    Make sure you keep the thoughts of *why* you're not fapping clear in your mind.

    As has already been said, the first 2 weeks are the hardest. Its plain sailing after that.

    Going "Cold Turkey" is the only way you can do it so it's gunna hurt in a way.

    Sorry about that bro, we're all gonna make it.

    Yeah I am just doing it for Discipline and More Energy.

    1. Better Grades
    2. More girls in real life.

    That's what I hope from this. Err I can finally do work on my Computer at Home Alone now without any urges to do anything else.

    Let's do this guys.
    I think you're a better person for it at the end of the day.

    Seeing your sexual desires and urges as something you are in control of and not the other way around.
    Being able to focus and do your own thing whilst being surrounded by girls and women, taking control of your life in a way and doing something that can help you fulfill your potential without letting a basic carnal desire get in the way.
    If you're ever free of it (and I'm not yet how many months on) I think you're so much better off for it.

    Noooo Reset again.

    Kk. I will have to keep asking myself. The thing is the method you just said can be used for my revision, need to keep asking myself all the time why I am not working etc etc

    14th April. Kk I will report back in exactly 2 weeks hopefully successful 28th April.

    Sorry to hear that bro, I had a lot of failures until I had a little incident in my life that pushed me over the edge and I don't do it since then.

    First 2 weeks will be hard, try and focus your energies elsewhere. Work and fitness seem to be two common vents where you can put your extra energy and spirit.

    What kind of awful ****ing person would you have to be for abstinence from masturbation to be something that improved you?

    You'd have to be useless. Completely ****ing useless.

    And if you're not getting laid regularly, then you're not better off for it. Regular ejaculation is good for your health.

    Read that. You are uneducated and are throwing insults as if you have are a Phd Graduate doing a Thesis on this from Oxford or Cambridge which you are clearly not by your vulgar and repugnant behavior on a public forum.

    Yes alot of the claims and benefits may be correctly deemed as Pseudoscience, but what is not Pseudoscience is the Psychological Benefit one may take from doing it.

    For me I hope this translates to other aspects of my life. I can assure you I am by no means "useless" by societies standards.

    Yeah so did I, I've only gone for a Max of 5 days, but my Sex-Drive has gone up quite alot, during those times, and I was able to be really productive with my work, so I'm going to keep this up.

    Let's start again today and try to go until the 28th.

    The guy said from his experience the first 2 weeks are hard. So let's do 2 weeks.

    Who, like myself, is embarking on this great and challenging journey? :proud:

    I began on 01/01/2013 00:00.

    If you too began then, then all the better for a full 2013! However, if you still want to take part, by all means begin now! Be a man! (Sorry, no women allowed EDIT: Actually, females may join, if you can convince me that you'll actually be able to procure benefits from abstaining, much like males do)!

    RULES:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    - No touching whatsoever (except for clear and non-sexual reasons/purposes - e.g. shower etc).

    - No stroking whatsoever.

    - No auto-fellatio whatsoever (who in the hell can do that anyway? :lolwut: )

    - No porn whatsoever (however, this is a bonus rule - but it makes sense to abstain from this also).

    - No ejaculation (unless with another person, then this challenge clearly wouldn't matter to you, unless of course, you wanted to abstain from solo sexual activities in order to be more potent and virile for mutual sexual encounters :ahee: ).

    - Notify the thread/OP if you fail, stating the date of failure.- The rule about restarting is.....
    {I'm currently waiting on input from participants about this one. So far, I'm thinking that there should only be one restarting attempt allowed in the whole year and it must be within a 15 day window from the point of failure. However, as many are beginners, this may be too harsh? Interested in any contributions...}


    Just enjoy your horniness lads and let that productivity, motivation and confidence rocket up and see your positive social interaction and confidence with girls exponentially increase!

    So, who's in?
    I'll gladly put your name down and we can post here, as we're all in this together (not in the "Call me dave" manner). Also, if you fail (or, indeed, are in danger of failing), post here to notify (where you will be named and shamed )/for some support. Also, (even though I've now mentioned it too late), state the date on which you began.

    Why do this? Here's a good explanation, courtesy of our respected user "RichyFrench" :congrats: :

    :congrats: **Current participants**: :congrats:

    [If you asked me to add you and you don't see your name there yet, don't worry. I'm probably just dealing with the backlog of new participants and I'll have you added as soon as possible!]

    (P.S. This isn't just pure abstinence; it's a complete redirection of energies. This means - be a bit more daring, heroic, do more sports, go out more, socialise more and more with females or males and increase confidence and dominance.)

    (P.P.S. Personally, I am trying to do several willpower challenges. Apart from no fapping [also, trying no ejaculating], I'm also doing no fast foods/direct sugary foods for the year. It's always nice to try new things and experience alternative modes of living and depriving yourself in pleasures - it's a different way of experiencing existence.)

    Some Tips from Sovr'gnChancellor£:

    (To be added to regularly and frequently)

    -If you feel like you're going crazy and can't think of anything else or divert your attention to study or a task at hand, do something crazy/spontaneous. Dance spontaneously to some expressive and exciting music. Go out for a quick run. Just release some of that pent-up energy so that you can focus on tasks at hand or whatever.


    - Also, for those of you who started on 1st Jan, tomorrow will be really difficult. On the 7th day of no fapping, your testosterone can spike by up to 145% so you may REALLY have the urge to fap. On day 8 though it starts to drop back down again to near normal levels, so it's a case of gritting your teeth for a bit and just riding out the storm. (Credit goes to "RichyFrench")

    Here is another piece of useful advice for our participants, this time from a fellow esteemed participant ("0906079" :congrats: ):

    Spoiler:
    Show




    PERSONAL EXPERIENCES WITH NO TUGGING/PORN/NO RELEASE:



    TESTIMONIES FROM PARTICIPANTS:

    (Updated regularly)



    NOTE:

    There are two modes to this challenge, with one being 'harder' than the other -
    Spoiler:
    Show


    - On the one hand, we have the 'EASY' mode, whereby, you must completely refrain from any solo pleasure whatsoever for the rest of the year but you are able to engage in mutual sexual relations with another.


    - On the other hand, we have the 'HARD' mode (which is more challenging than the former), whereby you not only completely refrain from any solo pleasure, but you also completely abstain from any sexual release whatsoever for the rest of the year.


    In any case, most participants will be in the 'EASY' mode, as the challenge itself may be a means to court for partners amongst other things.

    Feel any different? More masculine, better motivation, less tired etc?
    The most change one will find will be between day 1 and day 20. After day 20, it just becomes something that one no longer has to think about, and then suddenly one has stopped for 30 days, then 40, then suddenly day 100 creeps up. After a while, one will not notice it. It will be right at the back of one's mind, with no urges.

    As for these "increased masculinity" or "increased motivation", it does play its part. One will find that this does not change much after day 20 (though, I daresay it will be different between one person and the next), it is more just keeping up what you have gained.

    I've restarted on 13/04/2013.

    The first seven days I did not think about it at all, which was quite different from all my previous attempts which were a struggle. It did not cross my mind.

    However, I feel the urge this morning (day 8). Trying to keep my mind off it. Better do some studying.

    How you guys doing? I started in (Xmarksthesh0t (Began 01/01/2010)) and I am still going strong, well I may started before 2010 lol but I started then. Anyone done this for a while without repetitive restarting- MY ADVICE- Control you mind, don't let it control you.
