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.
It feels like everyone on facepunch is in on this
Put me on that list
Let's fucking do this
Count me in. I don't know how long I can keep it up, but whatever. I guess everyone has to grow up sometime, right?
Does looking at pornography/pornographic art without fapping have an adverse effect on this?
What about nudity/sex scenes in movies?
Well I guess if it doesn't even give me a boner it should be fine
count me in, i need this
Going strong. Sign me up.
I have nothing to lose. Sign me up!
Jesus, it's only been two days. It feels like months :(
I'm realizing I was more addicted than I originally thought
Count me in, let's do this.
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.
I think maybe the list of successes / failures should have a "light beer" section for people that fapped, just not to porn.
Cause not fapping full stop is a lot harder than not fapping to porn.
Going to be serious as from tomorrow, Fridays are a nice day to start off on.
need to stop being such a horny loser. count me in
Add me on that damn list... I'm in.
Sign me up!
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).
Day two isn't the hardest, day three is when shit and jizz hit the fan.
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)
I want to try it, just to prove myself that I can change part of my daily life.
Okay, just deleted all my porn. Now I got a bit more free space on my second HDD.
Atleast, my mood is not going up and down like my penis yesterday.
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
also get an internet censor/blocker and put a password on it you wont remember.
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.
Count me in.
only 4 days has gone since last, feels like a fucking eternity
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.
