30 days - DONE

Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Deleted Account, Sep 6, 2016.

  1. For the first time in my adult life, I've gone 30 days without PMOing. I....honestly can't believe this is true. I felt so buried, so hopeless, so lost and so powerless to fight porn and here I am, a whole MONTH without PMO. A year ago this time, I would easily do this at least 3-4 times a DAY. Wow.

    I feel more hopeful about life in general, and more optimistic. I feel more happy to just be alive and experience each day without the specter of porn hanging over everything...wondering when the next time I'll have to get away, wondering about getting caught, hitting rock bottom, etc..

    I feel more secure in my relationship. I feel closer to my lady and more in love than ever. Sex has gone way up in frequency, quality, and meaning to me and I treasure each time rather than seeing it as a source of orgasm.

    I feel more powerful and free. I don't feel like I'm a slave anymore and that I really do have the power over my own life to make meaningful, lasting changes if I choose to. This gives me motivation to start improving other areas in my life too, personal fitness, diet, and just overall well-being.

    I know that this is just the first milestone and there's a long way to go. I also know that disaster is most prone to strike when I start feeling over-confident and start taking success for granted. I'm going to keep working hard. I got this.

    Hey Jen,

    I'm close to the 30 day mark, and i can relate to a lot of things you say.

    Fapping several times a day to porn seems like a bad dream.. In what brain fog i must have been..

    I wish you a great journey. Keep going & stay stong!

    Very inspiring stuff man. congratulations on 30 days!

    I would never see myself going this far also, ever. After 20+ years of PMO.

    It has changed my view, but times are hard still and its an uphill battle but we should embrace the challenge.

    Im happy for you that you're improving other areas also. healthy mind and healthy body embodies a healthy soul and well-being as you said.

    Stay your path brother and wish u all the luck

    Nice work, my favourite bit is "I don't feel like a slave anymore". We should all be free and enjoy life to the max.
