A week in. Should be experiencing a testosterone spike today? I think that the general effect is increased overall alertness whereas after having fapped, I usually feel lackadaisical for half a day.

I'm in an LTR so this might be a little bit easier for me, but I'm going to give this no porn/no fap challenge a legitimate try. I don't think it's healthy to rewire your brain to be so voyeuristic even if you're having regular sex.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I'm a 1-2 a week guy and never been able to fully quit. Tried K9 in the past but was to easy to circumvent.

Was looking for a way to remove social media distractions and came across this browser plug in called, StayFocused.

You can chose which sites to block and it gives you an allotted amount of time to visit those sites per day. The minimum is one minute, you can't zero it out.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detai...delahlfoji

I immediately added FB and my favorite porn haunts.

Might be a good tool for guys that have the right mindset but succumb to urges.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
For me, quitting porn has been very difficult. My main motivation to do this challenge was to recover my boners, sexual stamina and the quality of orgasms. In mid 2015 I lasted only 1 week without PMO.

Today I'm in my second week of No Porn, and these are my conclusions:

Before No Fap:

- Low energy.
- Weak or no morning boners.
- Low motivation to bang girls.
- Erectile disfunction.
- Waking up groggy or sleepy.
- Weak orgasms when I bang girls.
- Heavy brain fog.
- Low job performance.
- Average sexual performance.
- Some lazyness
- Prone to procrastination

Changes I'm noticing with No Fap:

- I'm slowly recovering my sleep and I'm waking up rested.
- I have more energy to do things.
- My desire to bang girls is slowly being intense
- I'm slowly getting aroused by real girls on the street (or pictures of cute girls from dating apps like POF or Tinder). I feel the desire to bang them instead of fapping.
- Procrastination and lazyness to do things have greatly reduced.
- Braing fog isn't as heavy as it used to be. I think clearly.
- I feel more calm.
- Morning woods are slowly returning.

Downsides of NoFap (for me):

- My girl's standards have downgraded notoriously (I hope to correct this problem)
- It's hard to do NoFap when I'm taking Zinc
- I feel an uncomfortable pressure on my prostate.
- It's extremely hard to do NoFap on willpower alone (You can do this, but you must have a strong willpower).

In the first days of NoFap I was producing a lot of pre-cum, felt a lot of energy and tingles in my balls and spontaneous boners. Nowadays my brain is on flatline mode. I have semi-strong boners when I see a girl I want to bang.

In my case this challenge works because I'm treating Porn as an addiction; I'm using positive mentalizations to treat the problem and I'm slowly deleting the porn I have in my laptop (In the medium term I hope to erase an auxiliary porn stash I have in my cloud accounts).

I'll report my progress from now.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Fuck it, i`ll jump in.

I dont really masturbate anymore.
Some touching here and there but never with the intent to cum.
I can pretty much go however long i want to without orgasm.
Got a solid blowjob today but the girl finished before i finished, but i am allright. More for the next girl.
This is not bragging, this is coming from a guy who used to masturbate 5 times a day to porn 365 for..15 years??
Was completely wired to pmo, and could not for the life of me have successful sex with women.
Until i discovered the effects of porn and masturbation.
Did 9 months hardcore no orgasm at all after that. Total munk mode.
I know how hard it is, and have had relapses over the past three or so years i have been on nofap.
But not for a long time now, and i have absolutely no use for porn.
Over time you will get more and more used to it.
It is definitely a marathon so don`t get too upset if you trip and fall here and there.
I will say that again, it is a marathon.. Treat it as such.
I know about guys who are years into this and still relapse every now and then, so don`t make it an obsession..

It`s kind of funny, as i wrote this i got a few flashbacks from some of my favourite porn scenes i had forgotten about.
But no urges at all.
The only good porn in the world is the one you make yourself.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Tried NoFap several times now, with my personal record of 17 days, 14 of which I spent in Thailand (no surprise).
When I have access to variety of girls, lets say 3 different girls on rota, I don't need to fap at all. If I have one LTR and no flings, I need it just out of boredom.

Due to my profession (1 month out of 2, no women around whatsoever) I can not really do NoFap forever. It physically hurts me, I am also not sure about health effects.

As it is porn that does most damage to your motivation to get girls I have decided to quit porn till the rest of my life and only fap once a week, to photos of my ex's, when I have no access to women, and NoFap at all when there is a way for me to get poon.

So far day 10 no porn. Going strong.

