How to Control Edging

    Yesterday I had some serious urges and would've PMO'd if I hadn't put up several porn blockers. Nevertheless, I still edged for around half an hour looking at images of women. This is usually the first step to my eventual relapse.
    I was wondering if you guys had any tips to overcome or to even reduce the urges that are inevitable on this journey.

    Much appreciated,

    I used to be the same. Everyone has their own definition of relapse, but I had my breakthrough when I changed my definition of relapse. I said:

    Edging/touching or peeking at even non-nude photos IS relapse.

    I promised myself not to do those. I recommend you to do the same.

  3. Technically edging is relapsing but to each their own.

    The way I’ve dealt with urges like this is to just get up and take a walk. Even when I get a slight erection, just have to walk it away. Or if I’m at home, I’ll drop and do crunches, sit-ups, hip ups or push ups. Some sort of activity.

    Hello guys,
    So I've gone 9 days with no PMO but me and my partner did do some penetrating but did not climax. Does this count as relapsing?

    Thanks guys

    One thing I do, it sounds kind of strange, but it works usually for me. First, take your hands, and gently place them on your temples. Then, rock your head side to side five or more times, and then it will go away after a few minuets. I don’t know if this will work for you, but it works for me, because when your brain feels like it’s doing something to prevent a relapse, it is inclined to do so.

  6. I would not say it is a relapse, at least to me. Because my goal is abstain from P and M, and only O during sex with my wife.

    P and M was my struggle and the way I see nofap it’s to have a stronger sex life and eliminate P and M.

    Luckily I haven't had any urges the past few days, but whenever it happens, I'll see if that helps. Honestly, just going on NoFap throughout the day helps a ton.
    Thanks for the advice!
