    This is one of my longer streak, I never go beyond Day 40 and I'm scared to fail one more time.
    I usually relapse on the second week, but for the fourth time in my life I'm getting close to the 40th day. But the three times before I relapsed between day 37 and day 42.
    Urges are so bad, can't think about nothing else but sex, porn.
    And I know it's my brain trying to control me but I miss porn and cybersex so bad. I wish I could take an entire week off, just to do nothing but PMO.
    I really dont want to fail. And I think I'm gonna have a wet dream soon, which is a cause of relapse too!
    Is Day 40, something difficult for you? or is it just me?
    Any advice/support would be really appreciated!

  2. Hey, good on you for achieving 37 days!
    I would recommend taking a walk, exercising, talking to someone who can distract you, playing with a pet, remembering the feelings you had every time you relapsed, make a list of reasons why you should not relapse, and to read some journals and investing in peoples journeys via profile comments..while you are being supportive you see for yourself why you should stay strong as well.


    Reaching day 40 has been difficult for me as well, but I can and will and so can you! Believe in yourself :+)

    Where are you now is the goal of many like me. For all of us who are looking at you. Please don't lose and tell us it is possible to conquer the evil.

    You’re doing great! I’m in the same boat, I just got to 40 days and the past few days have been rough.

    If I could do the past few days differently I would get out more and stay off devices at night. I’ve been getting to close to a relapse because of them and wish that I avoided psubs better but today is a new day for me to move forward.

    Hope you are doing well!

    Thank you for reminding that. Few years ago I was happy when I could reach 3 days without PMO and now here I am. Thank you that's very comforting.
