    I unfortunately gave in last night to MO to my thoughts. Im starting up hardmode again. Hopefully no more setbacks for me this month. Keeping my thoughts clean is the most difficult part for me. Fantasizing acts as my false medicine when I'm lonely, stressed, angry, and have strong bodily urges to fap.

    Ok, August 3rd, Day Three. Let's do this.
    And again: does anyone know how to create a counter that doesn't involve creating a gmail account??

  3. Thank you for the encouragement Toshiro! Wish you the best in your own reboot!
    There is a new challenge every month just FYI. Wish you the best on finally obtaining that month! Try to be smart about it: where were you when you relapses before, what were the triggers that started the relapse process, and what plans can you make to avoid those particular triggers, or deal with them if they are unavoidable?
    Welcome to NoFap, droolpillow! Congrats on your first week PMO free! The struggle is real, but the important thing, as you said, is to always fight on, especially after a relapse. Successful people are not people who never make any mistakes; they are people who are not afraid to make mistakes, learn from them, and improve themselves accordingly.
    Congrats on almost attaining 1 year! Is that one year without PMO, or one year since you started the NoFap program?
    Welcome to NoFap Ernold! Wish you the best with your reboot! Rebooting is an excellent way to improve relationships. It makes you more confident, better able to navigate the intricacies of interpersonal relationships. Hope you discover those postivie sexual changes you are looking for. Keep us updated!
    Sorry to hear about July, but August is a new month, a chance to make a new beginning! Just remind yourself of your resolve when times get tough...remind yourself how you want to be free like a bird soaring through the sky, not some rodent hiding from the world in a cage you created for yourself.
    You do go this, Water Fists! Remember that the key to success in fighting any addiction is discipline. If you haven't done it already, I suggest getting down and doing the hard work to make sure you are prepared for when the urges come!
    Wish you success on your reboot, Strive! Meditation is an excellent way to deal with unbidden sexual thoughts. When you start fantasizing, just go to your breath. Keep your attention on your breath, and the urge will soon disappear. If you start practicing this regularly, you will find yourself fantasizing less and less until you hardly have any sexual thoughts at all anymore.

    Thanks man.
    (But) Its the latter. I had my fair share of (re)lapses, about 65 in total (thats about 30 relapse-days).
    At the same time I should put that into perspective: before starting nofap, I had about 60-70 pmo sessions in a quarter year. So I'm far better than I was, and now it's time to kill this addiction.

    I'm in. I was on hard mode for all of July and I am positive I can go through August to. Only this time I won't be on hard mode. I want a sex life again, I just don't want to be addicted to porn and masturbation anymore. So no P and M for me in August.

    Good luck everyone. Let's do this

    Hi all !

    Beginning this monthly challenge. I’ve started by myself since some days but will continue in a more restrictive way. So I started hard mode since yesterday. I’ll do it for at least one month and then I’ll see (except for porn with I plan not to watch anymore). I’m doing it because of relapses of compulsive masturbation which have made me feel tired and other symptoms of too much masturbation on last months. In fact, in a short time point of view, I want to recover the energy and other benefits we can feel when abstaining from it. And it’s also a good period to challenge myself because I’m in a stressful period and I was used to masturbate when facing negative emotions.

    Successful month for all!

    I am joining also, I have a head start because I have started earlier.
    By the end of the month I will be on 51 days streak. That number seems so big and unreal to me. By focusing on small goals I am pretty sure that I will get there.

    Good luck everyone and stay strong :)
