    Partly, I think, it's a natural thing for a man to be drawn to attractive women. Our culture has shaped our ideas of what's attractive and what isn't; there's a lot that we can talk about this cultural indoctrination regarding beauty. I don't see it as bad to look at and admire an attractive woman, but stop and think why you do. Are you're admiring the beauty, the way all her features are put together in symmetry, or are you lusting after her as an object for sexual possession?

    One of the challenges of our addiction (and BTW, according to clinical diagnoses, porn and sex addictions are not yet recognized in the DSM, see https://www.addiction.com/expert-blogs/sex-addiction-dsm-5-2/) is that a healthy active sex life is a natural thing. As compared to substance abuse, porn and sex addictions are not a serious threat to health; other than a sore dick and the potential for PIED, you can't die from obsessively jerking off! (Hey guys, we need to laugh at ourselves once in a while!)

    So, men and women are designed to be drawn together physically, in a healthy natural way. To stop looking is near impossible. Again, it depends why you're looking and what happens after you do? Is it "WOW! She's hot!" and move on to other things? Or, is the image of a young woman stuck in your mind and you MO to the image? If it's the latter, I caution you, cause I've been there, done that.

    Story... In college I lived in a house with three other people, one a striking red-hair. I was drawn to her, flirted with her, we even had a make out session (note, a single make out session that left me with blue balls). But she wasn't interested in going further and made that clear. I didn't push anything, but obsessively MO'd to thoughts of her. MESSED ME UP! Sent me to my first series of counseling sessions to work through the emotional shit.

    So, again, I caution you. Ask yourself why, and if it doesn't feel right, stop looking. Happens again? Repeat, why, wrong, stop! Rebooting and recovery is a large part mindfulness. We can't be fully mindful 100% of the time, but diligence in the beginning is critical to a successful streak and ultimately finding our lives again.

    It can be done, but it is difficult as hell. Currently Im avoiding P subs, so everytime I ran into pictures/videos on Facebook/YouTube that I shouldnt ve looking at, I close everything and walk away. I do something similar with women. When I see a beautiful girl what I do is to look away instantly and dont look back. I mean, looking and being attracted to women is natural, but makes NoFap really difficult

    When I'm outside I'm usually lost in my thoughts, I do check out girls, but even if they are really hot it still only takes a bit until I go back to my thoughts. As to when I'm talking to a pretty girl, if the conversation is good it will absorb me and I won't really notice anything else. I suppose it all comes to habits (just like everything else, it seems), self-discipline and being busy with something else.

    since i have started my journey, i have realized that my porn addiction has caused me to objectify women unknowingly. once i made this connection, looking at "hot" girls wasnt an issue after that. its a state of mind. it might not be easy to change, but it is possible. men are wired to always want to reproduce. but you can change that wiring, and if you do, you'll find that this journey will be a lot easier for you, and you will rid yourself of one of your triggers.

    I sometimes see a woman and just go wow she is really hot. You know just to look at her. I don't remember them when I have MO in the past. Usually when I MO its to P.

    I have the same. Wow is she hot. I do check her out. Discreet not creepy. Girls let you check them out if you don’t creep and if you don’t stare. But notice. Some are so hot...it’s a serious trigger. But I can maintain...

    For me too this is sometimes very challenging. I have 58 days now, but I'm sure seeing a hot girl pass by will cause dangerous triggers and I'll have to be mindful.

    I often wonder what the borderline is between the natural, allowed "admiring" and "sexually objectifying" a hot girl as she passes by? I mean, when I see a girl pass by, I would be lying if I say that I don't feel any clear desire to do her. I guess I am "objectifying" at that point.

    I guess I'm striving for the point where I do not do just one but two things when a hot girl passes by, that is, first admire her very much sexually, but then second, turn away soon enough, being a centered, mindful man, knowing you should not keep staring like a fool as if you've never seen a hot woman before. That latter mindfulness is just not so much present in my addicted mind. I hope to feel progress in this, I think I already am noticing some positive direction.

    For me it is to allow the full reaction finding her hot. Feeling the attraction of that body even feeling aroused by it and controlling it. Being the master of that energy. Then it can shift into a really great feel and freedom. But that’s my way

    I just started, it's been 4 days. Few hours back I was having dinner, there were a super hot woman on a table in front of me. Whenever I looked at her my mind started fantasizing about her. I just kept on ignoring the thoughts and started talking with my friends. It's really hard to ignore these things, just don't stay stuck. Best of luck.

    This might sounds like a bad advice, but this is my method.

    I didn't ignore it or replace it with another tought or something like that, because It seems impossible for me at first. The needs to checking out girls deteriorated anyway after no PMO for several days.

    I just roll with it, I mean we're naturally attracted to other human being.

    For me, the main reason of rebooting is to rewire and heal our subsconcious mind from PMO and not to get rid of our human-instinct.
