I feel much more mentally healthy, my mind isn't constantly wandering to porn and I actually don't think about it at all unless it is brought to my attention by a third party.

I've made it past my target of 100 days, now on day 114 and I mostly feel the same as in my previous post. However I have been feeling something new, namely an intense pressure in my balls. It seems to have subsided but I felt it constantly for 3 or 4 days.

Since cutting out porn my attraction to women in the real world has shot up, I frequently have to use willpower to prevent an erection in public situations now, something I have not really experienced for over 15 years.

I hit the bottom today, what a sad day.. It was sunny and beautiful outside yet I chose to stay home alone, to read books and write. I wrote and read but I also jerked off more times than I can remember until I ran out of sperm more precisely.Pathetic.

Staying home alone with an internet connection and a lot of energy is not a smart thing to do if you're serious about this guys.

Tomorrow will be day 1 for me.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Felix88 - 07-24-2016 09:38 PM

I start again to day,

Until 1st of September I will not fap or watching porn again. On Saturday I was too drunk, fapped and texted some bitch that I love her Sad

I think I need to get serious about this and write down my observation.

Day 1

Completely understand this, especially when you want to have a nice day to yourself to do something alone and personal, like reading/writing.

Best thing you can do is find a coffee shop nearby where you are comfortable and take your activities there.

Sometimes self control and willpower is not enough. You must remove yourself from the stimulus.

Found a sweet girl I've been seeing for a couple of weeks. She keeps my balls empty and I haven't even though about porn since I've started seeing her. Watching her suck my dick is better than any porn I've ever watched.

my anecdotal observations

Last year I got my testosterone levels checked and it was ~500 in the morning and ~300 in the afternoon, which is absolutely crap considering I am 22 years old and was working out often. I was also feeling the effects of low T.
Then in the winter i went to India for 2.5 months and near the end of the trip I got my levels measured again and it was ~800 in the morning ( estrogen was also little high).

I tried to consider why the huge discrepencies. Could it be due to all of the spices in Indian food in India vs Indian food abroad? Could it be due to the different environment where there are more traditional roles? It could have been a number of factors but I think the main one is that I was not fapping. At home I was fapping multiple times a week but in India I went over 1.5 months without doing it. Near the end of the trip I did do it a few times also.

I honestly believe after reading up on nofap that the HUGE increaase in my testosterone levels were from NoFap.

You know all of this but Mike Ma doesn't pull any punches when he writes about it. Its all shot, no chaser and he is right. He had a tweet about this a few weeks ago and it struck me.

EVERYTIME you JERKOFF TO PORN, you're CUCKING yourself.

Its a bit extreme but if you get your brain to believe it, you actually begin to physically resist porn because your brain is in conflict with what it is processing.

Save this article and read it before you drop those pants to your ankles and flooding your brain with digital dopamine.

It's been too long since I was back here. It definitely pains me to come back in this way, to this thread, for this issue, but it is what it is. One day at a time, the ultimate test.


Day 1. Let's fucking do this.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Speculation - 07-28-2016 09:43 AM

Day 1 .. Again

Had a slip after 50 days. Binged for a week.

The common denominator was again alcohol and hangover anxiety. Also it happened 5 days after leaving hardcore (no sex) mode by banging an ex-gf (who at least is now a steady FWB.)

This week has been garbage. I've lost a lot of drive and got nothing done. Strangely though I feel calmer, less anxious and was actually less interested in the porn and weird fetishes I used to be into, so I'm not completely back at square one.

My last insight with all this is that its not even about women anymore. Its about the drive, motivation and clarity of mind that abstention brings. I couldn't give a shit about the broads. I just want to get shit done in my life. I'm at that turning point where women get left behind and its all about me.

The scary thing about doing no fap for a few weeks is, you start leaking precum randomly, you think it's piss, nope, that's sticky precum.

I found that if I allowed myself to think sexual thoughts for some time this would happen. It hasn't troubled me for some weeks now as I am quite good about shutting the thoughts down, it only troubles me before bed occasionally now.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - BlackFriar - 08-01-2016 08:26 PM

Going to start today. Going to make a goal and keep it. But I will probably bang fat chicks because of the built up seed in my loins.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - JoyStick - 08-03-2016 08:57 AM

Day 1


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Pestilence - 08-04-2016 04:56 AM

On day 7 after ages but no one to bang right now. Anyone feel depressed at this stage?


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Vainikka - 08-08-2016 09:29 AM

day 10! Haven't been able to do this long in a while.


Do you guys have huge urges to fap the next day after you have had sex?

Oh yeah. Even if I had a marathon session one day, having sex generally just seems to stoke the engine more.

I like this paragraph from your article greekgod. Ties in well with YourBrainOnPorn's emphasis on neuroplasticity.

"Think about it. You, the viewer, are watching the stronger male sexually please a woman you find attractive. And as if that isn’t depraved enough, add this to the fact that repeating this process is training your brain to accept the fact that you’re the cuckold. Night after night, the modern male encodes within his brain that it’s okay to sit and watch, to let the better man take what you desire."

