    Jeramy

    I want to abstain from porn and Masturbation for a period of 8 weeks. When I say porn I am referring primarily to online porn videos. I am addicted to that stuff and strongly believe that it caused my SE. I also plan to not masturbate voluntarily. If I happen to have a nocturnal ejaculation that’s fine but I am not going to do it by myself.

    I actually started abstaining from December 8th. So one week is already up. During this past one week I did not see porn nor did I masturbate. I have 7 more weeks to go.

    Wish me luck

    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

    Days 1 through 6 went through ok although I had some urges to see porn.

    Day 7

    The urge to see porn was very strong. I went to the extent of downloading a porn video but was strong enough not to open it. Without opening the video I deleted it. I experienced mild nocturnal erections for the first time in 1 week.

    Day 8

    The urge to see porn was again very strong but I was able to fight it. I experienced a strong nocturnal erection that actually woke me up. Couldn’t sleep because of the erection and stayed awake for a while. I did not masturbate though.

    you know HCP …it will be hard in the beginning so you need to prepare your self properly by reducing your free time by indulging in useful things

    Good Luck HCP

    I get these a lot now actually. Which is weird. I never used to get nocturnal erections that were to the point of waking me up.

    The best thing I can suggest, is get up out of bed, walk around and grab a glass of water to cool down, and then go back to bed.

    Do multiplication in your head to take your mind off of the boner too.

    Good results already!

    When I’m very horny at nights I tend to gently massage myself everywhere (but the penis). It feels very good, it’s kind of masturbation without negative side effects, also very healing. It will also divert the attention from your penis and helps you to connect your sexuality to your whole body.

    I think one big problem is that during normal masturbation it is only your penis that get’s the stimulation… When you make love, your whole body is caressed and stimulated.

    Why do you guys think that looking at porn without wacking off is still bad?

    Has it been tried and proven?

    If anything I’d think getting regular erections raise your testosterone levels. Of course it can turn into a bad habit if you start doing it frequently but I mean once in a while just to get the blood flowing.. why not?

    N I know you can use your imagination but if you’re gonna get a boner either way.. why not look at pictures once in a while?

    I’ve reduced masturbating too.. so kinda wondering too.

    I’ve tried it.

    Not saying it’s good or bad.

    Still it’s most likely a strain for the healing prostate.

    Arousal should be spontaneous. Not porn-originated.

    I don’t think it interferes with healing if you watch porn once a week without touching yourself.

    You can increase bloodflow there with breathing & pelvic floor exercises aswell. These may aswell lead to a healthy erection.

    Just go out to the real world and cut the connection with porn, masturbation & computer…

    The mind will make many excuses to stay with porn

    Thanks for the support guys. I really need it.

    Today morning I had some sexual thoughts and I wanted to masturbate so badly but I chose not to!

    Nicolas, does abstaining have any impact on hormones at all? I know that one of major my problem is Testosterone.

    #10926

    Stephan

    I never did any tests so I wouldn’t know.

    I read in one book it calms any extreme changes in hormones that happen because of sexual activity. I think this enables a steady improvement in hormonal balance over time.

    #10927

    Neville

    thanks bro.

    I will probably go for a blood test during the 6th week or so and see if something has changed.

    #10928

    Dylan

    I find the first week difficult. After that the urge seems to lessen a bit. Then I feel a little horney and it’s then I need to be vigilant.

    Best of luck.

    Shad

    Sorry to answer for but i have something to say

    my answer is yes…if your body is still in its strong position then you’ll be able to have an improvement specially when you add some supplements and whole foods like nuts , eggs , meat , honey , dates , seaweed

    No. Abstaining does not affect your hormones that greatly TBH.

    Anyone who says so is doing it without sources.

    Testosterone isn’t affected by masturbation very much either.

    Not unless you go from excessive masturbation to none at all. Moving from regular masturbation to none at all will have no apparent effect.

    #10932

    Miles

    abstaining will not cure your hormones……

    have gotten testosterone meaured after a 3 week abstience period……414

    got testosterone measured in a week where i ejaculated 8 times…….505……

    make your own conclusions

    I would say abstaining willa affect neurotransmitter more but even so not that signficant.

