Day 1 /30
Slipped up smh :/
I can do this though I have faith !
Do you feel different?
Without question. Less shame, more in control for starters. I wrote elsewhere that what I came to learn was the PMO thing was part of a big distraction on my part. My mind is shifted quite a bit from what I thought was my only sexual satisfaction. There's something else I connected with too which relates to the Social Media phenomenon - FOMO - Fear of Missing Out. Always trying to make sure you don't miss the next best erotic, kinky, horny, etc. scene in a clip somewhere.
I've gained "hours" back in a day to devote to more meaningful and fruitful things in my life. That's huge for me.
I feel depressed nowadays
but it says day 419?
Yes. It's kind of like when you're stuck in a room with bad ventilation, with bad air, and then you go outside on a nice day and breathe in the fresh mountain breeze. I feel more in control of my life, and have a better sense of overall satisfaction. Of course, the urges are always there. There is one particular porn clip that I saw once that completely blew me away, and I keep having these thoughts about it and how nice it would be to watch it again. And unfortunately, I know exactly where it is, and exactly what to look for which makes it that much harder. But that is part of the challenge. Porn certainly made a huge impact on your life, if you're here, and it will never fully go away. This is why in Alcoholics Anonymous they always consider themselves 'recovering alcoholics'. They never consider themselves cured. They will be 'recovering' until the day they die. That is because the temptation is always lurking there in the background. It will never go away. The key is not to try to defeat the urges, but to control them.
Yes you can! Just keep at it!
Day 23 complete!

you're great man! make it through and get it!
