    So I've been struggling on and off with porn for quite some time. I've gotten far better at limiting how often I watch porn, but still have yet to cut it out entirely. I'm posting here just to keep myself accountable, regardless if anyone responds haha. I think it was a big wake up call last time when I hooked up with a girl for the first time in a while, but because of porn, I embarrassingly finished almost right away, which is another form of ED to my understanding. Hopefully just writing something everyday will keep me more on top of it.

    Goal one: make it a week.

    You will start to appreciate things you often overlook. Keep telling yourself it will get easier each day because that is the truth. Keep it up.

    Good job man. When you start getting urges focus on something you want to get done and do it

    Three full days down. Working out at night seems to really help.

    Alright, so I made it 6.5 days. And then I just relapsed: combination of boredom and a few other things. I'm stoked that my porn habit has come way down to now about 7 days in between/ only once a week, but unfortunately, it seems that I'm in the habit of breaking after each week. Maybe next weekend, just stay more active?

    hey great improvement =) keep on going. i also relapsed a couple times already since i started this 1 year ago. but we gotta remember: we fapped 3 times a day, now we maybe do it once in a week. its a huge progress.

    I completely agree, its just now that I've improved, the once a week is my new baseline that I can't seem to get away from. Little frustrating, but mostly happy with the overall change.

    Alright. Day 0 again. Let's do this.

    Am I the only one who finds the emergency page a great idea, but it seems to do very little once the urges come. I usually have already relapsed before I even remember it. Strange.
