    Why is this so hard for you all? I've been going for two days and I've not been "craving" porn or going crazy. Maybe it's just me.
    Wait until you get to a week and a half.

    That's when the fun starts...


    Also, I'm trying this. I tried it a long time ago but failed after a month.

    Redemption time baby.

    In first world countries we stop looking at porn for fun
    Well in third world countries they don't need porn. They have rape. And AIDS. Lots of AIDS

    You gotta not think about it.
    So if it's not a main part of your life, you're fine.

    Does looking at pornography/pornographic art without fapping have an adverse effect on this?

    I'd assume so, but to a lesser degree - still, I wouldn't condone it.

    By the way, now that we're on the subject, can somebody confirm that gays look upon these things differently than straights do? I believe I heard that somewhere.

    There's a good chance that it's not addiction, just biological attraction.
    You still might be addicted, though.

    I think maybe the list of successes / failures should have a "light beer" section for people that fapped, just not to porn.

    Edited:

    Cause not fapping full stop is a lot harder than not fapping to porn.

    They get their prostates touched by dicks/fingers/whatever, I think it's much easier for gays to get off and achieve erection.

    Straight people get their prostates touched too. That isn't exclusively a gay thing.

    Speaking from experience, anal stimulation of the prostate is a lot more intense than stimulating the penis.

    Yup. I've never personally had it done, but I've known people who have. I think I would need to trust a girl a little bit before I let her stick her finger up my bum though. I'd definitely try it, but not just with a random chick.

    This has turned into PORNY 2012. I wont get too surprised if this starts showing up on facebook in the next few weeks.

    And in the end, we will all end up jackin' it (in San Diego).

    Yes you did. I'm proud of you! I'm at day 8 or 9 without fapping, 12 or so without porn.

    I'm on day 4 and this is a little bit hard. I keep trying to rationalize it to myself and think up reasons why it's bullshit and i should just fap, but I agreed to give this thing a chance, so i'm going to do a full 60 days before I denounce it as a load of wank (pun intended)

    some tips for everyone, im on day 3, but the most ive ever been is 6 weeks.

    make sure you occupy your time. if your day consists of 12 hours on the computer or something, you are going to find this VERY HARD (BONER PUN MOST DEFINITELY INTENDED) Take up a hobby, call up some friends, make sure you occupy your time with something.

    secondly, browse this thread, and yourbrainonporn.com regularly. its very easy to forget why your doing this over the long term.

    Giant 300+ page thread on this whole subject

    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...8995133&page=1

    also get an internet censor/blocker and put a password on it you wont remember.



    Note:
    If you feel the urge, immediately shut off the computer, do some pushups, go for a run or do something else. The worst thing you can do is say "oh ill browse a few pics or something its fine" because then youll get horny and when your in that state you wont be thinking rationally and itll be heaps easy to give up there and then.

    Also, if anyone doubts that this works, think about it. If you're constantly making your brain release large amounts of dopamine, your dopamine receptors are going to numb eventually because theyre used to getting a constant fix of dopamine. This means you arent going to feel as good as you do normally. Come to think of it its pretty much analogous to drug addiction in the neurochemical sense, only its not nearly as bad.





    Finally, try not to count this in days. I'll admit, the first couple of weeks are going to feel like a year, but after that it gets a whole lot easier, and you start to feel a whole lot better. But don't try to think "im on day 5 im on day 5 im on day 5 HURRY UP AND END ALREADY DAY 5" just try to think that you've just given up porn/fapping, and thats that.

    My dick has been going up and down like a yoyo all day and, as you all know, being unable to adjust your dick's position during a serious boner is the most uncomfortable thing ever.
