    Day 5: Few challenges have come as of late - I've been able to keep myself in control with the only exception being an esoteric picture on Instagram I saw this morning. Keeping the coomer.mp4 YouTube video close at hand, I have it downloaded and it is working wonders. Had the first cold shower in my life and it was exhilarating and painful to say the least. Didn't really enjoy it at first but the idea of finding comfort in discomfort seems very powerful and I want this feeling to last. Next update will be on the 10th of November; gotta stay strong, even if for NNN.

    Remember, your happiness shouldn't depend on one person.

    Day 9/0:
    Relapsed this evening. Day 9 is my personal highest so I'm rather proud of it but its still a disapponting moment. I realise now the error of my ways: I need to be more careful with the media I consume, and need to find ways to keep strong urges in check while in public. I will grow from this defeat, and I will become stronger than I was before this moment. Let's aim for double digits this time!

    Awesome response! You are amazing! You've found your weakness and now your failing forward! You couldn't ask anything better. You're doing amazing! Keep it up!

    Day 3: I seem to fall into the habit of not using this website when I relapse. I try to combat this habit every time it happens but I hope that this time will be different. I'm taking cold showers, meeting my friends often, and going to the gym. Frankly, I'm feeling great and not PMO'ing is definitely helping me feel this good. Life is good, will report back on day 5. Hope feeling this good continues.

    Day 6: A day late, but I forgot to post yesterday. The streak is still going strong and but the urges are also getting stronger. The weekends are prime-time for me to relapse cus that's when I have the most free time at home. Gonna try to keep myself occupied and be efficient. Still going to the gym, but I did recently overload on carbs in the house - gave myself the excuse that getting rid of all carbs in the house would help me lose weight later cus there would be nothing to tempt me, but I know I could've just given the food to a friend. No matter though, I'm gonna work out even harder tomorrow.

    Day 10: Double digits for the first time in my life! It sounds like a minor accomplishment but this is absolutely huge for me. I've been going to the gym and been taking care of what I eat. Life is good and NoFap has definitely inspired me. I'm gonna keep it up. Next accomplishment which hopefully will come up soon: 2 weeks!

    Day 14: Officially two weeks! My biggest streak by far and I'm quite proud. Urges have started coming in but using various methods have been able to stop myself from feeding these urges. Hope this streak continues and will keep this thread updated when things get tough - which I assume is going to be soon based on how today went.
