Well 1st off let me say I went for about 8 days w/o any masturbation and I did feel slight changes in myself, such as: a small boost in energy, focus, and more mental clarity. Now notice I said went, on the 9th day, I gave in to temptation (I was soooo weak :'( ), but more like to experiment to see how much I had really been affected. I'll spare the juicy deets & get to the conclusion. 1st off I felt bad afterwards, and not that normal slight guilt you feel sometimes, it was a heavy, gloomy, rainy cloud floating over my head type of guilt. As if I'd killed someone...& I had. Millions of them to be exact. Millions of people who never even got to reach a tenth of their full potential. A piece of me was lost forever....this dimmed my smile some for sure. Now following my activities I was accompanied by a slight sluggish feeling, wanted to take a power nap honestly, but I just worked through it. My 'sexual eagerness' started to peak again, breaking my concentration every now & then but I'm getting it back under control.
So in conclusion according to my current knowledge, not masturbating, or having sex does have more mind & body benefits than I thought, but this is just the beginning. I've started my 30 day challenge to see just how many good changes this discipline can bring about. I will be keeping you updated just in case you find yourself wanting to try it for yourself one day...hell you never know you might need the for some big life changing goals*
