I had been struggling with porn addiction for years, but had absolutely no idea how to go about stopping (I didn't know about the behavioural link between P-M-O, I thought I just had to address the P and everything would be fine, except it was impossible).
I'm 29 and have looked at porn since the age of 14, generally fapping most days, fairly frequently multiple times in one day. Although I often MO'ed without porn, I started thinking of myself as a porn addict years ago since I was unable to stop looking at it.
I've been doing NoFap for around a month and a half now. During that time, I've relapsed twice and learned how to avoid temptation with a far greater resolve than before. I'm 29 and suffered from serious PIED. There were two instances where I was with an incredibly attractive woman, and my body just had zero response
I'll mention another benefit: stronger libido. My sexual energy isn't out of control like it used to be. Now I can control it and when it does come into play, it's typically with a beautiful woman in the vicinity.
Some of the information I'll provide may seem trivial or even irrelevant (please feel free to skim it for what you want), but hopefully in its totality, it will lead to a more personal and detailed representation of who I am, what I stand for, and why I'm doing NoFap.
Well holy shit fellas. To say my whole life started over 130 days ago would be an understatement. Each stage of this journey brings something new, and I truly think that 90 days is the tip of the iceberg
I haven't had any wet dream or ejaculate in 3 months and I think this is why I have gotten all these benefits... in the last days I wake up feeling so horny and on the verge of orgasming and during the day I feel there is something moving in my hands and my feet, like an energy moving, the feeling is so energetic and gives me some nice feelings like mini orgasms throughout my body.
Dan Mahle on why he’s closing this chapter in his life
If you are a human being alive in the 21st century, chances are you have an opinion about porn. Maybe you use it; maybe you don’t. Maybe you think it’s good; maybe you think it’s bad; maybe you think it’s none of my business. Fine. The bottom line is this:Read more
