Hello kings. Today's theme hits like a truck because, as I said before, cooming is my biggest addiction out of all of the things I've been hooked on. Let's dive in with some facts and logic.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

I think it was sometime around 10th grade in high school for me. Up until then I was a major coomer. Multiple faps a day, no girl experience, very shy, no friends, vidya addiction, spent all of my time studying or playing games. I was also a fat and unkempt fuck. But in 10th grade I went through my first change. I started to feel lonely, the porn just didn't cut it. I wanted a girlfriend, and not for sex. I did not wish to be horny anymore, I just wanted to be happy.

Also, I had a huuge crush on a girl. She was really pretty and also depressed and with family trouble like me, so I related to her in a way. We talked a lot, but she was never interested in me before my first transformation. She just slept around and, well, tried to fill the absence of her daddy with whatever douchebags she banged I guess. But we still talked and got to know each other pretty well, and me being young and dumb I liked her even though she was a wee bit slutty. So I started feeling even shittier because she didn't really like me, and I said fuck it. I got me a nice haircut for the first time in my life (no joke), I started losing weight (lost about 20kg), got some decent clothes and started learning how to talk to girls. It seemed easy in theory but I lacked the key element: confidence. And then it hit me why.

The way I figured it out was: whenever I had multiple day trips with my family and I couldn't fap I felt more daring. If we went to the pool or something I'd even try to talk to the girls there. Me, the awkward loser approaching girls. And then it hit me why. Since I couldn't fap during those trips, I felt better and more confident. I had the drive to meet girls.

I started nofap (without knowing what it was, I just tried to stop wanking). I googled something about not masturbating in order to do some research and came across nofap forums and I was stunned. My answer was there. People like me, fighting the same battle. I won't go into detail of how it helped, but after all of these improvements I started hitting it off with girls, started having girlfriends. And even my original crush started to like me, but being young and relatively inexperienced with girls (and their subtle to nonexistent hints) I didn't notice. It was after high school that I heard about her liking me, but it was too late at that point. We still talk every once in a blue moon but that's it.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

sigh I wish. The addiction is strong, and even though I have pretty decent streaks sometimes, I still relapse. The fact that I'm currently single doesn't help either, but I'm in a low place right now and I feel like a gf would only make things worse. I need to fix some stuff about myself before I can look for a good woman.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

It definitely is not a load of crap. The only people saying so are the addicts in denial. Those guys that couldn't even do it for three days. Sour grapes, you know.

Although some people REALLY exaggerate the "superpowers" and give the whole movement a cringy aura, it does have benefits. I experienced them firsthand and it truly changed my life for the better. More motivation, more drive, less anxiety, desire to improve and so on. It re-ignited the flame in me, the fervor. Although the benefits and the intensity are different for every guy, I don't think anyone has anything to lose by doing it. It helped me with social interactions, with studying, with reading, with dealing with my problems and having the guts to face them and stand up to people.

Damn long wall of text I puked out, but it felt good to let out some of this, since I rarely talk about my past and my problems.

Really I've only known about the detriments of porn since I started out here. I've definitely cut back on it alot, but going completely without is very daunting. I hope the ban this stuff in the future

I started on the EasyPeasy method, but never really tried it because I found its requirement (keep cooming) intolerable.

Instead, I turned to God and the Catholic Church. I went to Mass every Sunday, turned up whenever Confession was offered, and got my hands on a little prayer book. I took out my rosary, and obtained another one, and went to Confirmation classes. Pray for strength, and the Lord will give it as He knows you need.

I found that keeping a pair of rosaries on your person and praying the rosary daily makes an excellent defense against the coom, but I would sometimes lapse in my prayer discipline, then coom. Also added a prayer to my guardian angel, St. Michael, and my Confirmation Saint, Stephen of Hungary.

Then I got Confirmed early in May, and the gift of the Holy Spirit has seen me through many temptations. The war is not yet over, but it might be won.

tl,dr: Get a prayer book and rosary, pray the rosary, get Confirmed.

