It's that time of year again where we concentrate on discipline with #NoNothingNov 2018

Join with our NNN Tracker on TRP.RED

Welcome to No Nothing November 2018!

Every year, for the month of November, we challenge 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 in previous years, they'll remember that there's great satisfaction from achieving self-set goals, so let's get started on our 2018 #NoNothingNov

The Challenge

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. If you chose sugar, get your jollies today because at 11:59pm you're throwing away all your Halloween treats.

Now for the proactive 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 on our #NoNothingNov feature on TRP.red. Start tracking your progress by announcing your goals. Discuss how you plan to achieve these goals and what steps you're going to take to ensure that they happen. Track your progress daily with hashtag #NoNothingNov

Make sure you track your progress so others can help keep you accountable. And make sure you help encourage other members. For some people this may be their first foray in taking control of their own lives.

Guys I've stopped drinking for 100 days now.

I'm a changed man.

[–]KarmicPrism20 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fucking yeah, get it boiiii! Much love, from a nigga who only drinks on festive occasions now but used to errday. Changes are a'comin'!

[–]1RevolutionaryPea717 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

Me too, but more like a year by now. It feels great. Alcohol does nothing good for me at all. My health suffers, my game suffers, my dick suffers, my sleep suffers. I could go on.

There's a strong social pressure to drink alcohol but don't worry, nobody really cares if you just drink soft drinks.

It can even open some interesting possibilities because you are still able to drive all night long.

[–]ahackercalled4chan6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

mad props brother!! keep going strong!

[–]enraged_ape7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

Keep at it fam, I’m on my 16th month and never felt better. Month 2-4 were the toughest for me.

[–]espero2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm in the midst of 2-4 now obviously, and I can totally see what you mean.

Quitting alcohol was the best decision I've ever made. Congrats.

Good work brother, im proud of you

[–]espero0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Many thanks for the encouragement and supportive words.

[–]akzunamoon0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

i need to do it too. i keep fighting this drinking life style a couple of years already. actually i need to stop immediately.

[–]espero3 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

I turned 35, kept drinking. Better job. Better colleagues. Just drinking. Drinking. Drinking.

Stopping was literally sobering. I had to take a strong look at what I considered to be what I want with life - my time off during a day and a week.

Everything is better. I don't even know if I want to start back up again.

[–]akzunamoon3 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy

i will turn 33. drinking takes me so much energy. i drink not everyday, but when i drink (beers) almost every time something happens. and not in a good way. i will start to count days from today on. if i manage to get 100 days in a row, i will message you.

[–]espero1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I believe in you. You can do it.

At day 50, feel free to invest in some alcohol free beers :) There are really good ones out there, and they emulate the pleasure to a good extent!

Giving up smoking weed, YouTube, and staying in bed too late

[–]bonusfruit8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

YouTube is tough. I used to think I was enlightened because I never watch TV but I honestly watch/listen to 4+ hours of YouTube a day

[–]alifaraz217 points8 points  (3 children) | Copy

Except for the first one (I dont do it) I am going for the latter two.

so here's mine giving up list,

  1. Youtube (3o mins daily max!)
  2. Staying up too late.
  3. Phone/net addiction. (Characterized by in bed phone usage and idly sitting in front of the pc reddit, youtube etc)

Adding.

  1. Morning aerobic exercise and nerd posture correction

What's with all the hate? I don't do weed ..so its not in the list. Clearly, you guys misunderstood

[–]1TheProphetPhysiquiel5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy

Sounds like you should probably add weed to that list man

[–]throwabcdaway37 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

you should probably understand his comment before writing

[–]alifaraz210 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I meant it's not there because i don't do it. Should've written ( I don't do it.)

[–]YasserZe56 points57 points  (1 child) | Copy

If you chose sugar, get your jollies today because at 11:59pm you're throwing away all your Halloween treats

That doesn't mean you should binge watch porn until midnight then stop for month , don't indulge in your vices

[–]LucidCunning17 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, but today is Halloween specifically. That's all.

