    Exactly I'm with your decision....Girls are naturally more beautiful .... But porn industry uses them to earn money and their beauty is ruined by industry

    Day 39 hard mode check in. Came close to a relapse yesterday. Look at just a few images that are soft that I had accidentally found. Found myself looking for more but I stopped myself. I found myself feeling yucky when I first woke up, just from those few images. Not proud of myself, but I will be easy on myself. A silver lining in this is that just those few soft images were enough to get me aroused. Showed me I am healing. Images that soft would have not even phased me for the last 15 20 years. I was thinking about limiting my screen time yesterday. This is a good sign that I must. I was thinking more to end my addiction to screens. I had a realization yesterday. I have been trying to build good habits like singing, writing music, reading and exercising for a long time. It occurred to me yesterday that I am competing with social media and screens that are highly addictive. Yesterday I left my phone and iPad in a different room with an alarm set for when I could grab them. I got lots of reading in. Did some push-ups and some squats. I am limiting my screen time to 2 hours a day on days off and a half hour for work days. Hopefully this works. I want a life of abundance. PMO and screens is keeping that from me. I am putting my phone and iPad on grayscale to make screen time less stimulating.

    Day 22 - You enter the cold Misty Mountains, the Hithaeglir.

    Urges were light. Stopped at a 4 way section with my car. I saw an attractive woman crossing and I wanted to stare but I was waiting on the green light.
    Temptation overall was kind of pathetic to be honest. I will take it as a win.

    @ARCEUS No more talking about Porn stars for me. Now I have want start thinking of my favorite female pornstars with the sex scenes in my mind lol.

    Essentially it is a reality. We still can't help it though.

    Lastly, I regret it now. I regret all my PMO. I regret why haven't started this journey early on or have known the effects were real when I joined here. Just my thoughts.

    PMO Orcs weren't that strong. I slaughtered them.
    Keep on Fellowship!

    Day 6. I am using this forum as a place to get my thoughts and emotions out. Definitely rebounding from my flatline and feeling my libido return today. I am looking forward to using this energy in a positive way. I feel motivated to accomplish my tasks and feel my focus and interest level increasing. I really need to find a sexual partner and begin building a healthy sex life. Does anyone have any advice on doing so?

    I can't use dating apps. It is a trigger for me. Every time I use them I relapse. Scrolling through pictures of girls to try and date is too similar to porn.

    Sorry for that, I forgot to mention a warning in that message.

    On August the 16th I fell down, so now, 5 days later, I'm in Bree again.
    I will beat my last streak, that's for sure. In the end of the week I'll have 10 days full and I'll reward myself with going out at night, maybe just by myself and have dinner at some nice restaurant or so.

    Other than that, I want to emphasize that I need to abstain from all kind of fantasies, psubs and obviously edging / masturbating.
    I think I can get better only by avoiding porn. But I will not really leave it behind me, as long as I don't do the full reboot and learn to deal with urges, triggers and in the end porn itself.

    Day 233

    Very little to speak of if I’m honest! Urges weren’t a problem and work kept me busy, still just navigating people talking about my relationship status but it’s not getting to me!

    Checking in Fellowship!

    A bit of withdrawal day today, brain fog, fatigue and bad mood. this is mostly due to bad sleep, staying up late due to family fun, and waking up early. Consequently i try to compensate the sleepiness with caffeine which causes me jitters and a crash later on. Should have known better...
    I reinforce that drinking water and doing the wim hof method is my primary way to deal with sleepiness. Caffeine is the last resort, as for me, it usually presents more problems than solutions...

    Nothing more to add Fellowship. Have a great day!

    Following the topic of pornstars and sex exploitation, here's a quote from a former female activist:

    "The industry picks women who are already damaged, to damage them even more".

    day 23 - No O
    day 4 - No P/M
    day 1 - No Psub

    Getting ready to go to work now, I'm determined to turn off my phone before I go home so that I can quickly go to bed after I get home

    Day 234

    No urges today, but more conversations about relationships. So far it’s not getting to me but it’s beginning to seem like people are making assumptions about my that aren’t correct; my friends know the reality of things so I don’t have a great deal to worry about, but I don’t want this to become a trigger.

    46 days – Lady Galadriel, Princess of the Ñoldor, gives you a bow such as the Galadhrim used. Among the best bows of Middle Earth, the bow was longer and stouter than the bows of Mirkwood and it was strung with a string of elf-hair.
