    Does anyone have any tips on urges? (Avoiding them, dealing with them, etc.) It would help me out alot. Any advice is accepted. If it helps at all, I'm going through puberty.

    Try crushing the thoughts about porn. My streak right now is only because I used this method. Find the thoughts in your brain that are creating the urge, then imagine physically crushing the thoughts down until they're just a tiny spot in your brain, then imagine that tiny spot fading away until there's nothing. Once you've done that, find something else to do.
    Also, pee when you get an urge. Seriously. I have often had what I thought was an "unbeatable urge" only to realize that I actually just had to pee.

    I'm right there with you as far as not being able to control urges, but what has worked for me in the past is acknowledging the urge and just waiting through it, being mindful the entire time. Sometimes before or even after I open that incognito tab, I stop and shut it down as fast as I can. That usually buys me time to think and get myself out because of the barrier I put between myself and whatever I was trying to watch.

  6. The thing is, it could be we want to do it. You can't have such a conflict of interest. My efforts are avoiding encounters and improving my life so that I don't have to come to it.
