    I found the truth about semen retention. that's what motivates and inspires me. The seed is your masculine energy. That's what separates women and men. We have balls, which means we are here to lead the generation.

    I can't talk to girls my age. I oversexualise them and can't stop thinking about them when I know that they don't give one fuck about me. Porn is ruining my life and my perception of women. I want to get married, have kids and do all the normal stuff that successful and good people do and not end up the person I am now.

    I'm tired of the guilt,shame n mediocre way of living when I know there's more out of life than my current situation. I'm done letting p take away my creative energy n driving force too many times hindering me to have a definiteness of purpose in life and that magnetic attraction to real life people. Enough is enough. Thanks to this nofap forum. Drew a lot of inspiration when I began my journey,day21 and still going strong.no pun intended

    I lost my fiancé to my addiction. Back then I could not comprehend how much help I needed.

    She was (and still is) the love of my life and my best friend.

    My 'why' is to become a better person and for this not to ruin my life anymore than it has. I'm now aware of my problems and addressing them day by day.

    Stay strong everyone.

    My reasons:
    • I don't want to constantly feel ashamed and wrong.
    • I don't want to be a slave to a toxic system which is stopping me doing better things.
    • I am sick of being mentally stressed from the implications of porn and masturbation.
    • I am sick of my mind being controlled by porn and its induced fetishes.
     
  6. I'm doing nofap especially to cure my mental and physical health issues. But there are also a lot of other reasons why it's good to do nofap. I just want to live my life and do what i want to do, but with pmo comes depression, anxiety etc. And if you have that youre not yourself anymore

    Because when you're 23 you look to yourself in the mirror and you ask yourself "what I have now in my life?"
    and the only answer you can think of is "well at least I am still alive"
    Maybe something needs to change

  11. My religion is definitely the most significant motivator. I believe that sex is strictly reserved for a man and a woman in a marriage and porn and masturbation violate this. However, there are "material" motivations for quitting that I have. I want to divorce my understanding of sex from pornography. I started watching porn when I was 5 or 6 and, as a result, my sense of sexuality is very mutated. I want to gain the normal understanding of sexuality I never had. I want to be able to view women as people. I want to be able to connect with women beyond lust and physical affection. I want to be confident and to feel invigorated. Porn and masturbation are just destructive to everything I am and wish to be.

    Good topic and lovely relies.

    I want to feel free from this obsession which wastes my time without producing anything of value. It only leads to shame and guilt, which mess with my mind.

    Freedom. I don't feel free as long as I know I'm not in control. Also I want to be attracted to natural looks which I am not due to desentization. For the same reason, I feel I'm depriving myself of appreciation of many other things in life as long as I overstimulate myself.

    If you're looking for a legit answer, I just can't stand it anymore. Plain and simple. It almost feels like you're in an endless cycle of watch porn, masturbate, and then feel like shit. Over and over and over. It's like your own personal hell.

    because it makes me really socially anxious, it promotes hair loss, it prevents me from thinking clearly, it is cuck behavior, it damages muscles in your penis, its embarrassing to even think about, it has no benefit to me or anybody in society for that manner.

    I don't want to be a slave to impulse. I want one less thing to hide from those around me. I want to embrace difficulty. I want am actually girlfriend and not the illusion of infinite female interest on certain subreddits or other websites.
