    I have seen people mentioning adding a cold shower as part of their routine.
    Is this something that helps with the urges or is it just to help with breaking routine and comfort zones?

    It is actually a health benefit. I've read that "winter swimming" helped cure people of chronic nerve pain - as in it never returned once they swam for about a minute.
    Google it :) the studies are everywhere, especially with sportsmen and women.
    It helps a lot with depression too. It has a vast amount of health benefits; stimulates hair, skin, eases stress, improves immunity -
    AND it does help with pushing 'comfort zone' boundaries!
    I think I will give it a try again after this :D
    edit/DISCLAIMER: Winter swimming is not for everyone, as it can create issues with people that have heart conditions, so consult your doctor first!
  4. A cold shower turns you off of being horney and makes your cock and balls shrink to micro size rendering them useless. Lol

    Talks with God

    I am seeing my pride. I have always gotten these thoughts and feelings of grandeur. While I have always struggled with self esteem there are some things that make me feel like I am better than everybody.

    My intelligence. Took an online IQ test at least 15 years ago. Said I have an IQ of 120. Even if true. That gives me no reason to feel superior to others. Also had others tell me how intelligent I am. Maybe I need to be grateful for that rather then proud.

    My talent for music. It is a talent I have. It is good to recognize that. I believe I have a special talent though. That I am more talented than any musician. That needs to stop. I think I need to be grateful for my talent. Not too proud of it. I sing Gregorian chant. That makes me feel superior to others. That's not good.

    My driving abilities. I think I am a better driver than everyone. Not good.

    I don't want to know how I would think about myself if this type of thing continues if I stop PMO. Maybe that is why God has not cured me of this yet. I need to lose these thoughts and feelings of superiority. When I would start making longer streaks these feelings would come. "I am the man". P"will think I am amazing". Then I fall. I need to remain humble and grateful and hope that no one finds out when I get good streaks because it will just go to my head. I am not letting these thoughts of grandeur come in with this streak. It wants to. I always fall shortly after this pride monster starts poking out its ugly little head. It has been trying to the last few days. I usually would have fallen by now. I am not letting it in though and it seams to be working. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.
