    Day 25 no PMO. Went to ride go carts yesterday and ended up getting huge motion sickness. The carts were fun but the sickness kept me in bed all night. I guess I’m just an old man now. LOL

    On the edge. My wife is planning a big trip with her friends for a couple of weeks next month and from the moment I realised it was happening my brain just could not let it go. All I can think about is having two weeks of uninterrupted PMO sessions. And I've even started to consider smoking weed for the first time in forever (alongside the PMO. I used to do it all the time). And it is fucking me up. I feel like I can’t talk to her about it, and I don’t know what to do. Just this idea has started to affect my current state. Today I woke up extra tired and had the usual hard time in the morning to not look at porn. My brain is thinking about all of my porn blockers as video game riddles and I think I found another way to pass them. I feel like I could find a cure for cancer with this level of motivation and I hate it. I still have a couple of weeks before she’ll leave. And I’m already on the best streak of 2022 and I don’t want to ruin everything by having a binge party.

    Does anyone know what might be the reason I cant see my own counter, whereas I was able to see it a few months back?

    Day 222

    Everything was going well today until it was time to go to bed; soon after lying down I began to hear my neighbours going at it, which proved to be a huge distraction. Thankfully I remembered I had my swimming earplugs in my bag so they managed to block out all the sound, but my mind was still racing as it was the first time hearing those sounds since I quit PMO.

    I’ve woken up feeling a lot better, but the night made me realise that my addiction is not quite yet broken - triggers like that weren’t something I’d accounted for and I’ve never felt in more danger of relapsing.

    Dawn of the 31st day.

    I'm probably due to update my ranking. Seeing as I'm getting married tomorrow I won't bother touching that until next week.

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    30 Days Free of PMO. 1 month achieved.

    Yesterday was pleasantly surprising, I was not feeling the best in the morning but as I got started and focused on my tasks, things got much better. It was a successful day of paving my new path.

    I'm starting off the day better today, same concept. Meditation, exposure , work and some reading.

    I want to share something I read from Marcus Aurelius Meditations yesterday:

    "Wipe out thy imaginations by often saying to thyself: now it is in my power to let no badness be in this soul, nor desire nor any perturbation at all; but looking at all things I see what is their nature, and I use each according to its value. Remember this power which thou hast from nature."

    What I got from this:

    We have power over our own thoughts, power to allow no bad thoughts or thoughts that are unworthy to ourselves to linger. Not to let it touch our soul, what I gather from that is not entertaining that thought. Seeing things for what they truly are, deciphering and using what is of value to the soul. To enrich ourselves

    Stay Strong!

    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".


    @Paul S. Thank you brother and congrats to you as well on reaching one month!

    @hardcore_detox Congrats on hitting 2 months!

    yeah, if you binge that´s gonna hurt a lot.

    so, first thing, can´t you go with her? that will solve a bunch of things. second, it seems at this point you´re not ready to be home alone, specially all that time. so can you go somewhere meanwhile? stay with your parents, friends, etc?

    Checking in brave Warriors!

    How you guys are feeling today? Long time since we don´t have a girl here, that would be nice, to vary things a bit :)

    So, this morning i continue my new workout routine, and it went great. i workout, i sweat, then i take a hot/cold shower and felt like 3 million bucks :D

    that sure helped the rest of the day because my energy and mood rise, and my anxiety lowered. i´m still feeling anxiety and leg pain though, but it´s less than before.

    i really think i have here a good workout routine to engage as part of my lifestyle. but let´s see how it goes, so far so good :)

    Nothing more to add brave Guild! Have a great day. Checking out ;)

    Here´s @SSS Vision with enlightened words.

    "I believe that simply being accountable the way we are to each other here, without shame or guilt or judgment, is a positive and good method of destigmatizing our sexuality and gaining greater awareness of where we are with it."

    For the last 6 weeks my girlfriend didn't have to work late on thursdays. Those lucky days are over now and now I'm again every thursday afternoon alone at home. This is my longest hardcore streak ever and when I just came home the urges nearly got me. But I managed to get out and am now on the way to the gym. Keep pushing forward fellowship :)

    Edit: Back home, urges back at 100%. Maybe 1-2h left.

    Edit: Over the hill. Gf should arrive any minute. Tomorrow I'll be a dwarf :)

    Day 29 check in. Days PMO-free in 2022: 215 out of 223.

    From what I have read, this is a system-wide bug. To get your counter back, you have to go to "Update Day Counter" and put the date you started your current streak (it should show up there, just re-enter the same date and time and save it again). This worked for me and most others, though it does move the counter to the bottom of your signature and if you try to fix that manually, it will disappear again.
