I recently thought about how to create a certain nofap-approach that´s optimally working for my life. Since I consider myself too young for having sex regularly ( I am 16 ) I asked myself if having planned relapses could be a good way for my future, because abstinence for the next years seems unrealistic and I think that this would somehow control my life way too much.
Therefore I wanted to ask all of you, mostly the experienced members, if anyone of you knows about the span of time that has to pass after a relapse to feel the benefits again. Based on this I would like to create a plan that goes like 30 days abstinence one day masturbation without porn or something like this.
Thank you all for participating in this wonderful community. it´s the frendliest forum I´ve founnd in the internet in my whole life
EDIT: After searching through the Forum I feel like most of you want to quit at least porn and masturbation forever. Somehow this imagination scares me, but I guess this could be the dopamine receptors that are trying to trick me into relapsing. I am going to stay strong, at least to reach my goal. After that I can still see how to proceed, but first I need to have some data I can base my evaluations on.
What seems an interesting question to me: If I am scared by the imagination of quitting porn and masturbation forever, can I be considere addicted? I would have never considered myself to be addicted, but on the other hand I think, that the fact, that quitting forever feels so hard, shows, that actually I am.
