#NoNothingNovember 2015 Challenge

Reddit View
October 28, 2015

Last year for the month of November, we challenged men to give up three vices for a month. They say that it takes just 21 days to form (or lose) a habit, and from those who participated last year, you'll remember that there's great satisfaction from achieving self-set goals, so let's get started on our 2015 #N3!

The Challenge

No Nothing November concentrated on giving up vices last year, but this year we're going to upgrade just a little bit. Let's take a look at the phrase No Nothing November- It's more than just giving up some vices.. in fact, that should be called Nothing November. But we're here to say no to nothing. So this year the challenge is:

  • Give up Three Vices for a month.
  • Take up One Daily activity for a month.

As we did last year, we want you to choose three vices you want to ditch for the month (and maybe for longer!) Some chose porn, some chose alcohol, and some chose /r/theredpill (bastards). Pick three vices or distractions that you want to remove from your life and kick them to the curb. If you pick alcohol or cigarettes, get them out of your house. If you pick porn, install that parental control software. If you picked /r/theredpill, close this window now.

Now for the new part of N3, making sure that no day is wasted, we say no to nothing. Pick an activity or chore that you want to make sure gets done daily. It can be big, or it can be small. Clean your apartment, make your bed, hit the gym (best option), approach at least 3 women a day, shave, work on your hobby project at least an hour a day. Whatever it is, it's time to pick it and make a real schedule to include it in your day.

Sit down with your calendar and figure out what time of the day you'll need to dedicate to your NoNothingSomething. Figure out Thanksgiving. If you are ditching alcohol or taking up the gym, there's no excuse for Thanksgiving. You must commit.

Track your progress

  • Track on your personal blog, or
  • Twitter, use hashtag #nonothingnovember or
  • Use this subreddit to post your progress: /r/nonothingnovember

Start tracking your progress by announcing your goals. If you make a new post in /r/nonothingnovember you can use that thread to post updates as you go. If you use twitter, sticky your goals at the top of your page. Discuss how you plan to achieve these goals and what steps you're going to take to ensure that they happen.


Last year we made it a contest, but the format of this challenge doesn't really lend itself to contest modes, so this year we're doing it a little different.

Every day that you update your progress, update how many days you have completed the challenge. Yes, this requires the honor system. If you're using /r/nonothingnovember, you can edit your user flair on the top right corner of the subreddit by clicking "edit", selecting the first flair option [Days], and edit it to the number of days you've been successful.

At the end of the month, people who have the number 30+ in their flair and enough logs in their thread (or blog or twitter) to reasonably corroborate it will get a special 2015 #N3 badge next to their name in TRP.

If you cheat, then that badge will serve as a daily reminder that you did not complete the challenge, and that you dishonor those who have the badge by being a fraud.

We start November 1st So get your last drink, smoke, wank out of the way and get ready for

I am beaming with pride right now. Thank you for /u/redpillschool for picking up the ball after I semi disappeared, and giving many men an outlet for their self improvement. You are the man

First - a little bit of background.

I started my first #NoNothingNovember 2 years ago. I jacked off too much, smoked too much weed and consumed too much media.

I was dying a slow death.

After a very trying month, I learned a lot about myself - my strengths, my weaknesses, how my mind works - I grew to become a better person all around.

Last year #NoNothingNovember, thanks to this amazing community, grew larger. People from all walks of life were taking their discipline into their own hands.

For me personally, it was up to that point, the most life changing moment of my life. I got a new job at a tech startup, vastly increasing my earnings, while consulting on the side. My fitness level skyrocketed thanks to my dedication, and a brand spanking new state of the art Crossfit gym I was able to easily afford thanks to my new-found earning potential.

I disappeared. I had a lot of new experiences to process, a new life to live. Little did I know life had other plans.

In February, I was diagnosed with Cancer.

I can tell you a lot of stories from this year, from the pain I faced, to the friends I made, to the eventual euphoria when the doctor, after looking at the type of scan that was designed to spot needles in haystacks, told me that I am cancer free. But those stories are for another time, and right here, right now, I am here to talk about discipline and perseverance.

I was absolutely terrified of the diagnoses, but I knew right away that I was going to beat it because I had no other choice. Live, or die. I chose life.

One of the drugs in my chemo cocktail does a number on your lungs, so smoking was immediately out of the question. People struggle for years to quit smoking. I did to. I always relapsed. But I quit cold turkey that day because the alternative was that if my lungs were in REALLY bad shape, they would take me off this life saving drug. Life was more important. Living was more important.

I cut out drinking completely. I cut out bad food completely. I was entirely dedicated to getting better, and it was the easiest decision I ever made. Because the alternative is death.

So here is my advice to you - choose life! Don't look at this challenge as a challenge, look at it as the easiest thing in the world - because it is. Especially when you consider the alternative - death. You are the only thing standing in the way of your perfect life.

I chose life. I beat death. Now I want you all to do the same Go out there and kick ass this November!!!

Wow, inspiring story man. Thanks for for sharing!

[–]bobjoe1773 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

way to go bro i had the same thing in 2010/11. Don't let any health problems become your identity, you're more than that. Was the one that fucked your lungs bleomycin? I had that and cisplatin. In the last couple of years I've taken up long distance running, I can run til my knees give out now, the lungs are a non issue long as I'm not inhaling anything pressurized

[–]AnAbsoluteSith2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Is the particular med affecting your lungs platinum based? Had a similar experience: a few times during chemotherapy we had to stop altogether because my lungs would start giving out. I'm glad to hear you're finally free though. Here's hoping we don't have to face that adversary ever again.

[–]WeRAllOne1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

As someone who is beginning to leave all of my vices behind, thank you for this. If it was your intention to get others motivated, you have done it.

[–]TRP_Werther0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Extremely well put, when I was a teenager ill health and coming to grips with the death of my father really knocked me down, so much so I spent an entire summer in bed, waiting for everything to end.

I don't know why but one day I woke up and vowed to choose life over death, after that day I never looked back.

You're a living a living testament to life overpowering death

[–]paradwarf0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Hey man thanks for sharing this post. I really enjoy reading stories like this.

great story bro, thanks for your testimony

[–]dogextraordinaire34 points35 points  (6 children) | Copy

I'll kick this off then. For this month I give up porn, pot and purchasing (needless shit).

I'll update here because I don't have a blog and don't use much twitter.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 19 points20 points  (2 children) | Copy

What's your daily activity you're committing to?

[–]dogextraordinaire1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think it will be interesting to post a semi-ambitious goal everyday. E.g. start a blog one day, do 100 pages of a book, apply for x amount of jobs, etc.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (2 children) | Copy

I did this for lent. Gave up all tobacco, porn (still jerked off. Interesting effect on my imagination), and pizza/pizza affiliates.

Half the joy was creating a challenge and completing it. I actually kept it up awhile after. Those vices were less exciting after. I felt cleaner. Stronger.

[–]dogextraordinaire2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'm glad to hear that worked for you bro. For me, pot dulls my overall cognizance, porn stops me from giving a shit about approaching women (why bother with their shit when I'm so busy with all my own shit and can always bust a nut anyway) and purchasing all sorts of luxurious items I don't really need is keeping me poor.

So a change is definitely needed and this is the perfect excuse to give it a shot.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If it doesn't work you can always go back.

[–]acartoontiger32 points33 points  (7 children) | Copy

I'm in. I give up alcohol, porn, and food from restaurants/businesses. Proactive activity is 30mins daily studying for my medical board exam that is nov 30th.

Good luck everyone

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good luck on your exam. Let's fucking do this

[–]Kidterrific6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

I can honestly say that some of the best times of my life were when I was studying for my boards. I am a diamond under pressure. I would go into lockdown mode and was disciplined in every area - diet, time, study, play. I always lost weight and partied hard when I allowed myself to. Nobody fucked with me because I never allowed them to. It is the time that comes to my mind whenever I read a post that starts with: "Used to be alpha."

But a few years of practice brings a different pressure that, while real and justifiable, doesn't put the "I must do this or there is no plan whatsoever. Failure is no option." - fear into me that snapped me into a warrior for a few months.

I've been looking forward to studying for my recert boards in the next year for this reason, but this post and challenge made me realize that I can, and quite honestly SHOULD, live with that intensity right now, and all the damn time - forever. You've inspired me. I'm in.

No porn.

No escapism (phones, Internet)

No tobacco products.

Will actively devote time to address all calls, paperwork, and billing daily. I've never been able to do this, probably because of porn, escapism, and tobacco.

I have zero days off in November.

Downtime to be spent completing the sidebar.

Good luck, man. Boards suck, but you will crush them.

Holy fuck, I'm about to hit submit....

[–]acartoontiger2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Good luck to you. Right now is a pretty crucial point in my life, and I already have the minimal alcohol and the 5x/wk workouts, the last things to cut were porn, the last of the alcohol, and any unhealthy food.

