I hope what I am about to say here will strengthen you and inspire you. My streak is not amazing like many of you here, (now at 4 months (120) and 7days) although I had once been in a 400 days+ streak and had fallen from it, yet I have learned some amazing things during these 4 months that Id like to share with all of you. Let me ask all of you a question:
I tried to end PMO for 1.5 years now and today I hit 6.5 months without masturbating. Yes! Let me share you some of my experiences and thoughts. I am way more focused, energized and social active when I'm controlling my sexual energies and as I truly understood this, NoFap became really easy for me.
It was December, 2013. I was frustrated. I was finding it hard to concentrate and focus. I knew there was a New Year coming and I wanted to nip this problem in the bud once and for all. I Googled something like: “how to get an erection back”
I just wanted to say, after going no PMO, I can put so much more concentration on my uni work and absorb information much more easily it's unreal. My head is much clearer and most things i learn stay in my head.
I would just like to share my story. It all started during August 2015 I found out about Nofap, and starting dedicating myself to it. But still, I would relapse after short streaks. November 2015: I told my friend about Nofap he believed me right away. He only did 2 hours of research that night (he told me) about porn use and its cons. For the next 2 weeks he would tell me about how hard it is.
I started with NoFap back in 2012 after I experienced my first signs of PIED. I had heard of NoFap in social anxiety related circles so I thought, alright. First months were 1-2 weeks streaks. Around 2014 I moved over to pornfree but continued to try fight in both fronts.
I've been a lurker for around a year and my longest streak before this was two weeks. Apart from that one off the most i could manage was about 3/4 days tops before relapsing. However, just over a month ago i met a girl and we really hit it off. The day before i went to meet her for the first time i decided it would be worth another shot at doing this properly.
