one of mine will probably be Reddit, sooooooo... looks like I'll be seeing you fine Gentlemen in December! Happy Thanksgiving

[–]DarkSayed 26 points27 points  (0 children)

No Reddit, no Twitter.

See you guys in December.

[–]TooMuchToDoo 10 points11 points  (13 children)

Same here. I'll be downloading a couple RP books to stay in the loop.

[–]4TomorrowWeDie 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Couple of my own recommendations (maybe not sexual-strategy RP per se, but definitely self-improvement):

*The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John Bogle. I've read way too many finance and investment books, and the overwhelming majority of them are complete shit. This one however is an incredibly educating and quick read.

*4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss. A book about how to speed up getting the body you want with the fewest amount of steps.

*The Ultramind Solution by Mark Hyman. The title of this book sounds stupid, but the book itself is amazing. It's a health book with the emphasis on mental conditions; however, the majority of Hyman's suggestions not only help/cure people with things like ADHD and depression, but also things like diabetes, obesity, acne, etc.

I own copies of each because they're great for reference purposes, but I've seen them at numerous libraries.

[–]TestosteroneFilled 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Hey I'll give you some suggestions.

The way of the superior man.

no more mr. nice guy

The 48 laws of power.

How to win friends and influence people.

Influence: The psychology of persuasion.

I missed the rational male cuz I couldn't find it as pdf and can't buy it atm :(

[–]lift_the_heavy_thing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Huge nod to Influence: the power of persuasion. Absolutely fantastic book.

[–]Thzae 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It feels so good to get away from reddit for a while. The first few days or so may be tough if you're used to checking it daily, but after that you feel so much better and realize how silly it is to invest a significant amount of your day reading low effort comments from strangers on topics that have no effect on your life.

It also made me appreciate books more.

Can't have a self improvement month without mentioning monk mode.

[–]LordhavePercy11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I find myself "recycling" as needed into monk mode. It's been more streamlined and effective every single time. One of my personal favorites that you've written.

      On the flipside, one could argue conservatives too easily equivocate wealth with diligence.

      As if a lottery winner is somehow a more moral person.

      [–]1sailorJery 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      I agree. Like I said I'm a liberal. But I'm also a free thinker.

      [–]InferiousX 4 points5 points  (2 children)

      One year for New Years, I gave up booze, animal products and caffeine for a month.

      The caffeine part was the only part I couldn't hack. It was too much. I gave up by week 2

      [–]RU_Crazy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Dropping coffee changed my life. I have more energy and sleep about two hours less per night, so little sleep in fact I haven't set an alarm in months. The first three weeks or so are a total bitch but once you turn that corner...holy fuck. FWIW I still drink earl gray tea and that does not seem to have the negative effects coffee brought me.

      [–]ibuprofiend 4 points5 points  (22 children)

      Coincidentally, I've been doing nofap, no caffeine, and no soda for the last couple weeks, and the latter two have been way harder to stay away from. It's extraordinary that mountain dew is addictive enough to overpower one's reproductive impulse.

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 11 points12 points  (10 children)

      with no soda - it might not be the caffeine you're missing - it might also be the feel of fizzy drinks. Have you tried sparkling water mixed with some lemon or lime juice as a sub? Just throwing it out there

      [–]ibuprofiend 8 points9 points  (9 children)

      No I haven't had anything carbonated so I might have to try that.

      [–]georgespelvin1 6 points7 points  (8 children)

      I drink half liters of soda water mixed with a few tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice throughout the day. Refreshing, no sugar, and good for the prostate. Worth a try.

      [–]2 Mredpillschool 9 points10 points  (5 children)

      Cranberry has sugar. All fruit has sugar.

      [–]CSMastermind 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      Giving up soda is one of the best decisions you can make for your life. As someone who was a Mountain Dew addict for years, you'll feel so much healthier and happier when you give it up.

      [–]GhostOfAladdin 4 points5 points  (7 children)

      It is the sugar that is getting you, man. Takes a few days of no sugar to kick the sugar addiction.

      [–]ShekelBanker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I get the impression caffeine and the feel to drink something carbonated are the main issues. I myself have tricked myself into substituting MD/Pepsi with carbonated mineral water and it worked.

      [–]ALargeBicep 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This was my exact list to give up actually.

      I'm excluding pre workout however. Chemical free feels nice, so I've heard.

      [–]2 Mredpillschool[M] 16 points17 points  (3 children)

      After the end of november, We will post another thread with people's final progress, and voting will begin.

      If you need a place to track your progress, and you don't have a blog, consider:

      • Twitter, use hashtag #nonothingnovember
      • Use this subreddit to post your progress: /r/nonothingnovember

      /u/kidstrangelove, please put this in your post!

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      done.

      The subreddit is a brilliant idea, great call

      [–]the_Milkweed 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      What if both twitter and reddit are considered a vice? Back to writing in my journal....

      [–]BlueChilli 15 points16 points  (4 children)

      No mindless scrolling. (Most all of Reddit). Seriously, I had noticed this just the other day. I was on page 73. It's the worst because it's not even entertaining and when I'm done, I don't even really remember anything. I downloaded a page blocker and only pop in for a few minutes.