Definitely better energy when not im not cumming.
As for techniques i never really used any.. I had to quit because my sexlife depended on it. Cant manifacture that kinda motivation..
Plenty of techniques out there though, mindfulness is a good one.. Catching yourself in the moment and cutting the (habitual) train of thought. Which often involves getting the fuck out of the bed/house.
You fap out of boredom, feeling down, not getting pussy that night ect whatever the routine is..

Day 50.

Once a week I've been banging this chick. This keeps me energized throughout the week...but every 7 days or so I feel like a fucking animal and crave pussy.

I think I'll be able to make it to 90 days no problem, which I haven't done in about three years.

How's everyone else holding up?

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Today I'm 1 month porn free and these are my thoughts:

On day 28 I fucked two girls in the same day!. When I was fucking with the first girl I felt a crazy amount of vital energy and testosterone through my body, had an steel boner and I was pounding her in an animalistic way. Her wet pussy made me feel more dominant in the bed. After that I was craving more pussy.

3 hours later in that day I was fucking another girl with a big booty. I enjoyed having rough sex with her (banging furiosly her in doggystyle, putting my hands in her neck, touching and fingering her pussy, being extremely dominant with her in bed and finally filling her pussy with my semen).

NoPorn has made wonders for my sexual wellness. Today I fapped using only my imagination and some photos of my girls and my dick responded well. In the past, I was only able to fap exclusively with porn pics.

Another benefit I've noticed is in the online dating aspect: I uploaded a pic of me on Tinder and POF taken when I was on my eighth day of NoPorn/NoFap and I was having a fair number of matches on Tinder and my POF profile (To this day) is being seen by a fair number of younger girls Kissy . Keep in mind that the picture I uploaded on those dating sites is an average photo of me (is not professionally taken or improved)

Conclusion of this datasheet: I'm more interested in girls than porn and I'll take whatever it takes to definitively get rid of the poisonous porn vice of my life. Smile

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I'm in mark this as day #1...

Won't get into details as to how or why I think I can stop this forever as it's best to WAIT for the story to unfold. That said...

Quick Background
1. I Think I Have Above Average Libido (Sex Addict)
The longest I have ever gone was 30 days which resulted in me havong blue balls which was occuring WHILE I WAS HAVING SEX.

This was only possible because this is when I went out 70 days in a row explor social dynamics and lifestyle design.

I ended up literally busting a nut in less than 5mins through masturbation as I could no longer take the pain. (This time around I think I can overcome blue balls)

Beyond that it was frankly impossible for me to do NO FAP and it didn't help that I became abit addicted to webcam girls in 2013 it was purely psychological.

I have tried nofap in the past but the max was...

7 days...Which I would then fap 6 to 12 times in a day.

So I usually fapped everyday even if I had sex it would just make me fap even more. It them occurred to me that if I went 4 or more days then I ALWAYS had sex.

To paint a picture I was going out 1x a month at one point and fapping 3-8x a day. I did no fap and went out the first time in 2 or so months.

I was on day 4...Lets just say I was in an after party in a dark lounge-like basement in a manhattan restuarant which also had a bar. There was an italian girl. (When I got there it was only 4 girls 1 I brought and 3 euros)

I literally pulled one of the girls into the darkest area of the room (the place was laid out like a bottle service lounge) had her straddling me as i finger her from the back and have my dick out. Her insistence to use condom caused me to stop and go back.

Then I took the 2nd girl i didn know and did samething. Only this time she said similar and I just ask all the guys in the space if they have condom...NO...I just leave to buy condoms and fuck at her place.

That drive was 4 days of NO FAP...

I didnt even tell the whole story which involved me eating her out on the steps in her building and some old guy threatening to call the cops saying us french guys (i not french) always needing to fuck when you want and how us new tenants will not takeover his building with such craze.

2. Am I A Sex Addict? 1940s Sex Book Makes Me Wonder

The book talked about the natural sexual urges. It was a book recommdend as i was researching karezza. Apparently people who never become comfortable with the natural sexual urge that drives all of us...

Causes sex addict tendencies as such people just cant handle the internal intensity. As a result they try to ease the tension through excessive masturbation not realizing were making our body even more tense.

I used to fap fap fap just trying to rid myself of such feeling. If not, I manifest through a wild sex life (I have had some insane public sex)

My 1st monogamous relationship confirmed this 1940s book about tension and how touch from the opposite sex can help subdue this tension which would transform into blissfulness...

My gf and I would have some AMAZING cuddle sessions. At times it looked like I was trying to wrap our souls. She too could feel the intense pleasure it was orgasmic.

Well...