[–]Dark_Lord_A49 points50 points  (16 children) | Copy

Weed, porn and video games. I'm done with this shit.

[–]Operator21636 points37 points  (9 children) | Copy

I'll give you my two cents-

Weed - yeah you don't need it. You just will want it for a bit.

Porn - yeah you don't need it. You just will want it for a bit.

Video games - yeah you don't need it. You just will want it for a bit.

The best thing to replace these vices is a good one. I'm going out on a limb and saying you like scifi. Buy the trilogy "The Bobiverse." Amazing recreational read. It will take ~40 hours to read the whole thing. Order them (or another recreational book) and get started.

Any time you want games or weed, sit and read.

You wanna jerk off and watch porn? Go lift. Make virtual pussy real pussy.

[–]lvanden6 points7 points  (6 children) | Copy

The thing with porn, is that if your doing it every night , you have to be honest with yourself and understand that its having an effect on your dopamine receptors and that can sap your motivation for anything. Furthermore, if you can't go a month without it, then thats a major sign that you are addicted, it has a hook on you and anything you say now, is just in defensive of that addiction. Just my two cents.

[–]Operator2164 points5 points  (5 children) | Copy

Very valid. Chemicals in your body are no joke, even if self produced. Ask an adrenaline junky how they feel when they're not doing anything spectacular. It's typically synonymous with depression in 'normal' people.

Self mastery also includes your physical body. Hence why we push all men here to LIFT.

[–]lvanden7 points8 points  (4 children) | Copy

Man i feel you, I've been hitting the gym for the past few months now (got myself a home gym) but this no porn thing is a different beast. I feel sorry for people who do heroin and all that, because the shit I'm doing now is hard I cant imagine what it's like to be addicted to a strong substance such as heroin and trying your best to go through the withdrawals That's crazy!!!

[–]Atheist_Utopia2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Abstaining from porn is super easy once you have the mindset change. You need to think: "isn't real pussy so much better than pixels?"

To me, this was all it took to get rid of the vice.

[–]SergiuIlescu1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

If you feel the need to jerk off, do it before a shower, or alone without any help but your imagination, I feel it's much easier that way instead of watching porn

[–]lvanden0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I just don't jack off anymore, don't see the point.

[–]odaklanan_insan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

well... it can help to relief your balls during the process. Doesn't it?

[–]me_versusme2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I have always had my doubts with weed. I don’t really like it that much bit i feel like i should have some kind of drug in life. I will stop doing it when i have a better alternative.

[–]SharkTeamTrump19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hit the gym, start lifting. Best alternative.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (4 children) | Copy

Fuck Porn and Video Games, and this is coming from a person who wasted massive amounts of time playing the MOBA called DotA. I could have gone pro in my country, but the pay is non existent and the lifestyle is shit. Yeah I have a good MMR but what else do I have to show for spending >5k hours of my life playing this game, nothing.

To think that I could have achieved so much if only I had spend that much time in something productive/income inducing. FUCK video games man, there are other things to do to pass the time which will make you a better person. Living in actual reality is better than living in a virtual reality.

Porn is basically cuckolding yourself. Seeing a muscular hung man fucking the shit out of a hot girl you'd like to fuck. Enough said.

I'd like to stay silent on the topic of weed.

[–]Dark_Lord_A10 points11 points  (2 children) | Copy

The thing is I wasn't even addicted to weed until my brother got out of prison. I would smoke a single joint over 2 or 3 days. He came out, and next thing I know we're smoking 4 or so joints in an hour. I look back over the last year and I'm just horrified by how much money and time I wasted on this shit.

My addiction to porn is just so fucking pathetic I don't even like to think about it.

[–]Lib3rtarianSocialist3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]MarcosDomingues-5 points-4 points  (6 children) | Copy

If by running you mean jogging don't do it, srs. Your body composition will become worse

Take up lifting or sprinting instead

[–]Pegasesus9 points10 points  (3 children) | Copy

Not in moderation, with lifting. Thirty plus miles a week yes. But 5-15 a week is great cardio and will help your gas tank when lifting. My Lifting sessions are much quicker and I'm more defined now that I do kickboxing and short distance runs. Plus all the serious bodybuilders put loads of moderate miles on to keep fat low. Just keep your calories up.

