    For anybody who’s struggled with social anxiety, have you noticed that avoiding porn and masturbation helps you talk more to people? Lately it’s been easier for me to talk to customers at work, and I’ve started greeting coworkers; usually they greet me.

    Yes, social anxiety/nervousness/fear of exposure seems to be some of the negative consequences of PMO.

    Avoiding porn and masturbation does help make it Easy to talk with anyone, anytime, anywhere.
    (Because we have no shame... or guilt... or weakness -- NO BAGGAGE to hinder us.)

    FREEDOM ....... CONFIDENCE ....... PEACE ....... and STRENGTH are some of the Benefits of No PMO.

    Thank you. Keep strong, man. I know it’s tough.

    Yeah, going into NoFap a second time, I thought that I could maybe get to where I was comfortable in my own skin. I’ve been looking at porn and jacking off since puberty. It made me into an awkward pervert that ladies haven’t wanted to be around for the most part. It’s also made me feel shameful and abnormal on the inside while pretending on the outside that I don’t have any issues.

    I think I saw a quote somewhere that said you can only be at peace if who you are on the inside matches who you are on the outside. Christ said something similar to that effect in Matthew 23:25-27:

    “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.”

    Is this a placebo or is there actually something going on with the body and brain.

    How long does the streak have to be for these effects to take hols?

    I think its more about the confidence that you gain while you are in nofap...
    The more you resist your addiction
    The more confident you become
    The more it become eaiser to talk to people.

    Once you start talking to people you stop doubting yourself and social anxiety just fades away....:emoji_thumbsup::emoji_thumbsup:

    its not placebo, it how you feel inside is how you act outside and shit like porn effects you even if your un aware its there deep down.

    also your brain is in stare at and jerk mode and you cant do that so it makes you uneasy also your looking for instant high and cant get it which makes you uneasy, like a soilder comes home feels uneasy not holding a gun its there subconsciously.

    well you need to get your head on normal you cant pick people in real life and stare at them having sex so why train your mind to see this as normal and go into the real world and then when your stressed, not being able to watch porn to escape.

    there's way more too it
