    Idk why but lately porn has been lesser evil than i used to think it was. Now i can barely get out of day one and evening urges are horrific. If anybody can give me some advice feel free to do so.

    Take cold showers, it makes you go out of your comfrot zone and it creates a boost of confidence through out the day, so whenever you feel serious urges you can hop in the bathroom and be freezy lol. Here are some more common advices or suggestions people use in NoFap:

    1) Excercise(if you haven't already)because excecising also makes you confident through the out the day and it gets you body and mind pumped. Whenever you feel intense urges drop down do push ups, sit ups, squats or anything that you can do and makes you tired.

    2) Write down why you joined NoFap, write down how and why PMO destroyed you, think about your goals in life PMO is not the tool to solving your problems in life, think about your dreams in life will PMO make those dreams come true?

    3) Identify your triggers and elimanate them. This advice is very accurate so try to list all of your triggers mentally and physically and elimanate them. For example you relapsed, what did you relapsed to? We're you stressed, anxious, watching netflix, TV, being alone in your room, etc now list those triggers and elimanate them by doing something positive, when your stressed do meditation, if your alone go and stay with your family and friends, if you got memorized sites in your mind then download a P blocker to set a barrier.

    Those are commonly suggested here in NoFap.

    Judging by the fact that you can't get through 1 day without it, wouldn't you say that it has become a problem?

    Do you not want more from life than simply getting high and satisfying your addiction?

    What I seem to find more these days is the negative consequences from PMO don't seem to be anywhere near as apparent as what they used to be.

    All I can put this down to is I used to be a seriously heavy PMO user. I would actually say I was more or less in a binge that lasted for about 10 years. What I mean by that is in 10 years much more days than not I was having seriously heavy edging and binging sessions, and this was going on like this for days. Basically having a behaviour like this that went on for about 10 years. I would say there was rarely a day in those 10 years that I wasn't PMOing at least once, but most of those days were actually seriously heavy edging and binging sessions.

    So a few years ago when I actually tried to stop porn and artificial sexual stimulation the withdrawals I got were severe. Then I have went on for nearly the last 3 years just getting better streaks, just overall just spending much less time PMOing overall. It used to be I would feel better, but then when I relapsed and binged and then stopped again all of those negative withdrawal and mental health problems would come back. But over the last while it has reached a point where even if I relapse or even end up binging, I seem to be noticing very little negative effects from this. I don't know if this might be because my brain has healed a lot because of how much I have overall been away from PMO over the last few years.

    But yeah for me the negative consequences from relapsing and binging on PMO used to be very apparent, But these days when I relapse or binge I basically don't notice any negative consequences from it.

    One worry about this is it might be making me more relaxed and not as worried about succeeding at nofap and pornfree.

    But yeah there is just no question about it that PMOing, and especially binging on PMO used to make me feel much worse than what it does if I end up on it these days.

    I had this issue many times, thinking P is fine and after a few months realising I'm still single, virgin, wasting time PMO instead of improving my life. I don't think anyone doing PMO is fine. Even just the reduced pleasure from everyday things because of the overstimulation from P is enough for me to say that's not fine.