3. I Broke Up With GF And In 90 Days I Travel For 1st Time In My Life

Lets just say these women are going to be so lucky...

I will not watch porn nor fap so around day 90 will be my first opportunity to have sexual experiences again. This is going to be a life changing experience regardless

4. My Inner Workings Have Shifted

I am on this path of surrender along with the growth of self-control and will power. I have come to embrace how I am and what the make up of my physical being has become.

This time around I think I can do this no problem...

We shall see, I have a handful of ways to deal with any issues that comes up but will reveal over time as the days go by.

Day 1 was easy although I already took note while watch pool party videos. I would unconsciously be checking out the women with nice asses and drift into thinking about how easy such an environment would be and how I could potentially provide the woman with a wild sexual experience.

Lets just say this is gonna be an interesting ride as I now see why a chick back in 2013 called me a sex addict. She was shocked at the frequency of sex and the need for no brake. She even told her best friend as she claimed I am an addict who just has self control. (If you ever met me i dont talk nor think about banging chicks, i just execute if i want it)

In actuality its due to excessive masturbation to basically exhaust my sexuality which also never hindered my ability to get laid nor get it up even if blackedout.

Only thing was that while out and about I had less of a drive to pull chicks so I just did it when I was in the mood like a normal person...

If i didnt fap for 2-3 days then I was most likely going to give a woman the chance to fuck even if meant having sex in the club. #SexAddict

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Here I am at Day 1. I swear I'm less confident after I started fapping again two weeks ago after stopping for a month. If I got nervous during an approach with an average girl then fucking something is wrong.

Should have came back to this thread sooner. Well back to it. Need to put more of my nervous energy into working out than into fapping.

I notice that if I've fapped, then for the next 24h I have no motivation to talk to girls. After 48h back to normal, after 72h motivation strong.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Yeah same here. Nofap makes me more aggressive and motivated to go out and talk to girls. I haven't fapped since 2/14. I always ask myself before a possible relapse, would I prefer to fuck a real girl or fap? My biggest challenges for me are random wood, especially in the morning. Makes me want to edge. Also if i'm not getting any in real life then I try to convince myself that I have needs. Anyway, I am done with fapping for life. I have made the decision. Has anyone noticed better gains in the gym?

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
This is Day 3 and the urge is killing me. I just woke up early morning because mentally I've just been wanting to fap.

Going to do some crunches and push ups to relieve the tension I'm feeling. I think it's just due to naturally high T, and I'm not actively hitting the gym as much as I should be. I should be doing more than cardio/something non-strenuous and not using the "because I have work to do" excuse to avoid it. It's a cop out can't do that.

Hopefully this will be the first step to positive change. Cheers.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Nofap is a great way to begin to undo the damage - physical, mental, spiritual - from porn and internet intrigue... and the damage goes deep.

Way of the Superior Man by David Deida has so much good information about better ways to experience the (eventual) release:

"Ejaculate Up the Spine
For most men, ejaculation involves spewing their energy and semen out through their genitals. Afterward, they feel they have released stress. The superior man's orgasm more often explodes up his spine and into his brain, from there raining down through his body like an ambrosial bliss of rejuvenation. The technique for converting depletive orgasms into rejuvenative orgasms involves contracting the pelvic floor near the genitals and drawing energy upward along the spine, though the use of breath, feeling, and intention."

and

"Rather than fantasizing or entertaining inward sexual imagery of any kind, remain totally present, aware of your own body, breath, and mind, and especially attentive to your partner. Break the masturbatory habit of inward fantasy by consciously practicing sex as a relational play of love with your partner."

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I tried to do noFap challenge long term many times with relapse usually around 7th day (average)
But I remember few years ago when I managed it to take it over three weeks that in this time (started about 12th - 13th day since beginning) that girls and women in general were looking at me, usually with little smile - not everytime, but it was change, I actually cold approached few girls, no real closes, but I managed to get few real numbers and were able to lead conversation out of nothing and even take them for a beer out of their daily plan.

So today when I have finished my bachelor's degree and put some other stuff in past days/weeks into order I think that today is good day to give it at least month straight as I am addicted (porn often goes into my schedule and taking hours of time).
But if things will go good I wont stop at day 30 just to jack off, I will continue instead.

Of course no "last jerk" and I will post here updates on how it is going.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Just posting to renew my commitment to this. I had a decent little streak going (3 weeks) until last night, and now I feel shitty in the aftermath. I also drank for the first time in several weeks last night, and the two often go hand in hand for me. I guess the upside is that I'm putting together longer streaks these days, so surely progress is slowly being made.

