    Started Challenge on Jan 25, 2019
    Relapsed 7/192 Days
    Day 90/90 meeting my goals
    Day 54 of weight training
    - feeling good with strong resolve today to abstain from PMO even after having alcohol and caffeine yesterday which can be known triggers
    - WOW! day 90/90 has finally arrived, though still not completed properly yet so "I'll be back!" as Arnold says. LOL
    - I will be leaving this challenge for a couple of weeks to regroup for the next 90 day challenge which I intend to start on Aug 19, my 22nd wedding anniversary
    - I relapsed 4 times this time around but continued counting because I wanted to see what level of success I could achieve in 90 days- more like a score out of 90 approach
    - 86/90 days of no PMO is a HUGE success in my books and will continue to look at the glass as an optimist would, half full
    - since joining nofap, my average of 7/192 days works out to a relapse only about once every month which is significant improvement from the past
    - this approach helps me stay positive and I highly recommend it over restarting your counter every relapse
    - hopefully next challenge will be the one with a zero relapse
    - I think I will will break it down into three 30 day challenges which may feel more manageable
    - I will continue to post daily on my "Reboot and BPH Journal" if anyone wants to follow my progress
    - see you all on Aug 19 and good luck with your challenges
    - special thanks to @RiseToGreatness as your posts and comments have been very helpful - keep it up, bro!
    - Cheers!

    2 days no masturbation or porn.
    11 days trying to cut back on sugar.
    14 days no alcohol.
    37 days no social media.
    Rosary 2 days.

    This new approach I started yesterday seams to be working well. Been crushing cravings. I feel like I made some new pathways in the brain yesterday and this morning. Some urges, but I absolutely will not touch Willie. I do not know why, but this shift of attention from not watching porn to not masturbating is making a real difference. I have always looked back to the day when I found porn and regretted it. Never ever did I look back to the first day I masturbated. I think that day was a way higher mistake. It was a year or two after I found porn. It was a full and conscious decision to try. Finding porn was not. Never apologised to God for that day. I just did. I am crying a bit. I am feeling a good and healthy remorse. That was the worst decision of my life. I hope I can continually make the full and conscious decision to not masturbate now. My porn is one thing. I did not decide to be exposed to something so powerful at such a vulnerable age. I did decide to try masturbating. I take full responsibility for this one. I can't believe how much I am crying. God, I know I made a terrible decision. Please forgive me and if you will it, please give me the strength to stop.

    I quit drinking for over 10 years once. The quit day was 15 years ago today. Kind of cool that I am having this revelation today. I am going to stay off the booze from now on too. While I never did have more than 2 drinks in a day in the last 5 years like I promised myself. I think it was a mistake. My family has terrible alcohol issues. It's so sad. They were all happy and relieved to see me drinking again

    Finally have 1 day back on the clock. Not been binging, just not been making it through the day. My attitude has been slowly improving, as well as how I feel. Hope this is the start of something.

    Had a really good chat with a friend yesterday. Talked about all sorts of things, but the one that stuck with me is when she was talking, and reminding me, that life is all about choices. We choose how we act, how we react, what we do and even how we want to feel. In 'The Art of Happiness', with the Dalai Lama, it talks about how we can choose to be happy, and that it is a skill that you can train and practice. Some words to get you thinking there :)

    12 days without an accident.

    I've often compared this bad habit to other addictions such as alcohol and illicit drugs. Quiting those can result in withdrawal. Does something similar happen with quitting PMO? I've been feeling like crap since the beginning of this week. Monday morning began with me being so irritable that I hated the sound of everyone's voice. That transitioned to waves of depressing thoughts every evening. I'm feeling better now but I have no clue what brought on such negative moods. I know moodiness does not compare to withdrawals. However, I don't normally have an intense mood without a reason.

    You have no idea. They can get downright brutal...

    I am both tempted and afraid to ask 'how brutal?' Uh, no need to respond tho. No inquiry here. Just, whatever you've been through, I'm glad you came out the other side of it intact.

    My Journal
    There were nights I was in my room pacing around talking to myself. I couldn’t tell what was real and what wasn’t. Massive anxiety attacks. I had a full week go by and I had only gotten 7 hours of sleep total...

    That was last year. My first run in with the withdrawals. Some people don’t get them so bad though.

    Day 4/90 Checking in. Last night I started searching sexual related news and questions which made me more and more hornier which will lead to relapse later. This happened many times. I finally cut it down without going near PM. Happy that I cut it before it is latee. CHeers guys.

    Good on you dude. Find an interest or hobby of your choosing to focus on so that a later relapse can be averted. You can do it.
