    you have our prayers :emoji_pray:. shut down all electronic devices, hide them. even if you know where they are, give that sign to yourself, shut them down. meanwhile try to be busy, it will help the time pass by ;)

    you´re both right, partially. remember that autopilot has a great weight in causing automatic relapses, many brothers report "how the hell does this happened?" after a sudden relapse. an addiction has a pull to it because the midbrain is severely highjacked by it. in our case, the midbrain considers porn as important as breathing or eating, therefore the withdrawal symptoms, the cravings, etc...

    on an advanced level, usually after 3 months, the strenght of the addiction will be much weaker, there will be no autopilot, and the situations can be delt in a superior "face to face" procedure. but in the beginning, the pull of the addiction is very strong, so all tecniques that block triggering situations, help.

    of course, one can and should learn coping strategies to deal with cravings, hard feelings, develop maturity, good habits, etc right from the start. but in the beginning, don´t just lean on that. because the addiction can and will put you on a relapse, if the circunstances are gathered.

    Checking in Fellowship! :)

    uffffffffffffffffffffffff, much better day today :). I survived yesterday and the night. Slept little, but nevertheless a bit of quality sleep time, since i feel a lot better today, good mood and motivation. not skipping the wim hof breathing, and already done it twice today :)

    I will try to avoid screens at night, since i see that insomnia hits me harder when i watch TV at night. so instead i will read a book or just chat with the family :). i already had that conclusion before, but old habits die hard :p :D

    nothing more to add my friends! Have a great day :)

    Evening of the 16th day.

    Yesterday I entered Elf-land.

    I decided not to check in from my phone yesterday. Now I'm sitting at my trusty desktop computer.

    Yesterday morning I awoke to being on the cusp of ejaculating so I had a mess to clean up. Don't recall any sexual dreams. Was what it was.

    Touched by your bravery, the gentle Elves of Rivendell give you an elven cloak. The cloak has a hood and is fastened by a green brooch. It acts as camouflage when PMO units are around.

    Day 208

    A brilliant day, but one I am too tired to explain at this time. Urges have not been a problem, and life is going well.

    @Baki Hanma @Kratos_GOW congrats! True wisdom comes from God, also true strength.
    Fight for Love, if you don't have enough faith. God helps you even if you don't believe in him. Just as gravity pulls you down even if you wouldn't believe in it.

    Good day!
    A little exhausting, but it's good to study the things that I want to and like. The week has been insanely tiring, and tomorrow will be the most exhausting day, so I'm on a red flag. Urges have been growing. Today I thought of MOing before going to bed, but I decided not to do it.
    God bless you!
