    Day 18 / 1000. Battles won against pmo: 67.

    Not sure what I feel. Very moodswingy. Today I was attacked by huge depression and irritability. I have noticed that peak of first wave of withdrawals is around day 20 usually. So it could be that this is not the end. I have to stay ready.

    The worst part of this hard mode thing for me is that my past is surfacing to me. I like when it's some good memory. But mostly it's painful stuff - things that I cannot change, people that I can't apologise to, people that hurt me, habits that I cannot inforce retroactively,... Sometimes I just wish I could wash everything away, but I can't. My past is what formed this me. So many lessons learned. It would be a shame to forget them. But I still would like to make a peace with my past. I don't know how.



    :emoji_zap:

    Stuff that should help to not pmo:
    1. No internet for recreational purposes until 6 pm.
    2. Waking up on the same time every day.

    Day 179

    A good day at work and packing down my flat, but my car broke down and I had to call out a mechanic. Thankfully all was resolved fairly promptly, but not cheaply!

    Feeling in control of my urges; a video came up on YouTube with some women acting suggestively and I remembered the effect this used to have on me, but this time I felt nothing. Not an excuse to be reckless, but nice to know things have improved.

  4. Day 1 complete! I've left the Nazgul phase behind me, an important first step.

    Lots of brain fog, headaches, exhaustion today. I can't say with certainty that they're related to my relapse but I'd be surprised if they're entirely unrelated. I also need to get on top of my eating habits again. The past couple weeks I've been consuming more sugary drinks and eating more desserts than I normally would. A general loss of willpower in all areas.

    St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us!

    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.
