    This might be a weird confession but I know it's a problem. I was addictive to watching hentai of a certain anime character and it wasn't recently when I realized that I was doing it at least once a day and it had been going on since 2014. I tried nofap before but I relapsed many times but now. I'm currently on my 5th day of nofap. It hasn't been hard but I'm just having thoughts of what new video of porn was uploaded or image of the anime character. This is currently my longest without fapping or watching porn. I don't want to relapse because I know it's gonna be frustrating to start over again. I know I can keep going without watching hentai but the thought of a new image being uploaded gets me curious. Anyone have advice? also I currently in the flatline stage. I'm trying to keep clean untill July to see if there's any change in me.
  2. Welcome! Another joins our ranks :)

    Well to be honest, if you can get a streak to July right now, that means you were never addicted in the first place. This is likely gonna be a tough journey with quite a few relapses, so I would not get super worked up about them. Just harness the pain to motivate you to continue man.

    Right now you should focus on learning more about porn addiction, quitting porn, and habit replacement. Ultimately, those things will get you out of this mess. YBOP is a good resource for the brain and p. Universal Man, Noah Church, and *** are all very great YouTubers that talk about quitting pm.

    If you relapse, make sure you learn from it and fix the problem so you don't relapse the same way again.

    Thank you. I have seen universal man's videos but not the others you mentioned thank you :)
  4. I recommend his Man of Action series (general life-improvement foundational strategies) and Sexual Self Mastery Series (sexuality specific). No problem.

  6. Np. Btw, why do you track your relapses this year? For most people, negative motivation doesn't work well. Also, that just underscores the great progress you've made and the great learning you've done from those relapses.

    I actually try and see it in a positive sense.. so for example I used to PMO twice a day on avg..(700 per year roughly) if I was counting my old “normal” it would be over a hundred by now.. right now it’s 13 for this year so to me that shows me that I’m still way ahead of where I used to be and so still making great progress.. just in a different way.. it’s probably not for everyone but it does make me look really hard at myself when I have to put another ❌ up as well..

  8. Ok, fair. But personally I wouldn't stand looking at a wall of X's every time I come here.

    Hi, welcome to the community

    I would recommend you to stay in touch with members and read their success stories. You may also learn tricks to avoid the short-term pleasure and to face the temptations.

    Be AWARE of your habits and control what you see and what/who you spend your time with.

    It's also important to limit the usage of social media. In addition, never be free! Use your free time as much as possible and do sports, exercise, attend classes, etc.

    This video contains everything that you need to know about porn addiction. Lastly, here is a collection of ways to deal with the urges which worked great for me.

    ֍ You got this my friend ֍

    Your thoughts aren't your life brother. They are void. It's only you who can give them power by feeding them or giving them your energy or attention.

    Since you have exposed your mind to watching these certain things, it's now filled with filth and would keep reminding you to take it back to the world of instant gratification. That's what you are experiencing it now.

    I am afraid that merely trying won't break the shackles of this addiction. You have to aim for sexual integrity with all your seriousness.

    See, that's what your genuine self wants.

    But merely thinking about " not wanting to relapse" would only make relapse. Think all the physical, mental or spiritual activities you can start working on. Think about the hobbies, passions or works you can engage yourself in.

    Curiosity to check would only lead to your downfall. You are desperately moping for something that you desperately hope you would never have to do.

    What if there's no change? Are you going to go back to that cyclical, momentary and a little pleasure?

    Commit to staying clean forever. That way, you can hope of making some good progress.

    All the best on your streak.

  14. I think the part about going til July wasn't as in he'll get there then stop NF but okay. Also by a month he'll probably learn more about NF and find his reasons why he'll do it so. But who who knows.
