I'm 48 been married 26 yrs. Divorced. So I jumped out on a dating site just to see what's up, and ended up meeting a beautiful 37 yr old. Chatted a couple of weeks and met. What happened sucked! The story-
So my marriage of 26 yrs was probably over about 15 yrs ago (meaning I didn't love her anymore, but stayed married for my kids), just different folks.
If you, reading this, feel really really bad today, because things are not going well and you're concerned and scared - don't be. You'll be fine. Just strap in and get going with the program for recover, because it works. We can have a life. If I made it, you can too.
Words cannot describe the joy I have experienced over the last few weeks after seeing a glimpse of the man I want to become. Refraining from all the worthless garbage has allowed me to become the man that I want to be. It has given me energy, confidence, courage, strength, motivation, and much more.
Lately I feel like I've seen a lot of depressing posts on nofap. People post that they relapsed, want someone to make them feel better, or they're depressed because they are having a hard time quitting PMO and are struggling. I'm tired of all the weak shit. It's not just some of you out there, it's me too. Hence my name. I'm sick and tired of this shit.
So about a month after I started Nofap, the confidence and libido kicked in strong. My initial mentality was that I would make myself irresistible to a girl I had been obsessed with for the last year or so after getting turned down numerous times, but something much better happened. I finally got the guts to get over her and stop following her around like a puppy
This is my 2nd 30 day streak. In my first attempt, I was edging a lot and let my thoughts fly, but still resisted until relapse. Of course, relapse was written all over the place. When others say don't edge they mean it!
I hope what I am about to say here will strengthen you and inspire you. My streak is not amazing like many of you here, (now at 4 months (120) and 7days) although I had once been in a 400 days+ streak and had fallen from it, yet I have learned some amazing things during these 4 months that Id like to share with all of you. Let me ask all of you a question:
I tried to end PMO for 1.5 years now and today I hit 6.5 months without masturbating. Yes! Let me share you some of my experiences and thoughts. I am way more focused, energized and social active when I'm controlling my sexual energies and as I truly understood this, NoFap became really easy for me.
It was December, 2013. I was frustrated. I was finding it hard to concentrate and focus. I knew there was a New Year coming and I wanted to nip this problem in the bud once and for all. I Googled something like: “how to get an erection back”
