I started around 6 years back around the end of middle school and got hooked like everyone else. The only time I tried to do nofap was a few months after i started coz i thought I'd blown through my data cap.
Started fapping at a young age, now 31 and have been fapping to porn for a long time, before high-speed internet, started with images, then those short 5-10 second clips, then torrents, then full on high-speed-everything-at-your-fingerprints.
Almost all of the reports I see about nofap tells amazing stories how they have become better men from abstaining from masturbation. I feel like I have not witnessed the same 'superpowers' as most people have.
I wouldn't say I was addicted to porn or masturbation. However with every partner I have felt little sensation and been unable to come. For years this got me so down, as I could not enjoy sex, and having kids would be really difficult, potentially impossible.
POST CONTAINS SOME BIG TRIGGERS - I first start watching porn and masturbating to it when I was 12. Now I am 18 and I only discover femdom like a year ago and it already had a fucking big impact on me. I am addict. And I am mad also.
COMMENTS: Unlike previous studies, this experimental set-up more closely matches internet porn use where the user can surf tube sites and choose porn they find most arousing. Strong emotions such as disgust and anxiety induced by guilt and embarrassment elevate dopamine and thus arousal.
I've known about NoFap for years. Tried it a few times to entertain myself, always failed after a few days and never thought much about it, because I'm 'sex positive' and that justifies fapping how often you like, to whatever turns you on.
Yes! I finally did it and can now feel really normal. All my sexual related issues already seem distant and it feels natural and not that big of a deal to perform as I should in bed. But how did I manage to overcome five years of suffering and almost a decade of excessive pmo?
