Older than most of us

Discussion in 'New to NoFap' started by Deleted Account, Feb 10, 2020.

  1. I'm new to NoFap today and have been browsing the forum threads. I'm 62, older than all of the Fapstronauts whose postings I've read. I'm worried that my brain won't reboot, or that it might take a really long time to do so, since I've been addicted to masturbating for more than 50 years and to porn since high-speed connections became available about 20 years ago. But I'm on Day 2 of my abstention from jerking off and day 23 of my abstention from porn. I'm determined to go 90 days and then to reevaluate. Wish me luck!
     
  2. You can change your life through this. Good luck you will succeed.

    Good luck with your quest. It's going to be difficult to break such a long-held habit but it is possible . My advice is try to read as much as you can about porn addiction and get a better understanding of why it's hard to resist. That helps hugely in my experience
     
  4. Thank you, Hugoalsace. I'm a bit of a science nerd, so I read up on dopamine pathways and neurophysiology before joining -- that's really why I joined. I forget who said, "The longest journey begins with a single step," but I intend to just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Good luck with your own quest.

    Hope you will succeed and will write on this forum one day ‘look at me, I break a 50 years habit at 60+ years old, so can you, get your shit together’.
    Would be a good motivation for us ‘youngsters’ ;)
