    Hlo all.
    Today my journey marks 92 days of no MO.I watched porn in some days of my streak.
    I can feel some benefits and I can't feel some other benefits.I still have pimples(a lot).
    My social anxiety has reduced a bit, But when it comes to girls,it's awkward
    Has anyone have any explanation for this?is it porn or some other?

    Not MO'ing is great, but porn is what makes it hard to talk to girls. Cutting it out entirely will make you more confident. Also, it's natural to be a little awkward. Try to develop an attitude of "not caring". I don't mean to be nasty, but just take the pressure off yourself. Get to know a couple girls if you can, you don't have to be attracted to them, just be curious and friendly. That can really help to teach you how to truly appreciate girls, and you can also gain some new friends!

    People make a mistake thinking nofap is a cure all. There are a lot of benefits to nofap but if you have social anxiety, you need to deal with social anxiety. Nofap is not the cure for social anxiety. It can boost confidence but it is not a superpower that can make you talk to girls all of a sudden like a chick magnet. That takes practice, it takes perhaps some counseling, it can take group therapy. Nofap is a help but do not expect all pimples to go away and all of a sudden turn into a stud. It is one part of the process that does make us better. It has awesome benefits but does not do everything.

    Check out this video on youtube below. It hammers what I am saying here.

    Also when you say I watched porn during some days of my streak, that means the streak has ended and you should have restarted your counter. That is called a relapse. A streak is when you go without porn and masturbation. Do not cheat yourself and pretend you have been perfect when you have relapsed. That can contribute to things as well.

    I wish you the best. Overall, it sounds like you need to identify what nofap is supposed to and can do, verses myths that make it sound like a cure all for everything.

    First off congrats on your 90 days. Second I'm not an expert however: i don't know if the program will really help with your pimples. I'm pretty sure that that shit is hormonal. You should think about some physical changes. Changes to your diet, drink more water, roaccutane (worked for me) etc.

    As for the socail awkwardness, hey some people find that charming. But if it really worrying you to the degree that it's effecting youe confidence, why not try putting yourself out there more often. Once upon I time I too had socail anxieties and I handled them by pushing past my comfort zone, making embarrassing mistakes and learning from them, etc

    Supplement your reduction of negative behaviors with the addition of positive ones! Hope I helped a bit. Hang in there buddy!

    porn damages the brain that's why you don't see the other benefits. What benefits you haven't seen in your streak? nofap is about rewire the brain cause it's wrongly wired since you started watching porn.

    How about being 18 yrs old? Very young. Normal to be nervous around lots of things; especially those things that really arouse you ;
    such as women. Your day count is impressive. Wish I knew about not fapping when I was young. Go out and try with the girls. Take the rejections as gaining experience.

    The reason why your body decided to produce pimpels is not PMO, eat 1 bar of chocolate each day and you can start farming your pimpels in mass production.

    Wrong believes that sit in your unconscious mind as well as your general mindset towards girls have an impact as well on how you approach girls.

    Don't take NoFap as a magic pill that cures all your problems but yet still keep it as your secred weapon to have an easier time solving your problems

    If you see no signs of improvement, then you need a way to do skin care.

    for scars, read this:

    I would say don't put too much emphasis on your skin. People never care about it more than you do. I was hiking a few days ago, chat up with an interesting girl, she asked me "How come your skin is so good like baby's?" while my skin was not exactly clear, without any concealer on.
    More about that here

    P.S. try quit P forever, you won't regret.

  11. For skin problems, have you tried cutting out certain things from your diet? You could start with dairy. If that doesn't work try gluten. And so on.

    You should go further like 120-150 days. As you may know that teens needs more time to recover. Im just like you on 9X days and I dont feel much dofferents but I hope it will change for both of us.

    Congratz! I believe that adopting a vegan diet may hugely benefit life, and getting rid of the pimples as well.
    Keep it going
