    Hi everyone,
    First time posting on the nofap forums I'm 28, male, and have fapped since i was 11. Latecomer to porn though at 19/20. I would like to fully reboot by hitting the 90 day/ three month mark of no PMO whatsoever but i know thats a long way off just yet.

    There are three main reasons i would like to do this: the first one is general motivation. I seem to have lost my drive to succeed in most things in life. Secondly i am hoping i will reduce brain fog. I feel as though i cant think deeply anymore, and i have memories of being able to do so very well when i was a teen. Thirdly, I would like to work on my social skills and improve my confidence when talking to people. I get anxious and lose track of what i'm saying so i want to eliminate this.

    I am currently on day 10 of my first attempt at NoFap. On day 4 I edged for 15 minutes (no porn) because i was feeling like my excitement had built up, and i wish i had not done this. Im not resetting my streak though because i didnt come close to finishing. I assumed edging would have no effect if i didnt finish but it did! I had a mini flatline and only now on day ten do i feel like i am back to where i was.

    I decided to start this thread today because i really wanted to tug it this morning ( but didnt). So i thought having support on here would make me less liable to relapse. thanks for reading

    Today's been a bit of a struggle for me too. Glad you didn't give in. I haven't had a double digit streak in years, so I celebrate that you have been able to make it this far! Keep it up. I'm sure it will be worth it in the end!

    So today is day 12 and im still going strong. Little mini urges are creeping in. Especially after the gym when i am tired, this is the time i would usually PMO. Easily resisted at the minute because they pass very quickly.

    I am noticing little things (mainly about women) that i wouldnt have noticed as much before, such as eye colour, kind character etc. I have noticed a small increase in confidence, maybe 5-10% but nothing crazy just yet.

    I was stronger at the gym today than normal as well, although this could be to do with my sleep pattern improving and also my diet.

    I believe this is the longest streak ive ever had of nofap. Iremember struggling to get to a week a few years ago!

    Onwards and upwards...

    Okay so today is day 15! I've not come close to PMOing at all, my strategy is to try not to think about it at all. So far so good.

    I do feel as though i have a slightly better mental focus, like my brain has become less lazy lately. I have also had a couple of incidents of girls blatantly flirting with me in front of other people, which caught me off guard. Im not used to that. What is strange though is that i havent been doing anything differently, so i dont know what people are picking up on.

    The mini urges are still there, and a little more frequent these last few days, but still easily controlled.

    To day 20! Onwards and upwards!

    Today is day 18 of no PM, however i did have sex with my wife and O'd. Am i supposed to reset my streak after this?

    Im quite happy to continue on with no P or M and just have sex when the mood strikes us. After all, one of the reasons im am NoFap is to make sex more enjoyable.
