A lot of Nofap is Placebo: Please read and understand

This may get downvoted, but if I can at least help one person, then I don’t care.

I have been in and out of nofap since around 2017. However, I had an epiphany in 2019 that has changed my perspective.

Most of Nofap is placebo and I encourage most of you to get what you need from it and get out..like now.

The Good:

Nofap and pornfree are great tools for people severally addicted to porn and masturbation. Excessive PMO is not physiologicaly good for you or your brain. You can fuck up your sexual dopamine receptors, and get to used to internet porn instead of the real thing. Also, porn addicts tend to develop bad external habits outside of just the sexual landscape. This includes not dieting correctly, not exercising better, not socializing and dating as much etc. All of these things will negatively affect your physical and mental health. This is why it’s important to test the waters of nofap for a little while.

Here’s were the problem comes in:

A lot of you guys issues of PIED, premature ejaculation, deathgrip, etc. are the result of general performance anxiety. Some of you will be doing nofap for months or years and have 1 relapse and think all of your progress is gone. You’ll notice how you’ve gone months and years of doing nofap and your still not able to live a normal life.

News flash: The issue is IN. YOUR. HEAD. The more you think that 1 relapse or porn view will break your dick, the more it’s gonna happen, just due to the general anxiety. If you’ve gone months or years in nofap and you still feel like you need to do it (nofap or fapp off), then you need to go to seek a doctor of some sort. Whether is a regular doctor/urologist, or seeking therapy. You guys being in these months long β€œflatlines” aren’t good. That problem is beyond nofap. It’s either just general performance anxiety, or something wrong with your health. Please don’t try and solely treat yourself on an Internet forum alone. The more you stay here around your confirmation biases, the more you will feel like you need this.

Nofap and pornfree is a great starting point for true addicts and changing your life. But beyond that, it’s time to understand the problem is all mental. I’m saying this because I want to help and save some of you some time.

Edit: Please ignore my flair. I’m not 300 days into a streak. I’ve ditched this sub a while ago and haven’t cared to change or take out my flair.

At the end of the Covid-19 Vaccine trials, were the patients told what they got and the placebo group given first shot at getting the real Vaccine?

There's so much question left as to whether the vaccine will give a long lasting immunity to Covid-19 symptoms, I started wondering how the Phase 3 trials end. Does everybody find out what they got? Do they keep reporting in for a couple years? Do the placebo groups get a front of the line pass to the real vaccine? Are there still people who got the placebo walking around thinking they might be immune?

Seems to me that early data is best data, so the original vaccine group need to be monitored. If month 5 comes and suddenly a bunch of them get sick, it means the immunity didn't last long after all :(

Why those who say Semen Retention Benefits are just placebo are Stupid

I've been reading a lot of comments, on this sub of some skeptical people, claiming that the benefits of Semen Retention are just placebo.

Which I think is funny and to a certain point even stupid, for the simple reason that even if we argue that Semen Retention benefits are just a placebo and an effect of our Mind. Isn't that in itself proof of how powerful our minds can be? If all those people who experience all these benefits, of strength, magnetism, attraction, luck, focus, productivity, creativity, etc.. are just a by-product of us BELIEVING in something, isn't this awesome?

But y'all are focus on the wrong side of things, thinking that by claiming these benefits are just a by-product of our minds, then it's bullshit.

If a cancer patient, managed to heal himself through a placebo medication AKA HIS MIND, would you bash him for doing so? Would you tell him, that this medication was just a placebo and that it only contained sugar? Who f*ckin cares lol? It worked. That's all that matters.

A lot of people have very deep confusion about beliefs and facts. Especially with the rise of worship of science, if we can't calculate it and prove it, with numbers then it doesn't exist.

It doesn't work that way guys! is the other way around: The things you BELIEVE BECOME A REALITY for YOU.

There are and has been, hundred of religions around the world, and each population, claimed that their prayer has been answered and that their God/s Protect them, etc.. Would you tell them, it's just a placebo? So what? If it should tell you something, it should tell you how powerful BELIEFS can be.

