This will probably be my last post for a while.. I am in a much better place now and thanks for all the helpful advice and resources that your brain rebalanced have provided.. I just want to share my experience and some insight that I gained along my journey. I lost my virginity at age 29...and really started to watch internet porn after college when I was 24, usually only a few times a week and never escalated to content other than one on one sex.
I have done nofap/pornfree on hardmode for the last 180 days. I have had 1 orgasm that entire time and that was a wet dream on day 14. This is my first update post since I started pornfree and nofap. No 30 day post, no 90 day post, nothing. I've avoided writing anything because despite this personal success, the last 8 months have been the worst of my life.
I've been fapping since I was 11, I'm 17 now. I have been trying to quit since I was 15, and have had multiple streaks through that time. Part 1 - It was fun when I first started, but I really did notice some of the negative effects of fapping when I first started.
Sooner or later lobbyists are going to come looking, which includes billion dollar industiries like pharma, TV etc, because you don't need as many things to make you happy, or drugs to make you feel better. They will lose a lot of customers, which means huge losses as this catches on.
Like fat, salt and booze, masturbation is one of those touchy health-related topics for which the latest medical news always seem to contradict the advice of the past. Eat no fat! Or, just good fat – but not too much! But not too little, either! And hey, salt is a killer – but it can be deadly if you don't eat it! Such is the progress of science.
It's my first decent report because I thought I would never be able to write one, as english isn't my first language. I'll do my best. (Finally it's bigger than I thought. Sorry for the long "Context" part, but I never wrote it down and it feels good to let it out.)
