    So, I am nowhere near rebooted. In fact i think i haven't even started yet.

    But for some encouragement for us who are struggling desperately, as ask the successful guys on here:

    What are the top 5 most noticeable benefits you felt from your reboot?

    Thanks in advance.

    1) No social anxiety

    2) In control of my own mind - No constant cravings of an artificial stimulus

    3) Brain fog completely gone - Very good at keeping conversations going and focus on people when they talk

    4) More time to focus on other and more productive things in life (e.g. writing on nofap :D)

    5) PIED slightly less severe (more time required)

    From my own experiments of going NoFap for 60 days once and 90 days twice I personally call BS on all this about brain fog or creativity or whatever, for me it was the complete opposite that I was in a chronic state of thinking about sex.

    HOWEVER the thing I absolutely cannot deny is:
    1) Rock hard erections when have a girl in bed.

    1. Felling completely confident. No anger or frustration. Sort of a feeling of coming back home again. Feeling safe.

    2. Happiness. A felling of intamicy in everything. Like you can sense an atmosphere very intense. Even atmospheres in people. Like you can sense their personality on another level.

    3. Felling connected to other people and the world. This might be what people talk about when they talk about brain fog. It is like you get out of your shell and can walk freely in the world of everyone you meet.

    4. No social anxiety. This is lovely if you a bit insecure by nature. You can actually talk to whoever you want. And you can talk to the hottest girl without glorifying her as an sexual object.

    5. Your libido gets under control. The need to fap constantly cools down. This is probably a benefit that comes over a longer time of Nofap.

    5a. You understand women. It's like you understand women on another level. You sense them in another way and you don't only see a possible sex partner, you see a person and a personality.

    I did 120 hard mode days last summer. Like BurpMan I didn't experience any brain benefits. I found my biggest advantage was my strength gains in the gym. Perhaps its all mental placebo but I just can't lift as heavy now that I no porn fap daily.
    That there is reason enough. It's not that I'm a gym douche. Lifting somehow brings me an amazing peace.

    I am at 51 days of a 90 day hard mode trial. Your first responder is about 5 days farther along than I am, and I'd say my answer would be exactly the same as anxiety and brain fog greatly diminished, more motivation to do constructive things (I have been in my house 2 years and finally put up the blinds that have been sitting in the corner all that time...LOL). Like CrushUrCravings, I'm not totally cured of PIED, but when I have sexual encounters (with aid of Cialis, no O), the sex feels A LOT better and I'm more connected to my partner.
