Day 0 again, ruined both my no Masturbation and No porn 54 day streak! It'll be interesting to see how this affects my skin as I currently have only 1 active pimple, and if I have a massive outbreak I will know the culprit for sure bscause I havent properly broken out for ages! Anyway back on the bandwagon now - NoPorn - NoFap, anyone want to join me, try to hit 90 days free?

..and if it doesn't work for you, whatever, go crazy....

i can only laugh at this....i think at some point i had a similar argument with someone..and i ended up with a similar comment...i think i said.."go ahead...do it like there is no tomorrow"! lol

anyway....

day 1 here

i feel like something is working....or i had a good month of may. I still breakout but they were milder...and for he first time in a while i had more healing time overall...so im looking better.

from the point of no fap....it was good. i did masturbate a few times, but overalll, my reduction was probably like 90% or so, thanks to my two back to back 12 days streaks.

June however...i havent been as disciplined. My main drive in regards to imporving has been for this one girl, and just this week i got the cold shoulder from her, so i lost a lot of the will.

However, i gotta bounce back.

It's been only one month , and I have to find out if its becuase of all the changes im making in lifestyle, or simply a fluke.

I hope to post again at the end of this month and be 20+ days.

@andres123: Yes I remember when I read that, it made me laugh really hard :D

@The Hornet: I'm on on day 2, I'm with ya for the 90 days (and hopefully more), I used to go head to head with Experiment313 but he's dissapeared :(

@acnefacer: (this is a copy paste from a post I made in "The Regimen" part of the forums a few days ago)

Aloe Vera is usually a very good thing to try, as it has no side effects to my knowledge.

Here's how I use Aloe Vera:

1. I buy an Aloe Vera plant (sorry buddy, I'm gonna cut you up bit by bit so I can look beautiful - don't look at me like that, I know I'm a monster).

2. Make sure the plant is like, normal-sized, not a little bitzy-itzy thing with really thin leaves. If it's as thick as this picture, or close to it, it's fine.

3. Arrive home with your plant. Before going to sleep, grab a knife. Go and cut 1cm to 1.5cm from one of the leaves along its width. If you're just starting at the tip of a leaf you can cut 2-3 cm to have something to work with.

4. Go to a sink with your bit of leaf, things will get a bit gooey. Take the bit of leaf you just cut and slice off the upper flat part of solid green (so you can better access the gel).

See the pic below? Slice off that upper part of solid green without cutting too much into the gel. An easy way to do this is just to cut at one of the sides and then lift the green stuff up and then cut the other part which is holding it. This is a lot simpler to do than I'm making it sound here.

5. Place the newly opened leaf under tap water for 1-2 seconds to clear away the extra-smelly yellow stuff. The yellow stuff is pretty useless, and it smells really harder than the rest of the gel, so you can do without.

OK COOL!

6. Now just press on the solid gel with your finger and then pick some up and spread it all over your acne scars. It will be absorbed by skin in less than a minute and be virtually invisible. You'll still smell it when you turn your head, but it's not unbearable, although I wouldn't go around town with it, since it's not super attractive either.

7. You can now keep pressing on the gel on till it all comes out and put more on your face (it doesn't matter if you overdo it, your skin loves that shit and absorbs it all). You can even rub the leaf on your face. Just make sure to cover all your scars.

8. At first, your scars will get a bit redder, although that'll subside in a little while. In the morning, wash your face with cold water, and repeat the experiment for a week or 2.

Use this technique at night since that's when you can stay the longest time with it on your face without bothering anyone with the smell, plus your body regenrates more when you sleep!

You can apply this to fresh acne scars as well and it'll help create scabs faster and heal faster! Just make sure you clean properly beforehand with rubbing alcohol or spit or whatever works for you.

CAUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aloe Vera gel may leave slight yellow taints on your pillow. While its colourless, it's actualy a very light yellow, even if you wash off the yellow stuff before applying it. This doesn't always happen, but it CAN happen, so don't blame MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

GOOD LUCK!

The aloe vera seems pretty nice to try...but i already spend a fair amount of time on other things......specially doing green smoothies in the morning....my breakfast time is now one hour!!, (preparing, drinking/eating, cleaning up)...before starting I never thought my new breakfast regimen would consume so much time.

anyway....day 1.

@The Hornet: and CrazyInternetMan: Count me in as well. This is the best way to get back into a good serious streak. Timing could not be better for me. I need this.

