    I will also check in and give an update on my journey so far. Things have been good. Exercise and keeping busy have been my savor so far. As I stated before my access to porn is almost non existent which helps tremendously. I've been continuing to journal daily and trying to get into the meditation.

    So something that made me laugh today. For years Ive always told the joke " Procrastination is like masturbation. Feels good at first but, you're just f***ing yourself in the end." I took a whole new look at this today. I have gotten more things done/accomplished in the past 5 day than I have in the past 2 months. I believe the porn and masturbation made me a huge procrastinator. It wasn't that I was PMOing for hours on end everyday I just think PMO took my drive and ambition that i once had. Seeing what Ive got done the past five days now makes me look at it like this. "PMO causes procrastination and you're just f***king yourself either way look at it."

    Great job RTBFOP and love that saying... never heard it before, but it accurately sums up my past, which is where I hope to keep it!

    Update for April 25,2019

    Last night there was a power cut so couldn't sleep well. Felt bit drowsy today but it was overall a good day.

    As far as walking is concerned, I was only able to hit 9k steps.

    PS- Is there a way I can upload image along with my comment?

    Much better day today. Just knowing that the Xbox loophole is closed makes me feel so much better.

    I got up at a decent time today, and have had decent energy for most of the day. Work went well. I stayed on task and actually had my internet shut off basically the entire 8 or so hours that I worked. It helps not having non-porn distractions for keeping focused. Tonight, I am going to the book club that is in my neighborhood.

    I'm headed into the weekend and shouldn't have to be sitting at my computer for long stretched again until Monday, so these next few days should give me a chance to get my streak going. Still, I need to be vigilant, but I'll be around my family quite a bit so there shouldn't be many chances.

    On to the next!

    Check in at day 10 - so far so good. I have been working long 12hr shifts that havent left me the energy to think about pmo. This group is also in the back of my mind, I feel that by relapsing I would be letting myself and others down and therefore keeps me strong - thanks guys!

    My weekend that I had off I filled with seeing mates and my girlfriend and it felt great to be with real people compared with dirty pixels on a screen.

    I generally have more energy, motivation and desire to be social with people. Keep up the fight!

    Quick check in. Strong urge to relapse this morning, so I am on the forum instead of looking for porn.

    Hang in there buddy. Find something to do. To break habit you have to make a habit. Find something you can detour yourself with when those urges hit..

    Fine day. Didn't have much chance to do anything, and I didn't feel many urges at all. On the other hand, I woke up extremely hungover due to drinking a bit too much last night at my book club. It was a very enjoyable time to be with friends - but I've got to be better next time about staying under a limit better. I rarely drink too much - its really only been at this book club lately.

    Therefore, I had to sleep a bit more this morning and killed my productivity for the day, which I wasn't thrilled about. I didn't have any editing to do but had a few household items I had wanted to do while the kids were at school and I lost that chance. My wife and I had a bit of a disagreement as well - but were thankfully able to makeup and all is well tonight as we put our kids to bed. I'm excited to spend the weekend at home with family, and I am extremely grateful for all I've been given. I'm thankful for this group as well!

    Checking in. Looking forward to the weekend. Hope everyone is staying strong in the fight. We are all here because we know what PMO has done/cost us. Remember that when you feel like you're falling or slipping back to the meaningless habit of PMO. Focus on where you want to be and not where you have been. To BREAK a HABIT you have to MAKE a HABIT. I believe just not watching porn is not enough,. You have to find new healthy habits to replace the bad one or bad will take hold after awhile.

    @pourover24 I know what you mean with the drinking to much. I have identified that as one of my triggers. It just lowers my overall discipline level and makes it harder to fight if things get tough. I have set a limit for myself and stick to it. There is nothing wrong with drinking in my eyes. I have a beer with buddies a lot its what we do. But ive found I can have 3 drinks, have a good time, and stay on track. Or i can have 12 drinks and be a wreck. Just find that balance. Hang in there buddy.

    Checking in with update, lasted 4 days but then caved. It felt almost easy for the four days and it was an inability to shake my thoughts off O in the end that cornered me. P didn't seem to be an issue for me, which I thought it would, but I did use it to O as thought Ive failed now so no point not. Feel disappointed with my lack of will power and that ive ended up where I started so quickly. Will just focus on getting past that 4 day wall now.

    Had some unexpected alone time this morning. Naturally, the urge to look at porn and PMO called. I did some yoga instead. It seemed to reset my mental state. I just hopped on here to report in. Now I'm off to do other productive things. Have a great day everybody.

    I just had a wet dream. Right when my libido was at a low i went to sleep and had a dream of me masturbating to a girl sit. I was so uncoscious i couldnt stop myself from orgasm. Does this set me back in anyway? Also my wet dream wasnt me with a girl but me masturbating that cant be good.

    I have had this before - I have dream that I am masturbating and then 'o' which I feel guilty about after. Its just your brain missing your previous habit. The fact that you are getting wet dreams is a good sign - a show of progress. Dont think that this is a set back in anyway.

    Check in - Have had very bad urges today. Have like a week off and no motivation to do anything. This is leading me to feel bored and really want to pmo. I was getting really irritated and opening up browers on my phone. I finally thought that I have to get outside or I am going to do something I regret. I went out on a few mile bike ride and pushed myself hard - have come back feeling good and the urges have gone - especially after the cold shower!
