I’ve been going for seventeen weeks now, my previously longest streak was 13 days, although I wasn’t fully committed then. I asked her out.
I haven’t made a post until now because I feel nothing significant enough has happened worth posting. Motivation to keep going has been adequately handled by others, thought that doesn’t mean I won’t contribute in the future. Also some of my experiences with friends in trying to convince them to nofap haven’t been the most positive. I have been able to convince a couple of friends and that has been extremely positive. But some friends have led me to the attitude of “If I’m trying this hard to help you and you still want your life to be shit, then fuck you”.
But what has prompted me to speak out is the most significant experience resulting from my new lifestyle. I am not lying to you when I say this has been the single hardest thing of my life. I am aware of the faulty nature of memory and that we place emphasis on the more recent ones, but as I know I have never done anything like this, not even in a dream, I am fairly certain in saying this is the hardest thing I have ever done.
She has a partner, but now I know. And I did it.
