    Here´s Soaring Eagle on the subject brother. i hope it can help you :)

    "Having started to reboot, sexual fantization is an issue that everyone would normally run into. Many people are able to abstain from masturbation, but sexual fantization is like a loosened wild horse, repeating itself every couple minutes. In TCM: the moving of the mind is followed by the walking away from the essence. Sexual fantization belongs to the invisible form of exhausting the Spirit, it is also very damaging to the body, therefore one must overcome it. If your head is filled with fantization but always withholding masturbation, this will also easily give rise to problems. To overcome sexual fantization, one must deeply recognize what it is, sexual fantization is a thought, a thought of evil debauchery. This thought is a thing and that thing is “fire”!

    With this knowledge in place, everybody’s understanding will increase a step. Below, let’s again consider a question: under what situations is fire easily extinguished? Everyone with a bit of common knowledge would know, fire, in the beginning, is easiest to put out, not requiring big efforts to do so. Otherwise, when the sparks have become big embers, then there is no way to control it, chairman Mao used to say: sparks becomes fire, able to alight prairie. Once the fire is greatly developed, you are no longer in control, but from the very beginning, you still have full control. Our sexual fantization follows the same principle when the thought first arises, we discard it right away, this is called “arisen thought is promptly cut off”, strangle the fire in its cradle while it’s still undeveloped. Otherwise, by letting it develop the final result is to be burning with desire, leading to the extreme likelihood of breaking the reboot. Therefore, there are tricks to overcome sexual fantization, the trick lies in the timing, when the fantization first appears, cut it out immediately, or else it will “flourish as it burns”. Put the thought out while it’s still a spark, do not hesitate, do not compromise, don’t miss this golden timing at all cost, remember!

    Rhyme for stopping sexual fantization: Thought arises, cut out. Thought arise, follow not. Thought arise, be aware.
    Once aware, it is naught. When everyone has memorized this rhyme then a conditional reflex can be formed, whenever a fantasy arises it is automatically discarded. Naturally, the condition is to be able to memorize it inside and out by constantly repeating it, let it sink into the subconscious, in this way the conditional reflex for discarding sexual fantasies can be formed. We need to uphold a high level of vigilance and sensitivity, we cannot afford to wait until the fantasy has been developed and then try to cut it off, it will be extremely difficult to control it in such a state. The problem is not with the initial formation of the thought but in the late awareness of it.

    Below I will introduce two kinds of Buddhist heart cultivation methods

    The first method was instructed by Master Empty Cloud, it is to not pay attention to unwanted thoughts. When the thought comes, do not mind it, this is the same as not following the thought we have discussed earlier, do not follow the unwarranted thought, by following it we are strengthening it, not following is the same as severing it! Many brothers have been following vile thoughts for a long time, this is when they suddenly discover that they are fantasizing sexual thoughts, it is already too late at this stage, the vile thought has already taken shape like when a small spark has become a big ember, we no longer hold the initiative when trying to sever the thought at this time, the optimal timing has been missed.

    The other method is called diverting thought. When the sexual fantasy appears, immediately transform it into a Buddha’s name, it does not, of course, have to be limited to sexual fantasies but may also include thoughts of the foolish, greedy and angry orientation. Once it appears, transform it into a Buddha’s name, a phrase of “Amituofo” (Translator’s note: “Amituofo” is simply the name of the Amitabha Buddha’s name in Chinese) will transform it, this is a very good method and I use it quite a lot. As a person of Buddhist beliefs, this method works very well for me, those brothers with a natural disposition towards Buddhism may try this method.
    All in all, to be successful in rebooting, the level of sexual fantization must be surpassed.
    To be able to recover the health, the frequent nocturnal emission level must be surpassed."

    Okay I am back now from my relapses and I made a big change yesterday after my relapse. I have started a hand written journal on my journey. I think that I will be making forward progress now. I am tired of being in the rut that I have been in. I am one day clean and I have already finished my journal for today. If I have an urge I will take a cold shower.
