So I haven't fapped since December, and I've gone through multiple withdrawal phases where I nearly went insane during those periods, and even contemplated suicide. But every time I went through those phases, I would feel tremendous afterwards. So, brothers, hang in there during those really depressive points, let your brain and mind heal. So, by blocking porn and basically other ways of regenerating my dopamine reward system (not binging on youtube, etc.) has gotten me back to being sensitive, humane, and overall more confident. The truth here is that it doesn't give you superpowers; it just restores you back to the supposed you. Digest that, please. I started talking to my crush a week ago, and then yesterday we decided to workout together since we both are into it. While we were at the gym, I put my hands around her waist, and kissed her. She kissed back for a few moments, even frenched me. But then, she pulled back and said she shouldn't do this and that she got cheated on by her last boyfriend so she doesn't want to go too fast like last time, etc.. But anyhow, we talked into the night yesterday doing a school project together, and she said she really enjoyed spending time with me and that she was really happy. She also called me a 'gentleman', something that girls ALWAYS perceived me as my whole life. I know nowadays, being called a gentleman irks some men into thinking that they're not that 'bad boy', so aren't attractive to girls... But anyways guys, I hope that we can be something together later on. For the rest of ya'll who haven't have been avoiding fapping, I'm telling you, go HARD MODE. I nearly went insane during it, but my mind and body really healed during this. I'm sure I have more healing and building to do, but I'm at a way better point than I was a few months ago. Good luck, my fellow fapstronauts.
