    whatever you do is, i still think a good idea is to abstain 1-3 months. whatever you feel good with then go back to once a week or 10 days.. give or take here and there

    There is another way that you can stop porn addiction, chronic masturbation and recover your sexual health without fighting it with willpower. With the right mindset you won't even relapse. You can learn more about the recovery program here

    I’ve decided to add 2 egg yolks a day to my diet…I mix the egg yolk in a glass of milk, stir it for a while, then add some Nesquik or some other mix to make it taste better then gulp it down as quickly as possible.

    Also added some supplements to my diet, other than multivitamins, I’m also taking zinc, magnesium and essential fatty acids capsules daily.

    My health is starting to improve slowly. Running 3 times a week now.

    Something I came across on eating habits to increase vitality.

    This book (Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill) was recommended to me by a friend a few years ago, I bought it, but never got around to reading it until now. This book has inspired many legends including Bruce Lee, his statement of intent was based on the principles of Napoleon Hill.

    Anyway, the reason I posted it was because of this chapter on sex transmutation. Enjoy.

    I have also began a new exercise and conditioning regiment based on a mixture of Brad Pitts fight club training workout and typical boxing workouts. Its the best workout routine I’ve seen so far, it focuses on just one set of muscles a day from Monday to Thursday and intense cardio on Friday. The routine is missing ab exercises, so I added that, I also added squats and dead lifts to the program. Added some boxing training into the mix as well, jump rope (10 minutes) and shadow boxing. I would like to get a heavy bag(boxing) later on.

    I’ve changed my diet significantly also and am being very disciplined about it.

    There are a few variations of this workout on the net, I’m not sure which one is actually the real brad pitt fight club workout. I chose this one. You can pretty much do all these exercises and home with a adjustable workout bench and some dumbbells. For cardio I run for 30 – 40mins twice a week, I plan to add some more intense interval running as I get fitter.

    when doing these exercises, remember…

    * don’t forget to stretch and warm up

    * Three Sets of Each Exercise

    * Rest for Only 60 Seconds in between Exercises

    * Use Enough Weight or Resistance That Allows You to Perform 15 Repetitions

    * Use Proper Form in All Movements

    Focusing on just one or two muscles a day has many benefits:

    – you are less likely to get injured

    – you can target and focus more on a particular set of muscles

    – you need less time working out

    – its less strenuous than trying to workout several body parts in one go.

    good info. i heard a lot of great things about that book..

    right now im doing weight training 4x a week, spending about an hour in the gym.. i’m going for more of a body builder routine, each body part once a week, 3sets of 10reps

    those boxing workouts seem pretty intense….

    i think most of us would benefit from lighter exercises , such as brisk walks, stretching, yoga, light weight training. etc. 20-30minutes a day.

    sometimes i think im over training for my condition.

    yup, have not completed it yet, but the ideas are in it are thought provoking. I think all the new age theories like the “law of attraction”, “ïntention manifestation” and “the secret” are spin offs of Napoleon Hills idea of “Definate Major Purpose”.

    I am not doing all those boxing workouts, just jump ropeskipping and shadow boxing. I try to train only 30 to 45 mins a day.

    Raymond

    by “definite major purpose” you mean to say we have to have one major focus like abstinence?

    #15336

    Alfonso

    no, it has nothing to do with abstinence. Its about knowing what you want in life with definiteness and certainty…having a definite intention for your life.

    By hijacking our dopamine system, addictive substances give us pleasure without our having to work for it.

    After 3 weeks, the pull to have an orgasm weakens. I think the attachment hold on your unconscious weakens. The initial 1 to 3 week period is a real struggle but after that it becomes easier. You will still always need to be on your guard and watch out for triggers. The longer you go without it the more intense the stimulation you get out of a trigger. So, while the need to orgasm dissipates with lengthy periods of abstinence, you will still be vulnerable to triggers. A person who has been looking at porn and masturbating for a long time has wired their dopamine reward system to seek gratification through masturbationsexpornorgasm, so it can take a long time to rewire your dopamine gratification system. Watching porn raises you dopamine levels in anticipation of the reward. Another thing I noticed is that my will power definitely increased, maybe something to do with self denialcontrol.

    Quote:

    So, what have I learned so far:

    1) once you pass the 3 week mark, it becomes easier, the attachment weakens.

    2) you still need to always be on guard against triggercues as you dopamine reward system in your brain is still wired to seek gratification the way it has been doing it for the past years. It can take a long time to rewire your dopamine reward system to new more beneficial healthy real rewards.

    I’ve not masturbated for several weeks now, it seems a lot easier to control myself nowadays. I feel a lot better now that I’ve managed to master myself for a while. I’m not sure whether its related or a consequence of it, I’ve noticed my will power and determination have increased. I have had several opportunities to look at porn but did not, I did not even feel compelled to look.

    Health wise, I don’t really notice any really significant changes. Other than that I’ve been eating well and training regularly with discipline, my stamina has significantly increased. When I am well rested though, my face looks a lot more composed. My energy levels have increased but are affected by other circumstances such as the amount of sleep I get and the food I eat and my daily interactions.

    I’ve not been sleeping well lately due to stress and worry, over the past 2 weeks I’ve been training intensely and working hard and sleeping very little. I’m feeling the effects this week though, I look really tired and morose, my eyes lackluster. I’m still trying to find a comfortable routinehabits for my life.
