Those people who relapsed on day 1 or 2 or before 7 in this challenge are still in this challenge. Don’t worry, just get out of the chaser effect, make your Streak Day 7 and then your relapse will count as a relapse.
And do check in when you can as check in will greatly benefit you as a reminder of your goal.
I think now I am ready to quit movies, seasons and animes. My 99% relapses occur due to it. First I start watching clean movies. It’s easy to control. Then I search for entertainment and it comes with nude scenes on the side. I think I can guard my eyes. I do guard but 0.5 seconds of Triggers happening over and over again somehow wake up the dopamine craving monster that I had put to sleep. A few days later, I relapse.
So to quit PMO, I need to quit watching movies, seasons and animes. I also need to start studying.
For the rest of the 5 rules,
I meditated 10 mins.
I exercised 10 mins.
I did not use any social media.
If I just guard my eyes and watch my thoughts, I will be able to break the initial chains.
we all have a same pattern so I think we should First Fix the habit of watching [email protected] (also called as peeking in nofap)
There is a dedicated thread was available only to reduce peeking.(discourage to peek regularly)
I could not stop myself from watching clean animes and clean movies. The problem is I am bored and need some fun thing to do. Maybe I should increase the amount of studying I do and decrease the screen time to normal where it is not considered binge watching anime.
To replace movies and animes, can anyone suggest a good fun activity?
That’s good… I’ll try that.
But I want something to look forward to… Like a treat in a study break… To replace watching episodes and movies.
Maybe everything is the same… To replace entertainment means to find a new source of high DOPAMINE. Maybe staying busy will automatically bring joy in mundane tasks. Like walking to catch fresh air. Or talking to family and friends.
Maybe I should not be worried. And let things take their course.
