  1. Day 5 complete!

    @til_im_free The world could always use more oncologists, that's for sure. I've had many friends say that a person usually enters med school without an idea of what he would like to do, and he figures it out as he studies all the different branches of medicine. It's cool that you have a plan already; hope it goes well!

    @a_unique_user Sorry to hear that, friend. If you're stuck in a loop, can you tell me one change you'll make next time to switch the track of the loop?

    Doing all right myself. I conducted a sort of self-examination around the middle of the afternoon and became aware that my general horniness level is pretty high right now. It's frustrating not being able to channel that sexual energy towards its proper end, but I know that I must find other ways of using it up. Exercise doesn't always do the trick for me but it's been helping this week. Now that school's back, my time for creative pursuits has gone way down.

    Our Lady of Knock, pray for us!

    Day 86 complete.

    Recently I had to use instagram to reach someone. And I saw that there are some sexy girls posting pictures of themselves and the next day I started loking at them, I did the same this morning. I need a reset for this reset. I will delete the app until I need it once again. And then delete it again after use. I guess it’s the lack of sleep that I gave into. I also wish I could delete my facebook account, but then some people can’t write me.

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    Day 0 free of PMO.

    I sorely relapsed, two MOs in the span of 24 hours to a porn substitute. I had a discussion with a trusted confidant, the individual in question placed a seed of doubt in my mind that the temptation demon exploited. That brilliant idea was "why not MO once in a while", it'll relieve your stress. Needless to say, the addicted mind jumped at the opportunity to relieve all the urges of the crush and ex that I've been having. Do I feel better? No, I feel disappointed, frail, tired and extremely upset for letting this happen and doubting myself.

    This last month has been rather dreadful, 460 days free of porn broken, 411 days free of MO broken, to 2 MO sessions and 20 days free of porn broken. Isildur would be happy, giving in to the temptation of the ring.

    I'm going to be taking some time away from nofap, from the internet really. I will return, just not for a little while. Just as the Ranger left Rivendell , I will be leaving to reflect on my own for a little while. There is much that I need work on. I aim to return stronger.

    Stay strong my friends.

    Quite an impossible task you set for yourself for we live very much in the digital age. I know that the wish to stay alone comes from crashed feeling of self-worth. Like if you don't want to contaminate your brothers with the perceived internal filth on the loose in your soul. The thing you need to do is to repent, to feel sorry for harm you done unto yourself and to everyone in your word. Your have to firmly renounce all lust-pmo and promise(and really mean it) to never do it again. Then God will forgive you your sin and you'll be born anew for the path you chose to walk.
    Psalm 51 :14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. 15O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. 16For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

    It is easy to binge in the 'mud' when you have fallen and all covered in it. You think what the hell, but you don't even know how much you've got to live. The ancient wisdom says that we should live every day as if it was our last-without regrets and amending wrongdoings asap. The binging is a shift in our view of ourselves to an animal side which like a pig or a dogtend to enjoy the 'mud' whilst walking on the path requires us to be and stay humans, to learn and to use our reason. Know that every day is a step to the future so which future another day of binging tales you to?...and you got to have a right view on the matter- every day on the path you can already be White wizard...it all depends on where your mind dwells at.

    so sorry for you bro :( come back to the Fellowship when you feel better (but keep some form accountability to prevent binging).

    Bro, overall, you´re not losing, you´re still winning!! you stayed hundreds of days clean from porn and masturbation, so you can do this for life. there´s no doubt about it.

    i think what you need to do is to develop coping skills to deal with stress and hurt:

    use the 3 minute breathing meditation to ground yourself. next, you attack the racionalization:

    "am i a guy who can keep masturbation under control?"
    "shit, am i a guy who wants masturbation in his life at all?!"

    the answer will be a quick "no" "no". so next you purify your desire:

    "ok, i still want something! so what do i really want?"

    and the answer will pop easily, maybe you´re tired, maybe your lonely, wanting to have fun, wanting to feel better, etc.... find the core desire, make an action plan for it (with good solutions), and follow through.

    I hope this helps :)
