    Thanks and Great but why did he post it in the first instance @hellcaster please explain your mess people have been working hard for breaking their addictions I am not a very big addict so I ignored the trigger but what about people who are sensitive and addicted, you are a 29 year old atleast have some piece of mind you in you man how can you ignore such important rules at a website where you know all of this is not allowed, I know you have apologised but I would firmly remind you once again if you don't want to get banned go and read the RULES if you can't find them ask anyone all of the members of this community are helpful enough to tell you where you can find them, but whatever you do think twice before posting!!!!

    That´s pointless. The user was probably a spammer creating disturbances in the thread.

    i´ve seen these guys spamming in other threads with porn images. i think it´s the first time anyone spams our lord of the rings thread.

    Fellowship, if you see something of the like, just report and scroll over.

    Thanks moderation team :).

    Probably a Sauron's agent testing our will, be on your guard !!!


    This is a very interesting analysis, and I agree with it.
    That is probably why my favorite fantasy is to watch my girlfriend having sex with someone else, like a voyeur, this is just the continuation of passive PMO.

    6 Days here.

    The first 4 days were really easy, but I feel super depressed now, like I want to cry every day.
    I understand my addiction was just there to silence my issues, and I now got all of them and those feelings slapping me in the face.
    But I can't ignore them, at least I feel alive.
    It's hard but I don't want to fail so soon, I'll never fix my life if I go back to my old "sleeping" state.

    Feeling a bit tired now, but i think it´s the digestion after lunch :D.

    I´ve been active all morning and following my reboot strategy. nothing serious to report, only light urges.

    Checking out. Have a great day Fellowship!!! :) Stay on the path ;)

    Real question because I'm am on the edge of relapse.

    For as long as I've tried nofap my main tactic was just to not be in my home alone. That is my absolute strongest trigger.

    But at the same time, isn't running away from it just as bad because I'm not dealing with the main problem?

    I'm at home now, and I want to fish even more than I want to watch porn. And it's shit.

    Should I escape my house, and never "fight" it head on?

    I've hit the big red emergency button 5 times, I know everything about why I'm doing this, but a part of me still want to fall dawn

    I've been fishing again, but slightly touching myself as well to get the erection and keeping it.
    Just wanted to check if I'm still a man, like a fool ><

    I'll try to stop that for good, but do you think it's a relapse and that I should count it like one or can I continue my current journey ?

    Life as a meditation

    The essence of the Way is detachment. And the goal of those who practice is freedom from appearances. Bodhidharma

    I’m always trying to push my limits and solve the puzzle on how to do it. Yesterday a very good idea crossed my mind all of the sudden. I remembered the girl I had sex for the last time a very beautiful woman, I had sex that time with the words of my father in my mind “I never enjoyed a woman” he is a tantric sex practitioner, so he does sex as a form of meditation. I had sex that way, even do I had the most beautiful girl in front of me I was simply having sex, you could say sex is for enjoyment and this is not natural, but well, this is tantra and more like a spiritual practice. The point is I never felt better; I enjoyed it in a different way, like a deep meditation state. I achieved being detached to one of the most pleasant experiences of my life. I felt big amounts of energy and calm.

    I’m going to apply this to life “seeing sex as meditation” now it’ll be “seeing life as meditation.” This will allow me to keep pushing my limits, I can face pain, being tired and keep pushing because I’m not over identified with the feeling.

    This is an experiment, lets see how it goes.

    Day 86, trod on! I trod towards Yellowstone today!
     
  13. I hope you're still clean! If yes, great!
    In any case, congrats on the 10 days! Now you're double digit, this is a milestone already! Relapse makes absolutely no sense. Imagine how you would feel afterwards. If it happened already: get back on the horse!

    Day 23!

  15. As one can see (counter) I have relapsed today. It was short, it was quick, but total shit! I triggered myself when I did recovery work (here) - what a mess!
    Well, it's not the first time that I was triggered on the forum. I think the reasons are clear: 1. it is also an activity that I do online (using a device) and which I do anonymously and in secret. 2. Talking about sexuality and porn consumption, even in a sober and rational manner, can obviously trigger sexual fantasies.

    Control your gaze and look away if the way you look is all about sex related parts, look at something else neutral. With some practice you'll get good at it.

    Haha, he's Simon from an anime called Gurren Lagann which is one of my favorite anime ever. Essentially, it's about how this weak and timid boy learns to trust himself and do what he has to for the betterment of the human species. It's an epic funny coming-of-age story that I find really motivational. That being said, there's some fan service (somewhat erotic screenshots), no nudity or sexual themes, but there are girls with large chests in bikinis and that kind of thing. So be careful, the show isn't going anywhere and you can always watch it later.

    Here are some good quotes/images I have on my phone as screensavers though! They all come from the show =)

    Even on the forum you have to be vigilant of what you read and if you feel it's wrong just stop reading it. Treat some posts content like a fishing material and if you feel it's wrong -stop reading and go to other interesting post to read while marking in your mind the author and being mindful of reading posts from this fellow in the future.
     
  19. Thank you! Sometimes even technical cues like writing on a keyboard or opening a tab feels like a trigger. I think I need to be much more aware, careful and responsible.
