    Hello everyone, I've browsed the forums for some time now and just today decided to join the community!

    Here's the deal: I've been absolutely P free for about 2 months now after a gradual process of reducing the quantity and "quality" I consumed during 2017 and although the temptation and desire are still there (I'm sure they never dissapear), I've gotten quite disciplined and thanks to God I don't see a relapse in the future in that regard. However I did MO without lustful thoughts or fantasies for a while after I quit P. I'm sure I can go all the way for the 90 days rewire process since while I was quitting P, I simultaneously also left my tobacco and cannabis addictions around October last year, it was hell to tackle those three issues at a time but very rewarding and strenghthening in retrospective.

    Now that P is out of the way for good and MO's being tamed, I've been on NoFap (activity) for over a month and a half and so far seems like the worst has passed and benefits are showing. My question is: Is quitting MO for life worth it? While I do have my spiritual motivations to seek purification of the soul and I'm fairly confident I can do it, I also see a lot of conflicting information regarding the health benefits/detriments I might recieve from such a goal. What do you guys think? Any experienced advice or other inputs are appreciated!

    For a lack of signature option, I leave you with this:
    2 Timothy 2:22 KJV
    22 "Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart."

    Good luck for your journey as well! Spiritually I definitely think it will help you live a less guilt driven lifeland help you feel closer to God.

    As for physical benefits from my current and previous streaks. More energy and motivation. Will not call them superpowers, just willpower to do what needs to be done :)

  4. Hello and welcome to NoFap!

    I certainly think that all human beings would benefit from staying from masturbation and porn forever. We got addicted for a reason.

    As for benefits and detriments, honestly, I haven't noticed many detriments from abstaining, except for brain fog. As for benefits, I've noticed the following:

    Increase attraction to and from women.
    Increased focus.
    Increased courage.
    Increased productivity.
    Better and more frequent erections.
    Dreams are more vivid.
    Sexual dreams are more common. ( debatable on whether this is a good thing or not )

    And more.
