Its not about hiding from negative thoughts. Its about confronting them in a non-sexual way. Once you do that you will feel a mix of emotions, sympathy, sorrow, guilt, a sense of duty, and a sense of injustice. It will be easier to control your mind if you do this and controlling your mind will surely help you with other things in life as well.
Oh and yeah… I noticed that you missed alot of points… Even now you are still missing alot of points… You are probably either reading really fast or not thinking as deeply as you should… You REALLY need to do these two things… VERY important for confronting your negative thoughts without relapsing.
Both of those things kill time. And if you are doing nofap you would think time is your buddy right? wrong… Father Time betrayed you so now you have daddy problems… Why do you think my name is Last Minute Man? To succeed at nofap you must focus on killing every minute. You already told me that you would stay busy in your last message and thats good. But you need to rest otherwise you will exhaust yourself and will relapse. And dont rest with a screen in front of you because that will just lead you to having a relapse… Resting means to just lie down. There is always a risk of relapse. But by thinking about what I told you, you would have more control over your mind.
Just to add to the importance of confronting your thoughts Im going to tell you about an experiment some scientists did.
So some people were brought in and were made intentionally bored. They were given a button and were told that if they pressed the button they would be shocked. They were told to entertain themselves through imagination rather than shocking themselves and 60% of men shocked themselves while only 10% of women shocked themselves.
Shocking, right?(pun intended)
Imagination is nothing but a confrontation of your thoughts. So either those guys had no thoughts at all or they simply had a habit of not confronting them… Because thats the only explaination I have for them performing so much more poorly than the ladies…
so to sum it up for you here:
- feel sympathy towards porn stars/actresses
- stay busy
- learn to confront your thoughts and be mindful of them and control them
- kill time
- read SLOWLY and collect all the points because when you put all the points together they form the big picture.
