    Good afternoon all,

    I've been off of this site for a while, because I relapsed back to PMO sites. It's amazing how I convince myself it's natural, a good release, the dopamine kick is ok, and many other things. At this point in my journey, I am not strong enough to not be attached to it. I am addicted and it is instant gratification. In addition it is not a habit I want. So here is my plan and the reasons for it:

    1. Use to set up a porn blocker. It is free. If anyone has trouble with the instructions, just message me and I'd be glad to help if I am able.
    The reason for this is that I know my willpower is not that strong at this moment and clicking on a site that is blocked makes me think about the fact that I am making the decision to unblock it by typing in a password and making a change. Hopefully this extra step will give me a pause to re-think and realize my habit and addiction.

    2. Meditate instead of Masterbate. The insights that may arise after meditation are helpful in all parts of my life and not harmful like PMO is for me at this time.

    That's all.

    I am not going to try and find another thing to do instead. I have done that and it is helpful to a point. I exercised, wrote, cleaned ect. At this time I feel that all of those were distractions for trying to "figure out" why I was addicted to PMO in the first place. This time I am just going to sit and watch all the stuff that comes up in my mind without judgement. At least that's that plan. Maybe the grip will be loosened.

    Anyone want to be an join me and also be an accoutability buddy? 90 days to start and weekly check in's either on the forum or PM.

    Welcome back bro! Giggles :D
    Hitting 40 days is one thing, but reaching 50 days, MAN, "5X" is a number on another level! I can totally feel your pain now as my days seems longer than usual for some reason.
    This upcoming week will be critical, I don't want to lose my game here. We will see.

    Hello Everyone. Joined NoFap recently. Have been trying the Brainbuddy app for a while. After trying many times and failing, this time I am holding up so far. Reading the book "Your brain on porn" helped as well. Understanding the science of addiction has helped a lot. This time talking with my wife has helped as well.

    I have taken up the 90 day PMO challenge as well. On Day 18 of the PMO challenge. Urges are going down. Flat lining a bit. NoFap website has helped tremendously in understanding this.
    Happy to join anyone who is doing the challenge as well.

    Hi Vs16, I'll join you in the challenge. I think I'm 3 days in.

    Congratulations volt. Thank you for the 90 day summary, it was very informative and encouraging. I really liked the fact that you saw a lot more confidence. Addictions are anchors IMO, being freed from that anchor builds confidence because your pushing your comfort level.
    180 days? I only ask this b/c I got to 130 or so after a 120 day goal. The problem was that I fell right back into the PMO and the justification in my head. I thought the rewiring of my brain would loosen that addiction a little but the addiction force is strong in me I guess. I'd love to hear more about the continuous journey.

    Thank you.

    Alright Real, just starting the journey again. Lot's of triggers but working on breathing through.
    Thank you for asking.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it. You're right about the anchor analogy. For years I always felt like something was holding me down from being the best version of myself, and I thought it was my weight. Never in a thousand years would I have guessed that porn could do what it does to our brains. After losing the weight and not seeing any major confidence or anxiety improvements I knew there was something else I needed to fix. Now that I have "removed the anchor" I am free to travel the sea of life and explore it's vast wonders!

    Yeah, I'm going to update my counter to 180. This go around I want to cut out the MO completely to have a true hard mode. I'm done with self-pleasure and robbing myself of the simple joys in life. Reaching orgasm should be with a partner, shared, not alone out of frustration. Stage one is complete, onto stage two!

    Now we are back onto the starting line. I once thought I was invincible, but not...I almost felt like I could take over the world and quit being a slave of this thing, I failed.
    I learn, hopefully, to limit my internet usage starting day 40 from now on until my urges subside. Maybe I should seriously consider finish all my work at school and not turn on my home desktop at all at 5X days.

    If this time fails again, I swear, I might as well terminate the internet contract with Comcast. How about that?!!

    I'm frustrated, pissed, on what I've done! NO MORE!! I'm tired of this never ending remorse.

    Come one, don't feel bad, most guys jerk off 10+ times a week (some do that per day). So you came after 40 days, you're way ahead of the masses who are hooked for life.

    Thanks for the encouragement, but the fact that I've been fighting this for years and I should've know better. Plus I'm 24, I would consider this as a milestone if I were 18, but I understand the struggle.

    Anyhow, I know I will pull it through this time! I will be seeing my doctor some time this summer. This time, I'm going all in. So Comcast, you better pray I don't contribute to your quarterly revenue loss because if I fail, our relationship is over.

    Sometimes, I fell for the same tricks my mind has been playing with me. Not this time, I'm going all in, I even wrote a "House of Conduct" that I will not be staying in the house alone and keep my bedroom solely for sleep/rest purposes and some other things that will help me to avoid tricks that my mind have been playing in the past few years.

    I got mad this time, and certainly I will pass 100 days at the least. Yall thinking I'm bluffing, but I say we will see what happen. I'm dare to ask my doctor to offer me something to shut down my hormones, if this is what it takes. I have to overcome this and my enemy will not be winning this time.

    I'm all in - 365 days challenge!
