Hey, the thread's back.

My dad got vaccinated and I might get vaccinated myself soon too.
I'm now fully vaccinated. Felt pretty crummy the day after my second dose, which surprised me a bit because the flu vaccine doesn't usually bother me at all. Never got Covid (as far as I know), so I feel lucky.

That vaccine did you use?

Moderna. No effects at all after the first one, the second one wiped me out. No biggie though, only lasted about a day.

Day One. After ignoring a bunch of hostile posters yesterday and seeing Spaz banned, I'm now starting a new streak with the same end-date to September 25, 2021. If I'm unable to go nofap to Sept 25, it's May 1st. then if I can at least do 30 days it would beat the last 11 days.
11 days is the previous record. Hopefully haters don't start bombing this thread with nonsense once I go over a week like the last time!

I'm also partially shocked. I didn't know people would have such an issue with nofap. I'm getting the feeling like almost everyone is on here fapping, regardless if they are getting tail or not, and abstaining for more than 3-4 days is difficult for most people to do. This is probably because the internet has made access to porn on a ridiculous level today compared to anytime in history. I remember in the 90s, if I wanted to look at porn as a teenager, I had to sneak into a variety store at the back section and the variety store owner would tell me to put down the magazine if I looked like a minor. It would take a good half-hour to hour to download a picture on the ultra-slow internet. Fast forward today, I couldn't imagine a world like this when viewing porn was a challenge of sneaking into variety stores and picking a book up when the owner wasn't watching! I get it that this challenge is hard. But I'm going to give it another try.

Try having an exercise routine before you go to bed. After that, do some spiritual readings like reading The Bible for a peaceful night sleep.

NoFap is a lifestyle, is not something that you try do to once or twice and then quit. Most of the time, I'm on a noFap streak, sometimes it lasts a week, sometimes 4 days, sometimes 55 days!

Yes it's difficult to abstain, I noticed that the 1-4 days are the most difficult, after that you get the vibe and it gets better but you have to monitor yourself all the time, you can relapse at any moment. I remember when I was young, access to porn was limited, now it's just crazy, within a minute you can watch porn.

Like you said, I don't understand why some people get so emotional about noFap, why do they hate? I mean, it doesn't change anything in their lives. I just don't get it. NoFap is another mean to an end, and the end is to become a better version of ourself.

I'm on day 5 now.

I am on day two. No resistance at all. Looks like the last relapse fix was good enough and satisfied me. Its sort of wierd when you abatain, relapse, abstain again. Its like the images you relapsed on are more real than if you are at this more frequently. But that is not a good reason for a streak!

Read a bunch of Bible verses that talk about how the Lord is looking at our hearts to see if we are unblameable in holiness before Him. Now I'm worried whether ignoring people on here was an expression of hate? Does God think I murdered people in my heart by ignoring them? Well I'll just unignore them if He thinks so. I don't hate anyone. I'm just trying to keep the peace. We know we can't all get along as adults on here and this is the most logical thing to do to maintain peace and prevent more people from getting banned right? This should be a good thing, not a hateful thing. Why does that feel wrong today? If this post is not enough to convince God that I do not hate anyone on here then I'll unignore if I have to.

How does this relate to fapping? Well if my heart is lusting then it's not holy either. Hate and Lust were covered on Jesus' sermon on the mount as heart sins, as well as referenced in the book of James (James 2:11). But, fortunately its still day two.

I hate to overpolice your posts on this thread, but this thread was intended to be about @mikedee's NoFap journey (with others sharing their own experiences as well), not about @corrector's personal relationship with God and his other oddities... of which seemed to have hijacked this thread.

I've been DM'd by other members about a few of your posts here...

I must remind you that religion, along with politics, are two topics that are not allowed on this forum (despite religion frequently getting a pass recently).

If you're going to post in this thread going forward, keep it exclusively about NoFap. This isn't your diary.

---

Anyways, congratulations on getting through Day 1, often the hardest day. Keep busy throughout the day and remember that the urge to Fap is often fleeting and will pass rather quickly if you find something else to preoccupy your time, energy, & attention with.

I don't mind @corrector's posts, we all have a different way of dealing with noFap. But if religion and politics are not allowed I understand.

I'm on day 5. Day 1-4 are the most difficult. I've been "Tindering" a lot lately. What I notice is that, although I get a lot of matches, none of them is really exciting/interesting, when you approach on the street and you get the number, you feel proud, you feel like a man, you feel like you did what you had to do. On Tinder, you get bored after a while: ding! another match.. I like the excitement of a good old cold approach, especially after 7-8 days of noFap.

In other words, it's about building good habits. Instead of bad.

Exactly! Have your ever been on a noFap streak?
I don't really look at fapping as a good or bad thing, or as something that you can or can't do. But my philosophy is that it should be kept to a minimum, because if not it speaks to a lack of self-discipline. Everyone needs a release now and then, but there are better things you can and should be doing with your time. Porn, on the other hand, I think is straight up bad because of the way it can affect your brain. Sometimes it's hard not to look though, since it's so readily available.

So I don't really think in terms of streaks, I just want to keep it to a minimum. On any given day, it's not something I want to be doing, even though I don't think I'm going to gain any super powers from abstaining.

You have a gf right? Its easier when there is an outlet. The question really is, if you are in a relationship, or are getting laid regularly, then why would anyone still be fapping over getting the real thing or even supplementing that?

I always think fapping are for nearcels and incels whose imagination is filling the gaps over not having someone and then nofaps are designed with an intent that if you stop fapping then you'll be more motivated to do approaches, be able to think more sharply on your feet (ie be able to socialize better) if you do approach, or you can channel that energy into something else. If someone is fapping in a relationship then it means either there is no sex, the sex is bad or something is wrong with the relationship because a real woman should always be better than an imaginary one or an image on the computer.

Yes, it is easier. But, and this might sound strange - I don't see the two activities as being the same. They each are stimulating in their own unique ways. Doing one doesn't necessarily satisfy the desire for the other. I've heard of some guys who are getting laid the most by random girls, and these are the same guys who are fapping multiple times a day. These guys are just oversexed, or highly sexual, I guess.

From what I've read on message boards like this, it seems pretty apparent that fapping affects different individuals in different ways. It's that way with many things. Some guys lose their edge if they fap, some guys will fap multiple times a day and still clean up with women, others it doesn't seem to effect one way or the other. I've always felt it was a good thing to "retain your chi" as I jokingly call it, but while I think there are benefits, the benefits are only marginal, a small advantage. Unless it's a problem that affects your life adversely. It's kind of like alcohol. Some guys can drink and become quickly addicted, other guys can drink moderately and it doesn't affect their lives.

Day three. Heavy resistance overnight. Got a sensory feeling. This time I has a sex fantasy of getting a rusty trombone as a happy ending from a nuru massage that popped into my mind. Resisted the urge to fap or watch escort pics. It was strong enough to have fapped without porn as it was a tornadic lustful feeling.
