    Not sure what compelled me to log in here. I joined in 2007 @ age 20. Things were pretty bad for me then. I was out of shape, horrible body dysmorphia, erectile dysfunction, anxiety, failing university, no job, alcohol problems, pornography/prostitute problems, no meaningful relationships ... I could go on.

    It's now almost 2015. I've traveled the world, had plenty of fun flings, had a serious long term relationship with a girl I was crazy about ... I've got plenty of money in the bank, regular employment & hobbies which keep me busy. I'm sober, in fantastic shape, & I wake up each morning with energy and a sense of direction. Things are good. Change was gradual, but the past 2 or 3 years have been a breeze.

    Everyone is different, but I'll just say that for me habit was everything. I feel like I am my habits. Once positive behaviors gained momentum, they were easy to continue. Likewise, as I engaged in negative behavior less & less, they became less and less desirable. Now the pleasure I get from living the kind of life I do is powerful enough motivation to keep me a away from my former vices. That's all. Good luck to everyone.

    Great to hear and thanks for stopping by. "Habit was everything" -- very strong and meaningful words for any that choose to hear them.
