It was hard to believe this day would come but it’s finally here. I basically just wanted to talk about my journey. I’m a sixteen-year old kid that used to masturbate almost every day. Essentially I realized I needed to stop when I was sitting on my hand to make it numb so that it would feel better when I jerked off. That night was my first night I began no fap.
I want to go over all the ways my life has changed in the past 90 days and all the benefits I’ve gained.
Brain fog: my brain fog is essentially gone; it’s much easier to focus on school now. Marks have never been my problem but staying focused and motivated has.
Motivation: my motivation these days is higher than I think it’s ever been. I have a lot on my plate but I’m still able to get it all done. I take a cold shower every day in the morning and feel great.
Confidence: my confidence has actually went through the roof. I’ve been putting my hand up in class more and taking risks socially. Talking to people I don’t know is something I would never do before but now it’s much easier. Another thing that ties in with this point is that I don’t give a shit about what people think of me. I know that I’m being the best me I can be and I’m happy, what other people think doesn’t really matter.
I actually have a girlfriend now: we had been really good friends for months and really bonded just as friends first. We became really close and it was the first meaningful relationship I’ve had with someone outside of my brother. Over time I grew to be more and more attracted to her romantically. One day I told her my feelings and she said she shared them as well.
We’ve been dating for long over a month now and things are wicked. She’s my best friend and I couldn’t be happier with the way things worked out. I was going on 89 days of hard mode until last night, if you know what I mean 😉
Sorry for the long post, if you read this far I appreciate it. I hope some of you can take something out of it, even if it’s just one thing.
I’d also like to thank you guys, you kept me going on the rough days for sure
