As is usual for these messages, I will begin with some history.

This board began as an initiative by it's previous BO and founder Plague_Doctor, from nofap threads on /pol/ in 2015. In these threads people vowed to make 2015 their nofap year and that's how the board was born. In this time we, and a lot of newcomers, have been on a wild ride. The board became a top 50 board with the influx of mainly /christian/ and /pol/ users, and we became a dead board once again when the hype died down after about 6 months into nofap 2017.

In this time there has been some tremendous progress. The journal threads might mostly be dead now, but there have been multiple people who reached a nofap streak of more than 100 day's, I even saw one guy with a maximum nofap of 176 day's!

But don't think you who has only managed streaks of less than 10 day's to a maximum of 20 are not on the right path as well. Every day, even every time, you don't fap is a step into the right direction. As my predecessor said every year, Even if you fap every other day, that still makes it so you only fapped 182 day's in a year instead of 365. Not that impressive, but a way out has become visible. It is always good to remember that you can make it if you try.

But that's history and pep talk, it's a new yePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I made the three weeks. I’m sure I fucked off on the internet elsewhere quite a bit but not as much as usual here. Holiday shopping definitely doesn’t help. Besides mushroom hunting yesterday I pretty mush spent most of the weekend catching up on /pol/. It surely is an addiction as getting pulled away by householder duties will cause a bit of anger. The time off felt good but I’ll have to make a set schedule for /pol/ since there is still much to learn and irl activism to plan, I just have to stay away from happening threads that aren’t about my area.


I’m sorry to have triggered your mental illness. I hope you kept your streak.

This is a thread for people who are on the verge of giving in.

Post pics that would easily kill your erection/urge to fap. I'd say don't post anything too graphic, but I suppose that's up to the mods.

Sorry if this is shitty material. I have some gore but I'm not sure if that's allowed.

Welcome to /nofap/

This board is for the discussion of nofap, noporn, and the societal implications of fapping and porn.



>1. Stay on topic. The topic is pretty loosely defined here so use some common sense.

>2. Don't post porn. NSFW images will be deleted. Posting NSFW material as a shitty troll attempt will result in a comically long ban. This board is SFW, so keep it that way.

>3. Non-/nofap/pers are welcome to come and question the premise of nofap and to argue against nofap. That said, shitposts, flames, bait, spam, and trolls are not allowed and such threads will be locked or deleted.

Just those three.

edit: Fugg the rules/faq page got nuked and I'm too lazy to recreate it right now.

If anyone needs to get a hold of me try my e-mail at plaguedoctornf@8chan.co.

And because I don't want to clutter the board with excess stickies:

ITT: dump /nofap/ infographs, videos, links, banners and other such things

EDIT: Adding the IRC to this thread because it doesn't need its own sticky.


#nofap on Rizon

For anyone who doesn't know how to access IRC, just click on the following link and it should become pretty apparent:


Rules are basically the same as here only it's going to be less strict on staying on-topic. Though copious funposting will be encouraged, we'll also be able to have real-time serious discussions if we want to. Maybe even work out a little fappers anonymous session.

Is there a list of helpful books, audiobooks, and online guides?

The following two resources are not specifically on the topic of nofap, but they address the cultural programming, psychological needs, and spiritual influences at the root of it:

Understanding Sexuality - https://www.fhu2.org/uspd.html

Fantasy Kills - https://www.fhu2.org/fk.html

These audio programs are from a wise old man who understands women and sex in a way I haven't heard elsewhere, and he has been teaching about it for decades.

I'm not here to tell you that you have to be like me, but I want you to do that Day 300 seriously, I did it. After posting about maybe 2 years ago how to get my voice in proper connection and finally becoming a voice actor(albeit) shitty, getting over parental abuse, and fortifying my will to live. I want to give back to the community and tell you how you can reach this yourself. It's not an easy task, but I'll break it down for people that currently are going through the same pseudo bullshit ADHD attention problems that I had.

