RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
No porn for 23 days. Have fapped maybe 3 or 4 times.

Having sex with a semi-regular and boners are getting stronger and I can keep them for longer, even when wrapped up. Can go 2-3 times in one night which I haven't done in a long time.

Not sure if it's a one-off, will continue and observe and report back.

Has everyone here watched this: http://yourbrainonporn.com/your-brain-on-porn-series

I just watched it about a week ago and it blew my mind. Definitely makes it easier to stay motivated in the fight to kick the porn habit.

It definitely makes sex way more enjoyable. I noticed that I can't cum though when I'm having sex when I haven't fapped in a while.

I appreciate sex a lot more now that I've started this haha. Awesome.

I've done 2 weeks, 3 weeks and one month before, trying to see how long I can go this time, 28 days so far. I'd love to go a whole year but I admit it's very difficult.

Agreed. When you truly understand how something harms you, it becomes 10x easier to resist.

It's like the difference between knowing that a slice of cake is "bad for you" in the general sense, versus knowing how carbohydrates shut down the fat-burning process, how gluten pries apart your intestinal wall and releases toxins into the bloodstream, how hydrogenated oils weaken cell membranes where they replace proper fatty acids, etc.

Knowledge is power. If you're having trouble staying motivated, I highly recommend checking out the series and learning exactly how disastrous massive amounts of dopamine stimulation can be.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
28 days no porn. I've been fapping maybe once every 5 days. Quite honestly it hasn't been that hard to give up the porn...sometimes when I'm bored I feel the urge to jump onto Pornhub but can resist rather easily by just going to read a book or do some push ups.

Can't say I feel more focused or more energetic, but I can say my boners are stronger and loads are bigger.

Will keep going.

Anyone having problems with blue balls doing this?

When I do fapp or bang I like to prolong the pleasure for myself bringing myself to the edge of climax several times before release. If I do this after missing a day or 2 blue balls occurs within like 10 mins and I feel like Iv been kicked in the nuts when I bust.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Here's my story:
I started nofap a few years ago, even before this thread was started, and can testify from personal experience that this definitely works. Before that, I masturbated to porn almost daily, and suffered all the depression and erectile dysfunction that comes with it. Coincidentally, that period when I was a porn addict was also the worse and most depressing times of my life. I haven't watched porn or masturbated at all for maybe the past 2 years if not longer, and I have no desire to.

Speaking as a guy who's been practicing no fap for a few years, I noticed your body tends to adapt itself to the frequency of sex that your're having.

If I haven't banged a girl in a while, say a few weeks, the first time I have sex I'll have some difficulty getting, or maintaining a boner. However, the following times it becomes much easier. So for instance, I meet this girl after a 4 months dry spell. We then attempt to have sex, and after quite some difficulty, I finally manage to hold my boner long enough to cum. We try again 2 days later, and getting a boner becomes a bit easier.. try again 2 days later its even easier.. until I reach the point where I can fuck multiple times a day with no problems.

If I stop seeing the girl... Ill be super horny for maybe like the next week, and then the process will have to begin over again.

So, my theory on this is there is no need to ever masturbate whatsoever, and your body will simply naturally adapt itself to your sex habits. Knowing this, If I haven't fucked in a few weeks, I'll be sure to keep a viagra on me just in case... at least for the first time.

As this is a constant learning process for me as well, I'm wondering if I should incorporate a masturbation schedule for when I'm on a dry spell to avoid the above problem.

Also, considering I'm 24 years old and never had a wet dream in my whole life, I probably assume my libido is simply naturally a bit lower than the average of most guys ?

I'm hoping someone here who's been practicing no fap for at least 1 year can comment on their experiences as well.

And to the new guys here just testing this stuff out, all I can say is stick to it, and try to adapt a zero tolerance policy. Fapping to porn once per week, or even once per month is never okay, a mistake I made in the past which extended my recovery by much longer.

Lastly, even after you've completely recovered from the damage porn has done, your quality of life will improve in so many aspects but it still won't become roses and flowers. You'll still have to put efforts to do your approaches.. You'll still have days when you turn down your girl because your're not in the mood at that time... and you'll still have to deal with the daily annoyances and lows of life.

I've been riding the no fap train for two and a half years now, and I've definitely noticed something similar. I always attributed it to nervous jitters though, as the first time is almost always the most stressful fuck. Once I'm past that and I KNOW the bang's going to happen, I seem to relax and have a much easier time getting and staying hard.

To add to this, I've ended dry spells by banging an ex or old fuck buddy where I was immediately hard and didn't have to "warm up," so to speak, which again I attribute more towards being comfortable with the girl/lack of stress than any particular biomechanical feedback loop. Not ruling it out though, it's definitely an interesting theory.

Quote:So, my theory on this is there is no need to ever masturbate whatsoever, and your body will simply naturally adapt itself to your sex habits.

While I'm a big fan of the primal living paradigm, and of letting your body naturally run itself, I can't recommend doing this. Raging libidos are like male hamsters: the hornier we get, the worse our decision making becomes, as we start rationalizing whatever choices we'd need to make to get laid. Personally, I'm generally at my most rational right after I bust a nut.

Quote:If I haven't fucked in a few weeks, I'll be sure to keep a viagra on me just in case... at least for the first time.

Agreed. Just having a pill on me lowers the performance anxiety a substantial amount, even if I end up not using it.

