    yep, that´s seem like a good old addiction excuse to me :D.

    in the future, for similar events, when you´re in doubt, ask yourself this: "is it fair to reset the counter?" and follow the answer.

    Checking in Fellowship!! :)

    Slipped again last night. i think i wasn´t really ready to start a new streak. even thought we´re always in a recovery journey, it seems everytime that i start a new streak, i need a warriors scream to wake the fuck up.

    I´ve done it, so now i´m ready brothers! Let´s do this :emoji_muscle:


    @Talz brother, i´ve notice that you also slipped when reached 90 days.

    the list of incidents on special marks goes on and on, so it seems clear by now, that personal milestones creates an additional pressure to rebooters.

    so, i suggest everyone to take a look at their streak, and notice when an important milestone appears in the horizont. expect extra pressure by then, be prepared and plan a proper celebration when the mark is achieved. that will also help decompress ;).

    My important milestones are:

    15 days (hobbit)
    70 days - when i feel that i have a big streak (ego trap)
    90 days - a classic milestone
    150 days - a milestone of recovery in dopamine receptors
    365 days - 1 year
    500 days - end of the LOTR challenge - Destruction of the ring
    730 days - 2 years. A sure mark that the reboot has been acomplished by now. This mark will surely not lead to a slip but it definitely deserves to be celebrated :D

    Checking out brave Fellowship!!!

    Let´s do this.

    Day 38

    Chugging along and trying to be watchful. I meditated again yesterday for the first time in days and it really helped.

    Checking in Fellowship friends!

    Day 347 free of Porn and day 275 free of MO.

    I am doing well, not much of an eventful day. I had a good workout and took it easy as i'm on vacation.

    I came across a post on the semen retention section, where an individual seemed to stress about nocturnal emissions. I would like to share my advice to him here as well. This is for anyone looking to go down the path of semen retention, alongside abstinence of PMO. If you don't believe in semen retention no need to continue, I respect your opinion and I am not looking to force my thoughts or beliefs onto anyone.

    I would not pressure yourself too much about nocturnal emissions. To me it seems people who are advocating semen retention are forgetting one important step. Most of us who were/are addicts, would utilize PMO as a stress relief or perceived negative emotional "management." Which means once you remove that your body is in "freak out" state of sorts. So in that state your body will eventually force out a nocturnal emission to ease your stress from life and/or withdrawal because that is what it is accustomed to.

    I believe time is an important factor, while you introduce new habits to manage your stress and any other emotions you would use PMO to cover up, along side a true form of abstinence from PMO. Don't fall prey to the elitist mentality, with regards to this need for immediate retention and do not pressure yourself. As long as you see the distance between each emission growing over time, then you are going along the right path.

    Arm yourselves and retain your seed as you can.

    Sex can't change you

    When I'm on the right energetic and mental state sex doesn't create too much happiness or mental balance. Because I'm already balanced and with high levels of energy.

    On the contrary if I'm being lazy, not focused in life, when I have sex it's like an unbelievable source of mental balance and excess of energy.

    Here I'm talking about non ejaculatory sex, which is the type of sex I practice.

    Try to live in such a way that having or not having sex has the same effect on you.

    How to do it: live in a mental and physical state of relaxation and awareness this way you live in your natural state which is wisdom and joy.

    Day 13, and I 'reset' again.
    However, I make some progress after all, comparing with last 10-day journey. I think next time I will challenge 21 days without PMO.
    There's some problem I need some help, after I break the 10-day record, many images, u know what I mean, flood into my mind, I cant even stop them. I wonder how you deal with those thoughts, I reckon they raise too much desire to relapse.
    Peace, Im trying my best to catch up with you!

    Day 6! Almost at day 7...
    I had kind of a wet dream last night. I say "kind of" because I didn't actually dreamed, nor had an O (that I would remember, at leats), but I woke up in that certain way that leaves no doubts. By the way, I think I'm having the chaser effects of it, cuz urges are strong as hell, and I flirted with it a little bit. I played with myself with some dirty intentions, but it wasn't edging for O, so I won't reset the counter. If I end up doing it again, I will.
    Gonna watch some series and try to cool down my mind. I'm definitly on the dark days around the second week, it just came earlier this time. Hope it passes soon.
    Good luck to us all!

    congrats..
     
  17. Day 6 complete!

    This streak has taught me that we can't make the slightest concession to any type of triggering behavior. No fishing, peeking, fantasizing, edging, nothing. By grace and grit I've managed to keep this streak super clean and it definitely shows. Yeah, it's only six days, and urges are creeping up, but I feel empowered in a way that I haven't for quite some time. Stay strong, brothers and sisters.

    One of the (many) reasons for which St. John Paul II is famous is his Theology of the Body, which describes in-depth the nature of human sexuality and how we are to make proper use of this gift. Porn and masturbation aren't just wrong, they're evil. They undermine our potential and degrade us into being hollow, empty versions of our true selves.

    Pope St. John Paul II, pray for us!