Day 1 of 90 days of hard mode... let's go baby


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - JoyStick - 08-09-2016 08:29 AM

Day 1. Again.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Barron - 08-10-2016 02:20 PM

Hit another Day 7.

Haven't been this far in about a month. The last time I went a week I felt horrible withdrawals, like my balls weighed a couple pounds each.

No withdrawal feelings yet and today was the first time I felt energized when waking up, getting out of bed within 5 minutes. Normally it takes me a few snoozes plus another 10-15 minutes of wasting time on my phone.

Definitely. It's like a snowball effect. I was doing good until I went on vacation and got laid. When I got back I had strong urges and relapsed.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Cr33pin - 08-14-2016 05:57 AM

I dabbled in the no porn/fap years ago.... I'm sure there is evidence of it somewhere in this thread. However I relapsed and went back to watching it at some point years ago as well.

In June I shared a apartment with RVF member Vinny (Great guy with strong game but no beard) An he had mentioned he joined the no fap no porn like 3 months prior an it was very beneficial to him. So I decided to give it another whirl.... soon there after, around a week and a half or two week I mentioned to him that I was really starting to hit my stride here in Kiev and was killing it with day game and having a lot of productive interactions with the females. He reminded me that shortly after cutting out porn I suddenly started having some of my best approaches and interactions, could it be coincidence or could the no porn play a role?

Fast forward to about 3 weeks ago I noticed some big changes in the way I was viewing life. I'm in many Whatsapp groups with RVF members all over the world, an recently I find myself not as impressed or into the way some of they chats go..... I don't want to go into to much detail but a lot of these chats just end up being boasting about banging random chicks. I though and have even openly discussed recently with other forum members here in Kiev in my circle that I feel like maybe I am getting older or jaded or something but my feelings and views towards this lifestyle and the way I go about it are changing. Last night in one of my chats a member was talking about going for #3 (his 3rd bang in Kiev) an thats all it was a number, I thought to myself "Wow thats pretty empty, just flowing through life chasing numbers"... the next will just be #4. Thats when it dawned on me that my views have probably changed from cutting out porn, its the only thing I have changed in my life. I think maybe my brain is starting to rewire itself a bit for better or for worse. Cause now I'm just kind of confused cause this lifestyle and banging chicks is my life an the way I built an set up my life. Don't get it twisted I still plan on banging chicks, I just look at it a little different.

Bit of a rant but its the epiphany I had last night.. I'm probably close to two months with no porn an no fap

Preach. Feel exactly the same way. Will be fun to see you after 1 year of no fap, you'll have attained Nirvana.

I've come to realize that I want to build a good and solid foundation before embarking, if I ever do, on an International Baller kinda lifestyle phase. And laying this foundation requires a great deal of energy. Had a stage after which I realized a new notch is nice, but one only feels like The Man for about an hour or so. Then it's back to the usual grind. Each new notch brings a lesser dopamine rush. (That said, have not experienced flag game properly yet, so this is highly susceptible to change with new living environments and countries.)

I'm 25 y/o and maybe it's a little young to already feel like chasing tail is an empty pursuit. Maybe I should plow through a cornfield of chicks before earning the right to achieve this conclusion. But it happened pretty early. Girls just lost most of their mystery after a while.

Don't think this re-wiring is bad for you. It's almost like a weight off your shoulders when you realize that going after chicks just for the notch is an ever-reaching and ultimately empty strive, purely driven by ego and what society deems as a valued manly pursuit. Look at guys like Charlie Sheen with numbers in the thousands; sure, he's probably got an infinite amount of crazy stories, but in the end he seems like a guy who never found what he was searching for, and got stuck with AIDS to top it off.

I much rather build a great foundation for starting a family with a good woman; it's the ultimate goal.

(I swear, sometimes I feel like an old romantic geezer stuck in the body of a young man.)

***

On to topic at hand, I do think there's something to not fapping or watching porn. Nowadays I bounce outta bed in the morning, enough said. Ejaculations contain the same chemicals as that of our cerebrospinal fluid, and that fluid is pretty important to us. Why waste it on Sasha Grey or other porn hoes? Recommend researching what the Chinese/Taoists think about fapping... We should not easily discard the wisdom of the ancients.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Barron - 08-16-2016 06:34 AM

I'll hit two weeks tomorrow. Haven't had any major withdrawals like I did before when I tried for a week. The last time I made it this far was years ago when an ex caught me beating off, in all my glory, at my computer monitor. Everyday of it was suffering sustained only by her epic guilt trip on my beta mind. Now it feels like escaping something and I have to get as far away as possible.

Edit: I have to say that most of the credit goes to being in Ukraine and living in a culture where sex isn't the manufactured currency, and where traditional gender roles are celebrated. Ukraine completely reassured me that the women I want are out there and not going anywhere anytime soon. If I didn't believe this I would have never even considered trying NoFap.
