    I really believe that reddit is totally full of garbages disguised as free infomation, not to mention the NSFW parts that you can access easily.
    Yesterday when I was browsing around reddit suddenly I realize how wasteful my habit was.
    That's it. I am deactivating my reddit and I want to choose another forums that can give me benefits such as this nofap forum.
     
  2. Never liked reddit. Most of the users I encountered are/were toxic to varying degrees.

    Reddit is not only one of the most toxic places on the internet, it is also full of bots/shills and propaganda. I don't think I have ever been to any more propagandized website ever!

    Reddit is one of the worst websites in existence. It had somehow managed to be both trashier and stricter than 4chan. Then, it encourages rather than discourages low-IQ viewpoints. It’s a mess. I keep Reddit blacklisted along with all those other sites but it is by far the worst. It sucks because if there is an actually good link, Reddit has gone through increasing measures to make you download their app, but it is by and away the worst web community and I just can’t do it.
     
  6. Reddit is full of downvoters. The downvote system is so cancerous and it never ends.

  7. Reddit is horribly toxic because it’s anonymous. Anonymity allows people to be rude online because there is a lack of eye contact, facial expressions, and accountability.

    All social media sites are a waste of time. YouTube, however, can be productive and you can disable the comments with an extension.
     
  8. All popular social media is lowkey 99.9% artificial and controlled, operating with the purpose of commodifying human interaction and modifying human behavior.

    Reddit in particular is the breeding ground of the weirdest people on Earth. Even the way they talk is weird. It's like walking into some weird role-playing cult full of pre-pubescent cosplayers. Everytime I happen to be creeping on that site I can only imagine its userbase is filled with the worst of worst freaks and geeks— the types that fill up those shameless TikTok cringe compilations.

    For the NSFW part what I do is to use appolo. The NSFW subs are blocked on my profile but you can't change it from the app. I never used it for a relapse.
    But I set a daily limit of an hour of reddit. Because I noticed that I get stressed if I use it too much.

    You could argue that this website act as a social media and is anonymous.
     
  13. I just deleted my second account yesterday and I am not considering going back ever again. It still isn't about karma but damn, these fucking downvotes annoyed the fuck out of me.

    Tried it for one week.
    Time consuming and sexual triggers everywhere.
    People are all interested in pleasures these days.

    Uninstalled it.
    Freedom.

    This always get me off Reddit quickly: take the last argument you last witnessed breaking out. It probably was whether or not women could have penises and impregnate men with them, whether it’s racist to claim someone was morally inferior because of their skin color, or whether or not America’s involvement in World War 2 happened. These are actually common debates I see.

    Unless you surround yourself with absolutely idiotic stooges, just reading these aloud to yourself should make you feel stupid, no matter what side of the argument you’re on. Did Bill Nye look smarter when he debated Young Earth Creationists on whether the moon produced its own light? He did not. He looked like an idiot.

    Don’t be an idiot.
     
  16. There’s also shadow accounts that dislike YouTube videos. So the toxic negativity doesn’t just restrict to reddit. It’s a social media problem. The YouTube TV app doesn’t seem to have this problem, however. But reddit is absolutely atrocious. I got a lot of “living with my parents, doing drugs I bought on the internet, left wing, pro porn” vibes on there. Best to avoid it.

    Reddit is a pornsite. I blocked it.

    However, I miss the Sopranos subreddit. Had some really good laughs with all the quotes.

    Reddit like most social medias has a clear narrative and are inundated with sapless, phone-addicted drones that post for validation. Porn is easily accessible as well.

    The porn corners in reddit is the dangerous part for us who commit to quit the addiction. I hate to see the fact that if you have access to reddit, you will also have access to NSFW subreddits. This makes Reddit to be categorized as Mixed Website in many porn filtering software solution.
    If you set CleanBrowsing DNS on your router or computer network setting, it will block you from accessing reddit because it is categorized as Mixed Content: A content that is normally fine but can contain porn in it.

    I don't like to use Reddit and have been away for a while. The amount of hive minds in there is alarming. You will get downvoted to oblivion if you are different or have opinions that against whatever subreddit you are following to.

    Reddit is also promoting addiction with its gold and coin system, much more like what you see in candy crush. It is designed to make you spend more time on that website by giving you fake rewards.

    And Reddit is purposely makes it difficult for you to quit or delete your account because when you decide to nuke it, all of your posts and comments won't be deleted automatically. You have to delete them one by one. I don't know why the developers made it like a huge chores just to delete your account.

    Because of these reasons and many more, I decided to block it by blacklisting the website URL on my Ublock origin. I can still access it but at least I will remember why I block it in the first place.

    Since I quit reddit, I often visit this forum. I think nofap forum is a healthy community and promote healthy group discussion, unlike reddit which is full of karma diggers and self proclaiming experts on anything
