A great story and a great read
I wish you all the best in your journey!
Nice, bro. How long a streak did Alex hit with hard-mode, out of interest?
Amazing! So inspiring brother!!! Thanks for all the wisdom and remember, everyday is an oppurtunity to get better!
@chefboyxo Alex did more than 90 days I'm pretty sure, to make sure he was fully rebooted. He's never watched porn since, but he might masturbate occasionally. I'm not sure. It's not really necessary though, he leads a very active sex life!
Your story is one of the many great inspirations on this site, I hope that it ends well for you.
Good luck bro!!
Very insipirational post my friend, I have some similar friends who pushed on and achieved things in their life, so I feel lot of resemblance toward you. I am almost 24 now, and I had read about the game since high school, but nothing much has changed. I am focusing on my career and health, and have tried to nofap for several times in the past. Stay strong brother, you just saved me from a relapse, reminded me why I am here. Thanks again for that.
Stay strong brother!
Oh, man!!! I didn't read all of it. But you got me so motivated that I will treat your post as my bible. Read it every day. You should consider being a coach Keep it up. We can do it!
Better late than never. You haven't lost anything. I've lost mine a year ago and now two girls said they have never been pleased so much by a guy. We, late-bloomers (LOL) are great carers who care more about female orgasm than ourselves. Girls like that, and that's why you should achieve your goal.
"Why waste my time on getting better at League of Legends when I could be getting better at piano or girls?"
Been playing this game for almost 4 years now. Counting/seeing the amount of IP I have earned ingame, seriously makes me wonder why I keep playing it. I can quit for a month but I keep coming back at it. One year ago I bought a digital piano and after some while I got pretty good at it. Here I was thinking; imagine if I had spend those thousands of hours on practising the Piano instead. I'd have become a pretty good player by now!
I didn't play last month at all. Started again 3 days ago and realized what kept me attached to this game: Friends.
Friends are the sole reason (most of the time) why I kept coming back to League of Legends. When they talk about it on skype, in real or in a group whatsapp chat it attracts me more and more untill I give in... sucks!
Either stay strong, or distance yourself from your friends.
I'm still struggling to this day but perhaps NoFap will aid me in this matter!
I kinda had the same thought.
But live and let live, I guess. Good luck to OP on quitting porn so he can enrich his life with meaningless sex!
Dont be sarcastic due to someone elses goals. Cmon. Everyone one here has different views, goals and different wants on what they want. No need to condemn.
I've had people question the validity of my goals since the day I got here. If you make a public announcement, you can expect to a candid evaluation or two. C'est la vie. I'm just making a snarky comment. It's not like I'm going off on some kind of ideological tirade here.
Very true. Cant argue with that. Just saying casual sex isnt something to scoff at. Idk if you believe in maybe sex only within marriage? But not everyone has that oppourtinity so idk i (as an older virgin) would take the opportunity given
I'm a significantly older virgin, and I've scoffed at casual sex plenty. I'm not trying to claim the moral high-ground here (were all porn addicts, afterall) -- It's the mentality that I find distasteful. I might have been less disgusted if I'd heard something about love, intimacy or relationship or anything to indicate a shred of humanity besides having sex with a lot of different women. It so happens that I have a religion with an opinion on this topic, but there are plenty of non-religious people who find casual sex distasteful (e.g. most women).
I'll admit that there's a part of me that finds casual sex appealing. It's the same part that finds porn appealing. It's the part I'm disgusted with in myself, and the part I am trying to change. That's probably why I react strongly to this post. It's an echo of an impulse inside of me, to which my humanity reacts with revulsion.
Hey Aaron, I hear what your saying about the casual sex thing. But like a lot of things in life, it doesn't have to be so black and white. Check out this new thread for 'aggressive gentleman game'! lol
I'm not personally looking for a girlfriend at the moment for several reasons, but this is a "game" I could get behind! I think you'll admit that your game isn't quite in the same spirit as the original post of this thread, however. Oh sure, it's about fostering the same skills, but to a different end... And as far as those skills are concerned, well, I'm alright; for you see, sir, I play guitar in a band!
You my friend, just motivated me more than anyone or anything else.
A excellent written success story (good luck man!) Is so much more motivating than a scientific article.
Thanks, thanks and thanks
I read this same story every few days. Best post ive ever seen on here by far. Motivates me to never stop. I wanna be Alex
@Crispy21 you can be! Alex is no different to us
@Aaron_0 I respect your opinions man. I wouldn't describe sex as meaningless though: if I was looking for a dopamine hit I'd just watch porn or eat some chocolate. What I'm talking about is cultivating intimate, positive sexual friendships and building confidence and social skills on the way. It's far from the only important thing in my life.
That said, live and let live. I don't think sex is necessary to a good life: there are celibate men who have their shit together. It's just something I value as a man, along with positive relationships with people. Love your profile pic btw, classic Samberg
