    Day 5.

    Weekend was good. My alarm went off at 6AM, this morning, but I did not get out of bed until 7:30AM when I took my shower, and then I laid with my cat until 9AM before finally getting up and having breakfast. I had a very good conversation with my mom at around 10AM (non-PMO related) about my relationship with my dad. I learned that I had been avoiding him subconsciously though it took her pointing that out to me to realize that. My dad and I are a lot a like, but our relationship is not the best. We both have depression, but he copes with alcohol whereas I cope with PMO. I am working on my PMO addiction and he still says that he does not have a problem, that he can drink in moderation (which is sometimes true, but not when he is worried about something, or depressed, which happens quite a bit).

    I have not had too many urges since my relapse last Wednesday at 1AM, and I have been staying off the internet for the most part which seems to be working, I just have to work on not staring into the abyss because I will ultimately be tempted to be consumed by it. That mean not even watching movies with nudity unless the film actually looks good and I am not watching it for the nudity. I know that the urges will return and be a lot stronger, I just need to keep focused.

    best,

    Day 1 completed successfully

    The first step in freeing yourself from your out of control behavior, is learning how to control it. You’re going to become a much happier man when you learn that;

    All the best brothers
    Your brother in this struggle

    I'm sorry brothers. I haven't posted in a while. I've had a tough week and I've been wearing the porn ring. The reason I didn't post is that I was ashamed for not acting the way I should have. But now I realize there's no place for shame in this challenge.

    First day down and half of the second one.

    We'll make it together!

    Day 23.
    Today wasn't easy, I almost relapsed, opened a tab... But, before click, I remembered what I want, how I felt when I relapsed, I remembered the effort of many how are in this challenge, people with more than 200 Days! And I remembered the person how inspired me on this journey.
    Myamoto Musashi, after the battle of Sekigahara, passed 4 years (18-22) studying and training. And between 1604 (22 years old) and 1612 (28 years old) Musashi peregrinated polishing his sword and spirit. During that time Musashi committed to become a true samurai and refused to see the person how he loved while pursuing his goal.
    What is NoFap near such sacrifice? Not see his beloved one for 10 years!
    And here I am, struggling because of a bunch of photons. This is truly a shame for me. Such poor will...
    I promise to my self not relapse until I achieve the 90 days!
    It may not be the 3660 days of Musashi, nor the 500 days of this challenge, but, because is nothing in comparison I must take that as a obligation, something that I must do if I want to be a man. If I cannot accomplish a promise to myself I am nothing.
    This is very personal, so I truly don't expect no one see this as a exhortation or a way to say that who relapse is not being serious. This position is actually how I see MY relapses, and MYSELF.
    The reason why I am writing this in the thread is the very the obvious method of committing in public.
    (If this text is a bit confusing sorry for my poor English, my native language is not English) ​

    Keep trying brother.
    Keep yourself busy in some or the other work.
    It will help greatly.
    And stay a bit away from social media. The kind of ads, models, etc. they show acts as triggers.
    I feel a bit uneasy using Instagram, so not using it since past 1 week.

    Don't loose hope brother. We will make it:emoji_thumbsup:

    126 days completed
    Day 127 check in...

    As now I know how to do Nofap. Now my main focus will be to take total controll on my thoughts and to not think about sex at all. I will not watch any kind of P-Subs intentionally, and if I watched it accidently then I will take my eyes off it asap. The idea is to starve my brain from lust as much as possible. After completing this second stage my third stage will be 'Total Semen Retention' like to completely stop having nightfalls and wet dreams. I know it will take a while to achieve it and path would be difficult but I will give my best.