Also, I know 30mins/day is nothing when talking about studying for boards, but I work like 12 hours a day in the hospital which in many ways is more than studying. But I really want to make that promise to myself that every day when I'm home from work I will still hit those notes so I can kill those boards.

Its nice to see another doctor here in red pill. Are you a physician? 6 months from now I will be a veterinarian at 26, its daunting but I am proud to be where I am.

If you are taking a second round of boards you must be in residency for a specialty. Thats hardcore, I wish you the best. Also if you are new I do definitely recommend reading all the sidebar material as you said, there is a lot of gold there.

Kick some ass and let November be your most productive month yet.

[–]Kidterrific1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Physician, here. Good for you on being a vet at 26! It gets amazing - stick with it and get at me for professional advice towards the business end.

I'm taking my 10 year recertification - going to start now.

[–]GoldenCocaine0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Hey hope you did well on that exam. Should be feeling pretty proud right about now (I hope lol)

[–]acartoontiger0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Hey thanks man. It was hard as fuck but yeah I'm proud I got through it. Now just gotta wait for results, the sick bastards dont release scores until January.

Hope your November goals went well.

[–]RevMick50 points51 points  (6 children) | Copy

Dear Vices,

Suck it.

I'm giving up booze, slinging yogurt somewhere other than in/on a bitch and my snooze button.

I'm going to study for the CCNA exam every day.



[–]TRP VanguardCyralea4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I gave up my warm, comfortable Saturday mornings to attend CCNA classes several years ago. My salary has quite literally doubled since then.

Keep at it. The prize at the end is worth it.

[–]DONT_reply_with_THIS2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

CCNA comes after security+ and network+ for me. Stay focused brother!

[–]6482620 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Snooze - I'm stealing that, thanks.

[–]Subbbie0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I had to urban dictionary slinging yogurt. I guess I've just never heard it described that way.

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

No, he actually means throwing yoghurt at people. Whenever somebody talks shit to him or cuts him in traffic he throws a little thing of yoghurt at them.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

slinging yoghurt

Looks like I finally found the asshole who's been leaving little half eaten containers of yoghurt on my front doorstep every morning...

[–]Braaaaaapp15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy


  1. Video Games
  2. Masturbation, already gave up porn a long time ago
  3. Browsing reddit randomly during the day


Doing something OUTSIDE. I find that most of my day revolves around being inside, the gym, studying, cleaning. I'd like to start going fishing more or going on a hike anything outside once a day, being in the sun and outside is proven to have a lot of benefits.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's a great goal. I think i'm going to try and get outside more as well. It's kind of crazy how little I am outside on an average day.

[–]justfaded15 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hi, I plan to give up:

  • Pornography
  • Mindless browsing
  • Foods with high; sugar, oil - content.

I plan to study everyday for atleast an hour for my A Level examinations.

Thank you for this, u/redpillschool. Thanking you from across the world, here in Pakistan.

Just wanted to confirm, if I just post on the subreddit, will I still get my reward (The badge next to my name)?

By the way is there a way I can post links too or is this a special privilege you have... I want to link to my post as well and auto moderator just pruned it

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I approved it.

[–]recon_johnny1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I also tried to post the link to my goals.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (3 children) | Copy

How convenient that November is also national write a novel month, something I've been planning for. My daily activity will be writing - at least eight pages (2000 words) a day.

As for my three vices: based on /u/-r_r-'s excellent comment in this thread, I'll be eliminating all of mine (browsing, media binging, fapping) in one swoop by giving up the internet all together for a month. On Oct. 31st I'm just going to pop the wireless card out of my PC and turn it over to a friend for safe keeping.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Done the novel writing month before. Good luck, don't fall behind it you'll hate your life trying to catch up. 2000 a day is much easier than having to do 3500 per day like I did

[–]1RedPillJax2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

As a guy who's had 4 novels published, let me know if you want any tips or anything along the way!

2000 words is an ambitious goal, but if you pound out 2000 a day for 30 days, you'll have a (short) publishable manuscript at 60,000 words by the end of it all.

Good luck!

[–]Danedina0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It is a lot. I'm also wondering if it would be better to set a time based goal rather than quantitative. Either way, I'm jumping in on this. My goal is more modest: 1 solid hour of writing/rewriting and one 1 hour of guitar. That's about as much as I can cram into an evening after work.

[–]throwaway-aa210 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is interesting. I came here to possibly swear off TRP for a month... but I might just kill my internet. Actually not a bad idea at all.

Edit: I think I'm going to not only kill internet but tuck away my computer completely.

[–]1v1mebruh2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Interestingly enough my computer had an OS issue a week ago that I couldn't fix immediately until about now (almost fixed, I have a short term workaround), and since I've been hitting the gym daily, meditating, and reading a lot, I didn't give a shit. I even didn't bother trying to fix it for like 5 days because I genuinely didn't need or desire it. I had my phone if I really needed the internet, and it also kept me updated on emails and other important stuff.

In the past I would've been depressed and gone into rage mode, but this time around I was like eh, fuck it, and went and read a bunch of books on my reading list. Pretty refreshing.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

What about those of us who run a business, or businesses from home? I'm thinking maybe I could only do work at the office, but my work Is my hobby.

Then again maybe it shouldn't be. I may have answered this for myself... Still looking for tips if anyone has some.

[–]lightfire4090 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

My concern as well. When i get stumped by a compiler error or a design flaw in my code, my first response is to google it. Its pretty vital to my hobbies.

Its a catch 22 because i spend way too much time on the internet, but i need it to be productive. Halp.

[–]evileddy2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Very interesting.. also the cash savings from not paying for internet can add up over the years!

I'd do it but I rely on the internet ( at this point ) to make cash but I would love to try it out... seems like the more people are plugging in the more I want to disconnect.

[–]fingerthemoon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I can't do that because I have unlimited data with Verizon. I was grandfathered in and if I shut it off it's gone forever.

I tether with my laptop and let other people use it. Last month I pulled 150gigs. No throttling. It's awesome.

[–]Endorsed Contributor303030303030300 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Here is the advice: cancel your internet service.

I moved some time ago and I had not had an internet access for over a month.

I was amazed how much time I waste mindlessly browsing, even though I'm actively trying to avoid it. I was bored, I was walking around my room not knowing what to do with myself.

I was cooking, reading, working out, meeting people, visiting my parents more than I did in half a year. I had time for everything. Big eye opener.

Unfortunately, due to my current profession and me trying to change it, I need it to learn after work.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

To everyone considering this but thinking they still need the Internet for some things: perhaps you could add one of those softwares to not only block porn but all other time-wasting sites. This way you could make sure you are only using the Internet for what you say you "need".

[–]Enjoyitbeforeitsover0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I disagree, for some you really do need to be online for school purposes and also for entertainment. For some cutting their internet is an effective means to cut out distractions. Whoever it's all ultimately all in your mind. So if you don't want to be distracted that's where self discipline comes in. It takes time and many failures to get to a point where you can actually get shit done and balance everything and also include any form of entertainment. Meditation is starting to become important to me now.

Jerking off while using your imagination and fantasizing of real women in your life that you plan to bang is a hundred times better than watching porn. If you do want to wank one out every now and then, which can be actually healthy, this is the way to go. Reasons: 1. You don't screw up your expectation regarding how women look and act during sex. 2. Fantasizing of banging said women will increase your motivation to actually do it, and even make it an actual mission. You'll be a horny fucking animal when you'll met her, exude testosterone, easily build up sexual tension, won't beat around the bush. Natural and primal. All good things.

This of course is ok only if you are alpha. If you're a looser that doesn't take action and build oneitis you might as well stick to porn, at least that won't run away with half of your income after 2 years.

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock16 points17 points  (4 children) | Copy


I never thought I'd say this because it's hard to admit it to myself, but /r/TheRedPill is my main vice. I spend too much time on here. I also don't go to bed early enough to have time in the morning to cook my lifting meals.


  • Work on personal projects
  • Get more sleep
  • Hit the gym more often
  • Finish creating and setting up my blog.

See you guys in a month.

Giving up porn, fast food and putting off laundry/apartment cleaning.

I'll shoot and edit 2-3 minutes of raw footage every day.

[–]BlueChilli8 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy

1) Porn. (Been doing pretty good on this one already. Have been getting up to 10 - 14 days free at a time.)

2.) Energy drinks. If no other reason, that's money that should be saved.

3.) Junk foods. Real food only.

New Habits:

1.) Meditation. 10 minutes per day.

2.) Study programming 1 hour per day.

[–]laere2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

With you on the programming bud! Javascript is becoming fucking fun for me.

IMO Learn Golang.

[–]Throwawaters 9 points9 points [recovered] | Copy


  • Stop masturbating: I don't think it's that much of an issue, but I'm sure it's a good willpower exercise.
  • Start going to bed on time/stop using the snooze button: Due to tougher/more frequent workouts, I've been feeling fatigued a lot the past few weeks, my body needs more sleep.
  • Brush teeth at least twice a day: My teeth are in good condition, but I only brush once a day, sometimes twice. I need to be more consistent!

