So far this year, for the 16 days of 2013 so far, I've had: 5 days of no fapping, 5 days of fapping, and then 6 days where i fapped about every other day.
I didn't really notice any improvement in energy or anything, but i was definitely able to be improve my mood more on the days without my hour long fap period...watching some bball or watching some South Park or whatever puts me into a better mood than just fapping for an hour.
So in that way it helps...but i'm not sure if i believe in these stories of people feeling so much more energetic and healthy and confident and all that when they don't fap.
Pleasure and enjoying things isnt something that you are entitled to and cant live without.
I know its tough to grasp the concept of mental discipline, but read about it a little, you might learn something.
Anyway, what I noticed is, the first couple of days you feel great about not beating off, extra energy mood increase, but then afterwards you get used to it, and get a little depressed and mood drops because you're sort of dependent on that new mood boost. And this is where the tough part comes in, not beating off at this point.
The true challenge of all this I think is committing to this as a lifestyle. You'd need cheat days and things as its not realistic to think you can do this for 20+ days everytime. Youll most likely do it once and then return to how you always were. So do this for week or 2, beat off, then do it again etc... i think is more realistic.
Was a pretty rough month, started it off on the tail end of a pretty long fap-free streak from December. On the dates marked with a dot I fell to temptation at least once. Gonna improve on this every month
