Ok. I'm trying this again!
This was really well said. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing! It was very interesting to read. This forum has been a lot of help for me as well. Thanks to you and everyone else I didn't give up when I normally would.
I can relate to the things you wrote. To have mental images showing up, or to fantasize often leads to relapse, and it really sucks because it can be very difficult sometimes to ignore these thoughts. I find it very important to daily remind myself why I'm doing this and to be very serious about it. I wrote down multiple reasons to why I shouldn't watch P again to remind myself every day of the pain that it has caused. I have also started to notice other problems in my life that I need to work on. I cut multiple addictions durig this streak to the point where I need to find other things to do, and other things to eat. It's like had built this "castle" made out of air where I was bathing in pointless dopamine for no gain: video games, stimulating foods, PMO, pointless surfing, etc. I wasn't compeltely unhealthy thou, but it became too much, all that dopamine made me dull or too lazy to do any meaningful things in life. But nofap has slowly started to change that.
Thanks for asking. My next step after this is to be much more consistent in my training. I actually worked out today. NF will not work if I don't work out.
I will do just like you and keep going with Nofap as my new lifestyle and never look back again. PMO is not an option anymore so.. either I'll improve myself and find a girl, or I'll just keep going on all by myself. The more peace we have in our hearts the easier it gets to be alone. I want to improve myself as a man and learn more about myself and strengthen my weak points.
Today I will delete my P collection that I had stored and haven't looked at for 90+ days. And I will never EVER download or watch anything again. It's the road to unhappiness and an endless cycle of suffering. No matter if the videos can turn me on, or "trigger" strong urges. They're just pixles on a screen anyway. Real relationships are better. It's painful to delete it but that's just the addiction holding on to it (like Gollum "Myyy Precioussss!") and my old self dying. That's the pain that I'm feeling. It's not me that are suffering, it's my old self. And most important of all: I delete it to show myself that I have Self-Respect and that I love myself. I made a promise to myself and I will fulfill that promise.
Congratulations and I hope you keep posting on the site. I can't get over how much some aspects of our life are so similar. I too have to remind myself how much masturbation and porn have ruined my life when tempted to indulge in PMO. Good luck
Thanks, I'd love to keep in touch! I'm not leaving anytime soon.
By the way: I just deleted all my 73 gigs of porn and I felt nothing while doing so. Before I started this streak I had downloaded and deleted porn videos for years and years, over and over again. This time is different. It's time to take control over my life and that's what you're doing as well. NEVER give up! You are doing fantastic work! Keep it up!
Let's make men great again.
Day 0/90 days
Basically having the usual ups and downs
Day 0, again...
Thank you for sharing! Now im pumped again to start all over.. i've been failing to reach my previous best streak which is 30 days after i relapsed then.. it has been a frustrating 4/7/8 days streak and i'll relapse... but i haven't tried to remind myself on a daily basis like you.. so maybe I'll start doing that too.. lets be great, men don't fap!
Nice man! Congratulations! I have also noticed that 90 days is just a milestone. I did it once last year and then almost twice. But eversince I have been having longer and shorter streaks. I guess I haven't beat this for good, which is the reason why I have not left the forum. Yes. the goal is to never return to PMO, but I believe that constantly trying helps too! Every time it gets a little easier even if you make a mistake sometimes. Good luck to all of you on your journey and know it is worth it!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you as your journey continues. Are you going to start a journal?
Thanks! Actually today I was thinking and I came to the conclusion that I will take a break from the internet and also this forum, to focus more on my life. I also feel the need to reduce technology around me to the bare minimum. There are also certain things that I want to do, and also things I need to do, and now is the time for it. I have more energy now and it's time to fly away from the nest.
Maybe I'll come back sometime in the future. Take Care and Good Luck to Everyone!
That's a shame you always come up with interesting informative insights. I'm probably at where you where 4-6 weeks ago. I know there will be a time when have to make serious changes such as you are making but I'm not quite ready yet, but I will be. Good luck in your future endeavours
