    Yeah i thought about the possible punishments i could do, for example whipping myself on the back or punching myself in the face...but as you can tell they're not really enforcing anything positive, just self-hate.

    On the other hand cold showers are actually beneficial, they increase adrenaline/dopamine levels and make you more awake.
    Exercise in general increases Neurogenesis and addictive behaviours have lots to do with the level of dopamine-2-receptors in the brain. It's found people with less D2 receptors usually have less self-control. So learning new things and exercise could possibly help create new neurons and ultimately improve self-control.

    I am looking for ways to break my cycle. I am looking for ways to do things differently than I have done them in the past. In the past monthly challenges have never been successful, nor have any attempts at being PMO free for any significantly long period of time.

    One way I would like to do this is to make it a daily activity. I am nervous about doing this because I don't want either PMO or the recovery to take over my life. I am afraid that with giving this a priority that I might begin to obsess about it and begin to dig my own grave. That said, obsessing about becoming PMO free still quite worthwhile.

    I think I have a solution. Every day I will do an activity to prevent PMO/urges. The first is to say my mantra a bunch of times whenever I shower "The passing has the perfect pleasure". The second is to write and/or read shortly about why I want to quit PMO, why this is important, what I need to change, what is important to me, etc. These I will do for a very short amount of time, but they will serve to remind me that PMO is bad and not what I want in my life, as well that I have the strength to change.

    To all you out there that are struggling and relapsing, know that you are stronger than you think you are. Believe in yourself, and trust the goodness of your goals. We are all still learning and growing.

    I have now used all of my available M's
    The passing has the perfect pleasure
    For loyalty, joy, health, choice, ethics, and love

    I know that everybody on this path of reclaiming their freedom will succeed if they believe! This specific thread and beyond it this beautiful community helped me change my life and realize there is so much more than being entrapped by architects of control. Keep on staying true to yourself's and find the joy of being free.

    I already feel the changes taking place in my life and the way I look at everything around me trough a new perspective: & it has only been +- 25 days. Choice in what you believe can carry your soul and repair any damage done over the years.

    I have achieved victory and so will you - October is almost at an end - I know all the Fapstronauts will succeed at their desired goals -

    Relapsed. It's such a bummer, but I am so far doing the best I have ever done. It's not perfect, but I'm still proud of myself.

    Congrats on your accomplishments! Remember that successful people have failed more times than failures have tried.

    hello

    a never did PMO again, but i have a kind of problem, i have had some wet dreams this week, i know it is not a fallen. I have had problems to getting sleep all of my life, i have had visted the doctor for this, so, i dont sleep a profund part of sleeping. so, when i have a wet dream i dont have the climax when i am sleeping, becuse the process of the orgasm wakes me up every time i have a wet dream. so, i wake up during the orgams, or sometime during the climax, and i finish my self on that moment. i dont know if i have to riniciate de counter.
    Look, i never did PMO again, never, i swear. But i dont know how to manage this kind of dreams.
    Put yourself on my place: You have a wet dream, and you wake up during the orgasm, and the climax happens meanwhile you are awake, if you wake up during the final part of orgasm you know you can not stop this and you finish it with with your hand. technically you dont masturbate your self, becouse you are in a climax becuse of a wet dream, but you finish it becouse you are awake and you can not stop the climax by your self, so you are dreaming but you are awake, it is strange sometimes. do you know what i mean?
    so, i dont want to reiniciate the counter, becouse i have had fight during a long time, but i feel sometimes guilty becouse of this kind of dreams. I dont know if this happens to more people, that happens to me becouse a dont sleep very well, and the orgasms wakes me up.

    i appreciate your advice

    A similar thing used to happen to me--it is mostly involuntary and as you continue on the NoFap path I think it will eventually go away. I don't think you should have to reset your counter.
