    This guide contains every single way I used to stop pmo for about 5 months:

    Don't start a chain: a "chain" is you thinking to yourself "lets watch a picture of a cute girl, it's not porn" and then it's escalates all the way to porn, chains can start from the simplest and most innocent of thoughts, so be smart to stop yourself before begining

    Listen to music: not a specific genre, just anything you like, it destroys urges

    Write a journal: it really helps, writing one helped me get over the urge that I got on day 64, it lasted 7 hours

    Write on a price of paper why you want to quit: so yaay you made it far, but then you relapse, why? Because you forgot why you started, write why you started then Everytime u get an urge read it

    Read relapse reports: they show you what it feels like to relapse, and u will want to stay away from it

    Stay away from your device during urges

    DONT YOU DARE PUT YOUR HAND BELLOW UR BELLY BUTTON: It's a rule, if u put ur hands down there, it's an instant relapse button


    Don't do checks: the most important one, DONT DO FUCKING CHECKS, they're dumb and useless, and lead to relapse, please avoid them

    Imagine your life if u quit, and then imagine it if u don't, which one do u pick?

    Also watch this video: the main idea is to lose weight, but the narration is really helpful, good luck:

    Very true. If I can add something to this, keep yourself busy by giving yourself more tasks within your day. Gym, watching diet, learning something new etc. When tempted go to the gym or have a rigorous physical activity that clears your mind and puts you to bed till morning. If you can, stay with family or a friend to make pmo harder. Good luck.

    1) Addictions are strong, you'll find yourself doing the most basic things that cause relapse over and over again. So it does not hurt to repeat things.
    2) Exercise clears your head, and when tired you can sleep easier without being in your head too much. Saves you a day while the urges slowly subside.
    3) By new activities I believe these should be important things in your life, new job, new qualification etc. Something that stands to improve your life. After doing it for a while and your brain registers that you are closer to achieving it, you usually start focusing more on it.
    Fighting this is almost like fighting with your inner self. Best thing to do is to continuously reduce the chances of relapse.

    Thanks man, I really needed to hear that, "pain is temporary, quitting is forever". I've been suicidal and that will help. To anyone reading this, just have a goal and focus on that, don't doubt what if, just run with your goal, think nothing other than your goal.

    This is one of the most absurd and asinine things I have read.
    When you have a shower you're going to be touching your dick so you can clean it. When you urinate you have you to adjust your penis so you don't end up pissing everywhere.

    By going through your logic of "don't put your hand below the belly button" you didn't mention a specific purpose, you didn't say "otherwise you will fap" you just said it as a general statement. So basically putting your hand below your belly button to adjust your penis to urinate and to wash your penis equals to continuous relapses, which means your streak is continuously reset.

    Sounds absurd right? Unless you cut your own dick off or amputate your hands, you will always touch your penis no matter what the matter might be.
