    Who am I
    35 european male, single, PMO addict since 14. Working in IT.

    So it begins

    Today my counter shows 30 days and I allow myself to feel good about this small victory. It's the first milestone of my initial 90 days PMO challenge, but my resolution is to never go back to that shadowy, weak and sad life I've been living. I consider this just the beginning, the warm-up phase.

    I was told there would be superpowers
    There are not. I am not a superman, women don't hit on me, my skin has not improved dramatically, my hair didn't magically start to grow again and it's still hard as hell to build muscle. But I feel stronger, more stable, more persistent, able to enjoy little things and capable of making progress. I am simply regaining control over my life, step by step.

    What helped me
    I am quite convinced many of us relapse, because we fail to provide love to ourselves.
    If you're interested in my mindset, find out more in this post in my journal:
    https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/real-change-takes-time.116896/

    What is next
    I'm gonna make my own life, with blackjack and hookers!
    Just kidding. I gave up alcohol almost completely, I gave up toxic relationships. I am slowly discovering who I am and what do I really want. I still spend too much time with pointless messaging, browsing 9gag and social media. But it's gradually getting better.

    Progress, not perfection.

    Great. 30 days is a pretty big achievement. You have very good reason to feel proud about this, and you'll hit that 90 day target soon. Keep winning

    The mindset improvement is worth so much. Maybe it's not called a "superpower", but it's just as valuable imo... In regards to lack of other "superpowers", let me ask you something - did you have sex within this 30 day streak, and did you have wet dreams?

    Congratulations! Man.

    You have done it for 30 days.

    I think now it will seem easier for you to go more 60 days to complete your 90 days challenge.

    I think it's your great achievement that you have done it for 30 days.

    Once you are able to complete for about 90 days. I think you will feel more powerful in self-control.

    What do you think about it?

    Great work on reaching the mini milestone of 30 days. 1/3 of the way to 90. I know we are all on the path off complete freedom, but until we reach that level we should and we can allow ourselves to celebrate the milestones along the way!!!

    Keep going and it might not be superpowers, but definitely a happier self, better life and who knows what benefits lie ahead. Since I am 100% convinced that PMO-Free living is certainly much much better in every aspect of life than what we came from.

    I'm so glad you mentioned there part about superpowers!!! Seriously, I think so many guys feel they will somehow turn into an alpha male when porn is out of their lives. The reality is that they may feel super, but they may be returning to a normal state that has been far removed from their life. It's simply a change of lifestyle. I don't feel superpowers exist. You feel better about yourself! But, all the stuff about girls swooning over you and your life becoming like a celebrity doesn't happen. You become more confident in you and take more chances knowing your worth.

    Pretty good but 30 days is only top of the icecream.

    90 days is where you start to see some alpha male in you. If its hard to build muscle try eat protein(found in meat and eggs) at least 2g per kg of your mass a day. Thats like 1kg of meat(20g of protein in 100g meat like chicken breast) a day if your weight is 100kg.

    Good stuff man! And thanks for the realistic description about the benefits. I sometimes get a bit tired by guys saying that they had superpowers after x days of nofap. Of course you'll be more emotionally stable and focussed. But I don't believe in massive hair growth, major improvements in skin and suddenly being a babe magnet. And I think we don't need that, being released from our addiction, having trained our self-control and thus self respect is a huge price to win from overcoming this!

    what kind of things have you experienced now you're almost there at 90 days that you didn't had at day 30?

    Well I have same benefits as in 30 days just stronger. I felt my mind was very clear around 60 days and after 70 days I needed less sleep. Looking even beter than at 30 days. Basicaly its sure worth it to stay clean as many days as you can cause some dont even notice diference at 30 days but at 90 days everyone should notice change.
