    Day 442 no PMO. I’m still in a very stressful stage of life but I’m handling it relatively well I think. I keep telling myself that God has a plan that I don’t understand and that whatever happens is for the ultimate good.

    Day zero

    Apparently my new challenge is not PMO, but just PM and edging. And I fucking hate it. Yesterday I’ve done everything great, even before going home where I knew that I would have the house to myself. I've recorded messages for myself, telling myself what to do and not to do and why I shouldn’t watch porn. It started great and I’ve done everything right for a couple of hours but after I’ve finished like 80% of everything that I wanted to do that day I just got the worst urge and even knowing everything it felt like an other body experience.

    I’m eating well, going to bed and getting up at the same time everyday and going to the gym every other day. I even meditated that day. And still I’ve spent about an hour on the toilet alone in my house looking at porn.

    I don’t know what am I doing wrong, but fuck I hate feeling this weak.

    Thank you friend. Godspeed to you too.
     
  5. day 1

    no more Ringwraith phase, I am now an Orc. the streak has recommenced so there's no real urge to indulge anything. the demon isn't going to attack now. let's wait till I get back to how long the last streak was and we'll figure that out then.

    I did cardio for the first time since I was out of town for the wedding last week, and my rage of having relapsed propelled me to go for an hour on the cycle. Eminem bombing in my headphones, I definitely recommend this song:



    it's a fun song about girls being shallow with him and not really loving him for who he is. I think we gents have experienced that with women for sure. and the beat is classic Dr. Dre.

    otherwise besides that, not much to report. for a week, I have to look like an elf whose face was burned off so we'll deal with that.
    stay strong, God bless.
     
  6. my brother. thank you for the encouragement, and I know you get what I meant about the 'missing out' feeling I got at the wedding. it sucks, but it's a matter of inner fortitude to be happy despite not having what we want. we wouldn't be fighting here if it was easy.

    you're going to do great writing your sermon. I read your posts everyday, 129 days is phenomenal. not easy at all, I can imagine!
    we'll keep up the good fight together. let's get it, God willing!!

    95 days Fellowship :emoji_muscle:

    Feeling really tired and demotivated today, i think i abuse on sugar yesterday, and today i´m paying the price. i also slept poorly. I´m gonna correct that tonight.

    On the other hand, i´m in flatline again, so no temptations, and no urges :D

    Nothing more to add. Have a great day my friends :)

    Day 22! Feeling a bit lethargic today and got a busy couple of weeks ahead but gotta keep all of what I've been working towards in mind and not give in to what used to be a massive trigger... Stress!

    Hope everyone is doing well :)

    Dude to me it seems your thinking is kinda negative (I use to think like that from time to time) - Focus on the good things - dont beat yourself up pls - Feeling weak is sth normal. Everyone does feel weak from time to time. Accept it as part of yourself. Nobody is perfect. Easy said I know. Keep it up!
    Greets!

    Day 38 / 1000.

    Struggled to write 1000 next to day count. It's my dream to go 1000 days free but it's a stupid and unrealistic dream. But if I won't believe, who will? If animation taught me something, even craziest dreams come true. So, who knows... :D

    Whatever happens, this will be interesting road. I hope you'll be somewhere around, working on your dreams.



    :emoji_zap::emoji_notes::emoji_chains::emoji_running_shirt_with_sash::emoji_horse:

    Stuff that should help to not pmo:
    1. No internet for recreational purposes until 6 pm.
    2. Waking up on the same time every day.

    Day 1

    I'm grateful for this day. I decided something had to change after my relapse yesterday, so I signed up to a 21 day PMO recovery course on Strive21.com. I feel hopeful about it. One of the first things they ask you to do is to find an accountability partner for the duration of the course. I thought throughout the day about who would be a good accountability partner for me, and then when I got home in the evening I realised I have one friend who I can be totally honest with about everything, and who is honest with me. So I texted him to ask him to be my accountability partner, and within seconds he replied with "sure".

    Had a quick call with him to agree how we would approach the accountability partner thing, and it was great to talk to him and I'm super grateful to have his support. Looking forward to these 21 days.

    Godspeed to ye all.
