    Hello Fapstronauts,

    quick observation from today, as I was trying to get away from some midly annoying urges this afternoon. I decided to put on some music to help me clear my mind, and, as it wasn't very effective at the beginning, decided to krank it up to 11.

    I'm a huge fan of heavy metal. This music helps me channel my energy, and, because it is very powerful, helps as a good subsitute to P & M. In the end, that's the kind of music that always had a positive impact on my life, but that I unfortunalty gave up for more intense gratification through porn.

    As I'm slowly getting through my Nofap journey, I realise that I'm re-discovering my favorite music again, I'm more curious, more enthusiastic about discovering new bands and new genres. I forgot how powerful and helpful it was. It gave me the need to pick up my bass guitar again, and play a bit every day.

    Anyway, maybe music doesn't have such a big impact on my journey, and I just rediscover things in life that I personnaly enjoy but that I forgot because of my P addiction.

    For those interested, I'm really into Grindcore and Crust Punk right now. So much energy, I feel like punching a volcano.

    I feel you man,

    Music is one of the biggest healers and an underrated/underused tool in fighting the battle against addiction.

    Channelling emotion through music has gotten me through some pretty dark times and I owe a lot to it.

    I'm also a huge Metal/Hardcore fan, and one thing I would recommend is to go to as many gigs as you can. I find it to be an extremely therapeutic experience; as you're experiencing the music in it's purest form. You're also a building block of a community and a movement. You can go to a hardcore gig alone and immediately feel like everyone in the room is your friend.

    Have you listened to Wormrot's latest release? It's a stomper!

    aches crawl in the filth of vice
    What's deserved is what they receive
    Suffer the pain they bring to themselves
    Then deny the ruin
    Try to shift the blame onto
    Those who are unresponsible
    Sink down in a listless state
    A complacent half-life
    Vicious, barbaric impulsiveness
    Walking corpses decay
    In the torment that they have made
    Let them sink to the bottom
    Those who won't stand, let it be their grave
    Reach up for a hand but they're all bitten
    So now they're drawn away
    Killing brain cells, wasting away
    Killing brain cells, pure misery
    Killing brain cells, renounce, relapse
    Killing brain cells, over and over again, again
    See them scatter
    As weak promises shatter
    Used up all the second chances
    Given by the ones who matter
    Pathetic excuses
    Have all worn thin and through
    The escape route transformed
    Changed into a death trap
    Killing brain cells, wasting away
    Killing brain cells, pure misery
    Killing brain cells, renounce, relapse
    Killing brain cells, over and over again, again
    Through free will it was chosen
    Can't pin it on anyone else
    Can't pin it on anyone else
    Except yourself
    Broke through the thin ice once stood on
    Fall down into the nothingness
    Die from the venom intaken
    Now there's no one else to be blamed
    Killing brain cells, wasting away
    Killing brain cells, pure misery
    Killing brain cells, renounce, relapse
    Killing brain cells, over and over again, again
    Roaches crawl in the filth of vice
    What is deserved is what they receive
    Suffer the pain they bring to themselves
    Then deny the ruin
