I began my NoFap journey in mid December of last year. At that time I had decided that I was unsatisfied with my life. For context, I want to stress that, at least on the surface, my life appeared to be going great, and it is important to note that this really wasn't an inaccurate assessment.
I'm slowly moving away from this subreddit and technology in general and focusing more on real life. Heh I just finished playing board games with my parents for a few hours, and that never happens because most teens cant get their heads out of their darn phones, and I used to be one of them.
I've done several streaks before, lasting anywhere from 2 weeks to about a month. This streak has been incredible though!! I almost forgot to even write this post because I’ve been so occupied with life!!
I first started looking at softcore photos aged 12-13 but by 15/16 is when I started watching porn. I never strayed away from straight/lesbian or solo and watched it 3-7 times a week religiously over that period. Looking back my taste didn't change but the 'quality' of the material got better i.e I started downloading films rather than using pornhub.
I started off like many of you (presumably), seen as introverted, lack of style, or overall poor aesthetics. A kissless virgin, and a bitter depressed cynical narcissist. Oh.. And of course a ragging fapping addict since I was 14. I knew something had to change or I was doomed to suffer a sad and lonely life.
I'm 30 yo, married and a father of few kids. Was struggling with masturbation for 20 years and with porn for 9 years on and off. As any slavery you never feel that something is wrong until you hit the rock bottom.
I had a lot of bad habits like playing video games, not exercising, not getting shit done, being a lazy fuck, flunking school, etc... When I started Nofap, I was 19. It was a decision i took because I was going on my 20th birthday and I was still a virgin.
I've recently determined I have PIED. As part of this, I've never been able to cum with a partner without basically masturbating during intimacy to get me close to orgasm. I would also have to concentrate on porn/porn-style scenarios to stay erect.
