    I wanted to start a thread that would specifically list peoples personal gains from no longer using porn or not fapping anymore. I feel like a thread like this could be used to inspire those who are new or simply want to take on the challenge and reap the benefits. Id like for anyone who comes across this thread whom has personally invested in themselves long enough that have seen or felt any benefits to list them. Share with others your success benefits.

    My number is fairly low (im on day 4) but ive gone as far as day 5 (also a low number, sad I know) and have felt within those few days benefits mentally and physically. Listed below are benefits I personally have felt or seen within my self from the previous time around before relapsing.
    • More aggressive
    • Less lower back problems
    • slightly more energy (I believe more energy wouldve come had I stuck to it)
    • less groggy

    Not feeling like a piece of s**t that is slowly drying in the scorching sun.

    1) More time and better management of it.
    2) More focused on tasks (improved concentration).
    3) Inner peace (no "dark side" that I have to keep hidden from others).
    4) More energy.

    Way more confidence, drive to seek out girls, lots of energy, a slight twinkle in my eye and pupil lightening. It's a awesome feeling.
     
  8. Confidence is a big one, like other in this thread have already mentioned.

    My thought "life" is better. I find myself thinking about more positive things.

    Less anxiety and stress. Better ability to let things slide.

    More productive and friendly at work.

    My sense of humor comes back and with a quicker wit. I find good/funny/charming things to say to those around me with little to no effort. Very naturally.

    More free time (it's amazing how much time is sucked away by the internet, even without porn).

    Better use of that free time; work or play.

    The desire comes back to do things I normally procrastinate about, such as chores (cleaning house, grocerey shopping, oil change for the car, ironing my shirts). This is actually a huge one as it benefits other areas of my life.

    I'll stop typing now, but the point is: SO MANY BENEFITS!

    What a great thread! I'll just be general and say I feel like I'm on my way to reaching my full potential. I am slowly but surely becoming the best version of myself.

    So far, the only benefits of not MO'ing I can observe are:

    - Less waste of time
    - Less feelings of shame
    - Less usage of tissues ;)

  13. - increased self-esteem and confidence
    - increased energy
    - more focus
    - increased mood suprisingly
    - attracted to real girls more so than a screen
    - no time is wasted on PMO

    I guess that's it for now. :D

    Personally I haven't noticed a huge difference in my life after trying to quit pmo. Keep in mind this doesn't mean it's pointless. I know that pornography can ruin families and it really can get in the way of pursuing your goals if it consumes a lot of your life. It doesn't do any favors for me aside from a feeling of euphoria. So that's why I want to stop and the benefits of it are what I mentioned.

    45 Days of No PMO

    I feel "cleaner," more proud of myself, my relationship with my Higher Power is stronger, I don't feel guilty, I feel like I control my destiny, lost weight, feel more stable in mood.... Overall just a better man that's still improving.

    It's only been 4 days but:

    -I feel like a better person
    -Because my desires don't go directly to porn, my interest in women has increased
    -one of my friends told me my voice got deeper
    -I don't feel stronger because i'm not giving into temptation
    -actually getting some stuff done
