Decided to test the waters and try hard mode for 7 days. The plan was to PMO on day 8 and then try hard mode again for 14 days and then PMO again on day 15 and do hard mode again for 21 days and so on. I'm currently on day 10 and have noticed some benefits (confidence, productivity, hair, etc.). Here's the problem: I have the greatest urge to turn back to porn (as I had planned to once day 7 was complete), but I'm on day 10 now. I feel like I can't get off this ride because if I do, all the benefits I received these past 10 days will disappear immediately (hair falls off, productivity slips and confidence flops). I'm grateful for these 10 days and I was very surprised that I could make it this far, but I feel like even if I engage in natural sex that I will undo all these benefits. I realize that the point of NoFap is to foster healthy sexual relationships with real human beings, but I fear of even doing that. I don't know if everyone feels this way at some point in their journey or it's just me, but I would like some advice on how to proceed. Should I stick to my plan of increasing the intervals incrementally or just ride this one out for however long and deal with the consequences in case I stop? I genuinely like what I've gotten so far, but I feel absolutely miserable and I am not really enjoying any of it, and I'm scared to get off this ride!
