    Hey guys!

    So I have been here on NoFap for ages - I have read most of the advices, kept a journal for a long time and always got huge bursts of motivation to finally complete a 30 day challange. But I always failed! I think my best was 15 days or so, most of the times 5 or less.

    My problem (I think) is that I am very motivated to pursue this journey as I feel how bad masturbation is for my mental health - but only in the first couple of days. Then I loose this motiviation. It's not even that I get strong, unbeatable urge, I just think things like:
    "NoFap is not really helpful"

    "Masturbation is good and healthy if done in moderation"
    and, I think the most 'convincing' thought:
    "I have to 'train', to be able to last longer in bed if I will have sex with a girl"

    So I know these are thoughts are not 'true', especially the last one. I have been with a girl and even though I didn't last long in bed it was never really a problem in the relationship.

    Furthermore, I just can't do anything in moderation, so one MO most likely leads to multiple MO and PMO's (I think I will do a seperat post about it).

    Do you have any advice for me on this matter? I do feel how much I change for the better even after 5 days, but this doesn't stop me to fall for it again....

    Thank you!

    Those exact same things have led me to relapse many times. What helps me is every single time those thoughts appear in my head, I immediately identify them as lies and replace them with the truth. Eventually it will become second nature and before you can even finish these thoughts, you won't believe them.
