    Day 228 no PMO. Last night was the last night alone in this hotel. I fly home today. I’m excited to say that I made it without PM and I get to go back to my family today feeling good about my accomplishment. On the other side I did have a wet dream last night. I hate that it happened but I honestly don’t think I did anything to provoke it. Didn’t watch TV last night. No fishing on the phone. I guess it just happens. Anyway… I’m gonna stay focused on the positive and be happy about my success while on my own. Have a great day guys and a great weekend!

    Relapsed today brothers, no porn but edging without orgasm. It was like if I stopped caring and wanted to relapse after the dreams I had for the last two days(there were women but no sex just love and friendliness, I felt happy in them), I felt shit health-wise(guess repeated symptoms of GAD -bodily pains and other shit out of nowhere) but still wanted the wet dream to happen and than is what came out of this line of thinking - lust leading to edging-masturbation. Don't know if this is the end for it is like being stabbed by morgul blade and orgasm as the only way to stop feeling shitty and end this misery.:(:confused::oops:
    And just to clarify what I mean in my signature by meeting my goals-No PMO and No women as the objects of sex for the duration of the challenge, and this looks like a lifetime to me :D.

    Stay strong brother. Suddenly, lust comes seemingly out of nowhere and take a hold of us, for some strange reason. Maybe you can try to think about why the power of lust suddenly got so strong in you, you talked about some big decisions in your life, is that it? Or is it something else, like slacking when you should be productive, etc? You have studied this much more than I have, I just hope that you can stay rational, and try to see your life and what's going on from a more distant "helicopter perspective" in order to find a path forward. Then you will not get sucked in to emotions that will make things worse. I couldn't do that after my latest relapse, but I have more trust in you than I have in myself :)

    I send good thoughts with hopes that you will learn a valuable lesson from this and find a path forward.

    Fantastic job on getting through the nights at the hotel alone!

    Tough with the wet dreams, but "sh*t happens" as the kids say. What do you think caused the wet dream? My hypothesis is that it was your fear and the stress for the situation you were in. I think you are a very strong person, and the proof of that is that you've made it this far in the challenge. Don't be afraid of anything, whatever challenge faces you, you can handle it!

    Day 1
    It wasn't so hard, as I was all day outside. It was easy to be honest. Day 2 is going to be tough as mostly will be at home.

    Day ten
    "I can remember, the warmth of the sunlight, the sound of the wind blowing trough the leaves and the taste of strwberries, I am coming home and leaving this nasty mudhole for good; and the ring, if I wouldnt knew that I would return for it, I would leave it in this nasty cave, but my task is clear, I have to destroy it, even though it may put me in great danger"

    Man, its a long way just to become a hobbit.

    put it on paper bro. that´s what i do. sometimes i´m like "man, i got so much to do tomorrow, i don´t know how to do it, it´s too much", but when i sit at night and write the plan for the next day, everything falls into place. it´s amazing.

    so don´t worry about it bro. plan, and magic will happen ;)

    it´s probably withdrawal bro, it happens to all of us. stay firm in your strategy, and improve with the slip. keep your sleep, nutrition, and physical exercise in place and the withdrawal will be much lighter ;).

    and when going through bad days, you got to be patient. humility is one of the key factors that every rebooter has to develop ;)

    :( sorry to hear bro. it´s the second time (at least in my watch), that you slipped between days 100 and 200. so what really happened? i mean, i don´t believe it was only the dreams that made you slip. heck, you probably gone through much harder ordeals in the months before, and you didn´t slip.

    this. were you feeling solid in the last days? happy about your life? inspired? or just going through life and trying to survive?

    find the deep cause bro, or you´ll be bounded to repeat this kind´s of slips again. i think the root cause must be connected to dissastisfaction about present life, and the dreams were just the tipping point. but i´m just guessing. only you can dig out the truth.

    reflect bro. this is really important.

    Some days
    Some days are easy others are hard, girls approach you other times they don't. Your girl one day is fine the next maybe not.

    Specially with girls and their changing nature, they change too fast. I've got use to the good, bad and bitter of life. They mix all the time, so I rather don't cling to happiness or sorrow I just flow with what's happening. Otherwise I'll get crazy if my well being depends on how I feel or how life or a girl treats me.

    Once again a bit more centered and wise thanks to girls.

    Bless them all.

    Checking in Fellowship!!! :)

    Feeling good, althought brain fog payed me a visit today because of bad sleep last night. i will try to sleep better tonight.

    My brothers, i want to share a reflexion about my own experience and something that i learned with Universal Man.

    The unknown.

    Most of us are addicted for a very long time, and unfortunatelly some of us, like me, almost don´t remember how to live without social anxiety, to have regular motivation, good mood and energy. but most of us don´t remember how life was without PMO, that´s the truth.

    and when we, in the reboot process, enter uncharted territory (new lenghts in sobriety), there´s a common fear on "how to live without PMO". how to actually live in the unknown.

    just like in "shawshank redemption" movie about long term prison inmates.

    “He´s institutionalized. These walls are funny. First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them. That's institutionalized.”

    no matter how much damage the addiction have caused us, there´s always some fear of living the future without it. it has become part of us.

    what i learn, and experience, is that the best way to overcome that fear is to be confident in oneself. trust yourself.

    you already know that life is 1 million times better without porn and masturbation. now you just need to trust yourself to follow that path for life.

    and the best way to trust yourself is to be coherent, do what you say, follow your strategy and your plan. assume your responsabilities. become a man of word. if you become coherent, you will trust yourself because you will see yourself as someone trustworthy! "this guy doesn´t talk, he does". and when you feel confident, it´s easier to face new territories and life challenges.

    so this is not about a leap of faith (althought some courage is necessary), it´s about hard work and dedication :). the hard work and dedication that you already know. that brought you here in the first place.

    so follow your strategy brothers and no fear can stop you.
