    Hello everybody. I am so glad to be a part of this community. The Monk mode the pmo option everything is so encouraging. Couple of months ago I was thinking of separate setting up something like this at a really small-scale. but did not know it already existed. I really hope my expectations are met in this site.

    In short I am starting this challenge today from now until 1 September. As a married man and father of two I just want to beat this whole topic. Anyone care to join me.

    Some info to help you be successful:

    Benefits of No PMO

    1. No social anxiety; 99% of time relaxed, calm, cool; easy to be sociable. If I do start to get nervous I think, "What do I have to be fearful about?" And I get calm in about 1-2 seconds.
    2. More attention from opposite gender -- without trying
    3. No brain fog; can concentrate easily. Can think clearer under pressure.
    4. Increased motivation & energy to get things done.
    5. More Stamina -- can hang in their longer at work (be tough) and complete projects; can work overtime, while others can't
    6. No fears; high levels of testosterone = strength and don't take bs. (No one has messed with me in 52 days +.)
    7. More time for good/productive things. Not wasting time going to phony porn sites; fapping to pixels; lusting, etc.
    8. The opposite gender increasingly becomes less and less of a priority.
    9. Improved Confidence -- (online comment) "porn and masturbation lowers your self-esteem and confidence"
    10. More Respectable -- (online comment) "if you resist the urge to masturbate -- a practice that is generally condemned -- you are likely to feel more respect for yourself; and others will respect you more." We all can quickly tell if a man or woman is fapping ... nervous ... weak … fearful … has shame [trying to hide something] …
    11. Improved Creativity and Resourcefulness

    *Somedays are so-so … and some are difficult due to "flat line". But your daily progress is motivating and inspiring to you & others.

    Tips to Successfully handle Urges or Temporary Temptations

    #1 Secret = Get Up and Go Outside [temptations usually only last 10-20 min] 2- Go on NoFap and make a post; or "like" some posts; or give advice 3- Listen to and Dance to your favorite music (fun and gets rid of excess energy) 4- Exercise, go to gym, go for a walk 5- Go to mall and talk with women (or men for females) 6- Go to store and buy yourself a reward/gift/treat (small daily; medium weekly; large monthly) 7- Work on your favorite hobby/passion/interest 8- Call, email or go visit a friend 9- Go walk a wonderful dog/cat/horse/llama around the block 10 - Have a "WHATEVER IT TAKES" attitude or mindset 11- Do a good deed for someone (extra points if they don't know who did it) 12- Take a break; take a nap (remind yourself that you are 100% in control and responsible for your behavior-actions) 13- All Things Are Possible 14 - Positive personal hygiene (brush teeth; shower) keeps your self-esteem high 15 - Fasting (water only) has many health benefits; a 1/2 day or more fast will help you have more self control 16 - Someone has said, "Taking it one day at a time, one urge at a time makes your goal manageable & successful." 17 - Use Distractions or Diversions [change the scenery] to help you overcome temporary temptations.
