nice, keep going!!!
I am back. I have failed a million times. I wanted to cry today. My life feels so cold without porn.. I dont know what to do.. I am basically a meth addict. I really am. I probably wouldnt stop until I die..
Hey, nuh uh. Your self-talk is very powerful, start talking to yourself with compassion and love.
c'mon man, it is possible, there are soooo many people here who have recovered and maybe started from a state worse than yours. IT. IS. POSSIBLE.
This might seem like a weird question, but what do you mean by cold? Like, what is the feeling/emotion that porn gives you/gets rid of? Asking because I've been thinking about this a lot myself.
ive tried many times to talk positive, but it just doesn't work for me. But again I will try.
Cold as in.. Porn makes me feel so good. I can not lie about that. And without it, it feels cold. It is true. Yet so sad.
I truly believe my addiction is worse than 99% of people on this website
Read some books about self-talk and positivity. Get educated. Your life is worth spending the time to do so.
It doesn't let me post the epubs on here, so pm me and I'll send em over. Martin Seligman's positivity book and Helmstetter's book on how to talk to yourself
ohh so sorry, didn't know it was that bad.
but whatever it is, you CAN get over it.
i actually have a weird thing ..
whenever i think about porn or even see a pic of a beautiful girl online,
i get the feeling that i'd usually get on seeing her in real life..
does this even make sense?
I think it makes sense because that's what porn does, it mimics what you see in real life, but it makes it even better in a way. Free sex and not having to go through all of the relationship struggles. Girls are just as hot on the screen, maybe hotter.
For me, it can feel good if it's been a while since I've fapped, but otherwise it's almost like a compulsion. Like I feel like I have to do it. And then I do it so much that it hurts and it's definitely bad for my sex life. I think I do it because it's distracting... somehow it's like part of me wants to undermine myself. And it let's me deal with stress, I guess, but then it causes more stress.
If it makes you feel good, are there also times that you feel bad? How did you get into NOFAP?
Hi cory me too. I feel bad. I've relapsed so many times. I saw many sites and posts about how people achieve their goals, but for me it is so dificult. But I am here trying to do it. You can do it. It's good to see you cory. It's my day 1.
so do you get such a feeling also?
or it it because i've abstained for a longer amount of time and my brain really is craving for all the stuff i used to watch. so, whenever anything even related to porn (like women in bikinis) pops up, i get this feeling.
I also feel like being stuck in a on and off cycle of pmo. Progress seems so slow....I give in then try again many times. Hoping to make a good stride before the year ends.
I guess I'm not sure exactly what the feeling you're describing is, but it sounds like whenever you see a girl in a bikini/lingerie, it reminds you of porn and makes you horny/want to fap. I definitely experience that sort of thing all the time. It could even be as innocent as a pop-up ad on a news website about hot pics of some celebrity or something.
its the feeling you get when your crush comes to talk to to you out of nowhere..
doesn't exactly make me want to fap, but yes it makes me horny
yep its that bad. I get a rush of euphoria just thinking about it.
Good to see you darth_vader. keep going. Ill keep going.
Keep going.. Ive been trying for 3 years now. If I never tried to stop i'd be dead from depression.
Honestly, I think it's normal to feel that way when you see a girl you're attracted to. The problem with porn, is that it's like you can constantly be with that crush. And it's all sex, all the time, whenever you want.
