I want to thank you guys for turning my life around. Although I stopped taking part in NoFap a few months ago, I’m still seeing the benefits today. I’ve got an incredible SO who I’ve been with for four months now, the courage to stand up for myself, and the ability to look complete strangers in the eye and hold meaningful conversations.
At the start of 2015 I was PMO’ing twice a day and spending days at a time indoors. Coming into 2016 I’m only PMO’ing twice a week, and getting out to ride my bike and visit my SO at least 3 times a week. If it weren’t for NoFap I’d be in the same depressing rut I was in a year ago, so thank you guys so much for pulling me out of that rut. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you.
Edit: A lot of you seem to be confused as to why I’d be comfortable with PMO’ing twice a week so let me clear that up. After meeting my lovely SO and losing my virginity it quickly became apparent that if I wanted to have longer sex, I’d have to start MO’ing again. Although I was reluctant at first, after about a month of MO’ing I realised that masturbation in moderate amounts was not going to kill me. I PMO twice a week and am still feeling the way I did when I hit my longest streaks. I’m not saying that it’s okay for you to MO in small amounts because it might not be, and you could easily slip back into your old habits. But for me, I came to the realisation that it’s fine as long as it’s in moderation.
