  1. I am not able to quit Masturbation since 8years
    I am 20 Now. I no more have energy to fight against these urges and thoughts. I am feeling so helpless.
    This has become part of my lifestyle very badly.
    I eat ,sleep, take shower, do some work and masturbate.
    This is that difficult for me.
    When I quit Masturbation for 4-5 days
    My mind be like - it has been enough time since I did fap last time
    And I go for it.
    Even if I can control it for some days
    I am not able to continue it for much longer time .

    Definitely worse phase of my life

    Hi and welcome @Divyanshu Gautam . You recognise a cycle. What strategies can you come up with to break the cycle? For example, other activities, changing location, changing your thoughts... A journal can help to understand what is happening, why it is happening, and come up with strategies. Persistence is key to overcoming addiction. There are plenty of ideas, strategies and resources documented on this site which can aid in developing the means to recovery. Best wishes for your journey!

    What would it take to convince your mind that you never need to return?

  5. I am still trying to figure out this.
    Only one time I was able to nofap for almost a year because at that time I didn't know what porn is.At that time , I didn't have my first phone.

    I hated this a lot at that time because My classmates used to bully me That I do fap.
    Now , It's hard to collect that hatred for this because Google says it has very less to no impact on body.
    And Noone notices it now.

    But My experience says it destroyed me.

    I can never move towards anything which I hate
    This is all I have to say

    start small, and grow, aim for 6 days. For me a recent realization is that my porn addiction was a tool, it helped me deal with negative emotions. That tool can't work anymore, I had to let go. Are you looking at your addiction with every point of view, if you do, it may help stop the addiction.

    Hi Divyanshu,

    Good thing is that you are 20 years old and your work life is completely open. You still have 5 years mark till you will be 25. 23 is when society will kick you up in the balls (figuratively) for being destroying your shit. You have good strong 3 years ahead. Most people feel really well after 150 days streak of NoFap. You need to start being active and start working out. Do something productive, have cold showers. Do your dishes , laundry by yourself. Exercise discipline. Keep yourself busy with improving yourself so much so that you don’t have time for PMO. You are right it will destroy you up much worse if you continue on this path. PIED, physical damage , emotional damage etc. Start working on it like you are already doing. Fighter.

    More importantly stop comparing yourself with anyone. Compare yourself with the day you were yesterday and keep track of it like a fighter.
  9. Thank you bro
    For your kind words

    I think my main concern is that
    I can't continue nofap challenge for long time because it becomes harder with time
    Urges becomes strong
    It haunts like giants.

    I will be strong on every single day.
    If People like you will be there to motivate.
    If I can notify someone or can talk about get ridding of this addiction
    Probably I will be winner of this battle
    Against these giant urges.
