    Nice! Yeah, it's definitely gotten easier. I think the first week to ten days was tough. Since then, I'll get an occasional urge, but I definitely don't miss it.

  4. Day 4 of 30. Didn't post yesterday because I was on-site at work at 4AM and didn't want to put nofap.com into the network logs. Poor OPSEC. It was a difficult day (see journal) where I got emotionally hammered. Got home, crashed out feeling awful, and picked up my phone. Really wanted to hit the search engine and self-medicate. But I didn't. I just rode out the storm overnight and here I am the next morning. Calm seas.

    Good to see you @Mechdiesel. Glad you and 'Dad are with me.

    Nice job, y'all! Did y'all find you spent your time on better things than porn? That was a bit thing I noticed when I first started this challenge. I could easily spend 30-45 minutes on porn in a day. Now I usually spend that on work, house work, meditation, exercise, or even communicating with friends. All of which make me much happier than watching porn did.

    5/30 Good day yesterday. At times it was difficult especially in the bathroom. I found by either not taking my phone in with me or limiting my time in bathroom helps curve temptations. Today I will continue to stay clear of porn or m

    Yes, I've experienced this too. I have a theory about it. Porn can keep men in long-term relationships too sexually satiated so we have less desire for our partners. Then we perform worse. It's not that we get ED (I'm not sure whether porn contributes to that), it's just that, having less desire, we're a little worse in the bedroom. What's more, if we've recently jacked off to porn, and, as a result, not in the mood for sex, we might not want our partner to initiate sex with us and therefore might be a little more distant from them.

    Anyway, I succumbed a few days ago. I haven't had a really good run of no-porn days lately. Now I'm still not watching an amount that I think is problematic for me (once a week or so). But I'm worried that I'm on a slippery slope and am headed back to watching it daily. So my aim has gotta be to complete this challenge: 30 days!

    Don't know if it's a reset... but I've relapsed 3 times on 1 Jan and 9 an 12 Jan...
    Today it's the 1/30

  18. Bummer. I'm also ambivalent about 100% absolutely no porn forever. There's a part of me that wants to find a policy that will maintain the benefits of NoFap and still permit some indulgence. I'm about two weeks into a 90-day personal no-porn commitment. In 75 days, relapse or not, I'll consider whether I want to "ride the tiger". Until then, I find it actually easier when I stay well away from the boundaries.

    I wanted to keep this Reddit link around for myself, but perhaps others will find it useful. The Ultimate Guide.
