    I'm still not in the op but I posted yesterday to say I'm in

    This was posted from The Student Room's Android App on my HTC
    My mistake. Must have been an oversight. There's still a backlog, but I'll have you added in a jiffy!

    Please do not post such images. When I browse this thread, I wish to gain motivation for this initiative. I am sure that others wish to as well. Posting an image like that will surely be detrimental to us.

    Please do not try to sabotage our attempts.

    Thank you.

    If it is felt that the number of complaints against your type of posts are increasing and becoming significant, I might have to request that you tone it down or stop altogether (depending on if the number of complaints are in a majority or minority).

    What benefit do you gain from willingly ruining another person's chance of improving themself? Don't you think that it is rather cruel of you to do that?

    And how could you do that if I am not violating the rules of TSR?

    Quick question if no-one minds ~
    Just how much of an impact does not masturbating have on you guys? Ages ago there was a competition like this at 6th Form but I don't think any of the guys involved made it past two weeks, or so, and for the little time they managed it, 'tetchy' didn't even begin to cover it.
    Is it really that difficult for you? And on a scale of 1 to 10, how hard do you find it to resist?

    (I'm a girl, in case you can't tell already :eek: ) Clearly our urges aren't quite as potent as yours
    I couldn't put a number on it since it varies according to available stimuli... But, I've tried to go a week before and it was hellish. I once went on a camping trip and being that we shared tents I couldn't bash one out for over a week and a half, so I had to do it in the shower. It was a glorious moment.

    I don't currently know how I'll be able to go without for a year, but I expect that it will get easier. I don't think I'm all that unusual in that if I'm alone and I see a beautiful person on television, I'm masturbatorially-spurred.

    My only reason to do this is to prove to myself that I can despite its absurd difficulty and arbitrary value; I've never considering the amount that I masturbate to have been a negative thing, and my porn habits have been relatively tame (though frequent). I can only imagine how difficult it must be for someone who is legitimately addicted.

    You need to understand the brain and its reward system to understand what I'm saying. Orgasm results in a huge release of pleasure chemicals (which are finite and need to be replenished, not infinite, much like lifespan). And so, pleasure from other activities that do not involved tugging is greatly reduced. Trust me, I've been there. When I've stopped tugging for a long period of time, I even get greatly interested in academics and whatnot (this was what occurred during that near 4 months period during A2). When not tugging, neurotransmitter and chemical levels in the body and brain are stable and there is a higher abundance of those chemicals like dopamine and whatnot, which afford better mental states and motivation and energy and whatnot. You start to appreciate the little things in life.
    What if you get laid everyday? According to you, that should be bad then. Remember its not the actual tugging part that's bad, its the actual ejaculation part that is bad. And going by that, your paragraph is bull****. Lets be honest here, you wouldn't tell a guy that gets some everyday that what he's doing is unhealthy, only someone tugging it everyday. I wonder why...

    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)!

    So, rules are as follows:

    - 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!

    (P.S. At the time of writing, I am proud to say that today will be day 5 )

    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.

    Current participants:

    [EDIT: This list is really growing, guys - keep 'em coming!]
    [EDIT2: Wow, I have to say that the rapid rate in which this list is increasing and the more people we're getting on board, is greatly increasing motivation! Nice work!]
    [EDIT3: Wow, this OP was half its size a few hours ago! Keep on joining guys - it's not too late yet!]
    [Also, 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£:

    (Too 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. 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.
