HOW DO YOU TO FILL THE VOID
« on: January 27, 2016, 07:34:14 AM »
I think one of the hardest things about rebooting ,is how do you fill the void left by quitting watching porn and masturbating.It free's up a lot of time and energy.it leaves you with a very important decision,do i sit around think about not PMO'ing and spending that time scanning the internet,putting yourself in a position when you are one click away from porn or do i use this extra time and energy to do something productive and worth while. I find that after maybe 4 or 5 days of Nofap,i start to notice a difference in my confidence,energy level,social interaction skills and just general zest for life,so ive been making an effort to get out there and get stuff done and claim back the person i am and was before i started to spend far to much precious time,watching porn and beating myself off. Its making Nofap that bit easier this time and all aspects of my life are now improving .I hope everybody finds a way to fill the void,that will get them back on track.good luck everybody

*Sports
*Learn cooking
*Read interesting books
*Take a walk in the park
*Meditation
*Studying
*Working on something you like
*Learn to play an instrument

These are my personal choices, all of them are healthy habits you can get into your life instead of masturbating.

I'd say get a mission in life, or for your life. A man on a mission do not really have any voids in his life, right?

In my case, I'm building a seriously successful business and I'm going to find the(my) perfect woman. These are seriously high ambitions and they leave no room for PMO.

So figure out who you want to be, what you want to have and what you want to do, and aim ridiculously high.
Then internalize your goals, or ambitions, to the point where they become your identity and you cant live without them.
Read the stories of people like Michael Jordan or Sylvester Stallone and try and figure out what drove them.

I have a crystal clear vision for my life and I'm going to get it.
Of course I'm not Sly or Jordan and even if I fail I will have had a lot of fun and exitement along the way  :)

Chewbacka's suggestions are great, but to make them really powerful make them work towards your ultimate goal.

My first three efforts at no PMO,i messed up by spending too much time on the internet and used to always say to myself,i'll just watch one porn clip but not masturbate,then it would be maybe one more.it always ended up in me saying fuck it and finishing myself off,then feeling bad about it.
This time im trying my best not to go anywhere near porn. Im playing football,hanging out with my friend's alot more and just filling my time away from my computer.still love the internet tho