      Three sets of pushups to failure every day. This is not a strength exercise, it's a willpower exercise.

      [–]themutato 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Add in some pistols and chin ups as well. Then you will get your strength and willpower gains in.

      [–]Snivellious 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I'm might borrow the pushups one. I hate pushups, so they're probably the best willpower exercise I can think of.

      [–]Gmun23 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      No Masturbation

      I lot of people here are planing to stop masturbating! Yes, I'm really glad to hear this as I'm a long term nofapper and It has really helped me change my life. Please visit /r/NoFap when urges come up and start a counter (how many days of nofap) to help you stay motivated. I found it's one of the greatest tools to keep a clear and focused mind. The extra testosterone will keep you vigilant. If your having sex I would recommend reading up on tantra sex and give it a shot, its a great way to retain energy.

      No TV / Social Media or Games

      These don't add value to our life, It's virtual entertainment without lasting benefits. I recommend quitting all social media like facebook,reddit,tv,9gag, etc, as if you only quit one or two, you will find your self spending more time on the others. Use reddit and other social media smart; like checking for what you need (self improvement), and not want (entertainment).

      • I have quit Marijuana & Caffeine; as they don't add anything to my life and make my mind more clouded and depended; relaxing or energetic. My mentality going forward was: "Why should I depend on anything that give me energy? Because when I don't take it, I will feel weak!"

      I find out that these tasks are much more better to do with your time:

      • Read a book; do writing
      • Play guitar; write a song
      • Go for a swim; jacuzzi
      • Research; Discuss.
      • Photography; do drawing
      • Go for a walk; people watch

      Self-Improvement is a big part of our life, we need to do new things and get more efficient at old tasks:

      [–]hur1n 11 points12 points  (7 children)

      again, the risk here is getting doxxed. do yourselves a favor and make throwaway twitters if you plan on using this hashtag. sad fact is that hashtag movements are a great way to get publicity and visibility for the manosphere out into the general public via your friends list, but using a throwaway completely nullifies this potential.

      [–]Kaquin 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      Goals:

      No Masturbation.

      No consumption of video game related content.

      No Reddit, 4chan, youtube, or any other time wasting sites.

      I've recently quit gaming, something that's been holding me back for years, and I feel confident that I can rid myself of the baggage that came along with it.

      [–]skeetch_a_leak 10 points11 points  (2 children)

      This is cool. My first thought is that, you know, #Lent beat you out by a minute or two to the idea. But, then again, most people halfheartedly give up shit they don't actually care about, then brag on themselves for 6 weeks because they stopped going to Starbucks. Plus, I have a feeling there'll be more real community support for anyone taking this on, since the goal here is to be extraordinary, rather than simply avoiding the appearance of laziness and doing as little as possible.

      I'll have to think on what's still holding me back.

      [–]draquish 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Post for #NoNothingNovember

      Blog: N/A

      Goals:

      • Nofap
      • No media consumption in the mornings
      • No Procrastination

      [–]demoneyes905 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      This pretty much sounds like monk mode to me. I already do this. I cut all social networking to 1 hour/month, TV and reddit to 1 hour per day, no games, no other useless unproductive drivel, 2 hours of reading and everything else for my overarching goals which I tweak every few weeks to keep myself on track.

      Once you do monk mode for a while, it becomes your modus operandi

      [–]1NV0K3R 4 points5 points  (3 children)

      Goals: Nofap, CARDIO(gotta lose 20 pounds), consistent lifting, and fuck it here's a fourth NEW JOB. I'm seriously getting underpaid and live in a shit town. Time to change all that.

      Not really in vice form but whatever.

      [–]orvken1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      I think you should put emphasize on lifting than cardio.

      [–]Phaint 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Consider skipping. Often overlooked. I find it more fun than most cardio.

      Entry into #NoNothingNovember

      Blog: http://deepthrill.blogspot.com

      Goals:

      • No oversleeping.
      • No cannabis use.
      • No skipping days for meditation.

      Updates:

      Oversleeping is definitely a big vice for mine and I am fortunate enough for the luxury of it given my career. However, it holds me back, doesn't develop any discipline, and fucks up my sleeping schedule.

      Cannabis is something I use to increase my self-awareness and explore my psyche, but it's a crutch. It's a temporary tool I refuse to be dependent on for self-improvement. Which brings me to...

      Meditation. It results in the permanent lasting changes in my mind which actually led me to even find this site. I do concentration meditation throughout the day and mindful or body scanning meditation at night. No more skipping days.

      A link to all my #NoNothingNovember posts.

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

      Take it from me - since herb was part of my #NoNothingNovember last year - its one of those vices you need to give a big going away party to. Smoke yourself retarded before the 1st - that way you won't notice the first few days, and by that point you'll hopefully dive head first into the good habits you want to replace your bad ones with!

      [–]Endorsed Contributordeepthrill 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Great advice thanks. Hoping to sort of replace the short term effects of weed with the long term effects of meditation. Do you have experience with that?

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      What helped me was Crossfit - helped clear my head, helped me focus, helped me relax.

