    Hello everyone I am new here and am sick of porn and masturbation controlling me. So now it is time to do something about it. I will be starting with 2 weeks of no masturbation and I assume this is going to be extremely difficult, as I have masturbated for years and never did a reboot before. I am going to need all of your help to get through this! I think we can do it who's with me!

    This works much better when there is something going on in your life, it doesnt have to be big changes but just enough that you dont need to get your "reward" from PMO anymore.
    This way you stop thinking about it or obsessing if you relapsed after a month or so.
    Even if you do, think as alcohol ,its not a problem if you drink it once or twice a month but you are an alcoholic if you need to drink it every day.
    I wrote this stuff in other posts as well , dont replace one fear with another.
    Other than that I wish you success on your improvement.

    Yeah, I am a very busy person and have a lot of other stuff to focus on but my mind is extremely uneasy and I can process a lot of information at one time so even with everything going on its pretty easy for me to also think about masturbating even when I have a lot going on.

    For me it really helps to think in the benefits I will have in the future when I overcome the addiction. I have anxiety and I have tried a lot of things but almost nothing helped. Believing that doing nofap will heal me gives me hope and makes easy to abstain.
    I also notice when I have a long streak that I build more muscle mass, but could be placebo. sorry for my english

    I meditate every morning and have a few ways of calming myself but my brain just never stops thinking and that includes thinking about masturbating so I don't really go 30 mins without thinking about everything.

    Officially its day 2..
    Unofficially its day 3.
    Yesterday, i felt a sudden spurt of energy, like adrenaline coursing through me, like i had drank a lot od coffee.. Couldnt even sleep the entire night..
    Lovey dovey thoughts are roaming in my head..im abstaining from porn but i find myself searching for erotic stuff to read every now and then.. Im fantasizing a lot.. Pecking my D all the while..but its good that i stopped it instantly as i realized what was happening..

    Its good you realized and stopped. Try to not fantasize bro, it will make slower to see the benefits and eventually you will have wet dreams. I had to stop looking at twitter and forums because it makes me start thinking about M.

  14. Welcome to NoFap. All the very best and I wish you success. Perhaps starting a journal in the forums will be helpful.

    Day 2 GOD day 1 was hard and Day 2 is looking the same or worse I feel the same way and have wanted to look for erotic material just to look at. but only did it once for about 5 mins. Also, it was not porn just people who I found attractive. I know we can do it but daaaamn this is gonna be hard!

    You know what.. The harder it is the better your condition is..the more sexually active you feel, the less will be your time to recover.. For me it was easy, you know why? Because i literally feel negligible sexual activity inside my head and no sexual impulse down there.. I get no erections, no surprise boners and no morning wood.. That means the damage is significant and it will take more time for me to start feeling stuff.. I dont feel attracted to any woman whatsoever, i dont check women out and thats a very bad thing if you look at it from sexual health perspective.. Just today, i had a girl sitting right beside me, flirting with me and i couldnt care less.. And this is not normal.. You getting my point bro..
    Whats good for me is im experiencing a little less brain fog and a little more energy.. Soon enough, im gonna delete instagram or diable my IG account..
    Just hang in there, its a good thing that youre feeling tempted, aroused and having the urge to PMO.. For me, theres no urges.. Im looking at a very long and hard flatline followed by a strenuous and long period of temptation..
    All i ask of you is, dont relapse..go full blown hardmode..dont watch anything arousing or even read such stuff.. Those are just pixels and words created by somebody else.. If we dont abstain from these things we will never be able to have anything real, something to call our own..

    I never thought of it that way. Thank you. I will go full hard mode! For the rest of this no arousing material unless it's happening in front of my eyes IRL. But I know you will go through this phase as your get your energy back and as you start to produce those hormones again. It is simply a matter of time for you to get your life back and I'm here for you you can do it! I believe in you even when you are sad, don't give in. Keep going and soon we'll both have our lives back. YES DELETE IG ITS SO BAD FOR YOU! I deleted mine as soon as I started this and deleted my account.

    Day 3 (official)
    Day 4 (unofficial)
    The lovey dovey feelings and fantasizing is not there anymore.. Energy levels have taken a slight drop as compared to yesterday but still better than before nofap..
    Insomnia looming large.. Had 4.5 hour sleep last night and 3 hour sleep, the night before it..
    Less brain fog..
    I may have entered flatline..

    Day 3 last night I was hanging out with some friends and had a good time but kept getting mad at myself for not being able to focus I feel like I have a little more energy now. I am also happy I got through day 2 it was really bad I meditated to try and calm it down but that didn't work at all. So I'm happy I could overpower the urge with sheer will.

    The more the brain fog goes away the better overall it's only getting better each day. Slowly getting healthier and a better mental state.
