Hey all, just coming on here to add my name to the success stories. Also, check the bottom for my story about the limp-dick I experienced after my streak!!! I used to fap almost daily for most of my life. I started young and never stopped. I started experimenting with NoFap about 3 or 4 years ago because I had never had a strong desire to seek out a real relationship. I didnt have any motivation because I fapped every day. So I had some short streaks of maybe a few weeks at a time, I dated a bit, went back to fapping. Eventually it came to a point where I knew I had to quit. There was no other option. I wanted to be in control of my life. I wanted to have a serious relationship, a wife, a dream girl. I wanted to work out, to be healthy, to be successful. And I knew, from my previous experiences, that it all had to start with giving up the fap. I went hard mode for 5 months, no porn, masturbation, or orgasm, after a few shorter streaks that I needed to gain some momentum. During that time I did date a girl briefly, and had sex once and also masturbated twice for reassurance purposes at about the 2 month mark. Otherwise I made it all the way and I never looked at porn. I also have not looked at porn since then, and have not masturbated except for strictly normal sexual health purposes no more than 3 or 4 times (more on that later). Its now been about 9 months. I have been dating a girl for about 3 months, am fulfilling my career dreams, have high energy, feel fulfilled, and so much more. Im finally becoming the man I always dreamed of being but never had the willpower to become. During my hardmode I was working out pretty much daily, and also I was listening to audio tracks and videos and reading up on dating for men from dating coaches and learning the game. I used to have no confidence with women, didnt understand them, didnt know how to play the game. Now I understand, I know how to get women, how to charm them, how to win them, how to make them my girlfriend, how to love them, how to care for them, and how to be a good partner in life and in bed. For those of you who want these things too, I would personally recommend getting your hands on some mens dating material. I paid for mine. It was expensive, I probably spent $1000-$2000 in total on self help dating stuff for men. Its a lot of money, but every penny was worth it to me. The dating coaches I used, for those interested, were rob judge, bobby rio, jon sinn, and a few others. Bobby rio has a youtube channel with lots of free videos, you should check him out. You can probably find most of the stuff I used for free somewhere on the internet if you dont want to pay, but to me I felt that money was well earned and well spent. Back to my hardmode experience. It was hard. The first weeks are the hardest for sure. It took me a few brief streaks to get used to those first few weeks. Theres extreme depression, really hard days when you cant relax, flatline, loneliness, and all sorts of other problems. But it does get easier. Make sure you have ways to distract yourself. You know the drill. Anyways, I also experienced a resurgence of urges around 30 days in or so on one of my first 30 day streaks. I was DESPERATE. I was on dating apps looking for anything to fuck. I was practically ready to fuck a prostitute. I almost did. But I didnt. thankfully. I did relapse during that streak though. But my next streak was the 5 month streak. Now its been 9 months. Im free from urges, free from porn, capable of dating any girl. I am the man I always dreamed of being. I dont even think about porn any more. I dont even think about masturbating any more. Its amazing! I know, deep in my heart, that I will never look at porn again and I will never masturbate to porn again! It is possible!!! You can do it too!!! FREE YOURSELF!!! DONT BE A SLAVE TO PORN ANY MORE!!! Anyways, life is so much better these days. Its amazing how much time you free up just by getting rid of porn and masturbation and not spending time thinking about the next time you will get to masturbate. Now for my erectile dysfunction story. So I found out that, after my streak of 2 months, I basically had erectile dysfunction with women. I was extremely arroused, but I couldnt get hard. I actually ended up ejaculating before ever even getting an errection. I was obviously extremely worried. So I went home and masturbated without porn to make sure everything was working, and sure enough I was able to get an erection and ejaculate like normal. So then I did it again for good measure. After that I went back on my streak and didnt masturbate or cum for another 3 months, 5 months total. After the 2 month relapse, I didnt have any trouble starting back on my streak. It wasnt at all like starting back at day 0, it was more like nothing changed at all. I didnt go back into flatline or have a resurgence of urges or anything like that. After 5 months, I got another opportunity to test my dick out with another women I started dating. and IT HAPPENED AGAIN! We were trying to have sex, but I COULDNT GET IT UP!!! I was so embarrassed!!! I decided that the problem was that I had spent so long suppressing any and all sexual functioning that my dick was like a hibernating bear. It was gonna take some time to wake back up. So that week I masturbated a few times to get things moving again. A week after my failed sexual encounter, I got another chance with the same woman, and this time I had no problems getting an errection. I was back to normal! And I haven't had a single problem since! Thats my success story. Thanks for reading. I hope you find my story helpful and encouraging that success is possible and that you can take your life into your own hands and become the man you always dreamed of being!