[–]MarcosDomingues-1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy

You can't lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, unless you are a complete beginner, which I assume you are.

[–]Pegasesus8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yeah you can't lose fat and gain muscle at directly the same moment. Yes you body is in either catabolic or anabolic state that is correct. But you don't have to bulk for weeks or months then cut back and forth. You can do both in the same week or even day. More muscle means you have a higher metabolism, better cardio means you have a stronger heart to deliver oxygen to your muscles for quicker repair and better endurance. Used in sync with each other you can have the best body for health and aesthetics.

[–]MarcosDomingues0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Did you even read my original post?? I told him that if he wanted to do cardio, that sprinting would be a way better choice than long distance running

[–]Jake_le_Dog2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

He's right. Endurance exercises right after anaerobic exercises are shown to have detrimental effects on the latter. If you really want to do endurance exercises, you should wait at least a few hours before doing them. But mostly, if you have no intention of competing in long distance sports, choose intensity-like ones.

[–]123undeuxtrois1230 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Cardio is good for heart. Also it will make lifting less taxing.

[–]PetrasN18 points19 points  (1 child) | Copy

Ok, let's do this. I'm giving up: 1) Alcohol 2) Porn 3) YouTube 4) Gaming

And I'll pick up writing at least 500 words each day (probably more, since I'm also doing the Nanowrimo challenge this November, too).

[–]tneer22 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

How'd it go so far brother?

[–]unn4med0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Hey, what’s wrong with eating lots of carbs? (Up to 50% of daily calories)

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

You may not notice up front, but depending on the type of carb and the frequency of which you eat them, it builds insulin resistance.

It can be gradual but it's more pronounced as you age.

[–]ButteredPastry11 points12 points  (2 children) | Copy

Three vices I'm giving up for N3:

  • Beer.

  • Social Media.

  • Porn.

New habit:

  • Working out on Saturday mornings

I'm hoping I can make morning workouts a daily habit, I don't approach at the gym (don't shit where you eat) so I could use that afternoon time (peak gym hours) for something more productive or run errands

[–]mcs0076 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

I love working out on sundays. It gets my week going and there's not a lot of ppl in the gym on Sunday.

You get used to being unproductive at work. I should stop too.

[–]KarmicPrism0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You right tbh. I can see how being unproductive at work, and making unproductive behavior a habit during work hours, will also leech those havioral patterns over to your non working life. The brain doesn't truly care where it's at, it cares about repeating patterns of behavior.

[–]Just_Isaak6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

I did sober October, I gave up cigarettes, weed and alcohol for 31 days.

For N3 it’s gonna be

Porn

Sleeping in

Procrastination

These 3 things kill me inside.

I wanna talk to women, write more, and start working as much as I used too. It sounds very general so I’ll get down to the details.

Work out: bare minimum of 200 push ups a day, 2 miles

Women: flirt, get a number, and start something other than a generic “how’s your day” sort of conversation.

Writing: start up the self authoring program again. Write down daily goals, monthly goals and long term goals

I might burn the fuck out but fuck it. It takes more than just one thing to make yourself successful. I need a boost.

[–]UnbreakableFrame5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

I've already been working on giving up stuff with TRP, but I'll add a few to the mix.

  1. No jerkin' it.
  2. No coffee.
  3. No Netflix.

I will read one article, watch one video, or read a chapter of one book per day for the career I'm trying to transition to.

*Edit 11/7 - So far so good. The coffee has been the hardest part by far, but I'm still hangin' in there.

[–]Newmando4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

My three vices.

Porn. Sugar free energy drinks. Shit food and sugar. (Limited only to meals out)

[–]randomTATRP2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Why not eliminate meals out totally?

