Resetting to Day 1 -.- I know I haven’t officially announced my entry, but yeah…

My boyfriend and I have already committed to quitting on our own for moral and religious reasons, but I’ve found myself struggling with the temptation to do it. This morning I did it just to do it, so reason for it at all. My body didn’t even want it.

I think a public commitment might help me more than just being accountable to one person.

30 days and beyond. Gogo!

Had to reset, like, every day this week. I don’t know why this is so difficult. Did any of the ladies doing this have a difficult time at first, too?

Wow… now I see what’s going on here. I never had an addiction in the first place. That’s why I never did this challenge. You’re putting too much pressure on yourselves, charming perverts!

But I am doing a lot of things that just keep me occupied and satisfied, not really sexually oriented… although… well… hmmm. What do you really want to achieve after this challenge? To what end is all of this? I am simply asking, because I never feel drained or weak or something like this. I feel weak only if I EAT.

But sexual stimulation (be it manual or however it is occurring) is the best way to prevent prostate cancer, and it is one of the best stress relievers. So I guess my question is, why?

This is directed at everyone who is completely negative towards this challenge. If you don’t understand it, don’t do it…if you don’t think it works for you, then don’t put it down for others. EVERYONE who is in the challenge knows exactly why they are in it. They want to reboot their minds and rid themselves of the addiction of porn. You all might not think you have an addiction to porn, cool all the power to you, you are strong. GOOD FOR YOU…slow clap. Don’t try to dis-prove something you haven’t tried. Just accept the fact that people are trying to change their lives and be fucking supportive.

I’ve been 90 days strong on this challenge and it has changed so much about me. Mostly psychologically, and I would think that ANY women on here would be totally supportive of any man who is trying to rid the misogynistic thoughts from their minds and re-develop respect for women walking down the street.

Oh and by the way, I hooked up with a girl yesterday and she told me she has never felt so connected to a man and she felt complete ecstasy…This IS a result of me getting rid of the porn and being in the moment during sex.

@otingocniman, Once again for the millionth time. HAVE ALL THE SEX YOU WANT. This challenge isn’t about abstinence

I still believe that breathing turns me on and not breathing turns me off. And I cannot go without breathing for 30 days. I guess this challenge is for people who get easily aroused by every kind of porn. I am very whimsy.

But I cannot understand one thing about porn. How are people getting addicted to it, really. It gets fucking boring. It’s not even a fucking secret or a taboo anymore. Most of the porn actresses are not even enjoying it and it’s down right ugly.

What am I fucking saying? Even some relationships are like a case of bad porn – emotionless and fucking tragic!

@beyond, I actually agree with you. If you asked me 3 months ago I would have disagreed but now that I have stopped watching porn I don’t even know how I got addicted to it in the first place.

Honestly Sasho, whether it is a placebo affect or not, getting rid of porn kicked me in the ass and got me out pursuing real women. I was addicted to porn and every time I watched porn I had no need or interest to go out. The deed was done, the seed was out, why go out and find a mate? My body got lazy, it didn’t know the difference between sex and masturbation to porn. The endorphines were flowing and it was happy enough with Porn. That is why I got rid of porn. I understand you don’t get it, but then it’s not your problem to get. People get addicted to it, I was one of them. WAS WAS WAS!

@beyond, I started this challenge to get rid of my porn addiction (I did not even know I was addicted in the first place) and the combination of porn+masturbation. I do not see any positive sides of porn anymore, so why the hell would I watch it? While reading on YBOP I only discovered all the negative sides and I really did not want to get to certain points like described in some of the articles. I rather prevent certain things before it is ‘too late’

@otingocniman, I would advise you to read on YBOP but to give a simple and short answer on your question: nothing bad is being said about masturbating, it is the link between masturbating and porn that is bad.

@luigiblue, well said! Day 79 for me and a couple of days ago for the first time during this whole challenge I found myself in a difficult position and almost could not resist myself, but fortunately I managed and only experienced blue balls for a some time later on heheh.

@beyond, the fact that you cannot understand certain things about certain people is your problem not theirs.

Well, quit porn pretty easy.

Kept the rest up. but for the short while where I quit masturbation, sex was golden.

Going to stop the masturbation now as sex sucks after sexing yourself.

@filipek, I never said I don’t understand certain things about people. I simply said that there is no sense in watching simple directed fucking with people who are not enjoying it. Get it? I don’t have a problem. The only sense there, is that they do it for money. It would be great if they were actually loving what they do.

@beyond, You said that you cannot understand how people get addicted to it, but it works in the same way as every other addiction. The fact that you think there is no sense in it, does not mean that this is the truth and/or everybody should be behave like that because you think that there is no sense or whatever. I see no sense in sticking up bottles in your ass, but I do not judge people who do so; who am I to judge their behaviour? As long as it does not affect me, or others in a negative way, let them do whatever they want.
Anyway, we are getting off topic

Reset to day one. Again. But it’s okay. I made it to day 3 three this time. I think I figured out how to control it (so long as I actually follow along with what I figured out). It’s a fight. But isn’t life a fight, too?

Guys i am into this for quite a while, and let me assure you that it increases your mean testosterone levels or maybe keeps it at a satisfying level.

I recently signed up for gym, and before that i was kind of training, you know push ups, pull ups squats, running etc etc. and when i got into weight lifting(approx for a 1.5 – 2 months from now on) i was/am working like i am on a modest level of steroid. I was getting under weights which were kind of toooo much for me as everyone would say. But you get a feeling of ‘achievement of something’ and chemical highs.

Anyways i ve been diagnosed with varicoele(vascular problem in testicular area in which veins are refluxing and limiting blood flow to testicles). I have been asked to do sperm tests these 2 weeks and getting it out really affected my performance, especially my willpower, at some heavy weights on bench press i wouldnt be able to lift but i would push so hard for 10-15seconds which would make me moan. After that i wouldnt get slowed down. Like as if you spray cold water to a horny animal to make it stop being horny but it bounces back! you get to be much more ‘alpha’ than you even were. I loved it

And after those sexual weeks i dont even want to get under weights
