    Hi Faprostronauts,

    As the title suggests, I'm curious if anyone else here experiences short-term memory problems. For example, I might be reading something and think to myself "I need to look that up", but when I click in a search bar I find that I've forgotten what I was doing. I then have to scan what I was reading again to prompt my memory.

    This is something that has only taken place in the past few months, and I'll admit that my success with nofap/not using porn has been particularly poor. I'm only 26 and don't use drugs. Could this be a consequence of hypofrontality? Is it reversible? Have people with decent streaks found that their memory improves again?

    Oh yeah, working memory goes to the crapper. Give it a few weeks at least and you'll notice a difference. It gets a lot better.

    This post makes a lot of things clear for me. I thought I had a horrible memory because I am just a forgetful person but this really clears some stuff up. You aren't alone man, and from what I've heard, your brain always has the capabilities to rewire itsself, so never give up hope and just give it time.
