    I'm also a latecomer (no pun intended!) having just signed up for this site.

    However, I started on May 6, so I am up for extending it as much as possible - 10 day challenge it is.

    Thus far, by day 6, I'm getting horny a lot and my libido is high. I think about sex a lot. I'm not acting on this of course and to be honest it feels quite nice to be getting slightly aroused in a normal way.

    Day 4.
    Things started to go odd. Last night feel a very strong urge. Tried to solve it by positive thinking and rationally, however didn't diminish. Today woke up kind anger, frustrated and ansious. I will to the gym to release the rage and try to calm down. Don't want to see my GF to not relapse neither to have more depressive or ansious thoughts.

    Keep moving. Tomorrow will be at the half, so it's just motivating.

    I feel the same bro. So don't let the sexual though govern your mood. I'm starting to feel horn too, but instead of leading me those feelings, I just remember how many guys here feel the sAmerican and they really need other guys to stay motivated.

    I'm started to feeling a kind of abstinence syndrome.

    Hey man, it's great you're trying to reduce it but if you hit those 5 days without an O don't adopt the mindset whereby you think 'hey, I reached my goal now I can O!'. Instead, extend your goal to 10 days. Then 15, 20, 25...

    In other news today has been a NoFap dream, no messing around at all down there! I suppose it helps being away from 7 till 5:30 then some exhausting exercise!

    I'm in the same ship, bro! Just think that you bear a big responsability to yourself. When thoughts or urges about sex pops up, think in other thinks. Start to focus in other things. If you feel it in night, this can be really uncomfortable, but it's better to being awake rather than being rolling in the bed, and thus, having more urge.

    Get out, try to make some exercise or take a cold shower. Refuse to fear and to give up!

    Welcome!

    When the pressure gets too high 2 things might happen:
    a) I can't handle stress and emotional challenges anymore
    b) I relapse with porn

    But I see no problem with jerking off from time to time. Sex would be better of course...
    The main thing is that I don't use porn or subs.

    Right. And when you talk/discuss with yourself you should be /go somewhere where you can't relapse, if that is possible. Cause changes are you loose that inner debate.
    We all know this weakness
    It's not because we have lost our reason, our dreams, goals, dignity and selfrespect. It's because at some point the addiction predominates our reason.

    It's just a bad habit! It's like a drug! You don't need it. It's bad for you! Keep strong by saying no and reap the rewards later! You will feel the advantages very soon! Deny yourself to have fun right now and you will be a successful man.

    This is the SPONGE for YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. Thoughts of relapsing for example. The sponge is big enough to absorb every thought you want it to. Give your negative thoughts (and emotions) to the sponge!

    The trick is to give those really toxic thoughts away immediately. DON'T THINK THEM! Give'em to the sponge.

    Actually you can give ANY thought to the sponge.
    When you've got rid of enough thoughts you finally can do something.

    On day 4, still with you guys. Todays been a bit of a challange. My brains tries to trick its self into justify porn use like "you're doing good so why not reward yourself with some porn" or thinking " maybe a little porn will take of the egde" but I know it always ends in a self loathing binge.

    Reading threw your post has helped, stay strong brothers.

    What wrong with having sex? You can't quite this challenge because you got laid.
