Past a 100 days. Seems only like yesterday I started the challenge. But looking back, it's been a long time. I started out as a loser living in my parents’ house, no job, no college, really thin. I look myself in the mirror today and I barely recognize myself. I realized it was high time I shared what helped me to reach my goal with others who might be suffering like me.
Hello NoFap brothers, long time lurker here but I felt that now was a good time to post because yesterday I finally completed 90 days of NoFap. And it is freaking amazing! But first a little background on me: I'm a 22 year old man who has been jerking off and watching porn since I was 12 and that messed me up big time.
Porn warped my perception of women because I expected them to look and perform like porn stars and as you can guess this didn't end too well.
TLDR: Six months ago was the last time I saw porn or PMO'd; quitting porn for my own sake & working through this with a group of like-minded fellas has been huge and totally worth it, even though sometimes it just seems pointless and hard.
When I started this thing 90 days ago, I was going through the most difficult period of my life mentally. I had a panic attack in an exam hall with well over 600 students in attendance. As soon as I got home, I released my stress through porn. That would be the last time I've PMO'd till now.
This link will summarize everything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQlIhraqL7o [“I Just Had Sex!”]. Thank you, NoFap. Thank you so much. I am not letting PMO ruin me anymore. I've been trying for three years now, but never took it seriously.
Sounds like bullshit I know but hear me out. Due to nofap I get erections nonstop. I literally can feel the blood flowing in my body and what not. When I'm fapping and looking at porn I get less erections obviously.
Social anxiety and low confidence was my whole life. Got into PMO at age 14.... multiple times everyday up until age 20. At age 20 I stumbled upon this for the first time. Had a streak of 45 days, got terrible anxiety the whole time, but felt more energy. Gave up and never looked back. Life continued to be bland and boring.
I was never addicted to porn or fapping, however I think it greatly reduced my motivation to seek out real relationships with actual women. I hit a low spot about 90 days ago and decided to try for 90 days on nofap.
Hey guys and gals (I know we're out there too). I just want to say how much I love this subreddit. [TRIGGER WARNING] I used to be a webcam model. It was really fun at first, I won't lie. Having people in a trance like that can be very satisfying. Or so I thought anyway.
I am a 20 yo European dude, 3rd year at university. This is my NoFap story, which started 9 months ago. Story 11 months ago I was lost. I started questioning my life and life in general, went searching for meaning in life and why my life was the way it was. I felt like something was missing in my life but did not really know what.
For me NoFap was life changing experience. I was shy and easily embarrassed because I used to sit in my home on computer watching porn and masturbating and NoFap gave my energy and motivation to change my life. I started to going out more, hanging out with friends, started working out, today I'm going on my first MMA workout with my friend and I'm excited about it :D
I found out I had porn induced erectile dysfunction - literally last year when I couldn't perform with a beautiful woman. I started my reboot July of 2015 and I can say I have been free from porn for a year now. It was tough but worth it at the end.
