I am not in my 20s anymore and was seeing girls regularly during that time so I was jizzing at least once a week, was also going through a difficult period which was probably inhibating my sex drive.

I think the result of this experiment depends on your age, how often you usually masturbate, your level of addiction to porn, how often you have sex, if you are having other issues in your life...many parameters can impact the result.

Day 34. I had a wet dream. It was surreal. My girl is coming over soon and I will plough her so good. It's not a coincidence that my nofap streak is so long and I started having sex. Sex is the only medicine for my porn addiction.

Day 1. Ready to rid my life of this nasty habit. If there is anyone looking for an accountability partner just pm me. Thanks

Ive gone without fap/ejaculation before, it gives me VERY vivid dreams, feel more rested when waking up, obviously way hornier, more driven, more confident and more "drive for success", more energy.

Damn, I gotta start with it again.

also, when I did it, for some reason after 2-3 weeks I noticed girls giving me alot of glances, not sure why.

On day 24. Higher energy levels, positive thoughts, more morning wood. Its surreal. Will try to get to 90 days

Come on man. Do not try. Not sure how is it for everyone but as for me, counting days never worked. I rather try to forget about the whole thing and live life. Every now and again I look back and notice a month gone, two or three. Now six months gone and it feels alright. I do fantasise although very briefly, falling asleep with a smile.

When the urge comes, just remember what good effects you are experiencing and how pathetic the whole "beating off to porn" is. You could share your secret with your best friend or two and hear their reaction. Mine said they would never endure such a challenge. Makes me feel tougher. Same happened with cold showers.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sterling_archer - 07-12-2018 09:44 AM

There might be something in what Ruslan said. Any time I counted day per day I failed. The longest time I endured (about 60 days) were done with me practically forgetting most of the times I am even doing the challenge. I just didn't fap/watched porn and lived life.

Because of this I uninstalled counting apps and I am just making a mental note to go to my diary each week once and write +7 days on existing previous number. Basically I will count weekly instead of daily.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - semibaron - 07-12-2018 05:39 PM

Numbers don't matter here. You want to get clean. Saying you have reached 90 days, puts you automatically in the state of "ok, now I can give myself a little porn reward".

Get rid off it and never think about it again. Also stop using Instagram and Tinder, which are just the same poison.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Lucky - 07-16-2018 07:24 PM

Re-started this challenge last month.

Just hit 30 days.

This is the 4th(?) time I've done this. First time I went 27 days, second time went 30 days, third time went 60~ days.

Shooting for 90.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Alpha_Ambitionz - 07-17-2018 11:56 AM

I started nofap 7 days ago, and it's been incredibly difficult so far.

The mornings are always the hardest. I'll wake up and I'll be extremely horny.

It's good that I have work. It forces me to get out of bed, and outside.

The worse is the weekends, because I don't have to rush anywhere when I wake up, so I'll just lie around in bed, and this is when the horniness really settles in.

Here are some methods that I find help curb the cravings:

1. Meditation

There's lots of good meditation apps you can download on your phone (e.g., headspace, calm, insight timer).

Guided meditations on youtube are good as well (I like The Honest Guys the most).

The key to meditation is to notice when your mind starts wandering (e.g., thinking about porn), acknowledging the thoughts in a nonjudgmental manner, and then gently releasing them.

So the next time that you feel like you can't resist anymore, just sit down comfortably, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Use a guided meditation for help if you prefer.

2. Starting an accountability journal on the nofap or yourbrainonporn forums.

There's a whole lot of support on these sites, and you can create a journal to hold yourself accountable.

Make sure you update your journal daily, taking note of the thoughts and feelings that pervade your brain as you proceed through this journey.

Hearing other peoples' success stories is also very encouraging.

3. Reading the book, Your Brain on Porn

This book uses science and testimonials to demonstrate the destructiveness of porn.

You realize that putting the porn away is really a game-changer when it comes to "fixing" your life (in every single aspect).

Seriously, whenever you're craving, just pick up this book, and within a few minutes, you'll almost be repulsed by porn.

4. Exercising

This is an obvious one. Feeling horny? Well, just hull your ass to the gym, and transform that tension into something productive.

Persisting Through

Ever since I started this challenge, I've realized how addicted to porn I really am. Like seriously, I'll go through mornings where all I do is replay a porn scene in my head. It's absolutely horrible.

I joined this forum so that I could better my life and lose my virginity, and I know that successfully ridding porn is just one of the things that I'll have to do.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sbideo - 07-17-2018 01:44 PM

9 Days. Recording here to get some accountability going. I have done some gym sessions in the morning before work, which has been good so far.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Stonk - 07-17-2018 04:07 PM

I took the advice of the guys on the forum and quit being preoccupied with days. Just quit and move on.

On avoiding a relapse...

1. Quit social media. Well, not totally, by at least cut down your your online presence. Apps like Facebook and Instagram are littered with very alluring photos that could initiate a long chain of reactions that could lead to a relapse. Best to avoid the temptress. .

