I realised a few things, and i wanted to share some of these findings which are less spoken about on this group. Waking up is so much easier. As someone who has long term depression, getting out of bed in the morning to go to work is the hardest part of the day, and getting back into bed at night is usually the best.
Since nofap i literally bounce awake with so much energy – in fact my body wakes me up before the alarm even goes off. This is better than any coffee, or any other stimulant ever. Nofap is worth it for this alone
Nofap was that gap between me and every other guy i saw. I work a good job, am in good shape, have a good family but I always felt there being a gap so to speak between myself and other guys, something i couldn’t place. I would look up to the ones i respected and thought i could never be as good as them. Nofap makes me feel – i’m as good as anyone, and I’m going to work my ass off towards my goals so that one day when i achieve my goals, I have a right to walk around with my head held high. I finally feel ‘normal’ and i wouldnt trade this feeling for the world, let alone a fap.
I broke up with a girl around a year ago because she started seeing someone else, and I found out yesterday that she is going to move in with him. As the only girl i’ve ever been in love with, I know that i would have been crushed normally, spending all day stalking her and her boyfriend on facebook, thinking negative thoughts, and doing everything that is the opposite of commanding respect. I’m not going to pretend the news didn’t affect me, but I decided not to let it bother me and to it use it to fuel my life when i’m lacking motivation. A lot of this has to do with positive thinking and maintaining a good mindset, but I feel that nofap has a significant role to play as well.
The point i’m trying to make is that because i was on nofap and because i had a healthy mindset, when i heard this news yesterday, i responded to it like a man and carried on working even harder towards my life. Who knows what challenges lie ahead tomorrow, and nofap allowed me to face something i would have been devastated by normally in a positive way.
Even if outsiders find it hard to believe the positive effects, here’s something that proves how useful it is. For most of us here fapping is the main source of pure pleasure we would experience on a daily basis, and for a lot of us without girlfriends or boyfriends – our only source of sexual release. By abstaining from your favourite thing in the day in the hope that tomorrow will be brighter because of it, you are telling your mind that you are in control of your life.
(I know its a long text but i needed to get it off my chest, and this is one of the most positive and encouraging online communities i’ve witnessed. Normally i would have been really cynical to share something like this on the internet, but life’s too short to worry about stupid things like that all the time. I hope to become a more positive person because, as much as i hate the way it’s marketed as some recent discovery or miracle pill, i genuinely do believe the philosophy behind the law of attraction. I had periods in my life where i only thought negative things and only negative things happened to me. The points in my life where i didn’t let the negativity grab hold of me and forced myself to be optimistic, something good always happened to me. Cheers for reading)
