Day 12 and 21 total! Still going strong
Day 1 completed. Feeling okay. P urges not too bad, but still have to work really hard not to MO
Day 6/14 done. Had some struggles today when I saw some Youtube thumbmails with hot babes! Decided to get out of the house to take a walk and it was all good 1 hour later.
Time is a special gift! I Can do this, i wont relapse. I am feeling ready and motivated to stop.
Day 13 done! Tomorrow my name's going to be in the hall of fames!

It helps a lot
Had some moderate urges, it started with a random thought "Why I am doing this? It is pointless.." But I did not allow it to spiral from there.
Anyway, I am feeling drained and sleepy, 0 energy.
I am doing well, had a few thoughts of weakness but going strong...
Some times my mind gets the best of me and starts talking myself out of things but I AM STICKING WITH IT!!!
Not the mind, it is your addictive brain! It want's it's fix and it is doing it's best to trick you.
But fuck it! You can live without porn
Hello! Day 1 done. Today I've done a yoga class which was amazing. I've connected with my inner thoughts, and I sensed an eliberation of stress. I suggest you do the same if you can. It will make your mind stronger and you will think positive every day. That's it for today. Tomorrow pilates is the next course I will attend. I wanted to tell you that i feel amazing after 9 days of no PMO. Thank you again and good night! Sorry for my bad English.
Once again... Day 1 over. Today I was quite productive and I'm pretty satisfied with the day. I really want to make it to 14 days but (partly because school started again and bc I relapsed a lot during the last weeks) I kina have a motivation loss and I don't know how to fix this... but I will still go on.
Sorry for my bad English btw :/
Day 1/14 ok (after a first attempt, proven unsuccesful in the 3rd day)
I searched for the book with the title , "You are not your brain" as posted from @2525
I 've found it and I 'll give it a shot. Sounds interesting since our brain functions more over like a computer. If we control the input (senses), we can guarantee about the output (actions).
Checking in day 1 is over and in to number two
Day 8/14. I think of so much activity yesterday, today I've been tired, but alert and most of the time in a good mood. Let's move on!
Did 7 days challenge, relapsed on day 8 , been relapsing since 3 nights. Rebooting. Time to complete this 14 days challenge. Lets go
Day 3 done from this challenge , day 10 in total. Lately I've been somewhat struggling with looking at girls on social media , but as time goes on I get better letting go of these urges and focusing on something productive.
Checking in for Day 2. Woke up in a bad mood, which can often be a trigger, but pushed through it. Keen to apply myself at work now and play some soccer in the evening.
Day 3 of 14 done...it's oddly strange how little I'm finding I need it, it really was just a habit
Day 8 (Total 15) - This is going to be a long post. Bear with me if you think you are spending too much time on this website.
So, it is 5:30 a.m. I woke up one hour ago, could not fall back to sleep again and I am here. Like I wrote earlier, normally I sleep like a log for a minimum of 7 hours. But I am currently dealing with porn withdrawal so it is perfectly fine to wake up in the middle of the night.
However... I am doing the very thing which had lead to me relapse a year ago and to deletion of my account on this forum. I am slowly becoming addicted do this website and getting my dopamine fix here. Replacing one addiction with another.
I really enjoy helping other people, but unfortunately I cannot (at least not until I finish my reboot).
Because, every time I write something I am tempted to see response from other people's. Notifications/alerts system is the worst thing ever invented. It gives you a quick dopamine fix and you are easily hooked to it. I know I can turn it off, but I would still be checking what other people wrote.
There is no much for me too do at this point. I can either keep doing what I am currently doing and inevitably relapse in the future. OR... I can actually change something.
Another thing I have noticed I am doing is that I am slowly allowing my discipline to weaken and I am ending many of my habits (3+ months daily streaks). I did exactly the same thing at the exactly the same time (in my second week of NoPMO) a year ago.
That lead me to more depression and inevitable relapse.
So this too need to change.
Back then I wasn't able to get back on my feet immediately and restart my habits, but I am now!
Now this is not so bad as it seems. It is actually great. It is a wake up call.
I am not the same person like I was a year ago, I am much strong and I can handle much more.
So starting right after this post, you won't see me writing in other threads very often, in fact, I will do my best to not check other threads at all.
Challenge threads and my reboot log are pretty much the only places I should spend my time and write.
I have enough discipline to do just that.
Just finished 7-Challenge and in total my first ever 2 week streak, so it's time to move here and Level Up!
Day 1: In progress...
