    Day 90


    Today marks my 90th day of nofap! Before I dive deep into my story I want to thank this entire forum for being such a great resource to embark on this incredible journey.


    The Preamble


    I started PMO when I was 12 and continued for 13 years. At my height, I PMO’d everyday and masterbated to fantasies of girls in my high school. I was a good looking guy who excelled at athletics and theater production. But I became socially awkward and had a very hard time with girls.


    I went to college and my PMO addiction greatly started to diminish but I could never quit. Talking to girls because much easier and I had some hookups but the social anxiety, depression, brain fog would come and go. Some days I felt like that super smooth guy who could make any girl laugh and other days I felt like a loser.


    3 years after graduation I was still using PMO on a weekly basis and having borderline PIED in the bedroom. I decided it was time to quit and stumbled upon Nofap.


    Day 1-7


    I felt like I was the king of the world and I could take on anything. Superpowers were through the roof. Tons of energy. Girls looking at me left and right. The whole enchilada.


    Day 8


    I had some of the best sex I ever had and thought NOFAP was going to be super easy. The girl asked me if I was a sex god after sex.

    I was wrong. Boy was I WRONG!


    Day 9-64

    The flatline


    After having sex on day 8 , all my energy, desire for change, and anything positive just flat out died. My libido was gone. My creativity in the work place took a dive. I had less focus than ever before. It was as if my brain wanted to make me miserable in order to PMO. I had terrible head aches and brain fog. I was depressed and angry at times.


    Nothing could be more depressing than when I couldn’t get it up on my birthday with a gorgeous babe. That was truly my low point. I thought about suicide. I felt so alone.


    I work in a creative field and I would say the lack of dopamine greatly affected me. I felt like my creativity disappeared and all my hard work over the years was for nothing. I thought about changing my career many times.


    But none of this was deterring me. I forced myself to hit the weight room 5X a week. Chest day, leg day, back day, shoulder day, arm day. I did hot yoga weekly. I did low intensity training 2X a week and high intensity 2X a week. I was working out 10 times a week. I took ZMA as a supplement before I went to sleep every night. I changed my diet. I took cold showers all the time. I probably lost 10 lbs of fat and gain 10 pounds of muscle. Working out gave me hope that the hormones in my body were readjusting with all of the progress I made on my looks. This gave me tremendous willpower to fight through and not relapse.


    Day 65-Day 90

    The rewiring

    Day 65

    That day felt a little weird, I was visiting another city for fun and had a one-night stand. I only had sex once and I was awful. But I believe this was the turning point.


    A week later my super powers slowly returned, my creativity at work got better, working out seemed like less than a burden, social anxiety got better.


    Day 78

    Went to a wedding and brought a girl back and had some pretty great sex! I felt like I was the king of the world. I don’t remember ejaculating the amount that I did during sex in a long time.


    Day 90

    Today I feel full of energy, confident, and horny as shit. I will never go back to porn. I believe I’m still not a finished product and there is still some healing going on but with my PIED gone it is a huge relief.


    As I have read about superpowers before, I would like to share what I have noticed since my rewiring process began.


    The texture of my hair is completely different. I don’t know how to describe it. I use to like that modern short hair cut look but now I’ve grown my hair out to normal length because I’m obsessed with the way it looks and feels.


    Girls at work have definitely noticed me way more. I catch them staring at me and wanting to talk to me more now. If it wasn’t work I would definitely go for it. Girls in general seem more comfortable talking to me even if I don’t have much to offer to the conversation. Eye contact is huge. Big confidence booster.


    My gains in the weight room have been tremendous. I feel like The Rock now. Cardio has definitely gone up.


    I know officially penis size is not suppose to be a nofap benefit but it is for me. My junk is 1/2 inch bigger during erection and its way bigger flaccid.


    My focus and creativity at work has returned but I believe I have not peaked yet. I’ve done very well on some projects at work the last few weeks.


    Conclusion


    At the end of the day you have to want to change. I didn’t relapse because I knew this needed to happen in order to find the best version of myself. I saw working out and self body care as the biggest reasons I had the WILLPOWER to do it. Don’t lose hope. You can do really hard things.

    Working out too much gives you flatline that lasts for days. Beware

    You changed a lot of things in your life. Hence, you cannot attribute the benefits to only one of those changes, namely NoFAP.
    E.g. if this was a bodybuilding forum you would say working out changed your life. Beause it is NoFap's forum you say NoFAP changed your life.

    Great news, man! I am on the same trail: porn never more. And I was a heavy user for almost 20 years (I am 32 now). Improving little by little. Sometimes the libido is bad, but I am handling it and can still have sex. I hope my PIED is gone forever and I feel like a king in bed all the times. No more anxiety coming from sex.

    A big hug and keep up the good work!

    This is so inspiring. I was losing hope because I had just relapsed yesterday. But this is pulling me back out.

    Thank you for sharing your awesome journey.

    Try it. For one week don't do heavy work out such as lifting weights. Record how you feel. Then start doing heavy workout. See how you feel the next few days, if you can get an erection easily, if you feel flat line etc.

    In my experience, going to the gym gives a higher chance of erectile dysfunction

    I would have relapsed if it wasn’t for the gym.

    A) I would have spent more time at home. More PMO opportunities there.

    B) the release of endorphins from working out made up for the lack of dopamine during the flatline.

    god its relieving reading your 9-64 days portion bro because i'm experiencing the worst brain fog of my life (it's the reason i started NoFap) low in energy, libido etc. everything you described! I really hope mine disappears within the next month too because I've read others suffering from it for over a year! I wont quit tho!

    Yeah man it was scary. I honestly thought I was going to be one of those people. But through working out and possibly rewiring through sex I got out of it.

    I'm going hard mode but I guess if after 120 days I'll go ahead and go for real sex and see if it changes anything

    Yesterday I made it to day 90.

    Today I saw post up on barstool sports that was highly triggering for me. I won’t go in to other details about it because I don’t want to draw anyone else offsides.

    I didn’t relapse because I’m in a public place but I know for sure now I’m not completely healed. Stay strong everyone. Even when your PIED is healed the demons will tempt you to go back. Don’t let them!!!
