I'm on day 90. This is my second serious attempt, with the first one being 12 days. It has been a beautiful ride. Benefits:
-I'm getting better socially
-More control of my impulses
-More motivation ( I'm doing good in college, I started 100 pushups, my room is cleaner then ever before, I'm reading lots of books like I used to before my PMO days, started meditating. The list goes on and on.)

I'll keep this (semi) brief, because all of you have read about the benefits before. I'm here to tell you that this. shit. works. I had a huge problem. I easily fapped [to porn] every day. Multiple times a day was the average. I would seriously fap on my lunch break at work. I would fap before going to sleep every night. And even though I would sit down and think "I shouldn't be doing this and I'm harming myself" - I still couldn't stop.
Background I am a 32-year old guy. More than 3 months ago, I started no-PMO journey aiming for a new life by the motivation of YBOP.com. I followed articles and science behind PMO for several months. In the middle of December (16th, 2012), I finally started my counter of no-PMO life.
There's so many 90 days reports that I think I'm just going to list some of the most notable changes that come to my mind right now. Many of the changes I've felt may not be direct result of nofap, but instead of my mind going "Well, you can't run away to PMO, so why not do something useful instead?" I'm not going back to PMO ever again, I know it.
From zero to 100. Hi every1, I’m Aiyuris, a 25 years old guy who lives in Italy. I discovered this community something like 10 months ago. For me now, it is like decades away from reality. But let’s start slow….
I'm not going to say much, I'm just going to say that I've been porn free for exactly 6 months, and can count the number of times I've fapped since then on one hand. I'm just going to list all the benefits that I've experienced with NoFap:
The last few months were nothing but great, let me tell you! I started this whole nofap journey around July last year because i was at a point in my life where i was just fed up with myself and couldn't stand it anymore (was mortified because my ex-best friend cheated on me with my ex-girlfriend for several months; had to move out because of it ( didn't want to stay there anymore)).
It's been a long journey but I finally made it past 90 days. Actually, the reason this post isn't coming exactly on day 90 is that about a week ago I made it a mission to not go on reddit, limit facebook use, and generally spend less time on the internet. But here I am and here's a bunch of reasons why the last months have been some of the greatest of my life.
