Way to go BC!
59 Green days. Woot
Well family, I did not think that it would take me 65 days to get here, but 45 days in 2021 are pretty much in the books. Ask you know I count whole days so I'm celebrating a few hours early, something I'd rarely do, but I'm feeling like there aren't too many risk factors today to be worried about.
I finished a couple of back to back chapters in the Unwanted book..... they hit home. They brought me face to face with what is and has been happening for nearly my whole adult life.
Promiscuity, sexual arousal patterns, sexual tendencies, compulsive acts, mistreating women, objectifying women, there are reasons for everything I'm struggling with and they're looking pretty clear as I advance through these chapters.
If you're looking for a Read or listen.... For what it's worth I use audible and primarily listen in the car while I commute.

Unwanted: Jay Stringer
Stay strong BC! Good recommendation on the Jay Stringer book.
Feeling a bit calmer this Mon/Tues which are normally my trouble days. Now that I'm past the 7 and 14 day hurdles I am hoping to settle into a longer streak. June will be 1 year on NF so if I can get there that will 2 separate four month streaks in my first year and I will be very thankful for that. I'm not one for setting these type of longer term goals but I think as I look towards my one year this might be a good additional motivation.
Yes! Keep going friend! Green means go!
Awesome! I look forward to celebrating with you. Keep going!
62 Green days. Grateful
Great job man. Way to rebound strong.
63 Green days.
Urges, but we shall sail on through.
...63 Green days. I'll keep repeating that for myself.
64 Green days. Woot, woot ,woot
A couple of amber days. Rough week. My disconnect from P--- continues.
Amber is greater than red. It's awesome to hear that you're abstaining from the full thing even during a rough week. Good job!
Today marks 66 green days for me.
Also, though I didn't reset my streak counter for it, yesterday marked 7 days complete since I found my way into pornography/ amber day.
Grateful. Very grateful
Have a little time now, so thought I'd pop in.
68 green days. Keep this train moving.
How you all doing?
Wishing you the best
Been staying off of red but getting a little liberal with amber day concessions. Need to assess what's going on but things are moving rapidly with kid sports, work, and house chores. Busy busy days and jerking off at night to rest.
Day 28 - hanging in there, although a lot of P imagery was occupying my addict brain over the weekend. It is amazing how the infection that is P can keep coming back. Stayed away from acting out but the thought crossed my mind. I guess it will take longer than 8 months on a NF journey to keep the mind clean. I think I will do some pro-active work to scrub the recent dirt from my mind and soul. Try to clean up my act. Stay strong my brothers.
Keep going friends
Day 29 - lots of physical activity lately, especially yesterday. Much less likelihood for any urges or thoughts when the body is exhausted and sleep comes quickly. Stay strong everyone.
btw - how is every else doing besides BC and Ian?
I am doing ok, but need to do better. 61/75 days have been green, which looks pretty good. That is 81% success rate, which sounds good, but that translates to 1.5 days a week of acting out. This translates to acting out on the weekends and in a nutshell, this describes my situation pretty well.
I relapsed with porn yesterday. A long weekend, lots of math, stress, schedule jockeying, etc. I just slipped. One pic of a female athlete....and boom I was searching. It happened so fast.
