The 30-Day Challenge: No Booze, No Masturbating (NOBNOM)

Josh Schmitz

Heres the short version:

I was just shown the NOBNOM Challenge by one of my mentors, Dave. If you know me at all, you know I love challenges like this - So, myslef and a few close friends have all vowed together to take the plunge. For all of March - No Booze, No Masterbation.

Heres the long version for those of you looking for details:

---

Tim Ferris ran this Challenge in September last year, but this is the first we are hearing about it and we are eager to issue the challenge out to our platform as well. So heres the deal:

You know who you are, you filthy animals. Men and Women both:

Yes, I’ve admitted it before, and I’ll admit it again: 99.999% of dudes watch porn on the Internet. Shocker, I know. All those guys on the magazine covers? They do it, too.

Less obvious, perhaps, is how dramatically your life can change if you quit porn and masturbation for a short period.

Tim did this for 30 days recently, and — oddly enough — he found it much easier and more impactful to quit booze for the same 30 days. So bit the bullet and do both. 

Here are just SOME of the benefits you can expect to see...

  • A dramatic surge in free testosterone and sex drive. Research (example, example) shows that alcohol reduces testosterone levels.
  • Increased ability to focus and cognitive endurance. This goes along with increased “T” mentioned above.
  • Getting roughly 50-100% more done. When you aren’t nursing hangovers, chewing up 3-4 hours per night with friends, destroying your sleep with booze, or procrastinating with porn (you know who you are) — miracle of miracles — you get more done! A LOT more done. In my mind, this alone easily justifies a 30-day booze and porn fast. You’ll clear off that goddamn to-do list faster than Speedy Gonzalez. And remember: sex is still allowed.

The 30-day challenge is referred to as NOBNOM (NO Booze, NO Masturbating), as the acronym itself sounds pornographic. We gotta make this sumnabitch memorable.

NOTE: If you don’t masturbate, or if you otherwise don’t watch enough porn to care about abstaining, here’s another option:

#NOBNOC — No Booze, No Complaining

For this version, please first read “Real Mind Control: The 21-Day No-Complaint Experiment.” Then, join the same NOBNOB challenge page to be part of the community.

GET STARTED

STEP 1 - Join the NOBNOM goal page here. This is free, and it will keep you accountable to yourself and others. 

STEP 2 - If you’re really serious, up the ante and put some cash on the line. Without stakes or consequences, about 70% of you will fail. So… choose not to fail. Create a betting pool with a few friends or co-workers. Each person commits $100 or whatever (enough to sting if lost, but not enough to bankrupt you) to the pot, and those who complete the full 30 days split the pot.

And that’s it!

So, What Are You Waiting For?

Even if you fail - its worth the try. At the very least, it’ll make you conscious of automatic behaviors.  Things you’ve done for so long that you know nothing else.

Welcome to Thunderdome!  You’ll thank me later.

See you on NOBNOM central.

Josh.
