26 year-old gay guy here. After a few good streaks, at the end of December, I told myself I would take it day by day and join the 2014 challenge. Well, it was extremely challenging but I made it to 90 days (no PMO - still MO).
I am currently in dental school about to graduate and I discovered nofap in my last quarter. Through college I was relatively clear minded, got good grades and all was well until professional school....
Over the last 115 days, I have been porn free and have fapped to completion three times. I started doing NoFap because of DE. I was with four women before this challenge, the first of which happened when I was 21, almost two years ago to date. I started fapping to porn regularly when I was 16. None of those four women were able to make me orgasm.
I am new to this forum and reddit in general but I wanted to share that I just got to 4 years, PMO free in Janaury. I am married so there is still sexual activity in our marriage but for many years in my marriage I could not go more than a week w/o looking at porn and mast. I had symptoms of Porn ED and I lot of shame that stuck to me in my daily life.
Aside from the ego boost, I wanted to post this to point out that it takes everyone different amounts of time to make it far in this challenge. I just today completed my first 100 days hardmode, no fantasy, no MO streak, along with cold showers for about 4-5 months (which has been going on longer than this streak).
I know a lot of what I'll say has probably already been said. Though the title says that I offer advice, and I do, I'm doing this, selfishly, mostly for myself. Quitting porn has been one of the most eye opening experiences thus far.
