    At 100 days (will change over at 5 est), on my third serious porn quitting attempt. Still have a small burning desire to go back but I can hold off. Currently working on not masturbating. I can't say I feel much better but I know this is the right thing.

    I may have unintentionally quit some time before I joined this site, but I've done it. I don't know fully how, but I'm holding off. Can I beat my record of 10ish months?

    100 Days of No PMO is Great !!!!!!!

    You might find something helpful in my list of tips to help you keep your streak:

    Benefits of No PMO:

    1. No social anxiety; 99% of time relaxed, calm, cool; easier to be sociable. If I do start to get nervous I think, "What do I have to be fearful about?" And I get calm in about 1-2 seconds.
    2. More attention from opposite gender -- without trying
    3. No brain fog; can concentrate easily. Can think clearer under pressure.
    4. Increased motivation to get things done.
    5. More Stamina -- can hang in their longer at work (be tough) and complete projects; can work overtime, while others can't
    6. No fears; high levels of testosterone = strength and don't take bs. (No one has messed with me in 52 days +.)
    7. More time for good/productive things. Not wasting time going to phony porn sites; fapping to pixels; lusting, etc.
    8. Women/men increasingly become less of a priority or need.
    9. Improved Confidence -- (online comment) "porn and masturbation lowers your self-esteem and confidence"
    10. More Respectable -- (online comment) "if you resist the urge to masturbate -- a practice that is generally condemned -- you are likely to feel more respect for yourself; and others will respect you more." We all can quickly tell if a man or woman is fapping ... nervous ... weak … fearful … has shame [trying to hide something] …
    10. Improved Creativity and Resourcefulness

    *Not all days are wonderful. Somedays are so-so ...… many are common... some are difficult due to "flat line"... But who wants to go backwards -- to weakness, shame and disrespecting yourself, etc.?
    Y-o-u can change! Y-o-u are 100% in control. Y-o-u call the shots!


    Tips to Successfully handle Urges or Temporary Temptations:

    #1 Secret = Get Off Your Butt and Go Outside [temptations usually only last 10-20 min] 2- Go on NoFap and make a post; or "like" some posts; or give advice 3- Listen to and Dance to your favorite music (fun and gets rid of excess energy) 4- Exercise, go to gym, go for a walk 5- Go to mall and talk with women (or men for females) 6- Go to store and buy yourself a reward/gift/treat (small daily; medium weekly; large monthly) 7- Do your favorite hobby 8- Call, email or go visit a friend 9- Go walk a wonderful dog "Woof!" 10 - Have a "WHATEVER IT TAKES" attitude or mindset 11- Do a good deed for someone (extra points if they don't know who did it) 12- Take a break; take a nap (remind yourself that you are 100% in control and 100% responsible for your behavior-actions) 13- "All Things Are Possible" 14 - One day at a time 15 - Positive personal hygiene (brush teeth; shower) keeps your self-esteem high.

    A great way to have SUCCESS over urges or temptations is to make a quick LIST OF GOALS and OPTIONS. (Just make a quick list -- you can add to it later.) Then read the GOALS and OPTIONS when you are tempted. (I made a simple list the first week -- now it's a habit -- like a memory.) In a sense, you want to 'hold a knife' to the throat [carotid artery -- side of neck] of your 'feelings.' You are the boss -- you tell them what to do. If your 'feelings' disagree with your goals (No PMO, self respect, power) -- tell your 'feelings' where to go. You can call your list: STUD LIST, SPECIAL FORCES LIST, LIST OF OPTIONS, etc. (whatever works for you.)

    APPLICATION = SUCCESS !!!!!!!

    I've been working on a lot of what you've mentioned, I've seen some improvements in some areas, but not all.
    My porn quitting was prompted by me trying to get a girl this past fall, then she rejected me when I finally told her in January, I held off for some time, did eventually have two relapses, but haven't really gotten myself to go back. I did end up jacking it last night, but it was a worthwhile thing (I guess so long as I only do it, say once a week?)

    My goal right now is clear my mind, and the only way I can see myself doing that is stop masturbating as much as I have.

    Stop masturbating and Orgasming too and you feel much much more benefits.
    Sometimes putting P alone is not enough. Since for Many of us P and M and O are so connected.

    I don't know- I was 17, thinking about it a lot, guess I hyped myself back into it.