Daily Activities:

  • Drink more water: I'll be needing it as well because of the more frequent workouts.
  • Clean my place: Just 5 minutes of cleaning a day can keep everything nice and tidy.

[–]alfasauce0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I used to wash them 3 times a day until i got them whiter with some gel dentists sell you. It made me wash them every time i ate something, it might help and its always cool to have white teeth :)

[–]GraphicSeniorNudity7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm giving up porn, video games, and internet/reddit binging.

I'm taking up meditation.

And I'm also gonna add a weekly goal of exercise. Everyday at the gym is just not realistic for me.

Those of you giving up masturbation, be warned, it is really really really difficult, especially if you don't have a woman around. I suggest giving up porn instead, and making a conscious effort to reduce how often you jack off. But going cold turkey straight out of the gate might be setting yourself up for failure, which could cascade down onto the other goals you set. 1 step forward 2 steps back kinda thing.

[–]akc1518 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm down.

Giving up booze, spanking the monkey and sleeping more than 8 hours.

Proactive activity is reading 20 pages each night.

[–]alexstryka7 6 points6 points [recovered] | Copy

I fucking love this, a real initiative that I can take part in to definitely improve who I am and make me stronger, I'm well in! I'll give up porn, any unhealthy foods (even though I was barely eating any before), and procrastinating my studies. My challenge will be to lift hard 2-3 times a week with no excuses, instead of 1 or 2 times and sometimes half-assing it. Cheers TRP, see you on the other side!

[–]putinbush100 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If your foods thing isnt that bad, then pick something else. No just skating by.

[–]ManRAh6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

No: Porn, fapping, caffeine.

Was going to say no alcohol, but I enjoy getting shit-faced with my family over Thanksgiving.

Take up: Drawing every day for at least an hour.

[–]cashmunnymillionaire7 points8 points  (2 children) | Copy

Ditching: Porn/Faps, Cigs, Fast-food

Daily: Workout, Music

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I quit cigs Jan 1. Told myself I want to go 1 year without a cig. I kinda do the same thing at the gym. when doing a set of 10 I tell myself 100, it makes getting to 10 much easier. Best thing I've ever done is quit smoking....I will never go back. Good luck dude, you got this shit!

[–]cashmunnymillionaire1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks bruh. I'm a pretty light smoker so it shouldn't be hard, except when I'm drunk.

-chewing tobacco (this will be difficult)

-television (including ballgames and MASH, goddammit)

  • Vice 1: TheRedPill/Facebook/Youtube Internet Meandering
  • Vice 2: Checking phone more than once per half hour
  • Vice 3: None (1/2 are high priority, can't handle a third)

  • Daily Activity: 15 minutes meditation

Sum purpose: Remove mental clutter. Detox a bit from negativity from TheRedPill.

[–]Primemale4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

Giving up:

1) Alcohol (as a social crutch)

2) Fear- causing inaction/procrastination of things I WANT/NEED to get done

3) limit internet use to 2 hours a day at most.

Daily activity : read 1 hour per day (one of the many recommended books I've bought but still not read)

Dear TRP,

I've been lurking this subreddits for about 3 months now and have applied the knowledge here slowly but surely to parts of my life. TRP gave me the knowledge as to how to run my life and as a result, I'm taking 19 units this college semester with a part time job. I'm managing well, and I am doing everything to form this into habit. My one biggest offence is that of complacency which is slowly dying each and everyday.

There's always room for improvement and with my mindset set on "tryhard mode", I will be joining you all on this journey. My 3 vices will be porn, gaming, and unnecessary purchases. I've brought those 3 down significantly however I haven't gone cold turkey. This is the perfect time to do. To the best out of all of us brothers, may this be a hard battle.

So let's kill my addiction useless games, manga aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand porn. Gonna do math and physics everyday from now on.

I will start a journal as well.

[–]snakw126 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

Going to start the vices + daily activity after I write this comment.

Giving up 3 vices: - no Reddit, only time I'll be on Reddit is when I'm looking up a keto recipe - Playing my xbox 360. Hard as hell for me not to sit at the TV for 6 hours on a Saturday playing madden. - No Netflix or any TV show related shit. Been watching 1 house of cards episode each day for past two weeks and I always watch the latest episode of The blacklist. RIP for a month

Daily activity: - 2 approaches a day, can be literally anything. Just as long as I say something to a random person. This will be tough due to my AA - Making my bed every morning.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy


  • Porn
  • Nail biting
  • Sugar


  • Meditation every morning (Headspace)

[–]2rp_valiant11 points12 points  (6 children) | Copy

This year I'll be giving up porn, mindless internet surfing/gaming and netflix for the month. I would give up cigarettes but with my 100-hour-week work schedule I think I would kill myself. I'm going to take up healthy eating - keto specifically. I'm going to go out on a limb and also take up journalling - I've been keeping myself accountable on-and-off for about 2 years and need to get consistent, and this is a great excuse.

Best of luck to all participants!

[–]justindumke4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

You can suspend your Netflix account for up to 90 days. This way you won't have to pay.

[–]Lanefiger3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

That's sort of cheating. If there's no possible way to access it then there's no real danger of giving up. That's like giving up lent for lent.

[–]2rp_valiant0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

nah, I'm not roping the wife into my choices. Plus what Lanefiger said.

[–]Geckobird10 points11 points  (5 children) | Copy

I'm down! No weed, porn, or masturbation starting November 1. I might even start now, at least with porn and masturbation. Forcing myself to do something daily will help me succeed this semester in college instead of procrastinating like I've been doing all semester. Let's go!!!

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

Don't forget, this year we're adding a daily activity to our goals.

[–]Geckobird1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

I thought this meant to give yourself a task each day and do it. If is a specific daily task, I'll go for at least 20 push-ups daily. It's not much, but it's something.

[–]TooMuchToDoo4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm giving up Facebook, Porn and Reddit for NoNothingNovember. So much time is wasted online but I can't afford to give up internet entirely.

My goal is to finish at least one 300 page book over the course of the month.

[–]1v1mebruh3 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy

Giving up:

-porn (Been watching that shit since 4th grade, for the past half year I've been able to go about 2 weeks at a time without it before I relapse for a couple days and I'm about 2 weeks "clean" right now, so let's take it all the way through November at a bare minimum.)

-unproductive computer use past 1 hour (I like to go on the internet for some low energy relaxation, but more than 1 hour a day is just draining time I could be using to improve myself at something more valuable. I need the computer to stay in touch with my professional network, complete applications for grad school, and trade forex, but everything else classifies as unproductive activity for me.)

-weed (I've been on probation for the past 4 years and only have until January until I'm off and get all my charges dropped, so just gotta keep staying clean. I've been clean for a bit before now, but this one's important and sometimes hard to stick to so gotta keep it going.)

Taking on:

-meditation (I've been trying to start meditating daily, but I've only been able to string together a couple days in a row before falling off for a couple days, finally found some good resources to start learning how to meditate for real so I'm gonna do this every day for the next month. I've already been hitting the gym once a day for the past month or so consecutively and that's not hard for me at all so I won't try to scrape by with just that.)

[–]bodiwait0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Good luck with your challenge. Where are you learning meditation from?

[–]fingerthemoon0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy


I recomend Zen Mind Beginners Mind. He gives a good explanation of proper form in the beginning of the book.

The most important thing to learn that takes some people many years, is to rock your hips forward. When you find the right position it doesn't take any muscles to hold it, your body will balance perfectly. Good luck.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy


-There will be no more porn and masturbation. Only cumming inside a vagina is allowed.

-I will not buy food when going outside and I am hungry. Exceptions include essential meals breakfast, lunch and dinner. I will try to always bring my own food when I go to university and when I go clubbing I will just bring a fucking banana to get those energy levels up again.

-I will not visit theredpill for a month. I will merely use reddit to update my thread on nonothingnovember daily.

Daily activity

-I will start reading one chapter of a novel at least every day. When I finish a book, I will start a new one.


[–]ChinmayT2 5 points5 points [recovered] | Copy

Vices to be avoided :-

[] No masturbation.

[] No eating outside.

[] No Soda.

Daily activities:-

[] Start making entries in journal (left in between).

[] Read a novel for atleast 5 minutes. Haven't read one in 10 months.

I'm in. I give up porn, dessert, and pot

I am going to do 2 new activities: I will study 1 hour more than normal, and I will take up krav maga. Where to update?

And more importantly good luck all!

edit: on second thought giving up pot is too easy since I do it like once a month anyways. I'll switch that with netflix as it is the boon of my existence

In November I give up porn, fast food and I won't cram for my exams. I have relied to much on my ability to learn quickly and I could do better if I did a little each day which is the good habit I will form. 1 hour of study a day at least.

Edit: throwing in a 4th one not spending loads of time watching football. Watch way to much football on the weekends.

