RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
One of the best things about NoFap is that feeling when you're walking around the city and you can feel your nuts guiding you. You're not up in your head, lost in anxiety and self-doubt. You're grounded by this anchor. You feel like a MAN! Don't mistake this for "thinking with the wrong head," AKA with your cock. This is different.

Even if you're still jerking off regularly, or not that far into the NoFap journey, use this as a psychological exercise. Imagine your balls as an anchor, keeping you cool and collected and away from the negative thoughts and low self-esteem that torture your mind.

When this feeling guides me, girls check me out WAY more. I don't quite buy the "they can sense the sexual energy" or "smell the testosterone." It's a lot simpler. You're letting the essence of man guide you, so you just look like a boss...remember, you're a MAN, motherfucker! Best thing in the world to be!

By the way, I don't want to front and act like this is an original discovery. Elliott Hulse talks a lot about "breathing through your balls" and shit like that, but doesn't bring it up much when discussing females. Check out his vids on Youtube, if you haven't already.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Day 6 of NoFap now. I am feeling some temptation but it's more as a result of what I ate yesterday, which was garlic, onions, and green chilis. Those three things are actually the worst possible thing you can eat if you are trying to avoid the pressure to ejaculate. There's a reason why monks and yogis avoid the above 3 foods. I see now the importance of diet in this and I won't make the same mistake again of eating those above three foods.

As an emergency method, cigarettes actually help for some reason or another. I remember back when I was smoking daily, my sex drive was a LOT less. Gonna smoke a couple of cigarettes and go for a 20km bike ride.

How am I feeling so far? A lot less anxiety, an improved mood, and more energy.

Felt inspired to write an article about the positive benefits I gained from the 3 years of avoiding ejaculation that I experienced earlier in life: http://www.mediafire.com/view/t34555a7uv...ation.docx

Nicotine can have negative consequences on obtaining erections. Probably why it helps. Or perhaps nicotine is helping because of dopamine hits it provides to replace the dopamine hits you would get from porn.

It really is all about raising the energy higher. About 30 minutes ago, I felt like I was about to lose my shit and and might end up masturbating. There was some pressure to want to ejaculate.

I then practiced these two yogic asanas, and now I am looking at pictures of women and feeling zero sexual arousal. I guess it was a success.

Sat Kriya Asana (practiced for one to two minutes)

back on the wagon boys. Lets dance this dance.

It's funny how when you decide something, something that you make part of your identity, how easy it is to stick to it. I no longer fap.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I always thought this was a little silly but for some reason I decided to give it a shot.

So far I've abstained for a week and the changes are remarkable.

First I'm way more calm and confident. It's not that I don't get anxious or uptight but it fades quickly. I've been an approach machine just talking to whoever is in my vicinity. If it's a cute girl I get her number, if it's not I just enjoy the interactions. I've talked to more girls in the past week than I have in the past 3 months. Finally my dreams have become super vivid and I'm waking much more rested.

Call me a convert.

More info on breathing through your balls?

I heard some yoga guy talking about this in one of my classes but I thought he was full of shit or drank too much wheatgrass or some shit.

You'll often hear people talk about breathing into your pelvic floor which is essentially the same thing. You should feel your center of gravity drop when you breath or at the very least not rise. If you google pelvic breathing or pelvic floor breathing you'll find lots of info on it.

This may have been discussed already but is sex with women still okay?

I understand the not masturbating or looking at porn part.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Has anyone noticed this feeling of a warm energy coming up, that keeps getting higher as the days progress ?
I am Still early on but I feel like all that energy and tension you get, has now gone to my stomach.

@objectivist tree; there is no problem with having sex with a woman, if anything that can help you. Unless you are going into hard mode and you want to be a monk.

I think the rules are whatever you want them to be. I have experimented with different levels of nofap since the beginning of this year. I never had a bad porn addiction, so it wasn't that hard for me.

The physical effects of nofap (getting mega horny, more energy etc) definitely are mitigated by sex just like when you fap. Except you feel accomplished after banging a chick, and it feels like you wasted that energy if you just fapped.

