    Hey, i just want to share my simple thought with you and warn you no to fall into the same trap i used to fall(and still do, but im doing slightly better now).
    Don't ever think that becaue you have relapsed your day is wasted and your are not able to do anything productive for the rest of it . You can still do that exercise that you have planned for yourself or that meditation session or anything else you wanted to do. Worst thing you can to is to be idle after relapse, which won't bring you anywhere but into binging. And you don't want to find yourself binging. That type of thinking( "i relapsed, so the day is wasted") is just making an excuse. Don't let the relapse be an excuse.
    How often we are pumped during our streaks and when the relapse comes, we dwell on it and throw in the towell all the things we have commited to do? Don't do that. Be strict about your goals, even when the worse time comes. This way you will create the discipline that will help you to leave this addiction behind.
    thanks

    Thanks Man. That's a timely post and good motivation for me to get back up and try again and not just sit in self-pity.

    Every time you get knocked down you get back up. Eventually you will succeed.


    The key is to not cave in, and binge.

    This was something I had always had problems with, and gets worse the higher the streak you had before relapsing.

    Remember that NoFap may be a lifelong endeavour for the most of us, so binging is never the way to go.

    That being said, your relapse is always your responsibility; your relapse means you fucked up and you drop your guard.

    Push on gents.
