Day 5.

 

So I ended a 28 day streak 6 days go and noticed some inconsistencies:

 

My face was irritated (red/dry) and broken out the morning after I masturbated.  I began using a new product the night before (which I discarded) and attributed the painful breakout to both strong irritation + masturbating the previous night.

 

I broke out again this morning.  This perplexes me because todays break out is substantially worse than my breakout from masturbating after 28 days of nofap.  Had I masturbated last night - I would have presumed this to be a direct repercussion of masturbation and so I wondered:

 

When I masturbated once/twice a week - I had attributed all my break outs to masturbation.  Then when I went 4 weeks no fap and STILL broke out - I immediately attributed it to other factors.

 

The fact of the matter is, I'm beginning to think that face would look exactly the same now, regardless of whether I've masturbated or not this past month.

 

I noticed correlations between masturbation + past because I was conscious of them.  If I'm going to search for a correlation - I'm going to believe I've found one.

 

In reality, I can't say I've found much connection yet but maybe 1.5 months isn't enough time.  All I can truly say is - my acne is very stubborn and nofap just gave me something to blame my acne on when it clearly isn't the sole or true verdict.  

 

Perusing photos from the past also revealed that my skin hasn't improved much and still experiences intermittent breakouts and inexplicable moments of improvement.

 

In other words, hoping that simply not-fapping would resolve acne for me seemed too good and easy to be true.  My acne remains an enigma and I do not believe following linear approaches and methods is conducive.  I think the more pragmatic approach would be a more holistic awareness of acne - rather than a black and white, clear cut theory that dictates when someone will break out.

my addiction is so bad that i ve gone a day and a half watching porn nonstop jacking off im about to finish rest 30 sec and again sitting with a slouched backuntill i didnt sleep i didnt eat then i had to go to school after that and that has happened like 5 7 times and its REALLY unhealthy for me so thats a very good reason for me not to mastrubate AT ALL

 

So it sounds like this is more so about a masturbation addiction than an acne solution.

 

 

I've noticed a blatant correlation.  When I was clear - I was getting laid.. a lot.  (I'm still in college)

 

When I would break out, I stayed in, repressed my social/sexual desires.. and masturbated.. a lot.

 

 

First off - Sex did not break me out, I recall how sweaty and filthy I'd feel at 6/7am, still drinking, ordering food with my partner + saw no break outs as a result.

 

 

Correlation isn't necessary causation, something we've all learned in Psych class.  However - I do agree with the negative mental, physiological effects.  Juxtaposing my mentality now with my masturbation ridden past just shows how much less of a horn dog I am.

 

I can't say my acne has improved much from abstinence though.  For now, I'm addressing my masturbation and acne as separate problems and am not going to falsely assume that quitting masturbation is pre requisite to a clear, acne-free face.  

 

I do however think quitting will have subtle holistic benefits on my body that will trigger better physiological response towards my stress, mood, anxiety, chemical responses, thus positively effecting my acne.

 

Just iterating some recent contemplation.

So I purchased Neutrogena Rapid Clear cleansing pads last night to swipe away the remaining few pimples.

 

The results were pretty bad.  I don't know if fapping last night had an impact on this but after showering this morning, I noticed my skin was extremely irritated, reddened, and the cysts/pimples seemed a little more sensitive/swollen (I had rubbed the pads around my face rigorously last night which stung immensely)  There were also tiny bumps all over the red parts of my face.

 

I did not notice the cause for my dryer, broken out face and kept going at it with the pads (I used 4 more).  Boom, the cysts became more swollen and my skin felt rough and awful.

 

I began rinsing my face with cold water repeatedly until the sting went away.  My face is still pretty red with the exception of my nose and ears but the breakout has cooled down.

 

 

So masturbation + this shitty product may have irritated my acne more or it could've been just the pad altogether - take it as you may.

 

Regardless of either, I'm too devastated/traumatized from todays break out to consider masturbating anyways.  

 

I'm gonna go no-fap again and once more report any significant results/improvement from this tragedy

I fapped last night after 28 days.

 

 

I honestly felt extremely relieved after - none of the "face warming up" or pulsating sensation, I simply felt GREAT and refreshed.

 

I went out with my friends right after and had a very energetic night, I didn't notice any irregularities with my behavior or any sensation of rising pimples.  In fact I haven't felt this great in over 2 weeks!!  I was talkative, relieved, alive and definitely exemplified lower stress levels.

 

 

This morning - I have the same pimples I've had before, they've begun to heal a little but nothing new has popped up.

 

Additionally, the ejaculation felt "natural".  I can't explain it, it felt like it was meant to happen.

 

 

A couple months back when I suffered from compulsory masturbation, the ejaculations would be short, a bit dull and feel "forced".  Forced meaning - I'm tired/bored, why am I still squeezing still squeezing my d*** vigorously.  This time around, it kind of "shot up" and "released" and I did it without porn.

 

 

 

I don't plan on going back to masturbating because I do acknowledge its negative effects on holistic health + my mind.  I will practice this maybe once/twice a week.

Day 28 no-fap,

 

the left side of my face is now breaking out.  3 new pimples have risen while the right side of my face is still slowly recovering.

 

Forehead also broke out over night.
