First of all excuse me for my English, I am not a native speaker. Just wanted to share my story with all of you, as I know many of us are struggling.
I am 28 years old. Have been a long time lurker here. I was introduced to NOFAP in October 2013, mainly because i felt that pornography and masturbation was a problem in my life, had no sex since about fall of 2008… At first it was difficult, but challenging myself, I discovered that i was fapping not actually, because I was somehow sexually deprived, but when I felt anxious, depressed or any other negative feelings, that are normal human experiences. Thus masturbating was a manner to escape those feelings by numbing myself. I don’t want to go into the details of the journey; at times it was difficult, the other times quite awesome. In short – just don’t fap, and don’t watch pornography. It won’t fix all your problems, but it will help you.
I will describe my current situation now.
About one month ago I met this amazing girl. Almost instantly we felt some deep connection. She’s smart, pretty, has a great sense of humor (she’s also 6 years younger). We already had sex (and believe me it was amazing) and the things are moving slowly, but intensely. About a week ago she told me she never felt such passion for a man before, never felt so connected spiritually with another human being, and that she can share her experience like with no one before. I feel the same. Today I am a very happy man… who knows what future will bring.
I did not masturbate for 4 months, I actually lost a count, and I don’t care 🙂
Thank you NOFAP and all the beautiful people who want to become better persons! Thanks.
