RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Ibagemyoutagem - 08-16-2016 11:59 PM

Im starting this no fap because I need to become focus on all my goals. Getting fit, managing my money, learning finance in college, and having a ltr so I don't become distracted from my goals. I been fapping heavily recently due to just being inactive and staying in my room. I even feel off from planning out my day daily which really helps guild where im gonna go next vs just automatically watching Netflix and wasting time . Starting with this night , i'll post daily

I did a no Porn streak for 6 months.
I am not an advocate of noFap as I personally believe it is more harm than benefit especially if you are young. But I was sticking to fapping once every 5-7 days if pussy was not available. That kept me pretty motivated and energized.

Before going to no porn I was watching hardcore porn. Just a picture of naked girl would not be enough.

I congratulated myself on 6 months of NoPorn and decided to do a controlled experiment. Opened google, typed in wet pussy and opened images. The rush I got from just seeing bunch of wet pussy pics was shocking. My hands were shaking out of shear excitement.
In this half year I had around 20 bangs and seen quite a few nice wet pussies, but it was nothing compared to seeing pictures on the screen.

I am thinking that you get the rush from seeing many at the same time. From being able to switch from girl to girl in a matter of seconds. This novelty effect or Coolidge Effect is a key to all the bad symptoms porn use has.

I don't really know if there is a cure for this, as it is partially natural. Maybe having a treesome or more-some will have a similar effect on brain.

Anyways I fapped to porn few times next few days. I became less present. During the morning meetings at work I was interrupted more often, I started having trouble keeping eye contact with people (when normally I don't even think about it). I did not like it.

Anyways I am on day 5 noPorn now, but this time I am going to continue no porn till the rest of my life.

Porn is evil my friends.

OK I am inspired to try again after reading that last message, did you just quit cold turkey or go to once a week and then to nothing?

Too much fapping probably is holding me back in all honesty

I went cold turkey. No porn at all.

I continued masturbating with mental wank bank for about a month and then stopped that too.

Focused on girls and getting sex. Once you learn and train yourself to stop playing with your dick you begin to use this energy to propel you forward in life.

If I can say one thing to you: you will get there if you believe you can. You just need to persevere

Doing a very interesting experiment involving addictive / unnatural stimuli

Let's just say that when i relapsed at nofap, twenty minutes later i had broken a 22 day no sugar streak

It's not just about the porn, nutrition can be just as damaging on the brain


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - XPQ22 - 08-23-2016 01:42 PM

I'm currently on an "extremely limited" no porn/nofap program. I watch maybe 20 minutes a week, and never inside 48 hours of seeing the girl I'm currently seeing regularly (about twice a week), and never within 24 of the occasional date I have with a new girl.

I'm in my mid, heading to late 30s and with this limitation I usually have no problem nutting two, sometimes three times on the couple nights a week I have sex, even with a girl I've been seeing for months. Sometimes the third is a little challenging and takes some serious oral work to grind out of me, but I can get there about half the time.

She's real messy and impressed by the time I'm done with her.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Grenblin - 08-23-2016 07:29 PM

Count me in, 11 days no PMO.
Been watching porn for about 10+ years, noticed that my interests began shifting toward some sick shit that in no way would get me even semi-hard before. Used to jerk when in LTR to a point when I preferred it over banging my fiance (now an ex).
Used porn as a means to reduce horniness instead of going out with girls; jerked multiple times on some days until ran out of cum and still did more. I'd say there almost hasn't been a day without jerking at least once. Sometimes out of sheer boredom.
Experienced several PIED's lately while banging different chicks, however, was still rock hard while jacking off or getting a BJs (but took forever to cum during a BJ, like 15-20 minutes) which resulted in performance anxiety and reduced sex drive.
Didn't know what's going on and was getting quite depressed about the issue until I came across (pardon the pun) this thread and YBOP.

