    Hello. Going cold turkey on NoFap is difficult when you first start or are anywhere along your journey. The road is bumpy and relapses may happen every now and again depending on how deep in the rabbit hole your relationship to porn or PMO was. NoFap is a hard journey that leads to much suffering in the body and mind, but we got to push through it in order to get better. See it this way instead, you made it for 7 days and that is a MAJOR feat in itself. Many people are not even strong enough to do that. I think relapsing, to a certain extent, is okay as long as you don't fall back into the same cycle of PMO that got you there in the first place. In other words, if you relapse to the same porn that led you down a dark path, and keep watching (binging) that same porn over and over again, that's when you know that you have not made enough progress. You have to start building willpower in your mind and that means accepting the pain and suffering that comes with this NoFap journey.

    You can turn to religion, practice yoga, eat healthy foods or go on diet (say no to "the crap"), clean up or abstain from your other bad habits, build confidence, build up your body and your mind.

    Same, I always relapse after I get a sexual/wet dream it's so annoying, when I don't PMO, I experience sexual dreams very frequently. Once I did NoFap for 6 months and I was so proud of myself, but I relapsed and since then I've been unable to keep doing NoFap

    OP read up on and familiarize yourself with "the chaser effect": https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/rebooting-porn-use-faqs/what-is-the-chaser/
    It is a very common pattern with addictions, not only with porn. The more you educate yourself the better are chances to avoid this behaviour in the future.
    That's also the reason why it is important for us to stay away from Porn 100% and not think it is okay to edge a bit or just "watch once". Be careful!

  9. Quit PMO and begin learning a hell of a lot about yourself. Be determined, but don't get too upset if you get tempted and PMO. Learn from it. It's all about keeping a good attitude.

  11. Practice makes perfect. Just remember that, relapses happen and when they do just dont get caught up in how much of a failure you are
