    I'm in, went a bit of track lastly. Clear mind is the best one can get, f*ck all the judgement. And no more excuses like
    "Just one more time"
    "It can help you get a girlfriend"
    "Being updated" (more like being brainwashed)
    And the list continues. This is just an escape.
    Sometimes I get really bored while working so I'll just play an audio book. Also should be limiting the time surfing nofap too. Just once a day for no more than 5-15 minutes.

    I spent like 12 hours on this website in the past week. And my country went in lockdown so my screentime shot up almost 999%. Like from less than 1.5 hours to 10 hours per day

    Happens man, I remember when my country was on lockdown I had alot of difficulties too. Do your best to spend your time doing other stuff such as reading a book etc.. (if it makes you bored try audio books). I fall too, and my country isn't on lockdown.

    Eventually you will need them. Face the urges instead of avoiding it. Then kill your urges. Eventually, you can do nofap with the internet

    Good luck with that. I've been trying to curb my browsing since forever. Not sure if it or pmo is more difficult to get a hold on as I failed at both but I get the feeling that this is the harder challenge.

    idk why I didnt get any notifications from this thread.
    This what I have been workking on because theoretically I can go 100 day NoFap if I just go live in a forest or something lol. I think doing cue exposure or using filters will work.
    I personally think I am fighting three demons, Internet addiction ,Porn addiction and Procastination

  14. This is why. He explains starting at 3 minutes into this video, you only have to watch the next minute and a half:

    https://www.ted.com/talks/jaron_lanier_how_we_need_to_remake_the_internet/transcript?language=en

    I don't think it's enough to abstain and use it for a small amount of time, we need to understand how it works, how it works on US and have some basic understanding of the psychology around it. Of course some people don't care about the general internet compulsivity just NoFap so they will not be interested or understand.

    I'm in on this challenge. I have been trying to do this for a while now but fail after some days. But this time I am positive that I will succeed. So I am challenging myself to not use the internet (except for study) in the next week. I am going to reset my counter and it will now show my progress with this challenge. I need to go one day at a time , so first I am going to try to go 1 day without internet. I will post my progress tomorrow night here.

    This is a start and it will get harder after a few days but if I can beat P addiction then internet addiction should be easier and after a few weeks it gets easier as I have seen from my experience with P addiction. Also, all the free time I get I will utilize in healthy things, mostly studying. Will try to study at least 3 hours tomorrow and no internet at all, PLUS I also have a bad habit of sexting, so I am going to include that in my challenge as well . Not overburdening myself but not being to loose either. So three objectives for tomorrow and then the next week and essentially whole life, 1. No internet 2. Study three hours minimum 3. No sexting.

    Day 1

    Holy shit dude , I think I have another addiction, I spend like 6 hours on my phone instead of studying. Curbing it requires more than willpower. Thanks for joining in . I finally have some Accountability. Also I use blockers but when the blockers go off . I go binge like a mad dog
