Two years ago today, /nofap/ was founded on the grounds that 2015 should be a nofap year. 2015 came and went, and now so has 2016.

Once again, we've all made great strides. Maybe you didn't make it the whole year. In fact, you probably didn't. If you did, you are the official king of /nofap/. If not, no sweat. Consider this: In a normal year you might have fapped once or more every day. That's at least 365 faps. Maybe in the past year you only fapped once every other day, or on and off every couple days, or something like that. That's not some big huge impressive streak, but that does cut 365 down to 182, which is pretty fucken good. When you think back on the past /nofap/ year, judge it in those terms.

That said, it's a new year, which means we all have the opportunity here to make it a completely clean /nofap/ year with a big huge impressive streak, which may not be necessary to mark improvement, but would still be fucking awesome to get. Get started now, because starting isn't gonna get easier the longer you wait. All you have to do is nothing, and believe that you're gonna make it. And remember that nofap isn't the only thing you can do to make your life better. Eat right, lift, read books, don't spend every second of your life shitposting. 2017 will be a great year.

Welcome to /nofap/

This board is for the discussion of nofap, noporn, and the societal implications of fapping and porn.

RULES

http://8ch.net/nofap/rules.html

>1. Stay on topic. The topic is pretty loosely defined here so use some common sense.

>2. Don't post porn. NSFW images will be deleted. Posting NSFW material as a shitty troll attempt will result in a comically long ban. This board is SFW, so keep it that way.

>3. Non-/nofap/pers are welcome to come and question the premise of nofap and to argue against nofap. That said, shitposts, flames, bait, spam, and trolls are not allowed and such threads will be locked or deleted.

Just those three.

And because I don't want to clutter the board with excess stickies:

ITT: dump /nofap/ infographs, videos, links, banners and other such things

EDIT: Adding the IRC to this thread because it doesn't need its own sticky.

OFFICIAL /nofap/ IRC CHANNEL

#nofap on Rizon

For anyone who doesn't know how to access IRC, just click on the following link and it should become pretty apparent:

https://qchat.rizon.net/?channels=nofap

Rules are basically the same as here only it's going to be less strict on staying on-topic. Though copious funposting will be encouraged, we'll also be able to have real-time serious discussions if we want to. Maybe even work out a little fappers anonymous session.

Oh, and we've got Trivia and UNObot for sick nasty fun times. Happy IRCing.

I know this is an old post but we have had civilization for a very long time. Certainly we have clothed ourselves for tens of thousands of years. I suppose it could be an adaptation made during that time. The more extravagant the clothing, the higher the status of the male. It applies to females too I'd assume.

I want this thread to be containing of a small group of no fappers to post their everyday challenges.

We know that group sessions are popular in all kind of rehabilitaion efforts, so lets start one here.

Everyone gives himself a nickname and will write a small report on how he is feeling and what day he is at.

I hope this thread will get about 3-10 anons, who actively post here.

I just wanted to share with you that fapping to porn (relapsing) makes me want to literally break down and cry for hours afterwards, and it makes me energy-less and depressed for days.

Granted, I only relapse once or twice a week, but I think I have to quit fapping and porn forever, it's literally killing me very slowly.

Anyway, this is a support group so I just wanted to share my experience.

day 22

The day is almost over, and i have passed it without trouble.

I'm losing my feeling of amazement at seeing how far i have come. being on day 22 isn't as exiting as being on day 12 or 16, its becoming something in the background. Or more accurately, just one of the many addictions i'm combating right now in an effort to chance my life around.

It's pretty noticeable in my previous post, the longer this went on, the less i talked about NoFap, and the more i'm talking about the other self improvement projects i'm undertaking, like trying to do something productive everyday. In comparison with those other things, NoFap isn't all that demanding, in comparison to those other projects, NoFap is something that you DONT DO, instead of something THAT YOU DO.

Of course, it isn't that i think i'm cured or anything, i am well aware i'm not out of the danger zone, and i have been tested on that multiple times when i accidentally came across NSFW pics on 8chan. I mean this more in the sence, that i'm more busy and occupied by those other projects, than that i am with NoFap.

So i'm debating with myself if i should continue to post all this here.

On one side, this is becoming a E-diary under a name, with almost minimal NoFap talk. If this is the case, i could just as well do it on paper for myself.