      A lot of people advocate working out - this just takes it to a level few have experienced

      [–]200mgtestc 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      Goals: Trackable actions

      Stop Wasting Time: Time track using Toggl. I've wanted to implement this for forever after so many books have recommended it. I often wonder what I did with the last hour. As they say: what gets measured gets managed.

      Stop being Disorganized: I'm a huge fan of GTD, and when I do Daily Reviews consistently, my life is so much less stressful. I'm not sitting there thinking about what I'm not doing, and am able focus entirely on what I have decided what's important.

      Stop getting caught up in busy work: I have employees. I have a virtual assistant that I never use. I still get involved in shit I shouldn't, and all of the sudden 2 months have gone by without working on an important project. My goal is to aggressively delegate way more than I feel comfortable with by creating a "To Delegate" checklist in my daily review every day..

      Definitely looking forward to this, as thinking about this stuff (and not implementing it) has been a point of stress as well.

      [–]eych_too_oh 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      NOTE Future updates will not be posted here.

      Find them on my blog, my subreddit post, or my Twitter.

      Blog: https://medium.com/@vicesandvirtues/

      Link to this intro post: https://medium.com/@vicesandvirtues/day-0-1d55dd970a4e

      Vices (things to not do):

      • Stop half-ass working out and staying healthy. I've been inconsistent with my gym routine and diet protocol for the past two years. This stops now.

      • Underachieve and go through days without a to do list or organizational system.

      • Smoke weed. It makes me weak, socially inept, content with laziness, uncompetitive. Pretty much turns me into a beta.

      Virtues (things to do):

      • There are three components to physical fitness. 1) Lift heavy 2) Eat right 3) Sleep. These are all held together by a fourth element: consistency. I must not deviate from my routine. 1) Since I am not a beginner at lifting, I will do an intermediate routine called PHAT (http://www.simplyshredded.com/mega-feature-layne-norton-training-series-full-powerhypertrophy-routine-updated-2011.html). It features a five day split that combines strength training and hypertrophy training. 2) I need to determine my calorie and macronutrient needs, at the minimum. (After I have these down, I can add micronutrients and supplements such as fish oil and creatine, as needed.) I then need to come up with foods that match these requirements and fit with my busy schedule. Due to social reasons and to be realistic, I will allow myself one cheat meal (dinner with friends) per week, no more. 3) Sleep. 9-10 hours. This will be a tough one because it requires everything else in my life to be in check. If I slack off in any part of my life, then I will have to work into the night and lose sleep. Not good. Which brings me to the next virtue...

      • I need an organizational system to stick to and to encourage my productivity. I am looking into the GTD (Getting Things Done) system by David Allen. I'm using this as a quick set up guide: http://hamberg.no/gtd/ . However, I've also acquired the book and will read it by the end of the first week of November (8th).

      • I need to find a way to get my weed stash away from me or make it otherwise inaccessible. I don't want to throw it away since shit's expensive. However, I mainly use a vape, which requires special batteries. I will store the batteries in an inaccessible place and remove my ability to use the vape. However, I need to identify why I need to get high in the first place and replace that act with something else that will fill the "void". I'm banking on working out and staying healthy being enough, but if not, my back up plan is to make more time and plans for friends who aren't stoners.

      There's the general plan. Tomorrow morning, on November 1, I will do the following:

      • Purchase a gym membership
      • Determine my calorie and macronutrient requirements
      • Plan a weekly diet
      • Plan the weekly lifting routine: M T Th F S
      • Take my "before" pictures and gather baseline data (starting weight, size measurements of body parts)
      • Read 1/8 of GTD
      • Set up the GTD system in Evernote and beginning using it for my tasks that day
      • Set up my Google calendar to use it with the GTD system
      • Hide my vape batteries

      LETS DO THIS.

      [–]jujj 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      I'm baffled about how many puts reddit as a vice and want to kick it completely, when it's the thing that put this idea (and the rest of the good reading on this subreddit) into your life. Seems so contradicting, but then again, it's only my subjective view and people may put a lot more time in to this than me.

      [–]Endorsed ContributorWe_Are_Legion 10 points11 points  (2 children)

      If any of you are going to be like those weak attention-seeking pussies on new year's who make a promise and don't keep it past the first few days, don't even bother.

      The reason why doing this over a month, and in a consistent manner, is the format chosen is because that is the approximate time it takes a person to form a solid self-sustaining habit.

      By forcing yourself to commit to long term goals, and restraining yourself from acting foolishly for a fleeting short-term reward, you are contributing to a future ability to do even better. You are literally re-modeling your brain until these better choices and abilities come more naturally to you. Until they make tangibly instinctive.

      Think of your brain as like a muscle and think of this as an exercise as essential as lifting, if not more so.

      You are cultivating here is mastery over self. And as some pretty nifty side-effects, you get 3 or more snazzy new habits.

      So by the nature of this exercise, you start small and work your way up. Make a target for this month that you will keep, something solid and well-defined so you have no room to make excuses. And carry that momentum and increased self-control for bigger and better goals the next month. I swear it won't even feel like a chore anymore by month 2.

