Last June I stopped fapping, for the purpose of restoring the peen to its long-lost glory, and to stop feeling like a total degenerate. This is for all y'all still dealing with the struggle, to learn about the long road to recovery.
Admittedly when I first decided to do the 90 day challenge I was skeptical about what I was reading. I am a male in my mid 20s who has always had an issue with ED and an inability to cum during intercourse. For me I was skeptical as to how such a simple thing as stopping masturbation and porn could provide a miraculous solution to a deeply ingrained psychological issue.
It's been a while since I've been on here and after this post I won't be on again for a while. I recently started watching porn and masturbating again, but in moderation.
I started off well. I had one pmo session once a week. At first it was good, the porn was enjoyable and as such the session only lasted 10 minutes. However after just two sessions, I started to notice things...
Like most of you I discovered online Porn in my early teens, I'm now 25 and single with 2 previous relationships. After having a realisation that I was litteraly only interested in sex, I decided it's time to sort it out to get a emotional connection back as well as physical, and during this I discovered nofap.
This isn’t my first streak, but it is my longest. In a couple of months I’ll be 18. I started NoFap a year ago. When I started, I struggled with anxiety. I felt impending doom in regards to the future - being forever alone, getting shit grades etc.
Wow! 90 days. I feel like it’s been a while, but I do feel quite a lot better after doing the challenge. My mind is so much clearer, I have so much fucking energy and anger now, but hey that’s ok! All I have to do is meditate, exercise and put that energy into positive vibes and routines.
Started trying NoFap in October. Failed over and over and over. Finally got my shit together and am now hauling-ass to a better version of myself. Will NoFap change your life? Yes. Will NoFap revolutionize your life? It might, that’s up to you. Here are my thoughts:
So I had been trying to quit fapping for years on my own, but I never had much real success until I found this place. At my worst, I would fap roughly three times a day (on occasion as much as five or six).
It's so bizarre how people get swept up into things and don't realize what's going on until it's over. I didn't know I was a porn addict until I wasn't one anymore. I think that's true for a lot of people like us.
I finished my 90 Nofap challenge and it was easier than I expected luckily. I've read countless 90-day reports to keep me going throughout and so I feel it is my duty to create a reddit account just to post this. Hopefully it helps you guys out and gets you through some tough times like it did me.
