I am 36 years old and also I started masturbating when I was 12 and using porn when I was 16. I also started watching porn magazines and cable shows until I moved on to internet porn. While I was a teenager I didn't have any visible consequence until I reached my 20's. During my early 20's I didn't suffer of erectil dysfunction, but I was unable to get off while having sex.
I can finally say I did it. Not here to brag about my accomplishments but I can say it works. There are too many things that have changed ever since I started, both positive and negative, as life tends to throw in a bit of both.
[This] is purely my personal view and not meant to offend anyone. Porn is not real, certainly it does not reflect how we live and have sex. It’s just a faked pretended fantasy that keeps many of us addicted and slaves by watching at the same time treating and abusing or taking advantage of the girls who actually do these scenes. In short the viewers get addicted and they get lost in their life and the actually actors get lost in their life as well. So how did it all go wrong?
I can attest to a lot of changes. I now have a better erection, very strong and feel so energetic. I relate better with people and I can set clear goal and focus on them, well I could do that before but its way more easier now. I really feel like having sex though but babe is like 196km away. I don't know what to do, I really don't want to cheat on her and I also don't want to patronize a prostitute.
I want to thank each and every one of you. I feel like I owe you all so much for helping me lift this heavy weight off of my life which has been PIED. I have done 30 days hard mode, and I cannot be happier with my life. My mind feels like it is back to the way it was before I started watching porn. I can now see the beauty in women again.
This has been a harrowing journey guys, as I have a girlfriend and was a 4 time/day PMOer from age 13 till now (I'm 23). I've never felt this capable of being happy. During my tenure as a rampant PMO-er I felt hopeless to the point of not realizing that any other feeling was possible. For the first time since puberty I don't feel like that.
Do you guys ever feel like fapping is just something you do? Something you'll never beable to stop? I did once, but I sure as F wasn't about to let it control me like that. I started fapping in November of 2011. Wish I never did. The things I thought off, yuck!
I've officially entered my first 3 digits for the first time in 10 years since I got addicted to PMO. How is it so far? One word... awesome! I am 27 years old. I've been addicted to porn since 17. I first started trying NoFap 1 or 2 years ago. I felt that my life was stuck in many dimensions and I was wondering if this PMO addiction is the thing that was holding me back.
Today marks an official success story of my reboot and rewiring process: For the first time in my life, I am able to achieve/ maintain an erection and orgasm to vaginal sex WITH a condom on. This has been one, if not THE ONE, reason why I'm trying to quit pornography. Eight years ago I suffered from what many of us have experienced: severe PIDE and PIED.
