I'm going to keep this brief, I'm really just writing because the success stories have kept me going during the hard times so it's time I shared mine. I've been a PMO addict for about a decade now (fapping compulsively for even longer but not with porn).
I am a 26 year old female. I was in a pretty fruitless long term relationship where I was able to utilize porn to pick up the slack. After the relationship ended, I definitely increased my porn use to every day. I met my now fiance and we have sex pretty regularly.
I honestly really don't even know what to say right now. I'm super excited I've made it this far; I remember the days when I literally used to imagine and dream about this. I feel obligated to share my story and motives before getting into how NoFap has affected me.
Wow. I can't believe I did this. 180k is a lot. That's just a bit less than Harry Potter 4, just to give you an idea. Sure, I got a big correction to do now, but I've created something out of simple words.
[www.rare.us] Under-40 Poll: Porn is ruining our sex lives? More young people than not say Internet porn has no effect on their real-life sex lives, according to a new Rare poll. Forty-eight percent said they weren’t bothered by it, while 33 percent of young voters said porn was having a negative effect. Nineteen percent were unsure.
Status Quo (For Now). In mid-July I published a blog discussing a recently released fMRI (brain imaging) study showing that the brain activity of sex addicts, when they are shown pornography, mirrors the brain activity of drug addicts when they are exposed to drug-related imagery.
I want to start by saying that I feel to be somewhat in the minority here, since I am older and married 18 years - that's more years than some of you have been alive. I'm not doing this in hard mode, and I am trying to have sex as often as I feel comfortable doing so.
Man has it been a long time since i was here! I can't believe I'm 2 months away from 1 year fap free, its mind blowing to say the least. I have certainly changed over the time I've been doing this, I met a girl about 6 months ago and we started dating not long after.
Just want to say thanks to this forum and everyone on it. Using a throwaway account but a regular lurker on reddit and I stumbled across this forum a few months back. Tried a few times to break the cycle and finally made some progress with 34 days now since I fapped. Have been prescribed cialis by my doctor for years even though im only 32 years old.
I made a post awhile back about doing a 365 day monk mode nofap with a wife. On day 366 I made love to my wife. Since then I have stopped posting here. I was wondering what my counter was at so I decided to check in. Still going strong. I hope this simple check in can give hope to someone who thinks its impossible.
Started Nofap a year ago last September. I've had varying streaks from my first 116 days to one month and less. Nofap has been a great tool to push forward in life and feel better in general. I'm a lot stronger,more confident, determined and happier than I was a year ago.
