    Today I'm struggle with that sick addiction. I'm sitting alone at home. My girlfriend is going to her parents for 3 days.

    My thoughts about porn and masturbation are very strong. I don't want to masturbate.. But the old bad habits are very present...

    The condition to be alone allow me to do anything... In the past I choice porn and masturbation to relax... 3-4 times per day...

    I want to say Thanks for this great community. It is helping me to write in this great forum.

    I want to handle this shit!

    Try to plan some activities so you won't be home alone for the next 3 days?

    When I was about to relapse, I would think about feeling guilty after masturbation, Plus always remember why you started NoFap. You brain may try to convince you, instead fighting try and explain it to your brain that why Nofap is important

    Everyone else's suggestions are great but I would also add exercise. It doesnt really matter what the exercise is, as long as it tires you out, it will redirect the sexual energy into the exercise and then out of your body.

    I think your idea about the energy is true. At the evening I went to the gym and exhausted myself. Now I'm really relaxed and I haven't urges!

    This happens because a lot of the time urges to PMO arent actually urges to PMO, its just your body craving dopamine. If you do something that creates dopamine in the body, like exercise, you will no longer want to PMO.

    What I do is have a coffee and use a language app called Tandem.

    You get to chat to people all over the world whilst learning languages - meaning you won’t be lonely and you’ll be productive. That and an episode of Rhonda Patrick on Joe Rogan.

    Worst thing you can do is just sit there. Sitting there is waiting for it to happen.

    Hey,
    Did you talk to your girlfriend about PMO and trying to stop? I totally get it if not but use her coming back as a goal. I found the best way for me to focus is to think about how it will affect my girlfriend...

    My girlfriend knows nothing about my noPMO-journey, because I don't want to encumber my relationship or sexual activity with her. I think it would be influence our relationship negative, if we talk about my porn addiction, isn't it?
