    heck man ye - sexuality is completely natural - and wonderful - it's a gift - it's what makes the world turn. It's such a powerful force it gets out of control sometimes. So you just need to remember to do it with love and then usually you can't go far wrong! There's no love in P so that's the first thing that's got to go!

    Sixth day, and oh boy what a difference. I've noticed lots of changes, both positive & negative.

    • Morning wood has returned.
    • Tend to become aroused much more easily.
    • When an erection appears, it's rock hard without any contact whatsoever.
    • I'm much more aware of my wife.
    • My balls hurt like hell.
    • Surprisingly, the temptation to masturbate is very low, and porn desire is zero.
    I want to make it right through April, and hopefully on for 90 days.

    Technically, this is day 3 for me. Not gonna lie, watched some porn videos. Also touched myself and got an erections during my idle time. Clearly my issue revolve around idle time. I am set to begin counseling soon so I'm not gonna beat myself up tho if I fail this week. But I also wanna see how long I can ride this feeling. Question for anyone who has abstained for over a week . What does your body feel like when withdrawing from orgasm? I feel a loose feeling around my groin area and it's causing me obviously discomfort. I'm not into drugs but I imagine these feelings are what a drug user would go through, am I right? How can I counteract this?

    I relapsed last night after 12 days but I don't want to give up on this month yet. I will try to make it to the end with you all. Any tips on not letting a slip up spiral into a full blown relapse? I always get so discouraged that I tell myself who cares and just throw in the towel for a few days but I'm sure it would be better to not relapse so badly

    Brush it off, know your triggers and try to avoid them. Don't trust yourself lol, don't put yourself if situations where you know you might relapse. April is just starting.

    Your decision to not give up and not spiral down out of control are important.
     
  11. Tell yourself that 12 days is progress and challenge yourself to beat that number.

    Very bad night in which I did not get any sleep. Finally caved about 4ish. Not shocked, matter of fact kinda relieved honestly. I will get better sleep tonight and know what I will face later this week. My plan is to last three days from now and see where it takes me. I've done it before so thats working for me. Gotta figure out how to avoid these sleepless nights as obviously it's not healthy. And plan for that day where my mind is searching for the dopa. Working on some new methods to fight. Matter of fact, Ayjaydubya, thats a great quote in which I will live by these next three days. Thanks man

    As guys, we like to put our hand in our pants for relaxation purposes. That relaxation can turn into fondling and possibly something else.

    My question to you guys out there on the streak is whether or not you guys avoid putting your hands in your pants. Sounds like a silly question but hopefully somebody out there knows what I'm talking about

    This is so true, I caught myself doing it the other night, not fiddling just putting it there obliviously. Afterwards realizing that it could be a trigger.
