You ever start a streak with the feeling that this is going to be the one? That's the streak I'm on. Here I am on day 192 a completely new person with confidence in myself that I never had before. Those who are struggling this is a message that it does get better with time and perseverance. If you relapse pick yourself up and continue this streak is a result of many relapses.
Last weekend I was back home at my parents house for father's day. Hung out with a girl who I've never had sex with but we've had an awk friendship. We've tried have sex but my dependency on fetish porn didn't make it happen.
Pornography seems to be everywhere today — in advertising, on online sites, on phone apps, on screens ad nauseum. And that easy access is challenging the way many couples interact with each other, often with devastating consequences.
Have you ever felt empty or drained of life's energy after watching porn? Or felt like you lost any purpose in life? Do you use porn to help you fall asleep at night? Or use it to calm you down before or after you did/do something that causes you to be anxious? Same here. I was 7 when I first got in contact with porn.
I'm a 26 year old guy who has a pretty long (and pretty typical) history of watching pornography. I started looking at pictures online when I was 14 or 15 and progressed to videos by 16 or 17. Started having sex at 18 and have had a couple long term girlfriends since then (have been dating current girlfriend for three + years).
Can you believe it? I am 28, I have posted on here before and my whole life I have suffered from never being able to cum from sex or a blowjob or anything.I have been masturbating and watching porn every night for the past 10 years. Realizing that women have been walking away from me because of not being able to cum, I decided to make a change once and for all.
After 2 months of NoFap i can tell you if you re starting now, please take deep breaths and go on, you will have hard fucking days, but if you resist you'll win. I don t know if it s of no fapping, but my life changed a lot.
She just tell me right now that this week I'm weird. She said " I feel like i'm not speaking with you, but with a stranger that is saying whatever". Before I made her laugh easily (I just need 7 days to get my humor back and find my words much more faster, I think it's brain fog that goes away).
I've always been an introvert like many of you and never had any problems staying alone at home for weeks (or so I thought). Im a 21 one year old guy and this year -because of many reasons- I wasnt able to find a university and spent September through November at home alone playing video games.