    Days 9 and 10

    Day 9 I had strong craving to look at a porn video but resisted it.

    Day 10 was ok. I did not have any urges or cravings.

    So yea, its been 10 days of no porn and no masturbation. Let me see how this thing goes

    #10934

    Clarence

    Days 11 and 12 [Dec 18 and 19]

    I SLIPPED ON THE 11th DAY

    I made a mistake guys. I thought what harm is going to happen if I just look at some porn images. I am certainly not looking at a video… and I looked at some images and then my mind started craving for the video.. it was very strong and I eventually succumed. I watched porn videos yesterday night and today morning and ejaculated a total of 3 times.

    But there is a good side to it. Somehow I am not feeling as guilty or hurt as I used to in the past. In fact my confidence levels have gone up now. I have learnt that even viewing a porn image is as dangerous as a porn video. It all leads to the same crap –> ejaculation.

    Anyhow I am not giving up and am re-starting from tomorrow, Dec 20. This time I am not even going to take my chances with an image.

    Chad

    u really need k9….

    how many years have u been repeating this cycle…..abstain 12 days ejaculate….godamit im gona abstain again this time i swear ……5 days later same shit ….

    the worse part is its not even gona fix your problems….your still gona have shity T…high estrogen as well as everythign else thats wrong with you.

    eventually this cycle is gona make you feel even worse until u get to the point where you totally give up

    #10936

    Riley

    as said, ya.. the prostate.

    not only that but i believe that the ED from SE is partly because of porn..

    when you watch too much porn, you get bored easily of simply seeing ‘just tits’ and want more. Sooner or later, you find yourself requiring more hardcore porn to stimulate you. In other words, it’s not just a physical barrier that causes ED, it can also be psychological, in that the normal titty bouncing and ass jiggling things that normally gets the normal healthy male hard will require more effort to get the porn addict hard, not only because of SE but because they are so used to seeing it so often.

    Very true….thats the only reason im avoiding porn ….think about it….even if your very lucky and start working with a doctor who can help you heal your hormones and your neurotransmitters and whatever else went wrong with your body..its gona take a while…..i would say anywere from 6 months to 3 years . do you really wanna stay addicted to porn that whole time. Think about how bad the addiction for some is now…..after 3 more years its just gona get worse.

    healing SE= healing hormones, healing neuros but also getting rid of bad sexual habits such as porn. I would say porn is especially bad if your a virgin also….since porn is nothing like real sex .

    #10938

    Kory

    This is precisely the reason why I want to abstain from porn.

    #10939

    Charlie

    I’ve only ever watched porn while I’m masturbating, I really don’t think it’s that bad.

    then again I’m not addicted.

    #10940

    Royce

    ya for me it was like when i had a girlfriend and a constant supply of sex i had no trouble not watching porn or masterbating.

    then once that was gone shit sorta went down hill. im just not trying to become one of those fat ass dudes who stays at home and jerks off to videos all days.

    SE is gona take a while to improve to a level where i feel confident enough to F*ck girls . That puts me at risk to making porn my only source of sexual stimulation. i think after 6 months to a year of just watching porn things would not be good in the mental stimulation department.

    I rather just use my imagination when i masterbate. its alot healthier and mimics the sexual response alot closer.

    #10941

    Emery

    So I re-started my abstinence program from yesterday. This time around I do not even want to look at porn images let alone porn videos.

    Day 1 [Dec 22]

    First day went very well. No urges or cravings. I had a very strong nocturnal erection that woke me up in the night. But it faded as soon as I became completely awake. I am not able to understand why

    #10942

    Jaime

    Re-started?

    Dude why do you keep starting and re-starting? You aren’t making progress.

    Patrick

    I first started on Dec 8 and went on up to 10 days. I slipped on the 11th day. So I am starting my abstinence program once again. Is this too difficult for you to understand?? If you want to support me then you are always welcome to write in this log but do not come here and write statements like “You aren’t making progress”.

    #10945

    Forest

    If you want to joke and make a mockery you can find other threads. keeps failing repeatedly so you can always go to his thread and laugh at him.

