Masturbation; Care To Join Me?

Recommended Posts

Well I've a few spots atm, but I think thats more diet and acne related. Seriously my skin over the summer was awful. I'd have nearly 4 or 5 new whiteheads every morning. I started using H&S. The first week or so was awful but after that it was great and has been. Breakouts are controllable and with better diet and reduced masturbation my skin is becoming closer to when I was 12. My main problem is those f-ing red marks after breakouts! I'd recommend it if your skin is very bad. I wouldn't if your somewhat clear in case it puts you a few steps back...you know?

YES the redmarks!!! dude i hate them i had bad acne like blemishes all over my cheeks and now i have redmarks all over which still look like blotchy blemish it SUCKS.. i pretty much only have like minore active pimples now maybe like 10 pimples all over the face scattered, but the redmarks are so bad man it sucks. i do also still get some whiteheads too! i dont know how to stop them, but all i know is that the first 2 days i started using H&S i broke out in white heads really bad and i stayed cleared away from it since then

Damn, I'm pretty much the same man. I've like 5 active spots which are "dying" but I'm expecting a breakout after fapping yday. And I've LOADS of red marks. I wouldn't forget about H&S. Just in case things get worse for you (hopefully not)...it takes a while to get used to it but it's great after a while.

Almost end of day 1 for me. Easy today. Watched porn but didn't stroke once! Role on day 2 :)

I'm gonna stick with it too dude. I'm starting school up again on Monday and sh*t is gonna get serious with that now so I won't have time for wanking haha! Stress could cause breakouts but I'm gonna stay calm.

Day 1 is officially down, I'm going to bed right now. Anxious about what my face will be like tomorrow....=/

Day 0 once more :D

Aw man tough luck, start again man and try and hold it out. Once you get passed day 1 it gets easier with each day. And think of the reward of clear skin :)

Day 2 just started for me. Went into the mirror and my face is looking pretty good. No breakouts YET from wanking. And not even the sore ones that take a few days to surface. I'm pretty optimistic I could escape a breakout. I know the next 2 days are the killer days but still. Have a good day :)

Day 2 almost done (here anyway). Going for my shower in like 20 mins. No problems today at all. And my skin is looking decent enough. Tomorrow or tuesday I'm expecting a few spots but I'm still staying positive! Keep up the good work everyone :)

day 5 going good SCREW JACKING IT I NEED CLEAR SKIN

im taking it slowly with the 'not washing face' technique so far what i do is i wash my face but i completely stay away from the forehead only water goes there, my forehead is the most oily of my whole face and nose, i have maybe 3 pimples on there right now and a good bit of whiteheads that you cant see just feel since before the regimen.. so far i havent broken out more at all so if this goes well im going to carry it on throughout my whole face in steps just like this.

good luck with school man i hope you dont have any breakouts i was so lucky to not have acne when i was in school i would kill myself if people saw me with my face like this.. although i have a new job interview tuesday saywhat.gif so im looking at it as "well its a new start and no one knows me here so ill just deal with it" i hope i dont get more severe break outs if i get the job.. good luck to both of us bro!

^Is it not day 1 for you? You said it was day 0 for you yesterday.

Day 3 going well so far. I think (not certain) I feel a pimple surfacing by my chin. But I'm shocked by how little pimples I have so far. Got some study to do tonight so Day 3 will soon become Day 4 with no problems....keep at it guys :)

Hah, no I didn`t try to pull a fast one on you.

It was about 2 am yesterday morning, I had not gone to sleep yet - so I still count that as the day just before.... shifty.gif

And on out of curiosity, what goes through all of your minds when you decide to break your commitment?

For example, in my head I repeatedly tell myself something along the lines of putting it off until a new checkpoint comes around to start fresh from (school semester ending, Christmas, new years, new school semester starts, etc.). Also, I try to convince myself quitting masturbation is stupid, and look up reasons why I should actually be doing it (whatever answer you want in favor of what you`re looking for, you`ll find it online). It`s not a bad thing, though it`s exausting on your adrenals, and I would just like to give it a try for a while then see how I feel for the hell of it.

Day 4 is going pretty good. I've got a pimple on my chin but it isn't that painful and looks to be dying. I've got a few whiteheads on my nose but thats to do with stress from school plus I've a bad habit of touching my face (one of the biggest causes of acne for me). Yo man, imo whiteheads are caused by oily skin, touching your face and having dirt on your face. I can vouch for all of them....maybe try exfoliating??

