I really cannot believe I went from having to masturbate multiple times a day to going 180 days without masturbating once. Before Nofap I was a college dropout planning on going into the military because I had no other options.
It has been a interesting journey, since I have started nofap I have had a lot of bonuses from it and just feel better all round but I will list some of the things nofap has helped me with at the bottom of this post
This is my day 90 and this reports is going to be huge long post with broken English. I warned. I’ve been a long time lurker like 1~2 years in this subreddit. And I feel really great to post this long story.
YBOP Comments: In this study, compulsive masturbators were younger than other ED patients and had more severe erectile dysfunction. It goes without saying that compulsive masturbation in today's young men would be associated with internet porn use. Compulsive masturbation was associated with higher anxiety and depression, but with less phobic anxiety and obsessive compulsive symptoms. Study's Conclusion:
"Compulsive masturbation represents a clinically relevant cause of disability, given the high level of psychological distress reported by subjects with this condition, and the severe impact on quality of life in terms of interpersonal relationships."
I don't post here but I do browse occasionally and thought I would give you my story. I am a 23 year old male who has given up porn. I never fell into the niche/weird fetishes of porn, just a daily user since middle school who grew up with porn.
