Hi advice.

I have been a chronic tobacco smoker since 1997. I am aware of the health hazards and I really want to quit.

My sister introduced me to e-cigarettes/vaping but refills are too expensive and they are not nearly as strong as the real thing.

Can you give me some advice to quit for good?

I wake up and I crave… Nothing helps.

Actual advice would be appreciated.


If a 70-year old tetraplegic with health problems can quit smoking after fifty to sixty years of it, so can you. Other than that, I can't help, because I am not said 70-year old and I enjoy smoking, still.

>find cute girl on some random Discord

>she’s fucking amazing and we share pretty much everything in common

How can I learn to slow the fuck down and not risk becoming some creepy dude in her eyes?


>Yfw this fuckup has been sold to every government and botnet on Earth


stop making orgasmic decisions


You're "in love". That's nothing but a nice little chemical cocktail of serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine designed to biologically compel you to mate and breed. She is not feeling the same, or is feeling the same but is smart enough to recognize it. Point is, love is what happens when you get to know all of a person's flaws, all the unpleasant shit about them, and still want to pick them up when they fall down. You two met in a sterile digital environment, where you can project what you choose to as a persona and ignore the bad. She realizes this and is cautious, or she is just playing you for attention. Either is likely.

You should offer her your number, see if she wants to talk voice to voice. See what happens.


I just turned 17 and am a Sophomore in high school, and I am wondering if I should leave my home for a new one. The place I live in has poor schools, is expensive, and basically makes it impossible to leave for college. Also, my mother is going through financial struggles and it would be a load off her. I live in Hawai'i, and would plan to move to Columbus in a cheap apartment with my friend, I have a few thousand dollars saved up, and I could work part time to support myself. The issues I have with moving is:

>I currently live in a nice apartment in a beautiful place.

>I love my Mother and don't want her to think I am leaving her.

>I am also currently taking college classes at a heavily discounted price which I assume will be beneficial.

>I don't have to spend much of my money right now and I suppose if I get another job again I can save up a whole lot more.

>I know nobody in Columbus and would be going with one friend.

>Hawai'i has a lot of nature and I don't know what Columbus really is like

However, on the other hand:

>I will have to leave eventually and I'll have a larger head-start on getting everything in order before I enter college full-time

>I will have access to a better higher education

>High School is significantly better

>Stronger economy

>I'll finally be a real man

>Columbus is more cultured

>Cooler weather

Let me also add, I am pretty certain with what I have figured out, I could support myself on a part time job. But should I do this?


If you think you can juggle schooling with supporting yourself financially, go for it. Baby birds are supposed to leave the nest. If you fail, you still have a safety net in your mother.

Hello, I am autistic, have social anxiety, have no friends and have a complete inability to form social relationships. I do not have a good relationship with my parents. I have no job and quit going to college when I burned out and fell into a deep depression. On the bright side, I am a computer programming genius and started weight lifting a bit ago (the Stronglifts 5x5 program) and doing tough 30 minutes interval running training. So far, I'm still doing small stuff but I'm working my way up: the bar is 45lbs and I can squat with an extra 80lb, overhead press with an extra 45lb and deadlift with an extra 80lb. Anyways, I'm having trouble with my overhead presses currently. What can I do to give more stability to my overhead presses? Just kidding, how can I make some friends and have some social contact, I'm lonely and depressed as fuck.


Speak to a psychologist. All you can do really - cognitive behavioral therapy should work and your college should have someone who can help you.


I can't get help at my college because I'm not attending classes, and I'm not attending classes because I can't see get help at my college.

I am actually seeing a psychologist apart from college though so things aren't entirely bad.


I had social anxiety for over ten years due to getting my ass kicked on stage (choir performance in retirement home) and being suspended for it.
I went to by doctor and she hooked me up. I didn't do the group therapy but talked to friends about it. The drugs helped and within months I was off the drugs and now I am better. You have to want to get better. It needs to be the quintessential goal of your life or you'll just rely on prescription for the rest of your life.



>What can I do to give more stability to my overhead presses?

Core exercises. Planks and sit-ups and leg lifts.

I'd say reach out for psychiatric help or spend time volunteering for a cause you feel strongly about. At least then you can interact with other people.

Do you still have a contact from that hospital you were in?



next time do the job properly, if you're gonna kill yourself don't let anyone know, nothing worse than being half dead and held back.

