    Hey friends..
    I am appearing for a very important exam on 10th may..
    I am trying to quit pmo but I lack concentration, feel depressed and much more..
    You all know how it feels....
    It affects my studies and after the exams I have a 3 month long vacation.

    So my question is should I stop nofap till 10th of may...???!

    Hey Alex30.

    Should you stop NoFap until 10th May? Are you talking about not coming onto the site, or starting to MO until after exams?

    If the latter, I would say, definitely not mate! Wacking off might give you temporary relief from the anxiety & depression you feel at the moment, but it will only last for a very short time. If you go down that road, you will end up doing it more & more, to cope with your emotions. Better to get some regular exercise, take regular study breaks for a walk, avoid coffee as much as you can etc....

    If you're talking about just taking a break from visiting the site, maybe just check in once a day.

    All the best with the studies & stay strong.

    Hey Alex30

    I agree with T22. I know what it's like to use PMO to gain some relief and to justify it as "clearing my mind" because it was all I could think about. Be strong mate. You know what is important to you. You know the end goal you want to get to. The community here will try to help as long as you let us.

    Best of luck for you exam

    Exams by definition are stressful in and of themselves. You will be stressed regardless of whether you PMO or not.

    If you think that PMOing up until the exam will relax you, I think that you are mistaken.

    The best way to alleviate stress from exams is by studying. If you understand the concepts and the work on the exam, what is there to be worried about? If you do not understand the course, then find a tutor or some extra help. If possible, see if you can find copies of your teacher's exam from last year and try to write the past exam.

    Thank u all for your suggestion and I have decided to continue my NoFap journey..
    I will get only a mark sheet having some numbers in it by exam. But if I fail in NoFap exam than it will affect my whole life....

    Great to hear that Alex30. So true - if we can break the PMO habit & deal with whatever we face & feel, without resorting to PMO, we will grow & reach our maximal potential.

    We are warriors, no doubt about it!

    I struggled with a similar thing during my degree. I would suggest to try and stay the course of not PMOing but I found it helpful to give myself a schedule. As long as I did the required work between say 3-6pm if I slipped after that I at least felt that it wasn't interfering with my work. This didn't always work, but I found it the best way to focus on work with out overly worrying about PMO.

    I agree with traveller22. If you have a lot of studying to do, do not spend too much time on this site, it can also be addictive. Try to focus on your schooling. This is very important. Keep busy. Think about all the material you have to go over and that way your thoughts, the troublemakers, will go away. Your urges will subside. Don' t masturbate, that will only make things worse, much worse.
