    Hello NoFap Community!
    I'm Sparksys and I'm 20 yrs old and this is my first time being here.
    I saw many great success stories and accomplishments from you guys and I'm ready to have my own success story soon enough!

    I suffer from Premature Ejaculation, I don't know why but I guess that it is from watching porn for the past 6 years.
    As soon as I start Masturbating to a porn video I can ejaculate in 1 minute!!
    But for a moment I started thinking, what would happen when I marry soon enough and have an intercourse with my future wife? I really don't want to ejaculate in 1 minute :(

    That's why I have decided to start the NoFap journey and hopefully it cures my Premature Ejaculation once and for all. and who knows what other benefits I may get haha.

    I would love to hear from any of you who had Premature Ejaculation and cured it.
    Good luck everyone and stay strong boys!

  2. Hi. Welcome to forum!

    There is some correlation between excessive porn use and PE. Not fapping will most likelly help - https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/is-my-premature-ejaculation-related-to-my-porn-use

    Make sure you crate a personal journal thread in Reboot Logs section and blog there on a regular basis. As well as just generally be active participant in various forum discussions. I recommend this to everybody new here because it's the major thing that helped me when I was first starting. Just lurking on forums, reading and learning is great. But it usually is so much more powerful to engage. It helps to keep us motivated and accountable when we are active part of community. And keeps this in front of our minds so we don't forget about importance of it and slip away in our old habits. Sharing is also therapeutic. This is a major reason why AA meetings work so good. But that was developed before internet era. These days we can get most of the same benefits online through communities like this. So don't underestimate the power of active participation.

    I would also like to suggest you to look into mindfulness meditation. It has helped me personally tremendously. It takes a while to get good at it and notice results, so you need to be consistent with it, but once you do it's very powerful. It has been used by sages for thousands of years to deal with various issues of the mind. And in recent decades the science is also catching up to what ancient sages have know for centuries. Meditation these days are widely used as very effective tool by psychologists for treating addiction and by neurologists for supporting recovery of the brain. It is a great exercise for the brain the same way as jogging is great exercise for the body. Check out this Ted talk, it gives a good idea of what's it about when it comes to philosophy. As far as practical side of it there is this awesome smartphone app called Headspace for guided meditations to get you started.

    Wish you lot's of strength and success in your reboot journey!

    Thank you! Your words meant a lot to me.
    I really hope that it cures my PE, I feel insecure having it so it will mean the world to me to have it cured.
    That's why I started my NoFap Journey and hopefully I can reach my goal.

    Thanks.
