    I'm seeing some progress

    I'm on day 96

    I got a new second job, got some better clothes and lost weight

    I have noticed more interaction with women, but still cant make it past 1st base lol

    I think its going to take longer for me, since I was addicted to porn since I was 14 I am now 40. 26 consecutive years straight. Probably going to take double the time to officially reboot. I'm on my first attempt, its finally starting to get easier away from PMO. My anger and beating someone head off is still there, but I think its starting to tamper down.

    Hey @pissedoff! :p In fact, the reverse is true. It may seem counterintuitive but...

    The longer you have been addicted to porn the less time it takes to heal!

    That fact is explained in the interview with Gary Wilson, the scientist who hosts the site http://www.yourbrainonporn.com/

    It has to do with high-speed internet porn. :eek: Older guys, like us, :rolleyes: did not have access to it when we were going through puberty and our brains were developing. Teenagers that are exposed to high-speed internet porn do untold damage to their brains and can take two to six times as long to recover. But our use of dirty magazines and videos was not that harmful. :)

    Same here. First attempt as well.

    LOL. I am going to hit 40 at the end of the month. Tell you what if you were some what aggressive when you were whacking off you are going to get more aggressive after not PMOing for months. Your tolerance for bullshit is going to be much lower and you are going to fight back. Also you have the tendency to walk away first especially with women. If it means making extreme changes to where you go and what you do you are not going to ponder. You are going to take action very quickly.

    Thanks guys! Tomorrow will be my day 120! NoFap no pmo! no sex nothing! zilch! I'm not pissed off anymore! It finally completely went away around day 105-110! and it got alot easier now not think about porn urges or anything..I am getting in incredible shape at really fast rate! I actually got a zit, which is weird. Its like I'm going through a new puberty lol! This is crazy, I never had a good body in all of my life, looking at myself in the mirror...it seems like I'm going to have one...its mind boggling. That NoFap android app is very helpful! If I ever get depressed or get a urge..I just click the button and read the motivational stuff!

    First attempt? You've down incredibly well, once you get that feeling of wanting to achieve and to overcome its a desire that can overcome the "crack" of PMO I think once we get a glimpse of the light on the other side of PMO PMO starts to fade always focus on the lighth.

    Yes, first attempt! Thank you! My thoughts you only live once! I dont want to waste anymore time and relapse! Just get it over with, start my new life asap!The first 105 days was very difficult for me personally. Just kept suffering and suffering, finally around day 105 - 110 it just went away!

    That's an interesting theory. Could be really the case. Maybe we older guys not only had no speed porn, we also had more true social interaction. And we were not monitored by our parents 24/7. Maybe.

    But I's suire that the PMO addiction has its basic core in childhood trauma. Growing up in a dysfunctional or broken family, being abused and neglected as a child.

    In that constellation, if you are living like in a prison, with constant fear, you begin to escape in a dream world. And porn is used like a drug.

    Therefore, it is so tremendously important to connect yourself back to your inner core. To make peace with the world and yourself. Always when I am able to connect back to the core, then the PMO addiction vanishes.

    Very encouraging. I remember emotional agonies around day 40 on my first streak here with Nofap. I've got to prepare myself for pain for over twice as long, knowing that there's a bright horizon at the end of that night. Thanks for your experience, wisdom and for being an inspiration!

    This has been the most challenging ever in my life, I'm very surprised still have not relapsed (knocking on wood) Im surpassing day 145. Starting to feel more control again on my urges, thank god!I'm still horny as fuck lol! But feel more in control. It was a very rough period there. Battle of the Bulge :)
