    How about making the goal 4 hours? Check in every 4 hours during the day until you get your feet under you again. I bet you can do 4 hours and if you can do it once, you can do it again. Hang in there.

  6. Day 15.

    Smooth sailing, just me and Jesus on the boat with water like glass. Peace, wind or storms it doesn't matter as long as He's on my boat.

    ...and then I bark from the shore and wag my tail and plunge into the water and swim out to the boat and Jesus grabs me by the scruff of the neck and hauls me on board and I shake my fur out and drench you both in a shower of water that smells like fish and dog. Hope you don't mind. :emoji_dog2:

    Start of a new week. I’m going to try to get lots done this next week. That can be a trigger but it leads to growth too.

    Checking in. I'm almost stepping on the first milestone!

    Psalms 107.10–16 (MSG)
    Some of you were locked in a dark cell, cruelly confined behind bars,
    Punished for defying God’s Word, for turning your back on the High God’s counsel—
    A hard sentence, and your hearts so heavy, and not a soul in sight to help.

    Then you called out to God in your desperate condition; he got you out in the nick of time.
    He led you out of your dark, dark cell, broke open the jail and led you out.
    So thank God for his marvellous love, for his miracle mercy to the children He loves;
    He shattered the heavy jailhouse doors, he snapped the prison bars like matchsticks!

    wow, up to 18 days all of a sudden. That seemed fairly easy, and included a couple of work trips away. Heading off overseas again for work this week.. another test.

    Have felt really good diving head first back into routine meditation, and re-reading the Pema Chodron book I’ve referred to earlier. It’s all therapeutic!

    Keep strong everyone!

    I struggled with a lot of temptation this weekend but being in this group and not wanting to slip in my ranking gave me the little added motivation to get through it. Thank you for this.

    Checking in for today :)!!! After my last slipped up, I knew I needed to change. There are days I don't feel like myself, but I keep pushing forward because I want to change. I want to grow in my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I don't want this desire to creep into my future marriage, so I need to change. One day, I heard my Savior voice asking me loud and clear, 'Am I Enough For You?' Wow! That blew me away because that was the loudest I ever heard my Savior's voice before. I'd cried and told him Yes! You are enough for me. Yet, I still messed up, I still slipped like that question didn't mean anything to me. After that slip, I never felt the same again. Lies started pouring into my mind saying, 'see, you messed up again and you will never ever be broken or free from this bondage' or 'being afraid when that temptation come, I would give in to that temptation'. I have to keep telling myself that My Savior is more then enough for me! I have to change!!! I need to change!!! I think, I finally realized that enough is enough and I am truly ready to change this time. I know my Lord loves me and He still forgiven me even thou that last slip happen. Last Thursday, I worked in an event and I didn't realized the Christian band that was coming to played that night was the band I was thinking about getting tickets for. Even thou I knew, I forgot they was coming. After I realize what kind of concert it was I freak out because I was able to see one of my favorite Christian band for free. I felt like my Heavenly Father took me on a date, just like a father takes his daughter out. He knows I am growing and wanting to change, He was just letting me know He is still there for me and that I am forgiven.
    Encouragement for everyone: You can push past this!!! I am praying for all of us to be Free and live the life that our Heavenly Father intended for us to live!!! Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

    Checking in, Day 2
    Had sex and got hit by chaser. Thats the reason. Urges come in short but powerful intervals. Fighting them off.

  20. Thanks for sharing. This is a process of developing new habits. The more you practice, the better you will be at it. I have found that self-acceptance - not condemning yourself every time you slip - is one of the keys to making progress in this area. I was trapped in that "shame cycle" for many years before discovering nofap.
