COMMENTS: Two landmark studies demonstrating that separate circuits exist for compulsive sugar consumption - or as YBOP calls it, 'a binge mechanism'. It has always been thought that behavioral addictions arise from only alterations of "normal circuits". While this does occur, it is now evident that separate 'bingeing circuits' also exist.
Today marks day 150 of my journey. I have had my ups and downs along the way, with good days and bad days. Some thoughts that are in my head: I look back at the man I was when I reached my lowest point, and I am amazed at how far I've come.
Unlike many of you, I'm not an addict. At least, I don't self identity as one. As a typical, American, 24 year old male, I was definitely a user. I never really delved into rough or more raunchy scenes than I expect me and my girlfriend to engage in.
I am a 24 year old male. From a young age, I was quiet, gentle and friendly. But I always had a strong sexual side. I remember a day in primary school when a friend and I told a girl we wanted to fuck her. She cried.
ME: 32 y/o, single. Here to post initial 30 success story since reading other people's success stories has been/still is one of my biggest motivators. HERE B/C: a) wanking too much, sometimes to porn, which led to decreased sensitivity during sex resulting in not being able to orgasm during sex.
My personal story: Had PIED for years, then 70 days nofap. Nowadays I masturbate sometimes, not very often though - I try to keep it at bay - I do not make a sacrilege out of it, but still no porn at all!
You may have wondered why internet porn has become so freely available on the internet these days, if you're a young male with a little bit of spare time on his hands, no pun intended, then it is pretty easy to fall into a dark spiral of daily wankathons in the comfort of your own bedroom.
Good day fellow fapstronauts. Today i come to reflect on the last five months of my journey. I'm a senior in highschool, and after a very rough breakup at the end of last school year i decided to make some changes. However, due to PMO, very little changed for quite awhile. Until the beginning of september, that is.
