    The Emergency Room


    If you feel that you are on the verge of relapsing, please reply to the thread and state your symptoms. A fellow fapstronaut will be with you shortly.



    What is this thread about?

    This is a thread to support those who feel like they are on the verge of relapsing. Since the site lacks a chat room where we can support each other in real-time, a thread that acts as one may be the best alternative to one.

    This thread is an "emergency room," for those who feel like they may lose control and may desperately need support on the spot from a fellow fapstronaut. This will remedy the time when our accountability partners are not available or for those who may not have one. We're all in this together and we'll support you at anytime, night or day.

    If you feel a fapstronaut member may need more help, please PM he/she and support them as best as you can.

    Hello.

    Feeling pretty bad today. If you've seen me around here before, you'd know that I've been at least over a full year without masturbating now. Good times.

    I have a lot of problems with anxiety and mild depression, so I started taking some medication to help me out. It kicked in the other day and things were going great.

    Problem is, since I've been feeling so good, I've been not as militant about my Nofap practice. The day before yesterday, I accidentally focused too long on a semi-pornographic picture. Felt my powers zap away pretty fuckin' quick, and it felt really shitty. Did a little bit of research about relapses though and figured I'd only be feeling shitty for around a week or so, given all the progress I've made.

    It happened again yesterday. Goddammit. I was on the treadmill looking at my phone, and accidentally focused a little too much on a semi-pornographic picture again. This time I felt a real big change. I feel really shitty. I went to bed and the urges were un-fucking-believable. I thought I was done with this. Goddammit!

    Just as things were finally starting to get better, I've gone and fucked it up again. How long is this gonna take? I'm seriously hurting here today. I finally get my anxiety issues out of the way and I go and mess this up. I'm scared of everything again. I want to know how long I need to deal with this until I come back to my regular self. This is almost unbearable considering I've been free from it for so long.

    Any words of encouragement would be appreciated. I've lost my motivation for nearly everything that I've built up the last year. I don't know what to do.

    It's normal to feel urges from looking at stuff. Being free from PMO isn't about having no libido when we see attractive women - it's about reconfiguring our minds to view reality properly.

    You haven't utterly failed. You can do this - and you are free. You just need to continue acting out your freedom.

    I think this is a great idea for a thread jimb0. Well done.

    Also, do not hesitate to use http://emergency.nofap.org while you are waiting for a response. This could mean the difference between relapse, and recovery.

    Seeking help in a time of crisis is not weakness, but strength. Get help.

    You are worth it.

    Hi Betterman,

    The best thing to do in that situation when you feel strong urges is not to go to bed, but to wait for those urges to pass by. It takes about 15 minutes. I've read that the first few days are the hardest for people trying to quit the second time. For me, it took a week before I got back to feeling normal again and could manage my urges a lot better. I think the same thing goes with you, you just have to ride it out.

    Thanks Vanilla. I saw a lot of members posting their own threads about how they were on the verge of relapsing. They needed some support right away and it's hard to help them if they're all scattered throughout the forums. I thought this would be a good place for those looking for support that everyone can easily find and help them out. Although I think the http://emergency.nofap.org is a good tool to use, a personal comment from a fellow fapstronaut goes a lot farther. No one wants to feel alone in this, and although pictures and encouraging words may help, it doesn't substitute for encouragement from a real person. Just my 2 cents.

    I know man, I'll get through it.

    Everytime I get hit with a relapse or I fall back somehow, I have such a hard time accepting it and moving on. I just mope through it for the first few days and hope to God that it somehow clears up. I guess that's really what I need to get help with, although it still sucks to relapse.

    Stay strong bro! Ride it out. The urges will subside. Read a book, take a walk, or take a cold shower. Don't sleep if you're still horny. Just ride the wave and it shall pass. Remember, it gets easier over time. Hang in there mate!

    Hope, try a cold shower or take a walk. It sounds like your body just needs to move. Also, please remember this is a emergency room for people on the verge of relapsing. Hope you do well on your exam.
