"Another Study Links Compulsive Sexual Behavior to Other Forms of Addiction" by Robert Weiss LCSW

biasStatus Quo (For Now). In mid-July I published a blog discussing a recently released fMRI (brain imaging) study showing that the brain activity of sex addicts, when they are shown pornography, mirrors the brain activity of drug addicts when they are exposed to drug-related imagery.

Age 37 - ED is rarely a problem for me now. Relationship between my wife and I has drastically improved.

happy coupleI want to start by saying that I feel to be somewhat in the minority here, since I am older and married 18 years - that's more years than some of you have been alive. I'm not doing this in hard mode, and I am trying to have sex as often as I feel comfortable doing so.

Age 24 - ED cured: I'm 2 months away from 1 year fap free, its mind blowing to say the least.

mind blownMan has it been a long time since i was here! I can't believe I'm 2 months away from 1 year fap free, its mind blowing to say the least. I have certainly changed over the time I've been doing this, I met a girl about 6 months ago and we started dating not long after.

Age 17 - Clearer head, speak my mind, way more generous & sociable. first ever initmate relationship

young guySo I've just hit the big six-0; here's what I've gained out of the last 1440+ hours porn & fap free.

Age 32 - Chronic ED: maintained erection during sex for first time in 8 years

keep calm and rock hardJust want to say thanks to this forum and everyone on it. Using a throwaway account but a regular lurker on reddit and I stumbled across this forum a few months back. Tried a few times to break the cycle and finally made some progress with 34 days now since I fapped. Have been prescribed cialis by my doctor for years even though im only 32 years old.

Age 28 - Married: 365 days monk mode, 590 days total.

happy coupleI made a post awhile back about doing a 365 day monk mode nofap with a wife. On day 366 I made love to my wife. Since then I have stopped posting here. I was wondering what my counter was at so I decided to check in. Still going strong. I hope this simple check in can give hope to someone who thinks its impossible.

Age 27 - ED cured: Had the most intense orgasm of my life.

happy guyStarted Nofap a year ago last September. I've had varying streaks from my first 116 days to one month and less. Nofap has been a great tool to push forward in life and feel better in general. I'm a lot stronger,more confident, determined and happier than I was a year ago.

Age 20 - Medical student: I recovered from porn-induced ED in 5 months

med studentI'm a 20-year old medical student. I'm a pretty normal guy. I like hanging out with friends, playing sports and have never had any traumatic event in my life causing me to have caused a problem. I have recovered from Porn Induced ED

Age 48 - ED cured, feel more alive & confident. More friendly, bold, and flirty with women.

happy manToday, after over a year of working on my PMO addiction, going through personal troubles including divorce, and working on developing myself personally, I finally made it to 90 days straight with no PMO. I haven't edged or deliberately sought out or looked at erotica during that time, and did consistently try to avoid overly arousing material.

Age 36 - My mind is back to normal, and I function and perform like a normal adult male.

happy coupleDon't know if any of you remember me, but it will be two years this December since I began my healing. (search for my journal) So, an update after going on two years now...

New weapon against porn

Sentry.DNSThe internet, as it is today, is literally flooded with hardcore porn. It's always available, just a click away. We don't have to opt-in, agree to have it sent to us, or provide proof of age. It's there, all the time, in every home and on every device. Sadly, there is no easy way to opt-out at this time. I'm hoping for some sort of political action around this, and I do believe that will happen...eventually. But for now, all we have is the pornternet.

It Was Only When I Tried To Give Up Porn That I Realised How Much Was Out There (The Debrief)

The Debrief: And that sex without any assistance from porn was more than a little nerve-wracking…

It’s been a year since I gave up porn. I’d just escaped a tragic on-off relationship and I kept on finding myself in bed at 2pm on a Sunday having done nothing with my day other than watch people plunging whatever they could into each other’s orifices.
