Introduction NoFap® is a moderated community-centered website that hosts challenges in which users ("Fapstronauts") abstain from pornography and masturbation for a period of time ("rebooting"). Whether your goal is casual participation in a monthly rebooting challenge as a test of self-control, or whether excessive masturbation or pornography has become a problem in your life and you want to quit for a longer period of time, you will find a supportive community and plenty of resources here.

New Fapstronauts

  • Learn about what's going on in your brain. This is important so that you know what to expect during a reboot. Our Porn Addiction 101 page is a great place to get started. NoFap also has a Getting Started guide. This includes information about porn addiction, sexual dysfunctions caused by porn such as "PIED", disinterest in real-world sex, and the inability to experience a partnered orgasm. Our friends over at YBOP have a great introductory video on the subject that we highly recommend watching. If you need something that's shorter, check out this basic video by ASAPScience. For further resources to learn more about porn addiction, see our wiki page for other websites, videos, and resources to help you on your rebooting journey.

  • Learn about the process of abstaining from PMO, also known as "rebooting." If you don't know what to expect from abstaining from porn and masturbation, there are a number of things that might throw you off. Learn about rebooting and how NoFap can help you on NoFap's Rebooting 101 page. It is imperative to learn about concepts such as the "flatline", the "surge", the "chaser effect", and more. Please get educated and don't enter this daunting process completely blind to what might happen.

  • Get a feel for the community before participating. Afterward, a good first step is to share your story with us. Post a new thread.

  • This forum is for men and women - the only requirements are being a human and wanting to develop healthier sexual habits.

  • Get an accountability partner, someone who will hold you accountable during your reboot. Post a thread here or on the forums.

  • Choose your own reboot. NoFap's Standard Reboot: No edging, no porn, no masturbating. "Hard Mode": No edging, no porn, no masturbating, no orgasming whatsoever. Lite Mode: No porn. For more information on the programs, check out NoFap's Rebooting 101 page.

  • Sign up for a reboot challenge by replying to a the official sign up thread. These are usually "stickied" as the first post or linked on the sidebar. It is up to yourself to remain accountable, although we're working on developing a more motivating solution.

  • If you come across a word or acronym that you don't understand, we have a glossary of terms commonly used in the rebooting community.

  • Obtain a counter next to your name with Tracker.

  • Read our full disclaimer and rules before posting or participating in one of our rebooting challenges.

  • If you are feeling suicidal or want to self-harm, contact a prevention hotline immediately.
