Fugu, I have a question for the you and/or the crew. It's semi complex, may just be easier to answer via message rather than on the show but anyway here it is.. Sorry, it is a bit of a heavy question.

I'm in a situation where I'm not really sure what I want to do. I'll put it in cliff format for convenience

- Currently 18 turning 19 soon, living at home
- I wish to move to a different city, I do not like my current city and it's an opportunity for personal growth etc
- Don't know what I want to do for a job/career (If I wish to study it won't be until 2017 or so)
- I feel like moving would benefit me, but at the same time would be incredibly hard if withdrawals got any worse
- Not sure if the only reason my brain is telling me to move city is because of withdrawals which makes my city feel depressing and shitty, creating the illusion of moving being like an escape. Even though the thought of moving gives me anxiety lol

Sorry if you're not really sure what I'm trying to say but...

My question is basically, while I have these withdrawals of depression/anxiety should I be making serious life decisions? Or should I just wait it out, live at home in comfort until the withdrawals are gone so my judgment isn't so clouded?

Thanks a lot!

Hey OSS, I just wanna say as someone who's lived in his city of birth his entire life, as a matter of fact, I've even lived my entire life in the same house (And still do at the age of 29!)... next year I'm FINALLY moving out as I'm going to be studying in a different city. I've got 3 options and well, I honestly don't care much for where I end up, as long as I end up somewhere else!

I think having a change of scenery is healthy, you'll meet new people, see new sights and experience something different! I'm trading Stockholm (The capitol of Sweden) for three much smaller cities, in fact, two of them are not even cities, they're towns. And that actually feels like a good thing (For me).

So you're young and you don't know what you want to study? I'd say TRY something you think you might fancy! I've been spending my last 10 years (Since graduating) being just like you described: Lazy, unmotivated and a piece of shit. I graduated as a computer technician but 11 weeks of practical work told me it was boring as FUCK. And I'd need another 3 years education on top of that to install printers? No way! So I just spent my life playing WoW and jerking it to porn. That's NOT the way to spend you're 20's man, trust me.

So now that I've realized my problem and thought about what I truly enjoy in life? I've come to the conclusion that I honestly want to make computer games. Its what I've thought about even as a young kid when I first got a taste of Command & Conquer. Only now have I really embraced the idea and decided that fuck yeah, this is worth studying, this is worth 3 years of my life studying!

So try something you think might be interesting! Be it a potential job or a course you can study. Don't hesitate! Unless perhaps you're in America and will get crippling debt from it... then maybe be a bit more careful in what you try studying :P

That's really good advice fnatk.

I know Daniel (user: Jeff) is actually moving out of his home country very soon - I'm sure he'll have some insight on moving and rebooting. If everything goes according to the plan, we will record the show tomorrow...so you won't have to wait too long for an answer.  8)

Hey man sorry I didn't get back to this thread, I spilled coffee on my computer and it fried my keyboard. It's been both a blessing and a curse  :P

I've decided I'm going to move around new years, I'm waiting for financial reasons but the podcast helped me decide I'll do it regardless of where I am with the reboot. It's quite funny because the same day I listened to the show I had 2 different people telling me to just buy a 1 way ticket to a different country and stay there for 6-12 months. Cheers!

@fnatk, Hey thanks for the advice man. Unfortunately it is pretty expensive to study here in New Zealand. I was fortunate enough to visit Sweden (Stockholm + Gavle) and Denmark (Copenhagen + Aarhus) last year and really enjoyed it. I think I would go to Sweden or Denmark if I were to move overseas. Good luck making games man! Grats finding something you enjoy

Good on you man! That's really awesome and I admire your proactive and adventurous spirit. Honestly, you will most likely come out of it completely changed for the better. I studied abroad in central Mexico and lived with a family for only three weeks and it totally altered my life for the better. Made the world I know bigger and changed the way that I viewed almost everything.

Keep us posted if you can, man! I'd love to hear about your adventures and progress.

He just released an excellent book. Seriously, it covers everything from the most up to date science on the disorder to personal stories. Everything you need to know back in ~180 pages or so.

Honestly I am slightly terrified haha, I just hope I have the courage to follow through with my words when the time comes, especially considering adventure has been a strong desire since before I can remember. Nice man, good to hear when others experiences go well. Appreciate the words! I'll throw you friend request on FB once I re-activate my account.

About to listen to the Gary episode!

Hey man, when you have iHaveSeenEvil on the show could you please ask him to discuss his derealization? I want to know if he has any tips to deal with the feeling of going insane when experiencing pseudo hallucinations and thought schisms, also how much rebooting has affected it. Thanks!

Post 633 of his journal I thought I was reading about myself when I read the paragraph about drinking coffee lol.

Hey people! New podcast is live!

In this episode of the YBR show, Noah Church (Spangler) join Charlie (fugu) and Jack (Apeman) to have a brief discussion about his recent adventures and some other pornography addiction and PIED related subject. The episode was just about an hour long, but the conversation was great - Noah knows how to keep the conversation going. Oh, and Jack is back, and has been living the dream the last 6 months ;)

As usually, post questions, comments, concerns and ideas if you got em'!

I hate porn..





Seriously though, good shows! Always something more to learn, these podcasts help refocus intentions behind the journey.

I have a discussion idea.. Usually us rebooters are concerned about performance and whether we will have PIED once we get in bed, but I rarely see anyone discussing how to realistically converse with women. As I'm sure porn convinced many of us that if you help a women fix her flat tire you can expect her to be taking your pants off 5 minutes later. Though many of us have atleast some experience with women it's not enough to over power the unrealistic torrent of porn fantasy from years of PMO. Discussing how to show you're interested without being overbearing and what type of feedback to realistically expect etc. would be a helpful topic. Not like pick up artist stuff but realistic conversing advice.

thanks yo

Hey OSS! What's happening? yeah I think that's a really good question. We can talk about it on the next show. I definitely know that, for me, I just don't think about it too much. I just try not to expecting anything out of any conversation or anybody, and that usually helps me reduce any pressure I have. If I truly feel like talking - cool! If not, no problem.

We will bring this up in the next episode!

Hey everybody! The YBR show is looking for "callers" for the next episode - basically people who have time available next week to called upon during a show. The caller will ask a question and we'll answer it and chat a little bit about it. We're shooting for at least a couple of them. Let me know if you are interested!

I see what OSS is saying.  Once I was giving a program to all high school guys, I was talking about consent to have sex.  We were talking about how girls are dressed and that some guys assume that dress=sex.  And then become crude with the girl.  I suggested conversation and complimenting a girl and then getting to know them  (at a minimum the girl's last name) before the "let's get naked" statement.  Even possibly delay that and go on a date or two.  They literally had no idea how to do  and of the conversational things.  We did some role plays.  But that stuck with me.

The new episode is live! The episode included myself, Noah "Spangler" Church, and Daniel Simmons. We talked about healthy rebooting activities to include in a reboot. Daniel is a meditation pro, and he just got back from a meditation sabbatical a few days ago to lend us some insight. Hope ya'll enjoy!

Also it should be noted: We are looking for "callers" for a future episode. You would essentially just join our Skype call for a moment and ask/discuss a question you have. We'd a have a few callers on the show. Maybe 3?

If you are interested, send Noah, Daniel or me a PM!

Hey fellow Reboot Nation peeps! Noah and I just did a long YouTube, VIDEO interview with Gary Wilson and Gabe Deem about common pornography addiction misconceptions. It was a lot of fun and information packed, so I definitely recommend you all watch it!
