Day 56.

Overall I think it's pretty great that I have gone 56 days without looking porn, despite never being addicted or anything. I don't think I'll ever watch porn again unless it's with a girl or whatever. I don't really agree with people saying it's on my mind everyday. It isn't on my mind at all. Maybe I just have a low libido for a 22 year old guy ? Idk

I've had 2 wet dreams since I started this, which isn't ideal at all, so I need to really work on that happening less/never.

Aight so here’s what happened. Got a toothache yesterday. Found myself up at 1,2,3 in the morning... being tormented by this tooth. Finally said fuck it and fired up some porn just to distract myself. Keep in mind, my streak of not beating off was going on 19 days at that point but I also had a 10 day streak of not watching any porn. So I ended up watching porn for hours. And I’m not gon hold you– it ended up being some kind of experiment because as long as I was watching porn the tooth pain was minimal. Granted, I understand that that’s because most of the time my attention was almost fully consumed by the porn. But even when I’d snap out of it and focus on my tooth... the pain was still dull by comparison so long as my eyes remained on the porn. It was just a really eye-opening example of the whole ‘mind over matter’ thing. Whenever I’d stop watching the porn, the pain would come back full-on within a minute or so.

So anyway, I watched mad porn for mad long, ended up edging a bit, too.., but didn’t bust a nut. Really wanted to at times but the thought of that horrible feeling I’d get as soon as it was over COMBINED with still having to deal with the toothache made me realize it wasn’t worth it.

In a nutshell, this was a super informative experience on several levels. For one, porn definitely feels like a drug to me. For two, not breaking my streak really seems to have become a strong motivator for me. For three, even though porn’s effect on me is drug-like, I was still often able to see beyond the euphoria and realize a) I don’t want it in my life and b) I can break the addiction.

When I started this, my emphasis was really just on not beating off. But after not watching porn also became a part of it I realized how crucial that aspect was. So even though I didn’t bang one out last night I’m just gonna start the count over and go for 90 Days Hard Mode. No beating off, no edging, no porn. All in all, I think last night’s experience made me both more aware and more confident. Life sends lessons in the strangest ways 🙌🏾

  basically this, I think it helped me to fap less. I didn’t notice any crazy benefits other than you gaining more self discipline. I say do it for a month and if you fap again try to limit it to 3 times a week max.

This whole Reddit NoFap thing is bullshit & toxic. For them it’s a extra justification and motivation for what they're going through, wether it's real or not is not nearly as important as them being able to say they finally have control over their urges.

Fapping only starts to become a serious problem when you stop doing shit with friends or staying up all  night just to fap. If you don’t get a woman it’s not because you are fapping it’s because you have low self confidence and NoFap is not the solution for this.
I think noporn is effective, because when I don't watch it, I find myself more sexually attuned to girls around me. BUT, I definitely agree that nofap is not the answer to getting girls to like you more, lol. in fact, it can add extra pressure and for you to feel like failing in something, when in fact, it's completely natural to fap every now and then at least.
