>5 days into my nofap week
I'm actually doing it, I didn't think I could make it this far
I mean, besides the fucking weird heart flutters and dick tingles whenever I so much as brush past a girl I feel a bit more energetic these past few days, how far are you guys
Yo guys, today is my fourth day and tonight I already had wet dreams with nocturnal emission.
Is that good? or bad?
I started the nofap because I might have porn induced ED... got lucky with a girl a moth ago and had troubles getting hard (Was my first time so it might be nerves but still...)
Also normal porn does little effect on me and I want to lower my fetishes and get milder.
good point senpai, how far you make it
>That's fantastic big bro! Keep it up :3
I am 7 days into my 60 day nofap also going for no porn 2016
Feels pretty good the haven't even felt the need to fap yet
I get a massive bonner when we kiss or grind, when she was sucking me out and even when I was eating her... but when we went down to sex and put on the condomn my erection fades away.
Anyone had this problem?
Ended my biggest streak of 92 days hard mode in mid December. I've been cranking out loads here & there since. Not using porn. I feel like I hit a plateau benefit wise & my sex drive went down. I do like the extra fire I have when on a long streak.
>been 4 days
>was kinda horny thinking about stuff
>nah sex drive still sad
>was feeling not so depressed this morning
>depressed now again
>spending my day by myself
>was wanting to try n get some girls
>nah im just a sad lonely creepy cunt
im getting a blood test i guess in fucking april (i would want it fucking sooner but i cant..). think i got some problems with my testosterone
I never respond to these stupid threads, but I live with my girlfriend and have accidentally no-fapped for a little over a year.
Doesn't change your life, but I guess you aren't as desensitized. Honestly don't know, which is actually evidence you shouldn't make these threads.
It's still kinda nice to look at it. I mean people look at hot girls when they're outside without fapping, people go to strip clubs without fapping or so i assume as i've never been to one. And some guys hang pictures of girls on their walls without fapping whenever they see them.
I had it, mostly due to nerves and lack of reference from being Inside a vagina. Everytime i was about to enter i got this psychological block and images of failed attempts flashed Before my eyes. Nofap and cialis helped, but really the only thing you need to do is to relax.. But it is easier said than done. Good luck and hang in there. It will work it self out eventually, it is not the end of the world if you loose your boner Even though it may seem like it. The more you stress it the Worse it gets.
Haven't bashed since Tuesday night, not planning on having one until sunday after I come back from army selection(gotta have dat drive for that shit) Although I might just continue no fap after that if I can.
alternatively hop over to All Day Chemist and buy low dose viagra.
you will be able to go multiple times and the confidence boost will ween you off of taking anything. seriously you won't need it after you get into a routine of absolutely not worrying about it. all mental bro
After a month or so transition to noporn. It's working for me pretty well. I still want to fap but without porn I don't jump up the second I'm bored or feel a tingle and go look at porn. So I get distracted long enough for days to pass before I hit a point where I really want to whip it out vs boredom fapping.
I started on the 2nd instead of the 1st, but I'm still going strong. Deleting pr0nz off my phone and leaving my computer at work has made it a little easier.
Mostly just have to keep the brain distracted.
>Start nofap early December, skeptical that it would work
>Occasionally look at porn on /gif/ to keep my libido on point
>1 week later, so fucking horny I'm getting a boner from tile patterns
>2 weeks in, my balls are in literal pain from not being emptied
>No wet dreams, even if I sleep without pants on and hump my bed to fall asleep erect
>3 weeks, pain has spread to abdominal area, unable to walk without being hunched over
>Still looking at porn everyday for a while, edging as well to boost MUH TEST
>End of week 4, right testicle and abdominal area are too sensitive to touch
>Constant boner, could fuck a tree at this point
>No game, so I have to deal with it myself when the time comes
>Finally cave from sheer pain, take a hot shower with my Sugarstar
>Thank you horsefucker brethren
>Hardly feel pleasure while I bone the fucking thing, but pain recedes for a while
>Reach climax, shoot huge globs of cum clear out the other side of my sugarstar
>Eyes closed in the end because of relief
>Orgasm doesn't even feel good, the pain just stops for a minute
>Open eyes and see red streaked cum all over the wall of my shower
>And then the burning commences
>Urethra and nuts are on fire, literally hunched over in shower unable to move, trying not to pass out
>God kill me, please
>Drink water for 3 days, piss burns like the fires of damnation
>Doctor says its either Epididymitus or Urethritis, but probably a bit of both
>Cannot cum, lift, or do anything at all without retarded pain in gut, basically lay in bed unsure if I should fap or not
>Taking antibiotics and painkillers by the can every fucking day
>I was able to bench a bit more those two weeks, so I guess it was worth it
Keep it up OP, make them gainz
real question here:
are there long-term effects to masturbation? or the negative effects are only short-term?
is there any irreversible effect(s)?
is the bald thing a meme? I feel that my hair is getting weaker, and I've been masturbating a lot (I broke up with my gf and I'm not ready for other girls yet).
the hair is not falling though, just kinda weaker.
whenever i masturbate i notice more hair in the shower drain. whenever i go on no fap there's not as much hair in the shower drain. not conclusive that it causes you to go bald, but i feel like it effects your hair at least a little bit.