[–]Sofakingcoolstorybro4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I was only able to honestly stick with one vice. But it was alcohol, and that was huge for me! I also made it a goal to compete in every jiu-jitsu tournament during the winter. Did well, because I had quit drinking and ate healthy ( no more drunkenly buying crap to eat) thanks everybody, stay strong!

[–]aDrunkenWhaler3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

  1. No more porn
  2. No more facebook (fucking time waster)
  3. No more messy house (fuck clutter)

  4. Yes to 1h/day of Yoga. I go to the gym every day, which is awesome, but flexibility is equaly if not more important for health and longevity. It also helps to model your body more armonious, makes you feel better etc.

[–]throwaway-aa25 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

Be careful: the same way you can get injured lifting, you can get injured doing yoga. Just make sure you have a good teacher who knows what they're doing and is very vocal about voicing your problem areas or injuries. Also the type of yoga you practice definitely makes a difference.

Moreover there is also mobility you can get into too. But yoga is pretty dope.

[–]aDrunkenWhaler1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks a lot for the advice. I will be careful. I don't think I'll get a trainer, at least not for now. I'm sure it helps but there are plenty of free stuff out there to teach me what I need to know, and as long as I'm careful and listen to my body I'll be fine. But I do need to take it easy and let my body adapt. I started a few days ago and already feel the difference.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hi guys, 3 months into TRP here, long way to go. Do we just comment our 3 vices and 1 goal for the month over here to show we're participating and then head over to the nonothingnovember sub? But but there's too many betas there! jk jk, Here it goes.

  • Giving up porn and all forms of ejaculation that isn't sex.

Ideally this should give me the balls to approach more, and force me to release the energy in other ways - which is related to my goal.

  • Giving up the habit of staying up late

This should help with two things:

getting my stupid roommate who's sleep is about as delicate as a melting icicle to shut the fuck up about how I keep waking him up by opening the washroom tap or showering at night. More importantly it will force discipline, help with paying attention in school, and paying more attention and being more alert to IOIs and shit tests.

  • Giving up hot showers

Hot showers are a terrible thing - at least for me. It takes grit to start the day off with a cold shower and you feel much better for it. It adds on. You start your day off in a lazy manner it doesn't help. I don't have the vocabulary to better express what I mean, but with each time you challenge yourself you grow.

  • Going to the gym and following Stronglifts 5x5 for a month.

Will help with everything else too. Should help with releasing some of the extra energy, should help me sleep which is something I have struggled with lately, and will get me in good shape!

[–]DONT_reply_with_THIS2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

This November I am going to give up going to bed after midnight on work days and getting up after 8 a.m., needless spending on stupid shit (alcohol, etc), and unhealthy eating and snacking.

In this period I want to commit to bettering myself every day for at least one and a half hours. Activities that fall into this category include reading non-fiction novels, studying chess, practicing golf, and writing (poetry or reflections), and working on my side business.

Gym six days+ a week, I'll throw in an hour of both ab work and stretching a week too.

I have an excellent excel sheet to track goals if anyone wants it.

Cheers gentlemen.

This November, I will give up Porn, Cigarettes, Weekday Drinking and my habit of avoiding sleep.

I will hit the gym for at least an hour or get 10k steps on my fitbit everyday in November including the holiday weekend.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy


  • Porn for all purposes and masturbation for the purpose of avoiding work. One of those "good in moderation but we left moderation behind long ago" things.
  • FB, Reddit, 4chan. Press f5 too much, never end up running out of content so I never get back to work. I'll come back in a month when I can resist the f5 button.
  • Laying in bed after I wake up. Wastes time, makes me late, encourages sloth.


  • Hold to my full nightly routine. Start by 11:30, finish by 12:00. Meditate, journal, update tomorrow's schedule/goal list, and foam roll if it was a workout day.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I honestly never realized how much free time I had in my day. Letting yourself hit f5 and spending five minutes scanning to find one new article just isn't worth it. I never knew how people could watch a movie every day but I was spending longer than a movie's length on Reddit. This is a late update because I've still been pushing away from coming back to social media too hard. New rule is that FB, Reddit, and 4chan are only for downtime. Between sets, eating, in line. A book will always be kept on my phone so when I run out of Reddit to read I can read something productive instead of spinning my wheels.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Abandoned vices:

  • porn

  • weed (except for Nov 25th. Brother and I are going to universal studio for his birthday. We have already planned on smoking and eating some mushrooms)

  • the word "um" I want to consciously remove this word from my vocabulary.

Daily activity:

Been weight lifting since Jan 1 and cardio on the in between days so I'm good there.

Since I won't be smoking I think I'll get back into lucid dreaming. So the daily activity will be to record dreams and practice reality checks. This will also make me go to bed earlier.

[–]fingerthemoon1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Without weed your dreams will become much more memorable.

Lucid dreaming is cool. I use the look at my hands as a trigger to awake in a dream.

I'm surprised to see how much a problem masturbation is for everyone. At least I feel better knowing I'm not the only one!

•giving up porn/masturbation - I will seek other alternatives to keep me busy like going outside for a physical activity.

•giving up junk food/overeating - I'm going to stick to raw fruits and vegetables until I can find some healthy recipes to start cooking.

• I will give up not cleaning house/being sloppy. - my will start dressing better and stop procrastinating on chores.

I think that pretty much included the positive activities I'm going to add.

Good luck everyone! I know I'm going to need it. Stay strong and maintain frame.

No marihuana, video games, or frivolous interneting. I don't masturbate, watch pron, killed the home internet a while ago (gigantic increase in productivity for all family members) but I find I still fuck off on it at work.

My no nothing activity: Finally going to stop making excuses, gym everyday!

Its time to get over the worry and just do it.

Also giving up sex, but that's a bit more forced. Wife is having a cesarean, no sex for 6 weeks afterwards.

[–]hipster-jeezus2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

  1. Stop smoking pot

[–]1RedPillJax2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I've been hitting the booze too hard lately. It hasn't been excessive excessive, but as a guy who used to have a nasty cocaine habit - I should know better than to let addiction creep up on me again. Booze is gone for November.

I quit smoking long ago, but I still go through a tin of Skoal every few days. It's a total vice, makes me spend excess money not only on tins but on whitening strips to keep my teeth in check, and it's just plain gross. Tobacco is out for November.

I've been so-so with my diet lately, but I still 'reward' myself with shit food way too often for it to actually be considered a cheat day or anything of the like anymore. Shit food is gone for November.

As for the daily habit, I'm going to go to the gym every day. Even if it's for twenty minutes to hit the Stairmaster, to stretch, and leave. Any time in the gym is better than not going, period.

I'm starting a new investment plan with my asset manager as of Nov 1 anyway, so saving cash on booze, going out, chewing tobacco, and unnecessary (and shit) food is going to be of nothing but a benefit towards hitting my financial goals for November. Even if the habits don't last, I will have experienced a financial benefit from it.

Here goes nothing - Sunday's going to come quick, but I'm not afraid of it.

For NNN, I've decided to do something very extreme, but I'm doing it to build my willpower and discipline. The vices I will give up will be:

  1. No junk food. Pretty standard: no eating out, no eating anything frozen or from a box. No booze.
  2. No electronic entertainment. No TV or movies. No streaming media. No video games. No porn.
  3. No sleeping in my bed. Instead, I will sleep on my balcony in my sleeping bag and bivvy sack. I've done this many times before in my last job, and I know the sleeping system I own is up to the task of protecting me from the elements. If I get sick, then I failed to properly use the system and have failed the challenge.

As for my daily activity, I will spend every day developing my web series. I am in charge of writing, costumes, storyboards, and concept art.

I have chosen an extreme challenge because my bed has ruined every attempt at Monk Mod I have ever taken.

[–]WarmApfelPi3 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

Sleeping in bed is awful for me. I've been sleeping on the floor for nearly two months, while the wife stays in bed, and I've never had so many epiphanies in such a short time.

[–]WarmApfelPi0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Didn't realize I never replied to you. I don't wake up if I sleep in bed. Alarms, etc do nothing. I got on the floor because of a foot injury and didn't see a reason to go back.

I got to heal, get good rest, was able to get up with an alarm. Before I'd drift off I'd always go into meditation and I'd figure something out.

I already haven't jerked off for two years. So that kinda doesn't count. The vices I'm giving up:

2: Stop squeezing pimples and black heads obsessively when stressed

3: Stop worrying about rejection (approach anxiety)

Will do:

[–]Operator2161 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I give up the following things for the following reasons:

Porn and masturbation. As for the same reason as many men here; Instant gratification of this type may be detrimental to personal development of our game. Get the satisfaction from your plates, not your hand.

Cigarettes. I've personally slumped from my electronic varient to these easy to buy, easy to use, easy to share classics. Not something everyone will quit however I need to focus on the long-term, not the easy.

