[–]gotfireback Answer:

I have been drinking the porn poison for 18 years and as a result my motivation for life, general optimism and passion were all casualties of the addiction. I lost my way and lost my vision for life. Spending so much time close to a computer screen, obsessing about 'pixels' can also cause myopia. So the vision thing is (1) literal: it worsens your eyesight and (2)metaphorical: you can see the life worth living... More money is linked to a few of the reasons for change. Poor impulse control will burn money period. NoFap is about impulse control and delaying gratification. Those 2 things open up the possibility for me to save more cash, invest better and generate more wealth (innovation, creativity etc...)

Please advise, I have an extreamly low testosterone, have used porn since I was about 14 and now I'm 34 years old, is there a possibility that this is the reason to have 98 ng/dl level of total testosterone when I was 30 years old?... When younger I would fab on average about 2 to 3 times per day, even up to my 25th birthday... Any advice or idea of what could be my problem??.... I'm a very low income individual and since my test at 30 years old I started using Clomid on and off like on for 2 or 3 months and off for 2 months or so... I'm affraid of possibly finding some side effects in the future, that could really end up ruinning my life completely, was on anti depressants and anti anxiaty for the last 2 years, since my thoughts of suicide was extreamly constant... Please someone tell me how can I find help, I don't even have health insurance.
