    This is so fkng true, my mom and my granpa say a quote that i like: "the best is enemy of good" that is a derivation(later i knew) of voltaire quote: "Perfection is the enemy of good". We as human are imperfect, not like the fkns series we watch where the protagonist is fkng genius and do everything good, so perfection is an illusion.

    Day 125

    Had a moment in the early afternoon where I almost considered relapsing, but soon snapped out of it. Overall today has been fantastic; steady day at college, leg workout, pub with friends, and a great chat with a fellow trainee about PMO and sexual morality in general.

    Started reading Jordan Peterson’s ‘12 Rules for Life’ and really enjoying it, will post a proper review once I’ve finished the book.

    Well, about two years ago I would PMO about 3 days every two weeks. This slowly improved until about a year ago, where I started to get over twenty days pretty consistently. But for the past year, I usually have a relapse around day 20-30.

    So yes, I am happy with the improvement, but I feel like I am failing to reach the next level. Once a really strong urge hits after 20+ days, I usually fall.

  6. Day 6 complete!

    I meant to go swimming today, but some buddies invited me to watch a movie with them and I figured that would be a nicer thing to do. I'll run tomorrow, since my long-term goal is to run every other day, but I think I'll still get to the pool on Saturday. Swimming is really great exercise imo because it's not too intensive, but it works a lot of muscle groups and even things like your cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Urges weren't bad today either. Almost had a slip in the morning but I made myself aware of how much I absolutely did not want to mess this up.

    St. Maria Goretti, pray for us!

    Excellent post. Very relatable. The justification stage is a hard one to overcome. Hope it's helped you get past the desire to fap now.

  18. day 26

    I am officially fighting the Ringwraiths on Weathertop. you're my Fellowship so I'm not waiting for a magnificent Aragorn or a headstrong beautiful Arwen to save me. can I resist the call of the one PMO ring as the demons sniff me out?

    so far, no temptations in the mind thankfully. today I'm headed out of town for a friend's wedding. it should be a fun time. I have things to say here but there's no time today. tomorrow maybe.

    everyone have a good Friday. stay strong, God bless
