One of the best examples I've seen! Care to share your workout routine, @5even9ix ?
Absolutely insane transformation. Not only can I tell your soul shines, but you look like a completely different person, in the before picture. You look 20x healthier now! Keep up the good work man. Nothing can stop you!
Well done mate. Very inspirational. Keep up the good work.
Thank you so much for the kind words! I really appreciate all of your feedback, NoFap proves day to day that it's a mature and positive community.
I'm happy to report that I still haven't had a moment of craving for PMO - but I had an amazing dream last night. Everything seemed so real and natural about it. I had not realized it's a dream. I saw this beautiful stranger, a girl my age with blonde hair. I was feeling ready to seduce and conquer her, I was actually looking forward to the conversation. But a few moments later we were making out intensely. Things escalated, I told her jokingly "I'm gonna cum really fast but don't let it bother you, just wait a minute and I'll continue".
When I woke up I was a little disappointed to see my underwear all wet. I thought that I'm going to feel drained for a while. I checked and my balls still felt just as big and loaded as the day before. I started the day with an intense workout followed by interval sprinting in the company of Rashid, my dog. I immediately jumped into a cold shower when I got home. By this time I already felt pretty good. But then I asked my body to produce more testosterone and semen and I swear, it felt like a huge dose of manliness just entered my bloodstream. I took a deep breath and just soaked it all in. The shower took 30 minutes because I enjoyed it so much. Something primal got awakened there, I started humming and chanting deep sounds. Even though I was still taking an ice cold shower, my body felt warm and comfortable. In this empowered state I let out a forceful barbaric roar. This cold shower was one of the most powerful experiences I've had during these 54 hardmode days. I don't know much about the subject of unseen energy and I won't study it until I feel ready. But I feel like something clicked in me on a more subtle layer. There is definitely a fiery energy that I'm aware of, and I'm slowly learning to transform it. That's my new goal, to redirect this primal force, to use it for more profound things than sexual expression.
Tomorrow I'm meeting an ex-classmate who opened up about struggling with NoFap. I'll go prepared to give him the best advice I can. Later the same day I'm going to surprise a girl by showing up at the opening of her exhibition. We were really close a few years ago but addictions took over and destroyed that relationship too. I don't have any expectations, I'll just improvise and make the best out of it. It's getting late so I'm gonna end this report here, wish me luck for tomorrow and see you guys soon! Peace and love.
P.S: @overclocked I appreciate it! Sent you a PM.
Please continue posting. Your posts read so well and are truly inspiring.
Your friend is lucky to have you, I'm sure he'll benefit from the talk greatly!
And thanks for inspiring me to get back on track. I lost my way recently, partly due to those vivid dreams you just mentioned. They were too much. But you know what? They went away a few days into the bad old habit. Strong correlation here.
Thanks man, I'll definitely keep posting! 90 days is getting closer, only a month and a few days left! To be honest though, brain has mostly rewired. How do I know this? Some people take faster than 3 months to heal and I already started this process 6 months ago. When I took NoFap semi-seriously I'd still dream about watching porn instead of being with real women. Proof that my brain still connected sexual expression to pornography. Lately I don't crave or have the desire to watch any sexual content on a screen. Instead I interact and am interested in real women. All of my sexual dreams in the past 2 months were with humans. The dreams, man... they are getting so much fun. This morning I had one in which I just put my arms around a cute chick's hips in a party, even though we haven't met before. She was next to me, I found her attractive and literally took her. Went in for the kiss and she loved it. No wet dream thankfully! I'm being more and more dominant with women both in my dreams and in real life. The way I look at women has completely changed.
Warning: this report might contain NSFW content. Nothing too sexual or triggering, I swear.
I understand the basics of human nature and the gender roles and act accordingly. Women who embrace their femininity love it when you take control and act dominant. This all comes naturally for me now. Yesterday I surprised my ex-girlfriend at the opening of her exhibition. When we dated around 2011-2013 we were really close. I was her first. It really feels like our souls have connected in previous lives. Porn destroyed our relationship, I lost attraction and just kind of walked away. We haven't talked since. So yesterday I decided I'm gonna appear without notice at the opening of her exhibition. When I got there I first met her brother, a really good man. He seemed happy to see me and I swear our handshake was at least 8 seconds long and really firm. Kind of like an exchange of energies. I talked to him for about 10 minutes and the opening started. I kept meeting old faces and had nice talks with them. I didn't see my ex for like 20 minutes.
