Welcome fellow nofappers, Well these past 30 days have been no bed of Rose's, no pleasure cruise... BUT I have experienced some major benefits that I want to share with you to keep you guys fighting this fight BEFORE Before I struggled with the simplest tasks, I had poor short term memory, I was very much inside my own head with shame, guilt and regret - I did not feel good enough. I didn't feel good enough to be liked, I was withdrawn and favoured being isolated on my own - watching Netflix and spending hours on video games. I was plagued with low motivation, simple chores like washing the dishes would take hrs to be completed - if done at all. And I was tired - tired although I had slept like a baby for the past 9hrs! I was anxious to start a whole streak again, fearing the withdrawal symptoms. Which I have had my fair share of these past 30days. 30 DAYS Week 1 - I did not notice significant benefits till about day 7 - the first week I was very much in withdrawal - random anger outbursts, crippling depression with suicidal thoughts, no libido. Day 7 - 14 positive improvements are being seen, social anxiety is going down, acne is clearning up reduced Shame and improved eye contact Day 14 - 17 - superpowers are here! I was bursting full of energy, social anxiety pretty much non existent and no real urges to speak of. Day 17 - 21 Very low again, very strong emotions, becoming upset very easily and irritable Day 21 - 30 Emotions are normalizing, performing better at work, negative self talk is virtually gone, feeling proud of streak. As the streak continued however I have started to feel more confident in myself, I am less in my own head, social anxiety has therefore improved, so has my memory. I can only put this down to there being more space in my head - thoughts and feelings are more clear - they are by no means perfect but they have improved. Positive emotions have been returning, I have more genuine laughs, whereas before I found very little funny, i have become more caring and empathetic with family and friends. Taking proper care of myself seems so much easier, as if as my mind has cleared I can now focus on things that are more important. I have reduced the amount of time I am playing video games and am improving my diet. With fear of sounding dramatic - I feel more human - I cannot believe what a difference 30days can make. I feel a different person Also I host an AP group and am looking for dedicated guys to join - there is a leaderboard ranking to appeal to our competitive natures - see here : https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?threads/any-age-accountability-group.225954/ Hopefully I can report further benefits from day 60! Carry on the fight!
