Addiction Is A Lonely Liar

I was trapped. I wanted desperately to escape. Like a trapped animal I would have chewed off my leg if it meant my freedom. Here more of Josh's story:

Ventral striatum activity when watching preferred pornographic pictures is correlated with symptoms of internet pornography addiction (2016)

New German fMRI study that aligns with the porn addiction model. 

Highlights as stated by the authors:

  • Ventral striatum activity is linked to watching preferred pornographic material
  • Symptoms of Internet pornography addiction are linked to ventral striatum activity
  • Neural basis of Internet pornography addiction is comparable to other addictions

Age 30 - Sex without boner pills! (PIED)

I've read a few posts about using Viagra or similiar drugs for that matter. Many of these posts were speaking poorly of them and that will affect your recovery. So here is my story (I keep it short) and my experience with the piils and how they helped since the start of my now 30 day streak now.

Age 24 - From serious addiction to a new social life

The post you're about to read is meant to share my story how I have come this far from a serious addiction and the purpose would be to help others who are struggling with leaving any destructive habits behind from their lives. I'm 24 years old now and I started watching porn at the age of 7, unfortunately. This really has caused great havoc within my life throughout the years and I will now share my story since it feels like first time in my life Im actually starting to feel normal.

Age 17 - Energetic, adventurous, see women differently

This year alone was probably the best I've had in my life for a handful of reasons including:

*not being scared to approach new people (mainly girls). I was extremely socially anxious around people I didn't know. Today it is completely different and I am shocked by how I was in the past.

Age 23 - PIED, I was a wreck 3 years ago

Guys - Nofap can fix us. Im not sure what day im on but i haven't pmo'd since the 1st day of December. First of all I'm 23 and i started attempting nofap 3 years ago. When i failed to get it up for the girl of my dreams.

Age 26 - From hero to zero...and back!

6 years old: start to play football (soccer), a young kid with a lot of passion. From 11 to 15 years old: I am the best player of the team, the fastest, the most resistant, the strongest mind: I am the one who never quit! Some big teams start to scouting me. 15 years old: start to masturbating every day.

College of Charleston: Noah Church and Todd Love (video)

On November 16, 2015, the College of Charleston's "Think Differently Forum" addressed the topic of porn use as a potential for harm. Author and coach Noah B.E. Church and Dr. Todd Love, a psychotherapist whose practice focuses on patients with porn-related problems, led the discussion.

Age 19 - More determined, looks from females

I have seen so many benefits. Feel more determined to complete things. I get looks from many females everywhere.

Fun Fap/NoFap experiment measuring female attention

An experiment I decided to do regarding the attention you might or might not get when you dont ejaculate. Experiment lasted 10 weeks. I spent 5 weeks fapping every day I spent 5 weeks not fapping at all. My life: Gym, go to work, go to town and shop, walk the streets, nightclub once in a while.

Age 16 - Not easy, but it has been worth it 100%

I have seen benefits, mostly that I'm more confident. I feel better overall. Not the "I'm on top of the world!" feeling, more of the "today is a good day" sort of thing :) I'm sixteen, so I've still got a long way to go.

Age 32 - I have this feeling that new experiences are possible

More self respect. Motivation to work out regularly. More at ease socially....and I'm not going back. I still MO too much, but for me that is more of a "discipline" issue, and not so much a moral one. Quitting that poisonous trifecta of P-M-O though has meant a lot.

What should sex educators tell kids about porn use? (video by zpoil3dbr4t))

Brilliant video by a young Norwegian about what sex educators really need to tell young porn users. Could use a bit of editing, however.

Age 20 - Restored confidence and self-respect, and lots of sex

I started this journey with an aim to help rediscover myself and my own self love, I wanted to get over my breakup and start to really enjoy life once more. In the last 30 days I've experienced both highs and lows. However, the highs have definitely out weighed the lows and I feel so much happier and more confident than I have done in months, even when I was in my relationship.

Age 19 - PIED issues appear to be vanishing. I am more attracted to my girlfriend now than I have ever been

I am 19 years old. After being single for 1.5 years, I began a relationship with a wonderful girl about 3 months ago. It's all going great and then we try to hook up. I discovered I have terrible ED and couldn't even come close to PIV sex. I discovered YBOP, read about resetting, and immediately quit watching P and MOing. I started a 30 day streak of nofap and was in a flatline from day one.
