    Day 5
    Today is going to be hard.
    Last night I saw some triggering images, (some girls at the gym) and even after looking away and not trying to look again or anything, I still could not help feeling crazy urges when I got home.

    I came home from the gym at 21:00 after a full day of doing good things so I was tired but in a good way but I didn't have the energy to do some good habits like meditation or anything like that.

    Ended up just watching a 25 minutes long YouTube video of how to change a horseshoe, the most untriggering video in the world:cool:
    I'm sure it would come in handy one day.:D

    but I woke up with that girl on my mind, so i know i have to be extra safe today.

    Day 365 no PMO!!! I’ve wondered for years now if I would ever get here. Feels like a HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT. Interesting that there is not an official change of rank at the 1 year mark. Guess I’ll have to hang in there for another ten days. Next big goal for me will be no PMO in 2022.

    Good day yesterday. I’ve been walking a lot and listing to The first LOTR book. Walking has been great to fill the alone time. It gives me something to do that I enjoy when everyone else is busy and keeps me far removed from thoughts of sadness and PMO.

    Congratulations, terrific achievement! I'm currently wondering if I'm ever gonna get there, but you are one of many that has shown me that it is perfectly possible.

    Day 7. Orcs are cruel, sadistic, black-hearted, vicious, and hateful of everybody and everything. They hate themselves, and have an even deeper secret hatred for their master, thus resulting as a violent and warlike race in a perpetual state of chaos with itself and others.

    Porn leads to chaos too. Porn makes one feel disgusted with oneself or even hate oneself and if you can't love yourself, you can't love the people around you either.

    I want to have an open truly loving heart for everyone, especially for porn stars. This may sound counterintuitive but I am convinced if one has true love for porn stars, one not desire to watch them disrespect themselves anymore and thus never watch porn again.

    Day 36

    Once more time I am reporting early because I need to write.

    I woke up with a persistent and increasing urge that didn't go away yesterday. It was just a craving for masturbation, not just an urge but a strong desire. Well... Cold Shower... It is incredible how you can feel relief after it, more or less in the same way as if you would relapse.

    I felt right for some hours, but eventually, the thing returned. I was arguing in my mind as I needed it, really I needed it. Then at some point, I thought. "Ok, you relapse and fulfill your desire... For how long?" The urge lowered a lot after that. I don't want to be a slave; acting now guarantees that I'll feel the same and guilty days after.

    At this point of the streak, I am confronting one of the problems related to this addiction. What produces urges in me. Because it is a little difference between that and a trigger. Due to porn addiction, I have been developing cravings for "things" that are not morally acceptable or even are not legal. Even though I have been 36 days without PMO and over 60 days without porn, I discovered that this is not enough and I need to work on this. I began yesterday to continue repeating myself, "this is not right" when such images, remember or cravings appear. It is helping. Hoping when I reach 90 days I will be in better shape about this.

    I feel better after writing it. First time btw.

    On the other hand, since day 15 more or less I am sleeping a lot better and I fall asleep early.

    And the journey continues...

    This is about day two for me.

    I am going to concentrate on fighting crime, literally. Virtually always, free pornography watching is crime. If my computer pulled up a tube site, for example, and it showed any images of, say, someone under 18, then I was guilty of child pornography. We need to make sure we don't commit offenses. This is the perspective I am taking now. It helps me to realize the seriousness of pm, knowing that it often leads people to do things that would land them in prison if caught.

    At the same time, I do believe that I can treat myself gently.

    I will treat myself with kindness and gentleness. I will take one day at a time as well, while keeping my goal of never masturbating again in mind. I think concentrating on both the end goal and the present will help me. I especially need to take small bites for now, and again, to be nice about it.

    I will be keeping all this in mind, it is a reminder to myself as much as to anyone else.

    Be well!

    Congratulations to all who have become greater beings than Uruk-Hai. I made it to Hobbit only once, I am ashamed to admit.

    Day 18 reached!
    Got up early, worked out and ate helthy. Trying to drink 2 litters of water every day to be more healthy. Working every day in my self control and discipline. Keep strong my brothers and sisters!

  19. Well that makes two of us. :)

    Day 1.
    Back to being an orc again, thankfully not suffering any chasers.

    I've started getting into the Lord of the Rings books through an audiobook on youtube. So far I'm digging it, even put a smile on my face.
