    Hello Fapstraunats,
    I am in Nofap Journey for 2 years now. I am made many streaks like 45 days 30 days and throughout out lockdown, I was on and off for max of 4 to 5 days. I have kept my smartphone aside and only use a laptop to access my work which is majority of time in a day. Somehow I have increased my streak from a week to 14+ days but I have been failing on week 3 constantly. One of my friends suggested that putting phones aside will not be beneficial in long run.
    I am a confused state right now and I will like to have all of your opinions on this.
    Please provide some useful tips too!

    Try not to beat yourself up too much over this. It's quite a common theme that some people consistently reach a number of days before the urges appear to become too strong. For some people at the beginning of their journeys it's literally 1-2 days. For you it seems to be at week 3. Either way, you do normally get through it eventually. Try to focus on the positive aspect which is you are regularly achieving streaks of 14 days at least. That's something to be proud of.

    Thanks. But I can't just be stuck on 14 days I have to grow somehow, that's why I am a little bit frustrated

    You need some other activities to do during downtime. Also when you're bored try and remind yourself that PMO wont alleviate the boredom, it will only make it worse.
