It has been a while since I've managed to get past two weeks without orgasm. I read about others feeling bursts of energy when abstaining. I don't recall that happening, but I was under a lot of stress last time around. I'm thinking of using the goal of not feeling tired as a more positive goal than avoiding orgasm as a way to get myself back on track. I also like this goal because this goal is more within my control than say finding a partner where I cannot fully control success. To support my goal, I'm looking for some more info on the energy gain, the process, etc. Some also speak of diminishing returns. Is there any connection to porn or is it simply a result of not orgasming? It's helpful to know to get a sense of what might set me back and if the set back has varying degrees (like brain re-balancing).