When I want a wank, I just think of how it could effect my face and I just stop...

day 7 went by easy..

i feel like i dont get many new red pimples but ive been getting alot of more whiteheads still and they original ones havent left yet.. what gives??

Day 2

ay bro i noticed a little while back you tried the water only regimen how did that go for you?

I think I started on the water only regimen for about 2 weeks or so, then decided to stop washing altogether. I believe that was around 3-4 months ago, and I've noticed a bit of reduction in oil (I used to get a thick layer of grease on my entire face within an hour of washing), as now my cheeks aren't oily, and while my nose/forehead are still quite oily, it usually takes until the end of the day until it becomes obvious - even then I think it's only about half as oily as it used to be (which still makes my face look wet, but not as thick as it used to be). I noticed I hardly ever get acne on my cheeks any more, and even when I do - it's only a few bumps from shaving.

My oily areas and temples are quite clogged, and have gone through a hand full of purges, but they're getting better. I notice if I pop a pimple, it heals faster than it used to probably due to no irritation from cleansers.

I'd say I'm about half way altogether from what I used to be, my face used to be extremely f***ing uncomfortable, it would feel irritated and tight if I even moved my forehead, I had extremely dry skin that would develop a thick layer of oil on top. Now it feels about half as uncomfortable.

A number of people who have stated they had my skin condition of extremely oily and dry clogged skin, said they began to notice it truly turn around at 6 months to a year of water only or nothing at all.

A week ago I decided to start using moisturizer twice daily (CeraVe cream), I just dab the oil off my face, apply a thick layer and continue not to wash. Sounds pretty disgusting, but it's a matte cream with great ingredients for the skin. I got this recommendation from a Rosacea support site with a member claiming it was a "cure" for the condition, along with acne and oily skin. At this rate by the summer time I'm sure my skin will restore to the condition it was in prior to getting involved with harsh cleansers and acid's/exfoliant's.

this is funny thread.

only reason i jack off cause i don't have a girlfriend and it makes me happy before i go to bed lol. i sleep like a king.

but yeah i tried giving it a rest for like two days then i failed. saw a hot girl at store with little shorts on and was like damn that did it for me to fail.

mild acne and marks is killing my confidence to get a girl but wacking doesn't seem to make my skin worse. you will all get laid sometime so am thinking it's genetics and your diet.

^Getting laid isn't the problem. There are plenty of guys in my school with acne worse than me and have girlfriends. I could get laid every weekend with an average girl but I just want clear skin for confidence and to get with the hottest chicks. Which I know I can get with clear skin...

^Great to see that a regimen is working for you man! Great stuff :D It's interesting you bring it up because I only wash my forehead with water and it's always been the clearest of my face.

Day8: It's going only ok. Few tiny whiteheads around mouth but thats probably due to the "testosterone spike" after 7 days abstentation. But it's been a great first week. I can't complain at all :)

day 11

piece of cake!

yeah bro i was getting a few whiteheads around the bottom lip more towards the chin area when i started over with no jacking it

they are finally looking like theyre dissappearing though!

i think no wanking and my water only and sun light is going to clear my acne im so excited!! i hope im not let down lol..

oh yeah ay bro if you notice that your forehead is always clear without washing maybe thats a sign! thats how i started it off lol you should try not washing man really read about the acid mantle. the soap you are using is more than likely hurting your face even more! it wasnt until i made my log that i truly understood th acid mantle. i did alot of research on it and for real i searched all facial soaps they are all alkaline meaning ph 8+ theres only a few that are acidic and naturally you dont want a soap thats TOO acidic for your face either. water is neutral ph 7 this doesnt harm the face at all. i think our pimples are mainly from irritation because when you irritate acne it spreads bacteria across the face and give you even more blemishes. it makes PERFECT sense bro. *Steven m jacobson that was on this abstinence post with us a few days back wrote a good forum post on the acid mantle. check it out and then check out some of the research on the acidmantle its self. it could be life saving bro!

Wow. I'll definitely consider it so. I've always heard about the acid mantle thing but didn't think it was that serious. Thanks bro. Damn I might actually start the water only thing. It's worth a try. I haven't much to lose :)

yeah dude i didnt think anything at all of the acid mantle at all but i did research and the acid mantle itself kills bacteria by itself! because its acid layer on the face already. and every soap out there completely strips the acid layer and thats why our face is un able to fight the bacteria of the acnes!
