    Two -year streak. Man, that is amazing. I know the feeling of relapsing after a long streak. I was on a 90+ streak, then relapsed. I hurts inside. Same as for you probably. Only thing we can do is not be to hard on ourselves. Yes, the side-effect is horrible, but i will be better shortly. Hopefully it doesn’t take so much time to be back on track. Anything is better than when we watched porn every day and thought that was normal. Yeah, because be were told it was normal.

    Hi Alex, my longest streak is 8 months - relapsed, immediately felt like shit and tried again. Managed to stay away from P for 5 months, then relapsed again regretting it. But here's the thing that I've noticed, that's been helping me a lot - (and I hope you can relate to this too), not all the progress I've made was lost with those relapses. Relapse episodes are shorter (few days or a week) and no binging or edging.
    You asked for encouragement. A two-year streak is awesome, there must have been some major neural rewiring in your brain during that time and surely you can feel and sense that you have moved further away from this addiction, even if you fall sometimes? Just keep on trying - that's what I do. I visit NoFap and educate myself every day (sometimes post) - helps me a lot to stay clean. You will beat this thing man, you've been able to do it for two years in the past - you can do it again!
    Take care.

    It 's true, you feel bad inside, you suffer, then you feel good little by little, unfortunately we live in a fallen world where we suffer because of the wrong things that are said, let's take courage friends
    thank you for your response and encouragement

  6. I just relapsed.. 150 days before today, I was PMO free all of 2020 and it was the longest I’ve ever gone in years. It’s good for us to be honest with ourselves and at least have accountability from other members on here. I take comfort in the fact that the times I use porn a year can be counted on one hand now, where as that was being done in a week easy before.. anyway, up and at em, we just have to learn from our mistakes and grow.
