    I'm still trying to figure out what to fill the weekend with. I mostly catch myself oversleeping, procrastinating and wasting most of the time on saturday and sunday. So based on my first goal is getting up at 6am and to bed at 10am, means 16 hours to fill. Guess I'll spend the morning going outside into the forest and spend some time there plus working out in the gym. So what to do in the afternoon?
    I started taking dancing lessons, so I'm able to meet other people in a different situation the job. I'm not the best dancer, anyway it make me feel better awareness of my own body.
    Day 12 down! Still going tall, still fighting the urges, still not giving up!

    Checking in day 4.

    My problem is very similar, as the weekends are when I have relapsed the most often by far. I'm currently trying to learn spanish, which is half out of an actual desire to learn it and half because I'm in Spanish 1002 haha. I'll probably start bringing my computer with me each time I visit home for the weekend and do some light studying vs the zero studying that I've been doing on the weekends. I've also gotten back into reading, of which I was really into 5 years ago or more (it's a great time killer and is rarely bad for you). I think I'll also start doing some light long-distance running to start getting back into shape. Just a few ideas that I plan on doing that could also be of use to you. Fight on.

  6. I'm also having this problem; trying to solve it by pre-planning my days on the weekend but it isn't a foolproof idea.

    Still going.

  11. I have come to the conclusion that I do not want to quit porn. I don’t know why I don’t want to quit, because I need to quit and I know I have to quit, but I don’t want to.

    If I truly didn’t want to watch porn anymore, I would surmount all my urges with relative ease. Yet here I am atop a new 0 day streak.

    Therefore, my upmost priority is figuring out what part of me is holding me back; what part of me doesn’t want to quit porn and why. Once I know that, I can fix it. And once it’s fixed, I am free.

    Day 0.

    still you manage some weeks clean, it has some reboot value :). now try to see where you stumble, how you stumble. the reasons will tell you how to deal with that issue in the future.

    My man, too much free time and easy access to porn is very dangerous. Don't give up and most importantly go back on track immediately. Don't binge and don't relapse another time after.
    It's not that YOU don't want to quit. It's the addiction. We are exactly aware of the destructive natur of PM, still a force is always pulling us back to the swamp of short term pleasure. This force is the addiction. Ask an drug addictated why he cannot get away from drugs, even he's perfectly aware of what the drugs are doing to his life and body.
    Yet it's in our responsibility to fight back every day, by pushing us away from PM. Metaphorically speaking, the larger the force thats pulls us towards PM, the more we have to push ourself towards a life free form PM.
    Anyway, replasing once every 14 day is still better than relapsing 14 times a day! ;)

    yes, what is your original motivation to do nofap? your motives are very important. if the motives are not solid enough then your effort won´t hold together in the long run, because the reboot is hard and has a lot of challenges.

    just be clear and solid about your reasons. then it all becomes a matter of strategy and perseverance.
