Tips for success in nofap

9 posts in this topic

I'm close to two months clean in my nofap journey and I'm planning on going the whole year. and I knew a lot of guys struggling with addiction to masturbation and porn. Hope these tips help you.... 

 

Following are the tips that worked for me.
1. Reduce the frequency
If you are watching porn and masturbating, Do not stop it! Yes, don't stop it. You cannot stop it all of a sudden. Because trying to stop suddenly will not only does not work for sure but also makes you feel hopeless thinking that it is impossible to stop. It makes you feel even more depressed. To stop something like that suddenly, you need high energy to overcome the compulsive force or energy which is making you to watch porn and masturbate. Obviously for such a state you are in, you do not have such energy currently to counter act that compulsive force and energy. So recovery does not work that way.
Tip : Let's say you are watching porn and masturbating let's say, daily. If you do it today skip tomorrow and Do it day after tomorrow. Again following day skip it.. and repeat this pattern for few days. After you become stable enough for some days skip for two days and do it the following day and repeat the new pattern. In this way you reduce the frequency of falling or increase the gap very slowly. You can come to a point where you will be okay fapping once in a month. In this process you gain sufficient energy where your swapping frequency can become as low as once in a year. After you develop enough stability rest is your wish.
2. Keep yourself busy all the time
The mood to fap comes mostly when one is alone and feeling bored or not having any work to do. So keep yourself busy. Intentionally get yourself involved in things which can keep you busy all the time.
Tip: Going out, travelling, talking to friends over phone etc...
3. Exercise or sport:
I don't think physical fitness and mental fitness are different. Both are same. If you are fit physically then you are fit mentally as well.
When one is fit physically its very rare that one gets addicted to fapping. As said sound body is a sound mind. You would not get such thoughts or urges. Even if one gets they are very minimal. So excercising is a good thing to do.

Cheers 

 


all that matters is the quality of the present moment. Because that's all there is to reality. A present Moment 😇

This is where I failed. I know it's not an excuse, but I tested positive for Covid, and was forced to stay inside, and not talk to anyone in the house. Shit got pretty hard eventually - literaly?

Exercise or Sport is better especially a heavy lifting workout but the problem is that you feel like a horny bull again after post-workout but this horniness still feels better than sedentary horniness.

I'll install/pay for porn blockers, and block/get rid off any stuff that could potentially trigger me.

Very good explanation, i dont think also in that idea of cold quit, it put to much pressure and when it fails one usually tends to go back worse than before.
