Age 17 - Long story short, I'm 46 days in and my ADHD is gone.

Printer-friendly version

I started nofap to cure my ADHD. I was skeptical at first but then I did some research on Wikipedia. I used to take Strattera and Wellbutrin. Sttratera increases norepinephrine and Wellbutrin increases norepinephrine and dopamine in your brain. (ADHD happens when you have low norepinephrine and dopamine in your prefrontal cortex.)

Then I researched what happens in your brain when you experience an orgasm. Orgasm is basically a dopamine and norepinephrine feast in your brain and nerves. (After an orgasm, increased norepinephrine is detected in your bloodstream.)

I connected the dots and decided to try nofap. After years of PMO, my norepinephrine and dopamine receptors must have been dulled, causing ADHD symptoms. I consulted my psychiatrist and she was skeptical. I decided to give it a try anyway. I quit ADHD meds and started nofap.

The first few days had been absolute hell. My ADHD was on steroids. I couldn't even finish watching a 3-minute YouTube video. I was restless. I couldn't stay in one place for more than a minute. My nose was stuffy and I wasn't living. I was barely existing.

Then after a week the symptoms started to subside.

Long story short, I'm 46 days in and my ADHD is gone. I can finish tasks and this is unheard of in my life. I wish I discovered nofap when I started high school because my GPA is very bad but I am so hyped to build my own life with my newfound focus. In the meantime, I learned to code and made a simple app and it's giving me a few bucks every day in ad revenue. It's really nothing but it's still the first ever achievement in my life and I'm proud of it.

I don't care about getting girls or being alpha or anything. Being free from ADHD alone is worth it. NoFap works. I no longer waste hours browsing useless websites on the Internet. I simply don't want to. I don't even browse Reddit all that much. I have so much time every day.

I was going to write this post when I hit 90 days mark but decided to do it today.

Good luck on your journey, fapstronauts.

I'm 17. I see other benefits like better vision. My mouth is no longer dry. (ADHD meds cause vasoconstriction which makes your mouth and eyes dry.)

No more overeating. No more binge gaming. Better posture. I am less afraid of people's eyes.
