I’m on 450 days of Nofap so far. The following steps help me a lot in the early days:
- intermittent fasting,
- I totally quit social media since then. The first days are really tough,
- I also set parent control in my iPhone. It really helps a lot because phone gives a very quick access to porn sites.
Blue balls are pain at the beginning. When I reached around 60 days I started to get flatlines, that’s where your mind shuts down, no sexual desire at all and the feel of anger. I had flatlines for almost 6 months.
The benefits are real:
- eye contact improves, especially when I am talking to girls I enjoy looking at their eyes it gives me a feeling of happiness
- I sleep for less hours and I feel good
- my confidence soared, social anxiety is gone
- and finally I enjoy talking to girls since I no longer look at them as sex objects,
The Journey is still going on. I hope this gives you some encouragement guys because if I can do it, I am pretty sure everyone else can.
