    So I have had two long streaks since last year. My best one of 96 days, then another at 89 days, then all of a sudden I had some small relapses that kept me from getting back to 30 days. I started this journal so I can re-focus. Also for anyone else interested in some random d-bag's experiences. Started a new job this week in the Silicon Valley with a great company (I'm in IT).

    I'll be updating this journal as frequently as I can, but it may not exactly be every single day. With this first journal entry I am happy to be back at ten days today.

    Just needed to re-iterate that I've never been addicted to internet porn or porn in general. I'm a Gen-X'er and grew up before the days of high speed internet porn. Although even during the pre-internet days, I kept most porn at a distance whether it was vhs or magazines. I wouldn't keep any vhs vids, but I would keep some magazines for a little while but then thrown them away. Even before Gary Wilson and the Ted Talks regarding porn addiction, I always knew that porn was addictive and had a powerful grip, that wasn't rocket science to me. Fapping however, was a different story.

    I first tried Nofap in 2015 and couldn't get past day one on a streak so I eventually gave up after a few months of attempts. Then around November of last year, I somehow built up a streak that lasted 96 days, my best streak so far. It broke years of me fapping every morning before work and reset my dopamine to baseline levels where I could be happy again since the brain fog lifted off or me.

    Prior to Nofap I was suffering from some severe brain fog that I mistakenly thought was just depression. It wasn't until I read up on the studies of the reward system on yourbrainonporn site that I realized my brain fog came from fapping so much. Life is truly better when you're not jacking off and I am determined to get back on track.

    A+ for the Hawking reference.

    Nor am I.
