Age 31 - There are beautiful women all around waiting for us

It's been almost half year since I started this nofap journey. I was depressed guy that lost his direction in life after a divorce, but I quit porn and worked on myself slowly and I indeed changed.

Age 30 - 32 days hard mode. Fighting HOCD.

I've wanted to write something for a while as I know a lot of people here are working through HOCD. I've been lurking here since I started my reboot and this forum has been a massive source of inspiration for me. I need to write this but I am finding this really difficult to write, even on an anonymous forum. I stumbled upon NoFap almost by accident, then YBOP made me realise that a lot of my problems were probably porn related and HOCD (I actually didn't realise you could have HOCD until I read that).

Till Porn Do Us Part? Longitudinal Effects of Pornography Use on Divorce, (2016)

Link - Pornography use associated with increase in probability of divorce

SEATTLE -- Beginning pornography use is associated with a substantial increase in the probability of divorce for married Americans, and this increase is especially large for women, finds a new study that will be presented at the 111th Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association (ASA).

"Beginning pornography use between survey waves nearly doubled one's likelihood of being divorced by the next survey period, from 6 percent to 11 percent, and nearly tripled it for women, from 6 percent to 16 percent," said Samuel Perry, the lead author of the study and an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Oklahoma. "Our results suggest that viewing pornography, under certain social conditions, may have negative effects on marital stability."

Age 21 - How I cured my sexual dysfunctions (ED and PIED and desensitization) and how you can too

If you read this, I assume porn ruined your sexual life. Maybe, just like me 2 years and a half ago, you just discovered that you can't have an erection with a girl. This is what happened to me, and it was difficult. But I am cured, and I am going to tell you exactly what to do, how do to it and why to resolve this issue in your life.

Age 25 - First date in years on Day 90

Yesterday I went for coffee with a girl I managed to ask out two weeks ago. When I dropped her off at home, she invited me in and we chatted some more. We lost track of time to the extent that her family even invited me to stay for supper.

Age 35 - 60 days: Porn-induced ED appears to be cured

Today it's been 60 days since I watched porn! It feels damn good but the real good news is I don't think about watching porn very often anymore. I think about masturbating or having sex though but hey, I'm not made of stone.

How the proliferation of porn is ruining men's love lives. By Angela Gregory, Lead for Psychosexual Therapy, Chandos Clinic, Nottingham U. Secretary British Society of Sexual Medicine (2016)

Some people don't believe in porn addiction, but I've seen its effects first hand.

By Angela Gregory August 19, 2016 (link to original article)

For the past 16 years I have worked full-time as an NHS sexual and relationship psychotherapist, treating men and women with a range of sexual difficulties. Sexual problems can have a medical or psychological ethology or a mixture of both.

Age 26 – Deeper voice, outstanding sex

I've been a supporter of NoFap since before NoFap. Telling my friends I lose energy after I beat off, one of them looking me in the face and telling me that's a lie. I should of listened to myself when I made that judgement about my body in highschool. I'm now 26.

Age 23 - I plow through obstacles, make decisions quickly and confidently

I just finished day 75 and I feel great. My technique is to work on advancing life every free moment of the day. If I have an urge I just grind harder. At the end of the day I am tired and my mind is absorbed in creative thoughts.

I feel fully charged every day, comfortable with myself and with women

  1. Energy levels are high and constant. Developed good posture.
  2. Confident everyday, in every situation. Strong sense of inner power. Comfortable being who I am.
  3. Better health, skin, hair, eyes are bright and shiny.
  4. Not objectifying women. Just letting things be as it is naturally. Not preoccupied with sex or indulging in sexual fantasies.

"Is virtual reality the future of online pornography?" (BBC)

Without pornography, the internet as we know it today, would not exist.

It's a bold claim, but some experts credit porn with popularising many online activities we take for granted. These range from video streaming and webcams, to credit card transactions to opt-in email subscriptions. Virtual reality is one area the technology industry is looking to make big money - and the developers of sex toys, cam sites and porn videos are already staking their claims.

Age 21 - Thinking clearly, can hold a conversation, letting go of bullshit faster

I wanted to share with you all some of the "superpowers" as some say, that I have experienced in the past 71 days. Previously, all my attempts as NoFap would usually end at somewhere around the days in the 20s. My previous highest steak was 52.

8.5 months and going strong

8.5 months going strong. I found out about this sub in nov 2015. The best thing i think would be my work's been a while since anyone have nagged me in office for not doing my job good enough.

Age 30 - I feel younger, my skin is glowing, curiosity has returned

I’ve learned a lot about myself in the past 90 days, I’m not sure if I’ll ever be healed. The Good News I don’t feel as old. With a seemingly infinite pain tolerance, I can workout like I did in high school, my skin has returned the olive glow it had when I was in middle school and my genuine curiosity for how the world works and how people think continue to blossom in ways that deepen the contrasting colorfulness of life’s challenges.
