  1. I know that feeling, had that last weekend after I had my own reset, couldn't be arsed to do much of anything. My advice is to practice a mix of meditation, cold showers, and workout (even if it's just a light one); they can be a slog when you're first starting out, but trust me, the results are worth it and you'd be surprised how much they work.
     
  2. Day 6

    Pretty much slept most of the day and through the night after another hard week. I actually had a couple of dreams that tried tempting me into doing the dirty, but nothing came out of it (no pun). I'm okay now, everything is still calm.

    Day 16!
    Still in vacations, today I will return to home. Normal urges today. I have to control my stay in social networks, there are a lot of content that is a trigger.

    Keeping strong!

    Failed . I failed on day 3 . No porn but I couldn't handle the stress I was going through and then I fapped . Probably need to start meditating once again.
    Any other tips to get through the initial days of nofap.

    Alright! doing the end of the week round. Still good, though I'm feeling some strong urges as I'm illogically putting to much pressure on me for some personal project but still getting some good data. Let the Gods see us succeed!

    You just need to put on work so you don't even think about it, and avoid the phone or what causes PMO at your sleeping time.
    Do something workout, run, read, learn something develop your life system.
    Its about about the system not the goal

    But the things is that I have a semester exam coming in about a week plus a lot of records and assignments to submit so it has been difficult for me to just relax in the past few days.

    Use it as distraction from PMO, not what causes it.
    Try to change your view

    Yeah I like the idea maybe I should not be very focused on meeting the timeline rather I should just relax and keep doing my work .

    Look, dude its okay to fail, its the process not the goal, so if you would be relaxed that better be for the next hole life not for the next day or the next year ... Better focus and plane
    I would like to recommend some people to watch such as Gary vaynerchuk and Jordan b Peterson.
    Be positive, stay positive for ever

    Day 5. Orcs have no appreciation for beauty. Porn twists and abuses beauty, eventually making one go blind to it.
    I want relearn appreciating the true beauty of a woman, of nature, of art and of life in general with all its limitations and imperfections.

    3 days.

    Spent the day helping out a friend settle in to his new apartment, assembling some furnitures, etc.

    I feel quite anxious about the upcoming work week, I have a meeting with my manager tomorrow and I haven't really been on top of my tasks lately. Normally, PMO would be a way to self-medicate in these situations, similar to when I was a student and didn't feel I was doing good in the courses. However, after many years I've realised that PMO is an unhealthy way of dealing with these kinds of feelings - I just need to face the raw reality and its consequences without self-medication, no matter how uncomfortable it gets.

    Check in for day 47 with this LOTR thought from Haldir:

    “The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”

    Let love grow the greater. It will triumph over perils and dark places and grief.
