    I can't keep up. My last streak was 75 days and that was in febuary. I fell back hard, really hard. At this point i dont know how to fight anymore, i cant keep up even a week. Stress is going on too with family issues and i dont know how to process everything else here. Any kind of advice is appreciated.

    Hey man,

    I just had a streak of 39 days, and two weeks ago I relapsed. After that, I have relapsed multiple times. I felt powerless and really wanted to give up. However, the last couple of days I decided to pick myself up again, and go again for a reset of 90 days. What helps for me is to visit this page, and write in my journal here. Keep reading about why you should stop porn. Keep writing about why you want to stop. What are the negative effects that porn has had on your life, what will happen to your life if you don't stop? And also, what kind of life do you want to have? Are you working towards it? Reminding yourself every day of this helps.

    Good luck brother!

    Hi there

    As you can't keep a streak I suggest using a porn blocker. I use block site and it works well for me. Its a firefox extention. I dont use chrome because in incognito blockers dont work.
    This way you'll give your willpower an aid untill a streak is established.
    Good luck

    Same happened with me but my determination is stronger than my urges.
    Everytime urges strikes me ,I think of things which i have received and will get if i continue my journey.
    Same is with you ..you have that will .
    Start with 3 day challenge and progress step by step.

    My friend, you must find that one part of your life that is lacking. You indulge in this behavior because you are either sexually compulsive (may need treatment), but I am willing to be you have something else. Confidence? Restlessness? Stress? Emotions? That is for you to find out.

    Putting that aside, I also lost my streak a few days ago, but I found out EXACTLY what has stopped me for months, and now it is almost too easy to stop at times. If you relapse, do it only once. That way the timer isn't back to zero.

    I am obviously not Christian, but this line from a satanic/catholic metal band resonates in terms of nofap when translated into English

    Coleus dominus sanctus animus: "I pray to the Lord. . . Holy Mind!"

    Coleus sanctus: "Holy scrotum"

    You must diferentiate the porn addiction and your family issue its diferent kind of problem and also different kind of solving

    So there is no need to escape to porn to fix ur family issue, its not relatable on the contrary its just making it worse

    With that kind of mindset rn i trying to fix my life issue while maintaining to do no porn

    My last streak was 5 month and its last year, after that i hardly have 1 week streak its just another 3 days fap, week end fap, another 3 days fap and so on

    Now its day 9 , also as a fellow sparta we always waiting for u

    Thats why I use it both on laptop and phone. I act more compulsive on phone because its got more privacy in usage so I included higher restrictions on my phone.
    Yet its doing great job for me.

    Maybe don't focus on numbers. You know now that you can go a long time without porn and masturbation. So there isn't any reason you can't do it again. Rather than saying I have to get to x number of days say "I don't watch porn". I think that mindset is useful and is recommended to people with all sorts of addictions.

    I think most important is not to let go youself completely with a relapse. If you can't stay away of porn do at least regular sports oder meditation. After some days or weeks you will have the power to go on a long streak again.
    I just described my way to currently 129 days noPM, first 98 days noPMO. Maybe there are some strategies that can help you: (click for link)
    Heacy and regular sport was key for me. But you should only go as hard as you can train at least every second day. I alternate running with three split in the gym. After training I always do 20 minutes of stretching with yoga exercieses. That gave me the power to start my curretn streak.
    The last week I reintroduced meditation combined with clasic yoga breathing (A kind of deep and slow breathing), that also helped a lot.

  12. This will help you definitely. If you can make a change then the size doesn't matter as long as you do it.
    Like Yoda told Luke: Making some rocks levitate or a spaceship is the same.
    Do or do not. There is no try.
    Get up. I EXPECT MORE FROM YOU! GET UP! GOD OF WAR!!!!
