Age 23 - More confidence, less social anxiety. I am more comfortable with myself

Printer-friendly version

I have been doing the hard mode /r/nofap challenge for about a year, and I have finally made it to 90 days in a row! I can't believe it, and I didn't think I would be able to make it this year.

Benefits:

  • More confidence and less social anxiety. I am more comfortable with myself.
  • More energy. I feel like my sleep pattern has become much more consistent, and I have more energy for day to day tasks.
  • I feel so pure. After a relapse, feel so dirty, guilty, and disgusting. On a long streak, you gain a sense of purity, and you see the world in a different way. Taking cold showers also gives this feeling.

Cons

  • Feeling sexually frustrated
  • Blue balls after urges
  • Emotions are all over the place. Some days I felt on top of the world, and other days I felt really depressed, and even cried on a few occasions.

Changing My Life

When you make a choice to change your life for the better, you follow up with making more changes. Since practicing /r/nofap for the past year, I have:

  • Gone back to study
  • Joined the gym (highly recommended!), working out about 4 times a week
  • Started working on a few personal projects
  • Made more time for friends and hobbies
  • Doing a lot more reading (mainly self-improvement books)

Thank you all so much!

I would like to thank all of you for your invaluable encouragement and advice. I highly recommend doing the 90 day challenge, it is totally worth it. For all of you struggling - hang in there! You'll get there before you know it if you just stay disciplined.
