It was in 2016 that I came across some YouTube videos talking about the wrong effects of masturbation that I got interested to know more. I saw videos about 'NoFap' which was all new to me. I watched a video about a guy called Andrew where he explained exactly how quitting masturbation helped him. I was so surprised at the benefits he talked about there. Right then and there I started with my abstaining period. I went for 2 and a half months then relapsed. Started again for 3 months. I remember the benefits I felt were out of this world. I could walk around people without giving a damn, my legs felt strong, I could look at anyone straight in the eye with no fear, my body was alive in the sense that I could appreciate my body parts and was so content with having them. I also got like a glimpse of when I was a boy how life was so precious in that I felt innocent, new and born again. I remember feeling the wind blow my face, it felt so new and sweet. I also recall looking at my room that day and boy! The walls, the floor, just everything about my surroundings was alive, ever thing just felt insync with my being(I can't explain) I asked myself where has this feeling been along. I cursed pornography and masturbation from that day onwards. I thank God for the guys who helped me overcome this by sharing their stories.