Sleeping in and late-late nights. In combination these two have slowed my personal development by half, just by shortening my days. Bedtime is now 11-12 on weekdays, 1 on weekends. Wake up has to come before 9 each day. Ideally 7am.

I will also be focusing on acedemics, spending, at least, an hour a day to study and do homework. This should keep my mind at ease through November.

Fucking perfect timing. My exams for my final year of high school last all through November, and our schoolies (drunken binge) starts Dec 2.

I give up all jerking off/porn, all internet that isn't study/once a day TRP, my snooze button, hot showers and all alcohol.

I'm committing to a daily routine. I will wake up at 7 every morning, do push ups and sit ups til failure, meditate, eat A1 all month, do 8 hours minimum of study every day, and get to bed by 9:30 latest.

If I can fucking do this and this thread helps keep me on track, I will be forever indebted to TRP (not that I'm not already).

For November: I'm giving up pot.

Daily Activity: Reading.

I'm in. I'll give up porn, games and YouTube. For my daily activity I will meet someone new and small talk.

[–]Exothermic_buttsex1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'll go with: 1) Reddit outside posting to this thread. 2) Porn. 3) Stop being lazy and do 20+ pushups/day or lift for physical activity. Daily activity: 5 page/day on my dissertation.

Got a spreadsheet, tracking this motha. Let's do this.

[–]2IVIaskerade1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

In the spirit of No (to) Nothing November, instead of doing something everyday, say no to nothing. Someone invites you out? Go. I don't care that you were going to organise your yugioh cards, go. Local radio competition appealing for callers? Guess who's calling? (it'syou, dingus) Friend looking for partners for a charity run? Good thing you've been hitting the gym.

This works better for college-aged guys with at least a basic social life, and it'll really imorove your outlook if you're always going out and having fun. It'll show you and downs of being impulsive, and help cultivate a more well-rounded personality.

In my first year of uni I committed to doing everything I was offered on fresher's week at least once. Joined every society I could, went out every night for three weeks straight, and had an absolute blast being rushed off my feet with things to do.

[–]NewspaperMuppet1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I give up porn, social media(<--fuck this seriously), and jerking. I will approach someone everyday

[–]Silthir1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm in for this!

Vices to give up will be

  1. No more staying up longer than my set wakeup time allows
  2. No kind of unhealthy food (except for the canteen at university, which I pretty much depend on)
  3. No more clicking around aimlessly on Reddit and similar sites - I will be checking TRP sometimes, because I'm still thirsty for information, and don't think this counts as aimless

Daily activities will actually be 2 at once, because I pretty much have to do the first one either way. Here goes:

  1. Spend at least 8 hours for studying
  2. Play a set on my guitar, and learn a new song when everything goes well

I will be updating on reddit, only real option for me.

Cheers everyone, kick your vices good

Giving up: weed alcohol soda

daily habit: meditation

keep yourself accountable. noone else will.

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

First, I'm going to disallow all depressive thoughts - instead of reasoning with them.

Second, I'm allowing only one small sugary drink or sugary food item per day. I'm not fat, but I currently use sugar to boost my mood. Going to see what happens without it. (If anyone has psychological dietary advice, feel free to comment.)

Third, I'm going to eat only meals I make.

I'm going to meditate for at least 20 minutes every day.

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

This is a great idea and you can count me in.

I'm giving up porn and watching TV. I'm spending way too much time watching political coverage on the 24hr news networks. I'm also considering user -r_r-'s idea and cancelling my home internet service.

As for my daily activity I will talk to five women a day or what Dante Nero calls "laying the five bricks".

See you on the other side gents.

[–]Debauchery_Tea_Party1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm in. I'll quit porn; reading web articles and forums as a procrastination tool, mindlessly refreshing every ten minutes; and my dependence on coffee, I'm addicted to it and it's not good when I'm either jittery because I've had five cups, or jittery because I've had none.

For my activity: minimum 30 minutes a day of specific touch-typing practice for an audio transcription job I've got lined up once I finish Year Twelve in three weeks.

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

Should've done this last year.

Goal 1: No Reddit (Yeah, I can live without a badge.)

Goal 2: No leaving things disorganized - this absolutely kills my productivity. A clean workspace makes for a clean mind.

Goal 3: No procrastination - this too kills productivity. As stuff builds up, you put it off more because you want a nice large block of time to do it. Then you spend all your time on Reddit, because you never have large enough blocks of time to do anything else. Need to buckle down and do things, even if I only have 10 minutes to work.

Thing to accomplish: Having a working knowledge of Ruby on Rails by the end of the month. Started learning coding in C last month, hoping to have some applicable skills by the end of the year.

(+) 1 hour guitar practice a day

(++) meditate every morning 15 min

[–]MrJugsMcBulge1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

What the heck, I'll give it a shot.

Vices to Give Up

  • Leaving the television on for background noise while I'm doing other things - I do this a lot and it's a big waste of time and mental effort. I end up 'watching' a bunch of dumb shit like football, cooking shows, episodes of South Park/Family Guy/Simpsons/Futurama I've seen dozens of times and pseudo-historical documentaries on the History Channel ("was Hitler an alien ghost trying to count his pawned cars in Alaska?"). I'll still watch the few TV shows I actually like, but when I need background noise while I do paperwork or house-cleaning, it'll be music or talk radio.

  • Mindless, repetitive internet browsing - I spend too much time checking the same sites (reddit, news, some sites related to my hobbies, etc) over and over and over throughout the day, just to see if there's anything new. It's a sign of addiction or 'fear of missing out' or whatever and it wastes way too much time; all the updates will be there whether I check a sites 10 times a day or once. For the month of November, and hopefully beyond, I'll restrict myself to checking my favorite sites only once each per day, with only 30 minutes total each day for checking news/updates.

  • Video Games - I'm not a hard-core gamer or anything, but I waste far too much time playing Magic the Gathering on my tablet. On November 1st, I delete those apps and I'll read some of the e-books in my 'stuff to read' pile instead of gaming.

Daily Activity

  • Writing - I'm not at the stage of 'writing' my novels yet, but I have a bunch of plot, world-building and character-sketch notes that I need to organize and some gaps to fill in concerning important details. During November, I want to spend at least 30 minutes per day doing some kind of writing.

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


First of all I will give up porn AND masturbating. No edging, no pictures, nothing. The other 2 times in my life that ive done this I was on fire. My only release will be the mouth/pussy of a girl.

Second I will give up facebook apart from the messaging app and event pages.

Third I will give up youtube/reddit/ random internet searching to only when I am eating.

Each day I will meditate for 15 minutes and approach 1 person in the street.

[–]Profdiddy1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I can do chocolate, malbec wine and masturbation. I will hit the gym four times a week and write the other three days.

I plan to give up porn, laziness (skipping goals) and excessive daydreaming. The daily activity I will take up will be meditation.

[–]retired_destro1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Giving up: Video games Social media Junk food

I am doing ok on the junk food, but I will binge and be sick for the rest of the day. For my activity, I will:

Work on my affiliate website for 1 hour per day.

I'm in my last class for my MBA so it may seem tough to add an hour of something else, but I waste way more time on the three activities so I will be fine!

[–]Corndog_Enthusiast1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

For November, I'm going to give up PMO, junk food (only whole foods; no refined sugar or added sugar), and procrastination.

My daily activity will be at least 15 minutes of meditation, morning and night.

[–]Aphoc1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I give up gaming of any kind and focus on the hobbies I laid aside such as my guitar.

I'll also have to eat more healthy stuff such as white meat and salad, and stop masturbating again.

[–]bodiwait1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

No wanking. No staying up late at home. No TV alone.

Since I'll have a lot more free time, I'll pick 3 habits:

30min calisthenic exercises everyday (lost the habit with my new job)

Study everyday for my medical internship exam (December 4th)

Be on time in the morning (job)

It's a lot to pickup, so I'll allow two missed days per week and still consider myself on track (for exercise and studying)

[–]skeletonized1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy


Stop masturbating: I've done it before as a willpower exercise. Regressing back into it has become an opportunity cost burden to other major life areas. It's an addiction.

Start going to bed on time/stop using the snooze button: I've been feeling fatigued a lot the past few weeks, too many family/workplace changes, my body needs more sleep.

Brush teeth at least twice a day: I had a root canal in January and that $$$ could have been allocated to a different project.

Daily Activities:

Drink more water: My office has free water bottles and I still don't even average 1 a day... and I live in a desert!

Transcendental Meditation: I keep hearing about it from Howard Stern and Jerry Seinfeld. If I maintain the improved sleeping pattern I will have time for this in the morning, before daily life starts.

[–]Justtherightone1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I thought about this today, and had decided to go with something simple, like picking porn, wanking, and fast food as my vices.

I decided to say screw that and go harder. I'm going to bundle up porn with everything else on my laptop (Media, Games, Netflix, Youtube) My own exception being playing games/Watching movies hotseat with friends.

