More social & active, clearer & faster thinking, much more comfortable in my own skin

successI'm finally staring 90 days in the face. I thought back to a time in my life when things were much darker. Isolated from people at times, not feeling good about myself, very withdrawn and a captive of the addiction known as PMO.

I feel like I've come out as a completely new person

desert flowersThese past two weeks have been the best two weeks of my life, I feel like I've come out as a completely new person, I have had my friends complimenting me on how much healthier I look and how impressed they are with the weight I've lost lately.

Age 26 - ED cured, social anxiety near zero, increased confidence, mentally sharper

Flowing waterI am a 26 Y/O male, started fapping at the age of 11 or 12 and it was all down hill from there. I never felt confident as a man, viewed all women as sex objects, isolated except for 1-2 good friends, feared talking to people (to the point of not saying a word when a girl tried for at least 45min to talk to me). I got to the point where I was having ED issues with pretty girls.

Age 29 - (ED), I am a much better person for it

lakeBit of background - I'm just turned 29, single and from the UK.. I've lurked on the subreddit for some time and eventually tried it towards the end of last year, did a few 3-4 weekers, and also hit a 47 day streak.

Age 25 - took the initiative, threw a house party...and got laid!

happy guyWell I’ve made it to day 90 and I just wanted to share a few thoughts and explain my journey in a bit more depth to hopefully motivate others in the same way success stories did me on my way to get to 90 days.

Medical Doctor - HOCD: Extreme fetish porn and acting out

confused doctorI am a medical doctor myself, but I thought I'd focus on the sexuality side of things. I am a heterosexual man, 100%, always have been and always will be, just like I believe you to be.

No more depression or social anxiety, increased attention, I feel like a rock

happy guy90 Days have passed. It wasn't easy but it's worth it. My next mission is to "survive" this year without masturbation. Without porn is becoming quite easy although the temptation is still there.

Age 24 - No more delayed ejaculation, got GF & more happy than ever (transexual porn & escorts)

happy coupleAlright it's time to give back to the community! I'll try to make it short. I used to watch porn 1-5 times a day like every day. It got to the point where it got extremely hard to climax with girls.

YBOP review of "The New Naked" by urologist Harry Fisch, MD

Eminent urologist Harry Fisch, MD has performed a much needed service by saying some things that need to be said about missing pieces in today's naive understanding of human sexuality. For example, he addresses the adverse effects of excessive internet porn use on men's sexual function and expectations, as well as the adverse effects of too much sex toy use in women. He also advises people who need help to get it from therapists who actually understand sexual addiction. (Many sexologists still deny its existence!)

'Generation X-Rated': Global News Canada (Porn-Induced ED), featuring Dr. Abraham Morgentaler

‘High desire’, or ‘merely’ an addiction? A response to Steele et al. by Donald L. Hilton, Jr., MD

SNP logoComments: the following is a response to this study published in July 2013 by SPAN Lab. The study was promoted by the head of SPAN, Nicole Prause, as a major challenge to the concepts of porn and sex addiction. YBOP analyzed her deeply flawed study at the time it was published (UCLA's SPAN Lab Touts Empty Porn Study As Ground-Breaking).

Are Prostitutes the Answer?

woman with money in high heel shoeI'm fortunate, in that I had a relatively normal sex life before Internet porn came along. Unfortunately, a lot of young men coming of age these days have never had that opportunity and their very first sexual experience is one of frustration and disappointment because of erectile dysfunction.

Age 31 - reclaiming my masculinity

determined guyIt's been a long time since I've been active in this community, but I thought I owed you all a debt of gratitude in the form of this post, because now, finally, after a year of trying and failing and failing and more failing, I have achieved what I thought was the impossible - 90 days of complete PMO abstinence - on my birthday no less!

ED cured. My emotions are way stronger. Girls are more beautiful

rock hard signJust wanted to share my experience with 90 days of no fap, hoping this might encourage some of you guys.
