    Hey guys. I'm sure a lot of people have heard the term 'someone pinch me' when in a dream, which is actually a pretty great metaphor. last few days I came across a self discovery whenever I'd start getting urges i would dig a nail into my fingertip just enough to feel some pain and discomfort. obviously not to the self harming/blood drawing level but to the point a potential erection and fantasy will die off quick enough. anyone else do this? i find i can do the fingernail thing anywhere subtley for 20-30 seconds one time and my urges dissolve almost immediately and stave off for a few more hours...!

    Some guys have talked about using a rubber-band on their wrist, that they snap hard when they get triggered or feel aroused. Kind of the same concept, I think. In the end, if it helps you, do it!

    Dude that's a pretty good idea. I think that would really work, as long as you're willing to do it. I think it's an excellent tool to have but I personally couldn't just rely on this to stay PM free...that's just me tho. I hope you have other tools in the proverbial toolbox to help in this journey. I will add this to my toolbox tho, thanks (:)

    it works cause it makes change your current focus, you state of mind.
    However, doing so you gonna relate it so something "bad" a bad emotion caused by the short pain.

    Asking yourself a good question has the same effect and you can change your focus to something positive enpowering instead of the feeling of pain.
    Works for me ^^
    What are good questions? "what can I do next and have fun doing it?" but you have to ask yourself seriously, otherwhise you brain won´t come up with a good answer ^^