1. Never let evil take root.

Just like the picture with the kid killing that socialist cocksucker, just make sure to steer clear from people that don't see the best in you and constantly bring you down, this includes if your parents are drug addicts or lame alcoholics. There is a difference from your parents berating you, those parents WANT you to do better. I didn't have that type of experience.

2. Learn to breathe

Breathing is important not only for running like all the health and fitness retards wnat you to believe, but for general day to day activities like sitting and walking. I firmly believe that the reason people in college or workplaces always complain about being "sweepy" oh goo goo gaga I'm so sweepy is because they are used to sleeping, living, and breathing in hot, disgusting filtered air environments. Go outside, run, walk, lift, eat outside, for fuck sake, sleep outside if the weather isn't too bad. Learn to become something with natural, even if it's climbing on trees or just sitting in the grass, your body will thank you, trust me.

3. Experience things in a different way

This is pretty simple, don't be stuck doing the same thing over and over again everyday, even if you have to go to highschool, university, or work(props if you're a NEET and making some sort of income online) but don't fall victim to an unavoidable habit and make it the center of your attention. Learn to experience things in a different light everyday.

4. Time management

Another simple one that takes a long time to master. Took me my entire 20 years of existence to learn how to properly manaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Until I started to run and do calisthenics in my backyard, the running was done mainly in the cold winter to prepare my breathing patterns for correct muscular configuration, after that I learned to do calisthenics in my backyard and went from doing -1 pushups to about 60(70 on a good day) in a row. That is a real pushup, none of that wide grip sissy bullshit, purely close grip, close to lat pushup, up and down, up and down. Everyday. Also incorporated squats, pull ups and everything for necessarily muscular balance.

Now I didn't self motivate from this stuff, it all stemmed from the fact that when I was starting NoFap I was watching a guy named FODCOM Interactive. You may not know who he is, or even what he does. But I think his older videos(albeit not that good form) gave me that good starting motivation needed to get my life back into shape. I didn't want to watch a video about some bodybuilding "guru" tell me good things about taking supplements and learning how to become a "BEAST!!" fuck that shit. I wanted something new, something weird, something that was going to convey my energy in a new and furious way. FODCOM did that for me. Specifically this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mcq57f3RYLQ

I know this may seem like a big fucking shill, but I swear, it's not. I want people to become the best versions of themselves, I learned that from not only getting out there and figuring what works for me and what makes me a human, but with FODCOM's videos, I became something that I always wanted.

I implore all of you to take the step and condition your mind and your body for the ultimate rewards that it will reap. This is only the beginning for me, the beginning of something that's never going to end.

God speed, you fucking bastards. You guys changed my life.




Absolutly fucking based.

Thanks for the advice and the inspiration.

You keep it up my man.

Well, I'm fucking sick of it, I discovered porn at around age 9, give or take a year, and ever since I've turned into a social recluse. using pornography and masturbation as a stress reliever. Ignoring my problems only caused me more stress, leading me deeper into the hole. I've jacked off to about everything you could think off, but I'm still able to climax to clothed women and just my imagination, oddly enough. Of course the more perverse porn I've seen has burned itself into my mind, unfortunately. I've come to see that it's not just fapping that has a negative influence on my life, it's a lack of healthy routine and too much time on the internet.

I also have a much more shameful confession, I made an account on nofap.com, and I must say, it fucking sucks. I don't know what I expected from a forum but jesus, I can't talk about anything there, just not my kind of people. I'm hoping to find something more by writing my journal here.

Day one

I'm not sure if I should write these at the beginning of the day or the end, perhaps both?

Goals for today:

>Pushups, varied sets and reps to failure


I used to lift consistently when I was in high school, and for a while after I was out, until I got a hernia while benching. I've decided to start the 5/3/1 power lifting program tomorrow, it will give me something to do, and I always loved lifting.

