    Day 25. A Little update on my current situation.

    I’ve decided to try something completely new this year and I moved to A different city with my girlfriend. So far it’s Been amazing - Both the city and my relationship. It’s Been rocky at times before but I feel it stabilizing again, and I Truly believe nofap is A big factor.

    The days Are flying by - obviously feeling no urge to PM.

    Went for A 3 hour climbing session today in my new gym - felt amazing although I strained my finger and probably is out for A couple days…

    happy monday ! :)

    Joining the fellowship. I’m at 20 days no P but 16 days hard mode so i guess that makes me a hobbit. I’ll use my hard mode number for this challenge.

    I'll try it out and give my feedback!

    Thank you for your input!

    Yeah that is true, i think my lack of discipline to get along with was a main thing to demotivate me to pursue journaling further.

    Thank you guys for your respective comments, for sure made me meditate about the subject!

    Day 17

    Blue Monday - found it quite amusing that urges came back today! The majority of my day was fine, feeling healthy and motivated, but as soon as I got home and my flatmate left the urges resurfaced. Carried on, knuckled down, and made it through the day. Have to be careful with my phone and the content I’m watching on TV, will be starting a show with no direct triggers like a sitcom or something.

    Since I started nofap in November of last year, I have been journaling daily( hand written). It's nice to see the progress of my mindset, as well as keeping some gratitude in it, no matter how difficult the day was. I also understand the desire to obtain input from others experience. Sometimes the answers you seek are hidden deep within, it takes a lot of self-reflection. So as anything else, do not expect a change within a month. In the end, I believe the labor of personal journaling is fruitful. This, alongside meditation may uncover the roots of your anger. It's okay to experience the emotion of anger, but not let it take you to a point of being reactionary. This is the challenge with any emotion, to accept without resistance and to handle without projected reaction. This is the path of a stoic.

    Side note, congratulations on your 67 hours of study achievement!

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    Day 362 free of MO and 434 free of Porn.

    I have been dabbling with a variety of b12 vitamin dosages over the last 2 weeks, as my recent blood test results show me as deficient. That and my T levels came at surprisingly low level, b12 can also influence this. This had originally came as quite the shock given my diet is on point and I am not by any means overweight, and oddly enough within 13 months my blood levels went down more than half for b12. It does however, explain part of the anxiety and fatigue I would feel on occasion. I first attempted 1200 mcg daily, which ended up making me dizzy and gave me headaches. I have tried 100 mcg every two days, which was fine but didn't feel like enough. I decided to move up to 250 mcg every 2 days, it seems to be okay so far. I will see as time goes on though. I plan on doing a complete blood work of all my electrolytes and b vitamins, I want to make sure I address any particular issues for the benefit of my health. My goal is to bring my T levels back to something acceptable, to do so will require a variety of work. All of which I am ready to take on.

    Aside from that urges are scarce for the time being. Nearing a year of freedom from MO.

    Stay strong friends!

    I’ve failed my big challenge…

    I’m sitting alone in my hotel room after I’ve PMO.

    I think I might need to take some kind of break from the LOTR challenge because I have nothing but zero days for the last couple of days. And I just cant do it anymore.

    I will return after I’ve solved a couple of things with myself.

    I know the feeling, we have all been there and relapse is exhausting. My recommendation is to keep trying.
     
  14. Hello folks. I've been out for a few days but I hope to start making regular check-ins again. I like reading y'all's posts but I'm not about to go back and read 15 pages at once.

    I had a good 7-day streak thanks to a tech/internet fast, and then I blew it once that was over. Now I just finished Day 2.

    St. Anthony of the Desert, pray for us!

    Check in Day 1
    Yesterday was a tiring day. Had an early shift and felt like having enough time to finish some of my homework and finances. Ended up on listening to some YouTube videos. I don't know why I am most of the time listen to YouTube videos and not watching them. I ended up laying in my bed uncomfortable and listening half asleep and half awake until it was really late. I could not decide to get up and do something I just got up, made myself ready to sleep and slept.

    I woke up several times during night only to fall asleep again. Felt really stupid and today I have to figure out what to dos I have to prioritize. I know that I won't be able to do enough for school on Wednesday.

    I wish you a good day, feels good to write this staff down.

    Greetings
    J
