A Weaksaucebro's Transformation

Recommended Posts

A year ago, I made two major decisions in my life.  It all began on the month of No Nut November 2018.

  • To quit porn and masturbation
  • To quit gaming

Long story short: I made my first entry on November 5th, 2018.  I failed No Nut November on November 6th, 2018.  Fell into post nut depression, and never looked back since.

From then on, for months:

  • I continued gaming
  • I continued playing tug of war with myself and watching porn
  • Stayed unemployed under my parent's roof

Then the following summer came:

  • I got a job
  • Decided to go back to school
  • Did some summer classes
  • I continued gaming
  • I continued playing tug of war with myself and watching porn

Then fall came:

  • I became confused about life
  • Quit my job
  • Started procrastinating on my fall classes
  • No longer wanted to do what I studying for
  • Fell into a low point with gaming, porn, and masturbation
  • Began searching for more outlets: anime, a girlfriend, friends, the internet

Fast forward to today:

  • No Nut November was tossed into a discussion while gaming
  • Began evaluating my life
  • Decided I still had one more chance at redemption
  • Logged back onto forum.gamequitters

I started my first journal memeing, but I want to take things more seriously now.  I really want to change my life now.

As of now:

  • I am behind on my classes, will have to drop one to complete the remainder
  • Decided to pursue automotive instead of my current major in spring semester
  • I will begin learning code on the side
  • I started working again

I will have to develop a system to safeguard my dreams tomorrow.  As of now, I am too tired.

But finally, I am back.  No Nut November 2019.  Oh how I have been waiting for you.

Prior to this, I read some journals for inspiration towards creating a system.  One that inspired me was @Shine Magical's diary.  The thing that stood out was the idea of becoming a priest in real life or "gamifying" my life in his journal.

Formula for Leveling taken from Disgea Leveling (source: http://howtomakeanrpg.com/a/how-to-make-an-rpg-levels.html)

( 0.04 * (level ^ 3) + 0.8 * (level ^ 2) + 2 * level) (100) = Exp needed to level from current level (rounded to nearest hundred)

So to gain XP for the levels, this level gauge will take XP from all sets as its own:

  • All Skill XP gauges
  • Achievement XP
  • Daily XP

The level will max out at 99, which will proceed to a different scaling system, but I have not thought that far yet.  However milestones reached for levels:

  • Level 30 = Big Reward
  • Level 50 = Big Reward
  • Level 70 =  Big Reward
  • Level 100 = Big Reward 

(Scales bigger, the higher the level stage)

I want the rewards for be something meaningful though like a lifestyle change.  Travelling to a different part of the world.  A car.  A house (maybe not an acutal house, but like buying resources to make a tiny house).  As for the level 100 reward though, that might take some big brain time, but it's still a long way.

Formula for Ranking Skill Sets taken from Original D&D (source: http://howtomakeanrpg.com/a/how-to-make-an-rpg-levels.html)

Unlearned (Must meet a requirement before proceeding to rank F) -> F -> E -> D -> C -> B -> A -> 9 -> 8 -> 7- > 6-> 5 -> 4 -> 3 -> 2 -> 1 -> S -> SS -> SSS -> Master

( 500 * (rank^2) - (500*rank) ) = Exp needed to advance skill rank (level) from current rank (level)

Skill Set Ranking Gauge

  • Unlearned (lvl.1) = 0 XP required (Must meet a requirement before proceeding to skill rank F)
  • F (lvl.2) = 1,000 XP required
  • E (lvl.3) = 3,000 XP required
  • D (lvl.4) = 6,000 XP required
  • C (lvl.5) = 10,000 XP required
  • B (lvl.6) = 15,000 XP required
  • A (lvl.7) = 20,000 XP required (Must meet a requirement before proceeding to rank 9)
  • 9 (lvl.8) = 28,000 XP required
  • 8 (lvl.9) = 36,000 XP required
  • 7 (lvl.10) = 45,000 XP required
  • 6 (lvl.11) = 55,000 XP required
  • 5 (lvl.12) = 66,000 XP required
  • 4 (lvl.13) = 78,000 XP required
  • 3 (lvl.14) = 91,000 XP required
  • 2 (lvl.15) = 105,000 XP required
  • 1 (lvl.16) = 120,000 XP required (Must meet requirement before proceeding to skill rank S)
  • S (lvl.17) = 136,000 XP required (Must meet requirement before proceeding to skill rank SS)
  • SS(lvl.18) = 153,000 XP required (Must meet requirement before proceeding to skill rank SSS)
  • SSS(lvl.19) = 171,000 XP required (Must meet requirement before proceeding to skill rank Master)
  • Master Status Obtained

