    Day 45/90
    Feeling sad today. I have aserious issue of being serious all the time.
    I can't be myself with people, I gotta pretend and be some one else, its just hard to be myself.

    Day 64/90

    Less urges today but still so attracted to women, better mood. I've started reading my own journal from the start, will carry on tomorrow, some other threads helped me too. I'll read a few pages of the Easy method book after this post.

    I'm trying to view the bigger picture. The past few days I've been focusing on my failure related to diet. It's taken too much space in my head and I wasn't even grateful for all that I've improved so far.

    - I've been off PMO for over two months.
    - I've been studying languages daily for 78 days.
    - I've been meditating daily for 60 days.
    - I've been practicing yoga daily for 32 days.

    Last time I had a streak that long was in 2017, so I shouldn't make light of it, I have a real chance to stick with it now, gotta make the most of this.
    Not to mention I'll go mad if I fall back again, hopeless. Gotta keep building on what I've started. I'll sort the diet out eventually, I'm going to take it easy for now, just focusing on eliminating fast-food and soda for a week, small goals, build momentum. I'll also focus on the things I feel I can control right now and which will make me feel better: sleep, studying more, running, gratitude. If I put all my attention on something I feel out of my control it's only natural I won't feel good.

    I like to think of my current struggles as levels, that somehow if I don't get past these struggles I'll be stuck in life and not move forward to my next level. It actually really makes sense, if you're striving to change, it's because you feel something is holding you back. I also think of my own values and the values of this society, do I want to be a mindless consumer? Do I want to say yes to the disgusting stuff the porn industry is producing? Or to the fast-foods and other toxic things? I'd like to be the embodiment of my values.

    I totally agree! This book helped change my mentally towards wealth and life. It’s probably the best financial/self improvement book I have read. It’s good to be somewhere on the internet where people are sharing positivity.

    Day 65/90

    Feeling angry/frustrated today.

    I went running earlier than usual today and I forgot the feeling of doing something early and being ahead of my day, that's a good feeling for sure. I should do that more often, especially right now with discipline going a bit down.

    I'd like to touch a bit on something I read today. That, basically, doing good, following the truth, is easy, while doing wrong, following illusions, is hard. We're just too blind to really see it, even though we intellectually know it, we don't have that knowledge fully in us. For instance: You follow your instinct/habit to PMO, and as a result you suffer, you fall for the illusion that it will make you feel good, that there's still something in there for you, even though you intellectually know through repetition that it isn't the case. It is the hard path, the path of suffering. On the other hand there is the easy path, without this suffering, of feeling good, reaping many benefits, which is to abstain from PMO, yet we don't see it. So we have to come closer to seeing and understanding that. If we can then really there is no choice, it's a no-brainer, like it's so clear during "post-nut clarity", it's obvious at this moment that it's an illusion. But if we don't understand that then we keep suffering until we understand. So I have to remind myself frequently why I follow this path, and what happens if I don't. As long as we think there is something we're missing on from PMO it's difficult, if we absolutely see that it is only suffering then it's easy.
