I'm in Sydney Australia at the moment, sharing a flat with this 57 year old dude. He's fat, depressed, never goes out, doesn't have any friends, and the only sex he gets is with asian hookers at massage shops.
I was skeptical at first but I decided to just try it out because I had nothing better to do and figured if I took a tolerance break it would be great once I went back. At first I was astonished by how challenging it was
I (19 Male) started NoFap because I was sick and tired of not having any social interaction with girls, and I desperately wanted a girl to sleep with. I also had mild PIED. I was jacking off at least 1 times a day, some days 2 (to porn obviously).
I want you guys to create a list. Create a list of different negative things porn does to you and your life. I really need this kick in the ass because I fell back into the addiction. This fuckin' addiction, It's really like a drug.
I've been grinding away at my day job, not even focusing on acting. However, thanks to a side-gig the other week, I was able to network with a director. This director called me in for a callback yesterday, and I did what I needed to do.
COMMENTS: Thorough and compelling review of the neuroscience literature related to Internet addiction subtypes, with special focus on internet porn addiction. The review also critiques recent headline-grabbing studies by SPAN lab, which purport to have "debunked porn addiction." An excerpt from the abstract:
"Within this review, we give a summary of the concepts proposed underlying addiction and give an overview about neuroscientific studies on Internet addiction and Internet gaming disorder. Moreover, we reviewed available neuroscientific literature on Internet pornography addiction and connect the results to the addiction model. The review leads to the conclusion that Internet pornography addiction fits into the addiction framework and shares similar basic mechanisms with substance addiction."
I'm 16 and from the UK. I know, I'm young, but I've probably gone through all the shit you've gone through. I've been depressed, made poor decisions with my life, lost some people i loved because of the addiction and suffered some ED here and there.
