    every morning when I woke up, I would resort to satisfy myself. For today I am clean, but thinking about sex all day ... I relate everything to sex. I have not even completed 24 hours. I hope not to decay.

    I am going hard mode. I want to stay clean in July. I want to stop checking out strangers and making mental images of them.

    Also, when I wake up in the middle of the night, I feel like rubbing myself with the bed. I want to stay mindful of it, and not fall for it.

    I used to do that often, and it completely destroyed my ability to talk to women properly if I thought that they were attractive. Although I still have serious PMO problems, this habit was squashed when I lost two friends to being an utter creep to then. This happened to me a few times. It really crushes me within, but it has to be seen as a reason not to go back to these fantasies.

    I still have never dated anyone, but I am often able to have good friendships with women because I have learned to view them as people. Achieving this alone is pretty satisfying, knowing that it is possible to become friends with these people. I hope you can succeed in this regard as well.

    This is Day 0 for me. I have told both my parents about my addiction recently, but I find myself lying to them in order to keep viewing pornography. I want to stop this for the month of July. I just received an offer for a paid remote internship, and I need to stay strong because I will be on my computer often for work. I wish everyone the best for the month of July. Anyone here is free to message me. I need the strength to fight this.

    Thanks.
    I have figured that it's not possible to stay completely honest with parents when it comes to sexual matters. It's better to have a buddy with whom we can discuss everything in detail. If we can find someone in real life, who also wants to adopt good habits, then we can stay more accountable.

    Going hard mode. Trying to resist staring at strangers. I guess it's ungraceful to track the movement of someone from one end of the road to another. Yet I indulge in it. Hoping to rein it in. Also, I want to stay mindful when I wake up at night. I don't want my bed or pillow to be a reason of my relapse.

    Today is Day 1 for me, the hardest day. Day 0 is usually easier because I am injured from PMO, but Day 1 is much more stressful because I feel better and can easily slip back into it. My walls tend to double in terms of time, approximately. My next wall would be around Day 2 or 3, then the first week, then the second, and then 4 weeks. I need to abstain so that I can start my job soon without any worries about messing it up due to PMO.

    I will also be alone much more often, which slightly scares me. Although a lot of my hobbies that I pursue alone such as game development and League of Legends will be more feasible, my character will really show in my remote job performance (I am working from home). Thus, it will also be harder for me to meet women and friends. Eh... I just need to keep fighting.

    I hope that everyone in this thread can persist!

    I have the same problem with strangers at times, or people I only know a little. I eventually had the inverse effect of avoiding women that I don't know because I am afraid that, if I look at them, they will think that I am being strange. However, wjenever I do talk to them, it is very rewarding. It is also unrealistic to think that every stranger will think highly of us; I can't expect everyone to like me at first glance, but I can try my best to make that happen.

    For the sleeping issues, I hope that you can get all the help you can, but the only thing that will really stop it is your personal resolve. We all struggle to see not the pain the PMO inflicts upon us, hut rather, remembering the magnitude of what we lose by indulging in it. If we can always remember these values, then the fear of losing these things will always stop us, and valuing our friends and family as well as people in general will obviate thoughts of PMO. This may as well be vague advice, though, because I have given up so many friends and family ties due to PMO and not caring about life. I need help with this very much, but I hope that all of you can keep all your close relationships together.
