Distractions are clearly the best weapon we have against temptation. Video games, television watching, and browsing the net seems like guaranteed failure. Gym, playing sports, being out with friends, and meeting girls is clearly the solution.

It's unfortunate that people feel the need to sh1t on other people's efforts by posting pics.

It would be fairly easy to sit quietly, breathe deeply, and practice concentration (meditate) whenever you feel the urge to relieve yourself.

I can't prove it, but it certainly feels that way to me. But I also believe that change begets change... meaning that once you make an effort to change one thing, it becomes easier to change other things. That's why I think this challenge is great no matter what the outcome.

Good idea, but I also want to suggest that you don't have to see this as a win/fail situation. Even if you falter, you can still get up and try again... probably with more success. Put it this way -- if you decided to go to the gym every day, would it be wise to stop going altogether just because you missed a day?

Yea I think that this is a test of how mentally strong you are. You have to find ways to keeps yourself from thinking about it. Basically blocking it out of your head completely. Do things require physical activity. That's probably the nest solution.

I'm not shitting on their efforts, I'm testing their will power.

why would stopping altogether have significantly more effect than limiting?

The idea is you want to re-wire yourself to get the dopamine release elsewhere which forces you to rearrange your bedroom so you have more room for activities.

I am in on this. No fap, but booty calls are fair game.

Of course. The goal is, IMO anyway, to rewire your brain to have a more natural drive. Associating the natural high with hooking up with a chick is fine. It will motivate you to do that which will attract them (all those successful things in life... exercise, hard work, etc).... The inverse has you achieving a natural high (and wiring your brain to desire to) by sitting in a dark room.. hardly something to strive for.

I mean, i still believe my brian is wired for success Chase, but there's a compromise in using porn to quickly and efficiently finish the job.

Limit fapping to <5 min per week.

Agreed 100%

Let me add something here. Could you imagine if you couldn't do it. People find it so easy to do it that they don't see the need to go out and find a girl and have sex with her. They figure they can just do it themselves. So you are limiting social interactions knowing this.

Again, sublimation...
Quote:
Sexual sublimation, also known as sexual transmutation, is the attempt, especially among some religious traditions, to transform sexual impulses or "sexual energy" into creative energy.

just how frequently are you guys fapping that you feel like it's having a negative effect on your life?

For real I want to have legitimate s*x multiple times a day. Maybe I'm just one h*rny a*s person but when I have a gf i get s*x almost every day or every other day so when I am out of a relationship. That want for that feeling is really strong so usually I do it once a day unless I have a lot going on.

i'm with you dude. 2-3 times per week for me on average, and never more than once a day. most of the time, it takes just a couple minutes too; i dont make a big event out of it and stare at porn for an hour. is this abnormal?

week days are usually when I do it most. Like I said earlier, I have multiple sources so I am always checking them so if something pops up and I'm like well time to fap. There's a members sig around here that has a quote from me about this that's pretty funny.
