    Instead of focus on this one habit focus on your good talents and heavily meditate and I've been doing the same so I'm talking about what I'm doing

    I think what you doing is rebooting as an ordinary person. This is very dangerous and is what I innocently kept doing over and over with my addiction.

    When you want to overcome porn addiction, you have to admit you are an addict, and act like a recovering addict every single day until it feels as though you're not working to achieve this (and even so you should still be working, doing routines etc.) YOU SHOULDN'T GO ABOUT YOUR DAY THE SAME WAY THAT YOU DID BEFORE YOU LAST RELAPSED. You should however notice what made you slip, make record of that, and change your life making sure that you improve what you already established when going into NoFap.

    If your treat NoFap as this fun game where you have to 'stay away' from porn and 'find better things to do' YOU ARE GOING TO FAIL.

    TAKE REBOOTING SERIOUSLY. Block porn on your internet browser. Delete all social media (high risk potential for Psubs). Read about the negative effects of porn. You are wasting your time on NoFap if you know you are addicted but go through life as an ordinary person.

    YOU ARE NOT AN ORDINARY PERSON. YOU ARE AN ADDICT LIKE ALL OF US HERE ON NOFAP. INSTILL THIS INTO YOUR BRAIN AND GET A NEW GRIP ON LIFE.

    Sorry if you felt that I was being too harsh. My message was meant to be in reply to @cjharris15's message.

    I was just trying to emphasize the importance of taking this thing very seriously. i, among with many others, have just seen lots of people on the internet (youtube) say "hey, i've gone x hundred days without fapping to porn by doing x and its improved my life, you can too" They try to make it look as though its a walk in the park and all. So people go on and say 'if it looks so easy why don't I do it'. And then end up relapsing and giving in to porn, through no fault of their own, but to the fault of how society has glorified sexual intercourse into every single aspect of life imaginable, so as to make it impossible to break free of porn addiction.

    This is why I am so strong on this issue. If you really want to be 100% porn free, you have to stop giving in to societal norms. This may mean ending a few relationships with people that may pose a potential trigger. You have to stop living like an ordinary person, and start living like an addict. That means being independent with your opinions and views of life in general.

    Overcoming porn is not easy in this world.

    Yes I get the overcoming part greatly. I just got my thirty days going and am proud. I didn’t cave in but still did the M but to unfortunately a video of the top ten hottest female DC Villains. I don’t feel guilty for watching it for there was nude but believe I can do better so since I tripped up a little I decided not to sweat it but I decide to try Hard Mode to step my game up and believe I can do this
