It is day 7 of nofap and you are going well and strong to reach the milestone of 90 days, but then you picked up your phone and started to scroll down your Instagram feed, suddenly a picture of a hot model popped up and you started to zoom that picture, now you wanna see some more pictures of that girl, and now your mind wants something else, something crazy and then you opened a website that you shouldn’t open and now you are producing a distinct sound, Fap! Fap! Fap!.
This is your story, right? don’t worry we all share the same story, we all relapse, and we all fail but how strong you fight back after the defeat, decides your destiny.
You are lucky if you have completed the nofap challenge of 90 days in the first go because it is nearly impossible to achieve that on the first try.
It is quite common for addicts to relapse at least once during rehabilitation and some fall off the wagon numerous times before getting clean for the last time. Knowing what triggers relapse is the first action toward prevention.
Tricks & Tips To Stop Relapsing
These are some tips that helped me a lot to complete the nofap challenge and I found that these tricks really work. I have met people who are on the nofap journey and using these tips or tricks to escape from relapsing.
1:- Take A Cold Shower
A cold shower Affects the mind and helps to focus on other things rather than jerking off.
If you are facing a hard time and you are about to fall, try a cold shower, it will help you to escape from relapsing.
Cold showers can provide incredible benefits to the body and mind as well.

Some Benefits of a cold shower
- More energy.
- No brain fog.
- It improves social interactions.
- Positivity increases.
- More eye contact.
- Less shyness.
- It enhances the mood.
- It helps skin and hair.
Is cold shower good for anxiety?
Cold shower therapy is an old Ayurvedic remedy that has many health benefits such as healing anxiety and depression, increasing circulation, and toning skin. The use of coldness as a ‘good stressor’ on the body can support to trigger some helpful responses within the human body(1).
2:- Listen To Your Favorite Songs
Music can change your mood, listening to particularly sad or happy music can even change the way we see the world, according to a new study. Music and mood are closely interrelated.
listening to a sad or happy song on the television or radio can make you feel more sad or happy.
Whenever I feel like I will relapse, I start to listen to my favorite artists. Music plays with our mind and takes us to a different place of joy and happiness which helps us to fight the addiction, fapping.
Some benefits of listening to music
- Increases Happiness.
- Improves Performance in Running.
- Decreases Stress While Increasing Overall Health.
- Improves Sleep.
- Reduces Depression.
- Helps You Eat Less.
- Elevates Your Mood While Driving.
- Strengthens Learning And Memory.
3:- Don’t Count Days
We all wanna see progress, how far we have come in this journey but believe me guys it’s the biggest mistake that you can do because counting days leads to relapse and it is the biggest reason why most people relapse.
People start to think that oh my god, I failed in just 7 days or 5 days, just don’t do this cause it really discourages you and you start to think that it is impossible.
Now, what you can do instead, just write down the date from which you have started the nofap journey and the date when 90 days will finish and just forget about it.
I have used this strategy and it really works. One more thing, don’t compare your progress with others.

4:- Play Sports
Playing sports makes you physically and mentally strong, and distracts your mind from PMO
It also improves your mood.
Whenever you are feeling low and about to relapse just call your friends and invite them to play football, basketball, tennis, table tennis, etc.
List Of Benefits
- Better Sleep.
- A Strong Heart.
- New Connections.
- Improved Lung Function.
- Increased Confidence.
- Reduces Stress.
- Improve Mental Health.
5:- Meditation & Yoga
Doing these kinds of activities provides you with spiritual energy and mental stability which is essential if you really wanna stop fapping.
Those kinds of videos destroy our thinking and our thoughts on others, Doing yoga and meditation for only 10 minutes a day makes you calm and helps to rethink before fapping again.
All the points which I am discussing are done by me to always going on and on on the nofap journey.
Practicing yoga improves balance, endurance, flexibility, and strength, while meditation helps keep the mind sharp, relieves stress and anxiety, and can strengthen your immune system.
6:- Go Join Gym
Fapping excessively or way too much makes you physically weaker. When we ejaculate, we lose essential minerals from our body which makes our muscles and immune system weaker.
When you will join the gym, your mind will automatically shift on gaining some muscles not fapping and wasting time.

7:- Unfollow Models
The models which you are following for a very long time, now it’s time to unfollow them.
if you are addicted to excessive fapping then these pictures will act as a trigger on the behalfs of those problems. You have to understand that those people only show their best, they don’t show their sad or bad side.
This is seriously affecting your focus, your brain, and your goals.
It’s changing you into phone addicts, even when you have work to do, when you have somebody around you talking to you, you are glued to the phone and the worst part is you don’t consider yourself as a phone addict
So, prioritize in your mind that work comes first.