Not OP but it didn’t really work for me. I’ve read it twice now and the only time I ever felt like not masturbating was WHILE I was reading it, which is the opposite of what the book told me to do

2
HingusTheBungus 2 points ago +2 / -0

The problem with EasyPeasy is that it insists upon itself, has stupid terminology, and doesn't actually MAKE you stop cooming. Every time I had a long streak of not cooming, even during that Just Jesus July I advertised when I first joined (Btw be ready for Just Jesus July 2021!), the words "YIPPEE! I'M A NON-USER" never came up. EVER.

I was slowly losing interest in porn in my early 20s. What made me put a lid on it and weld it shut was corporate cybersecurity training at my first big-boy job. In that class, I learned that internet porn is a minefield for ransomware attacks. Because most people are ashamed of looking at porn (especially on their work computer) they are more likely to pay the ransom rather than asking for help to remove or recover from it. Ransomers know that so they tend to put their software on porn downloads, or anything you can download that's in the legal gray area. The fear of having to tell somebody "Well, I thought it was tranny porn but it was ransomware instead" kept me away from those sites.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

I heard at a very young age, say age 15 or so, that fapping had neagtive consequences. Maybe a year or two later, I started hearing bad things about the porn industry.

Most of the negative consequences though, turned out to be old wives' tales, but the seed of negativity had been sown. And since I first starting hearing bad things about porn, other, equally impressively negative facts about porn entered my brain.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

To a level I'm, for now, reasonably content. The biggest how is that, as with everything that requires will power think to yourself "if I don't do ______ now, it's not so bad." Then I'd physically get up and do something else.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

u/Settrigh has essentially the same take here as I do, and has a comment well worth reading here, so I'll refer to it.

I grew up in an era where fap material was magazines and the sears catalog. This shit online absolutely has to rewire kids’ brains. A male is full of piss and vinegar from 13 to 20 or thereabouts so you’re gonna need to rub it out sometimes but for the love of God stay away from the porn, kings.

Here we go.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

Ever since I've discovered what porn was, I had questioned why people even like it. Seeing people have sex, or even seeing nudes, has always disgusted me, not only morally but also in terms of my tastes. Fapping, on the other hand, is something that I have issues with, but I do it anyway. I wish it didn't feel as good as it does.

Of course, as I've said above, I don't watch porn. However, I have a fetish, and that fetish is anime girls flipping the bird.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

Honestly, I wouldn't even say that I'm truly addicted. That's like saying I'm addicted to junk food. I'll have it whenever I can, but a few days without it is fine. I don't coom on vacations.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

Why are you even asking this? Nofap is how we all should be living. The only reason why I haven't been doing nofap at home is because I don't feel like it, and I'm not exactly the best role model for anything. If you have a coom addiction, especially if it involves looking at naked people, STOP.

Yes, anime girls flipping the middle finger. It started in late 2018 when I was browsing TV Tropes and found the page for some anime called Pop Team Epic. I saw it, was repulsed, it haunted me for a month, I came back to it, and I fell in love with it. I started to collect fanart of the show. Later on, I branched out into getting fanart of any anime I could find (and Touhou) where the female characters were flipping the bird. I probably have around a gigabyte of images on my Kindle. Only one has nudity, and even then she has no nipples.

(Okay, that last sentence was a lie. I edited one of the images I'd saved to add a clipart ballsack to one of the PTE ones because I thought it was funny.)

I'll admit that I have noticed for me, my porn usage is tied to how bored I am and how often I am outside of the house.

April 2019 to March 2020 was a great stretch for me, as I was very busy. I went to work 5 days a week that took up 9 to 10 hours a day when you include overtime and transportation, and I tried my best to occupy my time with activities. I remember that at that time, it seemed like the only use for my apartment was a place to sleep. I remember going a fortnight on various occasions without masturbation because I never had time to do it.

College was the worst when it came to porn consumption. While there were periods like what I listed above, I remember that with Reddit I was constantly getting porn in my feed and that was bad. In my freshmen year, I remember this nerd telling me his goal was to get a girlfriend, and I told him I preferred porn and alcohol over women, who were still rather foreign to me at that time. That nerd ended up dating a hot chick for a few months, while I was abusing alcohol and getting some of my first black outs.