Yeah, I was getting complacent, spending too much time on the computer. After I finish up installing lineageos and all the apps i need on my new phone I'll cut out all this computer time.

Reporting in, i did a sad fap on day 05, I think the first of the month gonna try to keep it up.



>I didn't take this seriously enough but I hope to last the rest of the week and then the month.

Same, I just want to see how long I can last after what has basically been non-stop fapping for years each day.

I'm on day 5 now and I feel like I want to go out and fuck a woman. Even thought about getting tinder, but that's probably a bad idea, for now at least.

Wish I was more social.

Keep at it faggots. Winter is the most important time to save your nutrients a testosterone, think squirrels and nuts.


>balls hurt

Cold showers and boxer briefs to keep them from clanking around.



100% this. 2 winters ago I was a heavy masturbator and alwaysgot sick 2 days after a fap from a cold day. Keep rolling.

If you read this and think about fapping then you better don't fap, maggot

I just relapsed and I feel absolutely disgusted, depressed and disappointed. I did not even liked that. That was a waste of my time, energy and resources, and there is nothing I can do about my failure but to use it to push myself forward.

I will be revisiting and updating my journal daily to encourage myself and to expose myself to some guilt and social pressure inb4 what social pressure there could be on an anonymous imageboard?

I am doing a complete no porn, no fap run where I will ward off any shitty fantasies with my aggression and rage.

Also I'll try to post light anti-fap material here whenever I can, so this thread will be objectively useful.

Day 60

I guess it's time to update the log.

A few days ago I understood that persistence is the only helpful trait I have.

Mindlessly crashing into my problems over and over again until they disappear and then forcing my way through have been the best method for me to live my life.

That's how my nofap is partly done. Whenever an urge arises, I tell my brain "no," "nope," "I don't want to," "I don't have to do this" or "nah, fuck that shit" until it gets tired and the libido forgets what it had been trying to do.

It doesn't work so good when I am mindful about it. I guess it's just because I am not focused enough if I have at least a single thought to spare.

Day 66

This week has been somewhat intense for me, and, surpisingly, I had very few urges since my last post. My guess is that it's because I had to be busy, and I kept myself even busier than it was required for me.

Day 68

Yesterday urges were intense as hell. I don't exactly know how I managed not to start lurking for porn or relapsing, but my streak is safe for now.



Glad to see you’re still going strong DM. I did 3 weeks /nolurk/ and I’m at day 208 of nofap. My wife and I were sexually active once(HJ) for the first time since I impregnated her last winter. Oddly, this decreased my lust towards women irl, which was harder to avoid than porn for me. I also had two nocturnal ejaculations, one with a I remember and one without. Both times I was more upset about the loss of nutrients and hormones, than the the loss of control. Figuring out how to prevent these is my next goal. I plan on continuing nofap until the spring when my wife weens our baby and we try to conceive again. I’ll check in once a week or so to give bumps of motivation to all you fags.



File: adcdebd724168bb⋯.jpeg (73.86 KB, 400x600, 2:3, a07210cc921bf43b2d84e1444….jpeg)

Apparently I have reached

Day 74

The nocturnal emissions are a rare thing for me now, and the daily lustful thoughts/urges are so half-assed that I have no trouble suppressing them.

The only difficult problem I have is that I am prone to oversleeping. I have already read about this topic and I made some preparations ready to prevent this next time.

Also I have lots of things to do; it is overwhelming, I am barely able to keep up, and knowing that I have to do it not to gain anything good, but only to avoid something terrible, does not helps. The thing is that I am really glad I am on nofap, because, if it were old me, then I'd break down from the pressure and waste my precious time on PMO. I would just clutter my tight schelude with useless shit, the worst type of procrastination.

Now, as I at least partially erased my ability to do that, it got a little bit easier pushing forward just thanks to the very thought about this.


Nice to see you alive, too.

How much it felt easier to nofap while nolurking?

Parkour Edition

Let's bring this board back to life.

