Well, I've finally made it, but to be honest, it doesn't feel like it's been all that long. 2015 has been a clean year for me. At the beginning of 2015, I watched a TED talks on how masturbation can cause social anxiety.
This success story is important because I used to come on this website every day and see no improvement. Unfortunately, quitting porn is only half the battle. This story looks into the other equally important problems that I initially overlooked.
Around April last year, I decided I wanted to stop, looked at some articles on the benefits of stopping, and started doing it less. May, I got a little more determined, looked at the articles some more, and was at 28 days when I found noFap. From there, I went on to a 93 day streak.
I was fapping for few times a day since i was 13 years old, some times 6-7 times a day. This is my second trial of no fap, first one was 23 days and followed three months binging and in my second trial here i am at 90 days.
