    Never thought much about it til now, but since I´m blocking youtube for how it enslaves me, I think I should come face to face with the fact I also overpost a lot (to the point I disabled notifications on my youtube posts years ago btw).

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Nobody in my life will take me seriously, I dont even privately talk about Nofap, I know for a fact my Mother and Aunt know I fap, but they keep their mouths shut about it without even bringing it up for conversation once, on top of that I have a lil sis on the house so there´s a lot of enablement to keep my mouth shut and fix myself by myself.

    I think seeing the mistakes of my parents is also leading me down the road of minimalism and investing, but I kinda realized this recently, I can have some investing talks with my mom, but she doesnt get cryptos and mutual fund investing.

    @ThePeakWae Familiar story. I'm the same with programming. Which why I often used to participate in Zero To Mastery Discord forum talking about programming. Maybe it would be a good idea to find a forum about your investments. I would suggest The Graham Stephan Show, discord group. You can find a link in his youtube video description.

    @ThePeakWae Personally I don't have anything on mutual funds. I just saw that on The Graham Stephan Show discord group people talk about investing. Regarding Zero To Mastery. It's a discord forum for developers, designers, ethical hackers, not investing. Also important to note to join up you need to either buy one of the udemy courses or enroll in ZeroToMastery academy. The first option is a lot cheaper.

    I dont think I´ll fit in well then, I suck at all those except maybe a little bit on developping, case I played a little with Atom.

    Not sure I can trust Graham too much either, one of his recent bank vids, Showcases Casino like mechanics, I dont know if it´s "legit" get it? I used to think In a Nutshell was legit too, but then drama with Coffee Break started and I loss faith, I think I may have binge watched too much to begin, had I not binge watched so many channels I´d probably have a more open mind to future content, so I´ll have to fix this long term.

    @ThePeakWae Well that's for you to decide. My advice if you interested in web development, programming, design, ethical hacking. Even if it's just for a hobby you could try it out. Maybe it will fix your current problem with loneliness since you would have someone to talk to. The forum currently has 159k members. Also, don't worry about being bad at programming a lot of beginners join the forum.

    Alternatively, you can find a forum to talk about investing.

    Well there´s dave ramsey stuff, but It wont help me if I dont fix my youtube addiction first case I know for a fact those kinds of forums are going to have youtube vid links somewhere.

    @ThePeakWae That's true. Youtube addiction is a tough one. Some block youtube altogether others like me use extensions that block recommendations only. I use DF Tube chrome extension. It basically allows you to hide recommendations and side videos.

    btw is it true that Netflix and youtube have a lot of content with subliminal messages? (I´ve seen a few noticeable subliminal messages in certain vids sometimes and I pause to check what the quickly showed content is), If thats so, I´m reducing my Netflix media consumption.

    @ThePeakWae I don't know about subliminal messages. Personally, I doubt it since they don't control the media. Youtube shows videos that somebody else uploaded thumbnails are also added by the uploader. Netflix shows movies. However, what they do well is use machine learning to make sure that you couldn't stop watching. Basically, machine learning is an artificial intelligence that improves automatically through experience. So based on what videos do you watch, when did you click pause, how long did you watch. Artificial intelligence tries to recommend more and more similar videos in order to keep your attention longer. Netflix does a similar thing on a smaller scale. Which is why it can be hard to stop watching youtube.

    Interesting video about it:


    From what I understood specific company ads are more likely to use subliminal messages since they control the actual content.

    Let's talk money is a good channel for stocks, Vladimir Ribakov for forex, although you have to pay for the content, Bitcoin is ... very speculative but made 2k off it so I'm fine. And P2P lending is good for 12% yearly returns but if uvare from Europe, don't know other markets if p2p is good. I feel you about the overposting, we all come in here caise of loneliness. I thik out goal shoild be to find someone irl that's going to be good company. friend or mate.

    There’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, you are just curious and like to share or explore lots of topics. I guess if you really wanted to cut down your posting, and basically the Internet, find more stuff to read?

    I´ve good news and bad news.

    Good news is that I´m managing to find ways to avoid overposting, bad news is that I still often relapse to Youtube from time to time, I´ve decided I have to fix my Weekly manga release reading addiction, anime´s fine, but being constantly checking out for weekly stuff is wasting too much of my time.

    Manganelo has been proving to be a disasterous vice on this, I´ve also found out they dont even keep a differential between Eichi and Hentai manga (and their latest manga releases are a fap trap if I dont watch out), so I had to add the website to Site blocker, too many temptations, I´m taking my nofap to the next level.

    I´m trying to establish a 1 hour Youtube watching Rule for myself, only, due to the constant Youtube relapses, I´m failing to keep that vice in check.

    Also taking steps to mark to "Unwatch" certain threads in here, I no longer feel a need to keep a track on.

    It’s cool huh? The awareness to try to discipline ourselves and the arduous quest it can be. I went full monk one time for a month (no media with explicit content, no content that wasn’t productive or educational.) I learned some things about me then that I continue to this day. As will you with your own discipline adventure.

    Are you sure it's a problem, it depends less on the quantity of parts and not on the quality not in terms of being great pride but being honest and open. What I mean is I could imagine someone who really wants recovery and us willing to listen to and enact ideas that will help with that posting a lot honestly about their difficulties from a perspective of "how do I let go of this, and this, and this"
    But maybe there is such thing as too much, I really liked the advice I saw above of "talk to someone". I had resistance to that idea at first, and then when I started talking to sober addicts grub that protective I mentioned of "here a problem I have tell me what you do to solve it and I'll do that" and then doing what they said that made a huge difference in my life.

    I'm also reminded of an analogy I heard, if I had a friend who told me they wanted to lose weight and I said oh I do to so I've been running for just twenty minutes each day why don't you join me and they said well I don't want to get sweaty and I have some other suggestion and they had a reason they couldn't do that I would start to think they didn't really want to lose weight.

    Pretty much part of my problem, you just dont fix a problem in a day, even in regards to Nofap I still have to steel myself to not reset everything up, It´s the base of my reform, I can guarantee you I´m making changes and taking things seriously (wouldnt have blocked +100 sites if I didnt).

    And when I mean it as a problem, I mean it as a poor waste of my time, problem, I could be setting up investments but I´m being walled by bad habits meant to keep the middle class screwed and the rich, richer, thats how they own you.