> what is observational bias
Set up a mesh to collect hair. One week fap all you like. The following week dont.
Collect the hair, count/weigh and compare. Obviously collect after each week and ensure both samples and dry and free of soap detritus.
Rofl you aren't supposed to edge on nofap.
A. Your reproductive system is not designed to be engorged and aroused for such long periods of time. This is probably what caused your problems.
B. Your dopamine gets super high when you edge, and you never bring it back down to normal levels by ejaculating. Basically edging does even more damage than watching porn and cumming. Your neuro-receptors are probably fried.
My suggestion is fap approx once a day or every other day with no porn. Your brain will de-fry eventually, and you will stay healthy. You can adjust how often you fap depending on how horny you like being. Some guys find that being more horny helps them approach girls, lift, whatever.
Trying to do nofap
Went to doctor because not wanting to have sex with gf very often and not performing as good as I used to.
Thought I had low T
Got blood work back, everything's normal
Doc told me to fap more often. Not just release during sex
I did nofap last September, October and half of November. Felt great, more energy, more sex drive. Started fapping again and my sex drive stalled. Started nofap, thought it would remedy the problem. Believe in God, but think we can fap. Did it for myself. So now I'm at a point where,
Fap=low sex drive
Nofap=low sex drive
Also, like >>35525135 said, I think that once I get one or two times inside a vagina my brain will realize how good it feels and it will be more arrousing for me and I'll find it hot.
Thanks bro It really makes me feel a lot better to read that. I was terrified of ED...
I was a bit drunk and tired, maybe that made it worse
Holy shit just fap in moderation you autists these no fap meme threads need to die already.
Well, I don't know if its placebo or not but my heart speeds up a bit and I pop semi-boners from looking at things that didn't afect me a week ago.
I'll try one month, and depending on the results I'll stop or make it longer.
if you're still looking for any advice, not to sound like a faggot, but meditation in the morning has helped me out. helps me have more control over my mind, so I can focus on my gf and her body more than the thoughts of failure.
iktfb, we'll make it.
the program self control. set 4chan domain as blacklist. set for 24 hours every morning.
or go through your console and disable your computer from being able to access it. can be undone, but is a bit of a pain.
I did 72 days last year, got more confident and better at eye contact and holding conversations with grills although part of me thinks it's just a placebo. When I jacked off again the first time it was thick and yellow from all the built up dead sperm so I've been jacking off weekly since then to keep everything flowing down there and haven't lost the social gains I made.
It's really easy bruh.
I appoint time for activities, and likewise, thoughts.
I tell my self I can't waste time looking at porn at this hour or that. I decide when I will do it. And then I jack off loads.
The when usually happens every 8 weeks. 8 weeks is a good gap.
On Day 7 (decided to quit cold turkey for new years)
I've been getting fuller boners and I instantly get turned on by breh or high test threads. Before nofap I used to never get random boners or had then once in a blue moon. Also I have vivid sex dreams. Can't wait for my girlfriend to drive back down here so I can pump her full of a weeks worth of backed up semen.
The only reason I am in semi-no fap (jerked a bit but never came) this new year is because the gf is in China for Christmas and returns Saturday. I am trying to save up a big load, but what will probably end up happening is I will cum before I even put it in and there wont be any increase in my load and I'll look like a fuckin idiot
I been taking Zinc, L-Argine, and L-Lysine though
I still have no idea if I want to try this shit or not.
I'm not sure I get the point of not masturbating but not using porn might be okay.
I usually use porn as 'inspiration' anyway and finish myself with whatever other thoughts I'm finding myself horny about at the time.
Been with my current girlfriend for over 2 years. She's attractive but I've been getting ED episodes more and more with her. We used to have sex daily now it's down to about 3-4 times a week. I've blamed it on fapping to porn which is why I've quit, but is it really because my body is telling me it's tired of fucking the same pussy for so long?
You do not need to quit jacking off, you need to quit porn. If you quit porn but give yourself the freedom to jerk off whenever you want, you quickly discover that it was actually the porn you were addicted to and not the masturbating.
I quit porno and barely jerk off once per week now. I used to do it twice per day. But the idea of jerking off without being able to look at porn, makes the whole thing kind of boring now. You quickly lose interest in it and just do it once in awhile for healthy physical maintenance reasons.
I think might do it this time and reach full celibacy, because I've gotten a job and that means there is less time for me to get bored and tickle my noodle. Because that's what masturbation is: an attempt to efface boredom. When I was in the army, I didn't fap for maybe 1.5 months, and it didn't feel hard, bad or unpleasant at all. I had plenty of stuff to do, so there was no time for that bullshit. When I ended my streak of not masturbating, it didn't feel as good as you might think. The mental and spiritual clarity brought by abstinence feels better.
>TL;DR: You fap because you're bored and it has become a habbit, there is no other reason.
That's my problem. Since I quit porn, I have about five extra hours per day to kill. I really want some productive hobbies I can replace porn with. I thought about MMA classes or learning a language, but those things don't seem very fun.
