Age 26 - ED: I am confident now, I am sure of myself - no longer controlled by addiction.

Making friendsAt 45 days I wrote a pretty successful report that people seemed to like. It emphasized how NoFap wasn't really about masturbating. It was about taking back control over your life.

Age 35 - extreme feishes, DE & ED, lack of intimacy

Happy guyHow crazy is that! 35 years old, had lots of sex over the years but never any intimacy and never a steady girlfriend due to:

  • no confidence to speak to the girls I wanted
  • unrealistic expectations
  • low self esteem
  • feelings of unworthiness

Also suffered from escalating sexual fantasies due to years of daily porn viewing. My journey was topless women -> straight sex -> hard stuff -> embarrassing fetishes. These fetishes have totally disappeared which is amazing.

Age 20 - more outgoing & motivated, rarely get mood swings, the world has regained its lost color & sound

Rocky mountainsI know I'm not the first to reach this achievement, but I am proud to say I did it on my first attempt. So it goes without saying the benefits have been substantial.

Age 33 - success with a new women, years of porn addiction & ED

happy coupleI started masturbating at around 10 to clothed pictures of girls in magazine, also would watch scrambled playboy channel on the TV late night and would sometimes go 5 times in a night at the age of 11-12 on the weekends cause I was bored.

Age 22 - Proactive, social, energetic, confident - all my friends & co-workers have noticed

D JI'm a 22 year old male on my current longest streak (29 days) and thought I would share with you the list of positive changes I can see in myself, along with a word of advice.

The importance of delaying gratification

delayed gratification sloganThe ability to delay gratification is a crucial life skill that we all develop to varying degress as we gain a mature perspective on the world. Young children completely lack this ability. Whatever they need or want, they believe they have to have it right now. As we grow up, we begin to learn how to be patient and wait for the things we want. We don't pee in our pants, we wait until we find a bathroom.

On whether this addiction ever goes away

Question markSomeone on Reddit recently asked me, "Does this addiction ever officially go away? My future dreams and goals can't rely on me consistently maintaining sobriety from this addiction. I want it gone forever and always."

Age 20 - My life is 10 million percent better now and I have all of you guys to thank.

Age 25 - cured of my ED and DE

young guyMy story: I'm a 25 year old guy. I've been watching porn regularly for about 10 years. And been masturbating on average once a day since i discovered it 14 years ago. I have had sex with a lot of different girls. My problem though was, that I often times couldn't get it up (even with viagra/cialis).

Age 26 - ED cured. 97 days Hard mode.

happy coupleIt has been confirmed! Recently, I had reached my 90 day hardmode goal in hopes of being cured of PIED. Long story short, my buddy [penis] was functioning at roughly 60% a couple years ago and around 30% in the past year. You can imagine the depressing lack of confidence that came with that.
