    Day 3 has been a success. I am going to post everyday for the next year shortly before sleep. I think this will help, because I always PMO at night before sleep and never at the start of my day. I am 27 years old single man that has been addicted to porn since 15. I am the only one who can stir my life in whatever direction and until I decide to take control and become the master of my actions and emotions, I will never live a fullfilled life.

    good luck, you can do it :) it can be a bumpy road but every battle lost is a chance to reflect and learn and get up again, and every battle won is another step towards victory!

    Day 4 has been a success. I experienced some anxiety through out the day and had some very small urges, but I fought through them. One thing I have noticed is that nofap makes you acutely aware of the issues that need to be resolved in life. And this could be emotionally uncomfortable. I think learning how to deal with the emotions that arise and the problems in your life in a healthy way can itself help towards the journey of nofap. This is because its reduces the reliance on porn that has been conditioned into our minds.

    Day 6 has been a success. I got some minor urges from being exposed to gateway images, but overall it went well. I am going to consiously stay away from this images to prevent any further urges.

    Day 8 was a success. Very slight cravings, but was immediately controlled. I am feeling balanced emotionally and motivated to work on my life.

    I feel like I have been trying to compensate for the missing dopamine rush by binging on bad sugary foods like cheesecake and cookies plus store bought chicken wings. Has anyone experienced this substitution of dopamine sources?

    Day 10 was a success. There were pretty stressfull events that might have pushed me to PMO in the past, but having this community in mind helped persist through.

    The community is here to support you, but you're the one winning every day - be proud of what you're achieving!

    As for the cravings, for the first few weeks your body will just be in confused-mode and be craving ANYTHING to fill the void. You can choose what to fill the void with though - lots of people try exercise?
    I would suggest not to worry too much about your cravings for the first weeks. Just get through NoFap first and deal with other demons later.

    Wow I like that suggestion! And good to know I am not the only one feeling this need to feel the void left by porn. Thanks for the feedback!

    Day 11 was a success, I didn't have any cravings and felt a stability to my emotions. One thing that I want to work on for personal development is having a regular sleep and wake up time. I have always struggled in this aspect of my life.

    I found myself doing this today as well. I never eat candy but today I got 4 candy bars from the vending machine at work and ate them all

    Day 13 was a success. I feel more centred in my emotions and more decisive in my actions.
