Age 25 - Some DE & ED: 2 months later, I can say I enjoy much more my sex life

A couple of months ago I discovered all this thing about the NoFap and I decided to join in. I would say I wasn't a big porn addicted (I used to fap 5 days of a week), but I could see how PMO could affect negatively in my life so I tried to give it a chance. Around that time I was finishing my studies and I could feel a bit of anxiety, plus when I met people I had problems with DE and ED, not a big ones but I was kind of worried.

Age 23 - Goals, new girlfriend, learning a new language, studying stocks

 I want to present you the new me. I have been addicted to watching webcamgirls since I was 17 years old.. I am 23 now. That means 6 years long I was addicted to fapping on live girls. The website gave free credits when you confirmed with mobile phone number. Sometimes I would spend hours and hours searching for a phone number I could use in order to get free credits. I was drained doing this and felt completely useless.
