Yes, definitely. Our sexual energy is the most important energy we have. It's the energy used by people to achieve many things. This nofap thing is a powerful tool and I'm talking about it in this way because nowadays we don't do this naturally anymore. Long time ago, to do nofap was a natural course of life, people didn't jerk off to porn all day long. Porn is the ultimate sexual energy killer. Once this energy is gone, you won't have the same drive to achieve big things. Many of us porn addicts have achieved too little or almost nothing. Many of us have not achieved our burning desire. Many of us lie on the couch fantasizing about a version of us that we never reach. That's why it's crucial to quit porn, it's actually a great idea not to ejaculate at all outside of sex, because with each ejaculation you eliminate energy and nutrients. After 5 orgasms to porn a day, I feel completely drained. Do this every day and then see what energy you have left to do anything in your life. I was watching a podcast with an Indian who has many Yoga gyms. One of the things his Guru told him to avoid was ejaculation. Because this thing is very powerful. I understand sex and reproduction but masturbation and porn are an unnecessary draining of energy, in my opinion, they are a selfish sick of pleasure. When you are not the slave of pleasure anymore, you are powerful. Thanks to PMO binges I've been mediocre for too long and I'm fighting to get the necessary mindset to finally escape. Elon Musk said we spend too much energy on sex outside of reproduction. Maybe he could be seen as extreme, as in "sex for making kids only" type of thing but I understand what he means. This is the guy who used to sleep in the office and work for 18 hours a day or something like this, do you see him doing this while jerking off every day? Or having sex as his no. 1 priority, chasing chicks all day? No fuckin way. Everybody should do whatever they want but what I just said is my philosophy and what's in between me and the life I want is porn. Nofap as a way to unleash the true potential.That’s a good idea, and necessary, to redirect that energy into other activities, creative endeavors, too!
The opposite is often true, if we lapse in PMO, then it’s sapped all our creative energy for a while, and it’s hard to get even important stuff done.
Thanks, man. Yes, I hate to start from day 1 again, it's very depressing. This is tough but I can't relapse to put myself on day 1 now.You got this! I've been fighting some strong urges lately too, but I think about how far I have come (1 month on the first!) and I don't want to start over again to be exactly where I am now. What a stupid cycle to put on yourself! Stick with it!
If I make it to November 2, I will beat my record.
