After a painful break up with my ex-fiance last year, I got into a self improvement kick. I bought self help books, lost around 30 lbs, dressing better, grooming better and eventually started to feel better about myself. Then, I had my first hook-up opportunity post breakup, and could not maintain an erection. From this subreddit, and a bit of research, I confirmed this was PIED. I had been PMO-ing twice a night for almost a decade. I was ready to make a change.
Here are some benefits I’ve noticed on NoFap:
- A major boost in confidence
- More girls checking me out
- More present in social situations
- Made more friends
- Being invited more often
- Improved platonic relationships with girls
- Less social anxiety
- Can hold a conversation with anyone (pretty girls included)
As far as my PIED goes, I’m not sure if that’s remedied or not. I haven’t had sex since the breakup, and I honestly do not see myself as a 1 night stand kinda guy. I’ll update when my dry spell is over.
It’s worth it, keep going brothers.
