How are you guys doing turning your life around?
I've quit weed, cigarettes and hard drugs, cut waaay back on masturbating and alcohol, exercise regularly and have been focussing all my energy on school, reading, my hobby (guitar), and yard work. Will be headed out to get a real job soon too. Feels great lads. Almost all of my degenerate feelings and urges have been vanquished and I can almost fall asleep easily. This radically different to one year ago when I was teetering on suicide, addicted to just about everything I ever did, suffering from malnutrition, and facing homelessness and immense debt.. If a piece of shit like me can do it, so can you.
What made you turn yourself around mans?
Also, sounds like you're doing a fine job. Keep it up.
How do you motivate yourself? I try and wind up falling back into my old routine and habits.
I was pretty much fucked but my parents offered me a place to stay so now I want to get away from them so bad and success is the way to do it. I already tried failure. Also I realized nihilism is retarded.
Graduated after 4 years of college Moved out. Got a job in my field. Have great family. Good friends. Still wanna die.
Well I relied on the generosity of others to slow my downward momentum and be a NEET for a summer, but most people start there. First thing I did was create a success game plan that will require effort (school). I failed at that twice already so this time I needed to do something different. So I cut my addictions 1 by 1, now cycling to another each time. Also self-loathing comes from the realization your a peice of shit worthless slob. Self-improvement comes from imagining if you werent. What would that look like? What if I was a young version of the next Thomas Jefferson? What if Im destined to be a great man? Theres really no reason for those things not to be possible.

same, but im pretty sure that never goes away. So I figure life is struggle, so dont get beat by it.
Nice, hope everything works out for you.
I still masturbate a whole lot. How do you focus on school and work if you don't masturbate a ton? I can't get a clear mind otherwise.
I am so proud of you, I hope others can follow in your stead and improve their lives.
Thanks anon. hopefully others have a success story, or an update to their quest.
