    A new era is upon me, I shall endulge into a new mindset with the thought of self improvement always at the back of my head. I have been stuck in this circle, this neverending cycle of PM. I have tried quitting several times before with no luck - but finally, I genuinely feel ready to put this behind me. It has affected so much of my life.

    Currently an Orc on day 1.

    100 days mighty Fellowship!!!!

    Yes we can :emoji_fist:

    What can i say? first of all, it was a good day, little anxiety, even among crowds, so i´m feeling better day by day. it´s not a progressive rising, it´s more like an up and down rollercoaster, but it´s definitily going up.

    100 days my brothers, not a perfect streak, i fished lot´s of times and one time i even have a glance of nudity, but i can say that overall is a very good streak. everytime that i fished i did a proper retroactive journal entry, reflected upon that, and came out stronger on the other side.

    my energy is better, mental focus, motivation, all is better. on the emotional side i feel much more grounded, confident, and the anxiety is much lesser. some days the anxiety spikes for sure, but overall, it´s mainly moderate/low. and this is just in 100 days, imagine in 200... imagine having rebooted...

    What i can say from the bottom of my heart is that wasting time and energy on trowing your semen into a tissue, semen that uses lot´s of body resources and is flushed down the toilet, while your watching ladies getting decadent with man, that is just sad and nonsense. it´s absurd.

    what you can do with that time and energy will be 1000000000000 times better if you channel it in the right way. in my opinion this is the image that best resumes the nofap journey and why it should be part of every mans lifestyle, addicts or not. Have a great day my friends, love you all!! :)

    Day 135

    Just been in awe at the glory of God today; I preached this morning and was moved to tears thinking how much He has changed my life for the better, and I found it so encouraging in my continuing battle with PMO.

    My friend sang this song today and he absolutely smashed it. This isn’t him, but this song has always moved me:

    Day 15!
    Feels good to be a hobbit again, middle urges at the moment that I'm writing this status, trying to not be alone and hang out if is possible. Keep strong my brothers!

  9. Day 3 complete!

    I had an unexpected, unprovoked release of semen today, which was very strange considering how early in my streak I am, but everything is still good and clean in my mind. I will carry on!

    St. Monica, pray for us!

    One day I will watch that video about the flare method.

    Day 35 complete

    didn’t look at any more images. I don’t think I slept enough this weekend, but for now I feel rested.

    Start of Day 1! Woke up early, did all the Routines (Relaxation, Meditation, ColdShower,Hand-Stand,Self-Love,Gratitude) and I feel much better now! Im glad I have them. When PMO throws you into the mud again its always good to have sth that dont let you stay there too long!
    So back on the Horse now! No time for whining!

    Day zero

    Still feel like a free fall, but I’m putting a stop to that today.

    I’ve realized that I need some more drastic measures, so I’ve booked a WeWork styled open space workplace so I’ll have a place to stay in the next two weeks before I start my new job.

    I’ve started talking to a new AP and he is really helping me out, and I’ve started a new audiobook about self competition because I suck at that.

    Today is the first day, and I will be free even if I fall a hundred more times.

    Noone is completely free of evil brother - but focus on the good in you - you have much there - I know it - focus and let it grow! We all live here on this planet to make the right decisions and cleanse ourselves from sin. To come back to balance. But that does not mean we are all the same like the worst sinner. We are all connected. You cant carry the burden of world alone. Look after yourself! If you need someone to write to - Im always here. Btw I think the Quote from Leonard Cohen is real beautiful! Thx for sharing.
    Peace brother!
    :)

    Day 132. I may be a little sparse on checking in the next couple of weeks, as I have family coming in town for my daughter's wedding. This is my oldest child, the first to get married, and we are excited for her. Carry on, fellowship!

    Day 136

    Today was great but weird; I was speaking with a colleague while we were looking after a friend’s kid - I made a joke to the kid while he played a game on his phone and my colleague just lost it with laughter. I’m no comedian, but hearing her laugh like that made me incredibly attracted to her. It’s probably a selfish feeling that I need to mull over, and I won’t act on anything immediately, but I couldn’t help but feel content in that moment knowing that I’d brought her a moment of joy.

    Urges are much the same - no option for PMO today, and I had a good conversation with my old flatmate about porn and how he’s managing in his new marriage. It’s great to see him doing so well!
