This is really good poetry. I wish I knew where it was from, but I think that comes from envy toward the emotional release such expression signals. Before, I was a poet who loved.

Put a book under your t-shirt in the middle of your chest. Your t-shirt needs to be loose enough that if you don't pull your shoulder blades back the bookwill fall.

Try standing at your desk, that's what I've started to do. It has helped a little, but I've also started exercising so it might be more to do with that. If you don't have enough space/reach for a mouse, consider getting a keyboard with an inbuilt trackball.

Hi /bm/!

Tell me what you do for your sleep.

>What time do you go to bed?


>You're taking pills?


>You have habits before bedtime?


I'm always going to bed at 3am, and I fall asleep like 4 or 5 am, I really starting to think that I have a problem.

Usually go to bed Between 2 to 4 AM. Today I fell asleep around 6, woke up around 15:00, which is one hour less than I'd want. I know that for me, the ideal amount of sleep is ten hours, and I naturally sleep that much when totally free.
>taking drugs
No, not ever. I'm in control of myself, and on drugs, I wouldn't be.
>You have habits before bedtime?
I usually try to check flanfly before bed, on 4chan's /jp/.

No.153

>What time do you go to bed?
Usually around 6 AM, to 4 PM, though I'm not very good at maintaining that.
>You're taking pills?
Not for sleep, though I probably should, as it takes me a good hour, at least, to fall asleep.
>You have habits before bedtime?

I go to bed after midnight but I make the effort or going to bed before 1 AM so most of the time I go to bed at 12:30 AM.
A couple of months ago I got my first smartphone and since then after I tuck myself in bed i watch a cartoon, watching Tv always helped me to fall asleep

Anyone else here dealing with erectile dysfunction?
I definitely have it now, though I should've seen it coming earlier– I think it came from jerking off too much, I used to do it several times a day just because, y'know, it felt good and was fun. I still check things like exhentai every day just out of habit. I'm without a doubt addicted to porn.
I should see a therapist about it, because my girlfriend definitely isn't a fan of it.

Anyone have any luck with beating it?

No.144

Nope, but I know that's one of the symptoms commonly cited in NoFap circles as a reason for increasing restraint.

There's just too much novelty available otherwise. 3D literally cannot compete with 2D. Unless you quit cold turkey and essentially let your system forget all about how much better it is, your 3DPD will leave you. Doesn't matter how loyal you are, how much money or attention you give her, etc.

No.145

>>143
First I'd check (if you have insurance and it's simple) with a medical doctor and see if something's up there.

How long have been jerking off and how frequently? If you power through a few days without it I'm sure your girlfriend will have no problem getting you up.

No.146

>>145
At my peak I'd be jerking it 6 times a day, now it's about down to once or twice a day.
I guess cold turkey is the only option

No.147

Yeah 6 is definitely enough to introduce your dick to some dysfunction.

Try to go as long as you possibly can with out it then no more than one from now one. Even better just fuck you're gf when you need to. Use a cock ring

Anyone have experience with natural anti-androgens/phytoestrogens/progesterones? Was thinking about trying purera, but I know the success rate isn't always that great, and it needs an androgen blocker to really be effective I hear. Anyone know any? Google turned up a few but there's very little "in the bush" research on it, and not very much academically, either, and any conclusions I can draw are pseudoscience (Oh, Chasteberry increases urine flow in men, must be an antimineralocorticoid!).

If you work/go to school in the morning, what time do you go do that?

For me having to be up early kind of naturally forces a decent sleep schedule

If you're n33t though just use a combo of caffeine and sleeping aids to stick to an 8:00am - 11pm schedule or something

No.119

Do you get a lot of caffeine or anything in particular a day? Whenever I try to pretend to quit soda I fall asleep a lot earlier.

I'm legitimately curious if any of my fellow chu/bm/en(?) have insightful advice/experience on this topic:

Is there really a point when taking any steps towards any level of 'transitioning' becomes fundamentally a waste of time?

I'm past the third-way point in my life, and I feel like shit; I would never want surgery or anything like that, but when I look into the mirror I see something too far gone to even bother /trying/ to cd, or hell, even start a tailored exercise regimen instead of general fitness. I know people redefine their identity at all sorts of different points in their lives; but I feel that on some fundamental level I *know* it'll never "work," so why even bother? why face that disappointment? Is never knowing the even worse fate, though, I don't know.

For that matter, do any of you have any tricks for dealing with that profound sense of I guess ennui? Ways of normalising and coping with the eternal questioning of oneself; on how to better deal with self-perception, or fuck, even meditation techniques to better understand one's true state of mind, potentiality and desires?

So I'd like to know what, if any, experiences y'all've had wrestling, and any advice you may carry towards the real boots-on-the-ground realities of overcoming or compromising with, any of this. Honest personal insights.

Challenging OP. I been in more fights as a fat guy that when I was a well build guy in the military. Seems most people think they can kick your ass just because you're packing some extra weight. Besides that, it's what you expect from being fat.

Less pussy, lets face it, women might bitch about how men need to change their views on beauty, but they won't change theirs.

I become more of a hermit since I gained weight and really don't deal with people unless its work related. But I think that's just me and not because I'm fat now, always been somewhat of a reclusive person.

No.44

>>43
I have found that yes, the women who might have been in to you when you were thin won't like you when you're fat. However:

There is a certain type of women who are in to heavier dudes for whatever reason. If you find them you can get some action. Sometimes they can be good looking too. All they ask is that you throw your weight in to them during sex.

No.105

>>44
chick into heavier dudes here

it's because the guys who tend to put on weight are generally the opposite of auschwitz mode liberal betafags

that said, there's a difference between big guy and big guy who doesn't maintain himself hygenically
