Thursday check-in. Still busy.
Day 20 check in... I feel like I’m in the danger zone. Looking to escape reality I think. Maybe more to it than that.
You were at 11 days, right? This means this only sets you back by one day in terms of visiting Albania. We still wanna see you in Albania! Albania beckons you!!!
Yup, that’s the strategy... just watch it and do not act on it! Works for me too.
Glad to hear you made it through the temptation.

I’m through that ministorm using the technique lol. Didn’t let it go anywhere. I’ll get another 24 hours in and worry about the rest later.
That is a quote from Marcus Aurelius-Meditations, a book every man should read...as well as Sun Tzu’s Art of War.
On day 4 or 5, feeling a lot better guys. It’s all coming back to me. When I was on here last, before breaking my 91 day streak, I would read just about ever article from so many if the forums...I would research things that I read about here, really expanded my mind and understanding about so many things that all of us are going through. Straight men, gay men, bisexual men, men with SSA. About dopamine addiction, porn escalation, fantasies, confused interpretations. I AP’d up with so many people and ended up advising a lot of guys...you could see-hear-read the positive changes over time. Guys rekindling with their wife, family, girlfriend, going back to the gym, getting more involved with work and fun hobbies....
Confidence comes back, focus gets sharper, brain gets clear, concentration becomes much much stronger, power and magnetism return.....the brain begins to rewire, the body, brain, and mind begin to detox. Guilt and shame evaporate, command of presence returns...we become a man among and above men. It is truly epic!!!! Kicking porn is the easy part, quitting M is the harder part-when the desire to O begins to rear its head, it is hard to resist, but believe me, when you go without O for 30+ days, you begin to feel the power! I remember going through flatlining, and after flatlining, the body and mind come back bigger and stronger than ever. At 60+ days, I quite literally felt like I was walking around in a low-grade orgasm all day...i would leak pre-c throughout the day-most intense experience ever.
It got to be so intense that one day I just let the rawnes if it all get the best of me, I rubbed one out in the shower, and that was it. But here I am now, heading into what seems like the beginning of the flatline, all over again. But it’s ok, it will end in 2-3 weeks, and then I’ll begin the slow, steady climb...stacking days together to form weeks, then stacking weeks together to form a month...then it will be 1 month and a day, then one month and a week, two months and one day, etc etc.
Good luck, sir. You've been kicking butt lately.
Yes, it is definitely an adventure.
You guys are sharing some amazing insights lately. It is an honor to have you in the group.
It's like a sleeping beast ... must be in our calculations that occasionally wakes up hungry!
Great quote, I'm saving this one. Have you run across any interesting nuggets in Sun Tzu that would be helpful to us in the war with PMO?
Oh wow that's so true. I'm adding this one to my wise quotes journal. Thanks for the encouragement man.
Checked the list and I'm at the bottom of the dog pile. Bleh. Doesn't feel great.
God forgives me. He loves me just the same. He's not going to love me more after I conquer PMO than he already loves me today, no more than a good father would love his son more if he became a corporate CEO than if he were a disabled child. The love stays the same.
I had a great day yesterday but my commute home got the best of me and I gave in shortly after walking through the doors. The rest of the evening was good but back to zero.
Checking in. Super stressful week coming to a close and No acting out for this guy. Just realized it’s been over 6 months since I’ve viewed porn. Can’t believe it’s been that long but I’m happy to be away from it.
Strong work. Keep it going. You'll feel even better in 6 more months.
Checking in.... counter reset. In the past it’s taken at least a couple weeks to get going on a decent streak again, but this doesn’t seem like the end of the world. PM isn’t good for me and I’m going to start a new streak today! A new country in 10 days!
(I’m scared it’s going to be an ugly few weeks; but fake it till you make it! Lol)
Once you mentally get past no PMO, and set semen retention as your ultimate goal, no PMO becomes infinity easier. Expand that mission to the real goal, and you can see the prior goals as composites of that big picture, ultimate goal. A word to the wise....of course kicking just P and M when you need to share semen is also acceptable!!
