Several sources show that watching porn has adverse health effects in men. Moreover, it is not only the negative health consequences that should be a great concern, but also the hindrance that porn puts on a man’s self-actualization and sexual abundance. The latter issue affects many men, especially men with women scarcity and a lack of social skills.

Why is porn an obstacle to self-actualization and sexual abundance?

Living in the Comfort Zone - You are MISSING OUT on great things!
Many people conform to masturbating to porn and draw sexual pleasure only from their hands and a computer screen. This creates a lack of motivation to get real women and build abundance with women.

The time and energy put into porn can be used to develop yourself as a person, or have the dating life of your DREAMS. If you are willing to take action and step out of your comfort zone, then that guy in the porn movie could actually be you!

A Downward Spiral - Inaction
Many times, porn can be a symptom of inaction or a lack of action. People addicted to porn may also be addicted to other external stimulus that helps them to escape reality.

The great news, however, is that any downward spiral can be gradually propelled into the skies and become an upwards spiral. And the only cure to the problem is in TAKING ACTION.

There are several articles in RSDNation from both instructors and users blogs that provide plenty of information of taking action and building an ecosystem of positive emotions.

This article will tackle how to QUIT porn and CUT any dependence to it.

Quitting Porn Right Now
Assuming you are conscious of any current issues with porn, now the next step is to MAKE the decision of not watching any more porn and COMMIT to that decision.

No Porn / No Fap Challenge
A No Porn / No Fap Challenge consists in not watching or masturbating for either as long as you can or a certain amount of time. Some people find it easier and less stressful to set a certain amount of time that they know they can handle. As long as you eventually quit porn, it is okay.

At first, you will have to go against the momentum of watching porn for years. This can be quite hard at first. Here are some tools to help you in the process:

1. Keep Yourself Busy – Your Life’s Purpose – Your Path as a Man
What are your dreams/goals in life? Go after them shamelessly and relentlessly. At least, go towards them in baby steps. Put passion in your work, activities, or hobbies.

Do anything that will keep your attention away from the fact that you want to watch some porn. Engage in very logical activities like studying. Go outside for a walk and breathe some fresh air. Play some sports. Go to the gym. Read life changing books and articles. Prepare yourself a delicious, healthy meal or snack. Hang out with your friends. Go to a club or bar and have some fun. If possible, stay away from the computer or internet.

2. Draw Pleasure From Other Sources
Make a list of at least ten things that you really enjoy doing. Maybe you like to see the sunset at the beach, or breathe fresh air at the park. What are your favorite sports, hobbies, activities? Who are the people that you like to hang out with the most? Listen to your favorite music. Watch your favorite movie. Have sex. Try out some new stuff like playing tennis or learning a new language!

3. Pat on the back
Give yourself a pat on the back for everyday that you do not watch porn or fap. Draw pleasure from the fact that you are one step closer to your goal, and that if you keep it up like that, you will eventually accomplish not only the challenge but many of your dreams in life.

Using No Fap / No Porn Challenge as LEVERAGE
To take it even further, you can use your challenge as LEVERAGE to live the life of your dreams in terms of abundance with women.

You can tell yourself that you are only going to feel sexual pleasure from true sex. This will put you in a state of constantly questioning yourself “HOW can I get laid or get sexual pleasure?”

If you also commit to not paying for sex, which would be the ideal thing, then you will be going out to clubs, interacting with women, and learning lessons every single day. You will improve faster in cold-approach pickup. You will IMPROVE as a man, and nurture your DRIVE to always be better and self-actualize.

So that is it, a guide to quit porn forever.

I currently have 6 months in a no fap challenge. All of the points above helped me massively in this challenge.

Let me know if you have any doubts or thoughts on quitting porn!

Peace

A lot of people on here hate this no fap B$. Honestly though, you never really know how much it is affecting your life (mood, willpower, intent, etc) until you try going cold turkey for maybe 30 days solid. While it's true not everyone is addicted or has a serious issue, you never know what effect it has on your brain or if you've been treating porn like a hit of a drug. The results can be subtle or very dramatic. 

I think I read somewhere on the reddit no fap that some guy went through a 2nd puberty.... not sure if that's legitimate though hahah

Thanks for the guide. Porn and the fap are absolutely dangerous and I definitely feel differently about the world and myself after falling to the ol' hub. As per your challenge, I'm doing a big 'fuck you' to porn and the fap.

Just so I've got it right then, Porn is bad because it inhibits you from taking action? I can buy that I guess. I got through ups and downs of having either a rampant labido or more of a "take it or leave it" mentality. I guess it's obvious, if I dropped porn my sex drive would go up?

I did that once, when I didn't know about the pick up community, and I can tell that definitely works, I was badder with chiks at that time, almost 0 game, and I came to a point that I didn't know what happen, but an instict pulled me very hard and I picked up a girl. I still don't know how I did it. I guess when we stop Fap/porn  one circuit or instict gets activated and Says " You gotta reproduce, you gotta do it if not your genes are gona be out of existance". I think with that challenge you game will skyrocked with nitro and turbo :P
I found an interesting video that explains a little about pornography, here it is:

One thing that has helped me a lot is drastically reducing my drinking and caffeine intake.  Just curious if anyone else gets horny from caffeine?

Damn 2nd puberty lol

Yeah apparently testosterone levels reaaally go up the first week and then goes back to stable. But from some time in no fap challenge, I can say that it kind of gives you more of a "let's go get it" or "All or nothing" mentality that kinda helps you to always be fully committed.

Well that video definitely adds strong evidence to the article and how porn is an obstacle to self-actualization.

 *FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP*

What? I can't hear you, I'm fapping too loud.

I fapped after I read this thread cuz it stressed me out.

Just kidding. Actually I had been no-fap for months at a time and the longest I'd ever been was probably 6 months and it's a waste of time, it's an addiction.
