    Hello friends, I know that due to the lockdown many people have already been under stress. But it has been a more stressful situation for people like me who have started their nofap journey during the lockdown period. It is because I am a student and also I live alone and the rubbish content is just to two touches away. This problem level has become insane because nowadays to keep people at home many p**n websites are providing the premium content at very low price or free. And so whenever we are surfing on the internet there are chances that we might catch up that damn content. Due to 35+ day streak of nofap I have experienced a lot of benefits and confidence but the problem is that I am not able to show my skills to others. I am a social person and I like to be in company of others. But the lockdown has challenged me with multiple difficult situations. I had the best weapon to deal with the urge it was going out and hanging out with friends but it is being diffused by the lockdown. I even want to impress a girl who last time rejected me because she thought I had a lack of confidence. But after the nofap streak, my confidence has been grown exponentially but I fear that being alone will hamper my confidence as well as my streak.
    Please provide me some suggestions to deal with loneliness !!

    If you can keep up your streak do it. However don’t beat yourself up if you break it. Before the lockdown I almost made it a whole month. But so far I haven’t made it a week.

    Hello! I'm sorry you feel a bit down during the quarantine. Hopefully, our answers will help you with your day.

    Firstly, we gotta check that you are socializing. Evolution made it so that we feel bad when we don't talk to people for too long which sucks. But still, if you have a friend, try to start a conversation with any topic you can think of. If you don't have a topic, start with your "social packages" like how's your day, who do you want to be when you grow up or are you depressed. If you don't have the confidence, all you have to do is accept yourself, regardless of your mistakes. Accepting your mistakes may seem counter intuitive but it'll give you the courage to take on the mistakes.

    I think that's enough advice for now. I'm still a teenager but I've learned a lot about how life works from various communities. Hopefully, you can too!

    Besides your techniques, developing a new hobby as well as making yourself too much tired in productivity are my implementations.

    Why are you looking to show your skill to others? What particular skill are you talking about? On a practical level what about using the skill to benefit yourself?

    Try to limit time you spend on your computer. If that isn't an option please download Blocksite. When you download it will automatically block any porn sites. It also allows you to type in words so that if you try to get around it typing in something like "naked" will not open any images or pages. It has helped me tremendously and I encourage you to check it out.

    Lockdown has made me feel empty, and wanting nothing. Everything delayed or cancelled makes me think “don’t worry about it then”, screw it. I just go about my day and exist.

    If you feel so then why don't you utilize your time to do something productive or cultivating a new skill. It can be anything which can benefit you in the future Buddy time is the most precious thing of all so don't let it go waste.
