    Hey guys i've noticed i'm starting to get much bigger erections and i'm very tempted to just have a fap.
    Also i had a test for uni today, so i'm kind of in celebration mode.
    Not sure what to do, Please help.
  3. These are examples of the standard tricks my mind would play on me with counter-thoughts

    1. "Better test it out, use it or lose it" Nonsense, I really don't think there's any scientific basis for that.
    2. "Just this one time" One time + one time + one time = a life of fapping and no RL fun.
    3. "I deserve to fap because [I've deprived yourself long enough Deprived? How can I "deprive" myself of an addiction?/ I'm not getting any in RL Well, isn't that what I should be working on instead of wasting time fapping?/ I've done something to be rewarded for "Rewarding" myself with an addiction? That's ridiculous. Addiction is a punishment, not a reward.]"
    4. "I'm lonely, I need to Fap" No, I need to figure out how to have a better social life or how to constructively get engaged in a hobby and use that to build a social life with other people who are interested in that hobby. There's a whole forum here on NoFap devoted to dealing with loneliness. I can hang out there instead of fapping.

    Don't give in brother. Keep on this path to clear the mind from PMO - In the long run you will forget the urge and negative mindset it entraps a person in. Hope you make it easily to the end of October :)

    Porn is nothing but a fiction. Let's go back to real life, guys, the one that matters, the one we should take care of.

    Day 10 of October i know i only posted 3 days ago but i'm 25 days clean today and very proud i feel so much more confident and in control although i have been depressed since last Monday badly just always feel alone etc. and that's been my breaking point in the past,I've found myself struggling with urges today and even though i know i'm not going to i just find it hard to overcome i guess with all the depression by brains becoming tempted but i cant give in not after coming this far and not ever. i guess i'm just updating you lot i hope you're all doing well and if i may ask has anyone found any good ways of dealing with urges while depressed?

    Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

    Reporting in to say that I have failed, numerous times. Never really got off the ground this month. I want to do better. I must. I will! I will meet you warriors on the field of victory yet, I'm just running a little late because my car wouldn't start. Screw you PMO!!!

    I share in your struggles. I have failed more times than I can count. I've been lucky of late to have the help of the Lord and the help of my skype group to keep me going. The only reasons I made it to day 10 this time and not giving up after 5 days. Find something you can draw strength from and use it to help you battle against pmo. Best of luck to you.

  20. I would say remind yourself of why you're doing this (I have a list of reasons to refer to) and then do something else (I also have a list of alternative activities for when urges hit). Good distractions for me are: listening to guided meditation, playing Tetris, watching a DVD (non-triggering), exercise, getting up and simply going into another room. Guided meditation is very good if you're having trouble sleeping due to urges. I hope this helps.
