    Hey everyone. New here, and on day 13 of hardmode. I've read a post on here that if you visualize porn or a girl in a sexy way, even if you're not M or O, it's considered a "mental relapse", and you're inhibiting your progress. Even when I'm just doing my daily routine, I get flashbacks of a girl I had a fling with and she is nude and sexy, another common one is of a porns I had watched. I stop myself from dwelling on these instantly, but they continuously re enter my head.

    I was wondering if you guys have had this problem, and if you have a solution to stop getting these mental flashbacks from popping up? Also wonder if they will simply disappear over time?

    Yes, flashbacks of course. It's pretty difficult to stop them. I would think that mindfulness/meditation would help. In my experience the flashbacks are something that happen unconsciously. I used to get into flashbacks and fantasies of really messed up stuff that would go on for a long time. Now I often wonder what the appeal of those scenarios was.

    Thanks for the reply. What did you do exactly to get rid of them or have them reduced? You said you meditated. Are you talking about in general or just do a quick "this is me breathing" sort of thing when they entered your head?
