Age 26 - Doctor heals his "performance anxiety" by quitting porn

I'm a 26 year old guy who has a pretty long (and pretty typical) history of watching pornography. I started looking at pictures online when I was 14 or 15 and progressed to videos by 16 or 17. Started having sex at 18 and have had a couple long term girlfriends since then (have been dating current girlfriend for three + years).

Age 30 - I got "ME" back, sense of humor

I enjoy the thought of being a man who is on the real journey of outplaying one of the most evil beasts of our time – PMO (if you get to the core, that beast is actually an "old me").

Age 28 - Delayed Ejaculation cured. My whole life I have suffered from never being able to cum

Can you believe it? I am 28, I have posted on here before and my whole life I have suffered from never being able to cum from sex or a blowjob or anything.I have been masturbating and watching porn every night for the past 10 years. Realizing that women have been walking away from me because of not being able to cum, I decided to make a change once and for all.

Keep going! New energy and confidence

After 2 months of NoFap i can tell you if you re starting now, please take deep breaths and go on, you will have hard fucking days, but if you resist you'll win. I don t know if it s of no fapping, but my life changed a lot.

Louis CK explains why he doesn't use internet porn

Louis makes some interesting points in this interview.

You’ve been saying lately that you’ve quit the internet.
I don’t look at any of it now.

Age 18 - My girlfriend feels the difference

 She just tell me right now that this week I'm weird. She said " I feel like i'm not speaking with you, but with a stranger that is saying whatever". Before I made her laugh easily (I just need 7 days to get my humor back and find my words much more faster, I think it's brain fog that goes away).

Age 21 - Survived a break up and kept rolling

I've always been an introvert like many of you and never had any problems staying alone at home for weeks (or so I thought). Im a 21 one year old guy and this year -because of many reasons- I wasnt able to find a university and spent September through November at home alone playing video games.

Age 28 - Erections harder, more self-control and confidence

I am 28. Been trying to quit for some time but relapse was unavoidable until a month ago when I decided I have had enough and joined nofap 2 weeks ago. I quit because of PIED it was very embarrassing not to get wood when my gf wanted some intimacy and I had to pretend I was unwell.

Age 25 - I was a horrible fetish porn addict. I never exercised. I was a chicken shit. I had serious PIED. School lagged behind

I was a horrible fetish porn addict. I never exercised. I was a chicken shit. I had serious PIED. School lagged behind. My apartment was a neckbeard's lair. I somehow weasled my way into two shitty, desperate relationships through friends. Never had the guts to talk to the ones I really liked.

I'm 25 right now, and I think I started at 14 or so. Went to daily use (and the gross stuff) pretty much during the first couple years.

Age 27 - The usual lifestyle of lethargy and laziness no longer attractive

It has been 365 days since my last P, M or O. I've been on NoFap in Hard Mode (no sex whatsoever and the only release is noctornal) since 15th of June 2015. For reference, I'm a 27 year old male from Australia. I tried NoFap once before but underestimated it and relapsed almost straight away. After that I vowed never again.

Age 23 - I've been doing NoFap on and off for a few years now, and it really has done wonders for me

I've been doing NoFap on and off for a few years now, and it really has done wonders for me. The benefits that most people report of when they start doing this is more confidence, energy, and charisma. I've felt these benefits too, and they give me more than enough reason to continue doing this. For me though, one of the best benefits that it has and transformed my life over these years, was that it gave me the drive I needed to go out and do things with my life.

Age 19 - Boners are back! Sleep improvement, less brain fog

Been batin since ~13, porn since ~14. The biggest benefit for me by a thousand miles so far is I get morning wood and a few spontaneous boners throughout the day (started happening around week 4-5). I’m age 19.

Online sexual activities: An exploratory study of problematic and non-problematic usage patterns in a sample of men (2016)

COMMENTS: A study on French-speaking males (below) found that problematic Internet porn use is associated with reduced erectile function and reduced overall sexual satisfaction. Yet problematic porn users experienced greater cravings. The study appears to report escalation, as 49% of the men viewed porn that "was not previously interesting to them or that they considered disgusting." Interestingly, 20.3% of participants said that one motive for their porn use was "to maintain arousal with my partner." (Rob Weiss does a good job of analyzing this study.)

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:
