1/90 yet again
Keeping myself busy with work and socializing with friends. Have to deal with being alone tonight though, wish me luck and strength to fight the urges.
I’m on this train as well.
First day completed.
I’ve one advice - music is a good way to think about everything except PMO.
Day 27 of 90
August 8, 2019 | Thursday
Vivid dreams are coming back after they stopped around Week 2.
So, you tripped and fell. Get back on your feet with renewed resolve for this Day 1. You can do it.
Like others have said here, you really need to divert your attention when tempted. Drop what you're doing and take a walk if possible. Understand what triggers you and avoid it like the plague. Just passing on tactics that work for me.
A prayer of strength for you dude. Find a good book or movie tonight.
Keep at it. You can do it.
Day 5. Yesterday was incredibly hard, but stayed the course. I just documented all of the consequences of falling off the wagon in my journal. That was helpful!
Eheh thanks bro, there will be a day when you'll write:
"i'm in great health and haven't a single desire to pmo in a long time. Pmo is gone and buried for me." That mark in your life, when you open that bottle of champanhe, i will be here congratulating you
Lets do this bro, till the end.
3 days no masturbation and porn.
12 days less sugar.
15 days no alcohol.
38 days no social media.(been that long already)
Did not pray my Rosary yesterday.
I am sore this morning and all my body wants to do is act out. I am feeling urges because of this soreness. I will take a Tylenol and have a hot bath. I pushed the panic button and it seams to have worked. My urges have subsided somewhat. I will not give in. No matter how hard it gets. I can't let myself slide anymore.
I ordered a book that was recommended to me by someone in another forum here on NOFAP. "The emotionally absent mother" by Jasmin Lee Cori. Should be here in a week or two. I know I have discussed my mom issues on here before. This seams like a great book that will help me tremendously. My issues with PMO have much to do with her.
I am realising that it is not all just my emotional brokeness that causes me to act out. I use it as medicine for physical discomfort too. I need to be careful. When I am in physical discomfort I need to find other remedies. I guess the same goes for emotional discomfort. Masturbation is not medicine.
Good apointment there bro. Im also off alcohol for this streak (i drank only in a party some weeks ago)
Dont blame yourself over past decisions bro. Its a mistake when seen in present eyes, but back then it was what you feel was right to do. Coping with physicological pain is hard man. Its probably the greatest ordeal a person has to handle.
But now you're on the right path, thats what matters. Lets do this my brother, one day at a time.
All adictions have withdrawls bro. Pmo is no exception. So angriness, moodiness, insomnia, agitation, weakness, etc... they are all sympthoms of withdrawal.
Avoid sugar and alcohol has this substances will increase your suffering. On the other hand, exercise, good sleep, good nutrition and plenty of water will help get through the reboot. Much love bro, you can do this, you will do this.
Benefits? Bro, im on day 36 or 37, im feeling a million bucks and i still haven't reach half the challenge
You'll blow the roof top with well being bro!! Just wait and see
Yep, try to write all the typical excuses to pmo. Then write also the answers to them. Read that every day, so when urges appear you'll be prepared . Works like a charm. Keep focus bro, keep sharp.
Feeling great today my brothers. Honestly i'm feeling very determinated and resolved about pmo ending. Can't seem to think on one positive outcome out of pmo.
I think this is very important to everyone. I suggest everybody write down all the justifications that you use to relapse. (There's lots of them, and all so bullshit). Then write down all the answers to each one of them. Read that every single day. so one when the addict mind tries to play a trick, you'll be prepared .
Lets do this my brothers, one day at a time.
"Rocks in the way? I'll pick them all. One day i'll build a castle" F. Pessoa
Newbie here, I'M IN!
Exactly bro, in fact i think as long as one keeps a secret positive view about pmo, that trait will undermine the reboot efforts. So see if you have some hidden good consideration about pmo. Expose it to yourself. Then it will be easier to cope with urges.
When all becomes clear, nofap will automatic turn into a lifestyle, no matter what day is on. That's what's working for me
Much love bro, lets do this!!!
It is ok to blame myself. I don't hate myself for it. I am just owning it. It is a decision I made that has had a huge impact on my life and the life of others in a negative way. I forgive myself. It was my call and my fault. Just owning it.
