    Day 446 no PMO. My wife was out late last night but I just went to bed with no issues. Didn’t even turn on the tv or look at my phone. All good.

    I was looking at a way of structuring my recovery after day 90, and this looks like a challenge I can get behind!

    I join you on day 81. Stay strong everyone.

    Checking in Fellowship!

    Not the best day, woke up very tired and moody. I slide a bit on the sugar yesterday, and that shit always leaves me cranky afterwards. the sleep wasn´t so good either. so today i´m keeping it light and protecting myself from dangerous situations. i will try to avoid the mistakes i did yesterday.

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

    Then you can read "The Porn Pandemic" by Andrew Ferebee. It also gives a great insight.

    Had a very productive week. Went outside everyday for a walk in nature. Although work is very stressful and busy, I genuinely felt happier last week than I've been for quite some time.

    Day 5

    I'm still knackered after a very stressful and high-pressure end to my uni degree. Took it very easy today, just stayed in and listened to some old John Prine records. Good stuff.

    I've had a devastating realisation. All of the evil that exists in the worst person on earth exists in me too. I have the same drive to abuse and violate people within me. I am no different from the worst sinner on earth. That is a painful and terrible realisation. But it's the only way I can make sense of the problem of evil.
    And that's why I must repent and choose to act against that inclination and pursue the good.
    John Prine is really good for the soul. Especially that last record "The Tree of Forgiveness". Needed that today. Check it out.

    I called a mental health emergency line this morning for the 7th time in a couple weeks. Been going through a very tumultuous time and it's hard to see a way forward. Maybe I just need someone to hug me and tell me that I'm loved. Maybe the best I can do is hug myself and tell myself that I'm loved. That no matter what, I love myself and I'm worthy of love.

    I'll let Leonard Cohen say it for me:
    "Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack, a crack in everything
    That's how the light gets in."

    Day 134

    Quite a few conversations about relationships today, all with different people. Some are encouraging me to consider a girl at church but I have to keep explaining I won’t ask someone out on the premise that they may simply like me - I would rather see them as more than a friend before going any further.

    All these conversations really play on my urges; the feeling of being wanted by the other sex isn’t something I’m especially used to, but more and more I find people acting surprised I’m single or discussing my options with me. I really don’t enjoy it as I then struggle to look at women without considering them sexually, something I’d rather avoid as much as possible.

    Yesterday, as i said before, was hard. I felt very anxious and wanated to fap, and when i controlled that feel, i wanted to install an app date so i can meet with a girl. I think my brain was saying: you dont gonna fap, so have sex at least motherfucker. And i said NO of course. Anyways, day 26 complete

  18. Day 2 complete!

    Today was good! I hung out with my dad again in the morning, went to get lunch with a couple priest friends, ran in the afternoon, and had a really nice burst of creative writing after dinner. It's not always nearly that easy, but filling up your day with wholesome interactions is a great way to avoid urges. Don't be bored! The devil finds work for idle hands to do.

    @zusya Consider this your hug, brother. School and exams are tough; make sure to remind yourself why you're doing it and what good you hope to achieve as a further result of your accomplishments. Everything you said about all the world's evil being within yourself applies to goodness as well.

    St. Matthias the Apostle, pray for us!

    I was looking at google images to get visual info, but then suddenly searcher for butt images, didn’t see any thing explicit. But today I looked for girl images again. I will stop, because it’s not good for me