So far I noticed:
- Better workouts in the morning, I mean I am lifting MORE in every exercise and can do more sets! And that's at 5:30AM!
- Strong morning wood came back on second week (haven't had that is quite some time). It doesn't last long, but it's a start.
- More energy, but can't fall asleep on schedule resulting in less than 7 hours of sleep.
- My dick is semi-hard with even slightest sexual thought or sight of an attractive female, fully clothed.
- Mood swings are present, however, I'm not sure if that's a result of a recent breakup or NoPMO.
- I'm quite sensitive to smells and either I'm going crazy or my own scent is changing (couldn't smell it at all before, now I detect something vague) and colognes that I put on smell a bit differently.

Didn't install any blockers because I don't want to rely on anything external in my battle. Only will power.
Deleted my 250+GB porn collection, but kept personal videos and photos, however I'm not feeling an urge to look at them.
Also starting ZMA tomorrow.

Will keep updating as I go.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - YoungArt - 08-29-2016 08:27 AM

Okay fellas I'm on day 25. Completely clean which means. NO PORN, NO MASTURBATION no orgasm. Feeling really good.
I've been with 3 different girls for the last couple weeks, blue balls were the only issue after the dates as I always escalated with them. (really bad logistics, hard to f-close atm)

Here is my secret, I've been pretty much into porn and jerking off for the last 8 years & I've been trying to quit for the last 2 years. Longest I ever made were 30 days after that I couldn't get a decent streak. The reason why I'm so good now is because I have adapted a completely new mindset. I'm reading the book called "how to stop worrying and start living" (still haven't finished this book but it has already changed my life) this new mindset of mine is crazy really, finally I see rationally and don't depend on my emotions anymore. That book opened my eyes, I finally understand it. So therefore the last 3 weeks were amazing. In addition to that, I feel like nofap is giving me that extra energy. Overall I'm in a tip top condition.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Mercenary - 08-30-2016 04:36 AM

I have tried various times and failed with this so I am going to try a different approach.

1.
I am NOT going to count the days I have gone without fapping.
Instead, I am going to keep a list of every single time I do it each week and gradually try to reduce the frequency.

2.
When I relapse, I will try not to binge, to keep down my overall numbers per week.


I hope a gradual overall SLOW reduction will be a lot more practical and realistic then a complete stop which really does not work for me.
Last year I lost a lot of weight through intermittent fasting....I hoping the same style of approach can work for me for nofap.

I'm on Day 7 and all it took was cutting my internet at home and putting a data block on my phone.

Wish I was joking.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - testos111 - 08-31-2016 06:47 AM

Day 38

This is my 21st attempt since jumping on the bandwagon in July 2015.

The longest I went was last year for around 63 days.

This streak is the second longest for me but this time my confidence is on another level and I just know that I'm not going to relapse. I've been drunk a lot of ocassions and still not relapsed, something which was almost always a relapse trigger in the past.

To the gentlemen who don't take this serisouly, I can say one thing - You have no clue what you are missing out on. Only if it could be put in words.

I was almost heading for loneliness and depression before I started this shit and now I almost feel like an animal.

Sometimes I get horny to the degree where my body is almost trembling with the urge to fuck a woman. It's a beautiful feeling, not only in terms of how alive it makes you feel but also because it really motivates you to get out there in the real world and form connections, approach and become a fuck hunter. I haven't felt this ever in my life, thanks to the porn fest in which I got absorbed since childhood.

I've realised that most people cannot follow through and relapse simply because they don't realise the benefits and don't end up taking this seriously enough deep down.

I can tell you that watching porn and losing your semen is almost as bad as any other second grade disease and in the long term, possibly as bas as any serious one.

This shit will change your life, make no mistake about it.

I'll be writing a detailed post when I complete the half century.

What's my goal?

There is no goal. THat's what you have to realise. This shit is FOREVER.

The first time you declare this to yourself, you'll almost feel a void in your life, like the one you feel when you lose someone who is close to you.

But show some grit, hang in there and never back down. The benefits of restoring your brain's factory settings are just way too good to not acoomplish this mission.

