    I am so happy today because my 11th day is almost over. I know it's not much but it is a pretty big deal for me. Because the last time I hit 11 days was more than 1 year ago. Last time I hit 10 days was 11 months ago. Last time I hit 8 days was 9 months ago. Last time I hit 4 days was 4 months ago.
    What I am trying to say is nofap was pretty hard for me. I mean I couldn't even hit 3 days lately. I tried cold showers, meditation, exercise daily, etc. But nothing worked for me.
    But now I finished day 11 and this time it wasn't that hard for me.
    If you are wondering how I did it, it was Yoga. Yoga is so powerful and magical. I mean even if I see a photo of a semi nude model, I don't slip. But don't get me wrong.I get urges but I can manage it easily.
    My longest streak was 39 days. It was 2 years ago. I hope I can break it this time and post a thread in Success Stories Forum.

  2. That's awesome! Keep it up. I will say that you need to be prepared for strong urges past 45 days. I feel like they are lessening now, but last week and the week before were tough for me.

    What
    What do you do for that
     
    1. Meditation. I cannot stress how important the skills I have learned in meditation have been to avoid urges. So many times when I have an urge I can close my eyes and focus on my breath for less than 1 min and the urge goes away
    2. Make it hard to get to P.
      1. I have uninstalled ALL social media
      2. I put an app called incoquito on my phone that prevents me from using any browser but chrome and I cannot open incognito tabs. I gave my wife the PW.
      3. I put a parental monitor on my phone
    Now i know ways around each one of these, but it takes work. The brain is wired to conserve energy and so far has seen all of this as too much work and not worth the effort.
