I was fapping at least two times per since I was 12 and as the years went by regular porn was not enough anymore (I don’t want to put triggers, all of us know how it is). Deep down I knew that I have a problem but it seemed impossible to stop. In past three years I tried to stop but best I managed was 20 days. I should also mention that my experience with women and social skills in general are nothing special. I had a girlfriend 2 years and some occasional sex if I get "lucky," but never truly made emotional connection with any of them.
Hi everyone, I'm taking a break from my studies to write this post. I've been on NoFap since January 2016, so I figure it's my turn to document my journey. Before I dive into this, I would like to thank everyone on this subreddit; without your help and support day after day, I would be in an extremely lonely, depressed state. I grew so much as a man, and I hope that I am able to repay that through helping someone out there through this post.
I remember being in my room playing RuneScape 10 hours a day and watching porn. I used to go to school fapped out my eyes were twitching and my hair was bad. I remember feeling like a tweaker and being a chronic fapper 1-5 times a day. I was afraid of talking to people I would hate waking up and people were looking at me at school.
Now socializing makes me happy. I go to college now and I walk up to any person boy/girl and yes even the "Hot women" or what men would call "10's".
Ok guys I just wanted to tell you the same old super powers: got up crack ass of dawn, ran 4 miles and I am on vacation! Also noticed my voice is seems to have deepened even more this round. it’s been about a week since I have had sex with the wifey. We don’t have period sex at the end of each month so this is my peak time of my natural testosterone boost.
[I saw a big] Difference going to party after i PMO'ed and after 110+ days in new lifestyle. I must say i just overjoyed myself. I didn't care what others are thinking (as usually i do, if PMO'ed you feel fragile, unsecure). Felt so freaking free. My movements were free and natural.
I was somehow good at doing this nofap thing (I was so convinced about the effects of PMO that I rarely ran out of motivation) as I was able to go for 40 days on my first try, then 40 again, and then I relapsed for a while but soon I said 'Enough' and I meant it. So now I have been exactly 250 days of no porn with one MO at day 236.
September 2 was the last time I masturbated. Though only 41 days in, holy shit do the benefits come. I didn't think they would but believe me please...they do. I masturbated compulsively since I was 13. I am 19 now.
I'm 23 and I’ve been a passionate fapper for...9 years? At the moment I'm 60 days clean of Porn and Masturbation. Sometimes it was easy, sometimes it was harder. I never thought porn and masturbation made me suffer. No, I thought every man needs it to function, when not having real sex. Oh yeah, stupid society. And I was part of it.
This is amazing. I´ve never felt like this in years. I know most will say it´s because I am horny from not PMOing in 47 days. YEAH! I am 47 days without touching the guy down there, but that´s not the case. I don´t feel horny at all. What I mean to say that today I felt something different. Was looking at girls passing on the street and I noticed that I love women.
I did it, I reached day 90 of a PMO-free challenge. Considering my fapping history (25+ years on every medium you can imagine, in 30 countries, in every situation, even in public) it's a nice feat and I want to take a moment to acknowledge that feeling of pride.
Let me start off by saying that I've been masturbating to porn for 8 years. Either it was once a day, twice a day, or more. I was one of those people that escalated to more and more extreme things. I've masturbated to gay things within the last few years, and it was only until two months ago my mind asked itself, "Am I gay?" This caused a lot of anxiety and OCD to happen. I still have this, but not to the degree I used to have it.
