    I'm currently in a computer science school, and I want to start a project around NoFap and its users. Today, i'm not going to tell a thing about it. I've my ideas, but I don't feel to talk about it right know.

    But what I need is some answers of some NoFap users. So if you have time, could you please fill my survey ? :)

    You can reply here or via Private Message, as you wish !

    0) Male or female ?

    1) How old are you ? Since when did you Fap / use porn ? When did you decided to stop ?

    2) Did you relapsed more than one time ? If yes, how many days did you hold before fapping / porn ?

    3) Did you choose to stop by yourself or someone ask you to stop it ?

    4) On a scale from 1 to 10, how motivated are you about stop fapping / porn ?

    5) What keeps you motivated ? Be large in your answer, don't be afraid to write down everything that keep you motivated.

    6) If you feel close to relapse, what do you usually do to keep porn / fap away from you ?

  2. 0)Proud female!
    1)19 and a half, 2 years and a half, about one month but I quitted old turkey
    2)Not since I started NoFap but I tried one year ago and hold it 2 months exactly
    3)This time I entirely choose by myself and I'm going incredibly well, last time it didn't worked because someone made me do it
    4)On a scale of 10, I'd say that I'm at least at 1 000 000 000 (not joking just see my journal)
    5)Feel better in my own skin, it's not much stopping porn itself, I love orgasms, it just made me change so much better in an extremely better way, like exercising, making friends, it's still in progress but accepting myself as a human being and not a piece of trash
    6)I vomit my mind here, most effective way I've ever tried. Screw cold shower, I make a novel about it here and it helps me. the support here also is unbelievable. Also I just don't relapse. As. Simple. As. That.
    7)I don't have anyone close, but actually my parents are the one and only people that don't know I'm doing NoFap. They perfectly know my addiction and everyone knows it but I want it to be a big present for them. A happier me.
    8)I'd say 1 000 000 000 again. I'm extremely open about my sexuality on the internet. Probably too much.

    This is a fantastic project, fabulously interesting, I wish you the best ever. Please, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask me more questions. You can know who I am on my journal here.

    Wish you all the best buddy, stay strong!

    1) I'm 25,5. I've been using porn since I was around 13. I had ideas of stopping it every now and then but these were just stray thoughts. I decided to stop on the 25th of November, 2013, when I found out Gary Wilsons video on yourbrainonporn.com
    2) I haven't relapsed since I started NoFap, I'm doing this cold turkey + hard mode.
    3) It's purely my own decision.
    4) 10/10. Though I'm not that much excited about it compared to how much I was in the beginning. For the record, I'm 73 days clean at this moment.
    5) My biggest motivation is and was, to eliminate porn, because I know that girls usually hate it. Makes them jelaous, and they will give you trouble because of it. I don't want this. Second, I was scared to death by the effect it can has on us. I haven't experienced anything serious...yet. But the thought of losing my emotions, not being able to perform without porn, and such scared me very much. I wish to avoid all these possible problems.
    6) I developed a certain strategy. The basic idea is that even if I'm triggered, and I wan't to fap, that still doesn't mean, that I have to act upon that urge. I'm using my willpower to break the addiction cycle in half, thus I don't have to try to hide from triggers, and they don't have an effect on me, because I don't let them. Or short, I'm just not touching myself.
    Also I'm a huge puzzle fan, and that takes all my concentration, so any urge I had quickly disappears.
    7) No, I'm single, though I have two accountability partners from real life who know about NoFap. Two girls, 28 and 44 year old.
    8) 10/10. I'm absolutely comfortable talking about this with anyone, anytime.

    1) 18 years old, been PMO'ing/MO'ing since 11 years old. I decided to become a fapstronaut on December of 2013, when I found out about the NoFap community.

    2) Yes, I think I have relapsed about 4 times before. I think my streaks were 7, 6, 14 and 2 days. I'm currently on my best streak of 18 days (and counting).

    3) It's my own personal decision.