They don't just stop at improving your sex life, but will massively upgrade your abilities in everything you do in life.

Testos111, during your streaks, did you edge at all? That's the hardest part for me. Also, coming home late at night alone after seeing tons of hot girls.

"fuck hunter"

almost at 5 months with no porn, this is inspiring me to take the nofap part more seriously

Hey man, you need to have a goal. You will reach a point where your animal brain will seriously test you. Your goal could be no PMO until the New Year. Or no PMO for the next 3 months, etc. But you must have a goal, something to aim for.

In moments of utter despair and temptation I said to myself "just hold out, you can binge in the New Year when you get your money back from your bro"

Will I go back to PMO? Never (I hope, I trust). But saying this to myself was enough to pacify my urges. Just being able to withstand the urges for a few hours or a day is enough. Remember, it's all good writing these words above and you feel in control right now, but your words are like candle wax when held to the flame of your animal hindbrain. You must prepare for those moments of emotional distress/boredom/drunk/hungover when you are at your weakest.

I agree with you. Yes, for those not used to it, you do need a goal.I said what I said because I just feel I've become a pro at this having tried so many times. I mean I'm at a place where I am so sure I'm not gonna relapse that it's not even a thought. The destruction it has caused has left my brain so scarred that it's almost an inutitive reaction for me. Though i completely get what you are saying.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - LEMONed IScream - 09-01-2016 01:45 PM

I've tried this a few times before but never got by past two weeks, sadly.

This time I am willing to try for good and see where it leads me, I have been porn free for a week, so far I am actually noticing a sort of drop in my energy and slight drop in sexual appetite as well. Will try this for a while more to see where it goes, so far I have had moderate urges to watch porn but have been able to resist them all, I am only 22 though and never really had erection problems or something like that, but I feel porn is something you should shut yourself off from, it creates an unnatural addiction to naked pixels... It can't be good long term on your brain and libido, and your drive to get things done.

I was waiting until tomorrow when I hit 3 weeks to post an update.

- So far no relapses even though sometimes the urge is strong, almost overwhelming, but successfully resisting that urge is even more satisfying.
- I think I've hit if not 100% flatline, then something very close to it. Most of the time I am just indifferent even though in my head I still think about banging every damn chick I lay my eyes on. The most I get is a semi boner.
- Morning wood subsided almost completely, I only woke up to a couple of them and they weren't that strong.
- Been taking ZMA, the vivid dreams are interesting and somewhat weird, but nothing as extreme as what I've been reading online.
- Hitting the gym hard; I've been able to up the resistance on almost every exercise which is friggin' awesome.
- I still cannot fall asleep on the schedule, but wake up fairly refreshed even with less than optimal amount of sleep.
- I require less caffeine (cut the amount in half) to stay alert during the day and don't take power naps anymore because I don't feel the need. On the other hand, staying concentrated during 15-minute meditations became more challenging.
- Noticed that I have no problem maintaining eye contact with attractive females, not sure if that's the result of hormonal change or just my confidence gone up. I actually enjoy when they are the first to break the eye contact.
- Mood swings are still present, although not as intensely as few weeks ago. Most are from being upset about the whole ED problem, thoughts such as "I'll never be able to bang another chick without going limp halfway through" etc. Reading multitude of NoFAP success stories helps with motivation and gives me hope.

On the side note, spoke about taking the challenge with my best friend and my younger brother who in their turns both admitted to having the same problem with porn and/or ED and both jumped on the wagon.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - papaiela - 09-01-2016 02:26 PM

I am in day 25 without porn. Not my longest streak but I hope to not watch porn ever again. That shit made me weak and twisted some wires deep inside my brain.

I still jerk off though about once a week to keep the blood flowing.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Pride male - 09-01-2016 04:10 PM

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Coldfire - 09-01-2016 07:16 PM

I'm on day 4 right now and its starting to hit the rough patch. Longest I've ever gone was 32 days
