I have given up completely I still post actively in the electric guitar forum and sometimes the guitar gear and accesories forum, I come to the pit for the show!

Probably how I am right now. I have lived without constant indulgences before and I frankly think it keeps you focused. It's genuinely difficult, boredom can quickly morph into something much crueler, but at the time it made a better person out of me.

I find the opposite more like surrender than deprivation is. Deprivation is earnestly a thing to be cherished. I'm not saying we should let starving people die cuz it builds character, but the opposite--total absorption into every whim you could possibly have--is fucking deadening, and so seductive and seemingly innocuous as to be impossible to walk away from without immense force of will.

There might be a more severe level of surrender (to what is this surrender? I'm curious about my phrasing here lol)--I'm thinking of opiates and a noose--but that is recognizable. The less recognizable form, your own gratification and ease taking priority (this is even constantly reinforced by marketing; everyone wants you to make your life easier, receive answers rather than look for them, reduce the angle of your recliner and let them do your work), is just as abhorrent and difficult to get over.

I've always respected discipline, and it's one thing I never figured out. I don't mean an ascetic existence, but just self-discipline. I think that's what arises out of deprivation.

This is more serious than anyone asked but yeah, giving up looks like this to me.

Giving up would mean consciously set aside my inner values, principles and goals because of external forces. Those forces could be "bad" (money problems, having no wifi, etc) or could be "good" (being very comfortable in my own life that I forget those values and goals, living in constant indulgencies like ali said, etc).

EDIT: Though to be honest I don't really care and the above definition is most likely some pretentious bullshit I I came up with that I somewhat believe in. So honestly I dunno, I think if I ever "give up" it'll be based on the traditional view of it (in the appropriate situation). The above can still apply, but I doubt I'll ever think of it that way in the moment-to-moment of my life (though it's fun to do some mental workout and think about it)
