    Hello,
    I'm a newbie here. First of all hello to every warrior, you all are an inspiration to me. I'm facing an issue leading this NoFap lifestyle. Before that let me give a brief introduction about my fapping history, I've been active since last 9 years, I'm currently 27 years old, and I used to bust my nut on an average 3 times a week mostly while watching porn, so I was never an addict, since last few months I reduced my fapping to once or twice a week mostly. And when I came to know about NoFap I thought of giving it a try.
    I'm currently on Day 37, but I don't see any noticeable changed in my body, neither I'm getting any urges nor any flatline. I've always been active, I like to lift as well as run 5k, 10k. Could somebody tell me why I can't see any changes? Thanks for reading!

    Hi Mathtronout, fellow PhD student (Chemistry) here. Congratulations for already being at 37 days (PMO free?)

    Just because you only used PMO 3 times a week doesn't mean you are not an addict. Sure you can go multiple days, compared to someone who can't even do one day, but if you eventually start craving porn to give point of relapse then you are addicted. It might be difficult to admit that to yourself but I think it's an important step in quitting completely.

    I also wouldn't expect to see huge changes especially after just 37 days. Some people bring up the idea of getting "superpowers" but I find that the changes are far more subtle. I feel more focused and confident at work, I find my wife more attractive, I feel generally more happy. They are all fairly little things but they contribute a lot to improving my quality of life.

    I would recommend starting a journal on here and logging your progress each day. Set yourself a target of 90 days no PMO and see how you feel by the end of it. Keep up with the exercise and try to build in other healthy and positive habits into your routine. The changes don't have to be NoFap related but it's a really good opportunity to focus on improving yourself. Good luck on your journey!

    There are no magical changes. So, it may be very possible that what you are getting from your streak isn't very noticeable at the present moment.

    Also, what kind of changes are you looking for? Are you wanting to make women swoon left and right? (It's never gonna happen, even if you get a million day streak going on.) Or are you looking to get your sexual perspective sorted and indulge in real relationships with real life persons?

    It's all so subjective and dependent upon your individual needs and goals and dreams.

    By the way welcome to the community. :)
    P.S. I hate maths. lol

    I actually saw many Youtube videos on the benefits of NOFAP, and some of them literally sounded like unreal, but few of them were quite believable like the improvement of skin quality, boost of self confidence, increase in concentration and few others. But I have not felt any of these very strongly. I'm not convinced till now why I should not masturbate!

    Guys, I need a quick help and would really appreciate it.

    It's regarding a math question, please have a quick look:

    square root(a^2 + b) = c, where “a" is an integer, b = a/2, and c = 3*a. Please answer this math question by reducing this equation to its simplest form (answer should be a quadratic equation = 0). Then, insert the number “-4” in “a” and write that answer next to the first question. The image of the equation is as follows:

    Where are you having trouble? Just insert the values first and then square both sides, you would get 16a^2-a=0, then you just replace a by a-4, doing so you would get few extra terms which you should compensate by subtracting the same.

    Well, when guys are into chronic masturbation, their diet is also crap and they don't do any physical activity. So when on nofap, you eat better and move out... Skin problems may get better. Therefore, I can understand that claim. Confidence and focus also improves somewhat depending on where you are at. Be patient and start making some real life goals to attain alongside clean days and you may shock yourself!

    Good luck. :)
