    Checking in.

    Today was a good day, i was able to study for 6hrs and for that i'm grateful. I had some quick urges, they appear like a flash and go away quickly as well; i gotta be honest, i'm a little afraid of'em.

    That's why i'm keeping myself mindful as much as i can be. Always vigilant.

    @Redemptionisrequired congrats on your 1yr mark!

    Strenght & Honor!

    Day 1

    Ugh, very tired and drained, yet I'm in fairly good spirits. I've gotten some good things done today and am looking forward to a home workout and some cold shower water before bed.

    Nice recommendation, I'll search for it. Also, there's a book that helped me in defining my reasons to quit: Captured by a better vision: living pornfree, from Tim Chester. It's really deep and goes down to very root of the sin of sexual immorality.

    Welcome bro!
    Where I live, we have winters of less than 0°C and summers that reach 40°C, so I can answer this question with some property. When it's hot, cold showers lose all its power, but in the winters they are deep torture. I don't recommend to take a totally cold shower when the temperature is under 10°C. What I do is that I take a coldER shower, with the water just a little bit less cold by the warming. Of course, it has to be discomforting, otherwise it won't work. But taking it at extreme temperatures is not wise, even more considering a now prepared guy.

    Day 28!
    Just checking in. Had a tough day, since I slept pretty badly last night. Studied the whole day even though, and ended up with a damn headache.
    I gotta get my sleep routine back on track!

    Day 38 complete.

    No phishing. No desire to masturbate, only to have wild sex (like this ever happens :D).

    My routine is disbalanced by my new job, I am not reading the bible I am barely praying, still having cold showers and evening reading. And time just flies by, this week feels like one long day, I barely had any free time. Relationship with my wife went to the colder side and I feel so much attraction towards her. This weekend I will adjust my routine, to have more time for my wife and myself, don’t know how yet.

    @Redemptionisrequired congrats! And great speech.

    Checkin in Day 3! Now I put on some armour. Urges. They'll be back soon enough, hordes of them ... but I'll beat them.

    Day 333 no PMO. 33 is my favorite number so I really like the look of 333 days. Good day yesterday. Had a productive day at work and also got some good time in with my daughters.

    Congratulations and thank you brother! I couldn't agree more.

    I see this as a great (maybe the greatest) weakness of our brain, "the easy way"; and sadly the ones in power, the "kings" of this world, shamelessly use this on their advantage.

    Hello Fellowship.

    well, i blew it. all those days of bad habits and stress come to an end as i slipped today to hardcore porn. little sleep yesterday and today i was so dizzy that i jumped right into pmo :(

    just one time though, so, so far, no big damage taken.

    i´m a bit dissapointed as this kind of slips happened to me before. but once again i couldn´t prevent it :(. so i recommited myself to always prioritize the reboot! no matter what my life circunstances are.

    gonna shut down the counter as it really hurts to see that zero, and i know that i´ve recovered well so far and doing well on my path. this is just a bump in the road.

    not sure what is my stance here on the challenge, but i hope time can tell.

    Meanwhile, have a good day. be well my friends.
