Age 29 - Finally 90: 3 Year journey, what worked for me and what didn't

I've been attempting to get off Porn since about 2013. My first streak I combined with nofap and made it 64 days (I had a gf at the time) and it was hard. Then after that the most I could make it was maybe a month and then I'd slip again, although each time my porn consumption got less and less. Here are some insights I learned and what finally got me there:

90 Days - Harder erections, Way more productive, Way less anxiety, Far happier, Women are prettier

It's been at least 3 months since the last time I PMO. I do not count the days since I think that can backfire. I made the decision to not masturbate to porn, and I don't need to count the days since the last time I did it. I been on a self improvement journey since the past 5 months, NoFap has been a big part of it.

Age 22 - Healed after 4 years of PIED!

I started nofap in April because I finally realized that what was affecting me was PIED. I was never getting hard, and as a result, I built up an anxiety about initiating sex. II was having it, it was terrible (like I would lose my hard on or orgasm really quick) . I was watching porn everyday, but after nofap, I haven't seen porn for 2 months, but have MO'd twice within those months. These are the results....

Age 21 - Increased Confidence, Motivation & Energy, Addictions gone, No more ADHD meds needed

I have been fapping 2-4 times a day for the last 7 years, I am now 21 y/o. Like your average porn addict I started off with 'soft porn' and over the years my fetishes and interests dramatically changed. I eventually got PIED and couldn't get hard and or O during sex with a girl I was seeing for like 2 weeks.

Aside from my PMO addiction, in the last year I became addicted to ADHD meds and cigarettes, as well as drinking in excess. I used to smoke 10-15 ciggs a day. I Would also double or triple my ADHD meds dosage everyday.

Shit was fucked up! lol

Age 32 - Greater confidence, Better eye contact, Improved health & posture, More energy, Sleep less but don't feel tired

I completed around 550 days so far, I am completely abstinent sexually. I started it on December 2014, and I never heard about nofap movement at the time of start. Just, I was in deep depression because of failure after failure lost multiple jobs and failed in a business.

We need to do a better job about educating kids on porn's negative effects

I just recently watched a YouTube video talking about how Porn "tube sites" really got going around 2006. It made me think about how the first time I was showed porn was around 2008. Even though I didn't really start seeking it until 2009, I realize how I truly had no idea on what effect it would have on me.

Age 19 - Porn-induced ED gone. It's only when I look at my life 90 days ago and compare it to now, do I see the amazing differences

I want to start by saying that stories like this keep me motivated, so I hope it can do the same for one of you. I'm 19 years old, studying at university, and I've been using since I was very young. What started with just a picture of a cute girl in a bikini soon progressed into dark, fucked up, internet-fueled fantasies.

My girlfriend WANTS me for the first time in our relationship

So it happened!!!.. we did it after 3 months! was amazing!!! we made out like never before! such a passion! i thank god for this moment, she said she felt really better and a huge weight of her shoulder cause she wanted me naturally for the  first time in months.. maybe 8 months... i know right!!!..

Age 24 - 200 days - First girlfriend, tremendous strides

I will finally hit the 200 day mark tomorrow. A goal I have been setting for myself for the last 2 years now. I wrote myself a letter about 2 years ago, that I would read once I reach this milestone. I am nervous yet excited at the same time. The struggles has been abundant since the start

Age 30s - VR pushed my addiction over the edge - Sex with wife now multiple times better

I'm in my mid thirties, I used Porn for almost 20 years. I feel very lucky that I didn't grow up with internet porn, hi-def video porn, porn streaming sites and especially VR porn because I think that my addiction would have been worse, or perhaps I would have realized it was an issue earlier, IDK.
