    It's almost a month since I opened the site and it's not because I slipped up. It's just, I've been busy. I'm not going to arrogantly say, I've been to busy to masturbate but setting my focus on the things I want to achieve (the things I know are within my reach) has pushed me forward.
    In the next few days, I would have reached the 100-day mark without visiting a porn site or touching myself. Now I'm very aware of how easy it can be for one to slip up, I did over 200 days before and had to start again.
    I think my biggest lesson from all this, is not to put too much pressure on myself. Some people might call it, "not giving a [email protected]$K!" but depression is one of the big triggers. There are other things I would love to achieve, like being able "to talk to girls" or stay away from prostitutes.
    I'm not perfect but I take what I can get. Even if it's taking a cold shower, making my bed or finishing a client's job on time. These small victories, I appreciate them because all I have to do is take a look back and see, I've come a long way. I'm not the man I used to be.

    That's a good point.
    Need to release some "happy chemicals" [dopamine; doing an activity we enjoy] or do something for others = contentment-happiness.
