    The future will be bright

    Checking-in again, doing good. There´s too many things that need to be done right now anyways as to not waste time on p, so I´m focused on my tasks and life. 😄 If I find more time, I´d like to do more workouts. It would be fun to have an extra chapter on this forum to discuss fitness...

    The future will be bright

    Thanks for the support! I´m building myself up again, rebooting myself and removing the bad influences that society can sometimes have on us. I was watching a movie yesterday that probably clicks with lots of people here and the situation they´re in. It is the well-know Lion King actually. You...

    No porn anymore

    It is normal at this point to have cravings for ´just a little´ this or that, like even doing M without P. But just like you said, it will start a new cycle of dopamine. You want to teach your body that sex is about chemistry with your partner, with dopamine and oxytocine and everything with it...

    The future will be bright

    Thank you, @CB I´ve tried to keep it at a minimum. Times have been very stressy at work, having almost no free time. My girlfriend was slowly sinking into a burnout and in January she finally admitted that to her family and to herself. I was also honest saying that romance was very low when we...

    The future will be bright

    Hey, @CB I had a relapse being alone at home. But I´m slowly working on rebuilding good habits and restarting again here. I hope to be active again here each day.

    The future will be bright

    Day 52 Thank you, @CB ! The home alone weekend has started and for the moment I can control my urges. The last days I´ve been giving motivational speeches to myself in my head and for the moment that seems to work. I can see our inner thoughts portrayed as two men standing face to face. One...

    The future will be bright

    Update three hours later: I´m really happy I deleted that account. The first hour I starting feeling some light panic. I think it feels the same as a smoker throwing away his stuff or a drug addict being locked in a room knowing he won´t be able to consume anymore. Now I´m starting to find peace...

    Chaser Effect

    Very good question. There are many tactics so you´ll find out which tricks work best for you. So your chaser effect is caused by your brain begging for another fake dopamine shot because it just had one and is hungry for another one. First of all, know that the chaser effect is temporary. Tell...

    The future will be bright

    Day 50 I just went to my secret instagram account that I used for pmo in the past. I tried to stay focused mentally and was browsing through the list of everyone I followed, asking myself if any of those accounts made my life really happier. When I reached the end, I went to the setting and...

    The future will be bright

    Day 49 Here we are again, one week further! There have been temptations but I´ve also watched some more videos about meditation, gaining control over temptations and figuring out the reason why people fall into addictions. While working on the good habits, it looks important to also treat the...

    The future will be bright

    Day 43 The cravings are still haunting me like demons. It fluctuates a lot and happens when I have a combination of stress and boredom. It sounds ironic, being bored while being stressed and having to do so many things. It´s when the different tasks are stacking up so high that I feel lost in...

    I admit - I am addicted

    I also think it is very beneficial being here on rebootnation while in a place or time that you would have used for pmo in the past. Our mind needs to link these situations to building yourself and not destroying yourself. It is why the mind also loves different places for eating, sleeping and...

    The future will be bright

    Day 42 I´m getting there! I reached 6 weeks. The cravings are not so much lust-driven, I think, it´s more about the amount of stress I feel and how much I want to calm it down with useless coping skills that I´ve used for years. Today I´m feeling quite good and the cravings are weaker. Opening...

    The future will be bright

    Day 41 Damn man, it´s still difficult tbh. I can say no to P easily, but the craving for P-subs is more difficult. I have to force myself to log in on rebootnation and not go down the wrong path by willpower now. Up till now, it is working... I hope this will get better though. Tomorrow I will...

    The future will be bright

    Day 38 Still on the right path. My mind is still nagging and asking for pmo. If my mind were a person, it would be five year old going "can we have candy, please, can we...omg can we have candy???". It is frustrating to keep saying no but it is the only way to make him shut up haha. Almost...

    Would someone please address these issues for me?

    You are completely right about the Hollywood part and how porn makes it all so much worse. I´ve never been into the extreme plastic surgery women but when I see them now in real life (because I avoid all this sort of input from internet), I now feel even more sad for them. Just like how boys...

    I´ve had exactly the same dream and reaction some weeks ago haha! It´s your mind letting go of the old habits. Keep going! You´re doing great!

    Would someone please address these issues for me?

    I think it is a very sensitive topic but I think I also understand what STST wanted to say. What your husband did all these years is very wrong, it is not something that should happen in a healthy relationship. Some men here would try to help you see their perspective on the situation, trying to...

    The future will be bright

    Day 36 Having some more stressful days and I can feel my mind begging for pmo to numb the emotions. It´s what I used to do in the past. Numb my mind like a drug addict would do, pulling myself away from reality. But it won´t solve problems, it will only make things worse in the future. It´s...

    Where should I ask a question that might cause some people to relapse?

    Okay, so the original poster hasn´t been online anymore after posting his message. I hope he´ll come back online and start his reboot...
