The NoFap reddit website has now reached over 70,000 fapstronauts.
NoFap started out with just a few guys from the “GetMotivated” section of reddit.com. Stemming off of the idea that abstaining from orgasm for a week raises blood serum testosterone levels in men, the original purpose of NoFap was to host weekly and monthly challenges for no higher purpose. The program was simple. We were to simply challenge our willpower to see how long we could last. However, something changed. We started quickly realizing that we were experiencing tremendous benefits from completely cutting out porn out of our lives. We started out with just a few people trying to get motivated and soon grew to over one hundred fapstronauts. Then a thousand. Then five thousand. Every milestone that we reached was surprising to me. Suddenly porn addicts started flooding in because the NoFap program worked for them.
I never expected NoFap to reach so many people. I didn’t know how many people are harmed by pornography and were looking for a solution. This issue was on the tip of everybody’s tongue, we just gave it a name. I never thought that NoFap would be a project that would improve so many people’s lives and it warms my heart to see how many people are experiencing tangible benefits from it.
Here are some of NoFap’s other Fapstronaut milestones:

Thank you to the entire community, and of course my fellow moderators, for making NoFap what it is today. NoFap truly hosts one of the most supportive communities in the world and it wouldn’t be the helpful and life-changing place that it is every one of the 70,000 Fapstronauts that it hosts.
