    Please explain
    I didn't want to PMO, had no intention. I mindlessly was browsing reddit and other forums, trying to understand how hacking works. I couldn't stop browsing even though I need to get work done. When I spent whole day trying to replace PMO with another mindless activity I lost it and decided it was better I PMOd and stop this stupid "research". Is what I went through normal?

    Ok so, sounds like you procrastinated getting work done via mindless browsing on a subject you didn't need to be researching at the time. This, coupled with the fact you were on a laptop is a massive trigger i.e. "fuck it lets just pmo". Your brain is in a perfect position to convince you to PMO in this scenario...

    Think of it as a suicidal person who is drunk and thinking about ending it all, your scenario was similar to giving the drunk suicidal guy a loaded gun. It was the perfect storm to carry out the task. Where as if the gun wasn't in the picture, he might have walked away from it etc. A dark analogy but you get the idea. I think you need a technology break for the first few stages of NoFap. Just my unsolicited advice.

    Thank you Kvothe! I spend almost the entire that with my laptop/gadgets for work and leisure. I need to put the gun away when I'm not working or maybe work only with company so I don't harm myself. Thank you so much for that dark but brilliant analogy!

    So my work is mostly on a laptop as well. I've had to put a technology ban on myself, except for working hours. For those working hours, I'm literally on a work laptop so I can't use that to research risky material. Unethical and down right unprofessional, so that helps. Having a high speed internet connection and a browser at the ready, is the loaded gun.
