Well I still have a little bit to go. But I finally have my erections back. This was the whole reason I started NoFap it was the first sign I had a problem. I had weak erections at about 70%. I can get them nearly 100% now. The only issue I am still dealing with is I have to use physical touch to get that last 10% of my erections but they seem to stay once I get them up.
I started my first ever 90 day challenge 183 days ago with the goal to see are there really any benefits and what sort of impact it would have on my everyday life. I've got to say it was an interesting 90 days.
I finally got accepted into college. I got the grades I needed and couldn't be happier. The only thing that held me together during my exam period was NoFap. I was not as strong as now, keeping few day streaks going, but it got me calm and collective enough to toughen up and answer as much as I could.
LINK TO SHOW. Alexander Rhodes stumbled on internet pornography accidentally at the age of 11. His initial curiosity soon became compulsion, and from there, addiction. Over the next decade, his addiction to internet porn affected every aspect of his life — from relationships, to academics, to health. In 2011, the year he describes as "hitting bottom," he found others online suffering from similar addictions. Rhodes eventually founded a support website, now visited by 1 million visitors a month, and he left his Google job to manage the site full time.
Rhodes talks with Here & Now's Robin Young about internet pornography addiction.
I had severe PIED. I masturbated to porn nearly every day of my life from the age of 14 until mid-February 2016. Between the ages of 21-24, I failed to achieve an erection hard enough to penetrate my four first attempts at sex, each with a different girl, either for sex or oral sex. Each time, I told my partner it was because I had been drinking heavy the night before, which was a complete lie to hide my shame.

I thought I should share my perilous journey with you guys. Though my post is going to be long and boring but I'm sure that might encourage nofap aspirants and those who have been already struggling. Since all these symptoms, withdraw and recovery vary from person to person. So this post is just a motivation and an experience. Don't take it as bible.
One troubling reason why millennials are less sexually active than their parents is the warped behaviour they learn from the internet. Now there's a group trying to ‘reboot’ their mindsets
“Volakov”, as he’s known on the forum – and he doesn’t want any other clues given out – is an 18-year-old with a problem. He can’t get an erection with the girlfriend he loves. His issue isn’t physical. Neither is it a typical psychological problem such as performance anxiety. The reason Volakov is impotent, he believes, is internet porn.
