Congratulations guys !
Give us a bit more details how you managed to stay clean for so many days. What methods did you use that worked, and how did you resist temptations ?
Also, were you banging chicks during that time or not ?
Finally, list all the mental and physical symptoms (good and bad) you have had so far.


Dudes here who are struggling or keep relapsing need to know how you managed, and why it's worth it.

Big congrats to the guys above.

Been having 2 week or so streaks and then dropping the ball again. Getting back on it, day 1.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Ruslan - 04-01-2018 10:39 AM

Thank you gents.

I have had many long streaks in the past 3 years. The longest was from may until october last year. I wrote about it earlier in this thread, that I relapsed because of flatlining; did not feel spikes in mood nor horniness. Kept clean until Xmas time when I let my guard down. Drunk a bit of booze, watched TV, went parties etc. Then with a new year I DECIDED: no more. Started to recall the time when I became intermediate lurker of this forum (registered half a year after, during the Roosh vs. Canada event). I was out of 5 years beta relationship at the time, went to gym, ate clean, slept a lot. I became a different person in a span of several months. Then came an injury of lower abdominals and I descended back into old habits. It became my inner fight from that time. Periods of discipline mixed with short periods of weakness.
This year I thought extensively about myself. I found that I was not able to emulate my first success because I was always slacking in some regard. When I worked out, went on no fap then lacked sleep. When I did not lack sleep, I ate ice-cream for a supper, and so on.
Right now I KNOW I have all elements right. Whenever I think about sex (usually when I go to sleep) I force my mind to think about God. I just pray giving thanks. It makes me smile until this day; because I went through a horrible relationship and searched for PUA forum, I found Roosh. After getting satiated with man/woman stuff I started to read other subjects on this forum. Then I started to look for God.
Thank you Roosh, and everyone else that contributed to this forum. Not sure where I would be if not you.
I did not bang any women since relationship, so can not say how it goes with no fap. I found that going monk mode helps a lot(not thinking, not hoping, not chasing after sex). Just do not think about sex. If I do, I just say to myself: "it is just sex", and I am taking it off from pedestal. Being a believer, prayer helps. I still do look at women around though. But I am more conscious about it. I am in control.

Good symptoms:

-better mood (sometimes feels like high really)
-lots of energy (lifting 4 times a week, b-ball 1 time, football 1 time, I am 40 by the way)
-more awareness; physical, mental and spiritual
-that feeling when you see the face of your friend when you tell them you did not masturbate for 3 months, same goes for ass cold showers, although some people are not that surprised about it

Bad symptoms:

-can not think about any

All in all, everything starts from thought. If you masturbate your brain about masturbation, you will masturbate.
Do not give up. Be strong. Take control of yourself.
Stay blessed.

Ruslan congrats on your success. What is holding you back from sleeping with women?


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Ruslan - 04-02-2018 03:58 AM

^^ I do not plan on establishing a family, therefore I would rather abandon the idea of sex altogether. I do not feel good when chasing sex just for sex. Not a player definitely.

12 days. I forgot how much energy this gives me.
Have been in the gym or working out at home nearly every day!
Can't be a coincidence.

Been in the challenge for one month and it's been really worth it. Erections seem to be stronger and my libido has skyrocketed. For years I've always had issues with delayed ejaculation and last week I nearly blasted inside a girl and that feels awesome. Porn and masturbation can really harm a man's ability to enjoy real sex with real women.

No fap challenge restarted

Day 27


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - The Stronger Sex - 04-03-2018 12:17 PM

Did all you all non-fappers have pre-existing problems like low libido and low energy? I'm not going through something like that if ain't nothing broke in the first place...

Some do, some don't...

It doesn't really matter.
The point is to break an addiction.
If you can't go a month without masturbatng, you are addicted, and that addiction controls you, more than you control yourself.

About 3 weeks in. Today is one of the only times I have been challenged to abstain. I am at home, doing homework, already was at the gym. It is a shitty and rainy day out. But I still am persisting. Thought it was an interesting contrast from when I started a streak for the first time where everyday was an overarching challenge.

