    I have actually tried nofap before, like 4 times and the most I ever lasted was 2weeks and 2-3 days and it sucks, everytime it's a just one more video and then I'll stop or just one week and then I'll stop, same thing same thing.



    It sucks because porn is just that, a fantasy on a video and it gives me nothing except a few minutes of pleasure and that's about it



    The girls aren't real



    The situations aren't real



    Most of it isn't real, usually (And I'm about to sound corny) there's no emotion, there's no passion, there's just hitting it and quiting it



    Well I may be a relapser but I plan to give it my best shot and it's starting today. I admit I'm a little scared and nervous but I plan to see this through to the end.



    That's about it

    Quitting porn, even knowing how disgusting it is, can be hard but if you're ready to do it permanently then you will do it eventually. Just don't give up if you fail.

    Good luck man!

    Well, what is real is your desire to stop @Lostbutfound . I've said it before to others on noFap. This is training for a marathon, not a sprint. Learning from relapses is part of how we manage our recovery. Of course you're right about the videos being not real. They're fictional entertainment designed to get men off, and it's extremely successful at it. The problem is our bodies start craving harder and harder hits of dopamine because the situations depicted are so intense. Eventually we're all messed up because we keep needing more and more, trying to outdo the last session. It's a horrible cycle.

    Ok, dust yourself off and get your mind in the right place. You're going to make this one count and we're all going to be right alongside you. Do we have a deal?

    Good luck! I like the metapher like its a training for a marathon not for a sprint. I do everytime my body want to force me to see porn, i just open Nofap and read here the stories. It helps alot for me!

  8. You're still here, you have fight in you.
    It sounds like you are getting to that time when your brain kicks into overdrive, trying to get what it wants. It's a rough time.
    Get started on an emergency plan for the next time that hits. If you need help with ideas, ask us and you will find something that works for you.
    Don't give up, you can do this. We're right by your side.

    Understood. Let's try and get back into rebooting, ok? You'll be able to dust yourself off. We learn from relapses, that's all.
