Welcome to Version 2 of **NO FAP Thread to end ALL No Fap threads**. Thread one which was created by Preparation changed a lot of lives, got featured on Psychology Today (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/...orn-experiment
), and through 8000+ posts allowed us to gain tons of new knowledge and spread it to others. Hopefully this thread builds upon the foundation laid by the first thread and continuous to inspire people to become the person they have always wanted to be.
For those completely new to this, PLEASE read everything in here first before asking questions. I compiled a plethora of information on No Fap, from both the previous threads, peoples personal accounts, books and other websites.
NO PORN, NO EDGING (stroking it without cumming), **** BISHES, and the obvious, NO FAP!

Quick summary of the most frequently addressed points
- No fap has more to do with the dopamine rather than "test boosting". There is no strong evidence of long term no fap having a effect on testosterone. Rather the main benefit of no fap is you preventing our brain from getting a dose of dopamine everytime you fap. This increases the levels of another hormone that motivates you to actually do stuff, while fapping makes you want to do less after the dopamine spike. In general many no fappers generally feel more euphoric and happy since the dopamine receptors are not dulled out, and more motivated since their bodies crave the dopamine more, and seek it out through other means (real girls, friends, working out, accomplishing things) in short NO FAP = MOTIVATION TO IMPROVE LIFE
- DO NOT EDGE OR WATCH PORN. Not only will you fail but you are still stimulating your brain
- Sex is fine
- It is not a linear process, you will not be 5 times hornier on day 15 than you are on day 3. Most generally get really horny around day three, and it stays that way up to around day 12-20. Many experience mood swings, get emotial etc, and also a flat line stage afterwards (not horny at all)
- Channel your energy into productive things, dont dwell upon being sexually frustrated, use the frustration energy instead to do producing things to better yourself and feel better. BECOME THE PERSON YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE.
