I’m 20. Symptoms were just that I was doing it too often. It was taking over too much of my life and every time I did it I’d just feel sh*t. Also, I feel it was contributing to my shyness. I wanted to prove to myself that I wasn’t addicted but I kept relapsing so I clearly was, which I didn’t like. I was using it like a drug. I now feel more free and my confidence seems to be improving. Finding real women more naturally attractive again is another bonus. Good luck with it mate.
After years and years of trying, I’ve finally bloody done it! 90 days done. How? Well to begin with I switched to a healthy diet which I believe helped no end. Once you introduce one good habit, others seem to follow. You start to feel healthy and as a result happier with yourself and want to make sure that continues and progresses into other areas of your life.
What I would say is: 1. Never give up, you will succeed eventually. I’ve been trying to reach 90 days for about 6 years now and this is the first time I’ve ever succeeded. Persevere! 2. Try to find out what is causing you to fap and try to tackle it*. Often the cause of the addiction is rooted in some sort of inner sadness. I personally was suffering from a disease and taking lots of meds causing me to never feel healthy, which consequently made me quite miserable sometimes. I used fapping as an escape. Luckily, I found an online community which had treated the illness with diet. I switched to a healthy diet and my symptoms eventually disappeared, without the use of meds, (this was a long process, but well worth it!) Now I feel healthy and happy and want that to last. I won’t let porn destroy this feeling of true wellbeing. *I realise this is a lot easier said than done. Try all you can.
You CAN do it, no matter how long it takes. You CAN! I am proof of that. After every relapse just keep buggering on. 🙂
