Separate neural circuits control cravings vs. healthy eating, researchers find (2015)

Age 30 - My mind and body are finally on the same page sexually

coupleToday marks day 150 of my journey. I have had my ups and downs along the way, with good days and bad days. Some thoughts that are in my head: I look back at the man I was when I reached my lowest point, and I am amazed at how far I've come.

Age 18 - I have lost about 35 lbs and in great shape now

happy guy[The last] 50 days have never gone by so fast, this is actually the first time I visited this site in a while. I have lost about 35 lbs and in great shape now. I was about 200, now I'm 165.

Age 24 - Not addicted, but developed delayed ejaculation: It's cured.

fireworksUnlike many of you, I'm not an addict.  At least, I don't self identity as one.  As a typical, American, 24 year old male, I was definitely a user.  I never really delved into rough or more raunchy scenes than I expect me and my girlfriend to engage in.

Age 24 - Dispelling myths with a no bullshit attitude

pensive guyI am a 24 year old male. From a young age, I was quiet, gentle and friendly. But I always had a strong sexual side. I remember a day in primary school when a friend and I told a girl we wanted to fuck her. She cried.

Age 32 - Delayed ejaculation cured. So many more benefits

happy guyME: 32 y/o, single. Here to post initial 30 success story since reading other people's success stories has been/still is one of my biggest motivators. HERE B/C: a) wanking too much, sometimes to porn, which led to decreased sensitivity during sex resulting in not being able to orgasm during sex.

Age 24 - That magnetic, on top of the world feeling is back!

on top of the worldFirstly, I like a lot of you, discovered the benefits of abstaining from PMO long before I found the Nofap community. It happened as sort of an accident.

Age 22 - Life has gotten DRAMATICALLY BETTER (1 yr)

Happy coupleI was watching a video on youtube today when they mentioned nofap briefly and had completely forgotten about how i got started on my new life.

Age 27 - How I beat Porn-induced ED

handsMy personal story: Had PIED for years, then 70 days nofap. Nowadays I masturbate sometimes, not very often though - I try to keep it at bay - I do not make a sacrilege out of it, but still no porn at all!

Age 20 - far more enjoyment out of the fundamentals in life

happy young guyI have to admit, I was sceptical when I first came across NoFap and started reading about PMO addiction, and everything that us No Fappers stand by, I guess.

You may have wondered why internet porn has become so freely available on the internet these days, if you're a young male with a little bit of spare time on his hands, no pun intended, then it is pretty easy to fall into a dark spiral of daily wankathons in the comfort of your own bedroom.

Age 18 - Confidence, energy, focus, drive, the works

young guyGood day fellow fapstronauts. Today i come to reflect on the last five months of my journey. I'm a senior in highschool, and after a very rough breakup at the end of last school year i decided to make some changes. However, due to PMO, very little changed for quite awhile. Until the beginning of september, that is.
