    Didn't know her before you said - now I do. Just looked at her fully clothed on Google Images (strict safe search). She' very nice.

    However, we really should stop naming pornstars on this thread as I remember last time a year ago when I failed in another period, somebody told me about a pornstar and as I didn't know that pornstar before, I felt that I was a fap virgin in that respect and so just had to tug to her, as I hadn't before. So other beginners could fall into this trap this time around (i.e. I haven't tugged to this pornstar before, I might as well now as it's "new" to my tugging experience).

    So, lay off naming pornstars please.

    Anyway, when are you restarting (that is, if you are? :hmmmm2:)?

    haha sorry mate. I'm back and im more focused then ever!

    Mehh. I'm not enjoying this and it's only been 2.5 days since I last masturbated and I only officially started not doing it on purpose yesterday. Feels like I want it even more now I've decided I'm not doing it.

    I don't know if it's because I'm a woman but I get really irritable and moody if I don't have some 'me time', does anyone else feel like this?

    Anyone got any tips? I am committed to this because I want to prove to myself that I've got enough self control but at the same time, orgasms :coma:

    Must. stay. strong.
    The best way is to convince yourself that you're a non-masturbator, which is good if you can, but in the meanwhile I'd say it's to realise that you're the master of your actions, not your primal instincts, so that no matter how much it feels that you're tempted, it's all irrelevant, because either way you won't do it.

    Well you need to make it fully clear to yourself that this essay has to be done as it's due into tomorrow - you need to take a no-nonsense approach, no dilly-dallying around. Get down and knuckle down to it.

    The urge is only temporary - do not let it dissuade you.

    Tbf I would masturbate alot if I was a girl with a vibrator :lol:

    Go for a run, talk to your bf and ask him to do the business.

    My sex drive is pretty high too. I'm not a full on 25 times a week addict you see on channel 4 documentaries but I used to have sneaky ones in my hour breaks from lectures. I go home have a quickie and go back to lectures. I'm on day 5 now, yesterday I almost relapsed.
    Im actually at work at the moment so it's not like I can do it anyway, but I'm gonna be home alone later! Bf isn't around this week either, he's away with work but I'm not gonna crack.

    Running is a good idea, at least that will tire me out but I also seem to relax more when I'm tired, and when I relax I get horny. You sound similar to me, I'm not an addict by any means but I do enjoy sex & masturbation so I know this is going to be difficult. I'm hoping the longer I go, the easier it will get though?

    Well done on not relapsing, was it anything in particular that got you tempted?

    Thanks, you're totally right. I'm a competitive person anyway so I know the longer I go, the more 'smug' I'll feel that I haven't caved in. I just need to keep reminding myself that I'm the master of my actions.

    How long have you been doing this? Or should I say, not doing it.

    Reading your reply it reminded me of a poem which gives a similar message: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/invictus/

    I've been free since the 3rd, so this is my 6th day.

    Becoming a kind of smug elitist is something I actually want to avoid with this.

    Good on ya if you can last this week. After at least you can get those urges sorted when he comes back.

    I think there'll be a point where you'll be super horny(happened when I went 10 days without it in december) but after that you get used to it I think. You get into a routine, that's how everyone stops things like this e.g. the casual smoker who has a cig a day or two.

    It happened so fast. One minute I was revising, next minute I was on brazzers... I kinda just had a **** it moment then sense came to me.

    Yes, I know - and what's more is that our fame has reached beyond TSR, as far as reddit and beyond... :moon:

    I made a post in the nofap subreddit. I can't access reddit at work but RichyFrench should be able to link it.

    The more often you have orgasms, the weaker they'll be, as your brain desensitizes to dopamine. If you don't fap, and you wait until your boyfriend gets back, the sex, but more specifically the orgasm, will be mindblowing. One of the main reasons to refrain from self-love is to increase your enjoyment of being with your partner. Your urges will build up and it'll be so much more intense when he gets back. Don't focus on a measly orgasm which you can give yourself, focus on the 9.8 magnitude ground-shaking orgasm that you can have with your boyfriend if you're willing to use a bit of willpower.

    I think 'smug' was probably the wrong word for me to use, I just meant I would be pleased with myself for lasting X amount of time.

    Divert your thoughts away from anything sexual, focus on your breathing. Inhale slowly through the nose, and out through the mouth. Continue to do that to relax yourself as it will get rid of any sexual energy that may be building through sexual thoughts. The urge will pass pretty quickly.

    Once you notice the urge is gone, you'll start to realise that you can do it. You are able to control yourself when you put your mind to it. It's empowering.

    If the danger of achieving things is that you will become smug, I would rather have become smug than miss out on being the best person I could've been (but I'm kind of hoping the best person I can be doesn't include smugness.)
