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

What do you do for fasting?
I don't eat breakfast/Lunch until 12 in the Noon. And I eat dinner at 6.

Those are 2 meals I have a day. The rest of the time especially after dinner is that I drink water. No snacks throughout the day and night.

There are also threads on this too:



The 2nd form of intermittent fasting is that. You can even do 1 meal a day at noon and not eat anything the rest of the day:


Or you can simply skip dinner and eat breakfast and lunch before noon. And don't eat anything the rest of the day and night.

The food pyramid I believe is a scam. One should eat less carbs and more meat, dairy and vegetables are more healthier.

I've been praying "Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner" 3 times every time I get hit by temptation and I feel myself slipping. It's been working for me. I'm about 34 days in so I'm at the point where women who normally wouldn't draw my attention are now catching my eye so the incidents of being tempted are rising. Saying that quick prayer and also visualizing Jesus while I'm saying it has been working well for me to fight off the attacks.
I actually just slipped up just now. And guess what happened? When I was in the throes of temptation, I did NOT pray like the way I talked about above and ended up succumbing to temptation. I could feel the lust really intensify and dig it's claws into me and instead of praying, I ended not wanting to even think about God and just wanted to lose myself in ecstasy. And that's when I was finished.

Back on the wagon again with lessons learned. God have mercy on me, a sinner.
 
What I recommend all of you is not to hate yourself when you slip. Self-hate increases your compulsion, meaning your abstinence is more compulsion than self-control, and the overall physical and mental benefits, or as I would call them, normalized base-levels, won't occur.

Regarding your libido: the more you are dissatisfied about yourself, your situation, or both, the less likely you want to procreate, this is why your libido is low. Makes sense, doesn't it? You don't want to bring children into the world when the circumstances aren't good.

Also remember: the more you give into lust, the more you are disconnected from God and your spiritual self. Is it really worth it? I know whenever I fall into lust, be it masturbation, chasing after women etc. I don't feel like praying, reading, let alone listening to things that elevate the spirits. When you are not connected to God, you feel a void that burns you from inside out with lust, anger, or compulsion. Tread carefully, my friends.

There is no patent-solution to abstaining, but it helps me to remember always what the consequences for me and those around me will be when I become weak, but never feel guilty - it doesn't help you nor anybody.

Make a spreadsheet. So you can track how many times you PMO'ed in a Month. This is far more encouraging than starting from 0 again and again. This will help you with motivation.
 
Today I've reached 1 year of No Fap. Next month it will be 5 years of No Porn. When I was younger I never would have thought such a thing would be possible. To be honest, I'm not sure the extent that getting older played a part in such a thing. I do feel my libido slowed down a bit recently, but it's hard to tell the cause from the effect. In my mind, porn is by far the more evil of the two, but there is still much to be learned from No Fap as well. Roosh talked at one point about when you have a sexual thought, letting it pass rather than indulging the fantasy in your mind. Fapping encourages you to the opposite, to feed these thoughts and have more of them. I'm not going to be one of those people to say that since doing No Fap I now can bench 500 lbs, have laser focus at all times, and have women flocking to me, but I think it's definitely a worthwhile endeavor for anyone to try. I won't be so conceited as to say I'll never slip up in the future, but I feel safe in saying that I've definitely broken the habit by this point. My only regret is living in the darkness for as long as I did.
 
I've been able to kick the porn habit, totally clean of it now for several months. I had been mostly clean for a few months before that (for maybe a grand total now of about a year, I lost track exactly how long its been) with some relapses here and there, but I eventually just logged into my router and blocked the several porn sites I used to use. The day after doing that the desire for porn totally disappeared and I haven't been back, only explanation would be divine intervention. I took the first step and He took me the rest of the way.

Or really picked me up and deposited me several steps down the road, as I still have a problem with fapping

but the frequency has gone way down. Still more work to do.

So, here's an honest question for other RVFers who are 40+. Does it seem like reduction and ultimately quitting--plus back squats at least twice a week--improves your urinary functions?

I started noticing the change in that function after I got the frequency down, but after hitting the squats a couple times a week on a regular basis its been like Niagara Falls. Can anybody here with a medical background give any insight as to why that might be? Obviously not looking for a diagnosis, but maybe some general thoughts.

Amazin'!

I am at about 7 months and 20 months. I've noted on the previous page on EQ. I've also noticed over the last two weeks an increase in masculine, endeavouring energy. Not huge amounts, but this is the sot of energy that you expend and stump with cooonsoonption. Puedes ser mucho más cariñoso!

I need to get serious about NoFap.

I've been "struggling" with this for a few years now and have only reached a streak of three weeks. I put struggling in quotes because I guess I haven't really made an effort to put a stop to my activities. I know the harmful effects that result from masturbation yet I still do it anyway. I've been having a mental battle with myself for a long time now but it feels like body does whatever it wants to do. No willpower whatsoever.

Whenever I jerk off I feel completely apathetic towards everything around me. This feeling lasts for a few days after the fact and since I can almost never hold a streak for more than a few days, I am stuck in a never-ending cycle of apathy. It feels like my brain is decaying.

I want to feel alive again. Hopefully this is the first step.

In the past year, I had some success in NoFap by praying and also attempting to channel the “energy imbalance” of a lustful desire through exercise, drawing doodles, listening to music, etc. Has anyone else attempted a similar strategy? My mentality is that by giving the energy a way of flowing outward, it can help reduce internal turmoil.

I just wanted to point people who might have missed it to Roosh Hour #56 from a couple weeks ago. There is no news coverage, just call-in chat discussion. I believe one of the callers talks about no fap and Roosh reminds him that according to the ROC, Satan has access to your mind, similar to how God does. So, you may be used to characterizing all thoughts as "natural" but that doesn't make them good thoughts.

I might have found a church to go to, and a car has landed in my lap. God is great!

I'm just over 3 months. I feel like a caged animal every day. I need a girlfriend BAD.

When fapping, I think we are content living lonely lives because of the feeling of artifical lust we experience from pornography. Quit porn and it becomes unbearable. I seriously would rather die than go through life alone like this.

I find it so hard to meet women now, with covid and all, plus moving back in with parents. I work construction, so I make good money, but have no in-person contact with women. I need to find a way out of this hell.

I didn't grow up going to church and don't even know where to start. All churches I know here are either ethnic or flying the gay flag and filled with 60-year-old liberal church ladies
Try to find a Traditional Latin Mass Catholic parish. You won't find any gay flags but you will find based and red pilled priests who will provide the tools you need for your salvation. Not sure where you are but you can DM if you'd like specific help.

Dude you spoke my mind, Just trust me that you are not alone in this. I don’t have any answers for you but know that I am in exactly the same position, although I was living with my aunt not my parents.
