    First: think back to when you started NoFap. Think about how you wished to reach what you have reached until now.
    Second: When you're going through hell, keep going!
    Third: use the panic button if there is the urge to pmo.
    Fourth: If urge get's nasty, take a cold shower (this is hardcore, and should solve the issue properly)
    Fifth: Watch this video (if you have already watched it, watch it again)



    All the best for you my friend, we're together on the path, together we're strong :)

  6. Keep going brothers, we can get through this together! once you are able to control your inner desires and you're not a slave of them, instead you're the master there is nothing you cannot do. Fighting your inner self is one of the biggest achievements you can achieve!

    Over that 10 day hump! You guys can do it, I believe in all of you. I went through dozens of relapses to get this far, and I promise after about day 7-8 it does get easier. Just stay focused and if you relapse don't give up! Willpower is a muscle and takes awhile to build up.

    Of course you can have sex, unless you're doing what is called "hard mode". For many hard mode seems to be the best way to "reboot" their brain. The idea is basically that you stop with porn / masturbating / fantasizing / having sex all together and do other things instead, to renew the neurological pathways. The advantage of this method, I would say, is that you can really make a great change, if you can keep it up you'll definitely change a lot. But it IS HARD so some people might be better off with a "softer" approach.
    However allowing sex can even make NoFap more difficult: it's called the Chaser-effect.

    But it also depends on what role sex plays in your life /addiction. Are you in a relationship or are you single? Are you cheating? Do you use sex like porn (to compensate negative emotions for example)? Do you have erectile dysfunction? Do you objectify your partner?
    These are questions that are of great importance. Don't just follow any nofap-fad!

    But you didn't relapse :)
    didn't you?

    @Mike25 great advices and thank you for sharing that video! He's so cool :cool: It's my favorite nofap-talk on YT now

    If a girl gives you and handjob counts as masturbation? I think it's ok if you are not thinking about porn, what do you think?

    Day 7.
    Well, guys. This is my actual record. I was able to manage a week before knowing about NoFap, but ultimately I relapse in those times. However, I think that this time will be different. The urges arises sometimes, and my mind get rid about sexual thoughts and make it difficult, but not so much as I thought. 3 days left, so let's handle them and see what's coming!

    Will be 3 days in the morning. Tomorrow I'll be at school all day so will be fine. Temptation time will come Tuesday when I'm at home. Gotta stay focused on that. 1 day at a time, friends.

    Thanks man. Glad my story served as encouragement. Since two weeks ago i woke up one day with the intent of taking control of this addiction as I'm tired of self loathing and manipulating my body. This addiction has wreaked havoc on my scalp and have lost an inch of coverage on my hair line(v shape male pattern baldness). Even if my hair doesn't grow back i want to stay committed to no pmo. I can freely orgasm without guilt when i meet the right woman and enjoy sex in a healthy marriage, but until then no pmo. I made several changes simultaneously along the way that include abstaining from meat(working towards full time veganism), working out every other day, walking my dogs, staying sober(from alcohol and weed), and intermediate fasting. This has helped tremendously because i tried quitting pmo several times in the past but this time around the urges aren't as strong. That's not to say i don't have urges but they are not as intense as in the past. I really credit the intermediate fasting couple with the diet change for this. you basically eat two meals a day during an 8 hour period (preferably last meal 3 hours before falling asleep). Sorry for the long paragraph but i thought it important to mention and hope it helps. I hope to be a source of inspiration and motivation as we are all in this together. This dependency can be beat. It's a 24 hour deal, one day at a time. Day 9 and counting.

    Oh man, that was risky. Good thing you stopped before it was too late. Remember that the battle starts in your mind. You've got to tell yourself no and stick with it. If you give this addiction any wiggle room or if you try to negotiate with it it'll get ya. I know i can't allow myself to even type phub on the url cause if i do it's game over. there's no "i'll just watch a little bit" for me cause i know i'll give in. Keep at it man.
