    Closing in on two days--yeah!!
    When you are completely off balance, so much so that you are certain you will topple over—you bring the paddle down hard on the water’s surface, the way ducks bat their wings. You will feel your kayak right itself. Only by moving in the direction you least trust can you be saved.

    Yes...this is wrong my friend....and you know it, otherwise you wouldn't be asking. This is called pSubs - anything that is close to, or reminds you of past porn related thoughts or behaviours - if it creates longing that leads to craving it is wrong. When I first started out I deleted my porn stash but made a subconscious deal with myself to keep my pSubs going. But after relapses several times realised pSubs are like a gateway drug to the addict....we need to fully clean our environment to completely remove all temptations. Good luck bro.

    No...start again fresh today my friend...doesn't have to be from the beginning of the month...why wait any longer? Learn why you relapsed...then recommit to your yourself...then start again. This time you'll do better. Each time you fail start again as soon as possible. Good luck friend. Keep going and keep posting here.

    Thank you. I'm going to give it another serious shot. Just One month at first. That will be hard enough.

    Day 3 and Going Strong

    Here are my key strategies for keeping this commitment:

    1. Activity/Productivity. For me, there is more than a little truth in the "idle hands" idiom. I need to stay active, focused, and mentally engaged at work so that I have neither the time nor interest for PMO or anything else.

    2. Workouts. I have seven consecutive days of 90+ minute workouts, which has me feeling very sore, but the stress relief that it provides is also critical.

    3. More Time with My Family. It seems too simple to be true, but scheduling and spending more time with my family is an easy, joyful, awesome way to fill in the "empty space" where I devolve into this madness.

    Good luck to all.

    Hey warriors. I'm in. I am sick of this sick addiction. I really need to prove myself that I have control over myself.

    Im all in about the P thing. Im on day 15 without P. Working on building my self asteem and ridding myself from shame and embracing the fact that sexuality is natural and at the core. Masturbation - its not a sin. Orgasm without ejaculaion is underrated. Kundalini Yoga

    Well, aside from extending my relapse by another day, I also managed to kick-off No PMO April with a lengthy morning session. Booya. Shooting myself in both feet at the beginning of the race is the way I've tended to roll. Seems I wasn't done with my self-sabotage.

    What I've come to see about PMO is its pussifying effect. I am a weaker, softer and duller man because of it. Just like with my lifelong pot habit, the change in my personality is noticeable even to me. The unholy alliance of pot and porn has robbed me of things very precious to me and I want them back. My integrity. My authenticity. My strength, courage and resolve, to name a few. They took from me what it means to be a man.

    So, I may have relapsed over the weekend a mere 12 days into my PMO-free journey, but I'm back on my feet and I'm coming after what is rightfully mine. The little fucktard demons of PMO can no longer have my manhood. And no matter how many time I get knocked down on my way to their keep, I'll not waiver in my pledge to complete my mission.

    Onward...
