    I’m having a really down day. I went out in town last night for a few drinks with friends. This was my first time out since entering recovery after my breakup. I felt really low in confidence and very anxious. I’m 77 days free of PMO but I haven’t encountered any ‘superpowers’. I feel that the brain fog has cleared. I’m now fully aware of the issues I’ve been using PMO to escape from - social anxiety, low self esteem, self hatred. I’m getting counselling to try and overcome these issues. I know these feelings are not rational but they are incredible heavy and overpowering. I don’t want to use antidepressants and will continue to avoid going down that path. Hopefully the C.B.T. will produce results along with my own reading and research.

    You`re just like me! I also didn`t know what to do or got other bad habits except porn. When you`re feeling bad about doing nothing ... well then do something. I`m still wasting toooo much time in front of my PC. Find some hobbys or some interests. For example I started with Breakdance, playing guitar, rap, drawing and learned russia because it`s my native language. Today I only do Breakdance, play guitar and draw. If I didn`t started with drawing, I wouldn`t had the goal to be game artist/designer. I`m also trying to do more something with family and friends (with real friends, not fake friends). If you get older you will regret that you did nothing, trust me in your age I only watched porn and played video games. If I started earlier with Breakdance, man I`m pretty sure I could a backflip.

    1. Write you journal.
    2. Don't put the bar to high. Step by step. First 7 days then 14 then 30 then 90.
    3. Create your own experiment. Look for things that can help you to step back from urges. There are dozens of journals from people here that can help.
    4. Get a substitute activity that will always replace Faping. There can be more than one.
    5. If you are an addict, recognize it and remember that Fnatasies and other stuff can be part of your addiction too.
    6. Meditate it will build a more tsronger brain.
    7. Don't dispear, sleep well, eat well and Try to overcome your sex addiction before trying to put yourself 100 challenges more on the side.
    8. Use the forum whenever you feel alone.

    Hope that helps.

    Hmm... maybe be focused about why are you doing NoFAP or why you want to reach a month without PMO. To be motivated everyday. It`s a hard challenge, so I spent a less time in front of my PC and did something, for example hobbys like sports or anything. Find some interests, set yourself a goal and fight for it!

    Uff guys, NoFAP really opens my eyes. I must immidiately change my nutrition. I ate a lots of junk foods at the evening, hadn`t a breakfast, was hungry for hours! Today at night I woke up and had HEAVY stomach pain. I already thought that I would puke. Maybe that is also a reason why I am very lean... well maybe not lean but thin with 154.35 lb.-mass (70kg I hope?!) and a height with ca. 1,83m...
    So thankfully to my family who gave me tips what should I eat etc. ^^
    Also Happy Easter! (Well I think it`s to late... hehe)
  16. - avoid any kind of triggers, whatever yours are, since it is always a downward slope once provoked by anything sexy
    - it almost always leads to relapse since your brain will relentlessly hasstle you very cleverly until you cave and PMO
    - disconnect your internet for 30 or 90 days is the best way to succeed and what I might have to do if I am not successful this time
    - porn blockers don't always work, and will power method is difficult to say the least
    - good luck buddy
  17. Thank you so much . And I like the the idea of taking it step by step... I will definitely try 7 or 14 days.
  18. Day 2/90 for me. Not bad so far.
