I've tried this a few times and could never get past a week. I literally couldnt concentrate on anything else and my standards would fly out the window especially when drinking. My goal is just to regulate it more, maybe keep it to Mon-Wed only. Give myself enough time to ramp up for the weekend.

8 weeks tomorrow

I actually just got done going 100+ days. I quit a couple weeks ago. At one point during the beginning, I purposely went a month with no sex either.

Honestly, the only time I noticed a big difference was when I wasn't getting off at all...I was a fucking beast and always had tons of energy but I was also miserable and pretty much delirious. Mood swings like crazy.

I do notice that I often stay hard after the first round of sex and can transition more easily into round 2 but I also cum quicker on the first round.

It was probably worth trying just to show myself I could do it but other than that, I don't think I got much out of it. I did it to help fight fatigue and concentration issues but I've benefited more from eating healthier, more vitamins, etc.

I can't remember if I made it to 14 days but I think I made it to 13 and I'm sure I watched some porn though unsure if I fapped before or right after the 14 day mark. So averall mission failed.

I'm still going to draw some tentative conclusions:

- When I stopped fapping/watching porn my will to approach went up. I probably made around 25 day time cold approaches during this time. This leads me to believe that the no fap/porn practise can be an important aspect in Game. I can sometimes feel a strong urge and inspiration to go after hot chicks, but then fap, only for this urge to disappear or be reduced. I suspect it is necessary to stay off the porn and fapping in order to maintain the motivation and discipline.

- I also felt an increased lust for life in general. I think porn and fapping drains you of this in slow motion.

I saw two unwelcome side effects:

-I lowered my standards somewhat which is a bit disappointing looking back as I haven't had the problem of "buyer's remorse" since my heavy drinking days around 10 years ago. I didn't bang anyone though, so not that much harm done really.

-My neediness increased (which was unfortunate since I've made enourmous improvements in these respects in the last year of so).

I think both these side effects may be temporary though, or at least they can be overcome.

Next step is like other have said, to regulate it and keep it at an acceptable "level". If I do another longer challenge I will announce it here, it can't be harmful with accountability I think.

Well, I'm a believer.

6 weeks without porn and 3 weeks without masturbating, and last night I had my first wet dream. Like, ever. I woke up and looked it up on Wikipedia because I felt like I had cheated on the NoFap thing somehow, and one particular sentence caught my eye.

"In a 1998 study by Robby C, the number of boys reporting nocturnal emissions drastically increased as their testosterone doses were increased, from 17% of subjects with no treatment to 90% of subjects at a high dose.[6]"

This goes along with everything else I've been feeling. I'm more alert, more confident, I lift more, and I'm much more sexual. I'm positive my testosterone is at an all time high, and this confirmed it.

Plus my sexual fantasies don't involve crazy perverted shit anymore, because I'm not watching porn all the time.

Before you knock it, try it. That's my only advice.

One interesting effect after going 27 days without porn or masturbation: I can now masturbate to completion using my left hand, something I've never been able to do before.

Welcome to the dark side.....

I almost done 9 weeks without masturbating for the first time in years but i had to masturbate the other day.

Im back on this mission, 2 days without fappping so far.

Lol guys, epic mission. Having hard time keeping off of it myself, a girl with high sex drive helps


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Architekt - 10-12-2012 12:25 AM

Still going. Mood swinging like fuck atm, but I'm not sure if that's related to not fapping?

Some great achievements of this thread Wink:

Sign me up.

I want the benefits of a no porn/no fantasy masturbation lifestyle.

My 90th day is January 9th. I'll be diligent in my efforts to stomp this porn demon for good.

Wish me luck.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Architekt - 10-12-2012 06:02 AM

December 10th will be my 90th I think. Not sure how far I'll go, but I'm 1 whole month in now.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Captain Ahab - 10-17-2012 09:34 AM

Fucked up and wacked it last night...only after four days.

Oh well, one day at a time.

New Date: January 15th.

I installed a porn blocker and am rocking a rubber band on my wrist to snap the sexual fantasy out of my system.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - presidentcarter - 10-17-2012 10:02 AM

Let's try this again. I keep relapsing after a week. Determined to make 30 days.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - slubu - 10-17-2012 12:14 PM

132 days. It's getting very hard. I now fantasize about fapping...like when I will do it, where I will be, the porn I will watch, etc. Not sure how much longer I can hold out. Everything makes me super hard these days. I have banged a lot more girls since I started this though so there's something to be said for that.

Slubus post reads like a guy with cabin fever writing in his journal just before he snaps.

Keep up man, you doing good. Give up this shit for good.

I will be 2 weeks without fapping in 2 days. I noticed that my sexual performance has improved a lot, now i take way longer to bust.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Cr33pin - 10-18-2012 09:47 PM

UGH... I was 25 days in an just fapped to the internet porn.

This is wack... I need to stick with this for the 90 days... It saddens me to not seem to be strong enuff to make it to 90 days

I started watching porn when I was like 8 or 9, this is before the internets we had it on old school dish TV. I seriously think watching porn so much an from so young has warped my brain some.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Captain Ahab - 10-19-2012 06:19 PM

January 17th for me boys. I had one more left in me. Funny how as soon as I focus on not jerking off I do it more. Whatever. One day at a time.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Andreas - 10-21-2012 06:51 AM

Does it count when you ejaculate involuntarily during sleep?


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Chewbacon - 10-21-2012 08:18 AM

So, has this no-fap thing actually helped your lives in any material way? Do you approach more? Approach with more confidence? Do you have more testosterone in your everyday life? Are you more focused or productive?

I'm genuinely curious. Because if there are no material benefits, this sounds like b.s.
