    excellent insigh brother, many relapses happen that way. whenever we´re not in optimal conditions the addiction will kick in and try to "solve" the problem with the dopamine solution. that´s why it´s important to always have physical barriers ready when we need them. better safe than sorry.

    i realize lately that having my phone at night next to me, sometimes causes me hesitation, and i know that hesitation grows in time. so i´ll put my phone away from me at night. better safe than sorry.

    52 days my brothers.

    i want to say that the reboot is hard, i have relapsed many many times since i´m the forum for the last 18/19 months. one thing i learn is to forget about doing "clean" streaks. the mind wants a perfect streak "never pmo again" "never peak", "no hesitations", "no sexual thoughts indulge" etc etc, no stains in the streak so to say.

    i realize that addiction recovery doesn´t work that way. we got to be tolerant with ourselfs, i´m not condoning pmo behaviour in any way, i´m saying that it´s almost impossible to do a "all in" without screwing up sometimes (or many times). what important is to learn to live in abstinence. if i pmo recently, i will learn with that mistake to it doesn´t happen again, that´s it. the reboot is not a race. it´s a endurance shift, a huge process of trial and error. so if you peak it´s not a relapse, it you caught yourself having nasty thoughts about some girl, that´s not a relapse, even if you pmo one time and don´t binge it´s hardly a relapse and the benefits of nofap will continue. the important thing is to learn with that risky behaviour and manage to it doesn´t happen again. learn and continue.

    don´t let the mathematical time challenge overcome the basic of the reboot: living happy :). let´s go my brothers

    Check in. I love reading everyone's post. I can empathize with each relapse and each success. A tip very helpful for me is thinking positively when I felt the worst. I learned there is always something to be positive about. Here are some ideas:

    A reset is not the same thing as a relapse.

    Leaves change faster than the branch, which changes faster than the tree, which changes faster than the forest, which changes faster than the climate. While chaos might seem everywhere, you might be focusing on the leaves. There is slow, deeper, and more long-term change that is happening to the forest and climate. Look at the big picture.

    You will always have this community.

    Every mistake is an opportunity to learn. Success is not possible without failure.

    Solving 100% of the problem may seem impossible, so find 1%. The small changes add up over time. Water created the Grand Canyon.

    Be gentle with yourself. Life can be very hard.

    You're not an addict. You're a person who is being affected by an evil problem that affects all of us here.

    "Flaws" is synonymous with "differences." Differences make us unique. Unique makes us beautiful. Therefore, flaws make us beautiful.

    I've passed 2 months. This is a massive life achievement. I'm so very happy!!!!

    NoPMO: Day 1
    Productive Days from that: 1
    Even though I relapsed yesterday, I don't feel like I lost the NoFap benefits. I reduced my PMO consumption for several times a day, to once or twice a week to now once a month and that's make me feel proud of myself.
    I keep going my path and I feel like the first time in my life, that it's MY path. I'm creating this path by my own concious decisions!

    Checking in. After numerous relapses and binges, I've made it through 2 days again. My longest streak was 9 days (my first streak), my second longest was 4 days.
