Hey guys, Enki here. Many of us know that in order to overcome addiction, it must be supplemented by building a better life for ourselves (the reason we became addicted to PMO in the first place was to escape a life we didn't like anyway). "The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new." - Socrates. So besides nofap, has anyone found any communities or resources for self-improvement in various areas of their life? This can include anything from fitness, socializing, dating, spirituality, career, school, mindfulness, etc. ANYTHING you like that helps you improve. Hobbies are also accepted, no matter how esoteric. But the big four categories of focus will be social, business, school, and physical well-being. Let me share a couple of my own for starters. All of these are free. Social The Art of Charm podcast - I listen to the "toolbox" episodes of the art of charm whenever I get the chance. It's a lifestyle podcast that teaches you how to incorporate high level (and fundamental) social skills into your life. It's designed so that socializing/networking is not just something you do, it becomes an ongoing layer of your life. They also have at least three high level people interviewed each week. These guys give away a TON of value that will be too much here so just check them out if you're interested. Charisma on Command - find him on youtube. Charlie breaks down the habits of Charismatic people into bite-sized pieces so you can apply it to your own life asap. School Ted talks - Many of you have heard of these. It's not directly related to school, but it does help to expand your mind. This is on my "to watch list" so I can see it when I can eat. edx.org - This site has TONS of free online college+ courses taught from schools like MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford and the like. If you want to just learn, most of the courses are free, some courses are paid ($1500 was the highest I saw). You can also get certified if you want but it can cost anywhere from $5-$50 from what I've seen. Khanacademy - Business The Smart Passive Income Podcast - This show gives you knowledge, resources and steps for how to create your own (usually online) business and eventually make passive income on the side. Self-Made Man Podcast - So far, I've only listened to one episode but it was so good, that I just had to add it here. The host went in depth with his interview about how to start a company. Fitness Reddit's r/fitness - It's a community of people who share resources and knowledge about how to get more fit. It's mostly about lifting and diet, but there are full-fledged guides over on their wiki page. Other [Motivation] The Ziglar show - This was the show I constantly listened to to drag me out of my depression and motivate me to take action in my life. It gave me hope for a new life and let me stay on nofap longer. It's also the gateway to help me find the rest of the resources here. You could say it's the self-improvement Grandaddy. [Skills - Varied] Lynda.com [Being a Man] r/everymanshouldknow [Being a Man] The Art of Manliness Podcast I don't have time to get into the nitty gritty details now, but if I get enough feedback (and reminders), I'll continue to add more value and provide links to this in the near future. P.S. I use the "Podcast Addict" app on Android to listen to any podcasts I like. I can get up to 9 channels and download as many episodes as I want to listen to. Again, this is all for free (unless you decide to dive deep and buy their courses). ================== Resources shared by community Disclaimer: Although I have heard and consumed some of these resources, I have not personally checked all of them myself.
