, smoke, or take drugs (including digital drugs like video games, and internet porn.

While Alcohol, smoking weed, or Tobacco or taking drugs might be fun for the short term it’s extremely damaging to your body not just physically but mentally. Even if you drink only 1-2 times a week it will make your energy levels fall and you will be very unproductive the next day when you could be studying or going to the gym or running etc.

When you are young, below 25 years old you need to focus on your career and life.

I have seen many people who had nice ideas lose their ambition because they started smoking weed and got addicted to it and then they started playing video games all day while living at their Moms.

As a young man, your ambition is your driving force, and without ambition, you’re already dead. Don’t put ambition killers in your body, they might kill you without you realizing it.

While we all know that Alcohol, smoking (Tobacco and Weed) and Drugs are bad for your body phisically and mentally and you should avoid them like the plague especially when you are young. Nobody talks about Internet Porn and Video games. These 2 will be the biggest dopamine drugs in the coming century. Combine them with smoking weed and you get the deadliest mix of them all. a lazy couch mofo smoking weed and playing games all day long.

Internet Porn

There is nothing more detrimental to a young man than pornography. It saps you of vitality and energy, it robs you of motivation and momentum, and it leaves your body empty and tired.

Men are wired to want sex. When you hit puberty, your body starts getting flooded with testosterone, and your libido suddenly goes from 0 to 100.

And that’s when the Google searches start for most children.

“Boobies”
“Sex video”
“Sex boobs”

And now you have an entire generation that has been watching porn since they were 13. 18 year olds have been watching porn for half a decade or more!

You can see it in their eyes – tired, dark circles, and a drained face. They have no spirit left in them: no energy, no momentum, no ambition.

Modern culture tells you that it’s “perfectly normal” to watch porn. But they could not be more wrong.

There’s nothing normal about endlessly masturbating to a million different images of women you don’t know and probably will never see in real life to get a quick dopamine hit so your addicted brain can finally calm down for a few hours.

Just because everyone does it does not make it “normal”, it only makes it common. And yes, there’s a massive difference.

5 Reasons to Stop Watching Porn

1. You will have more energy and vitality: When you stop masturbating and watching porn, you’ll find that you have far more energy throughout your day. So much energy, in fact, that it can get hard to sleep if you don’t expend it with a nice workout.

You will find yourself lifting more weight and more often, you’ll have fewer energy slumps, no more brain fog, and your body will have far more vitality than usual.

This is something you have to experience to truly understand – the difference is tremendous. In fact, for many of you addicted since-your-early-teens people, even taking 2-3 days off from masturbation and porn will give you a taste of what you’re missing.

2. You will be more ambitious: When you watch porn, you tell your body that you are already sexually successful. After all, your brain thinks that it has thousands of women for itself. (Your brain cannot tell the difference between pixels and real life.)

When you stop watching porn, you will find yourself to be far more ambitious. You’ll want to achieve more, you’ll want to be strong and successful, you’ll actually talk to pretty girls you see – and you will be repulsed by the idea of being a fat loser who watches TV all day.

3. Your testosterone levels will rise*: Men evolved to reproduce, i.e. to seek and have sex with as many women as possible. Our DNA wants us to find women to have sex and make babies with.

That’s why we have high testosterone levels. More testosterone = more libido = more motivation to have sex.

When we are sexually successful, our testosterone levels decline – our bodies “take it easy”.

When you watch porn, your body thinks that you are very sexually successful, even when you’re not.

Porn makes your body think it no longer needs to motivate you to search for women, so your testosterone levels fall.

(This is why testosterone in men drops once they get married. And in line with point #2, you’ll see by simple observation that most men get a significant decline in ambition once they get married.)

When you stop watching porn, your body will once again start increasing testosterone production. This is beneficial to you in more ways than one.

Testosterone is what makes men strong and powerful – it makes our bones denser, our muscles grow bigger and faster, and it makes us more dominant.

It affects our libido, body fat distribution (women are soft and curvy because they barely have any testosterone), muscle mass, bones, and even the production of red blood cells and sperm.

Men with low testosterone feel lazy, tired, depressed, and weak. They can’t think clearly. They become physically weaker. They are less dominant. They even have lower stamina.

One could even say that they are lesser men (for they lack the traits of men – dominance, strength, energy, initiative, a desire to conquer and protect, etc.).

In other words, quitting porn will not only make you more energetic and ambitious, but the ancillary increase in testosterone will also leave you better off in a myriad of ways – from physical strength of the body to the will of the mind.

(* Technically speaking, abstaining from porn doesn’t increase testosterone levels itself. Porn and sexual satiety kill off your androgen receptors (more). Your body can’t do much with testosterone if it has few androgen receptors for the testosterone to bind to. People who have been watching porn for years have very few androgen receptors left.

Quitting porn allows your body to recover androgen receptors – in other words, it allows testosterone to do its thing – your body gets to make use of all the testosterone it already has. The effects are, of course, very similar to an increase in testosterone levels itself.)

4. Porn shrinks your brain: Porn is addictive in the same way as hard drugs like cocaine and heroin. It hacks the reward circuity of your brain by giving you extreme dopamine rushes and makes you crave more of it.

Over time, you need stronger and rougher porn to get off. Your brain becomes desensitized to regular porn – just how drug addicts have to keep increasing their dosage to get the same high, porn addicts have to keep increasing the intensity of the porn they are watching to get the same highs.

People go from watching normal sex, to watching anal, to looking for porn when the woman is in pain but not screaming the life out of her, to BDSM. The intensity of the videos keeps rising.

Some people even start watching gay porn even when they’re straight because they need the sexual intensity and variety.

All of this extreme stimulation ends up damaging the structure of your brain. Watching porn shrinks your brain.

