    I was wondering, you said 'On the 7th day of no fapping, your testosterone can spike by up to 145%'
    Do we have to go through this cycle every week or is it only the first week of no fapping and then testosterone levels stabilise after?

    It wasn't me who actually wrote that, but I'll answer anyway from experience.

    Whilst it is true that after only the first week of no fapping, test and libido increase greatly, this doesn't mean that such levels will then decrease thereafter. Indeed, they may continue increase. From experience, they actually did greatly increase with regular periods where I was actually quite manic with so much energy, motivation and whatnot.

    But over the course of time, test is bound to be stable, although increased - depending on how you play it (if you just don't do much, it might actually decrease - say, if you're depressed or something). But if you're exercising and constantly oogling girls in real-life, it's bound to rocket up regularly, leaving you in a grand state of manliness!

    That's too bad. As per the rules, this is your final chance, as I've had no input from other participants about how many restart attempts one should be allowed.

    how did that go? The longest I've gone is like 4 weeks and I didn't struggle apart from on 2 occasions. I think I can go at least 90 days. I'm just not looking forward to day 7/8 which was one of the hard days...

    Hang in there - just stay with the group!

    Not doing too bad - really it's just down there that's currently excited; so not really a cerebral feeling of horniness (if you catch my drift), more just down there.

    I am breezing through work though as personal morale is especially high because of this.

    Also, I do find it interesting that many look on it as "oh, it's a year" and then get scared - looking at it like that will make it much easier to fail as your brain almost gets *depressed* (not exactly, but something close to it) that it's not going to get rewarded with its habitual pleasurable activity. I had this type of feeling a couple of nights ago where I was at the store and there were lots of my favourite sugary and chocolatey snacks (I'm staying away from the for the year) and I was about to relent and put them in the basket until I said no and walked away and there was an almost depressed-like feeling thereafter, but I was quick to dispel (only lasted a couple of minutes). So, keeping steadfast does work and ultimately that *depressed* feeling should only be temporary as you should get other activities that act as a reward.

    No, it doesn't. However, for people with partners who aren't in a LDR, it'll surely be p1ss-easy unless you're both abstaining or something. So, essentially, you'll be going for a week without any release, whilst we single guys will be going for a year without (unless of course we get a partner) - do you see what I'm saying?

    You're able to go longer, trust me. If I can manager four months of high libido (and many people have gone longer), anybody can!

    Well I am setting split up goals but I imagine I can go longer without much struggle. It really takes a big hit on your system when you stop for the first day I notice - like 36 hours no faps feels like a carcrash but not a hormonal one but a system shock. Ah well, I've gone almost 4 days w/o a single issue so whatevs :woo:

    Yeah I think at least hope so, the first week will be the hardest I think then it will just become the norm
