Hello all, I've spent the last week or so doing something I haven't done so much lately, which is sort of binge-reading Nofap posts. I used to do it a lot during my first 90 days, then I eased down to coming here only occasionally. Anyway, I've been inspired to share a few tips that've helped me, including with a huge bought of urges that I had recently: Keep your eye on the prize. When I say this, I don't mean choosing a specific goal (say, 30 days, for example), but really imagining the big one: being PMO-free for the rest of your life. It's not just about counting days and just waiting to beat your record or whatever. It's about fully expecting to live a good, clean life from here on out. When you have strong urges, concentrate on the fact that if you relapse, it doesn't just mean losing your streak. It means having to wait all that time all over again. We're a very impatient generation. To even try imagining waiting 30, 60, 90 days again - seems practically like eternity... So might as well not PMO, right? People sometimes write about how they're spending too much time on the site, but I believe that when all else fails - it's better that you just surf these forums until your urges weaken. At least here you can help and receive help, along with concentrating on bettering yourself, unlike other, more popular sites out there. Walking. Anxiety, emotional problems, anger, etc, are some major causes of both relapsing and just wandering around moody all the time. Several years ago, my doctor suggested I take walks for my mood. Only this year I started listening to her, and it turns out that simply walking is amazing! Breathe in the fresh air, let your thoughts just sink in, don't listen to anything - let it just be you there. No distractions. It's time to get to know yourself better. Granted, you need to do this several times. But after awhile, I expect you'll start feeling a bit better about yourself. In terms of really changing your life while rebooting - turns out it's about taking risks. Scary ones, even. I say this as someone whose shyness has often practically paralyzed me (This goes way beyond social anxiety). When I say "risk-taking", I mean that if your brain says: "This is crazy, don't do it" - then do it. To conclude, I'd like to say how much I appreciate all the people here who've been so helpful and supportive, and how amazing I think it is that though we all disagree here on a lot of issues (politics, religion, etc) - when it comes to this issue, we can all agree this has to end. Wishing everyone the best of luck on your journey.