Another observation is that I have started to get more(and embrace) sexual dreams. Kind of an encouragement that my mind is starting to make scenarios for itself instead of porn taking that role, feels much more natural. Really everything about this feels more natural. I feel better in everyday life, in the gym, during cardio, etc. The only difficult time is during downtime.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - ShotgunUppercuts - 04-03-2018 07:32 PM

Dreams have been more vivid

Not sexual either like this past weeken i had a dream that i discovered some old muscle cars that were turned into gassers. Remembered a 70 road runner that was white and rusty and a black ford flacon

Damn i wish that was real.

Day 123?

Stay strong folks.

There is nothing wrong with not wanting to raise a family. However I think you are missing out on very rewarding experiences by abandoning women all together.

Mystery said it best there are three areas of your life you need to focus on strive to maintain balance, Health, Wealth and Relationships. If one or more are neglected with will affect the others negatively.

Day 30...What a day to get a wet dream..sign of healing!


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Bushido - 04-05-2018 12:31 PM

Back to Day 1. Let's just say special circumstances led me to watch something.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - ShotgunUppercuts - 04-10-2018 07:49 PM

Dreaded coming back. I ended my streak on 126 days. 22 days more than my last one. After like the third week this time around i didnt feel anything happened other that the deeper voice.


Anywho, starting over. I got a guitar to play with during idle time so im looking forward to that.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sterling_archer - 04-11-2018 03:45 AM

Very interesting dream tonight. Dream has its own plot like they do but at one moment I am dreaming I am going to toilet to fap (that was my usual routine in times before discovering this challenge). So I whip it out and start to fap, but I suddenly stop after short time. I am "thinking" during dream that this is wrong and I pull my pants up and go out. There is some older woman and she taps me on the shoulder and proudly says something like "Good job! You resisted." Dream stops short time after.

If that is not an interesting dream, I don't know what it is!

Last friday hit 20 days which is the longest ive gone for since last summer, I looked alive. Then when I came back from holiday I keep on relapsing. I feel like a slave to this shit, only when I go abroad I do nofap well and at home its the hardest urge, I need to fix up.

Looking back, I definitely noticed that as well.

I never masturbate when I'm travelling, I don't even have the urge.
There's just too many things to do, places to explore and new experiences to be made. I'm always out and about, I go to bed tired and happy, go through the events of the day in my mind again and make plans for tomorrow, then in the morning I wake up looking forward to another great day, jump out of bed and get going.

In a similar way, I also don't think about jerking off when I'm at home and really busy with work and life, spending time with my family and meeting friends, exercising and spending time on hobbies that require you to leave your place and interact with other people, as opposed to things you can do alone at home.

So I found out that temptation pretty much only strikes when I'm alone at home and bored, having too much free time and no intrinsic or extrinsic motivation to do anything worthwhile. It's also seasonal, autumn and winter is a lot worse than spring and summer.

Another noteworthy observation is that the urge to masturbate or consume pornographic material of any kind completely disappears if I'm in a committed relationship with a girlfriend, but not if I'm spinning a few plates, dating and having FWBs.

At least for me, since I can't speak for other people, masturbation seems to be the canary in the coal mine that there's something wrong about my life, about the way I live it. That something is out of balance, and I need to make some changes. Because whenever I am happiest and living life to its fullest, it's a non-issue.
Think about that one for a second and compare it to your own experience.

Masturbation/Porn is the symptom, not the cause. Fighting the symptom is, in the long run, futile and bound to result in disappointment and relapse down the road.
You have to find out what the cause is, fix it, and then the problem will take care of itself.

In the "book your brain on porn" it has been mentioned that lots of frequent sex leads to big dopamine surges that might trigger chaser effect, where you are like a rabid dog, wanting to watch porn and masturbate all the time till you cut it.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Mikestar - 04-11-2018 08:08 AM

@Belgrano that is exactly how I feel. I think the cause is me wanting to become someone better in life in every single way so I can live the life I dream about, this takes effort and whilst I take steps towards it I also take a step back by watching porn giving me instant gratification. So what can help me here, keeping busy all the time and socialising and maybe getting a girlfriend?

There might be something to this theory.
