    Just few hours away from crossing the 30-day benchmark. And since I've got to head into work, there shouldn't be an issue. Glad to have been here amongst this group. And, everyone, keep up the good fight.

    I remember last April 4 (2020) and how disgusted with myself i was.

    That relapse was what got me to make an honest effort at NoFap after quitting and diving into the PMO rabbit hole head first.

    There was intensive motivation to begin again.

    My life is so much better without PMO. There is nothing PMO can do for me that is positive. All PMO can do is make me feel bad and reset my daycount. Or drive me to fully and totally relapse with no desire to return to abstinence. The latter is likely.

    As temptation approaches, as it always does, i will remind myself that it is but a stepping stone toward reset, which is a stepping stone toward relapse.

    In truth, O is so unsatisfying, that i immediately want more than it has to offer, and this is during the actual O itself. I tell myself i could have had an even better one. Sick.

    The anticipation of O is the driver toward reset. It's never as i good as i imagine it will be but i believe it will be even better than i can imagine, even though i know it will be unsatisfactory at best.

    That is the truth. Anticipation is a lie, the end result is never worth the hype.

  12. I agree. Caffeine always made the urges worse for me. When I make coffee, it's half caffeinated and half decaf. A couple of years ago I tried no caffeine for about a year, and it was a pleasant experience but I felt less motivated and energetic. As with many other things, I think moderation is the key. There are so many drinks and foods and substances that can be abused and taken to unhealthy extremes.
  13. @sjindjin - Nice job on reaching 30 days yesterday. Thanks for being part of the group.

  14. @Enless Hope - You have been added to the waiting list. Watch your alerts. It may be several weeks before we have an opening for you.

    @andyYeahman - You have been added to the waiting list, but (as stated in the rules) you will need to activate your counter before you can join the group.

  15. Just checking in! I'm doing much better recently and having hardly any urges...I'm finding that keeping my hand away from my dick is so important as before I was edging almost every day and that would eventually lead back to PMO. I'm trying to challenge what it is that leads me to edge

    Low level urges, has to be stress-relief trigger. Not severe enough for me to actually want to give in. But i still recognize the urge as present.

    I think it's super important to recognize and sit with the low level urges. If I ignore them or brush them off they have a way of turning into high level urges. Nice work!
