lifestyles not going away

★★ Novice

So my sim got the workaholic lifestyle and that wasn't something I wanted for him so i made him see a lifestyle coach to get rid of it, but he still gets the buffs for it and it still appears active under the simology panel even though under cheats it doesn't show up under his remove traits/remove lifestyles anymore. so, i thought i'd give him two other lifestyles (he already has people pleaser) since there can only be three active, and the workaholic is STILL active and nothing i do can take it away, nor can i take away any of the other lifestyles i just gave him. even the lifestyle poof away potion won't work, and the cheat to remove lifestyles doesn't work either.

Hey! I had the EXACT same issue and here is how i fixed it!

Type testingcheats on

Then, shift click and go to cheat sim info. Click to ADD a lifestyle and add the one that has been afflicting your sim back. Afterwards, repeat the process but this time go to REMOVE lifestyle. Use cheats to remove the lifestyle you just added.

It fixed mine! Hope it works for you too! Standard smile

Same.  And I really don't want to be 'Single and Loving It' anymore. *sigh

I had the same thing happen. I wanted to get rid of the workaholic lifestyle because it was giving nasty buffs. I used the "lifestyle go poof" potion and although it took it away from the quick look, when you look at all the lifestyles, it's still active and *still* making my poor Sims miserable. He's a judge and so there are days he's home. Even writing opinions and giving rulings on his day off isn't helpi  I think that this is different from the "I've got 4 lifestyles now and the cap isn't working".

@crinrict   This also feels like it's related to https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/SE-Moodlets-from-inactive-lifestyles/m-p/9760990#M164043 more than the "4th Lifestyle, no cap." (Although they certainly all could be related!)

I'm on a PC but evidently MAC users are having the same problems.
