    Hello all I’m 22 years old and I’m trying to go a month without porn, masturbating and having an orgasm. I’m on day 8 and I’m finding nights and mornings the most difficult right now

    Mornings don’t bother me all that much. Nights are more of a challenge I think because I’m tired and maybe bored. I think just going to bed would help me a lot instead of staying up late. Boredom tends to get me into trouble.

    Same here I feel bad though I relapsed half an hour ago, I had a raging boner for an hour and just couldn’t get rid of it ;(
     
  4. Welcome John! Don't feel bad about the relapse, it happens and is part of the process. Use it as a learning experience. Have a plan in place for what you need to do when you find yourself in the same situation again. Mornings are the hardest times for me. After I wake up I like to just lay in bed for 10-15 minutes before actually getting up, which is a problem now that I'm trying to not PMO because I usually have morning wood and if I've had some kind of sexual dream I will be super horny when I wake up. When I find myself in that situation and want to act on my PMO urges, I will either: force myself to get up right away and get started with my morning routines so that I'm not just laying in bed thinking about my urges; or I will grab my phone, come to this site, and just keep reading through forum posts until the urge passes. A lot of good stuff to be found on these forums!

    Thanks I’ll try your method of reading posts. How long have you been off PMO for?
     
  6. Hey @John Silva ,

    Welcome to NoFap! You are in the right place.

    I'm just a regular member on here, so take what I say as my experience. I found that I needed to:

    1. Learn the NoFap program.

    2. Get involved with the community.

    The best resource I found was the “Getting Started with NoFap” guide. It is on the NoFap homepage and you can download it for free from this link https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/new-users-list-of-rebooting-resources.50878/

    Then, watch this video:



    It is really good and explains so much about how the blasting of porn images into the brain in high definition on high speed internet while slamming porn sounds into the ears with headphones can literally change the way your brain demands sexual stimulation.

    The video explains it better than I can.

    Also, a great page is https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/new-users-list-of-rebooting-resources.50878/ my experience is that by reading every link and watching every video, I learned so much.

    Then, I got involved with the community. I'm not anyone special on here, I don't have any magic powers. But, I can say hello to new members, post my journal entries, remember to “like” peoples posts, and offer my experience, strength and hope where appropriate.

    Looking forward to seeing you around on the forums,

    PS - Think of pmo like a wolf. Stay near the center of the group with the winners and the wolf has a more difficult time finding you. But, stray near the edges of the community and the wolf can pick you off.

    Also, here are a few journals to get started reading. See who they follow, see who is posting on their journals. You will find friends on here if you put yourself out there.

  7. Been trying to not PMO on my own for a while now, 2-3 days was the longest I ever went. 11:30 tonight will be the start of day 5 since I found this site and last PMO. Feeling so much more confident about being able to continue with no PMO since joining nofap. Learning about how my P addiction is actually effecting my brain and the huge negative impact it has had on my life has made me feel disgusted about PM which helps me fight off urges.

    I feel the same — the longer I go without porn the more I discover how it’s fucked me up, and the more that convinces me to stay off it!
