    I find that I get a surge of encouragement whenever I started my streaks reading the NoFap manual as opposed to just starting the streak without reading it.

    But despite starting a streak by reading the manual, I felt the momentum gradually declining where I haven't gone beyond 50 days so far.

    So I hope to re-read the manual every month to give me re-booster to my rebooting.

    If there are videos or literature which would help to maintain this momentum then please do share.

    Also, I like to know the experience of other fapstranauts on this. What strategies did you use to maintain the momentum/impetus?

    50 days! Great job! Don’t be hard on yourself! That’s amazing. I lose momentum after 5 days. I’m new here so it’s not like I say that with months and months of trying.

    For me, after a few days I feel like a monkey in a McDonald’s ball pit. I’m bouncing off the walls, I am aroused by a fire hydrant. I find myself justifying a slip in my head. It’s so frustrating.

    I guess I just say this to make sure you are giving yourself credit and grace. Good work man.

    What about reading other stuff that might be relevant? The thing is if a particular type of medicine hasn't been complete in addressing it in spite of your best efforts, you may need to add something else. This can be more general like psych or spirituality and not necessarily on this exact topic.

    Thanks for these encouraging words. I hope to search more content which encourages me and brings out the best in me with respect to fulfilling the ideal of NoFap - complete celibacy in an effortless manner.

    My strategy to keep momentum was believing in all the advantages nofap should give.

    Unfortunately, after 300 days i found out they're mostly bullshit.

    So far I watched the short ones. But eventually I will watch the ones which are in excess of half and hour. I saved all these links to a word document. Will watch them one by one.