Alternatively devote your life to charity or something if you're truly suicidal and not just an attention whore


how do you get mediocre community college grades?


fuck off kike, we need lesser people like you


Post pics of your feet OP. If that's actually you I think you have a pretty face

So I finally got my first girlfriend at 19 years of age. I've had kisses and makeout sessions before, and sex one time.
Now I was ready for a relationship and fell in love. She's a virgin, I'm her second boyfriend ever (My relationship is already longer than her last, and it was 6 years ago)
I really need advice on the fact that she was out of town for 3 months a week after I asked her out. During maybe the beginning of second month of her being gone, my buddy had a party. Where I got stupid drunk and made out with two girls. One was just on me, the other one I saw an image of my girlfriend and she was almost the same girl in everything and I made out with her. She wanted a relationship but after an hour of sobering up and a liter of water I realized I fucked up and told her I don't want anything with her when she had feelings.
Is that considered cheating? I have not told her for over 2 months. I know I fucked up but I swore to myself that I will never do it again and completely stopped drinking to become Drunk.

pic related: its alcohol


If the relationship is worth having, you need to get right with her. If you're in it for the long term, you need to be willing to be transparent about these things.

And you need to lay out what happened if you really wanna get right with her and keep the relationship in shape. Otherwise the guilt will eat you alive.


Dishonesty is how relationships die. Romantic or otherwise.

I am damn sure I just came across evidence that in 2015 a guy I was in the Navy with was on line preying on underage teens. I want to to find out if he is still doing it and to get new evidence that will get him in trouble. He is still serving and it disgusts me that I know he was and likely still is doing so. The problem is that what I found is old and not enough by it self to do anything with. Does anybody have the knowledge or skills necessary to track somebody online or hack them and find out for sure?


Just report it to the DOD with as much evidence as you have and let nature take its course


You should probably give me his deetz.


I don't know what I did with the last five years of my life. I don't know what I'm doing with the next five. I just feel aimless, like some meandering mote, where everything is so far away that I can't create any meaningful focus. Or where if I had erased the previous five years of my life that it really would not have meant anything important to me.


pick a hire power. live by codified principles. serve others

Hey /advice/.
When I pull back my foreskin, underneath the head of my penis, I have these white little lumps. (Pic related. Like that, but not as bad)

Can I do anything to get rid of them? What do?
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


>i've never completely had sex
What does that even mean? Did you not stick it in all the way?


Don't worry about them OP. Talk to a doctor if ur really really self conscious about it because you can get rid of them… but they aren't anything. I have them myself but they're much smaller and not as noticeable unless u spent 2 minutes straight starring at my dick and inspecting it. They have no effect on you whatsoever and apparently they're more pleasurable for a woman when having sex with her.


Penile something whites. They don't really do anything except make you self conscious. You can get them removed by the doctor, or I've heard of people using the most dangerous and painful man technique of brushing them off with a toothbrush with toothpaste. (I seriously doubt anyone has tried it before, I just heard it secondhand)



Those are penile papules.

Nothing to worry about.

Don't have to remove it, tickles the vagina.


smaller than blackheads? no worries

larger? worry

more like califlour? infectiom

So, I'mma try keep this as shot as I can.
My best friend went out with this girl. He cheated on her, they broke up. Two years later, I started going out with her. (I talked to my buddy about it and it was cool with him. She hates his guts, but they both understand I'm staying out of it.)

I have a different group of fiends with my girlfriend (my buddys ex) and we sometimes rent houses and go on little week long holidays. Thing is now my buddy (my girlfriends ex) is going out with someone in that group and they want to invite him to the next holiday.

There's no way my gf will stay in the house with him for a week, and it's unfair to just tell him and his girlfriend they cant come (I like em' both. They're both my friends) but it's also unfair to leave my girlfriend (and possibly me) behind.
Im so fucking stressed over this…


It's easy. You dis-invite fuckface and the unfortunate person that fuckface is with. Calmly, politely, and matter-of-factly explain it to the unfortunate person who is shacked up with fuckface, and problem is solved.


I can't simply invitee him.
For one, He and his girlfriend are friends with everyone in the group. (including myself)
And secondly, It's not up to me. I dont get to dictate who can and cant go.



If I were you, OP, I'd let your friend (her ex) be invited for a week.

Tell your GF to take responsibility for her emotions for a week.

You should consider going mgtow.

Stop sharing roofs with wamens entirely.


invite him

the mature people will cope

ditch the ones who don't


I need advice. I have a job that's not that good and I've been contacted by a huge firm that will probably pay me very well and offer an exciting opportunity. I went to this company's page and it's post after post after post about women equality and diversity and race issues, and it disgusts me.

I want to send them to hell ASAP but on the other hand the temptation to give it a try to finally get a decent job is huge. Please, call me a faggot and tell me how bad it could get to get me out of it. Experiences would be more than welcomed.


can you keep your mouth shut in the face of endless poltical correctIness?

yes: suffer onward

Do you recognize and accept:

y-chromosomal persons are male. everyone else is female?

yes: suffer at your firm for monies

no: it's a perfect magic you magical thinker

Do you have a morally flexible personal ethics?

yes: take job

no, i live a principled life: you know what not to do
