    I know a lot of people have to stay at home which doesn't quite help the urges. How have you been dealing with them? I've been watching a lot of Netflix to bypass the urges, but sometimes they can be overwhelming. This virus is some bullsh*t but I hope you all are staying safe and pmo free in this crisis.
  2. You have to maintain yourself always busy... I know that it’s difficult, especially in this period... You can try to do some physical exercises (a lot of fitness YouTubers uploaded videos about exercising at home), search for a new hobby, read something that you consider interesting... A lot of people just stay at home doing nothing all day eating junk food and this is wrong... try to increase the quality of some part of your life. For example I’m trying to reduce the time that I spent on social media and also trying to sleep the right amount of time... we have the opportunity to fully focus on ourselves without too many distractions. Think about the better person you will be when this period will end...

    I think it’s actually helping to reduce urges for me. Staying at home drastically limits the possibility of seeing females out and about. Places like the gym and stores were always the biggest triggers for me since I’m not much of a social media guy.

    Just because you have to remain at home doesn’t mean you have to resort to masturbating. There are a million things that you can do to keep yourself occupied that do not involve PMO. Focus on constructive activities and stop choking the snake.

    In my country of Sweden we don't have a quarantine in place and most things are still open so I still go to the gym and library a few times a week, but other than that I've been trying to stay inside, and I'm not sure why, but I'm currently on my highest streak ever. Except for the gym, I've been focusing all of my energy (6-8hours per day outside of classes) on studying.

    My recommendation for anyone struggling in quarantine would be to study something and focus all of your energy on it. If you don't know what to study, I'd suggest studying a new language, I myself am currently studying Japanese and Chinese. Right now, due to the mass-quarantine, languagepod101 have put their absolute beginner courses for free for three months, this is several hours of audio lessons and I can vouch for their Japanese and Chinese lessons and I can only assume their other languages (40-somthing) are good as well. Just google whatever language you want to learn and add pod101 and you'll find it (if it exists), EX: Japanesepod101, Spanishpod101, persianpod101, etc.

    The quarantine is benefiting for people, who are convinced to get rid off porn. I find it much easier without being surrounded by many people currently and am therefore forced to spent my time genuine.
