1 year - PIED cured. Got in shape and made substantial progress to my long term goals

This site helped me out a lot. I cured my ED got in shape and made substantial progress to my long term goals. I learned that I had the ability to change my life if I channeled my inner will power. Didn't think in a million years that I could hold out for a year (a person who would fap and watch porn daily) but I did it!

Age 16 - Extreme fetishes gone, Made lots of friends, More social, Body has changed

 282 days ago, I would have fapped 2-5 times a day, imagine girls in my bed, weird fetishes, but it changed a lot. Motivational quotes had no impact on me. I disliked writing in a journal every day. Your typical 16 years old guy playing video games, fapping, and staying lonely avoiding talking to girls, rather shy with everyone. Well all of that changed believe me. My personal kind of motivation was WORKING OUT.

Age 19 - A very bad case of Delayed Ejaculation cured. Sex feels way better.

 NoFap really changed my life. It's probably gonna be a long post, sorry about that. I started masturbating around 12 years old, I think. At first it was all new and exciting, and quickly became a habit. Masturbating was a normal thing to me. For years, I did it almost daily, and usually while watching porn. Things started to change when I was 17 years old. I was still a virgin and orgasm without porn was getting difficult, taking longer each time.

1 year porn free - Porn-induced ED

First I want to explain that everyone is unique and this is hopefully for the best. Everyone has their own metabolism and psychology, even if for some of your friends porn may be an option, you need to decide whether you want to get rid of it or not.

Age 21 - Escalated into extreme fetish porn and thought I was bisexual. Cutting out porn changed everything.

So, as the title says, I am a 21 year old male. Today, I type this from my apartment with nothing but hopes for the future and appreciation for my past. Before I explain why I appreciate my past, I'll try to go through what it was like as quickly as possible.

Addiction Is A Lonely Liar

I was trapped. I wanted desperately to escape. Like a trapped animal I would have chewed off my leg if it meant my freedom. Here more of Josh's story:

Ventral striatum activity when watching preferred pornographic pictures is correlated with symptoms of internet pornography addiction (2016)

New German fMRI study that aligns with the porn addiction model. 

Highlights as stated by the authors:

  • Neural basis of Internet pornography addiction is comparable to other addictions

Age 30 - Sex without boner pills! (PIED)

I've read a few posts about using Viagra or similiar drugs for that matter. Many of these posts were speaking poorly of them and that will affect your recovery. So here is my story (I keep it short) and my experience with the piils and how they helped since the start of my now 30 day streak now.

Age 24 - From serious addiction to a new social life

The post you're about to read is meant to share my story how I have come this far from a serious addiction and the purpose would be to help others who are struggling with leaving any destructive habits behind from their lives. I'm 24 years old now and I started watching porn at the age of 7, unfortunately. This really has caused great havoc within my life throughout the years and I will now share my story since it feels like first time in my life Im actually starting to feel normal.

Age 17 - Energetic, adventurous, see women differently

This year alone was probably the best I've had in my life for a handful of reasons including:

*not being scared to approach new people (mainly girls). I was extremely socially anxious around people I didn't know. Today it is completely different and I am shocked by how I was in the past.

Age 23 - PIED, I was a wreck 3 years ago

Age 26 - From hero to zero...and back!

6 years old: start to play football (soccer), a young kid with a lot of passion. From 11 to 15 years old: I am the best player of the team, the fastest, the most resistant, the strongest mind: I am the one who never quit! Some big teams start to scouting me. 15 years old: start to masturbating every day.