I do count myself "fortunate" in that I was a late bloomer and didn't start looking at porn until high school, and even then it was only photos. I never really got into hardcore stuff and don't like videos with men in it. I also never would watch it for too long either. It was always a short session and that was it. Porn hasn't really interfered with my goals all that much either (or rather, when I have set goals, it doesn't get in the way. Perhaps the minimal time that goes to porn consumption could go to other things, but that is something else). I also lost interest in it when I was dating girls for a long enough time. I think I started putting a lot of sexual energy into those relationships, but that's a different problem.

Now that I live a solitary life, I do see how imperative it is to stay occupied with other goals, but most importantly going outside and living life. I will be returning to the office soon, and will be taking road trips once or twice a month starting in July, which will also keep me out of my apartment. I got volunteer activities, the gym, rec sports, Spanish classes, and reading to keep me busy, and thankfully porn does not get in the way of those.

One thing that I want to do to curb porn consumption is forbid it on certain days as a start. I also will just know that some days it will be a bad idea because it will be out of boredom, which is where I think it starts to be a real problem. Sometimes the urge just strikes, but to do it when the urge is not there is bad.

My advice:

Delete Reddit app and get off it if you haven't already.

Venture out into the world

In your solitary time, occupy yourself with other things. Do not masturbate or watch porn out of boredom.

Be careful with how you masturbate. Myself and other that I know have dealt with a problem where you can't orgasm from vaginal sex due to the pressure and speed that you are used to from masturbation. I know a guy who lasted 3 hours because of this, and another who didn't climax at all, and this was both their first times. I've dealt with this on multiple occasions. Don't let it happen to you. Slow down and lighten the grip and abstain as much as you can.

And lastly, don't view it as the end of the world if you relapse or whatever you want to call it. Just move on.

I started around age 11-11 when (shocker) I had a fancy new smartphone my parents had bought me. I used to stay up until late at night watching Jewtube and at the end I would search something like "hot nude girls". It didn't help that some kids at my school knew some info on sex.

The worst part is that in that time no one in my family told me about why porn and masturbation are a sin and why they're harmful. Going to a Catholic school, the only time I remember hearing that masturbation was bad before high school was in a sex ed course, and everyone laughed at it. It's not a secret that in my country many non believing parents bring their children to Catholic schools because the education is better and free of charge.

Later on I began to hear more about this things and I finally found out why masturbation and porn are evil. In the process I also found out that things like contraception, homosexuality, fornication and divorce are sins, which my (lukewarm Catholics at best) parents also didn't teach me and my Catholic school barely mentioned. I'm still in the process of quitting, and I use the man don't fap app, so please pray for me.

Ultimately one of the main reasons why satan seems to be winning the culture war is because of education. Religious schools more often than not fail to mention that homosexuality, fornication, etc are sins, and if they do they don't mention the underlying principles of why they are wrong. On the other hand public schools are increasingly indoctrinating children into accepting and celebrating these evils.

Parents must never forget that they have the main duty to teach their children and raise them properly, or else the satanic culture will do it for them.

At around age 15 I realised that porn is bad so I stopped watching videos and only wanked to images. It was 18 months ago when I realised that all porn is bad for you and I've been trying to quit since.

I've read the easy peasy book 5 times and each time it works for a week or so, then I begin to masturbate without porn, then I see something arousing and later masturbate to it, then I slowly sink back into using porn. Currently I'm around 5 days of neither porn or masturbation.

I think for me it would be necessary to do NoFap. I haven't gone long enough to feel many of the effects people talk about, I just don't feel shit, unlike when I relapse. I've found it feels easier when I don't have any caffeine.

I like to budget it. 1 coom (no porn) per week. Works for me and doesn't really take time away from other objectives.

