Day 10.

Havent masturbated nor had any release since getting laid on day 7. However, I looked at porn today and shared a few videos on a porn site - so not ideal. I'm seeing my date on day 14 so I will manage to hold out I think, but I am white knuckling it.

One thing I did not understand well. If Semen is this spectacular life force, and it does seem to be, why does the body expel it after a while if you do not discharge it? Shouldn't it be reabsorbed? I know old semen is a thing and that must be adressed too, but what do you guys think? It makes little sense to have your body pushing out this thing.

I've read it is indeed reabsorbed into the blood stream and then used as building material for nerves and the brain, as the semen is similar in structure to the brain.
Semen is the seventh dhatu, if not wasted, it is transformed into the eighth dhatu, ojas, which is stored in the brain. And preserving semen is essential for meditators, as without this raw food one cannot attain any form of self-realization.

So cum is the food for brain?

Well yes I know it is reabsorbed, what I mentioned was within the context of Wet Dreams, where your body cums on it's own. I've also read some Indian guru or whatever saying wet dreams don't really count since it's much less sperm counts than the usual sperm ejections. Said it's mostly prostatic fluid.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sterling_archer - 09-13-2018 11:25 AM

Wet dream = not an relapse

Don't worry about it.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - redbeard - 09-13-2018 02:16 PM

I don't think physiological it's the literal semen retention that improves the mind, rather the psychological results of channeling your sexual energy correctly.

Almost 21 years old no ejaculation besides wet dreams(virgin, never watched porn or jerked off). Get wet dreams couple times a month and sometimes even smanage to stop those because I don't want to change the sheets.

Good, I’ll use that line on chicks to convince them to swallow when they BJ Smile

Today is the official day I pledge to not watch porn. I am moving to a foreign country tomorrow and will be sleeping in the same room as other people for a few weeks - I always watch porn at night so now it won’t be possible. Usually when I go abroad I don’t even fap so it’s good to get out of my comfort environment

Good time to use this change of scenery to build momentum with this challenge. Just be careful not to watch porn on your cell phone or jerk off in the bathroom. Use this as a time to go get some pussy.

Day 16 for me today.

I've only orgasmed a few times to sex these past few weeks. I've looked at porn in the past 2 weeks but just didn't act on it.

So far I am feeling really good.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Celestial - 09-16-2018 09:06 AM

Hit the one week mark. Noticing a slight improvement in libido, but nothing crazy.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - trippin_squares - 09-21-2018 10:45 PM

Haven't fapped in at least six months. After a while you just don't miss it. Also it may be due to the fact that it's been even longer since my last bang and that I've barely tried getting myself out there and going after girls in that time.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sterling_archer - 09-22-2018 01:45 AM

So no fap for six months and no sex for even more? Very impressive self control but still dude, you must go out there.

Turns out there is a beetle that confuses certain beer bottles for females and ends up exhausting itself in fruitless 'mating'.


What does this remind you of?

Day 60 here. I don’t feel much different to be honest


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Mikeyd03 - 09-22-2018 11:08 AM

Porn free for over a month. Not an expert, but this has been my longest streak in a while. A couple of insights:

1. The identity level shift: You truly have to say to yourself "I am not the type of person that watches porn". Whether that makes you cringe or not...this has been effective for me.

2. An accountability group: I have 3 guys I message on whatsapp and we all had the same goal. Quit porn. It has been a tremendous benefit to have guys to check in with when I am feeling weak. Think of it as outsourcing of monitoring yourself. I read something powerful the other day, "Public information is far more powerful than information kept to yourself." This is especially true in regards to your goals. An accountability group is the perfect way to "go public" with your goal of staying porn free.

3. You have to replace the destructive habits with new ones: I have started to explore some new hobbies. Copy writing/python....whatever floats your boat. I view the elimination of destructive habits like porn as foundation to build myself up stronger.

4. Take it one day at a time. It has made things much easier to frame my efforts as "one day at a time" as opposed to "I must not do this for 6 months". You don't build a wall over night, you just lay one brick at a time...and soon you will have a wall.

Those are just a few things that have helped me. Check out some of the Terry Crews videos on youtube as well. Although very blue pill in regards to women he is spot on with how porn is an insidious habit. Your drive to reproduce is perhaps your strongest biological prerogative as man...fuck wasting it on pixels.

Great stuff. Keep going! Banana

I’m doing this again, but this time I’m going to fully commit to it. Especially quitting porn. Do you guys think I can get away with fapping occasionally if I don’t get laid for a while?

I’ve made it a few weeks twice before but I wasn’t really taking it seriously.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - semibaron - 09-29-2018 07:26 AM

I was ~ 1 and a half year clean and felt really good.

The last week I did the mistake to binge watch porn for several hours for a couple of days. Today is my second day without porn and I have massive headaches. The withdraw symptoms are at least on a level equal to massive caffeine intake.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - redbeard - 09-29-2018 07:38 AM

I've been slacking the past few months. My personal life has been an absolute shitshow, and I've fallen back on using the porn to comfort me.

No more! As of September 25th, I am committing to another year of NoFap & NoPorn.

Let's get it.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - sterling_archer - 09-29-2018 07:56 AM

^Damn! Guys, when even veterans such as redbeard can fall to the porn, you know that this shit is serious and nothing to joke about.

This is some serious stuff, guys.

It's an addiction like no other, and no matter how long you've been on the wagon, it's easy to fall off.

"I'll just have a beer" = "I'll just look at a few instagram girls"

The tricky thing about porn is that one of the best ways to beat it is to stop thinking about it at all, and dial down your sexuality.

However, when you forget about the dangers of porn, it's easy to fall back in. Constant reminders will keep you focused on the prize. So, I'll start being active in this thread again.
