I want to join. Just finished a 3-day challenge. Stepping it up. Day 0 (3)
Im In bro.
Alright. Day 2 done. Tomorrow's gonna be a busy one, so I'm feeling good going into it that I won't have any idle time to waste with old habits.
Day 3 - bam! 2525...you're a warrior brother. Thanks for the support! Onward!
Day 2 completed successfully
Moving on to day 3
Today and tommorow are holidays and so little worried and my dick is pulsating too
But i wanna do this whatever it takes
I am concious and awake
Relapsed can i start again
This is day 2, day 1 completed succesfully.
"Completed Day 3" - "Starting Day 4" (total 40 days)
There was no urges yesterday, but I'm still going strong, so I'm gonna continue as I should. :\
Day 2 ends, day 3 begins!
Day 4, check in..
Congratulations! 40 Days is a great milestone!
I finished without starting (day 142), cya
Day 4 - I have to be honest and say I was really close to relapsing a couple of hours ago. But not with the porn, I rarely crave porn.
Reasons I did not relapse:
1 - This thread. I know it would feel terrible to write here and say that I have relapsed, so I would rather avoid that sense of shame. Although we shouldn't feel shameful because we relapsed, at least we are doing our best and trying! It just that every single relapse makes you feel like crap.
2 - I am reading "You are not your brain" for the past couple of months (reading it many times) and trying to apply everything from it. It's a great book btw, and I highly recommend it. So I have applied "The Four Steps" method from that book. It is kinda difficult to explain it so you have to actually read the entire book.
But Step 3 is about Refocusing your attention of something else rather than your strong urges and thoughts, and I did just that. I used "word search" to refocus my attention and it worked great! I have used this website, so try it if you want http://word-search-puzzles.appspot.com/ 15 minutes later, I have completed one puzzle and I my cravings reduced from 10 to 7. I did one more any my craving was pretty much gone. Had a wonderful morning!! No sense of shame!
3 - My main reason for doing this is to work with my emotions and if I use masturbation to avoid feeling any "difficult" emotions than I am simply wasting my time. Being 100 Days free from PMO doesn't mean much to me, unless I learn to work with my emotions skilfully. I do not want to hide from them anymore.
Well, I have more reasons for not relapsing, but those 3 played a massive role.
Now I know from experience, every time I have a strong urge and do not relapse, the next 2-3 Days are easy and urge-free.
I have crated this excel chart and using it to mark my urges, although only half of the day passed, I have marked this day with RED color.
Thanks for the encouragement, it means so much.
And I have faith that you will get past the urges my friend.
They are just a normal part of the process I would be a fool if I expected this ride to be urge-free.
You will have them too in the future, I will have them, everyone else will.
But like they say: "Pain is temporary, Victory is forever".
Thank you, I sure will.
I made a mistake with it. One week does not have 10 Days Wanted to do it differently and forgot to remove weeks.

Would really love a chart like this but am not very computer savvy.. Is it possible that a format of this can be uploaded so people can download and make use of?
Day 3 done and gone..
All right! I have arrived at 5/7. Thanks God and NoFap colleagues are doing well. Every day the option is the same: To be able to achieve self-control and seek to leave oneself to give the best to others. In the end, what you give is what you receive: What you sow, you harvest. Cheer up. the important thing is to get up and start again. No matter how many times one falls, if one manages to rise just one more time!
