Age 22 - Healed after 4 years of PIED!

I started nofap in April because I finally realized that what was affecting me was PIED. I was never getting hard, and as a result, I built up an anxiety about initiating sex. II was having it, it was terrible (like I would lose my hard on or orgasm really quick) . I was watching porn everyday, but after nofap, I haven't seen porn for 2 months, but have MO'd twice within those months. These are the results....

Age 21 - Increased Confidence, Motivation & Energy, Addictions gone, No more ADHD meds needed

I have been fapping 2-4 times a day for the last 7 years, I am now 21 y/o. Like your average porn addict I started off with 'soft porn' and over the years my fetishes and interests dramatically changed. I eventually got PIED and couldn't get hard and or O during sex with a girl I was seeing for like 2 weeks.

Aside from my PMO addiction, in the last year I became addicted to ADHD meds and cigarettes, as well as drinking in excess. I used to smoke 10-15 ciggs a day. I Would also double or triple my ADHD meds dosage everyday.

Shit was fucked up! lol

Age 22 - This is the best tool for self-improvement I've come across

I'm 22. In 2013 I decided to 'just try it out'. I watch YBOP and surfed NoFap forums. I liked how I felt and kept going. Whenever I relapsed I noticed a marked difference in my general well being. I have probably PMO'ed 50 times in the past 3 years. This is one of my long streaks however (138 days).

Age 32 - Greater confidence, Better eye contact, Improved health & posture, More energy, Sleep less but don't feel tired

I completed around 550 days so far, I am completely abstinent sexually. I started it on December 2014, and I never heard about nofap movement at the time of start. Just, I was in deep depression because of failure after failure lost multiple jobs and failed in a business.

We need to do a better job about educating kids on porn's negative effects

I just recently watched a YouTube video talking about how Porn "tube sites" really got going around 2006. It made me think about how the first time I was showed porn was around 2008. Even though I didn't really start seeking it until 2009, I realize how I truly had no idea on what effect it would have on me.

Age 19 - Porn-induced ED gone. It's only when I look at my life 90 days ago and compare it to now, do I see the amazing differences

I want to start by saying that stories like this keep me motivated, so I hope it can do the same for one of you. I'm 19 years old, studying at university, and I've been using since I was very young. What started with just a picture of a cute girl in a bikini soon progressed into dark, fucked up, internet-fueled fantasies.

My girlfriend WANTS me for the first time in our relationship

So it happened!!!.. we did it after 3 months! was amazing!!! we made out like never before! such a passion! i thank god for this moment, she said she felt really better and a huge weight of her shoulder cause she wanted me naturally for the  first time in months.. maybe 8 months... i know right!!!..

Age 24 - 200 days - First girlfriend, tremendous strides

I will finally hit the 200 day mark tomorrow. A goal I have been setting for myself for the last 2 years now. I wrote myself a letter about 2 years ago, that I would read once I reach this milestone. I am nervous yet excited at the same time. The struggles has been abundant since the start

Age 26 - PIED: More confident, talkative & social, I feel more love, Smiling all the time, Never intimidated or afraid, Sleep better

TL;DR 26y/o male, tried and failed for 2 years finally at 90 days. The changes are listed and numbered below. Overall feel amazing with still some flatlines and brain fogginess but overall having an amazing time doing it! Don’t feel ready for sex yet but I’m getting there.

Age 30s - VR pushed my addiction over the edge - Sex with wife now multiple times better

I'm in my mid thirties, I used Porn for almost 20 years. I feel very lucky that I didn't grow up with internet porn, hi-def video porn, porn streaming sites and especially VR porn because I think that my addiction would have been worse, or perhaps I would have realized it was an issue earlier, IDK.

Age 27 - Why I've quit porn for good

I’m 27 and PMO addict. I started MO in grade 5 (age 11 i believe). My step-brother age 13, who came to spend summers with us, introduced me to my first playboy magazine that summer. I can’t recall when masturbation became an every night occurrence but i know by age 13 or 14 it was.

Age 25 - Lessons learned from quitting porn

Though it truly is my 90th day on hard mode, and I am proud, and thankful, it has in fact been over a year and a half since I stopped giving myself orgasms with my hand or sheets etc. Now you may ask yourself, did I succeed through the year and half then want to step up to hard mode? Was I giving myself orgasms with some sickly contraption not involving my hands or sheets? Both options would be wrong.

Age 46 - I finally feel like I am getting my life back

I am a tough case, if I can do it, so can you. I have been a porn addict since about 1982. For the last 9 years I have been in SAA and had many relapses. With the help of accountability  software, mostly to get started, yoga, saa, therapy, and determination, I have reached a point of sobriety where I do not crave porn.
