    Hey guys, I'm new here. I've been listening to speakers like Jordan Peterson, and he talks about getting one's life on track and becoming extremely efficient. I've been thinking about how much of my life I waste away, and how unhappy I am quite often because of this. I feel much more fulfilled in life when I'm engaged in activities that give my life meaning.
    I've also been casually watching porn for years every once in awhile. It always makes me feel like crap after watching it, and it is a huge waste of time and demotivating. I'm sure everyone is aware of many of the other psychological and physiological negative effects of P. So, I decided today after watching P, that I don't want to watch it again ever. I'm just going to quit and not I don't want to comeback ever.
    This will just be one of the steps towards giving my life more meaning because I know from JP and other personal mentors in my life, that addiction in general often has to do with many other personal factors besides just the substance being abused. So, I'm not only going to quit P, but I'm also going to replace poor habits like P and general procrastination and laziness with better habits. I've already started journaling which helps me personally a lot, and I'm going to go to the grocery store and buy healthier foods than the current crap I have at home. I'm also going to start exercising (working out or bicycling) at least 3 times throughout the week for at least 20 minutes at a time. Another thing I'm going to start doing is meditating.
    Anyway, this the beginning of MY journey. I'm encouraged by how many people are deciding they'd like to change their lives for the better. It means we are not alone in this fight for better lives. I also would like to suggest not only trying to quit PMO, but furthermore trying to adopt positive habits in general because it's not enough to remove negative habits. They have to be replaced with positive ones, in order to combat the old negative ones.

    Hi guys, I'm still here, and I'm still continuing my streak. Thank God. I've been doing a lot of things. I spent a weekend at my friend's house in Orlando and we played a bunch of boardgames went to Universal studios. It was a blast. I'm glad I feel like I've been getting to do more things these days. I'm quitting my job soon, and I'm going to go back to focusing entirely on fulltime school which is a good thing because I'm going to work on more projects and things of that nature. I'm also glad because I've been journaling some too in my personal journal. Anyway, I'm gonna go journal now. I'm exhausted but content. I hope to continue these days of doing things that are good for me.
