    Hey, don't let up now, you've worked very hard to get to 300+. Yes, be very careful with those p-subs, you know they can kill a streak.

    It's good to post somewhere daily, whether here and/or your journal.

    Praying for you, man... Just try not to look at that stuff, I know it's not porn but we all know how one leads to the other! It activates the same circuits in the brain, same neural pathways, I guess. Focusing on work is actually a good idea, just do the best you can with what you have available and don't sweat it too much if possible! Wish you all the best, good luck! :)

    You are so close to the coveted goal of 1 year!!! You can do it man. I don't know what deadlines are like on that video, but manage your mind and mind your behaviours. Stay strong. We're here for you.

    We are disclosing animals, wired for unburdening. It’s what we do as a species.

    This is a great place for disclosing & unburdening!

    Thanks for the support.. I ended up outsorcing the gig and am paying someone $250 to do the gig for me.. I had already pulled all the selects of the best shots and gave them my hard drive that also has the leaky OS that the porn blocker lets some websites lets slip by.. so its out of my house and out of my head.. still stressed that they wont do a good job.. but we will find out..

    I think that was a very good decision, even though it cost you some money - but hey! Personal progress is better than money - and you just showed yourself that you have the brains and the decision making skills necessary to evolve.
    Congratulations, now research and get a new, working P blocker!! :D

    Not sure why is it such a big deal, if you really decide to not masturbate, then you don't fap. Which I'm doing already for 5 days, no problems at all. Maybe I'll change my mind after couple of weeks, but we'll see that.
     
  19. Don't be yoo confident. You might be caught offguard.

    i write this having relapsed about 10 minutes ago. What i want to do with this is give the people still in this some motivation. To be quite straight up i got to 16 days but looked every couple of days or so but didn't O. As i sit here there is no great relief of having done it or any kind of stress relief but simply nothing. I haven't gained anything by relapsing but a zero on my day counter. I just have nothing and have gained nothing from it. Before this i've had urges to do it so bloody bad to the point where i thought if i do it it's gonna be amazing but there's none of that just this empty feeling. I guess what i'm trying to say is a relapse to the end isn't really all your mind makes it out to be and to tell you the truth it seems like its gonna be better than it really is.

    Secondly have you guys ever watched the film limitless where the guy takes the pill and can access 100% of his brain? Well there's a scene in it where he first takes the pill, walks into his apartment and just gets shit done without even thinking about it; the sink of dirty dishes? yeah he just cleans them without a second thought of how boring it is or how long it's gonna take. That just doing shit is the one thing i have always noticed on a 14+ day streak and it usually hits on the 14 day mark exactly well you know how i mentioned during this streak that i looked but didn't finish? Yeah that getting stuff done feeling didn't happen this time. To put it simply if you're still looking and watching then you might aswell just go ahead and fap all the way. Sounds kind of destructive to some guys but lets be frank here we are doing this to get benefits from it and if you are still looking and watching then you're half assing this and just going through pain without any reward from it. Its the combination of no pmo that creates the benefits; not wacking off alone isn't gonna do shit for you if you're still looking at that poisonous shit.

    For anyone considering just don't even bother, it's just gonna be some disappointing bullshit that you think what was even the fucking point of doing it and even if you only look it's gonna screw you up in the long run.
