What is going on with me?!

    Ok so lately I've been having relapse after relapse. I know I can do 30 days because I have done it before. I have no desire for porn, and masturbation is not actively desired. However, where ever I go, whatever I do, I encounter triggers.

    I mean I can be taking a walk and something will get my brain to switch to sex. This will happen multiple times in the course of a day. After a while I start getting mentally tired and thus it gets harder to fight the thoughts. Eventually, I end up fapping.

    This is frustrating the hell out of me because I have no clue what it is that is going on. The triggers I encounter are not even things that I would associate with sex.

    This leaves one option...asking for advice and help. Has anyone had this problem?

    Oh there is one trigger that sort of makes sense and annoys the hell out of me. It is the ads on hulu for Calefornication. Of course you can try to tell hulu not hit you with those adds but they don't actually stop.

    Hey man. As for dealing with the triggers look at the posts in the recent thread titled, "it's not only a personal issue." Myself and a few other guys are helping someone in a similar situation.

    My issue is slightly different. I have a solution for that poster's issue. My issue is that I'll be going along and see something like a bird or something else that is in no way sex related and suddenly my brain is thinking sex. It is like the wires got crossed or something and now everything makes my brain think sex.

    First of all you should use AdBlock with your browser to block the ads on all websites. This can decrease possible trigger incidence.

    Second, to tackle the mind part, maybe you should try some serious meditation. I don't do it myself but lots of people rave about it.
