Hello friends, I am Rana from India. I am 23 years old and presently working part-time as a tutor and learning french. As far as I can recall I first watched a porn video when I was 12 years old, which was followed by masturbation. Till the age of 21, I used to watch Porn daily and it had become my habit. When I was in my final year of College I realised that was excessively porn and masturbation to the point that it affected my concentration abilities. I could not clear the time based competitive exams and my career was set back by 2-3 years while my close friends were doing well professionally. I came across Nofap reddit 2 years back and decided to give it a try. I could abstain from PMO for a maximum of 20 days. I experienced involuntary ejaculations, hard modes, anxiety everything, but at the eend I was convinced that this thing really works. Since then I was on and off on PMO with no specific goals. But its frequency decreased. Recently, I decided to learn french and I wanted to give my full attention to it. I discovered that PMO is one obstacle that I need to overcome to accelerate my learning curve. So I decided to create an account here and record my progress daily. A few things that I would like to share about NoFap from my experiences: 1. You have to be really do some work, improve a skill, be buzy, to not think about PMO. 2. I earlier used to have goals like 7days, 15 days , but later I switched on to daily mode. I now make sure not to PMO today. And use the streak only for motivation. 3. I used to feel so bad after relapse earlier, Now I stopped giving a shit about it and realised that it does not take up any space in my mind. So less guilt and all. Just focus on going through the day without PMO and rest everything goes fine. Thanks for your time and reading this.
