Does Mind Porn, Push Me Towards Relapse?

Whenever I wake up in the morning, I just stay in my bed for 15 minutes more to think about my sexual desires. For me porn being played in my mind does feel good. It even gives me boner. I know that it is not good for me as it increases the chances of edging or Relapse but I have another question to ask.

Does thinking about these things releases dopamine in brain ?

I have experienced the same as you many times as it is what I do when i overcome the urges whenever I wake up. You need to learn to force yourself to not fall in to that trap. IMO I think it is a good, but hard prosess to think of all the pornographic images and videos you have seen and stored in your brain so that you won’t think of it everyday. The result afterwards, in addition to the NoFap prosess, is that you start to forget a huge part of the pornographic images in your mind and you won’t get aroused by thinking about them anymore.

It becomes harder in the first weeks, you’re in your bed and when you wake up you have the strongest urges than you ever had before. Therefore you must hold your hands away from your trouser and just feel the sensation though your body, because the brain demands to release that high unnatural dopamine level. There are many articles and general discussions on how to beat your urges. I hope this the answer you’re looking for :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes, it does. And it is bad for mind. It will make mind foggy.

Yes; you are 100% right. Sexuals thoughts are pushing you towards a Relapse

The best thing you can do is quickly snap out of it. Its a dangerous territory. If you let your mind make porn for you… it will slowly & slowly push you off the cliff. :dizzy_face:

100% agreed. Stop the thought. Dont let it linger. Today i was at a Baptism. There were alot of attractive women. I kept repeating to myself “I will NOT be a slave to lust”. It really helped. It was almost freeing not to sit there and lust over a woman. Dont be slaves guys. We are stronger than this. In the end its all worth it.
