    Wassup everyone I’m on day 18 and the urges have been really strong for like a week and a half straight. I want to share this with you because I believe it can help others on their journey. But anyway I’ve been having urges everyday all through the day and I manage to make it through fairly easy. Here’s the thing...I don’t watch YouTube videos at all I just listen to music. And I also don’t get on social media of any sort ! If I get on a website that even seems close to social media I look it up on Wikipedia and if it says social media or social network next to the “type of site” , I DO NOT GET ON IT. I’ve deleted my WhatsApp , Facebook messengers, I don’t even get on reddit because it is considered a social network. Like i said I still listen to music on YouTube(always positive music) but I never watch the music videos or even read the comments below. I know that seems extreme but it works. I am doing this for at least the next 3 months(until 2019). When I have a urge now I never go overboard or relapse because I have no outlet to. What I mean is if I stay away from those 2 things I don’t relapse for some reason. Oh and ofcourse I stay off of porn sites lol(obviously). If you take anything from this , just consider staying of YouTube and social media, for the next 3 months. Force yourself to socialize in real life , or you can socialize on forums like this,that’s fine, because all these forums are just for supporting self improvement. The bad part about this ( or should I say good part) is when you cut off all these things your brain goes crazy and you become so built up with energy you are bound to find an outlet to get dopamine from. You might actually go out and approach a girl. I haven’t yet but I’m working on it and I am seriously considering it more than ever because Im SO built up with energy). You may start working out , writing , making music, I mean the sky’s the limit!! But yea that’s what helps me. I guess that’s all for now people but I hope this helped you. Would love some feedback too.

    Peace

    Good post and ideas about staying away from common triggers that many people mess up on.

    Good idea -- doing no pmo will "Force yourself to socialize in real life."

    Women will be checking you out more and more -- or you can approach them whenever you like.

    Thanks for your feedback man and that’s true I definitely have been getting the eye from more chicks. But for some reason I just don’t have the confidence yet to actually approach them