Go prep your food, that can be the good habit :))

[–]Newmando3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I already prep food and eat very good. The only time I indulge is either eating out. However as of lately been doing a bit too much self indulging.

[–]kril893 points4 points  (5 children) | Copy

https://www.trp.red/nnn/kril89

1-Give up Porn/Masturbation (No Nut November)

2- Stop computer/TV after 9pm

3- No Cheat meals all month (snacks are okay)

What am I going to add 1- read a book for 30-60 mins every night before bed

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

What am I going to add 1- read a book for 30-60 mins every night before bed

Reading before bed is such a relaxing activity. I find I fall asleep pretty quickly vs watching tv, which can sometimes result in staying up an extra hour or so.

[–]kril890 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Yup, I always fall out of it because I'm not the best reader (always have had a reading learning disability aka slow reader haha) but right now I'm reading "No more Mr Nice Guy" idk what to read next any suggestions?

Doesn't matter what you read, just make sure you're actually applying and making practical changes in your daily life based on what you learn.

Daily workout and >3500 calories.

Porn / lust

Coffee / gluttony

Out of bed by 6am / sloth

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

I've written a list and will be taking part in this but I'd like to mention a difficulty I've faced in my attempts at self improvement that I think others are facing too.

When you cut vices (porn, alcohol, excessive gaming) you free up all the time and energy that was once devoted to these things. Initially this feels great but as time goes by this excess energy turns to discomfort and boredom and you eventually turn back on to your old habits. The obvious answer is that you need to find more productive substitutes for this energy which is true and I wouldn't be saying anything new in making that point.

Still though it's unlikely that you'll find yourself sucked into these things with the same power as those years entrenched habits (unlikely but it does happen), with most truly worthwhile things there's an uphill battle initially until you come to grips with it and so until that point it's just pain on pain and your comfort zone looks twice as attractive.

My suggestion (for myself firstly but also for anyone who relates to this) is to focus on building the positive habits only and you'll be forced to give up the bad ones slowly. To relate this to something tangible I'll describe an experience I only recently became aware of, when I pick up a good book and get sucked in to the story I suddenly find myself being unable to make time for my other usual habits that take up the same mental space (especially gaming), the fact that I'm in the middle of reading right now makes it easy to rationalise away the desire for other things (and vice versa if I'm sucked into a game) and I'll stop doing them without even thinking about it.

Rather than viewing these good habits as substitutes we should just take them on along with the bad and after some time we will feel overloaded and be forced to make a choice. Sometimes it can go both ways and you can fall backwards but at least you will have had a bit of time to build up your good habits instead of going cold turkey and then trying to start.

My three vices will be heroin, crack and sleeping in (I am aware one of these is not like the others). My daily habit will be meditation. I am already five days in to meditating daily & not indulging in the other three, so I'm going to extend it through November (then hopefully forever).

Pick up - 1. Gym regularly

[–]Lifteador1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

  • Procastination
  • Porn & masturbation
  • Video Games

These 3 are the ones that keep me from succeed, everytime I want/have to do something productive I end doing one of these and I'm going nowhere. I want to become disciplined and stop wasting my time

The new habit I'm going to take is reading everyday for 1 hour

Ok, So I'm not sure if I have to quit anything. But I want to introduce new habits. I'll start with Running and cleaning my room everyday. Good Luck to me.

No drinking weekdays.

No porn

Stop wasting time. Be productive when your not doing anything.

Start: running three days a week on top of lifting 3 days a week.

[–]howdoistopobsessing0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm going to abstain from PMO, limit unproductive internet use by using the Pomodoro technique and stop eating added sugar. Everyday I'll either run two miles or go to the gym, or both.

I’ll be giving up: checking Reddit besides TRP, taking my phone to bed, sugar & carbs.

May also take another habit but I have no ideas

[–]CSquaredRP0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Giving up sweets alcohol & tobacco.

Reading at least 1 Chapter per night

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

This will be fun again! The usual: restrict alchol & smoking to only weekend events, social media and games allowed only between 22-10am, no porn, less sugar. Meditate, read, study, lift and sleep enough. This time skipping drawing, it is fun, but not a priority right now and can easily suck toi much time from other activities if not timed, maybe keep it as reward for the good days.