I did some math and calculated that through this skill set ranking gauge, I would reach 10,000 hours of practice on a certain task

if 1 hour of work = 100 XP and any time less than that would equate to whatever percentage scale, like 30 minutes = 50 XP

Achievements

Whenever I reach a certain achievement, I will gain XP, not sure how I will scale it.  Most likely to my personal preference as to how meaningful that gain was to me.

But something in the thousand range or hundreds, not too high like over 10,000 XP.

Some I can think of:

  • Reaching 225lb on my each of my lifts (bench, squat, deadlift) = 1,000 XP for each
  • Learning Overhead press and incorporating it into my exercise = 500 XP
  • Learning an accessory exercise and utilizing it into my exercise = 100 XP
  • Finishing a book = 100 XP
  • Finishing classes = 100 XP

Dailies

XP gained from perform on a daily basis such as:

  • Spending time outside = 50 XP
  • General Fitness (Running, Swimming, Lifting, Stretching) = 50 XP
  • Reading = 25 XP (to balance achievement and daily XP)
  • Cooking = 50 XP
  • Chores = 50 XP
  • Classwork = 10 XP
  • Smiling at somebody = 1 XP

Special Rewards for being Porn, Masturbation, and Game Free

At the end of each month, I will reward myself for being game free or porn & masturbation free.  Some I can think of:

  • Weightlifting shoes (first month, slightly pricey reward, but really need some)
  • A drink
  • Good eats

Rules

  1.  I will track for four days a week consecutively.
  2. Three days after I will rest and live life non gamified and no online journaling.  No XP will be gained or tracked these days.
  3.  Nofap and NoGaming counter will continue on the rest day, will report accordingly on the four active gamify days.

@Shine Magical, hey!  Awesome to see you here.  Socialization has been an odd trip for me.  During my time spent gaming, my main source of socializing was through online people.  Rough times.  But I am working on my interactions with real, physical people.  Simple things like a smiling at somebody.  Baby steps for now 😌.  Thank you for your advice, and I will consider adding this to my dailies.  You're awesome!

*System Notice: Leveled Up to 2!*

Level 2  (1/800 XP)

Skill Sets:

  • Coding Rank F (0/1,000 XP)

Dailies:

  • Chores +50XP
  • Outdoors +50XP
  • Classwork +25XP
  • Smiling at somebody +1XP

NoFap Counter: 4 days

  • +1 day

No Gaming Counter:  2 days

  • +1 day

Developer Notes:

  • Trying to spend some time on coding, but right now the classes I am taking are nearing its deadline.  I will try to make a time slot to fit coding in however.
  • Questioned the system a bit and decided to modify it to my liking so I won't feel as pressured.  Instead of doing this journal entry on a daily basis, I decided to journal only four times a week.  The other three days, I won't journal and gamify, just so I can relax a bit and enjoy life in the moment.   I will reset the counters if I do relapse these days though.
  • Last night, I was debating if I should use this system or not, but I'm going to follow Dan Pena's advice about if it doesn't work in two days drop it, but also to his rule, if it doesn't work then what can I do to fix it?  Right now, I think it works.

Current thoughts of this system (my opinion):

Pros

  • Easy to track my progress and reward myself
  • Easy to document
  • Less time spent over reflecting
  • Simple

Cons 

  • Lacks some warmth or depth in details (don't want to clutter)
  • Pressuring at first, but modified it to my liking

Pros outweigh the cons, and if it's something I am uncomfortable with such as the cons listed, I can find other means to adjust to the cons.
