Ok, I am signing up for this challenge.
Relapsed. Started seeing things I shouldn't. Finished in pmo....0/90
Today will be 88/90, 2 days to go
Day 43/90 successful. Last time when I did streak this long... My social skin behaviour conditions were better than this time streak. Well I am waiting to get better again like that atleast. Now my behaviour is still awkward in between friends. Still memory didn't improve. Waiting ......... Anyways one more day under my belt. Cheers guys.
day 1/90 completed
bro, can you stay with porn? are you happy the way things are?
congratulations bro!!! keep going, we´re with you . Towards freedom
good call Curly, keep going!!!
awesome bro!!! my record is 55 days, i want YOU to pass it . Onwards my friend.
great post bro, i think you really nailed the spirit of nofap. this is not about becoming monks, this is about winning over a lustful addiction. when you want to give pleasure to yourself but without using some external source, that is perfect. you really made the reboot . congratulations. and great coincidence because last night i wrote in my guidelines a new point which is crucial to understand the core of this addiction. i will write below.
big hug my friend

My friends, besides the damaging effects that porn does to your body and mind there´s another problem much deeper that goes through society that i think we don´t talk here as often.
You see, we´re not really addicted to porn, we´re addicted to sexual stimulation - lust. Lust is basically dwelling in sexual amusement.
Sex should come in the context of a loving strong connection, not as a means through an end. Lust - whether from porn, softcore, hookers, your dirty mind, whatever…. reduces human beings to objects. We stop seeing a person as a whole and reduce it to it´s sexual feature. We´re using people instead of loving people. It´s the same nature of killing, stealing, etc… we´re not respecting others, we´re abusing them.
Society has a great deal in why things are this way, we are constantly being bombarded by sexy materials, it´s everywere. And that is something we must strongly say “NO”. We should know somebody´s body when we know their traits. That creates a deep connection between two people and through it sex becomes a transcendental experience.
So everytime society presents you with the glorification of the body, wether from movies, magazines, internet, prostitutes, etc… turn your head away. People are not body parts, they do not exist to satisfy our needs.
I have no doubt that much of the violence and tension between men and women are deeply rooted in the way society encourages the reduction of people to objects.
So if we can see from this perspective our attitude towards PMO changes from “fighting it off” our system to “giving it up” because it´s plain wrong.
I don´t mean to be cheesy but i think those groups of people that were protesting against porn 50 years ago they were right all along.
Day 6. So far so good.
Thanks bro, much love
Congrats bro I am sooo happy for you. I wish you could reach all your goals in your new life.
