Day 6. One more to go.
Forgot to update yesterday! But am already 8/7 @2525. Thanks!
Day 5 complete! Stayed busy today, put myself in social settings, and focused on hitting my goals. Triggers still very present, but working on avoiding them, and learning methods for disrupting behavioral patterns when I encounter a trigger.
Glad to start with small steps like this 7-Day Challenge, to begin building healthy habits before the urges get stronger.
Day one is done! Its happening this time.
Day 2. I've had urges but I intend for 2018 to be porn free.
I've been reminiscing a lot lately about my high school years, relationships I had and how they could've been better had I not continued this addiction. I don't want to live with anymore regret though. I want to use the rest of my youth wisely and have even better experiences.
Lets begin 2018 with something I can be proud of. Always struggled reach a week without PMO but today its time
Today's tasks are completing this day and studying this afternoon. Nothing more matters
Challenge starting today! 7 more days to go!
Day 3 done no pmo, it's getting easier and rougher at the same time. My normal pmo habits are trying to take hold. Have to resist the urges they are coming fast and furious I can do this!
Feeling impatient to quickly reach that 7 day mark. Anyway time moves slow and I am willing to struggle.
Day 1 complete.
So, a quick update: Have been free from porn since last Wednesday afternoon and free from Self sex since last Thursday, thus my PMO tracker tracker is not really accurate.
Feeling positive. A little PTSD this morning. Thinking about my ex again and how to move on and when I will really let go and if that process will be painful and emotional. Will I cry? I have a hard time crying, my feeling being so numbed down and opressed. Only time will tell!
Feeling very positive about myself. Very communicative and direct. As I wanna be basically.
Day 2 no O
Just completed 7 days today before I learned of this challenge! Let's go for the next level
Day 0 starts in 4 minutes
I can sympathize. I wanna recover and feel confident and whole again but I also get sneared by my low impulse controll and fear and lack of endurance and especially lack of patience. I am like: shouldnt I just heal up instantly since I wan't and need it so much?
Never that simple.
Okay today is my day to begin the 7 day challenge. I clicked yes when I was prompted to cast my vote. I think I accepted the challenge according to the instructions.
First of all, EVERYONE has low impulse control. You're not alone. When you're working on transforming a particular impulse to fit your goals, it can't seem like you're making any progress.
Every time you commit (and recommit) to NoFap, your brain and body are getting the message. It can take some time for your body and mind to understand, but awesome is happening. (That being said, you have to be careful of overconfidence as well!)
Lastly, I've learned to not focus on trying to rush toward the 7-day milestone. Keep it cool, focus on structuring your life and mind around other goals (like fitness, work, etc.), and the days will fly by.
I'm starting this challenge for a Clean New Year !
1 Day in !
Yes, of course you have to focus on other then just abstinence and make atleast a few short-term goals that keep you balanced, focused, concentrated and motivated to maintain this healthy and prosperous lifestyle.
