I did it! I actually made it to 90 days! After so many attempts, so many incidents where I could have fallen down and relapsed, after enduring so many urges and traps. I’ve made it! Returning to school this year is definitely a different experience, as I’m more sociable and less conscious on what people think of me since I’ve stopped!
My urges used to be extremely crazy and after the first 2 to 3 weeks it gets much easier (a vacation helped with this). I’ve also noticed that I’m less socially awkward around unknown people and I also look at women as human beings like us.
I’m not afraid to start a conversation and when I was around my crush last week (got turned down) I wasn’t even nervous, talked to her like a friend. My crush on her actually has started to wane since I see all as human now and not just bodies. Oh, and I give less crap about what people think of me and have become more productive in terms of work and projects.
I can’t believe I made it, I’m almost starting to tear up with tears of joy. Now that I’ve hit 90 days, it’s safe to say…
I never want to PMO again.
I never thought my well-being would improve without it! PMO hides your true potential, it really does. Abstaining changes your perspective on life for the better!
I would like to thank all of the inspirational posts on here daily, all of the tips and tricks to avoid PMO, the positivity of the community, and basically NoFap for existing! Without finding this subreddit I don’t know where I’d be. Thank you, and I wish you all the best of luck!
If I can do it, you can too! You may have some bumps along the way like me, but it’s possible!
I’m 21 years old. The reason for NoFap is actually a sad one, and it’s kind of for religious reasons. To be more specific, one of my close friends passed away last October in a drowning.
My reason for attempting NoFap is so that when I die, whether masturbation is a sin or not, I can be with my friend and not be held back by this behavior. Furthermore, he would want me to better myself if I can so that would probably be one of my motivators to keep me going.
As for any other benefits, basically a greater sense of well-being physically, and mentally
