    Day 61

    Very tired today, back at college which meant I was sitting down for most of the day. No urges, time for bed!

  4. Day 3 complete.

    I gave in to MO last Sunday morning, but since then the urges have been minimal. It makes me very proud and inspired to see guys who are making good progress, continually pushing themselves and overcoming their limits. At the same time, it makes me wonder why I can't do the same. I'm pretty good about staying clean for 8-9 days and then getting no farther. What's holding me back from being able to fight to my full capacity so I can overcome these sins? Something must be missing and I need to figure out what; otherwise I'll keep tripping up at the same point and never growing. I hope it's not a sign of subconscious despair, thinking ahead of time that it's hopeless and I shouldn't bother putting forth a 100% effort.

    St. Joseph, pray for us.

    Day 79 complete!

    It feels great to live another day without PM. I still have fantasies about my wife, but they are getting fewer.


    For me (when I was stuck in your position) the problem was fantasies. I wasn’t watching P in the real world, but I was creating it in my head. So you have to mortify the part of your sexuality that gives rise to the urges, by avoiding temptation in your head and outside of it. And you have to like not being in control of your urges, you have to like the power to say no to a sexy girl. But it’s just theory, you have to make it work on your own :D

    NoFap can be easier than we thing. Once we find the way to fight this battle and get tailwind through a longer streak resisting urges gets easier. This should give us hope that freedom and the rewiring of our brains is possible. Nevertheless we have to stay vigilant and humble no matter how long our streak is.

    Maybe its a fear of changes, of dying of the old you to which you attached that holds you back. You want to eat your cake and still have it. Be like a seed that falls into soil and dies so that it can live.

    Come on bro , pluck the courage and leave the old behind, like Sam did. That's the only way.

    Hey guys Im back again ... was ashamed and quite depressed lately and couldnt reach more than 3/4 days.
    Now Im on day 3 - its was kinda dumb to not use this forum anymore for the reason to be ashamed of my (not so huge) progress. Progress is progress it wont matter in the end as long as I keep going tryin' and fightin'!

    hope you have a good day - stay strong!
    And let us pray for evryone who hasnt!

    Day 374 no PMO. Most of the day went well. Had a fight with my wife last night so my day ended badly. I’m ready to make today a good day. Good luck out there everyone.

    Ork on day 5 here. Hasn't been too bad this week but I am experiencing strong urges today. My smartphone is my main source of P but I knocked it in to the bath a few days ago and water got in to the cracked screen so it is unusable, so I am using a basic Nokia which has terrible Internet connection. This has definitely helped me stay away from P. I rarely look at p on my tablet so don't have such a strong association with it. I am trying hard to resist doing that today with my urges.

    I will be getting new smartphone in 2 weeks. I really don't want to use that for P, not even once. I'm hoping if I stay away from it without peeking then I will build the strength to keep that phone p free. Using a phone for that definitely brings many problems. When I'm showing someone some photos I've taken I'm paranoid there's going to be a p pic that I forgot to delete.

    Checking in Fellowship Friends,

    Day 406 free of MO and day 15 free of porn.

    I had a rough night, felt sick and had insomnia. The cherry on top of the cake was that I had a nocturnal emission, out of my control I suppose. Cumulative stress paired with insomnia, is a recipe for an emission.

    Not feeling the best today, but not the worst either.

    The good news is, I'm starting my Fellowship Journey today as a Hobbit!

    Stay Strong!

    Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach…The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours. -Ayn Rand

    15 days :emoji_star2: You decide to destroy the porn ring! You´re a Hobbit now. You must take the ring to the place where he was made, Mount Doom. You left Hobbiton heading for Bree.
