Success in the Past

    The longest streak I had without PMO in my 8 year porn addiction since the age of 13 was last year, it was only around 50 days.
    But man oh man even those 50 days I felt major benefits, here is a list of some of the benefits I experienced during that period:

    - Way more confidence, this just made me feel much more comfortable in my own skin, before this streak I was really self-conscious and nervous just walking past random strangers. The increase in confidence was just unreal, all of a sudden I just had this urge to not give a fuck what people think of me - it's fucking liberating!. My self-esteem was through the roof, my social anxiety was practically non-existent. I could easily talk to anyone, I even got a couple girls numbers which in the past like 3 years prior I never could. This benefit I would say is the major one many people experience especially those heavily addicted and feel socially awkward and not worthy/lack of self-esteem.

    - Crazy energy levels, this was huge too. I felt like I could run a marathon everyday, I could go gym everyday, go university and study, socialise, play football, sleep for only 3-4 hours and still have tons of energy the next morning i wake up.

    -
    Much better sleep, I fell asleep way quicker than normal, had deeper more relaxing sleep, lucid dreams, wet dreams also, waking up in the morning feeling rejuvenated.

    -
    More time to do other things and not just sit in front of a computer fapping to a bunch of pixels and wasting your precious vital energy.

    -
    The vibes, not sure what it is about being on a long streak of NoPMO/NoFap but I always feel that you get way more looks and attention from girls. I had a few girls approach me and talk to me before this streak I could barely look girls in the eye. Not only this but you have this self-respect energy within you that people notice, people seem to respect you more. I also had this weird sensation that I could detect which guys are PMO addicts like the look on their faces and their energy gives it away. It's strange but it's a real good benefit to have, maybe due to the brainwashing of porn you just don't realise these simple things.

    -
    Inspired to become the best me, on top of all the above this one was a huge plus for me. Before that 50 day NoFap streak, I had no direction in life, like I was just surviving and following the crowd it was so sad and depressing. With all the the benefits that came with this streak e.g. confidence and energy, I just had this intense inspiring/motivating energy within me everyday to just better my life, better my craft, better myself. To actually live life to the full and not be a slave to society and it's norms. It just feels so damn good, as if this is the person I came here to be.

    I am starting it all again after a rough period of relapsing. I am more motivated than ever.

    All these benefits felt fuckin Awesome to say the least. AND THIS WAS ONLY DURING A 50 DAY STREAK LMAO. IMAGINE WHAT A 90 DAY STREAK WILL BE LIKE, OR EVEN A 1 YEAR STREAK. GOD DAMN!!!! KEEP GOING GUYS, TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THAT IT IS ALL WORTH IT AT THE END.

    I felt at 90 day streak the way you felt at your 50 day streak. Had one wet dream and at the end confidence went up too. But during those 90 days had to battle depression. Seems like everyone is different. Others have wet dreams after few weeks, others after months. Seems as younger you are as more you benefit.

    Hey man congrates on the 50 day streak and also way to restart! Life is not about continuous success, but the courage to get back up on your feet after you fall. Keep us updated on your progress (I know it's only the second day but it grows bigger each day you go). They key is keep yourself busy! Do something weird. Like sit at Starbucks and read a book or so. Get occupied. You'll get past the first week and you'll be a lot easier.

    Definitely very inspiring to read this. I've been an porn and fap addict since I was like 10 years old, now I'm 30. Hopefully this will be it and eventually I will have my success story to share.
