I am a sober alcoholic fapstronaut and I wanted to impart some of my experience, strength and hope about NoFap and most any abstinence program. First off, my experience: I was a fapper and a budding addict/alcoholic from a young age and took many to the extremes.
I am 23 year old male, I have been masturbating to porn since I was 12, 13 years old. Meanwhile, I suffered from social anxiety, obsessional compulsive disorder and used alcohol and pot to feel relaxed and calm my mind.
Author of "Wack: Addicted to Internet Porn" Noah (Spangler) Church joins the crew to talk about his new book and his growing (and most excellent) YouTube channel. Noah gives some great advice and tips and advice on his YouTube channels.
At the end of the episode the crew also reveals our full names! OH ME GOSH.
Yep, I am an old-fart. In my 40s. Felt the "superpowers" about 4 days in. Increased confidence. Public speaking got a lot easier. The 'powers' go down after sex, which is good and bad. Good cause the sex is amazing now. My ED and DE (delayed ejaculation) is totally gone now.
This is the Baron, checking in at my 130 day marker. So far, I suppose I've seen some changes. When I first stopped PMO it was because I realized that it has been a major influence in my life for a long time, both sexually and non-sexually.
Before this streak of 77 days or whatever I'm on, I had been relapsing pretty badly, I even wrote in my journal about it. I'd completely fallen off the wagon and was in a general spiral of self destruction and malcontent. I know we've all been there so I will spare the details :p. I decided for the 5th time or so this year that enough was enough and this time it stuck
Before rebooting I was VERY anxious, panic attacks, hypochondria, depressive and obsessive thoughts. I was fapping like 1 times a day or other day just for pleasure and because i was bored. When I didn't had something to do, searching for a perfect video was like heaven.
24 years old. Hardmode. At day 21 and day 25 I dry humped a girl and orgasmed. Watched porn maybe 7 to 8 times and edged accordingly, with regret because it does slow down progress. You can feel this afterwards when you walk down the street and look at girls.