    4) 10

    5) I hate the feeling you get after you PMO. Okay so you feel good for like 3 seconds, but 3 seconds of pleasure is not worth the guilt and shame I feel right after I PMO/MO. I just want to remove it from my life completely. I've already started seeing the benefits of not fapping, so I just want to keep going - it can only get better.

    6) I try to keep myself busy with something else - watch the NoFap Academy on youtube, check the NoFap forums and the subreddit and read the success stories on 'yourbrainonporn.com'. Motivational quotes are also great, some of my favorites are;

    "I wish I spent more time masturbating yesterday." - said no one ever.
    "If you are going through hell, keep going!"
    "It's always too early to quit."

    7) I am single, but a couple of my very close friends know that I'm taking part in the challenge.

    8) 10/10. We are all here to help each other get rid of this ridiculously annoying addiction so I have absolutely no problem talking to other fapstronauts. We are all in this together!

    0) Male or female ?

    Male

    1) How old are you ? Since when did you Fap / use porn ? When did you decided to stop ?

    46, 74 days ago, finally decided to stop about 80 days ago.

    2) Did you relapsed more than one time ? If yes, how many days did you hold before fapping / porn ?

    No relapse

    3) Did you choose to stop by yourself or someone ask you to stop it ?

    Chose myself

    4) On a scale from 1 to 10, how motivated are you about stop fapping / porn ?

    10

    5) What keeps you motivated ? Be large in your answer, don't be afraid to write down everything that keep you motivated.

    The reality of what porn actually is and no longer wishing to contribute to the 'demand' etc, the desire to be an example to my children (whom I talk to openly about this), no longer wasting my creative/sexual energy (am really into sexual energy transmutation), the feeling of achievement via self-discipline, increased clarity/energy/creativity,

    6) If you feel close to relapse, what do you usually do to keep porn / fap away from you ?

    Transmute sexual energy via various meditative 'techniques', re-direct aroused energies towards something more constructive etc

    7) Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend or a really close friend who knows about your NoFap fight ?

    Am currently single for first time in 25 years (which prompted me to want a fresh start in every sense) but talk to friends and family about this no problem (and even if it has caused one or two blushes I think people generally have viewed it as a refreshing change etc)

    8) On a scale from 1 to 10, how confortable would you be on a 1-1 talk with a internet NoFap user ?

    10

    All the best mate:)

    Alright
    0. Male
    1. I'm 19 decided to quit at 12-13 started when I was 11-12 seriously started like a little less than 2 years ago like 16-17 I was 299 days give or take porn free last year.
    2. My last streaks since I've joined have been 18,13,16,One i'm on,
    3. By myself I just decided this is how I have lived so far so something needs to change
    4. 10/10 you have to be any leeway and your brain will do everything to help you relapse.
    5. I think what keeps me motivated is girls I lost and girls I amy soon get. The farther I am the more confident I feel and thats honestly worth a lot to me. Even if it is just a placebo effect.
    6. Near relapse get away from all electronics, run outside, leave the house splash cold water on your face think of anything like girls I was with anything besides porn, watch gory clips or take a cold shower.
    7. Like I think 5 of my friends know and 3 of them we compare what day we are on its not bad.
    8.Comfort level is alright just don't go talking about illegal stuff but general stuff should be alright.

    Good luck man hope you can find what you were looking for

    1) male
    2) 20 years old. Started at around 13-14 and decided to make radical changes a couple of weeks ago.
    3) I made my own decision
    4) at least 9
    5) Realisation of what I will become. I believe that NoFap will change my life and make me a better person. I am also motivated by a report of a guy who was a 21 year old virgin (I, myself, am a virgin) and who became a very solid and confident man. I also believe that it will help me to guide my energy in other spheres, for example, that I will become a more dedicated guitar player. And for fuck's sake I hope finally I will get myself a girlfriend (I have never even kissed a girl :| ).
    6) I leave the porn and I fight my thoughts with extreme rationalizing of how this is going to affect my aspirations and how I will get only temporary satisfaction.
    7) I have never had a girlfriend but a couple of my friends know about. And one of them dearly appreciates what I am aspiring.
    8) At least 9. I feel that we all hold some connection and there is nothing to be afraid of while talking to a fapstronaut like you.

