    I don't think you will annoy anyone, Rebooter. This board has quieted down a bit lately so I think you posting more is a good thing. And thanks for your kind words. Yes, I feel like things are going well with my no PMO process and I feel good. However, I can't give all credit to being at 40 days as I have made other changes that may be bigger factors, meditation being the biggest of them. But what I'm doing is working and I'm gonna stick to it. Glad to have you here, and hope to keep seeing you around.

    As for the corona situation in the USA, yes it is a bit of a mess. And similar to what artifact said, I feel that the media fans the flames to piss people off so that they will tune into the news more. If you look at my signature, I have stayed away from watching the news for over two weeks because it all just pisses me off and makes me feel negative in other ways. And people in my area don't want to wear masks which really pisses me off too. So I just try my best to keep the whole situation in the background instead of up-front, and focus on my own personal challenges as we all wait this thing out.

    Thanks buddy, We all brothers together fighting the same cause, if I can do it you can do it too.

    It's not easy. It's just about finding what works for you.

    I am still worried that one day I will relapse but just trying to avoid thinking about it.

    I feel so much more productive now, I just want to get sh** done, riding my bicycle to work and putting a podcast on and walking 10k-15k step a day, just started some health courses too and they're cheap check out Umzu.com the owner his name is Christopher Walker teaches you about health etc and has his own podcast as well it's top stuff.

    Sometimes I am sitting there and I do think about porn but.once I feel that dopamine release I quickly switch off the thoughts and think about something else.

    See if it works for you bro.

    Keep strong dude.

    It's a new month. If you've been in a rut, let's make this month work!

    Yes , you are right that's why i suggested to direct message me istead of posting here. ;)
    And from what i know for the situation there , i agree with your small comment about media.
    Divide and conquer!

    So close to 30, but messed up at day 27.

    I'm really disappointed in myself, but I'll never give up this battle. I would rather live the ups and downs then live a life of PMO.

    I'm coming back strong to face a new streak. Better than I have ever done in the past.

    Exactly. Suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of inaction.

    (The original quote used 'regret'- I like inaction better).

    Checking in. All being well, I will pass 30 days this week. It hasn't been plain sailing, but being able to lean on you guys and this forum has made it far more manageable.

    There have been several (at least three) occasions over the last few weeks when I would absolutely have given in. That little voice starts up with "where's the harm," and "just one." And it picks the moments when I'm weakest and most likely to agree with it. Before finding this place, I would have.

    Each time that I've been close to going back to P, I have come here instead and read through some posts. It's inspiring. It reminds me of why I'm making the effort at all. Most important of all, it makes me feel like I'm not doing this on my own.

    For the first time in a very long time, probably ever, it feels like there's a sustainable way out.

    I can relate to this. It can be a real challenge not to give into temptation. I've found that enforcing some structure/organisation is important - even just making a list of things to do.

    I've been there. If you mess up once and get back on track you are in great shape. Just don't let it turn into a week.

    Checking in. It’s definitely been a rough week or so for me. I think with everything going on, it causing me to stress. When I stress, I seek P. I’m trying to stay aware of my thoughts and feelings to ensure that I don’t go down the rabbit hole. It’s been TOUGH but I’m hanging in there. I have to keep managing my time wisely.

    same for me. I talk a big game but I seem to turn to p to run away from the difficulties of life if I don’t have anything to do.

    I’m trying to break the cycle where I have to give up hope to get started on a good streak but it’s easy to see how that goes started.

    Reset again and just looking to get the 1st 1/2 day in tonight.
     
  13. Hi guys, I'm doing pretty well in spite of the news horror show and I broke a tooth today so I guess I'll be visiting the dentist soon. Got to stay positive!

    @Jerky - congrats on your 60 days as of yesterday! :emoji_cocktail: That's no small achievement.

    @Majorjsf - nice job on your 30 days today!
