It sucks that nofap helps tremendously with my social anxiety, low self esteem, low motivation. It sucks that it gives me confidence, energy, better skin. Why did I think this? Because at some point I knew I was going to fail and lose all of this and feel like shit again. Nofap felt like a temporary thing rather than a new lifestyle. I subconsciously knew i would return to my “default” self.
Now, I think it’s awesome that NoFap works. That nofap has given me everything I’ve lacked as a male. I feel stronger and more like a “real man” and it feels like a permanent change rather than temporary.
