I'm finally staring 90 days in the face. I thought back to a time in my life when things were much darker. Isolated from people at times, not feeling good about myself, very withdrawn and a captive of the addiction known as PMO.
These past two weeks have been the best two weeks of my life, I feel like I've come out as a completely new person, I have had my friends complimenting me on how much healthier I look and how impressed they are with the weight I've lost lately.
I am a 26 Y/O male, started fapping at the age of 11 or 12 and it was all down hill from there. I never felt confident as a man, viewed all women as sex objects, isolated except for 1-2 good friends, feared talking to people (to the point of not saying a word when a girl tried for at least 45min to talk to me). I got to the point where I was having ED issues with pretty girls.
Bit of background - I'm just turned 29, single and from the UK.. I've lurked on the subreddit for some time and eventually tried it towards the end of last year, did a few 3-4 weekers, and also hit a 47 day streak.
Well I’ve made it to day 90 and I just wanted to share a few thoughts and explain my journey in a bit more depth to hopefully motivate others in the same way success stories did me on my way to get to 90 days.
It’s a disturbing by-product of the internet age – healthy young men who suffer from sexual dysfunction because of an addiction to pornography. And it’s a condition that has some men turning to drugs like Viagra to restore normal sexuality, instead of seeking treatment for addiction.
