    Day 19

    Really enjoyed today, minimal urges and feeling pretty good about myself all day. Noticed that my urges resurfaced when I have to focus on something for a long period of time - like in a lecture today. I’m guessing this is because I used to use PMO as a distraction from anything boring or mundane, but now that I actually want to focus in lectures it’s quite annoying!
     
  4. Day 4 complete!

    Not much going on. I haven't been running very frequently lately because of the winter weather, but today I got outside for a bit. My legs certainly felt as though they hadn't been worked out as much; I chose a route that's short, but with lots of hills. It was good exercise! I did eat a bit too much at dinner afterwards, thinking it was fine because of the exercise. So now I'm just going to wrap up my homework, brush my teeth, and hopefully get to bed early.

    Don't worry, I do! Don't you think the saints are alive in heaven?

    Night checking in
    Gonna stay more accountable for the next days. Even though I'm not with the hardest urges, I'm starting to reach the point where it gets hard to resist.
    But anyways, there's only one way to go: foward
    Lowness, temperance, strenght, hope and bravery!

    Remember to also "attack" the temptations! With truths like how bad and hollow you will feel after falling, and that your win is another step towards freedom.
    Also asking God to help, you know is great! But there is something that helped me a lot too (may be even more in certain times).
    Saying to the devil things like, "I renounce to you", "I'm no longer your slave", "you're our enemy, leave".

    Hey! Just wanted to tell you (before sleep ) to consider to quit videogames, they are a huge dopamine source and will make your journey much harder.
    Talking for personal experience, since I left them (and other bad dopamine sources) not only I'm stronger against temptations, but my life is much better!

    Day 37 complete!

    doing okay, my hornynes has risen a bit, but I manage to control myself. Gonna try working without cofee today. My wife is getting depresed, because she isn’t doing the things she wanted to do on her university wacation and maybe because I started working from the office. I want to cheer her up, but the new job takes away a lot of energy.

    I think they are, but I don’t think they hear us, because only God is omnipresent. You are talking to someone who is not here and God who is here is thinking to himself: ‘do you want me to deliver him a message, or what is going on here?’

    Day 332 no PMO. Got outside on a beautiful day yesterday. Walked almost 7 miles. I was alone last night for a few hours but had zero temptations. I’ve been listening to the book Every Man’s Battle and it’s pretty good. Have you guys read it? What did you think?

    The number of posts seems to have gone down over the last 48 hours. I wonder if this is because this is the time of the year when everyone gives up on their New Year’s Resolution. Remember fellowship… this is not some dumb New Year’s Resolution… this is taking back control of your life. This is important!!! We can do this!!!

    It’s a Christian book about PMO. I think it was written a good many years back so some of the content/examples are out of date but overall I think it is a good book. Talked a lot about starving your eyes from all temptation.

    Checking in Fellowship!! :)

    sorry for not replying on the last days, it´s my work project i told you about.

    being working in the morning, afternoon and night so this is getting very tiring. today, i need to accompany my father to the hospital so i´m not working on the project, only at night.

    well, the work is getting on me, and on the last days i slack my personal reboot motivation (reading memos), slack accountability, and last night before sleep i felt urges, porn thoughts crossing my mind, which lead to a moderate hesitation and disconfort. yellow flag! so today i decided first thing is to get back to the reboot procedures. i have read my personal memo and now doing accountability ;)

    being keeping my self-care habits running though, except for workouts, but i´m gonna that now ;)

    sorry for not being here Fellowship, but these days we got to give it all to comply the deadline.
    although i may not check with all your posts, i will try to do my own post.

    Have a great day!!!! :) Checking out.

    Starting this challenge!! Day 3 - Orc

    I have a doubt about cold showers. When you are talking about cold showers it includes countries with 4 seasons in winter? Where the water temperature can be 5ºC?
