    Try to do something else that is important for you, to not consider the time as completely wasted. I had some bad realpses too last week and I used heavy training to get back on the track. Maybe that would help you too. Just try to do it better next time bro!

    Not relapsing on the same day feels more difficult somehow. Need to put some space between the failure. I'm going to leave the house now and go for a walk. Sick of this laptop. Had just 5 hours in, but I guess when the streak is only a few hours it is less of a deterrent.

    Day 0: 33 minutes in as of now.

    I find that when I relapse, I have a period of time when I keep failing until something sticks and I can get a new streak. I wish I had better advice, but all I can say is ride it out and keep trying.

    I'm in the period of repeated failure right now, but I've been able to reject a few urges over the past couple days, so hopefully it means I'm ready for a new streak.

    Do you already work out? This helped me most of all the strategies. I also try to be among other people as much as possible if I consider myself to be in a weak state. Another possibility would be using a porn blocker like cold turkey. I use this and it saved me lots of times.

    I've just started working out, but I've been running regularly since I started doing NoFap. You're right exercise does make a big difference in overcoming urges when you are determined to fight them. My main problem is that my conviction has felt weak for a while now and exercise can only do so much when you aren't committed to fitting porn. Luckily, I think my conviction is slowly starting to strengthen again.

    I think this video is extremely motivating

    I relapsed hard the past week for several days and long sessions. I could not remember how good you could feel, if you are full of energy and your dopamine reward system is repaired. But now after 4 days I got the feeling of self-controll back and I am convinced, that I will tackle my problems. In state of multiple relapsing it is for me often impossible to imagine how I would feel after some days without PMO. But now I can rememer it and how it feels to tackle every problem at once an couragely. Maybe that could motivate you a bit more.

    Day 9! Just realised, I'm a Padawan :)
    Thank you guys for doing this, I feel like if I read more about the different stories it gets easier to beat this and I become more motivated. Stay strong and may the force be with you

    Day 17 completed!! It's difficult when your Jedi days don't match your streak, I have to do math now everytime I post. Overcoming my 30 day hump was worth it and helped me refocus on the right path
