Age 26 - Deeper voice, peace and serenity, more stamina, less brain fog

I made it guys and gals. Day 90 has arrived! Good things started happening when I stopped fapping. I've been on this journey for 2 years and failed many, many times. I knew what was coming and what I needed to do to get over those bumps. I failed too many times to want to feel that way again so it was part experience and Part determination to not return to my ways.

PIED and depression healed, I've manned up

PIED led me to find NoFap but I've gained back more than that. I've been lurking on NoFap since September, had a 45 day streak, relapsed multiple times and now I'm gunning for 90 again. But what I want to talk to you about is how NoFap enabled me to get real with myself, face my fears and embrace the truth in whatever form it came.

Age 20 - Wow! I suffered from porn-induced ED since I was a virgin and I finally had successful sex

I finally had successful sex today!!!!!!!! I couldn't tell you how great this feels man honestly. It's been such a long a road from anxiety attacks, sleepless nights mental breakdowns, suicidal thoughts, feeling worthless, and just feeling like a don't belong. So many failed attempts and painful moments. So many times of feeling demasculated and feeling like I can't be the man a woman needs cause my dick doesn't work. I would have the girl of my dreams naked in front of me and I would stay limp Noodle. Gorgeous face, gorgeous body, and personality out of this world.

Age 24 - Much more confident with strangers. It's almost as though I'm a kid again and every human being is an interesting character in some kind of larger story.

I never really thought of [my porn use] as an addiction or anything unnatural. But after trying to quit and relapsing over and over for the past two years i have realized that I was absolutely addicted and had almost no self control. Any time I would get even the slightest tingling in my genitals I would instantly go and get off to some nice porn. I always assumed that's what everyone else did. But ever since I got on this site and started learning about it I have made some serious progress. It took me forever but I finally now can counter this on the daily.

Age 20 - I thought I would be socially awkward forever

I haven't masturbated or watched pornography for about two months now. I have never experienced such a sudden and positive change in my entire life. Porn and jerking off is bad. It saps your energy. It makes you awkward, withdrawn, and unambitious. Since I quit, within 1 month I was dating a beautiful brunette from my work.

Age 24 - Morning wood back, PIED better

So it’s around 6/7 weeks of no porn and barely any masturbation. My morning erections are returning to almost 100% from none at all and I've been getting erections at night too. Last Saturday I managed to get an erection while playing around with my fiancée and got a blowjob.

Depression disappeared...and then I started using again

I engaged into NoFap in october. I have been trying since september but I just couldn't do it. Then I found this site and by reading about all of your stories I earned the determintation to do it. Stayed clean for around 80 days (didn't even count them). Superpowers and stuff: yeah it worked. The most amazing fact is how much my self-awareness improved: I could track every feeling and thought to the origin.

Age 27 - Married with DE and some ED: I never thought sex can be so blissful...

I am married for 1.5 years and I have a baby. I was a hard-fapper as long as I remember myself. When I was having sex with my wife who, by the way, is beautiful and super hot, also very caring and affectionate, I had to imagine lesbians or other girls to be able to ejaculate.

Age 21 - No longer have ED - I feel like a man again: Lot more confident, Don't stutter as much, Live in the moment, Appreciate the little things in life

Just wanted to share a little bit about my experience with NoFap after recently hitting the 90 day mark. I first discovered this subreddit a few years ago and have had a couple "streaks" of a week, two weeks, a month, hell I even make it 5 or 6 weeks at one point. But the problem was always the same: I was never committed.

Age 17 - The last 3 months have really opened my eyes on the matters of porn.

I (M17) joined NoFap 88 days ago, a few days before my 17th birthday. It wasn't because porn was ruining my life, or I spent long hours watching it. That was not the case. It wasn't even because I'm a Christian, while it was probably a factor, too. It was just to challenge myself. Because, you see, I have a massive ego.

Addicted to Porn: Compulsion, Shame, and Anxiety (The Fix)

There is no education on sex or porn in school so the porno films are serving as the educator. Then, guess what? Kids get into relationships and try to do what they see in porn, and it doesn’t work that way. Addicted to Porn: Chasing the Cardboard Butterfly is a new documentary by writer-director Justin Hunt and is narrated by Metallica’s James Hetfield.

My girlfriend came back once I fixed my shit

I really appreciate what this sub has done for me, but that was the old me. It has been almost a year now since I watched porn, I haven't fapped for that time either. I lost my girlfriend because of what I did and a year later we are rebuilding our relationship. I love her and we regularly have sex. PMO is such a freaking waste of your life.

Porn-induced ED cured. Relapsed & PIED returned. Cured it again

My PIED was on the milder side, but it has always been around. I could not perform when I lost my virginity at the age of 17. Later on I had occasional hiccups in that relationship, but with that girl the PIED went away naturally after that. NoFap wasn't a thing then, but I kept masturbation to a minimum.

Age 23 - Living proof that nofap can be the first step towards completely changing your life. 90 days ago I was suicidial, lonely, friendless.

I am living proof that nofap can be the first step towards completely changing your life. 90 days ago I was suicidial, lonely and friendless. No one had any respect for me and I was living a miserable life. I was always so tired even after getting 8-9 hours of sleep. Now I meditate every night before I go to bed at 11 and wake up at 6:15 and feel great.
