    Whe
    Edging is a grey zone. Everyone has their own opinion about it.
    In my experience, it has always led me to relapsing sooner or later.

    I am tired from studying and planning. Once, this would have been the moment for me to quit and close myself in the bathroom for porn. I am different, but it is strange what I'm experiencing right now: it is almost as if I could sense my old behavior still wired into my brain.

    Have anyone else experienced something similar? It could be described as looking at your past self or, maybe more appropriately, to feel your past self.

    Haha, thanks... Was reading a bit about Blood Angels, and found it, thought it would make a good profile pic. Nice, to see that someone noticed :)

    Well every time you edge you basically entertain those old pathways in your brain that you really want to let go of. It's like letting a a small trickle of neural transmissions pass through that river of a neural pathway that you've created over the years of PMOing. If you're not careful that small trickle can turn into a flood at which point you relapse and those old pathways are back in full (almost full you've still made progress towards making it derelict by already abstaining) capacity.

    I would highly suggest you don't edge. After all it is still entertaining an old behaviour that you want to let go of. You've got to step away from this with both feet man. You can't have one foot in the world of PMO and one outside.

    However...

    There's a saying in my business that goes "Good enough". I believe that letting go in the beginning can be seen a bit like this. If you edge or look at porn etc but don't completely fall over the wayside then it is still progress and you are still changing your behaviour. I think the idea of the perfect streak can be a bit dangerous as the first small lapse in judgement or fall from grace (in terms of NoFap) can result in a fully fledged relapse if you're always aiming for the perfect streak. This can obviously lead to you not recovering at all. Settle with good enough in the beginning and feel good about yourself if you accomplish this. Once you've accomplished "Good enough" status, whatver that means to you, then you can start focusing on perfecting it. Obviosuly, if you can, you want to aim for the perfect streak right away... I don't want to have anyone here not realize their full potential or undermine their ambition with what I am writing here... but even just cutting down on PMO is progress. You know how some people have "meat free mondays" if they want to progress towards a vegetarian diet? Id say "PMO free friday" is still progress just like that and you should feel good about any progress that you make on this journey.

    At the end of the day I think you make it harder for yourself if you edge though. Remember that when you feel those urges... that's when your brain is actually recovering... so really you should celebrate every time you feel those urges. In a way they're good for you although it might not feel that way. As long as you don't entertain the actual urge that is (obviously).

    That's great to hear man :) I'm happy my not so subtle Warhammer 40k indoctrination of the NoFap forum is working...

    Really though I actually do find the lore really motivating. Reading the novels and stories are like pre-workout material to me :D every time I'm at the gym I imagine myself being a Space Marine in training.

    For those of you who may be a bit more curious and get into the vibe of this massive and glorious universe that I've made you all larp for a month. This video is for you. It's not just about Space Marines but more of a holistic view of the major factions in this universe.



    If you've got some time to kill or feel urges or whatever then just check it out. Enjoy.