Can do for month, physical part is irritiating but doable, the real challenge is to fill the void left by cutting out the forums, facebook etc. My routines are isolated, so finding poeple to have good chats with is something to work on.

Thing to pay attention to: meditation has been the first habit to break and rest will slowly crumble after that. Do not break that.

[–]vullnet1230 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Trying to workout 5x a week, been very inconsistent

Three things I'm trying to get rid of are laying in bed/sleeping all day, deleting Instagram/twitter(beta tendencies with my ex), and my negative attitude I have about myself from my past relationship.

Picking up: purchasing with a purpose - the vices listed above put holes in my finances every check. Everything that I make a purchase from now on, must contribute to my goal in some way.

  • No more drinking more than one after-lunch espresso and one pre-workout espresso.

And I'll answer one stackoverflow question every day(or at least try for about 15 minutes).

coffee and masturbation ( I don't wach porn). any oder sugestion for another vice?

[–]new24-50 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Video games, watching too much tv shows, craving love and affection.

I want to get my driving license,pay attention to my grades and go to the gym 3 days a week

[–]ElectricKid20200 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

giving up porn, sleeping in, not being focused

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

Giving up Social media & Email checking except at noon & 4pm for 10mins or less. \*

* Except one reddit check per day during a brief lunch break window to gain TRP & financial independence knowledge. I still need some tips here & there.

Quit added sugar for good\*

*I already keep it super low(under 20g per day) but I admit I binged on Halloween.

To keep YouTube under 45m per day & only watch educational/learning content. (not including music streaming)

  • Thanks to the new screen time app on iOS it makes it really easy to determine how much time I lose.

Challenge to try:

Meditate for 30 days straight and sit for at least 10 mins before getting up to do something else.

I'm also doing NanoWriMo which where you try to write a novel in a month, been wanting to do it for a few years now..

(obviously just a first draft and won't be that polished)

If anyone wants to keep track of that with me I welcome a PM and read each others finished novels at the end of the month.

[–]TheGreatMrJones0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

2 cigarettes a day will Not work you have to go cold Turkey. I am on day 11

[–]bakachelera0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'll give up staying up late. I don't smoke since from a month ago and I don't deem alcohol a thing I should completely get rid of, for now at least... So I don't have any other vice I think. I'll start practicing art daily.

[–]onehardtard0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Gave in to 2 of these things today so I’m starting a day late. But I’m going to give up:

Porn Smoking Cigs Video Games

Considering Picking up Jogging in the mornings.

[–]TotalEklipse0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Social media, drinking, paying lip service to my mission

[–]CastleOfAnibal0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

  1. Mindless internet; includes facebook, porn, instagram, youtube, and snapchat.
  2. Stop staying up to late.
  3. Stop eating out and prepare meals

Pick up working out at least three times a week.

Don't bite off more than you can chew. My advice would be to pick out the most important off this list and just focus on 2-3 vices and 1-2 better habits to replace those vices. I know you just want to become the best version of yourself but you'll just get overwhelmed really quick and relapse/quit.

[–]alt_account_60 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Stopping: Uncertainty about finances (keeping track of where money and spending is) Passivity in dating (actually get around to using okcupid or similar) Wasteful habits (not collecting money, eating out more than 5 meals a week)

Adding: 1 physical activity per week. Doesn't matter what it is

I'll start counting today!

[–]dingleburry_joe0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Starting today I'm giving up porn/fap, video games, and coffe

I had done this for 5 months and fell off the horse in August. I was definitly a changed man and now seeing the shitty effects come back. Gonna pick up meditation to clear my fucking head everyday, picking up guitar and vocal lessons and drinking tea instead of coffee. These daily habits in my life are bringing it to ruin and the main source of me losing focus on frame in my LTR.

It starts now!

