    All addictions are like this, they will continue to tempt us as long as we believe that the numbing is better than reality - which it is not. When we are able to embrace reality, which you clearly must have done countless times last year, we start to become alive and being alive, rather than zombified, is what life is all about. Yes there is aloneness and wounds from our past but there is also joy, love, light and an infinite list of pleasures that we never get to experience while we are stuck in the hell of PMO. Hotel's are lethal, because they are fundamentally lonely places so get out and get some tasty food, do a tour, museum, hike, just do something nice for yourself, a reward for this superb streak and please please do not fish anymore.

    Checking in friends
    High alert - this weekend is the weekend when most cave in on their resolutions, in the run up to Blue Monday. Good news is that things get much easier again after the next 3 days. So let's dust down the trigger plans - do nice things this weekend - meet people - play a board game - breath fresh air - laugh - sing - dance - let our hair down a little - eat dark chocolate - do some home cooking like a roast - go for a very long low heart rate jog/ cycle to get those natural endorphins - hike in nature and if it's raining put on a rain coat and hike anyway - buy yourself a nice book - jump into the sea - list all the qualities you have (as per @Redemptionisrequired post above) - let's be gentle with ourselves and we will pull through!

    Day 9

    Today: meditation, prayer, cold shower. Still really lethargic. Feeling a little agitated, with some slight cravings earlier today.

    Wishing everyone a great weekend.

    Day 32 complete!

    I had a little bit wet dream. I am feeling less stress in work, had a good night sleep tonight. This evening I will be meeting friends late (cuz they are busy), hope to get back on sleep the next day. And I hope this is going to be a nice relaxing weekend for me and for all of you guys!

    Beware of the aftereffect of wet dream. It tends to make us somewhat absent minded for the next day or two, where we can engage in thinking or daydreaming in the middle of our daily activities. Especially dangerous when driving the car or in other activities requiring constant attention on what is going on around us.

    A question : What is the most important thing that you can do today and have you already done it?;)
     
  16. IveWastedMyTime

    IveWastedMyTime Fapstronaut

    Thats always a good question! Most important today (as every day for me) was my morning routine which quite extended for the last days because of the 7 days challenge I m doing.

    So its now like this:
    3 min icecold shower
    3 min Meditation
    2 min gratefullness Meditation
    30 min effective body workout ( time runs only if you move)

    Im on Day 6/7 now but
    This challenge is quite tough - especially the workout part to it.
    I wont recommend it if your not used to high effective relaxation exercises (progressive muscle relaxation, autogenic training, ..) if not done correctly it leads to much tiredness(what could be a significant PMO factor)- you need to eat and sleep well and always take naps when needed. But nevertheless this challenge was awesome so far. It brought me to the limits and gives me much more positivity and energy. It shows me how important frequent relaxation and listening to your body is. And daily routines and exercise!
    Stay strong evrybody - keep going !

    Day 327 no PMO. Finally checked out of that hotel yesterday and I’m back home with my family. No urges for PMO yesterday. Glad to back in my normal routine.
