    Thanks, @artifact nice to be back!

    I drank too much on Friday and PMOed afterwards. Alas! Now time to turn this trend around.

    I am continuing to work with my mantra, which is at times remarkably challenging. “I’m a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God” is a tricky thing to keep repeating when I feel miserable, horny, frustrated, annoyed, etc... but it also reminds me that it is ok to feel those feelings while being opened up to God and to my mantra. It feels like a baby step forward.

    Excellent perspective. I feel you on this. Urging. Use that sexual energy and/or transmute it for good. Instead of shaming ourself for it right. Thanks for sharing!

    Yep. There's always a way to find porn. I'll bet cavemen drew stick figures of women in the dirt and jerked off to them. Always a way.

    I've catalogued them and solved them all one at a time. Now it's just about staying motivated for me.

    My journal captured most of them if you are.currious what I'm working on. The big thing now is I need more of a desire to move forward and I need to work plan day by day.
     
  11. Funny how being gone and not having much choice makes this pretty easy. I was busy most of the time and didn't really think about. Once I got home though, the urges started. Why does having a choice make this so hard?

    In Gita there is a really cool saying that your will is your best weapon and your worst enemy. Kinda makes sense.

    I am shlepping along. No physical urges but the mind wants to PMO. I hate it when that happens!

    Dont tolerate the thoughts when it begins bro. It's always easiest to fight those impure thoughts when they are at infancy. Know the triggers too... If drinking opens u up to temptation, then i would avoid it for the time being. If it's netflix movies, then stay away for the time being (i did and it was a tremendous positive change - no turning back). It will be worth it!

    Hi everyone 75 days today, I've been here before but I must keep working and growing. Each day is different and has its own worries and battles to fight. So keeping focused on what's important on the goals we have set for us and our lives it's important.

    Stay clean, stay free, live on the Way.

    Of course it's my problem. And a lot of people have the same problem. But I do think the internet for people with PMO issues is like bringing drugs into the house of someone trying to quit. I don't even have to leave to get it and it's free.

    Another day, just around the 30-day bend. Now for the 60 day stretch. Then a straight line to the finish, except this race never ends because it's not a race at all. One day at a time is sure to win just for today.

    I have the same issue. When I'm busy or with friends, and family I don't think about it. However, as soon as I anticipate that I will be alone, I start obsessing about watching P. COVID has disrupted my routine. When I was on my streak, I was hardly alone and usually my alone time to work on personal projects. I'm always home now and personal projects are a after thought. I think I really need to get back socializing and working out outside of the house.
