Age 32 – It’s completely worth it and I wish I had done this years ago

140+ Days Completed

Before I knew about this I was a pathetic addict to porn, after many failed attempts I have made it, this is what I feel now. First: a huge chunk of bad stuff is taken out of your life when you don’t need to get your fix, that’s the best thing. You don’t want it anymore because the brain has been rewired to fully known how toxic it is by comparing the cause and effect of doing it and not doing it.

Second: for me it opened the doors to the rest of my life; if you can understand that, don’t know if anyone feels the same, like I was stuck and now I can move on.

Third: it helps you being honest with yourself and for me it was facing my problems head on, after I completed the 90 days I started psychotherapy treatment to fix my brain and emotions even more because I have more issues.

Super powers: in that point I don’t feel the need to put this too much because you feel like a different person after you don’t PMO anymore, you get more confidence in my case because you don’t carry the shame and have obtained discipline in your life

Conclusion: its completely worth it and I wish I had done this years ago, it’s very healthy for the body and mind, glad to be part of this.

Age 29 – Right now, I feel more confident and relaxed than I have ever felt in the last 15 years.

Today is my 45th straight day without PMO! While I can’t say that getting to 45 days has eliminated all of the problems in my life (Spoiler Alert for those of you just getting started: Ditching porn and masturbation will NOT get rid of every issue that you are dealing with…), I can definitively say that I have seen a lot of progress in many different areas. Tonight, I want to share a few of the really positive changes that I have experienced,

as well as some of the things that (I think) have helped me (finally) get to Day 45. Positive changes…

1. Right now, I feel more confident and relaxed than I have ever felt in the last 15 years. Normally, I have a tendency to go from “normal” to “overwhelmed” very quickly, both at work and in social situations. In the last few weeks, however, I have felt very poised and in control, even when I’m working with a tight deadline or meeting totally new people.

2. I also feel much more motivated to make other positive changes in my life. Since dropping PMO, I have been much more disciplined not just with eating and exercise, but also with hobbies and personal interests. (In the past, I almost never made it past a few days with any such commitments.) Now that I’m not edging for an hour every night, I have a lot more time to read, for example, which has become a consistent source of pleasure in my life.

3. It sounds unscientific, but I really think that 45 days without PMO has made me look better—both to myself and other people. In recent years, I think I have often come across (physically) as “tired” or “flat.” When I look in the mirror now, however, I see a liveliness and an energy that I have not seen in myself for a very long time.

How I got to Day 45…

1. For me, developing bedtime ROUTINES has been a huge help. I used to masturbate before going to bed almost every night. Now, I take a shower, read about personal development for 15-30 minutes (YBOP, Designing Your Life, Changing for Good…etc…), and then write 1-2 sentences about my day in a small journal that I keep. Sticking to this routine every night has really reduced temptations for me.

2. In that small journal, I keep track of my streak. For some psychological reason, it was really intimidating for me, say, on Day 3, to know that I was a full EIGHTY SEVEN days away from reaching my NoFap goal. In order to overcome this, I decided to track my progress in mini-streaks of five days. During the course of the day, I try to think about my mini-streak rather than my longer streak. (For example, on Day 6, I told myself that I was on “Day 1” and that I only had 4 days left to finish my goal, as opposed to telling myself that I was on Day 6 with 84 days left to go.) This trick, which is very similar to distance runners focusing on a “finish line” 20 yards away (and then another…and then another…until reaching the real finish line), has been super helpful.

3. Masturbation for me used to be a solution for boredom. To combat my tendency to give in to temptation when I had “nothing better to do”, I have tried to constantly surround myself with alternative things to do at home. For me, that mostly means good books in the living room and healthy recipes (and ingredients) in the kitchen. Now that I am used to reading or cooking when bored, it feels natural to me.

Thanks, NoFap, for the support and the knowledge!

Age 38 – PIED: Now I feel all my senses. I get very turned on just by touch alone. Nocturnal erections for first time in life.

It keeps getting better and better I haven’t been here for a while because I was on holiday. The first 6 months, there was not much progress. Now I feel all my senses. I get very turned on just by touch alone. I moan a lot during foreplay. If a girl touches me just a little bit, I get very turned on. Sometimes it’s embarrassing how loud I moan. I can’t help myself haha

I went to see my GF in Shanghi and we made love 2 times a day. The first 3 times, I couldn’t get hard because I was nervous. After the first 3 times, I kept getting hard. I was hard, almost instantly.

