  1. Hello friends,

    I'd figure I'd introduce myself and describe to you what is helping me on this journey.

    I'm a senior in high school and musician with many goals in bettering my musicianship and spirituality. Currently I am on Day 79, which is absolutely mind-blowing! I am so grateful to be where I am, at this stage of life filled with many uncertainties. I embrace both the bad and the good, because I know they both contain lessons within themselves and will ultimately make me a better man.

    Saying this leads to what I have gone through so far and what has helped me along this path to a better reality (this might not be so for everyone). Handling urges is a big part of success on this journey. Especially early on, it's important to treat your urges as not something about the sex itself, but about your growth (it's your dopamine-deficient brain wanting that thing that you're not going to give). It seems like whenever one gets an urge, the urge is a subconscious desire to hide some sort of pain occurring in that person's life.

    That's another thing, pain. When on this journey, you will experience some painful thoughts and emotions as they bubble up to the surface. During my flatline (around day 20-50), I questioned whether any of the daily disciplines I implemented were working. They are. For all of us. Because we do improve, even if it's just that one percent per day.

    True success, at least from what I've felt, stems from your ability to face your flaws and to improve yourself in the process.
    It's tough to go inside of yourself and ask (as coach Universal Man in one of his videos said) "What hurts?" You can easily replace a porn and masturbation addiction with another, but overcoming the problems in your life you use as fuel for those those addictions is probably the ultimate quality of a human being. (That was a long sentence, my bad.) Right now, I think I've replaced PMO with a food addiction, but that could just be the fact that I'm a late bloomer, growing, and teenagers generally think they have an eating disorder anyhow. Needless to say, there is a lot to work on now.

    As far as disciplines I have found useful, cold showers and meditation. Cold showers are grounding, and give you a serotonin boost for the day. Meditation relaxes you to the point where you accept the present and any challenges that belie you. Another method is gratefulness. Just thanking the Lord, Allah, Jesus, Gautama Buddha, The Gods of Hinduism, The Universe, or whomever you believe in just makes you feel blessed for what you have in life, even if it isn't ideal.

    My apologies for rambling here.

    Thank you all for being supportive not only to me but for the many who need guidance in a challenging part of our lives.

    Greatness and peace is coming in time to all of us.

    Cheers,
    -AJ0078
     
  2. Golden words! 100% truth!
    Target: healing after abusive relationship and creating a healthy relationship with myself first and foremost.
    Steps: conscious timeout for at least six months (or up to one year) without engaging in any potentially romantic interactions including texting, emailing, online dating sites, hookups, introductions by well-intentioned friends and family; inventory of my own dysfunctional patterns in past relationship(s); therapy; better self-care (sleep, nutrition, hydration, exercise, hobbies).
    This will take time but it's my most important target right now. Interested in hearing yours as well @Saiyan123 :) By the way, I would be honoured to duel with another woman here, if there are any female warriors available, let's go!

    Me and @fleurette . Day 2. I have been studying whole day and 5pm + playing tennis table for 2 hours straight. Shower and now it is time for bed after posting here. It is little to 9 pm where I am. I am proud I am sticking to drinking only water as beverage . Little progress is still progress in our goals. I even got a carrot juice I throw, cause I said. I will drink only water. I don't know for how long I will succeed. But it is beautiful to hustle. Have a nice day, morning, night comrades.

    I don't think wet dreams are relapse untill you have a dream but when I have a wet dream I feel good but sometimes it's not when I actually have a dream and I can remember it

    Closing in on my old 82 day streak, won’t give up this time.
    Sometimes you must hurt in order to know, fall in order to grow, lose in order to gain, because life’s greatest lessons are learnt through pain.

    My favorite jutsus are: Katon Gouka Mekkyaku, Sabaku kyu and Kawarimi no jutsu I love the hunting kuchiyose no jutsu of Kakashi against Zabuza.

    And of course... Doton doryuuheki!

  20. Hi there, checking in. Thanks for counting duel days brother, I will count my blessing then maybe :) Had a productive day, played with kids in the evening, now enjoying freedom and my season of singleness, it is so much fun indeed! I guess my labradorite bracelet is working, got rid of a few toxic relationship since I bought it and it is easy for me to keep my boundaries. Really like it. I will now listen to some podcast or smth.
