11 Guaranteed NoFap Benefits in 2023 – Do You Know Them?

A coaching client of mine has been struggling with his porn and masturbation addiction.

Even though he was aware of many NoFap benefits, he couldn’t commit to the recovery program.

But in April 2020, he finally quit PMO.

And he has seen incredible benefits.

More confidence, intense creativity, and more awareness.

And most importantly: he’s in control of his emotional state.

He feels amazing.

Here are NoFap benefits that you can reap as well.

Benefit 1: More dopamine receptors ➡️ more pleasure
Benefit 2: When you can’t get distracted, you get motivated
Benefit 3: Get creative
Benefit 4: You feel in control and feel great about yourself
Benefit 5: You no longer objectify women
Benefit 6: Your romantic relationship gets better
Benefit 7: You help others (and strengthen your own commitment)
Benefit 8: Face challenges instead of escaping them temporarily
Benefit 9: Do more in ten minutes porn-free than in entire hours addicted

You can watch my story of going No Fap and loving its benefits.

My NoFap 5 years

Here are my three lessons from NoFap 5 years.

I’ve been porn-free for 8 years. During this time, I had two short relapses in 2017 and 2018. So technically my current NoFap streak is 5 years.

Those two relapses were painful but they taught me a lot:

1️⃣I felt embarrassed by watching porn. I felt like a creep. I don’t want to feel like that anymore.

2️⃣I felt regretful for losing my multi-year streak. It had been an accomplishment that had made me proud.

3️⃣I realized that porn-watching had been hell. This lifestyle is not for me.

And now I’ve been on NoFap for so long, I just take it for granted now. I don’t want to touch myself. I hate porn.

But I also forget to appreciate my benefits on NoFap. I became more confident. I got a girlfriend.

I made my dreams come true. More focus. More productivity.

I take these things for granted. But now that I think of them, I am so grateful. Let me share my benefits of NoFap with you.

Benefit 1: More dopamine receptors ➡️ more pleasure

If you resist an urge to watch porn and masturbate, your brain doesn’t get the easy dopamine it’s used to.

So what does it do? It fights for that dopamine high.

It makes you suffer by creating NoFap depression.

But if you persevere through suffering, the brain adjusts to the low dopamine level.

It increases the number of dopamine receptors to maximize the effect of the low dopamine it gets.

By having more dopamine receptors, you’ll feel more pleasure from simple things.

You’ll need way less stimulation to feel happy.

In other words, the more you suffer, the more pleasure you’re able to feel later.

That’s why an orgasm is more intense after a period of abstinence, for example.

Or that’s why I’m excited to see my family after being away for a month—I miss them badly.


Benefit 2: Feel more motivated

When my brain was addicted to porn, I was a battery to the system. I didn’t want to get out of my room and get rid of my porn addiction.

I didn’t want a girlfriend. I didn’t want to travel. I didn’t want to live a passionate life.

Until I realized I actually wanted those things. I’d been lying to myself.

That’s how I got motivated for my Nofap brain recovery. With that motivation, I started getting my life together.

After I started NoFap I also rewired my brain to get pleasure from activities that used to feel boring. I felt more motivated to do those activities.

For example, while I was addicted to PMO, I’d feel the urge to distract myself with PMO every time I sat down to work. That’s because I taught my brain knew this was a reliable source of pleasure.

But now I felt motivated to fight that distraction. My brain went, “Okay, now I can’t get pleasure from distractions. Where do I get it?”

And the answer was, “Work and other productive activities!”

I didn’t need to get distracted to feel pleasure anymore. I felt motivated to get it by doing something productive instead.

Accomplishing small goals started to give me pleasure. Especially now that I also increased the number of dopamine receptors.

That’s one of the best NoFap benefits because it makes a passionate life possible.


Benefit 3: Get creative

My client was lying in his bed the other night and felt bored.

A perfect situation for wanking, right?

He called me for support and I reminded him that we’re the most creative when we’re horny.

I told him to use this life force for something creative rather than letting PMO be the outlet.

As a result, he sat down at his computer to work on a problem he had been trying to solve for 2.5 years.

