    Medium urges yestarday. Yestarday I had more sexual thougth than normal and that is becouse a cute girl wrote mi on facebook. I don't know this girl but she already asked for my number. I don't know, maybe this situation is like a trigger becaoue I know that I don't want a relationship with her, just for sex. I'll be careful with this situation.

    Today I worked out and took a cold shower.

    Keep strong my brothers.

    Brother let me give you a humble advise. First of all congrats on winning that fight. But you need to be even more determined than that. If you fight with your "addicted self" (actually with the devil) it's gonna be a much harder path. Not impossible, but harder.

    I advise you to have a time alone, a talk with yourself, even better if you can talk with God. And even better if you talk with the devil, telling him you renounce to be his slave. You are free of his chains, God is far more powerful than he is. The enemy already lost the war. Even if he struggles with this battles.

    Be determined brother. Truly determined. If you fight with yourself you run the risk of being weaker the next battle and lose or be even weaker for the next one.

    Again, time alone to face yourself and the enemy. This will help you.

    sure bro, it´s a breathing technique that gives vitality and energy. i use it several times per day to clear brain fog, but i also use it in regular days, once a day, in the morning, before breakfast.

    Here it is:



    the wim hof method also includes cold showers and mental commitment. so give it a try if you want to experience the full benefits :)

    Checking in Fellowship friends!! :)

    How are you today? :)

    Feeling overall good today, anxiety here, brain fog here, fatigue here, but all in mild intensity, manageable. though i´m doing the wim hof breathing several times per day now, and that surely helps to lift the mood :)

    Some temptations, and my eyes are wandering more to woman, but i try to reground myself on the spot.

    Nothing more to add my friends. Have a great day and weekend ahead!! :)

    Here´s the new trailer for the Rings of Power. Looking gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood :) ;)



    ah, and here´s why @SSS Vision knows his stuff :emoji_ok_hand:

    "the progress still matters even if I slip up and put the ring on my finger. The less often that happens, the further I am from the gaze of the Nazgul and Sauron's Eye. But all is not lost from one mistake; I have friends to help me back on the path and I am stronger than I think."

    Did some painting in the house with my fiancee today. She never painted before and I'm not well versed in teaching. One thing I know is I never liked being yelled at when learning things so I'm making sure to be gentle. Seems like it was a good experience for both us. On thing I noticed was how I noticed, for the most part, did not turn it into an erotic experience. There is a time for that and that was not the time.

    Day 2 check in. Days PMO-free in 2022: 188 out of 196.

    Thanks for the affirmation, @RiseToGreatness! This challenge really does help foster an encouraging community. @Ready to Stop knows his stuff a lot better that I do, and it was his description of the steady habit to check in here every day, like fellow ringbearer's posts, and remind himself that PMO always and only makes things worse that has made the biggest difference for me lately. Others have made a difference in the past, yourself included, and I'm sure many others will make a difference in the future. Thank you all.

  14. Checking in

    Just greaaaaaaat day today, spent time working and in the evening I went to play basketball

    I haven't played for a looong time, but today I played about 4 hours and before the play I've done my solid workout.
    And I'm not event tired!

    I was dominating for the whole game, no one could stop me.
    I was feeling that I was twice stronger and faster than any other player.

    Guys, nofap gives you power, during the play I was alpha male, strong as fuck.
    I'm feeling in control, I think people were scared by me a little bit :)

    And right now, I don't give a shit what other people think about me.
    If I would PMO I would feel like shit, with the depression, but I'm not PMOing, I'm done with this stupid fucking addiction.

    Porn, listen to me, fuck you!

    Yes, guys, maybe you think that I'm mad, Yes, I'm mad! (in a good way I think)

    I feel right now like Trevor from the GTA5

    Day 0

    I relapsed to PMO this evening. My friend messaged me on Whatsapp and sent me a picture that had something in it that triggered me and I quickly spiralled into a relapse.

    I told my mum right before it got really bad and gave her my phone, but I think at that point it was inevitable. I need to find a better way to respond when I'm triggered. Next time I notice I'm triggered I will go on this website (NoFap) and click the panic button and follow the advice.

    I feel bad about relapsing. I think that it's time for me to take a risk and talk to a girl, even if it doesn't lead anywhere, because as long as I'm living here with my mum and single like this, there's a lack of responsibility and accountability in my life. A lack of real consequences. And that's not a good thing. I will take a bit of time this evening to update my profile on that dating website and I will be a bit more open-minded about talking to girls, not expecting there to be that magic spark right from the beginning.

    day 7

    Work exhaustion always make me seek out PMO, as my default mechanism of coping with stress, self-reinforced thru vicious cycles over the years, is seeking pleasure thru sexual release. But PMO

    1) actually increases stress: overwhelming regret after seconds-only orgasm pleasure, sometimes it doesn't even occur. It's just not worth it.
    2) a huge time & energy sucker
    3) not solve the underlying issue

    Whenever I get tempted or the urge hit me, I have to remind myself of the above, so that I could possibly get thru the moment.

    Yes same for me, it's a terrible way of dealing with stress. I'm starting a teaching job in September and that will be a demanding job, so I need to find a better way of dealing with stress too.

    What healthy ways have you found of managing stress and/or anxiety?

    All the best, brother.
