Hi /r/nofap !

I've done it. For the second time.

I started no fap a while ago. After some failed streak, I reached 90 days a year ago. Then some rough break up, changes in my routine, a move abroad made me relapse. 90 days ago, I decided to do it again.

Galvanized by the fact that I already did it once, this time was much easier.

I consider myself cured from PMO, though, like a recovering alcoholic, I must always be careful for triggers.

My goal was always to stop porn, not to prevent myself from "healthy" masturbation. So from now on, I'll allow myself to MO once a week, without porn, obviousely.

Some things I've found along the way:

  • Doing nofap for the sake of it does not work. nofapping is not an end in itself, but a way towards a end. Which end? you get to define it. Be healthier, stop procrastinating, get a tasty life, you name it.
  • Will is like a muscle, it is trained through perseverance.
  • Success is easier if there are other things you force yourself to do on top of nofap: work out, run, keep a healthy diet, refrain yourself from your other addictions etc.

I'd like to thank you all for the messages, the links, and the motivation to continue on this life changing journey.

Farewell !
