Age 31 - Been on and off hard drugs for about thirteen years. Finally made it to 90 days no PMO.

About ten months ago I made the decision to pursue the NoFap challenge on Hard Mode for three months (or 90 days, for a nice round number) and now I fulfill this goal, having struggled for years to combat PMO.

Learning a lot about self-control

When my girlfriend first found out about my addiction 3 years ago (it had been going for about 10 years), she told me that we could only get married if I could give up porn and masturbation for a year. I'd try to stop, but I constantly failed. However, last January (beginning of my senior year in college), a few things changed:

Age 21 - ED: Success after 2 long years. Not yet 100%, but sex finally felt great

Finally after almost two damn years I was able to have sex. I started no pmo at 19 and I'm now 21. I started out this journey as a virgin also. The first time I was actually able to penetrate a vagina was back in May with the help of ED meds. The entire experience was horrible but I had lost my virgintiy. Didn't feel anything during sex and never came and barely had an erection on a large dose of meds.

100 days: Look much younger, Increased Energy & Focus, More manly & assertive, Much more caring - especially to wife, Man boobs gone

101 days NoFap 100 day no porn - Good things from NoFap

  1. Man boobs gone
  2. I look much younger than I am. A few people said you can’t be our age or they say you’re not old enough to have 18 yr old.
  3. Lots of quality time holding hands with my wife and working out at the gym

Being porn free helped me overcome my weight gain fetish. Depression & anxiety also alleviated.

[MUST WATCH BRILLIANT SHORT VIDEO] In the past I had a pretty compulsive weight gain fetish. Weight gain porn (especially furry weight gain porn) was the only kind of porn I ever masturbated too. But after a year of being porn free I stopped fantasizing about anthopomorphic foxes that gained 500 pounds.

Age 16 - The best thing is vastly improved human interaction - people ENJOY my presence

Well... I did it :) 120 days of no porn, masturbation, or sex. And trust me - I don't plan on doing it anytime soon (Masturbating that is). First off: Damn! The first few weeks were hard, but after that it is just keeping your mind and body under control, and knowing how to handle urges. As you have probably heard before - the pro's far outweigh the con's.

Age 28 - Life was shit. Emotionally I was very tense. Dropped a cute gf. Was getting borderline weird: Finally I'm happy! +2 months porn free.

Before I discovered nofap and pornfree was banging it multiple times at day, was really tired. Sometime MO multiple times in the day, then sex, and then still not happy another MO... I had to watch porn as soon I had some free time or felt slightly bored. And clearly I masturbated to it every time. I'm in my late 20's. Life was shit. Emotionally I was very tense. Dropped a cute gf. Was getting borderline weird.

Age 22 - This is the best tool for self-improvement I've come across

Today marks 185 days no PMO. There is so much I can report on, but I'd like to be as concise as possible (however I have a habit of rambling). The main reason why I would like to write a report is to give my perspective on NoFap which may in turn motivate others, and document how I feel in case I ever want to relapse.

2 years - Much less social anxiety, More energy and motivation, Healthier hair & skin Deeper voice, I just feel happy

I have been actively facing no PMO for about 2 years. During those 2 years I have had major ups, major downs, and everything in-between. Going from a multiple-year habit to stopping cold turkey is not an easy task, at all. Even to this date I still have slip ups, but I am happy to say that during my time with this community that the slip ups happen WAY less, and it is only a matter of time before I am able to finally feel 100% rebooted.

Age 27 - After 10 years, I have a girlfriend, lost weight, got a new job

I got a wonderful girlfriend and we've been together for 6 months. It may not sound like much but I've only had 1 girlfriend and I was 17, I'm 27 now. So if you're trying to change by not fapping and improving your life just so you can get a girlfriend, STOP. Do it for yourself.

90 day report of a "Once upon a time shy guy"

Guys, I would highly encourage you to NOT give up on nofap! There's so much to learn and grow when you embark on this journey. :) During my 90 day journey, I used to constantly feel “what's the use of nofap”, because I wasn't seeing any noticeable changes when I started out. But now on hindsight, when I compare me to my previous 90-day self, there's been a significant change!

Age 24 - Just asked a girl out

Yeah man so i'm tall, decent looking, and take care of my body but my social and sexual ability are both extremely stunted due to severe porn/substance abuse from 15 until now (24)... I quite drinking, smoking, video games, junk food, and went vegan on january of this year. I also "quit" pmo but we all know how that goes... Finally i got a streak that stuck.

Age 29 - I started this path to cure my PIED and get my libido up but got a lot more through it all.

I am surprised that I made it this far. This being my first time and all. I started this path to cure my PIED and get my libido up but got a lot more through it all.

The Dual Control Model - The Role Of Sexual Inhibition & Excitation In Sexual Arousal And Behavior (2007)

COMMENTS: A recent re-discovery. The first paper to report porn-induced ED and porn-induced low libido. In an experiment employing video porn, 50% of the young men couldn't become aroused or achieve erections with porn (average age was 29). The shocked researchers discovered that the men's erectile dysfunction was "related to high levels of exposure to and experience with sexually explicit materials." The limp men had spent a whole of lot of time in bars and bathhouses where porn was "omnipresent," and continuously playing. The men explained that "high exposure to erotica seemed to have resulted in a lower responsivity to "vanilla sex" erotica and an increased need for novelty and variation.
