    Some people complain that they are not getting results on SR and i believe it is because they are edging in some way or another.
    They either edge to porn, dating apps, youtube triggering clips, strip clubs etc.
    The main mistake we do on SR is thinking that semen retention is the only thing that's behind all the super powers.
    It isn't. The main reason behind the benefits is a calm balanced mind.
    That is what makes a man a man.
    A mind that isn't continuously stimulated by lustful thoughts and scenes is a super mind.

    Very well said! Dirty and negative thoughts alone can cause damage to the body, can't underestimate it.

    You are right this is the best approach, I did 115 days nofap with this attitude. It has changed me, though I have binge relapsed for last few months. I know what to do, and I will do it. Today is my day 3.
    One thing I wanted to ask, after day 40 I had a severe flatline till day 100 I became very lethargic, depressed and anxious though there were no urges. Did u get a flatline? How did u deal with it?

    Yes flatline sucks.
    I had them between day 12 till day 60. I even got one recently between day 90 and 100. The second one wasn't as severe.

    What to do about it?
    Embrace it. It is a good sign that the brain is rewiring.
    It will pass.

    Yea, my energy levels tank like crazy first day after a PM session. I think any kind of stimulation, whether O is involved or not has some kind of effect on energy levels. Also excessive mental thoughts about Sex will do that to. I stopped these, dude I'm hitting most days waking up at 4AM, 3:30AM with so much energy I feel impatient. Even yesterday, I was working on a website, and I slept at like 1. I still woke up at 6AM, with no issues. Did not even want to sleep back since or anything.

    however we also need to understand we're men not robots, and that sexual this that will pop up in your head and out in the world. So on another perspective, let's not demonise and hate ourselves because we thought about some ass.

    It is about obsession vs just looking we are talking about.
    Lust isn't healthy.

    Sexual desire isn't the same as lust.
    Desire is fine and healthy.
    Making money is fine, being gluttony isn't.
