    2) Better stamina in sports
    3) Absence of depression, as in "there's actually nothing wrong with me"
    4) Better short term memory, grasp conversations, sharp and clear mind
    5) Feeling worthy of hottest girls
    6) Interacting with people goes from nuisance to fun activity

    39) Men respect you more
    40) Men flinch in your presence
  2. Number 18 is spot on. Just last night, my wife gasped at my destructive erection.

    Nofap isn't some kind of magical cure for all of life's troubles, it is but a (large) stepping stone towards achieving success.

    This is fantastic. It's super important for people to do this for themselves and not read other peoples lists because by making the reasons personal, it's easier to sustain motivation. I just posted something today all about this here.

    Hey @Bhuvan
    nice compilation. I can agree to many of them.

    On the other hand, I see many comments of the type here as well:
    You two are also correct:
    No one will experience these benefits all the time. Many people then also will be quite disappointed, when they don't get these benefits. And that may be dangerous to promoise too much.

    In general my take on this is:
    With nofap you'll have SO MUCH MORE ENERGY and if you use this energy in an productive and wise manner (like self improvement), you will get many of these benefits, that's for sure.

    Especially you don't have these "sinister black shadows" of PMO around you and you are just free. That gives me an enormous boost, when I think about it.

    Also another point (primarily from this book here https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.p...op-smoking-applying-the-method-to-pmo.155008/ ) is that if you use your energy and willpower just to fight this addiction "full frontal" by just abstaining (and feel this tug of war) then yes, it may drain this new energy so much, that you won't feel the benefits.
    That's why I totally recommend the method from this book.

    I'd say that's fair answer. I don't consider it quite a "magic bullet", but it is a damn good aid if deep down you already have your heart set on succeeding in life.

    Sheer delusion. Notice how none of those things are measurable?

    That is just a list written by excited kids in placebo effect after 2 weeks on nofap.

    I want to do a study because I think a lot of these "super powers" come from people who were starting at level 0 of personal development

    I'd like to stress that all my changes are not just from giving up porn and masturbating. In the past 8 months I have quit facebook, quit tinder and all that shit, quit my gym (to train solo at home) ditched my psychologist and basically avoid social gatherings like the plague. My psychologist told me masturbating to porn was no problem! Also, i've purchased over $400 AUD worth of books on spirituality, corrected a mineral imbalance and thus raised testosterone and lowered estradiol, have been smashing out non-duality talks on YouTube, dialled in my plant based diet, started yoga, daily meditation and have been using entheogens (mushrooms and ayahuasca) rigorously for 7 months. After the https://dmt.vision/articles/105/ meditation and heavy entheogen use, I could fucking feel the light trying desperately to push through the thick fog but I just didn't know exactly what it was that was causing it. So far it hasn't been too challenging, just a couple of 3-4 am relentless erections that were somewhat bothersome.

    oh, yes. But how are you going to develop yourself if there is something that you fundamentally hate about yourself, that you indulge in for hours every day?

    You don't just eradicate habits, you replace them with BETTER ones. So find some healthy positive thing to get 'addicted' to, and watch as your life gets better and better.

    I know it's a few years old now, but that post (the linked one) is extraordinarily good!
