Hello guys, It's been a week since I joined this community. And taking the advice from other threads and replies on my introduction post, I have decided to make weekly posts on my PMO control progress. I will also keep a track of a few things like smoking, weight/exercise and the triggers that cause an urge and also those that take my mind off it. Okay, so the day that I have joined I have failed not to masturbate and so have I last night. I did not masturbate since 19th to 23rd. But last night, well, could not control the urge and totally forgot about the Panic button here on the site. As I have said in my introductory post, my sickness of masturbation has come to a point where I just simply cannot sleep without masturbation have few times. Last night, however, was not the case. I did it simply because I wanted to. I wanted to feel that orgasm. It was like a little voice telling "just do it, you will feel great". But I did not feel great. I did not feel the way I used to before I took up the challenge. I did not feel ashamed like I did on the first night after taking up the challenge. I don't have the word to describe how I felt after fapping. Anyway, when I think about the last 5 days where I did not masturbate, I find some sort of courage. Courage or assurance that I can control the urge tonight and the nights that follow. I am hoping and strongly believe that the next week when I post a new end of the week thread or update this same post, I will have controlled the impulse to masturbate thus having a 7-day streak. So resetting the counter: >No. of days since last fap: NA >No. of days since last cigarette: 1 > Current weight: 107.2kg I have also started working out on the same day that I have joined this community. I was hoping that writing about PMO and my daily exercise to fitness will boost my morale and help achieve my goals of weightloss/fitness and PMO.
