    Day 38/90 No P
    Day 16 No M
    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.

    I want to share something here.

    During fasting months the most hungry you feel is during the last hour or so. I wonder if that's the same for people who are on a strictly 90 day challenge. I wonder if that does that affect your fighting spirit?

    It would be good to know what was your thoughts 10 days before 90 days? And did that affect your mental focus somehow?

    Really happy for you mate.

    Day 83 over. Well, I did it. I set up a date for January 2 - that will be my 88th day. Thanks to the current COVID lockdown, the date will be at one of our houses. I really hope sex will not come up, as I really want to make it to 90 days and there really is no non-awkward way to turn someone down. So hopefully both of us will behave ourselves...I know I will.

    Season 11 [Soaring Eagle experience: The adjustment of mentality after relapse, non-liquidation of semen, and the penis length issue]

    Every day in the rebooting forums we can see brothers that have relapsed, the posts that they make following a relapse is always marked with great remorse. Some brothers would call relapses “battlefield casualty”, I think this is a very good description; rebooting is like waging a battle, we are all brothers in the same trench. We are saddened by the sight of another brother becoming a casualty, this should, of course, spur us into rebooting and to maintain our vigilance. The enemy camp is constantly shelling us with pink shells, the rebooting articles are our bulletproof armor. We must increase our efforts in studying rebooting articles and in doing so increase our awareness and the level of our determination. If you should let down your guard, the next battlefield casualty might be you. When we see inappropriate pictures or videos we must immediately dodge them, we must exercise the same caution to porn as we do towards tigers and incoming arrows, we must be equipped with this kind of awareness. To reboot for good, the awareness must be strong which is obtained through studies. Awareness and vigilance give us the hope to successfully reboot.

    For those brothers that have relapsed, there is no need to be discouraged, nobody can manage to reboot in one try and there will be many failures before success. Before I my successful rebooted I had also failed many times, so many times that I have lost count. I was unable to get out of the vicious circle for well over a decade because at the time I was in a state of ignorance with nobody to guide me and nobody to tell me what to do. Afterwards, having taken up rebooting studies my determination increased. Roughly after a year of studying rebooting articles and health cultivation, my awareness increased by leaps and bounds, through it I gained deeper thinking and understanding. It is under these circumstances that I had successfully rebooted.

    There are 2 types of errors that are easy to make during reboot:
    1. Rebooting without studying about rebooting
    2. Rebooting without cultivating the health

    Another day pmo free. Since the start of this streak I have been avoiding indulging in lust in any way. I cant control the thoughts that come into my head but what I do with them is up to me. In past attempts I wanted to quit pmo while still indulging in lustful fantasies and sexual chat while trying to hookup with women online. This time around I'm surrendering the lust completely. One day at a time.

  20. Yes, the next step is to end porn subs (and porn) completely but after 7 years of trying, I noticed this is a slow process. My 2 AP's and I have decided to do a 30 day P sub free challenge. I created a site on the forum called "30 Day no No P-Sub Challenge." Check it out under challenges if you want and I will put a link below for you to find it more easily. Anyone here on this 90 day challenge is welcome to join us and post how the journey of avoiding P subs is going. Avoiding porn seems easier than avoiding P subs since P subs are everywhere and often trigger real porn and relapses.

    BPH is when the prostate enlarges as you grow older. I believe BPH is what happens when you edge and PMO too much since you are wearing out your prostate (the pump that ejaculates semen). I used to edge for up to 4 hours at a time while looking at porn and this is not natural and keeps your arousal system in a state of hyper alert ready to cum at any time. In my 50's I started having trouble emptying my bladder completely due to the enlarged prostate choking the urethra from it's normal flow of urine. The symptom which is problematic when you have BPH is that you are up every few hours peeing all night which means you get a crappy sleep. I notice that if I even look at porn for a short time now my prostate acts up and makes peeing difficult. Hope that helps you understand the importance medically of what we are doing here on nofap.
