    So yesterday for a lil back story, I fapped pretty much all day, felt like shit, I feel like shit now. I woke up and said damn I already looked at stuff so I need to fap, but I don’t want to fap. (I fapped so much I just don’t want to anymore now).

    my question is , if I start my streak now, (I have a headache, my eyes are dry, etc. ) will I be fine? My body literally does not want me to fap.

    in the past if I looked at stuff and fell asleep or something I would think I need to fap to start a clean streak. Is this true? Should I just start the streak now?

    Thanks , and
    Even if I started to look at stuff? And I stop right now? I was about to do it but I just feel so crappy. I don’t want to set myself back. And for the sake of my health.

    I had a good fap before I started my current streak, nothing wrong with that. I planned on it being my last one, so I had a pretty good one. So far it's worked out...10 days with no serious pangs.

  5. Yes still keep going. I've literally seen tons of half naked instagram models, dreamt about sex and (accidently) saw some porn during my current streak and I'm still going. I'd say only purposely relapse if you edged enough to get blue balls.

    This is why constantly keeping up with streaks becomes a problem. The streak becomes the focus rather than overall healing, and you start to have the logic of "oh well i already violated p, might as well just mo and start fresh". It doesn't really make sense. You wouldn't tell an alcoholic hey man, you already cracked the budweiser open might as well finish the job. Interrupting the cycle of porn/whatever material you use>masturbation>orgasm before one of those points is still better than going through the whole process.

    If you feel the need to reset the streak because you peeked or whatever, go for it. But don't worsen the situation by masturbating just to feel like its a fresh start, because that's not how the brain sees it. The number might have a "fresh start" but pmo of any kind is going to reinforce these patterns regardless of how you frame it. If you've been binging for a while then I guess you might as well get your "last session" in(there's also another method that involves having a last session sort of but this website autocorrects the name when i type it). I just have to wonder how many "last sessions" have the guys on this website had. There's always gonna be some resistance or pain with stopping, so don't worry about whatever you feel right now in terms of starting a streak because there will always be some negative feeling trying to convince you its not the best time, whether its a headache or something else going on in your life. Just focus on overall healing and getting better at any area of pmo, whether its frequency, the type of material you're using, stopping the cycle at peeking or touching, etc. Its ALL progress.

    Fuck PMO, it's a drug like heroin, if you want to be a slave to a drug it's up to you

    Totally agree with you, pmo is just like addictive drugs.

    that’s not what I’m saying. It is a terrible drug. I fucking hate it. I’ve stopped and that’s that now.
