I just wanted to say thanks basically for the guys running YBOP – you’ve been a life-saving form of support. Just reading what others have been through and achieved is a massive help. I’ve just completed 90 days without looking at porn.
First time reaching 90 days! I have had an insane 3 months. Lost the most weight I've lost since working out and below 300 for the first time in forever. I asked a woman out and have been going on dates regularly with her. I put in the time and effort to go for my promotion (waiting to hear back but feeling good).
I'm a regular guy, educated, sociable, reasonably good-looking, and in good health who started looking at porn around the age of 12. Eventually I got the opportunity to have sex but I couldn't maintain an erection and penetrate, and I didn't find it as stimulating as edging to porn. I tried all the erection pills, and even then I would lose an erection. Humiliated, I gave up on having sex.
Results after achieving 300 days of NoFap What I have found out is that the best way to deal with it is cram your life into deliberate awkward public situations so you cannot sneak peek at porn when the urge arrives. Work on tasks that really challenge you both mentally and physically. Take time out for you and reward yourself for reaching milestones.

This has been harder than any break up I have ever had to endure. Basically, I started fapping to porn at age 11. I am 30 years of age currently. I never had trouble getting women but it was the combination of both porn, fantasy, internet dating and multiple sexual partners that were not fulfilling me spiritually, financially, or making a better person as a whole.
Any of you who are serious fapstronauts starting to discover that weird trends are happening inside you? That you're starting to act more like a man than a female? You're becoming less listening and Stewart Smalley and more Aragorn?
"What attracts you physically in a man?" Someone asked me recently. Naturally I replied that the sexiest thing about a man is what's inside his head. Naturally I didn't hear from him again. (This was almost certainly a blessing.)
It's been termed a social experiment — a whole generation growing up with free and easy access to online pornography. Those behind a symposium at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on Monday morning call it an abject failure.
1 Year report. I first struggled with NoFap before I even had heard of NoFap over 10 years ago in my late teens. Through studying meditation courses and books on esoteric psychology and the like, I had developed NoFap streaks in the past (unbadged). I do feel NoFap added that extra realm and support to really push through and actualize these objectives.
