My story: Divorced with my wife. Had stress like....a lot. Met new Girl Friend was nervous, and noticed some problems.

Also standing up erections goes away fast.

Age 20 – Father and Son Porn Recoveries

Today is my first year sober, and I have turned off my timer a month ago. My dad (2 and half years sober - his is a porn addiction as well) a few weeks ago told me that there comes a time where you have to move on from the number. You have to own it, and can't let the number own you. A year seperated and I have found the hardest thing for being at peace with myself and not allowing the anxieties of my natural attractions and daily life to overtake and dominate my mind and body.

Age 28 - PIED cured: It’s important to get a partner after an initial recovery period.

I am new to this forum, and Ill like to share my experiences and successes with recovering from PIED. I am 28 years old.

Development of my PIED: I PMOed sporadically when I was 15-18 years old, since I was living with my parents. From 18-26, I lived alone and had my own internet connection, so I was able to PMO practically every day and sometimes several times a day. At 20, I had a girlfriend and no problems with ED despite PMOing, but we broke up after several months. At 23, I unsuccessfully tried to have sex, so by then I know definitely that my ED had fully developed.

Age 20 - Increased: Clarity of thought, Ability to focus. Enjoyment of everything, Confidence, Communication with girlfriend

  • Increased clarity of thought
  • Increased ability to focus on work for long periods of time
  • Increased enjoyment of everything even things that used to seem boring
  • Increased confidence/decreased care of what others think
  • Increased self control
  • Increased communication with girlfriend/strengthened relationship

Age 19 - Porn-induced ED cured: Now I just need to find one girl I want to settle down with

I blew it in a couple of seconds. Funny. I started this challenge out to cure my PIED because not only was I semi erect, I could last for 20-30 minutes and struggle to come. Now it took three seconds. Embarrassing, sure, but man am I happy that I can both keep it up and orgasm from sex.

Eliminate Chronic Internet Pornography Use to Reveal Its Effects (2016)

Author/s: DOI: 10.15805/addicta.2016.3.0107 Year: 2016 Vol: 3 Number: 2




There’s growing evidence that today’s streaming pornography videos are sui generis, with unique properties such as inexhaustible sexual novelty at a swipe, effortless escalation to more extreme material, and accessibility by youthful viewers, and that these unique properties are giving rise to severe symptoms in some consumers.

Erections are back, more confidence, insight into problem internet use

Today is the day. It's funny, but for a while I never thought that I'd make it to 90 days. It feels surreal right now that I'm at the top of a mountain that seemed impossible to climb. At the time, it seemed like those who achieved 90 days were somehow higher quality people, the elite bunch who excelled at everything in life. I was, ostensibly, falling victim to a different kind of fantasy.

YBOP response to Jim Pfaus's "Trust a Scientist: Sex Addiction Is a Myth" (January, 2016)

How about trusting addiction neuroscientists and peer-reviewed papers?

Before I address many of the claims within the Pfaus article (link to the Pfaus article), it must be noted that Jim Pfaus omitted the 30 neuroscience-based studies on porn users published in the last few years. So far, the results of every "brain study" (MRI, fMRI, EEG, neuropsychological, neuro-hormonal) offer support for the concept of porn addiction. In addition to reporting the same fundamental brain changes as seen in substance addicts, a few studies also reported greater porn use is associated with erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, decreased libido, and reduced neural response to images of vanilla porn. The up-to-date list of current "brain studies" is here.

Age 19 - Sexual confidence back, NoFap definitely works.

I went 64 days without porn/sex and I remember how much more enthusiasm, motivation and courage I had. It was a really eye-opening time. I'm on the 11th day of NoFap now, tbh girls have always liked me but now i'm on NoFap it's crazy.

Age 15 - Lot more energy, Social anxiety is disappearing, More confidence, More aggressive, Clearer mind, Sexual energy is through the roof

So I've been doing NoFap for a while like 2 years and I am not gonna share my story because its losing your time. So my benefits so far:

  • A lot more energy in the gym
  • Social anxiety is disappearing
  • More confidence
  • Music sounds better
  • I feel comfortable in my own skin a little bit more
  • More aggressive

Age 48 - NoFap saved my marriage and my life

I’ll have to start near the end of this story as I don't want to bore everyone with the boring back-story so here are the salient points.

  • Feeling lonely
  • No one to turn to
  • Parents passed away
  • Sexless marriage
  • Retreated into porn
  • Been using porn since a teen, now 48
