Default No Fap? Have you tried it? Support thread.

I'm not sure many of you know this but there is a movement called "no fap". Basically it's a commitment to stop masturbating and your life will benefit tremendously. While I can't know for sure that the second part is true. It certainly can't get any worse from stopping. That I know.

I tried looking for any threads about this but I didn't see any so I apologize if there is already one. Although this will be more personalized as well. And if you don't want details I recommend you stop reading here. Being 100% honest here.

Well I am going to try it. Basically cold turkey on Pornography and Masturbation. I've struggled with this addiction for a long time. I've gotten to the point where it's several times a day on non work days and a couple times on work days. I'll spend a half hour easy browsing the internet looking at different videos. After being offered to go on social events (the few I receive) I will sometimes weigh the pros and cons of going vs making up an excuse to stay home and masturbate. I've resorted to doing it in places that I am frankly ashamed of because of this unquenchable thirst. I even started saving a lot of it on my hard drive in case I ever lose my internet. This addiction has even made me look at taboo stuff I would have never looked at before because I have become used to normal pornography and this just absolutely sickens me. I have even convinced myself multiple times that there wasn't a problem and this was "normal". Everyone does it so how could this negatively affect me. I haven't had a girlfriend in over a year and whenever I think about the future I always assume that I'll just quit when I start dating someone. However the past has shown me that I am not capable of that. If you have ever seen the television series Dexter then you will know what I am referencing when I say it's like a dark passenger. My addiction will hide itself until I am bored at the computer and then this uncontrollable desire hit's me. And it's not the desire that's the worst part. The worst part is how fast my mind turns against me and starts justifying and rationalizing what I am doing. It's like there are a million reasons to quit but that one reason to continue this obsession wins out.


I've wanted to quit for the longest time because I honestly believe it is causing part of my social ineptitude and anxiety/depression issues. (that's another story). Well it wasn't up until a few days ago that I read something that really hit home when I was considering quitting again. It's from a female perspective but that doesn't diminish how much this hits home for me. The link:

What I Wish I'd Known Before Watching PornÂ*|Â*Lauren Dubinsky

After I read that it honestly brought tears to my eyes how true some of those sentiments were. It was with this article and a few others that I had new found courage and vigor to try and finally beat this.


Last time I looked at any porn was 6 days ago and masturbated 2 days ago. I am going to try my hardest to go without either indefinitely. I also completely wiped everything off my computer and tried to make it harder for myself to look at it online. I know there is a very good chance I will slip up but I will not let that stop me. I want to change. I need to change.



So there's my story in a nutshell. If you have questions or even better want to share similar experiences or make new commitments to changing your life for the better then post up. It would be awesome to have like minded people in here supporting each other to make this goal more achievable.

And please if you have nothing positive to say just move on. I really don't need anyone trying to tell me it's ok because it's not for me.



EDIT: For anyone who feels the same. You aren't alone!

there are several health issue that can/will occur by stopping. you should really talk to doctor before stopping. your sperm actually changes (think expiration date) after 8-10 days of not being used. prostate issues occur. you'll have wet dreams like a teenager again. it can cause ED.

If it is effecting your day to day then its a problem. Find you a nice girl who likes to fawk and get that shit squared away Holmes. As a society we are over run with sexual imagery everywhere we look. Its difficult to not want to flog the dolphin when nearly every TV ad has a bangin hot chick half naked selling you a product of some sort. Porn addiction is an epidemic currently but no one talks about it. I commend you on bringing it up and putting yourself out there. Keep yourself busy and emerse yourself into public forms of societal inclusion so you have less time alone. If that doesn't work then superglue sandpaper to your palms for increased coefficient of friction. As well as deterring you from strokin it will decrease the amount of objects you drop.

More than anything I just wanted to get it out in the open. Figured it would help distance myself from it.

Care to cite the bad health effects? I've done a lot of research on the matter and I have seen quite a few things refuted with new studies. And too much p/m/o causes ed as well so....

The p with the m is the main issue. I need to go long enough to rewire my brain to break my addiction. Then I can maybe start occasionally m'ing again.
