    91 Days Free of PMO.

    A bit of restless sleep last night, I had quite the active mind and I believe I spent a little too much time watching TV ( I actually finished LOTR The two tower extended yesterday) because I took advantage of the holiday. It's okay, I will rectify this, today I take some rest through meditation. Still going to workout and I also have work afterwards.

    Stay Strong!

    @nerdy_owl and @Paul S. Remember brothers, try your best to analyze what lead you down the road of relapse. A prevention plan is important. @Paul S. Happy to see you on the forums.

    @PeaceOnEarth108 Thank you brother and right back at you! Congratulations on your proposal, momentous occasion.

    @Kairose Thank you brother! Keep setting the path for us.

    @LLOYYD Thank you brother! Yes, I mention in my 90 success story that a 90 day reboot is a lie. It takes more time than that and the intention to quit for good needs to be there.

    Your welcome! Yes, I think I would have to agree even if I haven't reached there yet. I believe it is a great start for everyone before going further more on a streak. I think I might have come across it somehow while looking in the success stories section. I don't remember. I need to read and check out soon when I get the chance.

    I just can't believe what happened :( Lesson learned: Don't ever dare to be woked up when in sleepy state and urges are at peak. It had happened previously too, I was sleepy but was pushing myself not to sleep, the urges were very much more dangerous in sleepy state, I already knew it but I ignored this, the problem repeated itself ;-; Do I only decrease my counter by half because it was like 30% my mistake and 70% my subconscious
    :(

    Always a hard area of the challenge for me. Urges are starting to get fairly high again. I know I can do it though.

    You will never grow until you learn to take %100 accountability. It is %100 on you whether you are successful or not. Keep fighting, the counter doesn't matter that much. You still have only once in 22 days which is pretty amazing.

    Day 12 no PMO. Fly home from vacation today so soon life will be back to normal. As I have mentioned previously I do tend to struggle with depression right after a vacation so I’ll try to keep my spirits up.

    Day 18 no PM checking in. I’m feeling pretty good. Starting to notice a bit more mental clarity and ability to hold my attention. Still get impulses but yesterday they weren’t as strong, or I was able to handle them better.

    Thanks for the appreciation, at the end of the day, it was me who refused to sleep for the sake of study and allowed myself to experience sleep Inertia, the initiation was solely done by me :( I will accept this guilt and stand up again from the heavy shock I experienced few hours before and learn more and more. If this life be easy than everyone would be successful, but no, if he wants to be successful, he definitely will face lots of unwanting emotions and experiences, but the prize he will get is priceless.

    Day 16 -Touched by your bravery, the gentle Elves of Rivendell give you an elven cloak. The cloak has a hood and is fastened by a green brooch. It acts as camouflage when PMO units are around.
    Quest Item -
    Elven Cloak :emoji_running_shirt_with_sash:

    Back to the grind. Moving onward in the journey to Mordor.

    Starting the series & watching The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on the go when I can. All extended edition since I own them.
    Should I buy UHD on digital? Should I buy the 3D version (digital) since I have a VR headset to watch into? Still thinking about it.

    Reminder to myself, not to worry because challenge will always come my way here on this journey. Don't say it like Theoden in the Battle of Hornburg :emoji_grin:

    Gym sooner or later. Read and such.

    These Elven cloaks will aid me to camouflage from PMO forces around.
    Keep on going Fellowship!

    I had a dream where I nearly relapsed, it's interesting how I view this as a nightmare. I'm glad for that to be honest. Apart from that, I slept well last night and ready to take on another day of meditation, exposure, workout, work and reading. I'm trying my best to improve in all parts of my life, in gradual small increments.

    @ARCEUS Do not beat yourself up too much brother, learn from your mistake. That is the best present you can give yourself. Also, be proud. You are 16 and are tackling an addiction with which many of us would wish we could of done that so early on in life.
