Woke up at 4.00am all by myself and started studying!
Woke up at 4.00 a.m!!
I made it 22 days, but then I was playing dungeons and dragons and was looking something up for the game, though I clicked on the wrong link and ended up seeing erotic images. I should have closed out, but I didn't and a couple hours later, I had PMO'd
Day 0 - Farmer @hoping_cannon
Day 1 almost day 2
@hoping_cannon I am loving your progress!
I am also finally making some progress to 17 days. So am finally an astronaut again
Back to Day 1
Congratulations @Henryforward on becoming an Astronaut. Not an easy task though... Keep going.
Also back to earth I reset without P which is still incredibly disappointing.
Day 0 - Relapsed three times in the last week. I am starting my "Longterm counter" over to try to motivate myself toward a better life. I was reading about the Atlanta murders, and the kid's motives disturbed me enough, especially since I struggle with sexually compulsive behaviors, but I take responsibility for my actions, and I do not blame porn stars and attractive women for my actions. My actions are my own and I would be a weaker man than I already am if I chose to blame women and the media for my own failings. With that said, I was upset enough, that I made the decision to relapse instead of facing the feelings I was encountering from my anger over this kid not taking responsibility for his own failings. We are stronger than we realize, and when we relapse, we chose to do that. We may have been incredibly vulnerable in a moment and relapse may have seemed easy, but if that was the case, we chose to take the easy way out. Well from now on, I refuse to take the easy way out. I may have certain weaknesses, but porn is not one of them. Porn is a chose. Fapping is a choice, and three times in the last week, I chose to do it. No more!
I have just discovered this thread as I was googling "NoFap" and "Interstellar" together. I'm currently on my day 81 on P mode (I know the real game is PMO, please be gentle with me...).
Before knowing this thread existed, I had the same idea than @hoping_cannon to mix Interstellar and NoFap together. I have created a video clip that encourages people like us to go on and "hang in there". It's based also on my experience that says that going to day 365 (my target) is a very long journey.... The scenario is not exactly the same as this game is but It's not completely far away. There is a counter in the video that count each day and as you are progressing, you will go further and further...
Before releasing it to you, I would like to know if someone (or 2 peoples) can help me and correct my English mistakes. There are some motivational texts in the video and, as you may have noticed, I'm not a native English Speaker. It should be a 10 min job max... I will give a text file and all you have to do is to correct/rephrase if that's necessary. If that person can also be a "beta viewer" that would be great! If you are interested, can you send me a private message please, thanks!
Hope to hear from you soon! Bye
Day 0 - Farmer
Appreciate your work. Sure I will PM you and assist the work.
Nowadays the value of life hits me hard when I finally find a way to reach my goals. Now I found a valid reason to convince myself not to relapse when urges detains me on the ground. This week I literally started to feel first time in the journey of Nofap like the urge to relapse starts to fades away.
My goals are real big and I asses it will require immense power and thought process to unleash the idea. I may fail in the journey but at the same time I don't wanna sit and do some other work by not risking my life to do the things I wish for and it will sure haunt me for the rest of my life as I didn't even tried to make things right. So I decided to forge up my idea and go the way I planned. Even if I fall, I will be a smiling at the end because I tried and failed. Till this time I failed in figuring out the path but now I have a map and plan to execute. So why waste the time fapping on a pixel screen which is nothing but only the rgb glowing and depress myself.
Wish me luck fellow voyagers. This is as good as taking up a Interstellar journey for me to reach the place where I wanted to be. This is why I love this film and pushes me to take a giant leap.
I realized when you form a goal and found a right way to achieve it. Just do it! Simple as that Just do it! This becomes easy to stay out of the PMO loop as you find a better ways to invest your time.
For those who have goal but still figuring out the ways to achieve it, I suggest you to keep going... One day life will show you the path and you must recognize and act accordingly because it took me 5 years to realize all these struggle I went through just to find a right way to reach my goal.
I love to play video game all day but my parents won't allow me to play as I'm messing up with my life by not landing up in a job and financially support my family. Still now I'm studying and not having a full time job. You guys won't believe that the way to reach my mission (which is no way related to video game) comes from playing video game lol. The moment I realized the basics of the game I started to apply it to run my life. I shared this incident because I want you guys to keep doing the work you like and it will lead you the way in unprecedented time.
As I didn't know about the last time of relapse but sure so far clean this week. So started counting from Tuesday.
Day 5 - Drone catcher
@Henryforward Keep up your guard up and let's fight again. This time we're in the same level in battlefield. We gonna do this again.
Let's do it buddy. As you're right we are not here to blame other for the relapse. The guilt must be within and we are responsible for the things we do.
What's the news about the Atlanta murders? can you explain me more as I'm not aware of it.
We will overcome brother! Always striving towards the goal
Do you use any software @hoping_cannon ? There's an App called remojo where you can click a panic button and it will block your phone or computer for a set amount of time. Enough time to cool down. It gives a free 3 day trial then its only like 14 bucks for 90 days! I'm going to buy the 90days now just to give myself a little more protection this time. I'm doing well but we all know how tricky this old habit can be to kill.
Hey guys, I've left for a while. Life's been quite stressed lately, as public exams roll in, I can't help but to focus on my studies. Still, pornographic temptation is irresistible, I didn't manage to achieve streaks. Only 20 days left for my exam... But anyway, I come up with a mantra to abstain from porn: focus on hard work, once you devoted your precious time to be productive, no time is left to relapse. Although I failed today yet I'll still continue on this journey, since porn is the last thing I want to come up with while having exam, or it may even hinder my academic performance. I try to be motivated everyday, with tactics, with the use of chrome extensions to block inappropriate websites. I know everyone has their personal issues(I didn't read the thread in detail though), so may god bless you all and win this battle against the devil! Life is always brighter on the other side of tunnel. I may see you guys later, roughly a month later, until everything settles down...
