    Day 11!

    Thought I'd share the video that first taught me about this addiction. I had first learned about NoFap a few years ago on Reddit, but I didn't truly believe that PMO was a problem or could even be an addiction. It wasn't until I saw this video by Terry Crews that I realized just how wrong I was. PMO addiction is real and is devastating. Once I saw Terry's video and did more research, I learned that I myself was an addict. Have been for nearly all my life. Terry Crews has been an inspiration for me ever since he came public with his "Dirty Little Secret." I hope one day to meet him and thank him for all he's done for me and many others.

    Just found this challenge after "officially" joining NoFap a few weeks ago. I've been haphazardly attempting to reach the 90 day mark for the past year with limited success. I reached 40 days last fall but have been struggling ever since. The COVID pandemic certainly hasn't helped in the recovery process. I've had some pretty bad relapses and binges over the past couple of months. I'm currently on Day 2 now. Here's hoping all of us can overcome this addiction and achieve our goals.

    Welcome! It's nice to have someone else join. It was getting a bit lonely here. :emoji_stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    The pandemic has definitely made things tough. Especially for PMO addicts. Being stuck inside all the time takes a toll. One thing that seems to help a lot of others is taking up a "quarantine hobby." Reading, writing, gaming, musical instruments, daily exercise, etc. Something that will keep your mind off PMO. I've taken up guitar as my hobby and am hoping it helps.

    Stay strong!

    Day 2: Back to Speedy. I got lazy this weekend and stayed in bed most of the day Saturday. That's a HUGE trigger for me and led to a relapse. It's hard not to beat myself up, but I know that I need to keep fighting. This addiction cannot keep winning.

    Love the DC Universe and it's nice to be alongside such a supportive challenge host (that's you @CLaYFiRC!)
    I have fallen into the Lazarus pit in the past, but no more. It's complicated, my ties to the Bat Family, but not for long.

    Day 3 is in the books and Day 4 is wrapping up. Had a family emergency two nights ago and I was the most stressed I've been in a long time. Thankfully all of my family members are back home in one piece. I've been dealing with the stress and aftermath with exercise, cold showers, and actively talking to my friends and family members rather than using PMO like I traditionally would. My weekend is on the horizon so I'm gearing up for some urge surfing and replacement habits (exercise, cooking, reading, video games, phone calls/video chats with friends and family). Here's hoping my next update will be about reaching the one week mark.

    I've been wanting to put together some sort of DC Universe challenge for awhile now, and your Batman challenge inspired me to finally give a a try! Tried not to make it a Justice League challenge, but it kind of ended up that way toward the end. :emoji_laughing:

    Sorry to hear about your family emergency. Just try your hardest not to let the stress get to you. The addict in you knows when you're stressed or emotionally vulnerable, and he will take any opportunity to try and overcome you. Looks like you have a pretty good plan going forward though. Keep at it!

    Day 3: Feeling more like myself after Saturday's setback. I have a mini vacation from work coming up after tomorrow's shift, but I luckily will not be home alone for it. It's going to be nice to get a break from the stresses of work and life in general.

    Here's some daily motivation to help get you through today:

    Day 4: Tomorrow I'll be ranking back up!

    Here's one of my favorite Superman moments. This scene right here is what helped make me a Superman fan for life.

    And today makes 7. I plan on posting updates each week at the minimum. I've noticed that I'm dwelling a bit too much on the number of days in the streak.

    I'm doing my best to remember this adage:

    "Don't count the days; make the days count."
