So is anybody still doing no fap 2016? Haven't heard anything about it since January 3rd.
Almost a month in and about to lose hope and give up, I need to know somebody else is trying too
Day 42 here.
I feel like I dont even want to touch my dick anymore. Which is not that bad, considering I'm gonna do a full year this time.
I haven't fapped for 28 days and the results are visibly spectacular.
>more trendy haircut
>grew 6 inches (6'4 now)
>confident enough to voluntarily do public speaking
and to achieve all of these all I had to do was stop touching myself like a heretical rancid cunt.
>tfw going to heaven
>tfw getting first sex 2 days from now
Listen man it's probably best to just go as far as you can you're not gonna make a whole year. I know this because i have a friend who literally couldnt orgasm. he would still masturbate every now and then because he'd still get pent up but hed go months at a time.
well in 2012 we challenged him to no fap 2012 and he said it would be easy.
He succeeded and said it got really fucking difficult by time December hit. and after that year of not fapping he was magically able to have his first orgasm.
point is though, unless you cannot have orgasms, making it a year is gonna be tough.
It's a first step. No reason for you to get do passive aggressive here, jerking off a normal amount is fine, but we all know the majority of people here jerk off way too much and can't reduce that without stopping entirely first.
Seems to me to be utterly meaningless. Why not force yourself to bounce a tennis ball ten times every morning. It's not something you want to do but it shows self control and you can still fap.
I don't get this at all or why this shows you have any more or less self control compared to stopping or starting any other kind of repeat action.
There is literally nothing wrong with the occasional fap. If you were jerking it 10 times a day then sure, cut down but there are better things to force yourself to stop doing, like eating too much or spending the entire day on the internet
M8, the average r9ker jerks off far more than is recommended or normal. The average 20-something male doesn't masturbated more than 2-3 times a week, but the average person in these threads masturbated that much in a day.
>the occasional fap
I know, I already posted that m8.
Upon some weeks of heavy introspection, I eventually came to realize my abject state, evoking abhorrence. I had taken my belt and struck myself several times out of sheer disgust with myself. Afterwards, I had deleted all of my porn, threw out my caffeine pills and poured my alcohol into the sink.
My repugnant reliance on substances has deluded and ruined me. I've wasted far too much time in escapism, enough that I had unknowingly lost sight of reality. I had become lost, simply existing without any purpose due to lack of values to guide me.
Now that I realize, I must initiate great measures to undo what has been done, actually changing myself for the better like I know I should've been doing, and have been wanting to do all this time. Because if I do nothing then surely before I know it, it will be too late to experience anything substantial. Therefore I'll utilize the suffering and use it to craft myself into something I can respect upon looking in the mirror.
I believe dropping porn is of dire importance to achieve any sort of fulfillment. Think about it, our biological purpose is to spread our seed, and because we do that everyday, several times a day, we've no need to increase our value as we've deceived our brains into false fulfillment. But aren't you burdened by the lethargy and guilt after you've orgasmed?
The porn is louche here, as we'd not be addicted to masturbation were it not for it. It does obstruct your view of women, and arouses loathing for yourself. But it's of course easier to remain a slave to your body's desires, to falsely believe it works for you, that you've control over it. It all boils down to what you value.
Do you value fulfillment? The road to fulfillment is not easy, as asceticism is required. To craft your lifestyle into an abstemious one involves great suffering, but so does persisting as a reprobate. The answer of in which way you should be suffering should be obvious, as through only one method are you exploiting that suffering.
this this this tbqh
>stop fapping because i decided it was degenerate
>want to get college work done
>want sex badly
>cant fap, too fat for gf
>ss makes me builtfat
>bitches love that shit
yes i occasionally relapse, but going from 3-7 times a day to once every few weeks has had such a huge impact on my mental well being. I honestly think its whats been holding me back for years, the constant fatigue, complacency, shit memory, depression etc being caused by me jizzing my male qualities and energy into a tissue.
I am tired of being a manlet. maybe I'll give this no fap thing a go
I'm doing no porn. I think this year will be the year I give it up, every time I give in and fap to porn I feel more disgusted with myself. It's not even that I think giving up porn or fapping will fix all my problems, I just don't want to be addicted to porn anymore. It does me no good whatsoever.
Let it burn greatly instead. LET THE FIRE OF YOUR WILL BURN YOUR SOUL.
nofap for huge periods of time is pointless I agree, but taking a break for a week can have it's advantages. Sometimes I get bored of fapping and decide to take a week off, when that week is done I get super horny and get much larger orgasms than when I am regularly fapping.
