I will say in advance that it depends on different people and how much porn has messed up your brain. But when you watch porn, lets say a 30 min video and do not masturbate, your brain want you to look for more. And the more you search porn categories for example, the more you see videos you consider weird. With so high dopamine level the brain wants you to release that chemical, like ejaculating for a a couple of porn actors performing on set in front of a camera. So watching porn over time without touching yourself will make you lose control, believe me.

I used to think that I could just watch porn and keep myself from mastubating, but I found out that it was just my addict brain tricking me back into the addiction

I have tried this many times.
I planned to watch a porn and decide not to fap.
And this method worked also,i managed somehow not to fap,but after some time(30 min to 1 day) I again looked at porn and as always i fapped.
So my brother don’t try this,nofap means no porn. If you decide just not to look at this dirty thing “porn” then you will be successful definately.
All the best

Just feel the regret and low energy,you used to feel after fap. I think that’s the thing which can pass on urges. And keep yourself busy,that is the most important thing.

Of course it will come up on Facebook occasionally and a small watch isn’t bad and also if your friend sends you a funny Porn video then it’s ok. Just don’t get into watching it more than about 10 minutes man.

That is what we all think. I guess this is a common habit of us addicts. “Just a little won’t hurt”, “It’s a meme, it’s not porn”. No my friend, that is how it all begans. I will tell you my example. I am currently on 39 day streak. One of my friend send my a comedy porn, not too much revealing but enough for a guy who has not a single peek at anything for a month to engage him. I watched that 2 min video 4 times. I didn’t know why. And then today, I was watching an informative video on YouTube, suddenly in my fucking recommendation, a video of a doctor examining a woman (I won’t say more than That) came up. I just clicked on it. A harmless act. I watched the whole fucking video. After I was done with the video, I came to a startling realization. WTF am I doing. This is exactly what edging means. First it will start with a small gif, then a small comedy porn, then an “informative” video on sexual body parts, and next thing you know, boom!! you back on that website which shall not be named (it rhymes with gornhub) and possibly back to whacking off your monkey. So,it doesn’t matter how strong you are, you are not stronger than your own brain.

Absolutely not recommended… Man… I would like to ask you a question. Why would you watch porn if you want to stay away from masturbation??? I tried this technique a lot of times… but failed every single time…Try staying away from everything that can lead it to masturbation…

Ruins the basic essence of why you’ve started this whole thing.
During things that pleasure us (for eg: porn, masturbation) our brain releases a lot of Dopamine. Now in our body we have hormones and we have receptors where they act. The more a hormone acts on a receptor, the more the receptor ‘gets used to it’ and requires a higher stimulus the next time to act. This is called habituation and it’s true for any addiction, just think about it. The only way to reset that threshold is abstinence . Fap or no fap, you will eventually end up giving your brain that much amount of Dopamine because without fapping you’ll end up watching more porn and more so throughout the day.
Sorry for the information overload but this is something I learnt in med school and thought it would be interesting to know.

Awesome man, I liked the way you explained it. I have also been doing some research on masturbation addiction, coolidge effect, how brain structure changes with exessive porn usage etc. Please make a separate topic on the forum to explain from a scientific point of view about this, it would be interesting to read and learn about it.
