Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Alexander, Aug 1, 2017.
I started my rebooting as part of my New Years Resolution.
That's nice. Keep going.
Hi guys! First day here!
Hey guys, decided to join to share experience. 1 week noFap.
I am new here. I am one month of no watching porn now.
I m new day 21 . I can stop wet dream while dreaming .IS IT NORMAL
Finally, I read the noFap ebook to spread awareness about porn addiction. I realized that this is not good for 19 years of my life.
It was started when one gay employee from the computer shop showed me the pictures of male nude group and dual sex when I was 13 years old.
When I was 4th year college, I had experience of same sex encounter inside the private toilet for around 10 minutes.
After that, I ran away and had a conscience of guilt after that experience.
I just had an experience once.
I felt guilt on it.
Last Dec. 21, 2018, I finally said to myself that "I am not gay."
My family's advices didn't worked for me. It is the right people that I connected with who helped me give up this bad habit.
I appreciate the definition of masculinity for one month now.
Of all the addictions I deal with and there are quite a few, masturbation and porn addiction is the most challenging. I'm hoping that this online community will help provide the support to keep me on track. i've gone as long as 4 months without porn and masturbation before on my own so i know it can be done.
When I have sex it does bring up my porn brain and instead of relieving me of the desire for orgasmic release it enhances it. But it is important to me to have a healthy sex life, with the emphasis on healthy. Porn has so infiltrated my brain that sex is usually an extension of pornographic scenarios I've watched countless times. This has caused significant harm to relationships I've been in since women don't want to usually be involved in that sort of fantasizing or role playing or actual acting out during sex.
Having healthy sex is probably a major goal for me. The challenge is to not allow sex to set off the porn/masturbation cycle. Not using porn and masturbating between sex is how I plan to get to that place of sexual and mental health.
I'm looking forward to learning more about what this community has to offer in terms of tools and support. I'm excited I chanced upon this through a comment made on a youtube channel by someone.
I've been telling my gf that this is something I want to do and she will certainly be proud of me too. I know that in addition to the changes in the brain , i will have significantly more time to do other more important things when i stop surfing for porn which can take up so much of my time without really thinking about it. I will start to meditate more, perhaps exactly during those times like just before sleeping and early morning when i usually indulge in pmo activity.
This is exciting and fills me with hope. I must say I do have some butterflies in my stomach now as I'm just committing to no pmo (i think that acronym stands for porn-masturbation-orgasm? - i'm brand new here, but I will assume thats what it stands for in this entry.).
PMO is probably the main way that I deal with anxiety and stress thus the feeling in my brain that i'm free falling without a parachute. In reality , I don't need PMO at all, in reality it is a painful and harmful addiction. I have a partner for sex who I love, I have many other activities like meditation and working out and yoga that I can use as stress and anxiety relief.
The allure of PMO is like a drug it promises instant gratification but in truth if I think about it the way I've gone about PMO there is no "instant" gratification it , in terms of instant release , it is a maddeningly time-consuming activity. I suppose like a drug , the whole process becomes the addiction - the thinking about it, the planning to get it, the preparation of it, the use of it, what one does while using it and the "relief" or "release" one gets from it.
Anyway this is too long a post. Sorry to anyone who may have chanced upon it and read it. And thank you to you all for being here - the administrators, moderators and participants. We can do this together.
I am new here please can any one guide me how to use nofap and I heard about some challenges. Can someone guide me please?
