RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
Great sheet Hank.

As for me, I've been trying to quit for too long now. I need to do something different.

Last night I fapped after watching porn for about 20 minutes. I realized one of my problems is that even when I have good streaks (PR = 45 days), I'm still watching a few minutes of porn here and there throughout the day. Eventually, I watch porn for about 20 minutes and then the temptation is too strong and I say "fuck it," and jerk off. It's terrible.

I think this stems from a need for constant media, kind of like in Roosh's post here. So, during the day, I need my little dopamine "bump," and I watch about five minutes of porn. This ends up adding up to have detrimental effects. When I'm having sex regularly, it doesn't really matter, because my sex drive is getting fed anyway.

However, if I'm not having sex, eventually I'll end up fapping. I haven't had sex since Saturday and I think that's definitely why the porn watching was not avoidable like I usually think it is.

I'm going to try to be more mindful of my actions. Why do I watch porn for 5 minutes while I wake up? While I'm on the toilet? Because it feeds my brain. But if throughout the day I'm constantly thinking, "will this improve me or my life?" I might not relapse.

I need to accept that porn is the problem. Porn causes me to masturbate. I've had weeks where I'm either on vacation, traveling, studying for finals week, or just away from the computer. During these weeks, I don't feel the urge to masturbate.

Anyways, back to Hank's post, I think I might want an accountability partner. I don't have anyone IRL who I can talk to about this, and I'd like to be able to talk it out when I get bad urges. I think it'd also be good to keep each other motivated. If anyone wants to give it a try, PM me and we'll see if we get along well.

Good luck everyone!
