New Years resolutions are often lame because they fall apart so fast, I hated being at the gym and it was flooded with new people, by about march it was back to being empty and no one hanging out in the free weight zone. But, for those who are committed, it can be a nice thing to be like ‘this year is going to be different’.
For me, I am going to be much more abstinent. This is my major goal for the year as well as reduce non-productive internet use. The first one though is something many guys really need to do, but often live in denial. Porn, hookups, ONS, FWB etc are all really destructive to guys, its something that makes us think we are ‘winning’ when in fact we are not.
I have had my share from my pua days, and it was useful at the time to see ‘it could be done’ but all it really did was make me loosely addicted to it, as well as see how absolutely deprave women are. I have had a bunch of ‘highlights’ ranging from a nurse I was banging and finding out she was married, to a few various girls that really loved be choked/slapped/tied down, for a man trying to do ANYTHING in this life, that depravity starts to rub off and its good.
I am taking an abstinence break for a while as it helps me think clearer. My words flow easier, I can recall the right word, and my endurance is higher. My strength does not change, so I won’t bullshit you on that kind of stuff, some of my best gym PRs were when I was addicted to porn, but running is absolutely destroyed and it ‘drains’ the body of some sort of vital energy, this is esoteric but has been very true for me.
Anyway heres to a good year, and if you are engaging in any positive changes lets hear about them.