On the other side, by writing on here i force myself to come here at least once a day, minimalising my chace of relapse, and i am accountable to the readers. If i want to slack or relapse, i would also need to write that on here, making this a prime motivator for my self improvement.

REALLY MAKES YOU THINK.

How i feel: I have have had my urge to fap under control till now, my urge to slack for slightly less long. And i'm also becoming aware i need to improve my diet. If you look at it in philosophical or religious terms, you could say i'm struggling with sloth, lust and now glutony,Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I am eighteen days into my streak and Its the furthest I've gotten without aid of some strange circumstances like a camping trip. Its hard as fuck honestly and to help vent some of my frustrations I might as well post here. so here it goes.

emotional: I am typically an easily stressed and anxious person and I have noticed a change. I can be confidant in myself for a little bit at a time now which is good but my anxiety only doubles when it comes back so I guess it will get better hopefully.

Physically: I have more energy overall which is pretty good especially since I am trying to get into shape. Its nice to have more energy that I can pour into personal endeavors.

Temptation: Temptation is at an all time high. I get the urge to release but I know it wont get worse and I feel obligated to hold myself to nofap. So its a vicious cycle that end with me hating myself in any quiet moment I get. Hopefully I get better

OP here and I might actually be on time today.

Emotional: I feel the same as usual. I didn't do much today I only got out for a few hours around mid-day and went back to bed. I ended up having a few half conscious fantasies about the girl from class I have talked about in the past I am worrying that I am screwing myself over by thinking about her when I'm at vulnerable states like half asleep or late at night. bit I will get into that more in temptation. while I was half asleep I remembered my old porn habits and some memories. I think that playing a game I got recently triggered it I though that I was far past that degeneracy and it discourage me a bit that I still have that shit in my life but I wont forget my past if I go back. All I can do now is move forwards and learn to cope with what damage I've done to myself. didn't relapse in fact my past degeneracy is what got me to get out of bed. Whats worse is I cant leave these thoughts behind when I think back I have seen glimpses of my degeneracy in my fantasies about lets call her Jen for the sake of this accountability thread.

I just swat myself on the hand before I could really let my degeneracy take full form. I don't know what to do other than to continue avoiding porn and my risky thoughts when I can so I guess I need to do that better.

Physical: I got my alarm clock working so I am going to be waking up at five or so in the morning if my alarm clock has anything to say about it. This should reduce time spent under the sheets which is a dangerous place I'm quickly learning. I did my exercise just after getting out of bed this afternoon it helps with the thoughts and well its a nice outlet. I hear some rain coming in so I might not be able to run but I will still find a substitute. I do hope the rain stops in the early morning so I can still have puddles and mist but no actual rain.

Temptation: I need to either sleep more or less because I am losing control of my thoughts in between sleep and being awake. I fantasize about Jen which brings back memories of my degenerate porn I left behinds and then I'm left angry at myself and I have to get up and do something anything to get a clear mind back. I need to watch out because lets forget the fact that I promised myself Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

OP here

Physical: I haven't done exercise but I noticed my acne is coming back but it isn't as horrible as before and it inst all on my back which is nice. I cant think of much else to note. I went on a walk today in the early morning and slept all day. I didn't have any thoughts about Jen or anything else I just woke up.

Emotional: I felt pretty good today I didn't have much in the way of stress I guess the reason I didn't feel stressed is because I'm avoiding what should make me stressed. I have assignments due that I am putting off I really should get to work on those I'll have them done by 12:45. I haven't thought about Jen too much after yesterday when I had to set myself straight. This is a relief in all honesty.

Temptation: as previously mentioned I haven't thought about Jen too much today as previously mentioned. I think this is a step in the right direction but I'm going back to class tomorrow an I'll see her ther so we'll see if this progress holds. I haven't really had any tempting moments today altogether.

Final thoughts: I should get my work done quickly so I can get to bed and wake up early. I hanet had muc happen today and that is good but I cant ease up because I had one easy day. I'll check intomorrow with my progress.

OP here I missed a day before so I'm posting for two days

(written on 1/18/17)

Emotional(yesterday): I had to work with a teammates frustrations on a project were working on. I managed to avoid getting her more mad while she calmed don so that is an improvement in the department of working with people.