Quote:As this is a constant learning process for me as well, I'm wondering if I should incorporate a masturbation schedule for when I'm on a dry spell to avoid the above problem.

I generally masturbate once every 7-10 days, when the urge seems to be at its zenith and has become a real obstacle to getting shit done. And it also solves the issue I mentioned above, of getting thirsty and doing things you wouldn't normally do in order to get laid.

Quote:Also, considering I'm 24 years old and never had a wet dream in my whole life, I probably assume my libido is simply naturally a bit lower than the average of most guys ?

I'm about your age and have never had a wet dream either. My longest no-fap streak was 78 days, and while I feel like I made a full recovery I never once splooged the bed during that time. I'd be interested in hearing if other guys had similar results.

Quote:And to the new guys here just testing this stuff out, all I can say is stick to it, and try to adapt a zero tolerance policy. Fapping to porn once per week, or even once per month is never okay, a mistake I made in the past which extended my recovery by much longer.

Absolutely. If you do decide to jerk it from time to time, do it to thoughts of bangs past or that hot girl you saw at the grocery store. Abstain completely from anything even remotely close to porn. Porn is the real enemy here, not masturbation.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Day 56

Not much of a difference in any of the emotions lets say from the last 15 odd days. Getting early morning hard-ons which 56 days back I could not even imagine.

34 days to go before I masturbate again. What's more important is that after 17 years of porn, these 56 days have convinced me that I'm never watching that shit again. At least never consistently.

The self-confidence derived out of this has also resulted in another streak for me - 34th day of meditation.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Much like the original post says, I'd like to make a Google group for forum members who are trying to quit and improve their life in other ways at the same time.

Or if anyone wants an accountability partner let me know. I'm doing a long-term challenge and could use support.

if you are interested send me a private message.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I've laid off porn for about a week and I already feel like I could pound a hole into concrete. After a couple days, I could not focus on anything but trying to get off. Due to other changes I've made, I think I have the highest testosterone level I've ever had. I wasn't this horny even when I was a teenager. I'm still going strong on no porn but I'm already starting to feel like I need to move closer to one of the college towns within driving distance so I can get some SNLs.

RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
I've found running game helps stop the temptation to frap. I spent a month frapping away to Internet porn as a way to deal with depression and life issues. Then I decided to change things: I vowed every time I felt the need to frap I would go out and run game. And so far it's working.

I haven't gone for a full year without fapping, but my best streak was 150 days. Still, I had a very similar situation as you. After awhile it seemed like I went into something of a permanent flatline in regard to my libido. I know that most people say that you just have to ride it out, and that eventually your libido will come roaring back in a big way.

However, after being without any real sex drive for at least a couple months I finally cracked and started fapping again (which unfortunately led to a full relapse back into porn). I don't know that the situation would have improved much if I had continued down the same path, and I hated the feeling of not knowing if I'd be able to get aroused whenever I was with a new girl.

Thus, I think that the ideal strategy (for me at least, and possibly for you) might be to establish some sort of regular masturbation schedule just to keep that flame alive. Like Isaac said, I find that every 7-10 days, give or take a couple, seems to be a good strategy. Currently I'm shooting for 30 days of no fap/no porn just to jumpstart the process, but then I'll probably get into that fapping routine while staying porn free.

And as for the wet dream thing, I had never had one either until it finally happened during a couple of my longer no fap streaks. Felt kind of weird, but also awesome knowing that it was a sign that my brain was actually recovering.

Something I will never understand is why masturbation is detrimental for some and not for others, like I have friends who say that they masturbate everyday and they don't have the same effects that I have. I will literally get sick if I masturbate but if they masturbate, they will be totally ok.

Day 6 in. Umpteenth try. My way of keeping my libido down is by dieting. Just came off a 24 hour fast yesterday. Zero libido. I've also been doing IF. Shooting for two weeks.

David took his men with him and went out and killed two hundred Philistines and brought back their foreskins. They counted out the full number to the king so that David might become the king's son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage. 1 Samuel 18:27

5 weeks in and failed. Huge mess too which took awhile to clean. I keep thinking about banging anything that moves and eventually looked up celebrity breast measurements... Won't name celebrities so I don't look them up again, however British celebrities have fantastic tits.

I started no Porn at the beginning of the week, and will try to keep it going until I get a bang.

I'm going to SEA in October so hopefully shouldn't take too long.

Dude, why the hell are you trying to lower your libido? Huh

One of the main reasons NoFap and especially No Porn is touted as being good for you is because it can increase your libido and testosterone levels.

This forum is primarily about banging chicks and making sure your libido is high gives you a strong incentive to go out and make that happen.

Hayley Atwell was one... Brook would have been too much. I had the hubris thinking that I could survive just looking at a few pictures. In another week burkas would have done me in. Why are British actresses so much bustier than American?

I'm thinking it might be better to fap without images, but its tricky to do. Haven't done that since Junior High school. There is an insanity that seems to happen if I can't get out much.

Not doing it on purpose, but I've been on a cutting diet. Low carbs, high fat high protein. Every time I reduce my caloric intake my libido takes a nose dive. Helps as far as curbing appetite to fap. So far its not bad, I'm on day 9. Following a clean diet + Lizard of Oz's supplement routine (shout out btw). Morning boners are back. Still getting occasional cravings. Guaranteed lay coming in the next week and half, so will report back then on how long I'm able to last.
