Tomorrow is my 21st birthday and I'm incredibly proud of my journey in becoming a stronger man so far. I'm vegetarian, I eat healthily, I care for others, I give to charity, I exercise regularly, I study hard and I have good friends and family in my life. However, I still suffer from considerable general anxiety and social anxiety. It is nothing like how it was years ago, when I would lock myself in the school toilets to be away from others. Now I enjoy meeting strangers, going out with friends and speaking on stage. Still, at times I feel quite incapacitated in some of these social situations because of my anxiety. I've become much better at dealing with the thoughts, through meditation and active awareness, but to an extent they are still there. Now I'm ready to tackle NOFAP head-on. I've been on and off this programme for more than two years, always having relapsed after a short time. The most I previously managed was three weeks, more than a year ago. Now my streak has started afresh and I'm on my fourth day of NOFAP. I feel that this time I WILL succeed. I've been fapping since I was around twelve, I never watched porn for long times because I knew it wasn't good and I wanted the dopamine reward asap, which meant masturbating quickly. Still, I could go with masturbating to porn 2-3 times a day. I believe my masturbation/porn problem linked into social anxiety by providing me with temporary relief, giving me no need to address my underlying fears. Without being hooked up to porn I can achieve address those underlying fears and become a superman. Will NOFAP make me the ideal man? I have everything, now I want my energy BACK from pmo to work HARDER and STRIVE to be a better me.
