    That's interesting. It makes sense to me, although some other people argue it's all about genetics. I have also read about the androgen receptors upregulating after quitting PMO, which as far as I can understand, is as important as having high testosterone.
    I have been training consistently for a couple of years and whenever I try to increase my caloric intake I get fat. I am going to try that again and maybe it will be different, e.g. I will gain muscle instead, because I am on day 81 of nofap. Will see.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks bro,
    Frankly right now I am strict only on watching porn and nasty content.
    To be honest not that strict on Fap and edging but without porn ( fantasies) and also light on orgasm.
    But say I am without porn for 11 days now
    Fapping with o - 5 days
    Edging - daily.

    What do you think is it a right approach?

    Because I do thing that i i resolved full no PMO for 1 month I personally believe that i will most likely fail.

    I am thing on moving gradually
    No porn strict then larger gap for orgasm then fantasy fap.

    I would like to here your opinion on this.
    ( my short history joined Nofap last month.
    26 days with no porn then release for 10 days and now again started)

    Hmmm...
    It's seems that i am adopting different path.
    Kindly shade some light on this approach that I am right now adopting.

    Brief history- joined Nofap last month.
    26 days were w/o porn ( but fapping and orgasms were there) then relapse for 10 days and now again started.

    Today's I am on 11 day without porn
    5 days w/o O
    But fatasise and edging is on.

    Frankly
    I think that if I will go directly on No PMO for say 30 days i would fail most probably.

    My present approach is gradual.
    First strict No porn then long streches in orgasm and gradually increase no fapping / edging streches.

    Is it right approach????????

    What are the drawbacka in this???

    If you could share, shade some light it would be a great help

    I've never had any ankle pain when I was fapping alot but i did have lower back pain. Everybody's journey isn't the same so it could be a case to case thing that some people experience but for me I've never had any pain in my ankles.

    Good question! For the first 5 months I didn't orgasm at all. I recall having one wet dream after that. I also did have sex probably around day 180. Those are the only two times I released. I can say from what I've felt that abstaining from watching porn does make you hyper sensitive. Hyper sensitive emotionally and with your senses. After the first two weeks I found myself being really emotional in situations I usually wouldn't be emotional in. While PMOing I could barely shed tears when someone passed away but now I can cry my eyes out at anytime. This was especially true for anger. That's why working out was huge for me because it was a healthy outlet for my anger. It was like I had been numb for so long then after I stopped PMOing all my emotions came back to me at once. I think its a combination of abstaining from both watching porn and constant fapping that brings all the emotion back. We know that porn messes up our dopamine circuits. After quiting that , we become naturally more excited and appreciative of the things happening around us because we're not being exposed to such high stimuli all the time now. As for the hormones, retaining your semen long enough for it to be reabsorbed into your body does have effects on hormones along with abstaining from fapping. Zinc, the nutrient responsible for producing testosterone , is released in large amounts everytime we cum. If we're cumming so frequently then that nutrient doesn't have time to do its job and is continuously depleted before our body can even utilize it. Supposedly, it takes the body over a month to fully replinish ONE large ejaculation through food and sleep. So all of that equals low energy vibrations and low levels of that hormone that makes us men, testosterone. I think I made my answer way too long lol. But I hope it answered your questions!

    Whats up man? Your approach is very different. Your results will be much slower and take alot longer to come. The fact you gave up porn is huge but still fantasizing and edging is the wrong way to go. You're still keeping your dopamine receptors heightened for long periods of time that are unnatural. If you're constantly fantasizing and edging, its like you're not on no PMO/ nofap at all. Remember that sexual stimuli and orgasm is the strongest pleasure humans can experience besides certain drugs. You're reinforcing those damaging pathways in your brain. If I were you I would implement the tips I outlined earlier. Doing things like taking away your triggers and changing your environment will make going 30 days easy. PREPARE before temptation punches you in the face , so when it does, you can weave and counter attack. But again don't count the days, that'll make it a streak. Change your attitude and make it a life style. Say you'll only orgasm with girls and REALLY believe in that! Whether you believe you can or can't do it, you're right. It's all mental. So stop fantasizing and stop edging completely. And if you do orgasm, I'd only do it with girls so you are reinforcing healthy pathways in your brain and getting rid of the porn/ artificial pathway. Hope that helps!

