The following post may be emotional for some, so trigger warning. (I hate that phrase) First of all, I wanted to thank Alexander and the rest of the moderators of nofap. I really think this community is helping me and I'm improving with my addiction. So from the bottom of my heart, again, thank you all. For the longest time, I didn't realize it, but I was in a pit of self loathing and despair. I would either watch pornography, or just sit in front of my computer and play games. I lost a lot of great jobs due to addiction and I was going nowhere in my life. I'm not against video games myself, but I often wonder if it was some sort of secondary symptom of addiction. For example, maybe fapping reduced my testosterone levels so much that I didn't want to go out and experience life, so I just sat at home wasting ours on fun (but pointless) games. The reason I say this is that since I've been on nofap, I have lost all desire to play them as well. To reiterate, no, I don't have anything against them, but perhaps people like me just have addictive personalities and are drawn to stuff like this. Anyway, I know social media can be addictive as well, but I've restarted Facebook and am reconnected with old friends that I abandoned during my isolation. Feels good to be social again. My confidence is returning, and I'm approaching more women now as well. Before, if I were to be rejected, it would have destroyed me and I would have given up, but now I just move on to the next one. It's not a big deal to me now. I've also attended a lot of job fairs and have had some interviews scheduled. I can't want to use all this stored sexual energy on something positive. I really think this stuff works, everyone. Keep trying. Don't beat yourself up if you hit a speed bump. Thank you for the third time to everyone in the nofap community. I love you guys.
