    What your going through is pretty common man, I can totally relate with all you're saying. The porn sites definitely have a negative effect on your progress wether or not you do MO. It will flood your brain with urges and dopamine that'll keep you craving more. Relax when you can try to walk in the woods and like bigft said use the panic button. In the first sentence you said you remember seeing positive effects from Nofap in the past. Use that memory to push yourself and you can get through the evidence is more like personal experience rather than scientific.

    You need to reset your counter. It is supposed to record how long you have avoided porn!

    is the counter always for porn? isn't it different for each person? I thought everyone had their own goals and limits on what qualifys for a reset.

    Your counter says that it is the number of days without Porn; Masturbation; Orgasm.

    i dont know why my counter says that. i am doing 16 days without fapping or orgasms now. the porn thing for me isnt that extreme that i would set a counter for it. i mean, whenever you watch a music video on spinnin records you have soft-porn, so that just doesnt count for me. but i avoid it as good as possible

    otherwise, doing good so far, i just had a strong urge to watch porn and fap but i resisted and decided to write something here in my thread instead of doing so.

    effects i notice so far:

    - EXTREMELY.. (and by extremely i mean it!) horny all the time when i interact with girls. i literally am at a stage where i picture every female human being naked in my weird phantasies when i just normally talk to them. And i have mixed feelings. I think its quite funny and i feel like a man having that drive, but on the other side it depresses me, as my sex life atm isnt too fulfilled.
    - Dont know if its due to that, but yes, i feel more self conscious lately.

    However, there is nothing so far where i could jump up and say "OMFG nofap changed my life so hard". Im not even sure if the above is because of nofap.

    whatever

    thx for reading

    have a wonderful day

    First of all you have to convince yourself that PMO gives the safe addiction of drugs, alcool, slot machines and videogames. That's to say, your dopamine levels are compromised because of this addiction, and if you stop PMOing your brain initially starts to remind you that you need that kind of pleasure. Obviously this ain't true because now your brain has to be recovered and needs to start the so called "rebboting" therapy.
    Then, when you start thinking that Nofap is useless, try to think this way: "my dear brain: maybe you're right, but anyway I would like to achieve this chance even if it doesn't make sense. Infact, if i doesn't really work, nothing's gonna change; but on the contrary, if it's gonna work, everything is such a gain of yours. So this is anyway something you gained: from a certain point of view you get rid of a slavery, in order to become a better man. Otherwise, on the other hand, you will taste all the benefits of this path.

    Long term No PMO demands radical lifestyle change or pressure & built up stress will break you sooner or later. We need to (re)learn how to live balanced life, so we become immune to outer stress factors to some extent. Remember PMO is a way of escapism, our little dark corner we run to, when we can't cope with what life throws at us. We must develop inner strength to face our fears and pain head on. It's very hard work, but well worth it... Here are some suggestions: https://buffer.com/resources/10-things-to-stop-doing-to-yourself-to-be-happier-backed-by-science

    It's good for every aspect of your life to have some control even around woamn the urges are easy to keep in check when you've gotten enough practice. Just like training yourself to get horny when you see a curvy shape you can train yourself to remain calm and collected brothas. All good things take time.

    how do you guys handle music videos and such which contain sexual stuff? just always click away immediately? or can you actually manage to watch such stuff neutrally (without getting triggered by it?)
