    I had the absolute worst symptoms yesterday.

    I am now living in a place where i don't have easy access to massage parlours. Before, i would satisfy my urge by giving in (somewhat easily) and go to do something i shouldn't. Now living away from that, i couldn't. I had to face the urges. They were crazy. So intense. I was like a man possessed. I even tried to find parlour, but couldn't.

    The urges passed and i went home hoping to get some "lovin'" from my GF. She wasn't in the mood (as usual) and i ended up PMOing in a bad mood.

    Just reading this post makes me realise how bad i am. I really gotta quit this. So, i'm on hardmode now.
    If my GF ever gets horny (doubtful), she'll have to wait, in think.

    It was the visualization which caused it to get out of hand. I must have been visualizing for hours until i was in a complete frenzy.

    Back to the drawing board.

    I went through hell yesterday. The important thing is I didn't give in. It's true that our brains are conditioned to seek out pornography to get that satisfaction it desires. However, our brains work for us, not against us. They do things that generate rewards. If you want to re-train your brain then go through the pain and suffer through it. Once you suffer through it your brain will now associate that thing that use to bring you pleasure as causing you pain. It will be forced to re-wire to protect you from feeling this way. Everytime you have crazy urges but resist them you build up that much more tolerance to them. It's like working out and tearing a muscle. It grows back even stronger.

    afr0w, you need to stay strong, you wouldn't be on this website posting if you didn't truly want to quit. It's admirable that you're waiting til marriage and you should see that as a true test of character and manliness. You are showing your girlfriend a great deal of respect by going along with her in this regard and proving to her that she means more to you than just sex. Stay strong brother, don't sweat the small relapses in the past, look towards the future.

    That's a normal part of quitting. It will be tough for the first few days. Just remember that the urges subside after a few minutes and you'll be okay. Avoid any triggers that could worsen your urges, and avoid fantasizing. Just know that we're here for you and that your urges come and go. You just have to ride it out. After a few weeks you'll be in control. Best of luck!

    irock. Wet dreams are okay and its a normal part of the process of quitting. I had 3 wet dreams when I first started out going 90 days. This time around I have no WD's. The first step is hard, but you've already taken that step. Keep movin forward and you'll soon be in control. Just never give up. We're here for you whenever you need us.

    Hi Vanilla. I'm glad you made it out okay last night. Indeed, going through the suffering is the surest ways of developing a stronger mind. It's like facing your fears, being courageous in breaking through it and succeeding in the end. If you ever go through that again, remember I'm here for ya whenever you need me.

    Thanks donkey. We needed a thread like this where everyone can come to one place and help each other out. Hopefully this thread will become popular enough to get stickied. Only time will tell.

    Having a terrible pain in my balls... I came back home from work and after 2h I still have an erection. I'm trying to sleep, but the pain is really intense.

    Almost relapsing to stop felling that way, but I know that I'll feel worse if I PMO or just MO.

    I need to stay strong.

    Great to hear that you are going to stay strong Claudio. Yes, the only way of getting through it is to be strong. These battles that you're going through right now will be well worth it after you go the distance with nofap. Good luck!

    Hey guys. I've been having this steady urge in the back of my mind for about an hour now. I don't know how to explain it, but I constantly feel like I'm at that stage just before you begin to masturbate. If I touch my penis, it just goes hard almost straight away. I haven't looked at anything that would trigger it. Any ideas on what I can do to get rid of it?

    Luc M. Glad to see that you came here for help. I know exactly how you feel. I had the same issue when I was starting out like you. The urge is incredibly tough to let go of and it may feel like you have to fap to get rid of it. The key is to wait it out. Urges are like cravings, they are irresistible at first but if you wait long enough, they disappear. I'm sure if you're patient with it, you'll get over the feeling. Win this battle today and I guarantee tomorrow's battle will be a breeze. Stay strong bro, we're all rooting for you.

    Hey Jimb0, thanks for your words. Really gave me more strength. I just have time to thank you now... Sorry!

    Luc M, don't give up! I don't have the days of Jimb0 of no PMO, but his words are the truth. If you resist these urges you'll be strengthened.

    Stay strong you all!

    Thanks Jimbo and ClaudioFFF! I waited it out, had a cold shower, and the urges are gone. You're right that it's hard to let it go when it's been a big part of my life, but I know my life will be better when I do let it go. I'm half way through day six and the urges have been slight, but constant. But I'm staying strong.

    Thanks for the help, and good luck to your own battles!
