NoFap - Why you should quit porn & masturbation !

1,355 posts in this topic

The irony is, engaging in mental masturbation by reading and writing about the benefits of no-fap while doing no-fap increases the likelihood of relapsing back to P&M, since I'm still fixating on the habit. If you already experienced what it's like to quit wanking for 2 weeks, 2 months, or longer, you don't need to confirm what you already know. Come back to share your experiences one you've broken another personal record. My record is 67 days, so if I don't fap from now until December maybe I'll post a 100 day report, and other that that just some short personal journal entries to document my progress without obsessing over it. Earlier this month I have literally went and fapped the moment after writing for 30 minutes about how no-fap is so great. Really counter-intuitive, the monkey mind will do anything to get me to sacrifice my seed. Succeed at no-fap by not thnking about no-fap. It's like the game.

This thread is teal deer and I fapped a few days ago anyway. What I do find useful though is, once it's been 30 days or so, to watch some videos to remind myself why I want to keep going longer. By then I will have had enough no-fap time invested that thinking about fapping in the context of not fapping won't tempt me to just throw it away, but if I start doing no-fap research only a few days in I'll likely feel like just fapping again.

It's like when someone tells you "don't think of a pink elephant." To stop thinking about fapping means also stop thinking about not fapping.

It's not just you, something really shifts during the third week where your libido kicks into hyperdrive trying to get you to seek an outlet for sexual energy. But if you stick with it, there is an amazing feeling where brain fog you didn't even realize you were carrying before seems to dissipate right before you, the world literally looks brighter, and you feel infinitely creative, open to the limitless possibilities of life. Long term semen retention changes every aspect of your personality. Even if you have a nocturnal emission, you can retain this state because it's more of a gentle effortless release of excess when your cup runneth over, not this intense burst and loss of subtle body energy that happens when you make yourself ejaculate from sex and masturbating.

It's amusing to observe my subconscious ego trying so hard to get me laid just so it can have some sexual release. I act like such a different person when around people now that it is startling sometimes. Conversations flow much more naturally and particularly when I'm around women my senses and reaction time feels razor sharp. For the time being I enjoy feeling like this new self that I dont want to trade it in for a brief flash of pleasure followed by weeks of building the momentum back.

Don't worry. Soon enough your brain will find a way to mask all the good feelings of being on NoFap and make you believe it's not that important to do it after all.

Hey this came true for me, thanks man! experienced a hard reset recently. Triggered by a girl who showed me interest only to act cold on me later. I think I don't like how pussy crazy I get towards the 2-3 week mark I can't trust myself to make sound decisions especially around women.

7 day without fap, no need I even watched porn before, not even a bonner. ( I violent myself, like, really man ? ( I do not wanted to fap, just watch evil in the eyes ) is that what you want, fuck you, I'll not fap. ( kind of )

Sleep is easy because I wait until I can't do anything but sleep ( I m not working currently )

 it's was mostly drug that appeal my animal side for hand work.

It was a sort of poison habit that I had when I was high. But after a long reflection, I don't want to get a life jerking off 1h per day, 400 hours per year. and this pleasure is only a delusion, fapping on alienated girls mostly hooked on drug, that's a bit sad if you really think about it. And you're fapping on this, seriously.

I think they shouldn't be a total no fap though, maybe 1/per month if you can discipline.

Hope this will give me energy to get out and met girl again. I think it's probably placebo on the physical side, but it should work a lot on the mind, and so impact the body for "real".


1 month without ritalin aswell ( I did use this shit for a year with some break ), not really hard to stop it ( 2 day of feeling shitty, weed helped ), as I reflect that it makes me artisticly stupid. ( even if motivated to tweak endlessly my project )

and 2 days without weed. ( i smoked 1g per day for 3 years ), no sugar. I only used coffee to fight "tiredness" but I don't like the taste.

the effect is just right for "tiredness induced by quitting dopamine induction"

Probably I'll not be allowed to stop weed on the long run ( currently thinking about using it like a psychedelic though, not like a habit )

( but will discipline me very very hard ) and reflect a bit more the idea;

I only drink 2 thea and smoked 4 tiny cigs those last 2 days ( because head crap, I don't like the taste and utility of smoking cigs ) ( there is none "real" for me in cigs ) it's only the habit of putting smoke into my lung.. this is very stupid habit. I'll not condemn everything.

I used a random online game for 2 days ( forget addiction ) would have been better meditating. But I wasn't in the mood with my recent "breakdown ptsd" ( only 1 day, but a really hard day on my mind ) probably played on me recently quitting everything I abuse.

it worked, but the game almost sucked me, discipline and thinking about my futur helped me just unintall the shit before I remplace addiction for another ( I uninstalled it, and reflect how shitty it was to loose my time on it )

worked on drawing a girl that I find beautiful on internet / writting and reading books on philosophy today.

Hope to be free of most of substance addiction, I did sport this day aswell.

Will focus on becoming a better artist and read more instead.. motivation is currently dead. didn't do any music since quitting ( weed )

Maybe LSD just take over my mind. ( I did use 300mcg on 6 days without never using psychedelic before ) alone in my room. ( it was great )

 

 ( I do not meditate really, I use to listen tons of ambiant electronic music with eyes close though and try to focus only on the music ( that induce thought and idea ) .

I had a crisis after eating hashish. ( do not ask me why I did this ) I feeled like crap in my mind, and I had the feeling that I should end my life right now ( I didn't and started shy away from those thought ) ( the hash was probably half poisoned as usual ) and that everything is completely bullshit.

Now it start to feel better, I start forget about my precious past identity and try to work on taking a real ownership on me and build a new one that is better shaped to my natural instinct.

 

ok I mostly talked about all my addiction, but nofap benefit is something I m really curious

 ( as youtube show me a tons of video about nofap ) this is even why I've seen this topic right now.

 

how are you doing besides "placebo" how is your current lifestyle besides quitting porn guys ?

@Monkey-man Good feelings is where the journey starts. Kundalini will help open any blocked chakras especially the heart. Once the navel, heart, and crown are cleared I can get about 6 hours of persistent nondual awareness. It’s beautiful but it doesn’t happen everyday. 

If you have an active kundalini you will get spontaneous kriyas. This lady knows what’s up. It can sometimes look like this for me. And no it doesn’t hurt, it feels great. It’s like the devil (I) is leaving the body. The more you let go and let it do its thing the better. 

Mute the sound

Here is a video of my energetic releases. This was recorded after a huge purge so it doesn’t look as intense. I’m kinda hesitant on filming the real deal haha. But this lady in the video above is what a full purge or opening of chakras can look like for some people. 

 

comments under first video is nuts

I think I had a lucid wet dream where I resisted the first attempt to ejaculate, but not the second scenario.
