I thought I should share my perilous journey with you guys. Though my post is going to be long and boring but I'm sure that might encourage nofap aspirants and those who have been already struggling. Since all these symptoms, withdraw and recovery vary from person to person. So this post is just a motivation and an experience. Don't take it as bible.
One troubling reason why millennials are less sexually active than their parents is the warped behaviour they learn from the internet. Now there's a group trying to ‘reboot’ their mindsets
“Volakov”, as he’s known on the forum – and he doesn’t want any other clues given out – is an 18-year-old with a problem. He can’t get an erection with the girlfriend he loves.

365 days of No PMO. It's only been one year, feels like 3 years. I am not a handy person, a fitness guy, social, nor wealthy.

I DID IT!!! I MADE IT A MONTH WITHOUT FAPPING. I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I'VE EVER DONE THAT. I feel like my confidence has significantly increased from last year. I've never had issues holding a conversation or anything, but I feel like I've gotten better at it. It goes to show that this thing really does work, regardless of who you are or where you started from.
"Something's changed about you" An oldish lady I see at the library whilst volunteering had said this to me today. She said that she couldn't put her finger on what it was. Then went on to say I now look like a Viking! Great compliment and made me so happy to hear it.
