4 months W/O porn

  1. Today, is 4 months of not watching porn. I remember when I started my NoFap journey like it was yesterday. I was done feeling shitty about myself and having this bullshit addiction control me.

    Did I expect that I would even reach 4 months? hell no! I thought it was impossible for me to hit 30 days, but here I am on day 122.

    I completed 102 days of not masturbating before I made the choice to masturbate without the use of artificial stimuli. In my mind, I had to refrain from masturbating and porn for at least 90 days and I accomplished that goal.

    Do I regret masturbating? no because my goal all along was to quit pornography and I did. I can't get overconfident, I have to take it one day at a time however, the urges are nowhere near the same like when I first started.

    When I hit that first 30 day milestone, I said to myself that I can fucking do this and I had to keep going. My biggest fear was to reset my counter and the zero scared me more than anything.

    Fear was my driving motivation to not relapse. I worked too goddamn hard to throw it all away for a temporary moment of pleasure.

    Just like any other addiction, quitting porn is possible but it depends on how badly you want it. I no longer wanted to be in my room for hours looking for the perfect video to jack off to, I no longer wanted to be depressed, I wanted more and I had to work hard to get to where I am at.

    On a side note, my girlfriend and I are moving in together next month! At one point in my life, I always believed I would live at home with my mother for the rest of my life.

    On Sept 30th, 2015, I remember leaving my abusive mother's house and found an ad on craigslist to rent a room in a house with 6 other strangers. It was the best decision I ever made.

    I chose to walk away from my own mother because I wanted control back and wanted the abuse to stop, and 4 months ago I wanted control back from porn and I did it. 2 years ago, I wasn't sure what was going to happen when I left my mom's house, but I knew it would get better, and similarly when I quit porn my life got much better!

  7. Congratulations on your 4 months and your soon to be moving in
    with your girlfriend!

    Our stories are similar in that iam about the same time frame of no P.
    first time id hit 90d I released no artificial stimulus and again on d 40 no artificial stimulus.
    this time there was no chaser. so id like to think there was more healing
    the further along ive progressed. will continue to proceed carefully tho.

    Continued success to everyone in 2018!
