I've been struggling with depression and mental health issues for the past 3-4 years.. With this eye opening experience of giving up my horrible masturbation habits.. I feel more and more that my pornography addiction was the reason I was struggling with these issues. They all have seemingly vanished and I'm feeling so much better about life..
Woke up with the first proper morning wood since age 11. The past few weeks I don't have any issue with eye contact, I feel charged up, confident. My memory has also improved I can think more coherently. Best thing of all I don't get pimples any more.
I'm here to share my experience with you because I'm nearly totally cured and i think my experienced can help you too. Today I'm 23, I'm French, I started masturbation to high speed internet porn at 12. My first experience with a girl was at 19. Conclusion = no erection at all. It was like the thing I've always dreamt of was finally not really good as porn.
Just wanted to come back here and write something someone might find encouraging since I was in this same boat. To start off I wanna make it clear that I was suffering from heavy ED last year, I experienced everything from anxiety attacks, shrinkage, semen leakage.
Last September I broke up with the girl I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with after finding out she was cheating on me. I was with her for just over four years, she was my first love. Can't say I PMO'd loads during the relationship, maybe 2/3 times a week or so, but was used to regular sex with her, maybe 3/4 times a week.
First time seeing that awesome blue star "90days" and gues what? it feels awesome! It's a must-do for every respected man :D. Benefits? Being more active socially, able to maintain eye contact, more overall speaking, less anxiety, more active at work and at the gym :) and I've started reading.
I'm a 20 year old male and this is my first time beeing at 45 days without PMO. My previous streak was at 33 I have been feeling a slight tingle and urge combined with my brain trying to trick me into PMO'ing the last couple of days.
It was a year ago around this time when I had ceased watching porn and masturbating. It wasn't my initial intention, but after watching very informative videos and doing research I decided to commit! I knew about NoFap but didn't really pay attention to it until after I had stopped.
Just decided my life needed some serious change and thought this would be a great way to start. Today marks day 63! One quick story about how far I've come. I'm very aware of the people around me, and I used to care a lot about what people were potentially thinking about me.
I'm happy to say that I'm really feeling now that I'm getting back to normal from a battle with PIED which has lasted for about two years. This has been an incredibly tough road. If you stick with it you will get better, I'm writing this to help anyone else out there who may be in the middle of what I was going through.
So I have been lurking on NoFap for about a year and after 80 days of not masturbating I have decided to make a post about the positive things that happened to me while on NoFap. The increase of confidence is just crazy. It's the only thing I can be 100% sure has been made possible by NoFap.
These are all things I've experienced for the better while abstaining from masturbation and porn. After experiencing these results with more to come I honestly think nofap could cure cancer, or prevent it. Nofap definitely appears to be the 'normal' state a human should be in.
