>No more NFN threads
I knew most of you guys were just kidding yourselves.
Get in here those who are going to pass the first week with me.
im here dude. my freekin nads are about to explode, but im here.
It boils down to two things: breathing and flexing the muscle used to stop letting out piss.
'Masturbation,' then, becomes a sort of sexual massage practice where the goal isn't to have a full-on orgasm, but circulate the feeling throughout your body
>inb4 sounds like woo-woo bullshit
That's what I thought at first but, ever since trying it, I feel a hell of a lot more energized.
Thank you. I am doing nofap for the sake of spiritual cultivation. The end result of this practice is to cultivate the 'valley orgasm' which sounds identical to what you have just described. The energising aspect of the practice is also congruent with my studies.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You WILL want to consider limiting the time spent towards this practice. It is possible to get too wrapped up and reach the 'point-of-no-return.' Keep this in mind. I like to max at around 10 - 20 minutes if I'm doing this practice.
I know exactly what you mean, and have experienced partially the effects of the valley orgasm using a similar method. The temptation to blast cum becomes immense, especially if you let yourself begin fantasising.
i need to stay away from a lot of boards including this one because theres pornographic material everywhere.
Before when masturbated chronically, still images did nothing for me. I had to force myself to fap to hardcore porn videos.
But now what I am on nofap, everytime I see a lewd picture i get rock hard. I got rock hard writting "lewd picture"
NoFap November Day 6 here. Furtherest I've ever made it. Also the first time I've taken it seriously. I think part of the reason I've been able to make it this far is because for some reason my libido has been lower than usual anyway. Think it's because I stopped taking Zinc supplements (Ran out and never bought more)...
Maybe I'll buy some today and find out.
Everyone has a second personality. This can actually be used to your advantage when you acknowledge the face that it is a different person that is responsible for you're relapse or bad behaviour.
Lets try to explain this. You have your true self, this is who you truly are, deep down, your dreams, values, aspirations and expressions. And then you have you're evil twin, egoic, selfish, materialistic, always seeking pleasure and approval. Now, most people's lives are dominated by their evil twin. The twin is lazy, they want to masturbate, or drink or do drugs or whatever it may be. They do not care about others and they especially do not care at all about the "good" twin.
Now, what you must realize is the only way to win the battle is to kill the evil twin. Kill your ego by starving it to death. Do not give in to temptation, say no to the ego's requests for pleasure and approval. Let go of you're attachment to it. Stop caring what other's think of you, live your live true to your values. Starve your ego to death, do not feed it porn or obsessive thoughts about not watching porn.
Oh wait hold on, am I saying to stop thinking about not watching porn? Stop counting the days since you last "fapped"? Yes, because the ego cannot tell the difference between thinking about fapping, and thinking about not fapping.
i stopped in like late october because the trap guide said not to.
Dont even feel any sexual feelings at all, i was looking at porn yesterday to test and i couldnt even get interested.
Cuttings way up though.
So I just looked at my dick and... man, what a difference! I didn't know my dick could look this color. It's like my dick is glowing!
I think you have a point about how thinking too much about nofap could lead to relapse, but your twin thing is off.
You can't 'kill' this selfish 'id' nature, it's always going to be there because it's your physical body speaking for its basic momentary desires. The best you can do is 'master' it in the same way a good man might lead a woman. You have to constantly work on explaining to your id that pleasure doesn't work that way, that there are more meaningful forms of pleasure to get by doing things other than fapping, and you have to deal with the lies, manipulations, and excuses of the id.
Was trying to do edging for a long time but not cumming at all for couple of days but on the third I gave in to the temptation and spew buckets, holy shit, didnt know I could hold that much jizz. Gone for weeks without before but it was nothing like that.
