    This is great - good job getting out to walk instead of staying in with negative thoughts to PMO! You're definitely making great progress!

    It's a temporary thing. Reset and start up the hill again - we're here to help.

    Day 151. I'm really starting to love this new confidence. I am continuing on my semen retention path while not dating but, in the meanwhile, striking up conversations with gorgeous women throughout my day is getting quite addictive. Now, I can just walk up to one without having to give myself some kind of motivational pep talk before going over. Already today, I've met a gorgeous blonde named Emma and a cute brunette named Makayla. I'm getting the hang of it!

    I now understand why confident men don't stress over one woman. They're too busy meeting so many other women to worry about just one!
     
  5. Ok guys, I figured out how to fix "2 counters" problem. You go to the top of the screen and click on your profile and then the "signature" link. Then click your cursor next to the second counter and press back space to delete it.

    Checking in. I’m feeling more stable (less urges) for the past week. I know that can alway change but it’s been nice to be more steady lately.

    Mate, just tell yourself it’s the time to make it. You will get some down right hardcore urges, but just tell yourself that the waves will calm. Read a paper, have a cold shower, go for a jog, the temporary urges will subside, and the other cleaner end will appear. Promise.

    Thanks, bro! After a 20+ year porn addiction, I'm seemingly just now discovering who I really am.

    checking in , today I learned how to grow avocado from seeds, I love how obtaining from P*rn makes learn new things. things are hard lately , I have vivid dreams almost daily after passing day 15 , however no wet dreams, and I don't wish to get one (many do though), and that's because I don't want experience the chaser effect after.

    Hey y’all. I found that ignoring the problem and wishing it would go away does not help. Profound I know lol

    Half way to 90 days and feeling pretty good. I am figuring on this second 45 days being generally easier than the first 45 days, but with a few big tests that would be easy to fail without concerted effort. Got to be mentally prepared to deal with those big tests when they happen.

    I'm at a 2 week streak with no O, which is not my goal, but my goal is generally to not be upset by something I don't very well control (married to a great partner with a low drive). I believe my longest no O streak was 3 weeks back in the day.

    Watched a few good videos on youtube from Dan Amen about brain scans. He doesn't directly discuss nofap (more diet, environment and general thoughts) but I'm sure it is relevant. Interesting to see real life brain scans and how changes can make effects. He does say that being grateful heals your brain, and I am grateful for this website and group.

    Congrats and yep.

    About the 2nd 45 days Post Addiction Withdrawal Syndrome is very real. PAWS got me right at 60 days twice. I didn’t know what it was. The 2 weeks before were so easy I thought I’d figured it all out.

    I look forward to following your progress
     
  17. The group is currently full, but you have been added to the waiting list. We may have an opening for you in a week or so.

    Thank you for the information and heads up, it is really appreciated. It helps to know what to look out for. From past experience, whenever I think I've got it figured out, it's bad news soon!:) Better to be on guard for the next challenge.

    never give up bro, ask yourself why did you feel triggered ? Most of the times for me is not getting enough sleep , but these reasons might also affect your progress : HALT (Hungry, Angry , Lonely, and Tired).
