    Halo guys, this is my 68 NoFap Journey. It's been ups and down, but I can feel that I'm getting better and has felt some of it's benefits.

    But what I want to ask is about triggers. You know triggers are almost everywhere. On TV, youtube, web ads, movie scene etc..

    Sometimes I see one and immediately look away and be fine. But sometimes there are triggers that is not so sexual like sex scene, but can "aroused" you if you look too long on it or you are too sensitive on it. Then sometimes I'm a little bit angry and anxious afterward because I don't want to look at things like that anymore.

    Is getting aroused with triggers bad for you? Will it slow down your rebooting? I know it's not relapse it's just making me worried and anxious afterward.

    I guess what's been helping me, personally, with triggers is trying to understand why they arouse me. I recently discovered that some of my triggers have to do with unresolved obsessions I have about women. Once I understood the trigger from an outside perspective it made me realize how absurd it was in the first place.
