I've been eating some more carbs than normal to gain mass but other than that I went through a cold a couple weeks ago. Maybe the season change? I also slept like crap the entire week.

My libido dropped tremendously during the flatlines earlier this year. It kicked up quite a bit when I got in a short relationship with a gal, we were going at it sometimes 5x in a 24hr period.

I've felt more of a compulsion to masturbate out of habit than straight horniness this week. Going out around some new people helped last night. I am 30 as well, if that means anything.

Get your T tested. Honestly. For me it was at approximately 35 when I felt "different".

I popped ZMA/Tribulus/Maca complex together with massive amounts celery. It helped temporarily but the real shit happened on TRT. It's like going 10-15 years back.

Do you sleep like crap because you just can't sleep well? The first thing I noticed when I started getting my T levels up is a quality of sleep. I sleep like a baby now.

Thanks, I'll definitely get my T tested, I guess I need a baseline measurement. Hopefully this flatline ends like the few other times when I started getting easily aroused again. For the same reason, trying to abstain when I was in my early/mid twenties landed me in the exact same space (drop in libido after stopping to masturbate for longer than a couple days).

Where do you get your T tested? Do you just head to a clinic and ask them to do it? And what would be considered a 'healthy' level?

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I broke down today.

Before today, I was going for 24 days without masturbating.

During that time interval, I noticed that my depression has went away and that my approach anxiety has significantly subsided. Approaching was finally easy for me. The only downside is that I was always thinking about sex.

The main reason I gave in is because I got sick and I am at home recovering. In other words, I am not doing anything. I am pissed that I got sick since it was the catalyst for the chain of events that led me to jerk off.

Anyhow, day one starts tomorrow again. Whether I am sick or not, I am not going to jerk off again.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Broke down Saturday and today. Totally due to slight depression (mostly career, and prob some weather). I suspect I was looking for a quick shot of dopamine.

I've been good for teh previous 2-3 months, so I'll just jump back on the train. I've learned not to beat myself up.

The alex jones busty broad picture set me off recently. I dunno about the DNS thing though. I remember I liked leechblock, I will have to set that up again. But the hard part is eventually just facebook, and even a news article can be a set off point when I have forgo fapping for a long time. THe worse part about breaking no fap was that it hurt around the nuts afterwards, and I felt ill.

Getting back into this. Its only been three days, and I'm getting stupidly horny, but I feel like I've turned a corner. I think that if you are serious about NoFap (fapping was giving me ED), and young you need to be in a position where you are seeing a lot of girls, or at least going out a lot otherwise its just impossible.

Fapping doesn't give any ED to anyone. It's a negative emotional charge around fapping that does.

Quitting fapping, although overall is probably good, is mostly treating a symptom instead of a root cause.

IMO, the root cause in most cases is the negative emotion of shame (attached to fapping or maybe even to sex in general).

There's a whole thread about T here started by MikeC, just search. There's a lot of info on testing, levels and treatment.

I personally went to GP and said I want to get a full blood test because I feel tired all the time. They say, are you depressed? I said, NO. Just no energy at all.

For me, I look at below 500 ng/dl a being "holy shit, it's crap" zone but check Mike's thread (and blog), it has way more info.

Need your advice guys.
I havent fapped for about 3 months now + no sex. It almost killed my sex drive.

I got in a relationship, well more like a friendship+ with my oneitis, and it is impossible for me to maintain my erection. Literally the second I slide into her my erection is gone. When my erection is back and we are fuckin, there is such a pressure inside me that I cant last longer than 30secs. This whole abstinence turned me into a virgin I have the impression.

Any suggestions?

Maybe you are in the flateline ? Keep banging your gf and the sex drive will be back.

Also check your diet, sleep and go lift heavy weights to produce enough testosterone.

Quit. You'll find at the most difficult times is when you'll have the most potential for picking up a woman.

Like many others here, quit the porn. If you have to jack, jack. Sometimes ya just gotta do it.

Okay I'm not bringing my tablet to bed anymore. It is too tempting to go to beeg and pump one out.

Even disregarding the health benefits, this is an amazing exercise in self discipline, similar to ice cold showers.

Forcing yourself to stay on a mission will assist your focus and motivation in other areas. I'm going to give this a try, along with contrast showers for 90 days starting today. Will report back results

I think my porn addiction is because I fear that I'm not good enough to bang the type of girls that I want. So to get over it, I have to work harder on my game, face the fear head on and start approaching hot girls.

One thing that happens to me is that if I abstain for enough days, I will eventually have a wet dream as the body has to release it somehow. The dream experience is much better than any kind of jacking off.

In my opinion/experience, abstaining from jerking off accomplishes nothing but reducing my sex drive.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
103 days ; combined with working out + no fast food +cold showers

This is what I'm experiencing:
-Strong morning erections because of deep sleep & peak testosterone
-Sexual imagination
-Quick erections
-Feeling horny
-Sharp memory
-I get an erection just from talking to a chick on whatsapp or on a dating site
-Power of visualization , It's definitely back
-Strong vocabulary when chatting up people , I come up always with consistent words which differentiates me from the average people.
- No social anxiety , I enjoy talking to strangers more these days.
- I added 5 new girls to my harem
- Approach wise , I'm more agressive ,with an unshakeable self confidence.The knee-jerk reaction was nothing but a souvenir.


I've never browsed any porn site during this period and will never do so .
I strongly recommend you give it a shot.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Yeah I agree, me personally I'm at 3 weeks of neither porn nor whacking off.

I go through weird ups and downs with sex drive and always have my favorite porn girls pop in my head, although hopefully these fade with time.

I do feel more socially competent and self-confident though.

Jerking off to your own imagination is fine but I want to stay off of it while I quit porn, that seems to be the suggested course of action by all the NoFap internet shit so I will re evaluate in nine more weeks. But I was totally dealing with a warped brain, even when I would jerk off to my imagination I would fantasize about porn girls instead of my prior bangs or girls I know in real life... That is fucked up! I'm pretty damn sure our forefathers never did crap like that!

I do find it is a good mix while I quit drinking, the urge to fap is far stronger than any desire I have to drink, my need to booze has been nullified because I'm more consumed with cranking one out to some porn, as weird as that sounds!

Good luck to all still on the challenge!
