Re: NoA (No Arousal - celibacy of body AND MIND for 3+ months) What I mean to say is no sex and porn before marriage is fine .. But no masturbation before marriage is too harsh a rule .. Sexual instinct is a natural inbuilt instinct too powerful to ignore ..it needs to have outlet.. In the western world a bachelor can have outlet in the form of a girlfriend even before marriage .. Whereas here I can't fap and I can't fuck either( by religion and by my addiction induced Ed) so what am I supposed to do .. By the way I am from India and I have tried to observe brahmacharya .. It's too hard ..to be a good brahmachari like the guy who wrote the book mentioned involves a serious lifestyle change where you start by giving up all your worldly possessions to focus your mind on learning .. Thats how the geniuses of yore invented yoga ,algebra and other stuff,they were totally focused..People were doing this till about 40 years ago , but with modernization and the coming of high speed Internet and stuff all this went down the drain and most people don't even know about celibacy , brahmacharya etc today .. Take me for example , I am so hooked to porn that I forget about everything else once I start a binge session ..it is killing me..
