No Fap Hard Mode

What is No Fap Hard Mode?
If you’ve been in the no fap community for a while, you will have learned that there are various ways of doing that practice, one of them being the Hard Mode.

That’s the modality where, not only do you completely let your snake sleep when it is in your company, but you also avoid getting it inside some sugar walls.

What the hell does that mean?

In a few words, no sex.

Not only that but no sex together with no Porn, Masturbation, and Orgasm (PMO)

This means that you will start living the sexual life of a Tibetan monk unless, of course, that’s how your sexual life looks like right now.

This “hard mode” is then the same as practicing “semen retention” instead of wasting it during sexual intercourse. That’s usually undertaken for other reasons apart from getting rid of the negative PMO cycle.

Let’s explore its main benefits now and if you should ever go hard mode in your life.
What are the Benefits of No Fap Hard Mode?
#1: Get 7x More Benefits
When you are in hard mode, you’ll give such a kick to your psychological and physiological system that you will reap many more benefits than the average fapper.
This will happen because you will not only remove porn and masturbation from your life but also because retaining your semen for long enough will literally make you a superhuman.

There have been many reports from no fap practitioners that this was the best way for them to achieve their next level of strength and mind power, compared to the simple no fap.
#2: Harness Massive Energy
Another benefit you will reap with no fapping is that once you retain your semen, all the important nutrients of your sperm will be retained in your body.

This means that since sperm is full of many precious elements that your body won’t need to recreate because of constant depletion, you’ll have more energy.

That’s almost the same thing that happens when you fast for some time and ask less energy to your body to process the food you consume. Just that you will feel it much more than that.
No Fap Hard Mode vs No Fap Soft Mode

In the no normal fap mode, you are not “allowed” to practice Porn, Masturbation, and Orgasm (PMO), but you can have all the sex you want with a woman you like.
When to Practice No Fap Hard Mode
When choosing whether to practice hard mode, realize that will be the practice that will procure you with the highest benefits.

This happens because your synapsis will stop getting bombarded from all sexual stimuli, providing you with god-like focus and willpower.

However, that’s the hardest of the no fap variants you can try as it will completely restructure your brain patterns in a very aggressive way that will overpower the previous programs.
#1: You Want Faster Results
If you don’t want to wait to experience the amazing benefits that no fap gives you, that’s the way to go.

Normal mode will look like bench pressing 30-pound weights, but if you’re really up for the greatest growth in your muscles, you need to start bench pressing at least 100 pounds (metaphorically).

That’s something you will only get with no fap hard mode. By the way, it will also improve your strength, so you’ll probably be able to lift much more than what you’re used to if you do this harder version.

Or, better, bench pressing some real weights.

The choice is yours, however, to succeed in hard mode, you must have stronger willpower than most men have. This brings us to the next point.
#2: You Have High Self-Control

If you haven’t developed high self-control during your life, it will be hard for you to overpower the resistance that hard mode will provide you with. That’s why you need to work on your self-control first if you want to win.

To make another metaphor, hard mode is like when Vegeta trained with supergravity to reach a new level of Super Saiyan.

via GIPHY

If he hadn’t worked out at this gravity level, things would’ have improved that much. However, he was already trained to do those same reps perfectly without gravity.

That’s why I’d suggest you start with normal mode first, or you might not make it through the hard mode. However, there’s a case when you can go for the hard stuff directly, we’ll explore this below.
#3: You Are REALLY Driven to Change

If you are really committed to becoming your best version and to lead the weaknesses of being trapped into the PMO cycle, then you can smash everything with your emotional drive.

If there’s one thing (apart from willpower), that is a human force is the desire to overpower our demons once forever.

That was the same force I used to shatter my social anxiety and insecurities with women when I was younger. I didn’t wait for things to get perfect until I started socializing with them.

I just started approaching them out of nowhere.

That was painful, but ultimately it paid off as, interaction after interaction, I was shattering the weak part of me until none of it was left.

That’s why if you’re motivated to win this fight, there’s nothing that will be able to stop you, nor the difficulty of doing hard more nor me. Instead, I’ll be the first to encourage you to win.

I will surely advise you to go hard mode if you’re in a period of your life where you need to make major changes like starting a new business, recovering from a breakup/loss, or going through a tough spiritual period of your life.

