Hello everyone, Currently I have urges and feel some withdrawal so I thought I won´t relapse and open this thread. I wanna collect your ways of overcoming urges and your tools to cope with withdrawal. So I guess I will start here and then we will build a long list. Hopefully you will post some inspiring and (new) ways to cope with it. Because the standard ways don´t work well for many people. So let´s build an epic list and help as much people as possible. So the first point I wanna mention is your mindset. I saw different mindsets working for different people. And that is the first point to understand. There is no universal truth to find which will help anybody out. For example: There may be people who follow a monk like lifestyle but you prefer to follow maybe a sports career. Different goals, different mindsets. But still you need a mindset. My mindset is that I wanna destroy the negative side effects through rebooting and then live my life the way I want to. So what do you want to achieve? Actually I recommend a fixed time on hardmode just to speed up recovery. But there are specific threads on this you can look up. That was the goal oriented part of the mindset. Then you need to be consistent. A dam is useless if it gives in the first time waves hit it. And the way to be consistent is to really wanna change your life. And I tell you that can be hard. So you may have something to do all week long but on the weekend there may be a day or two where everybody is busy and I tell you it will be a fight. So here is some "creative" way to support you in changing your life. First you need to change your environment. This can mean cleaning up your room and throw some old useless things away. Buy a new plant. Rearrange your room. Change your environment. This is really important and will support you because for your subconsciousness it will be a "new" room. You seperate yourself from your past and you need to do that to finally step forward. Never let the past drow you down. Actually many people recommend installing porn blockers but I can just speak for myself this didn´t work well for me. Because i always found a way to bypass these blockers. You need just a little bit knowledge and you will bypass every blocker. But if it works for you, great. Then go for it. Maybe a last tip for now. Try things out. Don´t just read a story and fool yourself by thinking just because it worked for somebody it will surely work for anybody. I don´t wanna fuck somebody up but just go for it and try. But please don´t fall in a deep hole just because this one method didn´t work out for you. Get up and try again and again. So this is it for the first post. I will and I hope you will too post more things in the future. Guys let´s make this a great Thread for people searching for help and new ideas. Maybe a last thing. Why should you listen to me? I mean currently me streak isn´t really big. Nearly a week. And actually i would just take tips from experts because they know what works and what don´t but I failed so often that I can tell you some things so you don´t need to experience everything on your own. I am sure this is for what this forum stands. A clever guy learns from his own mistakes but a wise man knows he didn´t need to make every mistake on his own because he can learn from the mistakes of others. So let´s start to build a life worth living. Wish you a great day guys! @DerNeuMann @goodnice 2.0 help me to spread this thread and it would be great if you could take some time to write down your points.
