    OK I know this is a small streak but I thought it would be interesting to note what happens after two weeks--I'll keep it short.

    • I have more time. I have more time and that means my productivity is higher. I've already had several good things happen in my career life and it doesn't seem to be a coincidence.

    • I have had to control so many urges to use porn. I see my new laptop with it's big screen and think there is no way I am not going to use it, but I have sustained.

    • I remember back to my previous streak of 78 days, and I want to beat it. That is a major source of motivation.

    • I am a little disgusted with social media, especially instagram-- at least a big portion of it. It really just seems like digital foreplay to go and use porn. I really think we live in a porn society.

    • When I want to Fap a lot of times I will just go a and make a cup of tea and it is a meditative process.

    • I don't really notice anything specific about my testosterone. I heard it goes up 45% or something like that when you haven't napped for 10 days or whatever. I feel a slight bit more ambitious.

    • Just waking up an realizing I haven't relapsed in a bit and I am working on it makes me feel really good.

    • I care more about relationships and have more time for them

    • I feel less controlled by my fantasy of women. I'm just focused on my life right now. I don't need the approval of a woman to feel validated.

    Well I'll end it there. I wish you luck. Use the NoFap ap it really helps. I look forward to checking in about two weeks. It's gonna be a roller coaster but hopefully will be good.

    * it says 13 but trust me it has been 14

    Yeah, instagram can be a "trigger" for a lot of people.

    Free tips for Success:

    1. You literally don't have to watch porn ever again. (self.NoFap)

    2. When PMO is not even an option (self.NoFap)

    3. Google: "The pain of self-discipline [4] is far less than the pain of regret [8]" ..... Find an image you like......... and save it onto your computer or phone. (Ex: Go outside and get some fresh air. Temptations usually last only 10-20 minutes.)

    4. Daily or Weekly Rewards -- treats or dessert (for good behavior); or buy something related to a hobby you really enjoy; listen to your favorite songs, etc.

    5. Some guy on line had this great advice: " Never touch your dick……[or female parts for women]."
    Tip……. when showering use a wash cloth

    6. Humor ....... Google: "Glad you could join me Mr. Bond". Funny, somewhat possessed toddler............... Anyone know the Villain the toddler is supposed to represent?

    7. Click on the NoFap "Emergency" button and find an image you like. Keep the image in an open window on your computer or phone (positive influence on your mind….. and behavior): http://i.imgur.com/bbWSvJx.jpg

    BONUS I -- Fasting can help you have more self control; and has many health benefits. You can skip meals; or entire days -- your choice. If you skip breakfast, you can use GREEN TEA (WITH CAFFEINE) as a low cost, mild, healthy stimulant that gives you energy.

    BONUS II -- Go to NoFap.com…………….. Encourage others or give them Advice [gets the focus off of ourselves and on onto others]. Works Very Good!

    BONUS III -- This may be the most important: Are You Willing to Do Whatever It Takes? (Get up off your Heinekin [butt] and go outside; go to a market or gas station at 3 am [anonymous supervision] and buy a snack or soda; go for a walk around the block at 5am. As soon as you make the (AYWTDWIT?) commitment -- there is an extremely High Success Rate.

    Good luck