BasedRoach 5 points ago +5 / -0

About 5 years ago my friend made me delete my porn archive which was about 4 TB. I don't think I am free of it and am actually wondering if I'll ever be. It is so easy to get back on it. Even easier to relapse than cigarettes because you don't even have to leave your house to do it. The only thing that you can do is to busy yourself with other shit and spend as much time outside as you can. I know I'd be checking some shit out if I'm sitting on my computer as I don't even enjoy video games anymore. My last bad experience was last year and I fell into the realm of porn video games while we were on lockdowns. With story and sandbox elements I sometimes played those games until morning light. It's far more addictive than actual porn. I pity any soul who falls prey into it.

ImperialTeddy 5 points ago +5 / -0

Don't forget: each time you coom and there isn't a woman with you, you're dumping tons of youthful energy, wrapping it up in a tissue, and flushing it down the toilet as if it means nothing to you.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

When I was around 11 or 12 I had already been addicted for a few years and had started having problems as a result such as frequent headaches and genital pain after that I tried to was up on it but not stop immediately

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

Not entirely but I've managed to go for weeks without coming and I don't believe I've done it for 2 days in a row that often

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

Most definitely I've had much clearer thoughts and the longer I go without it the easier a time I've had socialising, even if the mental effects are just a placebo it hurts less when I piss so that alone makes it worth it

A few years ago, I guess. I noticed it made me tired, absent-minded and overall anxious. I also noticed that, when I didn't fap for a while, I would feel more clear-headed and like I could do what I set myself to do.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

Not really. At most, I've stayed around a week without fapping, but would always relapse. I hope to cut it away soon.

  1. I realised fapping isn't good a couple of years ago when I noticed that the day I fapped I had troubles falling asleep, and felt like garbage the next day. But that just made me shift my fapping session to Friday and Saturday only to have recovery time. Putting software and DNS blocks didn't help as I'd just disable them when I got in that animalistic state of mind.

  2. Managed 4 months nofap thus far, my record is 6 months so hoping to beat that at least. You know those posts saying "just stop being depressed lmao"? Well that is what I did with fapping. When the weekend rolled around I just thought to myself "I won't fap today". The first couple of weeks are the hardest, but my job involves sitting in front of a computer all day so my sex driver isn't exactly all that high. The couple of urges I had early on I managed by finding something to do that doesn't involve a computer. Clean the house, go for a walk etc. Just be away from the internet. Also avoid provocative sites. I decided to visit 4chan couple of days ago and it's mostly pornposting. Absolute dump these days.

  3. There is definitely a benefit to it. For me at least having mental clarity more often is a huge benefit, just need to cut the booze now. Think also of the time savings, how many hours you browse through thot sites and open 30+ tabs just to find "that video".

Crockett 4 points ago +4 / -0

It wasn't until about a year ago that I realized I had a serious problem.

I've struggled with motivation and focus for most of my adult life. I didn't really make the connection between that and fapping until some pretty bad weeks, when I did basically nothing else. Nothing other than fapping felt worth doing. It's a very depressing state to be in. Finally I woke up to the real problems I was having.

Before then, I'd considered myself to be relatively modest when it comes to masturbation, and didn't think much about ill effects. But looking back, I had done some pretty disgusting things for years. It's embarrassing just to think about them.

One problem for me is that most of the "viewing" happened in my imagination. I thought it was "safer" because I wasn't even watching videos or anything. But frankly, the stuff I can imagine is way more deranged than anything they can put to film with a porno's budget. Worse, it's harder to give up on something that you can see in your head whenever you close your eyes.

Something that contributed to my realization that I had a problem was reaching an age where the physical effects were starting to catch up with me. Diminished sensitivity and difficulty getting and maintaining an erection were the big ones. Then I noticed my jizz getting more watery when I'd been at it a lot, and that honestly scared me.

Since I realized the problem, I've been struggling to cut it out entirely. I've done well at times, poorly at other times. One thing that has happened is during a long streak, I'll start to fear that the only reason I'm succeeding is because my sex drive has been destroyed by my habits. Then jerking becomes a matter of proving I haven't lost it.

