I don't get why there are people here opposing so much against this. For me, it's a try to change my life. I'm 23, never had a girlfriend, never had sex either, I'm a bit overweight and I'm way less social than I want to be. This served to me as a wake-up call, to try to get my life back on track. I know that stop fapping to porn will NOT just magically get me a girl. It will not solve any of my problems all by itself. I KNOW that. But it's a first step to try to change me. Also, I'm in no way going "PORN SHOULD BE BANNED" or "FAPPING IS NOT HEALTHY". Both things have a point and I don't want to tell anyone they should stop it. If I am successful with this, hur-fucking-ray. Awesome. If not, at least I tried it, and I can always go back to jerking off 4-5 times a day. If you don't like this whole thing, why are you even here?
Last night was a big failure for me. Today is Day 1.

It's getting way easier.
[QUOTE=BlackCrow;35658389]Because maybe these strangers feel that pornography and masturbation is most of their daily schedules? Or they feel that they perform said actions too frequently. Besides, a little abstinence from pornography never hurt anyone. OP, y'know, count me in, I guess. Day 1 is tomorrow, yaaayyy.[/QUOTE] jesus fucking christ there's this thing called self control you know, we're not saying MASTURBATE ALL DAY ERRY DAY we're saying you should masturbate and watch porn in a healthy amount
Yes, my plans are working! Soon, no one on Facepunch shall watch porn! HAHAHAHAH
I don't understand how people can Fap more than once or twice a day. Any more than that for me and it just feels uncomfortable rather than pleasurable.
I've been in an overall better mood since I've stopped looking at porn. I can think more clearly, too.

If this whole "no porn" thing ends up working I will be a happy man, other wise I will go back to watching porn. Having neither is going to be a bitch for a while. Hopefully I'll get desperate enough I'll talk to some girls and ask one out.
[QUOTE=mobrockers2;35648112]Maybe we should change this to don't watch porn more than once a week, because this is seriously fucking hard..[/QUOTE] I think watching it once a week would be safe and acceptable, but if it's hard for you to quit then you may want to go longer without porn before you decide to reduce yourself to watching it once a week so you don't get into the habit of watching porn + jacking off again, and begin doing it more and more without even noticing.

Hnnng. Day 5/6, almost broke as usual (Like erryday), had a sex dream also, which was less banging the shit out of something than making love to the person, and I feel blank right now. I don't think getting high yesterday was a good idea, I'm still sort of out-of-it, and feeling very lazy.

Day 5, shit's all good, wish I could play more Path of Exile but otherwise everything's good. Sauna still gives me the temptation because hurr durr 95 celsius Day three was the toughest nail, after that it got real easy.
I'm not really having any urges or anything. Meh.
Count me in, Í'm 16 and I'm afraid to become a rapist in the future I need to take actions!

Still going strong.

Will the benefits of this be experienced for those only who look at porn/masturbate multiple times a day or at all? If somebody only indulges themselves once every 2nd or 3rd day, are there still gains to be realized?

I think I activated easy mode by getting my old Xwing vs Tie fighter disk to work. Now I'm playing with a completely different kind of joystick :v:
You'll start seeing three X-wings flying in a row.

That's not respectful in the slightest. She should show you the respect you show for her.[/QUOTE] I think it's crucial that you are able to sexually gratify yourself, otherwise your going to be begging her for sexy time, even when she's not available. Besides, it sounds as if you're treating it as if the objective of a relationship is sexual encounters and not the associated feelings of love/connection/etc, which I think is a rather dry approach. If you just wanted sex on demand, you might as well just masturbate.

There's a difference between psychosomatics and placebo. Placebo's require an authority figure, trusted by an individual, who essentially tricks the person into believing a medicine will be effective. Psychosomatics on the other hand are willingly partaken in with the knowledge that IT IS a psychosomatic treatment and thus can be as effective as one believes. I hate the idea that such treatments are 'homoeopathic', 'less effective', or 'alternative' just because some physical change is not made to the body through intrusive surgery or pacifying drugs. Let's look at a few: Anxiety, depression, anger, negative mental states, bad thoughts, self-limiting beliefs, diet, and thousands of other things (some of these are causal as well, like poor diet leading to ill health) all arose through mental conditioning. Entertaining the notion that somehow you're going to forcefully purge thoughts out of your head using medicine is completely insane. Honestly, the only thing that makes sense is combating described negative mental functioning that arose naturally, with something to the contrary which also arose naturally, albeit by choice, AKA self-facilitated psychosomatics.
Wait, so I can't fap using my imagination? Fuck that shit.
