    So I’ve been trying to quit for a while and found myself in a situation were I keep relapsing I felt my drive to quit weaken but I want to keep trying I notice I started giving in when I have a moment of weakness I don’t want to keep giving in to pmo I am asking for advice on what I should do or would at least like to know what you do to prevent yourself from pmo it all went down when I started using my tablet for porn witch I keep by my bed ugh so I think if I move it away that may be a step in the right direction but I would really appreciate any advice

    Good idea to place your tablet far away. But Your craving for porn is going may cause you to get out of bed to get the tablet. If you catch yourself leaving your bed to get the tablet for the specific purpose of PMO, walk very slowly and think about what you are doing. I don't mean to sound harsh, but the slow walk will drag out the process into a "walk of shame". Every time you do that slow walk to your PMO machine, it is a "walk of shame".
    Here are some things that have helped me:
    1. Stay out of your bed as much as possible.
    2. Eliminate privacy - keep your door open (and your window curtains)
    3. Try to be in public as much as possible.
    4. Use the NoFap panic button
    5. Find an activity to do when you get a craving. Instead of succumbing to the craving, do the activity. Mine is push-ups.
    I hope that this helps!

    Maybe Only use your bed for sleep? Be personally accountable by using tech in public spaces? Find an online or IRL accountability partner? Keep away or moderate the use of things that can make you bored and or lonely? Journal your experiences? Join a friendly NoFap discord? Evaluate what environments, conditions and feelings create the incentive? Pick up a new hobby? Searchuup the science behind NoFap? Spend a fair measure of time outdoors? Exercise? These are just some of the things I think could help you until you get a good enough handle on this.