Does anyone else have a problem with getting over-active, or physical activity leading to relapse? I used to go to the gym a lot, and I found that for some reason, after I worked out, I always failed hard. There was almost a direct correlation: The longer my workout and the more intense it was the more I thought about nothing but women for hours after I got home.

There's probably some deep biological reason for this, so I can't turn it off, but what can I do to minimize it's effects?

>not using adblock on 8chan

Jim used to run a porn site, you know?



I'm not sure if this is a question, exactly, but I'm going to get it off my chest.

My biggest problem with fapping is that I justify myself. I don't look at any 3D/real-person porn. It's all drawings or writing, and even then, none of it is hardcore or violent. It's mostly just girls with extremely impossible measurements or features. So I don't feel guilty about the characters because none of it is real and none of it portrays violence or a bad situation. I still accomplish things I need to accomplish throughout the day, but a few days ago I relapsed after I decided to be more religious a few days earlier. I know masturbation is a sin, but my mind keeps saying 'no one is being hurt, I'm sure He will understand' when I know that is not the case.

So does anyone have any recommendations on how to turn it around?


How hard is an erection supposed to be? And how long should it last?

I'm a 24yo incel who's been tugging it to porn since 13. If I go half a week without doing it I can stay up for a while even without looking at porn.

But if i do fap after that, my dick will go sloppy in seconds as long as i am not looking at porn when i take my eyes off porn, and it takes a few days to reset.

I feel like shit. I think I have permanently damaged my dick. Not that I am gonna get together with someone anytime soon (ever), but even though I don't have to fear disappointing someone else in bed it feels like a waste to have neutered myself like this.



>but my mind keeps saying 'no one is being hurt, I'm sure He will understand' when I know that is not the case.

YOU are the one being hurt, and you were God’s perfect creation. Your body is temple never forget. Think of it in those terms.


It’s not permanent. You have to stop thinking about what your dick should be/do in order to have a streak long enough to fix it. And by that time the streak will be long enough that you don’t want to use you repaired dick.

NOFAP day 122 atm.

My life has improved IMMENSELY.

I actually have done more for my career over the last 4 months than i have in the last 6+ years.

The worst thing is that i have become more depressed.

Because, you know, i have all this mental fortitude because there is no longer the shame and idk, the "unholyness" of it all to keep me down?

So i am courageos enough to take upon more challenges and follow through with them, feel less sorry for myself etc. etc. i have the strenght to bring down the moon, basically.

The myths about nofap doing nothing are all false, it seriously improved my life to a point where i can see all my failures being gone in less than three years. All the projects i started and never completed, achieving life i want, changing my personality, reaching more people. Its really all at my fingertips.

But holy fuck the depression its actually unbelievable.

I have insanely cool shit happening around me, the same me a year ago wouldve given his left nut for such experiences. I literally have no reason to be depressed, but i am.

I feel like i have lost a loved one, and it hurts constantly. But when i power through this pain it hits me, that all this cool shit is actually happening, my life is actually improving. Its like a shot of heroin(idk ive never done heroin) but you feel shitty all the time, and then there are these clarity moments that outweigh all the bad stuff that has happened for MONTHS.

Anyway, what i am trying to say, even though at times i am unhappier than i have EVER been in my life, the highs of life become GREATER than anything i have ever experienced before. That is why even after 122 days i still keep pushing, because there seriously is something at that end of the tunnel and i am too curious to lose.

Also all porn feels like watchiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Honestly, actual depression sounds better than constant unfeeling apathy. If nothing else, you're drinking deeply from the well of human emotion and even getting high off of it occasionally, which is more than most chronic masturbators can say. I'd say you're doing the right thing for yourself here.



Keep it up, everything gets easier and better. The next goal is 180 and things get much better then. Try improving your diet with more probiotics, less grains and sugar to help mood stability.

