    Going out with friends and being more social has really worked for me.

    Honestly, I'm a sheer willpower type of person ... Just like to be around people who understand. Beat cam model addiction through willpower, beat cannabis addiction through willpower, will beat pmo through willpower.

  8. I think willpower is ultimately what it comes down to. If you want to relapse, you're going to find a way to do it. It's all about saying no to PMO, fundamentally.

    Willpower is necessary, but I think a key requirement to developing that willpower is knowing you have support and believing in yourself that you WILL beat it. Always tell yourself you will. It's not a question of if, there's no doubt that you will, it's a matter of when. I think the support is necessary as a first step though. The loneliness is inevitably what drove most of us to this addiction.

    And remember HALT. Hunger, anger, loneliness, tiredness, are all your enemies in the fight against addiction. Focus on resolving these and you will quiet cravings much better.

    Well I think that will power is key, but you have to understand that it's a muscle. You have to train your willpower. Meditation is incredibly useful, as it trains your willpower, maintains you relaxed and allows you to deal with stress better. And hell, we all know how stressful rebooting can get.

    Just getting started is hard. For me it took multiple times of realizing I felt horrible afterwards, and making a point to capture those emotions, even writing them down, so that the end result could be in my mind before I started to relapse. Once I got started for me it's about finding a routine and then building on it. Starting with saying im going to get out of bed right away, once that becomes natural, add to it; ie. I wont turn on my phone until im dressed, i won't stay in my pj's once im out of bed. Form new healthy habits to get you going in the right direction

    In my 20 day streak i just felt weightless cause of getting it off my chest and the sex was amazing. A few shorties but it was still great. Rebooting again after some bad days. Ran this morning real hard, just did the gym, focusing on every single positive thing i can. Also if I think about the porn i just think of the negatives about it and literally say “no”, kinda weird i know hahah. I think of stupid things to motivate me, a longer beard, better performance in the gym and the sack. Look better. And most important to me, a clean conscience.

    Making myself more busy. Finding new activities to engage in such as, exercising, joining clubs, and reading. These things have drastically decreased the amount of time I would spend alone in the past.
