    It's been 9 months all! No P and No M (married). It's been quite a journey so far and make no mistake, when you decide to quit PMO, you are in fact taking on a journey.

    I skipped my 8th month update due to my son being born a few months back! Life has been tiring but so rewarding. It's been bottles and sleepless nights for me.

    Anyways, when you quit porn, you are really undertaking an arduous climb. It's not always easy, it's not always peaceful, but there is only one way and that is up! The trend is upward as long as you stay faithful to your decision.

    There are no magic pills, no 7 steps, no secret diet or superpowers. There is no breaking of bad habits-you only replace them with better ones. As I've mentioned in my previous months, I've leaned into my Christian faith. It's helped me a lot. I know not everyone is religious, but i feel like i have to be truthful in my testimony.

    Aside from my faith, I've started to read more, I'm also trying new instruments, new hobbies. I've also reintroduced caffeine back into my system! Oh glorious caffeine!

    In terms of health, I've kept up my gym and diet regimen, managed to lose about 10lbs in about 3 months.

    Now that's not to say that things have been perfect in the 9 months.
    There are still intrusive thoughts but they only last for a few seconds. When it does come, I handle it a lot better than previous months. I have installed and uninstalled instagram as there are too many fitness or model accounts that are don't help with my thougths.

    Also, I've been training my thoughts to be obedient. By that I mean lust in my thought life. It's not that i dont respect women because I do. I just want to respect them in my thoughts as well. Porn has to be cleared from all storage spaces, whether it be digitally or mentally. Even after 9 months, there are still remnants.

    Anyways, this has been mostly a rant. For you new guys or girls in here, don't give up. Porn is hell, porn is the worst. Trust the process! It's a climb and for some the climb is steeper, but the prize peace, mental clarity, joy, hope, and your future!

    See you guys at 10 months!

    The journey is difficult at first, but it does get better. Keep at it! The price we paid to PMO is high enough!

  11. Thanks for this post. I am struggling a little bit at 56 days, and needed the inspiration. This is a great and true quote: "Porn has to be cleared from all storage spaces, whether it be digitally or mentally." You are right that porn is hell. I need to keep that in mind.

    God bless you brother

    I'm on day fourteen hard mode recovering post acute withdrawl symptoms (flat line) I've lived a twisted pmo addiction which was intertwined with demonic entities. I believe in God and what God can do is a testimony in your life. Thanks again for sharing! God bless you brother!
