  1. I would say not this specific instance, but I can definitely think of other similar instances in which that did happen like stopping drinking every day & quitting benzos. I can also see points in my life where picking up good habits and being disciplined with them snowballed into even more good habits.
  2. I dipped Copenhagen for like 20yrs. I quit by chewing gum. Not even nicotine gum, just regular. Every time I felt I wanted a dip I put a piece of gum in my mouth. Simple as that. After a while I didn't need the gum as much until eventually I didn't need it at all.
  3. Do you follow Aubrey Marcus at all? He has a lot of good content revolving around open relationships because he's in one. He even released an "open relationship Field Manual" a while back. I tried to upload it for you here but the file size is too large. You can get it here though. The podcasts between him and his fiance are worthwhile too IMO. https://www.aubreymarcus.com/blogs/aubrey-marcus/tagged/relationship
  4. IMHO the way to get the most out of any psychedelic in a spiritual sense is to take it in nature. It's easier to realize your unity with everything when you're surrounded by trees, grass, dirt, wind, water, birds, squirrels, etc than if you're holed up in a cramped apartment.
  5. Tinder, bumble, etc...?
  6. Travel to many diverse and interesting countries/cultures.
  7. This won't be a popular suggestion on this forum but you can research success stories about curing IBS using the carnivore diet.
  8. This is coming from a guy with very little knowledge of your culture so forgive me if some of these suggestions are not possible, dangerous, idiotic, etc, based on your surroundings. Stop participating in religious activities. Focus more on developing yourself and your future and less on the good of the collective. Become as scientifically literate as possible. Focus on financial gain rather than gain in an imaginary afterlife. Try to get a girlfriend and/or make friends who are moving into stage orange. Actively try to be mindful when blue values are popping up in your mind/actions and question their source and legitimacy. Possibly move to an area with more orange like your capital city perhaps or even a richer country. Lastly, don't get yourself killed trying to push the boundaries too hard.
  9. I find it to be a massive benefit at times in my life and a distraction at others. The key is to be in tune with why you're using it and make sure it's having the desired effects, not just decide it's "good" and now use it every day mindlessly, or "bad" and disavow it altogether.
  10. Dont know if this has been mentioned already but cooking your food in a cast iron Skillet will transfer some iron into your food and therefore into your body. https://www.google.com/search?q=cooking+in+cast+iron+skillet+for+iron&oq=cast+iron+Skillet+cooking+for+iron&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0.14007j0j7&client=ms-android-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8
  11. Non-violent communication by Marshall Rosenberg
  12. I can personally testify to this. I'm sure it has everything to do with the foods I removed and not the ones I'm eating, but I've basically eaten 5 foods for the past 6wks; beef, eggs, chicken, almond butter, and coconut oil, and it's drastically reduced my insomnia, acne, joint pain, gas/bloating, and also anxiety but to a lesser degree than the others. I'm slowly starting to work other foods in now. I started with green beans and they flared the insomnia up again big time so they're back out. I've been incorporating some pumpkin seeds recently and seem to be doing fine with them.
  13. This seems like the kind of thing that would have already been posted here but I searched and didn't find it. This is a Zen master who has some affiliation with Ken WIlber discussing Jordan Peterson, the Shadow, and spiral dymanics with Rebel Wisdom. If it's already been posted before a Mod or Leo can delete this. I just thought it was fitting material for this section.
  14. All the insights we had and agreements we made still ring true/wise, but I'd be lying if I said we were able to follow through with every one of them 100% of the time, especially around parenting. It's not easy to erase or override years of conditioning, it takes constant effort. Things are still drastically improved between us though, and like I said we didn't even have any obvious relationship problems to work on going into the experience. We just feel more in love, more open, more trusting, more forgiving, etc. We were on some kind of love-high for the first week or so following. That's faded now but some of the good habits we started during it seem to have stuck. Considering it was a single experience I'm very impressed. I have more and we will be doing it again in the future! Maybe once every 2-3 months as long as I can stay stocked up
  15. I made this thread a few weeks ago about mine and my wife's first experience with it. To be clear, it was her first experience with it altogether and my first in about 18yrs, but I took it maybe 6-8 times before this when I was in highschool.
