    Day 90 Complete.

    I've taken an age to write this because I've found it difficult to express just how life changing these 90 days have been. First and foremost it's probably not the benefit anyone is expecting, but I've been wanting to lose a bit of weight for many, many years. For whatever reason, I haven't had the willpower/energy/whatever to succeed. But at the beginning of my 90 days I was 95.6kg and measured 102cm around the waist. Today I weighed in at 85.0kg and 86cm around the waist. For you Americans, that's just over 23 pounds lost in 13 weeks. For me, I had almost resigned myself to never being able to lose the weight so I am beyond ecstatic.

    This leads into what I noticed as the main benefit of NoFap. Extra energy. For the first couple of weeks, I remember it as being fairly manic energy, almost jittery. To use this energy I ended up getting out and doing a lot more exercise as well as other activities where I may not have done them in past because I was 'too tired'. It was also a way to take the temptation out of my mind. I feel like this extra energy made me feel better overall so when I did something detrimental like eat fast food or not exercise, I noticed it a lot more.

    In terms of the actual no fapping, the first 20 days were very difficult but after that it was progressively easier to the point over the last few weeks, it really hasn't crossed my mind. It feels like I have broken the habit, and i'm also a bit terrified to go back to that lifestyle and lose the benefits! It was about day 45 when I noticed my morning wood returning and happens fairly regularly now. I haven't had the opportunity to test if my PIED has disappeared but I am fairly confident that it has as mine was down to reduced sensitivity due to death grip. I've also had compliments about my skin, thicker hair, deeper voice and overall confidence.

    Going forward, I want to continue no fapping indefinitely. It's a lifestyle I feel I can embrace and save my O for when i'm with a partner.

    Otherwise I will continue to post periodically if any new benefits occur ad if anyone has any questions, feel free to fire away.

    Nice work! I can't wait to hit day 90 and beyond. What was your biggest motivator in keeping you on track? And congratulations on losing the weight! I love how the willpower of NoFap is applicable in so many other areas!

    Hey dude, congrats on your big achievement! I know the feeling of not being able to take action when its necessary. I've been lifting weights for a couple of years, but it's not till I started doing NoFap that I made progress. It really makes a big impact in every area of life. Good luck in the future, keep at it!

    Thanks, and the biggest motivator especially at the beginning was that I didn't think I would be able to have the relationship I want if I continue down the path of porn and fapping. As time went by it shifted to be more that I didn't want to jeopardise the benefits i already had. The way i was thinking is that life on porn was 4/10 with the occasional 10/10 from the dopamine hit of PMO. Life without it is a solid 8/10 consistently, and maybe i might get 11/10 with a partner! But one challenge at a time.

    I can definitely relate. I greatly desire being in a relationship and that has motivated me in the past. Though as I kept relapsing I realised the hold porn and fapping have on me and I can see now how urgently I need to quit! As I'm seeing how much better life is without it, it's helping push me to keep fighting for this better life. Once I get this addiction under control I can start thinking more about being in a relationship, but, as you said, one challenge at a time!
    So happy for you man; I hope you get that 11/10, you deserve it!

    Congrats! How long had you been fapping prior? I am trying to get a sense of when my own PIED will go away, I'm currently very early into my own 90 day hard mode challenge.

    I think I started when I was about 14 so approximately 20 years of PMO. Looking back to when I first had sex at 20 I remember thinking "Is this it?", which was down to reduced sensation from death grip even at that age. Going forward I didn't have problems getting it up but would hardly ever finish through intercourse and often would start to get soft as the sensation was not enough. The only times I did finish that way were after periods of abstaining from PMO.

    Did you have any withdrawals? Like mood swings etc during your journey?

    I didn't have any withdrawals as such, but I did have mood swings. I remember at some points feeling absolutely furious for no apparent reason. I think in a way it was my withdrawal as it was my dopamine addiction being cut off and the mood swings were my emotions 'reawakening' after being suppressed by porn/fapping.