As for the daily activity, I'm sure anything that I'll be doing is infinitely better than being plugged in, but I'm going to focus on proper eating, meditating, finding a job, exercise and more.

This is my birthday gift to myself, and I'm both anxious and excited.

  1. I'm giving up porn/ masturbation.
  2. Social media on top of that and completely limit my internet access. (3. Finally I'm going to stop being so depressed and break the negative cycle the world has created for me.
  3. Stop saying I will find a job and actually take action and find one. With that money I will regularly go to the gym.)

5.No last minute work

Daily activities; 1. Go so sleep on time "When the sun goes down, you go down" 2. Reading every day. (The limiting internet will allow this) 3. Go outside every day (for a walk if I have nothing to do) and drink more water. 4. Meditation. 10 minutes minimum.

There is no more giving up or slacking off anymore. I'm sure many of us can agree that we've fucking had enough. I feel like I've been stuck in the same place in my life for a long time and doing the exact same shit everyday will keep me there. Suffering and enduring through this is the only way to get through it. Don't expect it to be easy because often times fighting these habits will feel like the hardest thing you can face when really they are fucking microscopic in the bigger picture. Just fuck it, I'm doing this.

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

It took me a while to decide, but I finally set my goals.

No: - Porn and/or stroking the purple-headed yogurt slinger. - Social media (including Reddit, other than to continue studying TRP). - Online video games.

Once a day: - Work on my graduate school applications (4 top 10 programs in the nation).

[–]Betterthanuatlife1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Sure I'll quit PMO, Alcohol, and drugs for this extended period of time. Alcohol, drugs, and porn will be easy (because I'm not a degenerate) but Masturbation in general will be a bit harder. I already do a lot during my days, like manual labour at home (helping around tending the garden, shoveling gravel etc), I work out 5 days per week, I read, and I study up on a lot of things. Actually I'll go and tend to to garden right now.

[–]borjitaea1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Vices: 1) Fap. Won't Fap this november. If I Fap I'll let you cut my happy closest friend. 2) Internet. I only have it on smartphone and college. So gonna turn it off unless necessary/not having nothing more to do (bus) 3) Procastination. Gonna try to notice when I procastinate and avoid it. It easier without fap/internet though

Goals: 1) Read non-fiction or/and study 1-2 hours daily 2) Waste less time lifting. I mean, being more efficient. 3) Improve my inner self. It may be meditating, anxiety, social relations... Etc

I won't include drinking or smoking because I almost never drink or smoke.

And, as an interesting goal, you could try to go full vegan/vegetarian mode, don't eat something if it comes from animals.

Pd: not so good in english, tell me if I had some mistakes or could improve something.

[–]ReturnThroughAether1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Count me in. I'll give up porn, mobile games at work, and tortillas (bye bye breakfast burrito/moe Mondays).

I'll be adding a good amount of sleep every night and some guitar practice. Time to focus up at work, not feel run down, and lose more weight.

[–]Blahshizer1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Long time lurker here. I know it's last minute, but it's still October here and I want in. Here are my vices:

1) Masturbation / porn 2) Going to sleep after midnight on a weeknight 3) Picking at pimples on my face

For my daily activity, I would like to ride my bike for 30 minutes minimum every day to get some cardio and to get out of the house. If I am away from my bike, I will go for a walk or a run. I have been going to the gym for lifting very consistently, and I think I should supplement it with some light cardio. I was not sure if I was going to participate, but you guys have inspired me. Best of luck to everyone!

porn, fapping, and eating out. continuing my cut for my diet this month and trying to get as lean as possible for graduation. im going to dedicate 10 minutes of cleaning my house and car a day. not saying my place is a mess, however 10 minutes will easily make this place almost sterile and no clutter. should free the mind.

This will be my first #nonothingnovember really looking forward to doing this not only for myself, but to be part of something with a group of people dedicated to testing themselves, and pushing their limits to try to become a better version of themselves.

The things I'm giving up:

Impulsive spending - this speaks for itself, I'm sure some of you have been here.

Snacking - biggest detriment to my progress in the gym.

Party drugs - been meaning to stop altogether, this could be a good place to start.

As for my daily activity, I will do something creative. Either draw in my sketchpad that I've used once in my life, or work on a painting. If I whip up anything decent I'll make sure to post!

I intend to delete Internet dating apps (Bumble), and any gender-related/dating sites i.e. Redpill Reddit, loveshack etc. Whilst the information is useful it is highly addictive, very destructive to read and is absolutely making me miserable. I have to ease myself out of this addiction, it is quite literally poisoning my mind and making me despise women to such an extent it's unhealthy. Furthermore, I am also going to stop looking at my bastard iPhone so much, it is a complete waste of time, vacuous and self-absorbed. Lifting and job are already taken care off, but I'm really excited to be buying a new flat within next couple of months, with a lot of renovation work to get stuck into and really focus the mind! I've done it before and it is very satisfying work.

[–]Subbbie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Giving up Fast Food, swearing, any form of wasting time before 4pm - social media/reddit/games.

Going to pick exercising back up, am still recovering from knee surgery, but there is now things I can do that I couldn't 2 weeks ago.

Hopefully those 3 things will help me keep my good grades through the tougher part of the semester and get my health back on track.

The fast food and swearing are going to be so hard. I'm a 3rd year pre-med student, and taking heavy core science classes in preparation for applying next summer. Fast food is my life right now, I never have time to prepare food at home. And even if I did I don't know what I could take with me that could last all day in my rucksack. I leave my house at 6.30am or so, and drive 30min to school and stay there till about 10/11pm. Any ideas anyone?

  1. I'm giving up sugar. Let's see if I can go keto for a month.

Vices to eliminate:

-No more mindlessly browsing reddit/internet, (TRP, news, essentials max 30 mins per day)

-No more overeating/stuffing myself, watching nutrition in general

-No more mobile gaming and gaming in general (holy shit this might suck)

Daily Activity: Make a TWO hour block of time every day to study for or review my class work. (Exceptions for exam or paper due the next day)

[–]locolopes0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm in for this, except my aim is not for it to be just November, I'm aiming to get rid of these vices for good.

I am done with cigarretes, I've been a social smoker for a while.

I am quitting pornography, I've used it as a crutch and as an excuse to not go out at times, especially in between relationships.

I am significantly dropping my consumption of internet blogs, even TRP, limiting it to 30 minutes a day.

Good luck to everyone taking on this challenge, let's get shit done.

I already don't smoke or drink so I can't really think up three at the moment.

I'll also chat up more broads.

[–]RageLife0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Exactly the kick in the ass I was looking for.

No weed, no alcohol, no buying stupid shit.

[–]ThePhenomenal10 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I have improved myself enormously over the last year. I lost 60lbs (still have another 50lbs to go before I'm at 10% BF). I stopped deluding and lying to myself and other people. I lift 3 times a week and fight depression daily. So there are not many BIG things left on the list to improve on.


  • Keeping some things to myself
  • Stop texting girls unless it's about me shooting a load inside her


  • Doing at least 2 times a week some cardio
  • Reading/learning 1 hour a day
  • Positive self talk
  • Going outside for a walk,socializing at least once a day.

[–]recon_johnny0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Since my link was removed:

My Goals:

Over the next 30 days, I'm going to:

  • Give up porn/masturbation

  • Give up Internet time wasters (I do need Internet for work, but for non-work related will be here for updates and to pay bills

  • Calorie count daily/maintain food log

My daily to do is:

  • Do cardio for at least 30 mins everyday and stretch for at least 30 mins everyday. I have a torn rotator cuff that has been problematic since surgery. I may have additional tear, but am taking a "let's wait and see if things get worse" approach. This has severely limited my lifting. Compounding the issue is a surgically repaired meniscus and arthritis in my knee, making jogging near impossible and walking difficult.

But fuck it. It needs to be done.

Additional to do: There are a number of projects (not listed here for anonymity) that need to get done. My spare time freed from time wasting will be put into these efforts.

I made a post in nonothingnovember but we can't link to reddit for good reason so I will paste the goals here.

I vow to give up:

  • Porn/Masturbation
  • Alcohol
  • Reddit after 9pm.

Every day I will:

  • Read for at least one hour (I've got a backlog the size of my steam games library)

  1. Too much time wasted on computer, limit myself to work and an hour of whatever.
  2. Swap from dirty to controlled bulk.
  3. Being a bitch about approaching and not bothering on a night out.

Which leads into my goals:

  1. Start approaching at least five girls per night out.
  2. Read for at least an hour a day
  3. Start meditating

Vices to give up - Porn/fapping Bad food/sweets Alcohol

Habits to start - Hit the gym seriously. No excuses. Start learning a new language.

[–]Gigandeth0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This post came at the right time. I am slowly getting to where I want to be. I hold more eye contact with pedestrians, sing on the street if I want to and I am no more scared of speaking out when affected.

The only issue is that porn/masturbation are drawing me back in what I want to do. I don't want to kid myself and just resist to the temperations for 1 month just to comfortably slide back into them again. Therefore all the things I say no to this November, at least for me, will remain in the place where they belong to. Away from me.

