I joined Reddit in about June 2012, this is a different account, I lurked here for a long time before I joined officially.
I discovered NoFap when it made its way into my main feed, through popular upvoting. I read it solely out of curiosity. I’d never heard anything about people quitting PMO before. It was like breathing to me, I’d never even considered for a moment once that I’d ever stop like I have. It was something I was always going to do, and enjoy.
I originally tried NoFap because many people seemed to think that stopping PMO had made a positive difference to their lives. Some claiming “superpowers”. But, I saw it for what it was, that people felt more than they did before. I wondered if it were actually true, and jumped on board.
So, the 90 day challenge, that’s got to be easy I thought to myself. It wasn’t, for me.
It’s taken me about 2 years and a couple of months thereabouts to make it to 90 days.
Before this streak, I very nearly packed in NoFap altogether. I was going to go back to my old ways.
I genuinely am pleased I didn’t.
I do not feel superhuman. But as of right now, having come out of the flatline not too long ago, I feel really good. I have plenty of energy, I feel positive about things.
Comparing how I was when I used to fap, to how I am now that I don’t.
It’s night and day.

Well, it’s my bed time soon. So I’m going to slumber.
Oh, and before I go, no I’m never going to PMO ever again. I have no wish or desire to return to that life. I look forward to having a loving relastionship with someone. No more porn. I’m done.
