I have been on SR for the last 19 weeks.( i don't count days , i count weeks). This is my longest streak. It took me about 2.5 years of relapses to reach here. Before this streak , my average was 10-12 days and the longest around 50. I have been addicted to flapping for nearly 30 years and p for 14 of them.( luckily it never escalated) It wasn't easy. I had severe insomnia (up to w14), lethargy( w2- w8), irritation, aggression and anger( w2-w6), mood swings ( stabilised around w12) Things i have noticed: ( my fav : #5 & 11) 1- After w8 , i started feeling the energy rising. I started doing pushups to release it. Now i do around 200 pushups 6 days a week. When i started, i only managed to do 40 (several sets throughout the day) 2- I am more disciplined than ever. I have about 10 disciplines i do nearly every day without fail. 3- Thanks to SR and fasting ( IF) + pushups , i have lost about 22 pounds ( 10kg) and gained about 8 pounds of muscle. The last time i went to see my old butcher (whom i haven't seen in months) he said : wow man, you look very different. You look stronger and "musclier". 3- I have gained tremendous confidence and my self-esteem is higher than ever. 4- I walk like a man now. With so much confidence and assertiveness. (Similar to the Peaky Blinders Thomas Shelby's walk ) 5- SR makes a man's gaze irresistible to women. All i need to do to register my interest is to give her a gaze and she will do the rest. Several retainers have mentioned that eye contact with women becomes electrifying. In my experience, it felt like soul orgasm that lasted for weeks. ( it could be love, love, love.) Talking about love , you won't experience it until you retain . Seriously, it is a divine heavinly feeling that i never felt before SR. How sad that some men will never feel it because they are constantly releasing. 6-My voice became a bit richer. I am still working on that. Making my voice more attractive is one of the main reasons why i do SR. 7-People everywhere smile and greet me. Could be my masculine assertive walk. Could be my aura. Not sure. 8- Kids always come to me and start talking or at the park, want to kick the ball to me. ( their moms always apologise) 9- My dreams are very vivid and my sleep is much deeper now. I sleep much less , with no need to nap during the day. 10- Old wounds and hurts keep popping up as flashes. I think that this is due to a healing process fuelled by SR. 11- l now appreciate women more, i see their true beauty. No more objectifying them. 12- I am a true sigma male now. I am highly self reliant and responsible. Not all the benefits are due to SR. But without SR it would be impossible to achieve anything of significance. I hope that my story inspired you.
