Relapsed again. I really need to stop watching films and film videos on youtube ASAP. It really triggers me badly. It's not like they have pornographic content in it but they trigger me a lot. I will delete my hardisk full of movies and probably stop watching youtube. I haven't had too much time for self development but I guess i can at least decrease all my triggers.
Good morning evereyone! Glad to see so many people checking in here
I am also checking in. I failed today, but am going to get back up and keep aspiring for greater things.
Finished a decent workout, preoccupied with getting into school for the semester and figuring out a solid study routine. I have confidence I will figure it out in the next two to three weeks.
I appreciated. Reading books is one of the things that helped me a lot.
Check in - I doing great. I stopped posting here for a while because my laptop wasn't working. Anyway, I`m dealing with withdrawal symptoms (lack of sleep, headaches and lack of focus) but I'll cope with it. Something that is helping me is having a excellent performance at my job.
Being excellent in activities helps A LOT to heal from addictions, because addictions and excellence shares the same neural pathways...
I feel you man, that why I stopped using my digital phone, now I use one of those old-fashioned phones (with buttons) only to make calls. It has been working amazingly, and I'll keep living this way until I'm 3 months free from porn, or when I get some contacts to develop my dating life.
PS: I'm keeping a relapse prevention journal, and I'm loving it. I write down my emotions throughout the day, I dig deep to know the roots of them and how they affect my behaviors. I also take notes on my withdrawal symptoms, victories of the day, exercises that my counselor tells me to do and so on and so forth.
Relapsed yesterday, back to square one.
Day 7 going for 365
Day 19 - Doing good, I mean, I'm depressed but that's life, I guess.
Checkin'.I have started to do some affirmations and daily exercises again. Also taping them on the wall for daily reminders. Had urges to watch porn yesterday. Need to be more aware of my actions.
I realise after all this years of addiction which took all the dopamine for me to be motivated to do anything in my life. I don't think i will have enthusiasm as something more normal as a person during these EARLY stages of my streak. It can lead to anxiety of setbacks or simply boredom.
You got this everyone. It is so good to read what everyone is doing to stop.
I've been relying on a powerful filter that somebody told me about on NoFap. I'm definitely using it as a crutch right now (I unblocked one site after the 30 minute wait for legitimate use, but then forgot to unblock it which led to a relapse today) but I need to start somewhere.
I hope one day to have the discipline I used to have to chose not to view pornography even if the path is easily in front of me.
Hey everyone, i'm returning to nofap again after a long absence due to frustration and anger with myself. I went down the rabbit hole of pmo again and I did the unthinkable of wasting my money on toys. That just made the depression and emptiness worse! So i've decided enough is enough. I'll journey with you guys until I can kick this lifelong addiction once and for all. It's gonna be rough but I know I can do it.
Good luck man, We got this!
This addiction also made me depressed as hell man, I`ve been dealing with suicide thoughts for years. But in my experience, a lot people simply doesn`t know how to effectively quit porn, stands to reason, the solution is knowledge. I`ve been reading some books about this addiction and now, overcoming this shit is definitely possible.
