I want to thank each and every one of you guys out there, without you guys I would have NEVER even made it past day one. Now here is a brief introduction to who I am.
I am a 16yr old male, I live about a 45-minute drive away from Los Angeles California, and have been PMOing for around 5 to 6 years. So, before I began Nofap my life was really wack. I was so tired all the time, I was always nervous and anxious, especially around girls, I was always in bad health, I always seemed to have the flu or a cold, then as I entered High School I just got really depressed.
Furthermore, I was also scared of something, like something was standing in the dark, even in my house, and I seemed to have very low energy spiritually, mentally, emotional, and physically. Now, I did not hit day 90 in my first try. I relapsed MANY times, in fact I can’t even count how many times I failed.
So, with all that being said here are some of the benefits that I have witnessed:
- A TON more energy,
- my eyes are much more alive,
- social anxiety is almost gone,
- I just don’t care about what other people think of me,
- I am much more confident now,
- I have much more self-esteem, people respect me more,
- I am much more spiritual now,
- I am no longer scared of dark places or going out all alone in the night(I just have to watch my back),
- my beard hairs are going crazy the first thing new people I meet say to me is that I need to shave,
- my motivation to do things are much higher like if I have to do chores I just do them without making a fuss.
There are much more things however I can’t entirely recall them at the moment.
Here is what I changed in my life because of NoFap:
cold showers, no more junk food, cut out foods with too much sugar, only watched TV on Fridays or Saturdays, deleted apps that had a negative impact on my life (Instagram, snapchat, etc.), meditated on a daily basis, focused on the current moment and on what I was currently doing(for example, if I was doing the dishes I would not think of other things only doing the dishes), I wake up around 5:30 AM, sleep by 10:00 PM, stopped talking to friends who were not positive or helpful, stopped playing video games, and in the evening I would either go for a walk, play basketball, or ride my bike, I subscribed and started watching a nofap YouTube channel (Captain Sinbad), lastly I also spent some time alone during the day to re-center myself.
Sorry if I made this a really long post this is the first time, I made a post, before I only responded by commenting. And for those of you guys who are just starting or think going up to 90 days is really difficult, to you I say don’t worry just keeping on going, if you relapse it’s okay just get back up again,
And if you keep on relapsing because of porn like I did, just do your computer hard! No, just kidding, download a porn blocker.
Thanks all you guys for reading this (if you made it this far), and if you have any questions feel free to ask, I will be answering to ALL of them.
Best of luck
