    day 9

    I survived yesterday.

    I encountered a few triggers this am, but I'm letting them go and will not act on them.

    24 days no PMO. Going well. Up at work camp. The only access I have to p is on my iPad and iPhone that I have covenant eyes on. Here for another 12 days. Life is good. Was saying I hated it up here already yesterday. I am past that. This job should be good. Was just working with a guy in the morning who gets really stressed. Those people are so hard to work with. Was only with him until I wrote that. I am happy now. Steady work for 2 years for me. Nice.

    was watching a video last night that talked about benefits after 30 days. I am excited to get there. I am already seeing huge benefits. I am loving this lack of social anxiety. Man alive.

    yeah, this is the key bro. everytime that you want porn, ask yourself this, and your true desire will surface. then try to attend to it in proper ways :).

    Keep going! You´re doing great :emoji_muscle:

    yeah, it seems you have plenty of dopamine to spare. Great! :) but it´s wiser to invest in a new goal or hobby. a second job can push you a bit too much, as this will naturally brings new responsabilities and chores.

    Go for a new goal brother. Choose the one that flames you the most :emoji_fire::emoji_fire::emoji_fire:. We´re with you!!!

    Checking in Fellowship!!

    30 days hardmode! Going good! yes, the withdrawal is merciless, even today, but it has been lesser than in previous withdrawals, mostly due to my consistent use of the wim hof method/cutting 90% of screens for leisure/keeping minimum intake of sugar and alcohol.

    not a perfect streak though: fished a couple of times, and had a couple of seconds of nudity watching, but overall it as been a solid streak.

    for all the married brothers out there: in terms of hardmode this streak has been really strong, only 1 time i make a move on my wife, but she back me off, thankfully (she knows my goal). my tecniques has been:

    - chat with her every 5 days about the "no sex" experience.
    - we only flirt in daytime. at night is very dangerous since my energy and focus reduces a lot.
    - we sleep 1 meter apart in bed.
    - i´m being romantic, changing routines and surprising her. i´m working on being a good husband, not a needy child.

    And these are my 2 cents, let´s go for 2 months Fellowship. Onwards!!!! :emoji_star2::emoji_star2::emoji_star2:


    30 days – Your loved ones send you a gift as a token of their love. Radagast, the Brown, in his rabbit sleigh delivers you Evenstar – a silver necklace with a white stone. "When the memory of the fear and the darkness troubles you...this will bring you aid".
    Quest Item – Evenstar

    Day 219

    Spent the majority of the day travelling so not much to update on. Urges haven’t been a problem but I need to be careful these next few weeks!

    Day 28 / 1000. Last try.

    Wanted to write longer journal entry about automation cycles in my life, but started thinking what's the point. I don't trust my words anymore. This is what I have achieved. By constantly breaking the promises, plans, schedule, etc. I achieved the point where it seems poitless to talk or plan something. This is one more reason why I try nofap for the last time. But for now (this streak) I'll force myself to reflect and speak. Maybe I am still missing something that can be solved this way...

    Words are like water.
    They flow out, disappear,
    Hurt like an ice.
    I won't believe, until I see my actions.



    {:emoji_zap:, :emoji_notes:, :emoji_chains:, :emoji_running_shirt_with_sash:,:emoji_horse:}

    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.

    31 days hardmode. Longest time without an O since my teens. Heavy urges but you give me strength fellowship :emoji_heart:
     
  19. Day 3 complete. PMO forces have spotted me! With haste I use the Buckleberry Ferry to cross the Brandywine River.

    I know what the quest milestone says, but I don't feel that way yet. Urges are still quiet. I'm back home with my family now and they're usually pretty good about unintentionally providing distractions!

    @PeaceOnEarth108 Great stuff! We're very glad you're here, too.

    St. James the Greater, pray for us!

    Morning of day one. In Buckland, Sting received. Urges are strongest in the morning, but I have not yielded.
