I was never addicted to porn or fapping, however I think it greatly reduced my motivation to seek out real relationships with actual women. I hit a low spot about 90 days ago and decided to try for 90 days on nofap.
Hey guys and gals (I know we're out there too). I just want to say how much I love this subreddit. [TRIGGER WARNING] I used to be a webcam model. It was really fun at first, I won't lie. Having people in a trance like that can be very satisfying. Or so I thought anyway.
I am a 20 yo European dude, 3rd year at university. This is my NoFap story, which started 9 months ago. Story 11 months ago I was lost. I started questioning my life and life in general, went searching for meaning in life and why my life was the way it was. I felt like something was missing in my life but did not really know what.
For me NoFap was life changing experience. I was shy and easily embarrassed because I used to sit in my home on computer watching porn and masturbating and NoFap gave my energy and motivation to change my life. I started to going out more, hanging out with friends, started working out, today I'm going on my first MMA workout with my friend and I'm excited about it :D
I found out I had porn induced erectile dysfunction - literally last year when I couldn't perform with a beautiful woman. I started my reboot July of 2015 and I can say I have been free from porn for a year now. It was tough but worth it at the end.
I started my journey back in late November 2015 and am male 24yrs of age. I started seeing this girl 2 weeks before I left for studies in Australia, not ideal I know, but we felt we had some chemistry so we kept in touch.
As NoFap grows, I see a lot of newcomers posting questions in the new section, many of which go unanswered; and many questions that are answered hundreds of times over.

Finally after years of trying I have completed 125 days of NoFap hard mode. I am very proud of myself since i haven't even edged once during these 125 days. It has been a tough journey but my erectile dysfunction is gone.
90 days free of PMO. Whew, when i first started NoFap this time-frame seemed so far away, it pained me to even to commit to 7 days free. You've seen posts talking about the benefits of being free of porn, some with hyperbole and some exaggeration. Those benefits have been true for me.
Finally after years of trying I have completed 125 days of NoFap hard mode. I am very proud of myself since I haven't even edged once during these 125 days. It has been a tough journey but my erectile dysfunction is gone.
About ten months ago I made the decision to pursue the NoFap challenge on Hard Mode for three months (or 90 days, for a nice round number) and now I fulfill this goal, having struggled for years to combat PMO.
