27yo married male, struggled with PIED via PMO since teen years. Exposed to internet porn at a relatively young age; nothing special there, but over time I ran way with it to the point of routine...at least once a day, nearly everyday, sometimes 3-4 in a day over 15+ years.
Finally reached 90 days I joined nofap in April and it took me 6 months to reach my goal. I did hardmode because I don't have a girlfriend. Nofap has not changed me, I changed because I chose to. I chose to do to nofap and that was my first step towards self-improvement.
I am 25yrs old, I started PMO at age 8,went from magazines to tv to videos then highspeed internet porn, then pretty much became a social outcast and made my room into my cave and asylum, pretty much a loner, depressed all time, just went straight from school to work and home never really wanted to socialize or be out with people, playing videogames all time and being on internet not even socializing with my family.
I might as well start from the beginning. Since I had discovered orgasm at 11 years old I have been a chronic masturbater since that time. I would spend hours at a time in my room draining my balls until nothing was in them but air. I wasted teens and young adulthood with excessive fapping as well. I am 45 and back during that time, porn wasn't as easily accessible as it is today. I mostly used my imagination and at times we had to resort to Archie comics (can anybody remember Veronica in a bikini?),
22 /m from northern Norway. First off I want to thank this forum and all the amazing people contributing every day, you guys are truly great. This will be my first time posting because its time for me to give something back.
I've experienced more things in the last 90 days than the last 4 years combined. I started fapping in grade 10 and it quickly became an escape behaviour from my OCD and depression. I was soon hooked and no matter how many times I said this was gunna be my last time, it never was.
I can't remember how I stumbled upon The Great Porn Experiment lecture. But that video really was the preface of a hell of a change in my life. You say abstaining from masturbation gives you more confidence? That will make you much more attractive to girls? Sign me up!
Initial Post - I'm 26 and I have porn induced ED - Ok so I have been masturbating to porn since I had a computer at like 11 or 12. It escalated pretty bad and I now get off to the really kinky stuff. I actually didn't get any problems with libido until a few months ago, but I have been bored with porn for a long time, craving more normal sex with women.
Man! This is unbelievable.I signed up for the challenge on Feb. 24, 2014 and here I am 216 days later, still at it, haven't fapped even once. Not to sound arrogant but, I feel invincible right now. Over the past 7 months, I have changed a lot.
I have gone from a mediocre student to the top of my class at college.
It's been 5 months now since I have watched any porn. I am getting very healthy erections even just from kissing women and it's great. I regularly chat up women on the street (daygame) and have become a lot more confident with the opposite sex.
