    I sign all of these quotes! Totally correct! This crisis teaches me to deal with a crisis. That's the point.

    I have for sure a general anxiety disorder. Now it's definitively clear to me. Under certain circumstances, my brain goes nuts. And one of my ways to "deal" with it are sexual activities and PMO. Lately, I had it quite good in control, but the Corona outbreak was too much and triggered panic and the anxiety disorder again.

    Right now I'm totally relaxed, had good sleep, and I'm structurized. Trying to stay with it.

    Yes, it these are difficult times indeed. My recommendation is to STAY AWAY from the news. People are constantly watching news that just create anxiety. And we all know we like to use PMO as a way to numb ourselves to things that are uncomfortable.

    Isolation can be hard, because we as humans need social interaction. I try to see the positive in all of this. Being isolated at home prevents me from staring at hot women on the street. And it has also been a great opportunity for me to connect with my family.

    This too shall pass, my friends. Stay on the right path.

    Yes, it's a difficult time. At the beginning, this crisis had the same effect on me. But throughout the last days I was also able to kind of regather my strength (despite this crisis).
    I did this by regarding the current situation as a new level which might make abstaining from PMO even more difficult. Moreover, by creating schedules for every day I was able to avoid boredom- one of my biggest triggers for PMO.
    I hope that I will be able to succeed with this strategy for a longer period of time. Stay strong everyone!

    Why is everyone freaking so out so much? It's not like we're facing a plague or WW3. I'm not saying people should take pandemic lightly, on the contrary - we should support and help each other as much as we can, but there is no reason for panic. Most of the people here (I live next to Lombardy) are acting like they're gonna die when then they get it. I'm more worried about economic depression that will undoubtedly follow economy shutdown. People need to chill out a bit and accept the fact that the only constant in life is change and the fact that we were all sentenced to death on the day we were born. We just don't know the execution date yet. So why stress over the facts of life? Do your best, help others and try living in easy accordance with faith. Stoics would say Amor fati.

    Stoic wisdom how to act in the times of crisis Work together, do what you can, accept what you can't, adapt to new reality and be kind:

    I think of it as a blessing. If I am able to conquer my mind in isolation then I'll have the ultimate amount of self control. Up-till now we used a system, a lifestyle for prevention. But times don't remain the same. So we have to prepare for everything. We can't make excuses.

    Yes ! I agree with you. The virus has nothing to do with pen*s. It is about mental issue, it is the issue of convincing oneself. For me, even if i am locked for years, never to do fapping.

    Yes Great!, i think so. Fapstronuats shall consider it as blessings. Just as BOXING DAYS games. If any one graduate those bad days, any earthly power wouldn't stop him. It is a big opportunity to check oneself mental strength of leaving PMO for good.
