    I noticed when I lie down in bed at night, I get urges like something fierce. I used to wank myself to sleep and it was the best part of my day. Now I know better...

    Mornings? Not that challenging, although morning wood is tempting. I'm usually too groggy to even lift my arms.

    Boredom? It can strike at any moment. I cannot stress enough that you get some hobbies. I'm in a complicated situation in my life right now where I don't have any hobbies. Makes sitting in a studio apartment kind of a drag at times because there's nothing better to do that to think about looking at porn. I thank the Internet in part for keeping me equally distracted from browsing those sites. Recently I have been attempting Monk Mode but eeshh Youtube ain't good for Monk Mode. I've stopped browsing Quora as well because they just spam endless streams of hot models literally all day.

    Afternoons and late at night. Very vulnerable at those moments.

    I'm the same I tend to have the urges when I'm in bed which is not ideal when you're trying to fall asleep...

    Usually afternoon, or when I get home from work. Straight after I get out the shower is tough, so I get dressed quickly. There's a lull in the day, works done, now what?

    Your body isn’t tired. If it was sleeping would be much easier. You can do a lot more than you realize.

    Late night for me, almost all relapses happen in my bed,

    I think the issue is it's ingrained in us as well.
    For me all my PMO happened in my bed when I was very addicted

    I have always enjoyed the early morning PMO. It was the start of my day.
    Currently, I am ready to scream the urges are so bad. Seriously scream! But I am determined to stay the course.
    However, I am accomplishing
    so much; rebuilding my motorcycle engine, cleaning the house, repairing everything in sight, including my life.
    I never realized how much time I wasted PMOing. I guess I'd rather be addicted[metaphorically speaking] to getting things done,
    than porn.

    It was always either right when I go to bed late at night or as soon as I wake up in the morning. Usually anytime I was laying in bed just mindlessly scrolling.

    Morning are the worst for me, I always have sexual thoughts when I wake up. I dont know why it's in the morning but it is something I have noticed.

    I've stopped edging. A lot have said edging is like porn, messes with dopamine. I am almost at 90 days now but during this time I have edged at least 10 times. Stopped doing that last week and strangely I feel my urges are going down even more than they were. Also stopped looking at pictures of models online, maybe that helped. Youtube isn't so bad if you don't peek at videos with half naked women, they'll show up less and less in your feed. So now, I rarely if ever get tempted because I have simply cut that content from my Internet browsing.

    Edging is likely worse than a relapse. Anything that is mimicking your old behavior is detrimental to the reboot process. Even scrolling through instagram looking at girls is re-enforcing those same pathways in your brain as searching for P
