  2. Do what you want to do
    Do what you want to do
    Do what you want to do
    Don't let them run you

    Do what you want to do
    Do what you want to do
    Do what you want to do
    Don't let them run you

    It doesn't matter what they say
    I won't accept it in any single way an ah!
    Through the floors an ah!
    Through the cabling
    They're permeating in through every single day

    But I won't be confined by their regimented boarders
    We've got the strength of over 50,000 souljah's
    And we're not duty bound to anybody's orders
    Come on everybody now
    Don't let them run you

    What you wanna do
    What you wanna do
    What you wanna do
    Don't let them run you

    What you wanna do
    What you wanna do
    What you wanna do
    Don't let them run you

    Do what you want to do
    Do what you want to do
    Do what you want to do
    Don't let them run you
    (*Scream)Don't let them run you

    (*Clean)Don't let them run you

    They're gonna take it all away
    This is a war and the enemies engaging
    But you can see through their lies and decide for your life

    But I won't be confined by their regimented boarders
    We've got the strength of over 50,000 souljah's
    And we're not duty bound to anybody's orders
    Come on everybody now
    Don't let them run you!

    Want to improve your workouts? Like listening to music to energize you (way better than putting crap supplements in your body) and take your training to new heights?

    Check out some of the music here if you aren't familiar with it, Celldweller and Blue Stahli helped me crush it during many a strength and cardio session,

    The outer is always the shadow and form of the inner; the present is the fullness of the past, and the herald of the future.
    —Protap Chunder Mozoomdar

    Every right action and true thought sets the seal of its beauty on person and face.
    —Ruskin

    Exercise the mind with contemplation and the body with action and so preserve the health of both.
    —Confucius

    From Charles Brodie Patterson's The Will To Be Well:

    Sometimes we are inclined to think that thought is the very highest function of our being. Then we lay great stress on the intellectual side of thinking, and declare that reason is the one supreme fact. But there is something more than reason in the life of man—something more than thought; there is something that produces thought and transcends it.

    Every thought contains a picture. We get an idea, a picture, that corresponds to something definite in the outer world. So there is an element that brings the thinker in touch with the highest. The inner mind is passive. This inner presence makes for faith, happiness, and love—the qualities of soul that cannot be pictured by the mind and that alone can fill the life of man. These different elements give color and tone to every thought, and extend to all external things, which thus take on new coloring and new beauty. Because of the inner beauty of thought we recognize beauty in the outer world; for only what one sees interiorly is visible in the external realm. If we have gloom and distress in our minds we are related to the gloomy and distressful things in the outer world. If we have brightness and hope within us, then we see these blessings externalized.

    The outer world is a picture of the inner world. If our thoughts are neither strong, happy, nor wholesome we cannot expect to express health and strength in the body. It is only by entertaining the best and strongest thoughts that the inner power of life is expressed.

    If we wish to be healthy and to do good in the world we will accomplish most by recognizing the oneness of life—that our finite life is a part of the Infinite. As we do good to others we do good to ourselves. We can only be happy by making others happy. This is what Jesus meant when he said, "He that loseth his life shall find it." Let us lose it by finding it in others, and thereby come into the fullness of life.

    Every thought we think has a definite effect on the body—it pictures itself there. Life is made up of many things. As sorrowful and distressing things enter the life, if the mind is allowed to dwell on them, the body becomes weakened. Dwelling mentally on the bright and beautiful things that come into the life strengthens the body. Everything in this world exists for some good reason. Every sad experience we pass through teaches a needed lesson, which, if we would only learn it, would not require distressful repetition. One experience follows another, and if we do not heed the lesson that each contains for us, it must be repeated till we do.

    What happened to the post about the mother explaining how porn was ruining young men and women? She went into more detail, I lost the post before I could finish it reading.
     
  4. Not sure what post you are referring to, in a different thread? Or is this some quick-witted humour I am making a horrible effort at interpreting rofl.

    Sounds delightful whatever is going on :)

  5. Now before anyone scoffs or judges this good knowing advisor I am about to introduce, just understand he probably has more insight into life than the greater majority of folks on this forum as he has already walked the path of recovering from porn and is in the 'league of extraordinary fapstronauts' as he has years clean from the shit and is way past keeping track of days. He could also probably kick your ass if you talked shit to his face and tried to fight him.

