    Day 20 complete

    I am still dealing with looking at/checking out women problem. My goal for now is to stop doing that. But I don’t have a strategy yet. I am open for suggestions. Not looking at any digital arousing content is going well for 20 days.

    Day 15 as a Hobbit complete! :emoji_star: My journey has begun!
    Yesterday was not the best day, but it was a good day... caught myself looking at and actively searching for pretty girls on Instagram! This always seems to happen when things start feeling good. I shall be careful.
    I plan on having an even better day!
    Cheers!


    "Speak Life!" Today, I am victorious!

    I totally agree that you must be careful out there on YouTube. I once fell after watching a video about the negative impacts of porn and right after YouTube played me a video that I would say was porn. I turned off the feature that automatically plays the next video but not sure how that works when you click on a playlist.

    Day 492 no PMO. Kida lost my cool yesterday as I was frustrated and feeling like my wife doesn’t support me or have my back. That’s probably mostly in my head but it felt real at the time. I’m hoping today will be better.

    Dawn of the 102nd day.

    Thanks for reminding me of the Dopamine Detox. I just joined it last night.

    You did well to get through the day. Onward to day 2!

    When we fall we may feel like we are back at the bottom but we are not. Our counter may read "0" but our past successes have built a foundation to stand upon. The old "0" is buried below this solid ground. Onward to day 1!

    3 days done brothers! :)

    Some lethargy and brain fog after lunch because i overate... wrong move. maybe some withdrawal is present sure, but mostly is digestion.

    so now i have to be patient and expect the heaviness and grumpiness to leave. meanwhile i´m trying to be compassionate around people, but quite frankly i just want to lay on my bed and be alone. but such is life, did some important stuff in the morning though. all is ok :)

    3 days have pasted, i´m still in the binging danger period, but so far i´m holding on. some temptations and urges here and there, but all my physical and social blockers are working nicely, so i can´t act out. i will continue like this until i feel solid again, no matter how much time it takes.

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

    Day 24!
    Middle urges yestarday, I had some brain fog, this is maybe I have the Flu or covid. Manage the urges focusing in my work and some youtube videos about nofap. I leave you a masterpiece here:


    Today I worked out and took a cold shower. Focusing in my life goals too, this help to mantain me motivated. Keep strong my brothers!

    Day 4, and I am feeling the urges every single day. The first few weeks almost feel like they don't matter, which is partly what makes them so hard to get through for me.

    They matter, without them you won't have the weeks after them.
     
  15. Checking, spent most of the day learning and preparing for the interview.

    Also went for a walk with my wife in the evening

    I'm really tired. I'm going to sleep

    Day 38
    I've never resisted this far, considering the tough days that I'm going through. Back pain is getting worse and won't leave me for nothing. This makes me bitter, which leads me to resentful relapses.

    I don't want to let it happen. Is there someone who also struggle with relapsing because of anger/self pity, that could give me some advice?

    Hobbit!

    Feels good to finally start the journey. Im looking forward to experiencing the LOTR story as myself, with a goal i much care for.

    Day was well, but i realised something at work. In my efforts to stop looking at women with sexual intend, i was not just lokking away with my eyes, but i was walking away so they just weren’t in my vision.

    I realised that is not sustainable, and not the right way to do it. The goal is to live and look without any restrains on yourself and to just have rewired the mind to not be a hyper sexual mess anymore. So i should just look away with eyes or just think of something else, istead of focusing so much on it and in that way making it worse.

    I hope it made sense, as i think the same principal apllies to a lot of things.
