Why did I relapse?
It all started with a thought.
Then came the porn images.
Then a few hours past and I couldn’t hold on anymore and finished what I started.
At least, I didn’t relapse as soon as I woke up. I may have lost but I still did something else at first.
Yup… i relapsed again.
At least i now usually do it once every 2 days which is something for me that i used to do it 2 times a day. Then i reduced it to 1 time a day. Now i manage to do it every 2. I don’t give up…
If you want to stop PMO, you must know first how your brain is affected by details you never heard before:
Primitive circuits in the brain govern emotions, drives, impulses, and subconscious decision-making. They do their jobs so efficiently that evolution hasn’t seen the need to change them much since before humans were humans. The desire and motivation to pursue sex arises from a neurochemical called “Dopamine”. Dopamine amps up the centerpiece of the primitive part of the brain known as “The reward circuitry”. It’s where you experience cravings and pleasure and where you get addicted.
This ancient reward circuitry compels you to do things that further tour survival and pass on your genes. At the top of our human reward list are:
These are called “natural reinforces” as contrasted with addictive chemicals ( which can hijack the same circuitry ).
The evolutionary purpose of Dopamine is to motivate you to do what serves your genes. The bigger the squirt, the more you want something. No Dopamine? and you just ignore it.
Although Dopamine is sometimes referred to as the “pleasure molecule”, It’s actually about seeking and searching for pleasure, not pleasure Itself. Thus, Dopamine rises with anticipation. It’s your motivation and drives to pursue potential pleasure or long-term goals.
The pleasure of climax appears to rise from opioids. So think of Dopamine as wanting and opioids as liking. As psychologist Susan Weinshenk explained: " Dopamine causes us to want, desire, seek out and search. Yet, the Dopamine system is stronger than the opioid system. We seek more than we satisfy." Seeking is more likely to keep us alive than sitting around in a satisfied stupor.

Hi there @JayJay17
People with a streak less than 10 days are welcome to check in with their current streak.
People with a streak more than 10 days must check at first at day 1.
The first goal is to become a Member by reaching 10 clean days.
It is recommended to check in daily but if you can’t due to some personal reasons the maximum duration is 2 weeks.
Don’t forget to edit the “topic”/ “streak board” every time your streak changes
