From now on, the >>>/rec/ board should generally be used for conversations about recovery from NEETism. This is not a hard rule but you are likely to have a better experience.

Seeing as absolutely everyone misread the /hikki/ rules sticky and used it to draw apocalyptic conclusions about the death of all that was good about /n/, here's a less flippant sticky with less room for ambiguity, in the form of a Q&A. We've also made some concessions based on your feedback in thread >>13, which was moved to /sugg/ for being meta.

What is allowed on this board? What is its purpose?
On this board you can discuss and request or give advice regarding NEETism, Hikikomoriism, anxieties and social or mental issues arising from these conditions of living, and things closely related to these topics. If you're content with being a NEET at this stage in your life, that's ok, and you won't get in trouble for saying so. The board's primary focus is self-help and advice regarding these issues. Despite rumors, threads looking for help with suicidal feelings or drug addition are also allowed.

What is not allowed on this board?
* Encouraging others to become NEET.
* Attacking or discouraging others for being NEET.
* Giving or requesting advice on how to enter the NEET lifestyle.
* Encouraging or showcasing drug usage.
* Announcing your planned suicide.
* Helping others to plan or commit suicide.
* Topics not related to the purpose of the board. Such topics will be moved.

I do live alone on disability bux. Almost everything gets delivered and magically materializes at my doorstep.
The system works but isn't very stable… or enjoyable.

Yes! And I'm here to take over the world for the elves! Mwahahahahahahaha!

Just kidding!

I was a neet in my early 20s, got a job tanks to my parents, worked for a few years, lost my job over a year ago and just been sitting here

I feel like being a neet in your 20s was better / easier than it is now. I am going back to work since my money dried up but its so isolating as well.

I absolutely hate everyone here. You are all whiny babies who do mental gymnastics in order to justify your inaction. You need to grow up before it`s too late, BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION. Free yourselves from this desperation and torture and FIGHT against the cruel reality that surrounds you. BECAUSE. THERE. IS. NO. OTHER. OPTION!!!!!!!!!

Unions are blood sucking parasites. Wherever there's a union, you don't don't really have a choice but to be part of it, and they have large membership fees. Then, they end up focusing on all kinds of completely irrelevant libtard shit instead of the one thing they're supposed to. Organizations aren't in a charitable mood after meeting their demands, so they don't give anything except what is demanded of them. It creates an antagonistic relationship between worker and employee.

That's why teachers, who spend 7+ hours a day in school, not only don't get free lunches, they don't get offered food to buy. A lot of suburb schools are in a random field too, and you're not supposed to leave the building in the middle of the day. So you really have no option other than to bring your food from home, which isn't how socialism is supposed to work. They don't even get free coffee. You have to bring your own. With unions, you get the worst of both socialism and corporatism, without any of the good points of either.


thank you, anon
a union recently emerged at my workplace, and i seriously considered joining, because i did not see any drawbacks
now i know better

I've been unemployed for about 3 months now because of my worsening chronic illness. Even though it wasn't really my choice, I still feel like a loser and a drain on the world. I'm still studying a bit and working on my programming skills, but I feel so lonely and isolated no matter what I do.

This is totally me, I feel so uninterested in just about everything, japanese porn is alright tho LOL


>took 30 minutes to write this reply. anyone else do the same thing?
Over the years it's increasingly taken me hours or days to make a single post because I'm afraid of there being something stupid in it that'd aggro angry replies towards me, or that I find it to be lacking substance or sincerity through poor vocabulary and therefore making me look stupid or shallow. With those two factors compounded by depression it locks me up, and for over a year now I can hardly speak to anyone without sounding like I'm mentally challenged or not even finish a single sentence and suffocate on my tongue.



Same here. I think it's because socializing is a skill that needs to be worked on and covid/social media fucked my entire ability to form relationships with people. I always feel like someone is going to fuck me over as soon as I trust them. Better to just be fake and don't tell anyone anything. I also feel that most conversations are filled with meaningless stupid shit just to fill the void. >>8008

Something very similar to this just happen to me hours ago in a call with friends that ended up boring. Not trying to sound like the last cocacola of the desert, but trying to find someone interesting that don't talk about "normies" (ᵈᵒⁿᵗˡᶦᵏᵉᵗʰᵃᵗᵗᵉʳᵐ) topics or similar feels impossible, to the point that the conversation just die in minutes, with the feeling that you just fool yourself.

>even online. just cant hold a conversation for more than 10 messages. took 30 minutes to write this reply. anyone else do the same thing?

Same thing to me. At least it seem is more frecuent that i think.

to be honest the best strategy I found for getting out of this kind of rut everyone’s talking about is getting horrifically obsessed with something. Chances are, you’ll find a community for that thing and be able to go from there without ‘normie’ topics interfering. I’ve got a friend who, if the conversation dies, will IMMEDIATELY start talking about VTubers and it’s honestly a relief because i get to hear about whatever mad shit they’re up to + no one’s asking about the weather or anything. Small talk like that is saved for being stuck in an elevator or a bus being late.

get something cool or new or if i bake something or stuf like goddamnit i just cant help but worry that im going to break it or do it wrong or make it grimy or idk. like im a privileged mid class white kid but its genuinely crazy how anxious im getting like to the point of tears over shit that most people dont even have the privilege of owning jesus fuck help


also the folks put me in some distance education school because apparently im a lil delinquent so maybe isolation is the problem but im genuinely just not a very pleasant person so i don;t really see any applicable solutions.

