Day 1/7 completed!
Day 5. Stay on guard.
I'm not sure why my message is in Spanish or Portuguese i wrote it in English. As soon as i read your message i thought yeah i know that the challenge is 7 days without anything but then i thought about what that meant. it takes such high levels of self control to not be able to react upon my urges, and not go straight back unto Instagram to look at hot girls flaunting their curves, and beauty. I usually always go straight to Instagram, and just realize that im wasting so much time just lusting. i never really saw instagram as a relapse i think it depends. its definatly bad to do but if i go instagram for 5 minutes, and im looking at girls but dont end up jerking off (happens very rarely) should i restart my counter? i guess it depends on the person but that mentality leads me to then just jerk off if im already forced to restart the counter anyway which dosent encourage improvement
I started this yesterday. unfortunately i relapsed half an hour ago back to day 0. I find it funny how the immediate feeling after relapse is that of regret, and sadness. i feel like half of the person i actually am. just terrible. but during the relapse its just lust, and you dont feel any need to stop or get off just continue the lusting until busting a nut. its really annoying. I cant stand this anymore ill go for a week perfectly and then on day 8 ill say you know what why not it wont hurt, and then bam im jerking off again. half of me feels like i dont truly want to stop because i just continue to do it. Its either i hate PM or i want it desperately. there seems to be no way to win. the only real way is by getting a girlfriend. but even that is such a pain why does everything have to be such a drag. maybe its because my brain is in post relapse mode so im not in the best place mentally but it just seem impossible. At this point im just ranting, and bitching about all of my problems but i feel like this is the only place i can do this so im just getting it all out. i tell my friends about noFAP and porn addiction but they just say we dont have a problem we just jerk off when we want we're teenage boys thats normal im sure it wont be like this in 5 years by then we will have girls, and life wont suck as much as it does now in fact lifes not even bad its what you make of it. that just hit me like damn maybe im just a depressed, and people around me are having fun. but there a problem with what he said. 5 years ago im sure he thought the same damn thing oh ill have a girlfriend , and life will be cool. sike thats not the case. most of the of my other friends get pussy for the most part like at least the bare minimum. the fartherst i have done with a girl is a kiss and that was in the 8th grade!!! WTF im 17 how much longer is this gonna last im losing hope.
dang that sucks how old are you? ask yourself do you really want to stop? why havent you done it already. TRY FUCKING HARDER QUIT PORN QUIT PORN QUIT PORN slowly get off dont jump in immmediatly transition from hardcore porn to soft core like instagram. then try only jerking off once a day, and then 3 times a week, and then once a week its a gradual journey. TAKE A HOLD OF YOUR LIFE, AND BE A MAN!!!
Still going... just.
Brother, you know that watching any kind of porn for simple pleasure counts as a relapse.
We try to find excuses to mark a "how far does it count as a relapse". Whether the content you consume is light or strong, it is still XXX. Of course you can start by stopping watching porn on Web pages and going to Instagram but keep in mind that it is still porn. Keep in mind that going to Instagram will make you want more content. If you think about it for a moment, you will realize that this is how addiction started, at least that's how it was in my case. That was climbing until I went to the videos and I couldn't stop watching it: /.
I'm 18 years old. I really want to leave it forever. Today I have a whole day without Porn and I feel very anxious. But I cinfured my web pages with parental controls. In addition, search engines have parental control with some extra "hacks", because when I try to enter a porn page it leads me directly to a video on YT of how porn affects my life and body.
I am in. Day 0.
The weekeng is coming and I struggle in that time. I'm hoping to get outside more, meet with friends, work out.
Today I also updated my anti porn extensions both on chrome and firefox. any adult website is automatically blocked. I use blocksite.
I've uninstalled it before, but at least between me and a relapse there is one more layer. And that can be the difference I need to stay on track.
Good luck fellas. We're here, therefore doing the right thing.
Day number 2. I'm trying to learn some new stuff about my brain and how to overcome urges which is my biggest problem.
yeah lost yesterday thought i could avoid my saved porn but i failed early morning. Just deleted all of them tho and unfollowed some stuff on social media. Stopping urges seems to be hard for me planning on doing research about stopping them. edit: I FORGOT ABOUT THE PANIC BUTTON still dont know what it does but planning on pressing it whenever i feel the urges
Day 2/7 completed!
Day 1/7 done. Finally crossed the first hurdle. I have made a strong plan this time for the long haul. Hopefully I can ace the challenge this time.
Day 0: the trap.
Victory is never certain. Don't give into temptation even in the slightest.
