90 Days! “I do not want to ever go back to that living hell.”

So where to start, what to say? 34 yo male, been PMOing since at least 1992.

Didn’t expect to start this journey, but after reading a few posts here, I decided that I better not even have “one last hurrah” so I just pulled up a chair, created a profile and dove in head first.

The title of my first post was something along the lines of “Get busy livin or get busy dyin…”

Well my brothers and sisters, I am happy to report that I have been living, and I’ve been living well. This is obviously the longest streak of my life, but more than that, I feel like I’ve opened myself into an entirely new lifestyle. Much cleaner, without the guilt, shame, remorse, regret, lust, dirty sheets, bags under my eyes, and on and on.

In these past 90 days I have:

1) not fapped

2) not looked at pornographic images or videos or erotic stories

3) not edged

Consequently I have been able to get a lot of things in my life back on track and I’ve reached out to try things and do things that I’ve always wanted to try. Such as:

1) I went to a country that I’ve never been to before

2) I have volunteered my time in many different ways

3) I found a church that I think suits me

4) I started taking lessons in a foreign language

5) I have woken up each morning with a feeling of victory rather than a feeling of defeat.

Furthermore – my business has been going well, and I am NOT NEARLY AS SOCIALLY ANXIOUS AS I WAS BEFORE.

As for the question that that everyone has: What about the superpowers?

Well, I can’t tell you that I’ve lost those extra 25 lbs that I’m carrying (yet), or that 19-year old sex kittens are throwing themselves at me (yet), or that I can shoot flames out of my eyes (yet)…

But I can say that I’m starting to get back to the gym a little bit, but for now I’ve been keeping it light… (it’s a process)

And, (perhaps to the chagrin of some, but whatev) I have begun in the last 10 days or so to start frequenting the /seduction area to begin working on gaining back my confidence and determination to attract women… I am currently challenging myself to approach 100 women for no other reason than to practice interacting with them. (I’m about a 1/3 of the way into it and has really been good for me socializing in general).

So to sum it all up. I came in here pretty broken and weak. I just hung on for dear life, staying in the forum until 4am a few times. Started taking on more challenges and risks. Now I feel solid within myself to try and do this dating thing again.

Finally, it is my personal belief that Pornography and the damage it does to men and women – is something that is demonic and really is a supernatural evil in our society. It was something that had its hooks into me just as if I were a heroin or crack addict. It made me a junkie and it took so many things from me. 90 days is a start – but only a start.

I DO NOT WANT TO EVER GO BACK TO THAT LIVING HELL.

Thank you all for helping me get here. I count you all as my brothers and sisters. One love.

  1. Dear sir/madam,

    What is the best way to break the cycle of porn addiction? I have this problem for almost 20 years and I really want my life to get back on track.

  2. What I did was “distracting myself”, every time I thaught about porn, I went to the gym, ran a kilometer, did some pushups or read a chapter of a book. Also made viewing porn as incovenient as possible, not having tissues near my bed, putting content protection on my browser, etc.

  3. I will get there next. I want to know that feeling of no fapping for 90 days or more. It is nice to hear your success stories. It creates a positive image. Keep going strong.

  4. This is really great

    90 days of bad habits changing to make oneself radiant

    In the face of pornography deliberately shaped and seduced by inner thoughts

    Real relationship shaping makes oneself incredibly happy

    Able to develop normal relationships and enjoy the joy of socializing

    Instead of constantly panicking and becoming unlike oneself, unable to do anything you want to do

    You’re right, 90 days is far from the end, it’s just the beginning

  5. i think bhavag gita is more related than bible because in gita you can see many person left porn and they explain its impacts in our life
    i myself changed because of bhavad gita spirtual book

  6. just keep trying, stop counting the days. Have a good routine, wake up early in the morning, trying getting as much sun light in the day as possible , avoid screens or bright/ blue light a couple of hours before sleep, get married in my opinion, FIND YOUR WHY AND PURPOSE AND PURSE THAT, IT WILL MAKE YOU SEE THE GREATER PICTURE AND WORK YOUR WAY WITH SMALLER GOALS EVERYDAY.
    1 GO GYM
    2 READ PHILOSOPHICAL OR SELF DEVELOPING BOOKS.
    3 WORK OUT YOUR/TRAIN ” FREE WILL MUSCEL”.
    4 GET BUSY WITH PEOPLE, BUT NOT BUSY.
    5 FIND A DAY TO COMPLETELY RELAX , NO PHONE,NO TV, JUST GO OUT,TO THE PARK OR JUST TAKE A WALK OR READ A BOOK.
    6 MEDITATE.
    7 DO SOME RUNNING
    8 EAT HEALTHY FOOD
    9 FIND YOUR SELF
    10 TRAVEL

  7. This was my New Year resolution, and it’s been 12 days now of No fap, but it really feel that urge of doing it and I thought “Not Today”.
    I had breakup because of this bad habit and I was also not able to enjoy sex properly.
    but now I go gym on regular basis, feel young.
    It’s just my last one hour gets a bit tough then I start reading experience and comments here.
    Thank you guys!

  8. I am very happy that I was able to reach 20 days of quitting.
    Two-ninths of the route was marked.
