    Hi, I'm on day 27 of my reboot, the first 3 weeks were hard but managable, however, this past week I've had a surge in my urges. Today I watched some porn but I did not edge or masturbate. I am afraid if this continues I might actually MO to it in the near future.

    I was wondering if anyone has had this issue around the 4th week. and also if you want to share any tips to overcome the urges.

    thank you all in advance.

  2. Hi, and well done so far. I have been down that road too many times. There is no magic solution. My advice is to acknowledge how you feel. Accept it, but do not give in. Speak out loud to yourself if you have to, but if you give in, you will regret it.
    On the other hand, go ahead, give in. But if you do, you'll have to reset your mind, your attitude, your will power etc.

  4. I know that feeling. Don't let it get you down, brother. Forgive yourself and move forward with more resolve.

    I'm having the exact same issue as you brother. This week, the sexual urges are really skyrocketing. I had a look at some erotic images but just that. Nothing else. The previous day was also a bother as I had an erection that lasted for a long time while I was trying to sleep. I held out though and didn't search up anything lewd. Really trying to hold out here...

    Same here guys. Day 22 and sexual fantasies are stronger than ever. I was walking this morning for about 1hour and like 1/3 of the time had sexual thoughts.

    I think the key is just to try to let it go and NEVER start making the first steps. For me the first trigger is always bikini girls or purposely looking for youtube vids, where its very certain there will be some juicy images.

    Honestly have no problem with porn but masturbation is the thing for me -> Now I can clearly see that I wasnt addicted to porn but masturbation + some nasty pics. And I know if I want to succeed I cant even glance at the light material or do the first tiny step of fapping routine.

    Starting on my winning streak today. I do have a girlfriend but this lockdown makes it hard since I can't meet her.
    I felty horny tonight and fap'ed PMO. Felt guilty and sad about my self control.

    Short Term Goal - To go for 30 days without PMO
    Why? - I believe in real love.. I want to program my mind the right way. I want to feel pleasure the real way not by looking at porn. These cravings are bad.
    I would rather spend my time on something else. It doesn't move me towards my life goal of achieving the best for myself.. It can be a continuous distraction - It is an unproductive thing..

    Can you please advice on how I can control my short term cravings for PMO?
     
  8. Why look? Why do it to yourself? You know that there is no genuine pleasure in pornography and masturbation, you know it to be all an illusion.

    I made a commitment and feel proud to stick to it for 27 days now.
    I am spending my time instead of working out and building a stronger me.. mentally and physically.
    The porn has been quite debilitating in my life so far..
    I feel strong. I feel more powerful - more awake.. more clear now.
    I have had some sleepless nights.. full of stress. but I am continuing to work on myself.
    F** porn!
