12/90 not even wet dreams during this streak
No feeling is final, endure.
Day 61 !!! Yess
Day 4 of self love and learning.
Day 2 complete
Day 36 2nd wet dream in this streak, the first one was around day 20, I think on 21st day
Day 3 fine
Going smoothly to day 4
Day 3/90. Having a difficult time with, but hoping to grasp the concept of fooling yourself. I always fail, and I think I'm not the only one, with the "just one peek" thought. Thinking I can outsmart myself. Feeling clever about it. And by doing so sabotaging myself.
Telling myself my problem is orgasming while watching porn. But using porn as a (sexual) outlet is the problem. Needing a fix, if only peeking. It's about my whole relationship with porn.
Good luck everyone.
Yes, I know exactly how that goes. That's my trap as well.
Day 19 - almost 20.
We're getting there Not many cravings today. I'm not getting complacent and am not planning to. Instead I accept this new behaviour as a new way of life.
I had a sexual dream this morning, it really felt like a relapse. These dreams are damn scary. Like they really put you down emotionally whilst you're in it and when you wake up you're relieved. Your conscious mind kind of wakes up.
Also, I think when we are still in that sleepy Alpha wave state, that is one of the situations when we are more vulnerable to compulsive decisions. Our conscious mind goes partly dormant. So we need to be extra careful at those times.
And the same is for not having slept enough or having slept enough but stayed in bed while sleepy and then being in this hangover like state for having stayed in bed for too long (which in my experience, always felt worse than not having slept enough). It can compromise your mental stability throughout the day.
But that is all just part of the journey. Everything is.
I wish everybody a great weekend.
May it be good or bad, you know the drill.
I'll keep updating.
Yeah, I totally get it. ^^
I had that too. The way I see it, is that this happens, because there is a part of our conscious decision making, that still wants to do PMO and obviously it will try to create excuses.
Which are products of ignorance. Ignorance towards yourself and your health. And in the end of your whole life. In other words an act of self-deception, in its entirety.
I am just going to share what I did, and you can try and see if it works for you.
So, what I did, was training my mind and internalizing the truth about what PMO is, what are the advantages of abstinence and overcoming the addiction and what are the disadvantages of continuing down the path of compulsiveness/addiction.
Then at the end, what is my dream goal or goals.
Write as much as you can about the things I mentioned first and at the end, write down your truest hearts desires, the things that you want to have and or achieve in your life and the life that you want to live (it is also intended to not put any logical limitations to your long-term goals ). At the end your goals are supposed to give you an emotional feeling when you think about it.
This exercise is the key to organizing your thoughts and building your determination to quit the addiction.
I hope this helps.
Much blessings and keep going strong.
Day 21 today! Had a bit of a search on some chat apps stupidly, nothing happened but it was very risky!! Think it's just an unhealthy craving for attention which is so pointless. Anyway, locked down the app store and picking myself back up!
Let me ask. If I have a wet dream and I actually release sperms but it happened via the dream. Does it count as a relapse or I continue with my days.
Great advice thanks. I do it to but I use my to build self confidence by writing my positive traits and positive side
Today am finishing day 18. And starting day 19 tomorrow.
For the past three days I haven't been having any urges. And some how am starting to reduce the awareness I used to put in. I can feel my mind having confidence that I have control over my urges. But I not gona reduce the efforts after reading that.
am gona work harder.
Thanks for the advice and knowledge
2/90. Just focus on today. Each day we build our resilience. Don't worry about tomorrow till you have to deal with it. Remember, as they say "Tomorrow's wind, will blow tomorrow."
