    Great tip! Expanding my horizons by reading about brahmacharya too, which is much appreciated. Interesting how many parallels there are among human experiences in the pursuit and unfolding of the divine in our lives... Christ said "whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5:28 My heart is detoxifying and hopeful this "reboot" will be the beginning of a lasting change for me & all those going through this process!

    In my experience, there are three basins (gut power, heart power, mind power) become filled with ojas (essence of water, veerya) at 14, 28, and 45 days, respectively. Grosser sexual energy becomes finer in a a process that takes twice as long through each stage. Multiplied by 8 the basic number of chakras in the hindu system, that works out to 360 days or almost 1 year. Incidentally, according to the indigenous sorcerer Don Juan Matus through Carlos Castaneda, one only becomes initiated as a shaman or sorcerer after a year of celibacy. Interesting, no?

  8. Well, I didn't make it far. This and the Christmas one makes around 15 days (first challenge). I'll give some advice/quote that I thought of only after relapse. "In any compromise between food and poison, only death will profit" (any rand). In the same way, any compromise between you and pmo will only profit your eventual destruction. Do avoid my mistake and shut out even the smallest most innocent thoughts that could lead to relapse, even if it seems harmless. Good luck to you all.
    Onward and upward.

    Thank you for the tip, Rakbu! We can all learn and grow from your experience, and hopefully be strengthened by your encouragement and advice. Don't get too down on yourself and don't give up! Get back on the horse and keep riding, things will start to work out in due time. Just don't give up!

    Every time I get a good streak, I feel like I am being tested. I get stronger and life seems to put more obstacles in my path simultaneously.

    Can I still join? I think that's really helpful, not to think about sex...!

    One useful thing that I learned works with practice - lets say that you are on the brink of a relapse, or have begun to actively look up pictures or videos - keep the body completely still, and hands above the waist - because as the mind gets agitated by the images, Ive found that the body gets agitated as well - Ive found that for me, in the time leading up to PMO, these two - mind and body go into a vicious cycle and feed into each other. If I force the body to keep completely still, I can often manage to break the cycle

    I'm in. I actually began 17 days ago. My wife caught me in the dark, PMO'ing on my phone AND with a big bag of cookies and ice cream. There's the SHAME right there. So I got an early start on Xmas day. Count me in on 1/1/16.

    My brothers in celibacy - Ojas, Tejas, and Prana must be balanced to stay balanced. Prana is BREATH. BREATHE DEEPLY. Tejas is FOCUS. STAY MINDFUL. Ojas is HEALTH. PRESERVE THE BODY. Whichever one you need more at this moment is for you to diagnose for yourself.

    Thanks for invitation Pluto, but I.m rather not interested this idea. I'm not ready to tell anyone (man or women) about my addiction. But I wish you all good luck with this idea!
     
  19. There is motivation right there! Thank you mate it seems there is light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how long it is! Pumped up!