At night and during sleep, I get hard erections. This has never happened much before but now it’s hard on a regular basis. I feel very happy and excited about my results. I don’t feel I’m fully erect while sleeping but I think that will happen in the next year or so. It’s like I’m very hard but the penis is not big and hasn’t gone to its full potential

I don’t feel I’m completely healed. It might take another year or so. Yesterday I was extremely horny. I still feel horny at night even though I haven’t PMed for over a year. I don’t think its porn urges, I think its normal hornyness

I documented my journal, you’re welcome to take a look. The journal has really helped me to understand what my triggers are for P and M. It helps me to understand myself at a very detailed level.

Not watching porn and masturbating is one of the best things I have ever done. I cannot wait and see what my progress is like, in another half a year. I never knew I would get this far. I’m very happy with my progress I hope in the future, I get better and better.

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.

And you know what? Every day of that six years I was perfectly capable of quiting. Any second I could have pulled the plug. And guess what? So can you. Stop making excuses. Stop running from discomfort. Stop rationalizing and acting like you have a normal problem and that youre just a paladin fighting the porn industry because you’re not, you’re a deformed broken addict. THATS why you’re here.

That’s why your friends can watch porn every week and they’re fine. Porn doesn’t immediately ruin your brain on first consumption any more than alcohol makes you an alcoholic after the first drink. We have a personality flaw. We have no discipline. We never make ourself do the hard thing. We run from discomfort and pain and that is why we are here. Unless you learn to embrace it you will never quit this addiction. There is no other way.

You are capable of quitting at this exact moment. Yes, each and every one of you. If the stakes are high enough you’ll quit. If Bill Gates showed up to your house and offered you 10,000,000.00$ to get 90 days first try every single one of you would quit in a heartbeat. You would do whatever it took. You would still get urges, but you would smile to yourself as you ignored them and imagined what color your Lamborghini was going to be.

You have the last say over every urge, period. No urge can control you unless you let it. If I put a gun to your head and said “don’t fap ” during your next urge you wouldn’t do it. YOU ARE CAPABLE. It has to matter enough to you.

This is my farewell and thank you to this sub, I will probably check in a couple times a year but at this point this sub is holding me back more than pushing me forward. I wish each and every one of you the best of luck. I was a different man 90 days ago living a different life. I would rather die than return to that kind of living forever.

Decide for yourself if you are going to continue logging on to reset your badge every 1-5 days or if you are going to take control of your life, embrace the pain as healing, and take your life back from yourself. If this post motivated one person to quit like a similar post motivated me to quit I will sleep soundly for a year.

45-90 were nice in that they weren’t as bad as 1-45, but I’d like to add contrary to what I expected the “benefits” and my happiness didn’t constantly increase in a linear manner. I had some great days and some aweful days that felt like day 7. Most important thing is to not give up. It DOES get better. Much much much better.

Hard mode until day 50, then I was smooth enough to land a girlfriend and there was no reason not to sleep with her.

Your new energy bleeds through everything about you, your smile, your eyes, the way you move, the way you talk, the way you analyze a room, and you attract everyone, males and females alike.

I think one of the biggest faults to this place is the fact that almost everyone who successfully defeats this addiction will outgrow the subreddit and leave, creating an echo chamber of addicts helping make excuses and rationalizing for each other. A chamber of “feel-good” posts and “feel good in the moment motivation” but no ACTION. The point of all of that is for the people who say “I literally can’t quit.”

I was showing them that yes, you can, you just won’t. That little realization made a big difference to me and looks like it did to a lot of others as well.

I feel as if I have a moral responsibility to come back and help others escape just like others helped me.

Age 23 (61 Days Without PMO)

This is the first time I’ve written in the forum and I’m pleased to do it because I’ve been able to spend 61 days without PMO and 115 days without P. I’m from Argentina and my English is not the best but I do what I can:’). Anyway, I’ll tell you about my experience. I started leaving Porn 115 days ago, it cost me a lot, I used to masturbate several times a day.

I made the decision to start the reboot because I moved away from true sexual intercourse, I was afraid to fail (sometimes I hadn’t had an erection). And I even thought I had changes in my sexuality. All this led me to states of depression and anxiety.

