Wow, it has been this long already? Ninety days ago I started a journey, and at first I didn't even realise it. I usually PMO'd 2-3 times a day. However, then I went away for 2 days, with other people always present. Couldn't do it for 2 days. I managed, because I kept imagining coming back home, and doing my stuff. Instead, due to some random link on reddit, I ended up on this subreddit and recognised myself quickly.
So I have been going strong for 140 days now, with one relapse in which I masturbated without porn about 40 days ago. Over these past few months, I have attempted to have sex and failed multiple times with multiple different women.
When I woke up on New Years Day, I was lying next to my dream girl after an amazing night of partying with good friends and a crazy night in bed with her. She's incredibly hot, nice, understanding, unassuming and she's graduating in the spring from an Ivy League school.
This is my first time posting but I have found this site to be a huge resource for this addiciton. I started experiencing ED at age 26, while in college and am now 34. That's 8 years of my life, at my sexual prime, that porn stole from me.
How could I possibly have erectile dysfunction? I was only 23 and physically healthy. I went searching and found long threads of guys saying they thought porn had caused their ED. Unbelievable, but turns out it potentially had for me, too. It took me nine months to recover normal sexual function.
I began /r/Nofap around about six months ago. I was in a dire strait: my marks were going downhill; I was in my final year of school; I'd lost none of my weight; I was a complete fucking mess. I had lost the confidence to talk to three girls that had my eye, and I messed up. I had no fucking idea what I was doing with my time, and I constantly contemplated suicide, and self-harm, to make it feel better.
I am 23 year old fapstronaunt from Finland. I found this place about a year ago and was totally blown away by the fact that there were others trying to tackle the same problem I had been trying to tackle for years. Here is a short report I made after finally completing the 90 days challenge.