She eventually found me. Man, her eyes when they met mine... cannot describe this one with words. We hugged for a long time and started talking, locked on each other with body language. It was really good to see her. At one point a friend of hers walked into us and she introduced me to her as "the man who was my lover in a past life." I jokingly said "was it really that long ago?" Another friend of her walked along, I only know her name and that she's one of a kind. I said "Hi Panni!" she looked at me, smiled and screamed like a little girl "Oh my God you know my name! You're awesome!" hahaha. I wish I had replied with "You know what else I know about you? That you're having drinks with me tomorrow!" but that didn't come to my mind as I was focused on my ex-girlfriend. Next time I'm gonna get you, Panni!
I eventually said goodbye to my ex, just spontaneously. I told her how nice it is to see her again, gave her a big hug and left. I could tell that we both got charged up from that interaction. I fucking nailed it. Not to feed my ego but that's the truth. I'm gonna call her a few days later. I don't have plans to get back together but I want to fuck her brains out one last time, like never before. Give that young woman a taste of this energy, maybe even share my life force with her, that depends. Did I mention how girls noticed me at the exhibition? The signals I keep getting from women are so empowering. Even more empowering is the knowledge that I now possess the confidence to go and talk to any girl I like - yet I don't feel like I need a woman to complete me and I don't crave sex. I'm super content.
Now, some talk about men because NoFap doesn't only improve your social skills with the opposite sex. The same day, before the exhibition I met a man who I used to have some classes with. He's opened up to me about struggling with his porn and sugar addiction. The theme of our meeting was NoFap and self-developement. We found a nice spot outside, sat down and spent some 2 hours talking. I didn't hide anything from him, I gave him the best advice I could. I learned new things as well and decided that I'm going to dig deeper into meditation. He told me that he's convinced NoFap is what he must do. We'll stay in touch and I'll update you on his progress as well.
Today I scheduled a meeting with an old friend of mine whom I haven't seen in 10 months. He's a drug dealer who thinks a little too much of himself. He has a lot of great qualities though. Quick wit, open-mindedness and a mysterious aura to mention a few. I actually used to look up to him and envy his wide circle of friends, wealth and fancy clothes. His whole lifestyle. One thing he still doesn't have is a drivers licence, which I do. We live close to each other and I used to drive him around - picking up hundreds of grams of drugs. In exchange I had free access to top-tier illegal substances and he also paid for the gas. This went on for months and the higher he climbed the social ladder the more he disrespected me. Eventually he started taking my help for granted and only communicated with me when he needed a favor. This was happening when I was at my lowest. When I realized that I need to crawl out of the darkness I also decided that I'm gonna never help him again. I didn't say anything, I was just waiting for the opportunity.
The irony is next time he asked for my help he calls me at 6 am in the morning. He sounds really panicked and says he's been robbed. I'm still really proud of myself for handling that situation so well. He tried really hard to convince me to go pick him up and drive him to his parents house, even tried to bribe me. I said it doesn't have a price, my decision is rock solid to never help again. I explained why, he said sorry for treating me like that and I said no hard feelings but no more favors. This was during my first ever NoFap streak. Today, some 6 months later we saw each other again. I visited him in his new flat. When we shook hands he complimented my haircut and said that I also look fit and in good health. I told him not to feel bad because of what happened since it's partly my fault for not standing up for myself. We spoke for about an hour and the guy I used to look up to now seemed like a lost shadow held together by fake images created in his ego. I shared with him how I transformed myself and told him about NoFap. He admitted that he used to watch porn 2-3 times a day. I asked if he still does and the answer was "I'm alright, so-so. I don't think it's bad to wank every once in a while." I didn't force my views on him, when the time comes he'll be ready. I told him we should meet for lunch sometime soon. I see his potential and want to help him realize it. For anyone wondering, I haven't done any drugs for half a year and don't have the desire to. At one point two guys came up and snorted some coke. I didn't even care or think anything of it.