      Remember, the first steps will inevitably be the hardest. But once you start making changes, the effects multiply and carry over to other areas. Each step solidifies your resolve until it becomes easier.

      Get to it, gentlemen. Make yourselves proud.

      If you don't mind me asking, what the fuck's wrong with cursing?

      [–]RemySheppard 17 points18 points  (5 children)

      "fuck" tends to lose its shock factor when its the 4th most used word in your vocabulary.

      [–]Tom_The_Human 22 points23 points  (4 children)

      [–]Snivellious 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Probably not the main reason, but a fun fact is that swearing while in pain improves our resilience to pain, but the effect is more pronounced the less often you use the word.

      It's not a reason to quit swearing, but it did make me reconsider my language habits. It turns out that keeping something taboo or tied to strong emotion is actually useful for giving that word new power, so I try not to swear from my whole vocabulary anymore. When I get actually hurt I'm grateful for it.

      No underachieving

      That's a pretty ambiguous goal. It's going to be easy to tell yourself you did a "good enough job," as the month goes on.

      Entry into #NoNothingNovember

      Blog: N/A

      Goals:

      • No excessive media use for a month (Excluding TRP sidebar readings GIVEN that I scheduled it the night before)

      • No Underachieving/Strictly following a flexible daily schedule - dictating what I should be doing at what hour of the day; ensuring productivity.

      • No Masturbation

      Updates:

      Coming November 1st. I'm considering making a blog specifically this challenge.

      Also, this reminds me a lot about the "30 days of discipline" I had once partaken in. Hopefully the vices I kick for 30 days will last for the rest of my life.

      How does that saying go again? "Would you rather suffer the pain of regret, or discipline". I look forward to this.

      [–]thegreatmacdoodle 5 points6 points  (2 children)

      OK. I'm on board.

      Comes at a damn good time as my thesis is due November 31st. This might just save my shit!

      Blog

      I'll just use the new subreddit

      Goals

      • No video games
      • No zero days - so gym or swim or ride everyday, thesis words everyday, 20 minutes to some skills I'm working on (this will replace the excuse of the pc games as a break, I've been using)
      • No fap. Since I haven't been convinced yet about WHY this is a good thing, I guess I'll try it and find out for myself...... But damned if I'm joining THAT subreddit

      Updates - (Rewards?)

      I'm using an index card system, with each card pertaining to each of the three goals. I've marked out 31 boxes to tick off as I get to midnight on each day in November, I'll tick off that day.

      Is anyone else using a reward system to track and motivate progress? I'd like to know how yours work.

      [–]redpilluser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      The index cards are a brilliant idea.

      [–]OwlandtheBull 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Rewards are an awesome idea. Mine are usually mental; I'll give myself a "pat on the back" when I complete a sub-goal, a day for example without booze.

      Then, after a large goal has been completed, I'll reward myself with a couple days off goals. I put the whip away, and anything goes. This is how I replenish the will power system, which has a limited amount of fuel.

      Too many people break their own legs by:

      • Not properly defining their goals so they don't know if they've been successful. He can never be truly satisfied because he doesn't know if he's cheated or not.
      • Not patting themselves on the back when they are successful
      • Sabotaging any forward progress with negative self-talk whenever they fail

      Moral? Find a reward system that works for you, and use it. And when you fail, cos you will, never ever beat yourself up. Say "I'll do better next time", and try again.

      [–]RPLTR 7 points8 points  (5 children)

      I'm already an alcohol-free, caffeine-free vegan and so there's not much I can do in the way of diet which seems to popular right now. But here goes:

      1. No porn - there is a distinct difference between masturbating and porn. For example, my gf is away for the whole week and no man should go that long without a release. The difference is how you go about it. If you just pull up some porn, jerk off over the same shit, then you suffer from all the things that have been discussed at length about masturbation. However if you have a couple of healthy sessions where you think about scenarios involving your gf or other real world people (thinking about having sex with the hot girl at work for the sake of a release is not unfaithful, continually lusting for her is) then after your orgasm your reaction is "Wow that was awesome" not "Clean up the shame and regret". Too many times I let porn get in the way. So no more.

      2. No more moaning about work - this might seem like a strange one but let me explain. Me and my gf get home at roughly the same time everyday. We spend dinner moaning to each other about how shitty our workdays were. I actually like my job, but every company has assholes. So as soon as there's nothing left to moan about it, neither of us feel better, we're miserable and it's a shitty way to start the evening. From now on, only positive discussion and no more bitching about the workplace. It's a battle you'll never win.

      3. Be able to be content whilst still striving for improvement - it's a difficult balance to get right but its something I know I need to change. Ever since I discovered the community I've been thinking I need to earn more money, build muscle and strive for self-improvement in every aspect of life that I can. However this can easily bog you down, why am I still stick thin, why do I still earn peanuts, why isn't it happening for me yet? It's very self destructive to make unrealistic goals and then beat yourself up when they're not achieved, this is essentially what I've been doing since discovering the community and ultimately it's unhealthy. So instead of getting down about why I'm not at a certain level I'm going to try and be more content with the improvements I've already made whilst striving to become better. The moment you compare yourself to somebody else or put your future-self on a pedestal then you've failed. I aim to be happier with my ongoing work towards becoming a better man whilst also never settling. Don't have an end goal, just continuously improve. This is something I've never been able to do.

