    Day 5!
    Low urges yestarday, I hanged out with friends so was a good nigth. I notice something, the last time that I hanged out with friends and drunk so much beer (yestarday was the same case) and, I returned really horny. Yestarday was not the same. I associate the PMO necessity with alcohol, but maybe was other reason. Knowing ourself is key to win this war, so I will analize more deeply the situation.

    Keep strong my brothers.

    Guys I need help getting back on the horse. Help me please. I need advice. One small suggestion and I am back watching porn. One small hook gets me every time. Some of you big streakers who want to return something to the community, help me get back up please. I am so fucking weak and don't know how to do this anymore. My life is shit and there is nothing to look forward to. I lay in bed all day because my roommate sleeps in the living room all day. I can't do anything because of his all night schedule. He sleeps all day. I can't live like him. Theres no where to go and I don't have money to spend. Everything is pointless. I don't even care about that stuff right now. I just want to stop watching porn compulsively. I know you guys can't make me recover, so I take responsibility for my actions. Help me though, somehow.

    126 days my brothers!! Good day, lot´s of good activities and socialization.

    Well, we had a couple of non detected resets on the Fellowship today. My brothers and my friends, the rules of the LOTR challenge are, as you know:

    "The journey will take 485 days (+15) in nofap (no porn, no porn subs, no masturbation, no edging, no paid sex)"

    Now i know the rules are strict. The challenge is hard, wether in the amount of time of (500 days), wether in the precision required: no porn, no porn subs, no masturbation, no edging, no paid sex.

    but from my experience, from what i learned with fapstronauts, experts and coachs, i can honestly say that is better to have a tight criteria than a loose one. The overall goal as you might imagine, is that you solely derive sexual activity from your partner. nothing else. all else is doing you bad, even if you don´t realize it at first.

    if you don´t have a partner, then you should practice hardmode, and transmute sexual energy when it builds up.

    I want everybody here to break free from porn and masturbation, have no doubts. and if sometimes i call people out, that´s exactly what i would want if i was on that side.

    We have a big and very heterogeneous group here. Some people are beginners, some have average experience, and some have a lot of experience. I don´t expect that all people understand or accept these rules, but like i said they were build after years of suffering, work and knowledge, that clearly pointed out that the tighter the criteria, the better the reboot, and the more chances of sucess.

    I hope you understand. Thanks for me reading me brothers.

    Day 161

    Today has been slightly easier, still feeling a little down but urges were pretty straightforward to deal with - there’s no way I want to relapse no matter how dark things get.

    Spent a good evening making pizza with my mate, helped to pick me up. Out for a curry tomorrow evening so need to get a lot of cardio done in the morning!

    0 days >> Nazgûl (You were once a man, a King, now fallen to the power of PMO)


    I return to report my progress to the fellowship. Obviously I have once again fallen into the shadows, but not all my news is bad news.

    Since I last posted I am officially done with my job which is a big relief and I have been moving into a new era. What this new era will bring I do not know for certain, but so far I've been doing some good things. I've been getting up early (7am) daily, working out daily again, listening to educational audio books (currently working on the Robert Greene books) and doing hypnosis again also. I now need to get nofap back into the mix and I'll have what I've found to be the best daily habits I've had so far back working for me

    It'll be my birthday on the 18th and I'd really like to make that a PMO free year because I just think I clearly need it at this point. If I can get a head start now then I'll take it even though I was tempted to give myself free reign till then. Gotta keep that addicted brain at bay!

    Day 16 as an Hobbit, complete! :emoji_zap:
    Yesterday, I thrice fought the urge/temptation to look at a couple of compromising website.
    At one point I even entered the address, but quickly closed it, got up and walked away. Well I closed it of my own volition, but was immediately interrupted by something that needed me to leave my desk. A "saved by the bell" sort of situation really.
    It's a bit ridiculous how easy it is to slip and fall the exact same way, so many times.

    Good morning, following brothers!
    Temptation has been hitting me hard lately, but I'm giving my best in not letting myself give in. I've been waking up early, and I really want to make a habit out of this, cuz it's great to see the day rise. It remembers me of a Bible proverb:
    "But the path of the just is as the shining light, That shineth more and more unto the perfect day." Proverbs 4:18

    May our lives keep getting brighter as we abandon sinful practices.
