    Half way. I thought I'd be more excited but I'm actually just have a really rough day yesterday and today. Urges are hitting me pretty hard, which hasn't happened to me in several weeks. It's funny the thoughts that come into your brain trying to rationalize a relapse. In fact, it's even a little scary how LOGICAL your addicted brain can be in trying to get you to take a hit from the PMO bong. "45 days is a great streak! You can start over tomorrow. It won't make that much of a difference. You're already feeling urges that are too strong, you need a release and then you can start over. It'll be easier next time. You'll do better next time."

    Geez! That's not my goal! My goal is 90 days! Every step towards porn is a mistake. Even the slightest thought in that direction is NOT in line with our goals. I'm not trying to be hard on anyone, I know it's very difficult. I'm just trying to be clear with my own brain what is and isn't acceptable. Fishing isn't acceptable. Fantasizing isn't acceptable. Edging isn't acceptable. ANYTHING that's like porn is NOT in line with my goal and ANY STEP in that direction is NOT WHAT I WANT. Don't tell me otherwise, brain, you don't know what I need right now.

    09/90 I'm a little horny, but nothing serious. I feel progress, my brain is no longer flooded with porn.

    ...okay.....DAY 8. I still feel the same. No changes after having quickie sex on day six. I was expecting to feel sluggish or drained but I still got my energy. Asked a few people in this challenge. After reading their response I'm content and resuming my journey. Keep on fighting guys.

    Day 2/90

    Your success is not measured by how high you can climb, but how high you can bounce back when you hit the bottom.

    Gotta bounce back.
  7. 9/90 today. Some days are easier than others. We must build an inner resilience to get us through the tough times. Keep going, friends!
  8. Yes it's amazing how our brains will start coming up with these goofy arguments just to try and get its little dopamine hit. There was actually a funny but truthful thread on here awhile back where folks listed such sayings - they're quite common I think. What I believe we have to do is just be wise to what's really going on, and to not take such thoughts seriously. It helps knowing that if you just kind of laugh them off, they'll dissipate in time, and your deeper-down, more grounded thoughts will come right back. Stick with your streak, buddy, you're doing awesome.

    That's so recognisable. Sadly, I have yet to reach that point far on in the process and get over it. But this time I will.

    44/90.. I'll be past the halfway mark on Saturday!

    Up until now I've had urges but it's been fairly easy to withstand them. I think it is in large part due to a mindset shift that I've experienced, helped a lot by Mark Queppet's material.

    Whenever I feel an urge, I get thoughts like "PMO is pathetic, I don't want to go back to that", "that's not me anymore", "I am going to have great experiences with real women in stead of staying at home jerking off". I just have this feeling that at the end of these 90 days, a fulfilling real world love life awaits..

    One big hint that points in this direction, is that I am starting to feel more attraction towards the women I encounter in every day life. It's making me realize that those feelings had pretty much fizzled out during the past years, due to me falling further and further down the PMO rabbit hole.

    5 days done. Just need to get one more, hope to just do what I need to do today to stay away from pmo. Just today, that’s it. It’s not worth it today. Maybe tomorrow, but not today. Right here, right now is where we live our lives. Pmo thoughts are simply memory, they are not real.
