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

    My body didn't want to sleep long enough so it decided to wake up early. Only had 4 hours a sleep again. It did it again. I felt as if I needed to nap but I was able to get through it.

    No urges in the beginning then it was building up. I thought I had none today but it was building. Because I like certain type of women that I was looking at online that I like. So it built up. I was wrong assuming I was not going to get any urges. Today I had the urges build up.

    In the end, it diminished because I got angry about something I saw online. Mad enough not to relapse that's for sure. Anger is working to my advantage. I need to cool things in my head when I get the chance.

    The Witch King & Nazguls need new steads now.
    Keep on Fellowship!

    I think it would help us all if you would not go into so much detail about all the cute girls you see at the gym. Can be very triggering to others.

    Of course, I will try to minimize it as best as possible. I hope it doesn't trigger you as well.

    Thanks for understanding. I’m fine but while I was reading your post it did start to feel like I was fishing a bit. I was thinking “what else is he going to say” and also imagining the scenes you were describing. It’s fine to say something like “I saw a cute girl” but to say “she took off her top and had big boobs” is a little much. I know you didn’t do it intentionally but just wanted to at least point out the danger I saw. I have found there is a lot of temptation on this nofap forum if you look around (don’t look around) and that’s why I try to just stick to LOTR and the Christian page.

    Day 27 no PMO. I feel like I’m starting to get my good mood back. If I looked back at my relapse what I see is this: I went on several extended vacations and came back to reality at work and things were a mess. I was totally stressed and depressed over work and the responsibility of my “real life”. Then I turned to PMO for relief (which never works) and that only made me feel worse. Now that I’m almost 30 days on the other side I’m starting to gain control of my problems and my attitude is improving. Oh, and I am back on a walking routine daily so that also helps.

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    32 Days Free of PMO.

    Today I'll just be checking in, I'm spending the day off screens. Let us continue to pave our new paths.

    Stay Strong!

    @RiseToGreatness I hope the bad feelings of withdrawal leave you soon, I'm happy to hear you have vacation soon so that you can take it easy brother.

    @hardcore_detox I'm sorry to hear for your relapse, but you seem to have found a plan of action for the next time. Stand again!

    @Paul S. I'm glad that you didn't end up relapsing! Enjoy the lake today, it will be a nice change of pace.

    hi bro, sorry for your relapse. yeah, you have done your hardmode period. 30 days is the minimum for married brothers, so you´re good.

    about the items, do as you prefer. in logic terms, the items appears along the quest: you reach a certain place, an item is given. that´s the storyline. but if it motivates you to keep the items, sure, go ahead.

    In fact, in lot´s of RPG´s, the hero can keep the items after he dies/resurrects :)

    One note though: and this goes for all challengers, if you binge you lose all the items, and must do everything again, hardmode included.

    sorry about your relapse. bro, you need to be aware of yourself, know yourself.

    when you push yourself too much, the body will start to show that through deviant behaviours. so when you feel overwelmed, stop and relax. in fact try to balance your life between work, family and leisure. having balance is key to keep sobriety.

    yes, sometimes you can push yourself when you feel motivated and energized. but when you feel overwelmed, that´s when you use the brakes, and go back to full reboot safety procedure.

    you need to be flexible, that´s why is so important to be self-aware.

    Checking in Fellowship!

    Officially on vacations :cool::cool::cool:. Had my morning run in the woods today and it was great :). Feeling slightly better than yesterday, but still a lot of withdrawal symptoms are here.

    I will be away on the next weeks, on vacations with the family, so i will not be as active here. I will still check-in daily and read your posts, but will not reply as much, due to typing in the mobile phone, which i hate :D

    Have a great day my friends, and an excellent weekend ;)

    30 DAYS!! WOO HOO!! This is the best. Thank you God. I am so stoked! I pray God keeps me sober from now on. This rules.

    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 :emoji_sparkling_heart:


    Just want to share this on this exciting day. A choral version of May It Be by Enya. Appropriate for The Lord of the Rings Challenge. May it give those who are struggling hope and consolation.

    Yes, I know. I have to refrain from going a bit over detail on those things.

    Yes, I have seen some stuff on here looking around here besides this thread. Good thing, I am not highly triggered for the most part. It would be a different if I was already while reading the details by other people's struggle. I am trying to learn from other's experience as well. Keeping that in mind.
