    Hello dear friends at NoFap. I have been able to successfully attain about 35 days of nofap including no porn and orgasm. I have seen a lot of guys talk about how they have crazy energy and what not, but me on the other hand feel lazy than ever. I feel like either I'm gonna take the high road to excellence or the low road back to porn. I feel stuck right in the middle. I want to live a fruitful lifestyle, but I find I don't have what it takes at times to maintain that type of lifestyle. On the other hand I feel masturbation and porn calling my name. A desire that I can't seem to shake.. plus on top of all that I get sexual urges in my body like surges of electricity.. It's hard to cope at times..

    Hey man I know what those urges are like, and you are right to describe them as surges of electricity that's exactly how it feels to me, it's a rush that demands to be released. It is a powerful force indeed. I want to help you but I am only 2 weeks in and I haven't reached the stage you are at yet so I cannot advise from experience (btw well done for doing 35 days, respect) You have come so far, please stick it out for those 90 days, they say that's when mind begins to successfully rewire it's pathways.

    I will definitely push towards 90 days and thanks for the respect. Oh and to me wisdom and advice is valuable regardless of who gives it.. Everyone has something valuable to give. That's why they're here.

    I think I know what you mean about those urges!

    The hard thing about making it to 90 days is you really can't let your guard down at any point in there. I failed a few times now around day 60 because I didn't stay fully committed and when an urge came I gave in a little bit, which led to a little bit more, which led to a lot.

    I know it can be done, but it's pretty tough.

    Review the thread from JiltedJohn and if You have time study: http://s3.amazonaws.com/bbemail/PROD/ulib/64he1k/docs/Mantak Chia - Taoist Secrets of Love.pdf
    The sex energy which is gathered during celibacy must be transmutated into more spiritual form, otherwise it will seek the way to release. Everything is in that book. Unexpressed emotions may have negative effect on health which You correctly named - stagnation. In TCM it's called Liver Qi Stagnation. Yoga, Tai Chi and other forms of moderate exercises can help also.
