    7 days today. Yep, one week. Doing ok with this stretch where I'm on my own for a few days. Yesterday felt awful, first allergy attack of the season set it off. It's funny though, makes nofap easier when you're feeling sick. Oh well, I'll take it if it helps lol.

    I did not sleep well last night, but did have a realization this morning. This nofap challenge is not only about what we're avoiding, but what we're seeking. Stopping the damaging P cycle is one half of the process, the other half is finding something positive to replace it with. Our work is not only about learning more self-control, but also reflecting on what is important to us so that we can reach towards that as we move forewards.

    Forgot which day I am on since I have not checked in for two days. This morning I was overwhelmed by my body's response to seeing women on the streets. My mammalian brain's mating program went to overdrive. I had to do deep breathing exercises and even sit down and meditate at one point to just calm things down. It was a stark reminder that in the end I am only human and can't override my biology. On the other hand, it also served to remind me that acting out is a choice. I am now calm. The storm is over for now.

    Day 4 of 365. I'm realizing some lies I used to believe that kept me acting out the addiction:

    - 'My body has to have sex in one form or another, so I have no choice but to act it out.' Nope, that is bullshit. It is completely up to me whether to have sex or not.

    - 'If I am sexually stimulated by some scene or event, I have to find a way to orgasm. The drive will overpower me eventually.' Absolute nonsense. My mind and body are resilient. If I don't stoke the flames of my sexually urges by flooding my mind with mental images of whatever got me turned on, it will fade away very rapidly.

    - 'I have to orgasm. It's unhealthy to retain semen for too long.' Nope. I've found no scientific studies to prove this. After going over 200 days without orgasm, I felt fine. No negative symptoms.

    You're right. I notice that I am on the lookout and imagining things. I've been working to stop them when I notice them. Previously, I wouldn't engage them too much, but I definitely was not working to stop them. I need to stop creating fantasies in my head, or find something to replace them with. That is a main focus for me. Thank you for this insightful post. I new what I was doing, but didn't realize how much it affected me, and can lead to relapse. I need to replace these fantasies that go on pretty spontaneously, especially if I am stressed, in my regular life with some positive mental stories.

    77/365. I need to replace the sexual narratives that I have in my head for different scenarios with some more realistic thinking.
