  1. Day 4 complete! A brave friend, Tom Bombadil, takes notice of my quest. He teaches me a rhyme to summon him if I fall into danger within his borders. Quest Aid – Song of Bombadil :emoji_notes:

    Wednesdays are my day off and I'm happy to report I took full advantage of it in positive ways. I baked some banana bread to share with the office staff, completed a 5-mile run with lots of hills while having no calf trouble, and wrote two pages of a story. My creative energy and the artistic side of my brain always take a big hit whenever I reset, but I notice that a few days into the streak, like now, I get a big rush of that energy coming back. I'm very happy to have it.

    St. Faustina Kowalska, pray for us!

    13 days – The PMO forces were at your tail but you crossed the Ford of Bruinen, leaving them behind. The House of Elrond is in sight!

    42 (10 hard mode) days complete

    I was in another town the whole day not a lot of urges. The precondition for my last phishing was that I was tired, sad because my wife was mad at me and I was in the toilet with my phone. Now I am only in the toilet with my phone, I thought that I am saving time, but I am not sure about that. I will let you know how I did.

    Yesterday my wife caught me.

    There aren’t many things as embarrassing as that, and it happened after I proudly talked to her about hard mood… but it sort of worked out for the best. I was not in the best of places and at least now I’m more honest with her. But ya, I don’t really know what to say except that my reboot is still not where I want it to be and I need to remember how important it is. There are no great proclamations to make right now. Only to start over and do it better.
     
  7. Checking in

    Yesterday was a good day,
    In the morning at 6 a.m. I went to the beach, the water was cold, it was really refreshing

    I spent most of the day working and in the evening I went to play basketball, I haven't played for a long time
    It was really great.

    Had some urges, because I was very tired after the game

    Day 4 no PMO. Started to feel a little better yesterday. I realized that I haven’t really been working out and that does usually impact my mental stability. Not sure why I always forget that correlation. Happens quite often. Headed out for a walk now.

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    9 Days Free of PMO.

    Today is going better so far, no such strong urges and slept well overall. I still have lingering effects from the BPPV vertigo, but again gradually getting better.

    Another very hot and humid day today ahead, I'm grateful for the AC. Will keep to my routine again.

    Here is one of the quotes that I got this morning, from a long list of saved ones.

    "We meet ourselves time and again in thousand disguises on the path of life." -Carl Jung.

    Stay strong!

    @Retentionistheway @Slider8

    I believe you both mean sexual energy and not Testosterone. You do not want your T levels to go down, unless of course they astronomically high (which I would doubt, get a blood test done and look for Free and Total Testosterone) As Slider mentioned, by exercising more you will expend your energy in a healthy way and it will be beneficial for your T levels.

    Are any of you guys loner? the only time I'm capable of socializing is when I'm relapsed. I smile, laugh a bit, fool around here and there, other wise, the more I climb the abstention ladder, more I become dead serious, hyper focused, detached from all feelings, and predatory too. I don't know man, I'll keep my progress posted. I'm waiting on day 14. My last relapses were 22 and 14, both forced to reset.
    I will try incorporating that advice of jogging

    That's could be something good brother, I remember a lot of times after relapsed to thing "I hope someone discovers me" I know that it's something that will help me to not relapse, so maybe it's somethig good :)

    Today I worked out and took a cold shower.

    Brother I realized the devil attacks more severally when we are about to reach a goal or when we may receive a special blessing. He does not want us to feel like we are winning, and he obviously wants to take blessings from us. This right here means you're in a good path! Just be mindful, that the enemy hates you and wants you to fall. But God is with you so you have absolutely nothing to fear.

    Checking in my friends :)

    Crossing the Ford of Bruinen, and i really feel i was stabbed by a Morgul blade :(. Feeling so down today, terrible brain fog, terrible fatigue, anxiety, i´m in a very bad place now. on the other side, i´m feeling insane urges, specially this afternoon. Did the flare method to recenter myself.

    Still need 3 more hours of work, then head home. but 3 hours now feels like 3 days :(

    i just want to say thank you friends. thank you for being here with me.

    Day 12 - 13

    Succumbed to work exhaustion and watched P. Fortunately I didn't MO. Due to the nature of my work, the stress / exhaustion is almost always constant. Not only do I have to remind me of the following, but also I need to figure out an effective way to cope with that, instead of resorting to PMO. I will first try Netflix watching, as I usually am so exhausted that I just fall asleep while watching it.
