    Are you just really busy and engrossed in what you are doing or is it just really easy this time around?

    Hey! Actually I made myself busy in other stuff like working for my thesis, making plans for travel, filling up job applications, cooking :). I did get triggers occasionally but I immediately went out in front of people and called my gf or a friend. So it has been easy so far. I am going to follow the same schedule and hopefully be okay. I just suggest everyone to keep planning something for future and keep yourself busy in preparing for those plans. Like I am planning to go Finland next week for seven days so I have been thinking about the trip for last some days instead of anything else haha :)))))

    Congratulations! That is nice, but I am not impressed. Here is why:

    "When conditions are good, you feel great, motivated and everything is going your way, it is easy to keep going. Everyone can do it. But...what do you do when things turn around and you are having a really terrible day? That is when it matters most, your decisions during those moment separates winners from the losers. Learn to endure during difficult times. When you feel like giving up but you keep going, this is when you are separating yourself from your old self. This is when you are growing.

    If you want to be extraordinary, don't do what everyone else does during difficult times."

    You won't always have fully planed days. Sometimes the strongest urge might happen in the middle of the night, how will you deal with? :)
    It is important to not relapse when it becomes hard, and it will become hard, that is unavoidable.

    Good luck :) You are close to reaching 10 days.

    I agree with you but I would like to add here that the things have not been going my way. I have a lot of stress due to studies and finding a suitable job has become a difficult task, also my gf is away for some months. So it has always been hard to control but just to keep yourself busy in other stuff is the best remedy to not get started again. Even when I work on my laptop late nights, I sometimes become so horny to open porn but again I just go out of home and walk in the cold air or sometimes call my gf late night and start a verbal fight for any reason lol. A fight with gf always take away my horny feelings. haha

    Than you are doing even better than I though :) Good job.
    Lol you got a good strategy to deal with being horny.

    Why don't you start writing a journal in your age section https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?forums/ages-25-29.19/
    It has been very helpful to me, I believe you can profit from it too.

    Writing that stuff will also help you a lot. Because it will remind you of what you went trough.

    Good luck :)