It's rather startling the effect jerking off does have on my mood and mindset. Maybe it's because I'm getting older and don't recover as quickly, but now that I'm paying attention, there's clearly a period of at least 24 hours where I feel shitty and lazy. The drop is even more pronounced if it's been more than week since my last relapse, even if I wasn't feeling particularly magnificent before.

More recently, I've made another significant observation. My other major addiction is scrooling. You know, reading and commenting endless crap, here or other forums or imageboards or instagram or whatever. What I've realized is that I can replace one addiction with the other (and that that's what I have been doing many of the times I've "done better" with one). But that doesn't really help because they both suck. So that's my current challenge, but at least I've identified it.

By the way, this thread is well timed because this has been a rough week for me. I broke harder than I have in probably 6 months, and I feel like shit. I probably wouldn't have shared all this if I didn't feel like this confessional was so perfectly timed.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

I started masturbating at around 10 years old, and gradually got exposed to more and more degrading porn. I think I first realized it was detrimental when I asked my girlfriend at the time (around 18 years old) if I could slap her and call her degrading names during sex. She was visibly hurt, and reluctantly agreed, so I did it and felt like shit afterwards, and realized I had picked that up from years of porn.

Have you been able to free yourself from coomer brain?

To a degree. Going even a few days without PMO is enough to significantly change my tastes in what I find attractive in a woman and what kind of sex I want (goes from very rough and degrading to slow and romantic).

Is nofap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it?

It's definitely not BS. I remember the first time I went 3-4 days with no PMO, I got really horny, but not like anything I had ever felt before. It was a full body experience, and I felt almost uncontrollable. I also am happier, more energetic, more talkative, and more optimistic when I don't PMO.

subbookkeeper 2 points ago +2 / -0

doing nofap was the moment for me. I had a roster of Girls at the time so that really hammered home the lesson of how easy it was so I honestly think I really got lucky and didn't really struggle to do it for a few months.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

Around the time I got hit by the incel blackpill. It was also within the intersection of my decision to start self-improoooooooving via working out. Something I never tried before because I was stuck in the false dichotomy of being a nerd and that meaning I also couldn't exercise or be athletic. The final nail on the coffin was when I got my first real job and realized how absolutely dumb and uncertain the office people I idolized as a teen really were.

This all culminated in a lowering of my expectations for humanity. I then quit pornography and decided to learn healthier ways of stress relief. Since I no longer cared much about what others thought about me as I once had, I no longer felt anxiety over losing my temper and getting excommunicated from society.

I guess another minor component of it was seeing an NTR hentai once that really hit close to home and made me feel like a piece of shit. After that, I couldn't really look at myself in the mirror anymore.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

The hardest part was the huge drop in energy. After quitting the coom, I can no longer stay awake any later than 10 or 11. It makes it really hard to hang out at night, but I don't regret it.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

Life is a painful struggle that gets worse as time goes on. Getting addicted to dopamine in any form may provide short-term relief, but it ultimately weakens you in the long run. Physically, I don't know. But psychologically, masturbation addiction is very damaging.

“There is nothing to be ashamed of in enjoying your food: there would be everything to be ashamed of if half the world made food the main interest of their lives and spent their time looking at pictures of food and dribbling and smacking their lips…. We grow up surrounded by propaganda in favor of unchastity. There are people who want to keep our sex instinct inflamed in order to make money out of us. Because, of course, a man with an obsession is a man who has very little sales-resistance. God knows our situation; He will not judge us as if we had no difficulties to overcome.”

I never voluntarily watched porn. I haven’t coomed a day in my life. My secret? I never started in the first place.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

I remember dating a beautiful frenchgirl who had been my girlfriend for abut half a year and saying that the best present she could give me would be a threesome with another girl. I remember trvelling with an italian girl whom I was infatuated with to London and coming to Spain, having sex with a girl in a park and coming back to London to ask the italian girl out. I was a complete mess and It's not porn's fault that all this degeneracy took place, but porn contributed to it. It's spiritul poison in the same way that God is spiritual healing. May God aid me in this battle, for I believe in him with every fiber of my being and want him to transform me.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

I have before. I have gone wit more than 90 days without fapping or porn but at the moment with stress of University,finding a job and making my girlfriend happy I have fallen to this tentation a couple of times in the last two weeks.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

Nofap superpowers exist. You're gonna get stronger and more awake because you stop fapping, colours will seem brighter, life will be more productive, more meaningful and hopeful. It will be a small change that snowballs into greater improvements that can lead you on your path to greatness. Improving your life in this aspect will help you not lose your faith to God.

