Video - 250 Days of "Effortless" NoFap

 

Age 16, lost weight, view of women changed, admitted my crush

I'm a 16 years old boy. I started masturbating when I was 11, and watching porn when I was 12. At some point it came to the point where I'd masturbate about 14 times a week, and very rarely did I masturbate without porn. Almost every time I masturbated was with pornography. I see pornography as worse than just masturbating.

Age 26 - Manage this, and you have to power to manage life

I am 26. Used to masturbate once a day but I never considered myself addicted to it. I started because I wanted to challenge my willpower and my addictive personality. Many positive changes happened to my life in the last year, but it’s hard to point out which one was 100% because of NoFap. Certainly my sex drive is up, and I mean the healthy sex drive. The one that makes you wish to talk to a girl on an elevator

I can actually enjoy sex with my SO now

For me PMO was causing relationship issues (now fixed!!) And perhaps just as exciting is that I don't have to tense every fibre in my body to climax. Yeah so just an observation / advice for those considering NoFap. Going Pornfree (for me) has led to a much reduced urge to fap - I still do it now and then, but at a much healthier frequency.

Age 25 - A fun night dancing with lots of beautiful women!

I am 25. I was always socially anxious, and a really good relationship had ended partly because I was always tired, irritable, and I lacked desire for my partner. Now I am never tired, socially confident, and only  irritable occasionally and in a way that makes me more productive. After having been on NoFap streaks on-and-off for about a year, this streak is the first in which I've cleared the one-month mark.

6 years! My new energy bleeds through everything about me

Almost 110 days. I feel like a changed man. My social skills are god-tier. I’m happy to wake up every morning. I find myself just smiling and enjoying life like I did when I was a little kid. I have a girlfriend. 6 years. 6 long years of my young developing life I spent trying to quit. I’ve been here since middle school. The years I spent alone, depressed, hiding in front of a video game screen, angry and upset after every social outing because it made me feel like shit.