List of Nos:

  • No porn/masturbation
  • No more procrastination
  • No more fear of social interactions
  • No more reddit (1 month)

List of Dos:

  • Finish all the books planned to read
  • Get on top of my programming skills
  • Learn how to play the guitar
  • Achieve internal peace

Giving up:

1) Porn 2) People taking charge of my life and not me 3) Weed


Becoming an android app developer. Always wanted to work with tech.

[–]thebadmanpuntdbaxter0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

  1. Social media
  2. Porn
  3. Fast food

[–]Stonish0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Took some time to figure them out but here I go:

Vices - quit porn, working on it for a while, I can make this happen - no masturbation, I struggle with it and it's a source of a big problem, sounds difficult so seems worth it - stop making mess around me, I never put things back on its place, this needs to change.

Daily activities - clean up the room once a day, I need this habbit A LOT - clean the dishes once a day, seriously!

Stay strong brothers!

[–]bigcaslon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

FUCK YES. 3 things I am giving up: porn, media, and fast food.

Daily activity: study medicine for at least 1 hour.

[–]Endorsed ContributorThotwrecker0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Long post because some of the replies in here had me feeling some type of way.

I've been browsing TRP and been involved with early PU way back in the day, but never really participated. Mainly because I had an active, semi-popular reddit account on a few subs I would hang out on, and I didn't want people to flame me for being on RP.

But I read this and knew what I had to do. Reddit is a massive fucking waste of time if you're not using it for something very specific and beneficial. Learning about a career from a career subreddit, learning about financial strategies, learning about lifting and nutrition, etc, reddit can be OK for that, but I cannot believe how much time I've wasted on validation seeking by trying to "help" the netizens of reddit on stupid ass subreddits like askmen, relationships, seduction, relationships, politics. I got into this because I work super hard and felt like I needed some good, chill intellectual discussion, but Reddit has turned me into a validation junkie.

I spent my HS overcoming this shit, learning not to give a fuck, and pursue real life accomplishments. I quit gaming and porn, got girls, joined a frat. But now I'm a 20-something posting on bullshit reddits for zero purpose.

So I deleted my account and am starting with #1: No Redditing. Going to use TRP for 10 minutes a day to update my November log, read or two articles that are relevant to my life, learn, and close the window. Not going to bother with the rest of reddit; it's a complete waste of time. Go learn by checking out the rare gems on subs relating to health, wealth, and sex, but never again will I become some purposeless participant in the karma game.

For number 2, I'm giving up excess sugars and bullshit foods. I'm sticking to a strict plan. I was ripped in college, but 3 years of being a software engineer have transformed me from a broke college stud to a chubby, typical Bay Area guy. I am pretty tall and good looking, so I always just rationalized it away as "whatever I still look good." I don't know how I've been in denial about this for so long - I feel like a chick.

My GF does crossfit and is in great shape - and when I got her, I was still reasonably shredded. I realize now I worked out in college because I wanted to get girls and look cool, and once I started getting girls and feeling good about myself, I let my body go to waste. I can't believe I have blinded myself to this and I feel disgusted. When I was young, I worked out with so much pain motivating me; I wanted to defy the stereotype of indian guys and look like a physique bodybuilder. Somewhere along the way, I realized "hey, I look good enough to use my game and confidence to have decent success, why get better?" And I look at all my bros from college and they are all chubby or skinnyfat now. What happened to us all?

For number 3, I'm giving up Sundays. I have realized that being in a relationship has drained me of monk time. I have no time to just be alone and think, no time to just work out, prep some meals, work on advancing a career or hobby, go hiking alone, or just do things. Every Sunday, I waste it doing dumb coupley shit with my GF. But Saturday's going to be her day, Sunday is going to be my day. My ass needs to get into a top B-school; my company will subsidize my MBA and I'm basically pissing away an opportunity if I don't make it happen. But what do I do Sunday morning instead of waking up to get my GMAT up? Brunch & lazy morning sex with the GF, followed by some pointless activity, chilling with friends, etc.

Sundays gotta go. M-F belongs to my job and my workout plan now, Sat belongs to social commitments, hobbies, GF, going out, etc. Sundays are mine.

As for what I'm going to do... I'm getting my ass back in the gym. I used to love going to the gym, but I stopped because oh poor me, work is so hard. Oh poor me, I'm tired, I have so much to do, I still look fine. 3 years of fucking around, 1 week on, 1 month off type of shit has left me chubby. I still have good strength - I can bang out 250+ DL and squats, and thankfully I have some muscle tone that's remained. But I shudder to think of what I could have been if I maintained the gym work ethic I had from 18-20.

Bottom line is, the pain of remaining the way I am is finally too much. What's the point of money if you are not mentally and physically strong? What's the point of pussy if you use it as an excuse for why you are "fine as you are, thank you very much." What's the point of being 24 if you're going to live with this "it is what it is, I'm doing OK and that's enough for me" kind of mentality that a 60 year old might have?

Big thanks to /u/KidStrangelove - His post at the top about cancer & regaining his momentum helped me see that my excuses and the story I tell myself for why I do what I do is complete bullshit.

Time is running out. If I keep up my current habits, this predicts I'll die in 2063. If I change, I might have till 2085. Somewhere between 1.5 and 2.5 billion seconds. So I'm going to smoke the last of this weed, bust a nut to my favorite Alexis Texas video, hit up my favorite food korean BBQ, and spend Halloween getting high with my GF, watching dumb shit on netflix, and eating munchies. The day after that, I'm going to try to start adding 20 years to my life.

[–]Skica250 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No Porn, No eating out(garbage food), no lurking on internet more then 1 hour per day

I will learn everyday (minimum one hour) for my exams

Gl everybody

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Long time lurker, this is my first post. Apologies in advance for the wall of text below.

I swallowed the red pill in July after a girl fucked me over and immediately embarked on Monk Mode. I've made great progress since then regularly lifting 5x a week, maintaining a keto diet, meditating 45 mins a day as well as instilling a mentality that I have to put myself first and constantly be striving to be the best version of myself. However i've stalled this past month and now is the best time to stop the 3 vices I feel have been holding me back:‎

  1. Porn/Masturbation - I havent been laid in a long while and this is one of the things stopping me from going out and being social and meeting women. I waste lots of time finding the perfect clip and its time better spent on doing something beneficial to my life.

  2. Internet - Directly linked to number 1, i find myself at times surfing the web when bored and wasting time on youtube. While it has its uses I am going to cut the internet off in my house. I am giving my modem to my friend so if I really want to use the internet I have to go to the library or a starbucks. Maybe can even meet a girl there. I still can use the internet at work but this will minimise the most unproductive time spent.

  3. Alcohol - I use this as a crutch in social situations. I rely on it so drink excessively when im out. I feel like a different person on booze and that is not right. Given my fitness goals I need to eliminate this vice and alcohol is nothing but empty calories that go straight to fat.‎

I want to earn as much as possible and get far in my career so have decided to take some difficult financial exams next year. I hate studying with a passion and have not always been the hardest worker but I am going to commit to studying at least 2 hours a day for my exams.

Here's to a successful November lads.‎

What is this?

[–]sloopjohnb110 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Giving up smoking. Giving up porn/sexy videos. Giving up drinking.

Going to the gym (4-5 days a week) and playing my guitar every day.

[–]Kingoffistycuffs0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'll give up porn and fast food. That's about it for negative shit. But, I'll tackle 2 positive things since that's what I'm lacking currently. I'll give 100% effort to my new career and I'll hit my weights at home till I can afford a gym membership and start lifting heavy!!

[–]TooMuchPesto0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No masturbation, no food that I didn't bring from home and no procrastination (schoolwork, gym) I'll be practising the guitar for at least ten minutes every day

[–]Wadzilla20000 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I'm going no sugar, no eating food I haven't prepared and no lying. I have problems telling people how it is and a lot of the time I lie for no reason. This month I will truly express how I feel and all time and stick to the truth no matter the consequences.

As for the activity on top of biking and going to the gym I will be picking up a pair of skates for playing hockey, learning how to snowboard, and going on dates that I will try and balance vice 2 and 3 with.

[–]aditas0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

As a man you should always be considering the consequences. Get good at calculating the right moves.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy






Hit the gym

Get a job by the end of the month

[–]greyhat20100 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

3 vices - Stop smoking, stick to my diet (ie one cheat meal per week, healthy the rest of the time), snooze button (up at 5 am every weekday).

1 new thing - I already go to the gym 4/5 times a week but my new actiuvity will be walk for 30 mins + per day. Will update here cheers from the UK.

[–]jxcel0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'll throw my hat into the ring on this. Basically I'll just be rehashing the goals that I've been attempting for the past few months with varying degrees of success.

