    A bit tempting now. I was ppaying a game on my phone for just 5 min and it came the M idea but luckly I can write on this forum about it and recover from the spell of dopamine crave.

    Now i reframed the period when the urge sets in and i use a different belief which gives me a different interpretwtion of the phenomema: I'm not happy; my dopamine level is dropping very close to the level where it triggers my dopamine need and in consequences my behaviour; but this dopamine level when the trigger is on is still to high; i need to find different ways either to create dopamine doing an activity or doing what i do know, bracking down this conditioned reflexive act into a more present state where i can look at the pheomena without fear or feeling overwhelemed because writing meaningful about it is a very good way of dealing with this compulsive act.

    1.Insight without action is not a powerful changer as psychoanalysis says
    2. Action without ressources keeps you without fuel for change
    3. Ressources without strategy/ies makes you act blindly on the way to restoration of your self
    4. Strategy/ies will take you back to action and so on and so forth.

    Why does it works?! Because the change is real. It's an immense joy to feel every word and every improvement we do on the way to reenchanting our own selfs and bodies.

    And when we say this make yourself sure you feel it with all your body, sensations, mind, breath, every heartbeat. So all of this will reasure you that you relocated yourself in a place with better values where all you need to do is to allow this new good values to define you. We'll be like a a child in a meadow where he/she enjoys the colours and the smell of the new rediscovered flowers without trying to do anything to keep them alive, exept contemplating them will honor them and their esence.

    This is the way of the NoFap Spitting Fire Dragon! :))

    Welcome to NoFap where you are amongst friends who are here to encourage you and sometimes challenge you but not judge you.

    The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy. What are your current strategies for combating the enemy called PMO?

    Hi D.J.

    First i try to identify this situarion as a problem to solve. So i need to define it i those detailes that make me able to manage it and also find an exit criteria from the loop.

    To be honest your question needs a very detailed and long answer. I will try to write it down and come back to you with a satisfying answer.

    Hey! I just started yeaterday and plan to do the 90 day challenge with the hard mode. I am doing this to gain self confidence and have a healthy relationship with my gf. I have started objectifying women and I feel guilty every time I watch P or M.

    DAY 2

    In the morning i could feel.being aroused a bit, but i know that my blader pushes against the prostate so all i needed to do was to have a pee to release the pressure. Over the day i didn't thi k about porn or masturbation.
    In the evening now i had an email from a girl from this community and this turned me on really bad! So i realised that this community has a huge potential of turning against its purpose. But luckly i think that if i say all the time how i feel in relation with my sexuality i can release the preassure from being, ashamed, feeling guilty or trying to dissociate myself and play it cool like nothing happened.
    For this night i'll go back reading from a very helpful book called net.seXXX edited by Dennis D. Waskul.

    Keep your hearts and minds in the same place guys!

    Hey. Thanks mate. This is the second time I am trying it. The first time around I was succesful for 5 days but then gave up. That was 1 month ago and now I am trying again.
    The real problem with I me that I get bored to easily and every time I get bored, I end up M. So this time around, I try to do something I like whenever I get distracting thoughts. Let's see how far I can go with this.

    Today marks 6th day without PM, and I feel great already. I DNS blocked every porn site that I know and found also threw away my toys. Only yesterday I felt a really strong urge and open NoFap application from my phone and it showed me this video and it really shook me.

    Thanks everyone active in this forum, knowing there are other people like you helps a lot. I am going on for 10 days challenge as well.

    DAY 7
    Guys i'm in trouble ... i feel like i'm gonna give in ... I know my trigger ... i went on an online dating website, where 3 gourgeous women apparently are interested in me and we started to talk. And now i feel soooooo arosed! I still think this is a better ànd more real trigger this one than porn, but still somehow masturbation would be like cheating a bit or some kind of rushing things more than their pace in reality. This is a very difficult day for me...