I will say that relapsing wasn't even all that enjoyable once that brief, initial buzz wore off. It was as if I continued more out of habit than out of any real desire to fap/watch porn.

Prior to relapsing I can say that I was feeling a bit more energetic on average, and mentally I had more clarity and confidence. Girls were definitely responding in a positive way due to the way I was carrying myself and the energy/confidence I was projecting. Today I just feel drained physically and mentally.

I've also realized that I need to get serious about some form of meditation again. The most impressive streak that I had in the past (150 days) was due in part to the fact that I had built a strong daily meditation habit. I believe that meditating regularly helped me build the mental framework that allowed me to overcome the urges when they arose, and to channel the newfound energy into more positive activities.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I am on Day 5, I think I got this under wraps due to a major mindset shift following a path of surrender in life... (I wanna see this is probably how people feel when they surrender to a high power within religion)

That said, is it BAD that I have been watching party vids and overall looking at normal pictures of women i stumble across on social media?

While it motivates me to see the party vids I notice I end up searching for pool parties just to see the madness amongst women showing some skin...

I currently am in a complete overhaul of my life and so far I feel AMAZING. It is a subtle feeling whereas before I felt like a heroin addict just taking another hit and indulging in the high.

P.S...By day 3 i was having morning wood and internally I feel a high level of "potential" energy which I use to focus on other challenges and rituals I have gave myself due to now enjoying a life of NoFap. I plan on giving up NoFap 100% while eventually going back to viewing porn for research purposes only.

Good to hear, DL.

In my mind, looking at party pics for arousal is not a good practice, but also an indicator of progress. It means you are rewiring your brain back to the primitive sex drive that is inside us all.

At the other end of the rabbit hole, there are men who cannot get off to hardcore porn, always looking for that next extreme flick to get their dopamine bump. There are men who are in serious relationships, marriages included, who cannot get their dicks hard and orgasm for the woman they have pledged commitment, time, and money towards.

When you quit masturbating, your mind desires ANYTHING sexual. Based on my experience, this is a good thing. I notice many more girls in real life and feel a stronger sense of attraction towards them.

Players like us all have high sexual energy, but the key to success is how we translate that energy. Looking at pictures on the internet is not a good outlet for sexual energy. Instead, practice turning away from these webpages and appreciating women in real life. It takes time, but after a while the party pics will no longer be appealing.

Hope this helps and I hope to hear more about your mindset changes.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I'm not getting much out of masturbating anymore. It used to be a more pleasurable experience, but I'm starting to become aware all I'm doing is whacking off to 2D images and not the real thing. I feel increasingly more disconnected from porn. There's too many things lacking from the experience of going Hand Solo.

Day 62. Haven't made a 90 day run in a while. I've had regular sex all year so I think I'll make it.

This is a technique that has definitely helped me.

I suggest everyone, especially those who are just to starting, to log your experiences in a journal or on a forum such as this.

When you end up jerking off, write down what factors were at play. How you felt, time of day, what started you down the road to PMO, how much porn did you look at it, what kind, where did you jerk off, everything. Then, write how you feel afterward and discuss with yourself if you think it's worth it. Do you actually feel better? Or is it a temporary high?

After a while you'll be able to target the exact triggers (for lack of a better term) that cause you to relapse, and then you'll avoid it.

For me, the biggest was being home too much. Now, I try to spend as much time away as I can. I'll go to the gym just to be away, do some cardio and stretching. Need to do work? Coffee shop.

I was also guilty of needing to cum before going to sleep. The best fix was getting my sleep in check, exercising every day to tire myself out, avoiding blue light at night, turning my phone off at a certain time, and generally prepping for sleep better. The reason why I couldn't sleep wasn't because I needed to jack off, but because my sleep routine include masturbation. Once I developed a better sleep routine, I don't even think about it anymore.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Been practising since New Year. Right now, day 8. I relapsed but not much - just did it once 8 days ago and once a week before that, and once a week before that. The worst time is early morning - I deal with it by weighing pros and cons and how I felt immediately after that in the past - first few minutes great/good due to a dopamine shot but then laziness would creep in, lack of alertness and general malaise for half a day, thus low productivity and guilt involved as a consequence.

I also spend lots of time outside home, wake up early so am sufficiently tired at night. I noticed that if my diet is rich in meat, I feel an increase in my sex drive. Generally, no fap/restriction on fap motivates me to approach, however after 4-6 days motivation subsides a bit and is on 'low alert'. Not sure how to sort it out to boost my sex drive which is somewhat, I feel, lacking.
