    Hello Fellow Fapstronauts
    I am not able to hold after 5 days. Which is achieved in a struggle itself. When I do achieve the 5 days mark, I relapse so hard that forget loosing I go negative the progress I made. I am student, and we all are stuck in self-quarantine which invites indulging in the digital world and eventually falling hard due to relapsing.

    I did hear about the Dopamine Detox but I believe I can't go all out hardcore. Anybody who is following the detox and gradually increasing their difficulty, I can easily go through the detox of staying away from digital means for a day though.

    Also, the most important part is how do I cross this 5 day mark and extend it to 10 days? Shall I increase exercising to two times a day that did make me feel good.

    Just play pubg man all the time man. I know it'll be like replacing one addiction with another but i think pubg or any other games which can take our mind off it is better than fucking porn man really.
    And meditate with exercise it will really help trust me.

    Might be a later reply but anyway...

    I am on a similar experience, day 3-7 I had extreme urges and blue balls. Observing it has decreased on day 7 and onward. Personally engaging into another addictive activity is not a good idea. Try to engage in some physical activity/exercise, that will keep your mind to a more constructive path. Believe me as you resist more, it also help push self discipline in lot other aspects of your life.

    I suggest try an incremental, When on day 5 just try hard to extend 1-2 more days, even if you relapse your personal resistance has increased and will boost in your next reset cycle. don't think it like a negative progress.

    Hope this helps!
