Age 20 - Quitting PMO definitely helped lower my anxiety & depression, I feel more confident, My mind is a lot clearer

I can't remember when I was on here probably 3 or 4 months ago, that was a real gross time in my life but I just wanted to post on here because I've been getting urges lately and that kind of reminded me of this site. Somewhere along my streak (which I'm still on, didn't relapse) I forgot all about this site, which is actually a good thing. Being on [nofap] all day probably isn't a good thing for you if you're trying to live a better life.

Age 21 – PIED gone, higher self-image, confidence boost

I realized that i could always get it up during sexy time with my so, but always has a hard time cumming unless i grasped it with my hand, which indeed is very detrimental to our sexual relationship. Ever since i stopped it’s been a gradual process, but now i can confidently say that my ED's definitely gone :)

Age 42 - One year, PIED healed, knowing the science really helped

I want to say how important all this teaching and science has helped me. Prior to July 8th of 2015, I thought I was taking porn to me with the grave. I had all kinds of problems sexually. I love my fiancé, but I couldn't sustain an erection during sex. I also felt my life was out of control. I couldn't move forward. Every month or so, I'd do a flurry of work for a few days and then crash and burn. It was like that for a year. I wanted to commit suicide. But I'm not that victim anymore.

Age 23 - PIED cured: During the last 3 months, I've been having constant great sex like any normal 23 should.

Six months ago I had sex for the first time in my life and it was one of the worst things the ever happened. I'm 23 years old, been constantly (like really constantly) fapping for 10 years. Probably this was the main reason why I never really felt like I’m missing something. I never knew that porn and sex is different.

Steve Harvey Show (PIED)

GO TO 28:03 FOR PIED SEGMENT. Never mind the shaky advice from the counselor that there is always a deeper issue causing porn use, it's good to see the issue of PIED going mainstream.

Stay strong everyone, this shit really works: I Find Porn Disgusting Now

Just tried watching porn to see if I could get turned on because I am in a flatline... found the video disturbing. Saw through the fakeness of it all... nothing is real about what the actors/actresses are doing. Stay strong everyone, this shit really works!!

NoFap has changed my life. I have the power to go through life and fix problems

I finally reached the 90 day mark. I will describe my journey. I have failed so many times on NoFap. Just because I didn't had the right method. I always relapsed and then I said I'm not going to do it [use porn] anymore.. And bam! I relapsed. This led to not feeling myself in my own body. Not in control.

Age 17 - I have experienced massive changes in myself as compared to what I was 138 days ago

I hope you all are doing great. My last post here was when I was on day 20 or something. But here I am today on day 138 of no PMO. I am 17 and I have been living usually alone for 2 years and you all know these crazy teen years makes you want to do crazy stuff. But I still somehow managed to quit PMO. Let me go back a little bit and tell you how I was like when I was addicted to pornography and masturbation.

Age 38 - PIED healed, good memory, better mood

Today 100 days passed....No more urge to see porn or fap .Mind is completely towards real women ! Lots of Mental Benefits: No fogy brain, good memory , mood changed , less depression , no feeling of emptiness ! [I am a] Male | 38 | 10 years PMO cycle trap | PIED made me to quit. I am single ....i faced ED i was searching for that why i got ED but found that it is PIED instead of ED. So i decided to quit .Totally rebooted now!

Age 34 - I feel so much more happy now. I learned that there is a gift in facing uncomfortable feelings.

I remember thinking at one point in my life after numerous failed attempts to stop masturbating [to porn] that it was impossible. That this was something I was stuck with for the rest of my days. And there was comfort in the general consensus in society that jerking off and porn were "Normal" and even healthy.

Age 24 - Motivation high

I'm 24. I've been getting really high motivation from abstaining myself from [porn]. Sometimes my emotion are not stable maybe due to T level. There are a lot of benefits. I myself am starting to go to many marathon events. Which really helps calm myself down. I discover that joining this kind of activity really improves one's mood.

1 year - I finally feel like a MAN

I was fapping at least two times per since I was 12 and as the years went by regular porn was not enough anymore (I don’t want to put triggers, all of us know how it is). Deep down I knew that I have a problem but it seemed impossible to stop. In past three years I tried to stop but best I managed was 20 days. I should also mention that my experience with women and social skills in general are nothing special. I had a girlfriend 2 years and some occasional sex if I get "lucky," but never truly made emotional connection with any of them.

Age 18 - From "dumb and lazy" to pre-med

Hi everyone, I'm taking a break from my studies to write this post. I've been on NoFap since January 2016, so I figure it's my turn to document my journey. Before I dive into this, I would like to thank everyone on this subreddit; without your help and support day after day, I would be in an extremely lonely, depressed state. I grew so much as a man, and I hope that I am able to repay that through helping someone out there through this post.

Age 18 - Social Anxiety Gone

I remember being in my room playing RuneScape 10 hours a day and watching porn. I used to go to school fapped out my eyes were twitching and my hair was bad. I remember feeling like a tweaker and being a chronic fapper 1-5 times a day. I was afraid of talking to people I would hate waking up and people were looking at me at school.

Now socializing makes me happy. I go to college now and I walk up to any person boy/girl and yes even the "Hot women" or what men would call "10's".