I'm a good kid, I'm a real good kid, but this one bad break fucking RUINED ME. Now I can't do shit, everything's shit, I AM SHIT. I can't write a paper to save my life. But I want to! I want to prove that I can! Let me do anything else please!

I have been cleaning my house, I've done the dishes everyday, done my laundry, done all this goody good nice stuff that I would usually ignore, plodding around looking for ANYTHING to do. Anything but that god-forsaken paper, cause I just can't do it. I feel like it's impossible, and each moment I'm just inching towards failing. I feel like this is unfair? How could this happen to me? IM A GOOD KID IM TELLING YOU. Stupid Friday, stupid weekend, stupid paper, I've tried to stay up on Sunday and Monday to do this, and I just gave up around 5 AM both times. I woke up today on Tuesday at 1 PM, And I still haven't done that paper. I know I'm turning back to how I was before, and I can't fight it, I'm too scared to go back, I wanna stay where it's safe, even though it hurts me in a way I don't understand. I can't be strong anymore.

I really messed up real bad this time. So someone just fucking AAIHUUGGHHH tell me the magic words, how can I fix myself before I turn back into something I don't like. I'm sorry.


It's all gone. I didn't save it. And now it's gone. It doesn't even feel that unfair, I just don't want to go back.


You accept that you have fucked up and think about what needs to change for you not to fuck up but prosper instead. There is not a single silver bullet other than "Get supportive friends."


It's Valentine's Day and I'm worried out of my mind, I don't know how bad the repercussions are gonna be. But honestly last night, I just accepted it, and I slept like a baby. It's nice having a somewhat clear mind and being on somewhat solid ground. I've been running around trying to get all these things done, and it just hurting me.

I know it's selfish but I gotta put myself first. Whatever happens happens, Happy Valentine's mates <3


take it a step at a time and stop being gay, one paper isn't gonna be the end of it

i was wondering what kind of things have being a neet change in your life. What things did you learn? whats your list of things you wanna try? what did you try? has anything made you change an opinion you once strongly had? future plans changed? what do you mainly do with your time? Anything of that sorta thing.

it's like people can see right through me. as soon as i open my mouth, they know they're dealing with a loser. some have the decency not to make snide remarks, but it's depressingly obvious how differently i'm treated. like a pest, a disgusting bug that needs to be dealt with. The Metamorphosis by Kafka hits too close to home.


do these people know you're a neet? or are they random strangers?


i had random strangers in mind when writing that post. situations like being treated differently from other shoppers at the checkout, stuff like that


I know exactly what you mean. I get extra scared to go outside anywhere like grocery stores during typical working hours because then it's even more obvious that I'm a NEET. But I don't want to go out in the evenings when there's more people everywhere either.

I actually really like any sort of physical activity but it's hard to do much in a small apartment

>I get extra scared to go outside anywhere like grocery stores during typical working hours because then it's even more obvious that I'm a NEET. But I don't want to go out in the evenings when there's more people everywhere either.
I usually go when the shop opens. It's always just full of elderly people. The only thing I'm worried about is how I shop at the same place, and buy the same food every single time. So even if they don't remember my face, when they see the same things lined in order I always think that they remember me. That's why I recently started to buy different things at the store, even if I don't really need them, to sort of confuse the clerks because it feels so pathetic otherwise.

>people like you


Nta but why are you on this board?


I cannot recommend getting a bigger portable battery pack enough. Since I stay without power regularly (voluntarily or not) it's awesome to have something with a 100 Watt USB-C port to charge whatever I need, be it my laptop, phones, lights, radios or even reviving rechargeable batteries.

You can get "palm"-sized 150Wh boxes with Li-ion cells and passive cooling for about $120 new. And yes, small "phone powerbanks" are overrated, they suck.


I can't afford this

Poorfag list

- Mid tier PC or laptop
- Comfy bed and heavy weighted blanket
- Headphones
- Recycled old PS2 controller
- Bookshelf for vidya, pirated CDs, books
- Trash can to dispose of waste and semen
- Plushies and blankets
- Hidden crawl space


explain this to me like im a retarded child please, what would you consider a mid-tier PC?
in that line of thought, itd be nice to have a satelite laptop just in case.

I do not mean on this site but in general where are all the losers hanging out online now because all the imageboards are very slow and any of the bigger platforms are suffocating by censoring controversial opinions driving discussion of those topics away yet where is everyone?

ver the past 5 years it is like nearly every hikikomori realized that online communities for losers were not worth the drama or they killed themselves.

it's retarded


I never liked coming here that much, but now there really isn't a NEET board. I am a former one now so I fit in with this board's theme more anyways.
It's okay. A little boring though.


I really apreciate you putting your lessons here, i'm not one to post a lot either, and when i do all i can feel is doubt, i fear what people might think of me, that's because i've always wanted to be seen as smart and the cool guy lol. i'm trying to get into the state of mind of not caring about it, and only minding my own, it's been a bit tough but every day i feel more and more, even if for a few hours, that i'm a real person. i hate most social media sites, popular things just feel like complete garbage to me, and i just don't want to feel bad about it anymore. im just replying because i wouldn't want a post like yours to be left out in the wind, you've poured your heart into it i can really tell, thanks again i wish you the best.
