Day 5 of 8
Big hi-five for starting again. Come on!
5/8. I'm getting so much out of this thread at the moment. Thank you people.
Ten days left for my 90 day goal. I will be taking a break from the internet these next ten days. I feel that I have to withdraw a little and contemplate my situation. I have the time and the opportunity.
Exciting times, have you hit 90 days before? When I was coming up to 90 days I had some urges which I think were physiological more than physical. Might be worth checking in back here, or talking to someone IRL, if that happens. Just so you know.
Good. Self esteem comes from achievements, and today you achieved something. You put yourself out of your comfort zone and you made it, even though it was unpleasant. You can congratulate yourself with that. You are moving forward and improving! Thanks for sharing.
"Those who justify do not convince" - Lao-zi
You say you are avoiding alcohol, that's good. Alcohol is a much more dangerous drug. But try this experiment and try to swap alcohol and weed in your arguments and consider the statements you are making. Or try to swap the word weed with heroin or cheeseburgers? This way it's much easier to see the addiction justifications for what they are.
I mean, if you don't have an addiction, you won't have to justify your use of the drug, and you will be able to take anything into consideration because it's not threatening your self-image. But if you have an addiction, your self-image is immediately threatened by references to the potential harmfulness of what you are doing, and thus you subconsciously start defending yourself automatically - and this behaviour shines through.
I anticipated a defensive response. I guess it's the same with most cannabis honeymooners. I guess you have to come to the realization yourself...
All I can do is warn you and talk from my own experience. You can take it or leave it. The fact that you have to justify so much tells me that at least you are considering what I say long enough to defend yourself. Maybe you actually take the time to chew and digest some of my points. Good.
I don't think you really need any drug to expand your mind at this time. You are 15 years old, what you are experiencing could be natural hormonal changes making you more aware of yourself, changing your way of thinking, your body and your habits... Have you considered that? That is isn't actually the weed that is doing something for you, but it's puberty that's changing you?
And that weed (and PMO for that matter) can be interfering with this natural process? Maybe you are putting weed on a pedestal here?
Anyway, I think I've made my points now. At least you seem capable of thinking realistically about this, and I won't drag it out further now.
I wish you the best, and you have my support.
No, I've never been this far. Exciting times, yes.
I will be on the look-out for superhuman urges! Thank you.
Sorry i meant psychological, not physiological. Coming up to 90 days I think my subconscious started to worry about what if I really was cured. All I'm trying to say is the 10 days before day 90 were difficult for me and while taking a break from the internet is a good thing it would be worth making a plan for coming back at least to nofap if you need to. Congratulations though, I have the best kind of jealousy.
Ok, noted. I am far from being cured! But Nofap really works, and I will be rebooting until it is a way of life, second nature. And then I will keep abstaining from porn and masturbation for life. I am convinced. I might relapse, but I will never go back.
In my case, the urges about that time were clearly psychosomatic, my own psyche trying to cheat me out of the prize. Strangely enough, I just happened to go into flatline right after those arose and had no difficulty making it the rest of the way. And yes. Very exciting.
Great job!! I'm so pleased. Keep it going!!
Id also like to expand just a small bit on what @Single Palm Change said on this post. I think that weed CAN be used safely in a lot of cases and does in fact work extremely well for some people and can help boost creativity, possibly even helping with some diseases. In my opinion it is dangerous to flirt with such drugs because you know yourself to be an addict already. Not really the point i wanted to make so ill get to it.
Cannabis is Extremely dangerous for people under the ages of 21 because it hinders the brains ability to grow. Use of such a drug at such a young age will cause life-long altered brain changes for the worse. You just really should not be doing weed at such a young age when there should be so many other things you should be doing.
Can you say something more about it. I am 16 years old male smoking sometimes.
Weed can effect learning, memory, motivation and mood in the brain of a teenager or person under 21. This is because it interferes with your adolescent brain in its growing and development stages. Your short term memory also suffers after long use. In short its just not good for people under 21. If you wish to look further into this i suggest youtube/google for some information
Is there anyone having Bipolar Disorder ?
Yes mood swings, aggression, depression and anxiety is all common with nofap. Eventually you even out though and come out the other side feeling better than ever. The only thing you can do is see it through and these symptoms will pass. I wouldn't attribute this to bipolar though as it is only temporary
Day one as of 9pm yesterday. Person best 4 days. Feeling more c9nfconfi than before I didn't think I would I didn't think I would have made it that far last time. Good job everyone we can do this. 1 out of seven
