  1. Having an alarm clock really helped last night! Having my phone out of my room at night is gonna be important for me going forward since my biggest triggers were always before bed. Feeling alot better and more confident that I can keep retention as a lifestyle like this!

    You’re off to a good start mate. Glad to hear that.
    Keep STRONG, Stay Calm.
     
  3. Today was an off day so I focused on NoFap and tried not to stress myself with anything else. Urges were there in the morning and mid day but nothing I couldnt handle. They were definitely present and persistent and also caused some brain fog and anxiety as well. I got through it and hopefully I'll have a good sleep tonight. Last few nights I was restless, even now. Lately even before I started NoFap a few weeks ago I noticed I was getting restless at night. I'm still not sure why, this happened before but not as frequently. Anyway, hope it goes away because it's hard for me to get to sleep. Thinking it's a mineral/nutrient deficiency? But I'm a healthy eater and get exercise.

    Back to my previous best of 14 days.

    Just chill out before falling asleep. Try not doing something that’ll excite you, or work too intensively before sleep. You can try breathing exercises?

  5. I'll try that my man. Definitely could use more of it. I plan on doing more meditation. It could just be anxiety. I had severe anxiety before but has lessened over years.

  7. Hey Kev just wanted to say you're doing a great job so far. I like your attitude and you have a great approach. Thanks for sharing this thread with us. Wishing you great focus and vision. We got this brother.
     
  8. I can count the relapses I've had in the last 60 days on one hand. I've made so much progress and I'm definitely not feeling down in the dumps over it. Every path to success has failures along the way, and I've had my fair share since starting this thread. It's time for me though to get my head back in the game and I plan on starting on the right track this time.

    I'll be going offline from all internet use for the next 10 days... I need a strong start if I'm going to get back into NoFap as dedicated as I was before. I'll be back in 10 days to update my progress on my reboot.

  9. Oof these urges are getting nasty. But I remember this is exactly how I felt the last time and relapsed. This time I'm ready to take them on. I wonder how many days of hell I'll have to go through this week. Either way I'm pushing through this one.

    Be strong, man. We all have been there and we all know how we feel afterwards. You got this.

    I myself was having a moment of weakness so I popped in here to refocus.

    The past few days have been better, i have controlled my urges very well. It is definitely becoming easier to do for short periods of time. I will just keep at it, and I hope you all do the same.

    Good luck, everyone.

    Just wanted to check in. Every single day I have to recommmit. Wish I could just do it once and be done with it. I can tell I'm making progress. I'm finally to the point that I don't mentally undress the attractive woman I'm about to talk too. I feel like I'm having a normal conversation and that she is a person rather than me ojectivefying her. I am married and I love the feeling of being faithful to my wife in my thoughts. It gives me a new confidence and feeling of peace. I hope I can keep going.

    Same here, every few days I need a quick reminder and to refocus my efforts. I find morning time to be the hardest... So I'm back to do just that right now.

    Keep it up, Dale. I strive to get to the point where you are, but I'm not there quite yet.

  14. It's been about 10 days since I posted. I had a very strong reboot of 7 days and I fell again after a wet dream provoked strong urges. I have a spreadsheet of all my stats and this is a tremendous improvement for me ever since my constant relapses happened after my biggest streak yet. I have slowly been getting stronger and better at this and know that I'll be back in it soon to stay. Every single day has to be treated as important as the last. Gotta give it my 100% at all times.

    I also learned more about myself and how I need to adapt to fight this battle. I've been spending more time each day growing as a person and developing myself from the inside out. Nofap has definitely changed my life for the better in way more areas than I could ever count.

    It was 5 freakin’ weeks, going strong.
    I want to cry. I want to reverse time.
    I’m scared of Chaser.
    I need to be more careful.

    We all stumble now and again... I myself had been doing very well, but the mornings are becoming my biggest hurdle. I need to get a plan in place to get through the morning urge and the rest of the day is under control.


    Sorry to hear that, man. It's so stupid how tough this really is, right? It still baffles me that it has the power over us that it does.

    I think we all know that the really important thing isn't about being perfect all the time, but about trying to be better than you were before. Just keep trying and keep growing, that's all anyone can ask of you. Do your best, be strong. You are not alone.

  18. Alright I'm ready to get serious again. It all begins now. This will be the reboot to take it all. I will be posting DAILY. Don't let me go a day without posting here, and I encourage you guys to do likewise! We're in this together! I've got no more excuses, and am finally done running from my purpose.

  19. Alright day 1... Gonna drink some green tea since I feel less energy than usual because of the relapse. Need some of the artificial caffeine energy to help me out in these first few days. My goal is to stay busy all day and use all of my time for self-improvement mentally, physically, and spiritually, so I definitely need some kind of energy boost during this time. Lately my workouts have been going really good. I set up my own home gym on an impulse and it's definitely helping me stay on my game. I also signed up for a few really interesting online courses on gaining internal confidence and understanding how to become an attractive man, so those should also help keep me busy. Going to be also reading my Bible daily and trying to spend time meditating on it, as even some non-Christians have claimed that it has helped them to find purpose through NoFap and to stay committed, so I'm all for having that extra drive to stay committed this time around.
