    Lightbulb How do I know I am an addict?

    Hey y'all,

    A young man (mid twenties) who here who found MGTOW a few months ago, before any particular woman could deal serious damage. I have been fortunate enough to learn from those around me. My parents had an insufferable marriage. Many older friends/co-workers have divorced and they've lost homes, wives, and children, while being indebted for life by alimony and child-support.

    I could hardly believe my ears when an older co-worker told me he was paying about $4,000 a month to an ex-wife who he didn't have children with. He said, "Never get married. They'll take your hard earned money and rip your heart out while doing it." I am so lucky to have met men like this at the beginning of my professional career.

    Although, I must admit, my emotions and thoughts are still continuously invaded by women. Everyday I take a red-pill (consume some red-pill media) to counter the thoughts and feelings I have about women. Any advice on how to stop these perverse time consuming thoughts and emotions is appreciated.

    Woman have been an addiction the majority of my adult life. After I rephrased the questions from rightstep.com of "How do I know I am an addict?", I realized I am an addict. And, that is going to change.

    1. Do you feel a compulsion for a woman's validation to get through the day?
    2. Do you crave for a woman's validation at a specific time every day?
    3. Have you ever sought medical attention because of your want for a woman's validation?
    4. Has anyone ever suggested you quit or cut back on your validation from woman?
    5. Have you made promises to control your validation from woman and broken them?
    6. Have you tried multiple times to stop yearning a woman's validation without success?
    7. Has your performance at school, work or home been affected by your want for a woman's validation?
    8. Is your want for a woman's validation jeopardizing your job or business?
    9. Has your want for a woman's validation interfered or caused problems with personal relationships?
    10. Has a want for a woman's validation led to financial difficulties?
    11. Have you become less ambitious or productive since a want for a woman's validation?
    12. Do you constantly think about the next time you can get validation from a woman?
    13. Have you suffered from memory loss after receiving validation from a woman?
    14. Are you able to receive a woman's validation now without feeling the repercussions, compared to when you first started?
    15. Do you experience withdrawal symptoms after a period of time in which you havenít received a woman's validation?
    16. Do you go to extensive lengths to obtain a woman's validation?
    17. Do you remain intoxicated by a woman for several days at a time?
    18. Do you say or do things while intoxicated by a woman you later regret when sober?
    19. Is your want for a woman's validation a means to escape worries or troubles?
    20. Do you want a woman's validation when alone?
    21. Do you want a woman's validation because you are shy with other people?
    22. Do you want a woman's validation to build self-confidence?
    23. Are you experiencing sleeping problems due to a woman's validation?
    24. Are you hanging out with old blue-pill buddies you knew before red-pilling?
    25. Do you experience distress, anxiety, depression, restlessness or feelings of aggression when you donít receive a woman's validation?

    Re: How do I know I am an addict?

    Hello, what made you go your own way? A little bit more detail would be very helpful for a proper intro. I assume it wasn't just the story a coworker shared that pushed you to do some self reflection on your addiction. It is good you acknowledge this addiction but the way forward is that you have to find what going your own way means for yourself. I do not think going full monk mode is going to work in your case, but here are some baby steps to follow:

    1. Do not date any coworkers or friends of coworkers.
    2. Focus on work and less on flirting with coworkers.
    3. Keep it professional.

    This is standard advice for any man to be honest. But if you are adhering to these rules move onto the next three rules;

    4. Do only casual dating and avoid LTRs
    5. Avoid dating within your family and friend social circle
    6. Avoid single mothers at all costs.

    Once you adhere to all these rules then you can discard them and make your own plan.

    Going your own way means making your own rules but until then follow these simple rules. As you learn the nuances of these rules then you can be more flexible with some and more rigid with others.

    Hi fog,

    You are in the New Members Intros forum, which is good, but you are asking us questions for a dialogue when you should be telling us much about yourself, a monologue.

    Please read the sticky How To Intro, also in this forum, to know how to compose a valid Intro. A valid Intro is a requirement for membership and we all had to do one.

    Thank you.

    A real pussy addict wouldn't be talking to us. Fuck that stupid list too, if you don't have a problem they don't have a job.

    It's tough when your young, but your off to a good start. Do the best you can and take it one day at a time. Save up some money and go where it's legal if you can. That'll keep you from thinking your an addict, though the real cure is getting old and that will take awhile.

    Y'know - if he'd just added the answers to those questions, it'd be a decent intro. A very structured intro, but a decent one in my opinion nevertheless. Explains the motivations for going his own way, and that's really what intro's are for right?
    Shame is a womans primary weapon. Watch for it, and call it out wherever you see it. Few women know how to handle a man immune to shame.

    Re: How do I know I am an addict?

    Looking at the list the problem is obvious. Fog you have chicks on the brain. Their pussies are in your head urging you to do something stupid. I get it. You are a young man and there are urges that are completely natural and the result of thousands of years of biological programing. So the question really is: In the interests of your own safety and well being how do you break that programing and flush these cunts out of your head?

