There will be times when I would go super Machiavelli with my game with the gurlza and in manipulating other friends and acquaintances.

However after a few month or so I would inevitably slip back into the nice guy role of caring about what others think. I don't know what happens but I would go back to being accommodating other people's needs.

after a few weeks I would go back into hating myself for these nice guy decisions and eventually go back into being my pragmatic self.

in the meanwhile a lot of time is being wasted.

what do you do when you can feel like you know you are going into relapse mode? what post do you go back to remind yourself about the realites of life?
