I meditate aswell and tried various forms of therapy.

It's not like I'm considering diving into psychedelics without an understanding of the risks involved. I've done a fuckton of research, read several books on the topic, and several scientific papers. It's a last resort option that I am still hesitant to go through with, but it's an option nonetheless.

Yes my life is indeed very easy at the moment, but the reason I can "mouth off" is because my life was complete SHIT a few years ago. It took me a couple of years to turn it around, but at the moment I am in a very good position.

My life was fucked up in every way possible: Shitty childhood environment, mental illness in the family, psychological problems & depression as a result of that, completely broke, aimless life without an idea what to do because I had literally zero support from anywhere. So basically I went from a completely fucked up situation to a very good lifestyle.

I can say that the only thing that will have any effect is taking action in any direction. As they say: you cannot steer a stationary vessel. Just start working in a field that you think might be interesting and take from there. I'm not talking about gym or nutrition or meditation. I'm talking about working, building new skills, applying new skills, and making money with new skills.

Both New Ice Age and Irish Guy are right. Psychedelics can bring forth therapeutic transformation. They can be a catalyst, but also developing high income skills can transform your whole lifestyle. The whole "go to the gym bro", or "just approach more women bro" don't work for everybody is because they are vague. Every human being is unique due to genetics, environment, life experiences, and etc. Irish Guy needs more tailor made solutions for his life problems, and broscience isn't gonna do it. But for that to occur he will need to find his own solutions, or seek out a consultation with a professional.

Not my thing anymore, but in my day I did enough psychedelics to send an elephant to Neptune. I've had good times and bad, overall I really don't think they're the great teachers many on the internet would have you believe.

Fascinating substances, and an interesting thing to do from a bucket list perspective. When all is said and done though, largely a novelty, and unlikely to lead you to any "aha!" moments.

I doubt you'd have any long lasting negative effects from one trip. It's just that doing it in a phase of your life where you're notably anxious and uncertain could make it an absolutely harrowing experience.

I haven't read the whole thread but here are my 2 cents anyhow because the subject line is appealing.

I believe this entire lonely wolf livelihood was accompanied by the first iPhone in 2006. I believe this was hard-coded into the first iOS ( sorry just a joke on the side)

If you have been living a life before the smartphone revolution you might comprehend the difference. Nowadays I only see empty souls running through the streets of the world. The most strange encounterI had this week in Brazil. I was approaching a girl and she was actually telling me she would prefer to meet me online rather than talking to her in the street as a stranger what a world it has has become

Well times have changed, and we have no choice but to adapt to times. I worked as a concierge, even though i'm pretty anti social media. In someway I wish I wasn't. All the women I've met and friends that had IG all had a decent amount of action, followers, and quality pictures. I wish I made my own personal IG, that had high quality pics with 1k followers. It's a way of social proof, and with that I wouldn't even need to really use dating apps. You can demonstrate high value with quality pictures much easier, then having a 30 minute conversation. It's the convenience, easy accessibility, and a great filtering process for women. It's either you embrace it, or get left behind.

You do have to adapt, but you also can't deny that it's easier to basically lie on online platforms like IG.

As I mentioned elsewhere, some of the girls I've met through day game here in Lviv look several years younger in their online pictures, likely due to filters etc. Never mind looking like they're richer or more traveled than they really are. Tag your sponsor!

Same of course applies to guys, save for the sponsors unless they're gay.

And unless folks live exclusively online, at some point, they have to meet reality. So it's not a surprise that Gen Z is actually engaging in less relationships and sex than previous generations - reality doesn't live up to their online fantasy world.

The above will fall on deaf ears though, so meh. Enjoy the decline!
If you haven't met anyone, I'll assume you're lying (h/t to Teedub from the old forum)

Every time I pretend to adopt I get so bored doing it. online hunting is outright the most boring thing to do... For me. Well of course most profiles are filled up with lots of lies and photoshopped pictures and that's the main reason I love to talk to girls in the street I know what I'm getting into.

The very new generation will never figure it out and who cares they really believe that having a million Instagram followers will fulfil their life I wish them good luck and truly hope they keep pursuing that same thing forever, meanwhile I keep hunting the girls in the streets as I seem to be the only one doing it. Thanks

Maybe you are just looking at things wrong. Most of life can be fun and easy. Just don’t take things so seriously. You might have X, Y Z wrong with you mentally but can you let yourself go and see what happens?

If you want to focus on all of the stuff you “should” be doing that people say is good. Why not try being a highly functioning alcoholic/drug user/porn deviant. If you get the right dose of chemicals you can keep it going fairly unnoticed and get to enjoy the benefits of being in a much better life. Do a reset every 5-6 weeks, with a quick detox and chill, spend time in the spa. Then get right back into the cycle.
