Age 18 - I've had a better time in these last 6 months and made more memories than the first 3 1/2 years of highschool combined

happy guyI started watching porn around the age of 10 and fapping around the age of 14. It got up to 2-3 times a day for the last 4 years until I found this sub and decided to quit. When I first found Nofap in early Feb I thought this could be the cause of all my problems. I failed the first 3-4 times until Feb 20th the last time I fapped or watched porn.

1 year - My wife and I have a much more active and passionate sex life.

happy coupleOK I've managed one year with absolutely no porn or masturbation and I thought it would be polite to post a report of my experiences. Apologies for its length.

JAMA Psychiatry logoCOMMENTS: Published in JAMA Psychiatry (May, 2014), this was the first brain-scan study on porn users.

Age 21 - ED: 2.5 years of struggle, but I am finally there

couple's legsWell it's been a long road like 2.5 years. I started young probably around 11 or 12 and used to watch and masturbate to porn at least twice a day for a long time. I didn't experience any ED tho until college.

1 year+ -- a simple tip which will guarantee success

moving energyIt's been a year since I did the dirty. Stopping was fiendish. Six years of daily dipping into the naughtybox, it was like being unplugged from the matrix - everything was shattered and I found myself raw, naked, shocked and covered in white sticky crap. It took months for my brain to recover. I felt like shit.

Age 39 - I hadn't cum with a woman in almost ten years

happy sleeping coupleI'm a 39 year old male, and have been on and off the NoFap train for about a year. Longest streak 55 days. But also had some weeks/months where I'd completely relapsed. Currently at 40 days, though this time (thankfully and unapologetically) it hasn't been on hard mode.

Age 23 - ED: What was worse than the PIED is the desensitization to the world.

kissI spent about two yrs in denial before this streak. I lost my v-card on day 70. Suffered from PIED since I could remember (I'm 23 M). What was worse than the PIED is the desensitization to the world. I found it hard at time to enjoy anything.

Age 24 - Tastes for gay porn gone, feeling stronger

tigerI was facing horrible social anxiety, terrible fear, weak when I was PMO' ing. Plus I was getting addicted to shemale porn. Now after 6months of nopmo with several relapses I thing gay porn is not my taste.. I feel as strong  as sun.. STAY STRONG  bros...

I regained my innocence and feel like the kid I was many years ago.

happy guySo it has been 69 days of hard mode for me. My last relapse was the 5th of June after a busted 19 day streak. I have decided to continue NoFap for the rest of my life. Before NoFap I was an entirely different human being inside and out. Weak, reserved, lazy, tired, void of emotions, and a shell of my former self.

Age 19 - I had weird fetishes and could not stay hard during sex

teen couple I had weird fetishes and could not stay hard during sex, 80 odd days in now fap now and I feel like I could screw the world and do a pretty good job at it as well. Sex anxiety has gone away I am now having great sex with my girlfriend.

Age 24 - Life changed more than I can imagine in a year

happy guyI don't even know where to start with this. I am an addict, I didn't even know it. I grew up all my life surrounded by drug addicts whom I loathed. I aspired to be the exact opposite of them. I never expected to be an addict myself. A sex addict, and a porn addict.

Age 24 - Because my anxiety is gone, I can live a normal life again

happy guyI'm going to keep this short because many of the 90 day reports repeat themselves for the benefits. Since Nofap, I have started taking cold showers daily and also started a meditation program.