During the reboot, in the first few days I was eager to masturbate, then around 25-30 days the wet dreams began. I still have them once in a while. After 35 days the blue balls began. Right now my balls hurt haha.

As for the benefits, the clearest thing I could feel is that it excites me more easily, I feel more attracted to women and I feel more confident. Besides, I’m not all day thinking about masturbating or having sex.
I haven’t had sex with a girl yet, but I’m not terrified of the idea, but I’m really looking forward to having a date.

Anyway, this is my summary, maybe some things are missing, but I know that I’m on the right track, I had many of the signs as I told you, so let’s go forward.

Greetings comrades and do not let it decay!

Age 37 I don’t recognize myself

My apartment is clean My sink is empty My laundry is cleaned/folded/put away. I’m waking up early I’m going to the gym I’m taking a yoga class I’m reading books I’m writing music I’m doing photography. I don’t feel depressed My anxiety is much more manageable Video games are losing their appeal

I have clarity and focus I look forward to meeting people and seeing friends

There are so many changes happening to me right now and they all started snowballing after one simple change. I decided to stop touching my ding dong.

NoFap was just the beginning for me. The less time I spent taking the easy route to temporarily make myself feel better, the more I had to fill that time with other things.

I don’t really have a breaking moment where everything changed. Kinda like losing weight – you look at yourself in the mirror every day and don’t see that much has changed but when you look at an old picture you look completely different. Hope that helps

I’m 37. This is probably the 4th time in my life to go for longer than 30 days since the age of 12.

I’ve been diagnosed with GAD/ADHD/Depression before. I have had pretty bad social anxiety since I can remember. Previously, when I had tried to stop, I remember feeling better but never made the connection
until I found the NoFap community.

Age 21

I’ve been wanting to quit porn for about 2 years and had small streaks like 4-5 days but I’m just now getting serious about it. I’m much more sociable and I attract more women when I’m not jerking off to pixels. It really is a different lifestyle.

I’m 21. The benefits I’ve noticed is that women find me much more attractive probably because I am making eye contact, I am better at saying the right thing, I’m more energetic, and I also want to sleep with them and I think they can tell haha. I’ve been having really good luck with girls lately. I have been meeting a ton of people and giving good impressions.

I am currently 22 days pornfree (my longest streak so far) and 7 days nofap. Last night a girl took me home with her that I’ve been talking to for about two weeks. We had sex and I was able to finish with no problem. Normally, I’m not able to finish with a girl so this is big for me because I finished within about 10 minutes which is ideal for most girls I’ve been with. I wanted to make this post for the guys who are also struggling with this problem. If you also suffer from PIED here are some tips:

  1. Give yourself atleast 7 days of nofap. I think this is the biggest factor.
  2. Pornfree has kept my mind clearer and made this girl look like a goddess. Pornfree works, stick with it.
  3. This one may just be me, but after knowing a girl for a couple of weeks I am much more comfortable around her which makes me less anxious and more relaxed while having intercourse helping me achieve O easier

Nonetheless, this is an update and encouragement post for anyone else who struggled with this as well. Keep those streaks up!

I don’t know if anyone else has felt this but I used to get sad for no particular reason when I met or saw a really attractive girl. At the time, I thought that was happening because I was already accepting that this girl wouldn’t want me as a partner, whether if she asks for it or not. I guess I was right about that.

I really was thinking if girls would want me as a partner without even knowing it, even if she is a random attractive person passing down the street.

After leaving porn for real not only I felt the sense of freedom (as a result of leaving an addiction), I also realized that relationships aren’t competitions, and I should see girls as who they are, regardless of their appearance, rather than seeing as potential partners. Now I even feel pumped up to start a conversation sometimes when I see someone attractive!

I also realized that I don’t feel a weird kind of pressure everytime I go outside. Walking in a good posture, asking for directions etc. feel far more easier now. I suppose the self discpline really makes you to respect yourself more and boosts your confidence.

It’s heavily based on hormones I think so it’s hard to know without trying it. If you are new to nofap I highly suggest you trying it. It’s not that hard once you are really determined and it really pays off. If you are already a part of community, thank you for helping me fight with an addiction 😀

Age 36 (90 days)

I learned about No Fap roughly five years ago. I think two years earlier I started to realize that I might have a problem with PMO. I tried to moderate my behaviour, but I soon realized that it was not possible in the long run. I gave up my internet connection at home. I gave up my Smartphone.

