Ok Day 0 im doing everything wrong... Lack of sleep, ice cream, MB im not feeling good about this. I have been MBing left n right for the past few weeks, but the thing is im not breaking out WTF? But that doesnt mean i will give up on this because i gota quit the Porn.

ive felt like this alot of times when i mastrubate daily too it might be when sometimes you mastrubate right (having the "i came buckets" feeling)

but some times you do it becouse its just a habbit and feels like shit and you break out and feel shitty

and most 85% of the times its the second way for me .. i came buckets feeling is pretty rare lol

Day 26

Day 24 since mb.

Day 3 since wet dream.

I woke up this morning (for the 5th or 6th time, I'll explain in a bit) and my skin looks like my floor after I mop it with Mr. Clean: ridiculously clean.

I had some acne appear after I shaved yesterday, but this always happens to me, I don't know why yet. I wipe my razor with alcohol before using it, I wash my hands, I use hot water on my face and apply cream generously, then shave slowly. Still, they already mostly dissapered by today.

I've been having trouble sleeping well these past few days, it's like I have a surplus of energy/anxiety for something. I don't know what it is, I train hard for an hour before sleeping and take a hot shower and go to sleep really tired, but then I wake up like 5-6 times a night for no reason.

This always happens to me when I go this long without masturbating, it's like I suddenly have the energy I lacked before to do all the things I've wanted to do, and my body's like: "Yo I'm tired", but my mind's like "NO LET'S GO DANCE SALSA, TRAIN, BECOME A BREAKDANCER, STUDY AND BECOME AN ASTRONAUT ALL AT THE SAME TIME!"

It's kind of nice to have this feeling but I wake up kind of tired in the morning, although it wears off after a while. I think this is my body reacting to the lack of dopamine/relaxed feelings I usually get from masturbation. I'm like a cocaine/cigarette addict put in a white room for 2 months and made to live off water and bread, still it somehow feels good at the same time, it's like my mind is waking up again to what's important in life.

Stop the porn guys, get angry at yourselves and stop the porn, you can all do it.


Go crazy.

Few questions for everyone here.

1. Is almost everyone here a male?

2. If you masturbate but don't ejaculate, does that still count? I see lot of people here say their skin got better when they didn't masturbate for so and so days. But once they masturbate, they notice they break out again. Do you guys find your face still break out if you masturbate but don't ejaculate as oppose to doing both?

3. If you get naughty thoughts and get an erection but don't ever touch your penis, would that still count as masturbating or that doesn't count and thus you continue counting okay now its day 3 i haven't masturbated.

4. Looking at porn or looking at nude photos and just getting aroused but never touching your penis or masturbating. Does that count or not?

5. Do majority of you who get more acne when you masturbate, how long does it take for your acne to appear? Right after it, the next day or within 48hours? If you get acne 3 days later, i assume you don't attribute that to masturbation?

6. Do the acne you get are they usually pimples or cystic pimples? And also where do you guys usually get it at?

7. Has anyone here not look at any naughty picture, porn or gotten any naughty thoughts at all ever and try to not get an erection for say a few weeks to see how it went?

those are a lot of questions...

you seem to worry in regards to what "counts" and what doesnt....

in general you should avoid sustained periods of sexual content...specially porn.....even if you are not masturbating....

that by itself elevates testosterone.....and again...if you keep doing that it may be even worse than just a "quick ejaculation"...

ofcourse ejaculation even if quick will play a role in generating dht......thast why you wanna avoid it....

that should answer most of your "what counts" questions...

i have notice some ppl here (including myself) believe porn being unatural (simply put...bad in a non-religious way).....so thast another reason to quit it. if you have been watching porn for years, your brain has already changed because of it...and only full absitence from watching it and masturbating will help you "reset your brain"...

so for me the rule is simple....avoid explicit sexual content.

yesterday i was in some no-fap forum and some guy posted pics of girls in bikini and what not.....i ended watching them for about a minute, got aroused and what not, but i never "lost it", and dont feel bad. it wasnt porn or anything.

