    I have no idea how to fight the intense urges when they come. I get through a week and relapse. What tips do you guys have to avoid a relapse?

    Work on turning your attention from sex as lust to sex as making love.

    The reason this happens is because part of you still wants to do PMO. It’s something like a split personality syndrome. You need to correct your thoughts. Why do you not want PMO one day, then want it the next day?

    During times of intense temptation you've got to run away from the source. Get off the internet and do some push-ups, walk around your block, go to the gym. During other times when you're not feeling strong urges I'd recommend practicing self-denial, like a cold shower or eating healthy rather than indulging yourself.

    Exactly that. Start moving. When you’re idle around the house you start thinking differently. Your mind is focused on one thing and you have the time and excuse to give in. When you’re walking, running or cycling you are focused on that sole activity. I also strongly recommend cold showers. Slowly but surely if you keep doing these things your mindset changes. It’s a new way of life.

    Yeah don’t take the split personality comment literally. I just meant when urges come, another part of you takes over. Mental leak is good way to picture it

    The best thing you can do is mediation as it calms you and keeps you present when those urges arise, breathing excersizes are good aswell for transmuting and letting the the sexual energy flow within your body.

    PMO becomes all you can think about when you’re always edging and looking. I love it when I achieve a clear mind as possible. That’s how we should be.