    0) Male or female ?

    Male.

    1) How old are you ? Since when did you Fap / use porn ? When did you decided to stop ?

    Sixteen. Started fapping at around eleven. Started porn around twelve or thirteen. I decided to stop about six months ago.

    2) Did you relapsed more than one time ? If yes, how many days did you hold before fapping / porn ?

    Definitely relapsed more than once. My highest streak is thirty-nine days and I usually keep a streak of about twenty to thirty days. On average.

    3) Did you choose to stop by yourself or someone ask you to stop it ?

    Personal choice.

    4) On a scale from 1 to 10, how motivated are you about stop fapping / porn ?

    Nine for jerking off. About a twenty for stopping porn ;)

    5) What keeps you motivated ? Be large in your answer, don't be afraid to write down everything that keep you motivated.

    I'm young and I have a lot that I want to accomplish in my life. I can either choice between jerking off and developing who I am, what I want to be, and working towards my ambitions. Some things you just can't do together. Successful life improvement and feeling more confident/at peace combined with porn is an impossibility. As of right now I'm motivated a lot by Mark Queppet, YBOP, and Kratos Guide. Mark Queppet and YBOP have completely changed my views on porn usage, jerking off, and living life without the chain of porn around your neck constantly.

    Also, I don't want to constantly be thinking about sex and objectifying women's bodies which is something I've been making a concerted effort against. I've been resetting my brains to treat girls like humans and not just another ass.

    6) If you feel close to relapse, what do you usually do to keep porn / fap away from you ?

    Work out, go outside, meditate, blast music, do yoga, chores around the house. Something to stay active. But I usually try to embrace the urges and realize that I can either give in to my body or lead an awesome life. Can't have both.

    7) Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend or a really close friend who knows about your NoFap fight ?

    Close friend.

    8) On a scale from 1 to 10, how comfortable would you be on a 1-1 talk with a internet NoFap user ?

    Seven.

    0) Male or female ?
    Male

    1) How old are you ? Since when did you Fap / use porn ? When did you decided to stop ?
    I am 27. I started masturbating at age 13. I wanted to see how much I can go without P or M in October, this being 4 and a half months ago. At that moment I wasn't determined to quit P or M forever, I just wanted to see how much I can last without them.

    2) Did you relapsed more than one time ? If yes, how many days did you hold before fapping / porn ?
    One relapse after 21 days, due to chaser effect. Before nofap, I tried stopping by myself and relapsed anywhere between 14 and 21 days.

    3) Did you choose to stop by yourself or someone ask you to stop it ?
    I chose to stop by myself.

    4) On a scale from 1 to 10, how motivated are you about stop fapping / porn ?
    10

    5) What keeps you motivated ? Be large in your answer, don't be afraid to write down everything that keep you motivated.
    It's a proof that I can change myself. If I can quit a habit that has such a strong grip on me like porn addiction, then I can change any behaviour. It's a road to self discovery. I am also doing it for my girlfriend and my relationship with her. Porn left me with the inability to O with girls, and I want to give my girl the gift of making me O. I love the extra boost in confidence that I got.

    6) If you feel close to relapse, what do you usually do to keep porn / fap away from you ?
    1. I take a cold shower to kill any sexual urges. 2. Have sex with my gf, or if that is not possible 3. I tell my girlfriend to keep an eye on me 4. Go for walks

    7) Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend or a really close friend who knows about your NoFap fight ?
    My girlfriend knows about it. I told her from the first moment I wanted to try nofap.

    8) On a scale from 1 to 10, how confortable would you be on a 1-1 talk with a internet NoFap user ?
    10. I have already talked to and encouraged other nofap users via email and Skype.
