    Thank you for the responses. It's a muscle that needs to be worked I guess.

    Top priorities: No porn, and working out. Gotta keep in mind what I'm working on. I have to brave the marshes soon...

    Day 16

    Today is going to be so hard, I have literally broken all of the unwriting laws of nofap.

    My wife and I came back from a vacation back into berlin, but the train got delayed 4 hours and we ended up going to bed at around 04:30 in the morning. The past day was so weird that we eat basically only junk food all day long. And on top of that, we need to change sublet apartments today in a couple of hours and we can only check into the new place 4 hours later so we will be homeless for a couple of hours.

    We are both really sleep deprived and cranky. I’ve been awake for a hour, and I’m already had more urges than I had in the last week.

    This day is not going to be fun. But I’m not going to fail today.

    Day 232 no PMO. All afternoon yesterday I was angry and just couldn’t shake it. I just had this feeling of “what is the point of life?” I’m not saying I’m going to commit suicide or anything but just feeling angry and down.

    Checking in day 5.
    Wasn't super hard yesterday. I started meditation, and I finished a lot in my book. Also went back to reading academic books. My energy pumping. Still procrastinating from time to time. But feeling much better now.

    Childhood trauma
    I woke up with the discovery that when I was a little kid when I tried to be very ambitious in mundane goals I chew more than I can swallow, usually not thinking things carefully and I suffered from serious failures. I even forgot about this, it wasn't in my memory until today.

    This created a subconscious fear to success and to not really push myself to the extreme in terms of mundane achievements. I feel I understand myself more and I'm more open to success. I have the tools to succeed but I had a limitation in me that never quite figure out what it was and I think it's this childhood trauma.

    Day 7. The temptations have been strong. Now that I have committed to no M it has been difficult to think clearly. I am hoping I flatline soon. Typically I have experienced a flatline at the two-week mark so I am pushing ahead to achieve this. Keeping my eye on the path!

    Hey guys, one question...

    I started to having crashes on my mood, like short-depression periods, low libido, monkey on mind (i cannot focus), my motivation is okay so far.
    I am on day 18, is means i am on flat-line?

    I used to have almost always a stable mood since I remove procrastination from my life a several months ago, now I work as hard as I can, before that I used to feel depressed sometimes.

    Update: Day 18 completed, I am on day 19.

    Checking in Fellowship.

    Another dreadful withdrawal day. Yesterday i survived, but today it´s even worst, super fatigue and brain fog is hitting me hard. started around 12:00, and still goes on, oh well :(

    on the good side, social anxiety is still low, although i don´t feel any mood to socialize :D

    the more i experience this up and down path, and watch yours, the more it ressembles to the Journey of the One ring. Man, Frodo and Sam got to go throught a lot of shit until they destroy the ring. what a difficult journey, both physically and mentally.

    Just like us. This is hard my brothers, but it´s worth it.

    In the end we will prevail.

    Almost breaking.
    Shitty day with no sleep, and now we are in a hotel with really bad wifi and we are kind of fighting because of this.

    I don't even want to fap. I know myself enough to know that I just want to watch porn to distract myself.
    I hate it

    This is the worst day I've had in this streak

    It happens, it will probably fade in a couple of hours or one day or two

    Sounds crappy, sorry to hear about it. But if you can get through this day, just think about what else you can get through without PMO.

    Checking in. Had some problem with anger/frustration today. My morning started with me getting a fine of about the equivalent of 200 USD because I had the wrong type of ticket on the subway (public transport), which is a ridiculous amount of money for such a thing. I got frustrated because it was an honest mistake, I thought I was supposed to get that particular type of ticket and I acted in good faith but the lady ticket controller would not give me a break. Instead of expressing my feelings or letting them go, I suppressed my anger/frustration about the situation, so I have been walking around a bit tense today, which is not good.