The last thing I want to share with you guys for now is something that demonstrates how much confidence and assertiveness I've gained. I was riding in traffic on my road bike all day - something I'm doing more and more frequently instead of using the car. I'm riding in a narrow street and suddenly there's a big guy standing in the middle, blocking my path and looking at the other direction. I shout so that he can move, he reacts slowly and yells "What?!" and touches my arm as I pass him. I slow down and roar at him "What the fuck is your problem?" He signals with his hands to come here, I turn my bike around and walk up to him. Whats your problem? - he asks aggressively. You are the problem - I reply. Mind you I'm 5'8, he was at least 6'2. His chin's at the level of the top of my head. We're talking about a wide guy with a strong build, dark eyes and a full beard. Looked energetic as well and had at least 5 years on me. He gets really close in my face. I stand my ground and stare him down - or rather up in this situation - and tell him the road is not for people. I didn't have any fear in me, I was actually hoping he'd make a move so that I can knock him out. I'm inhuman when it comes to physical competition.
My presence was eating up his but he still wouldn't admit that he was wrong, just mumbled some shit. I told him "You're a fucking lost cause. Good luck in life, BITCH." - yes, I'm totally aware that I sound like an egoistic douchebag or a neckbeard who fantasizes about stuff like this. But that's exactly how it happened with the same words because we were speaking English. When I said the word bitch my voice got louder and way lower, like really degrading and dominating. I was surprised by how it turned out. This made him walk away. I'm not proud of the way I acted, it was kind of animalistic. But it sure was an eye-opening experience. I believe that with time I'll reach levels of confidence and inner peace that I'm not even gonna be bothered by people like this. It's good to know that I'm capable of standing my own ground even against a big, aggressive guy. I'm not a follower anymore. I'm a leader.
Damn bro. Its almost like you're writing my story. I really appreciate this. Please keep us updated.
This is all very entertaining. The dream, the barbarian roar, the incident with the guy in the road. You should write a novel. I mean that.
Regarding the dream, man I wish I had dreams like that. You're lucky. haha. Regarding the barbarian roar, man are you fuckin' serious?!? You ROARED in the shower? That's funny man. And cool but mostly funny. Regarding the drug dealer, fuck him man. You don't need him in your life! Take off that Superman cape and stay the fuck away. Regarding the incident with the guy in the road, he wasn't being aggressive, you were. Don't take it the wrong way bro, I snapped on an old lady the other day, but you were in the wrong.
It's awesome to see somebody doing so well! I hope things only get better for you in the coming days.
Ha, I was that guy driving around my drug dealer friends. I stopped smoking weed though and I just ignore peoples calls now. Fuck those fake friends. Keep posting I bro! Its crazy how much I relate. I'm even 5'8" too.
I really appreciate your feedback guys!
Bill, I'm glad you can relate! I hope you are also familiar with the benefits, not just the background. Definitely reach out to me if you wanna talk. Jarvjarvison, thanks for saying that! I'm actually going to start writing. It's something I've enjoyed doing as a kid. I'm gonna read a lot to chisel my simple and artless style and when it feels right I'll grab a pen. You're right, the guy standing in the road didn't do that to hurt me or anyone else - I should've just let it go. Truth be told I'm looking forward to situations in which I can express dominance. I love to be the hero of the day, I'm the kind of guy that'll stand up for strangers when everyone else is looking the other way. The incident with the tall guy wasn't heroic at all, it was just an expression of primal force, and I enjoyed it.
I have an inspiring story to share from Sunday night. I have a really good friend, someone who helps me see my mistakes and always gives his honest opinion. He just recently got back from an international DJ contest held in Ibiza. I organized a little get-together for him, to celebrate his success. The whole thing was my idea and I chose the place too - something I would've never done before. We were having a great dinner at a fancy all-you-can-eat type Japanese restaurant in the heart of Budapest. The waitress was a cute asian woman with a kind and attractive face, aged somewhere between 32-38. I caught a few Chinese words from the conversation she was having with the table next to us, so the next time she brought our plates I make strong eye contact and say "xièxie". She lights up and replies with "your welcome" in Chinese. She then comes closer to me and starts asking a lot of questions, like how much I speak, have I been to China before, why am I learning it, is it hobby or career-related, etc... I had a delightful conversation with her and she seemed really impressed with my rusty Chinese. The look on my friends face when she left, haha. I wish I could show you - that would be inspiring for sure. I'm surely going back to this place with other friends in the near future, and by that time I'm gonna learn how to ask a girl's number in Chinese.
