    I have found that since I have started trying to achieve nofap I have felt more guilty than I used to. Ever since I started masturbating I used to feel guilty for a short time afterwards but after a while I would forget about it. Since starting nofap I have found that the guilt is more persistent and stays with me for longer. It is as if there is a direct correlation between the amount of time I have been able to stop masturbating and the amount of guilt that I feel. Does anyone else feel like this and is there anyway to counteract this?


    Thanks

    Maybe just try transforming your guilt into pride? You're leaving your source of guilt behind, after all.
     
  3. I agree with him.

    I always feel BAD after fapping session and deep down I know that this is not how I supposed to be. Usually my guild will disappear after a week of withdrawal

    The guilt is a protection mechanism. Don't stay stuck in it, but listen to that voice that knows pmo is not good for you. That is the truth.

    inflict yourself some random punishment. It will make you feel better. Like, standing in the rain for 10 minutes.

    When ever you are starting a new habit, in the begining we all experience "pain period". This is the time when you go out of your safe zone and do something new. This ofc is not always pleasant but it is normal, so I think you have nothing to worry about. Just keep pushing trough!

    Hey,

    I've literally gone through something similar recently. The guilt is coming about due to the way you are looking at it. You are pushing in the direction of a particular goal and this goal isn't any normal goal. It is to rise above your carnal / animal desire. It is no easy feat. What i've found has helped me recently to this end is thinking about the lessons i've learned from the relapse. Transform that guilty energy into a learning about what you can do better. Also i'm not sure how much reading you've done on NoFap and the yogic outlook on sex, semen etc but I'd look at that. It has provided me with untold realisation about what this sex energy is.

    Here's my personal opinion about guilt & PMO: If you do it and you allowed your mind to wander in thoughts of guilt, you won't get out of it. That would make you masturbate every time because you'd feel lonely and miserable and 'what-the-heck.' All you have to do is ignore it and complete your mission of recovery.