His Ubuntu virtual machine had a size of 320 GB while the actual size of files in it was just 25 GB.

And it was causing trouble because the daily backup took about 8 hours instead of 30 minutes.

And that night, he solved this problem!

He realized that he could mount his entire system to a specific folder to find out why it occupied so much space.

And he was able to see where the hidden files were.

They were in a folder where the other folder was mounted and that was why he couldn’t see them.

By finding and deleting this folder, he solved the problem.

It sounds weird that he was horny but ended up fixing his Ubuntu.

But that’s the power of creativity that we get from rechanneling sexual energy.

He went to bed excited about the NoFap benefits he had reaped and slept satisfied.


Benefit 4: Feel in control of your life

Stopping the regret that I felt after masturbating was the best thing among the No Fap benefits for me.

I would hate myself after fapping.

The regret of wasted time, struggle, guilt, wasted energy, and shame dragged me down.

And what did I do it for?

It could never make me really happy. It was only a quick escape of instant gratification.

What made me happy was finding the strength to quit my addiction.

Stopping all those painful feelings made me feel in control.

And feeling in control meets one of my 6 fundamental human needs—the need for certainty. I love the sensation of comfort and stability in my body.


Benefit 5: You no longer objectify women

Porn is a fantasy that doesn’t have much in common with real-life sexual relationships.

Actresses and models look so good that real women seem unattractive compared to them.

That’s why you are perverted and need women to be as attractive as models to feel anything.

You feel dead all the time.

But after you say “No PMO,” everything changes.

For example, you start enjoying physical contact with a girl.


You realize that physical contact is so much better than watching porn.

But don’t feel entitled to getting a girlfriend just because this is one of the expected benefits of No Fap.

Yes, you’ll able to carry conversations better which could lead to success with women.

But remember that other things—hygiene, clothing, physical traits, or social skills—all play a role.

Benefit 6: Your relationship with a girlfriend gets better

After quitting fapping, you feel much more attracted to your partner.

You appreciate her not just for her physical beauty but for her inner world as well.

You enjoy things like:

  • Holding hands
  • Long conversations
  • Taking a walk in a park
  • Planning and dreaming together

That’s one of the best NoFap benefits—enjoying women at a whole new level.

Pornography is a joke compared to it.


Benefit 7: You help others (and strengthen your own commitment)

Do you like virtuous cycles?

When you’re on NoFap, you engage in one, and here’s how:

You help other men as they struggle.

And when you contribute to others in terms of NoFap motivation, you feel great about yourself.

Moreover, by seeing other people’s mistakes and pleas for help, your own struggles fade.

That’s because you’re focused on providing them advice and not letting them fail.

By doing so, you reinforce your own commitment to NoFap.

Help others with the same problem woman on ladder

Benefit 8: Face challenges instead of escaping pain temporarily

A coach Richard Harris shares why he believes NoFap is legit.

He says his ability to tackle challenges improved immensely.

Richard felt vital energy inside him that he was able to convert into the resolve to do important work.

And as one of the NoFap benefits, he had a breakthrough in his business.

He used this energy in other areas of life as well:

See, when you’re addicted to PMO, every time you face a challenge, you feel tired.

Escaping the challenge by fapping seems like the best idea ever.

But when you’re done, your energy and resolve are even lower.

With that said, when you go NoFap, you don’t need an escape from challenges.

You save the energy that you would previously waste masturbating.

With a lot of energy available to you, you sit there and tackle the challenge.


Benefit 9: Do more in ten minutes porn-free than in entire hours addicted

Another benefit of stopping PMO is getting more productive.

My client couldn’t get things done and beat himself up for it.

But now that he’s porn-free, he gets more done than he would sometimes in entire days as an addict.

He started with simple things such as new ways of cleaning his room and doing dishes to be more productive!

Eventually, time became easier to manage.

As he gained momentum, he felt motivated to make the most out of his time every day.

Try this for yourself and you’ll create a porn-free, productive daily regimen.


Benefit 10: Live a passionate life

Benefit 11: Sleep less and better

A client shared this experience:

I am waking up earlier and earlier. This is a record, I am waking up at 3 a.m. by myself on a Saturday.

