Hey everyone, I am 18 years old university student and I heard about nofap quite a while back. First of all I want to welcome everyone and say hello to you folks I am currently at 17 days of no fapping and no watching porn, but currently at the moment, I have really strong urges I even went to the shop to public but the only thing I could think of was that I can not masturbate and I have to hold on but the urges somehow didnt passed. I was even edging a while back, but I realised it doesnt make any sense. I overcomed it thankfully and now I feel awesome. The thing is how this nofap stuff affected my life. For a few years, I was feeling really depressed, anxious, not confident of myself, and I didn't know why. I even wanted to see psychologist. I was seriously messed up in the head - didn't wanted to talk to anyone, and thinking that I look ugly, even though my girl classmates were always telling me to try out modelling, that I look great. During the holiday, I somehow found this site and saw all these people talking about their great achievements and improvements - and I could so much relate with all these problems they overcome - anxiety, depressions, no motivation, no socialization, etc... Since nofap, I made some great stuff and advancements - I made a driving license, spoke with people I did not know at all and made friends with them actually - which before nofap I could no way in hell do. Ffs I was even sometimes ashamed to talk with my friends - now it is a lot better, but I am still not 100% cool in this. The biggest thing I noticed is the motivation and will to do something. I used to do nothing all days long and just procrastinate, which is still something I have to fight with because it is a bad habit. But I am a lot better now than I used to. I used to feel very anxious in society, always felt like someone is watching me, like paranoia, that is gone (I hope). I am just at the day 17 and I already see great results, I am a lot more calm when with people I dont know and no more anxiety attacks. However, I kinda didn't follow the no PMO rules. I didn't masturbate for 17 days, yes, but I was edging and watching some porn too. The reason is that if I had resetted the whole no PMO counter, it would made me feel really demotivated - trust me, this is a huge step for me, I masturbated like 5 or 6 times in total in 3 months, which is a huge acomplishment for me - I used to fap several times a day. So I will just keep my counter for no masturbation at day 17 and no porn at day 5. The question is, is this thread just for introducing myself, or can I write something like a diary and progress? If not, please redirect me to the proper part of the forum or redirect my thread if needed. Sorry for any mistakes, not a native speaker here and also I am writing this through my mobile phone.