“Men who watch a lot of porn tend to have a smaller striatum, an area of the brain linked to rewards and motivation.

The study also found that the connection between the striatum and the prefrontal cortex – the part of the brain associated with behaviour and decision making – degraded with increased porn watching.”

“They found that higher number of hours viewing porn correlated with a reduction in grey matter in an area of the brain called the right caudate nucleus.”

“An association was also found between higher porn consumption over many years and less grey matter in this brain area.”

5. You get a major competitive advantage: While all of your friends and colleagues are out there spilling their seed and drowning in porn and losing physical strength, ambition, and alertness in the process, you are out there full of energy and working on yourself, your business/career, and your relationships.

You have more time because you spend none of it jacking off to a screen, and the extra time and energy means you get to invest more in the things that matter to you. Compound interest takes care of the rest.

How do I stop watching porn?

The best way to stop watching porn is to just stop watching it. Go off of masturbation and porn – keep your hands in control. In some time (say 2-3 months), you should find yourself recovering.

However, if you’ve been watching porn for years and decades – it’s going to be incredibly hard to stop at once. Do it anyway.

Video Games addiction

From when I was a mere child to my early twenties, I used to play video games.

From Pac-man and Pokemon and Mario to Grand Theft Auto Vice City and San Andreas and Final Fantasy X – you name it, I’ve probably played it.

I was a typical gamer kid – go to school, come back, play video games – usually alone, but occasionally with friends, and then go to sleep.

Rinse and repeat.

When I was young I didn’t have any ambition. I was just waiting for school to end so I can go home and play world of warcraft.

Fortunately as i got older around 22 years I stopped playing Video games. And moved to more important things in life. My only regret is that I didnt do it sooner.

That being said, I have some old friends from that time who still play video games in almost all of their free time – when they’re not at work and when they’re not mindlessly watching some or the other TV show smoking weed and faping to Porn before going to sleep.

And not just them – there are a lot of young men like this. The male version of “cat lady”.

No hobbies, no interests, no personal growth – nothing but high scores in various games.

With the dawn of games like DotA – the e-cocaine of games – the ones that have no story, no plot, and no end; you start playing one match, then another, then another – I’ve seen people sink in thousands of hours into video games.

Video game addiction is a serious topic that is destroying many young men and needs to be talked about, but if often ignored (just like its victims) or just humorously dismissed.

How to stop playing Video Games?

Step 1: Delete The Games

This is a simple step – just delete all the games on your computer.

If you play online games, delete your accounts.

Delete everything – your save files, your steam account, and block the websites.

If you don’t have them, you can’t play them.

Step 2: Get Rid of The Console

If you have a gaming console, say a PS2 or whatever, sell it or give it away.

If you have a computer, downgrade the hardware so it’s usable for everything except video games.

If you don’t have them, you can’t play them.

Step 3: Find Alternative Entertainment

Whenever you try to break any addiction, the real fight is the dopamine withdrawal that comes with it.

You need to find alternative sources of entertainment to “fill the void”, so to speak.

You could go out more, take up real-life sports, start getting into reading novels, or a variety of other hobbies.

Personally, I’d pick novels (I used to love those as a teenager) – scroll to the bottom of the book recommendations page to find the entertaining books section and pick out something you think you might like.

Step 4: Give it Time and Let Yourself Grow

Will your entire life change in a day of not playing video games? No.

In a year? Probably. (Especially if you also stop watching porn.)

When you are not bombarding yourself with so much dopamine, your body naturally wants you to go out and get some.

This new ‘desire’ will “fix you” over time – you will get in touch with people, find yourself going out more, make new friends, and build a life worth living.

If you’re were an enterprising person, you’ll have the drive to start that business return.

Your “world” will change.

Currently, your world contains video games, porn, TV shows, your work, and other people living the same way.

Over time, your world will change from that to things that give you meaning, your hobbies, time in the gym, good books, your work (plus some side income), better friends – the things that matter to you that you finally pursued.

And once you get used to your new world, you’ll look back at your old self and wonder, “What the fuck was I thinking? Why didn’t I quit earlier?”

But you need to give yourself that chance and the time to grow.

MY CONCLUSION

So my recomendations are:

Quit Alcohol, Drugs, Smoking, Internet Porn, Playing Video Games, Watching countless Netflix videos, and pointless Youtube Videos. Start running, Bicycling, and hit the Gym. Get a Job. Start a side hustle open an e-commerce store learn to sell stuff online. Learn to invest your $$ into stocks, Gold, Silver. Get some sort of passive income streams via crypto miners real estate. when you get an idea write it down! I get most of my ideas when driving running or doing something monotonous and if I don’t write them down I forget them 90% of the time. If I write them down I am forced to do it otherwise it stays on Google keep forever until I give it a checkmark 🙂

Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of educational videos on Youtube but 90% of all the videos on youtube are total crap. I suggest you install an addon to your chrome or Brave browser called BlockTube where you can block all the stupid channels. Like what did KimKardashian eat 2 days ago, Lady gaga taking a shower etc.

Also if you can’t stay away from Instagram, Facebook, and porn websites I recommend that you install the ColdTurkey app on your PC. That’s how you can disable all those websites and you won’t be able to access them. That’s what I use.

Don’t squander your time and potential on things that are scientifically engineered to be highly addictive and attention-grabbing: junk food, internet porn, TV shows, clickbait news, video games, and social media – this time comes from the time that should have been spent on building businesses, relationships, networks, and other valuable assets.

As more and more people choose to waste their life, it becomes easier for people who are serious about their time to stand out – the competition is taking itself out, and now an essential part of the game is to avoid falling
into the traps that everyone else is falling in.
