BUT YET NOFAP CAN ACTUALLY INCREASE TESTOSTERONE BY 400% if done for a week or more. 

Well i'm not a man. I assumed that testosterone levels decline. 

But I'm digging deeper into this 

 

It seems you're exaggerating this and there's literally no effect on testosterone as given in this article. Read it fully.

Masturbation itself does not increase testosterone then why will the lack of it increase this hormone. That wouldn't make sense. 

You're giving misinformation.

Ejaculation releases prolactin, which reduces the production of testosterone.

Masturbation only slightly reduces testosterone otherwise negligible effects. 

It seems holding off masturbating increases testosterone on the 6th day but only slightly. 

This article discusses this in detail.

Well, either way, I get really hyper and cranky at the 5 day mark.

Abstinence does not increase testosterone

What time is testosterone peaking? 

What time of day is testosterone the highest?

testosterone levels fluctuate, peaking around 8 a.m. and diminishing throughout the day. Levels tend to be lowest around 8 in the evening, then climb during the night.

That's why men experience something called morning wood

There's a very popular study showing that testosterone spikes at day 7, but after that it returns to normal even if you abstain more. So, by that logic, if you wanna maximize testosterone, you should do it every 7 days.

I apologize for judging the men on this thread. At first I wrongly assumed that all the men here were trying to show their hate for women by hating masturbating. 

It seems holding off masturbating is slightly beneficial (not fully though) to men in terms of overall regulation of testosterone. 

Of course you shouldn't go overboard with either masturbation or holding off. 

Sorry for judging. 

Carry on.

Week 4

giphy.gif

My brain is sad. I miss dopamine land. 

I'll keep going until Friday, because I have a presentation to give on that day, and I'll need all the confidence and mental clarity I can get. 

On the weekend, I will be tempted to return to dopamine land, but my intention is to keep going indefinitely.

Great write-up: https://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/comments/z6jqmu/ready_to_quit_permanently/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

"In the narrative sense, you've pissed the universe off. You've made the wrong sacrifices. In life, we are given an allotted amount of time and attention (roughly 80 years worth) and in return, you're supposed to do what men were innately designed/evolved to do: work (sacrifice time and energy) to make things better, create value, and rest by enjoying the fruits of your labor. Humanity, through natural selection, has this inherent desire and you, along with your father, his father, and his father, and so forth were born with it. Instead, because of this sense of the self/ego, humans act selfishly and "choose" to use others and themselves as tools to get what this ego wants. You've watched yourself countless times choose to spend your precious time and attention on things that don't ultimately matter like porn, TikTok, Instagram, junk food, video games, etc. You've been tricked into thinking these things will satisfy you. Deep down inside, you hate yourself for wasting your potential, as you should. The universe looks down on you because you can be so much more than you currently are."

Speaking of mental clarity, I knocked my lamp over by backing into it with my ass, and it hit my keyboard and broke a key. Then I had to surgically transplant one of those plastic brackets underneath from another key that I don't use ;_;

Am I intepreting you correctly, are you going to attempt a 1-year no fap? If you can pull that off you might have stumbled upon an entirely new path to enlightenment.

Ironically I nutted in this November more than any other month. Jeez I was so depressed and horny. It was like My teen years all over again  :P