      Mine will be giving up booze for a month.. Challenge accepted.

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      I'm curious - how old are you? Are you a student or a professional? I find that the hardest parts of giving up booze are the social expectations to drink, I wonder what yours are

      [–]latino666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      28 year old here.

      Quit the whole "socially drinking" scenario can be a pain in the ass indeed. In fact, my drinking has started through social expectations as you mentioned back when I was 19 years old. I ended up liking it (specially beer) and now I usually drink by myself(I actually prefer drinking alone).

      So what I'll do when I'm at a social meeting and people are drinking is just having one beer, drink it slowly so people don't think I'm not polite or anything. And that's because I like beer, but when I'm at a birthday party at work and everyone is having cake or something, I'll gladly say no, because I don't like it and I have set myself a limit on how much I'll give in in situations like that.

      If you like something, it's usually good to give in a little bit in a social environment but you should also learn how to say no if you really don't like something. Should be a given, but a lot of people have problems with that.

      [–]Distake 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Vices to drop:

      • Fapping
      • Sugar and sweets (excluding fruit)
      • Mindless time wasting on the web and reddit
      • TV and TV series
      • giving a fuck xD

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      just remember that you can't be "on" all the time - your mind and body need to rest. Fapping and TV were your chillout activities. Have some more chillout activities planned.

      Start with a good book. I just finished Wheelmen - and investigative reporter look at Lance Armstrong and the crazy doping program his team was running

      [–]musicvita25 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Think I'm gna give up smoking shisha.

      I'm training harder then ever and as much as I love it. It fucking slows me down.

      Yeah shisha for a month. Fuck it.

      [–]MarvelousWhale 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      What if one of my crutches is working out/lifting because I love the burn and results?

      I don't have any crutches except sleeping too much and it's fucking hard to stop it, especially since I got a brand new mattress!

      [–]vintagegirlgame 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      This is a great idea, I want to ask the RPW mods if we can make a similar post and support each other in kicking vices like good RP men and women ;)

      For NoNothingNovember I'll be giving up: A) Sleeping in B) Being lazy about my morning routine (keeping up on daily squats, yoga and meditation) C) Interrupting (special request by my SO)

      [–]pheonixignition 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      1. No alcohol
      2. No timewasters (reddit, videogames,etc)
      3. No masturbation.

      ...See ya guys in December hopefully....

      [–]Adrian_mx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Although Im 20 years old, ill be letting go of masturbation, alchohol/partying with friends, no junk food i.e desserts, fast food etc. and no more procrastination, if I want something done, ill get it done without hesitation.

      Ill be setting up a blog, will post here for the public.

      NoNothingNovember. It will determine what kind of men we are. Men who overcome whatever is put in front of us.

      Goodluck Gents!

      Edit: im also going to stop looking at women, i keep looking ass and boobs all the time with a distraction.

      [–]tenthirtyone1031 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I acknowledge that if I were to give up my top three crutches that I would likely lose some friends and end up in jail.

      Definitely something I'm going to try/change. I need more lead/prep time than a couple days. I'll catch up a week in or sooner.

      [–]el_Technico 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      The red pill gives back to society by fostering the development of a generation of male bad ass. Way to go guys !

      [–]DTDtwopoint0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Definitely my iPad/laptop. It's like the fuel to all my addictions. Porn, social media stalking, procrastination.. Don't feel like studying? Go torrent a movie or get lost on reddit or YouTube. Feeling lonely? Go stalk your ex on Facebook and IG or watch hours of porn. (Though I must say, I've made good progress on nofap. Tranny porn doesn't make my dick twitch anymore, and cuckold porn only interests me about an hour into my porn session) .. So yeah. Cold turkey on the social media. I'll supplement them with meditation in the morning. Maybe my lifts will improve too.

      [–]nduece 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      I'll give this a go. I'll be giving up

      -fapping -meat -bread

      [–]hohamocha 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      *No Beer

      *No Masturbating

      Full post on the topic here: http://masculineprofiles.com/no-nothing-november/

      Best of luck to you all!

      [–]TakeYourSoma1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Goal: feel better about myself.

      >No drunkenness. I like good beer and drink, so I won't cut it off completely, but fuck me. I just can't drink alcohol like I did in college. I had a few strong drinks and shots last night, woke up with a mild headache today. Already wasted some time this morning just laying around in bed. I'm getting tired of what drunkenness leads to the next day.

      >No sloth. I'm already doing Stronglifts at the crack o' dawn three times a week. I want to incorporate more activity into my life. Today I'm going to go walk around in nature. This will be hard during Thanksgiving week when I visit family, but I reckon I can at least go for a brisk walk / jog around Central Park. Should be lovely this time of year.

      >Mindless consumption. Been watching a lot of The Walking Dead recently. Great show. But I have been putting off finishing a book. I want to at least finish that book and start another. Maybe even finish the second one!

