    I went back to ground zero. 0,0 on the timers. Giving in is never worth the cost. There is a type of insanity that is involved here. Like all insanity treatment is needed. Unlike true insanity, this insane one is responsible for his actions.

    It's been a ride, I will tell you that. I've had confusing moments of "This is so easy" to "If I just think one more thought, this NoFap thing is over, f** the consequences".

    Between all of that, I've managed to keep busy with fitness, work, etc. I've also adopted an acronym for when I feel trapped: R.A.R. E. (Relax, Accept what happened, Recommit to your goal, Evacuate mentally or physically from the trigger).

    Beyond that, I'm still going on....Regardless of what happens, I actually went 10 days. I can't remember doing that since before I even knew what M or P was. That is a step, but not the final step in becoming a Master Fapstronaut.

    Keep going man! I am on the 14th day of a long term challenge. Whenever you feel trapped, just go out side and do some exercise at once. PMO is never a problem when there is something more meaningful to do instead. GOOD LUCK!

    Congratulations man! I needed to see a post like this. It will help me recommit.

    Thanks! I will agree with you that exercise has definitely helped me persist. It helps build discipline and keeps your mind focused on the task in front of you.

    Day 13 of 15: I made it! It actually wasn't as difficult as the previous days. More mental whining than urges.

    Day 14 of 15: Yesterday was actually a quiet (busy and tiring) day but one that wasn't full of raging storms of urges.

    Did I have urges? Yes.

    Did I ever consider giving up? No.

    Yep, It's the NOFNOS thread, slightly inspired by Tim Ferris' post (http://fourhourworkweek.com/2014/07/30/nobnom-no-booze-no-masturbating/). Now I understand that it's a BIG jump from 15 days to 30 days, but I look forward to the challenge anyway. Let's see how much awesomeness I can grab in the process.

    I relapsed earlier today after a streak of 21 days. I'm a newbie, and I need your support just as we all need each other. I'm joining with you today!

    The fact that you were able to reach 21 days means that you have willpower and discipline. The fact that you failed doesn't mean that you lost that willpower and discipline. It just means that you're human...and that you're learning.

    Reflect on what happened and then move forward.

    NoFap isn't something that you fix in one challenge. You have to be in this game long-term to win. So pick up where you left off each and every time. Each time you try you're sending a message to your brain that you want to make a change.
