    I have been hacking away at nofap for about a year and a half. The first six months I could only manage 3-4 days and now I average about 6-7 days. I am really sick of this cycle and even more sick of saying "this time I know I'll make it". I've set a goal of twenty days. I have an album to record around that time and I will need razor sharp focus to make it the best it can be. I love the way I feel before relapsing, and I always know it will fucking suck after I relapse, but I just go on autopilot. So today will be the beginning of my longest streak.

    So don't go into auto-pilot! Sounds like you are attached to the good feelings you experience and then chase those feelings all the way to a relapse. Feelings are temporary, the good ones will leave you and the bad ones won't last forever. Meditation is a great practice for coming to terms with this. Also, beware of having expectations unless you are prepared for disappointment. Going 20 days without fapping won't guarantee you a razor-sharp focus, but it will guarantee forward progress in your recovery. You can do it if you put your mind to it!

    And going from every 3-4 days to every 6-7 days is great progress, you almost doubled your cycle! One step at a time man!