The energy that semen retention will provide you with will be so strong that you’ll feel confident at facing 99% of obstacles that life will throw at you, without doing anything in particular.
When to Practice No Fap Normal Mode
If you’re new to no fap, starting with the normal mode can be the best of your options. Apart from this, there are also other cases when you could find this to be a better choice.
#1: You Have a Hard Time Controlling Yourself
If you are already struggling at controlling yourself, whether it’s with your diet or behavior, it might be harder for you to go directly to hard fap. For that reason, you might prefer getting to the normal fap step first, so build enough self-control on moving forward.

The fact that you can’t control yourself in various areas of your life might signify that you need to work on your willpower. You can do this in multiple ways:

You can push yourself to do more of what you have to do;
You can exercise more conscious control over the things you can.

Just as you start with light weights when you go to the gym, your willpower needs to be cultivated daily to empower you with strength in the long term.
#2: You Want Small Improvements and Thrive on Progressive Change

Some people like to make abrupt changes in their lifestyles to get fast benefits while others prefer a smooth transition into their goals.

If you are not in a tough period of your life and all you’re looking for is making small improvements in your health or wellbeing, then going normal mode will fit you better.

Maybe you already have friends and women to spend time with. Or perhaps you’re financially stable and don’t need to work your ass off to make it to the end of the month.

I applied normal mode in such periods of my life as it was the best way to make me push forward while, at the same time, not making me feel stressed about the practice itself.
#3: You Want to Enjoy Your Sex Life
When you are in hard mode, you know that even if you start conversations with women, you will not be able to have sex with them, unless you retain you do that while retaining your semen.

That could be a high price to pay, especially for guys that are living a good social life and have access to one or more women.

If you are also very extroverted by nature and like to interact with the opposite sex, you might find it hard to resist the temptation, also because women will generally be more attracted to you during your no fap journey.

That’s why normal mode is the way to go if you want to keep interacting with women to keep an active sexual life.
How To Succeed with NoFap Hard Mode
Now you’ve probably made your decision. If the final verdict is going hard mode, however, you need to understand how to make sure you will make it through this journey instead of getting defeated by it.

Below are some practical tips to succeed with that.
1: Your Why & Benefits
First of all, you must know why you’re getting yourself in this monk modality of no fapping. Realize that this is the hardest you will ever do in your life, so make sure you have your motive well defined.

This means that you must know all the reasons why you want this, including the reasons that brought you to read this article.

-Is it to become a stronger version of yourself?
-Do you want to feel better and more energetic?
-Do you want to make more money?
-Do you want to become a more attractive man?
-Do you want to feel more spiritually aligned?

The reasons are different for everybody. That’s why you must seek your own answers and do not give in to what people tell you to practice no fap for.

That would be a huge mistake.

That’s why honesty and self-awareness are the first elements you should consider before getting into this.
2: Enjoy Progressive Process
When you get into your journey, remember to focus also on your process apart from the long term goals, you just decided in the point above.

This will ensure that while you’re in the midst of the journey, you’ll have fun and grow instead of being pushed like a heavy sandbag.

Neurologically and psychologically, you need to have your benefits associated both in the future and in the present if you want to enjoy long term success.

That’s necessary because unless you receive daily or weekly positive feedback by the practice, you will not endure it long and, worse, will consume a lot of willpower.

However, if you see that every single day that you retain your semen, you feel good, then you’ll be much more likely to make it through the process, while also feeling pleasure.

This concept applies to everything one wants to perform in long periods of time.
3: Get Accountability
Finally, getting some professional accountability might be precisely the thing you need to make it through the time you want to perform no fap safely and consistently.
When you get a coach, you’ll hardly fail, especially if the coach is a person you admire or with which you have an emotional bond.

A coach that has tried no fap hard mode then is the best option to go for as he will know exactly when and how to help you.
The Bottom Line
Now that you know the difference between no fap hard mode and soft mode, what path should you choose?

If you want to experience a quantum leap of benefits of no fapping, go for the hard mode but be psychologically ready for it.
If you want to get the classical benefits of no fap without changing your lifestyle too much, then the normal mode is for you.
Alternatively, you can try a mix of the two and alternate weeks (or days) of hard mode with days of normal mode. This means that if you want to have sexual relationships from time to time, then go for it!

I hope this article helped you make a decision on what path to take. However, I wish you a lot of strength in this amazing journey, my friend, because you’ll need it in any case.
