I myself went through the nofap journey and found that most of this is a lie. You will not become a superman and as wealthy as Elon musk by stopping masturbating.
But what exactly it does is it helps you with addiction.
Masturbation addiction is a real thing and this habit can potentially impact your motivation self-esteem and happiness. Masturbation can increase dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitter released which stimulates the reward pathway in the brain. Constant masturbation leads to the constant release of serotonin and dopamine which leads to our brain becoming desensitized to normal levels. To be specific neurotransmitters in our brain require a higher level of dopamine and serotonin to attain normal levels of happiness then. That's we would like to masturbate more often to feel happy. And if we masturbate we also end up consuming some time that can be used for something which might grow us as a human.
We should focus on getting rid of the addiction rather than looking for unscientific benefits.