Emotional: I was fine today nothing new since after I started nofap. I borrowed something from a friend of en for class and as we went off to our separate class from lunch I noticed stayed behind and looked at me weird before she left. Which for the class period kinda messed me up.

Physical (yesterday):I did some basic running during the dead time I have between class and project time. using the project time I burned myself on three separate fingers on my right hand at once. I passed out fairly soon after I got my schoolwork done.

Physical: The burn has not swollen up you can just see where the metal was on my hand and I cant feel things very well where I burned myself. I cant think of much else I know that I'm either staying up all night and bringing a monster with me to class or I'm going to bed withing the following hour. I gotta wake up at 6 and to be honest it might be more secure to stay up all night but I have a test so I need sleep.

Temptation(yesterday): there was not much in the way of temptation yesterday, nothing I can think of.

Temptation:I don't know why but during class as I was using the laptop Jen's friend loaned me I was just hit with a wave and I thought about relapsing then more seriously then than I have for the entirety of this streak. I was in class at the time so I am fine now. I dont know why it hit me then of all times but hey I know I'm not giving in any time anytime soon and if all goes as planned I'm never relapsing.

OP here and I really need to fix my posting times

I'll post another time today for Sunday

Emotional(1/20/17): I was fine of Friday emotionally. I guess I had some troubles being as confidant as I was when I started nofap when presenting. This is kinda expected. Nofap can only get you so far you know. I'm still better than where I was when I started but if I want to get better then I gotta put some work into it.

Emotional(1/21/17):I got up around mid-day and almost immediately I ha to go off to a competition for an old group I was part of. That being said I was running all over the place I wasnt just at the compitition so I was pretty busy and I didn't notice myself that much emotionally.

Physically(1/20/17):I didn't do any exercise on Friday.

Physically(1/21/17):I haven't done any real exercise for a while so I'm noticing that what little bulk I had from the exercise and the lopsided arm from years of jerking off is thinning out. I dont think that arm is ever going to be normal again which is a shame.

Temptation(1/20/17): My half awake dreams have gotten more extreme. I have started hugging and treating the pillows in my bed like how people would treat women inn their bed. Cuddling and the whole nine yards. I'm not proud of that but I guess it just goes to show that I'm getting pent up.

Temptation(1/21/17):The same thing from Friday continues usually when you I would get to this point I would have night emissions and I would be back to acting like a normal human. That hasent happened yet and I dont know when it will or if I should look forwards to that. Alot of the degenerate fantasies that would show up when I was half asleep I cant remember now.

Final Thoughts: I think I'm improving and its pretty big for me to make it this far. I have gotten to day 33 which is longer than any streak I've gotten before with or without aid of unusual circumstance. I want to make it through 2017 and then some but 2017 s the short term goal. To make it through 2017 I have to refine my habits though. I need to refine my hygiene, posting and work times, desires and expectations. I will post laPost too long.

I quit gaming and found that it helped, since I'm spending more time in other much more productive activities such as prayer and Bible reading/discussion.

If you live in a city you should begin going for walks, walk to places you've never been - head inner city and talk to strangers. Go and make new friends, help an old lady mow her lawn, buy a homeless person a meal and hear their story.

As a person living in a very remote area, I'd kill to be able to have all the options for activities that folks in the cities get - so seize them and use them to their fullest potential.

Because you're telling people to give up the one thing that holds them back from female contact. I'm not saying that fapping causes you to become some low-T autistic loser; but it gives you a very valid excuse to not find a mate. Fapping to porn is their ANTIDOTE for the one "problem" that they have: their sex drive. You can argue that this is our most important purpose in life (either religiously or evolutionary), to procreate. They're bypassing this and the punishment they get for it is a reduced sense of pleasure in everything (anhedonia), a dependency on porn, and perverse sexual fetishes.

I empathize with a lot of the problems that /r9k/-types have. I'm a kissless virgin, never had a gf, etc. And I know that finding a good woman nowadays is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I know this feeling of not wanting to give up porn because it will likely be the only sexual experience I'll experience. That, and it's fucking addicting. But I realize this, and giving up pornography is sort of my rage against the machine. I get angry thinking about the abuse that goes on in the pornography industry, I get angry thinking about whores, and I get angry thinking about myself having to numb the pain of >tfw no gf with fapping. A few years ago I would have probably told you I was looking forward to virtual reality and android waifus, but now it just makes me sick and angry to think about. People really are just abusing themselves with this.

