I was skeptical at first but I decided to just try it out because I had nothing better to do and figured if I took a tolerance break it would be great once I went back. At first I was astonished by how challenging it was
to consciously deny the urge to PMO but it became an opportunity for me to see how disciplined I could become. It was honestly quite difficult especially since I had a habit of masturbating every time I felt like it, but I kept going.
Around 3 weeks in I noticed that I became stronger both mentally and physically by fighting the impulses I had consistently surrendered to, and I truly believe that nofap has played a key role in my self improvement and has helped me become a better person.
I understand that it’s not for everyone and I do believe that masturbation can be helpful in some situations, but if you’re someone who wants to walk the path of self mastery and self discovery then you should challenge yourself and see if you’ve got what it takes.

Watching porn and masturbating acts as a constant loop that depletes our raw sexual nature and circumvents us from having to work for sex like nature intended.
We live in a world where a fantasy is being sold to us in the forms of advertising, media, and eccentric celebrities that we idolize since we’re young. Pay attention to any time you see a magazine cover or commercial that entices you to a product by pertaining to your sexuality and realize that you are being played.
Our sexuality is being stimulated on such a constant basis that the easiest way for us to adapt is by giving up our evolutionary urge to desire sex and instead choose a simulated experience with porn and masturbation. The cycle of this process leaves our sexuality in a perpetually exhausted state. How ironic, living in a hyper-sexualized society we have become less sexual humans.
It is a war that too many of us don’t realize we’re fighting. The enemy is powerful and invisible, and each battle is within us.
The drive to procreate is ancient and primal. It has led us to do extraordinary things as a species. Do not sacrifice what evolution has given you to be desensitized to life. Rise above.
