    To reduce wet dreams:

    Learn to do nauli kriya. You have to block all your pelvic muscles when the need to ejaculate appears in the dream. It's like contracting to the inside your abs, glutes, anus this creates the blockage of the PC muscles so if they are block the contraction muscles in charge of ejaculation get inactived.

    You'll have to do it in a semi conscious state but it's possible. Practice it while being awake with an empty stomach

    Practice some lucid dreaming techniques, write a dream journal and if you can wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake 30 min then go to sleep again that way is more easy to have a lucid dream.

    Controlling wet dreams involves controling dreams and intermediate states between wakefulness and sleep state.

    If you want some other tips. I just made a thread based on this post

    Day 10 check in

    Glorious day today, I've been rather productive and feel good. There's still more to do, though, so I won't tarry here long. I'll try to go more in depth tomorrow.

    Oh yeah, I'm also halfway to my short-term goal!

    I have beaten my most recent no P streak of almost 10 days as I am now on day 11 no P. And I am on day 6 no MO, so I am officially an Urak-Hai!

    I feel like even though I have MO'd three times since my last PMO session, the separation from fantasy both in my head and in visual stimuli has drastically improved my confidence. I am feeling a lot right now, and I also feel so much clarity. I have accomplished almost all of my goals for the week; I still need to do some reading and summer scheduling by Saturday evening, but my goals are coming together. I just got a job offer for a summer job that will take me through August 6th, so I will be working approximately 37 hours a week for $15+ an hour.

    My Spanish is coming along pretty well. I can have short conversations with fluent speakers and get the gist of what they are saying, and then respond. I sometimes misunderstand and say something silly, but then they get this confused look and I ask for clarification and then I give the right answer. It feels great. I feel like in a few months I could be conversationally fluent in Spanish, especially if I keep talking to people.

    Best,

    Day 3
    Was super busy again today. Adulting can be hard and time consuming as I've learned finally moving into my own house. However, at least the business has been productive and kept my mind off of p. I feel good, some urges come at random times but they are nothing super strong. Its important that I don't let life get too fast though.

    Just checking in again!
    That sadness has gone away. Restarted my training routine and I feel awsome. It was really worth it sacrificing it, it surely helped me get through the first days and I think I'll be more prepared to deal with urges now.

    Day 178. Feeling a little bit better today but still experiencing strong urges. This has been a difficult leg of my no PMO journey but I am pushing through and staying diligent.

    Day 67 check-in (Attempt 4) -
    The Gates of Argonath, The Pillar of Kings.
     
  12. @RiseToGreatness Thank you for the explanation. I didn't realize that intense exercise could have that effect.

    @Slider8 I wouldn't say in general I eat a lot of meat, but for that particular meal I ate a lot of chicken because I wanted protein to help my muscles recover.

    I'm resetting my counter to day 0 for edging. This isn't something I've done before, but I need to keep track of it because participating in this challenge has taught me that edging is just as destructive. It still contributes to an addictive mindset. I don't feel as shameful or guilty about resetting as I normally do, because this is a deliberate step meant to help me, not just feeling like I've failed something.

    3 days. Running + push-ups + sit-ups, and I will do that every day until I become a strong uruk-hai.

    Day 102 no PMO. I’ve had a good week spending time with family and new friends. Headed home today. Long car ride... lots of time for the mind to wonder. Wish me luck.

    Day 11
    My mood has been all over the place since i started my journey.I woke up feeling sad and empty for no real reason.Not long after that a really strong urge hit me.Tried to calm myself by going outside for awhile but it didnt work.Went back home feeling even more tempted.I almost failed.While starting to search for P i managed to stop myself , threw my phone away and ran into the cold shower.In that moment i was literally feeling like a wild animal acting on primitive instincts.Followed up the shower with medition.It was still very hard to focus,images were flashing in my head, thoughts were racing but i finally managed to finally regain control of myself.
    After all of that i again realize how severe my addiction is.Never before had i felt so powerless over my body and emotions.I dont want to feel that way ever again.My journey continues...

    PS
    Thanks for all the advice on WD!Will definetly try out the techniques and as for meditation i am starting to create a daily habbit!

    Man, I'm getting shaky just reading that. I think I somewhat understand how you felt, and props for taking control in the situation and doing the right thing, that requires strength.
