    If you are new to NoFap or already have a good streak going on remind yourself every day to never edge or even peek for one second on one of those damn porn sites. Always go HARDCORE in your life and that's a case for NoFap as well.

    Also if you built some streak for yourself and start edging but not relapsing, cut that streak right away and star over, because edging is relapsing you like it or not. Avoid that shit ! There are no benefits from edging, its just making you delusional that you are going strong on your streak but in fact you are standing in a place. That's why a lot of people keep asking why I don't see any benefits from this. Well its because you don't do it properly.

    Well said. Nowhere do you read that edging gets a free pass during reboot. In my AP group the question keeps coming up. Sadly, some people need 'reminding' of what they already suspect, even though this info is widely available. But, part of our breakthrough is from being held accountable, and your post helps us all be accountable.

    What is NoFap's general definition of edging? Masturbation edging, or simply peeking at porn but not masturbating? Or both? See it discussed a lot, but not clarified.

    Edging is purposely seeking a trigger for the purpose of arousal. This can even begin as an accident but develop into a prolonged intentional decision. For example, you could accidentally stumble upon a picture of a sexually attractive female online. If you choose to remain staring at the picture because you feel yourself getting excited then that is edging. If you click away and force yourself not to dwell on those thoughts then you have successfully avoided edging.

    I edged today and relapsed after over 70 days. I am such a looser. I disappointed God and myself. :(

    Agree. Don’t do it. I am living a good life without it. Your mind changes.

    How to prevent edging forever. Doing pushups and stuff like that maybe?
     
  10. God loves you, anyway. He knows you better than you know yourself. He understands exactly what you’re going through. He understands the struggle involved. He’s patient.

    Edging messes your mind up and almost always leads to orgasm.

  12. I identified different meanings used by different groups of people. Interestingly, each group seems to ignore that there are several meanings.

    1. Edging: masturbation edging where you try to grt as close as possible to an orgasm, without reaching an orgasm, for as long as you can to keep the dopamine rushing to your brain as long as you can.

    (This is what I consider to be the true meaning of edging.)

    2. Edging: getting dangerously close to peeking on P sites or P-subs.

    3. Edging: peeking on P sites or P subs for a few seconds.

    This site provides The Glossary, which gives NoFap's point of view for members. Here's what they say:
    Edging: Traditionally, this described masturbating to the brink of orgasm and stopping right before “going over the edge.” This could be repeated over and over, usually in conjunction with pornography. Some rebooters have tried this in a misguided attempt to rationalize pornography usage (“well, it doesn’t count if I didn’t orgasm!”). Now it is used more generally to describe masturbation without orgasm. If you are adhering to NoFap’s Normal or Hard Mode rebooting programs, edging is usually considered a reset.

    By having sex with real people. And if you’re not doing that, stay focused on self betterment. Just do it.

    Any state of prolonged intentional arousal without release is effectively “edging”. You are activating the same dopamine receptors in the brain as if you are masturbating and thus the same effect is achieved. Edging can be just as bad as fully masturbating and orgasming to porn. It is next to impossible to rewire the brain while edging.

    Thank you, it's just really frustrating to trow out over 70 days in a couple of minutes. But this time I won't do it anymore, no way.

    I won’t be doing it. I know the benefits. I’m doing nofap, cold showers and intermittent fasting. When I step in that shower I tell myself “you’re either serious or not. Cop it on the chin and move on.” Don’t be like the fat cucks you see walking around every day. Be a wolf. Be the best version of yourself.
