I'm in. Day 0. This shit is killing my vibe.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Tex - 05-27-2016 01:53 PM

I'm gonna do this. Day 1.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - semibaron - 05-27-2016 10:47 PM

4 weeks now.

Can definitely confirm that I flatline right now.
This is really sad because I'm currently staying in Rio for a week.

The finest asses at the beach. I see them with my eyes. They are perfect. Still, no reaction down there...

A side note: Took 50mg of Viagra 1 week ago. Well, I could have done the same performance without...
Since the bloodflow does not seem to be the problem, Viagra does certainly not help.

As I said, I left the caffeine behind too. The first two weeks were very hard. Now I'm feeling much better overall with a higher
energy level. The only thing I can't kill is this small voice asking for the next shot. Craving is a bitch. Let's see where it goes.

Good luck to the rest!

Day 1. Didn't have morning wood today, even though I slept well and eat well... I guess it will come back after a few days

Day 1 for me.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - JohannesAusPrag - 05-30-2016 08:29 AM

I am going to start again, last time I jacked off was yesterday, so today it is day no. 1.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - YoungArt - 05-30-2016 10:20 AM

Little update: I'm on day 5. Keeping myself busy helps. Really want to get "clean" this summer.

I'm skeptical about the whole thing;

The point isn't to be abstinent, but to quit porn addiction. Having sex is healthy. Jerking off once in a while, depending on your sex drive, is healthy.

Most guys nowadays who are single probably get off to porn more often than to real women. It's easier, more convenient, and will never reject you. My goal with this is to remove the association between porn and sexual pleasure. If you've never had a problem with porn, then this wouldn't make sense to you. Just like people who drink in moderation and have never had drinking problems don't really see the need to quit drinking permanently.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - philosophical_recovery - 05-30-2016 01:55 PM

I need to give this another go.

Well said. Porn is the enemy here, not sex/jerking off/ejaculation.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - ginatingles - 05-31-2016 12:09 AM

Day 4. Morning wood came back.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - testos111 - 05-31-2016 05:51 AM

This is gong to be slightly long but I'm sure it's going to help those who are struggling. I'm going to be really open and honest.

I started No Porn No Fap last year on 19th July.

Up till then I had not even imagined that not watching porn was an option. I had just assumed that it was a habit that'll stay with me forever.

That's when I bumped into this thread and YBOP simultaneously.

And BOOM!there was the answer to my frequent inability to get my willy up or ensure that it stayed hard.

I had not even imagined that the reason could be this overload of virtual induced dopamine that was making my brain insensitive day by day. At that point I had been watching porn for 17 years.

So I jumped on the wagon.

But you'd think my story would be smooth? Hell no!

I made it 100 days and I was so sure I won't ever go back TILL......I had a nocturnal emission (wet dream)...i was almost depressed that day. It was like all my hard work and sacrifice had gone in vain.

That frustration made me start watching porn again, this time with a vengeful and crazy intensity. I was back to jerking off too and to make matters worse, the first girl I slept with after this, I was not able to get erect. That night was as low as I've ever felt.

Since then I've had around 15 relapses, with the max. streak being 1 month which was from new years to Januray 31st.

By this April, I really gave up, at least on the no fap front.

And till now even though Ive been using the term "watching porn", it wasn't even that. My habit was worse than simply watching porn. I was addicted (since 5-6 yrs) to highly perverted sexting on Facebook, which as you can imagine, drains you out even more than simply watching porn. And boy does it kill your drive the next morning. Some mornings actually felt like a sexless zombie with annoying headaches and eye-burns.

Whenever I could manage a streak for whatever little time, I felt wonderful and more productive (though sometimes even then I could not get hard..maybe was too short a period to judge). The overall sense of well being when I did not indulge in this self-destructive habit was out of this world. I knew I had to change.