>>3976

Short and sweet and correct all at once. Broscience and reddit have made nofap into internet veganism basically. I've read Your Brain on Porn and I can tell you that a lot of the broscience stuff in there is simply not true. There has to be a different stimulus at play when they get this big boost in energy, because I've done plenty (at least 4 or 5 separate) nofap months and not once did I experience a boost in confidence or a boost in energy like all the people who get it in like 2 or 3 weeks apparently. We should actually come together as a group here on 8chan and address this issue, maybe make our own Q&A based on what our experiences were with porn, and not reddit. I'd say on average most reddit users are norPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I think the whole broscience and general "miracles" happening after nofap streaks for some people is just some strong placebo effect. And in that sense this nofap pseudo-science isn't so bad (as long as it's not trying to be pushed as some kind of absolute truth).

I know I won't get the explosion of motivation and "power with women" that some report on reddit (which I barely browse) but I also know this nofap is for me a red line I can follow to the path of change. Even if I fail on other issues, this helps me keeping up with the will to move forward.

And nofap, as much as veganism or feminism or many other movements, had an interesting basis but a lot of people just went full retard with it because most people are fucking dumb and have a tendency to essentialize everything instead of being nuanced and careful about a certain vision on the world.

Nothing is either all black or all white, and I think that's what people into what we could call these sectarian thoughts (as "this particular thing cures everything and is the solution for everybody's misery") too often forget.

Yes, but it's paid membership. Also, some of the stills are hilarious. It's still porn, though.

>I think the whole broscience and general "miracles" happening after nofap streaks for some people is just some strong placebo effect

My post on anything being "just" placebo effect: http://8ch.net/nofap/res/1566.html#5610

Any kind of "strong placebo effect" would come from constantly thinking about the placebo. I never think about nofap, it just gives me the benefits and "miracles". When I break nofap after doing it for a long time I don't panic and I don't think about nofap that much, I still lose all of the benefits I had immediately and it takes a week to get them back. People that throw around the concept of a placebo effect typically don't understand the real world realities of how it works

>I know I won't get the explosion of motivation and "power with women" that some report on reddit

Everyone I get to do nofap gets the same benefits I do. I can believe that other lifestyle and health factors would prevent some people from benefiting from it. What's your longest streak?

Most of my relapses are when I'm trying to get to sleep or when I have nothing to do, how do I combat this?

So far I've only managed to get 2 days without a relapse, and it's fucking infuriating. Should I just not sleep?

 No.5675

Stop watching porn or doing/thinking anything that makes you fired up before going to bed. Try drinking some chamomile tea or one of those Sleepytime/Sweet Dreams tea you can find at your supermarket. They should help you relax.

What's to remember is that those feelings only seem like they're irresistible, but they're really only temporary. If you can distract yourself long enough, they'll go away and you can go on with your business.

Cut out porn if you haven't already. You eventually will need to walk the middle path where you can be subjected to wayward porn and not get triggered but when you're just starting aversion is the best. Stay off of parts of the internet where you know it's more likely to stumble across.

Materialist Answer

>Exercise vigorously during the day or otherwise physically exhaust yourself so you can sleep easier

>No screens 30 mins before bedtime, 60 preferred

>Absolutely no heavy action vidya or entertainment before bed

>No caffeine past noon

>Get into a good sleep pattern where you aren't spending a lot of time laying awake

>If you can't fall asleep due to persistent horniness, do some quick HIIT, take a cold shower, then try again

>Work on your diet and lift regularly

Esoteric Answer:

>Practice mindfulness with your thoughts and don't engage in sexual fantasy.

>Realize that willfully engaging in lewd thoughts keeps them strong and they will come to bother you again once you are left to your thoughts.

>Practice quiet mind meditation when trying to go to sleep. Imagine your mind is the top of a mountain and as thoughts enter they are like clouds, momentarily obscuring the serene top but then passing by. Eventually you will be able to forgo the mountain visualization crutch and just hold the silent void as your state of being.

Getting to 90 days is one of the hardest things you can do as a normal, virile man. Find a key motivator and stick to the plan, once you do this you can do anything.

