I did it. 90 days. Although I have wanted to write this for a while, I felt that I should keep with tradition and give the usual 90-day success story. Well like any other ordinary success story, I'll start off by how I was before NoFap. You've probably already imagined a stereotypical porn user/fapper who was awkward, soft-spoken, and shy.
My number one tip for no fap is: Open up and tell people in real life! Be vulnerable and open up about your problem to people you trust and let them know about this new challenge you're attempting. The main power of opening up is releasing the shame you have around porn & masturbating. It also gives you accountability.
I now give all my sexual energy to my woman. No more jerking off behind her back. I desire her like a man is supposed to. I also can finish every time because sensitivity has returned. Guys, I could only orgasm maybe 10% during sex before because of decreased sensitivity. And, yes, even with a condom I finish now.
The issue of whether porn addiction is real has produced a storm of controversy. Yet all this noise may be distracting us from a graver risk to healthy sexuality: sexual conditioning of adolescents. READ MORE
After the 90 days i started masturbating with my own imagination and i do this for about a year now. After i got rid of the porn addiction my orgasms became stronger, as much strong as i first started masturbating at 13 (no porn involved). At the peak of my porn addiction orgasms were so weak, it was almost unbelievable.
First of all, let me introduce myself in a few following sentences. I am coming to this great community of people who support each other from the Czech Republic. This small republic lies in the middle of Europe and not everyone knows where to find it. :) I am 17 years old Christian and this nofap challenge is probably going to be one of the most challenging ever.
27yo married male, struggled with PIED via PMO since teen years. Exposed to internet porn at a relatively young age; nothing special there, but over time I ran way with it to the point of routine...at least once a day, nearly everyday, sometimes 3-4 in a day over 15+ years.
Finally reached 90 days I joined nofap in April and it took me 6 months to reach my goal. I did hardmode because I don't have a girlfriend. Nofap has not changed me, I changed because I chose to. I chose to do to nofap and that was my first step towards self-improvement.
I am 25yrs old, I started PMO at age 8,went from magazines to tv to videos then highspeed internet porn, then pretty much became a social outcast and made my room into my cave and asylum, pretty much a loner, depressed all time, just went straight from school to work and home never really wanted to socialize or be out with people, playing videogames all time and being on internet not even socializing with my family.
I might as well start from the beginning. Since I had discovered orgasm at 11 years old I have been a chronic masturbater since that time. I would spend hours at a time in my room draining my balls until nothing was in them but air. I wasted teens and young adulthood with excessive fapping as well. I am 45 and back during that time, porn wasn't as easily accessible as it is today. I mostly used my imagination and at times we had to resort to Archie comics (can anybody remember Veronica in a bikini?),
22 /m from northern Norway. First off I want to thank this forum and all the amazing people contributing every day, you guys are truly great. This will be my first time posting because its time for me to give something back.
I've experienced more things in the last 90 days than the last 4 years combined. I started fapping in grade 10 and it quickly became an escape behaviour from my OCD and depression. I was soon hooked and no matter how many times I said this was gunna be my last time, it never was.