  • No fap/no porn
  • No soda
  • Less time on chans/reddits

And the positives

  • Stick to workout schedule
  • Stick to cut/calorie counting

Like I said, I've been trying these goals all at the same time for the past few months, but maybe my pseudo-public announcement will increase the pressure. You're all my accountabili-buddies!

[–]1BoogersAreTasty0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm giving up eating in the evening. I'll do it by going to bed early.

I'll go to bed early because I'll be so tired from getting up early and because I've been doing 20 minutes of weight training and 20 minutes of cardio.

I'll add in 30 minutes per day of study for a new certification I've been wanting to get for awhile.


  1. I'll give up eating in the evening after 8:00 pm.

  2. I'll wake up early (5:30 am is my goal)

  3. I'll do 40 minutes of exercise (20 minutes each of weight training and cardio)

  4. I'll go to bed early at night (probably before 10:00 pm since I'll be pretty tired from getting up early and working out).

  5. I'll study 30 minutes per day for my new certification.

If I do this, I'll be a long way towards my certification and I'll be much closer to my desired health, fitness and "looking good" goals.

[–]monobrauw0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

My vices:
Office sedentarism
Write at least for 25 minutes for the project I've been procrastinating .
I'll be logging on Medium under the same username if you want to join me

[–]tirpt0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm going to give up the following three things for november:

video games, useless/unproductive surfing on the internet and the snooze button.

I'm going to do 3 things each day which help me with my career/school. Also, I'm going to eat healthy and avoid unhealthy snacks.

[–]redpilledjack0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ok, this just might be the kick in the ass that I need. I'll give up porn, junk food and waking up after 9 a.m. As for activity... I'll pick up running as an exercise.

[–]Niqueaveli0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

  • Porn
  • Fast food
  • No drinks but water

  • Meditate, Gym, Clean my apartment, Stretch, Read, Cook. Basically anything that doesn't make the day feel like another wasted day.

My body is ready. Lord knows I need this.

[–]MindTheFuture0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Alright, I'm in.

No energy drinks & soda.

No abundant recreational internet. 30min daily some-limit.

No snooze in the morning.

Add: Draw or play an instrument every day.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm giving up surfing the internet. It's a huge time killer for me and it is a really easy vice to fall into. I'm really starting to feel like I am distracting myself to death. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, and YouTube are sucking so much of my valuable time.

I'm giving up shitty food. I'm going to get back into my gym routine. I used to eat very clean and go to CrossFit every day, but over the last 6 months I have slowly gotten away from that.

[–]TheRedRain0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Little bit late, I read this a few days ago but took my time deciding what I wanted to do. I also want to do 3 beneficial ones rather than

For a month I will give up

Fast Food Porn Mindless Browsing

And every day for a month I will:

Cook a healthy meal for meal prep

Do some sort of physical activity

Do some work on my hobby

Baby steps, I know.

Cheers for finally giving the motivation TRP

[–]Einsteinsmooostache0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Removing: alcohol, tobacco, porn

Adding: gym mon-sat, reading/writing daily

3 vices


Frivolous spending ( I spend way too much of my money on food out).

Putting off assignments


I want to do one interesting thing I week. I have a busy schedule which makes me inclined to stay in all the time. I need to go out more

[–]FoolishWiseGuy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

For a month I will give up fapping/internet porn, no fast food, procrastinating on the internet.

Goals: Cook at least one hot meal per day, futsal for 3 days a week, wake up early (6:30-7), Practice dutch on duolingo for 20 min a day, read a book before sleep for 30 min.

It won't be easy but damm im looking forward to the challenge.Will be reporting feedback on my notepad at the end of every day.

[–]doctorflorian0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ok. I'm in again. Here are my three vices to kill:

#1 - Not using the internet for distraction. If I have downtime, I will go for a walk or read a book instead. Maybe listen to a podcast or music. No to clickbait! If I come upon a potentially interesting website while I am working on my computer, I'll click on the link and save the website in my reading list, so I can look at it later. The point is that whatever I do on my computer, I want it to have a purpose. There is a time to learn from online sources, but not "quickly in between".

#2 - No snacks. I managed to do that last year, but have since lost control of my eating habits. Time to reign them in again.

#3 - Getting up early. I will get up at 5 am every day, or at the latest by 7 am. I have already started to implement that since last week - still, doing that consistently for a whole month is not easy. It means I have to consistently sleep by 10 - 11 pm. On the flipside, I can already get lots of stuff done very early in the day.

What will I actually do for #NoNothingNovember? I will work at least one hour per day on my website lifesciencementor.com and post one article every week that is not an update for #NoNothingNovember. How will I be efficient? I get the impression that I need much longer for certain tasks than required. Why is that? Let's say, I am writing an article, and while I am writing, I get an idea. So I follow up on that idea and get distracted while I dig for an old document or start dreaming about alternative goals. Instead, I will do the following: 1. define the goal of a specific project, 2. think about what I have to do to get it done, 3. define the action steps I need to take. If I get an idea in between, I will write it down so I don't forget it and continue working on my original action step. Then, after the step is done, review the idea I had and see whether it is worth picking up. I was always afraid I'd stifle my creativity with such an approach. I guess it's time to find out if I am less or indeed more productive with the "new" way.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Posting here

  • Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night

  • No Fapping

  • No Procrastination

I'll be spending my time this month and likely the rest of the year building my skills as a writer and speaker as well as learning guitar. Good luck to all of you other guys.

[–]lllkill0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]1BoogersAreTasty0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Day 1: Did full Leg and Core workout. Nothing else as it was Sunday

Day 2: I ate after 8 pm, I did not wake up early, I did not do 40 minutes of exercise, I did not study 30 minutes

Day 3:

I haven't given up on this challenge, I just switched my posting of my results over to the Physical 30 day SMV Capstone challenge.

[–]doctorflorian0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Day 1, November 1st, 2015

No Distractions I did not get distracted by diving into any internet clickbait sites. I did check baseball stats and looked at a forum for 5 - 10 minutes or so while I was having lunch/dinner, but other than that, I focused on my work.

No snacks None eaten.

Getting up between 5 and 7 am I slept until shortly before 7 am. I would have preferred to wake up at 5 am, yet still, 6:50 am is still within the range I have set.

Working on my website for at least one hour Thanks to my distraction-free environment, I actually spent 3 - 4 hours getting a blog post together: http://lifesciencementor.com/nonothingnovember-2015-edition/

In conclusion, Day 1 was successful.

Now if I could only figure out how to change my flair, that would be great. If I click on edit in the upper right hand corner of the screen, I don't find an option to change that flair. Anyone having a similar experience? Thanks!

[–]Chrisl190 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I am giving up Porn, weed and the extreme amount of sugary snacks I consume. Also I will make sure to do a minimum of 45 minutes of physical activity everyday.

I'm hoping this diminishes the effects of depression I have been feeling all summer.

I've got some work to do. I used to be a productive and reforming beta but I've relapsed into shittiness and haven't made any decent attempts at self-improvement since last year.

I'm very familiar with TRP as a whole, but I have a hard time telling the difference between not giving a fuck and not being motivated. Basically, I lost my purpose.

I need to sacrifice:

-getting up late, I cut it close every morning

-procrastination, I put shit off constantly

-the words 'sorry' and 'my bad'. I say it way, way too much. If I'm really sorry, I'll say 'I apologize'

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I cut off refined sugar this month & getting out of bed past 10am.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I've been slammed at work. But I've been getting my workout in every, single day.

I've been doing mainly olympic style lifts or multi-joint compound exercises. Including but not limited to, bench-press, squat, rows, pull-ups, deadlifts, power cleans.

I've been averaging around 9 hours of sleep. Though I think this might be too much. I recently had my testosterone tested and it was on the low end. I was lucky enough to get prescribed some androgel. I'm still in the first week of that, so I'll keep you updated how that works out.

As far as nutrition. I could definitely kick it into a higher gear. You can tell by my pic, my body fat % is WAY too high. As far as solid meals, I'm eating great. Lots of steak, chicken, and fish. But I am having trouble kicking the soda. Not because of the taste, but the caffeine. I know I could do diet soda, but I feel like that still doesn't help. I'm probably consuming close to 3500 calories and 200 grams of protein per day.

[–]bikermonk0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Thank You for existing in this world. I give up

1)Wasting time on internet (Includes Porn and NonSense Blogs)

2)Unhealthy Food (Specially Coffee)

3)Anger [Even if I write everything down in a little diary and then have to buy a flamethrower in December]

I commit to start working out. I have been having high blood pressure and yesterday my fasting sugar was found to be 131. This is alarmingly close to Diabetes.

I will update my stuff on reddit, because that is where it started.

[–]SephiXen0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Coffee isn't unhealthy unless you're drinking shit coffee. Coats and protects your teeth, helps keep your bowel movements regular, and caffeine is the active ingredient in any pre-workout you'd take before a good lift.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

My three vices that I will give up are

  1. Trenbolone
  2. Dianabol

The one daily activity I will pick up will be mastubration.