>Trying to do nofap since 2016

>Actually succeed for eight and a half months in 2017 so I know I can do it

>Relapse this January and just can't seem to get back on the wagon no matter what I try

>Try not to think about sex, it doesn't work

>Try meditation, it helps my mood but I still keep fapping

>Keep a checklist and use simple rewards like chocolate, doesn't work

>Try exercise and stretching, again it helps but I can't stop whacking it

>Actually get rid of my laptop so I can only use shared computer. Doesn't help, now I just fap when nobody's there

>Practically every change I make works for a few days, then I fuck up again and it no longer helps

All I really have to show for it is that most of my fetishes have faded or weakened considerably.

I don't like looking at porn, I don't like what it does to me. The fact that I managed to quit last year for an extended period gives me hope, but my inability to replicate it makes me despair.

Not much to report. I think I'm finally over the emotional hangover from last week's relapse today but the urges are a little bit stronger, sadly.

DAY 10

Last night I experienced a lesser version of the same phenomena that got me to relapse - just a deluge of sexual thoughts as I was trying to fall asleep. I'd previously resolved to get up and meditate if this happened, but I was just too tired and went to sleep without incident. Next time(if this happens again) I will do it though


File: 0d1a03218355795⋯.jpg (168.45 KB, 960x640, 3:2, midnight-sun-in-lofoten-no….jpg)

DAY 14

A few nights ago I came really close to relapsing but I barely, just barely controlled myself. The problem was my deviating(unavoidably) from meditation, journal keeping, study, and other good habits I've cultivated. Need to make sure it doesn't happen in the future



I remember seeing a ebook about something like this, do you have anymore info on how to maintain a healthier gut brain relationship?



Lurk the /sig/ threads on /pol/. This copypasta is the only pdf I can find. ‘Brainmaker’ by Dr David Perlmutter is good, the Weston A Price foundation website has good articles. Go back on keto and use kimchi or sauerkraut as your 50g of carbs, or drink kiefer and kombucha to add good probiotics back in. The key is starving the bad bacteria/yeast, abstain from bread, grains and sugar(besides fruit) at all costs. Check with someone knowledgeable at your local health food store for advice on particular cleansing products. Lastly breath deep into your belly pushing your diaphragm down, this massages your organs and puts more of your consciousness in your gut.

>This Is Your Brain On Parasites

>"the parasite is going to alter dopamine, GABA, glutamate, and other key neurotransmitters at two hundred different places in the brain," said Evans, "so it's not surprising it's going to be subtly influencing human behavior" -or, if the cysts happen to cluster in certain regions, even contributing to psychiatric disease. "I do take seriously these reports of an increase in suicide and schizophrenia related to the parasite."


>If it were me or someone close I’d recommend a high fiber diet to sweep any clogs and old shit out. Followed by the keto diet since fasting in winter is hard af. And supplemented with activated charcoal and diatomaceous earth to kill any parasites(worms or bacteria) then high doses of fermented foods to replace the friendly casualties. It’s important not to try healing the liver, kidneys, lymph or anything else until the gut is sorted, because a ‘clog’ would just accumulate and exacerbate the problem.

Hey faggots. This is kind of a hybrid of a journal thread and a motivational thread.

I used to frequent a fandom forum where I was carefree and outgoing. I was hilarious - I was witty. Enough people liked me that there was even a circlejerk thread that lasted about half a year where people were quoting hilarious shit I said. IRL, I struggled with depression, but still had a bit of that energy enough to get people to flock around me. My then-GF at the time talked me out of a suicide attempt by reminding me that I was somebody who wasn't afraid to stand up for what he believed in and, by any measure of the word, a success in life. For a while afterwards, I took that to heart, and I reached a golden age in my life for my own well-being. After we broke up, about a year ago, I found myself turning to fapping to cope with the emotional stress.

I really hate to sound melodramatic, but after a couple weeks of self-retrospect, I think that's started to ruin my life.

