    Hi,

    after the month for God September, in which I watch 3 times porn, but I did not touch myself and a bad failure today, I want to start the quarter for God, from now until the end of this year. Who wants to join me? I will do this time better, no porn at all and no failure after the period.

    After the month for God I see, I can manage to reach this aim! Just join - I have noticed, fighting together is so much easier und so much more successful!!!

    I'm in!

    You started a similar challenge in September and then disappeared. Will you remain faithful in October? Or will you let the cares of the world draw you away from Christ again?

    Hi!

    Thanks for beeing in again!!

    I have avoided use of private internet to avoid to watch bad stuff. To use private internet I have to install first all the stuff like modem, cabels, to make me the use of internet more difficult. But I will be stronger and be here more again - to help others as you do.

    So it is quite similar to my first challenge or kind of challenge - but as you see, the period is now extented. Maybe you can guess what the next period, starting January 2019, will be. First time, I see a real way out of it, the way of extending periods is a way of good motivation. Because I am celibate, it is hard fight. Beginnging this october, I failed (after the designated month), but I reached the phase where my body started to revolt. Very seldom I managend this phase, but now I will again. Until end of this year, no failure, no watch of bad stuff. No failure after this quarter and a new (one-year-)period, not starting with a counter of zero again. After this year (this will be so hard, this will be kiling me, but I will go through) there will be a last longer period - and then I will be out!!! Cause after four years beeing strong, the addiction will be weakend - I never will be out of it totally, I will be vulnerable as long as I live, but the addiction will fade more and more. That's the plan. Christ makes me firm for this, your beeing here makes me firm, plan confirmed. I never want to leave Christ again.

    I'm up for the challenge. Let's "spur each other on toward love and good deeds..." Let's stand together and stand up for Jesus.

    How are we all doing with this challenge? I'm finding it so helpful visiting this site and reading various testimonies and encouragements. One of the biggest benefits has been the reminder that I'm not alone with these struggles. "Encourage each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching" (Heb.10:25)

    Day 7, no real urge so far. Maybe it start at day 14 or day 21. But I keep beeing alerted, the urge can come unexpectedly, all of a sudden. I managed to avoid some triggers, I am bit stronger than before. I hope, I will get through this month.
    You are helping me, thanks a lot!!!

    I'm finding out how important it is log in to this site as often as possible - to be reminded that we share the same vulnerabilities and to stand together. As soon as I become complacent, develop a mindset that whispers 'you're doing ok', then my guard is down and I'm susceptible to deception and a fall. We CAN do this - together!

    I've been doing daily check-ins with multiple APs for over a year. Life-changing.

    Isaiah 43:16-21
    This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements together... “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. NIV

    Hi champs!

    I have been disqualified following last week's fall -- But that doesn't mean I will stay down! I'm praying that all of you will indeed experience victory starting last week all the way till the end of the year! How sweet will the beginning of the year be like when all of you finish well! :emoji_grin:

    It is no coincidence we're meeting here together. God led us here. God has heard our prayers and desire to be liberated. His leading, His Spirit and we are His people. What a blessing! I'm so tired of giving in to my flesh. There's a much better PMO free life waiting around the corner. Let's do this together. I'm praying for you. Let's not forget it's a battle: "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Eph6:12

    That is not exactly the rule of my threat, because it is not a challenge, but a quarter for God, meaning you are still in (if you want), meaning you have got to continue to fight until the end of this year. Nobody gets out of our quarter cause of failure, only by choice. How successful we are we can check by checking the PMO tracker at the end of the year. If you reckon back my tracker, it does not start at 1rst october. Same for Bob's tracker. I did a September for God, here and in the catholic group. In the catholic group another (AECJosh) joined and failed mid of the month sept. But now, he is day 27! So he is better than I am and will finish his month in 3 day!!

    If you want to stay a full quarter, you have to restart now and persist until mid of Jan 2020. There is no surrender nor withdrawal, if you don't want. Jesus Christ has already won, we have to join Him and His winning team by alway fighting for Him! This is the idea of our quarter. Setting some milestones for our following, making it more manageable. You can restart always for God, so you can here. Just continue your (and our) fight. So if you want to stay in our group, I would appreciate it!

    Close to fall today because I watched yesterday such superfluous kind of scandal-art-movie in tv for some minutes, watching same bad pictures. It was no P, but it was triggering me for bad feelings. Thanks to my accountability partner, I am strong again and managed this phase without falling down.
    Thanks to nofap.com, great site! great community!

    I failed, this zero hurts really bad :( - I was totally a mess this night until now, completly off. I managed the urges last night and then the day after, but this night, the following night, I lost my mind: It was not only relapsing, it was a almost complet selfdestruction by trying to make the urge easier by watching bad stuff - I knew that this does not work. I am more down than after the relapse before. I tried to get through in an easy way, without a good fight and lost so much :mad:. So, I am at zero again, not only the day counter is at zero, it is my fight, my strategie, my plan.

    But I will continue this fight.In the end, I will win. :) No more failure until the end of this year. Thanks God I fixed the rules some days before I relapsed so I can stay in my Quarter.

    "But if we confess our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away." 1John1:9 Decide to get serious with God again. Spend time repenting and getting clean. God is on your side. He hates your sin, but LOVES YOU! I find praying through Psalm 51 really helpful - several times if necessary.