Nice one Crazy and Andre, lets do the 90! The only way I'm personally ever going to get that far is by avioding anything sexual, for example videos on Youtube, images on Google and certainly no Porn, as we all know the damge that can do to you anyway! I guess I've completed day 1 as I watched Porn and M'bated yesterday night - I'll post every 7 days to update, good luck guys, lets do this!!

Day 17 no porn since from the crazy testosterone surge i had from working out and abstaining/not even looking at a hot pic i shouted alot for the smallest dumb stuff and got like 5 - 7 pimples on the cheeks + my forehead left side is FULL red with pimples i should meditate alot so i can controll that aswell i guess.. it could be also from too much vitamines ..since i havent fapped i stacked alot i eat tons of healthy stuff everyday like tomatoes banana cocumber etc and... helps for the scars but causes pimples when overdone

just bought some aloe vera leaves hopefully it will work for the scars thanks for the info.

Yeah Aloe Vera works especially well to turn open scars from stuff you just broke into nice, solid scabs. Just make sure you expel everything properly and then use rubbing alcohol for a few seconds if you can handle it, then apply the Aloe Vera and not touch the place anymore.

Sometimes it takes a second try the next day if it gets infected, but once it heals up the Aloe really helps form a scab and also make it heal and drop faster than normal.

Try it for 2-3 weeks and older scars as well, like I said it might turn a bit redder for a half hour/hour once you apply it, but in the long run you'll either see effects and if not, no side effects. In the morning just wash it off with cold water, or don't if the smell doesn't bother you leave it there as it keeps working through the day, but sometimes you'll see some of the gel turn into a peel so you have to wash it off or walk around with it on your face.

I guess you'll find out on your own, but make sure not to cut more of the leaf than you need at a time. I did that and ended up wasting mine a lot faster than I needed, a small bit is usually all you need to rub across a large portion of your face.

@The Hornet: yeah absolutely no watching any porn, for me if I do that there's 99% chance I'll end up screwing up, plus other side effects like you say

I would go easy on bananas. I actually dont eat them anymore. I do eat some plantain every now and then, but thast as far as I go with the banana/plantain familly.

If you do have them, try to have them before they ripen. IMO thats a bit better.

Day 36

This streak is not perfect but it's a work in progress, I've watched porn maybe 4-5 times. But I'm gonna slowly cut that out.

As for my skin, it seems to be doing alright. Still lots of room for improvement though. But i still have a lot of time ahead of me.

Anyways this is the highest record I've made, my last being 32 days, and I don't think I'm gonna just give up, 36 days is a long ass time lol.

Anyways good luck on your 90 day challenge guys.

Day 18 no porn tried some 1 hour meditation it works im way more controlled

a huge whitehead turned red-black inside probably blood and its noticabely smaller i put an extremely heated towel on it for 5 minutes it has worked so far for whiteheads alot

@experiment honestly id try to completely stop watching porn/or rubbing it at all its as bad as ejaculation i learned it the hard way my last 26-28 streak now i do a new fresh start which is different from the last one i feel way more energetic my hair stopped falling and looks better etc and its just 10 times better ( maybe alittle over agressive sometimes but its fixable ) if u had blue balls it might be hard to slowly cut it out (for me atleast it was impossible i just kept doing it so i did a last fap to calm it down and started clean with counting no porn days aswell)

Yo Experiment if your skin is doing visibly better don't give up, just treat stopping to watch porn as a different issue to deal with.

If you are an adult than there is no point abstaining right now. It's gonna take a few years of abstaining for the hormones to settle down. The only solution now is accutane, retinoid, good diet, yoga, juicing and girl friend. Masturbation changes the shape of penis and weakens the penile nerves leading to premature ejaculation/wet dreams which is another challenge you might have to deal with later on.

Masturbation changes the shape of penis and weakens the penile nerves leading to premature ejaculation/wet dreams which is another challenge you might have to deal with later on.

I will address two things briefly as I'm short on time right now:

1. Abstaining it's just one of my tools. I do more than that, as I'm sure others do. Regardless, its about finding what works for you.

2. ...."Masturbation changes the shape of penis and weakens the penile nerves leading to premature ejaculation/wet dreams which is another challenge you might have to deal with later on."

lol --> no offense but i found this funny because:

a. It is the opposite. Again, without going into details I'll tell you masturbation (excessive and/or porn induced masturbation) leads to erectile disfunction.

b. even if it leads to "premature ejaculation later on". trust me, NO MAN worries about premature ejaculation as they age.

overall, abstaining its a fairly healthy practice. in fact it also enhances your sexual life (you seem worry about performing). Altho in such case I would call it partial abstince.