The compulsion to go out and masturbate has completely ruined my sleep schedule. I'm no longer as humorous or witty as I was. I'm not as outgoing. I've found myself skipping classes at a dojo I'm attending due to falling asleep. I've become absolutely complacent at work and know that if I volunteer for more, I'll burn out. A side art project of mine has been completely postponed because I'm losing 2 hours a day, and I'm not exercising as much anymore.

Over the course of days, I can almost feel my body start to lose mass because of the muscles breaking down due to a lack of real exercise.

If this keeps up, I know that my life is going to continue spiraling downwards, and I'm going to waste my glory years a fat fuck whose only real skill is finding some niche fetish porn. Nope. Not happening. I went through one last round with pretty much every kink that turns me on for a farewell cheer, now my drive is cleared and lotion completely used up.

Here's what I'm going to do about it: Every time I want to fap, I'm going to do some exercise. Which kind, I don't know. Leg day, Cardio, Pushups… variety is good. Only problePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think I'm going to count it. If the release eid anything to my testosterone levels, then I don't want to be prepped for a rise if biologically I'm hitting a decrease. Besides, having the chance to randomly reset my count is a good thing since it makes more out of the rest of my pledge days. If it happens again, I'll just run two counts for blowing a load verses going without looking for porn.


Day 2/148

The Judo situation for now is neutralized since the hottest girl left for the Air Force, and the only one left doesn't shower. If any more come, the newbie will probably get paired up with her (poor newbie).

Shit with getting a new car is going day-by-day, and I have a replacement in the meantime.

Walking Dress Code Violation (WDCV) was blessed by the weather and hasn't flashed since the incident. Weather probably isn't going to cause too much of an issue for now since the season is starting to chill and she might actually start wearing pants, but I have almost half a year pledged, so the spring will probably be an issue with that among other things. Hopefully by then I won't have as many urges.

Right now I'm prepping for Judo, so afterwards I'll do some dumbbell presses and see where I can benchmark myself for this week.



Good job on bouncing back anon, keep up with the physical fitness, you won't regret it.

Thanks for the sentiment. Not sure how far that goes, though…

Day 15/148

>Get wrapped up in insurance shit, redoing budget, and car buying too much to get back to working out or updating thread

>Start slacking off

>Mentally clock out as soon as I get back and just go to sleep until 6:00 the next morning


Pretty much had a wake-up call whenever I realized I gained two pounds since this shit started. God do I feel useless, but I finally had time to start dumbell presses. Upped it to 35lbs, went 25-20-15-10. Too many presses? Maybe, but at least I started to feel strain, and it was enough to make my shoulders and arms pump a bit, so I think I'm going to use this to benchmark where I'm starting from.

Reaching the two week point (more like 'too weak,' amirite?). WDCV hasn't been an issue since the crash, but my mind is starting to deviate back towards other thoughts. It doesn't help that the car I'm borrowing from my parents (pretty much both sides of my family are car enthusiasts, so we always have 1 or 2 old ones spare in case something like this happens) is from the late 80s, so connecting to anything in this thread over my phone is out of the question. Commute is an hour-long, and, not going to lie, on one or two days I've been sitting in the middle of stop-go traffic thinking 'God, wouldn't rubbing my hand on that curvy chick with the highlights be the best thing ever? I can just imagine it…' Yep… next few days are going to be fun…

One the plus side, narrowing down what the replacement car will be seems like its going to be wrapped up soon (currently looking at and thinking about a certain Subaru sedan with some Bluetooth functionality), so once that's over with that pretty much frees up a bunch of time, and takes out one of my biggest sources of stress atm.

With the little time giving up fapping has allotted in the middle of allPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



Well, i hope the car thing works out. Remember what you're fighting for and don't fucking relapse.



I hope you have kept your streak and you’re just too busy to post. After day 21 things get a lot easier.

