My biggest urge and how I DEFEATED it!

  1. Hello to all fapstronauts. I am a 22 y/o male and I am on my 125th day today. I've already got rid of all the stupid things that I used to think about while doing 'it'. Now when I think about it sometimes it's always with a girlfriend. Anyway, today I got an enormous urge in the afternoon. I was literally lying on my belly and waiting for a relapse. Like a freaking sheep waiting for its slaughter. But in the end, when I was about to relepse I thought about the most important things that I've learned during my nofap journey. They are:
    "The wolf you feed is the wolf that wins" (I don't want to feed the bad wolf; instead of that I went to the kitchen and made myself 0.5kg of vegetables!)
    "Lust is a poor, weak, whimpering, whispering thing compared with that richness and energy of desire which will arise when lust has been killed". But the most important one was: "My life is NOT a bunch of coincidences" ( If you don't feel like doing anything in your life because, in the end, you are going to relapse STOP ! You have 100% control over your life, you can tell this stupid brain of yours that you are not going to waste your life fapping and watching pixels. I took a cold shower immediately after getting up from the bed. It was raining the entire time when I was lying down and waiting for my lot but when I came back to my room I saw the sun shining from behind the cloud. It made me feel good. Stay strong and remember. You have control over your life!

    Congratulations my friend, 125 days is an achievement for sure. I get where you're coming from, I have been getting some ridiculous urges recently and it leads me to browse porn, one time with edging and then edging again while I lay in bed. In the end I said NO FUCKING WAY and just went to sleep.

    I've been mostly on hard mode throughout this journey but yes edging and porn do happen at times. There are just a lot of sexy things that build up our urges, but frankly once we move past them we are better off. I'm considering not even looking at pictures of models online anymore. That's mostly been my guilty pleasure, day after day. But now I'm thinking, why don't I redirect the urge to look at pictures of hot women towards something else? Like doing something creative.

    Hold on. Stay strong.

  3. Thanks for sharing. This is a good advice.

    When I have an enormous urge, I can escape those thoughts by doing something else (like: go out, take a cold shower, exercise, read, ...). But the problem is that it comes back and I tend to give in in a few days of combating those thoughts. I set myself in unfavourable position to stay away from MO. I'll apply your strategies the next time it happens.
