I don’t know anyone here who has 2+ years. But if you want a very powerfull succes story, search on the internet fo Soaring Eagle’s translations to english (he is chinese). He has 6+ year streak, and has helped thousands of nofapers.

I was just going to post that book on my topic. Lol.

Hey, two years and 3 months here, or 810 days, I would say yes, full recovered,

If you’re interested in my experience here it’s where I started:

"After 13 years of porn addiction (12-25) I made it, I reach 190 days in a row, something that’s seemed impossible at the beginning. And I guess it’s my longest strike. Yes, the first 2 months are hell, you’re going to suffer because your body, your brain, it’s going to ask all the dopamine you gave it in the past. It take time to your system to rebuild.You need to investigate the effect that masturbation addiction makes on your brain, it’s terrible, like cocaine or worst, because it’s free and all the time available. that was one of the reasons that helps me to quit, to see how this addiction broke me, it destroyed my brain, I can’t get focus on anything, I lost lots of hair, etc, my hormones were a mess.
You need to focus on the bad effects, to make a good recovery and not to start again and again.

After the second or third month, you are going to stop thinking in sex all the time, the urges are going to dissappear, it’s crazy, from one week to another youre going to live a new life, and forget that in one time you needed to masturbate 1 or 2 times a day. Its possible, if I made it, you can, it’s not easy, I’ve very poor mental will and now it’s seems really weird to look in the past on how I was. Of course you need to change habits, not to be alone all day, exercise more (most important, for the health of your mind, just run), delete all things that makes you fall, contacts, webs, apps, burn all the bridges, the time is now.

I haven’t see superpowers in me, but now I’m more confident, I’m not tired when I do sports, and yes girls look at you different, it’s hormonal things. A looser masturbates to avoid life, his problems. A man, a woman, they confronts frustrations, they’re adults, you become an adult. Sorry for my english, I hope to be useful to inspire you to start today the new you that you want to be. It gonna be really hard, but the reward it’s awesome.
Good luck"

And another post:

“299 days, I feel amazing, I haven’t solved much of my problems but I fixed this one, after more than 12 years I can say I’m free of this addiction. It wasn’t easy, the first month it’s the worst, that’s why many of you only can last a couple of days or weeks, but after that your body and your brain starts to learn how to work again without all that dopamine. Like any other addiction you will suffer the abstinence, you’ve to start a new sport, a new hobbie to focus that energy on a good propose.
Now, after 12 years of masturbation daily, I no longer think on porn or sex, I never thought I could reach this point, but here I’m. And so do you. I was weak (I’m) but I did it. It possible.
It’s silly but I’m only keep using the app to check which medal I earned. And also to keep telling you don’t give up, one day, one step, the future it’s brighter than you can imagine”

Doesn’t matter if you’re one year into nofap, if you leave these things unattended to, you might go back to using porn.

Most of these underlying issues that drive people to porn can include;

Childhood trauma
Poor self-image
Depression
Loneliness
Social Anxiety, and so on

Aside from the clinical problems (which you should consult a therapist or physician for), most of these issues can be flipped by picking up empowering habits.

The good news is nofap provides you with the perfect platform to revamp your habit cycles. You’ll have that extra energy, that extra kick in your step, and you’ll have the time to work on bettering yourself.

These are some examples of new habits that people work on more when they are on nofap;

Exercising
Meditating
Listening to other people more
Cutting junks out of their diet
Reading more books
Cooking, and so on.

These new habits not only helps you become a new and better version of yourself, but they also make your nofap challenge super-easy.

You are effectively substituting your porn watching habit with empowering habits. And in more than 50 years of research on habit change, habit substitution has been found to be the most effective model.
