When I first started NoFap, I could get streaks of 4-7 days. I was 20 years old at the time, with very few responsibilities during summer semester. I lived with my parents and didn’t get offered a work contract that summer, so I was free to spend 8-16 hours on my laptop every day. Just drinking coffee, killing time on forums, reading articles, and watching Youtube videos.
When you spend all day on home internet, porn is only one tab away.
That’s the reality of home internet. If you’re serious about NoFap, home internet is insanity. It’s absolute insanity. If you go online “just for the articles”, or “just for the forums”…..that’s like an struggling alcoholic hanging out at a bar “just to see his drinking buddies”, an alcoholic hanging out at a bar “just for the conversation.” If your little brother was an alcoholic doing that, wouldn’t you tell him to take his ass to a cafe instead?
This is a very common scenario. Someone with an internet-porn addiction lets themselves spend hours alone on the internet, in private. First day, no problems. Second day, no problems. I guarantee by the end of the first week, they’re gonna have some problems. And yeah, they can use willpower. They can fight it. And that’s fine. But it’s a lot easier when “The Internet” is two blocks away, and you need to put shoes on first and grab your backpack.
Catch you next time you’re at a cafe, eh.
