What are the Benefits of NoFap?
1. Rock-Solid Confidence
This was the main reason why I started NoFap mainly because I was introvert and less confident in social situations.
I used to avoid social conversation, avoid talking to girls and even avoided going to the GYM, parties, get-togethers, meetings and all sorts of social events.
Just because I was not confident enough to handle such situations.
So I decided to take control of this situation by implementing NoFap in my lifestyle.
Right after day 9, I started to feel the confidence in me. I was talking to the people without any hesitation and facing social situations without any fear.
This was mainly because I had no thoughts of porn and sex in my head while I was talking to the people. PMO(Porn, Masturbation, and Orgasm) also decrease your interest in social events.
But when you quit PMO, you develop rock-solid confidence and you start to take interest in social events.
This helped me express myself more clearly and confidently.
2. Endless Motivation and Willpower
A lot of porn addicts constantly report about the loss of motivation and will power in their life. This is because porn and masturbation have completely messed up their dopamine reward system.
Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter which is something that gives you the desire to seek for potential rewards. For instance, dopamine can cause you to crave for a certain dessert or cause you to level up when playing a video game.
It even helps you to get motivated to do a particular work.
The rats became lazy and as a result, they died of starvation even when food was provided for them. This is because they had no desire to motivate themselves to eat the food as dopamine receptors were turned off.
Sexual stimulation is the most dopamine inducing activity one can naturally experience. While watching porn, your dopamine level rises to around 200% of what is normal.
This completely messes you dopamine reward system leading to no motivation and willpower to do anything. But as you take NoFap challenge and abstain from porn and masturbation, your dopamine reward system starts to heal itself.
Once it’s back to normal, you feel endless motivation and willpower to do things and achieve something life.
Porn addiction consists of endless hours of watching porn. Even when you are not watching porn, you still think a lot about it.
This occupies a huge chunk of your work time making you less efficient & productive throughout the day.
But just imagine if you could save these hours and spent it on your work, personal development or anything that is making you better.
You could achieve a lot!
NoFap has made me more productive and efficient than ever before. Now, I finish whatever task comes in my hands in time without any procrastination.
This helped me build ManVsfap.com and also improve myself.
4. Boost in Testosterone Levels
An increase in testosterone level is the first thing that happens when you abstain from masturbation.
According to this famous Chinese study, testosterone level increases up to 145.7% by day 7 of abstaining from masturbation. And if you know, testosterone is the most vital hormone for man. It’s what makes you a real man.
More testosterone means more muscle, more energy, less fat, better libido and more.
Several guys on the NoFap Reddit community have reported fat losses after quitting masturbation which clearly indicates an increase in testosterone level.
I felt a huge difference before and after taking the NoFap challenge in my testosterone level. I was able to lift heavyweight in the GYM and do more physical work throughout the day.
And do you know that in boxing sports, Boxers are not allowed to masturbate or do any kind of ejaculation before a match comes up?
Because a loss of testosterone means loss of energy and power.
5. Legit Libido
When you abstain from porn and masturbation, you go through a period called Flatline. This is the period when you will experience low libido(sexual drive) simply because your brain is healing itself. This period usually occurs depending upon your addiction level.
But once you successfully pass this period, you will have a real libido which can be controlled by you.
This makes sex more enjoyable. You will have a legit erection and your partner will be happy with you.
I experienced this benefit after day 25. I was able to get hard within seconds and this felt a lot enjoyable.
Some may even experience this benefit after 90 days. This depends on how much you were addicted to PMO. For instance, this guy felt extremely high libido after 90 days.
6. Renewed Interest in little things
When you stop fapping, you start to enjoy little things. This happens because you no longer need high dopamine stimulations. Dopamine is a chemical that gives you happiness.
When you watch porn and masturbate, a large amount of dopamine is released into your brain. This is what gives you artificial happiness and makes you addicted to it.
That’s why you don’t find joy and happiness in doing little things. You just like watching porn and masturbating because that’s more rewarding.
But when you do NoFap, you completely eliminate that dopamine stimulation. So now your brain is not addicted to high reward and finds interest in little things.
Things like painting, singing, dancing, watching videos, walking, exercising, hanging out with friends and eating food becomes more interesting.
