DAY 17 & 18 I was so bored last night that I kept thinking about MO but I didn’t do it. This goes back to me having too much time on my hands. Especially at night time. Erections are still about 60 - 65% hard whenever I do get them. I decided to throw ALL of my smoke away so I can truly begin healing. So this is Day 1 of no smoke. I’m ready to prove to myself that I’m mentally strong enough to put an end to smoking (Day 1) and PMO (Day 19) for good! I workout early in the morning before work. I rarely feel motivated to go after work and would rather “force” myself to go early before work. Besides working out, watching netflix, and playing video games, I honestly don’t do too much of anything. This is mostly because I’m in a new area where I really don’t know anybody. After work today, I plan to visit the outside mall around my area. Just so I can walk around, possibly meet new people, and actually DO SOMETHING (can’t even explain how bored I am here most of the time). In order to defeat my boredom, I’m going to respond to it differently. Instead of complaining or smoking when I’m bored, I’ll workout, do some reading/research, or something else productive. If, for whatever reason I can’t do these things, I’ll just start watching a new Netflix series or take a nap! Taking naps will help make time go by faster & takes away the “pressure” of finding something to do when bored. (By the way, The Office is HILARIOUS & contains 9 seasons so it will take a lot of your time just to watch the whole series. If you’re looking for something to watch, you’re welcome ) The only thing is, IM ACTUALLY GOING TO DO THESE THINGS instead of just talking about it. I’m a HUGE football fan so once the NFL season starts that will help with the boredom too. Make a conscious effort to keep yourself busy or go to sleep when bored. TRY IT FIRST BEFORE YOU ASSUME IT WONT WORK!! If this doesn’t work, anytime you feel the urges, you’ll have to remind yourself why you started nofap in the first place. Remember what your goal is and how important it is to you! My goal is to be able to have my rock hard erections back and not having any doubt in my mind that I can fully satisfy whatever girl I’m with. I want to be able to O with no issues and start a family one day. To me, this is 1000 times more important than me wanting to PMO or smoking. We all want to change something about ourselves. The people who do it successfully are the ones who believe they can! So believe! Constantly remind yourself that whatever you’re trying to gain out of nofap is way more important than that 10 minutes of satisfaction from PMO. Good luck to all of you!
