    Day 19 - Bree sends aid! Bill, a strong and kind pony, joins your quest by carrying rations and items.
    Quest Aid – Bill, the pony :emoji_horse:

    Today alright but I felt better yesterday. I'm not too bad.

    I might hit the gym after I write this or read up some more information here in the forums or do something else.

    Yesterday, there was a new good looking lady including the body. Not sure about the face but it was ok. I didn't get a good look because I was looking away since it can be triggering. Same attractive woman with her friend & boyfriend from Day 7. I guess there they will be there every so often. Maybe even more. Damn she is attractive to look at it.

    Apparently, I heard there was another woman but she is married that started showing up. I never saw her for awhile but I heard from the front desk guy telling she is showing up as well. Hmm for some reason I am not attracted to her when I look at her. I don't know why. Her body is pretty nice and somewhat slim but I am not attracted to her.

    I have been wondering something about women, do women became less attractive when they MO or have sex? If anyone can answer this. Because I heard one man's point of view, you become less attractive when you release your semen through masturbation & watch porn or during sex. Basically, if a man practice PMO then they become less attractive.

    Maybe that is why I might not be attracted to her because her and everyone is releasing their energy (orgasm).

    I think I am slowly becoming attractive because of this no PMO journey. I think people especially woman might sense it a little more. But I still need to go on longer to see the effects though.

    Seeing SR/NoFap videos on Youtube for inspiration and it is helping me.

    Urges, not many with the exception in the end. Upon waking up, I had a dream about woman that I know of. I think it would have became a sexual dream if it went further because I saw myself touching her. Hmm maybe would have been a wet dream. Ironically, no pornographic images in my mind.

    Before heading to bed, I came across woman online then suddenly I started to get hard. I became hard for her and I think I would have relapsed if I let it. It might have been enough to do the deed. I think it was due to water in my system. If you notice, if you have enough water in your system you can get horny from that condition. But I went to the bathroom and my hard on subsided but I still want to have sex. I believe it came back though and I went to bed with a hard on.

    Nope, I resisted. This is still worth the effort.

    I can talk more about this in another time but this is relative in other aspects in life. Not easy and you earn this.

    All I have to say is fight! Just my advice when urges come. I will repeat over and over again. I am embracing it when it does happen for me.

    Bill comes along the ride with the fellowship. Nice Pony. Keep on Fellowship!

    Thank you brother, there is nothing you can do. There will always be attractive women in the gym. For me, just at least one attractive woman is present every single time I check in to workout in the none busy hours when barely people are around! That is what I have to deal with now. Only danger is if they start hitting on me if I retain longer. Then this will be difficult. I think I can overcame the temptations when it does happen.

    Day 37

    Making it through yesterday without acting out was nothing short of a miracle. I can not believe I made it through. I don’t know how many times I had hugely powerful images pop into my head. I wanted to pmo so badly 100s of times yesterday. But I did not. I think yesterday was the perfect storm. I was exhausted, I had talked to my abusive father the night before. He did not do anything abusive. But I have noticed being around him or talking to him leads to lots of temptations after. I don’t think I feel safe around him. I did some meditation on my past with him. I think some stuff healed. I don’t really have any positive memories of him as a child. Distance, felt like he did not care and that I was a burden to him. Thank you @Gallade_Templar for reminding me that God delights in me and telling me that story about how much, That really helped. I have also been avoiding doing my orientations for my new job starting mid next week. That is causing stress. I can’t be hard on myself. I worked 14 days straight 12 hour days with 45 minute bus ride each way in the middle of nowhere. A highly stressful job. Making it through yesterday was the hardest thing I ever did. I have done some very difficult things but that one took the cake. Praise God I made it through. I should give myself some credit too. I have worked very hard to get myself to this point, with the help of Gods grace to be able to get through such a trial.

