    Day 35. III. Emergency report.

    I can't believe I almost started to masturbate. I would really like to edge now. Let's just go for another walk instead. That's a rule. From my experience I know that addiction attacks never walk alone. Too risky to stay at home.

    :emoji_palm_tree:

    Next reward - denim jacket on July 3rd.
    Hard mode + no shutting blockers down - day 35.
    No matter what happens in my life, this is important to me and this streak has to continue.
    No coffee at all. No tea, chocolate, etc. after 18:00.
    Calisthenics workout every Saturday. I can do one additional workout on any chosen day.

    Low urges yesterday and middle urges on this moment, difficult to focus. I know that is part of the journey.
    Worked out and took a cold shower.
    Keep strong my brothers.

    Day 84. One more day and I'll have the Nenya.
    @Paul S. You are on the right track brother. But a word of advise. The thing that helped me the most during my reboot was my hectic job. Staying busy actually helps, especially in the beginning. When I was on vacation a few weeks ago, the urges got strong like hell. (For some reason my phone is autocorrecting hell to he'll....?? Anyway) So I started gymming etc as well. Believe me it helps bro.

    I thought I'd deleted my account, and after months I decided to start a new one. It turns out that the account is still here.

    Hello again, everyone, and I wish you all the best of luck!

    It's day one for me.

    Day 36.

    Got up 05:20 because I had to finish some tasks before deadline. I did that, but I am very stressed, because I could leave some mistakes. But, you know, it's always a possibility. Now I feel tired and I'm taking a break, if I can call this a break. I don't remember the last time, when I was really relaxed. Maybe Saturday morning for a short bit??

    I see that today will be difficult talk with psychologist. I really need free weekends or at least one day off a week. Real days off - not just those, where I am just anxious that I am not doing anything. Some say to me, that if I let myself to rest, I would probably start wanting something in life again.

    Of course there is no days off from nofap. :) What can you do...

    Also, again this morning, I noticed that I want to prove something to someone. Why would I? I have done that a lot already in the past. Especially, that it doesn't matter much. It just hurts my ego, I guess, when I am not proving my "truths".

    I am looking at the clocks now and I see that I don't have as much time to rest as I thought. :( Let's just continue the day.

    Long time no see, members of the fellowship. Warriors. I hope to be more consistent here now. I feel like I am a century behind.
    You see, it’s weird, how my mind always has some excuse, whether that be related to my studies or nofap. It’s almost as if I’m,.. I’m my own enemy. I’m tired of me telling myself about ideal new beginnings and flapping like a stupid, an idiot! I am tired of telling myself this time I’ll do better and end up making the same mistakes again! I AM tired of making excuses. I am tired of feeling like a hypocrite, because every time I say I’ll do a thing and then don’t do it!

    I need a serious rearrangement in my constitution, and I don’t know where to begin.
    This thing needs to be talked of more. This addiction is almost ubiquitous. It’s hard to find someone around here that ain’t flapping. And I,.. outwardly I may look like a good person, but,… I have made mistakes. Still make mistakes. And I can’t seem to shake it off.

    Let’s see. But one thing I think I know, is,… I’ve got to commit. Sincerely.

    1 day - At Buckland, Bilbo gives you Sting - an Elven short-sword made in Gondolin. It will turn blue when porn forces are around.
    Quest Item - Sting :emoji_zap:

    Sting would be very helpful indeed because usually we don't notice the impact of triggers. It's a subtle process until the urges are so strong that they overpower us. Maybe if we watch ourselves we are more able to notice it.

    @Redemptionisrequired big number, congrats

    Good move bro, keep it up. I would also suggest when you´re triggered to be around people, since socialization not only prevents relapses, but it also releases dopamine in a positive way ;)

    Keep it up!
