So I began noporn about a week ago, after failing nofap over and over. Most of my successful nofap streaks began with noporn, and for good reason. I feel like when you go straight from binging porn to nofap, the strong connection between "I think I'm horny" and "I need to watch porn" is still there. Basically, when you get an urge to fap, you also get an urge to watch porn. Fapping without porn for a while and then doing nofap is much easier.

Anyway, the first change to happen immediately was that my sleep went to shit. Absolute trash. Obviously it makes sense, when you tie fapping to porn directly into your bedtime routine, you body will freak out when you suddenly stop. I always thought that as long as you just go to bed and wake up at the same time every night, without interfering by using your phone or other technology, you'd automatically get a good rhythm and stay asleep, but I guess that takes some time.
Basically, I'd go to bed at the same time every night 9 hours before wakeup time. I wouldn't use the phone at all during those 9 hours, only turn the screen on to check the time whenever I woke up. I fall asleep just fine, then wake up within 1-2 hours. At that point, it would take another 50 minutes-2 hours to fall back asleep, then I'd sleep for 1 and a half to 3 hours, and wake up again. Then it'd usually take between 1 and a half and THREE hours to fall back asleep. So in a 9 hour window, I think I averaged about 4-5 hours sleep. Depressing.

But tonight, I think I managed to get about 6-7 hours sleep. Huge improvement. And I noticed that I had really, really good focus today. I was reading something that I before would have kept losing track of what I had read, getting distracted, getting demotivated while reading, reading but not remembering a paragraph but then not remembering a single word I had read, but today, that didn't happen. I read 3 hours effectively today, (with short breaks of course), and I'm really happy that my focus is back.

When I was fapping to porn every day, and also got a decent nights sleep (or, as decent as you can get while fapping right before going to bed), I didn't have focus this good.

If you're having trouble maintaining focus for extended periods of time, give noporn a shot. Next goal is nofap, but I think I'll aim for that after I can actually sleep more than 5 hours consecutively without waking up.

No, I fapped on average 1-3 times per "day", most of the times was after getting bored as fuck 50 minutes after waking up in the middle of the night. Yet, I didn't reach for the phone, I didn't search up porn, I didn't binge and chain it. That's a big one too. I never fapped till sexual exhaustion, wait for 10 minutes, and then fap again, because when you don't use porn, you only get to work with your actual sex drive, and can't forcibly get hard by switching to a different porn video. JFL at all the porn addicts who claim they "watch porn cause they have high libido, bro!". Now ask them how many times they get a boner before looking up the porn, and they don't have much to say.. You can fap and come 4 times in an hour using porn, because of the coolidge effect. You really can't do that without porn.

So no lol, no nocturnal emissions.

I think nofap is really easy once you can get a consistent nights sleep. Then literally all you have to worry about is not fapping when going to bed (should be easy once you're in rhythm), not fapping before getting out of bed, and occupying yourself throughout the day. Fapping is mostly just boredom.

I don't watch porn but I used to fap twice weekly, I stopped that shit around 10 days ago and the biggest issue so far has been wet dreams, they've greatly increased in frequency (which is a good thing) and so I always have to get up at fucking 5 in the morning to change the bedsheets and to shower, and so this further disrupted my already horrible sleep cycle.

I assume wet dreams can happen without an actual "dream" that you remember the next day? But yeah, dreams are also an awesome side effect of quitting porn. I never, ever dreamt while watching porn daily, yet even with this trash sleep cycle, I've had 2 pretty interesting dreams. It kind of gives you something to look forward to when going to bed, seeing what crazy stuff your brain can think up while you're asleep.
Either way, I'll take wet dreams and nocturnal emissions over what I have now any day.

Yeah as an celibate male sexual dreams are the closest thing to sex that you'll experience. It's kind of great actually
