Giving up all addictions

Im addicted to masturbating, smokin weed, the internet (porn and forums) and i want to stop.

So this week im not going to masturbate or smoke weed at all and will only use the net once a day for a half hour to check emails and myspace.

I think doing this will add some more positive things to my life and help me from using them as escape mechanisms from reality.

I rely on the net for social interaction which cant be healthy.

This week im going to use my time by focusing on my diet (i lift weights) even more then usual and learning how to cook some new dishes.

I havent stepped foot in a grocery store in quite some time because of acne but fuck that shit i gotta do it and i want to do it.

So anyway this thread is just somethin i made to set my goals here into cyber stone so to speak. Feel free to add anything you would like to do this week and why.

I feel like being addicted to anything is a bad thing and my addictions really do control me. I havent pumped my shotgun since friday and i havent blazed since yesterday. So far so good. Although ive been struck with bouts of horniness.

Awesome! I admire you for being able to step up and make yourself cut back on everything that you feel is holding you back.

It takes a big person to admit all of those things, and an even bigger person to try to change them.

Much respect to you.

Good luck!

yeah good work lad, i have gotten rid off all my comp games cos i find i fall into those badboys when im down... gotta spend more time workin out, dj'ing, producing and drawing. motivation since starting accutane is massively diminished, but gotta soldier on, i don't want to look back on 6 months and have achieved nothing, when my skin may only get clear for a month. i slipped into eating bad again, pretty depressing, but no more! only way i cans top it is to always do grocery shopping, cos i only buy healthy stuff, to always keep the cupboards stocked, and to always make my lunch for work instead of buying shit from the deli.

and i give full points for the term 'pumping the shotgun'. but my wanking has gone to nothing now that my spirits are low, no drive :(

Firstly I'd have to say that all three of those things are not wrong, as long as you actually go outside of your house and have face to face social interaction.

It soundslike you have anxieties and have focused them into those three activities. By not doing these, your anxieties will probably be channeled into something else, i.e your weights.

Getting rid of obsession first starts with why you feel this way, and what doing these addictive acts do for you mentally.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Today has been THE MOST MISERABLE FUCKING DAY IVE HAD IN 06!!!!

Im just super stressed. My workout regimen is shitty because it involved changing weights and i work out at home so i have to load/unload weights every fucking exercise because part of the program is doing antagonistic exercises.. (ie, do 1 set of chest, then 1 set for back of whatever exercises your doing). and i just wasnt into it.

I miss being in a gym and seein PEOPLE, working out along side others. I had ZERO pump today.

Add to that i havent smoked the last 2 days (well today and yesterday) which is the longest ive gone in the last year or so.

PLUS the horniness factor, all i want is to get laid right now so thats a reason ive stayed away from masturbation to help build up my drive to go out and get pussy.

PLUS im currently in the process of moving, but i cant do it until the money i need comes to me which is also in process, ALSO i have to actually FIND an affordable apartment in a decent area of the new city im moving to.

All these things just fucking piss me off. My muscles feel flat and deflated (this gets me the most) and im jsut sick of everything today.

I heard my dad on themphone talking to proactiv about the delayed shipment and he was all saying "oh you only need a dime sized amount blablablablabla ur wasting it, using it too fast blabla".

YEAH ASSHOLE HOW WOULD U KNOW YOU DONT HAVE TO DO SHIT TO YOUR SKIN YOU SON OF A BITCH!

GODDDDD

I just cant wait to get the fuck out of my parents house and start my new life elsewhere in the big city with a new gym and new surroundings.

Right now im just stuck in this shit hole city plus my friend is sick and he keeps calling me to hang out but i dont want to get sick so i havent been answering his calls. which leaves me here pissed off with nothin to do anyway.

I just want to live.

the one addiction i havent been able to abstain from (and the one i SHOULD be abstaining from the most) is the internet. Ive been on here all day basically just going on forums and obsessively checking myspace and my emails for anything new.

GOD HOW FUCKING PATHETIC.

FUCK

FUCK FUCK

are you kidding me? none of those three things listed are bad - they are all completely natural.

as for the smoking, if you want to quit, I would instead suggest smoking once a week. the high is much more fun, and you are letting your lungs start to heal. then, if you want to cut back from that even more, you can, but it's all up to you. good luck.

you also save $

I know how you're feeling, seriously. It's like a beginning-life crisis. I hate the internet. These forums are depressing because we should all be out socializing with real people. I stopped lifting weights because I'm not motivated to... I don't see her anymore. I recently started smoking marijuana again, because life has become so dull. I can't wait to move out too. I want a fresh start. Are you in school?

To all you who think im joking or something. Read the thread title. It doesnt say "indulging in addictions once a week". it says GIVING UP ALL ADDICTIONS.

Yeah porn and jerkin it and weed is fine and dandy but when doing those things are all you do there is a problem. And its a problem that im solving. So please, refrain from giving me any suggestions on "cutting back" or any of that nonsense. I know what has to be done and this thread was meant to affirm my conviction in accomplishing my goals in ridding my life of this garbage.

To h0ppy : Yes i was in school for half a semester. It was a waste of money in a sense but it actually showed me what i truly wanted to do with my life so it wasnt a complete waste. Life lessoned learned i guess you could say.

good luck then. I don't think you'll last very long. If you just stop doing all of those things, what are you going to do? You are going to sit at home with nothing to do. So good luck buddy.

Its not a matter of luck. The last thing i would want from a negative person like you is well wishing.

Thank the Lord my willpower isnt based on what you believe i can and cant do.
