Long time lurker first time poster…of any forum ever (StarkQ must be working). But after reading the forum for a while this seems like a good group to get involved with. Plus I think I read somewhere that these journals can help sub development, so I guess adding my experience seems fair considering how much I like the subs.
I started EOG when it first came out. So pre-Q. At the time I don’t remember really feeling anything different. I listened 8 hours during the day and 8 hours at night. I did this for about a month/ 4 weeks per stage until stage 3 and for some reason I just stopped cold, possibly 2 weeks in (I now realise this could of been reconciliation). About 3 months ago I picked up EOG again and ran a stack of the first 3 stages on a loop throughout the day with more emphasis on stage 3 as I didn’t get the full month previously. I have since started stage 4 and I am about a month in and I’m now using q level.
What has happened so far?
It’s been small and subtle differences with maybe one major change. I changed my business to a business that will mean less hassle and potentially more money, giving me more freedom which is ultimately what I have always wanted. I have started to negotiate far more, even with small things like changing my broadband provider. I ask a ton of questions, I make sure I understand exactly what is going on with any deal before I commit to anything. Which for me is huge because I never wanted to bother people and would just agree. I am less concerned / stressed about money, I have a “this is the money I have, how can I use it most effectively?” kind of attitude. I’ve never had a chip on my shoulder about wealthy people, but more of a desire and wanting be one of them and I now see that as an obtainable goal.
StarkQ and SpartanQ
I got these two at the same time when stark came out, so I think at the time of writing this its been about a month. I’ve just switched to stark terminus. I should mention my current stack is
EOGQ Stg 4 x 2
Spartan Q x 2
EOGQ Stg 4 x 2
I’ve been way more enthusiastic about being social. One example, for many years I hated going out seeing friends it very much felt like a waste of time and did it to keep friendships going. So that has completely changed and friends have texted me to say how good it was to see me, which did happen before but not as often (Just goes to show what a miserable prick I must have been, lol). I have noticed that in the moment my interactions with friends have been great but later I will question “why I said this or why I did that,” which something I have always done but this has been exacerbated recently and it sends me into highly anxious kind of self loathing.
My face does look slightly different mostly around my jaw. I’ve also noticed women making solid eye contact with me more. I haven’t used StarkQ to “get women.” I’m so concerned with fixing myself and business that adding women, based on past experience, will make life more complicated and cause a distraction I neither want or need.
I’ve gone down a belt notch, which I noticed this week. I’m not obese or even regarded as fat but could definitely see that my mid section was starting to become a problem if I did nothing about it. I don’t feel like eating junk food as much. The base of my diet has always been really good, I’ve just had problem with junk snacks throughout the day. I’ve noticeably put on muscle this past month and I have more physical energy. For example, whilst out biking in the past I have found points while riding that I’m struggling to bike up a hill and I would complain that (to myself) that I “can’t make it” or “need to stop” etc. I don’t have that anymore, I’m now riding up the same route faster and harder than before. My workouts haven’t changed but I feel like lifting weight more than before. It’s more of a want than a should.
Also I should ad that, although I am not the sort of person that will let people walk all over me. I have had a fear of confrontation with strangers and possibly let things go when I maybe should have said or done something sooner. The consequences of violence (either being in trouble with police or getting hurt as a result) or concern about what people might think about me has concerned me for years and I have secretly felt like a coward for it. I have really admired and been somewhat envious of friends that don’t give a damn. One friend even walking into a neighbours garden at 1 am, in his underpants, whilst they were having a party, turning down their music and shouting at them “I told you to turn it down!” It was only a small party but still, the balls on that lad!
Since using spartan I feel like those concerns are there but are more of a healthy/sensible concern rather than a fear. As in, ok, violence is not what I want, nor am I looking for confrontation, but if I tell someone who is being a d*ck to “f**k off home back to your auntie mum and uncle dad” (or something equally eloquent) and they don’t like it, who cares? and if they get violent I can handle it… unless it’s Chuck Norris… never mess with Chuck Norris.
That’s it for now. It’s a rather long post, but hopefully helpful.
