    Hey all, 1st post here...I'm a 26 yo just starting my nofap journey of PMO recovery. I've realized the PMO is an issue because my tastes were starting to change into things I wouldn't go for in real life (novelty). I've had no issues with ED, but have had issues with DE in the pas which I think it at least partly from PMO in prone position. I guess my question for today is...I noticed this weekend, at 7 days PMO, that I'm checking out more women than usual when in public. Nothing obsessive, no fantasty, just noticing more women that look good. I've not came across any info on if I should try to not focus on that when in public or if that's completely normal. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

    My friend tells me to follow the 3 sec rule.
    1) look
    2) admire beauty for 3 secs
    3)move on

    That's about what happens...it seems normal, especially because I'm not obsessing, but a lot of things seem normal to us that aren't don't they.

    It is actually...

    1) look - 1 second
    2) admire - 1 second
    3) move on - 1 second

    lol

    As an alternative to either 3 second rule, only look at people you plan on interacting with you. You can check out a woman, but you better say hi to her afterwards! You never know what might come of it...

    I approve of the 3 second rule; but allow 30 seconds for really hot women. Only reeeally hot ones.

    This question is like: Is masturbation normal?

    I answer it with another question: What do you really want to achieve?

    Do you want to be in control of your body or not? Do you want to be active or passive in life?

    Those are questions that you should answer for yourself.

    I believe that if you really want something and visualise it, then you can get that or at least more of that in your life.

    When looking at any woman in public. Take only one glance and that is all. Nothing more. Just make sure that glance isnt like 30 seconds. Just 2 seconds. Not mire than that.

    There's also the other 3 seconds rule.

    1) See the girl
    2) Don't wait more than 3 seconds
    3) Approach, say hi

    I've tried that. Never ever got a positive response.
    I end up feeling lonely and miserable and inferior.
