Through trial and error I can now proudly say that I am one of those that have completed three months. Three months that has been a rollercoaster ride for first two months and the last month has been a blast. Porn has also no longer been a part of me in 6 months and before that I have also excluded that from my life in almost a year but came back to PMO before I found this subreddit.
First of all, wow. I began the NoFap journey over a year ago, and I only just completed 90 days yesterday. It's been a long and sometimes difficult process, but it's also been an amazing and transformational time in my life. Over the 90 day streak that I just completed, I got my first girlfriend, and spent the night with a girl after taking her on just one date. The transformation in me has been nothing short of profound.
It is easy to shrug, but the effect of what children are watching online is becoming impossible to ignore
With typical good sense, Emma Thompson has said that she wrote a handbook on sex and emotion for her 13-year-old daughter. Any parent recognises the sterling wisdom of putting it in writing rather than uttering panicky interdictions or forcing unwelcome “little talks” on a squirming teenager. Link to scan of article
(Disclaimer - text may be a little bit NSFW/tmi-for-some in places) 100+ days ago, reading reports from other NoFappers about the progress they'd made really helped me find my footing, so I'm sharing this to hopefully give something back to the community for those who are just starting out now. I've been absent from NoFap for quite some time, quite honestly because life has been going so well for me right now,
So I have cut my porn use down to nothing for four months with about 3-4 one time relapses and have stopped masturbating for the better part of a month. For about 3 years I thought I was completely impotent and could barely get it up even when I had a girl sitting in my lap.
I just recently turned 20 years old and somehow stumbled upon this site...anyways i am a 20 year old college sophomore going into my junior year and well i haven't really had sex yet... It's not that i'm unattractive
First off, I started this challenge mostly just as a challenge. I PMO:d around once or twice a week, so it wasn't really an addiction. The reason I started was that I wanted to challenge myself and after reading some posts here, I wanted to see if I would experience some of the same benefits many described here in their posts.
Pre masturbation I led a happy life: I was surrounded by good friends, I got good grades, excelled in sport and despite feeling awkward around girls still realised that they were interested in me. I did suffer from stints of depression but it never managed to have a serious impact on me.
