I just peeked at tome triggering content. I didnt’t REALLY get aroused, but the images are still in my mind. Since it’s an issue lots of people seem to have, could you give us your technique to forget/think less about these images that stick to your mind?
Thank you all
Yoga,do pranyam. Try the wim hof method. Don’t try to get rid of those thoughts but rather think about higher things. For example instead of sex think of founding a family a great lineage, the continuations of life, nature, your race etc… Focus on health not on sickness. But it is important to know Sickness in order to avoid it. You get to a point that those thoughts are beneath you. But until then do not engage in them and consider them harmful
Clean your room. It’s important to indulge in some practical activity.
Well that’s actually very common and I have a small advice which may not sound sane but still give it a shot and my advice is - " Get yourself in trouble , Big Trouble . "
Now let me explain to you that how it works .
1st Brain tries to focus on the things which are most impactful on it so getting into a big trouble might help but the trouble should be positive to you , not like challenging someone 2x stronger than you for a boxing match though it might work but some sort of urgency must be their while Meditation and Yoga sounds very good and hopefully they might help but that’s not for you .
I just want to say that if you are meditating to stop your thoughts from coming into your mind then meditation is the worst thing you could do . Infact meditation can cause you to get more of such thoughts because meditation means to focus and not force the mind , Distraction with deliberation will also not help .
The one thing that can help though is to treat yourself differently not your thoughts which is very hard to do but easy to say and think that you understood it , for example - if you always sit at home all the day and have your lunch there then go out to some restaurants of just stop watching tv or videos and start a project of crafting something for limca book of world records .
Summarizing it all will not mean anything because we humans want short and simple answers to everything and even after getting the right answer we won’t be satisfied so just don’t change the way your thoughts are but change the way you live and they will automatically change and yeah this will take time . Be Patient .
@pierretomas18 don’t peek anymore. Live your life and don’t let your mind spend too much time on these images. Time will cause you to forget these images anyways.
You are confused Because your mind is Tricking you here. He is telling you all lies… He is saying DUDE … YOU HAVE BREAKED THE FIRST RULE OF NOFAP… DAMN… YOU HAVE CHEATED YOURSELF… YOUR STREAK IS SHADY NOW… YOU DID A CRIME… YOU MUST FAP NOW… WHATS THE POINT NOW… YOU HAVE ALREADY WATCHED SOME PICS… WHY DONT YOU WATCH SOME MORE…BLAH BLAH…
Your Mind is trying its best to make you Orgasm. He might have win 1st Round of this battle but 2 more rounds are remaining. Pick yourself back up soldier. If you can live 2 more days. You would forget about it. The benefits will definately kick in. Because 90 % of us here will Relapse in this situation. You must become what 10 % people do. They fight back… GET YOUR SHIELD UP SOLDIER… THIS WAR IS NOT OVER YET. MIND WILL YIELD NOT US. WE ARE THE MASTERS. NOT SLAVES… FREEDOM IS OURS TO TAKE… DONT YOU GO DOWN SO EASY… MAKE IT TOUGH FOR HIM… GAVE YOURSELF 2 MORE DAYS… HE MIGHT NOT SURVIVE THE STRIKE OF YOUR SWORD
Then you will Thank the all mighty… because you didnt fall for this petty bitches. You are a lion motherfucker… Stand Up … There is a CHOICE always… Forget and move on with your streak… Never repeat same mistake twice
Watch some hot women in public instead of pixels on your smartphone. You will feel better my friend. We are here for your support. We wont let you fall. Count on us.
If I take my example… I feel , to stay away from masturbation you only need to focus on your job or work or whatever you do for a living. Because, only light can remove the darkness… You were having too much free time, that’s why your mind wandered to many different things and eventually it led to erotic photos, and little by little it will convince you to open porn sites and rest you know it. So, I would say better emmerse yourself completely to the work you do, or if you are not employed then start doing anything that is your passion. Keep a Diary and note down everyday performance before you go to sleep. Keep a timeout date, so that you don’t deviate from your passion. That is what I feel.
Well said soldier!
Very true. It starts with small things!