I quickly realized that going without masturbation for a long time was actually quite hard for me. But what really surprised was that even though I had cut myself off from the internet, I still would occasionally find ways to watch some porn. That was when I realized that I am really addicted to porn.

Not having an internet connection really helped to severly reduce my use of porn over the last couple of years. But after some time I realized that I still had not even managed to go 90 days without porn even though I did not even have a private access to the internet. I thought at least that way it should be easy to let go of porn. Well, it wasn’t.

Even without having easy access to online porn this wasn’t easy for me. It’s probably the first time in 15 years that I have gone 90 days straight without porn. But I did it, and I am glad.

I am at 39 days at No Fap, and my overall outlook in life has never been better. Never been better in over twenty years. I feel like I am finally beginning to really awake from a really bad dream. I have experienced the typical improvements:

  • My mind became much more clear.
  • My memory got better.
  • My thinking is sharper.
  • Speaking in an eloquent manner became effortless.
  • I became much more emotional.
  • Much more compassionate.
  • People react much more positive to me in general.
  • I had several occasions, where women reacted in a strangely positive way to me.
  • But definitely the best improvement is that I am much more calm and at peace now.

And I am definitely certain that this is the right way to go. Well, I still have a long journey ahead of me. I am working and fighting towards my 90 days of No Fap, and I am aiming for liberating myself from PMO totally for the rest of my life.

Thanks to all of you who are seriously and honestly keep working and fighting to liberate yourself from PMO! And my deepest gratitude to all the pioneers of No Fap and Pornfree! Those guys in the early days who fought their way through reboots, despite all the doubts and all the ridicule, paving the way for everybody who followed!

I had a lot of doubt myself in the beginning. But I kept at it. And now, after five years, my efforts are finally beginning to blossom.

My best wishes to all of you!

I’m 36 years old.

Age 17

I’m 17 M, been 6 months clean of porn and gave up completely on videogames 2 and a half months ago. Before finding NoFap on the month of October of 2016, I was basically a living waste: always feeling depressed, failing at school, failing with relationships… failing at life. My only life objective back then was getting a gaming PC. Now imagine the emptiness I felt when I got one…

And here’s the main things I learned in 16 months of fighting my 2 addictions:

The moment you remove your escapism habits you’re going to be exposed to reality 24/7, and for this reason you will have to change your life in order to be enjoyable without said escapist habits. It’s going to be hard, but you have to insist or else you can expect to fall back to the arms of your addictions.

Happiness won’t magically arrive once you pass a certain number of days. It might be true that life becomes more stable and enjoyable after you start to see progress with your recovery, but what’s the point of having those horrible clouds off your head, if you’re just going to stand around not doing anything that contributes to your happiness?

Do this for yourself and build self-compassion. If you’re clearing a bad habit in order to get someone or to seek someone’s validation, the moment they leave, you feel like all the effort was in vain, and you got back to your old habits. Building self-compassion is also very important. People with self-respect and self-love don’t go around doing things that they know will harm them. Keep in mind that you’re just human, and you make mistakes just like everyone else. The moment you find yourself with enough self-love and feel that the others’ validation comes second, you’ll be taking a huge step not just in fighting your addictions, as well as growing as a person. This is so far one of, if not, the most most powerful concept I’ve learned in these forums. I even believe this was the one that helped me turn the situation around and come this far. Sadly is something many people here haven’t realized that is hindering their recovery. About this you can check a recent post from u/MightyAslan in here.

Look for the patterns of behauviours that drive you towards your addictions (traumas, mental illness, triggers). It’s even possible that your addictions can be a symptom from a psychological disorder, and who knows if that said disorder is the reason your life is shit. Plus you get extra information to discuss with your therapist, if you have one, further helping you get a grip over your addiction.

So that raps it up for my advice post, I’m sorry for all the grammar errors and rambling, I am in a rush. Wish the best of luck in your recovery. Stay strong, stay committed

Female – Nofap has taught me patience, happiness, understanding, satisfaction, effort, sociality and concentration, and that my body and mind are one

265 Days

265 official days behind me and 100 far from a year of no pmo. Healthy streak. Why would I be quitting? When I first started this I had no other goals to stay clean for a very long time, probably forever until I’d get a partner. Porn was shit and masturbating worthless, draining and life-worsening.

