    I've posted this in another forum but got 0 replies so i hope somebody will help me here.

    hi everyone,
    I've been visiting the website on and off to look for ways to stop my addiction (porn+fapping) and I've like the fact that its active .. so Im here !
    here is a little background of me :
    Im a college student , Im a muslim and thats mainly why Im here ,I want to stop forever and free myself of the shame and guilt I carry , Im tired of being tired all the time and living like a zombie and sleeping all day.(I have put almost 10 kg ever since)
    so my problem started 2 years ago at the start of my second semester in college .I was googling something ...well it was out of curiosity but I regret it now.

    ever since ,it became a part of my life .. Im a person who thinks a lot anyway and that only made things worst ..I used to do it daily but i managed to do it every other day .. ive had some successful trials (went 16 days without it and relapsed and recently after a family member getting psychosis i stopped again for 10 days, and then some other 6 or 5 days here and there) but i still cant stop for good.

    Ill appreciate it if you guys can give me your best tips .
    I WANNA LIVE AGAIN NORMALLY :(

    Well, first of all, let me tell you that the goal of NoFap is to kill off the urges to any kind of porn BUT, beware, these urges can come back after even 8 months, It happened to me, because the sexual energy was so damn big that I needed to see some porn, yeah unfortunatly but I noticed that it did not change me at all lol. I just busted some nuts and I'm the same as before with no urges to watch porn again. I think that's the win of NoFap. Not being dependent from porn.

    My 260 days streak got broken today but I don't feel like I lost, I just freed myself of the sexual energy I had while still being me. Call it relapse but I see myself as succesfully rebooted :)

    Welcome.

    There is a muslim group if you’d like to join it. Click the groups menu above and then search for “Muslim Fapstronauts”

    You are always welcome to post anywhere on the site that matches the topic. Note there is also a “Women in Reboot” area where you can find more posts that will discuss your unique problems.

    I also wrote a thread a while back that may give you a start. https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/sparkys-synopsis-for-combating-pmo.105429/

    I saw you have a thread up for an accountability partner. Hopefully you will get a message shortly from someone who meets your criteria. APs are key resources.

    Other than that, when you are ready, start asking questions that are addressing the problems you are dealing with right now interfering with your reboot. We’re here to support each other.

    Please note that at times, it can take a few hours for someone to reply to a thread.

    Hi! Last year, for many month I stoped watching porn . In that time I was talking to a women , everyday, became a relationship and not only that it felt wrong to watch but i didn't felt a need for it.
     
  13. that is from to much masturbation and porn. you will feel better if you can go several months with out an o. I did it once. felt normal, then got back in a bad streak. forget vitaims, herbs ect. stop O, that is the medicine.

    I guess everybody here will tell you from our own experience that relapse is mostly coming from boredom. My the best tip - avoid it. I mean do some sport! You can start with fitness 4x a week, whatever. You will be tired enough to think of PMO and you will direct your energy into something reasonable than PMO.
