    Just made an account. Looking for a small group of APs to quit porn and masturbation for 365 days!
    You will change massively in the process and the excess energy from NoFap will enable you to grow in other areas of your life.

    There are some rules:
    1) Everytime you have the urge to watch porn or masturbate, you will go and take a cold shower for 60 seconds.
    2) You are expected to meditate everyday for atleast 20 minutes everyday to rebuild your focus and harness any withdrawal symptoms.
    3) You will start a new hobby or activity that you always wanted to do but couldn't. This will be your new focus from now and will replace porn/masturbation for 365 days.
    4) You will share any resistance, feelings or withdrawal symptoms on this page here and list possible solutions to those at the end of your comment. You can then expect a reply from one of the APs in the group.

    If you suffer from extreme symptoms or signs of mental illness, you are first expected to seek some professional help.

    Serious Males Only!

    Hey, there I'm new to NoFap! I'm 19y/0 and have probably been PMO'ing for a decade, more than once a day for the at least the last 5 years. I really want to join the 365 days challenge, as for someone who has been in contact with porn so long and especially during my formative years, I'm afraid a 90-days reboot ain't gonna cut it.
    I'm a Buddhist, so I already meditate semi-regularly. So regular meditation shouldn't be a problem for me. In fact, it's actually been a long goal of mine.
    Also been trying to learn Cantonese for a while but it's going very fast haha I'd allocate the PMO-time to learning Cantonese. Please hit me up with the specifics of the group. Will it be restricted to this post or while be something like a WhatsApp or Telegram-group chat?

    This is very interesting. I like the rules and I have some ideas what my new hobby should be. When do we start?

    I'm in....I need to find me a hobby...but I will figure that out by the time we stop adding members. I'm trying to meditate at least 10 minutes a day now, but I think I will be able to add another ten easy enough.

    I've recently had a few week long streaks. But that is always followed with a binge of 3 to 4 days.

    Sorry I've never been too good at keeping that badge up to date. I wish I couldve got to 114. My best is 27 of hard mode. But that was a while back already. I like the idea of committing to a new hobby, I've tried to pick up a few things but never have truly committed to one.

    Hey guys, would love to join a motivated group of people. At this point, every day without PMO is a win for me.

    Definitely urges...they always seem to sneak in to a guys thoughts. I downloaded just a simple doodle app and made a sketch divided into 24 sections, every hour I go w/o pmo I fill it in green. Idk if it will help or not but gives a little bit of feel good every hour I guess.

    Haha good timing! Yesterday was Day 3 for me and also the last exam of this semester. I spent basically the whole day with friends and didn't have a single thought related to PMO. Today, Day4, however was a different thing. I had to keep myself preoccupied by studying Cantonese and working out HARD ... my arms have never been bigger haha
    How are you guys keeping your urges in check?

    Just been trying to avoid using technology as much as possible to keep away from triggers, working out, trying to focus my energy on things rather than sitting around. I find my weakest times are when I'm bored. Made it 3 days so far!

    Ofcourse you can! But you have to be active in the group to stay in. That means posting atleast 1-2 times a week. If I notice you are no longer active, you will be removed.
    Welcome to the Group! Please introduce yourself and why do you want to stop fapping?

    If we could all start with sharing our reasons about why we are here in the first place, that would be fab!
    To start off, its really important to be aware and clear why do you want to quit fapping?!
    Once you are aware of why you are in it, that will help you go much further in this journey and help you in the hardest times.
    Please share your reasons for no fapping below:

    For me it's a matter of really quite a few things I guess.

    1st is the fact that P goes against my beliefs, I am a Christian and everything about porn seems to contradict what the bible teaches.

    2nd I think is probably the fact that I have never been in a serious relationship with anyone and I think PMO is a leading cause of that.

    3rd is the time wasted...there is countless hours that I will never get back to use on more productive things.

    These are a few.of the reasons I am here.