I wouldn’t care to take a step forward. Life was dull, that all, so on.

At start I replaced useless times with reading instead which improved my versatility.

After 2 months of nofap I started training which has lasted persistently to this day.

After 3 I started a new hobby.

After 4 I got my childhood gift for Christmas, the reason being my persistence for such a thing. I wouldn’t had that exact type of spunk if not been NoFap. Finally got it, drowning myself in it every week to today.

At probably 5 or 6 months I overcame my anxieties five times better than before, and it was rewarding, soul feeding, cleansing and achieving. My mood became better after that. Got a bit more confidence and I was finally happier.

At the boring times from those days on I wrote; it’s a thing I’ll forever love. The trigger to that had probably also been the fact that I was in better shape then. And then, one thing I remember with tears, accidentally I hit my toe to a drawer and it cracked back into place after a really long time. But as the months went on I had more and more confidence and I started to be more outgoing, and my music taste expanded to understand something as sensual as classical music and enjoy it.

Of course there were boulders, but I can’t look back into smashed obstacles no more. I just don’t see them.

Nofap has taught me patience, happiness, understanding, satisfaction, effort, sociality and concentration, and that my body and mind are one and that I truly can do anything if I want it. And oh, do I.

[To demonstrate the last one: my crush (actually I’ve been in such emotional hormones throughout last month’s I find her very much more) literally writhed against me today (and that’s why I’m quitting, keep reading). Would it make a rookie insane? What if she’d get her thigh on the entirety of your arm? Her hind in front of you? For long enough time? My cheekbones just stung painful as hell and more. But I just thought: It’s all going to be ok. (Counting out the times I thought about not going to the bathroom) That’s something you can’t learn from a book.]

Back to the question: Why quit nofap?

I feel like the time has come when I’ll look at what’ll I want to do with my life from this point on, how will I be handling sexuality, because I trust myself and my mental capacity on a level that’ll challenge myself, and I sort of want that in my life. Like an intelligent person needs to think, and an athlete needs excercise, so will a spunky person need something to have their spunk towards. I want to feel myself free but now tame in the modern world.

I hope I never go back.

As a failured mood raiser for this dramatic post: Although I’d relapse after my goal of 365 days, I’d still be an astronaut: I’d get shot into space.

Cheers, community, and keep pushing!

As a P.S, I’m a female and I understand men’s struggles. If you feel embarrassed about what might happen just think about how women reveal themselves so openly and you (probably) look. You’ll force yourself through the process.

I have achieved “God status”!

I started this journey after hearing about no fap through a friend. Took it upon myself to commit to it and let me tell you my life has changed for the better. I no longer even think about PMO anymore! Being a former college athlete working out was a huge part of my life, today I am in better shape and leaner than I ever was during my playing days.

Yes, everyone the female attraction is 100% a real thing but that is not a reason to start this journey.

The new and improved mental clarity and concentration that you achieve from no fap is why I continued and will continue on this journey.

Relationships with my family have greatly improved, and I was even blessed to be traveling for work for the next month and a half, all expenses paid!!!

I feel as if the world is finally starting to come around and all my hard work is finally starting to pay off! There are many more amazing benefits I can share! This is just the start to something amazing!!!

101 days down, 264 more to go!! Remember anything is possible if you put your mind to it!!!

Age 19

I don’t know about the superpowers that everyone seems to have, but what’s definitely improved in the previous 42 days that I’ve been without PMO, is my skin. Red marks on my face are fading and I haven’t got new pimples in days. Not sure if it’s caused by nofap or is it just a coincidence but the difference between day zero and today is remarkable.

This is such a confidence booster and motivates me not to beat my meat for a few seconds of pleasure.

Thus anyone who is struggling with acne or not so good skin, nofap is absolutely worth trying. Just remember the benefits won’t come overnigt, so be patient. I started to see change after month or so.

Have a nice Sunday motherfuckers.

I’d say nofap is just one piece of this puzzle. Apparently for me it was the last one needed tho. Nofap won’t do wonders alone and like you said diet plays a huge role here too. Third big factor for me is getting enough sleep.

I’m 19 and current streak isn’t my first. A year ago I was into this nofap culture, having +50 day streaks but for some reason started fapping again. During those streaks noticed same improvements in skin condition  tho.

