    I am new to NoFap.

    This weekend was rough. I was about seven days clean when I relapsed this weekend. It was the worst, but there was some success tonight. I started to watch P on my phone, but found the strength to walk away. I immediately went to shower, knowing that I would probably fall into M. I almost did. I said, "no" several times out loud, and remembered that the promise of the moment never comes through, but always transforms into guilt and shame. After a bit, the temptation was gone and I am going to bed with a clean conscience. So, let this be an encouragement to you guys. You really can walk away. As the 1 Corinthians says, there is "always a way out" of temptation. On top of that, I discovered NoFap tonight which seems to be a pretty good place to be.

    Ready for Fapless February.

    Good job walking away. That is a big win.

    I had a personal two week streak going before I started NoFap. I used to edge a lot and I thought I could gradually stop masturbating if I just allowed myself to edge and only orgasmed every once in a while. I didn't understand how the dopamine cycle works and how solo sex really prevents you from bonding with another. I always ended up returning to porn. It all makes sense now.

    I suggest taking time to read through the introductory/educational material, watch videos on porn addiction. It helps to have an underpinning of knowledge, if you don't already have it.
