    Uh..Why are you giving him advice? And how can you say that when you're in 272 days?

    Why not masturbate without porn though?! Imagination is a wonderful thing.

  3. Masturbating to your imagination is replacing porn with your own fantasy which is not healthy and will keep you stuck in the addiction cycle.

  6. Okay so if I can't use imagination and I can't use porn.

    This makes sex the only outlet for sexual energy.
    So you expect someone who doesn't get laid to just remain this way for 300 days?
     
  7. Hey man you can stay clean. Even if you failed remember why you quit remember the pain it made you feel that's why each and every one of us are here. It's a vicious cycle that promises glory but spits us out feeling broken and used.
    I can understand you feel frustrated with not finding a girl but it sounds to me there is some other stuff going on in your life other than PMO that needs to be dealt with.
    Perhaps speaking with someone could help. And you gotta stay clean from the mo as well my counter is reset when I MO but its been a bit longer without porn honestly I felt as terrible by somewhat accidentally doing it. None the less I learnt from it and am determined this is simply one thing we need to grow up and deal with. One thing I have learnt in life even when it feels like we have sorted out something that was crushing us, some other giant will rear its ugly head something that has always been there we just havn't been able to see it. Always going to be a fight.
    I feel for you mate I really do but you have to evaluate what you want in life and perhaps look at what else you need to work on to improve.
    I believe in you look how far you have already come. You CAN do this. As long as you still have breathe in your lungs you CAN choose to fight. You CAN.
     
  8. You should transmute that energy into working out and being productive in other ways, but yes masturbation is fruitless and wastes your energy and time

    Images, Imagination, videos, sound, quick and meaningless sex. They are all the same, you have to ask yourself why did you decide to stop fapping, I assume its not because you were tired of the medium but the methodology. Whenever you think you've found a way to jack off and still abstain, that's not your head talking that's your libido.

    Saying im going back to porn is like an ex heroin addict saying "oh yeah im going back to heroin, just the less pure stuff" .
     
  11. Whatever you do, I hope you are honest with yourself and find peace with your decision. The best of luck to you!

    when i saw a hot picture today it gave me urges to PMO, but i controlled myself, on the past days i had zero or almost no urges because i did not see anything sexual, the pictures increase the urges and soon pictures wont be enough anymore and you go back to videos

    and it doesnt matter if its videos or pictures, it still does the same dopamine rush

    Everytime you look at pictures, you're using up all the energy especially with masturbation, you're hurting yourself bud. If you choose to relapse, that's your fault because you intentionally did that for no reason. Think about that for a minute.

    Hey bro, if that's what you choose, fair play.
    My only suggestion would be - don't watch images on electronic devices - as the supply of images there is basically endless.
    Buy a playboy or something, make sure to limit yourself. Don't overdo it. I guess in small amount it can't be all bad. But do limit yourself. I strongly suggest paper over screen.
    Good luck!

    Depressed&out - I'm actually really curious to hear of your experience of 'returning to pmo' after several years. If you choose to do it! I can't offer any advice from experience, as I have never been 3 years clean - I'd be absolutely chuffed with 3 months, quite frankly.

    our ancestors probably had a lot more sex than us, since they lived more sociable and connected lives - although there are many figures in history who do appear to have remained celibate for long periods, most people married and/or had lots of sex. So, there is always to option to work super hard on your dating game, and give some lucky lady 3 years of pent up sexual energy :p

    I have never heard of testosterone converting to estrogen. Is this for real??

  17. I remained that way for over 400+ days, people think if you don't fap or have sex for larger period that you'll go insane. That's wrong, you do have sexual tension, but its not as big as it is before, simply because you know how to manage it and direct it at other things.

    Pls people, don't think that you'll go insane if you don't have sex or fap, you'll be fine you won't be super horny to the point your tray starts looking thicc. You will get horny, but not hardcore horny in fact its going to be easier to deal with it on day 300 than it would be on day 30

    See, we must enjoy being horny because it makes our body stronger. We all will be experiencing blue balls, and random erections are sometimes painful, so ain't no comfortable about this journey. NO PAIN=NO GAIN. We have to get used to be uncomfortable if we want to succeed. Most people don't fully comprehend about the journey.

    FOR FUCKS SAKE!!! I RELAPSED LAST NIGHT!! FUCKING DEVASTATED NOW!!

    I actually had second thoughts about going back to pictures, but last night when I wasn't getting any sleep.... I simply lost my mind and accessed few pornographic pictures (around 4-5 pics). The PMO session was 2-3 minutes long and so the when I finished, it wasn't that strong.

    As to the effects of the relapse, I have a few but I don' think as bad. I will write about it later as now I have to do a bit of work.

    I feel sick and devastated that this has happened, but thinking about it logically, I don't think that relatively minor relapse has undone my 3 years PMO free works. The shot of 'drug' wasn't that strong or for too long, it can't have damaged the 3 years worth of recovery. I hope I'm not being delusional.

    But as I said, I'll post about the effects of PMO relapse later.

    I feel so angry with myself, but I'm remaining calm.

    Every animal(humans inclusive) have Testosterone and Estrogen in the body. It’s the ratio of the two that decides the sexuality. Males tend to have a very high T:E ratio.

    An popular experiment among Biologists:
    They took a cock(I mean a rooster) and injected estrogen into him periodically and soon ‘he’ started developing female reproductive parts, body features started to change. Yes! I’m not joking, go check it out on the web!
