I'm doing the No Porn and No Fap challenge as well. Glad it's working for you!

I do feel that I have more energy when I'm retaining my semen. I'm starting to feel a bit more focused as well with work and other productive activities.
I am also doing no video games and TV/movies, but I am having problems with my TV habits (specially Netflix). Meditating and regular exercise helps a lot too.

One way it helped me was not to overburden myself with goals, perhaps two goals at one time for me was helpful. And was I have conquered (no major relapse, mostly) I feel empowered to take on more goals.

Alright. I'll focus on no fap and no porn first before focusing my efforts on no TV/movies.

Thank you for this!

21 days and counting..... 21 days is my own internal milestone, each time I hit 21 I put a mental tick.

meditating is also going well, it's been going on for like two years now actually.
How is this all affecting the rest of your life? What else are you doing? What have you accomplished within the last 2 years? Changing your personal habits must have some type of life purpose...

the list
- waking up at 6:30 daily for two years, I’ve been waking up at 8 or 9am before that often times not at optimal level, due tojerking off and chatting girls up on Tinder the night before.

- a Get Shit Done list. I do much better with a written down reminder but mental one works sometimes. When I write it on paper I am amazed how much procrastination I had.

- putting down phone / social media for 30/60 minutes period. When I tried doing that I realized how hard it was, I wanted to fiddle with the phone so much I feel like chopping off my fingers, so much I had to use alarm.

- working out. I’ve been exercising since high school but it was when I started a routine and stuck to it that I see my muscle, stamina grew. The routine was simply writing down progress.

- financial freedom. Ironically I came to FLF after I achieve financial independence, I made several millions from my business but I think I lost focus and I needed to be better man and reached my next multi million, I think I am on the way. One very crucial piece missing was my ability to plan my finances else I would have squandered it and I am still learning.

- my own fear, more on this next time buddy.

I've been trying to stop charming the snake for years, but never went further than 35 days (and that was 2 years ago). Now, every 3-5 days I'm beating the bishop.

Honestly, throughout all the years I have been doing this habit, I must have cleaned out a tiny forest with all the Kleenex that was wasted, or the toilet water.

For me, cutting off just this habit and engaging in other bad habits is a big fat no, because one thing leads to another until I end up thinking about beating my meat again.

For the guys who tried apps, how have they helped you? And how do you deal with the pressure that builds up, the intense pornographic thoughts and the overall feeling that you could bust through concrete with the strength of the frequent erections after a week of not emptying the porridge?

That's interesting. Most people must make their fortune 3 times before they are able to hang on to it. That's a topic that could use a lot more discussion. You made your goal and then you fell into bad habits. Uh. And you could have lost it all and had to start over again... Talk about that moment when you knew you made it. That's the "lost" moment. I have asked many times what you do when you've climbed Mount Olympus -- what do you do then? That's the most interesting part of your thread for me.

We are in about the same shoes, I think.

My longest was 45 days, and I had many times of 3 - 5 days of nofap to go off course again....

I have since mentally told myself to reach 21 days each time, it's not always successful but at least I have a target and getting midway to 21 is always encouraging, and once I hit 21 days I allow myself to fap if I want to, maybe as a candy reward, but there are times I told myself since I am at 21 days why not 28 days, why not 35 days, usually in the increment of a week so 21 , 28, 35 days.

Actually today it's my 22nd day, so I just achieved my milestone and I am telling myself to go another 7 days of nofap to get to 28 days, and if I get there will see how it goes.

Generally it's very helpful to have a new habit to supplement the old (bad) habit. It could be getting your long dreamt off website up, it could be approaching ten girls weekly, it could be making your first $ bucks.

Thanks for being interested in my story, I appreciate that.

I made my first mini fortune in 2017 and I got into FLF in 2018. As said, I got into FLF because I didn't know how to "handle" myself better, how to get to the next mile, and of course I have a lot of question like how to manage my money, life, company etc because I am now on my next level.... so all these brought me to FLF. I don't want to wax philosophical but a person can have more unsatisfaction when he/she has newly gotten a fortune, a promotion, an upgrade in social status. The instant euphoria followed by more questions / doubts, and that's what I was.

I think it comes down to that at the end of the day. When we want to improve our diet, we don't just cut off the junk. We also add healthy food. I think when it comes to nofap, we have to be able to develop healthy relationships with women. If I was able to go out and talk to any woman I want to, provided it's not an extreme situation, I would not be fapping. Especially once I have other things going on in my life, like running a full time business, addressing mental issues that I was not aware I had like toxic beliefs, unbalanced activity in the brain, etc.

I agree somewhat but not all. I like your analogy of cutting junk food also involves having good and healthy food.

Maybe I am wrong, you seem to have an “if only”. I won’t fap if only I have women, if only i have a great life etc. you could turn it around by saying by nofaping you have time to meet more women and in turn a beneficial cycle happens.

I get what you are saying. I am not going to wait until I have the women and the business. I am still addressing a few mental and physical health issues and I am fully aware that the busier I get the harder it will be to keep fapping.

Whether I accomplish my goals or in the process of accomplishing I am certain that my mind will naturally 'forget' to hook me on porn. It's just easier to procrastinate on porn because I am busy with other things in life as opposed to fighting every day to keep myself away from it.

Some times I read post from people who managed to abstain from porn for about a year and then gone back to it full force. When I read further, all of them had no dating life or at least in pursuit of a meaningful goal. Just cutting the waste is not enough.
