I am 19 years old. Today is my first day of being a fapstronaut. My father is my inspiration. Since I can remember, my mother has had serious health problems resulting in at least one major surgery a year. To pay off these medical bills as well as my sister's and my own tuition, my dad works a great deal of overtime, on the night shift, at his job. He would work all night, then sleep during the day.
Every person on this subreddit has his/her own reasons for taking on r/pornfree, but for those of you who may be on the fence about partaking in this challenge, let me persuade you with several of the best and most obvious benefits.
1) Tissue boxes last for-fucking-ever. Before I would go through one every other week but with r/pornfree I feel like I'll never run out. Why you may ask? Because they only go on my nose, not on my dongle.

I'm 26 years old and week ago I was virgin too. Now I am no more. :) I started NoFap exactly on 1 January 2013, it just turned out that way. I wasn't very good with girls, even though I'm quite handsome (in my opinion).
Youth and intense sexual arousal are a surprisingly volatile combination
Research on animals suggests that first sexual experiences may have more power to shape our individual sexual proclivities than we would guess, and that they do so via specific brain mechanisms. Consider the following research on young, virgin rats:

I'm 23, male, just out of university, working a tech job in Silicon Valley. Started PMOing at 14. Began current streak Jan 9. 3 days from now will be the 90th day of my streak. I'll be in the middle of a very busy week at work, so I'm going to post the "obligatory report" now. No plans to relapse in the next 3 days.
• Introduction. This going to be long, a beast of a wall of text, but I’m not apologising, so settle in or move along. About me, 34 M, been checking out porn since I was about ten, grew up in the hard copy magazine era, then moved into Internet porn as it gradually became the monster it now is.
Despite the fact that I haven't hit 90 days yet, I figured I would give a brief overview of how my /r/nofap journey has been being that the next few days I will be busy. I'm a 16 year old boy whose life has been turned upside down since the discovery of this magical subreddit. I have been watching internet porn (PMO) for all of 2 years.
It's hard to believe that is has been 90 days. I didn't start this journey so I could get a girl friend or so I could be more confident. I started it because I had hated myself. I remember two years ago (when I didn't fap) I used to have fun and I also used to enjoy life.
