    I am on day 149 no sex, no PMO
    No fantasy, no euphoric recall
    40 year old male


    I am grateful to have very few lust thoughts, no strong desire to act out, no urges to fight off. The problem has been removed.

    I am keeping strong boundaries around the internet, attending 12.step meetings, keeping in touch with other addicts.

    Wishing everyone a steady recovery

    Without God's help I am powerless over lust

  7. I'm curious why you are not allowing yourself to M or O? For me the focus is on ridding myself of P but I do not see M and O as the enemy, it's natural to want to M and to O no?
     
  8. Checking and going strong on 15 days and heading for a month! Finding doing weights at the gym to be SUPER helpful in this journey and in my life in general

    Why is fapping bad? There are so many reasons. It's addictive, it's terrible for male health, it causes erectile dysfunction.

  10. Guys, let me share my point of view and experience
    Yes, it's completely natural to have sexual impulses. But the problem with M is that it's addictive. Even a single "dose" may be enough to get hooked!
    When performing a behavior consumes more time than intended, when you want to stop or reduce it for whatever reason but you find yourself repeating it anyway, when you leave aside other things that you should be taking care of in that moment because you are engaged in the behavior, and so on, we have big red flags...
    In my case, the problem is 99% with M and 1% with P. By the way, it was M what led me to watch P!
    I can say M has had a negative impact on my psychological health.
    M is not harmless.

    Hi all. I relapsed again today. Started scrolling through Twitter pretending that I was looking for some crazy videos to entertain myself a bit but at the back of my mind I knew I was hoping to accidently come across some nudity. And I did, and ended up spending an hour watching and masturbating. My conscious brain just switched off. Shit!
     
  18. Does fappling cause erectile dysfunction? Since I was a teenager I put have fapped hundreds of thousands of times, maybe more! And I do not have erectile dysfunction

    Why is it terrible for male heath if you fap say once a week or once a fortnight? Why is fapping terrible for male health?

    Do you not find that the build up of sexual energy needs an outlet? Do you have wet dreams instead of fapping? I just know that the energy eventually needs an outlet

  19. I agree that M led to to use P

    I also agree that M can be addictive. What do you do with the sexual energy in order not to M? How do you achieve this? Do you have wet dreams instead of M and O? Just because the energy eventually needs an outlet and that is why some people M...but also others M because of addiction I totally get that
