    I tought if u can handle sexual urges, other urges are easier to deal with. Is that NO answer from your own experience?

    Its funny you mention PMO and sugar, because I went off of both for 21 days. And it is one of the greatest things ever. I have never been so productive in my school work ever, and I've never had so much drive and mental clarity ever. Going through the actual process though, I found that it was harder to stay away from sugar than PMOing. It was almost like keeping away from sugar and wrestling with that helped me forget about PMOing almost altogether. After the 21 days, I decided to eat sugar, but I've continued to stay away from PMO. I would totally recommend doing a sugar fast as it will benefit you either way

    Quitting sugar may have better mental benefits then quitting PMO (for some)

    Yes it has.

    I lost over 60 pounds while on a long streak in 2017.

    After that I quit and gained back about 30 of that but I am back on it and immediately starting losing weight and lost over 10 pounds so far.

    I may be an all or nothing person but it is night and day when I'm on a streak and trying to discipline myself and when I'm not. I start not caring about myself if I relapse or don't try to resist my urges.

    Yes I've quit smoking, alcohol, weed, porn all at once. I was a severe addict too but quit everything all in one blow. You just need will power and a strong resolve.

    In my opinion, if you kick one addiction, you win autocontrol, and it can help to kick another.
    But sometimes we think we’re winning, but we’re actually moving it to another, even if it was already there.

    When I started semen retention, your body will look for something else to substituted. Sugar gives you a rush but then you crash if you don't have more. Sugar is bad for your body. Look for something else that is healthy that will provide nutrients to your body and replenish your cells. Soon you might start having wet dreams and you will lose old sperm. So if you do ejaculate old semen while sleeping at least you have a fresh supply.
