No-Nut November Anonymous 11/01/2022 (Tue) 19:44:31 ID: 9d3af7 No.20787
Are you participating my brother in Christ? Or have you already failed?
The answer is not iron willpower or devotion to an imaginary friend, but right brain chemistry and lack of boredom. I used to fap 3-5 times a day before moving back to parents and sibling, now I have close to no desire as long as I'm not alone. The brain gets happy chemicals from social interaction with family and doesn't need to make up for it, simple as.
A suggestion from personal experience: confession is a big help. Now, what I mean by that is not strictly the Catholics' sacramental confession but confession in general (though I feel that may be just as helpful). I decided at the start of the year that this would be NN2022. I told some beloved friends of mine I had been having this problem and that I would be taking up this task. I have not succeeded in that goal. I failed twice in January and twice in February. Each time, I wrote the date down in a .txt file and told one or more of my friends about it. Now, in addition to every other motivation, I have the additional motivation that I do not want to let down my beloved friends. There was one day, more recently, that I spent an amount of time looking at stuff I ought not have been looking at. That night, when I lay in bed, I was unable to control my thoughts. I sent a message to my friend and asked him to pray for me. I told him that, if he prayed for me, I would not fail that night. after what felt like hours, I managed to fall peacefully asleep. tl;dr tell your loved ones about your problem and hold yourself accountable not just to yourself but also to them >Confess therefore your sins one to another: and pray one for another, that you may be saved. For the continual prayer of a just man availeth much.

Day 8: who's still participating?
>>21082 I intend on winning.
>>21087 Based.
Day 10 /christian/ soldiers, you're 1/3rd of the way there!
>>21082 Lost hard and a lust overcame me like very few times in my life, but i still intend to curtail the habit down so i can lower the intensity.
>>21122 >I ended up fapping >Does this count as a loss? yes. This should be obvious.
>>21122 >However, then I thought "what if I get blue balls" Never do this it's a trick of the devil. t. past experience
>>21129 Blue balls isn't even that bad, imagine failing because you're afraid of it.
>>21122 >>21123 >>21124 >>21128 >>21129 >>21130 repent. (i also failed brother. i dont have any right to say this to yo but pleae think about christ and what he had to give to make us free from sin)

I don't know how blessed I am to say this, but I have never masturbated ever to porn, although that doesn't mean I haven't struggled with porn. I don't have any physical problems, it's just something I never did or heard about growing up. There's something about a sin you haven't committed (yet) though. Even though I am already a sinner, they are like my own little Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil if that makes any sense.
>>21170 Believe me if you can though, it hurts me just as much.
>>21170 Don't start. Simple as, Anon.
Just to be clear, you'll be continuing after December starts, right, anon?
>>21175 Yeah, duh.

For the remaining NNN warriors out there and anyone getting up after having failed, felt like sharing some images with info dump. Hope it will help some people out there.
>>21200 >fourth pic except those things don't help you in abstaining, they just make you feel even worse when you inevitably fail. your brain can and will rationalize just about everything it can so it makes sure you nut, once you have a long enough streak going that's a motiator in and of itself.
>>21200 im feeling like god has abandoned me, i know its a deception but im feeling awful
>>21204 Reminder that God is faithful even when the human heart is not.
>>21205 amen i have been restored
Day 20 it's 2/3rds accomplished
>>21200 After failing i have been doing it more senselessly than before, there must be a technique to control the lost aside from working or being entertained with something, shame my work shift makes me feel anxiety about playing games or watching movies: Cannot sit relaxed knowing i have to sleep early and work in the morning.
>>21255 easypeasy explains how the sensation to crave porn or masturbation its a mental deception like self fullfil profecy: > i will not masturbate but this is so hard i will fall eventually! instead you must rewire your brain a think like this >i dont masturbate, i dont need to i dont even consider it an option
>>21304 It's the most common form of demonic posession in our time tbh
Dawn of the Final Week 7 days remaining
>>21312 7 days? more like 70 years remaining. >>21304 >i dont masturbate, i dont need to, i dont even consider it an option This is correct.
>>21317 If they can't last another 7 days you can't expect them to last 70 years.
>>21304 Thanks, will try it ("i dont need to i dont even consider it") and report back
>>21305 some guy said demons are born when we masturbate, it is very scary >>21317 >70 years remaining >erectile disffunction laughs in the dark
>>21389 Demons can't be born. Masturbating just opens you up to the possibility of possession by making you depraved. If you feel remorseful about it then don't worry you should be fine
>>21389 >some guy said
im on anti psychotic drugs which makes it impossible to masturbate because its painful
>>21516 based schizo meds making it so people stop sexually sinning The "take your meds" posters are right
>>21389 Demons aren't born. There is a set number of demons which is half the number of angels (one third of the host of heaven became demons).
>>21540 True, real question is are angles/demons specially spiritually because technically speaking all demons except for Satan died in the flood and are spirits so what makes them able to posses people and keeps normal spirits from doing so. I know when people die they go to sheol but what about demons? Revelations seems to mention demons rising from abandon and plaguing humanity so are some let go and others held captive? Could make for an interesting thread
>>21546 >Not even a remotely Biblical statement there, friend. my reasoning for making that claim is that we never see any demons in a physical form past the flood, infact in one of the few instances in which a demon does appear on earth in the bible its in the form of a possession which is spiritual. The only demon which ever seems to appear physically is satan who appears before Jesus to tempt him. Thus my claim.
>>21543 >all demons except for Satan died in the flood >Sauce: Anon's b*tt. Not even a remotely Biblical statement there, friend. However, there apparently is a small contingent of them (those who fathered the Nephilm perhaps?) who are already bound and awaiting judgement.[1] >also BTW, no spiritual being (either Angelic or Human) """dies""" (the way you seem to be implying). We all of us will survive for all eternity. Either in hell, or the New Heavens/New Earth...but it will be eternal. 1. https://www.biblegateway.com/verse/en/Jude%206
>>21547 That claim worked out logically seems to be there is literally only one demon, (to wit: Satan), since he is the only one that can be interpreted as having appeared bodily (ie, the serpent in the Garden of Eden). This position is itself clearly non-Biblical, from the first book to the last book.
>>21550 what? How did you come to that conclusion, the Bible mentions other demons before they died (such as the 1/3rd of the angels that fell) we just dont know what happened to them, which considering the only other time they pop up is as spirits leads me to believe they at some point died hence my claim.
