At the end of the day, there are no sneaky rationalizations or anything of that sort, I simply end up saying "fuck it" and do it despite knowing absolutely nothing good will come of it. I go long enough between relapses that it becomes difficult to see how it's effecting me in the short to medium term, even though I know it's pure poison and has to be eliminated for good.
There comes a point when you fully understand how useless, boring and pathetic it is and you realise that you would rather do anything else productive. When that feeling comes it's a getaway ticket.

I'm now at 40 days of not masturbating. I'm definitely going to beat my record of 45 days. When I look back now, I see that I managed to learn new skills, work from home and prepare for the next stage in life and realized jacking it was a waste of time.

It goes beyond useless, boring, and pathetic, porn is a vile poison and watching it is one of the most self destructive things you can do to yourself. There have been studies showing that porn addiction causes identical same neurological changes as heroin and meth.

↑ Additionally, porn and masturbation are mortal sins, where as using heroin and meth are not (someone please correct me if I'm wrong about that).

I don't say that to minimize heroin and meth use. I have talked on the forum about my former drug problem and how it ruined my life. My point is that as bad as drugs are, porn/masturbation is even worse in my opinion because it is automatically a mortal sin and it "satisfies" lust in a disordered way that offends God ("satisfied" is in quotes because masturbation doesn't actually satisfy your lust, it in fact makes you more lustful).

I am glad to say I have over a week with no masturbation and no online sexual stimulation for the first time in a while. Praying to God frequently and spending time outdoors without my computer helped a lot.

I am disgusted when I think of all the times I jerked off or visited dirty websites online.

I found a pretty easy (and free) porn blocker today you guys might like called AdGuard. I was originally browsing privacytools.io to up my privacy game, when I found that this privacy-first DNS provider also offers parental filtering.

Most blockers are annoying and slow down your computer. Even worse, some of them block our beloved Roosh V Forum, claiming that it's adult!

AdGuard does no such thing and only blocks adult content. From the help docs:
"Use these servers to block ads, trackers, phishing and adult websites, and to enforce safe search in your browser."

Set up is easy and can be done within a few minutes of tinkering with your router or computer:

https://adguard.com/en/adguard-dns/overview.html

Once it's live there's no background app, installation, or even bypass password. You'd have to go in and change your DNS settings again to turn it off.

Hmm, nice find. However, it still has the same problem as other blockers: its easily reversible. I think if you do this in conjuction with modifying the /etc/hosts file, changing router config settings, and using a simple browser-based web blocker, it would really add a nice extra layer of protection. Only other step is to basically downgrade to a dumbphone to prevent web access from cell networks.
 
Welcome back, although you cant really leave (not to sound like a cult member). I dont think you can try nofap and revert back unless you feel zero benefits somehow.

Going strong for over a month now without any peeking or edging. I'm much more assertive and confident which is causing some friction at work. I'm not putting my job at risk or anything but it's nice not being a doormat.

EMJ's opening monologue here (first 10 min and it starts around the 4:30 mark) is nothing short of brilliant. Whenever he gives a statement about Christ, Logos, porn, masturbation, slavery to passions etc etc it's as if i've regained a new sense of self worth and have recovered a state of mental wherewithal i've always had but lost touch with, purposefully, and I regain composer over myself.
I know when the urge strikes and the blood starts rushing out of my head and into my... equipment for lack of a better term, my brain shuts off and I go on this binge gazing at women on instagram or facebook always leading to increasingly more profane images. The next thing I know 30 min have gone by, I go wash up and feel disgusted with myself all while telling myself "you can do it next time don't worry". Well I don't want there to be a next time. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired from these shackles i've nonconsensually embraced. Every time I return to this speech I learn something new and different statements speak to me in new ways. If i'm struggling and I need guidance it's encouraging to know this forum and men, good men, like EMJ are out there willing to tell me what I need to hear. I’m not ashamed to say I couldn’t quit PMO on my own. I needed to hear words as if spoken by the Lord Himself such as ... “it’s not your fault, porn is a weapon used by people who hate you, lust darkens the mind, a man is only free if he is moral, a man has many masters as he has vices” and so on. If only I could've heard them sooner.
Hearing genuine words of encouragement from someone who knows and sympathizes your struggles, helps in ways I could never put into words.
God bless Dr. E Michael Jones and if you haven't please watch at least his opening monologue it could save your soul and your life.

51 days as of today.

Started before the lockdown, said shoot, I'm not jerking off during lockdown. So I haven't.

Am running again (without need of a pesky gym) and feeling pretty awesome.

The answer to stop jerking off was really simple.

I wear an Orthodox necklace, so if I try to jerk off I'm reminded of God.
 
Reporting in weekly relapse as I don't know what to make of this kind of happiness. Need a different perspective.

My mind wasn't really into whatever I was doing since morning. I looked up her name on a website. Sad images. Meghan Rain. (Sorry.)

I'm in the AWALT mode then I realize it's my job to keep her satisfied as I heard a mother talking to her young daughter outside.

Ah well, might be a coffee day today haha.

At the risk of jinxing myself, I currently have 15 days. Previously, I had only been able to go 3 or 4 days and sometimes I would fap multiple times a day.

Prayer, taking my faith seriously, and trusting in God made it possible for me to resist lust.

Most of the time, I don't even feel the urge to do it, but when I do, I think about how I would be offending God and I would probably be punished severely if I were to go back to fapping.
