I'm placing this here because I pretty much wrote a book for @markbr but it got deleted because of the character limit in the comments. So here goes. This thread is for posting all the tips you use to get out and away from sP. I'll start. I have about 14 days under my belt so I think I have at least a semblance of qualification to give some tips here. The thing that has helped me most is - stay busy. It really isn't a buzz phrase people use on this site. It's the - rats cant get addicted to cocaine if they are doing regular rat things with their regular rat buddies - sort of philosophy. I will give you an example by taking my day. I force myself to wake up at 5:45, then I do mouth wash, get a glass of water, check notifications here, then do my anki japanese flash card deck reviews, then I do half of my kanji practice, then make flash cards out of the unknown words and sentences I collected last night, then I do chores, then I cook breakfast, then I check my school (though I just finished so I wont have to do that anymore) then practice for about 2 hours on guitar, then eat lunch, then read my favorite linguistic blogs, then read books (my currents are the bible, road to wigan pier, and the inner game of tennis), then talk to friends or if I can go out, then work out, then do evening chores, then eat dinner, then do the other half of my kanji reviews, then do any flash card reviews, then find more sentences in japanese media to make flash cards with. Finally I put my phone away on my bottom bunk, then go to sleep without it. Take all of your empty time and take it up with something you suck at until you start not sucking at it and add more things on from there. Also, STAY AROUND GOOD PEOPLE. I was just going to say people, but I remember how my friend was telling me about how a lot of his friends will watch porn en masse or you know be just plain gay to each other (in the lame sense, gay people are alright.) So I corrected it to good people. If you stay around people who actually care and will do good for you it will help you tons. If you live with your family leave the doors to your room open, if there is something you can do out loud on in their presence, do it. I find It's really hard to make time to fap when around people constantly. Also people will notice you aloof and might ask you to do something, so It might be a strategy to keeping busy, instead of hiding in your room unseen. Finally: Don't let your brain fool you. When you are doing good your brain will tell you the following, "hey, your doing really good, you might be "straight" again, let's check just one last time to see if you get aroused." This is a lie. The only way you will ever get your sexuality in order is if you are in a clear mind after you are not addicted anymore. The only way to become un-addicted is by starving the circuits of addiction and the surrounding supporting circuits. Don't even be tempted, don't watch arousing stuff. For example I watch japanese new, game shows, and kid shows in my spare time, nothing arousing about Doraemon just good clean fun. Anyways that's all for me, I gotta do my anki reps and japanese and stuff. See ya'll and feel free to comment of course.
