Bros, it's time to get this crap out of your life. It's holding you back or destroying your life and you don't even realize it. It did for me. It doesn't matter what religion you are, how much money you have, how much life sucks, or what your career is, but life is too short and time is too precious to spend hours each week having sex with yourself.
I started lifting again, and I'm about 3 months in. I'm lifting heavier and progressing faster than ever before. I think it's mainly the extra energy nofap gives me to power through the extra reps. Also the extra concetration doesn't hurt. I realize this subject has been brought up millions of times, but I thought I'd reinforce it. Hit 90 days yesterday and not looking back. I've experienced most of the basic benefits:
I no longer feel the need to come to community to vent or seek inspiration. The positive benefits of NoFap have become so apparent to me that I could never go back to the man I was before. Here is what I have experienced:
Around 9 months ago a lovely lady undressed in front of me <...>. I didn't feel absolutely anything. I didn't want it at all. She was quite surprised: "Are you not horny?" I thought: "You are just a girl and not those two extremely beautiful and fit BDSM lesbian gals I've been looking at the whole week".
First of all, I find these kinds of posts motivating and inspiring. It affirms that what I'm doing is good for me and for a lot of men and women out there. Secondly, I'm currently on my longest streak for 2016. I signed up for a standard reboot and I'm going strong! Lastly, as for the benefits that I see, I find myself:
COMMENTS: In this study, as in others, the designation "Compulsive Sexual Behaviors" (CSB) probably means the men were porn addicts. I say this because the CSB subjects averaged nearly 20 hours of porn use per week. The controls averaged 29 minutes per week. Interestingly, 3 of the 20 CSB subjects suffered from "orgasmic-erection disorder," while none of the control subjects reported sexual problems.
Main Findings: The neural correlates of appetitive conditioning and neural connectivity were altered in the CSB group.
Nobody told me that 14 years ago I could succumb to an addiction I wasn't prepared for. That it would not only ruin my relationship with my best friend who happened to be a girl and keep us from falling in love like we would have but that it would also drive me, eventually to not only hate myself but to have little to no faith or trust in other human beings around me.
Success!!! First time cumming in so long! I can’t even believe I am writing this, I feel like a miracle has taken place. It has been 10 days since starting no PMO. I have read story after story of success from DE and always knew I could do it but of course still questioned if it would ever happen to me.
It's been over a year since I've gotten back on to this website. Can't believe the progress I've made... It's been about 2 and a half years since my last viewing, and boy, have things improved. Especially in the downstairs department. Anyways, I'll briefly share my story and tell you guys what daily life is like for me now.
It's obvious that porn usage causes low dopamine levels. Which in turn, causes negative physical response from the body. For years, I was never satisfied with life. I felt there was always something missing. I felt as if there was a hole in my chest that couldn't be filled. I drifted farther and farther from the right course to find something to make me feel... to let me feel.
I have been dealing with Delayed Ejaculation my entire life, I am 30 years now, and I can tell you living with this is extremely embarrassing, humiliating, and most of all frustrating. But let me give everybody here some encouragement, it CAN be fixed, 100%, no questions asked.
As a 34 year old married father of three, I imagine I am in a different demographic than many on here. I was a virgin until I married at 26 years of age. My virginity was due to having grown up in a strict religious home. We didn't talk about sex or sexuality much in my home growing up.
