    I have found that my social skills get a LOT better when I've been off the PMO for several weeks, but I'm curious how much worse they REALLY are after relapse. Does anyone feel that their social skills took a serious dive after relapse? Curious about your stories especially after breaking long streaks.

    Hello.
    I've been on a 77 days streak recently. I have social anxiety and I'm literally shy person. But when I'm abstaining from PMO, I'm always more confident in public places. I got that "not give a fuck" attitude, if you know what I mean.
    In my best days I just wanted to get outside and hang out with my friends! I've even been on a party, and was dancing with the hottest chick in school. Me, antisocial guy full of anxiety. Yeah, it's definitely working man. I badly relapsed and now my insecurities came back...
    Stay strong out there, you're doing great.

    Yes, my social skills are getting better. After a few months, your entire self-concept seems to transform. The transformation is good and strong. I most certainly have the impression that I have a greater presence in social situations than I had before.

    I think it's most important not to punish yourself for a relapse, just fight like hell for another streak. I overcame an urge yesterday that kept coming back all day. I was miserable. Today my social skills were through the roof. It's worth fighting for.

    I am eagerly anticipating getting to day 25 and 30 again, and beyond. I don't think I have lost all my progress from my initial reboot, but the superpowers didn't kick in full force until today. I think because yesterday was so miserable, I couldn't think about anything beside the urge. It paid off huge today though, I am a believer.

    They were getting better, until coronavirus put the world on lockdown. There have been very few opportunities to practice for the past several weeks. Still I'm viewing it not as progress destroyed but simply progress delayed. In fact with everything being done virtually for work, I've become much more aware of how I project on camera (it's not good) so there's plenty to work on with that at the moment.

    Every day of NoFap is progress. You are un-simping yourself.
