    With fapping at least you still acknowledge your problems. Smoking weed you don't care. I literally quit a job where I was making substantial income and didnt even care cause i was too high to care about my future. Holy shit was that a huge mistake and I didnt realize it until I quit weed a year later. I think both will impact you negatively in life and that to really be human one needs to cut out all drugs/porn form their life. I won't even drink alcohol anymore.
     
  2. Weed isn’t good for you but I’d say pmo is worse than weed. Pmo fucked me up way more. With weed I could/can actually get shit done. When I was a pmo addict I was afraid of the world paralyzed by anxiety.
     
  3. I saw a guy loose teeth trying to stop a car with them while high. His mates tried to stop him but he thought he was really a top notch strongman.

    Alcohol was by FAR the worst for me of anything, but I think the take away is that it's all bad and we would be wise to try and live without any of it, or at least as little as possible. Alcohol tore my family apart.
     
  5. Weed is garbage. I stopped for a few months and got back on it because where I live you can buy it anywhere. I feel groggy in the mornings again and my thinking is not very sharp. Its hard to stop because when I feel good and clear I want to smoke and the cycle continues. I used to love it because I thought it gave me some insight into myself, maybe it did, I don't know what my life would be like if I had never used it, but now it's the opposite. For me, sobriety is freedom.

    I fully support anyone who wants to lead a life free of anything that causes them problems - but I will say that cannabis is a positive thing in my life. I consume it maybe 5-6 times a month and it allows me to reset my perspective, become introspective, and step out of my habitual mind state to analyze my life. I've noticed it's particularly good at allowing me to see how I may be treating the people around me unfairly or unkindly. Not trying to convince anyone to use marijuana or anything - but in my opinion porn is all bad and marijuana can be a quite a good thing if used consciously.

    5 or 6 times a month is probably fine. if your using daily though i can attest to low feelings of self esteem and accomplishments. i was addicted at a young age when my mother died and i felt lonely. little did i know it would make my problems worse than what it was, even leading me to jacking off multiple times in a day. anyways i agree that a life free of addiction is good to be supportive about.

    Theres an old saying I heard from a hippie once "Weeds for people that have already found the path in life, not for those still searching".

    Everyone is entitiled to experiment and enjoy the folly of youth but their comes a time when you gotta leave that shit behind.

    Once weed becomes a daily habbit it can really mess peoples heads up. I've seen it rob people of all ambition and motivation, slowly destorying their life as a result.

    Weed is something to be enjoyed later in life once you have achieved what you set out to achieve. Not while your young and need all your drive and enegry to work towards building a life.

    Anything that Hijacks out reward system is garbage. It leads to a false feeling of being satisfied when have done nothing to achieve it. This leads to an empty life of nothingness.

    That's the point my friend.
    Cannabis is not better than PMO.
    But neither is worse.
    The more you are addicted, the more you will find that thing the worst.
    Like you, I was smoking weed and doing too much PMO.
    More PMO than weed.
    If you ask me, in my life, PMO 1000x worse than weed.
    Because I was addicted to the former, I was just a consumer of the latter.
    Everything you're addicted to is bad.
    A girl I know, she's suffering from anorexia.
    Because she became addicted to running, and she started to want to be thiner and thiner to run faster.
    Now her life is ruined too.
    It is never the substance itself.
    It is always the addiction.

    Alcohol, nicotine, porn, coffee, sugar, ANYTHING that effects dopamine will fuck up your game if you want to get ahead. I dare you to call my bluff, but I really hope you don't.

    Excess sugar maybe. Nothing wrong with a sweet here and there and natural sugars found in fruits. Also 99% of the world relies on coffee. I get what you're saying though.

    For me weed is probably one of the only things keeping me going. I'm on an involuntary t break right now though.

    weed spikes your dopamine a lot higher, makes mental problems a lot more worse, and also makes masturbating much more likely. for me smoking weed 2x my rate of masturbating to porn. the sad thing is I used to be one of those guys that was against it during HS and now that I smoked it my life has been a tragedy.

    For me I feel less likely to masturbate. Depends on how high I get and the strain and how I was feeling before though.

    Quit making excuses and man up. You're putting blame on a recreational drug, yet these are your problems...

    True. But couldn't you say the same about masturbation?
