    Hiya Fap,
    Wow you got your mojo back quickly!
    It probably feels shitty to relapse but from an outside objective point of view, you didn't lose a single step in this race.
    And I'm not just saying that to make you feel good. You got some real insight from relapse.
    I never know if I should inject a bit of humor and risk hurting feelings (which I never want)...
    On the lighter side, it would be really fun to read a journal of your exploits of being shot down (and hopefully succeeding) by Italian women. It might even be fun eventually for you to guage their reaction by their body language, and yours, before you utter one syllable. I'm sure the right hand gesturing is key in the Italian pick-up technique. (lol)

    Ok, so I've spent the last hour or so reading through your entire post. A couple of suggestions, though I'm not sure if you'll find them useful given I'm not that much into the whole reboot, so I may be unaware of the actual things you went through:

    1. MO without P. It is hard, but can definitely be done.
    2. May be try to quit other addiction - this may be a double edged sword. I'm trying this right now. I'm addicted to nicotine and obviously porn. I've tried to quit smoking over the last couple of days. I've had relapses with nicotine, but every nicotine relapse is teaching me something that I incorporate in my battle against PMO. I think out of all the things, quitting iPod might be easiest, and if you think about it most productive. Why you ask? Think about how many women or people have not started convos with you thinking that you're lost in your music world. Might be different for you, but drawing from my own experience, I don't think any one has started to a conversation with me to ask about what kind of music I was listening to.

    Just some thoughts. Hope it helps. Good luck to you... and me!
     
  3. Hola Amigos,

    I have been cowering away these last few weeks, because well, i fell off the bandwagon - i mean i REALLY fell off the wagon - and have been to pussy to confront it (yes PMO). After the 41 Days of NoFap, i just didn't have the energy or courage inside me to carry on; it was just too much.

    BUT

    Since then, I have been putting in order my social life, which i think is key to kicking this stupid habit, because face it, you can't go around with colossal sized balls and have no place to vent it - that's a sexual hydrogen bomb just waiting to explode (pardon the pun). I have also had another useful business idea which i have been working on, so at least here i don't feel as helpless and inane as i did before.

    Overall, despite PMO, i haven't felt any crappiness - no regret/depression/social anxiety to speak of; in fact sanity wise i have been more even keeled than i was during no-fap, though i realize that's just the dopamine talking. This is what always makes it difficult to get on the bandwagon - it has to be a real choice and state of mind , not just a whimsical idea you dream up in the heat of the moment, because once into the massive void of NoFap, Dios Mio man, you have to have your wits and focus about you.

    Anyway my NoFap Bros - gettingthere, Harry, fullset et al, I salute you guys and your stamina. God Speed You All man; when i am mentally and psychologically ready again, I'll try to rejoin you all on the journey to freedom.

    Hiya Fap,

    I didn't understand some of your last post. Are you saying you aren't counting anymore?

    In my mind you should still count because then at least you know how much you PMO.

    That way, when you feel like getting back on the band wagon, you can say today is Day 1....
    With you all the way,

    Gettingthere

    Dont put the reboot off until you're "ready" again. Its important to keep sharing your successes and slips to become accountable. The addiction wants you to not to bother thinking about it. Treat this bingeing period as a setback and a slip, and start again.

    That's what I've done. Even though I'm seriously addicted. I'm only on Day 3 and I already feel better again, and proud of myself!

    Keep going!

    Its not the fapping to porn that I have a problem with anymore. I've kicked the porn demons down the drain...Its just the MO now, that is the hardest thing for me to shake. I can go a month with no orgasm but can't seem to go any longer. Its soo frustrating! :mad: The fact that I fap maybe once a month only and without porn is that still a major flaw in my sexual healing?? :( How much of a set back is that really?

    Nobody could say for sure, but I would guess if you truly went 6 months without any pornography and only masturbated once a month, you would probably reboot, especially if you did no fantasy during masturbation.

    Certainly that would be a reboot from PMO.
