Sure you can. Welcome to the group!
Welcome to our newest members.
I'm feeling a strong urge to fap. I know myself enough that it's driven by my stress over working and going to grad school and worrying that I'm not going to get everything done. I can put off the urge for a while with prayers, exercise, and distractions. But, then I start to get the images in my head and then I feel like an alternative persona takes over. I feel dissociated from my everyday self. Before I know it, I'm in my fantasy world. That's what happened the last two times I relapsed. Has anybody else experienced this, or is this just me?
We all have these moments when we get into our heads especially when stress is high and our usual distractions don't seem to work. When this happens to me, I move. Meaning I take a walk outside or away from the place I usually fapped. Or I try to change my routine to get myself out of my head.
It is normal just hang on and try new strategies to deflect your thoughts, like posting in this forum and reading and replying to other members to help each other, don't underestimate the power of a good community.
Sorry to hear about the marriage.
Surely you can count on us and with this forum to help. I'am cheering for you. We will improve every day!

Yeah buddy. Welcome to the group.
Hello. Im new to the community and would like to join this group, of still possible.
Hey I was wondering if I could join you guys 25 catholic 20 days into Pmo 90 challenge with some other personal goals. Right now struggling with gawking.
Yes you can brother. Welcome to the group. 20 days is pretty solid. In 10 years I only beat that once so you're doing well.
Yes you can join mate. Welcome to the group.
So i have a question for everyone: As Catholics we have a few more tools to deal with PMO I believe. ( sacraments, prayer, adoration, fasting etc). What spiritual practices are you incorporating to beat PMO? ( EXCUSE THE puns! It seems like every sentence I write has one
For me it’s been going to church and opening opening up to the people around me. I do my best to pray in the morning and at night. I ask the lord to help me stay on the right path and be a better person tomorrow than I was yesterday. How about you guys? Also as a check in I came to a realization that I was a pretty immature boyfriend and i wasn’t taking it seriously. I have been dating my girlfriend for about a year so saying that really hurt I am going to change that and start, as I understood it from a friend, “keeping my side of the street clean”. Any advice on how to be a better boyfriend.
The divine mercy chaplet and the rosary have been helpful to me!
I would like to join.
Also, there is a Catholic podcast (a great one) specifically for pornography addiction recovery: http://integrityrestored.com/category/podcast/
"Our mission at Integrity Restored is to help restore the integrity of individuals, spouses, and families that have been affected by pornography and pornography addiction. Integrity Restored provides education, training, encouragement, and resources to break free from pornography, heal relationships, and to assist parents in preventing and responding to pornography exposure which is so devastating in the lives of our children. We are also a resource that trains and helps clergy in assisting families at the parish level, so that the domestic church truly becomes what it is, the human space in which we encounter Christ."
Very nice and I Will have to check that out. Also it’s been a bit of a rough day and I am feeling pretty raw so any words of incouragement would be welcomed. I hope you guys are doing well and God bless
