    A bit over 6 days . This has been my cleanest abstinence yet ; there has been no indulging in porn of any kind and I feel good with that. I've been having slight urges to m but nothing major. Mentally and emotionally I've been feeling a bit out of whack but I think that's to be expected. One day at a time.

    Completely agree! I got complacent and overconfident in being able to ride off urges! I learned the hard way, but next time I will be more prepared

    Day 2/90. A pretty good day. Anxiety is getting better, I’m still working out and trying to lose weight. Things with gf are good. Looking forward to hanging with a friend tomorrow.

    I have got to day 60 and yesterday I clicked on a picture of Carol vordermanwho is a British tv presenter. I then continued to look on pictures of other women for about 10 minutes. They were porn substitutes and I feel that although I didn’t masturbate I was on a very slippery slope so I need to qualify here, for myself, that in future searching for images of women breaks my streak. But, I am allowing my streak to go on but if I do this again it will be broken.

    Missed updating daily as I was a bit busy. Being busy is the best way to get rid of this dirty thing. I hope I will get rid of this once and for all.

    Don't go hard on yourself, that's the secret to keep going. I have lost a lot of trials this year, but in total I used to masturbate 365 days, and when I went back to check I found that it was 106 for the whole 366 days. Yes, I know it's a big number but still looking at the bright side of things. You are here trying, and that's the main point. You will get there. Let's do it together, I am at day 0 too. Let's keep on going then.

    Dear friends,

    I have made it to 90 days of not M'ing to P - and also not O'ing - so this will be my last post here. Thank you so much for all the encouragement, thought provoking discussions and occasional, necessary tough love. It took me around 14 months on this forum to get to this achievement, after still many more years of trying to quit PMO on my own without any support. I don't think I could have achieved this without the support here.

    This was not the super clean 90 days I was aiming for before, because this time around, I did allow myself to take occasional peeks at P-subs or things that were basically P, provided that I wouldn't M to it. This for the simple reason that I wanted to reach a goal that I knew I could reach before the end of the year. However, doing this also taught me a ton of things about the nature of P and P-subs. Basically, I learned that P itself has no intrinsic sexiness or attractiveness if you don't give it that value. For example, I used to as soon as I saw some nudity online almost automatically put my hands in my pants and start touching myself. For 90 days, I didn't do that, and I found that most of the times I would look at something, it wouldn't even excite me physically - so it was actually the touching of myself and thus putting in the energy that used to make those images sexy, not so much the images themselves. And even on the occasions where I would come across something that turned me on, I found that not acting on that excitement made it go away quickly, and I learned that there's no need whatsoever to act on this kind of excitement.

    Now that I have learned that I can actually look at P(-subs) without getting excited, I do want to take a next step and really force myself not to look at them at all for at least 30 days. That's the next challenge for me, since obviously I still have some automatic patterns that make me look at these things, even though I take no pleasure out of them anymore, and that is something I need to get out of my system, otherwise it might still lead me back on the wrong path. However, I do want to give to all of you as an important advice that I think you do need to get yourself to a place where P has no power over you, and you can look at it and see it for what it is - something utterly useless. I know this is a very hard thing to do, and there's an element of playing with fire - it can and will go wrong from time to time - but you need to reprogram your brain so that you start thinking of P not as something that you want, but as something you don't want. Well, at least that for me was the key that I needed to find.

    Thanks so much again and see you all around on the forum here!

    Day 13/90!

    I started to go for walks as much as I could recently. I am trying to form a new habit and I can go outside on weekdays (there is lockdown on the weekends). Just something small like a 30 min walk made me feel really good for some reason. Enjoy the little things guys.
