  4. Yes issues like loneliness, hopelessness, anxiety, depression, etc. make nofap even harder. What I've realized though is that there is a relationship there. Often we dive into PMO in order to temporarily avoid the pain or frustration with those issues. However as the addiction escalates over time, it actually makes those feelings worse in the long-run (due to all the negative effects like furthering social isolation, lack of sleep/exercise, poor nutrition, losing motivation to improve our lives, etc.)

    My point is, that nofap is only half of the challenge. We must also fill in the holes that stopping PMO leaves behind. We must work on ourselves - body, mind, and spirit. We must take healthy risks to expand our social lives, take better care of our physical bodies, learn techniques which strengthen our mental resilience towards life's difficulties, work towards goals that will improve our futures (like education, career, community involvement, developing social networks, trying creative pursuits, maybe looking into a spiritual practice, etc.).

    So perhaps a healthier way of looking at a nofap challenge is to see it not so much as something we're depriving ourselves of, but more as an opportunity for personal growth and self-improvement that will bring us more fulfillment, meaning, physical/mental well-being, and positive relationships in our futures. We're giving ourselves a chance to choose something else in our lives, something better. We've all had enough pain here. When we take on this challenge we're not just saying "No" to PMO, we're also saying "Yes" to life.

    This takes courage, and hard work, and pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zone - but I truly believe change is possible, and beautiful developments in our lives await us in time if we commit to a more positive path.
