    have a nice day
     
  2. Go for a walk, take a cold shower, play with my dog. Clean the house is my personal one - it's never been so bloody clean.

  3. Question your thoughts, be critical of them. Where could those thoughts lead you? You clearly don't want that.

    I often label thoughts as "dangerous" if they could potentially lead to PMO in any way.

    The main point here is, do something about the thought as soon as you notice it.
     
  4. for me its know that urges are temporary and will pass

    Get out of your house or room, away from the temptation. Turn off the TV, computer or put the phone down and step away. Grab some tunes and walk on. If it's late or you live in a sketch part of town, or in the middle of nowhere then grab a good book or heck even make something to eat, do the dishes, do chores. Busy your hands with something else. Talk to someone in your home, or if you're a student knock on a friend's dorm and strike up a chat. Go for a coffee. Etc etc. Such things helped me in the past. Pass it on!

    Distract yourself. I use mainly prayer, meditation, nofap forums going for walks, reading, and doing the dishes etc. There's always something to keep you busy. So be strong.

    You need an internal belief system that just says no to it right out the gate. Something in you needs to say with conviction, "I'm not going to do it, I refuse" and the rest of yourself needs to be in alignment. The only reason it is hard is because one part of yourself is not in alignment with the other part and you are at war with yourself internally due to conflicting beliefs. As you break the false ideas about the behavior down it will become easier to make the right decision.

    This is quite awesome, I'm just starting my journey, there are some things I'll definitely try, since I've tried going cold turkey on my own didn't go well, didn't know about nofap, this has given me new hope, since trying it on my own I've never worked...

    Imho every activity that isn't taking place in front of a screen is good.
    Doing something actually productive is also a great choice, gives you the feeling of accomplishment.
