Hi, I just wanted to to say thank you for the nofap.com website for changing my life! I just wanted to give some quick motivation for people that are going through the struggle. I was a chronic masturbator / porn watcher. After discovering nofap last year I feel like a new man. Here's some tips I've discovered that helped me along the way. Start gradually - I started off for 2 days, then relapsed, 1 week, then relapsed, 2 weeks, then relapsed then 30 days relapsed. Every time I relapsed (I'd go out on a full porn/masturbatory binge for a day) I would initially beat myself up even though I kept progressing? Which leads me to #2. DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP! - Don't feel ashamed, or think to yourself that it's a big deal. I got better at this when I decided to laugh off my relapses and not make it a big deal and treat my next run like a game. Early on when I made it super serious I placed on all this pressure on myself and relapsed. The more I made it less serious the easier I made it without relapsing. Substitute your free time with something physically constructive. It really does help with withdrawal from any type of addiction. Basically your training yourself to get endorphins from a healthier source. I started getting back to my treadmill routine and I lost 20lbs! Thanks to not fapping lol! Get that damn green bar tracker thingy! Just looking at that thing gave me a sense of accountability and encouragement every time it increased. When I first started out I would look at that thing by the hour. I look at it every day or two now. It just makes me feel good to look at it. If you're dreading resetting the green bar back to 0 then you're not having the right mindset --> go back and re-read Step #2. Anyways nofap is not an end all by any means. It basically just lifts the veil to expose your inner problems/challenges and provides you with tools (or less burden) for you to challenge them head on. I hope this gives some encouragement to people going through the struggle and let people that THERE IS HOPE!!!