This is a common thing on NoFap. You need less sleep. You wake up well-rested. Your mind is clear. You have high productivity during the day.

I believe there are two factors for this benefit.

First, when you do PMO, you get an ejaculation hangover. It makes you sluggish, sleepy, and motivated. You need more sleep to recover.

Second, on NoFap, your mind is more clear. You don’t have guilt, shame, or any other dark thoughts. With that state of mind, recovery during sleep is faster and more effective.


How do I survive 90 days of NoFap?

Here’s how you need to change your perspective to ensure NoFap success.

I have a client who had a NoFap relapse this week. He was looking at Instagram models.

What’s wrong with that? Nothing other than within minutes, he went to porn and jerking off.

My question to him was, “Who is your role model?” It was Jordan Peterson.

My next question was, “Would Jordan Peterson watch girls on Instagram?” He said, “No.”

If you want 100% NoFap success rate, you need to have a positive role model. Someone who inspires you to be the best version of yourself.

And then do what your role model does. Not what he doesn’t do.

He probably wakes up early and meditates. He eats healthy and is super productive during the day. He sleeps well and a lot.

He doesn’t waste time on meaningless activities. He doesn’t waste his body energy. He doesn’t replace real sex with online images.

This is key to NoFap success. Do things that matter most. Stay away from wasteful activities like porn and jerking off.

How long does it take to get the benefits of No Fap?

My first two weeks of NoFap were very difficult, but then it got easier. It felt like going downhill.

30 days was my second milestone. At that point, I felt in control and very motivated. I think it takes about 30 days to see a lot of benefits of No Fap already.

With all the momentum I developed, it was quite easy for me to go to 60 days. This was when I felt my brain rewired from porn almost completely. At 60 days, this bad habit was pretty much gone.

And at 90 days, I hated porn. No more urges to watch it. I rewired it completely.

This is not to say that my NoFap journey was easy. When I was healing my brain from porn, I knew I had to be patient. I just knew that it takes time to get rid of a bad habit.

I had to put in tons of commitment, especially when my brain turned on NoFap depression.

But it’s doable. And the earlier you start it, the better. I did it at 31. You can be smarter than me and do it now.

Do it now ❗

But Coach… I don’t want to wait that long!

Look, the benefits of No Fap don’t come quickly.

You trained your brain to rely on the quick pleasure of porn for short-term happiness. You are now impatient when it comes to pleasure. You want it now.

Now you start NoFap because you want all the benefits. But you are impatient—you do it for a couple of days and then you relapse.

The mistake is not giving yourself the time to develop something better than short-term happiness. I am talking about the contentment that comes with making the right choice of NoFap.

But here’s the kicker. As with everything worthwhile in life, that contentment takes time to develop.

Be patient. The contentment will come as you get hooked on the benefits of NoFap.

Be strong. You’re stronger than porn or fapping. My heart goes to you.

Does NoFap help clean up karma?

Let me share my three karma examples:

First, I was a jerk to my ex-wife. I watched porn and jerked off behind her back. She got fed up and divorced me.

Second, my porn-watching is another karma example in itself. I watched porn for 17 years.

Even though no one knew about it, I hated myself and I had the fear of being caught. That was bad karma getting me

Finally, my good Karma example. When my grandfather was almost 90, I started to visit him more.

I took care of him and showed my love as much as possible. Even if it meant just sitting beside him, not even talking.

He died a few years later. I know I did the right thing. And that feels good.

This is the feeling of contentment that comes with good karma.

That said, this is exactly what we are doing with NoFap — pursuing long-term contentment instead of short-term pleasure that leave you with bad karma.

  7. I’ve had this problem for about 4 years. I have a passion for working out and I’m also an athlete. But my addiction to porn is keeping me from achieving my goals. It decreases my self esteem, energy, confidence and makes me socially awkward. I start to shy away from what I love to do and watch porn instead. When I first started porn I watched it once a month, then it turned into once a week. Eventually it turned into twice a day. I need you to help me shake this bad habit for good!
