Hi, welcome to the 90 day challenge!
Day 22one day at a time and one urge at a time.
All the best guys.
Have a nice day
Happy sunday everyone, keep it up,
23/90, quarter of the way....
Yesterday I noticed the power of simply saying no. I have been trying to do the 90 day challenge for the pas 18 months and never gotten this far. Felt a bit restless yesterday evening. Had to search for something in a cupboard, and came across some manga with some risky content I had carefully stowed away. Immediatly I thought: "just a peek" but then I said to myself NO, closed the drawer and that was that. I felt incredibly powerful and in control at that moment. And I didn't linger in the should I/shouldn't I mindset. I think of my addiction as a wild beast that needs taming. And a wild animal needs strict, consistant rules. Just a simple no and move on. When you're about to relapse, there is always that moment, that moment where you have a choice. All you have to do in that moment is to say NO. You can make up reasons why you shouldn't relapse, thinking about the destructive nature of pmo, about the length of your streak etc etc, but this is a language too complicated for the beast. If you just train the discipline to say NO right at that moment before relapse without thinking it over, maybe that's enough.
Well said, good advice, thanks!
Day 17 / 90
Less achievements in work but found a new hoppy "READING", IM LIKE BOOKS WORM NOW, lil bit confused but SURVIVING...........
take cold showers bro, they´re great to kill urges. give it a try!!
you can´t do that bro. the more isolate you are, the more you´ll tend to feel miserable, punish yourself and pmo as consequence. it´s isolation that contribute to the addiction installment in the first place!! you need the opposite direction. partners, groups, forums, do as you want but stay in touch. go bro, much love
hi bro, good to have you on board again. let´s do this!
yep, that´s pretty normal. and get ready for wet dreams
feeling tired and foggy today, then i do the wim hof technique and gain instant energy and awareness. try it brothers, it might help in difficult times.
I believe I will be leaving this thread in 6 days after a successful streak.There were times I would PMO and feel like I will never make even 3 days. But deep inside I knew I would overcome....84th day.

- often wondered why I could relate to the down and out, broken addictive people I meet and now I know, I am one of them
- most of my life I never thought enjoying your body's natural O function could be addictive
- now I know better, especially given the superstimulous of Internet porn
- the good side of Internet and the information age is I can be informed about porn addiction and how to end it
- your brother in this struggle
