    I'm already nearing the halfway point in my 90 day commitment and now seems like a good time to review results so far.
    • I haven't noticed much change in my general demeanor, though I might have a little bit more confidence and less anxiety in social situations
    • I've had moderate to occasionally severe acne on and off my face and shoulders since 2009. Now my face has been almost entirely clear except for one pimple that went away a few days ago. And shoulders take a long time to heal but I don't see any new issues there.
    • About once every week and a half on this journey, there'd be a day where my scrotum ached or had sensitivity, but it always went away within a few hours
    • Wet dreams happened twice in the first few weeks, and there was one this past week which I think was from mental slipping rather than physiology
    • Still not the superman, but with regards to this journey, I can definitely say almost every one of the first 30 days was way harder after that first 30. So keep it up brothers, and feel free to post your own results here too

    Wow! the acne cleared up just from nofap! and they are always trying to sell us all that proactive face gels.

    Good work, brother! I have definitely had wet dreams if I think about sexual things while I am drifting off to sleep. Best to meditate before bed or something.

    The physical ache in the groin area happens for me a lot too in the higher days. May get more common as you get up to 60 and 70 days. Buut lifting weights, cardio, and other vigorous exercise is good at shifting the energy around the body. I find the physical aches comes from being to sedentary/stagnant.

    that's amazing progress dude.
    i hope to get there myself, so far I've found the first couple of weeks to be a little tough but I'm staying real strong and have already been feeling better.
    Keep us updated on your journey!

    How does NoFap fix acne?

    It looks like there aren't any good studies on the relationship. For one thing, it's hard to find a control group because nearly all young males are doing PMO, present company excluded. But people hypothesis that testosterone jumps from an MO might cause acne. I don't know one way or the other, but I'll keep y'all posted whether I stay clear or have another breakout over the coming weeks.

    What you wanna do there is focus on removing dead skin and keeping the rest happy and healthy.
    So when you wake up and before bed, rinse junk off your face, use a towel to exfoliate and dry, then apply moisturizing lotion. Lotion is not just for girls!
