    Im currently on my 8th day of nofap and cold showers have been a big help since day 1.

    all i did was turn the knob down to the bottom all this time.

    Accept today,I got used to the coldnest.

    On my shower there is a second knob with a cold option which I decided to do it and I tell you it was like liquid ice. I turned it back to normal and immidiently tell the temputer change.

    It felt warm not cold and had to change it back.

    But I dont want to damage my body with this ice liquid.

    So how cold would you say a cold shower be.

    I've been cold showering for the past year - it's got to the point that I couldn't physically get into a hot shower. I even shave in cold water.

    Thing about showering on full cold is that it's pretty much impossible to rinse the soap suds off, and you end up trying to wipe away a sheen of soap with the towel. So what I do is turn the shower dial until I hear the hot water engage, which gives me just enough warmth to wash. Then I finish on full cold.

    I can't see the cold causing any problems - I get out of the shower and warm up. (Quicker in winter, funnily enough, when the heat is on.) I also love cold showering right after a run, when I'm overheated. . . which I guess must be like taking a sauna.

    Listen to your body.

    Stay for a minute or two under this "ice liquid" shower.

    If you're still shaking or agitated then it might be too cold. At least for now.
