13 months NoFap/semen retention and how it changed My life forever!!

Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Deleted Account, Aug 22, 2018.

  1. Captain Rex reporting. Hello all you fapstronauts! It's been 13 months and I can't tell you how much it changed my life! It was one hell of a journey and it was worth all the effort!

    Anyways, I've been eager to make this thread for as long as I can remember but I ended up having a hellishly long flatline which lasted 8 months and my insomnia that I developed persisted afterwards. Thankfully, it's gotten much better and I'm going to see a therapist in a few days which is good.

    So, these are all the life changing benefits I experienced from the lifestyle which includes:

    1. Increased confidence: I was a little bitch back then, now I am respected by men and desired by women. My sense of humor has also improved tenfold.
    2. Attraction: This is my favorite benefit because I'm now desirable by women. I even had one ask me out but I felt guilty of friendzoning her. Either way, this never happened before.
    3. More energy: I now feel like an Sith apprentice whenever I'm doing physical activity like martial arts. Back then, I was basically a living zombie with no focus. Now, I really want to do martial arts again!
    4. Better looks: This is probably the reason women are attracted to me more than ever. I have far less acne now as opposed to back then and my skin looks cleaner which is neat.
    5. Pleasure from little things: I no longer feel dependent on PMO/women to get my pleasure. Hell, I don't even need to have sex. I can just go outside at night and look for frogs or catch lizards at day. I now see the beauty of nature as opposed to back then. It feels good getting fresh air.
    6. Sex drive: Now, I find myself getting hard boners pretty often. In fact, I even find myself getting precum just from talking to women. It's crazy shit, let me tell you that.
    7. Restored sexuality: I no longer have this dark, twisted view of the opposite sex which I had from PMO. In fact, I don't find myself so needy and desperate for female attention anymore. I see far more to life than sex now. I'm no longer bound by the pussy spell anymore.

    These are just a few of the benefits I experienced from this wonderful lifestyle so far. There's more but those are the more important ones that I listed.

    Now, as for why I never relapsed. The reason is because I have these healthy habits that I do which are pretty much necessary for success. These include:

    Eating healthier: No, I'm not a vegan or a fruitarian or anything like that. It's not necessary to cut out meat. I still eat meat and sometimes junk food every now and then but it's necessary to at least limit sugar.
    Meditation: This is absolutely necessary for Nofap. This and Nofap go hand in hand for good reason. It not only makes you more peaceful, but it also stops unwanted sexual energy from building up, which causes relapses. It's really simple, and I highly recommend It!
    Drinking plenty of water: You'll want to drink a decent amount of water, at least a couple bottles a day. It's great for detoxing and it's just good for you in general. After all, 60% of our body is water.
    Getting good night's sleep: Sadly, I ended up developing insomnia likely during the flatline but like I said, it's getting much better now. It's important to have good sleeping habits when it comes to Nofap. A good example is not using the damn phone before bed (that obviously causes relapses)!
    Exercise: This is also necessary for Nofap because sitting on the desk all day will likely cause relapses. If you don't have access to a gym, at least start running or maybe buy weights so you can pump irons anytime. Hell, I even done this before NoFap so what are you waiting for? DO IT!!

    God man, this post is just exhausting to write. The reason that I didn't include my background story is because it would just make this post so unnecessarily long. I will make a success story with my story later on, so stay tuned!

    In the mean time, Captain Rex, out.

  11. The biggest symptoms I experienced was definitely the lack of sex drive, as well as depression and anxiety. Thankfully, that's no more now. I did experience dry mouth as well but it was only temporary and I doubt that was withdrawal.

    I'm glad it's over now. Going through that phase was absolute hell, especially during the middle. Life is now almost living up to how I want it and that's good.

  15. Well, I think it ended suddenly because when that finally happened, I was met with a huge wave of urges and nearly relapsed a bunch of times. Thankfully, I didn't or else I would probably end up in the addiction again and do the reboot ALL OVER AGAIN.

    So yeah, I believe it ends differently for certain people but what I do know is that when you start getting huge urges, it's a sign that the flatline is pretty much over and your libido will go back to normal afterwards. So keep going!

    @Captain Rex your words are valuable man!
    May I ask how old you are and how long did you PMO?
    I apologize for asking so many questions but your case seems to light my path towards recovery and got me excited.
  19. In case you didn't know, I'm 16 now since my birthday happened last month. I discovered Nofap shortly after turning 15. And as for how long I was addicted. I was 12 when I first discovered fapping off and then when I was 14, I discovered porn. So, I was only addicted for about 3 years until I realized that I was an addict and I discovered Nofap shortly afterwards. I also didn't join the forums until about 3 months into the lifestyle.

    So yeah, I wasn't an addict for very long and I feel lucky to have discovered this forum. God bless Nofap!
