I regret to tell you all that, last wednesday, after 25 days of No-Fap, I failed. I must say, immediately after my failure occurred I felt kinda refreshed, and was almost congratulating myself for lasting as long as I did (a new pb)…but needless to say, after a few days of falling back into my old routine, I feel like absolute shit! I have a number of excuses which I think, them even being in present in my mind prior to my relapse, may have played a part in my downfall, but I’m not here to make excuses.
Since last wednesday I’ve noticed my No-Fap free flowing confidence has fallen away completely, my thoughts are scrambled at times, I have trouble focussing and I just don’t feel good about myself at all. As a result, I’m going to start again!
I’ve oftened heard the phrase “failure is the key to success”, and I believe in this instance, it may very well be so. I’ve taken a number of things away from my previous failure, which I plan to use to my advantage this time round. For one, I’ve written a letter to future me explaining why I started no-fap, how I’ll feel if i break it and how I can get through the lows. I’ve also come up with a game plan which is to take each day as it comes rather than focussing on the end result. I full heartedly believe if I take the challenge day by day, even hour by hour if need be, my chances of going the distance will be much increased. I’m not playing around any more, this is 100% going to happen!
To those of you who think I’m just some dumb student being played by the placebo effect, I say, try It yourself. Some of the effects may be placebo effects, but others, I can guarantee are not!
Sorry for letting anyone down that was rooting for me. I hope my results from my attempt#1 will provide some insight for you all and I’ll keep you posted on my progress this time round (and will try not to bore you with the nitty gritties of no-fap life).
All the best,
The Bant Merchant
