I'm a private, quiet person by nature, and I never felt the need to speak up. But now, roughly 500 days into my journey on NoFap, I wanted to write this-to say thank you to r/NoFap, to all the people who helped me along on my journey.
Holy shit. After 64 days in to this streak and about 1.5 years of PornFree and NoFap struggling, I can say that I'm rebooted. And let me tell you, this is amazing, strange, beautiful and scary at the same time.
I moved on from fapping 12 times a day (that's my record...not even kidding), or from 4 times a day on a casual basis, to not fapping at all. I've seen things that if I were to say them I'd be blacklisted and banned from 4 countries and 7 states.
You do not have to be a prude to worry about porn. Thanks to the Internet, Americans have been pushed, unwittingly, into a vast social experiment testing whether unfettered access to the most freakish and foul pornography will warp sexual relations for generations to come.
Never thought I'd be back here. I posted a few times on NoFap on my old account in the past to help overcome my porn addiction. I was a success story. I stopped watching porn, and I regained full and robust woodies for the ladies to enjoy. But it wasn't happily ever after.
I first discovered nofap before I even knew I had porn-induced erectile dysfunction about 2 years ago. I could only make it a few days or weeks at a time at first and then I would binge for long periods between attempts.
