    It's a late lunch for me, and I'm sitting at home with no one here. That for me is a massive trigger. Normally I'd not think twice about browsing through shit loads of porn and rewarding myself. Now I sit here trying desperately hard to ignore the triggers. How did I do it you ask, by watching some clips of Britains got talent on youtube whilst doing some actual work. I wasn't as productive work wise as I'd hoped, youtube got in the way a bit, but I was infinitely more productive that if I'd just watched porn!

    What do you guys do when triggers strike? Any BGT? or are you more into X-factor?

    FYI I want the record to show that I don't normally watch BGT, it was just the first thing I could see on YouTube!

    I know, i know, but even though it's been a short time, I can now see hot chics for who they are and not as something to get off to.

    I'd always recommend a physical distraction to a trigger such as a cold shower, exercise or a walk.
    In my experience to try to distract using YouTube can be risky...?

    I just stay the fuck outta the house all day. I live alone and if I feel if I'm gonna lose it, I'll stay out 7am - 10pm. 7 8 hours at work, rest of the time chilling outside, and if I have absolutely nothing to do, I'll sit in a coffee shop for couple hours. Basically, put myself in an environment where I can't jack off or watch porn. Come home only to eat and sleep and some chores.

    I had 2 weeks off from work for xmas, not much plan, cold shit weather outside, and worst of all, I didnt have my car for 10 days. Was stuck at home most of the day.. ended up relapsing so hard, I cant seem to get back on nofap again.

    Take my advice.. gtfo of the house.

    I totally agree with getting out of the house, if you are in a place where you can’t PM then you won’t, it’s as simple as that. However, there will be times in your life when you’ll be in the house alone and you need to be able to resist in those times. Maybe you’ll be waiting for someone to come and fix the boiler, maybe the wife will be away on a business trip, it’ll happen. Being prepared for these situations is paramount to your success.

    I recommend trying to resist the urge in the house with a distraction or something, and if this doesn’t work then go outside. You can do this to build up your resilience in the house to the point where you have it under control. Baby steps my friend, it’s a marathon after all :)

    A lot pf people seem to rely on cold showers, maybe it works for them, maybe it will work for me, maybe it will work for you mate.