Neuroscience Speaks: How Using Porn Destroys Your Brain

Neuroscience now knows that willpower is a function of the prefrontal lobes of the brain. Scientific studies have also confirmed that using porn over and over actually reshapes these areas of the brain, literally eroding our willpower and our moral compass.

Neuroscientists call it hypofrontality. Hypofrontality is a state in which there is decreased blood flow to the prefrontal lobes of the brain. Hypofrontality is observed in schizophrenia patients and is also observed in all manner of addictions.

“Compulsiveness is a good descriptor of hypofrontality. Many porn users feel focused on getting to porn and masturbating even when a big part of them is saying, ‘Don’t do this.’ Even when negative consequences seem imminent, impulse control is too weak to battle the cravings.”

The porn-addicted brain has trouble thinking logically. When impulses and desires come from the midbrain, instead of being moderated, the brain feels these desires as compelling needs. The prefrontal region is supposed to be able to weigh consequences and situations and judiciously shut down cravings, but hypofrontality means the addict’s ability to do this is impaired.

The more one masturbates to porn, the more dopamine is released in the brain. Eventually dopamine receptors and signals in the brain fatigue, leaving the viewer wanting more but unable to reach a level of satisfaction. The viewer becomes numb to things once considered pleasurable. “To escape this desensitization, people, and men especially, expand their pornographic tastes to more novel stimuli,” Black writes. This leads, again, to more fatigue.

To bring the prefrontal lobes back into working order, a two-pronged attack is needed: (1) the old neural pathways must be starved, and (2) new neural pathways must be built and fed, increasing dopamine levels in a way that build up the prefrontal cortex.

nature works on good enoughs, if you can receive easy pleasure then theres no need to waste energy developing/upkeeping the rest of the brain. to progress is to suffer, to be curious is to feel dissatisfied



And where are they now?



> To bring the prefrontal lobes back into working order, a two-pronged attack is needed: (1) the old neural pathways must be starved, and (2) new neural pathways must be built and fed, increasing dopamine levels in a way that build up the prefrontal cortex.

So what do we need to get it in working order? From what I can understand from this phrase is to (1) stop feeding into the porn addiction and (2) take action that directly works on brain functioning.

Can someone expand on this, specially point two?

Am I the only one here that read this?

Help anons, seriously considering trying nofap now, I've guess I never went nofap for than 1 week for the entirety of my post pubescent life.

I'm fucking 31 yo and I've wasted way too much time in my life felling in for porn, and then a lot more time wasted around dozed off in its high.

However I do feel like 1 week in, I get way more aggressive, way high anxiety, and could get completely distracted just in the slight hint of ass.

Keep in mind that I have also been getting /fit/ for the last couple of years, so in general I would think to have a good test recovery rate.

so I've guess what I'm asking is, what can I hope for doing this, and what will be the downsides? What do I need to look for?



The things you feel during the first week are probably just "withdrawal". We've become so used to jacking it that our brain just wants us to unload to feel good again. I wouldn't chalk things up to the broad brush of "lol test did it" unless I had it tested. Regardless of whether it did or didn't influence it, I wouldn't expect it to 180 your life or your behavior. It's just a good habit and test of discipline for those of us who are quick to yank our willy.

I'm nearing 1 week myself, but I think the best thing to do is just try and work on the surrounding things in your life, whatever they may be, to distract you from fapping while simultaneously improving other areas of your life.

Sounds obvious, but things don't always have to be complicated. Often it's the simple things that I personally find difficult to do.

Same here, may we thrive.

Yesterday I sperged out, was hung over and sad, broke my streak of 5 days with a porno lunge and sequential 3 faps. Emptied my balls out, then felt even more depressed and empty inside than before.

Girlfriend let me a week ago, officially reached neet status, so yeah I have to work it out. I have to focus on my motivation, tomorrow will go back job hunting, maintain healthy nutrition and exercises, and avoid fapping throughout the week.

Also started meditation at night, to find some relief of the extreme anxiety and over thinking. Wish me luck bro, I will be reporting in.
