Day 62. Haven't made a 90 day run in a while. I've had regular sex all year so I think I'll make it.

It used to be a more pleasurable experience, but I'm starting to become aware all I'm doing is whacking off to 2D images and not the real thing. I feel increasingly more disconnected from porn. There's too many things lacking from the experience of going Hand Solo.

This is a technique that has definitely helped me.

I suggest everyone, especially those who are just to starting, to log your experiences in a journal or on a forum such as this.

When you end up jerking off, write down what factors were at play. How you felt, time of day, what started you down the road to PMO, how much porn did you look at it, what kind, where did you jerk off, everything. Then, write how you feel afterward and discuss with yourself if you think it's worth it. Do you actually feel better? Or is it a temporary high?

After a while you'll be able to target the exact triggers (for lack of a better term) that cause you to relapse, and then you'll avoid it.

For me, the biggest was being home too much. Now, I try to spend as much time away as I can. I'll go to the gym just to be away, do some cardio and stretching. Need to do work? Coffee shop.

I was also guilty of needing to cum before going to sleep. The best fix was getting my sleep in check, exercising every day to tire myself out, avoiding blue light at night, turning my phone off at a certain time, and generally prepping for sleep better. The reason why I couldn't sleep wasn't because I needed to jack off, but because my sleep routine include masturbation. Once I developed a better sleep routine, I don't even think about it anymore.
