Age 38 - This has been the best thing I've ever done for my relationship. And I'm seeing so many personal benefits.

Wow, yesterday was day 100 without looking at porn!!! TBH I did briefly look at P subs a few times and had some fantasy, but I'm calling this a huge victory for me! 100 days without porn!!! I'm feeling like I've really turned a corner in my thinking, and while I don't feel completely free from the dangers of PMO, I do feel that I'm in a much better place than I've ever been. FU Porn. I win. You Woah!!!

When I'm sober, I feel amazing. Our relationship gets better, sex life gets better, writing gets better.

My wife has known about my porn addiction for years, but during periods of relapse it always seems to fade from our collective awareness, which of course feeds the relapse. My most recent awakening came as a result of me confessing that I had gone back to porn yet again. I've confessed before, and I've had the difficult conversations so many times. Even so, I kept going back to this awful habit.

Age 18 - Using time productively, taking care of myself, treating women like people

I have been a porn addict for the last 5 years or so. But I started to put an end to this when I saw NoFap while scurrying through the reddit frontpage. Now,I have been pretty successfull in curbing my addiction. Here is what I felt in the last 1 year or so.

Age 23 - PIED healing after 9 months and repeated sex

Just thought i'd share my recent experiences with you seeing as you're all kind enough to share yours with me. I am a 23 year old male, and i've been attempting NoFap for nearly 9 months now, but have never exceeded the one month mark.

Age 25 - Doing NoFap has taught me that my attitude towards sex and women has been really, really fucked up for some time

I thought I would write down what I have learned about myself – and specifically about how my brain has developed its conceptions about sex and sexuality – through my experiences of NoFap. This isn’t supposed to be in any way scientific, just some observations and what I think I have discovered through this process.

Age 33 - Erections recovering after 100+ days

Been 109 days today only really started seeing improvement around day 93 I went a few days with morning wood every day which is unusual. In all
this time I had not tested my erection but yesterday in the shower I started thinking about a girl I find attractive and my erection was so hard it was almost going straight  up. As I tested in the morning I thought I would try at night and the same thing,rock hard.

I feel really calm and free. I noticed how the anxiety depression is going away.

I have been away from porn and masturbation for quite a while now. It’s been 8 months and 25 days since I masturbated or watched porn. I feel really calm and free. I noticed how the anxiety just starts to vanish. literally I’m now able to talk and get along with beautiful girls with no anxiety (something I was for sure not able to do, was really far from being able to engage in such nice relations with girls and even have a good time).

Age 18 - ED & DE cured: The benefits and changes I have experienced in just this short time really took me by surprise

Lately, my life has been a complete turn around from what it was a little over a month ago. It took me lying to my girlfriend for months and her finding out about it to get me to finally grind out my longest streak ever (and still going strong!) Here's a little background: I am an 18y/o male and I am currently enrolled in a state university. I discovered P and MO at a relatively late age, 13 years old, and I quickly fell into its grasp.

Age 18 - Nofap and autism

I have Syndrome of Aspergers and I have been struggling with depression and self loathing since 2013. I have always been really self conscious about myself because I knew I 'wasn't normal'. Because of this, I compared myself with the 'normal' people and I was really sad every time I saw photos of my friends at parties because I wanted to be there aswell but couldn't.

Gary Wilson Talks About The Harmful Effects of Porn (Slickster)

Gary Wilson raised the question with his book Your Brain on Porn about the harmful effects of porn in the internet age. A former physiology teacher who stumbled upon this research and who donates all the profits of his book YBOP to charity. With Utah legislature attempting to pass legislation that will allow individuals to sue the adult industry for damages similar to the tobacco industry. The evidence is clear that porn can have some very harmful effects.

Age 20 - PIED cured after 6 months, girlfriend, more energy, deep voice

Excuse my english i'm a french man. I'm now in this no pmo shit for one year. I'm 20 and since i was 12 years old i watched porn and fapped to it once a week. I was a low testosterone weak guy with a baby face. i decided that i must do sth and i searched all the things that could rescue me from the situation.

Age 23 - I'm composing pieces every other day

I'm a composer and found myself struggling constantly just to write one track. Now, I'm composing multiple pieces every other day. Currently got multiple tracks running through my head and my multi-tasking has improved tremendously. So glad I discovered this.

Age 22 - PIED was 100% cured, now I have it again

Was 100% cured I think, and I wasn't worrying about it at all anymore for the past few months. But went on like a three-day [porn] binge this weekend and now I have it again just like the (bad) old days. With it, I just want to isolate myself because I don't want to socialize when I don't feel like myself. I realize I'm more than my D but it's impossible to ignore how pathetic and emasculated I feel.
