I’ve been trying nofap for about a year now. My longest streak was 81 days and after that I’ve never made it past 2 months. I was never a person to fap multiple times a day. Even so, one day something just clicked whilst watching porn. I thought to myself, ‘why am I doing this? What’s the point?’. Eventually I discovered nofap.
My current streak has only been around 5 weeks but today I decided I’d check out some porn due to boredom. And it did absolutely nothing for me. Didn’t turn me on whatsoever.
Since I’ve started nofap I’ve imroved myself so much both physically an mentally. I now have a girlfriend and after thinking about jerking off, or watching porn I came to realise… What’s the point? Why would I do that when I have a real girl who loves me? Hopefully that’s goodbye to porn forever.
I mentioned [my girlfriend] because she’s a real source of motivation for me. Actually having someone like that in my life makes me want to be a better person for them. I was trying to show that real people will always be better than any form of porn.
I never believed I’d be able to resist PMO completely, but I still tried. This is what all this is about. Not giving up. I didn’t give up, even after relapsing countless times and I finally believe I’ve succeeded.
I’m 17, and I’ve been using porn for around 4 years. I’m glad I found this community early.
I can’t wait to see what’s next on the nofap journey. Thank you for reading.