    I recently saw a meme about guardian angels cheering when we fight off temptations. I wish I could find it. Haha It was quite funny and I don’t remember it enough to explain it. At the end of the day I pictured all of heaven rooting and cheering for me to get through the temptations on my drive home from a friends place. I am sure God, my guardian angel, my favourite saints, all the angels and saints were cheering so loud when I made it through yesterday. Yesterday was one hell of a battle.

    I am doing better this morning it seams. Feeling worn down. Going to go get a nice coffee to treat myself for getting through yesterday. Then I am going to get my stuff done for my new job. Then I am going to read. I think I will start Reading Lord of the Rings!

    Checking in Fellowship!

    I have been slacking my good habits in this vacations: playing too much videogames, watching TV without restrains, uncontrolably using sugar, etc... and this is causing my dopamine to plummet. consequently i'm becoming tired, grumpier and moodier.

    So i reflect upon that. vacations doesn't mean indulgence. Just because i'm not in my place and working time, it doesn't mean i can do whatever i want.

    wherever we go, our brain and emotions goes with us, so we can't change our persona or give a break to the good habits. They exist precisely to keep us happy (or dim withdrawal symptoms). If we slack them, bad things follow.

    Proper mental attitude is beyond time and place.

    A new day, a new lesson learned. And its quite obvious frankly. But in this modern world, is so easy to get lost in bad behaviours...

    These are my 2 cents Fellowship.

    Thanks for putting up with me :). Big hug

    K. Seriously! This is so cool! I am so glad I did not cave yesterday. I have never felt better. From day 16 to about 20 everything was so magical. It went away. The magic is back but way more. Ordering food I could not unlock my eyes from the cute cashiers. There was no awkwardness. It was magical. I can’t describe the feeling. The feeling of the sun on my skin is almost overwhelming. Every little sensory experience I have is amplified so much. Is this what my life will always be like if I continue to say no? Even if I get days like this here and there I will be happy.

    Day 231/232

    Apologies for missing yesterday’s check-in, I was late getting back to my family home! Had the strangest night this year by far; I had a dream in which I relapsed, but when I woke it appeared that I actually had relapsed. I often have dreams that blur into reality and I’m incredibly confused about it because I can only assume the relapse occurred during this time, but I don’t remember what brought it on or even being motivated by urges to relapse.

    I’m not upset by it as I wouldn’t describe it as a conscious relapse. I’m obviously a little disappointed as it means I won’t have gone the year without an emission, but as far as I understand it I haven’t failed the challenge.

    Day 9
    Urges getting slightly more potent but I've also been experiencing a new period of inspiration. Finding a lot of things to meaningfully occupy myself with and enjoy life/decrease stress.

    Day 20

    Woke up with 7 hours of sleep. Not bad.

    Skipped the gym and hitting the gym later. Will try to read on here or something today.

    Urges, not really many. But it happened again like yesterday. I came across a woman's social media page. As I was looking, all of her content was completely normal. But her last post was her wearing oversized t-shirt and her bottoms was exposed (not nude). Everything is normal but she had to throw in a sexy photo of herself. Very strange. Because of that I ended up getting a hard on from that. I wanted to sex now.

    Nope, I still resisted. Success.

    Every day, I have to practice patience because I am impatient. Maybe being in SR/NoFap/No PMO made me a little more impatient. I have a long way to go.

    I wanted to say more but now I forgot what to say. Maybe later I will write it here.

    I wonder if they will make a new movie the story the first. The story of the Valar and Aratar. The beginning of the First Age of the ring. The First Dark Lord before Sauron came into the picture. That would be interesting to watch in film.

    Moving along with the Fellowship. Watching along the way if there are PMO Orcs to attack.
    Keep on Fellowship!

    Try to avoid social networks, at least for me it's the first place that my relapses starts. The urges will be less strong if you are out of them :)

    It can be triggering at times. Not all social media is bad but it depends on how you use it. There is only a couple of platforms I don't like which I completely avoid not because of urges. For other reasons if I may say.

    I think I can manage as I said. I embrace the urges because that is where the real battle begins. It really test if I want this lifestyle or not.
    I have been successful so far and getting stronger day by day. I am resisting :)