      [–]Gnoppong 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      This is a really great idea guys. Finally we will see what we are truly made of and show those fucking distractions in our life who is the fucking boss. I'm jumping on this right now, no more wasting my valuable time watching porn. I'm using this extra time and energy to develop something within myself. Good luck brothers. I'll see you on the other side.

      [–]adamhello 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      Wish me luck!

      • Masturbating
      • Reddit
      • Swearing
      • Slouching
      • Biting Nails

      [–]ImNorwegian 5 points6 points  (4 children)

      Okay, inspired by some of you guys:

      Vices to drop:

      • Use of websites that only take away my time. These include
        • 4chan
        • 8chan
        • reddit (obviously)
        • youtube (Added after 1 day)
      • Drinking Coca Cola
      • Eating any meals served at campus (due to price and quality)
      • My guitars. I will not have any need of them before my exams are over.
      • I'll go with masturbation as well. Now it's written down.

      That's about it I figure. I might add a fiew things as I see the need.


      November 1st:

      Pretty stoked to start this thing. I have started a few days ahead, pretty much right after I saw this post. Funnily enough I think the websites are going to be the hardest to get by without. I notice how ingrained reddit has gotten, as I type in the website pretty much on instinct now when I am not entertained by something else. I'm looking forward to the point when I have gotten off that habit.

      Other websites have taken its place though, like youtube and others, and so I think I should add those to the list as I see them becoming a problem. I think my overarching goal in this regard should be wasting less time on the 'net in general.

      I am not really as bothered by the abstinence from masturbation as I thought I would be, but that should get worse one of these days.

      My guitars were the first thing I failed at, but only because I didn't think about it. I sat down and just picked one up out of instinct. I'll pack them away in their respective bags to prevent that from happening again.


      December 5th:

      I am sad to say I lost interest in this project fairly quickly, and pretty much ended up failing all of the points above at some point, except a few. Eventually I stopped thinking about it, and would find myself drinking a bottle of coke, or jerking off aimlessly, or playing guitar, without actually having told myself that I didn't care that I failed.

      I regret that I made such a big list of things, and didn't just stick with one or two. I have a tendency to think in terms like "all or nothing" or "if you're gonna do it, do it right" and so on. And I usually fail. Maybe it would have been easier to concentrate on just reddit and coke. I know what I'll have to work on now at least.

      [–]themutato 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      Don't give up guitar for a month! Just start up a dedicated hour every day or two that you confine your playing to. Art is good for the soul brother (and I bet you'll be less stressed about exams).

      [–]ImNorwegian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I can never control myself around my guitars, so I think it is for the best. On the flip side, I always thoroughly enjoy getting back to them after a time of celibacy, so now Christmas should be magical in all sorts of ways.

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      wow, thats a big undertaking - good luck. It gets a LOT easier if you find a good behavior to replace a bad one - a good book, a workout, and some much needed relaxation or wind down time.

      The chans and reddit are very "twitch" behaviors, may I suggest deleting the related apps from your phone?

      [–]ImNorwegian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Thanks, I hope I haven't been too ambitious! I tend to do that.

      "Twitch" is a very good word for it, at least how I relate to the websites. Even the thought of an empty browser makes words like "reddit" spring to mind, and typing out the word is almost a reflex, so it is past time I got away for a bit.

      [–]GoldmundUnleashed 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      I'm down with this.

      Anything that will help me become stronger, accomplish goals, and motivate others is okay in my book.

      My blog: http://goldmundunleashed.com/

      The vices to drop:

      -No hangovers (fuck, they kill me and I get nothing done) -No wasted time (I'm working on another book and it needs to be completed in November, no fucking dicking about) -No skipping the gym (4 days a week, no excuses) -Saving money (eat at home, bring a flask out, no frivolities) -Posting 3 times a week

      I plan on dropping at least 3 posts on this during the month. Will tie it in to everything else: game, energy levels, motivation, mindset...it will be very interesting to see what happens.

      Good luck fellas, and thanks for the inspiration Strangelove.

      [–]KidStrangelove[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      let me know if and when you wanna go out on the cheap:)

      [–]M_rafay 3 points4 points  (2 children)

      Goals:

      • Meditation. I can't hold my focus for any length of time at present. Whenever I focus on breath I just immediately begin to control it. And I get anxious from staying still so I stop. I'm going to get back into it and maintain it for upto 30 minutes.

      • This one's a bit ambitious but I'm going to stop letting that stop from trying. I'm going to work at leaving my current job and landing one in a field I've been hoping to get into for a while now(job titles redacted on second thought). I'm going to spam my CV, go meet people, call favours, whatever it takes until I've got my foot in the door and a confirmed gig. One month deadline.

      • Gym. No more screwups. 4 times a week.

      • Approach more women. Get better at it. Sleep with at least 4. One per week. (Oh god).

      • no getting sucked into mindless scrolling on reddit frontpage. that stuff is useless and a time drain.

      • Proper sleep schedule.