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

1.Going to bed late

  1. Porn

  2. Social media/dating apps

  3. Not completing/attempting my daily check list.

I chose 4 because I only wank/ watch porn a couple times a week, and social media has been reduced a lot already but it’s still an issue.

  1. I will achieve this bullet by getting up at 4-5 am everyday, and busting ass all day so I’m tired by night.

  2. Instead of watching porn I will put some child blocks on, and read one of the 30 fucking books I want to read to better myself.

  3. See 2

  4. This is tough. I’d like to think reminders on my devices would be enough, but years of trying has desensitized me to them. So idk how other then Ima try.

I wanted to put weed up here but I can’t quit that just today. Gonna use it to achieve #1 if I need to and reduce it to after completing my checklist after work.

[–]Ekhochambeer0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Porn, wanking and youtube. Habit - practicing guitar everyday

[–]Flynn-Lives0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Vices:

  1. No sleeping in past 10am (even though I have a flexible work schedule)
  2. No binge drinking (no more than 5 drinks in a sitting)
  3. No watching tv for more than 1 hour a day

Postive:

  1. 1 hour a night of productive activity related to future job applications

[–]riggedved0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I think moderation is key here.

I do play video games, but for maybe like 3-4 hours a week. I play after a hard days work, if I do have the energy for it.

Weed: I smoke maybe 1-2 times a week. I was addicted to weed before, smoking daily. But now that it is under control and in moderation, I actually enjoy the benefits of weeds in moderation.

[–]ravenpuk0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ok guys, its ON!

This november i'm giving up on:

•Porn/masturbation •Cigarettes •Snacks(everything thati didn't cooked myself for a healthy meal) •Netflix(and the like) •Getting drunk

Productive daily replacements: meditation and reading a book

[–]1Ill_Will70 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The big 3 vices. That we would all be better without.

  1. Alcohol (binge drinking til the sun rises)

  2. Cigarettes (accompanies the drinking)

  3. Porn/jerkin it (In the morning to feel better through the hangover)

Positive activity(s) to start.

  1. Read before bed, instead of reddit/tv til 3am

  2. Put in 1 job application everyday

[–]Charbenew0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

- No video games (uninstalling everything as we speak)

- No more music (deleting spotify, informative/redpill Podcast + Audiobooks only)

- No more nail biting XD

- I have already just barely dipped my feet in the water but im ready to dive into photography, I don't care what it is, everyday just take pictures, photoshop editing, or just read books on it.

-Also not to add to daily activities but I've been getting lazy with my reading and skipping some days, need to get that shit under control.

[–]Tsunull0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Damn, this is just the kick in the ass I needed to stop going at my goals so half heartedly. Vices: Staying in bed, keeping a fucked up diet, and cigarettes Gainz: Going to the fuckin gym

[–]Yujiok0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I am a day or two late but here are 3 things I want to make a habit of stopping. 1)porn 2)chocolate (main sugar intake) 3) laziness Giving it up to read some more, meditate, and go to gym, get my first stripe this month hopefully.

[–]BarnabyBear0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

My 3 vices:

1) No Nut November 2) Sleeping in late 3) Browsing youtube/reddit/news site

One Habit:

1) Practice Chinese for a minimum of 1 hour everyday

[–]Stanleyyelnets0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Giving up refined carbs, and drinking alcohol.

I found as I quit drinking alcohol I just started becoming aware of the times I let junk food get into my body. Whether it be from being drunk and craving junk, or the day after craving grease to feel better. I also found that as I get better, I don't feel as tired and out of it. Which helps my awareness to what I do and don't do.

I want to counter this by continuing to exercise more frequently, eat healthier diet (more fruits and veggies) and to do stand up.

[–]1RevolutionaryPea70 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

After several years of TRP and actually doing challenges like this I have very few things left to give up. I've already given up alcohol/drugs, reddit (I only use TRP now), I fast for 16-20 hours every single day etc. These challenges do work.

