How to deal with urges?

It is my day 21 here.
I started feeling the little urges today. Can anyone please share their tactics and experience how do you deal with urges. How to make these urges weaker and weaker day by day?

How to break the cycle?

Thanks and regards

101 Things To Do Instead Of Looking At P*rn


Say to your mind “Porn is a poison” or “I am better without porn” everytime you get urge. Don’t rely your will power, it makes your last resort to pmo so don’t rely on will power only.


Brother, 21 days is a good achievement, don’t let those urges to bring you down!

You will soon have urges to have real s** and not to do PMO.

And you will realize that doing PMO will not satisfy those urges.

Have you ever count how many times did you brush your teeth?
Have you ever count how many times did you bath?

No? So why are you counting days in Nofap journey?

What happens when you achieved successfully some days?
Suppose my target is 30 days of Nofap or No PMO and when i will achieve 30 days - my mind will influence me that now you have achieved 30 days and nothing left to do more - now relapse.

Mind become heavy in thoughts and we Relapse again.

We should not count days or we should not set goal for No PMO instead we should make a habit.

Do you every set a goal to 30 days of cleaning teeth? What would you do after 30 days of achieving it? would you not clean your teeth after 30? No!!! You will automatically clean because it becomes your habit.

So don’t set goal for 7 days, 30 days 90 days & 365 days instead make a habit.

If you have any question then you can directly message me.

Thanks @HitMo for your valuable words. They are thought provoking.

I do not have any set goals in my NOFAP journey where I would stop. I understand making habits is of utmost importance. I take the count as motivation.

Thanks and regards
