    29 days.
    I actually wonders why it's working for me.
    Often I feel the thought "Oh come on, just typ in your favorite youtube user and see if she has a new video".
    In the past I indeed typed in something in a search field and kept myself watching for an amount of time. Believing that it couldn't harm me. But in the meanwhile I kept myself bonding to stuff.

    The reason I keep myself to my promise, is indeed I made a promise to myself.
    And I know I am giving myself a chance to change.
    And it's quiet embarassing to the others here on nofap to having admit "I couldn't keep my promise".

    But of course, the deepest reason is that my brain knows for sure that there is a much better life without spending time with P. The keyboard is the boundary at this moment. A boundary that I can respect, or that I can cross.
    I choose to respect the boundary.

  3. Day 6 of guarding my internet searches is behind me and successful. The reason this is important to me is because when I started nofap this time around I found it relatively easy to stop searching for porn. The browser I used to use for porn, I now use for nofap, so after the first few weeks staying away from P-sites actually became the easy part. What surprised me is that my internet searches throughout the day which had no sexual intent often lead to provocative or sexual searches. These weren't necessarily p-subs, but they were sexual enough to be well inside the danger zone. It was uncharacteristic for me to spend so much time looking at provocative material without the intent to pmo too, and it became a distraction to my goals for the day. It also scared me that it would lead to pmo. The difficult part of this journey for me now is controlling my own thoughts. I keep having highly sexually charged thoughts especially in the mornings when I wake up. In a way I feel like the thoughts are happening to me, but at the same time I feel like I'm allowing them. Like there's a line and it's blurry and hard to tell where it is in my thoughts that I have control. This practice of controlling what I'm allowing into my mind via the internet is a huge first step of gaining more self-discipline over my thoughts. Garbage in/garbage out as the old saying goes, so let us be the guardians of what we consume.


    Congratulations on 29 days of respecting the keyboard boundary Roady, you're doing awesome!!

    It's - actually - not porn that makes us feel bad, it's our use of the mouse and keyboard that screw up our lifes.

  8. You're doing great, man!

    Day 8 is down and facing day 9 like a champ. This practice of controlling my Google searches is helping me with own thoughts as well. I find myself using the same mental processes to decide what thoughts not to dwell on that I've been using to decide what sites not to visit.

  15. Today (day 10) was a fairly easy day; only had to check myself a couple times. I can already feel some of those bad habits fizzling away. Here's to being ever-vigilant. Stay strong brothers!

    Day 0: I did good and mostly stayed offline today.

  19. Funny how different today is from yesterday. Yesterday was one of my easiest days, barely had to keep myself in check at all. Today is just the opposite, my spidey senses are going off the scale trying to keep myself honest. So far I'm remembering my true intent but the day's far from over. Wish me luck.

  20. Day 0: Had really bad judgment the last couple days because I haven't been getting sleep. Had little control over the sleep factor, just had to do the best I could which wasn't good at all unfortunately. Today is better, should make it to day 1 tomorrow morning.
