    I'm actually self-employed. I just rent space to do my work, which is training baseball and softball players. Because of NoFap/Semen Retention, I'm more focused on any task I take on, especially my work but I tend to experience a new, heightened level of enjoyment, though.

    Sure. I started here with the intent of kicking the porn habit. I started watching every YouTube video I could on NoFap (No PMO). That lead to the discovery of the Semen Retention practice.

    Semen Retention is more about becoming a better man. The practice of withholding semen, I've found, is one of the most empowering for a man because it's the ultimate test self-control. All of the benefits I've listed are a direct result of my semen retention.

    I listened to the Huberman podcast you linked and it was excellent. Better than the School of Greatness one. Better than The Molecule of Mpre (so far for me). Great explanation. I am guilty of layering on dopamine hits, so I tried to clean the house without listening to a podcast, work without checking the internet or eating, etc. It does help calm me down and brings my mood up. The point that for every dopamine up, there is a corresponding and greater down is very motivating. I was overdoing it on the chocolate!

    Ive got a week alone home with the kids which would have been bad news earlier this year. Too much free time and stuck at home after they go to sleep. But I’m feeling good so far. I’ll be proud to pass this test come Friday.

    checking in , 40 Days no wet dreams so far, I feel it's kinda weird but I think it's also cool to have all that semen retention, my voice got deeper like way deeper :D, and my posture got better, I realized I lately eat more than I used to do before, and urges to watch P are lighter than before , but I know I'm not in the clear yet. honestly ,I have no confidence facing the world without NoFap.

    Had perhaps my strongest urge of all time yesterday, possibly because I would have pmo’d to settle it long before it became so strong in the past. Instead I just sat there trying to let it wash over me. It was a little out of body. It happened in a specific case where I’ve mo’d in the past so I think it was hardwired in there and caught me out of surprise.

    listened to something interesting about the mind. Normally you think of “use it or lose it” as a call to keep your mind active but it also works in the reverse. If you have something you don’t want in your mind, if you reduce repetition, it will eventually atrophy. That’s what we’re looking for. Streak or no streak, less will atrophy the mind connections.

    today is filled with joy and optimism for better tomorrow. I'm shocked by the amount people who really don't know that P can be addicted, I guess i can't talk to anybody about my addiction after all. I'm really thankful to have this group which shares the same values and goals regarding P ADDICTION.

    I have a friend that I talk to about all sorts of weird stuff with like fasting, diets, weird workouts, etc. I texted him once about trying this and he never replied with anything:) So I just left it at that. Mentioned it to my wife once and she just kind of froze and didn't say much. It's definitely not something that will appeal to the average person or even the person that is generally open to trying new things. One benefit of the internet is finding a group of like minded people.

    Day 177. I'm starting to have a LOT of fun interacting with women now. I use to be so "in my head" when engaging before NoFap/Semen Retention. Now, I don't even think. I just say whatever comes up without a care as to whether they'll like it or not. I'm not out trying to hit on women. I'm just talking, engaging in playful banter, etc.

    Even when it comes to texting or sending pm's, women are responding to whatever I say almost instantly with a reply. Before, I use to try to think of the perfect opener or a really nice line or something. Nope...not anymore. I've also found women seeming to make it a point to just say "hello". I use to go places and never even talk to a soul. Now WOMEN are coming up to me. It's crazy! There actually may be some truth to the idea that men who retain their seed sending off different vibes to women!