    I am really disappointed with your behavior. This forum is meant to encourage and support each other. So if you cannot do that fine but just don’t come to someone’s thread and laugh at them.

    #10946

    Rocco

    i laugh at both of you….

    im just trying to give you an outside perspective of how pointless, and repetitive your cycles are.

    whens the next cycle gona end? 3 days? 2 weeks?…..what progress gets made in those days in between? Did you your sexual function come back to you?

    if anything you sould thank me and technical for helping

    #10947

    Jarod

    as a matter of fact…..ill ask you one last time

    lets say you get mad at me….lets say ur like F*ck js hes an asshole and you somehow abstain say 9 months….do you think ur dick will actually work again?

    aside for getting rid of your porn addiction which is good ( probably temporarily because once you realized you didnt make any progress you probably be like….wow im in the same place i was last year….sexualy exhausted , you would start jerkin again )

    though if u abstained 9 months i would give you props no matter what happend

    #10948

    Aron

    Where have I mentioned that I’m hoping to recover just by abstaining??? I have repeatedly said that I’m using abstinence + supplements to heal. I really don’t get it why u keep thinking that I am just using abstinence to recover. Also I’m not planning to abstain for months together. At the minimum I want to go for 4 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks.

    #10949

    Kendrick

    u no what your right im sorry

    im just gona do my own thing im gona leave everyone alone.

    merry christmas , happy chanukah and whatever other holidays you guys celebrate

    #10950

    Lyman

    All you ever mention is the abstinence though, that’s why I don’t see the point. If you’re targeting with your supplementing and not just going about it blindly then by all means I apologize, but supplementing blindly and abstaining isn’t going to do anything.

    #10951

    Simon

    Cool JS and . We are all here to help and support each other.

    My plan is to abstain plus use supplements for couple of months. Then I am going in for a blood test and see what my numbers look like. If T and E2 still look shitty then I am going to see Dr.Mariano. That’s my plan. Also, the supplements that I am taking right now are Fish Oil, Borage Oil, Vitamin C, ALA, Vit B6, Chromium Picolinate… and I am hoping that these will help regulate my blood sugar levels.

    Day 2 [Dec 23]

    Didn’t have much cravings to see porn or masturbate. Once again felt nocturnal erections but they were not strong enough to wake me up.

    #10953

    Reuben

    all your supps are good from my point of view

    and abstaining from porn and masturbation is the first step in ending your degeneration where both factors works in killing and draining your brain and nerves power and juices…

    I think you need to check your Vitamin D and zinc magnesium levels to make sure they are in the range…. because if they are low they will push your fasting glucose to raise aka insulin resistance

    your fish oil must contain adequate amount of EPA DHA + ALA will fuel your brain needs…or at least stops the migraines due to the imbalances that happened in your previous years from MB

    if you want my advice for now…add Vitamin D 800 IU in your protocol

    till you do your tests

    Plus Calcium Magnesium zinc ( 400 mg – 200 mg -10 mg)…you can find them in one cap…or get them separately, but the main point is supplementing with the RDA recommendation till you find your deficiencies

    the other factor that may aid in Glucose control is potassium and Vandium, Selenium ….read bout them

    In case you didnt want to get them all get a Multi Mineral or a multivitamin for now

    my second advice is to get an amino acid cap…. those who contain a 1 gram in each cap…take 2-5 grams a day..it may help to nourish your muscle and nerves and it will enhance the Liver function with the ALA

    Losing weight and fat from your body may aid in lowering your sugar

    PS: Why in the hell my name was mentioned above …..

    PS: don’t exceed the 1000 mg for ALA..it may have negative effects

    Good Luck in the Abstaining and healing Journey….

    #10954

    Cordell

    Thanks a lot for the great post . I will definitely consider the supplements you’ve recommended. I am relying on ALA, Vit B6, and Chromium Picolinate to improve my blood sugar levels. I had no idea that Vit D-Magnesium-Zinc deficiency could cause insulin resistance

    Day 4 [Dec 25]

    Same as day 3.. went by fine.

    So far so good.

    I know that it will get very tough after the first week. I got to be careful.
