Hey guys, I'm asking myself how to deal with my PMO-abstinence in front of others: So far, I've told only very close friends that I started NoFap and write mostly to you guys here on the forum. When I stopped smoking first, it was a big boost of motivation and determination for me to tell everyone: "Hey, look: I'm never gonna smoke again!". So when I was tempted, it wasn't just a promise I made to myself (although that's what counts most), but also a promise to them. Of course, sexuality is a very private and intimate topic you don't discuss with everyone. Also, it's another situation because far less people seem to be aware of the dangers of HSIP than of smoking. So I guess you risk being called weird instead of receiving support for your decision. Especially since I (for my part) haven't been officially "diagnosed" with an addiction. But I'm tempted to discuss this topic with other people that I know, so I could also evaluate my own situation better, and see how others, who haven't already known the NoFap-community, would react to that information. So, what do you guys think? Who did you tell about your addiction, and how did this go?
