    Your brain will repair 60-80% of your dopamine receptors during this time.

    Someone wrote a book and made up a theory about those 90 days being a "reboot" from "porn addiction".

    It has not been proven in peer-reviewed studies anywhere. It's just broscience.

    Once you make the decision to stop masturbating in presence of any sexual triggers forever, your brain is repaired at that day.

    It might take you a few years to get there though. If one is still doing mental gymnastics about how some "quick release" can't be harmful or how evil instagram chicks force one to masturbate, they still have a long way to go. Every addiction starts with being in denial and overcoming that denial.

    Well recently i found how to calculate how much time you need to reboot.You have to put years that you masturbated and multiply it by 2 and you will know how much months you need,for example i masturbated 6years so 6x2 is 12months so i need 1 year to reboot ,idk if its true or not but i think thats average time i need to heal.

    Addiction is a strange phenomena. It seems to affect different people in different ways.

    I see the original 30 day challenge as a kind of test - if you can do it easily, you probably aren't addicted (doesn't mean you won't be better off without porn though). If the first few weeks were a struggle, but it got easier, best carry on to 90 days to make sure you don't go back to square one as soon as the challenge is up. If, like me, you are so addicted that you can't even do 30 days, then you have serious addiction problems and you need to carefully examine your triggers, causes of your addictions etc. and develop a clear strategy for your next attempt.

    90 days just sound fine and is easier to remember for people.
    I myself wondered why would something take 90 days and not 89 or 91 for instance?
    The answer is: these other numbers just don't look as good as 90.

    This is interesting. Did you discover masturbation before porn? I am wondering where is best to count it from. I was masturbating a long time before I discovered pornography.

    This is completely unfounded in medical research regarding any addiction.

    It doesn't matter, because they all have masturbation addiction. There is not a single porn addict, who doesn't compulsively masturbate.

    Any research in this topic (not that there has been much) will work on 'averages' anyway. There is so much variety person to person, you just have to find what works for you. And the best way to do that is trial and error. (and the experiences of people here who seem similar to you in some sense)

    90 days of nofap (hardmode) 0 fantasing, 0 edging, 0 pornography, 0 watching triggering things, 0 masturbation - will be enough to feel like a new person who has motivation, energy, confidence - regardless of how long have you masturbated.

    Masturbation addiction is well researched.