i would avoid looking for those kinds of pics anyway.....

however...getting aroused the natural way (some you see in person) is completely fine....look as much as you want wink.png....but ofcourse have the will to not give in to ur thoughts (get home an fap or something)....so basically...move on.

it depends on how much will power you have....

i avoid all of what you mentioned simply because...i dont see the point....i dont see what i will gain from watching any of that....

in my case i get acne everywhere on my face (except forehead), but mostly on my cheek and chin. I have only been doing this for 8 days so cant tell you my results yet.

but again...doesnt matter...im doing this for other reasons also. (google the benefits of no porn no fap).

mayeb acnefacer or crazyinternetman can give you better insight as they are already 3 weeks in or so.

for crazyinternetman, it looks like it plays a significant role. i read on this forum about others saying that it did play a significant role as well (reputable members). but again....as we all know when it comes to acne...everyone is different

Day 25 since mb.

Day 4 since wet dream.

Still no cystic breakouts. Old scars still healing. Had 2-3 very small whiteheads that appeared yesterday and dissapeared by today, and today have 2 more in different places, but I think they're coming from somewhere else. They'll be gone by tomorrow probably. Skin tone is even and just healthy looking.

To answer Drewfisho1:

1. Is almost everyone here a male?

I dunno, but there was a woman a few pages back who said she breaks out when she doesn't masturbate.

2. If you masturbate but don't ejaculate, does that still count? I see lot of people here say their skin got better when they didn't masturbate for so and so days. But once they masturbate, they notice they break out again. Do you guys find your face still break out if you masturbate but don't ejaculate as oppose to doing both?

Can't tell you for sure since when I stop masturbating I stop it for good, 100%. There are other negatives to masturbating without ejaculating, which is that you keep your prostate excited all the time and cause it to produce lubricant fluid without ever actually releasing it, which is unhealthy and can cause pains in your lower abdomen region over time. I remember this from the early days when I was trying to quit masturbation. It's just an uncomfortable feeling, and your...male member... feels tired all the time.

3. If you get naughty thoughts and get an erection but don't ever touch your penis, would that still count as masturbating or that doesn't count and thus you continue counting okay now its day 3 i haven't masturbated.

I can't stop having naughty thoughts completely unless I get a lobotomy of what a woman looks like and never go out in public again. It's ok to have the thoughts, just don't spend all day long fantasising.

4. Looking at porn or looking at nude photos and just getting aroused but never touching your penis or masturbating. Does that count or not?

No I wouldn't say that's masturbating, although like Andres123 said it raises your testosterone levels at least a bit and it messes with your brain in the long run. You get used to getting aroused by porn and then have problems keeping an erection with a real woman. This isn't true for everyone, but you probably don't want to find yourself in that situation.

5. Do majority of you who get more acne when you masturbate, how long does it take for your acne to appear? Right after it, the next day or within 48hours? If you get acne 3 days later, i assume you don't attribute that to masturbation?

The day after I usually get pretty much nothing, it's 2-3 days later that stuff really breaks out, and after week 1 and week 2 I get bursts of breakouts. Week 3 is usually when everything really starts falling under control.

6. Do the acne you get are they usually pimples or cystic pimples? And also where do you guys usually get it at?

I get small pimples now and again even without masturbating, but masturbation gives me very painful and deep cystic acne, on my face, sometimes earlobes, and a few on my back. When I stop masturbation for 3-4+ weeks I never get cystic pimples anymore, or very, very rarely.

7. Has anyone here not look at any naughty picture, porn or gotten any naughty thoughts at all ever and try to not get an erection for say a few weeks to see how it went?

I think it's impossible to have 0 naughty thoughts :) , but when I don't look at porn for 2+ weeks and then say an attractive woman sits next to me in the bus or whatever, well this is probably not the most gallant thing to say, but I get an erection almost immediately the same way I used to get when I was a teenager. It feels natural and automatic, as opposed to when you watch porn all the time and you have to manually stimulate yourself because just watching the video doesn't do anything for you anymore by itself. Once again like Andres123 said, it takes time for your brain to reset itself, but once it does erections comes much more naturally.

