    Day 2/21. Was tired and had a headache yesterday afternoon and found myself making a few dubious searches, but stopped myself from PMOing. Feel calmer today after deciding to start meditating again. Hope this will be a tool that helps me in my recovery.

    Right, I need to readdress this. Since I have last here I have gone back to the 3 day a couple of times, and the 7, which I have not managed. I KNOW that I have done that one before, which may be a minor factor in not being that motivated. There are obviously other factors!
    Anyway, this challenge represents a proper mile stone for me. 19 days is my longest streak ever! So if I can complete this then I will be super proud. It will mean something. Plus I will hopefully notice the difference in me!

    It is so strange that I can have a day like today where I am super confident that I am over P and really have no interest in it any more, then, out of nowhere, wander in to some kind of trance like autopilot state where I find myself emerged. Then I kind of snap out of it after, regretting it. There is even a little voice in my head telling me to stop! When I am going through the preparations, but I don't listen! That voice needs to get louder and more confident.

    So, today is day 1. Again!

    Day 6 feeling stronger this time, I opened up to a friend about my addiction. He’s a good dude and understands the struggle. It’s amazing how just telling someone about it can give you so much strength.

    Before today 19 days was the longest time I managed to keep away from PM. This time I decided to open up to my wife and to a friend about my struggle with porn and masturbation and how I felt that it was affecting my life and keeping me from being a productive and happy human being. He is a great guy and was very supportive and understanding. After talking about it I felt that the urges to keep coming back to pornography are no longer as strong as they were the other times I tried to fight them by myself.

    From this experience I perceived that porn (and masturbating to it) is a habit/addiction that grows in the dark, it gets stronger in the secrecy and it can consume you and rule over you if you are too ashamed to be real with someone you can trust to support you.

    So, I encourage you to follow the example of "i want to stopplzz" (whom I quote in the end of this post) and myself. Make a list of your friends you trust the more and narrow it down to those that you feel that can be supportive in this time of struggle. Go ahead and talk to at least one guy about it. You'll see that it can give you a new hope and new energy to fight this battle. I believe you can overcome porn, but you don't need to walk this path alone and in secrecy.

    Thank you for the advice :) I have thought about it a little bit, but normally dismiss it. I will give it more serious consideration and see if I can think of someone that will be understanding.
