    Hello everyone,

    I´d like all of you to tell me all the Benefits that you experienced from Nofap in ever aspect of life (physically, emotionally, religiously … what has changed on your Body, on your genitals also, on your face etc …)
    That would be very interesting and helpful for all of us and even more for me and could help us to Keep our Motivation on track :)

    I don't think I can find a direct cause between nofap and the changes in my life. Reading "Your brain on porn" did, however, scare the crap out of me, because, in reverse order of discovery:

    - I realised I had a shitty childhood, where I thought I had a good one
    - Which contained a lot of emotional neglect
    - Which led to a lot of emotional pain
    - Which led to addictions, such as pornography addiction, nail-biting etc.
    - Which ruined most of my past relationships and my sense of self

    For me nofap is not a challenge, after reading the above mentioned book I realised that this must be a life-style change, not a challenge. And from then on, things changed in my life, became more emotionally aware and solved emotional issues, which had the following impacts:
    - acne is finally gone (I'm 37... quite embarrassing)
    - no more nail-biting
    - more awareness of what's going on in the body on a sensation level
    - peace and clarity of mind
    - dealt with loneliness, so now I can enjoy my own company

    So, again, I don't think I can say there's a causality between nofap and the above changes, but I can definitely say that nofap was a catalyst to change my lifestyle.

    I can say that when I go clean for a while (sometimes after just a day or two) I have more energy, am more alert and creative. I make a lot of wood/metal art and keep a little notebook in my pocket to scribble down ideas for things to make, and put a date on each one. I recently cross-checked the dates with a porn-tracker and I had a lot more ideas the longer I went without.
    I also get "You're being so affectionate and loving this week" type comments from my girlfriend when I haven't relapsed in a while, and think I appreciate her more

    Ok, physically, I'm leaner and my posture improved slightly. I grow more hair... everywhere. I needed nosehair trimmers months ago... Eyebrows damaged from persistent trichotillomania is growing back. My eyelashes are longer, too. Mentally, I still suffer from social anxiety, but it's not as crippling as it used to be. I've learned to love myself, but not enough, it feels like. I'm more of a people person now, but being alone is a blessing now. Religiously? Was, waaay more spiritual now. The idea of death isn't as scary as it used to be.

    Edit: religion is a joke now

    Thanks for your reply, it is really really encouraging to read your post and hopefully other will do the same and give us details of their benefits ^^

    Please, do respect religious people, you may not be religious and see it as being a joke, but others may be religious and be offensed by what you wrote.

    Personally, I haven't experienced any benefits from NoFap. I want to think because I never was a pornography addict to begin with. But the community has helped me a lot with other issues so I must give credit to them.

    good question.. I think that physically :
    1) a lot of additional energy that leads to better shape if you use it in the right way
    2) your face look cleaner bc you lose a lot of stress so also wrinkles
    3)hair growth... but I think it's personal.. I mean I was losing them bc of my stressful routine so losing routine probably helped
    mentally:
    1) better quality of sleep
    2) your mind step by step go back to straight thinking
    3) a lot of motivation
    these are the most important I think.. But remember that it's not like a game like I arrive at 90 days and I won all girls are mine my penis is giant and so on.. It's a journey to a new self.. if you don't take it seriously you won't get any of these benefits bc you will be the same person.. You have to change yourself and nofap is a way.. Not the answer

    differences are not in size but in quality.. I mean when you came back to straight thinking you finally get aroused for the right things and you experience a really good and long arousing.. like the boner in the morning

    That is cool and it is probably the most important thing to get aroused for good things and not bad ones :D
    But I also heard of some changes in shape and even for some, in size etc