Listen to a totally clean podcast or story right before you go to bed/as your going to bed (with the lights out). If you do it right, and have had a full day, you'll slip right off to sleep. Something that's like 30-40 minutes long works well. Longer and you'll be asleep before it finishes, shorter and you'll still be awake.

How do I "beat" biology?

I've tried fucking EVERYTHING.

>mentally strengthen myself against porn+fap (PMO)

>convince myself that I hate women

>convince myself that I hate porn and fapping

>desire to become a better man, a model man

>desire to be a celibate sperm-retenter my entire life

>acknowledge that PMO is just a dopamine rush and a literal addiction

>remind myself of all the harmful effects of pmo and the sadness and the bad feelings

>read and keep myself busy and do physical exercise and cold showers

Nothing works. After about 6-7 days, I start feeling sad and horny, "tfw no gf" (while realizing that gf is impossible and will never happen) and "tfw no sex" (while realizing that a false rape accusation just isn't worth it, neither is risking a crazy who wants a relationship).

But, the desire for sex and for a relationship is biology and millions of years of evolution.

How do I defeat this desire/need?

 No.5679

>>5670

I naturally have no desire to have sex and my desire to be in romantic relationships disappeared after being in a shitty one and observing women's shittiness from the sidelines for years as an objective, nonsexual bystander. I consider myself extremely blessed to have these advantages

Unfortunately you're probably not going to beat biology yourself; i just happen to be a genetic fuckup in this respect

What will help decrease your desire to have sex and be in relationships is to occupy your time with things that will benefit your life or bring you happiness. The desire to be in a relationship and have sex is strongly related to a desire for dopamine. If you have nothing going on in your life and you just go to work and come home and play video games or go on the computer your mind will gravitate towards addictions like sex and love as well as the dealers you know that could provide that

Do bodybuilding, get a craft to master or projects to complete, do all of these to increase your quality of life and ability to enjoy it without the drug addictions that women provide: http://8ch.net/nofap/res/3294.html#5666

Go to church. A real one where men and women still have traditional roles. If the women aren't wearing veils/mantillas go somewhere else. You can get a gf, and even one that's sweet and who wants to keep your family together no matter what.

Figured I'd start a thread on here. Wanted to go nofap this year, started out great but after my first slip I've been struggling.

Physical: feeling tired, bit exhausted from the week, looking forward to trying to relax this weekend.

Emotional: dead inside, a little disappointed in myself.

I'm rather new to /nofap/ and tips would be appreciated.

Day 8

Over a full week. Feel good, things seem to have gotten easier. I think I've got the beginnings of habits in place for when I'm tempted, or at least I know what to do. It also might be that there have been way fewer scantily clad women toward the end of the week compared to the beginning. Yesterday I had a meeting that went about as poorly as it could have, in terms of unexpected things coming up/being int interrupted etc. But I was able to stay super calm and despite it going terribly got a lead (and I suspect a recommendation to the lead as well) out of it, which is WAY better than I would have expected given the way the whole thing went. xD

Physical: feel great. Didn't get as much sleep last night as I was hoping, but still a solid 6-7 hours. Decent chance I can do that or better tonight.

Emotional: Fine. Have a challenge coming up Monday, but not stressed about it.

Day 9

Feeling good this morning, things seem to have set into a bit of a pattern where the strongest urge seems to be in the early morning just as I wake up. Probably good to know, also good to know that it passes quite quickly if I just ignore it and start my day.

Physical: I feel great, still tired but hopefully I can take a nap this afternoon or something.

Emotional: I've been feeling good but last night I had an attack of shame/feelings of worthlessness, I suspect it's what I was trying to paper over with fapping. Anyone else get this as they were coming off? Any tips?

remember that pleasure is not the way to a fullfilled life, pleasure just makes you soft and weak.

all the great thing come from strenght, and strenght comes from accepting pain and suffering.

this pain is something you need to embrace to strenghten yourself and have a better life.

Pleasure is the definition of the way to a fulfilled life. The entire point of life is pleasure. You just mean that short bursts of pleasure that decrease your overall pleasure in the long run are not the way to a fulfilled life and experiencing pain has a positive impact on your net pleasure in life

That's because you didn't take the chance to stand up for yourself and get stronger. You learned to be a pussy on those days, before they ever happened the doors were open, now you have decided them to be shut.
