sun over the mountainsMan! This is unbelievable.I signed up for the challenge on Feb. 24, 2014 and here I am 216 days later, still at it, haven't fapped even once. Not to sound arrogant but, I feel invincible right now. Over the past 7 months, I have changed a lot.

  • I have gone from a mediocre student to the top of my class at college.
  • My confidence level is over 9000!

ED, anxiety & loss of libido. Now: Sex is great and I am super-confident with women

Brazilian girlIt's been 5 months now since I have watched any porn. I am getting very healthy erections even just from kissing women and it's great. I regularly chat up women on the street (daygame) and have become a lot more confident with the opposite sex.

Age 18 - More sensitivity down there, better orgasms, and I changed my life.

speedboatToday I relapsed and I got urge to share my knowledge and experience with NoFap, because it all started thanks to you. This is going to be short resume so don't worry.

Age 26 - increased self-esteem, confidence, motivation, sharper mind, random boners

motivation"Started from the bottom now i'm here." I started nofap at one of the darkest places of my life. After leaving a three year relationship with a girl I loved but grew apart from, i spiraled into a PMO vortex of self pity and loathing.

Age 37 - 1 year: confidence, memory, ability to communicate, anxiety, fitness and overall well being have all improved!

flirtingSo I've been doing NOFAP for over a year now with streaks ranging form a week to 79 days and in that time I have taken on a journey to become the best version of myself! I must add that when I do fap I never use porn or any visual stimulation.

Age 19 - ED: Quick recovery. I can feel my lust slowly returning after 4 years of absence, and it's wonderful.

feet in bedI've been a member of our cult for about 15 days now, and even though I've relapsed a few times, the benefits are incredible. I'm only on Day 5 now, but things have been getting so much better. Fapping myself to sleep every night for the past 4 years destroyed my sex drive, leaving me with ED at age 19.

Age 16 - I've learned more about my body and where my energy comes from

lotus - blessingsJust completed my 90 days and I would love to share my story with you guys and what I have learned. When I first realized the true powers of nofap was in june about a week in. I would have football in the mornings over the summer.

1 year - more creative, energetic & happy, less shyness, relationships improved

happy guyI just noticed it has been more than one year since I discovered /r/NoFap. So I decided to write something about my journey.

London Times feature by Gary Wilson - "A cure for porn addicts who have lost that loving feeling"

Sunday Times logoYoung men are finding that addiction to hardcore videos is harming their physical ability to have real sex. Gary Wilson explains how science and online discussion groups are helping them to quit

In 2007, something strange happened on the internet. I know, something strange is always happening on the internet. But this wasn’t a viral sensation that came and went in a few weeks. Hundreds and then thousands of people, mostly male, mostly young, started questioning the effects of online pornography. On websites for body-builders, ‘pick-up artists’, medical-advice seekers, car enthusiasts, even guitarists – wherever men gathered online – conversations turned to porn and what it was doing to them.

Age 29 - cured after 5 years of PIED

condom on bananaIt's not a success story yet, but it s a hell of a success for me so I wish to share it with you. Here's a quick background:

Age 59 - Breakthrough: Fantasies will fade away and die as long as you don't continue "feeding" them!

Brain begins dreaming the ultimate sexual fantasy & wakes you up before it gets goodOne of my main triggers after giving up porn has been these damn fantasies, some of them would last just a few seconds, but others when my brain is "idle", like when trying to fall asleep, and often involved long detailed fantasies.

Age 24 - ED cured: confidence is higher, sex is much more 'clear', my gf satisfies me

dating a modelSo, I have been able to sleep with my gf WITH a condom two times over the past two weeks having no ED. - I've had really bad ED for years now & of course watched porn for years.

Age 50 - ED cured, the role of non-sexual bonding techniques

playful coupleI just wrote this advice into my own journal , but felt it might be worth sharing as a success story and advice too. This advice is really only suitable for married guys or guys in relationships with a SO.

PIED & DE are gone. No desire for weird fetishes. More energy & confidence, less social anxiety.

Libido ergo sumFor a period of about a couple of years I fapped myself into asexuality - I was only really interested in fapping because I was bored and lonely. I had weird fetishes, a crush on a cam girl (mature foreign lady), PIED, DE and little interest in real human girls.

Age 26 - Although not perfect with PMO - my ED is fixed

'Ephemeral imperfect' signI've always had erectile problems starting out with new girlfriends. A few months ago I achieved my longest NoFap streak of 41 days. Since then it's been bumpy.
