    Had a really strong urge this morning to have an immense explosive **** where I just spunked all over myself and laid in the jizz like the repulsive sexual deviant I am. I resisted the temptation though. Press ups this evening, big gym sesh tomorrow. Come at (inside) me bros.
    Haha cracked me up.

    I relapsed after 37 days. Once you relapse it’s so hard to get on a long streak again, your brain will rationalize ”one more time, then we’ll start over again – hey, what does it matter, you only got 3 days…”Had to reset again yesterday. Read something in this book I’m reading about neurology that changed everything. I suddenly realized NoFap is serious, dead serious. Check this out.
    A scientist mapped the brain of a Silver Spring monkey. He did this by opening the brain up and stimulated the monkey’s thumb, then analyzed where in the brain neurons fired for the thumb. He did this for the pointer, middle finger and so on. His findings were remarkable at the time: he found that the neurons that fired when the thumb was stroked was right next to the neurons that fired for the index, which was next to the ones that fired for the middle finger and so on. They were aligned.
    Next they sewed the index and middle finger together on the monkey (quite cruel actually) and waited for two months. Then they opened the brain up again. They stroked the thumb and saw the neurons fire at the same place as before. Now they stroked the index finger, which had been connected to the middle finger for two months, and they were amazed to find that the brain had reorganized itself, so that there where there used to be two separate neuron maps for the index- and middle-finger, there were now just one big map.
    Neurons that fire together wire together! Some professional guitarists also experience this when they get something called focal dystonia when they can’t move two fingers separately, only as one unit. When neurons fire together they also wire together.
    This means that if you watch porn, which more often than not have dominating, humiliating, degrading and violent themes - you not only experience sex and violence together – you rewire your brain and change the neuron structure each time so sex and violence wire together in your brain. No wonder a lot of NoFappers here testifies that they experience ED (which to be blunt is euphemism for impotence).
    When we watch porn we not only experience it, we rewire our brain. Each time we watch porn we strengthen this connection. Each time we ejaculate dopamine is flushed into these connections, further wiring them together, acting as “glue” since pleasant experiences get wired more easily.
    Getting hard when in a normal relationship with a girl will be just as impossible as for the monkey to use his fingers individually. If after two months the monkeys fingers had merged into one neuron map, what do you think years and decades of porn will do to your brain? Without the pornographic themes you won’t get hard. Fortunately you can unlearn these behaviors and change the neuron maps back, this is what NoFap does – we all have to realize this is dead serious.

    The day before yesterday was the last time I ever watched porn.

    Don't feel bad, pick yourself up. Do some crunches or pressups. Do the exercise until you feel a change in the muscle and before the point of straining.

    Has anyone else found that ever since abstaining their memory has improved? I think I almost have photographic memory now I swear, I just look at a diagram or a block of text for a few seconds and I can copy it out almost word for word. I don't know, is this some sort of placebo effect?

    You guys realise the reason why you feel more confident is cause of the placebo effect? Scientifically nothing is happening to you to make you more confident. You just want to believe that it's making a difference and so it does make a difference.

    Hot, gave me a boner. But tbh I've already watched full on porn the past few days and not have a bash so this won't make me whack one.

    I'd guess that either this was a latent ability you didn't know you had, or it's a kind of placebo where you just feel that you're better at it (and maybe this belief improves your ability at it by a certain amount). It seems unlikely to me that it'd be a natural consequence of not jacking it for a few days.

    Its definitely placebo.