Go to KhanAcademy or Codecademy and learn some shit.
Or buy a colouring book for adults. Shit is relaxing as fuck. Pic related.
Probably the biggest point of no fap is regaining your self respect. The gains you get physically, emotionally, and mentally from not jerking off all the time or looking at porn are huge. You get your dignity back, feel more like a man, have a much easier time interacting with people and socializing.
So, if you are still looking at porn and "edging", you are basically getting none of the biggest benefits. Just go back to jerking off, you are not yet ready for the golden path...
This. Pornography is an artificial stimulant with most of the same negative physiological effects as narcotics. We have all seen the TED talk about the brain damage chronic porn consumption causes. Eliminate porn and your masturbating will naturally stabilize to the ideal frequency automatically.
Yeah, it is a habit for me. To pass time, and addicted to the high of porn and climax. My job didn't really cure me, I still ended up jerking off in the bathroom. Meaning, i can beat the boredom aspect of it, but I still have trouble overcoming the addictive aspect of the climax. Any suggestions?
I'm a Java developer, so I tend to avoid anything code related while not at work. Coloring book I actually might try, I can see myself getting hooked on that. Though I would prefer something that is fun but also at least partially beneficial to me.
>2 days into nofap
>dream I'm getting chased by a bright blue vampire guy
>eventually push him onto the ground and rip off his clothes (still running away in my mind?)
>he's turned into a busty succubus by the time my dick is out
>benis in vagina :DD
>wake up with jizz all over the sheets
It's not fair, I've conditioned my dick through too much masturbation for this to ever work.
Think this is the board where I yesterday saw this pic of a qt dark short haired gyal in a vintage tracksuit (grey tee and grey shorts and dat ass) covered in heat in a locker room. If anybody could post it again, I would be hella grateful. Thx yall.
Human body fully recovers from masturbation/sex in 2 days.
That includes the full load of semen.
There is no proper scientific study done that proves masturbation to have any lasting psychological or neurochemical impact on anything.
Nofap does nothing.
What you are feeling is placebo.
You are feeling the results because you want to feel them.
Nofap is just a convenient excuse to let go of your inhibitions and let yourself feel what you want to, without the you stepping in and selfsabotaging yourself. An excuse to let yourself feel better.
The truth is that you should be able to feel like that anytime you want to, but you won't let yourself.
You need a lie to cling to.
Be it nofap, some nonsense diet or whatever else, you just can't find comfort without some type of lie to live in.
I tried nofap november and lasted 6.5 days. I just can't fucking do it, I get too horny always, the tiniest things set me off. Now I'm back to twice a day, often a lot more.
It's funny, I have no problems cutting and losing weight as some do. I can just simply not eat. But somehow I can't simply not fap.
Anyway, I didn't notice anything in those 6 days besides being more angry, and pissed with myself for trying this in the first place. Grils did not like me more and I didn't become more alpha.
So I've fapped multiple times a day every day for the last 5 years with enough exceptions to count on one hand despite spending the last year trying a concerted effort to only fap every other day.
All this uneducated people ITT. If you suffer from ED or PE because of porn overstimulation, you need to avoid porn at all costs for a good amount of time. It's also recommended to stop masturbating for that period because porn and masturbation neural pathways are connected due to all the years of masturbation. If you are serious about recovering from porn addiction, I'd strongly advise you to head over to yourbrainonporn.com and read, watch the ted talks or the power point presentation until you understand the science behind this. Yes, it's absolutely real.
130 days porn and masturbation free reporting in by the way. I started all this because I couldn't get it up with girls anymore. I checked my hormones, got blood work done and everything came back perfectly fine. After googling what could cause my ED, I stumbled upon yourbrainonporn.com and it all made sense. Scary shit.
I wish you all the best.
Nah, mate. Read about the history of the site, it's quite interesting how Gary Wilson, the owner and founder of the site, got to start it. There is no fundamentalist or religious motivation whatsoever.
Have you actually tried it though? Huge skeptic/cynic here and holy shit does it make a difference for me. Able to think clearer, respond quicker, better performance and motivation at gym etc. To me, personal experience outweighs scientific evidence, especially when science has always encouraged masturbation and not ever delved into the effects of abstaining. If they have, they've probably been cherry picked studies that aren't necessarily going to show truly accurate results.
Yourbrainonporn.com has nothing to do with Reddit Nofap. Some even suggest that masturbation in moderation can help to improve or kickstart your libido once you've abstained from porn for a few months. It's mostly about no porn because it's such an overstimuli for your brain. Masturbation is not declared being evil. Please inform yourself properly before spreading false information. Gary Wilson even talks about pre internet porn people masturbating all the time without having any negative effects.
there's no point in doing nofap unless you fap like five times a day to scat or shota because of course that's going to weigh on your conscience and yes you should feel bad.
if you wake up with morning wood and get off (like a normal person would do it) then go about your day there's no problem. if you need to do it again to fall asleep, who cares? if you're masturbating in public restrooms and sticking sharpies up your ass then sure make the change but this one thing isn't going to remedy your depression.
