    Day 161 no PMO. I had a very disturbing wet dream last night. I keep telling myself that I was asleep so I can’t be held accountable for my thoughts but I’m still very disappointed in myself and scared for what it means about me. You know how people say “your true self comes out when you are drunk”? I wonder if the same is true for your dreams. I hope not.

    i don´t think so bro. because you´re laying your expectations on the meeting and not in yourself. what happens if the meeting goes wrong? you´re gonna fap your way throught the pain of disappointment?

    no bro, you got to depend on yourself. only on yourself. the mindset that you´ll bring to the meeting depends on yourself, on your work, on your strategies, on your discipline, etc etc.

    don´t expect urges to disappear because of x, y, z. your task is to develop coping skills to deal with urges IF they appear. the rest is beyond control.

    of course. porn and masturbation are both destructive behaviours. and for most people here, they are inseparable. so, the two must go, all the way ;)

    no bro, there´s nothing to worry there. wet dreams is just the body releasing sexual tension. once people stop fapping and their hyper sexual stimulation stops, from time to time, the body needs to adjust and release sexual tension, that otherwise could not be released. so it´s a perfectly normal behaviour.

    plus don´t forget that we have gigabytes of sexual material in our heads, so there´s plenty of material to choose from to create a sexual dream ;)

  13. Wow this thread is ridiculous but I'm also reidiculous so parhaps it's all good then. I had a six month streak but fell off and didn't learn and practice enough of what I learned on here. This time I'm doing it right and getting serious about the svadyaya of nofap. (study and practice).

    No shortcuts.

    And just when I reach Day 9, I then go and let stress at the thought of two upcoming video-call interviews make me mess around with anal play and ejaculate. Back to Mordor I fall

    Checking in. Fell again yesterday. Sucks but I'm starting to reach that point where I can truly feel how much I hate porn again, and the willpower is growing that I can see breaking through the four day chaser barrier. Things I can get done in the same amount of time I spend PMO, that build me up rather than tear me down:
    1. Super hard workout
    2. Practice guitar
    3. Woodwork
    4. Call old friends and talk with them
    5. Take my dog out and see her happy
    6. Study chinese
    7. Read and listen to podcasts
    8. Clean the house
    9. Ride the trainer
    10. Journal
    11. Cook
    12. Wim Hoff and Cold Shower
    13. Meditate

    A while back my brother got me a Lord of the Rings bookshelf diorama, that needs a lot of patient care to put together. Tonight I'm going to put on some chill lo-fi and build that, as a recommitment to my sobriety and this challenge.
    Be well everyone
