Just thought i’d share my recent experiences with you seeing as you’re all kind enough to share yours with me. I am a 23 year old male, and i’ve been attempting NoFap for nearly 9 months now, but have never exceeded the one month mark.
I always had long streaks of two-three week streaks but yet somehow I always fell back into edging and, well, you know the rest. I’ve been a long time sufferer of PIED, never being able to generate an erection without porn – and even with it, it wasnt even close to being the best ones.
This obviously affected my sex life, as I am in University and am pretty good at getting girls, so I found this incredibly frustrating. As of late, I am currently on a 2 week streak, but what has helped me notice that my erections are becoming stronger is that I have been attempting sex with this girl multiple times and staying away from porn.
The first time was tough – she had to help me out a bit, but each time I have sex with her it is getting better and better. I always used to “fear” having sex because I was ashamed of the embarrassment of not being able to get it up.
Upon realization of this, I noticed that personally for me, the problem must be porn. I strongly believe that the true answer is to stay away from it at all costs.
I am still recovering, I am in no way shape or form back to where I used to be, but I believe now that there is light at the end of this tunnel and it can be for you guys too. It may seem scary now, but judging by all the stories that are similar to ours, people have come out on top of this. Thats the mindset I’m adopting right now.
