    Hello Everyone

    I just joined this website today. My goal is to go a whole week without masturbation or ejaculation. I will check in periodically (at least every 2-3 days).

    Thank you so so much for your support. I also commit to doing 15+ minutes of cardiovascular exercise each day.


    In Gratitude,

    Hank

    Thanks, Headspace. I am wrapping up Day 4 and feeling good. I love the gradual build of vitality that conserving my seed provides.

    I went on two jogs today so I should sleep well tonight.

    We can discuss extending the streak once Day 7 hits.

    Jake & Underdog...how you doin?

    Hey, Hank83. I have just joined it today and I am very happy to with you all. I was just watching a TEDtalk and found this. May be lucky and happy to have a community where it just provides you a very positive atmosphere. I am setting a "MONTH" challenge today that will be followed by your "7-day commitment" and again happy to with you all and i have started imagining me as a NEW ME.
    Thanks, all Fapstraunauts.

    Hey Hank and everyone else who's starting out.
    I am new to this too. I just finished my first seven days today. It wasn't difficult at all, if I can do it, so can you guys!
    About two or three days in, I decided to install the K9 web filter. Strictly speaking, it won't really keep me from porn. I mean...I know the master password. I could just turn it off. But I hope it'll give me one last line of defense, one last moment to think "Stop, what are you doing!?"
    Also, just installing it, opening a NSFW URL and see it being blocked made me feel good. Dunno, I feel like I'm in and have things under control?

    As a final motivation for anyone struggling with reaching this first milestone: I actually have been feeling better already. I feel happier and less sluggish. I got a lot more things done than usual. It's not much but it's something. Hang in there. It's going to be worth it!

    Hey I was not able to successfully complete my 7 days. on 3rd day i woke up with an erection and could not control myself. Before i could take control i was done.
    I usually wake up in middle of the night to half asleep and am not able to control my toughts which leads me to masturbation. I create erotic thoughts in my head if ive tried to control myself for a few days which usually leads to me not able to control myself in that state. Even before i dont think i have been able to control myself more than 3 days.
    I barely ever completed 7 days.
    I started again on Friday. Last night i had the same problem but i controlled myself eventually. lets hope i complete it this time.

    Don't make a X day challenge! This will not defeat your addiction. It's a bad mindset to start. It's not a challenge, it's a life change for the better. Sacrifice today for tomorrows betterment. You either quit for ever or you don't. Make the commitment that you are done with it forever. Because of you make a challenge of this you unconsiously accept the fact you may be able to fap somewhere in the future.

    hey guys i was able to complete my goal last week. Now i say lets double this challenge. I agree with what jason said even though its impossible to quit something over night that has been going on for more than a decade.
    Let me know what you guys take on next. I would to take this new habit to the next level.

    Hello All,

    My initial post here has been the beginning of a pretty revolutionary time for me. I made it to Day 16, fapped very minorly, then am now back on Day 10.

    Ejaculating once in a 26 day span feels INCREDIBLE. So so so healthy.


    Kevin, Scike & Hello...how are you doing?

    I also started a spreadsheet on Google Drive that tracks my success. It makes a difference.
