Might be related to other thigns in your life, but for me, yes, depression was there as part of the using of porn/trying to quit.

YES

(Can be quite common)

Can last up to 3 months depending on how damaged your brain is from porn and masturbation.

That’s a tough one, way harder than no fap for me.


If you quit sugar you will find your willpower to resist both masturbation and the urge to watching porn greatly increased.
Regular sugar in your diet makes you much weaker to resisting tempation.

I fell off the wagon a few months back after a couple years of no porn. I think it was partly due to getting a little bored with sex in my current relationship. Now that my gf got a job in another city I've gotta completely cut this stuff out again and just get outside and walk around more, use the freedom I've got. No more edging, no porn, no sexting chicks, 1 short session a week if it gets to an emergency.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sbideo - 08-15-2018 04:13 AM

31 Days. My longest stretch so far.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Stonk - 08-15-2018 05:09 AM

8+ weeks. I'm surprised I've lasted this long.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - EvilStoic - 08-17-2018 02:51 PM

That's it, i'm deleting Instagram.

This stuff is harder than I thought.

I used to fap to porn a lot for years, this was before I discovered game and started to get laid. Since then I gradually reduced it to the point where I now haven't watched porn in probably 2 years. This happened "naturally", I wasn't aware of any no fap thing. I have no desire to watch porn again so there's that.

However I still do occasionally fap and a few months ago, I realized that I sometimes "replace" porn by images of "real" girls I see on social media. Which is basically the same thing; not good. Even though some of them are past bangs.

So I then started to phase that out too and only use imagination when fapping. And then finally started to reduce fapping at all, to the point where I do it maybe twice a month.

The thing is: when I am with a girl, I have no problem at all to not fap. In fact, banging feels absolutely awesome compared to when I did fap.

It's during relatively dry times when I struggle. Around 7-8 days after my last nut I start getting restless and horny as fuck. Everything with a vagina becomes bangable.

If I don't have access to a girl and fail to find something, I tend to say fuck it and get it over with myself. Especially in cases where I got close to getting laid, but failed.

I know all of this has been covered in this thread already, and I have read the last 50 or so pages. Just chiming in with some of my observations here.

I've come a long way already and I am not too concerned about my fapping behaviour, since it's nowhere near the volume I used to do. But I now realize how incredibly hard it is to keep abstaining.

Good job everyone here who's on a long streak.

Does it count as fapping if a girl puts her teddies in your face and you finish yourself off?


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Celestial - 08-19-2018 07:29 AM

Messed up again, hopping on the bandwagon again. I'm not gonna stop trying until I quit this forever.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Fillip - 08-19-2018 10:27 AM

I'm also on board with no porn. I'm trying to follow the Paleo lifestyle as much as possible: diet, exercise, etc.

Tuesday makes it 9 weeks for me.. Forward is the battlecry!

If by teddies you mean titties, I'd say no. Actually if she's putting some kind of lingerie in your face for some reason, still no. Basically if there's a girl there, doesn't count.

4 full days , my record so far.

I tried the whole porn abstinence deal, its over rated. If you jerking off every single day to porn, and get to the point where you cant sleep unless you do it, then it becomes a problem.

Once every few days or once a week is perfectly fine and isn't going to harm you.

No porn crusade is just as bad as the no carb diet.

A commenter on ROK once said that porn is like ice cream. It's OK to indulge once in a while, but if you do it every day you have a problem. I thought that was a good analogy.

I masturbated a shit ton over the past year. Like multiple times a day. It's gotten to a point where I am a complete addict.

Here are some of the feelings I've had over the past year because of over-masturbation:

1) Dramatically reduced sexual interest. I've barely approached
2) Extremely tired and somewhat depressed.
3) Impulsive need for sugary/fatty food that will give me dopamine highs

Today, I say fuck it. I'm done with masturbation. Goal is to completely stop.

Glad this thread has been started.

No. if there are pheromones involved and real titts then it's no different than her jacking you off. In fact, her technique would be worse anyway.

Back to square one. Again. For the nth time.

Relapsed today. Situations where I notice the urge to do so:
- after an intense workout
- whenever I'm alone and have my hand down my pants
- boredom

The best things in life are worth fighting for. Will stand up and dust it off.
