I have been a fapstronaut for a year now but deleted my old account. Several months ago I started fapping regularly again, but am now two months in to my new streak. I feel as though I have made large-scale changes to my state of mind. I regularly feel awesome.
I'm 22 years old at the moment - I've been a porn junkie since I first started watching it in my early teen years. Binged heavily up until age 18 or so, and was aware that it was a problem since at least age 16. After starting college, I drastically toned down the porn-watching, though I tended to binge going home on breaks. Things have been steadily improving over the last few years.
I was a prisoner of the PMO cycle, and I came across nofap when I started having ED problems in bed. To make things extra stressful, my wife and I were trying to have kids. Not having sex was not an option and I needed to change. When I began nofap, I struggled to just get it up with my wife, or maintain an erection long enough to orgasm...now, when my wife is ovulating, I have sex about just about every day for the entire week.
I was addicted to porn from age 14 to age 27. That’s 13 years and a LOT of porn watching. What started innocent enough at age 12 when I found my dad’s Playboy collection, turned into an obsessive addiction to Internet videos and DVDs that literally took over my life. Because of my excessive porn habit, at various points in my life, I had terrible problems with Porn-Induced ED and sexual anxiety. At 18 I experienced mild PIED, and in my mid-twenties it became so bad I was frequently depressed.
As most of you, I started fapping from an early age, without noticing, fapping changed my perspective about sex, as time passed by I was needing more hardcore porn than before. I unconsciously jumped from fapping at magazines like Playboy to feeling unsatisfied with 1 fap per day on hardcore porn.
Day 100. I haven't been actively counting since day 45, but it was a nice coincidence that yesterday was the day I got to spend the night with a beautiful lady. Although nerves made it a haltering start, I can now confidently say that my ED has gone away.