Age 40

PMO since I was 20 (video, magazines, erotic images, etc), since 31 [y/o] it was high-speed internet P, it changed with periods when I lived with women and had regular sex (sometimes with problems like DE, but I didn’t understand why). When I was 38-39 I spent a lot of time alone and did a lot of PMO out of boredom. Now I am 40. Last year I understood where the roots of problem were – but only when I hit the bottom:

I had sex with a nice girl, and I can’t get O, and then my dick fainted. She left me and never came back. It was a disaster. I understood that it was because of P, and I decided to quit. It was 22 of September 2017. It ruined my life and my health for a long time, and thank God I stopped it.

Then I found rebootnation and started the journal here. The stories and articles from this site were very useful. I gone through flatline and periods of sadness, and even relapsed when I listed dating sites. But I knew the only important thing: NEVER RETURN TO PORN, and everything is going to be OK.

In November I felt much better, I tried relationships with a girl, and felt excitement being around her, but she kept distance and we didn’t make love. In the end of January 2018 I met another girl, and on 8 of February we had sex. We also had sex 9, 10, 11 of February, and today, 12 of February we are going to make sex again. Moreover, the dating sites are not a problem for me anymore.

That’s what I want to say to every guy who comes here: Remember, we were born in this world not to yank our penises alone in the dark solitude. We were born to love beautiful women, kiss them, caress them, and make sex with them. BE A MAN, AND BE PROUD OF IT. Never return to PM, this is a curse of modern mankind.

Never think you cannot do this. Several months is not a long term to be healed. Be strong, there are a lot of other pleasures in this life – art, food, sport, books, movies, etc. One sex with a girl is surely much better than hundred sessions of PMO. Respect yourself, never touch that shit again.

Thanks for everybody who keep this site working, and to all guys who supported me here. Good luck to everybody and greetings from Russia.

Age 16 (40+ days)

I (16M) have never had a girlfriend before. Due to constant fapping and porn binging, I never gave any girl a second thought after meeting or talking to them. Through abstinence is when I realized everything that I was missing in life. Yesterday I asked a girl if she would like to be my girlfriend, and this is the first time any girl has ever said yes to me.

Needless to say I’m very happy about this and I hope that you guys can use this as motivation to overcome the social anxiety that you may feel at the moment. Keep pushing forward!

We had mutual friends so I met her that way. We got very close in the span of a couple of months and I just went for it. When I did it the only thing I had in my mind is “The worst thing that could happen is that she says no”

I’m glad I found NoFap when I did 🙂 The feeling of just existing and not really LIVING is what caused me to try NoFap. I always wondered why I never attracted anyone and it was because I lacked confidence in myself  nd I was too busy fapping and watching porn to pay attention to anything else. After 40 days I’ve noticed a dramatic increase in confidence, brain fog gone, and my attention span increased.

Age 44 (90 days)

I wish I could tell my friends and family. Instead I want to celebrate here because I know I can share it here and here only. Today I finally reached my goal of 90 days. What started as a test, with 10 days. During those 10, read up on a lot of testimonies here on this website from people like you. I realized that 10 days was not enough. Went on to 30 days and to be fair, that was the hardest stretch.

After the 30 days, I was thinking, if I can do 30 days, I have to do 90 days! When I started the 10 days challenge, I never thought I would get to this point! Still can’t believe it!

If I can do it, SO CAN YOU! I do firmly believe you become a better person. Stay focused because it is worth it. In all that time, I have learned a lot about myself. I hope it will do the same for you.

Thanks to the NoFAP community, I know what damage P is doing to my self esteem, my (sexual) health and my desire to chase women. I will not go back to P. I know I want to go back, but I can’t allow it to happen. I can’t go back to compulsive MO either. There are other ways of releasing that energy: do awesome things!

Age 23 (90 days!)

Hi everyone! I have hit 90 days, and I thought I would share with all of you who are on your journey, so that it might help you in some way :)

I could write lots and lots on this, but I might break it down into general stages of how I felt throughout the journey.

1. Facing your Fear

For me, porn was a way I could escape. Sometimes life was difficult for me, or I didn’t feel loved, so I wanted to escape to a place which would comfort me and make me feel loved. As soon as I stopped PMO I had to face my fears more directly. Each time I felt scared, I got such a strong urge to use porn, but using the management strategies (the nofap app, validating myself, comforting myself etc.) I kept it just under control.

