    1. Social media
    2. Boredom
    3. Fantasizing
    4. Self pity
    5. Loneliness
    6. Sexual scenes in movies/shows

    Not necessarily in that particular order but its been 26 days and I'm realizing those were my triggers.

  4. Boredom and stress are probably my prime triggers. Seeing a hot girl doesn't do me any favors either, I have to force myself not to fantasize about her.

    I may have more, minor triggers but those are the main culprits.

    Thanks for listing your triggers. Yes, boredom and stress are tough to deal with. But being aware of your triggers is a good place to fight them. When I see an attractive girl and start fantasizing about her, I try to tell myself, "When I have a daughter, I would hate for guys to do what I am doing right now. She is someone's daughter. Stop what you are doing." This works almost always.

    Thank you for listing your triggers. Now that you mention it, I remember being triggered after I ate a big meal.

    Thank you for listing your triggers. I never thought of "bad diet" to be a possible trigger. Could you share a little more about this specific trigger?

    Thank you for listing your triggers. Insomnia is a big trigger for me too. What do you usually do to fight this trigger?

    1 . Loneliness
    2 . Fantasizing
    3 . Seeing real beautiful women walk by me in the streets or out in general

    These are the main 3 triggers that give me the urge to relapse but I don't give in ... I fight the good fight . Stay Productive & Stay Positive