7. No More Erectile Dysfunction
Excessive porn and masturbation is the main cause of Erectile Dysfunction. Most guys join NoFap mainly because they suffer from this problem.
Erectile Dysfunction usually happens to the men who are over 65+ in age. But these days, this problem can happen to anyone who is addicted to porn and masturbation.
Erectile Dysfunction is basically when you can’t get hard around an actual woman. This usually happens when you watch too much porn and do a lot of ejaculations.
This is a serious problem and you may have it if you continue to watch porn on a daily basis.
But when you implement NoFap in your life, Erectile Dysfunction starts to disappear. You start to feel normal and get a natural erection.
8. Crystal Clear Thinking
Clear thinking is crucial when it comes to becoming successful in life. It helps you take better decisions in life and finds the purpose of life.
Porn and masturbation make your brain lazy. You think less and unclear. You have no vision and don’t know what to do next.
This happens because your brain gets too much dopamine than needed. Excessive dopamine can mess up your entire thought process and make it slow.
Giving porn and masturbation a stop can prevent you from brain fog. You will have a crystal clear thinking.
I used to have a lot of brain fog before joining NoFap. But right after joining NoFap, I started to have a vision, clear thinking, and focused thoughts.
This helped me take better decisions in my life and work efficiently.
You might find this benefit a little bit odd and will question: what NoFap has to do with wealth?
The answer is again – sexual energy.
Sexual energy is the most powerful energy a human can have. Not only it attracts women, but almost anything you want.
With this energy, you get the maximum potential to achieve your dream. Plus, NoFap saves a lot of time.
This gives you the ability to start a business, learn a new skill or anything that attracts wealth in life. The importance of sexual energy in attracting wealth is mentioned in Think and Grow Rich Book.
NoFap helped me preserve my sexual energy and use it for focusing on my business and gradually earn some wealth.
13. Hair Growth Increases
This is one of the most controversial NoFap benefits. Some people have experienced it and others haven’t.
But for me, I did experience stronger hair and less hair fall after doing NoFap. Some studies claim that masturbation increases the amount of DHT(Dihydrotestosterone) in free circulation.
And if you know, DHT is the main factor for hair loss in adult males. So yes, masturbation does cause hair loss and giving it a break can result in hair growth.
Your hairs become stronger and you might be able to stop the hair loss.
Flatline is the stage of NoFap when you will experience Zero libido (Sexual Desire) and will start to see all the negative sides of NoFap. This simply means No Sexual Desire OR Urges for a specific amount of time that’s because your brain is going through a rewiring process.
But flatline is just a stage of NoFap and it will pass away after a certain amount of time. And once you pass this stage, your self-control will become stronger than ever before.
You will able to have more control over yourself. This will help you in various areas of life. And will help you beat any kind of addiction.
NoFap made my self-control stronger. Now I have the ability to control myself in any situation.
16. Increase Optimism
Optimism is another important aspect of life. It helps you do almost anything that you wished to do. It creates a positive feeling about the work that you are willing to do.
It gives you the ability to finish your work. It makes you more productive and efficient.
Feeling optimistic in life is a good thing because it helps you achieve success. You do things better and always finish them.
With this benefit, I do my work on time and always finish what I started to work on. This helped me grow my YouTube Channel and start this blog.
17. Saves a lot of time
The average porn session lasts about 30 mins. The average man watches porn twice a week. This occupies 240 mins of watching porn in a single month and 48 hrs in a single year.
Now imagine how much time you spend on porn every day. Some of you may even watch it for like 1-2 hrs in a day.
This is how porn is destroying your time. You can do a lot of things in that time instead of wasting it. You can do exercise, read books, meditate, give time to your hobby, study, focus on business and anything that you wished to do.
Time is like money. So be careful while wasting it.
Quitting porn and starting NoFap saves a lot of time. You turn your porn session into a self-improvement session.
NoFap helped me save my time and now I do a lot of productive things in that time.
The most life-changing transformation one can make today is NoFap. It’s the best way to quit porn and make your life better. It gives you tons of life-changing benefits.
All the NoFap benefits that people claim online are real. I highly recommend NoFap if you have sexual problems or you are not satisfied with your life.
