I’m 25. I was more or less a social recluse and now I navigate interactions effortlessly. I think the added time and energy is the biggest benefit, personally. That contributes to everything. Social skills, fitness, and really anything else is that much easier to learn when you have that extra time and energy.
I haven’t been on this sub in a long time. Happily. I haven’t needed it but I want to share what worked for me for any of you it might help.
It’s just a simple mindset change that works with most if not all addictions (for me anyway). Instead of “I’m not going to masturbate any more” change that to “I don’t masturbate.” It’s a small change but if fap is something you just don’t do, it’s easy to say that when you’re considering.