      [–]GhostOfAladdin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Goals:

      1. No Masturbation.

      2. No Media consumption that doesn’t have intellectual content (ie reddit)

      3. No spending money on premade food and drink (Starbucks and sandwich shops)

      Updates: I made a simple first post on the blog basically saying the same thing I said here. Starting Nov 1 I will be updating once a day.

      If you run firefox, try the Leechblock addon, which lets you self-block websites of your choice. I've blocked imgur, funnyjunk, and all of my favorite porn sites about 4 months ago, and that's all it took to quit wasting my time there.

      [–]TRPatriot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I highly recommend reading/listening to The Power of Habit, it offers excellent insight and support for understanding and changing our habits.

      I'm really considering this, I'm actually getting excited.

      [–]c_pred 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Interesting challenge, Kid. A good way to test our discipline with things we know are bad or holding us back but still do anyways because of a bit of enjoyment we get out of it. Instead of the subtraction theory of only removing things from our lives, maybe try the replacement theory with giving up something negative with a possible positive thing. For example, many people including myself, when quitting tobacco started eating more and gaining weight not realizing that one habit took the place of another. Just something to think about in the next month.

      [–]animalpoo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      1. No "zero days" on my goals
      2. No caffeine or drinks besides water
      3. No pornography
      4. No reddit

      This challenge works out perfectly because at the beginning of December I will be initiated into my fraternity. I will be extending the challenge until my day of initiation. Really excited to get started.

      [–]dudesyouknowme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      For me it's alcohol and reddit. i don't really have a fapping problem anymore but I want to keep going so I will add that in.

      However this only goes until thanksgiving for me. I am going to Medellin for thanksgiving and I assure you I will be drinking.

      [–]agilecaveman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Things to give up:

      [–]2 Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      If I had any vices I would get rid of them, barely drink so it's easy to go six months without it. Eat healthy all the time, mainly cook for myself. Don't drink sugary shit. Working on building my home by hand so the gym is redundant. No TV or video games out here in the woods, and my Internet usage is quite low.

      Perhaps I will do something in November rather than not do something, like curtail the monk mode I've been in for months and go fuck some skinny chicks.

      1. No skipping work outs, 4 times a week, no excuses.
      2. Spend 3 hours a week on my side business. I spend about an hour to 2 hours every week on it and it is profitable, but it takes me forever to complete simple tasks "on the business" and improving it.
      3. No porn.
      4. Flirt with girls in public instead of making excuses. This is one of my worst vices and I am sick of it.

      [–]hbPUA 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      1. To be at peace with myself, while making improvements and remembering past achievements. Be proud of the amazing things I've achieved and work even harder every day to make myself even better.

      2. Continue to stay away from porn while doing nofap.

      3. Create additional income and become my own boss.

      [–]BluepillProfessor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Giving up pot, fap and media consumption is rich for my blood and I am taking it off the table right now. I could give up Reddit but I don't think it is a "vice."

      I gave up drinking already for those damn liver enzyme tests and gave up gaming for writing, research and classroom prep. I gave up sitting on my ass for the gym last year and gave up being a Beta bitch pussy ass candy striped mother fucker at the same time.

      I have thought for so long about affirmative acts I need to take and things I need to DO. This has me thinking really hard about things I need to stop doing. Mind blown. All that improvement and work but I have not thought about my vices in a long time.

      I suppose my biggest remaining vice is my tendency to stay up rather late... so for November I will commit to not stay up past my bedtime. This is actually going to be rather difficult.

      [–]AlphaAsFAQ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Not going to be easy but I'm going to go without:

      • reddit, the only thing I'll really miss is asktrp and the guys I've started mentoring from there
      • Facebook
      • PlayStation

      See you guys in a month!

      • plan everyday day the night before
      • lift 4 days a week
      • no FB, reddit

      Still trying to decide what to do with POF and tinder. I waste a good amount of time on them but I also get laid and work on game through these apps. Any advice?

      [–]Sigurd228 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      3 major vices to remove:

      ~ Reduce social media and web browsing to reading TRP feed and responding to FB messages - max 30 minutes a day combined. This also means I'm saying goodbye to reddit for a month.

      ~ No more days without any exercise, even if it's only a longer walk.

      ~ Stop going to sleep unprepared for the following day, which directly translates into easier time getting up and having a productive morning.

      Gonna use Toogl for a better time tracking.

      Maintain : -Daily meditation -nofap/PMO -cold showers -training twice a day (2 hours +) football goal, skill training -HIIT gym 3 times a week. Change : -Only do productive tasks, if mindlessly browsing, immediately stop, and do something productive. -Cut out refined sugar, empty carbohydrates from diet ~ ie, any breakfast cereal, any snack in a package ect..

      My goals are:

      ·No caffeine

      ·No Fap

      ·No wasting time (Reddit, 4chan)

      Every day I will:

      Go to the gym. No excuses.

      Meditate for 20 min.

      Approach.

      I guess fapping, non-educational TV (I take several video courses from The Great Courses), over-sleeping, and non-business internet.

      [–]Doctor_Mayhem 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      I guess I'll have to give up more than three.

