  1. I'm @garmenclyde. This is my old account. Accidently I found out I could reset my lost password because I still had the e-mail.
    So now I have two accounts, what a mess!
    It feels exciting to be "icebreaker" again and maybe I even behave a little different (automatically) on this account (we have different alter egos, that's why)
    However it is like looking at a mirror that shows years of not getting anywhere, years of addiction, years of struggeling, years of hiding. It's wearying.

    But back to buisness.

    Relapse report:
    my last relapse was actually not the worst. First I succumbed to the urges and watched porn on my phone at broad daylight. But then I reacted: I went swimming. Even on the way to the lake I had wild fantasies of sex with a stranger but I said to myself "let's see what happens to your dick when you are in the cold water" "you want to jerk of. OK, no problem, just go into the lake and when you can you can do it there."
    Ok, maybe the last thought was not the healthiest one but of course when I went into the cold water all the cravings and wild thinking were cut off.
    Long time ago, I even masturbated in cold water once (why??) but that was at home in the bath tub. When you swim in a cold lake your body just can't afford to stay in that mode. It is forced to activate all the senses and work against the cold.
    So that was a good decision, a good counter-measure. And it is so good for your body and mind! Do it often in the cold season and you have so many benefits. Also it gives you a kick and as a addict that's probably what I'm looking for the most.

  2. I hope you excuse my little game. Of course I should tell you that I'm garmenclyde. Anyway, I'm happy that I could be of service.
    I'm really surprised how you suddenly went so far. That's a good development!

    Checking in Fellowship :)

    Still feeling a bit of withdrawal sympthoms: fatigue, brain fog, anxiety... but they´re slowing lifting, so it´s good :)

    Small urges but i´m feeling more tempted these days, not sure why, but surely has a connection to my present weak state. Anyway, i´m following my strategy to the point. No slack.

    Here´s some wisdom from our dear brother @Redemptionisrequired . Have a great day Fellowship!! Checking out :)

    "I'd like to share what has been on mind for a while, I think we must all understand this. It's during your roughest days, where things go horribly wrong, those are key moments where you must instal new and healthy habits to manage what you are going through. This is where the neural changes are the strongest. Notice that I said manage, not avoid. If we avoid, we never grow, regardless of the situation. I don't know about you guys, but I spent a lot of 20's avoiding. Last year is where I decided I had enough and the actions I've taken over the last year were a consistent notion of "no more". I refuse to run, no matter how bad i'll feel, because I know I will grow from it."

    Talz! From the lands of cold and heartWarming niceness, that sounds like a big big goal you have there, as most sites I saw help me get 10 in a couple of weeks. However, Talz, warrior of NoFap, I shall take on this challenge as well. Prioritizing Pull Ups to reach two sets of 12! I made 3 yesterday (just 3, not 3 per set etc... Just 3), but couldn't do not even one today, so our Strengths match. When is the end date? and do you need any tips?

    35 days in, and learning more and more and how much there is still to learn

    I might be able to progress faster than I think then. 10 in a couple weeks would be great. Yeah, any tips or resources you have would be great. I wanted to get there by Dec 1st. I also wanted to reach 2 sets of 50 squats. I have already made it to 2 sets of 25 on pushups and leg raises, so that is my first goal for those. I will probably hold those there for now and try to reach my pull up and squat goal.

    Checking in! Feeling urges, and this is due to fatigue. Staying offline tonight. Why engage in risky behavior if you don't have to? Early to bed for me.

    Hi, i'm not in the actual challange, but i hope it's ok to share something within LOTR lore:

    Also - if someone has a talent to perform the above in the Gollum"s voice and would upload it to youtube or somewhere, that would be hilarious.
    Greetings my friends and Farewell on your Journeys!
