Welcome to this next lesson.
It’s good to see you.
Before we dive deep into our program, let me tell you my story.
Story of a porn addict
When I was about 8 years old, I found a magazine with pictures of naked women and fantasized over them.
I also noticed that leaning on objects with my penis gave me a special kind of pleasure.
And I was in for a lot of trouble.
One day, my friend found a VHS tape with porn that his parents had.
So he invited me and other guys over to watch it.
That thing blew my mind.
And later, around 12, I discovered I could stimulate myself so easily with my own hand.
So this is when porn entered my life…
And it was there to stay for the next 20 years.
I was already shy at that point.
Especially around girls.
I felt embarrassed about talking to them, not knowing how my parents would react.
Weird, I know!
Porn made my shyness worse.
I felt shameful and had to hide it.
I thought something was wrong with me.
As a result, I missed 5 years of dating, from 16 to 21.
Dating and relationships
I never dated as a teenager.
I got my first girlfriend only at 21.
Thanks to that, I stopped watching porn for about two years.
But when we were about 2 years into the relationship, I started watching it again.
At that point, we had tension in the relationship which gave me an “excuse” to escape reality.
Still, we got married soon, and I stayed away from porn for another year.
At 27, however, I hit a low point in my life because my dog had died tragically.
I developed a serious addiction to porn and jerking off because it gave me a quick escape from depression.
But in the end, it was instant gratification: felt good but never lasted.
And it made me even more depressed because I ended up feeling shame and guilt on top of depression.
Plus, I hated the feeling of lacking self-discipline and wasting time and energy.
So when I was 32, I said “Enough” and went porn-free.
I’ve been on NoFap for almost 7 years so far.
And I had two short relapses that only confirmed that this is the right thing for me.
Here are some of the benefits:
- I enjoy real sex rather than watching naked people have fake sex online.
- Porn no longer holds me back from tapping my full potential.
- I don’t hurt my girlfriend by watching porn behind her back.
- I am more confident.
- I harness the energy and motivation that I would otherwise waste jerking off.
- I feel in control of my life, enjoying the conscious choice of right living.
Do you want this for yourself?
And you are on the right path.
