I’m 18 and started PMOing when I was a freshmen in high school. It began with a girl. For the first time in my life, I actually had something going with someone and I was absolutely overjoyed because I had a giant crush on her. So, I ask her on a date which went quite well and then, the next morning, she puts me in the dreaded friend zone.
I basically got depressed for a solid month and a half because of this and it didn’t make it easier seeing as we were also classmates and saw each other on a daily basis. So, one day (in hopes of getting her back) I decided that I was going to improve my overall quality in life in regards to fashion, my physical body and then somehow, I stumbled upon this sub-Reddit and discovered all of these amazing stories about guys attracting girls while on nofap. That is how I started.
It wasn’t easy starting out, although I began to see that my streaks kept building up. My first streak was a solid two day streak, followed by a four day streak, then a couple of 5 day ones until I got to one week. For those of you just starting or have yet to reach this week mark, I can’t tell you how happy and proud I was just to reach that milestone (I’ll get to the benefits I noticed later) and because of this, I was able to make it to two weeks. Then, after my second two week streak, I was able to get on my longest streak of 120 days without PMOing. Now, that was three weeks ago and since then, I have relapsed four times and have yet to get past 7 days again. I don’t consider all of my progress lost but, I don’t know exactly where I stand because of these setbacks. Honestly though, during my 120 day streak, I felt the greatest I had ever been in a long while.
Now to segment everyone usually reads for, at least from my experience, THE BENEFITS. Over this journey, I experienced the following:
- Loss of brain fog
- More mental clarity
- More enjoyment from the small things in life
- A METRIC TON OF CONFIDENCE
- A lot more physical energy
- Better interactions with women, it’s a lot easier to look at their eyes as opposed to elsewhere
- More respect from other men, usually from confidence
- And the overall joy of keeping your hands clean of something naughty.
- Also, social anxiety is completely gone on nofap
Anyway, that’s my experience with nofap, for those of you that read all of this, I applaud, sorry if there are any grammatical errors, I’m just typing my heart out. Thanks again
