    it just does, try it out. there is no scientific evidence as far as I know, no logical reason etc. but 99% of noporn/nofap people have noticed positives after a few weeks of abstinence
    There is empirical evidence for no porn now. And there was scientific logical reason even before, do you not read my posts Areeb :'(

    I meant for the self-esteem, better talking to women side of things etc. There isn't evidence for this right?

    Yeah there is. Your reward system definitely effects your self esteem, confidence etc. There's no study that says "no porn leads to better confidence" but you can put 2 and 2 together.

    However I am inclined to say no fap, without any history of porn use, isn't all that. But it depends on the person.

    Hey guys

    I know it doesn't sound like much but i haven't fapped for 4 days. This is coming from a guy who used to spend at least an hour looking for that perfect video

    I know its going to get harder but i hope i can change and inspire anyone who wants to have a drive in their life.


    So far i haven't noticed a big difference but i am smiling more when isee girls and that caught a few eyes or two

    Work productivity we will have to see

    i am anticipating its going to get worse in the enxt 2 weeks

    I stumbled upon this thread about 2 and a half weeks ago. Thought it sounded interesting and that I'd give it a go.

    Today when I was handing out flyers, for the first time in my life, a girl just came up to me completely out of the blue and gave me her number!
    This has never happened before unless I've been in a club or something but that doesn't really count.

    I swear this must be some kind of ancient mind trick or something!
    I really am feeling possibly the best I've felt in a long time. My confidence is high, anxiety at an all time low...

    Thank you TSR!!!

    I don't know whether it's to do with pheromones or just self confidence, perhaps when you see a girl not looking sheepish as guys who knock one out while looking at porn or thinking about degrading images of women might do. Whatever, it worked - so congratulations!

    I've just seen this thread and trust me it works! I stopped "fapping" a long time ago and it works magic! It's true about the dopamine and how, when you're in a relationship you will not get a hard on due to erectile dysfunction

    OP is a legend

    Carol Vorderman? If anything, surely that would help with not fapping?

    and she said yes, I'm guessing?

    nice one man.

    my social skills have improved a ton, made some jokes in dissection and the girls in my group are easier to talk to now. One girl came up to me when leaving lectures to initiate a conversation with me (doesn't sound like much but a big achievement for me).
    How does not fapping suddenly make you better at getting girls? This seems like bull to me. I **** everyday to porn, and I'm really confident and usually have a girlfriend, and I'm really popular with the ladies, and they literally throw themselves at me. So I don't see the correlation, but please enlighten me.

    You have a balance but for those who only know fapping, it's different.

    I've never seen a point in this. Just seems like a placebo effect most of the time.

    I can understand no porn, and maybe if you fap everyday you might want to cut down but.....

    Hello everyone

    I don't condone abstaining from masturbation, however I thought some of you would be interested in this http://m.psychologytoday.com/blog/cu...ating-too-much not sure if anyone has seen it before

    It might give some pause for thought to those people who feel they watch(ed) too much porn, might explain some of the positive side effects of cutting back.

    Obviously this is mainly speculation based on what's already known, and what can't reliably be tested.
