Hi all. I just joined a few days ago. I’m on day 4 of NoFap. Had some crazy dreams last night lol. Gonna be difficult today after work I suspect, but I might workout to help with the cravings. ok so here’s my question: If the point for most (it seems, based on reading threads) is to not masturbate ever again or perhaps rarely ever again, why the counting of the days and talk of relapse etc..? I’m not questioning anyone’s “program” or strategy, I’m just curious what others are hoping to accomplish in their personal journey- to control masturbation and/or use of porn, or is it to never pleasure oneself ever again and never cum unless you have a partner..? I ask because I’m questioning and trying to nail down just exactly what I’m trying to accomplish too. The idea of a reboot sounds like what I want if that means my brain’s approach to sex resets to some sort of normal mode, where I’m not ravenously awaiting alone time to masturbate but instead am able to control my sexual desires and channel that energy toward self improvement and yes, finding sexual and intimate experiences with a partner. I have access to sexual partners so it’s not that porn and masturbation are my sole avenue for sexual release, but I believe I might have what we believe to be called PIED, to a degree. It isn’t horrible but I’d like to be able to have the kind of erections with a partner that I have when it’s just me. Sorry this message is getting long in the tooth...just wanted to hear what other people on here are truly aiming for: abstinence forever from PMO, moderation, or something else..? glad to be here!
