When you know that stop looking at porn, even softcore nudes, is necessary to stop fapping addiciton, but it feels like self-cuckoldry to deny yourself the pleasure of seeing sexy women naked, which can only happen through that medium.

When you know that the key to growing out of fapping addiction is to become passionate and excited about something and channel your energy into it, but the only thing which made you jump out of bed eagerly is to look at porn and fap.

Only when you re addicted, that will change.

It can took months or years depending on how addicted you are.

According to Tao, a man in his 20s should ejaculate only once in 4 days. A man in his 30s once in 8 days, and so on.

Cravings makes reality look bad while they promises you an escape out of that! They key to seing through this is to deep down realize that facing reality for what it is, is always more worth than fulfilling addictions. Love, beauty and fulfillment is on the other side of suffering (cravings), and its always more worth than a perpetual cycle of ‚ÄĚrelief‚ÄĚ.

I need to fulfill my needs rather than fulfilling my wants. What I want is displayed as a temporary craving that goes away if faced. What I need is indentified by the constant symptoms of suffering that comes as a biproduct of me not fulfilling my needs. Cravings will never get me what I need! Getting rid of cravings is what I need.

You need a reason to prioritize doing nothing rather than giving into cravings. Cravings will strip you away of all your motivations, of all pleasure, of all beauty, security and reason. When you have nothing besides the craving, you must know why you would rather do nothing than give into the craving. The reason is that if you resist the cravings, the addiction will eventually fade away, and release all it took away from you, so that the moment can become beautiful, valuable and full of love and freedom. 

Resisting the craving and killing the addiction will reward you with the things that the craving promised you in the first place (counter intuitive)! This applies to all kinds of cravings, even cravings related to exploring stuff you have never experienced before! Cravings are cravings, and beyond all of them lies your truest desires. There is a fine line between what you need to do rather than what you want to do.

All my surface motivations will never hold in the long run if I cant fundamentally choose to face reality rather than giving into addictions. Of course, surface motivations are handy for me not to face the whole addiction all at once (e.g doing something elise or only facing a certain kind of craving), and to give me a smoother journey to the end, but if I cant grasp the underlying issue, I can never fully let go of an addiction.

I still recommend masturbating once per every few weeks because you will ejaculate onto your underwear during your sleep if you don't do it for months. I don't want to wet my underwear.

By masturbating once per every few weeks, you get most of the benefits of NoFap and you don't wet your underwear. It's a nice tradeoff.

@youngshinzen maybe eating whole lemons. I feel great after eating one and normally I'm depressed.

@Psyche_92 Does Caffein actually decrease dopamine? :(((

Yes. Cafe√Įne is obviously a stimulant. If you drink coffee, tea or eat some chocolate, it elevates your mood for a reason :).