Although I appreciate the first part of your statement, overall it is baseless, misguiding (for someone new), and unhelpful for anyone on this thread.

Feel free to read more on the subject, and only then come back if you want clarifications. As it is, it appears that you are saying "something that you heard somewhere". Try to be more factual based on things you have read from credible sources.

I am not against abstination. My point is everyone here seems to abstain for 10-20 days and then jack off which I am not sure will help to get clear in the long run. And if the aim is to clear acne than accutane is the only cure. Everything is a band aid. Than if you are clear having sex is a far better option. Its either you abstain for a long time or have sex.

Me personally if i knew earlier that porn itself and fapping without ejaculating would still be bad i wouldnt ruin my streak and i would be on 50-55 day right now i know its healthy when done in a month but for addicts like me its not a possible thing i would just get back on the daily fap also i know how to controll my wetdreams ive tested it already and it works only when im horny and thinking about a girl all the time going to bed with a boner and having the need to take a piss every 5 minute (so i dont ever drink water after 21:00 thats the biggest cause to wetdream ) + some depression i get a wetdream otherwise i dont

Day 19 no porn I also noticed that my scars turned "glowing" red i dont know if this is a bad thing or it means they are healing will see in time if i dont screw up

No.

This was your original point: "Masturbation changes the shape of penis and weakens the penile nerves leading to premature ejaculation/wet dreams which is another challenge you might have to deal with later on"

I do not have patience to discuss when people keep on changing their thesis as the argument moves forward. Organize your thoughts first.

Needless to say I completely disagree with your ideas expressed above, but I wont bother diving into the details.

I recognize when someone is not worth my time.

Thanks again for your input.

Hope you find something that works for you.

I used some green tea with lemon juice yesterday and it was stinging like hell untill this evening when i took a shower (i did clean it off after half hour of applying it tho it still kept stinging) my pimples became even more red does this mean i have an allergic reaction or that it heals the sht out of them?

edit: even after using aloe vera i got that itch aswell but its not as bad as after using green tea with lemon i am really not sure to continue or not using these stuff

Aloe Vera always gives me a light itch and makes stuff a bit redder for half hour-hour after, that's why I use it at night, but if it goes away after that you can keep using it.

Remember with AV to clear that yellow goo that oozes from under the leaf before you squeeze the clear gel out of the leaf.

The yellow goo really stings and smells the worst.

Day 8 here, I feel like a stallion on steroids.

Update - completed 7 days now, 83 to go haha! Currently have no spots for the first time in maybe even a year or year and a half. And also I have tried using pure lemon juice on my skin before, all I can say is they were very painful times. And another thing, Soya had an effect on my skin, for example Soya Crunchies in Protein bars broke me out bad. Hope you guys are still on course for the big 90 :)

I took accutane for nearly a decade before I discovered orgasms were the cause of my acne. Accutane can be a useful tool, but abstaining is cheaper, safer, more effective, and has ancillary health benefits.

I applaud everyone in here who continues to work towards clear skin through this method.

Well since i live in that shitty place its really hard to find a normal aloe vera (hardly found aloe vera with tiny leaves) they are so tiny that you cant even take that yellow stuff out becouse you cant see it way too small but anyways in my second use i have no more itches

and also btw im on day 4 i screwed my last 18 streak becouse i got cocky (didnt train or meditate and stared at lots of butts) it was so sensitive that i got a hot picture in my mind that i was about to ejac without even touching it and then it was about to blow and i just ended up watching porn 2 hours without touching building lots of tension and finally let myself do it was a hard fight lol

now becouse of that im gonna do some 3-4 d max water fasting with only fruits vegs and water becouse i got some nasty big whiteheads and 2 cysts (that have a risk of scarring) on my cheeks and im sure it will strenghten me more to keep going without mastrubating its risky becouse i might lose some weight but fck if one day i get rid of acne since i have the knowegledge and know how my body gains muscle easily after literally 8-9 years of experimenting experience it wont hurt doing that

also it might clear some heart problems i have becouse that year i got 3 times that swollen sausage fingers on my right hand that were itching like hell and i also had fatigue when running or doing warmups and then sparring in mma classes and hearing so much that it helps its worth trying

it was also the most ive gone without porn i swear from probably 10-11 years old(im 18 now) i havent gone more than 5 days without porn i might have gone 7-9 with no fap but the porn was there all the time and even that 5 days of no porn were a rare thing .. like 7 times max in a year i learned alot from those 18 days now im going to try it harder this time untill my hormones adapt to the change
