    Day 6 complete

    I felt a bit more attracted to women than usual. It was hard not to look a woman when I notice that she is really pretty. That desire to look at a woman feels like a genuine need and it feels sad not to fullfil your genuine need. Maybe it feels genuine, because I don’t image having sex with these women ar anything like that. But that need still comes from the simple primal desire to mate. Realising this helps to say ‘No’. It is important to unmask these ‘genuine need’ baits, because under this mask hides a ruthless primal beast that will have no pitty on you.

    Day 1 as an Orc complete.

    Over the last couple of days, I've been trying to figure out how I ended up falling while being so vigilant.
    Yes, I had urges, but not so bad that I couldn't have managed to ignore/suppress... I had done it before, just a day earlier in fact. I was being vigilant. So why did I slip up?
    I think I've come to a realization: I was in a weakened state of mind.
    I couldn't recognize it at the time... this is only happening in hindsight because I feel like proper crap today.
    It's been slowly building over the last couple of weeks.
    So, I believe that's why I fell to my usual "coping mechanism" i.e Prawn.
    There's not much I can do other than keep pushing ahead to feel better mentally as I also push ahead with my goals.
    One step at a time.
    Stay vigilant.

    Day 478 no PMO. Yesterday was a tough day. One of my employees quit and I fired another one. Overall I handled it well I think. I just reminded myself that God has a plan, I don’t know what his plan is, but overall it is for the good of the world. Might not be for my good but that’s ok. The world isn’t just about me.

    no, that´s not the point. you must have a clear intention to find it in order to delete it. fishing would be an excuse to stumble across something. this is not an excuse, it´s a direct intention. it´s better to find on purpose and delete it, instead of accidently stumble across on it, and risk loosing ground.

    plus, there´s no point in having these things stored, they are literally waiting to be found again.

    I have been experiencing unbearable pain in my heart for as long as I can remember. I really don't know what to do. I had been planning to stay with a friend from tomorrow til Sunday, along with a bunch of other people from my church, but I really don't think I'm up to it. The girl I still have feelings for will be there and I dread the thought of spending four days around her. I'm still terribly heartbroken over her and the pain is driving me crazy. I don't think it would be a good idea for me to go there.

    I didn't know what to do about the pain. I tried talking to people, I even left the house and went shopping, read some books, anything to try and help myself feel better, but the pain wouldn't go away. I get down on my knees and pray, I read holy scripture, I'm even on antidepressants at the moment.

    But the only thing that seems to take away the pain at the moment is PMO. It's the only thing that makes me feel at ease and gets rid of the pressure. But that's not good. I imagine this is gonna come back and bite me on the arse very soon.

    I don't know how to bail out of this trip to my friend's place, as it won't be the first time I've bailed on something this girl has gone to. But I really don't think I can do it. Maybe the best thing for it is to say honestly on the group chat "Sorry guys, I'm feeling very under the weather at the moment so I don't think I'm up to it. " Which is true. My mental health has been a travesty for as long as I can remember and I don't think it would do me much good to go there and potentially screw myself up even more.

    What I'd like to now more than anything is just sit somewhere and chill with some books: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, A Man Called Ove and Turtles All the Way Down, and maybe The 100-Year-Old Man Who Jumped Out of a Window and Disappeared. Think it would do me good to read those kinds of wholesome, life-affirming books.

    And I know that what I want more than anything is to find somebody to love, somebody to build a life with, and the PMO dependency is for the most part a way to numb myself to the unbearable pain of loneliness and heartbreak. I have moments where I feel hopeful, that there is somebody out there for me, but in my low moments I get stuck in my head and that only takes me deeper into the labyrinth.

  18. Uhu, I'm Uruk hai now.

    I really love my job, and because of it, a time goes really fast and I don't usually have urges during the working hours, because I'm in the "flow"
