challanged passed, 60 days without porn, and fapping, what I got? nothing really just:
1.first healthy relathionship, fell in love
2.bosted confidance
3.general energetic feeling
4.back on life track, I know what I want and what I am going to do

its not worth it, just a waste of time, leave it guys, fapping to porn while wasting every oportunity life offers is way more satisfying, but I won't return to porn, atleast for now

Believe whatever you want, I am just telling you what happened after I stopped watching porn and wanking like a stupid monkey infront of a simulating screen in a dark room... btw no one knows how porn changes the brain mechanism, so who are you to say it has nothing to do with love?

Well, there you go. Didn't anybody ever tell you if you turn off the lights while you do it, it changes "the brain mechanism" and you have to eat Corn Flakes to make it all right again?

How did quitting porn help you to fall in love? Was it the increase in confidence and the absence of guilt and shame from not looking at porn.
If not looking at porn could do for me what's done for you I would do it, but I quit looking at porn for two years and it didn't improve my life??? I have needs, and I'm not getting any younger. Someday, I won't have a sex drive. What if quitting porn and fapping is just superstition like past generations superstitions of going blind or growing hairy palms.

What if quitting porn and fapping, results in an unplanned pregnancy with someone you barely know. What's worse? Fapping and porn or an unplanned pregnancy with someone you barely know, someone who may not be a good mother...What's worse?

If you're presented with an opportunity to sleep with a new partner, you get a full boost of dopamine. It's called the Coolidge effect. It's there to maximize your chances to reproduce.

Pornography cheats your outdated mind. You simply don't feel as good having intercourse with your significant other as you do "having intercourse" (using your hand or toy) with playmates online. Endless supply of pornography means endless supply of very high amounts of dopamine released, because you trick your brain to believe you're with a new partner.

Personally, I've always felt very different about online and offline sexual satisfaction, so I'm curious to test it out over the next months how it affects me. Currently, only 1 week passed of the experiment and I've had my first wet dream in many many years. Interesting...
but..if you had a girlfriend and you guys had sex every single day, isn't it exactly the same thing ? i don't know i don't buy into all this

maybe I mislead by saying I found love, but yeah, I fell in love. when I was porn watcher, I used to be with girls, but never really liked them, now I got the girl of my dreams which I love and thats the end of the story, its just happened so naturaly and soo fast after I stoped wanking(pr0n)
but really, if you like porn, and fake stimulations, then you can go on watching, I don't care, honestly, just don't harrest me for not doing the same thing... and honestly, pr0n gives you nothing exept momental pleasure, so I don't really know why you care soo much that we want to live without it

haha what's the point of quitting fapping? your body is just going to do it anyway on a random occasion when you're sleeping... what if you were at your grandmas house and just exploded in the guest sheets? That'd be so bad...

I'm not criticizing you. I was just asking a question. I'm happy you've been able to accomplish your goals. I think there are many bad things associated with porn too.

Wow people need to realized that you are not gonna die from not watching porn. I have been 30+ days without it and I just don't miss it at all. It was time for me to retire after 11 years of wasting my time

It works both ways. You're not going to die from watching it either. I didn't even have internet until I was almost 30 so I have been years without porn and it makes no difference AT ALL in my SA.

As far as "wasting my time" I guess you might be if you'd rather be doing something else. So go do whatever it is you'd rather be doing. I don't have anything better to do.

I hate to tell you but you're still wasting your time if you're trying to convince me not to beat off twice a week because I enjoy it. I am going to keep doing it as long as I can get it up and nothing is going to stop me.

I'm not trying to convince you of anything. Watch it as much as you want if it doesn't do anything to you. I watched a lifetime of it and saw... too many different things. I just think it was time for me to move on from this, it's just that it is a hard habit to get rid of. If you are still getting satisfaction from porn keep watching it, I just don't any more.

I see alot of ignorant-sounding comments on here.
What everyone seems to be missing is that everybody is different.
Some people may not even notice a difference while others will be affected profoundly. The thing is, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW unless you try!

I know that, for me, there is definitely a difference in my mental state when I refrain from fapping for a significant period of time. Just recently, I went for 1.5 months without ejaculating. [I still fapped OCCASIONALLY, but not to completion]. When I masturbate regularly, I tend to have obsessive thoughts about not only sex, but also love, romance and everything inbetween. It would make me anxious to even hang out or talk to a cool attractive female because my thoughts would always turn to obsessing about what it would be like to have sex with her, be in a relationship with her, etc. Toward the end of the 1.5 month stretch though I was hardly ever even think about sex. I could have fun with a cute girl and just be done with it. I used to think that monks and priests were crazy for even attempting a life of celibacy, but at that point celibacy started to actually seem like a good idea because my thoughts were so much clearer without the constant obsessive thoughts about sex and relationships. Overall I felt more confident, more level-headed, etc. Of course I eventually screwed it up and accidently 'completed'. I am trying to get back into the same 'groove' I was in right now.

For me, there is a hump [no pun intended] at about the 3-7 day mark when the urge is strongest, but after that it gets easier. After about 2 weeks, I basically don't even think about it any more.
