    Hey there,

    I've been on my journey away from porn since October 2016. I had some good streaks (9+ months) and then some relapses here and there.

    Since December 23rd, 2018 I am FULLY committed to never watching porn again and I haven't watched any porn since.

    I've masturbated about 6-7 times this year. I had two streaks of 3 months without fapping, while having a girlfriend (and having sex).

    Now I'm single and I don't masturbate, don't have sex and don't ejaculate. By choice. And it's an amazing feeling. (...and sometimes I feel strong urges, wanting to have sex, too)

    It's been 71 days since I last masturbated. I started implementing a bunch of daily routines that really help me stay focused and I put a lot of emphasis in getting enough, quality sleep. In addition to that I worked on my vision for the future and goals that I want to achieve. Will all that in place, I feel like I can direct my (sexual) energy towards the things I really want to do.

    I never thought I could focus for multiple hours and have so much energy :)

    ...

    At the end of last year, I announced on my FB profile that I would go porn-free for the whole year of 2019 and asked if someone wants to join in.

    Five other guys joined and we've been writing "check-ins" every monday and holding each other accountable. Between all of us together we've watched porn about 5 times total in over 9 months compared to hundreds of times...

    Sincerely,

    Jakob

    That's fantastic! Can you elaborate on the daily routines you mentioned? I feel like that's the key to success (at least for me). Thanks in advance.

    Sure thing. Take a look:

    Time table for full work + learn days:

    07:00 - 09:00: Morning Routine + Breakfast
    09:00 - 12:00: Work + Learn
    12:00 - 12:15: Body Work
    12:15 - 13:00: Making + Eating Lunch
    13:00 - 13:45: Napping
    13:45 - 14:00: Quick Walk or Run
    14:00 - 17:00: Work + Learn
    17:00 - 18:00: Finish the tasks, nice little walk outside and maybe some reading
    18:00 - 19:30: Dinner + Sweets while watching one episode of my favourite show.
    19:30 - 21:30: Lighter taks, research, listening to talks, etc.
    21:30 - 22:45: Evening Routine
    22:45 - 07:00: Night night, sweet little prince.

    Basic principles:

    • Nothing is more important than sleep. It's absolutely essential. Everything else can fuck off in comparison.
      • I turn the lights off at 22:45 latest and get at least 8 hours of quality sleep. This is priority number one!

    • I eat within certain hours (08:00 to 20:00) so my digestive system gets time to do it's work and I'm not constantly busy processing food (and feeling heavy/tired in the process).
      • I don't eat/snack anything inbetween meals. I only drink water or tee (without sugar, honey, etc.).

    • I eat good food. I only eat sweets/sugar within a 30 minute range every day and only after dinner.

    • I try do to one thing at a time:
      • When I eat, I eat. When I work on a task, I work on that one task. When I walk, I walk. When I read, I read...

    • I have an old Nokia phone that I turn on earliest in my lunch break from 12:00 to 13:00.

    • I read and answer my emails once a day.

    • I stick to these routines and I'm open and ready for inspiration to hit me and to take immediate action.
    Morning and Evening Routine (aka I do this twice a day):

    • I reflect my day and plan the next day.

    • Movement, Stretching, Twisting, Exercise for 10 minutes.

    • I speak my vision, my affirmations and my goals out loud.

    • I visualize my desired future and explore it in detail.

    • A brisk 10-15 minute walk.

    • Cold shower.

    • Meditation without a timer.

    Well done! It's much better to be single and not masturbate than to get involved in the wrong couple.

    When I don't masturbate for 2/3 weeks (which has only happened very few times in past years), some drops of semen comes out during night (should I call it night fall ?) .. do you also experience this.. ?

    I only had one wet dream in my life, actually. But that doesn't mean much.

    From what I heard of other men: It's normal to have some wet dreams, especially in the beginning. Your system/body is simply re-adjusting how to "handle" sexual energy/arousal. The amount of time this takes varies from person to person.

    Don't worry and explore what happens after that 2/3 week time frame.
     
  14. I really like your daily routines.
    Thank you for sharing.
    I developed similar routines, but now I can improve them with your tipps.

    Love your routines. Congratulations on such a long streak! Also agree with the sleep, it's the most important thing. I fall asleep at around 10 PM and wake up at 5:30 AM. When I wake up before 6 I feel much more energy during the day.
