Hi fellow fapstronauts, I just wanted to ask you if anyone of you managed to abstain from sex and masturbation for a long time (around a year or more) and if so, what kind of consequences did you experience. Was it "business as usual", did you became more anxious/depressed/aggressive/calm any physical side effects etc.? It would be interesting to know, because some people say they're doing hardmode when thinking about abstaining from P,M,O but still have regular sexual intercourses. I'd really like to hear experiences from the people who went total "monk mode" because I'm thinking what is better option for recovery, allowing occasional sex to happen and only give away P and M or practice abstinence for anything sexually related. I'd like to figure out the best way to continue my recovery journey. I'm in sixth month of complete abstinence and I'm wondering if it's already time to start dating again.
