Day 1 done
Ugh, so tomorrow will be day 0. this is now the third time I will be attempting this challenge. Maybe I should back scale to do the 30 day challenge instead of the 90 day just cause I cant even hit 20. First time I attempted this challenge I hit 12 days and the second time I hit 17. So I guess there is some progress there, but I have a long journey ahead of me before I can do the 90 day challenge... I am so sorry to disappoint you boys, but I am afraid I have failed and I must take a step backwards to figure somethings out. I wish you all the best.
Look man a step at a time right. Dont look at how big or small the challenge. I exactly know what you mean by it. It's not that you were knocked down 100 times , its about how you got up 100 times right.
That what makes for d fighting spirit.
Relapsed at day 103 . This is so depressing . I thought that I would never have to come back to this challenge but I thought wrong unfortunately .Tho the good thing is that I have lost 10kgs during my 103 days of noFap(from 82kgs to 72kgs) and this has been my longest streak which satisfied me because my longest streak before that was 7 days .Luckily I still haven't broken my no-porn streak .Time to climb on the wall again.
Day 1/90. Never feels good to be starting again but got through the first day.
IKR , this is Day 1 for me as well , going back to day 1 from a 90+ day streak is sad.
I had 112 days earlier this year. I know the feeling. But we can do this together! Never give up!
It would be good to share our experiences. The reason being that I did find a strong correlation between controlling your urges and eating less.i started eating moderately as part of religious discipline initially and what I noticed was that eating when you are hungry only and in moderation helps with headaches. I also found in the process that it does give you a degree of control of your urges.
It was interesting to see that you lost 10kg.
It would be interesting to know the thought process and what causes a relapse at that stage? It would be good for people who will be trying to make to that stage to start with..
I found that you become complacent and you let the guard down , once you are that far in. The initial vigilance and awareness, at the start, fades away and you take unnecessary risks.
Day 0, Day 49 Last PMO
Day 5/90! Self negotiation is such a bother.
Absolutely , eating less isn't exactly the thing , maintaining your calorie intake by only eating healthy food is important , plus eating high dopamine releasing foods like pizzas also desensitize your brain and the dopamine craving increases which increases your urge to Fap . And the proof of this is a few of my relatives visited my place during christmas and they're still there , that time I ate all the junk food I could find and then that somehow led to a relapse.
Major slip up involving alcohol with friends the night before. Since I don't really drink anymore it may have affected me more than usual.
Anyway, no excuse here - the issue I find with myself is that I actually wanted it at the time and of course rationalized my decision in a way that sounded similar to "I have already fixed my issue once, I can afford to fuck up because I can fix it again". I don't have to explain why this way of thinking is so wrong.
I guess I will have to start 2021 with an even bigger fight! I don't believe I have ereased all progress or all I have learned. But I need to recognize I need to stay consistent and that means LONG TERM consistent
Have a great day everybody
My major slip up have been anxiety related. Being very private person always and being over obsessed with doing the right thing and pleasing people was what was at the core of my anxieties. So one day I said to myself "f... everyone and be yourself". Not in a bad way I took lot of pressure of me and it was very empowering.
Everything has a cost and even doing the right thing attitude has too. And you must be brave enough to bear it. But at the same time you must connect deep within you and understand what us going on and respond and act accordingly.
Although I am firm believer of Shia Islam and always will be but I love this quote because it rings true to the heart. I think it's from Bible
Salvation lies within.
In Islam we say that the one who hasn't recognized himself will not recognize God.
Have a nice day.
Thank you for typing it up, I will do this
I am really glad that you find it useful. Please feel free to ask if I can be of any assistance. Respect.
Thanks for that. I think although I was eating less but I was still eating high calorie foods and that was making me less hungry and that is not what I wanted. So what you said about calories and dopamine releasing foods does make sense.
I think in general exercise and water will play a crucial role. As well as you work I.e. physical vs office based.
One thing I have noticed also is that the urges are strongest for some ppl in the morning . I found that to be related to bowel movements.