Hope all this answers your questions, this is all based on my personal experiences.


Go crazy.

Day 1

I see people trying to decide what counts and what doesn't count. I just wanted to say that when I say that I've gone X number of days, I mean that I've gone that many days without masturbating or viewing porn, and avoiding getting aroused.

Based on my personal research and my own findings, it's the spike in hormone levels which causes the body to produce extra sebum, causing the pore to clog. I believe that the very act of becoming aroused would spike hormone levels, then masturbating would spike hormone levels even more, causing more sebum to be produced, and causing more acne. By personal research, I mean something I've read in a book that I can't remember the name of.

The farthest I've gone is 21 days. When I failed I ended up with 25 new whiteheads. I also avoid checking in regularly to this site because out of sight out of mind. The less I think about it the easier it will be.

It seems that having unbalanced hormones enables me to get acne, and then sugar, oily foods, and dehydration cause the breakouts. Arousal, stress and lack of sleep all seem to be reasons for unbalanced hormones. But then masturbation alone obviously can cause a breakout, cause I had that massive breakout and my diet was pretty good. Yeah, I don't really know.. I'm just stabbing in the dark.


the terrain on my face is more complicated than anything you've ever witnessed. cool.png

Day 10...

Ok...so I decided to watch some sttuff....(not porn)...and ended up touching myself a bit....

My count still goes because I didnt "edge" or even came close to that.....but, towards the end I was starting to enjoy it....which is when I stopped...

I had this thoughts very rapidly: my brain was telling me..."fuck the streak...this may not afect your acne" lol....then my other part was like..."no remember the other benefits"...but I couldnt recall them!....like they were being blocked....

So I feel "bad" because I was 100% clean until now....but anyway....it could have been way worse too....

Lesson: Dont even bother looking for anything...whast the point...you can only lose (I even said this before....gotta remember this!!). Thats the first step in giving in.

Right after I "walked away" I turned the tv on.....and what do you know......some girls on a reality show dressed all slutty....then my brain says..."hey...remember those porn websites you used to go to??"....I walked away and went for a shower lol....

But anyway...I'm really starting to notice more frequently that tv/ media, it's full of women portrayed as sex......damn it!...doesnt help.

Back to day 1 for me. I'm not that bothered to be honest, I made it like 10 days which is better than last time so next time I'll try go even further.

My skin doesn't seem to have changed (yet) and I've been using Panoxyl for about a week which is really helping to prevent new breakouts. Even if I do get a breakout, it disappears within a day.

Think of it this way. You wack it for 20 minutes and get some acne for a couple days, which is not worth it, time wise. Wouldn't you say you stand a better chance of picking up girls with no acne. at least if you hook up with a girl due to clear skin and blow your load it was worth it for the acne that comes. everyday i walk around i notice people with flawless skin and it's super motivating to not go masturbate.

I wish it was that easy for me too, when I wanna masturbate, sensible thoughts like that disappear from my mind lol.

Went to sleep early on Friday, like 9PM after tiring myself out with some heavy cardio, woke myself up at around 11PM, massive wet dream, felt as if I was wetting myself for 10 seconds, hornier and harder than I've ever felt in my entire life, wacked off like a madman and 2 minutes later I was back asleep until morning. Put everything in the wash in the morning. neutral.gif

Day 3 I guess.

So far, no changes in acne, probably thanks to the fact I had gone 25 days before this without any porn/mb.

Once again, the thing I've observed with these 25 days, is that as long as you don't look at porn, abstaining is 99% more probable than if you do. I didn't look at porn for 25 days, I didn't lose it, even though I did experience moments of excitement and had sexual thoughts. The wet dream thing is a one-time scenario I hope, I've never experienced something so intense in my entire life.
