    I've been fighting to quit PMO for so long that if I ever succeed I probably won't live long enough to celebrate it since I will die crying from happiness.

    I have not looked at porn or porn-sub since Friday, but I masturbated at 8:30pm last night. I suppose it is progress to have not looked at porn while I did it, but it is still a reset. I don’t consider it a full relapse, as I define that as porn/porn-sub with masturbation, whereas a one time masturbation, or viewing porn without masturbation as a one time thing are more resets to my counter. Granted, if I go on a masturbation binge, and spend too much time looking at porn or porn-sub without masturbating, I count that as a full relapse. To be honest, before Friday, I should have reset my counter numerous times as I looked at pornographic images or bikini photos several times even if I did not go all out masturbating. Now to keep myself accountable, if I intentionally look up porn or porn-sub and do not get off within a couple seconds, I will reset. And I do that more than two-three times in a day, I will reset. And if I masturbate without climax, without stopping myself almost immediately, I will reset, because that is technically edging.

    I made it 33 days without porn and porn-sub and I made it 24 days without masturbation about a month ago, but there were technically days where under my new criteria, I should have reset. Now let’s hope I can hold myself accountable and come on here every morning. I have been depressed a lot lately, and getting up late and I want to start getting up early again at 6AM regardless of how I feel. Of course I will be tired, but I am tired when I get up at 10-11AM as well. I am always tired, so getting up at 6AM will be better, as well as going back to no screen time half an hour before bed.

    Best,

    Day 6
    Survived ! Damn days 4-6 so hard, yesterday I stayed whole day alone at home. Doing nothing but somehow I managed to survive. True is .... This group, this challenge and you people helped me survive, u were the reason I didnt fail. I couldnt come here and say "relapse". I was like : I cant let down my brothers here. I am there for a reason! For you too! If i fail I might triger some brothers to fail with me as well. Yeah The last sentence is really huge guys, try to think that way : If u fail, some of us might fail with u as well! STAY STRONG and NEVER GIVE UP! Try to feel the love, I feel like LOVE is the ultimate weapon agaist porn ;]

    So Day 6 is on! Wasnt here for over a month!

    Admin and rest : I was thinking if we could change the first step to Smeagol/Gollum instead orc.

    Gollum is kinda weakest guy in Ring industry :D

    What u think? ;]

    Day 13.

    Today I have a bad sense over me. I didn´t see porn, nor touch me in a inapropiate way. It´s like my body wants to relapse. That´s a bad habit, a vice. But we are made to virtue. As Don Miguel de Cervantes wrote:

    <<La senda de la virtud es muy estrecha y el camino del vicio, ancho y espacioso.>>
    <<The path of virtue is very narrow and the path of vice is wide and spacious.>>

    It´s easy being an orc and hard an elf. What do you choose? I think that it is a clear answer. However, <<del dicho al hecho hay un trecho>>, that it to say, <<it’s one thing to say something and another to actually do it>>. You must do sacrifices and fight with yourself. Here you have a Fellowship to get rid off that ugly vice. You can do it, we can do it.

    St. Agnes of Rome, pray for us.

    In one hand, it´s a good sign because you didn´t look porn while you relapsed. In the other hand, you can clearly see that some images were putting you in the path of M. Probably, the mayority of us first fall in P (although you only saw a bikini in social media) to finally doing M. It´s rare to go directly for it, and even for our situations, strange. Remember how Smeagol, before kill Deagol, only want his Ring. Then he tried to steal It, and last he killed for It. The path of vice, not only is wide and spacious -as I said in my previous post-, it´s also a slippery slope.

    Watch your eyes and your thoughts, when the urge -or the curiosity, or whatever- appears. It that moment you can fight. But when you start to fall down in the slide... and the speed increases... Probably you will finish in the wall of PMO at the end.

    Stay calm. You have us. Try to learn something in each relapse to became stronger. Remember: <<The art of winning is learned in defeat>>. Now you lose battles, tomorrow you are going to win the war.
