    I just had the worst urge of my nofap journey, a minute ago today at day 15. I have done one 41 day streak in the past but nothing came close to the intensity of this urge. I don't know how I got myself talked out of it, but it was very very very damn close for five minutes or so. I have been considering trying "aroma therapy" by sniffing a disgusting cologne that I really hate in the event of an urge, but am curious what you all think. The chaser effect is typically sooner than 15 days correct? I thought that was something more akin to the first five days or so.

    Also- I have no porn in my home, I don't use instagram or see any suggestive images on facebook. At the time of urge I was just sitting here on the forums typing a reply in another thread. It just broadsided me. I haven't done ANY peeking or had any near-slip ups since beginning this streak. I haven't felt chaser in a week and a half at least.

    It was insane. It was so bad I could scream, and probably would if the whole house wasn't asleep. I am still fighting whats left of it. I should probably go for a drive.

    Anything to take a break! Also do you workout? Like lift weights, or cardio or something? It's only temporary. but one of the best ways to fight urges is with a good workout!

    The urge came back this morning and it's been prodding me all day. I haven't ever experienced anything like this. Hopefully tomorrow it leaves me the hell alone otherwise I might as well just go in to work.

    Somehow made it through to day sixteen. What a nightmare. That urge came and went damn near 24 hours and I half expect it to be back any minute. It's like picking a scab, I just need to leave it alone. I need to not think about it. I accepted defeat several times but then grabbed control back at the last second, I don't know how. I have never employed this much will power in my life, I don't think.
