    This is my 20th day without PMO. Till now my logic was good enough to help me stay away from P. But I'm gradually losing interest in everything and my mind is refusing to think deeper. Just thinking P will help me to be logical again.

  4. Logic won't help. I mean, it won't hurt, and it's a start. It is a good motivator, but ultimately, when that realization hits you at your very core to stop, that will be the change. I once listed about 50 reasons why porn was bad for me and society. Guess what? I, Mr. Logical, relapsed!
    Look at people who say they can't stop smoking. Or gambling. They are not dumb. Logically, they can tell you all the reasons their addictions are horrible. Something has to switch inside them before they can progress.
    You just hang in there. Build that self-discipline. Stay busy and optimistic. You can do it.

    It’s a habit. If you feel it helps you get on with it. But I and presumably you and most on this forum, feel it’s changed us, or affects us in other aspects of our lives.

    if you feel it’s not good for you, you gotta push thru. Logic isn’t gonna cure those urges, you gotta work on why you feel it helps you, then try and find other ways of filling that void.

    It is my experience.
    The superpowers include confidence and social skills boost.
    But unfortunately the ability to concentrate on mundane tasks at a corporation are reduced.

    Remember how you felt after your last relapse. Also remember how you probably spend so much energy browsing porn that if you redirected it you could have actual sex.

    I find limiting you access to porn helps, use of software programs which restrict access. Another Fapsronaut has introduced me to an app called Pluckeye, opendns and i also found an app call Kurupira which assist. You can set Open Dns on your router at home and all of your devices. It even better if you have someone you trust to manage the installation and set up of these so you can not go change them yourself.

    I also think you have to change the way you think about PMO. Like others have said it is not just about logic, because you can rationalize why to use it also. I am slowly realizing you need to understand why you use it. In general it seems we all have some underlying issue which leads us to porn. For many the world is a cold and lonely place and porn allows us to escape it for a bit and provides significant highs. I think identifying when you are on a low and being in tune with your feelings help. You can reinforce to yourself that PMO is not getting you this time, PMO is not the solution. Think on your feelings and create your plan to get you out of the rut, PMO is not the answer, its only a short lived distraction. Anti PMO has to be a way of life.

    Also be weary of Porn substitutes, these lead you back to porn and can be classified as porn in my opinion. E.g looking at sexy photos on IG, or sexy videos on youtube. These are basically softcore porn and you turn to them because you think there not as bad as the hardcore stuff. It all leads the same place, recognize it for what it is and make good choices everyday.

    I have been coming here when if feel the need to share myself, reading the post of members also helps to keep me in check.
