The NoPorn / NoFap Thread - For Those Who're Serious

I fell off the wagon ten days ago, after a couple months. Cravings did surface for days but I reckon I'm over the hump for now. No prawns were injured during my fall ;)

I think it's important to sort of identify as someone who "used to do that, but doesn't anymore". For someone like myself who doesn't spend much time around women this should be achievable.

I was watching Kobra Kai, as some posters were discussing it in the TV thread, and it was a good diversion until I came across a pool scene in episode 2: young women in bikinis and party music. There's always got to be this stuff inserted into TV to watch out for.

"Don't know / not sure" ??? I guess that should be translated as "Yes, in shameful quantities"

Some grey areas exist such as whether say...a microbikini model Or pinup counts as porn. There’s a good amount of things that are titillating but straddle the line on whether or not they fit the definition of porn.

Does anyone else here experience crippling rage at around day 7-10? I just start becoming so snappy aggressive and just down. Life suddenly becomes just so heavy

As others suggest, the religious angle is probably something we all can work on.

Besides that I notice now that I hold a lot of tension in my body, like in my belly and groin muscles. So while I don't want to come at you with the slap-worthy comment, "have you tried yoga?", a little more self care goes a long way with regards to muscle tension. Tense and release the muscles; breathe; stretch. I find myself doing deep breaths of all kinds a whole lot more. While we may resist this because it looks like a sigh at times - admission of defeat! - I see it more as an act of humility. And with more focus on your breath comes more nuance and control.

Another thing: constipation. The big C gets me randy for a while, so make sure your guts and hydration are in order.

Chalk this up to placebo and pretentiousness if you must but I find myself enjoying classical music a whole lot more than before.

26 days have been the maximum number of days I successfully abstain from masturbation. As far as I can remember, I've had two streaks in my life. The first lasted 21 days 6 years ago, and the second was 26 days in July 2020. However, during those periods, I watched some porn and Instagram which was the reason I began masturbating again. Right now, I'm been successfully abstain from watching porn for two weeks, thanks to blocking most of the apps in my phone and websites on my computer that may contain porn. My goal for the rest of September is break my record of 26 days, after that, I'll see if I can go longer than that. I heard that after 90 days it becomes easier. I hope that I can make it. Please pray for me if you care. God bless all of you!

Day 3 here. Roosh's last streaming really touched me deeply. I hope I can do it, but I feel weak right now. The worst thing about my addiction is that I deeply hate everything about porn industry, I think it's degrading to an unimaginable point. Many people end with their souls destroyed and even dead after leaving this satanic cult called pornography. How can it be good for me or anyone to masturbate in front of the screen? It's pathetic and disgusting, and I don't know why I have been doing it for so many years.

One of my dreams is to get married with a nice girl and have kids. I know it's extremely difficult right now in the Western world to have a normal relationship (I will write about the Spanish hell in a specific thread, divorce and gender laws in places like Germany are a joke compared with those I have in my home country, Spain), but at least I want to be the type of guy who deserves it.

I would be glad to read your replies or private messages. Thanks for reading me. I felt that I needed to write it.

Don't feel discouraged! I myself have failed in the past two months after abstaining for 26 days. Having small victories like the one I had really makes you a little bit more hopeful and optimistic that the next time it will be 27 days, next time 28 days, and so on. Also, don't forget to read the scriptures and/other spiritual books and resources. Exercise is always good, cleaning your room, and cooking can take your mind away from immoral thoughts. No te des por vencido!

To be fair, what is not considered pornographic today (bikinis, thongs, tight yoga pants, sheer pants or tops, slingshot tops, spaghetti strap tops, short shorts, low-cut tops) was considered pornographic in the past and in healthy societies. How far we have fallen when "good girl" today dresses like a prostitute of old!

My rule of thumb: if a picture, image, or movie of a woman sexually excites me/causes a hard on I consider it pornographic, regardless of intent, and avoid.

The being/drives/motives of the woman is also an influence, e.g.

These women obviously dedicate a significant portion of their life to their appearance. They likely think their dress and manner is lady-like, with an acceptable amount of risque.



While this girl looks like a simple girl who just needs a few more clothes on:

The two western women are dressed like the typical sort of Mormon females I would see at church singles events. I would say they are dressed quite modestly and look nice. As for the Filipina, I would say she is dressed just a bit immodestly for her culture. But then she is probably a province girl, and of course this picture is meant to capture the male gaze and get her a western man. The average young Filipina, at least around the small city I live in, would probably not go around dressed like that. They are a conservative people, on the whole. A girl might wear that outfit for a beach party, while in America you would see women in the same age group wearing bikini's, even if they are not swimming.

They have the Tomi Lahren look - unapologeticly liberal.

When I was younger I used to think that this type of women were probably the best around - women who went horse riding in my locality. But now I realise, like Lahran they are, absorbed in status and possessions and that their whole demeanor is set around obtaining more of those thing, monkey branching etc.

These type of women sprinkle in a few baubles of homeliness, but it's ultimately window dressing. This is a good example of such a woman who show you how important things of real meaning are:




The issue is that we have so many men obsessed with bobs, legs etc. that they will either sit at home pulling themselves to a dribble, direct all their attention at some form of lower form of the above described women, or use less attractive women as some sort of short- mid- long-term sex device.

And women are feeding into that loop by sexualising and developing mind games to try and hook in successively better and better men.

So long as you are in one of those modes you are going to struggle to find a life partner.

You know ever since I was young I always wondered why the elites allowed the Internet to exist? It was generally a place where you could find a lot of information contrary to the elites "narrative". I remember browsing websites like Infowars back in 06 (When Alex Jones was an actual genuine conspiracy theorist and not a meme) and Rense and thinking to myself that these governments are only tripping on their own creation.

But ever since I started to take NoFap more seriously back in 2016 I realised that the easy distribution of pornography, social media and wasteful information made the internet well worth the return of investment for them. Imagine the millions of people on the world hooked on porn, social media and unnecessary bs like youtube drama or online gaming? I guess the risk paid off. I believe someone said on another thread that the Internet is full of junk now and speeds have gotten slower? I wonder how much of that junk consists of porn?

Anyway The elites have got significant populations in many countries hooked on all types of smut without the need to send in an army or paid agents to distribute it like in the days of the opium wars:


And most porn is for free so there certainly was an orchestrated effort to finance that industry. Maybe the next opium war will be the porn wars? Where a "war" will start because an independent nation with it's own great internet firewall is surrounded by hostiles who are financing a pornographic black market in said nation? Knowing how satanic these people are I would not rule it out..
 
Just hit a month. Feeling like I have all this positive energy/motivation burning up into a huge flame inside of me.

I started taking up boxing, already noticed small weight loss and improvements in cardio and fighting form. I also started finally making an effort to read the Bible cover to cover, already almost done with Exodus. I've also made an effort to avoid as much titillation as possible which was mostly social media as I have already blocked porn a while ago.

I feel like I'm at the point now where its become a daily habit to not do it without having to consciously think about it. Only problem is I sort of have that inner animal instinct in me where when I see a woman in person that I find attractive, I feel compelled to court her at all costs even if shes a coworker that I could risk losing my job over, basically I feel like I'm a teen all over again lol.
