Chapter 4: MIXED FEELINGS
What am I supposed to tell you? Should I tell you I feel better? Then that would be a lie. I never got better. I still remember the moment I relapsed. It wasn’t worth it at all. I didn’t feel any entertainment. 1 moment of happiness got followed by 100 others of depression, regret and shame.
I have never felt that bad after a relapse.
When I relapsed after my first ever trial of NoFap, after 27 days of happiness, I was destroyed. I was thinking now, what made me relapse that day? I had thoughts. Same exact reason how I relapsed that day. However, previously I used to watch movies, series and spend lots of time on Instagram. Now I deleted Instagram, and stopped watching movies and series, completely.
So what is different? Was it that my hope and energy to continue declined? Impossible, I was the happiest person ever. I was very happy and satisfied. I lived 22 days of my new life. I saw how it would be. Man, whenever a girl passes by me, I get hard. Now, everything different.
Ok, so you’re waiting for me to tell you I feel better? No, I did not lose hope yet. I am strong. I am not the first person to relapse, and won’t be the last. Then, a relapse did teach me something. I need to reorganize my thoughts and see what I did wrong.
And as someone once told me:
There is nothing called a bad relapse if it did teach you something.
I hope, this relapse teaches me something. And I hope I return back stronger. I only live life once, and I shouldn’t waste it on some aimless fantasies that makes my God mad at me.