There are really only two things that I need to completely give up now:

  • Porn. This is really bad for my sexual performance. Masturbating once a week or so is OK. But I should be busting my nuts inside women.
  • Commenting online and wasting time with feminists/manginas/cucks. I've got into the habit of posting comments on a well-known tech forum but constantly get banned when I post my thoughts about feminist issues. It's simply a waste of my time. Also I should only be spending time with red pill men IRL.

On the positive side I really need to approach more women and increase the size of my network. I maintain one low-maintenance plate at the moment, but ideally I'd have 2-3 on the go. I will be dedicating some of my time to socialising and making a habit of approaching hot women.

[–]Shankar_0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

1) Giving up porn and masturbation 2) Giving up wasting time on YouTube 3) Giving up wasting time on social media

Replacing with hitting gym at least three times a week and daily meditation in some form

[–]trpblacklime0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]Usziel0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]Jacuuli0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm late, but I'm giving up: porn, social media, and junk food. I will start working out every day and study more for technical interviews for software engineering positions.

[–]1AlfredKinsey0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm going with TV, Pot, and Skateboarding. All of them are pretty big time sinks.

[–]iomataani0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

For me is starting judo again and hitting the gym more. Last but not least, getting my language certification in december, so, more studying. And get in the bed before 11 PM.

[–]ht2k90 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Right now I am good, Learning to play guitar and using YouTube for education, can't say I can give up doing vices really. I do gaming 5 hours a week but only to socialize with my many freinds and family.

[–]xMB99[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Wish I saw this sooner or I might have gone more than a day! But I would say jerking off, playing video games, and drinking coffee.

[–]my_mix_still_sucks0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Alright I needed an excuse to do this anyways so here we go. Giving up: Porn Reddit Phone in bed

New habit: Meditation

[–]cenie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This is late and I'm doing it differently, but stopping porn and picking up: waking up earlier, reading more, and getting back into working out.

I'm keeping my beer.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This is probably a good reason to quit.

[–]inittowinit7770 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

3 things I'm giving up:

(i) Smoking weed (throw away rolling papers/tips, be aware of cravings and replace them - drink a glass of water every time a craving arises)

(ii) No electronics 90 mins before bed (force myself to switch off laptop and put phone into airplane mode)

(iii) Limit internet usage (included social media, Reddit, reading news articles & blog posts, etc.) to 3 hrs/day (right now it's way more than that). I will do this by installing apps to track my daily internet usage.

1 daily routine I'm adding:

Learning about, and utilizing, principles of time management and beating procrastination. Will read books, articles and blog posts on the topic (limit 45 mins/day)

[–]srinath330 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Starting late, but I will still go on by giving up these three vices for a month:

1) Youtube: Max 30 minutes a day

2) Porn: No more!

3) Instagram - Uninstall in progress..

The new chore:

Wake up every day before 6:30 AM.

[–]srinath330 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Update: failed the new chore. Have not used YouTube, insta or watched porn. I am adding Reddit and Facebook to the list of vices.

[–]Bad_nuggets690 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Late Response, so I'm running this through the end of the year

Habits i'm kicking:

1) PMO

2) Video Games

3) Reddit/Youtube (Outside of TRP - re-reading sidebar and higher level posts)

Habits I'm Starting:

1) Hygene and hair trimming routine

2) New gym routine

3) Dedicating time to own business

Reward Appatus:

1) Learning Thai, Portuguese, and Guitar to travel and add SMV.

2) Will allow myself to splurge on a sports car rather than commuter car.

3) New found meaning in my existing career as I siphon knowledge from it.

4) Lasic eye surgery and dentist performed teeth whitening.

Building tracking system to hold myself accountable: small item that I thought merited noting - starting my weeks on Saturday, so Saturday through Friday, instead of the Monday through Sunday. Mental shift to use the "weekend" as the kickstart of my week, rather than the reward at the end.

Unfollow all the instathot accounts then. Or if you can’t do that idk block them as you see them.

Yeah do that. Block them. That’s you having a victory over your lust every time it pops up. Maybe even yell “BEGONE, THOT!” when you do it as a reward.

But that can be worked around, having thots on your instagram
