Hey guys, I'm on day 8 of my no-PM-streak now. And the Urges and Problems are getting bigger and bigger. I'm completely honest when I say, I've never made it past day 12 or something so far. The first few days of my streak, I always feel confident, strong, motivated and so on. But, normally as just now, on day 7 the Problems arrive. Problem 1: My urge to masturbate grows enormously strong. It is hard to withstand and concentrate on something else. It seems to control my whole thinking and working and interferes with most things I do. Usually, I get along by praying, going to the gym, other Sports, Music and studying. Wouldn't there be Problem number 2... Problem 2: I have a girlfriend which I love very much. Ironically, as just now, Sex appears to get a lot harder and more boring while on a streak. Somehow, I seem to have lost my interest, stamina and joy in our mutual Sex life whenever I'm on a longer streak than 7 days. It's tough. I intend to create a better sexual health for me and also for our relationship but, Problem 2 makes this very difficult. Is this "flatlining"? Problem 3: Given Problem Number 2 and the fact that this does not happen when I'm not rebooting, "the urges" (Problem 1) and "the lost satisfaction of mutual Sex" (Problem 2) form an alliance with each other. And so, the monster grows even bigger that urges, begs, tempts, angrily commands and entices me into masturbating. Please if you have any tips or advice for me how to cope with these Problems, I would be happy to hear them!!! Stay alert and strong y'all!!!
