Hello. I am hoping this can be an open journal of my final reboot/streak, where people can talk, vent, give advice, and basically all be account ability partners. This thread might turn out as a fail, but I am still going to create this anyways. Let me tell you about my half year long journey thus far. I joined nofap around March of 2015 in hopes to stop masterbaiting. Porn was never(and still isn't) a big issue with me. It was very hard in the beginning. I could only last around a few days and then give in. These small streaks continued, but gradually grew bigger. And next thing I know, it's September of 2015. My streaks are still quite small (around 2 weeks on average.) The reason I started nofap was due to the psychological and physical impacts masterbaiting would have on me. Any type of loss of semen (whether masterbaiting, or a wet dream, or a random ejaculation) would cause these side affects. These side affects included of brain fog, lack of motivation, tiredness and fatigue, dry skin and acne, loss of memory, and a HUGE loss of confidence and social skills (probably due to brain fog.) My brain fog consists of many thoughts going through my head at a time, as well as overthinking EVERYTHING. This affects me mostly in school and social situations. The lack of motivation is pretty self explanatory. The fatigue deprives my from my abilities in sports (currently a high schooler who plays basketball and track and field.) The motivation and fatigue both contribute to my lack of progression in the 2 sports I once excelled in. Also, I am extremely skinny. I can't gain any weight. Just thought that might be of use to someone who is reading this with some advice. Dry skin and acne are a huge factor in why I want to stop. I know for a fact that my acne is caused by ejaculation. I have tested this theory many times and it has not failed me once. While on my streaks, my acne goes away around the day 7 mark, and stays away. The day I relapse of have a wet dream, my acne slowly comes back. My confidence goes way down due to this. My social skills also go down because of this as well as the brain fog. I feel like all of these negative side affects go hand in hand with each other. They are all correlated. Now, I have gotten a lot better at not giving in and staying clean. However, Wet Dreams are a big PROBLEM for me. I encounter wet dreams almost every other night. They completely disrupt my streak. Wet Dreams are a form of ejaculation, thus giving me the side affects. Now many people say that one cannot control wet dreams. However, I have noticed that not drinking at least 2 hours before bedtime and emptying out your bladder before bed can help a lot. I have found this to work around 80% of the time. However, some nights it hasn't worked. But I have also found out after many trials that consuming a lot of water before the "2 hour beginning", is not a good idea. It is better to spread your water intake throughout the day. This not only solves the problem of not being completely empty, it also is good for the body. This may seem like common sense, but do admit I only recently discovered this. So, this journal will be day by day responses of mine, comparing all of those negative traits to what I am feeling physically, mentally, and emotionally on the given day. My goal is to stop ejaculation from my life completely. Support and advice would be greatly appreciated.
