    Day 0 of my second attempt. I'm avoiding activities 0-7 including. I will maintain relations with my gf, although we live apart and due to covid we can't meet very often. Godspeed!

    Good morning/evening guys. I'm gonna participate in this challenge again. Starting from tomorrow.

    Abstaining from all except from (4). Good luck.

    Implementing Reading and Exercising. I'll be journaling but when i want/when necessary. Not going to make it a habit.

    P.S - I'll be using whatsapp at allocated times for online class updates, etc.

  8. I want to try this again. The past 12 months have been some of the worst in my life, but I'm still here and committed.

    I will say, though, when I cut out caffeine and music, my mind is so much more clear.

  12. I've been for a bit, but I've had some insane personal stuff occure in the past 12 months that has derailed me from really doing any sort of moderating, or even being on the site that much. It's been a rough year in a lot of ways, not to mention PMO. But I'm still trying

    My weekend was good. I'm adding three things to my detox-list:

    0. Porn/ P-Subs
    1. M 'solo'

    3. YouTube
    4. Disturbing news media
    5. Alcohol/ drugs
    6. Fast food/ sugary foods

    As for 3.: It just occured to me that I use some specific videos on youtube for learning. So these learning videos are an exception to the rule.

    As for 6. and 7.: I allow for one coffee a day and one item of sugary foods OR fastfood

    I'm doing well in comparison to before, I'm doing really well. But I didn't break through yet. Still too much distraction, too much of the old and not enough creative work, exercise, practising.
    I'll report in more detail soon.
    CU :)
