This is a thread for people who are on the verge of giving in.

Post pics that would easily kill your erection/urge to fap. I'd say don't post anything too graphic, but I suppose that's up to the mods.

Sorry if this is shitty material. I have some gore but I'm not sure if that's allowed.

Something good is to put a keyboard shortcut on my computer (shift+F1) that instantly shuts it down. Good for when you have those brief moments of clarity that last shorter than it takes to hold the power button down. Stopped a relapse in progress last night.

Welcome to /nofap/

This board is for the discussion of nofap, noporn, and the societal implications of fapping and porn.

RULES

http://oxwugzccvk3dk6tj.onion/nofap/rules.html

>1. Stay on topic. The topic is pretty loosely defined here so use some common sense.

>2. Don't post porn. NSFW images will be deleted. Posting NSFW material as a shitty troll attempt will result in a comically long ban. This board is SFW, so keep it that way.

>3. Non-/nofap/pers are welcome to come and question the premise of nofap and to argue against nofap. That said, shitposts, flames, bait, spam, and trolls are not allowed and such threads will be locked or deleted.

Just those three.

If anyone needs to get a hold of me try my e-mail at plaguedoctornf@8chan.co.

And because I don't want to clutter the board with excess stickies:

ITT: dump /nofap/ infographs, videos, links, banners and other such things

I have yet to read this one but it was mentioned in the previous book, supposedly makes a distinction between amative and propagative sex, so its definitely a read for those who still want to enjoy sex and intimacy, while retaining the benefits of semen retention.

Well, I've been on and off nofap for about two years now. Most I've ever gotten was 55 days when I was sort of living innawoods. Whenever I go into a new living situation I try to not develop a fapping ritual, but eventually do and it gets easy to relapse from there. Failed an exam today and decided to be despondent all day and jerked it to some pretty queer shit. Basically, after turning it in I decided I was going to relapse, but pretend that I wasn't. It's always the same routine, but I just go on autopilot once I start going into my room with the computer. And Lord help me if I go to my parents' house where I fapped my teenage years away. At the end of the day I can't run from my problem forever because I can develop a ritual wherever I go.

I'm very glad that there is a place to discuss this that is not… reddit. I don't expect anybody to really care about all that whiny bullshit, unless you have anything interesting to say about getting all of these habits set up. I'm just going to post here and would really appreciate it if somebody would call me a faggot if I relapse.

Aaannd I relapsed. I made the whole little dance of moving towards it, such as using my computer too late and using it in bed, looking at shit saying I'd stop, stopping a few times and continuing because I did not physically remove myself from it. At this point, nofap is going to have to be noritual. It's unreasonable to say that I should only stop at the point of pulling out my pecker.

I suspect there are many shills on this board.

Neuroscience Speaks: How Using Porn Destroys Your Brain

Neuroscience now knows that willpower is a function of the prefrontal lobes of the brain. Scientific studies have also confirmed that using porn over and over actually reshapes these areas of the brain, literally eroding our willpower and our moral compass.

Neuroscientists call it hypofrontality. Hypofrontality is a state in which there is decreased blood flow to the prefrontal lobes of the brain. Hypofrontality is observed in schizophrenia patients and is also observed in all manner of addictions.

“Compulsiveness is a good descriptor of hypofrontality. Many porn users feel focused on getting to porn and masturbating even when a big part of them is saying, ‘Don’t do this.’ Even when negative consequences seem imminent, impulse control is too weak to battle the cravings.”

The porn-addicted brain has trouble thinking logically. When impulses and desires come from the midbrain, instead of being moderated, the brain feels these desires as compelling needs. The prefrontal region is supposed to be able to weigh consequences and situations and judiciously shut down cravings, but hypofrontality means the addict’s ability to do this is impaired.

The more one masturbates to porn, the more dopamine is released in the brain. Eventually dopamine receptors and signals in the brain fatigue, leaving the viewer wanting more but unable to reach a level of satisfaction. The viewer becomes numb to things once considered pleasurable. “To escape this desensitization, people, and men especially, expand their pornographic tastes to more novel stimuli,” Black writes. This leads, again, to more fatigue.

To bring the prefrontal lobes back into working order, a two-pronged attack is needed: (1) the old neural pathways must be starved, and (2) new neural pathways must be built and fed, increasing dopamine levels in a way that build up the prefrontal cortex.

I'm glad I never slid that far down the slippery slope. One year into BBW and SSBBW porn I realized what was happening to me and knew it was not right. I was only seeking new shit too get off too and could lead to scat and eventually snuff CP. Now I feel really bad for pedophiles and child molesters. Chances are they are invisible victims and useful scapegoats of the porn industry.

>Practically every change I make works for a few days, then I fuck up again and it no longer helps

All I really have to show for it is that most of my fetishes have faded or weakened considerably.

I don't like looking at porn, I don't like what it does to me. The fact that I managed to quit last year for an extended period gives me hope, but my inability to replicate it makes me despair.

DAY 34

I came close to relapsing today. The physical consequences were immediate and extreme, beyond anything I've ever experienced before - my hands were shaking uncontrollably. I stopped before it was too late because this scared the everloving shit out of me. On the other hand it means I'm making progress, a great deal of progress. I do not think I'll have to worry about another relapse after this.

