I will be doing semen retention and share my experience will all of you guys to hopefully give some people motivation. I will be sharing my daily life, almost like a diary but I’ll try to focus mostly on my experience with semen retention.
About myself, I have been on this journey for about a year or so and my highest streak is 15 days. My passion in life is boxing and I will try my hardest to make it as a boxer. I am 16 years old. I am determined to go far in this journey and I hope I find some good friends/family by creating this.

You’re definitely taking a step in the right direction. Did you know a lot of the top boxers practice semen retention because they know how powerful it is. Hope you achieve your dreams
Believe it or not, that is how I first found out about no fap/semen retention. Mike Tyson said he abstained from sex for 5 years (during his prime years). I always that that was bad ass so I researched some more and found out about no fap. Thanks brother, I wish the best for you and your journey
I am very new to this whole thing so I will try my best to write everything that happened today.
Streak: 7 days
Today was an overall great day. I had zero urges and was happy all day. The past week was like hell though. I had so many damn urges leading up too day 7. This is because I also decided to quit Youtube as well as porn. I spent at least 5-6 hours on Youtube daily so I finally decided after my last relapse to get rid of it including porn. I have been addicted to porn and Youtube for as long as I can remember and it’s hard to think back to a time I was not addicted to either of these things. It has been a rough week full of urges but I have overcame all of them. I feel like I am evolving day by day if I’m being honest with you. I have done no fap for a long time and have had many streaks but this one feels different than the rest. Maybe it was because I overcame the strongest urges I have ever had. I feel like this forum will help me even more.
Glad you’re better now. Keep going, improve yourself everyday, love people and smile, because that’s what nofappers do. You can be like a champ!
Thanks man! I’ll try my best everyday!
Same thing with YouTube for me. Quitting YouTube has helped me get less urges the past week.
I’m glad to hear man. It might have to do with all of the clickbait thumbnails that everyone posts
I had a really big problem with ASMR, as many videos were extremely sexual and should have been posted elsewhere. I realised I wasn’t watching it for the relaxation anymore, but for the women making the videos. I had to stop, and I have to say, I don’t miss it at all. I’m happy that I stopped watching these videos that were essentially softcore pornography. There’s too much on YouTube that can create urges. There’s also the time wasting aspect, as I spent hours on end, even 7 hours a day recently, on that stupid app! When an urge got triggered by it that day, I decided it was enough.
@Rezboy247 glad that you’ve started this journey this early man. Remember the earlier you start the greater you’ll become. At the age of 16 I haven’t even heard about nofap. This is the time to change your entire life and become the best man. Remember even though you are 16 you are a man and on the path of becoming a powerful man. So when you say each word always remember to follow through that. You can do this. Life is so much better without porn
Follow this when the urges hit.
I actually used to watch same videos everynight to go to sleep and I know exactly what you mean. I’m glad we both realized this sooner rather than later. Also, after I deleted it I realized that I have so much time to do other things that are productive lol
I started when I was 16 as well by the way! We’re very lucky to realise our mistakes this early on in life. Completely agree with @Tagore
Thanks man, I am very blessed that I have learned about no fap this early and I will not let it go to waste. Thank you brother, I will do everything I can too come out on top! Best of luck to you bro
Today started off a little slow. I found it really hard to get up and run but I realized that I am not always going to have a lot of motivation, so after a lot of self talk I got my ass up and ran a 10 minute mile. After this i felt so much better than I did before. I feel like the key to a good day is to either take a cold shower or to run/workout so that you feel energized for the rest of the day. I will now start doing this everyday. Anyways, later I hit the heavy bag for about 6 rounds and honestly I felt so damn good. My footwork and technique was so crisp today and I can feel a lot of improvement. I also had zero urges today and that is because I spent a lot of the day reading success stories of no fap. I realize that urges will come eventually but I am so determined to overcome any and all urges that come my way. Today I also felt super confident in myself which is a new thing for me.

Streak: 9 days strong😤
Today was such a good day. Firstly, I woke up with this really good feeling. Smiling was the first thing that I did when I woke up. It was the first time in a while that I was happy to be alive on this earth. I took that and ran with it. I wasn’t motivated to workout first thing in the morning but I got my ass up and decided to go for a quick run. It was hard to start but once I started running, I did not stop at my usual 10-minute mile but I instead did 1 1/2 miles. I see this ass huge progress because I am getting better every day. Later, I was texting this girl that I haven’t seen since we first met back in middle school. She was like a friend that I had feelings for but I never told her that. Anyways, I decided to ask her if she wanted to hang out and she said yes. We then hung out and honestly we just enjoyed each other’s company. We even got into a serious conversation about life, it was amazing. I am not sure if I like her or if she likes me tbh. She was definitely flirting too tho. It was lowkey, but both of us flirted a little bit. Idk. I don’t wanna ruin what we have but I still do have feelings for her because her personality and looks are a solid 9. I just don’t wanna ruin things but maybe she feels the same way? I am not sure if I should make my move or not. Some advice would be greatly appreciated!
I guess it’s best to bring up the topic with her if you have feelings for her. If she doesn’t feel the same, that’s not something you’ll feel bad about, you’d rather feel exhilarated that you dared to ask. As for losing your friendship, that could be the case, but I can’t imagine a friendship in the friendzone is very nice to have for you. I think you’ll regret if you don’t ask. There’s this one girl I suddenly had very strong feelings for, inexplicably. I still haven’t dared to ask her out, but the feelings are kind of gone lately. Besides, we’ve had literally zero social interaction, and I don’t really feel we have much going for us. I did send her a message congratulating her with her driving license when she got it, but she didn’t really seem interested to talk.
Well, end of ramble. That’s my recent experience, which didn’t go too well. Sometimes I still think I should ask, but I figure she’s probably not right for me anyways.
I hope you make a decision for yourself, and don’t let things go undecided. Either yes or no. Not deciding is the same as saying no.
Thanks man! That helps a lot, I’ll be sure to let you know what I decide for myself!

Streak: 10 days Finally!
So I am not sure if you guys would prefer shorter, or longer journal entries. Just let me know so I can make them shorter or longer. Zero urges today. And I realized that I am only texting people who make an effort to talk to me. Which means I am no longer desperate for attention! I worked out did a lot of school work today so I’m happy about that. Tomorrow I am hanging out with that girl again. She has been super flirty through text so I’m gonna make a move lol. It is a win-win because if she doesn’t feel the same way, we continue to be friends and I have no problem with that. But don’t forget to tell me if you prefer shorter or longer journal entries!
