NoFap Benefits – My Experience of Quitting Masturbation

Occasionally a personal development strategy comes along which really does live up to all the hype. I want to share the benefits of NoFap – the discipline of quitting masturbation. I first heard about NoFap from Napoleon Hill’s classic personal development work Think And Grow Rich. There’s an obscure chapter which outlines learning to control one’s sexual energies as a path to success. I was 19 when I read it, and though I took note of the unusual message, I took no action on it until many years later. And then, at the age of 33, I stumbled upon some YouTube videos of people describing how quitting masturbation gives them ‘super powers’. NoFap Benefits The NoFap benefits claims of these YouTubers were almost too good to be true: Removing anxiety from life Increasing confidence Creating an aura of sexual attraction around you Improved mental functions Improved creativity More social success Strengthened willpower Greatly enhanced mood So, I tried it… And it worked. My Personal Experience of NoFap My own experience of NoFap was that every day going without masturbating added a kind of ‘inner pressure’. I felt progressively more irritable, more creative and much more confident. It’s almost as if emotional stabilisers were added to my life, and the things which usually disrupted my emotional tranquillity only did so at about 10%.
