Around 3 months back, I made the decision to finally quit porn. It had been an integral part of my life from when I was 13 years old (I am 26 now). I realized that I have a problem when even after having sex with many beautiful women, I would still need to fap to get an orgasm after the act. I also used to be semi-hard with real women and super hard when fapping to porn.
Also I realized that I was getting nowhere in my life and desperately needed to change something.
Anyways, I found this subreddit and I would like to thank each and every one of you for posting your experiences here as it helps to know that we are all in this together.
I had sex 4 times in the last 90 days, and the last one (about a week back) was the best I have ever had. No premature ejaculation, and basically I was in total control of my erection the entire time and the orgasm (boy It felt out of this world). Note: My hardness is still lower than the time I used to fap to porn, so I still have a long way to go.
But besides the sexual benefit, NO FAP has changed my life. I no longer feel trapped, frustrated, my thoughts are clearer, and I know exactly what I want to achieve with my life in the short as well as the long term (While I used to fap, my life used to be like a log in the ocean, just floating anywhere and everywhere. Now It feels that I am a motorboat in the ocean heading anywhere I want to go)
Also I feel like a beast in the gym. I can lift more, I can run for longer periods of time, I learnt to climb, I am learning yoga, I started my mba from a highly ranked school. Confidence is out of the roof. And yeah sometimes I feel bored as hell too!!! I never felt bored in the last 13 years of my life as I used to fap when I felt like there was nothing to do (This happened a lot earlier in my no fap quest, happens very rarely now) In short I am never going back to porn, ever. I don’t even want to fap without porn. The few sexual encounters I had helped tremendously and the orgasms during the intercourse were heavenly. I would say any physical/emotional contact with real women may make the recovery faster.
Anyways good luck to all of you. It gets easier after day 30 (It did for me).