I have been having regular sex for the last 3 months or so, but when I go through a dry spell I've found the best for me is to fap once a week (usually a sunday night). This seems to keep me on that cycle. Once its been around 2 weeks with no orgasm, I feel like my sex drive drops.

Like everything, moderation is key. If you have a serious porn/fap addiction, you may need to abstain for much longer/indefinitely.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I was 6 months without masturbating and my body was not even putting pressure on me to masturbate (I thought I had stopped it for good), however the last few days I have been watching lots of porn, yesterday I fell out, I just had to masturbate. I was so pissed. I had a girl texting me last night telling me that she wants to fuck me, now I can't even do that today, I had to tell her to meet me next week because when I masturbate I literally feel without energy.

I lasted a week and was pissed after I relapsed. I really noticed a difference in how I was acting. I was more confident and had a deeper voice. The difference is pretty amazing. Going to try harder next time.

If you cave, how many days does it take to feel the effects again?

I say after a couple days you are back to feeling that deeper voice, confidence, etc. The day of I felt pretty pathetic. The next day I was back to normal.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
usually three days, but science has said that effects are found after a week.

I've been doing very well with NoFap, currently on day 34. Traveling has helped. I don't like jerking it in weird environments and fapping in a hostel sounds terrible.

Idle hands are the devil's playground.

When you are bored in front of a computer at home, the urge to dick around can happen quite easily. Always be doing something constructive with your time. It helps a lot. Also, combine nofap with daily cold showers and it helps a lot. Nothing will kill your urge to beat off like an ice cold shower for 5 to 10 minutes.

Even after 1 year plus, most American girls are not looking much better TBH... I think I'll try ice baths.

Is there any scientific evidence behind this? I take everything with a grain of salt, and as such, I am curious about this. Does it affect your testosterone? Do you get stronger erections? What are the benefits?

Bunch of links there. Main take away is that there's not much of an effect on testosterone after the first week. Additionally there's evidence that extended abstinence (>6 weeks) leads to lower testosterone levels. So I think dudes that go on 'hard mode' are shooting themselves in the foot. The conclusion on the page is that most of the benefits people are seeing are changes in brain rewards rather than in hormonal levels.

I've been doing some yoga and to be honest, even though I wack off daily, I am feeling better than ever. I guess it's mostly in your head. The yoga techniques bring your kundalini energy higher, but refraining from masturbation would certainly help it too.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
My personal experience seems to echo what ensam is saying.

After about 1 week there is a plateau of the "on" effects of NF/NP. There isn't much increasing effect after that.

One time I made it to 28 days before getting doing some coke at the strip club with my friends. I wound up coming home and jerking off like 7 times back to back. The only thing it really increased beyond the first seven days was disipline.

No more than once a week seems to be a happy medium. I think the visual and sensory stimulation from the porn is more damaging than the physical action of beating off.

My final takeaway is thay its definitely worth doing, just don't drive yourself crazy. Also when I nut from fapping I try to hold it in rather than splooge all over the place. It helps the recovery period IME.

^lol at the coke-fueled jerkathon

No Fap is just one piece of the puzzle. Im noticably more horny after a squat day. I also load up on multivitamins and extra zinc.

I think the problem with porn is its an easy BigMac of sexual release. If you eat healthy food and prepare it yourself, you feel good all day. That Bigmac tastes awesome, but then you feel like shit. Personally im both very picky and lazy, so unless im horny, why not just jerk off to a ten?

When I was in college and full of hormones, jerkin was never a problem. Now that im older it is a huge problem. I wouldnt know from experience about 7+ days, but I couldn't imagine being much hornier than days 6 and 7. Prob best to stick to the original Roosh article and stick with Sundays. If you have awesome willpower, cut the porn out forever.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I've made it 3 weeks before and that was pretty cool, but I didn't have anything else going for me back then, so I didn't stick with it. Now that I have other shit to do, I find that I'm less inclined to masturbate in general. The only thing that makes it difficult is when I start randomly fantasising about railing some girl out. But I usually get up start doing some work, read, exercise, take a contrast shower etc. There are a lot of things you can do to kill the urge to whack off.

I'm currently on day 6 of this run. I wanna make it 3.5 weeks.
