Age 27 - Brain fog GONE. Social anxiety decreased. Greater frequency of morning erections.

Considering a majority of the first 30 days was a flatline for me it was relatively easy. The real challenge comes when your urges and sexual function return and you have to resist the temptations. I'm not going to lie it hasn't been an easy route since the urges have returned.

Age 21 - Suicidal thoughts gone. Nofap was the best decision of my life

It's almost 2 months and i am still going solid. I can definitely say that Nofap was the best decision of my life. And i want to talk about the benefits that i got. I love dancing with girls. I am a Latin dancer. When i am dancing with a girl, i would like to see her smile and see her enjoying the moment. Before Nofap, PMO was affecting my dance. PMO was reducing my energy and created a little bit social anxiety.

Age 33 - I see beautiful women as human beings and don't lech over them. I started a successful company, make more money. Many other benefits.

This forum was critical to my success in beating my porn addiction. I now consider myself truly rebooted. I wanted to explain how I got here because some aspects of my journey were different to what I had read on here, and other aspects were similar. Of course, everyone is different, and I'm not suggesting other people adopt my methods, but... hopefully I can at least be another data point as you all continue your PMO-free journeys.

Need for instant gratification fading

The less you fap, the less you need instant gratification. I’ve been on nofap for a while and I’ve noticed that before nofap my idea of fun was binge watching a television series and eating a pint of ice cream. Today I tried doing just that. I had one spoon of the ice cream and felt like it was enough, I watched 20 mins and felt like that was enough.

Debunking "Why Are We Still So Worried About Wat­­ching Porn?" (by Marty Klein, Taylor Kohut, and Nicole Prause)

Introduction

This critique has two parts: Part 1 exposes how Nicole Prause, Marty Klein and Taylor Kohut completely misrepresent their solitary bit of “evidence” to support the article’s core falsehood – that “compulsive pornography viewing” was excluded from the new ICD-11 "Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder" diagnosis. Part 2 exposes the startling omissions, false claims, research misrepresentations, and cherry-picked data littering the Prause/Klein/Kohut article. (Note: Most of the article's cherry-picked data and misrepresentations are recycled from this 2016 Prause "Letter to the editor" that YBOP thoroughly dismantled 2 years ago: Critique of: Letter to the editor “Prause et al. (2015) the latest falsification of addiction predictions", 2016.)

Multiple 1+ month NoFap experiment results - I am 100% convinced now that NOFAP is 100% life changing

After many 30+ days of NoFap experiments and my last 40 day record breaking NoFap challenge i think i am ready to present my results and go over NOFAP benefits, what happens when i fail and few negatives about NoFap (yes there are few negatives). Why did I do multiple testing you may be wondering? I wanted to ensure that it is not a placebo and I am 100% convinced now that NOFAP is 100% life changing. Please remember i have noticed this exact same pattern every time i have went on long stretches of NoFap and then broke it.

Age 19 - Just hit 90 days. porn-induced ED gone. My journey.

Hey guys!!!!!! I've finally hit the 90 day mark I feel inspired to tell you guys my whole journey so this is going to be a long post. First of all let me tell y'all that I'm 19 yrs old. I first watched porn when I was 11 years old without really knowing what was going on. I kinda liked it so I continued watching, I was curious about it. However, a week later my parents talked to me and told me they knew I had been watching porn.

Suicidal ideation is almost completely gone: This took me by huge surprise. Many more benefits.

Wow, I can almost not put in to words what these past weeks of no PMO has contributed with. This feels unreal and reached far beyond my expectations, and that's only within 30 days! If you wanna read my background story, check out my introduction post! I have divided up this into a three parts: Initiation, benefits and final thoughts. Hope you enjoy this read!

My female dance partners feel the high energy inside me

it's almost 2 months and i am still going solid. I can definitely say that Nofap was the best decision of my life. And i want to talk about the benefits that i got. I love dancing with girls. I am a Latin dancer. When i am dancing with a girl, i would like to see her smile and see her enjoying the moment. Before Nofap, PMO was affecting my dance. PMO was reducing my energy and created a little bit social anxiety. That's why sometimes girls felt uncomfortable when they were dancing with me.

Age 21 - A decision that, and I'm not even exaggerating, changed my life. For the better.

Frankly, I never thought I'd see this day. 90 days no PMO. 90 days since my last relapse. It's been months since I took the decision to stop fapping my life away. A decision that, and I'm not even exaggerating, changed my life. For the better.  I'm 20 kilos(44lbs) lighter than I was. My wardrobe has never been so cool. My hair, oh god, I used to hate it and keep it short. I love it now. I stopped eating like a monster and eat more like a human.

Marriage at stake...so many relapses, finally progress

I’m not sure my story is worth note other than the possibility it may scare one of you readers into trying harder to beat this addiction. P has really been the largest negative aspect of my life. I’ve been a modest success in many other aspects but P addiction has threatened everything I value and have worked for. It has brought my marriage to the brink, cost me so many wasted hours, days, weeks, months, years.

From fetish porn and loneliness to relationship with long-time crush

After being a lurker for the longest time, I finally decided to make an account and post here, to give back to this helpful and supportive community. This will be a long post, detailing my journey, starting from the why, then narrating the hardships I faced and the ways I found to overcome them, followed by what changes I felt afterwards.

Sexual function improving; smashed an interview for Masters program

I had this interview today for the masters degree in a very popular college here in my country. I felt a little bit anxious before like 15 minutes before the start. Just all the thoughts were running through my mind I was like going crazy I was thinking 10 things at the same time. But I stopped thinking for a moment closed my eyes and started breathing like meditating. Guys it helped a lot I meditated for like until they call out my name.

Gay - PIED & DE completely gone

TL;DR at the bottom! This is kinda long and involves my whole experience pre- and post-porn, so here goes. I've marked this NSFW as there are some specific references to sex and masturbation, although I've tried to avoid being very graphic:

Hey everyone! I just came across this sub when doing some research and thought I'd share my experience and also hopefully get some feedback on a few issues I've been having here and there

"Cured" and then relapsed. Now, my skin is glowing. Energy much improved. Getting asked out a lot lately.

So last year, around the same time, I got to 90 days and honestly thought to myself: "I'm cured! Time to have sex". Well, not only did I pursue hookup apps, I began watching porn again and fell back right into my old habits. This time I see Nofap as more of a lifestyle practice and, while I may still count days, I'm not as attached to them when I know I've made a life-long change.
