    This Sunday I relapsed and fapped after 127 days of NoFap. Then i fapped four times yesterday. Went completely insane.

    My mind sometimes makes rationalizations for fapping. It says that fapping in moderation would be okay. But no. For me at least, fapping is always perverted. I can't do it in a healthy way, it's not wholesome, it's not good.

    I'm a better person when I'm not fapping. I feel better, I function better and people around me appreciate me more.

    Fapping reduces my willpower. Giving in to the urge to fap and orgasm massively rewards giving in to destructive urges. Doing NoFap is crucial for increasing willpower.



    No matter what, rain or shine, no fapping this August. And no p subs.

    This is life or death for me. Fapping is killing me. My parents and younger siblings need me alive. For their sake, I will fight!

    I have been on the wagon since June. My problem isn't porn (although I occasionally edge which is bad). And I have successfully broken the back of the impulse to masturbate or orgasm. I know it's a bit early to celebrate (60 days in this streak) but I have done a 110 days before and the urge to M and O has subsided from being a constant itch to the occasional thought.
    My real problem is fantasizing about women (real ones not pornstars). I don't M or O to it but I do like to lie in bed and conjure up these scenarios. It is a problem because I can't sleep without it and I will sometimes lie in bed for hours doing nothing productive at all. A huge waste of my time and energy.
    I started last week and decided to swear off it completely for 3 months. Unfortunately I had a wet dream last night. I didn't induce it in any way (went from something completely unrelated to a 10 second scenario but I feel like I could have stopped it) but I was so depressed about it that I relapsed.
    So I have two goals (and should set up two timers). The first is to make it to 120+ days with no PMO. I am half way there. The second is to stop fantasizing. As you can see, that isn't going so well. I came back here to draw support from all you warriors who are engaged in the same inner battles so that the next reset goes better.

    Si ricomincia da giovedì 31 agosto 2017 ore 19,00 :)
    Continuerò un combattimento, perché ora sò che ho il diritto e quindi il dovere di vivere una vita più felice, non perché merito ma perché voglio perché sono partiti per essere felice.

    I'm in. I have a couple of accountability partners (one by design, one by "coincidence" - both great!) who I'm being very honest with, despite the shame of my relapses.
    Previous streaks: 6-11-14. Relapsed yesterday and back on my feet today. Tough battle, but I will not be defeated - not because of my strength, but because Jesus is my strength and my refuge, and will not let me drown in sin, but will rescue and discipline me for life and godliness.

    Here Goes. I have tried occasionally to find help on the internet to control PMO. As luck would have it - I discovered the nofap community and this forum 2 days ago - just right in time to read up all about it and start the August streak! I am taking this as a good luck omen that I am going to succeed this time :)))

    Im 18. Been on PMO since 10. I've been on the NoFap frontlines since 2014/2015 at the age of 16. But before I discovered NoFap I had gone 41 days without PMO and it was a nightmare because I hadn't known about the tools to help guide me through the struggle at that time (aged 15). I've gone one 30+ day streak but that in 2014/2015. And since then its binge after binge,10 days,12 days and a couple 7 days as well as a lot of under 3 day streaks.

    This year I've hit one 6 day streak and one 10 day streak.

    AND TODAY marks my 8ith day. CIROC BOTTLES,MANGO JUICE BOTTLES,A LOTTA ICE,PLASTIC CUPS AND ALOTTA STRAWS. REAL G's PARTY, AND JUMP ON GYAL LIKE JEFF HARDY,AM SO HAPPY I WANNA CELEBRATE BUT AM BROKE,AND ITS ALMOST 1 AM.
