    Hello @PolarOtter Is fantasy a new behavior for you? Porn has dampened my ability to fantasize, so I wonder if this is a sign your mind is recovering from porn. I've spent time around 12-step tables and found it valuable on many levels.

    "Giving in to temptation is for the weak, and we are strong. My will to succeed shall not be broken." Whoo, I want to put that on a banner and hang it on a wall!

    Checking in before heading to bed. Had strong urges lately, probably triggered by anxiety and boredom. Stayed really busy and the urges passed easily. Getting a lot of motivation from reading posts in this forum, so thanks guys.

    That is an interesting question... I guess I am not quite sure, since I always just simply went directly to the porn. Your comment really helps, because I have continued to struggle, so thank you! Added to that, it doesn't help that I accidentally exposed myself to the guy across the street (I sleep naked and got up to close my bedroom window and he was doing some sort of construction on his third floor window... at 1:19AM!? and I am sure that he saw me). I am so weak right now.

    Checking in, before reaching the 2 week mark.

    Have been feeling good this week:
    • more energy,
    • desiring more social contact rather than seeking isolation
    • having more laughs - was finding it hard to find things funny after pmo (the guilt and shame?)
    • urges haven't been too strong
    • more confidence
    • less anxious thoughts
    Leading upto 21days has always seemed to be my unstable point so staying vigilant, thanks for the support guys

    Checking in, and the urges are a bit strong today. Felt tempted to give in last night on YouTube, but I ended up saying no.

    It’s my third straight long day of video editing, and though all my usual access routes are blocked, my mind easily wanders as it looks to take a break from the constant focus of editing. When my mind wanders, it easily wanders into fantasy. I have to work really hard to keep unhelpful thoughts out of my mind. It’s been just over two weeks now, and I am not going to let lazy complacency doom me again. I will fight the thoughts that come my way.

    @PolarOtter the amount of time you’ve put together man without a relapse isn’t easy at all. I’m proud of how far you’ve gone. It’s an incredible accomplishment. Know that what you’re doing is extremely difficult as I can attest, and you’re doing amazing. In spite of the struggle right now, don’t give up. We’re all cheering you on and we’re for you.

    I also really need an AP. Seems like I can't even get a few day streak now, though I had been consistently getting 10-15 day streaks. Hit me up if you're interested.

    Hey Guys, still staying clear of porn. But two days ago, talking with a girl turned into sexting as she sent me some nudes and we MOd. But I don’t know if I should consider this as a relapse. What do you guys think?

    Don't weaken now! You have the tools you need to prevail. Crazy things are going to happen.

    Thanks for having me in the group! I myself have 2 addictions, but I won't say what's the 2nd one because it's a bit unusual and because I don't want anyone else trying it. I've stopped both of my addictions before and saw great results around the 15-day mark. But in the past few months I've kept my 2nd addiction while still doing NoFap, and that's where my progress was getting slow. I now stopped this 2nd addiction and I'm also on day 2 of NoFap. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get another high streak again since I'm 100% rewiring my brain already without neither of my addictions! Best of luck to all of you! I'll be checking in daily to see how others are doing because its helpful to hear others out.

    I’m seeing some kick ass progress from some of you guys. @PolarOtter, you’ve got this brother. You’ve got a great streak going, and a few minutes of porn is not worth giving up all the work put in so far. Addiction can be so insidious sometimes. The last couple of nights the devil on my shoulder has been telling me to “just take a peek at some porn.” Well, we all know that there’s no such thing as “just a peek”. I’m fighting this shit like it’s an intruder in my house, and all I’ve got is my fists. No mercy! That devil is gonna have to do better than that..

    Hey guys,

    Really like the concept here and your posts - I have read the rules and would like to become an AP.

    27yr old in the UK. First came across nofap 5yrs ago and hit a 60 day streak but have never achieved the same again. I've overcome pied and seen it return multiple times since as I've wrestled between reduced porn use and denial.

    But I know it's affecting my life, my drive and my current relationship - I know I'm a better me without porn and enough is enough. I want to get serious and I hope you guys can help. Hopefully I can help some of you in return.
