    Hey guys, I think the longest streak I’ve done was something like 14 days and today marks my 10th day. I’m feeling good but to be honest it’s getting difficult lol. When I get some thoughts I usually log in and browse some threads to keep my head out of these thoughts and right now as writing this my urge from like 10 min ago is gone and I’m feeling confident and determined again. I don’t wanna fail so just wanting some motivation or tips if you guys have on fighting these urges! It’s like something in my mind starts telling me that looking at P or M won’t do nothing wrong to me, these tricks are powerful lol.

  2. Yes they are very powerful but you know what, you are more powerful than them :) its good to do some physical activity when having urges, cold shower helps a lot too, keeping your mind focused on the future, your goals, school or work etc... its important to treat this as a life style not as a challenge then it wont be so easy to give in :) all the best brother. Take care

  6. When urges get stronger for me I have always been able to link it to my behaviors in the days leading up to the urges. Was I looking at women longer than normal? Was I fantasizing a lot? Did I click on clickbait instead of ignoring it? Just do the same thing you did the last 10 days if it worked.

    When you get urges and you overcome it you get stronger.

    It is not just a saying, you can actually recognize the power that overcome an urge give to you. Psychologically and physical.

    Every time you overcome urges, is like a level up. You can feel more powerful.

    I repeat, is not a saying, the power that you get overcoming an urge is a tangible and visible reality.

    Yo bro, you have to take the time to associate pain with your habit. I highly recommend journaling everyday about all the negative effects porn and masturbation has on your life. Then think about how bad your life will be if you do not tackle this problem. Trust me this helps!

    10-21 days is when the cravings get the worst for me. It’s when the brain really starts demanding it’s “fix” so I can empathize with that 10 day mark being really hard.

    Man , nip the evil in the bud

    When you were aroused for the first time did you contol urself?Control in a sense that did you prevent yourself from edging.If u can stop for the first time then You will get enough power to stop further.

  11. Ask yourself, "What is stopping me from going a day without porn?" There is no good answer.
    The urges are not stronger - the determination needs reinforcement. Get angry about it.

    Fighting urges will improve your problems that p gave you. Numbers won't. One urge fought is one great victory believe me

    Yesterday I read an intresting notion about those urges, from someone I trust very much in those matters. He said that we have a finite number of urges we have to experience (as large as it may be) in order to overcome this addiction. Each urge can be treated as a spoon of bitter soup we can choose either to drink (not listening to this urge) or refuse to drink (submitting to this urge and relapse).
