You know, this really irritates the hell out of me. Not the title but the people who keep saying that they have lost everything, lost all progress. This is somewhat of a rant and also a post to tell you that no, you haven't lost progress, your mind was just wired that way by extremist fuckwits who like to prey on your vulnerability through guilt-tripping and fear mongering. NoFap is a great tool for those that want to abstain from PMO, give themselves a challenge to see how long they can go without doing it, or hell, just getting rid of an addiction. All power to you. But then there are those people who literally type out asinine bullshit like this and guilt-trip and fear monger people into believing that everything that they've built up while abstaining from PMO all of a suddenly vanishes and falls down. Phrases like this; Don't give up your progress just for 3 seconds of pleasure PMO is for boys, NoFap is for real men (I actually want to vomit after typing this) If you watch porn then you're a loser. If you masturbate then everything you've achieved is going to crash because you wasted your semen. If you're the type of person to say shit like this, I suggest you stop. You do more harm than good and you don't even realize it. You never know how gullible people can really be. How does progress crash after ejaculating? As an example, let's say you've procured very good habits. Eating right, going to the gym, walking, doing cardio, hanging out with friends etc. Are you suddenly going to stop eating right, stop going to the gym, stop doing cardio and stop hanging out with your friends simply because you've ejaculated? Yeah no, that's absolute bullshit and you should never believe phrases along the lines which were stated. There are people who masturbate, watch porn and lead much better lives than the idiots who spew guilt-tripping and fear mongering phrases like the ones that I stated. How does a "loser" have a better life than the person who is directly criticizing them for watching it who also (I'm sorry but this is the cold hard truth) struggles from keeping his hand away from his cock? You do not lose progress. Just because you relapse(d) it does not mean everything crashes down, it doesn't mean your entire world is over. You simply had a hiccup. Instead of shitting on yourself and giving yourself a hard time, associate relapsing with progression. You've went for x amount of days? Now you know you have the capability to do the same thing and go even further. What does that give you and show you? That you're building confidence and have the confidence to go even longer.
