    Hey guys, I want to draw up a list with books/podcasts/youtube channels (...) that can help people in the noFap-community on their journey. The topic does not have to be noFap in particular, it can be anything that is about living a better life. I will try to edit the starting post regularly if someone recommends something, so that you don't need to read through the whole thread to get information.
    Please share only stuff that you have actually read/listened/watched or are reading/listening/watching atm, because there is a lot of stuff out there and not everything is truly good :)
    Also, please don't just post the title but also a link (if it is an online resource) and a short description.
    If a similar thread already exists then please notify me.

    Can you edit your posts with the category you would the book in? :) we also can start new categories

    Classic self-help websites still worth a look:

    ttps://www.artofmanliness.com
    - aimed at overgrown man-children who want to become proper adult men, in the old-fashioned sense. Tips on exercise, lifestyle, fashion, careers, families, even homemaking and DIY. Also interesting articles on P-addiction if you dig deep enough.

    https://www.stevepavlina.com - lots of articles of interest from this wacky self-help guru. I personally think he went a bit off the rails c. 2010, so search back through the archives from some really interesting articles. Introduced me to the concept of '30 day trials', and fully documented his insanely committed experiments with polyphasic sleep, juice fasting/feasting, etc, and fully discusses his unorthodox approach to life. Personally I'm not a fan of his podcasts/videos (he's not a very engaging speaker), and I've no idea what sort of person would pay almost $1k for one of his online courses (especially with so much available for free on his website, and elsewhere). But good for him if he's getting rich off this stuff!