Thanks for readingbrothers. Take care and goodnight.

  2. Mostly. If an irl girl was throwing herself at me I would have a rough time turning that down, but Ive completely cut porn.

  3. NoFap is useful for breaking from porn and coom addiction, but unnatural in the long term. Occasional, porn-free masturbation is natural. I dont know that its beneficial but I dont believe it to be detrimental. I believe NoFap can also be helpful if you are pushing to get a woman- a few weeks/months can be a great motivator to get a girl, and I think women can sense when you arent cooming, and think its more attractive. I dont think that they know what they know, but its there.

I am learning to quit porn since during my teenage years I have been recently learning to quit porn through the easy peasy method. Gone on a porn diet, and stopped jerking off

Try it out:

I do not know if saying this much is a good idea.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

Porn has always been quite gross to me but only the real life stuff at first. I have not ever coomed to real life people having sex. Even at my worst. That has always been way too disgusting for me. The thing is, I started cooming after about 2 years of looking a pornography. I did not want to have to deal with the cleanup of semen. While real life stuff was off the table for me, all kinds of drawings were. I ended up cooming to very bad stuff but the shock was reduced because of the fake nature of the drawings. It is quite sick.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

Ooh. Not yet. I do not desire to do it or even think about doing it. I just end up one way or another doing the deed. I always end up going 3 or 4 days and then coom 3 times in a day at the end.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it?

It seems to be quite beneficial. Even just by getting rid of coom thoughts.

When did you first realize porn and fapping are detrimental?

I saw 16chan.xyz's /pol/ threads and read threads about how the redpill was supposed to improve you. One such issue that caused the redpill to produce incels instead of knights and warrior kings was porn addiction. I realized that was the path I was going to descend into had I not taken action, and thus, now I fight the cum demon, with many losses but a hopeful victory in the end.

Have you been able to free yourself of coomer brain, how?

Not yet. I will, but I currently haven't. It's hard and tense, but man does it feel good when the first three days pass by and you're suddenly cruising above the grappling hands of the cum demon's realm.

Is no fap a load of crap or is there something beneficial to it? Feel free to voice your opinion.

Nofap is good, but it's not magic, at least in terms of gains. Many jacked guys coom a fair amount and many incels don't even bother fapping because of ED. The main benefits of nofap are that it keeps your mind focused and sharp, it increases testosterone from pent of hormones in the testicles, and plenty of nutrients and minerals like zinc are retained. However, it won't make you go super saiyan and the physical benefits really plateau at day 7, after which the benefits are mostly mental.

I know this isn't part of the questionnaire, but I must give a warning to any aspiring parents here: DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILDREN UNATTENDED ON THE INTERNET. You're probably going "Duh, no shit Sherlock." But the reason I say this is because if your kid ends up going deep enough, your kid may not just be a porn addict, but also end up developing a horrific fetish, maybe even worse than the one I caught at age 7.

When I was a little boy, earlier youtube was basically my third parent, since my parents either napped or went to work. I watched plenty of comedy gold, plenty of cool Newgrounds animations like SMZ and stuff, but it came at a price. One day, I was frolicking around when I saw some video about cookie cutter MS paint sonic vore. If you know what I'm talking about, then surely you know just how fucked I must've been. Long story short, I ended up getting a stupid fucking belly fetish from a canadian pedophile on JewTube who got chewed out by a baste black guy named "CuringCancerComics".

I must add though: I've long since improved my "taste" before I even first nutted, so no matted how how fucked I get, I'll never coom to well, furfaggotry or even that stupid deviantart sphere shit associated with well, inflation.
