I was on 28 days clean, then I relapsed. I reset and went 1 day then relapsed again. I’m upset but I’m not going to be down and sit here I’m gonna keep trying. But I’m just curious will these relapses reset all the progress I made?.
It resets a number on the screen, but it doesn't reset all your progress. Think of it this way: your brain was healing for almost a month now while you were clean. You relapsed twice, but that didn't undo all of the healing ... just focus on getting back on track and not losing any more progress. You can do it!
I definitely recommend making a journal here, by the way. It's been a huge help to me in keeping positive momentum going, even though I've had a few relapses.
You’re definitely right. While resetting the number on the screen is depressing
, knowing that I learned from my relapses and how to avoid them next time makes me more motivated. I actually have 2 journals, I have a paper one I keep by my bed and one on my phone for when I do research about nofap. It definitely helps a lot. While 2 relapses are not good I think as long as I don’t go binge porn I will be alright. But thank you I appreciate it.
