    For me, the libido returned after a week's time, and as the streak kept going and going, it just made me hornier than ever before. Especially the morning wood, which even to this day, has become the stiffest and hardest than it ever been before. Gym workouts and healthy eating assisted with the recovery of my natural sexual desire and libido as well.

    Basically, my pmo addiction reached such a level where it was costing me a lot of money, as it had ventured into cam girls, in addition to me reaching rock bottom both mentally and physically, where only porn aroused me and the emotional emptiness I was experiencing. I also was about to start a new job, and I didnt want the addiction to impact my work performance, so a combination of those 3 things motivated me to not cave into pmo cravings.

    You can definitely do it!

    Being angry is actually a "good" thing..

    when i PMO to much, I become like a zombie with no emotions..
    Even the things that should make me angry..have no effect on me because I am like dead inside.

    Being angry means you are alive and you are experiencing a normal human being feeling.

    Just make sure you are not always angry

    What motivated me was not wanting to remain in the same rut that I was in before. Wanting to cure PIED was also a motivation. In the back of my mind, I knew that I absolutely couldnt continue going the way that I previously went, and that I had to end the addiction once and for all. It was very brutal, and even now, some days are very hard. 2 weeks into my current streak, I had a nervous breakdown after I couldnt handle it anymore. However, I still got through it.

    Thank you for the advice! How has your significant other helped you? How did you explain all of this to them?

    Through a lot of encouragement. In addition, I did not want her to be affected by what I went through, and it just pushed me to keep going.

    And as far as my family, they know nothing about this. There is quite a lot of ignorance in my family, and it would be useless to open up to them about it.

    Update to my progress:

    Today is day 335 of NoFap for me. One month more and it will be a full year.

    The streak is still going, with some unexpected tests unleashed on me to test if I would mentally crack or not. Lately I been extremely horny, with erections that would last at least for a full 30 minutes. In addition, I have been having trouble falling asleep lately, with sudden energy bursts late at night that kept me tossing and turning.

    Otherwise, the streak is still going, and I am still hitting the weights at the gym hard.

    I can relate to trouble sleeping because of high energy.

    Yesterday, I was awake till 3.am because I could not sleep. I started learning programming for 2 hours...
    This is a nice side of Nofap..you'd have so much energy that you don't know what to do..

    And that's why I really think once should have a plan to keep busy and do stuff while you have that energy..

    I definitely did. And it was a pretty degrading fetish too. I recovered from it by just not thinking about it anymore , and realizing how that fetish was warping the relationships I was having at the time. Pretty much reaching rock bottom with that fetish.

    When I stopped thinking about it, that would be around the 2 month mark. Since then, it came and gone to test me , but I did not crack at all.

  18. There seems to be some variation of when the fetishes fade. I'm usually around the 3 week mark, but it ended sooner than that on this stint.

    Day 431 here. I’ve struggled to maintain my streak last 60 days from day 360 onwards. I can’t get a hardon but started this pmo shit at 16, now am 30. I’m on psychiatric meds cos in month 3-4 it got really too much for me. Couldn’t hold the anger back. I’m occasionally watching bit of nudeness every time urges come every 10 days.

    Congratulations on your streak! And upkeep! You are doing well

    I remember when I use to kiss girls in Skool n lick my cousin sisters salty stilettos (wish I licked her feet more like). I feel like doing it again the taste was just out of this world. It’s a fetish I just can’t get over. Nice feet nice taste lol

    I managed to get this far by reading Gary Wilson book your brain on porn and soaring eagles book Rebooting as the best remedy. Basically both books described the dangers of pmo. And increased my streak dramatically. Also setting up filters helps immensely too.

    Just a quick question, how has it improved or impacted on your ability to read and write? Can you work things out are you much sharper? Have your facial looks returned back to when you were pre pubescent? Are you more confident driving a car, (if u drive that is), confidence? Attraction? Blessings? Increase in wealth? Have you ever developed depression or schizophrenia whilst pmoing and has it gone now?

    Lately, I have been having a hard time concentrating due to being extremely horny all the time, but I am more aware and in-tune now. When I read and write, I have a deep interest in it during the moment, and don't stop until I am done what I have to do.

    My facial looks have remained the same, but I have added muscle now, as a result of hitting the weights at the gym frequently.

    As far as driving, not only do I drive cars, but the big diesel transport trucks too, due to me being a truck mechanic for a career.

    The other things like wealth, confidence, and attraction are slowly building.

    And finally, I have had depression and anxiety since I was 12. I still battle it to this day, the only difference now, is that it has become very vivid in terms of my thoughts and emotions. And it can be tough some days to keep them in check and reason some days, but somehow I do. Talking about it with others who don't judge helps a lot. Pmo threw my mind into a grey fog where both my pleasure and depression were mixed together, and I didnt know who I was as a person. Now that the pmo habit is gone, the grey cloud disappeared, and the depression and anxiety let's me know all the time what I am truly up against.
