    Hello.

    I've been away from here for a long time and I don't know if that spammer is still spreading havoc around here, but I have an idea.

    In an e-cigarette forum I just registered they have this rule:
    This could be applied to this forum too.

    Hi NotAfraid - welcome back! :) No the spammer(s) have been gone for several weeks. The mods seem to have defeated them. How have you been getting on? The numbers don't always tell the story.

    Thanks, man! What a warm welcome. :)

    I've been struggling. I can go a week without even wanting to fap, but then I see something triggering and I fight the urge for a couple of days, then eventually cave in.

    I seem to be stuck in a vicious cycle. My motivation is low for everything. It's hard for me to find the motivation to exercise. I've stopped taking cold showers and meditation. I was sick for a week and during that time I couldn't do any of these activities, so it could be the reason. I feel a surge of motivation always after relapsing, but after a day it's gone.

    I have to get back on that wagon, but I'm still searching for that eye of the tiger I used to have. Trying to examine myself to find the problem.

    Sometimes I feel like this addiction has it's roots too deep inside me, since I've watched porn since I was 6 years old. Like some kind of "irreducible rascality".

    Other days I feel hopeless, other days I feel the king of my world.

    Maybe I should go all in with this and start writing a journal, taking cold showers, exercising 3 times a week and meditating.

    Sorry for the incorence, my mind is racing.

    No problem mate. Perhaps a journal will help marshal your thoughts. Even just writing down your reasons for needing to end this addiction can be cathartic. I have never done cold showers - too much of a wuss, lol. But if you are back here, go for it - throw everything you got against it! Don't underestimate the experienced you have garnered so far, so be sure to help others along the way. There is nothing else so empowering and therapeutic.

    I think the forum, that I got this idea from, runs the same forum software. At least the posting interface is identical.

    @IGY Thanks, man! You're a great help. I'm going for it.

    What a coincidence. The e-cig forum is now being attacked by the spammer. Just minutes before I made this topic. It's the exact same spammer with nonsense topic names with randoms words like "love problems kala jadu solve" and a bunch of numbers.

    Are the vBulletin-forums more prone to this kind of spam or something, because now it's starting to seem more like a virus or a bot, than one spammer.
