Age 24 - Went from internal sales slave to a sales manager, healthier too

I found nofap in 2012. I was suffering from testicle pain and after doing some research on my condition I was led to believe it could heal itself if I abstained from ejaculation for 3-6 months. As someone who jacked off twice a day sometimes as many as 6 or 8, this opened my eyes to just how habitually PMO had become.

Age 20 - Confidence I never had before, love for life

You ever start a streak with the feeling that this is going to be the one? That's the streak I'm on. Here I am on day 192 a completely new person with confidence in myself that I never had before. Those who are struggling this is a message that it does get better with time and perseverance. If you relapse pick yourself up and continue this streak is a result of many relapses.

Age 23 - Healthy relationship helped me stop relapsing

I'm 23 and I used porn since I was 12. I quit because of religious reasons, but also because having to watch more and more violent porn to get an erection scared me. Benefits? Wedding in Autumn :D

Online sexual activities: An exploratory study of problematic and non-problematic usage patterns in a sample of men (2016)

COMMENTS: A study on French-speaking males (below) found that problematic Internet porn use is associated with reduced erectile function and reduced overall sexual satisfaction. Yet problematic porn users experienced greater cravings. The study appears to report escalation, as 49% of the men viewed porn that "was not previously interesting to them or that they considered disgusting."

Age 26 - Doctor heals his "performance anxiety" by quitting porn

I'm a 26 year old guy who has a pretty long (and pretty typical) history of watching pornography. I started looking at pictures online when I was 14 or 15 and progressed to videos by 16 or 17. Started having sex at 18 and have had a couple long term girlfriends since then (have been dating current girlfriend for three + years).

Age 30 - I got "ME" back, sense of humor

I enjoy the thought of being a man who is on the real journey of outplaying one of the most evil beasts of our time – PMO (if you get to the core, that beast is actually an "old me").

Can you believe it? I am 28, I have posted on here before and my whole life I have suffered from never being able to cum from sex or a blowjob or anything.I have been masturbating and watching porn every night for the past 10 years.

Keep going! New energy and confidence

After 2 months of NoFap i can tell you if you re starting now, please take deep breaths and go on, you will have hard fucking days, but if you resist you'll win. I don t know if it s of no fapping, but my life changed a lot.
