    Today marks 17 days. I'm very happy with my progress. The last few days have been very stressful for me. Both in my work and in personal development projects. It has been a struggle for me to maintain this streak. I've had my will continually tested. But I've managed to persevere.

    Day 04: My sleep schedule has been a little off the past few days, and it’s starting to get to me. Need to change that and get back to a set bedtime and wake up time. I’m still healing from my previous relapse, but it’s starting to get better. Just taking everything one day at a time and focusing on recovery.

    Not relapsing on the same day feels more difficult somehow. Need to put some space between the failure. I'm going to leave the house now and go for a walk. Sick of this laptop. Had just 5 hours in, but I guess when the streak is only a few hours it is less of a deterrent.

    Day 0: 34 minutes in as of now.

    It's day 17

    Personal best on nofap till date

    I hope I can reach more

    But often I have this long inner chat like I maladaptively daydream about people who hurt me who with whom I have unresolved past issue and that really sucks coz honestly it is such a wastage of time and productivity.. I suck at academics because of it
    And i did some Google search Rumination and maladaptive daydreams are side effect of severe trauma as coping method to escape..
    But i notice it increases the days I didn't meditate or I resist a trigger in my mind...
    Any solutions /suggestions?

    Good day, gents. Just reporting in. My last lapse was over one week ago.

    I'm not sure I've changed my whole life yet, but I'm working on it. I've been more serious about routine and scheduling and have gotten back to working out, which is helpful. I am tempted by PMO especially when stressed and anxious, and disorganization/lack of structure makes me more anxious. Time to continue making progress!

    I relapsed this evening, unfortunately... I think I need to be far more strict with my social media use: mindlessly scrolling through social media with a subconcious desire to see something triggering is how all my relapses start. As I do it more and more it becomes easier and easier to justify relapse until I break. From now on I think I should only check my phone for social media and such once per day, towards the end at 5PM.

    Day 15.

    I´m a Hobbit now!

    A Elbereth Gilthoniel O Elbereth Starkindler,
    silivren penna míriel white-glittering, slanting down sparkling like a jewel,
    o menel aglar elenath! the glory of the starry host!
    Na-chaered palan-díriel Having gazed far away
    o galadhremmin ennorath, from the tree-woven lands of Middle-earth,
    Fanuilos, le linnathon to thee, Everwhite, I will sing,
    nef aear, sí nef aearon! on this side of the Sea, here on this side of the Ocean!

    A Elbereth Gilthoniel O Elbereth Starkindler,
    o menel palan-díriel, from heaven gazing afar,
    le nallon sí di'nguruthos! to thee I cry now beneath the shadow of death!
    A tiro nin, Fanuilos! O look towards me, Everwhite!

    Day 2 Not an urge in sight. I am surprised how well keeping a journal works. I read my bible this morning when I woke up. I am a bit bored so I might go outside and do some yard work.
