I recently become convinced i'll live to be very old,like 80+ and im scared or starled about it.
loneliness,possible damage to vital functions,the surely dystopian future,etc.

how can I prepare?how can I stop my body from degenerating?I started a series of anti-aging measures such as cold therapy and caloric restriction. Im 25 now,still live with parents.So i guess i will live half my life alone.
Im also considering taking the vow of brahmacharya, 12 years. If it works as planned i would have some decades to enjoy the glory brought by brahmacharya.

I am more afraid of growing old than dying. I have watched my mighty grandparents and now my beloved mum deteriorate into a shell of their former selves. I cannot understand why there is so much industry and government dedication to making people live as long as possible, as if quantity is better than quality. People can now live to 100 years old, but at least the last 10 years of that is going to be confused and drooling in a nappy and a wheelchair. That's not life.

And it honestly scares me that the last thing I will see would be some minimum-wage immigrant nurse rummaging through my personal drawer for valuables while I'm dying alone and unloved in a cold, sterile nursing home or hospital room. No. I am only alive for my mum's sake. As soon as she goes, I at least want to go on my own terms too.

Didn't mention suicide. I was thinking more of the spirit of Peter Wessel Zapffe's Last Messiah: life blowing itself up after as a result of overdeveloped consciousness. He lists some reasons why humanity hasn't gone nuts, but it's still hard to believe we all have sort of collectively taken it on the chin up to this point.

This is what I am absolutely horrified of, ending up like this. Lying in bed of some retirement home not being able to feed myself or going to the bathroom by myself anymore, having a nurse taking care of me. I hope I will never end up like this.

Old people are happier than babies. Who the fuck cares if you lay in your bed all day shitting yourself, there's no expectations, no worries. Everything is at peace. You no longer care about money or parents or bills or even whether you'll live or die. You can get away with being as much of a bastard as you want. My grandparents are the happiest people ever while their wageslave children strive to please their high expectations that don't even exist anymore.

This is just anecdotal to me personally, but this doesn't seem to happen to succubi to nearly the same degree that it does to men. My dad started taking a big pile of pills every day before he was 50, my mum's almost 60 now and doesn't take a thing.
One of my grandmothers lived independently by herself until the day she died (including 6+ months with terminal cancer) and the other one is in her 80s and still moving around like she was at 50, while on the other hand both of my grandfathers completely fucking disintegrated into total vegetables before they died. Could hardly walk, couldn't stand without help, half-senile, depressed as fuck, constantly in and out of the hospital, organs failing, incontinent near the end, the whole works shut down gradually over years before they kicked it.
Maybe it's the succubi's revenge for the fact that we age so much better than them in the first half of life.

Just look at that Churchill dude, he made it to old age even after being a fat motherfucker that was addicted to tobacco throughout his whole life. He wasn't healthy or followed any diets and lived a very strenuous life too and yet he was capable of many fabulous things, and was a great intellectual.
So truth be told, it's all genes so check within your family, your relatives and how they are doing health related.

They idolize the bitter old man archetype. Depcrabs know that a 20 year old trying to convince people that life isn't worth living is a silly sight, they want to be old men for that sweet proof of experience ethos.

The only reason I want to live many more years is because I have (admittedly naive) fantasies about life becoming much easier due the advancement of technology. I am actually quite optimistic about the future of the world in general, and considering that I have a fairly good life in a first-world country, I think I will get to benefit from much of that.

There's a very good chance I'll look back on myself in 30 years time and call myself a fucking retard for believing that though.

Yeah, me too. I thought everyone on wizchan had a plan to kill himself when they hit 30/35/40. It gets harder and harder to live as life goes on with chronic illnesses and shit. Especially if you made poor decisions concerning your health in your teens/20's(i.e. not brushing your teeth, not working out, fucking up your eyesight etc. like me).
Media isn't infinite. You'll eventually run out of good books to read, good games to play, good movies to watch etc. Then you either start consuming garbage or you find a new hobby you're interested in (which gets more difficult with age).
…Why do people here want to live 'til their 80's again? If someone reading this is one of those people, please explain your position. Especially since it's 10 times harder to live alone when you're older than 70.

i havent run out of entertaining and interesting things to consume, not even close. i predict the production of such things will explode in the future also. my curiosity and sense of discovery compels me to look for new and interesting things. i just go from one thing to the next. i like the ideas from stuff, how people combine all these ideas together to create stuff, the ideas that fill my head when i look at it. i look forward to getting older because i wont have to eat as much food. i have blind hope in a UBI future. i want to see new technology in the future. i just want to observe and learn and consume forever

Well, knowing your dosha and the habits need towards it could help.

Temazcalli cleanses the body, too.
And fasting every month at least, some days…

The vow of brahmacharya should not be taken unless with a plain perspective of it, with healthy libido. Not being a mummy like you must be right now.

But what if you don't have enough to live on other than state pension after a typical norman retirement age. Being 80 years and still working a job to pay the rent on a apartment seems like hell. That's even if you have a job. If you couldn't get into some hostel, might even be homeless. What are the criteria to be able to get into a state nursing home?

retarded chart. of course boomers are going to be more happy, they took the entire world's resources for themselves and are sitting on it waiting to die with no responsibilities or cares. meanwhile millennials and gen x are depressed as fuck because they have nothing, and gen z is still too young to realize how terrible things are going to be for them and are simply content playing fortnite and jacking off to e-succubi. literally has nothing to do with age in itself. seriously, have things ever gotten better in your life? have you ever in your life lived through a period where things improved generally in society? we're on a one way ticket to hell and i'm getting off early.

Caloric restriction is just going to make you miserable. Do intermittent fasting, have 2-3 meals a day and a small snack. Don't eat outside of that to keep your blood sugar from fluctiating wildly. As for nutrition, keep your protein relatively low, around 0.8g per kg of bodyweight, red meat only rarely, fatty fish twice a day. Your carb sources should be veggies and whole grain for the most part, skip the simple sugars. As for fats, 1 - 2 tablespoons of good quality olive oil per day, nuts and seeds. Do at least 30 minutes of cardio every second day, some strength training (fuck gyms, just use your bodyweight) to keep your cardiovascular system healthy and your muscles and joints from deteriorating. Eat whatever your ancestors have eaten (roughly), since that's what your body is optimized to eat. Do a 24-48h water fast twice a year.
Source for all of this is "The Longevity Diet" from Dr. Valter Longo. It's been a bit since I read it but that's the gist of it.

Why do you think you will be alone? In 10-20 years there will be many more people who are single and don't care and other kinds of relationships will form. Basically you'll have friends who are like family. Even now you can have online friends. I don't even care about meeting people in real life, except for a hobby but that is only for the past few years (I am 34). Before that I didn't speak to anyone. As you grow, the less you care about what other people think and if you have company. You will be also less afraid to talk to people. Of course, social anxiety may remain but not to that extent because your brain grows up. Teenage brains (up to 25-30) are very emotional and easily depressed.

Btw, I think a person your age can live to 120 or you can even reverse aging.

reseach autophagy from fasting I find it helps I look very very young despite treating my body like shit and probably because I fast quite a lot.

Over my 20s and now in my 30s I convinced myself little by little that I will commit sudoku, probably in my 50s, if I get there and don't die from disease/accident before. After years of thinking about it from every angle, I'm totally ok with it.
