    Still at it. Having slight urges from time to time but managed them.

    Day 3.
    The good thing about tracking my progress on a calendar is that I see some patterns suddenly.

    I've relapsed almost every Tuesday this month (and also every Friday). So I'm not sure why, but I know that I'm in an extra dangerous place today.

    Today I'm having a call with someone who runs a local anti porn support group. And I admit that I'm kind of scared, both from losing my anonymity and from all of the stories I've heard about how these support groups can be parts of some cult or weird stuff like that. But I'll take a chance, it's batter than just giving up and relapsing.

    Day 9 no PMO. Woke up and walked to see the sunrise. Feels like it’s going to be a good day.

    relapse...
    missed early check In = went to bed to late yesterday = relapse
    should have known this. Its almost always the same.
    that girl Im gaming with is teasing me like hell - and if we game we always forget time and after that I almost always relapse.
    Its dumb... this "girl" is married and has two kids. So I shouldnt think about anythink or let me tease.
    For the next time I need a plan and a strict end time (like 0:00) shouldnt go to bed after midnight.
    Its one of my strongest relapse reasons....
    this could have been avoided man

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    14 Days Free of PMO.

    Stronger urges this morning, alongside porn flashbacks. My mind is starting to pull me slightly. I still will not give in to it, I'm interrupting the thought as it pops up and redirecting it. I also successfully kept to my plans of yesterday, regardless of how I felt.

    Today, I feel better although I have a lingering headache, which presumably is from the whole Vertigo recovery process. Once more, I will keep to my schedule today. I intend to mediate, workout, daily exposure to my fears and some deep work.

    Stay Strong!

    @Ready to Stop Very nice shot! I've been making it a habit to stay outside daily right after breakfast for 10 minutes, just to start the day off with some natural light. It's proven to be very helpful.

    Low urges yesterday and some brain fog(the most annoying PMO effect for me). Mi laptop crasshes yestarday, so I have to find out a way to repair it.

    Today I didn't worked out but I took a cold shower at least.
    Keep strong brothers.

    Happy Tuesday, Fellowship! Still doing ok. Still trying to reduce screen time. Doing ok with not watching tv much, and only about a 1/2 hr playing games on my phone. Reading books instead is working. Went for a walk yesterday. Doing the Conqueror Virtual challenge, there is a LOTR series which is fun and keeps me walking regularly. link: https://www.theconqueror.events/checkouts/lotr-direct-checkout-bundle/

    Day 355
    Yesterday was awesome! I could manage my "excitement" or "stimulation" from being alone in my house with this two cute girls...

    I think it doesn't make sense to me to be with a girl really... I feel I don't need it. And I love my freedom, I love to be free to love everyone just the same. Love to be able to go anywhere or try anything (that's good). Love to be free of attachments.

    Reading some stuff about female narcissistic personality syndrome. It is amazing the power an evil person can have over you. One more reason not to be a slave of sex otherwise you'll be controlled by powerful evil forces.

    Stay strong.

    Checking in Fellowship!

    Bad withdrawal day today. i wake up very tired and sad. this feeling lingering through the day, even after taking a cold shower. i skipped the wim hof breathing due to lack of time.

    i eventually started fishing on sexy dancing videos, twice. it was just a couple of seconds but enough for me to spot a red flag.

    i did the flare method and feeling better now, less triggered. my plan for the rest of the day is just to be around people. don´t force myself to do anything, just take it light and happy. better that than a relapse.

    so right now there´s no one in my office, as usual in the afternoon. this set increases the risk of a relapse, so i´m gonna visit other departments, see what the guys are up to.
    this department is gonna be empty for a while, but i rather risk having some trouble with that, instead of relapsing. i really don´t want to be alone right now.

    It was really good to take this off my chest with you, my brothers :). it´s not easy, it´s somewhat embarrasing, but it helps. honesty really helps against an addiction, specially in triggering moments. thanks for being here with me, my brothers. for the good and the bad.

    Checking out.