I can't emphasize it enough... When you cut porn and masturbation out of your life you unlock a whole new world to explore. The path of self-development facilitates dynamic improvement in all aspects of life. The choice is yours, and it is not to be made tomorrow, or next month, or this special date or that. Embrace the present moment now, take a deep breath and let yourself feel strong. Feel determined to embark on this journey or reinforce your willpower. With the power already inherent in you push away bad influences and negative energies. Simplify your life to rise and shine with unconditional love again - just like when you were a kid. Stay strong, brothers.
One of the more interesting stories here, for sure! Keep up the good work
Nice work man,seriously!!! I was also a tobacco addict, addicted to opioids/heroin, junk food, PMO, and just an addict in general...This is such a trans formative process, isnt it??? So funny how sexual energy is so interconnected with every aspect of our life, especially indulgences LOL Fasting and abstinence from PMO are what helped me quit smoking/addictions and transform my life BIG time along with most of the methods on your list as well. Thank you for being an example to others!
You should write a book! Good luck on your journey.
Hey man, very inspirational post it got me into trying NoFap again and that's saying something because I was pretty down. So thank you for that. I was just wondering though, looking at your 'before' picture, do you really think the condition of your skin is related to pmo? If so could you maybe share some information about that, when did it get better and did/do you also have a different diet now? My skin is driving me crazy atm so that's why i'm curious. Good luck and thanks again!
Hey man! Thanks for the feedback, I'm really happy you're back on the horse. I'm sure that the condition of my skin was related to PMO. Because of that lifestlye I was messing my hormones up, I had a really bad sleep schedule, I didn't pay attention to drinking enough water or eating healthy foods, I barely exercised at all and I was irritable. All these things contributed to my acne and I hated it. I tried all kinds of home remedies and medicines to make it go away but nothing worked. I even got one of those electric acne-removal treatments without any success. What made it go away is thanks to NoFap. Not only because my hormones were going back to normal but it also made me question a lot of things and I've decided to change my whole lifestyle. When I started NoFap my face was still pretty bad but I started not giving a fuck so it didn't affect my confidence. I hear that some people who try NoFap experience more acne, I think that's because the change in hormones. I'm pretty sure however, that if you do it long enough and your system reboots then it'll definitely get better. Good luck man, I hope to hear about your progress!
Fuck honestly seen the first photo and thought wow you look rough. During was a massive improvement! Current I honestly thought it was fake well done mate I applaud you!
I think i cant avoid it for more than 5 days, my life is totally boring and i dont know how i will overcome this phase.. So i found that there are natural means to lower libido, one thing is soybean and another one is monk herb. I think i am going to eat these kind of ingredients to defeat my problem, at lest at the beginning. I am in this situation from when i was 15 years old to today , i am 23. I need to live in a different way.
love your posts. So much energy in it. You seem to have an amazing personality.
Thanks for sharing!
Erik, thanks for your honesty. I was in your place before, I know what it's like to keep falling back because your life is not interesting enough. I'm not an expert in this area but my common sense tells me if you're going to lower your libido you're going to feel the benefits a little less. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, you shouldn't be doing NoFap for the benefits alone, it's truly a life-changing experience if you do it for becoming the best version of yourself. Why I'm on 63 days and still not feeling like I'm going to relapse is because I made a serious decision at the beginning of this streak. I told myself it's now or never, if I just start with the same motivation as always and wait for good things to come I'm gonna eventually fall back.
Make improving yourself your number one priority in life. Be more determined about this than anything before. And don't look at it as a challenge or a series of obstacles. NoFap isn't a fight. You should be excited and hyped as fuck to wake up every day knowing that you're already on the path of self-development. You don't have to reach 30, 90 or 365 days to feel great about yourself. Imagine yourself being really happy, content and radiating like the Sun. Imagine that you accept and love yourself and the people in your life admire you. Imagine that you can walk up to any girl and make her laugh. Imagine that you have the energy and drive to accomplish your dreams. Wouldn't that be fucking awesome? No matter where you are right now, you can get there if you take NoFap seriously. YOU GOT THIS.
Vibemaker, thanks for the feedback man! I can say the same about you. Congrats on 29 days! In my experience it gets smoother after the first month. Keep going strong!
Congrats man, truly inspiring! How did you dissociate your healthy natural urges from your unhealthy urges? I've been struggling with this issue for awhile and looking for help.