Here's what worked for me since the beginning of May:

1. TAKE ACTION. Do something TANGIBLE to beat your habit rather than just making a promise. I bough a huge ass notebook and wrote down all the things that happened to me when I replased. The headaches, the guilt, the eyes, the zero libido, etc etc..I had around 17 points written and I would read them whenver I thought of indulging again. ( I still did relapse once but it definintely improved by resilience overall)

2. Figure out your TRIGGERS. For me, I noticed that my laptop played a huge part. Whenver I was working on the laptop, I would just sometimes end up watching some porn video and boom!, next thing I had wasted 4 hours sexting and watching porn. However, I never indulged in all this when I was on my smartphone. Facebook was a hughe cuplrit here, so I downloaded the apps on my phone instead of using it on the laptop. I even started checking my mail on the phone. Another trigger was ALCOHOL. Almost 70% of my relapses took place when I was drunk out of my mind, so I've decided to take a slightly different approach than quitting alcohol cause I frgn love drinking sometimes. I've decided that the moment I get drunk and feel like watching porn, I'm simply gona jerk off. I'm extremely confident of this tactic working, which brings me to the next point about mastubation.

3. Jerking off is fine and even required. Just cut out the porn. I feel very healthy when I masturbate to my imaginations and find its perfectly ok ad even required. My wet dream was a proof that our bodies need to ejaculate regularly. Plus the biggest advantage is that it helps you stay the no porn course slightly more effortlessly. Yes, for a few hours you will not feel horny but I just feel this is a more sustainable and enjoyable appraoch. I can maybe go about a few weeks but I definintely would not commit to never fapping.

4. MEDITATION. This shit has changed my life. I meditate one to two to even three times a day. Started beggning of this year but never did it regularly. But since mid-March I've been doing it almost daily and man, I can tell you it has the potential to change your fucking life. Because the relapses I had since I started meditation had a different feel about them. I felt more disgusted than ever before BUT my resolve also was mch stronger. It was like I could FEEL the bad effects even more and hence my resolve to come back stronger increased drastically, which was a wlcome change for someone like me who doesn't believe in will power. My determination started becoming effortless. For instance, just today morning I was thinkging - Even if someone pays me a million dollars in exhange for conituing to indulge , I won't take it simply cuz it made me feel like shit. So meditation will basically make you so self aware that anything that does not coincide with your nature starts to wither away.

5. Doing purposeful work. One thing that really works in my favor is that I simply love my work. A lot fo times when I relapsed, my work came in as a subsitute to restore pride. If you don't love waht you do, then maybe it needs to be addressed because you may get bored soon and that boredom can make you indulge in porn. Happened to me a lot but I'm sure I wouldnt even stand a chance if I hated what I was doing with my life because one of the biggest triggers for relapse is stress.

6. Create new habits. After one of my relpases, I was so frustrated that I bought a guitar and started working towards one of my dreams - to be a lead singer in a band. I even downloaded some apps based on good habits, the most beneficial one being the following: HABIT, which lets you check the dates on which you succesffuly don't indulge in your bad habits. It acts as a motivator. THe second app is called CLEAN, which lets you just measure the number of days n hours n minutes that you've been clean. Simple apps but they can just motivate you that extra inch as they help you build momentum, something that is essential in not giving up.

That's it. Hope it helped you and good luck to all you out there! Just the fact that we have realised the negative effects of seemingly innocous habits shows that our levels of self-awareness are way better than the average person. That itself should make you happy. Cheers. Smile

Day 4

I'm having motivational issues in many areas of my life so I'm undergoing an attempt at broad spectrum dopamine regeneration.

Nofap helps with that and also with some brainfog issues. I heard semen uses many of the same building blocks as the central nervous system/neural pathways.

I'm also reducing internet/computer time and subbing in more exercise outdoors.

Got checked out by the girl at Subway today though so its not all bad.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - philosophical_recovery - 06-01-2016 09:03 AM

Day 2. Already feel strong horniness/focus coming back.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - redbeard - 06-01-2016 09:52 AM

Highfive

Great post, testos111. Glad to hear you have benefitted from the experience.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Playboy - 06-01-2016 07:06 PM

Been reading the benefits for a week now wich is my why I'm starting today. Day 1


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - DrCotard - 06-01-2016 08:34 PM

I'm glad to see that more RVFers are joining the NoPorn/NoFap train.

