    This is something I struggle with alot recently and I know it's making me sicker.

    How do you guys real with avoiding to fanatize? Any tips - there so many ugers and keep trying to snap back to reality but eventually I start engaging with these though. I know it making me worse and will make relapse eventually.

    Any tips?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Several techniques:

    Mindfulness to focus on the here & now, and realize it's just fantasy.
    Meditation to focus on relaxing and calming down.
    Lastly, confront the fantasy, using an internal locus of control, and take control of the fantasy.

    The way I imagine it, it's like using cheat codes on a video game to skip those parts, or change the environment. Or like a speedrun, you don't have to attack every single enemy, sometimes you can ignore them and go around them. It takes practice.

    Hope that helps.

    I think there is no specific procedure, what works for others may or may not work for you. Therefore, I would suggest using many techniques. However, you've got to convince your mind that this not reality and it's fake. Let your brain see the worthlessness of these fantasies!

    I found masturbation helps a lot in quelling those pesky thoughts away. Oh, wait...

    I find picturing a deserted island beach helps. Just focusing your mind on another topic. Also, thinking intensely about another topic you have an interest in that is totally non-sexual. Meditation too.

    I'd imagine the coast, with the fantasies/images as boats & sailboats passing by, moving father & farther away, and disappearing into the sunset...
