    I do love how I [FAILED!] despite only ever saying I might do it for a couple of weeks and then decided against it. :rolleyes:
    No, SirMasterKey, you were added and then you failed shortly after. If you have any willpower, I have elfin ears... which I don't :pierre:

    You guys do realise that any increase in sexual or social confidence is because you're approaching the desperation line, right? 'Hi! **** MEEEEE! DO IT! COME OUT TO THIS ALLEY AND **** MEEEEE!'

    I really would not like to be approached by a guy who was chatting me up because he had an unhealthy guilt complex about his weener and wanted to use me as a method of relief instead.

    Plus if the aim is to increase in sexual confidence, I find it very unconvincing when you guys imply you're abstaining for some kind of 'wholesome' (and presumably religiously acceptable) results.

    Can't believe you're demanding proof that ****ing isn't unhealthy when you haven't given any to suggest it's unhealthy or that abstaining is actually healthy. Note: The Bible is not acceptable as evidence.

    Sign me up! I'm a girl, but the fenale thread is...lacking to say the least. I'm aiming to abstain because I have a feeling watching porn recently has had a negative effect on me and also want to focus my energies on other things, get a boyfriend etc.
    Glad to have you on board! Added!

    It's a test of willpower, so involuntary ejaculation is OK.
    Indeed, that is correct. :yes:

    Re-Start - 06/01/2013 01:31 (Is it possible to re-start?)

    I am going to say that I think I have an addiction and is the reason why I signed up to this. It has been going on now for the last couple of years at least. The first I told someone about this was when I went to a counsellor to seek help last summer and I thought I had got better, however it was temporary. This was whilst I was abroad and was due to go to another country for work, although my counsellor felt I was getting better as well and so stopped the sessions.

    My problem is that I am now using masturbation as a drug to fall asleep whenever I have difficulty. When this happens, I feel as though I have no control over myself. It is most probably in my mind though. Then I spend the rest of the day tired, depressed, sleeping during the day and not wanting to do any work and I am currently risking the final year of my degree. I really want to focus my energies towards other activities and will hopefully be able to with the support of this thread.

    My plan is to use this thread as a support network, although I know it is in the Chat forum and not Health or something similar. Any tips and suggestions welcome. Thanks.
    Ah, disappointing. But, I'll now need to add a new rule about "restarting" as I missed that out - (probably something like "Only one more restarting allowed, and only if that restarting is within a 15 day window; i.e. you fail on the 6th and restart before 21st of that month).

    If there were unlimited restart tries then, it'd be too easy. However, maybe as many are beginners, there should be more than one restart attempts? Any contributions, guys?

    So you only have one more shot - I'll put you down as restarting today!

    (Original post by RadioHawk)
    I failed round 4am
    Couldnt sleep...
    Sorry
    Thought i could do better
    I'll go for a restart if possible and some sleeping pills
    That's too bad. See my reply to the quote above - I'm currently deliberating on "restart attempts".

    Tell me when you're restarting!

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    If you say try you've already said you may not be able to do it and are setting yourself up for a fall.
    That's spot on. I'm not trying to do this - I am doing this!

    Oh great, we've got another one who has misunderstood greatly. I'm not even religious or doing this for religious reasons. And the only reason I'm doing this is not only for sexual confidence. Once again, I am not saying that tugging is harmful, rather that abstaining from it and redirecting energies produces many, many benefits (that is, if you play it right).

    This is not oppressive abstinence - rather it is a positive redirection of energies into worthwhile pursuits and a great exercising of self-control. If people didn't think that there weren't any benefits, we wouldn't have more than 70 people signing up and counting!

    You can link to an article if you like. I'm just not going to watch a 15 minute TED talk when i've been directed there by a Miranda fan. It's just a principle. I can see how watching her is conducive to not masturbating though. And 5 As in your AS levels? Holy crap!!! lol....
    Yes, that's logical, because I'm going to be a complete idiot if I watch a particular TV show. :rolleyes:

    And I'm gay, anyway. :pierre:

    No, Sovr'gnChancellor.

    Can you prove that:

    i) I've actually physically failed?
    ii) I actually fully started after I only ever said might.

    This is slightly pathetic if truth be told. Why I decided that actually whilst I'll try and stop masturbating as frequently as I do, I won't fully abstain.

    Not a complete idiot, it just shows poor judgment and taste. If anything being gay makes you more likely to fap to Miranda

    But your post directly implied that you wanted to be added on the list. Once added on the list, if you come seconds later and say that you don't want to take part anymore, you're deemed as failed unfortunately.

    Of course I can't prove that anybody's actually physically failed or not - I just have to take their word for it.

    Okay, look, if you can find our post exchanges regarding you wanting to join and post them to me, I'll review the situation and I'll come back to you with my decision. Maybe I can overturn the previous decision. But just be aware that I can't just go about overturning decisions every time, otherwise there'll be poor enforcement.

    Waiting to hear from you,

    Well prior to 01/01/2013, I was doing it quite a bit. I've been doing it quite a bit since starting uni (Sept 2011). Before uni, I did actually do some abstaining (so, the odd month of abstinence) and my longest time was nearly 4 months. However, all of that was prior to uni. During uni, the longest I've gone without was around 15/16 days.

    But yes, I have been doing it quite a lot in 2012, especially in summer. Too much in short periods of time. Luckily, I try to "tug it all out" in the days leading up to New Year's Day to overdo it, so that I forcibly made myself grow tired and bored of it.

    Well what shows do you like? I could say that you have "poor judgement and taste" (and "judgement" has an E in it, by the way).

    She's a woman. I like men. There's a difference.

    Surely if it does approach that point a wet dream should bring it back to the normal line?

    The harsh reality is in many clubs are lot of men and women for that matter are there because they want a quick ons. And before you jump I said many clubs instead of all and a lot instead of all men and women for a reason.

    It's nothing to do with religion.

    Nobody is demanding any proof for anything. I don't understand how religion even comes into this.
