Reading is a great outlet and replacement to PMO. Just don't read erotic books.
Reading normal books? Or reading *P books?

leave the thread bro, but don´t leave the forum. it takes about 18 to 24 months to fully heal the brain. during that time you´re still in risk of relapse so come to the forum, stay with brothers, motivate yourself. better safe than sorry.
yeah, i saw a video the other day and the speecher told that getting addicted to internet porn is extremely easy and faster than internet gambling, shopping, etc. kind of scary right? too bad for us that back in the days there was no information on this shit.
we´re the 60´s smokers of the new addiction
excellent bro, keep going!!
reading what? erotic novels? that´s a problem!! but if you reading trivial literature, that´s not a problem. in fact reading is very good for the body and mind. i´m reading 3 books currently . keep going bro, you´re doing great!!
yeah, that´s really trick bro. long periods of time (boredom potencial), home alone (isolation potencial), acess to internet (excitement potencial). that´s a really dangerous combination of factors bro. you got to change something. remember that the addiction can caught us really quickly, especially when we think "we got this".
here´s a guy who broke a 180 days streak, in a blink of an eye.
Time to clean up out act, maximise our energy and sharpen our minds. Stay strong brothers and sisters.
Ok just did a solid two weeks and everything was going fine but I stupidly slipped up today. Just got bored and then messed up, so silly...
But I’m back to do the 90 days, I’ve done it before and it’s a while since I signed up to do it on this. So day 1...believe!
Thanks bro. Not much I can change since the wife needs to work, I'm retired and need to take care of the house, cooking etc. Definitely not bored though as I always have something to do and workouts, jamming with friends, etc. The only thing I could do it get rid of internet but then I loose nofap as well. Thanks for the video. Very useful info. Cheers!
0 days nofap.
It has been awhile since I have been on here. Here is an update. Read that book by Jasmin Lee Cori called The emotionally absent mother. It is really helping me see things. I did not get near the affection and attention I needed. Affection was frowned upon. My grandma once told me how worried her anf my aunts were Becuase I was being ignored so bad. I was not allowed to seek affection. Affection was frowned upon. My dad is terrified of it. My mom is the least affectionate person on the planet. I think I am a person who needs lots of it. I closed myself off from it. I became a robot.
The good news is that I am coming out of it. Small tokens of affection from my crew at work are getting into my heart. I feel connected to them. A hello from a stranger gives a feeling of warmth. I used to try so hard to be extra friendly so I could get someone to care about me. I tried do hard I did not let my heart be touched by a hello and smile back. I am making eye contact with people. It feels amazing with girls.
I need lots of touch and attention. This may sound strange, but I am hiring a professional cuddler. You can pay professional cuddlers for platonic cuddles. Some consider it a form of therapy. I am allowing myself to be loved by others. I think this will be very healing for me. Maybe it will also take the desparation away and I will be able to find a nice lady to be with to share affection. That brings a bit of tear to the eye. I want affection and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. It is in fact human.
