A Progressive Challenge-A different kind of challenge- all levels

Discussion in 'Events & Challenges' started by DerNeuMann, Nov 13, 2017.

  1. I relapsed today, I was on day 3 of 7 but now I will start with 0 of 7 again. I have not lost my motivation and this failure will not stop me.

    Post for all guys on this thread. Please read.

    When I look at the many good streaks on this thread, as well as the constant encouragement you give each other, and at the determination to not give up after relapses, I am so moved.

    When I started this thread, I intentionally tried to make it unique on the forum and it is. You guys have become an amazing and close group of men who stick together and try not to let anybody fall back. We work here every day to fight our common enemy and the more we stick together like this, more of us will succeed.


    Keep up the awesome work for each other tand keep your eyes on the prize, a masturbation-free life for most but a porn-free life for all. You all know now that porn is the vicious monster that lurks behind even harmless looking photos. It's the snare that grabs you suddenly and pulls back into that dark place where you hide from life and other people in order to appease porn's constant and unquenchable appetite for the best hours of your life as a young man. You won't be young forever and it will go by faster than you think.

    If you fapped an average of twice a day for three years (some days more, some days less) that's 2,190 times. If the average time for each fap was 10 minutes (ha ha) you will have spent 365 hours fapping in three years.

    Don't you have anything better to do with your time?

    It's very good that you didn't watch P. But if I were you, I would wait with the reward until you reach a goal. So maybe set a little easier goal, maybe go for 26 days again, and then you can get the game. Up to you, but that is how I would do it.

    I am impressed by the way you have changed your attitude for the better. I believe that you are really improving. Perhaps this time it will be a record streak for you

    Hey man, I just want to say, respect! Therapy is not easy and you have a great attitude towards it.

    Good to hear!

    You will reach it! And then on to the next one. You can do it

    Day 28/31 - Today was a lot better. Thank you, @TC10 @DerNeuMann for your support!
    I once again found out that the key here is trust. I have a hard time trusting life and the future - no doubt because of many years of PMO and other detrimental behaviour!! But I will turn this around, I am doing 28 days. I am facing my problems and I am not giving in or giving up, even though it is heart-wrenching painful some times.

    I am going to take a cold shower now.
    See you guys, take care. Don't give in, get out and go for a walk. Walking always helps!

    0/5. I did everything to prevent it. I don't even know how it happened

    Guys, relapses are just part of the recovery. If one of your big triggers is stress, then dealing with the problems causing your stress can really help. If stress wasn't the trigger then maybe boredom or just seeing something that turns you on. In all of these cases, your brain's limbic system just takes you over. If you can make it more difficult to reach into your pants that can really help. I'm serious about that. See if you can help yourself by lowering either stress or boredom. I know that's difficult depending on one's unique life situation, so none of us are judging you, believe me.

    Anyway, relapses don't make anyone into a joke. We all have suffered through those feelings. I had more relapses than the two of you combined times 10 but finally I got past them with great difficulty. Nofap is difficult and takes the things learned from many relapses to stop for long term. You can both do it. You are not weak or you wouldn't want to stop.

    2/14.

    Had a really strange thing this morning. I woke up and I had a sort of wet dream while I didn’t fantasize, and as far as I remember I didn’t had a sexual dream. So I definitley am not gonna count this as a relapse, because I could not help it in any way, and I’m being honest.

    Besides that, had a really nice and sociable day. Tiring but nice.

    As far as I can see you’re going trough a hard time, so screwing it up so now and then is not strange. Don’t blame yourself too much. Please don’t give up.

    Day 2 was good not much of a struggle
    But I did feel awful and weak. Could this be because I'm in a flatline or because of my relapse?

    Yes to both. I'm guessing that your relapse orgasm was either very strong (not surprising after 2 weeks) or you did it more than once. Either way, it can cause a flatline. Nothing to worry about, though. It will pass but be glad of the low urges. Don't worry. You're doing fine and nothing unusual. Good for you not to be afraid to ask!

    Day 58/60, I believe. This journey is crazy. Life is crazy. Sorry I'm pretty inactive these days, I don't know... I'm in a bit of a slump these days, but I'm trying to stay on the bright side. I will reach my goal, and so will each and every one of you if you set your hearts to it. Stay strong.
