    Hey guys,
    I'm 23, gay, and stopped jerking off for almost a year until a few months ago. Have relapsed and jerked off almost everyday, sometimes many times a day. It has affected my mood, made me more weak, stopped exercising, affected my diet and especially my school work. I'm a uni student, and my marks have gone down because of this annoying addiction.

    When I went NoFap I was still watching porn and anally stimulating myself, so it wasn't really a complete stop, but at least I had it under control to just a few minutes a day, since I wasn't cumming. I thought I had it made; I felt really good and I was in control. But then one day I got a lot of stress and I started jerking again, it got out of control.

    This time I want to stop it for good, no jerking, no porn, no sexually stimulating myself in any way, no obsessive sexual thoughts, nothing. I felt like last time I was keeping a balloon under water, and it just popped back up. I want to end this for good. So here I go, trial #2, day 1...

    Welcome, Embark, I'm glad you're here.

    You can do this. It will be hard, but you will have help. Let me or anyone know if we can do anything.

    Welcome to NoFap where you are amongst friends who are here to encourage you and sometimes challenge you but not judge you.

    The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy. What are your current strategies for combating the enemy called PMO?

    Thanks D.J. I think talking about it here will help a lot, this seems like a really friendly place :)

    There's little routines I've done the first time I tried that I'm trying again, like no sleeping on my stomach, taking leaks sitting on the toilet in the stalls, things like that to try and not stimulate it.

    And porn, I think channeling my urge here instead of on porn sites will help. I've found listening to any type of music will put me off while I'm online.

    And just getting up and moving, I'll try biking to my work this summer. I'm an avid hiker so that would help me keep in shape too.

    Embark39, I hear you. The urge can be so strong and the penis points up and stares at you. Any sort of mindfulness that removes you from the internet will help. You can do this guy!