Clap

Another problem I recently discovered with NoFap is that I bust my nut very quickly. That thing happened to me a few days ago when I was banging a cutie girl. Thanks to the chaser effect, I pulled the used condom and put on another to finish the bang. The good thing: my load was huge and I felt very masculine and sexual with that girl before the bang.

If you have advice related to last longer in bed while on NoFap let me know, because I need to solve this problem as soon as posible.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - redbeard - 06-01-2016 09:15 PM

@DrCotard

Lasting longer boils down to a few things

-Switching positions. Doggystyle without a condom drives me crazy I'll come in about five seconds. Girl on top is best. Side to side is favorite, great for passionate fucking.

-Wear a condom (get one that fits for maximum pleasure)

-Deep breathing

-Jerk off before the date or once a week (avoid porn)

-Have a bunch of girlfriends in rotation

-Alcohol

-Drugs. I have no experience but GLL recommends a ton

-Go for two rounds (get the lube ready)


I'm open to any suggestions this is something I always deal with but don't really care. The longer I go without sex, the more I want it, the easier it is to go for two rounds. So it balances out.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - philosophical_recovery - 06-02-2016 12:21 AM

End of day 2. Got laid but didn't really enjoy it. I'm thinking about it now, and I was definitely in the trap of having an orgasm just to have it, and wasting a lot of time in the process.

Just writing it up here seems to help. I'm a damn expert at making excuses to myself, and having to speak openly about whether or not I followed through on my self promises keeps me.

I don't like how getting some felt more like a chemical release, in the process of it happening, than being able to enjoy it.

The hard part will come tomorrow in the post lay blues. Popped some ZMA, going to bed, going to hit the gym hard. But first, work on a side project. I was a total inconsistent mess without a set goal to accomplish when waking up early. It's absolutely necessary to focus that energy somewhere instead of "ooohh, look, maybe I'll look at some camwhores for just a little bit."


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - HonantheBarbarian - 06-02-2016 12:54 AM

I know where youre coming from.

When you bust one of those chemical release nuts, the urge to fap the next morning, coupled with frustration is intense.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - storm - 06-02-2016 01:07 AM

Joining youn guys on the noporn experiment.

It seems a bit idiotic to fap if you don't already feel horny, which I realized I was doing with porn.

As an aside, one of the girls I banged recently suggested that if I fap it out i should use a fleshlight so I can "practice". Thoughts on that?


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - tomzestatlu - 06-02-2016 08:40 AM

I would like to ask how it is with testosterone level, while no fapping. I´m sure, that it could help in short-term and increase libido.
But what´s long-term effect? I´ve heard something like the more you fap, the higher testosterone you have. So no-fap should be the opposite effect.
I am interested in increasing my testosterone level and now I am really confused what´s right and what´s wrong.

I'm coming up to 90 days (will have 90 day review post soon) and broke hardcore mode around day 50/60 with a handful of bangs since then. Still no porn or jerking. My only release is via women.

The first few bangs I nutted pretty quick. A condom helped a bit but not a whole lot. After getting a few bangs, things seem to have normalized on the endurance front. I went a week without a bang recently (so plenty of time to recharge and bust quickly again) and I had longest session ever post-nofap (probably 45 minute to around an hour) in a lot of positions that usually make me bust quicker than later. Rawdogged too. Could have gone longer and I felt in control of when I wanted to release. Similar to times pre-NoFap where I jerked off the day before.

I also had some alcohol in my system during many of the bangs (the early quick ones AND non-quick ones) so while I think it helps dull the senses a bit, it doesn't seem to be the major X factor in making me last longer. If anything, for whatever minor endurance improvement it provides, it also probably has a minor negative effect on boner quality. Pre-NoFap, alcohol was almost killing my boners entirely but today, it seems like it has only minor effects now (both potentially positive and negative).

The bottom line basically being: fuck a few times over a period days/weeks and things will probably level off on their own. Maybe have a drink or two to dull your senses to take the edge off. Also, you could get a BJ for the first nut and then bang round 2. I would consider getting a boner pill for the round 2 depending on whether you are dealing with a new plate and how important leaving a good impression is to you; just as an insurance policy at the very least.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - YoungBlade - 06-02-2016 06:58 PM

I need to get back on this. Motivation has been completely dead lately.