This was a really difficult stage, but I found taking it moment by moment really useful.

2. What Now? Trying to Find Myself

Now that I was beginning to be able to manage my fears and emotions a bit better, there was a bit of a gap within myself. I tried filling this in many ways. For me this was mostly socialising every night, meeting new people, going to the gym, studying languages, but I also tried other things like a bit of drinking. Some of these were not so good for me, some of these were too much in excess that my life was getting a bit out of control. I was tired because I went out too late and couldn’t function during the day, and didn’t really have any ‘me time’ because I realised I didn’t really know what ‘me’ was.

After time (these things take time), and learning to distinguish why I was doing certain activities made me be able to learn what was good for me, and what I enjoyed. Some things I was doing because I wanted others to approve of me, and other things I just used to escape. The important thing is to learn to listen to your emotions and let that guide you on what you should keep in your life and what you shouldn’t.

3. Starting to Feel Like a Human Again and not a Person with Problems

I now started finding time for myself, found things that I enjoyed and did things in moderation. However, I still felt like a victim. A person with problems. A broken machine that needed repair. This made me feel terrible and I always felt like a self improvement project working towards some ‘future’ instead of enjoying now. But through doing the things previously, I started to feel happier with who I was. I was doing things true to me, and my mindset got to the point where I could start believing I wasn’t a person with problems. I was a person, and a really good one at that.

4. Relationship Stuff

Throughout me exploring myself and what I liked during that time, I met lots of wonderful people, including girls. I now notice I appreciate qualities such as kindness, caring and emotional understanding a lot more than I used to. Looks and expectations from porn are starting to fade out (but haven’t yet completely). I personally still feel not completely ready for relationships at this stage. Many of the effects of porn have been reduced dramatically, but I think some are still there. I think someone being ‘ready’ really depends on the person and how they feel with themselves.

All in all, stopping porn has allowed me to properly face my problems and fears instead of running away from them. This has allowed me to really start being in control of my journey for the first time in my life, instead of paddling in the water just trying to stay afloat. Porn screws with your mind, like your expectations and your self esteem, and only time away from it can really help you to start repairing.

Sorry for the long post, but best of luck to you all and you all deserve to be in control of your path and be the best and happier you.

90 days porn free

I learned about No Fap roughly five years ago. I think two years earlier I started to realize that I might have a problem with PMO. I tried to moderate my behaviour, but I soon realized that it was not possible in the long run.

  • I gave up my internet connection at home.
  • I gave up my smartphone.

I quickly realized that going without masturbation for a long time was actually quite hard for me. But what really surprised was that even though I had cut myself off from the internet, I still would occasionally find ways to watch some porn. That was when I realized that I am really addicted to porn.

Not having an internet connection really helped to severly reduce my use of porn over the last couple of years. But after some time I realized that I still had not even managed to go 90 days without porn even though I did not even have a private access to the internet. I thought at least that way it should be easy to let go of porn.

Well, it wasn’t.

Even without having easy access to online porn this wasn’t easy for me.It’s probably the first time in 15 years, that I have gone 90 days straight without porn.

But I did it, and I am glad.

I am at 39 days at No Fap, and my overall outlook in life has never been better.Never been better in over twenty years.I feel like I am finally beginning to really awake from a really bad dream.

I have experienced the typical improvements:

  • My mind became much more clear.
  • My memory got better.
  • My thinking is sharper.
  • Speaking in an eloquent manner became effortless.
  • I became much more emotional.
  • Much more compassionate.
  • People react much more positive to me in general.
  • I had several occasions, where women reacted in a strangely positive way to me.
  • But definitely the best improvement is that I am much more calm and at peace now.

And I am definitely certain that this is the right way to go.

Well, I still have a long journey ahead of me. I am working and fighting towards my 90 days of No Fap, and I am aiming for liberating myself from PMO totally for the rest of my life.

Thanks to all of you who are seriously and honestly keep working and fighting to liberate yourself from PMO!

And my deepest gratitude to all the pioneers of No Fap and Pornfree! Those guys in the early days who fought their way through reboots, despite all the doubts and all the ridicule, paving the way for everybody who followed!

I had a lot of doubt myself in the beginning. But I kept at it. And now, after five years, my efforts are finally beginning to blossom.

My best wishes to all of you!