    Simple. You de-program yourself. How? If you watch TV, movies, theater and listen to modern music you are being swamped with blue-pill mangina, feminist messaging. Constant exposure will, repeat WILL have a negative effect on your mind. That is what it is designed to do. The first step is to recognize that this is all an effort to manipulate you--see it for it is...we call this...truth. After accepting the truth of the situation the next step is to expunge these influences from your life. Stop going to the movies and theater. Cut the TV cable, and toss the modern music into the trash bin. Try this instead: watch old classic movies, and old classic TV shows if you must, OR just pick up a book wander out into the woods and read. Enjoy the peace, quite and tranquility. Purge your associations---blue-pill betas will try to shame you and drag you down to their level. Women should never be associated with for obvious reasons.


    OK that leaves the biological component. Fortunately as we men age our "drive" diminishes to 0, but before that happens you can mentally condition yourself to kill off that pesky libido. Remember the male libido exists for one purpose only--to ensure your perpetual enslavement to a female. I found the technique of negative association very useful. Anytime I thought about a chick sexually I automatically flooded my mind with gross or sickening imagery. So my mind automatically associated the two and what was left of my libido was executed. BUT if the urge is overpowering treat it like any other bodily function like peeing, crapping, eating. Just spend a couple of minutes in the shower rubbing one out then get on with useful pursuits that improve your life.


    I don't often give advice but I desperately wish someone had re-pilled me at your age. would have saved me a lot of grief.

    How did you find out about MGTOW? Do you have any favourite MGTOW YouTube channels?

    Re: How do I know I am an addict?

    I think this whole thread is insincere troll bait. Sounds more like a blue pill man or woman that is ONCE AGAIN putting women as a whole on a completly undeserved pedestal.

    She's/he's saying that these FATTER THAN EVER (per norm) or even skinny ones (too entitled) are allegedly also SOOooo IRRESISSTABLE and addictive that you need a $30,000 rehab center just to overcome them. (Referencing the site she/he ad-libbed her/his bogus questions from)

    So this LAME little blue pill cuck, or brainwashed feminist, has to come to a forum like ours to be a good little white knight in a completely PUSSIFIED passive-aggressive way. Doing a weak wannabe attacking of the so-called misogynists.

    Either hoping for pussy points as mangina, or is a Cult Of Feminism person mocking this place. Or just an angry booted out former member of this excellent website (not projection on my part. I never once formed a troll ID when I was banned from here for being too red pill...I swear to God.)

    I say NAY! Ban this transparent troll.

    You know, Ace, in the void of your absence it seemed that we generally backed off from challenging the faker newbies but we went too far in the other direction because I've not yet seen our collective BS Meter recalibrate as needed for the fakers who still trickle in to this site but who go unchallenged. I am glad to see you again opining at these times. There should be no welcoming a newbie or chit chat with the newbie until a valid Intro is presented to prove he is genuine. Period. The importance of uniting to enforce this rule must not be underestimated.

    Sometimes, these pussy bois from other websites need to hear the power of testosterone before they realize they came to the wrong place.

    Take a number guys. Trolls and feminist infiltrators are everywhere and they are relentless. (Our other site; TIM is very small and very new compared to you guys on GYOW but we are under attack DAILY.) Why they can't just leave us in peace I'll never understand.

    Ace, I tried to PM you to thanks for the rep and also to say a few words offline, but I got the above message. Your Inbox is full.

    This is a good time for everyone to clean out their Inbox as you may never know what messages you did not receive.

    It shouldn't be easy to join this forum and it shouldn't be hard but I expect courtesy, thoughtfulness and Ace to nerd circle the fucky intros.

    As you know, I've been gone to long, ha ha. My original plan with the comment publicly anyways. But since I had a bunch of errands to run since part of that plan was also to rep you, I will clean out the mailbox. (Copying, then pasting to an email account, then deleting.)

    I appreciate your comments because as much as I hate being that guy, I've see what happens when forms let these transparent or these seemingly transparent trolls get away with the little too much.

    See, I saw purple pill forum that I joined in 2004, my first red pill, slowly devolve into a blue pill paradise with quite a few transparent females who you thought about feminism or the red pill, I'll do anything in my limited power to keep that from happening to this place.

    Now I used to go a little too hard at things I'll admit. Now see some post and I just let the people hang themselves before the harsh questions and responses. By you or Frog, typically, that does a lot and gets me in the position where I can jump in and say "nay."

    When your in a rare air of being too red pill for red pill Reddit even, naturally some fake newbied will seagull on in like the one hit wonder OP of this thread.

    Might as well show the comment I made on your rep score, Unboxxed, because it agreed
    agrees with the perils of--as you said two posts ago--going too light on half-assed intros. As much of a hardass as I used to be...I'm gonna also take Sgt Hulka's advice at times too (Bill Murray and this movie Stripes rules!): https://youtu.be/B65mtE2TN1w

    Re: How do I know I am an addict?

    fog, You either want to blow "fog" at us here , or you're in a fog. After all comments being read, & my own observations on your grand revelation, ( I realized I'm an addict, & that is going to change) Yer killin us here. what insight, real mea kulpa. You are a fraud. There it is. If I'm proved wrong, I'll admit it right here. I've eaten crow before. But your pussy-guilt, dripping with your self-flagellation is friggin hilarious.
    I have no judgement when someone feels bad about a past course, & vows change, I've done it here publicly. Cool. It's just that your self spanking & subsequent punishment sounds too phony. Now go sit yourself in the corner.