Don't just go around, and repeat "placebo" like a parrot, without even reflecting on what you are saying.

Reality is way more malleable than you would even imagine, things aren't FIXED, and for all the Science worshippers, even Quantum Physics start to prove this, that our BELIEFS and EXPECTATION has a lot to do, with the reality we experience.

If the benefits of Semen Retention are "real" then it's good, if the benefits of Semen Retention are "placebo" then it's good. The only thing that matters, is that people experience those benefits after starting this practice, and that's all we should care about, and after all what does "REAL" even mean?

Melatonin seems to help my mood. Is this likely placebo or is there something behind this?

During Norwegian winters, sunlight is hard to come by. Add to this the fact that gyms are closed and we (Oslo) are in a total lockdown my mood is not always on top. I have however noticed randomly that when I take melatonin I'm much happier on average the day after compared to when I don't. Has anyone experienced this or know more about this? Am I just experiencing placebo or randomness or is there something to this?

Do doctors issue placebo tablets? My brother just died at 44. He complained about pain to NHS for years. The strong drugs were never enough. Drs gave up trying to get him off them. Towards the end he complaining the tablets did nothing. After he died, I took one of his painkillers and it did nothing

Could doctors issue placebo tablets? I took another of his painkillers and again it did nothing. No pain relief whatsoever. Does the NHS secretly issue placebos to patients that won’t give up the painkillers? He was in serious pain for years and turned to god - it didn’t help. The NHS refused to do anymore.

Born and raised vegan for over a decade, got an autoimmune disorder, now in less pain if I eat less meat- how/why? Placebo? Any help understanding would be great.

Good morning all!

Thank you for coming to my post, may you have a wonderful day-week-month-year-life. I just found this sub, and from the looks of it, y’all have the collective wisdom that I’ve been seeking. I have Questions. I will give a brief history and a tl;dr at the end.

History: my family raised me hardline vegan. This lasted until a neighbor, incensed that I had not β€œtruly experienced America,” handed me a classic cheeseburger off his backyard grill. I was eleven years old. It was a life-changing moment. I loved it. I ate three. I threw up for three weeks.

After that, my mum (I have two, in case this causes confusion later) insisted that even if we were not vegan, we were all-organic, locally sourced, non-GMO, farm-to-table, all the hippie buzzwords, and as close to vegetarian as possible. Meat was usually chicken or a pig that our family and a few others had purchased and had slaughtered at a local butcher, or venison bartered from a hunter. Vegetables came from the garden or the co-op’s organic section. I’m sure y’all are familiar. Lots of vegetables. No processed foods. That sort of thing.

I get to college. I eat like shit. I finally learn what a gym is, and start going. I get married early and get abused and depressed. I get divorced four years later (turns out I married someone who was gay and I didn’t fit the bill). Living in my car and working sometimes 24, 96, sometimes a whole week at a time (EMS), no breaks, gas station food. I feel like shit but assume it’s normal.

Then I get diagnosed with rheumatoid polyarthritis. It’s in every joint. I need massive amounts of medications to even walk, let alone move around without pain. No more going to the gym, no more EMS (I fucking loved that job, too). I find a new career, go back to school, whatever.

But I keep getting these autoimmune diagnoses. And I hurt like a bitch. I find that eating more vegetarian, even sometimes taking the vegan option, sometimes helps. I don’t know why. Did being raised vegan make me just never develop the ability to process normal food? My mum was vegan when she was pregnant with me, I never got formula, all that good stuff. Is it just the regular disease progression? Is it a factor of not being able to lift weights or run anymore?

Tl;dr: born and raised vegan for a decade, got multiple autoimmune disorders, now I hurt less when I eat closer to vegetarian/vegan. Wtf?

Fellow ex-vegan brethren, did you ever find that going close to your former ways had med

I'm crazy and it's just placebo or this feature is that amazing? yeah, this feature reduce the overall brightness but nothing to worry, I just increased the backlight intensity and problem solved.

I love this tv man!
