    Been a while since I checked in. Went on vacation which was nice, no urges that week. Felt refreshed for a full week after too. Back to normal now.

    I decided to take a long walk today in the noon it was so calm , streets were quiet and no one is wandering around except me , it was light raining, I felt so balanced, but on the second hand I still struggling with urges, I feel everything I do is boring and dull.

  5. Very challenging weekend. I was getting over being sick (probably pneumonia or something) and then water started leaking from my ceiling. Basically spent the whole weekend stressing out about that and finally today the plumber showed up and fixed the water leak upstairs. Luckily, made it through without PM. Hopefully next week will be easier.
     
  6. Boring and dull is not so bad. I'll take it over being homeless or in prison.

    I relapsed, but I did not Binge, I'm starting a new Goal first 3 months will be NO P, during this period I will keep M at minimum as much as I can I'm thinking 7-14 Days , I also want to add that I fast (NO WATER OR FOOD) On MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS for 12 hours/Day I like it because it makes me feel grateful and also breaks the boring routine.

    Yikes, pneumonia..that doesn't sound good. Plumbing issues can also be a nightmare, especially during these colder months. Feel better, mate!

    Hate water leaks, I have a phobia about them…nothing worse than seeing water coming through your ceiling! Glad you got on top of it!

    Stress and anxiety led to another reset. Should be scheduling an assessment with a CSAT next week so will hopefully start making some meaning progress soon. Even as I sit here typing I am fighting the urge to just give in and start binging, probably a good time for a workout!

    Checking in.

    I've been struggling. I haven't reset my counter until today, but I've had several resets over the past few days. I feel awful, physically and emotionally, and P has--predictably--made everything worse. I've decided I need to move on from my issues of last two weeks and really commit to sobriety.

    Thank you! Thanks for allowing me to join the group.

    I started nofap several years ago and have had runs up to 10 months (no p, no m). Since then, I've been able to string together tons of 2 and 3 week streaks, but I usually run into some difficulties at that point.

    I am 44, married with two young children. I have normal stresses of life but overall, am pretty lucky.

    I saw a summary of "Atomic Habits", where one of the points is accountability helps habits (of course), so I finally got on here and asked to sign up.

    My trigger is being home alone, which doesn't happen too often, but when it does, I'm 50/50. That is usually when the 2-3 week streak breaks down.

    I've been seeing a therapist for the first time in my life to work through some old issues. That has led me to supercharge my meditation and start journaling for the first time. I've been feeling better than I have in a long time in the last few weeks, like maybe I'm starting to shed some old, old junk that I've been holding onto for too long. I'm hoping that meditation, the therapist, and other self introspection, along with the group, will help me power onto a new, long streak.

    In the past, I've noticed increased energy at around 2-3 weeks to the point where I feel like I could run through a brick wall, but on the other hand, my anxiety becomes difficult to manage. I start to feel wired, and that is either a good or bad thing depending on how I'm managing it. Fapping then becomes the easy way to reset it, but I lose the good side of the wired part. I am ready to break through that and learn to manage the anxiety.

    Thanks again.

    Day 120. New milestone in sight...180 days!

    One of the biggest lessons I've learned so far deals with goal setting. Don't think in terms of a reaching a finish line. Think in terms of checkpoints on a continuous path. After reaching one milestone, set your sights immediately on a new one!
