    80 days my brothers. Yes we can!!!

    Let´s welcome the new members of the Fellowship:

    Let´s give all we got!!!! Continuing with Soaring Eagle:


    "The phenomenon of soft legs is very common among brothers. It is a common sight in the forums to see brothers relating to soft legs that are lacking in strength. In TCM this is easy to explain, because kidneys govern the bones, also that the kidney meridian starts from the Yongquan acupoint at the bottom of the legs and continues upwards. Therefore, following masturbation or even nocturnal emission, the phenomenon of soft legs easily occur. This phenomenon has also been verified in TCM, masturbation induces porosity in the bones and a decrease in bone density. TCM also mentions the waist houses the kidneys, the kidneys runs through the knees. A common symptom of kidney deficiency is soreness in the waist and knees, many brothers suffer from waist pains. Many people would experience lots of pain when bending their waist. This, in reality, is the typical expression of inadequate kidney essence, a signal from the body to not indulge any further.

    I masturbated frequently during middle and high school, when playing basketball I would often sprain my ankle. Many times when it happened there was no body contact involved. After having masturbated I would always feel weakness in the legs, my footing not being firm. But I didn’t know it was caused by masturbation and I didn’t know about medical principles. Now that I have studied TCM theory I came to understand the underlying reasons.

    These days I’m watching NBA and happened to see Roosevelt from the Buffalo Bulls injure his knees, the situation was that the overlapping ligament of the left knees was torn, the next season is forfeited. Roosevelt’s injury was very peculiar, no body contact took place, he was holding the ball and made a forward leap, the knee was injured. Seeing such an injury, I dare to say that the night before the match, Roosevelt either had a nocturnal emission or was indulging, combined with the accumulation of wear and fatigue from the frequent matches, this strange kind of injury then happened.

    To this day I still remember a scene from Stallone’s Rocky 1, Rocky’s coach told him to not touch women, touching women makes one’s legs weak and would affect the performance during a match. In competitive sports it is taboo to touch women before a match, touching women weakens the legs and makes one unable to properly perform many movements, injuries also occur more easily. I have seen the boxing king Tyson’s documentary, when commenting about his loss versus Douglas in Japan, Tyson said that he lost the match due to his indulgences and entered the match in a bad physical state, the consequence is easy to imagine; defeated by a vastly inferior Douglas."

    Sorry, brother yesterday I relapsed because I haven't tried to change my life that hard and due to this lockdown laziness swept my mind and I wasn't preparing for exams that I have to attempt in order to get a new job and I know deep there my concise was saying that I need to study as I am going to quit my current job for a better one but I am unable to be determined and self-disciplined and I have wasted two months of time without studying and all these factors combined with anxiety coupled with some porn shit that arose in the mind lead to brain fog of which I lost the game.

  11. Came so close to relapse this morning - as close as possible without actually taking the plunge.

    Woke up early, couldn't get back to sleep, one thing led to another until I sat literally one click away from porn. Thank God I snapped out of it. I'm still going, day 5.
     
  12. Today day six starts...with almost no urges to watch any content....with no urges for m.o..... i am keeping myself busy in household works and workout....and my exams are going to start, hope to stay quite and strong enough.....still i got no rank among u...
     
  13. Day 5 completed!

    Feeling good and relaxed. I also did a review of my porn filters to make sure they were all up and running.

    Bad relapse today .... gf got a phone call during sex that made her really stressed and she had to go. I hadnt orgasmed yet so I just went on porn sites while she was sitting next to me. She freaked out telling me it was really humiliating and disrespectful and she left. It was a bad moment but overall I feel way stronger and better than 15 days ago. Almost a hobbit but now back to an Orc.

    Stupid question: how do I reset the badge timer?

  17. Near the top of the page, under the NoFap logo in the navbar you'll see "Update Day Counter". That takes you to the page where you can reset/alter it.
     
  18. She's right about it being humiliating and disrespectful towards her. Porn is never a solution. Maybe you both could try to avoid distractions in the future.
    Regardless, you're making progress. Learn out of your mistakes and keep going!

    I agree with @FellowCompanion above. Being completely present during intimacy is better, if you can find a way to be candid with each other. I would be disappointed if a sexual partner answered a phone call. Ideally, smartphones ought to have no place in the bedroom, even as alarm clocks :)