    I hate to introduce the guy like this but people here have shown disrespect in the past simply because they are hiding behind anonymity and think they know it all even though they are on a porn addiction forum and may even be actively masturbating:

    Ladies and Gentlemen, without any further ado I give you Clasik Obas!

  6. Started watching The Walking Dead after having abandoned the series after season 2. Picked up at season 5 based on the killer reviews.



    Watching this scene reminded me of something someone once told me: when you really pay attention at all times and are mindful (even while watching movies, there is alot intentional symbolism in film actually) there is a lesson to be learned in every single experience you encounter.

    Rick's advice can totally be applied to NoFap, an urge can strike at anytime and just floor you, leading you to relapse. It takes alot of work to begin to understand the psychological mechanism that addiction is let alone master it and prevent urges.

    It might have been in another thread. It's probably best I don't find it cause I was getting some mental images, while reading, that I'd rather not entertain. It was very graphic what she said her daughters peers were experimenting with. She said there were girls who went to her daughters school who wore bracelets or tattoos that signifies they had participated in a orgy. These are teenagers. So fucked up man, it makes me sick.
     
  8. Ok hahaha definitely not delightful that sounds weird and perverted now that you elaborate and serves absolutely no place in helping us becoming better versions of ourselves hahah wtf.

  9. My Dad was a swinger (he has since reformed after turning 60 lol) and we would always find these glow sticks and rave jewelry in a gym bag of his. Orgies are a shitty tradition that are an expression of a corrupted sexuality and they lead a society to nothing but the depths, and in the end leave them vulnerable to plundering from enemy states. I'll stop there or else an essay would be in order lol.

    Yeah, no doubt. What day of your streak are you on?
     
  11. I don't keep count of days but since you ask I can look at the calendar and try to pinpoint it. Well I tried and I cannot figure out the exact day.

    You know what I almost fucking died last relapse quite literally (you do not want me to explain the nature of my problem but I guess I would explain through PM if you are that curious) and fried my damn brain but it has been a month at least, sometime during the first week of February I want to say. At least a month I can say safely.

    Awesome man, good for you. Why don't you keep track? If you'd like to get some things off your chest, I'm all ears.

    wow, very interesting
     
  14. Thank you, truly. I am lucky to have good friends who support me through these dark times and a martial arts Master who knows all about my fapping problem, yes I have actually talked to her about my problem with masturbating lol. She could see it years before I even began to hint I had a problem with porn, which resurfaced after 5 years of celibacy.
     
  15. Interesting maybe, but also very scary and life destroying.

    She sounds like an amazing person. It takes a special person to see this
     
  17. Ugh, this post... man thank you for posting this. It makes me so sad and so disgusted and it definitely fuels the passion to not be a part of this demand. I actually have that shirt as well, I got it a few weeks ago. But those stats are shudder-inducing. And some of them are even fairly old. I can only imagine the numbers have risen.
     
  18. I'm not even going to get into why I don't use a tracker as I had a thread right before this one that went into extreme detail on that lol.

    Here is an amazing thread on a different forum that expounds on tracking progress:
    http://www.yourbrainrebalanced.com/index.php?topic=15558.0

    Well I hope it is that one if not search other threads on that forum by the same user, TheUnderdog. A king among rebooters.

    Been there, done that you can say.

    Think AA 12-step meeting based abstinence minded recovery compared to a newer approach to addiction recovery as you would see explained by these Doctors,

  19. That is awesome! I also got a street kit and have Fight the New Drug stickers all over my devices lol I'm going to be sitting in coffee shops rocking my t-shirts and stickered devices facing as many people as possible hahah no doubt will get many weird or even disgusted looks, but also perhaps some incredibly rewarding conversations.

    Fight the New Drug is all about changing the conversation on porn. They are basically an educational organization that simply peddles truth, science, and facts.

    Glad to be on the street team, feels good to take massive action for not just my own recovery but to help others gain a new awareness if they haven't already and would appreciate to gain one so to speak.