      Fapping, soda (I heart carbonation, so I'm keeping diet soda, since bodybuilders recommend it as a way to make you not want to eat carbs), wheat and dairy (I shouldn't eat that shit, anyways), oversleeping, and wasting time on the internet/video games.

      Dropped out of the dating market, so got no one to impress, gonna hit the gym and martial arts when my injuries heal up. Gonna need a plan...

      Keeping morning energy drink, though.

      No porn, fapping or 4chan. Sounds easy now, but we'll see how far it goes.

      [–]TheAssh0le 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      • Fapping and porn.
      • Non-occasional booze; "Card game night with the chums." is an occasion, "It's the weekend and/or I'm bored." is not.
      • Video Games. All of them, Xbox and phone games.
      • Fiction/entertainment novels until I finish the suggested reading.

      Phew, that's basically all of my free time. Good thing I already have my reading list prepared. I'm on my fourth reading of "No More Mr. Nice Guy", I've got 33 Strategies of War, Mastery, Art of Seduction, and 48 Laws of Power left to read. I'm probably going to knock those out before December as well. Anyone wanna hit me with more to read?

      Posting here to officialize my participation, although I did a post on my goals a couple of days ago:

      http://www.youngmanredpill.com/2014/10/29/nonothingnovember-my-goals/

      In general:

      1)Maximize money made/saved. I work in sales. I'd like to make $4,500 this month.

      2) No wasting time and thusly, finish my pilot.

      3) No whack.

      3b) No drinking until my birthday in late November.

      Good luck getting your pilots license!

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      • Being mindful at all times (i.e. stop over analysing everything that I do).

      • Stop going on Reddit the moment I wake up.

      • Stop procrastinating and finish reading No More Mr Nice Guy.

      [–]FallenHighSchoolJock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Ok I'm 22 and have no social life. Let's do this:

      1) No more alcohol outside of social settings. This might sound like a cop out, but I'm not an alcoholic, I don't let it get in the way of responsibilities and I don't get extremely drunk. Alcohol is just another time waster because I have nothing to do on the weekends and it makes me feel OK with being bored. Only time I'm drinking is in a bar with somebody else.

      2) No more Reddit or time wasting websites. I will check the front page once a day for news and check in to other peoples blogs for a few minutes. That is it. This means no more trolling, or mindless front page surfing. No more posting shit like this

      3) I'm going to talk to three new guys every day and approach at least one girl everyday.

      4) No masturbation.

      Anybody have any tips for a guy looking to meet more people? I am in my last year of college and haven't found clubs, teams or classes to be a good way to meet people. I already work out a lot but that's the only thing I'm really proud of. I might add video games to this but I only play on the weekends really.

      /r/stopdrinking

      I'm already 23 days deep and am trying to get off the anti histamines to sleep (already dumped melatonin).

      [–]let_terror_reign 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      OK. Trying again. Nofap, no internet videos of games, get research on track, no poor work on homework, as little gaming as possible.

      [–]semondemon24 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Vice 1: No ejaculation (I can still orgasm)

      Vice 2: Wake up early every sunday through friday

      Vice 3: No sugar, no bread

      #NoNothingNovember

      Until December 3rd I am giving up:

      -Alcohol

      -Masturbation/Porn

      -Reddit/Social Media in excess of 30min/day.

      Already gave away the beers in the fridge, deleted all porn on my PC/phone, unsubscribed from all NSFW subs, and installed a Chrome extension to time and then block reddit/FB/twitter/imgur.

      Also started on a big clean bulk, but that was already planned (185lb to 210lb). Should be an interesting month!

      DAY 4: Never really quantified how much time I was wasting on reddit/fb- probably around 3-4 hours every afternoon, plus maybe 2 hours at work. To fill up this newfound free time yesterday I made a workout tracker http://imgur.com/Ix37eqW ,started reading "Jupiter's Travels" by Ted Simon, and cooked/portioned out 2 days worth of food. Diet is going well, I'm obsessively tracking calories and macros on the MyFitnessPal app. Had to write a 'creative' essay for a lib-ed class, would usually have had a beer or two to get the words flowing (I'm an engineer, I hate that type of assignment).

      [–]cbruins22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Goals: Nofap, earlier to bed/ to wake up, less nicotine/videogames/internet, healthier food, more exercise

      [–]Deoxidizer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      You stopped smoking weed for a month so you could do crossfit? Kill yourself please

      EDIT: I respect that you stopped smoking weed by the way, but seriously, crossfit? Just no

      [–]t21spectre 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I really like this, #NoNothingNovember, my goal Starting next week will also include "Monk Mode."

      Landing a much better job (already looking with positive prospects)

      Quitting smoking

      No drinking

      Starting my lifting routine again after 4 years (routine and progress charts almost done)

      Focusing on kicking the shit out of my classes

      No lame Facebook or time wasting websites

      No gaming in free time, or at all, books and life enriching things only

      No pussy (similar to the "be happy with yourself first" before you can be with anyone else philosophy, if you don't "need pussy" it will never be on a pedestal in your life, helps maintain frame, haven't pedestaled for years though)

      Going HARD MODE with this, proving my self-discipline and ability to dedicate myself to something to myself.
