Age 23 - My mind is strangely clear, pure, BEAUTIFUL

I've been on Nofap for 2 years, but now I have drastically reduce the amount of fapping to 2 times a week. I used to fap 4~7 times a day since before my puberty (11yo). Yeah, that shit destroyed me.

Age 24 - PIED: Biggest Skeptic No Longer Skeptical

I'm currently on my second stint trying this philosophy, and I am one of the most cynical and suspicious people, especially when it comes to theories that appear too good to be true. I had been watching porn and whacking off to late night BET videos with the a$$es twerking (HAHA) and sex scenes from horror movies since I was about 13.

Age 14 - What a journey it has been

Damn, what a journey it has been. If you were to tell me three months ago that; 1. I'd be running 6km twice a day, 2. That i'd finally give up porn and masturbation and most importantly that I would be training for an Amateur Boxing tournament. I would've certainly laughed at you.

Age 20 - Mild ED gone, Less depression, Feel way more emotions, Take more risks

Wow, it’s been a crazy 2 year journey. I’m now 20m college student and it feels like only yesterday that I quit porn. I’m also about a year and a half into a nofap streak. Some noticeable improvements include

Age 28 - I was in a hole so deep and dark there was absolutely no glimpse of light/hope- but now it’s sunny as hell here

3 Year Anniversary and How do I feel ? That your life doesn't end and begin as soon you turn on your computer or your phone in the morning. That you are not alone in this world. You can relate to people from any background or situation. You feel their pain and joy. You feel their souls. They know it, you know it.

Why did my porn use escalate?

Porn addiction often escalatesThrough the last years of this addiction my taste for porn evolved. Started watching femdom porn where a girl beats, insults and fucks a guy with a strapon,  cuckold/cheating porn, which seemed to make me get much more interested in women that had a husband/boyfriend, even if she wasnt that good looking, the whole  cheating taboo made me crazy. Even a "softer" porn genre like MILFs ended up making me more attracted towards older women that had children, making me want to   fuck my classmates mom, teachers. Still does dammit.

The Dual Control Model - The Role Of Sexual Inhibition & Excitation In Sexual Arousal And Behavior (2007)

COMMENTS: A recent re-discovery. The first paper to report porn-induced ED and porn-induced low libido. In an experiment employing video porn, 50% of the young men couldn't become aroused or achieve erections with porn (average age was 29). The shocked researchers discovered that the men's erectile dysfunction was "related to high levels of exposure to and experience with sexually explicit materials." The limp men had spent a whole of lot of time in bars and bathhouses where porn was "omnipresent," and continuously playing. The men explained that "high exposure to erotica seemed to have resulted in a lower responsivity to "vanilla sex" erotica and an increased need for novelty and variation.

Age 51 - PIED better, back in shape, fantasies are about girls I know

I'm five days short of going 90 full days without PMO and I thought I do a little write up in hopes that some of you out there might get something out of it. About me, I'm a 51-year old male, divorced, and I first started MO around 13 and using porn around 18 (magazines mostly).

Age 26 - From porn addiction to sex addiction?

26 - Heterosexual Male. Since the age of 13 or 14 I started looking at PMO. I am currently 25 and have not had a libido the majority of my adult life due to PMO rewiring my brain. For the past 2 years I have been on some semblance nofap with periodic relapses but already have transitioned from essentially being effectively asexual/having no libido to someone with a libido.

Age 20 - They will never know why I'm changing so much

I wish I found this sub the first day I started PMO... I am 20 now... I started PMOing very intense at the age of 16. [I don’t discuss NoFap.] I keep it a secret. My reason for keeping it secret, is because I love how shocked people get at how much I am changing. Haha they are all like ''WTF HAPPENED TO YOU!? YOU ARE SO DIFFERENT!''

Age 20 - Delayed Ejaculation cured - I have more motivation, a better memory, increased confidence, and my brain fog is almost completely gone

For those who are struggling or still not sure if they want to go porn free, JUST DO IT. Your future self will thank you for making one of the best fucking decisions of your life. I can honestly say this is the happiest I've been in a long time.
