Today is 30 days on NoFap. That’s a whole month. It is longer than I have ever gone on NoFap, and I have no intention of stopping. Here is a list of the big things I have noticed have changed for me in these 30 days. Keep in mind I really didn’t notice any differences until around 20 days or so.
Dreams – My dreams have become more vivid and interesting. I often dream I relapse as well
Motivation – I have more motivation to do small things like chores etc, hobbies as well. Before NoFap if I saw something that needed to be done I would often ignore it, but now I take it on no problem, and often enjoy doing it! This is a double edged sword. While I am more motivated to do things, this means when I am not doing anything/ have nothing to do, I get bored far too easily. Where as before I was ok to just sit around and do nothing for a day, that bothers the hell outta me now
Self Improvement – NoFap has given me drive to start drinking more water daily and I have started jogging again 6 mornings a week.
Eating – I have found I am less interested in junk food and enjoy eating healthier food. I am more hungry at meal times, but less hungry others, so I snack less. And when I do it is healthy stuff.
Mood – I have found I am just happier in general, on a very fundamental level. Sure things till might make me sad, but deep down I am more at peace. My family has even said they noticed I seem different recently. I don’t get angry as easily, and am able to let things go. I find I have been kinder to people as well.
Skin – My skin has begun to really clear up. This may also be partly due to the extra water I am drinking, tho I suspect it is a combination of that and NoFap. It isn’t perfect yet but in general it is smoothing out, softening up, and the acne I do have is way less prominent. My skin hasn’t been this clear in 5 years.
Girls/relationships – Last but not least, the one that most people wonder about. In general I connect better with people, I laugh more, am more confident and outgoing, strike up more conversations with people. I am less nervous around strangers. I have met one girl a few days ago who was showing a lot of interest in me and I was able to banter along with her and was very outgoing. She was just drawn to me. I think it was the NoFap attraction you always hear about. So far she was the only girl like this, but I haven’t had opportunity to meet many others yet. I also had the balls to ask for her contact info and sort of asked her out later. The latter of which I especially would not have been able to do before NoFap
UPDATE: 100 days!
So Today I reached 100 days. This is by far the furthest I have ever gone on NoFap, and honestly it has been amazing. I just took it one day at a time really. Looking back, I have actually come so far, and didn’t think I would at some points, especially starting out. I wanna keep this real, so I won’t romanticize anything, I will just be brutally honest about my experience with NoFap.
Starting this journey, I initially had 3 goals. To reach 90 days, to start a new great life in university, and for the next time I o’d to be with a girl and not my hand. Well I can say that all those and so much more has happened, and it has been so great seeing all the unexpected changes that have come from NoFap.
I for sure noticed an upward spike around day 30 where I had immense benefits, levels of which I haven’t since reached, but my normal now is still above my normal 3 months ago.
I am just all around happier in general, a very fundamental happiness. Obviously I have my bad days, but I have a generally better outlook on life.
I have noticed two main differences about me now and 3 months ago. My skin is immensely clearer than it was and has been for a long time. Whether it is a direct impact from NoFap or other changes I have made due to it, idk, but I do know the two have occurred together.
I am also far more social and outgoing than before. I have little issue putting myself out there now and talking to people. Where before I would think things over before saying things to people, worrying about every little detail, I often just say things now (I know this sounds bad like I have no filter or something, but I more so mean I have a normal level now where as before I would overthink everything) This all occurred at the perfect time, I started university and have made so many friends. I just talk to everyone. For the first time in life I find myself initiating conversations with strangers, some of which have led to some great friendships.
NoFap has motivated me to initiate self improvements as well. I am still working on some of these, but I have the drive to them now where I wouldn’t have before.
Urges were never to hard to beat for me, but I find now 100 days after, I almost never have urges anymore. It’s not like I have no Libido, just it is under control.
I am attracted to a more broad range of girls than I used to be, and I think this is a direct result of NoFap. I find myself thinking a girl is cute where as before I wouldn’t have even given her a second glance.
The whole “Magical female attraction” thing you hear about on here isn’t real, atleast not in my experience. There has however been an increase in female attraction. Especially spiking in the last month or so, and it has been more strong than any point in life. I used to not really have much luck with girls, but that hasn’t been the case at all now. I won’t go into details but yeah, definitely more interest from the opposite sex that has coincided with doing NoFap. I’ll just say my Nofap is no longer no PMO because of it, just no PM.
My life is definitely better now than it was before NoFap, on every level. I don’t ever wanna go back. If anyone out there is struggling to get started on this journey just know I was in your shoes 3 months ago, wondering if there was even any point to doing this. I wish I could go and tell myself that yes! It will be worth it. Not only will your life be better, but the need for PMO in your life may fade away.
