    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.
    Or a few strangers trying to feel good about doing some stupid bullshit instead of, Oh, I don't know, cutting back a little like a normal person?

    Just do it after the day before bed for fucks sake. Then you won't be wasting useful time.

    Even if you buy into the anti masturbation shit why do you feel it necessary to discuss the frequency of you jerking off with strangers Jesus christ

    You can drop addictions authentically and permanently in a second if you figure out causality.

    That's why I advocate that instead of putting huge amounts of effort into what amounts to nothing more than covering up symptoms.
    Of course you have to set an objective. You can't just tell yourself "alright I will lose 40 kilos in 4 months" while thinking "i still crave for cookies, and after I finish I will eat one a day instead two"

    It would be like losing weight for the society, because the general view on this is that people should not be obese, thus should lose weight. So you'd not be losing weight for yourself, but for others. Change that principle and you're on to be a winner.

    I'll join this, if someone here can list out to me proven causal links between the negative claims and fapping to porn, I'm not seeing any in the research.

    Whats with the sudden influx of anti-porn/anti-masturbation shit on FP? It's been proven masturbating occasionally is good for you and even lowers chance of prostate cancer later in life.
    If you read the OP then you'd know that you can fap under this diet

    a bunch of nerds read a disputed study about how too much masturbation is bad for you and they need to feel validated by promising strangers on the internet that they won't masturbate anymore
    Yeah only you neglected the research papers and this

    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?

    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'm sort of in the same situation. I am 19 never had a girlfriend and never had sex. 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.

    Maybe we should change this to don't watch porn more than once a week, because this is seriously fucking hard..
    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.

    To be terribly honest this whole thing is extremely subjective
    Some people have less self control and are affected less by things like this. You might have masturbated every day and that would have been a terrible thing, but instead of going cold turkey why not just cut back? I've always limited myself to once or twice a week, tops.

    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.

    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?

    Changes will happen if you believe in this bullshit enough and convince yourself into it, like a placebo.

    'My girlfriend doesn't respect me because I satisfy myself'

    Oh please. She should respect you more for that.
    It makes her feel un-sexy to know I'm watching porn and I feel like I treated her like shit every time I watched it.
    By watching porn you define yourself as needing supplementary sexual satisfaction besides her. That's not respectful in the slightest. She should show you the respect you show for her.
    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.

    Yeah, but if you masturbate to porn then it may make her feel un-sexy (as said before, and depends on the girl).

    Let's clarify. 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.
