Intense cravings after 3 weeks.

Maybe some of you nofap veterans can help out here. So for about a year I never went more than a week (2 weeks tops) without porn. Now I'm getting serious and Saturday was 3 weeks. And for some reason weeks 1 and 2 were actually pretty easy. No real urges or cravings.

Something happened around day 20. My urges are through the roof. Just finished reading and rereading on YBOP and I am going to be the "red X" visualizations

One interesting thing i read on YBOP was how the intermittent users will get more intense cravings. I think thats a big part of this for me. This is the longest I have abstained in over a year.

I will change things up a bit. Instead of asking for you guys to pray. Can i pray for you or someone in your life? I know I really need to spend more time talking with our heavenly Father. How can I pray for you brothers and sisters?

My best friends (brothers) recently lost their mother to suicide. Please pray for them to find our Heavenly Father to fill the void left by the intense sense of abandonment they feel right now. Stay strong, you know He will never stop loving you!

Love this idea! I just prayed for everyone who has commented so far. I could use some prayer for God to show me how to find my peace and joy in him rather than continue to search for it in worldly possessions and things.

That is a great response to intense cravings. Getting the focus off of yourself and thinking about others. That is a spirit led response. Breaking the old patterns is tough. Your mind and the enemy do not want this to end. Keep looking to the Lord.

Praying for all of you. And thank you all who have prayed for me. Urges were even stronger this morning. I get up early for work while the family is still asleep so it leaves an opening. It used to be part of my pre work morning routine. I really would have given in in the past but I was able to resist. Getting closer to 1 month... Havent had one month free since beginning of 2020.
