    Day 8! an Uruk - Hai - I feel stronger and faster, but I´m still a slave to the PMO ring. A desire arises to break free from its chains.

    I don't have strong urges but I have a lot of anxiety, which doesn't allow me to work well.

    Today I installed a porn blocker and I tested it! Well, it didn't block one of the sites, and it was terrible. The urge not to close the site or to open it again was very strong. This thing is not trivial. I am right now. But what a scary moment.

    Day 25

    I’ve made it safely to the watchtower of Amon Sûl - so exciting to be close to a full month without PMO!

    Had a decent day at work, received some news that had me pretty miffed in the morning but soon accepted the situation for what it is and I intend to make the most of it. Been falling behind in my Bible reading so I need to get back on track with that, it’s the only thing that will truly sustain me on the rest of my journey.

    Night checking in
    Got sick again... I think that I didn't recoverd well since friday and ended up stressing my body with a pool party and poor eating, so I'm going to take my recovering serious this time and rest as it's needed. Also, I'll be home alone for the next two days and this is huge trigger. I hope I'll pass through that time without relapsing

    Avoid sugar, coffeine, drugs & alcohol while you're alone. I found out those are my triggers. May be triggers for someone else as well.

    Day 173

    I think I have a little body/workout "obsession". I'm sure I traded the habits of PMO, tv series, videogames, etc, for the habit of working out and fitness culture...
    I admit that I might have a problem but right now it's one of my biggest weapons to fight PMO and bad dopamine sources.

    Day 43 complete.

    First time in a long time I was alone in my home. I didn’t jave an urge to M or watch P, but I had an urge to pull out my dick and start swinging. It’s a strange urge, it comes frome the same root as MO.
    I am not looking at girls profiles or phishing, but I want to go further and remove thoughts about sex in my head, they are so frequent. It’s hard to do. Does any one have any good material, on removing unwaned thoughts?

    I went through that same thing with a girl on Snapchat a bit over a year ago. I didn't have any friends and wasn't doing much with my life. She would eat up my attention (and the attention of tons of other guys I'm sure). It's a sickness all in itself that social media girl thing... I ended up just cutting her off randomly after she started getting kinda rude with me. Really glad I don't use Snapchat anymore honestly.

    Welcome back brother! I was wondering where you were.
     
  11. It’s great you are making progress in this battle because the further you distance yourself from this unhealthy habit, the more in control you will be of your emotions. Wishing you the best and here for you on this journey!

    It just means that you are one of the ones doing the work. As long as you don't wear your body out to the point of damaging it (I've done that) then it probably isn't a problem.

    Day 3

    Not an interesting day, but I’m still in the game and that’s what matters.

    I went on a mall mission to get socks so I’ll be better prepared when I start walking again. I think my feet are getting a bit better, but my left heel really doesn't like being moved certain ways. I got a six pack (used to be beer, now I’m a sock guy) of these generic looking black ones. The stats are as follows:

    • Deep heel construction provides excellent fit and prevents slippage
    • Arch band for secure fit
    • Mesh venting for breathability
    • Comfort toe seam
    • Cushioned sole for comfort and absorbency
    • Comfort top stays up

    The materials consist of: 51% Polyester, 45% Cotton, 2% Nylon, 2% Spandex

    They’re nothing fancy, but they’ll get the job done well enough I expect.

    I stopped to grab a grandpa burger at A&W in the food court. I’m trying to eat out a lot less than I used to, but I was hungry and really needed to get some protein in me after working out earlier in the day. Speaking of which I was able to reach my push-up goal again this time, so some strength is coming back.

    It looked like this girl was giving me eyes on the bus. I didn’t do anything though of course… Whatever, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. Right now I could probably do without lust that has no emotion attached to it anyway. My porn induced erectile dysfunction is so bad anyway that I probably couldn't do anything even if I tried.

    I’m glad I got out a bit and got the socks like I said I was going to. I also did laundry as I’d like to do it every Tuesday. I like it when I actually do what I say I’m going to do. Tomorrow I will read over my previous entries and make sure I am doing all I can!

    I still listened to “Your Brain on Porn” today, but as I can’t walk much I just laid on the bed and listened. I ended up falling asleep! I fall asleep so much easier than I once did. Still finished it though. I might try switching to a different audio tomorrow as I’ve listened to “Your Brain on Porn” a number of times now. I will go back though as I don’t feel I’ve gotten all I can from it yet.

    My psoriasis seems to be gradually getting better. I’ve been showering extra and making sure I wash my face. It seems to be helping as my skin feels less dry and tight and the flaking is starting to reduce.

    I better get to my affirmations now. I don’t really wanna do it, but I need it to become habit. Remember that you don’t need porn!

    Day 5.

    Purposeful and directed.

    This is why I isolate myself. I just cant stand the energy of other people. A friend came over and laid around whole day. He bending over that phone and watching crap on facebook TV and what not, that got on my nerve. it's incredibly hard to find someone who you relate to, and when you don't there's no choice but to cut everybody. Isolation however has it's own price. I think I'm good on my own.

    Checking in... I'm holding strong.

    I'm having a minor issue, would like to know if you guys had it as well: i'm sexualizing every "attractive" woman i see, and i don't like it, specially when i'm at the gym... I don't get boners from just looking and stuff but my mind start to race when those indiscreet women start squatin' with their backs turned to me, i find it very disturbing!!! Do you guys have some strategies to stop sexualizing random women you see?