2. Get busy. Sigmund Freud rightly theorized that our repressed sexual energy is being channelled into our productive work.. Get productive, get busy!. An idle mind is the devil's workshop.

3. Use positive affirmations. Yep. They work. I don't know exactly how, but its usually along the lines of "Reprogramming your subconscious mind". Repeating phrases like 'I'm not a masturbator', 'I don't indulge in deviant behaviours like porn' rewires our minds to not gravitate to such activities. Whenever the urge comes, your subconscious mind subliminally instructs you to disregard such feelings as they run contrary to your programming setup.
Say out loud, use note cards or write in your notepad positive affirmations. They work wonders.

These three rudimentary tips are enough to help you abstain for such deviant behaviour.

Goodluck pals!

... as long as you're not 'calendar watching'.

I've detailed some of my own success earlier in this thread. Last year I decided to mark the fap days with a red circle, new bangs with an orange circle, and repeat bangs with a blue circle.

The last red circle was late January 2017.

I'm currently sitting on over 500 days, and I have no intention of going back (I've got a data sheet in the works regarding some of the changes I've gone through, I just need to find the time to sit down and commit to finishing it).

I'm a visual man (as I imagine there are others here that are the same way). Being able to look back and visually see that I've gone so many days without NPNP is a positive reinforcement. For some, it's the kind of thing that pushes you to go farther. Especially when you (I) compare the lack of red circles to the number of orange and blue circles from month to month.

Regardless of the number, X days NPNF is a milestone for anyone. And on some level, it's important to acknowledge that milestone.

The difference is in how you reward yourself.

Quick question guys. I had a bad marriage around age 20 and got into porn. I've been addicted 18 years now and I have noticeably reduced sensation in regular sex. Has anybody resolved this issue after so long... or am I just screwed?

BTW... it feels weird to talk about this. It has been a huge secret my entire adult life.

Read the book, Your Brain on Porn.

There's tons of testimonials in that book about guys who cured their "reduced sensation" by ridding porn from their lives.

To be honest, I trust the guys here on the forum more than testimonials in a book. However, I will read it. Maybe I'm coming up with excuses not to try, but it's been nearly 20 years... It may not be fixable.

Yes, it can be fixed, but you MUST not masturbate, ejaculate, or watch any porn (or porn substitutes like instagram, bikini pics, etc) for a minimum of 90 days with zero interruption.
You brain & dick needs a 3 month break to heal itself.

Wait, I thought sex was allowed, basically no masturbation and no porn...we must not ejaculate at all? So no sex as well?

You can have sex, but if really have penile tissue damage it's better for your recovery if you don't.

If you have a wife, girlfriend or regular plate, then make sure she doesn't give you a handjob or jerk you off. The inner tissue needs time to relax and heal.

Guys like this are probably suffering from porn induced "death grip" which is when you masturbate harder and tighter with your hand for many years killing inner penile tissue sensitivity.

Makes sense, No sex and no fap for 3 months is a different level of challenge though.

It's day 43, this is the longest I have ever gone. I will give you guys some inspiration. This is sad to say but it's honest. Before this streak I would jack off twice a day to porn and my dick was bruised and limp. I felt so braindead during this time I thought it was too late to recover and that I was screwed for life, I have been addicted to porn since I was around 13 so for nearly 7 years. My dopamine receptors were burnt out and nothing in life could excite me. I watched porn to fill my void.

On day 20 or so I started having sex, I lost my v card and it was the best thing I have ever done. Recently I have been having sex on the regular, my mind is healing, my dick healed and my sex drive is roaring. I am free of acne, my body looks good even though I haven't been to the gym in a month.

I think getting a girlfriend and/or having sex is the cure to porn addiction, it took me a long time but I know what I need to do to stay healthy, both for my mind and body.

This is off topic but...Mikestar, Weren’t you commenting in the London thread and saying how good Greenwich is for daygame? And today you say that you recently lost your v card? How can you say a spot is good if at the time you were a virgin?

Nothing personal and nothing against virgins but this makes me question the feedbacks of many posters as we see more and more virgins making datsheets and giving good spots for game. It’s like a guy who never touched a basketball but wanna teach you how to shoot.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Mikestar - 07-20-2018 07:51 AM

Lino - I fully understand. When I was a virgin I was still actively gaming, getting numbers, make-outs but never got the lay. I think through my posts even when I didn't get laid I still provided value and that my information was accurate, it's been a learning experience. There are many posters who post datasheets of places they didn't get laid in, does that mean they shouldn't post it?

I am not questioning your will to add value but you’ll realise over the time that the perspective of a guy who is experienced in getting laid is infinitely more valuable than the one of a virgin, simply because things are still theoric for the virgin.

I am not saying a virgin shouldn’t post datasheets but he should at least mention that he has a very limited experience, on this forum we have a bunch of members with hundreds of lays, they can be unlucky in certain locations but their feedbck is still valuable because they can put things in perspective and compare to their previous experiences, I am sure you get my point.

Anyway, congrats for losing your v card and happy that it solved some issues and made you feel better.
