282 days ago, I would have fapped 2-5 times a day, imagine girls in my bed, weird fetishes, but it changed a lot. Motivational quotes had no impact on me. I disliked writing in a journal every day. Your typical 16 years old guy playing video games, fapping, and staying lonely avoiding talking to girls, rather shy with everyone. Well all of that changed believe me. My personal kind of motivation was WORKING OUT.
Yes, I will say it again, that thing changed my entire life.
People claimed that in order to not masturbate, you had to distract yourself with something ,and I had video games, but meh, didn’t really distract but for a couple o’ days. Then fapped again, and I was like “goddamnit I will never get rid of this addiction”. Went sad-mode fapping again. Until one day, I came across 2 quotes that might be the only 2 I have ever understood and motivated me, saying:
“the true power of us human beings is that we can change ourselves on our own” ; “If you really want to become strong, stop caring about what others think about you. Living your life has nothing to do with what others think.”
In other words, we have the power to change ourselves on our own, without anybody’s help. It’s all about YOU.
I was a skinny guy, always wanted to build muscle, even went to the gym, but I couldn’t do it for more than a month, because I would give up, then go for a month again thinking I’m motivated again, but then life happens, you get sick, you can’t continue for a week – it destroys your progress, you give up. That was me over and over again.
The addiction to fap got me motivated to work out. It got me so motivated. All I’d do an entire week is think about what can I do to change the way I look – to get muscular. I even forgot to fap, because my mind was preoccupied with it. Since that week I begged my parents to make me a BAR in our back yard. Never have I ever thought about fapping. I got a cross bar, started working out, watched tons of videos about nutrition, and any other stuff.
I started seeing results after 1 month. In that month I was so motivated to do all those crazy stuff on the bar, especially the muscle-up. I spent countless nights looking at nutrition stuff, having my mind focused on that, till a moment, a very hard moment, scrolled up facebook, saw some girl with her tits nearly popping out of her bra, and I felt it, the urge to fap after so long. I think it was like 2 weeks into NoFap,. It felt so bad I was nearly losing my breath. But before my hand reached my pants I said: “will this change the way I look? Will it be worth it? No it won’t. But it won’t hurt just once in such a long time. And for some reason I managed to stop. Closed the facebook tab, went to wash my face, do something else.
After I saw the results from 1 month of street workout, I became addicted to it. I loved the results. I loved the feeling after the work out, I loved smiling like a retard for hours after a good workout. That adrenaline. All those kept me going until today. I am still addicted to results. Even small achievements. That’s what keeps me going. That I know I did 1 more muscle-up than the last time, or I had 3 more seconds into L-Sit.
I will honestly tell you,that all these feelings I just said up there,are way more better than the feeling you would get from fapping,because you don’t get happy for a couple of seconds,you will be happy for the rest of your life
Ever since that month and until today, I had erased my memory about fapping, about fetishes, became a better person. I made lots of friends because the way I look now sincerely. People are really curious how I became the person I am now – The no-more-shy-guy who wouldn’t talk to anyone. I am rather talkative now. I like telling people how I did it. How I changed my life. My training routines. I even have a group of friends who hang out every day to the street park to work out, no longer afraid to talk to girls. Seriously, being pretty muscular gives me a boost of confidence .
That’s all I have to say.