    Hey @FappieChan, thanks for your reply! Yeah your answer makes sense to me. How did you feel after each release? Did you notice it in any way and if so, how and how long did it took to get back to 'normal'?

    Interesting. Do you know any more to it, maybe a source?

    Edit: And to @[email protected] : I think your way might be not perfect. I thought similar to you, as long as I would abstain from porn it would be good. But then I realised that Masturbation/Edging is somehow not the best either. I am not someone who would advice you to go fully without it, but simply try to reduce it. Maybe like every other day. Or maybe every week once.
    Of course it is your choice, but it will not hurt to try ;)

    That's very true about the androgen receptors, that is what testosterone binds to in order to aid in muscle building. While I was PMOing if I upped my calories , I'd get fat too! But while PMOing my strength kept yo-yoing too so my muscles couldn't constantly be exposed to more stress and tension which had something to do with it. I agree too that genetics is important but I believe any body can grow with the right training methods. Everybody in my family has small calves except for a very few. I worked the mess out of my them for years but they wouldn't grow. In the last 8 months I learned it was perfect technique , varying rep ranges , and a large amount of total volume per week that mattered most for calves. Now I have bowling balls for calves that I'm very proud of lol good luck!

    I didn't feel any different after waking up from the wet dream and after sex I might've been a little tired for maybe 5-10 minutes but I was fine after that. The sperm production time frame was from a chapter we studied in my college course. They also talked about how much semen is equal to a certain amount of blood in our body too. If I can find the book I'll put a picture of the chapter in this thread so everybody can take a look.
     
  11. Great post! Well done and thanks for sharing :)

    Thanks man! Yeah would be cool, I was just thinking that if it was 'just' something that could be found on this forum it would be good to question it a bit haha ;D.

    Mmmh so you say it that you didn't felt those '30 days rebuilding time'. Wouldn't that mean, at least what can be said from your experience, that semen retention is not the reason for your success? Because if you would believe in semen retention you should have felt 'bad' after your wet dream and after sex aswell (as you lost semen). What do you think of that?

    Good point! That thought occured to me afew years ago during a long abstinence but I proved it to be wrong on several different occasions . I have done streaks of nofap where I stopped porn and fapping completely, but from day 1 I was having alot of sex and not giving my body anytime to build up a storage of semen. I did not feel nearly as great as I do now. No I definitely believe semen retention is a huge reason for my success. My first release was after 5 months of building up semen, that semen being reabsorbed into the blood and my body being able to utilize the nutrients without any release. Thats where all of these reports of people skin and hair looking better because your body has time to actually use nutrients.I did release once during sleep after 5 months but its not as if that one ejaculation drained me of all my semen or of so much semen that I was back to the point where I was in February. Its fapping 3-4x a week sometimes even 4x a day and depleting so much semen without my body ever building up a supply of it vs retaining it for 5 months, having one wet dream then having sex about a month after that.

    Thanks ma'am

    I was thinking of moderate path.
    But one the the problem with this is it automatically reinforce the urg for more gratification.

    I am making sence from your startegy.

    Starting with small target.
    NoFap No PMO for 7 days till 4oct..( although I am defering from one suggestion from u ie not counting days...

    But I need target to motivate. Will stop counting afterwords. :)
    Thanks you bro

    There's this book called Hackbook easy peasy (Allen Carr's). I suggest you read it. It might help you overcome this addiction.

    If it was just one simple method, there wouldn't be a need to write a whole book. The book was designed from the start to make you realize that PMO is not valuable and brainwash you to remove the addiction without much effort. You should take your time to read it properly. Miss one or two chapters, you might not get the point.
