    I can't began to tell you how vital this is for self improvement. People that continuously talk about porn/drugs will bring you down. Eliminate them all if you want to improve your mental and physical health. I am suffering due to cancerous friends I let in my life and my own actions. Good people are around if you let them in.

    How should we eliminate them? With a pistol?

    I agree with you.

    Out of curiosity, could you give me some qualities which would act as definitive identifiers of "bad" friends?

    Thanks ^^

  7. We all know who we need to dump. It's hardly a mystery.

    Someone who neglects how you feel. Someone who pushes you to do things you don't want to do. Someone who insults you for feeling or thinking a certain way. Someone who uses you for their own personal gain.

    I was a victim of a friend like this for 10 years.

    It was my fault for not being strong willed, but it sucks I didn't have any good friends in my life either.

  9. Hi A Higher Truth, you are quite right. In order to break our addiction to PMO we must eliminate friends who talk about porn/drugs.
    They are sure to bring us down with their soul destroying talk. The Bible says if your hand should cause you to sin, then cut it off. I do not advocate such a draconian step. However I do strongly agree with cutting off dangerous friends.

    Not through violence. But, by cutting ties with them. Nothing is more important than abstaining from PMO addiction. We must all be prepared to do what it takes to do so!

    That's why I have let such shallow and hollow people walking out from my life a long time ago. One of the main reasons as to why I could never socialize with my former working-colleagues outside of work was mostly due to their limited thinking and openness about politically incorrect subjects. Many of them were petty-minded and had huge egos as well so talking personal development/self-improvement with them proved to be an impossibility. They always claimed this, this and that were all outside of their own control and reach.
    These people never dared thinking outside the box, nevertheless themselves since their level of secularisation was so overwhelming that they only lived in the earthly world, never wanting to acknowledge someone or something bigger than themselves or their physical body.
    Hence, there were never any
     
  11. Maybe you should try to improve them and/or tell them how you feel about them, but ditch them if they aren't willing to change and are really impacting you. I'm sort of going through this at the moment with my friends. They're fun guys, but due to their laziness and negativity, I feel like they're bringing me down.

    Depending on the distance you can use a shotgun, an assault rifle or a sniper rifle.
    You can't really change others.

    It is better to be alone than in bad company. Sadly for many of us this is easier said than done.

    Could you explain what you mean by this please? What is it that is so unbearable about solitude?

    It's not that it is unbearable. Rather, it can be hard to let go of friends. Even if they are toxic, on some level you probably still care about them. Otherwise they wouldn't be your friends. That is how I see it at least.
