I just want to post a short thread up about my progress to date and the changes I have experienced. I have been dealing with a problem of PMO for about 8 years now. I am 26 years old. This problem became so bad over the last year that is made me quite down in myself. I forgot who the real me was and became very introverted and socially awkward. I became shy and stopped doing things socially unless it was going out drinking with friends.
I started NoFap when myself and my girlfriend broke up in March. We didn’t break up because of my problem but I am sure that is definitely did not enhance our relationship. It was after we broke up that I realised I needed to change my life. The forums have helped me no end and reading other peoples success stories inspired me to have my own success story. All I wanted was to be able to reach 30/40/90 days like other people on this.
I had a couple of relapses at the beginning which got me extremely down as I felt I would never defeat this problem. But thanks to people’s helpful advice and support, and my own determination to be rid of this evil for once and for all I am now 51 days clean.
I have NEVER felt better in myself. I am living life to the full each day with no thoughts of Porn. I have found myself again. I am back to the old me, full of confidence and trying new things and meeting new people. My brothers are all telling me they have never seen me looking better and have never seen me happier in myself. I met a girl last weekend and it’s fair to say I was punching above my weight with her. She is without doubt the hottest girl I have ever been with. Unfortunately she isn’t from around here and is gone back home now but meeting this girl and having fun the way I used to be able to has shown me how far I have come in my recovery.
I am off to Abu Dhabi in 3 weeks to begin a new chapter in my life and it could not be coming at a better time for me. I know I still have a long way to go and it will be a while yet before I am fully rid of the symptoms of PMO but I just wanted to share how much better my life has become without it. Everyone on this always said wait until you feel it you will never want to go back to where you were.
Well now I can feel it and I sure as hell am never going back!!!
