Age 39 - Decreased social anxiety. Increased confidence, energy, determination. Better concentration & memory. Far calmer & more centered.

[This] is purely my personal view and not meant to offend anyone. Porn is not real, certainly it does not reflect how we live and have sex. It’s just a faked pretended fantasy that keeps many of us addicted and slaves by watching at the same time treating and abusing or taking advantage of the girls who actually do these scenes. In short the viewers get addicted and they get lost in their life and the actually actors get lost in their life as well. So how did it all go wrong?

Age 20 - Defeated social anxiety, I've become a quick thinker

I'm 20 years old and when I was no longer able to sleep without watching porn for 2 hour and jack off before bed was when I realized I HAD an addiction. Benefits:

Age 21 - Better erections, More energetic, Relate better with people, I can set clear goal and focus on them

I can attest to a lot of changes. I now have a better erection, very strong and feel so energetic. I relate better with people and I can set clear goal and focus on them, well I could do that before but its way more easier now. I really feel like having sex though but babe is like 196km away. I don't know what to do, I really don't want to cheat on her and I also don't want to patronize a prostitute.

Age 19 - My PIED is gone. I cannot be happier with my life.

I want to thank each and every one of you. I feel like I owe you all so much for helping me lift this heavy weight off of my life which has been PIED. I have done 30 days hard mode, and I cannot be happier with my life. My mind feels like it is back to the way it was before I started watching porn. I can now see the beauty in women again.

Age 41 - Memory dramatically improved, Better stress management, More "alpha"

41 years old, started Nofap around 2 years and a half ago. Reached a couple of 90 days streaks and two 5 months streaks before this one. Benefits? So far I can tell you:

  • more laid back and able to manage stress
  • memory dramatically improved

Age 23 - I've never felt this capable of being happy

This has been a harrowing journey guys, as I have a girlfriend and was a 4 time/day PMOer from age 13 till now (I'm 23). I've never felt this capable of being happy. During my tenure as a rampant PMO-er I felt hopeless to the point of not realizing that any other feeling was possible. For the first time since puberty I don't feel like that.

Age 18 - Why I don't fap anymore

Do you guys ever feel like fapping is just something you do? Something you'll never beable to stop? I did once, but I sure as F wasn't about to let it control me like that. I started fapping in November of 2011. Wish I never did. The things I thought off, yuck!

Greater energy, Insomnia seems cured, I can definitely say nofap helped me focus and complete my degree, Better at video games

I recently hit 90 days hardmode on Jan 1 and have been on nofap on and off for about a year and a half. My longest streak before was about 80 days. Some benefits I noticed:

  • Insomnia - I used to have alot of trouble falling asleep and would take doses of melatonin in order to do so. I no longer need any melatonin and sleep much better.

Age 27 - More self-confidence, I feel more urge to be social, I rediscovered my long lost passion in my hobby (guitar), I can concentrate better

I've officially entered my first 3 digits for the first time in 10 years since I got addicted to PMO. How is it so far? One word... awesome! I am 27 years old. I've been addicted to porn since 17. I first started trying NoFap 1 or 2 years ago. I felt that my life was stuck in many dimensions and I was wondering if this PMO addiction is the thing that was holding me back.

Age 27 - Severe PIED and DE: Today marks an official success story of my reboot and rewiring process

Today marks an official success story of my reboot and rewiring process: For the first time in my life, I am able to achieve/ maintain an erection and orgasm to vaginal sex WITH a condom on. This has been one, if not THE ONE, reason why I'm trying to quit pornography. Eight years ago I suffered from what many of us have experienced: severe PIDE and PIED.

Age 43 - 1 year update: A year ago my wife had had enough and threatened to move out and take our children

Today is my one year anniversary of being PMO free. I am 43 years old and have been addicted since I was a teenager. I had tried many times to get better but always found it too difficult to quit. I never understood why I failed despite trying so many different things. My wife knew I was watching porn but didn't know how bad it was because I shut her out. I had been shutting her out our entire 17 year marriage. A year ago my wife had had enough and threatened to move out and take our children and tell others why if I didn't change. That was my rock-bottom moment. That was also the night I quit cold-turkey.

Age 17 - A lot less flashbacks and few urges

It's so worth it! I remember when I could of gotten 90 days by today, but I failed to push myself. However, I stepped up my game and decided that nofap was a worthwhile decision. So here I  am. I feel more confident, have a girlfriend now, and feel like a new person. I have so much more growing to do though. Here's to a new year of no PMO! Let's do this!

Age 20 - Happier than I've been in 6+ years

I am an energy ball and I feel good about myself. And you know what, I can't recall any other day like this when I smiled whole day and actually felt happy in past 6-7 years. I used to be highly spiritual as a kid,from age 5 to 12,b ut then I started PMO. I am 20.
