    Had the worst of the 21 days yesterday. I almost gave in completely. I couldn't control myself. I couldn't think straight . I am getting to that point where I feel that this is all pointless and just one time watching porn won't be a problem. mind says " you haven't done anything for 21 days, doing once now won't affect anything" I dont want to listen to my mind. I feel so weak and vulnerable in terms of this addiction now. Please motivate me. Tell me about when you were at 21 days or how you would approach this??

    Try to find out what gap in your life you're trying to fill with porn and work on that as well.

    And realize that no matter how much porn your stuffing in there, it's a bottomless hole.

    But yes, cravings can get you to do anything. I'd just go outside for a while in such a case. Go jogging or something.

    Spot on man! I think that the gap i'm trying to fill is loneliness. Things haven't been working out in my day-to-day and things get carried over to other parts of life. Anyway I am okay now. Sleeplessness and just a general feeling of guilt played a huge part in me almost caving in. But, you know what the funny part is? Usually when you get the craving and you have porn in front of you, you don't think, right? I mean you can't think. But yesterday, when I was browsing for some erotic movies( not porn)((Because that's how I usually used to start fapping, slowly upping the dopamine) ), and I reached that point, I didn't feel like going for it. I don't know why but the point where my habit usually takes over was replaced by nothing. I was just staring at the content, getting aroused and that's it. This must be the fabled flatline.
