    So here it goes,

    I just finished writing down a few words on my journal here and was ready to start the challenging day, I was motivated enough, it's been already 23 days without porn or masturbation so things are good. I knew it was gonna be tough day because I might would have some chaser effects after yesterdays romantic times...


    So, I've been doing my best to avoid all the triggers; I quitted social media because I'm sick of seeing bitches showing their boobs and racks along with their duck faces -it really doesn't help much if you're a fapstronaut you know- and I'm trying not to watch TV cause it's full of sexual images. It was already a big effort to restrain from all those but I was happy I adapted myself to live in a world without those.

    However, a friend had sent me link of a vintage clothe store a couple of days ago and I wanted to check their instagram account where they sell their products. I typed the accounts name on google with just one spelling mistake (one of those trendy vintage hipster names that doesn't make much sense) and the first 5 results were all porn related sites. It was 8 in the morning I had just finished writing in this forum! And bang! Seconds later I was looking at hot girls with dicks on their faces...

    Man, what's wrong with this world!!! You just want to check for a torn and dirty sweatsuit from 90's and you are forced to see porn again in the morning while you're sipping your morning coffee before you go to work.
    It's so fucking hard to reboot in this system...

    I feel bad that I clicked on the results, I couldn't avoid it... I still haven't reached to the point where I can hold myself back in a situation like this. I looked at those images and I feel aroused. And I think this is normal! I mean we are not robots and I get excited when I see a hot girl getting her pussy fucked. I can not just sit still and say: hmm, ok whatever... My pulse gets faster, my balls pump a huge flow of horniness into my veins and I get harder. I'm a human and I am a man, god dammit!

    BUT! I'm proud to tell all you amigos there that I DIDN'T TOUCH MYSELF, I checked the images and said fuck it, I'm out of here and I closed the tab. It took some effort... But yes I actually did it!

    So it is certain that even if we want to be deprived from porn, the porn will find us and show itself. Please somebody tell me;
    How do you manage to live in this world while trying to get rid of your porn addiction? Has anyone ever discovered a way to fully protect himself to counter these situations?

    As we all know, sex sells. So we're always going to be bombarded with pretty women across the whole spectrum of TV, internet, magazines etc. It is inescapable.
    However, I try and hang out on the Triumph Owners message board, the Garage Journal message board, Welders message board, Woodworkers message board, etc,etc and Nofap. These sites stimulate my creative, adventure related impulses and have no porn content whatsoever.
    I also get triggered by pics of hot chics, I just try and look away and concentrate on my recovery. Best of luck. You appear to be doing well recognizing triggers.

    Limiting the screen time should work most of the time I guess.

    Yes, exactly, that's why I'm taking the No Screen Challenge. However I have to use my computer in daytime for work, or at least writing a few words in my journal here, it is almost impossible to avoid the screen time but even with innocent acts like keeping a journal on this site can lead you to be exposed to porn. And you don't actually click ona porn website to be exposed to it! The whole social media is like a camouflaged porn site! Adds on the websites include popping up tits and asses, thumbnails you see if you search for a deep house mix -just to chill- have almost no difference with thumbnails on a porn site...

    I know:
    But I still don't feel like my defense mechanism is strong enough to resist this "bombardment" every time I use internet...

    Can it ever be done? Should I go to the Himalayas and lock myself up in a monastery to reach that level of "bulletproofness" or is there a method that I can follow?

    Amazing... I do the same... I've got a Triumph too and its my biggest companion in life, as well as for the nofap path... However I've been working on my scrambler (customizing it little and once and suddenly there was a problem with the injectors so I had to take everything down once again) for the last 6 months so I couldn't ride it. And it's been going so hard for me to cope with my urges when I can't ride because my overall happiness and serenity levels hit the ground if I can't hit the road.

    I think it's about self-discipline and learning how to control your mind and body, be focused on what is actually happening around you. Meditation can help achieve this.

    It used to be hard, if not impossible, for me not to go to a porn site after seeing something sexual... with all the consequences. But then I started to work on disciplining myself to be focused on reality, rather than fantasy or excessive thoughts. Gradually I gained more and more control over myself. It wasn't too long ago when I watched a porn documentary on YouTube, and to my surprise that particular video showed not only breasts in all their glory, but also vaginas and penises. Had I watched that video years ago it would've been another trip to a port site for me, but this time I watched the whole thing and no problems. Sure, I had several erections due to the visuals, but I was able to keep my mind and thoughts on the present moment, here and now - with no struggles or urges. I didn't masturbate for about a week after that documentary, which was well within my goals at the time.

    So I don't need to avoid anything sexual anymore (and of course I don't test myself on purpose - that would be a mistake).

    Another point to make here is that I replaced PMO with me trying to find a girlfriend, and just trying to live a healthier life in general. Before that I tried to just quit PMO and I would constantly fail (and I was often depressed due to the fact that I had no GF - but I'm not anymore, even though I'm currently single - at least I'm doing something about it now and I feel much better about myself). Setting up those goals helped me as well. In psychology it's actually stated that you can't just delete a bad habit, there cannot be a void - you've got to replace it with something else, something that is actually positive.

    I hope my 2 cents help someone.
    Have a good day NoFap! ))

    What you did was great, however, try to avoid Instagram all together even if your intention is to find something useful, you never know where a simple innocent search could lead to.
     
  10. It almost sounds ridiculous, and I used to feel ashamed of myself for avoiding looking at attractive women on the internet in general, but, IT DO BE LIKE THAT THOU SOMETIMES.

    YouTube, music videos, ads, all of it.

    Every day it almost feels more and more like the Christians who talk about dressing and acting a certain way as being sinful, like maybe they are onto something.

    I knew I liked you. I have a Scrambler and a Tiger 800xc. Scrambler for street, Tiger for offroad. I, too, am bummed. It just snowed and the bikes are stowed for the winter. Oh well, time to ski! I try to stay busy and avoid the Devil's workshop. ha.

    They are onto something. And it’s not just the act itself. Whether it’s masturbating to porn, drinking and eating to excess, or being sexually promiscuous. It’s the damage it does to you. It took me sooooo long to accept and internalize this. I never wanted to follow God because I was scared I would lose my freedom when in reality it’s freedom you gain. All those damaging behaviors are the prison.

    I definitely agree with you... I learned my lesson last time... Almost every single time I checked instagram I felt I was unqualified for the things I want in life.. It makes me feel inferior no matter how good I am actually.. I mean I had a stronger self-esteem before all those social medias fake, filtered and edited world projected as the real world that I'm living yet falling outside of. It creates a feeling of abandonment. I used to love myself more, I used to think that my girlfriend was beautiful enough... This god damned app changed everything and I think it is harder than ever now for the people of this age to gain that self-respect and self-esteem.