DAY 35

Yeah I'm already feeling much better. Usually on previous streaks when I came close to relapsing, it took a few days to heal, whereas now I feel almost completely back on track. Also, yesterday my fantasies were much less vivid and compelling than they used to be, even at that extreme I felt an instinctive reluctance to indulge in them further.

>be like 10

>see that scene where some chick is naked, barely covered by fog

>curiously look up naked pics of her on the internet

It was all fucking downhill from there. Hentai has without a single doubt ruined my life. I know I shouldn't blame other people for my problems, but why in the name of fuck did my parents let me have a computer and unrestricted access to the internet at that young age? I've jacked off to the most depraved shit imaginable every single day for ten years, and it has destroyed my brain, my health, my personality, my social life, my intelligence, my free time, my morals, my sexuality, my chances at romantic love, everything.

Drugs can't do pic related to you, but hentai/porn will make you think it's normal. Porn/masturbation is essentially an opiate. It shoots a blast of dopamine straight into your brain, which you quickly become addicted and dependent to. Then you gain a resistance to that dosage, so you crave harder and harder hits (more depraved porn), and normal things in your life that SHOULD give you pleasure feel like nothing. This is just one of the countless problems with fapping, but imo it's the most important one. Anyways, I've been trying to do nofap for a while, the longest I've made it is 7 days. I'm on day 2 right now, which is an improvement from twice a day. Maybe I'll do one of those journal things.

Well, I'm fucking sick of it, I discovered porn at around age 9, give or take a year, and ever since I've turned into a social recluse. using pornography and masturbation as a stress reliever. Ignoring my problems only caused me more stress, leading me deeper into the hole. I've jacked off to about everything you could think off, but I'm still able to climax to clothed women and just my imagination, oddly enough. Of course the more perverse porn I've seen has burned itself into my mind, unfortunately. I've come to see that it's not just fapping that has a negative influence on my life, it's a lack of healthy routine and too much time on the internet.

I also have a much more shameful confession, I made an account on nofap.com, and I must say, it fucking sucks. I don't know what I expected from a forum but jesus, I can't talk about anything there, just not my kind of people. I'm hoping to find something more by writing my journal here.

Day one

I'm not sure if I should write these at the beginning of the day or the end, perhaps both?

Goals for today:

>Pushups, varied sets and reps to failure

>Study

I used to lift consistently when I was in high school, and for a while after I was out, until I got a hernia while benching. I've decided to start the 5/3/1 power lifting program tomorrow, it will give me something to do, and I always loved lifting.

Okay new entry and shit.

Day 1 ~ 4

After having a enlightening discussion with my boss and fellow co-workers about my performance and issues at work I decided to assess the issues causing me to slip up. Yeah the porn was one reason as well with my isolated social skills with people. A minor start to my recovery has started as well as my performance in work to literally unjust the fuckups that's been happening as it's literally Class-A nigger tier fuckups. So far so good to report as the next step is to get /fit/ and back to my artwork. I know as shit I'm rusty but I'll hate myself even more if I sqaunder my effort I have under this issue.

I fap daily. It feels great. Especially after a long day or if there is no time to fap for a while and I get blueballs going. It seems like it's stigmatized because of some sort of puritan values, and you all are just depriving yourself needlessly.

In a long distance relationship. I'm on day 40 nofap. Looked at porn here and there but didn't MO.

Mostly right now I just feel like I'm depriving myself of the ability to fap with my gf (it's all we have long distance atm) for no real benefit as, at 40 days, I feel no different. I still feel numb about some things, kind of obsessed with sex, desire to fuck everything that moves. I was hoping nofap would make me less focused on sex and feel more in tune in my relationship. It feels like the opposite is happening.

Lent ends tomorrow and I'm trying to decide: do I keep going? What will actually happen if I do? Will I actually feel any different cause I don't right now.

Do any of you just fap on the weekends or every other weekend? Semi-normal but WAY WAY WAY less than daily/multiple times daily?

We've already made this work for 2 years. Our situation is complicated, and we do get to see each other periodically throughout the year. I can't tell you the future so I don't know how sustainable it is until our situation changes BUT it's definitely worth it to me right now and has worked for 2 years. It just depends a lot on communication and honesty, but cumming over the internet together DOES help.

Yeah I'm thinking something like a 10-14 day cycle. Probably gonna give it a shot. I haven't felt anything different after 40 days so.

Fair points and you're entitled to your opinion. It's possible I'll feel that way after "a long time" but without knowing where "a long time" ends it's hard to say it's worth it for me since 40 days is a pretty fucking long time (compared to most people who can't make it 2 weeks) and I haven't felt any changes. May be some I'm not seeing, but I don't detect any.

a) I'm not really religious, I tried Lent as an exercise in self discipline; I'm not catholic (but I do believe in Christ)

b) If by "see other people now and then if it's a year long thing" you mean just fuck around with people who are close by while I wait to see her again then no, I have zero interest in that. If she isn't worth not fucking random hoes for then why would I commit to her? I didn't even want to be in a relationship, but I loved her too much not to try it with her and it's been worth it so far. Why would I tarnish that with some random stupid sluts who mean nothing to me (and will probably just try to use sex as an inroad to steal my resources and wreck my relationship anyway)?

It took about 2 weeks for me, but I noticed my tastes were more vanilla and I had fewer dirty thoughts. All it took was the thought of sex for me to get hard, though.
