An Experiment: How much does PE benefit when you quit smoking?
I have read a bazillion resources about smoking cessation over the last year. I have 7 children that flood my inbox and desk with helpful resources.
None of that hit home quite hard enough until last week when I made use of the Thunder-Search-Function. Jeez! 109 threads with the word “smoking” in the title … 110 including this one.
I think that the experiences in these threads and the PE and EQ benefits reported by the members was just what I needed to push me over the edge.
To that end, I am declaring to the forum that as of Feb 29th I have stopped smoking. (I’m 2 days in and it couldn’t suck any worse!!)
I want to use this as an experiment. I will track the effects on my PE results.
I have previously complained about my privacy challenges, but for the last month and next 2 months I believe that I have a unique opportunity to address this issue.
I am on an out-of-town assignment and am spending 4 days and nights a week in a hotel room. No privacy issue there!
I have also finally settled into a consistent routine that I believe is working for me:
Hanging: BTC and SD for 2.0 to 2.5 hours when I am out of town (shooting for 10 hours a week)
Stretching: When I am home I do 30 minutes of Manual Stretching (50% of which is with a fulcrum doing A and V stretches)
Jelquing: I am able to get in about 20 minutes of wet Jelqing a day
ADS: I made a simple ADS that I wear about 4 hours a day under my clothes
Heat: I have a rice sock and a heating pad that I use as frequently as I can to apply heat while stretching
No days off
Since I started PE last year, I have enjoyed som good gains and as of today my BPEL is hovering between 7.13 and 7.25, my MEG has recently hit 5.7 and my EQ is about 8 (I can’t always maintain the level of erection that I want when I jelq)
It is not terribly scientific, but I want to see if I have an improvement in my gains as I eliminate cigarettes from my life. My “stretch” goal is to hit 7.75 by the end of April.
Wish me luck!
