    Quick thought before I go to bed, will see if anyone responds.

    What does everyone think about cold showers? Do you use them for nofap (and do they work?), or even if you weren’t doing nofap, would you still use them because they make you feel good and energized?

    Personally, I found that 2 cold showers a day is very effective for nofap. I start my morning off with a good cold shower, and then after I get home from work, I blast and wash myself with a cold shower.

    Last week, I was 7 days into nofap, and I thought: “tonight, I don’t feel like taking a cold shower, I’ll just skip it.” So I did skip it. And is it coincidence that I ended up relapsing that night? Maybe, maybe not.

    But I believe in cold showers. What does everyone else think?

    I did cold showers for the 90 days of my reboot. They were necessary at that time but now that im past 90 days I can do without them. Mainly because they would take a lot of will power and now I can apply it to other tasks

    If nothing else, cold showers make you feel accomplished, powerful, and alive. They put you in a state where you're better able to deny your urges because that's exactly what you're doing when you're having a cold shower. You're choosing to act from your higher self when you consciously choose to take a cold shower rather than giving in to your lower self and seeking the comfort of a hot shower. It creates decision momentum in that you're better able to make better decisions. It also helps build your willpower muscle over time because again, you're doing something you don't want to do. Keep doing it and it'll be a constant workout for your willpower that you'll be able to increasingly apply to the rest of your life.
  5. I know they are good for circulation. Like the same principal applies in sub zero weather when you go without gloves for awhile and then put them on. At the very least I’ve experienced feeling energized by them and it definitely curbs that hot thickness from arousal. Pretty sure you save money too!
