    Day 28

    I completed an application I'd been dreading. Onan 1, Avoidance 0. A good day so far.

    Today I have taken a cold shower, meditated, and done some informal prayer off and on. I got up at my preferred time of 6:30 am, too. I still have a couple more tasks to do, including a workout tonight.

    Day 5

    Another chill day. My therapist had a power cut today so we've moved the session to tomorrow, I've also got my first accountability group session tomorrow too so I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing how that goes. I spent a lot of time playing games with friends today so I didn't have time to watch Squid Game again today.

    I had a couple of urges today I think mostly caused by triggers that I've seen before popping back up in my head as well as my addiction's voice being generally quite loud today.

    Checking in for day 43

    Got back from my travel. Hurt my foot in the first day and couldn't do half of the things that I planned to do, but still I'm glad for the trip, I relaxed and enjoyed spending a good time with family and friends. I checked in one day during the travel, and I metioned that I was having some stronger urges, but I thinks its passed and I'm back to the normal day-to-day ones.
    I've been also pretty impressed with myself. Honestly, I would never think that could reach this streak after so many short ones. I was expecting a slow and progressive improvement. Because of that, I've been feeling confident enough to start fighting another addictions: coffee (which I've been fighting already) and sugar (that I'll start soon).

    @bob200 Hope I get through this without falling bro! Try going for a walk in a park and do some breathworks when you get those feelings back, it might remind you that life's much bigger than our problems. I do this when I'm in the middle of a storm like this of yours.

    @EpsilonDelta Man, I get these anger problems a lot and I they usually turn into triggers when I don't release them. Tearing cardboard apart or doing some sprinting running are things that help me to relieve those feelings.

    Day 82. I suppose I've done everything I intended to do today, so that's good. Was slow to get going though. Not a lot to say about today really.

    Thanks for the advice, bro! I think most of us need to be careful with anger and other extreme emotions, since they can trigger a relapse. :)

    Day 233 no PMO. I was still feeling down and angry yesterday when my dad called and I had to take him to the hospital. He will be ok. It’s interesting how helping others is so good for lifting my mood. I need to find a way to help others more often. When he called I just jumped into action and immediately forgot about my problems.

    Day 17

    I’ve survived yesterday, it was shit. I was just tired and cranky all day long. But tonight I’ve slept 8 hours and I feel so much better.

    The urges are getting stronger and one thought in particular is massing with my head. I’ve been reading about what to do in berlin in the winter and everywhere I’ve look they write about the sauna’s in berlin and how everyone is naked there and stuff like that and it is massing with my head. I come from kind of a restrictive society, and all of my life the idea of nudist beaches and naked saunas always sounded like one big happy orgy party and I was obsessed with it in my PMO days.

    Is there anyone here from northern Europe that can calm me down and tell me what the hell are this sauna phenomenon all about? I would really love to hear that there is nothing exciting there because I can’t stop thinking about it.

    Another thing I wanted to ask about. YouTube has this thing on their app called “Shorts” that shows up on my regular feed. Some days the videos there are fine but a lot of times they have tempting content on them. I have not completely fallen (only clicked it a few times and realized it was a bad idea and got out of there) to the videos but it does seem like it could be a problem at some point. Do you guys know if a way to turn those “shorts” off in my feed? It seems to be short videos from TikTok. I’m not on TikTok as I assume that would be an awful place for a recovering addict.
