    Thanks for the powerful sharing. All my sufferings are in your post. From anxiety, bad relationships, not being able to have a stable eye contact, etc. You are a big inspiration to me.
    I quoted my favourite part and the one i feel most revolutionary. Maybe you already know, or maybe not.. what you said is considered one of the most powerful spiritual practice by many many people, called mindfullness meditation. Finding this in your post is like a strong quality sign, an enlightening quote. You made me shiver, man (is it right in english language?) and i think you have given a surprisingly transformative tool to the community. This post is a must-read for any fapstronaut and a beautiful gift!

    Congrats on getting onto day 27! things might escalate as the addiction can be strong in trying to fight back which is why it takes a fight to gain the benefits u will experience. Anxiety won’t go away but I felt my social anxiety was decease and way better around day 50-200. Around that time I was able to control my thoughts and that made my anxiety decrease a lot but this year my social anxiety really isn’t there anymore but I can tell u it was hell of a ride to get where I’m at now.

    Well done man and thank you for the inspiration. 2018 was like a dry run with nofap for me, but I hadn't been able to shake it off completely. Your post inspired me to make 2019 the year that I shake it off with all the knowledge I have gained

    Why is agressiveness a bad thing? I always want to be more aggressive in many aspects like dating and my career. I believe my heavy PMO use has brought me to the ‘nice shy guy’ category. I lost many opportunities just because I am shy and I am scared of failing at anything. So often I would just stay away from many things, such as competitive job hunting and approaching hot girls. I had an opportunity where a cute girl took the step and gave me her number but I was too scared to text her, thinking that she might be promiscuous or she was up to no good. This has also affected my financial situation, instead of aggressively thinking how can I earn more, I settle with salary as an office clerk for mundane stupid repetitive job and cut cost defensively. I am already 47 days into nofap but the flatline took away many apparent benefits that I had in the first two to three weeks. I don’t know if nofap will eventually give me superpowers but if there is one thing that I really want from nofap is to become more aggressive like a grown man and not a sissy nor a kid.

    There is a difference between being assertive and aggressive.
    Being assertive is like a natural confidence and authority in a situation. It allows you to speak your truth and challenge others if necessary. Being aggressive is more like attacking somebody to get what you want without respecting their dignity. It can be motivated by fear and insecurity.

    Any virtue is a middle point between two extremes. It can be lost because of an excess or a lack of a quality. Being weak or fainthearted (sissy) is a lack of assertiveness. But being aggressive is an excess of assertiveness. It's great that you don't want to be sissy but don't go to the other extreme.
