I started NoFap in January, relapsed about 5-6 times and finally managed to go on my longest streak(last one being 16 days) and everything went uphill from here. I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while, but I wanted to experience it a little before doing so to make sure that it wasn’t temporary.
On my 8th day of this streak, I met a girl with whom I felt very connected. I have never had problems with girls, I’ve been with a few and I was ready to give up on dating because I thought I would never meet anyone who met my standards in terms of personality, but I met her and she was everything that I dreamed of in a women. We’ve been together for over a month and everything is going amazingly well. I have never gotten so attached to someone in this little amount of time and I’ve been with quite a few people.
3 days into our relationship I made the best decision I had ever made and I told her about NoFap. She was extremely supportive and even decided to start doing it with me(cold showers too). This transparency made us bond much quicker and we became extremely comfortable around one another very quickly. She made NoFap extremely easy for me and I have never been happier in my life.
On top of all that, I also decided to make a career change. I wasn’t necessarily unhappy with what I was doing, but I wasn’t happy either and I didn’t see myself doing it for the rest of my life. Both NoFap and her gave me the balls to really do something about it. I’ve been seeing a counselor for the past 2 weeks in order to help me choose the right path and I feel like I’m very very close.
Some of the benefits I’ve experienced:
-A lot more energy with a lot less sleep
-Clearer skin (due to cold showers)
-More colorful skin (Semen retention)
-Stronger emotions, as much positive as negative
-Motivation really spiked since I met her, so I don’t give all the credit to NoFap, but I’m sure it played a part in it
-Improved body language and positive aura, I definitely sense that people respect me a lot more and enjoy being around me.
I’m 22 and I decided to start NoFap because I was hoping that it would be the cure to my constant procrastination and lack of motivation. I think the most important benefit you get from doing NoFap is the energy surge which can be incredibly useful when applied properly.
I’m really happy with the results so far and hopefully things keep going uphill from here :).
