Back Then: Back in the days, especially during 2015/2016, I was heavily involved in watching porn, and masturbating excessively. It felt like the easy way out as doing PMO allowed me to experience few seconds of ultimate happiness, and helped me forget about my responsibilities.
I didn’t put much thought into it until I realized that my education was going downhill real fast. I was at the verge of failing and getting terminated from university. And the more stressed I got, the more I used to lock my doors and spend time watching porn.
In short: I needed to change before things turned for the worse.
And Now: One thing led to another and I tumbled upon this subreddit. And now, here I am letting you guys know that I have completed 1 year of No-PMO, and you guys can do it too!
If I can do it on hard-mode then you have NO excuses. Either you really want to go through this change or you don’t. Let me remind you all that No-PMO is just the beginning, there are so many things to do, and so much to accomplish.
Here is my CGPA progression before and after No-PMO:
Know Your Enemies:
- Social Media sites like Facebook, Instagram- I thought I figured it all out but I realized that these social media sites can waste just as much time as PMO.
Hence to test myself, I decided to go 1 whole month without using any of these sites just to find out that browsing the internet mindlessly is just as bad.
- Excuses- The first time I started No-PMO was on January 5th 2017 but after a mere 15 days I relapsed. I thought maybe taking a peek wouldn’t hurt but I was wrong.
Just don’t use excuses like masturbating once wouldn’t hurt or it won’t bother. If you have so much control then please test yourself and see if you can live without masturbating for a year.
Conclusion: I originally planned to do No-PMO for a year and then maybe relapse and chill out like old times. But I have decided to continue it as long as possible.
Lastly, I have said this on my earlier post, and I am going to say it again: All you need is strong willpower and you are good to go.
PS: Feel free to ask anything
I am 23 years old.
Other benefits would be I have less social anxiety now. Also, drastic increase in energy level as well as confidence. Long walks feels much more enjoyable. And most importantly you’ll feel natural.
