Until I recently joined this forum and abstained from porn (but not masturbation) for the last three days, I had been locked into a vicious cycle after losing my job two weeks ago. I would make plans to do things, then I would end up spending most of the day eating, watching YouTube videos, and jerking off to porn. But now, I not only have no interest in porn, but I don't have any interest in watching YouTube videos. And I don't have any interest in social media. I don't even have an interest in self-help videos because there's so many, and they just add to the confusion. I really just want to cut myself off from the internet as much as possible, isolate myself from hearing about the rest of the world so much, it really just makes me feel overwhelmed, left out, and far behind in life, and makes me feel vengeful. The only catch is, I still need the internet to, well, socialize on here, to build a social life via online games, and continue my Computer Science studies and practices. So, I just want to know, where do I go from here? From what I can tell, eating only one meal a day, cycling until I lose enough weight to start doing calisthenics is a good move, self-authoring, writing, coding, and meditating are all good starts, but it's almost like I have a whole mental complex that I need to remove that makes doing anything feel like walking through quicksand. How do I reset my mind completely? How do I teach myself to control my awareness and re-tool my mind? It's overwhelming. Also, a video once told me that wealthy and successful people are wealthy and successful because they create things for people, instead of selling themselves for someone else. So what I am trying to decide, is how does programming, cybersecurity, and robotics play into a nomadic lifestyle? My desire to write songs and stories, and learn how to play the guitar, that's obvious. But my CS pursuits?
