14 days look so little compared to other guys’ over-a-year strea

  1. Just to express how small my achievement looks compared to over a year streaks...

  2. But one day you will be that person with the year long streak. Nothing comes easy in life.

    dude 14 days is an AWESOME accomplishment. Be wary of comparing yourselves to others - it's always a matter of perspective. There are guys who read your 14 day post report and think 'man, I would LOVE to be that guy and get out of my 1-day and 2-day streaks'! Celebrate YOU!

    Two weeks is pretty much the necessary starting length of a streak you need to get anywhere. As an experienced fapstronaut, believe me when I tell you this! From now you can go anywhere. Just remain strong and persistent, and soon you will have achieved a month, and so on...

    I'm on day 3, so two weeks looks good from here. Keep up the good work!

    Mate, making it to 14 days is fantastic. I only ever did it once. I've been struggling to even get to day 5 at the moment. I should feel pathetic.

  8. It's a one-day-at-a-time reality here! Some days are easy and some days are challenging, but long streaks are truly earned. One guy on this site had a streak of no PM for 3 years before relapsing! Now his day-counter reads 3 days. Which goes to show you that high numbers do not reflect 'easy street' and 'downhill all the way'! Once freedom is earned, the fight must be continuous to maintain it.

    Menross, consider this perspective: You are one of only a tiny fraction of men on this planet that would even dare the challenge that you have taken on and succeeded! I wouldn't blame you if you felt all smug and superior.

    I'm on 13 days and today I managed to have actual sex for the first time in months having started my streak after one of many failures. Nofap in any degree is a benefit to your life, and even what seems like a small streak can be big progress. I feel on top of the world right now and you'll get there too once you're ready :) for me I think it was more anxiety induced than PIED but even just two weeks of abstinence from porn and I'm seeing a world of difference so don't worry, stick at it :).
     
  15. Oh my god! All these encouraging messages!!!!Thank you so much! I have one question. If I ever get sex while I am on the streak, is this a setback?

    Depends on your personal goal. It's considered a setback on hard mode PMO but not necessarily on a no PM and is probably a good thing because it's rewiring your brain for real human intimacy instead of pixel people :)

  17. Nowadays I try to only compare for the purpose of inspiration :)... doesnt always go like that, but i try to remind myself of it.

    I agree with Ornstein. It is about what you need out of this. Others will disagree. I'm all about getting back to a normal healthy sex life. In the absence of that I am de facto hard mode. But when the right woman comes along I'm not saying no. Some guys here are all about having a life of complete celibacy, convinced that that is the best way. And there is everything in between.

    Examine your own situation and issues. Find your own way.
