Age 30 - (Married) 1 year: I believe NoFap can change the way you interact with life

tantric imagery1 Year report. I first struggled with NoFap before I even had heard of NoFap over 10 years ago in my late teens. Through studying meditation courses and books on esoteric psychology and the like, I had developed NoFap streaks in the past (unbadged).
