    I've already tried doing the NoFap but the farthest I've gone was about 2 weeks, this is the First time I posted in the forums decided to enter my journey here to truly commit with the NoFap initiative.

    I think I am already addicted to PMO (Doing it a minimum of 1 per day). Quitting was always at the back of my mind but never really had the commitment or will to do but after rewatching some NoFap videos and listening to advise by people I look up to, I decided to give it a go one more time and try to fully commit.

    STATS: Current Streak 0/ Longest Streak 8 Days / Relapse 8

    Relapsed
    • The Demons(temptations) are real, the worst thing you can do is to underestimate them and provide them a space to occupy. Don't forget that they once took a hold of your life.
    • Relapsing is not good, It can chip away on your resolve till your contemplating of quitting. Take a long hard look at the reason why you started and as to how PMO has changed you, STRENGTHEN YOUR RESOLVE.
    QUITTING?
    • They're not here, The community is composed of people who are committed to the NoFap.
    • Quitting is the easiest thing you can do.
    • Engage/Learn about other peoples journey.

    Welcome (back) bro!

    Just daily check in here and make it a part of your routine to stay active on these forums.
    Feel an urge coming up? Walk away, get some fresh air, do some push ups, hold your breath, these are a few things to do just to get your mind off of the moment you feel tempted.

    Best of luck to you mate! And many strengths!

    Thank you for the words of encouragement, and the same back to you.

    I'm doing my very best to check in here everyday, and it's becoming a routine now.

    26 days now! Staying strong, but it's sti really rough sometimes, but talking with all of you, and hearing your stories have been making it THAT much easier for me. I hope I can do the same for you all, as well.

    Thank you!

    Day 6 (Update)

    Think this is the longest streak of me being clean for a long time. Was near the point of breaking today and at the last minute, I decided to do a quick read on NoFap thread and AP messages which help then decided to follow my set of Preventive measures to take my mind off the urges. Preventive measures include Writing back to AP and Writing through my journal and following up this thread. First few days were easy but day 5 and today are getting really difficult.

    It makes me really happy to hear that you're on such a good streak, man. Seriously, proud of you. It isn't easy in the slightest, but I can tell you have the ambition and mentality to put this in the past.

    I really hope some of the advice I've given you gave you insight into ways to distract yourself from urges.

    It sounds like you're taking the proper measures to recovery, and just remember I'm here for you, brother. Just shoot me a message whenever. It WILL GET easier.

    You got this!

    Day 5-6 I think my body is trying to find a replacement for the highs. I can't concentrate when I was applying in the morning when I watch shows I keep forwarding to the climactic scene, and even when I went for a jog I was out of breath at 3/4 the distance of my usual run. I’m not sure if its due to the abstinence but will still push through with the daily schedule.
     
  9. You are doing great, during your reboot you will feel muh more energized each day. Of course some days might not bad so good, but the first 15 days are harder, after that you can get used to it, the secret is to keep your mind busy all the time and be careful watching stuff that has sexual content. Good luck.:emoji_fist:

    Hey dude, thanks for being honest with us. Don't beat yourself up about it! Just jump straight back on the wagon and carry on.

    Do you know why you tripped up? Any specific triggers? Was it boredom, a certain mood, something you saw online...? If you can identify what caused your relapse you can try to avoid that situation happening again in future.

    Keep it up!

    Day 0

    Had a really long look at myself and my reason for starting the journey. I could provide millions of reason as to why I relapsed but it all goes to resolve being tested and breaking at the moment. This journey is never gonna be easy in the first place and the enemy is not weak. I think I was able to rethink my situation and solidify my resolve.

    I came close to getting tempted yesterday and I found that logging on here and responding to a couple of messages helped to take my mind away from porn and to refocus on the reasons for doing this. That might be worth trying for you as well.

    Keep it up man, the rewards for success are massive!

    I wrote you a message back, but the website said it was considered "spam" or had "inappropriate conduct" in it, and neither of those are true haha.

    So don't think I haven't replied to you, my friend.

    Hope you're doing well. I said it in the message, but I'll say it again. "Slow progress is better than no progress." At least you're trying, man.

    You're taking steps to better yourself. Don't beat yourself up ever.

    You can do it, man!

    I'm still trying to send that message to you, but customer service, or maintenance, whatever, hasn't responded to me yet...

    So annoying...

    So it turns out that customer support can't assist me with fixing this issue, because I'm not paying to use the website?

    I feel like that's a scam, and that message comes up after so many messages have been sent, to get people to pay for it, but that's just a hunch. Now watch my account get deleted haha.

    Day 36 and going strong though, my friend. I hope you're holding up alright.

    Miss ya, dude.

    Keep in touch!

    4 - Day Streak
    My Brother visited in the first 2 days of being clean then had a weekend that contributed a lot. Installed an app called Fap Counter that I think contributes a lot to marks your progress. Read somewhere that change doesn't happen instantaneously there will be ups and down the important thing is that your progress should be heading in an upward direction, which I can say is true in my progress. I've started in 18 days and have masturbated 6 times if I have not started this journey I would've masturbated around 20+ times already so I think that's a win. Ahahahaha

    How you doing brother? having a very challenging time in life in general but still in the journey of stopping this addiction. I sent out out a new message hoping this one will reach you and I'm also coordinating with the customer support in regards to the problem. I'll just update this thread for now.

    Hope you're doing great brother! Congrats on the 39 days streak! :D

    Hey man, great to hear you didn't give up. winning is done by failing until you succeed, not by never failing. The most successful people in the world are there because they were not afraid of failing and didn't stop trying.

    If you are in a similiar timezone (I am GMT +1) and look for an AP partner I would be up for it.
