    Hey. Blaming yourself is ok, feeling guilty is part of the process, but what next is the question. The secret is starting again and committing more. To exceed the previous limit. Start again and go beyond your max. Do it again and again untill you finally overcome the addiction.
    That's my strategy. Hope it will help you stop blaming yourself and keep fighting.

    Day 7 finished well now day 8.
    I had two dreams in which I really wanted to have sex. Basically the entire night was filled with intense sexual urges. Heavy erection in the morning. Now that my sexual energy is back. I have to be strong. Cause this is when the temptations are really great.
    To make it worse. I just had something like break up with a girl I loved so much. Now am endless having thoughts and feelings for her. Which I really trying to get rid of. But very strong. Infact I didn't even get in a relationship with her. She wanted friendship which I didn't want.
    So this period is gona be hard for me. Fighting two feeling and temptations at the same time.
    Family I will more prayers and support from you. These times aren't not good.
    But I will handle it one day at a time.

    Still 18 days. Some thoughts, which may not be relevant for everybody here in the first place...
    I am married with kids, i live in a Northern country in Winter and i am over 50 - meaning, i don't go out to places to hit on girls.

    Well, this sounds like a perfect basis for our challenge here, however it isn't because actually masturbating for hours in front of your screen to porn is the perfect anti-world to my life in different stages. During my more than 30 years of porn addiction (let's name it), I always had different motivations to hook myself on porn: As a teen i learned from my dad's Swedish magazines, as a student, I spent lots of money on Videos and DVDs to impress with sex-skills and overcome loneliness and as a family guy in my first marriage, I built myself a parallel world online, which ended this marriage by crossing over to the real world and cheating...

    A lot of my personal and professional failures as well as too much drinking and depressions over the years are a consequence of being glued to PORN.

    No, you’re not. You’re a flawed human being, just as every human being is flawed. It’s great that you’ve started to acknowledge your mistakes and have started to try and stop making those mistakes.

    That sounds rough. And in a way it’s a good reminder to each of us of how porn addiction starts small but then slowly infects our whole life. But it’s never too late to stop it and grow.

    Day 50. I’m happy I joined this community.
  17. Day 4. Even though I just reset, looking at the big picture, in the last 120 days or so I only PMO'd I think 2-3 times. And I want to acknowledge something positive I've noticed through this - maybe it will inspire some of you to keep going even after a few setbacks.

    Many of the distortions in my 'sexual mind' which were caused by a flood of fetishistic P over the years, have largely self-corrected after this relatively long period of (near) abstinence . I'm finding myself having thoughts and feelings about females which are back in line with my true, normal self, and it's really nice to notice this.

    What I'm saying is the dark and artificial influence of all that deviant P is starting to fade, and a healthy desire for a real romantic connection with an actual woman is returning. It's encouraging to me - I'm feeling grounded in myself again, and even a little bit hopeful about the future.

    Don't give up, friends. If you stumble, just get back up and keep trying. Try to keep the big picture in mind of what we're really trying to accomplish here. In my opinion this process is not just about day counters or achieving some kind of nofap perfection - rather it's about recovering from PMO abuse/addiction and working towards long-lasting inner change, so that we can live fuller, happier, more meaningful lives.

  20. 44/90. Just to remind about myself, friends. Still on my way. Started to attend self-defence trainings. My first engagement in sports in 15 years. Previously had no time for that: was preoccupied with well-known to you stuff and self-pity... Realized that I cannot train and ignore diet recommendations. Luckily, it turned out that internet offers not only porn content, but as well good articles on diet :) Good luck lads! Will come back soon.
