I'm on day 10 of:

-No weed (18 years)
-No cigs (only smoked 2 a day with coffee for the last 3 years, but still that's bs)
-No candy, chips, or sweet baked goods
-NOFAP or porn
-No morning coffee (save $) though I've used caffeine pills + coconut oil instead

Clear mind. Moodiness is gone. Real even keeled and chill. I feel like a different dude and I think some of those habits may have been huge life altering mistakes to where it's hard to admit or discuss.

All this shit is a distraction. It fills up time. I never realized how I was using these activities to distract myself from addressing real issues in my life. Once you toss away the distractions you can't hide from your thoughts and the days become "longer".

I advise all to try the "challenge". I did all this because I had downloaded a habit tracker and somehow it all clicked with me and I decided to go all in. Seeing the little colorful check marks each day on some app is more satisfying than I ever thought. I can't break the streak. Discipline=freedom.

Funny thing is, I think at a certain point I won't want to use it because I've caught myself not even thinking of a few of these habits until I see them on the tracker.

Don't see no alcohol on here, which makes sense since you think marijuana is bad.

Switch it to no high fructose corn syrup, no porn/ no fap and I’ll do it for life or try to.

High fructose corn syrup is in too many drinks

I'm on keto at the moment and home prepping 95% of my meals so this is mainly a one month no fap starter program for me.

I'm in.

In for the no fap. Hope to extend it after.

I'm still eating fruits for sugar. I've been on a cherry addiction lately.

Can we get a clarification on sugar part? Are refined carbs still ok? Rice, pasta, bread?

Yes they are fine. Sweet fruits are fine. Processed foods with sugar is fine. Goal is reduce sugar by 95%.

You need to last the whole month of August. Don't go over strict or else their is risk you will freak out and consume lots of sweets.

Remember the first three days are hard -- then it gets more easy. After a week it starts to get a lot more easy.

The program starts this Thurs which is two days from now.

I'm in. Already in keto so the sugar won't be too big an issue, but there's a bit in the peanut butter I currently use. Other than that I'm sugar free (steak, eggs, and cheese only)

NoFap has been quite the challenge, and I managed to go a month without porn before caving. Lord knows I get stronger with each attempt; this will be an August worth living. Good luck my fellow brethren.

RE: No sugar, porn or masturbation Challenge for August only
I have found whenever you have strong porn or fap urges - your genitals get heated - the temperature goes way up compared to the rest of your body.

If I simply pour over cold water, the mental sexual images disappear almost instant. The images struggle to come back and they will if you let them.

But pour over more cold water and put your thoughts onto something else.

However, if you watch even one second of a porn clip, you are doomed.

I’m concerned as to some of your diet choices that you can’t avoid added sugar or find it hard to get rid of.

Avoid processed candy altogether, like chocolate bars. The combination of industrial grade sugars and saturated fats is terrible.

Desserts are OK as part of a balanced meal, especially if it's homemade, as long as it's not too frequent and of reasonable portion size.

We are now in Day 1 and good luck. Remember the first three days are the hardest then it gets easier.

If you want lasting changes use less will power and connect with the higher power and ask for guidance.

Please keep this kind of humor out of this thread as it will take away and weaken the focus of those who are serious.

RE: No sugar, porn or masturbation Challenge for August only
I don't do porn or fap but sugar is my weakness.

I'm doing no-carb these days.
July 28: no sugar, 18 grams of carbs
July 29: 20g sugar, 70g carbs (I ate out with some girls and shared dessert)
July 30: 8g sugar (lactose from dairy products) - 32g carbs
July 31: 10g sugar (a spoonful of quince jelly) - 18g carbs

I eat high fat low calorie. I find a square of dark chocolate (85% plus) to be a good trick because it feels sweet but there is almost no sugar in it.

Will try to continue low carb until August 17 when I go on vacation.

It is a worthy undertaking. With trepidation over my ability to see it through, I publicly commit to it.

RE: No sugar, porn or masturbation Challenge for August only
Sugar is difficult, I had cookies yesterday before I realized what I was doing.

I’ve been avoiding soda, the web says that ‘juice’ is just as bad so it’s been Perrier and unsweetened tea and I didn’t realize before signing up for this how hard avoiding sugary drinks would be.

About 4 days into this, I guess I didn’t technically fail since we started only today, let’s call the previous stumble a warm up. Without the sugary drinks I’m tasting more sweet in other things, do they add sugar to ketchup?

Porn resistance is also challenging, I slip into jerking it when I see tits on 4chan and reddit and stuff, so I’m steering clear of those. I need some websites that I can browse idly when I’m at my desk though, or maybe I should get a damn book, ugh this sucks.
