Just shattered (Relapse) by a failure in a challenge
Starting again,this time a 30 day challenge for the first time.
Will try to be sincere for the sake of my own reboot and recovery.
Today, I've MO'ed. I feel dissappointed that I have been set back from my ultimate goal, but not ashamed. It was as a result of really high testosterone levels. In the last 22 days, I really put my blood, sweat and tears and it paid off. I had never reached that far before. I hope to do the same again. I feel I have grown in many ways, and have developed more self-discipline. I am worried though, because whenever something like this has happened, it is the calm before the storm. I hope to stay strong in the coming days, that I don't PMO. (I don't have urges to watch porn, but past experience tells me to stay aware) I have reset my day counter, and hope to get even further. You can find me on the 3-Day challenge, and I will be working my way up from there again!
I wish all the best for everyone else. I have shown myself if you can put your mind to it, it can be done. And so can all of you.
For those interested, This is what I did to get to Day 22:
-Cold Shower EVERY day
-Get into a proper exercise routine, understand your body type and metabolism, and diet properly
(Money has been tight, so not the optimal diet, but I do my best)
-Log in to NoFap every day and post your day in whatever challenge(s) you are partaking in
-Someone here shared something called "The 3 Second Rule"; basically, if you see an attractive girl/guy (however you swing), look, admire, move on. As I have been socializing more and getting out more, it has been really helpful.
-Most urges have been small in the last 22 days, and what helped was to ignore it and quickly find a distraction.
-KEEP YOURSELF BUSY. Learn a new skill, Keep your mind stimulated.
-Instead of trying to drown out your anxiety/depression/pain, try and work through it. Do things that can make it better, make small steps to work towards your dreams. One day at a time.
-MAKE SURE YOU SPEAK UP. Spread the message, this is not just for porn addiction. If you don't speak about your problems, you can't get help for it.
Best of luck for everyone here!
And that's it. Relapsed and PMO'd yesterday. Not going to beat myself up about it, just going to start again.
