Age 26 - ED, PE, shrinkage: I have a girlfriend now and I've been having lots of sex with her with no issues

Just wanted to come back here and write something someone might find encouraging since I was in this same boat. To start off I wanna make it clear that I was suffering from heavy ED last year, I experienced everything from anxiety attacks, shrinkage, semen leakage.

Age 21 - PIED - Long flatline, but I made it - most amazing sex ever

Last September I broke up with the girl I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with after finding out she was cheating on me. I was with her for just over four years, she was my first love.

Age 15 - Feeling more natural and less awkward around people

I have been struggling with PMO for a few years now, and today, I hit my three-month mark. There have been many bumps along the way. Towards the end of February, I felt great and hardly got any urges.

Age 18 - Great year on NoFap, improved confidence-->attractive girlfriend

It was a year ago around this time when I had ceased watching porn and masturbating. It wasn't my initial intention, but after watching very informative videos and doing research I decided to commit! I knew about NoFap but didn't really pay attention to it until after I had stopped.

Greater confidence, Keeping eye contact is way easier, Brain fog gone, I've never been more determined, I'm so ready to live life every day

Just decided my life needed some serious change and thought this would be a great way to start. Today marks day 63! One quick story about how far I've come. I'm very aware of the people around me, and I used to care a lot about what people were potentially thinking about me.

Age 36 - PIED: My success story - this is scary but it WILL get better

I'm happy to say that I'm really feeling now that I'm getting back to normal from a battle with PIED which has lasted for about two years. This has been an incredibly tough road. If you stick with it you will get better, I'm writing this to help anyone else out there who may be in the middle of what I was going through.

I am completely sure that NoFap helps in many aspects of your life, but the increase of confidence is just crazy.

So I have been lurking on NoFap for about a year and after 80 days of not masturbating I have decided to make a post about the positive things that happened to me while on NoFap. The increase of confidence is just crazy. It's the only thing I can be 100% sure has been made possible by NoFap.
