    Day 24
    I am going great but since I skipped meditation coz I was super busy..
    I kinda have hard time with nofap monk mode..
    This made me realize that how much meditation helps to calm me down.. It really does ..
    Power ups are really important for me
    Like I said till last month I used to relapse the day I didn't meditate... Now thanks to a good streak I can manage few days without meditation but it is still important really important..

    Moral of the story : you have to give your best if you wanna get rid of this addiction once for all

    Day 24. Some stress from work is testing my determination to continue. I'm glad I have so much momentum behind me and I feel so strong in my conviction.

    Life is good and I am thrilled to face every day as it is. Good or bad.

    Day 10
    I will be two weeks clean from porn on Saturday, and I will be a hobbit on Monday at 8:30PM. This is the longest I have made it in weeks, and other than the PMO relapse dreams, I am going strong.

    My mom was hospitalized yesterday after they discovered a heart infection and they thought she might have had a heart attack. Thankfully her heart is healthy, and though it is a viral infection, her immune system should pass it in the next week, so her life should not be in danger. It was definitely a concern. He doctor told her to go to the emergency room because her symptoms were reminiscent of a blood clot, but after a lot of tests, she just has a virus that irritated her heart.

    The last week has seen a lot of stressors that if I were not controlling my urges and avoiding triggers, would have been enough to push me over the edge. I am quite proud of myself, and the fact that I am keeping my low bar for reset/relapse promise leading me to work extra hard, and to not make excuses.

    Best,

    I relapsed again last night. Checking back in with 0 full days down.

    It's been a weird last few weeks. I've been letting circumstances beyond my control get to me, instead of being proactive. I plan to check in here everyday until I establish a positive, anti-PMO routine that facilitates my life goals.

    Start a hand written Journal. It helps. I would not be on day 9 if I wasn't writing in a journal right now. The first day I wrote out why I never wanted to relapse again. It is night and day how much more aware of urges and what is going on with my reboot. Write in it every single day. I have missed one day in my journal and I was hurting that day.

  17. Unfortunately we all get urges, no matter what we do. The day you have no urges is the day you have no libido. Which hopefully never happens.
    My longest streak is 125 days and I had urges to a greater or lesser extent every day of those 125 days. We just have to force ourselves to not act on the urges.
    And if there are any obvious triggers like social media or things like that, then maybe dial down on them.
    But there is no secret answer that will make it easy. Hang in there, you can do it :)

    it´s good bro. but nofap by itself only gives a part of the benefits. we got to keep the good habits running (sleep, nutrition, physical exercise, hobbies, etc). and then the cocktail of: life pmo free + good habits = great life ;)
