Hi all you Orcs and Nazguls. I have a proposition for all of us.
It’s kind of sad, a lot of us had fallen in the last week or so. And some of us (including me) are still having a hard time getting ourselves back up. but on the other hand, this moment gives us an opportunity to do something great.
Right now, we are all somewhere between 0 and 7 days. This is the hardest part of the journey. The place where the counter is more of an enemy than a friend. and the place we feel most alone and when we have the hardest time to find the will to be better people. Why not turn
this into our advantage.
Let’s us create the real fellowship!
My suggestion is that we all (who ever would wish to join this idea) reset our counters at the same time on Wednesday at 07:00 (GMT+2) (in about 60 hours from the time I’m posting this).
Let us take a couple of days, truly think about how we are going to change our lives, what do we want to add to our lives to make them better. I think we could all really benefit from not rushing into a new streak without truly thinking about it.
I love to see my counter go up, but I feel like these couple of days would not have the same impact as starting fresh and marching day by day with all of you as a unit. I’m not saying you should PMO, Don’t PMO! (if you can). I’m saying that we could join hands and truly start fresh.
Day 7 on my path of reboot. God bless you all
*Screams on Nazgul*
Hope everyone is doing well, and still fighting the good fight. I am definitely appreciating how difficult it is to quit. I am completing day 16 at mid-night today. My take home so far is that you need to be working on yourself holistically in order to quit and to improve your life. Two things that I have found to be important: 1) Make a plan to progress your career/ job/ study situation and focus on it aggressively. 2) Take care of yourself: work on your health and fitness (gym, food, buying good clothes and maintaining a look for confidence), and work on improving your social interactions and activities (talking to friends, family etc).
Day 4 - Orc
I had a dream last night that I was looking at P and was really confused when I woke up needing to pee. In the dream I was mad at myself for having broken, but I was relieved when I woke up. The sexual thoughts have been pretty bad this weekend, but I think that’s to be expected. Tried out the vibrating alarm watch, seems to work pretty good. It is definitely relieving knowing that my phone isn’t even in the room with me, so looking at P is less likely. Still reminding myself that this is for younger me (my brother), he deserves for me to be strong. True strength isn’t a trait, it’s something that’s learned. It’s when your body and mind are screaming at you to do the easy or safe or comfortable thing and you choose to act in spite of those feelings. Each time you say no to your desires builds up your strength.
I bought Metroid Dread yesterday for Switch! Playing that today. I’ve been too busy during the week for games, I think I will let Sunday afternoons be my dedicated gaming time. I watched two YouTube videos yesterday and then stopped myself. I felt crappy as I watched them, Youtube is such a drain on my motivation and time.
Anyways, hope y’all are doing well. Peace and love, brothers. God bless.
Sure, I'm in, I have some reflections to do anyways.
Checking in. Still thinking about how to proceed with this new streak. I have memories of my 90+ day streak during the summer, and I definitely think I can achieve that again. However, my life is quite different now compared to what it was during summer since many things have changed for me, and I think one of my problems is that I haven't really adapted my reboot strategy properly.
Happy Sunday everyone! Hope most of you resisted well through the week-end same as I did as well. The week-ends still remain the riskiest days since there are more empty moments due to either lack of activities, more time, or risky behavior opportunities (drinking, partying, an abundance of females dressed up nicely, etc) and an acknowledgment of those factors can help most stay on course, for when an urge appears, it is known that it's more of an external factor rather than an internal yearning.
Played some more VR and grinded the FF14 event some more whilst I was working. I didn't go out for my usual walk today because it's starting to get super cold but it's also getting really dark really quickly, so I need to get into the habit of going on my walks earlier. Tomorrow, I'm gonna be hanging out with a girl I started talking to recently (online, not irl) and then later I'm gonna watch Dune in the cinema with a friend, very excited for both.
Zero urges today, keeping myself very busy.
I'm not sure what happened here, I just sort of relapsed. I was getting into a pretty shitty emotional state because I was thinking about a girl who I'm not really over yet, and it led me to searching for dating sites weirdly enough. Eventually after a while of mindlessly looking at dating sites -which I wasn't even going to make an account on, I was just sort of looking at the site pages-, the websites started to become nsfw in nature and so I got very strong triggers from these images obviously. I immediately backed away, however, I just continued to look for more dating sites, when in reality I was just gradually giving into my addiction without realising. I think I was just in such an emotional and exhausted state I didn't even fight back against it, I just sort of let it happen, idk. I'm just really fucking upset with myself, this was such a ridiculously stupid and inexcusable relapse and I didn't even really learn anything from it.
I need to try to not dwell on it though and just keep moving forward otherwise I'll get consumed by these negative emotions, which will just lead to more relapses.
I am asking this because I wanna Insert this link as well in my signature.
This time I'll make it to the 90
Till now no urges.
Sadly, it cannot be possible for the limitations of the program of this site.
Just two links on the signature, no more.
Then how do some people put so many links
That aren't links , they just writed the challenge.
Nazgul on the lord of the ring challenge forever and ever
stumbled on some pics for 2 minutes, didn't fap nor was I aroused. So I don't think I should relapse.
