    Day 2.

    I relapsed 2 days ago. I'm now back to being a lowly little orc.

    It sucks, but I'm gonna keep moving forward.

    Day 18

    I missed yesterday. It was a rough and so is this morning. Not because of PMO but because I had met a woman only on Monday and we texted back in forth all day yesterday, but around 5PM, I said something with the attempt to make her laugh/feel good, and it had the opposite effect. She blew up at me and I unfortunately spammed her trying to make it up to her. So far nothing, and now I am feeling down because I screwed up a good thing with clumsy speech. If I do not hear back from her by 9PM, I will delete the app and try again on a later date many months down the road.

    Best,

    Someone posted a video from YouTube that I liked. I had to delete my original post, as it was against Hell, which is of a religious nature. My reasoning was that the video mentioned Heaven and Hell, so I posted my feelings about beliefs in such things. Now, I think the video should be taken down, although I do not know whether I will go back and find it in the previous post. It was probably a couple or few days ago, and I am not bothered that much by it. Thanks to anyone who saw my original post a minute ago, for understanding my feelings.

    I am back at one day. Yesterday I edged and did not come clean about it to either you all or my wife. For that I apologize. Now everything is in the open with you, and I will come clean to my wife when I find an opportune time. I know that should be right now, but with her migraines I am using them as an excuse not to make her hurt more right now. I will tell her, I promise.

    To everyone who has more time free, thanks for inspiring the rest of us by regularly posting. You keep me going!

    We all have the same temptations more or less, and we need to 'destroy the ring,' each of us. I will become the person I need to be to get to Mordor and burn my ring! I am close to being done for good. I am now down to only edging and lying about that, and I know that it will cause enough 'hell' to keep me away from masturbating to orgasm or, far worse, watching illegal porn-- and all free porn online is illegal. Trust me, do not try to challenge this by looking for some that's legal. You won't. Besides, you'll end up fapping again to crap that, even if it were legal, would be unethical.

    Thanks, speaking of ethics, to whoever posted the aforementioned video, even with its mention of religiously-believed places, as it helped me see the bad in objectifying people. I have been doing that so much that it is now ingrained, even though all along I have been against it. Ignorance is not bliss.

    Have a great time until I see you all tomorrow, I hope. I will try to get on daily like I am supposed to. It may make the difference between immediate failure and immediate, lasting success.

    Be well, happy, prosperous and, most importantly, successful (as it enables the other three)!

    It is day 17 and I have not had an urge today. I have implemented a new habit to journal twice a day once when I wake up and once right before I go to bed. It has worked today and it is tailored specifically to help me where I am weakest.

    Thank you for coming clean. It’s not easy. It takes guts and strength of character.

    And you’re a better man because of it.

    Solid!

    Latest update: Day 35 - Entered the cold Misty Mountains, the Hithaeglir.
    Didn't sleep too well past 2 days, so I went to the gym and tucked in early yesterday. I usually believe that nofap side effects are mild at best and we just need to man up and ignore them, but damn sometimes they hit hard and in a very tricky way. I had 3 wet dreams! Woke up each time because by now these feel like nightmares; although I don't fault myself for having them. This was followed by a dream with my ex (recently broke up) and a friend who betrayed me. They were grilling me about the mistakes I made during my pmo days. These mistakes haunt my life everyday, and this was the icing on the cake from this set of what i consider to be nightmares. I woke up freaked out, felt like someone was deliberately fiddling with all my weaknesses to make me fail. Luckily first thing I checked was nofap and I stumbled upon two motivational quotes. First was someone who has been reading a book about inner struggles. The gist of the quote was that we lie to ourselves so much sometimes that the lie takes over our lives. I'm not doing it justice but it perfectly reflected the pmo journey as we neglect important aspects of life. Second was a Rocky quote stating that success in life is not about how hard you hit, it's about getting up after you've been hit. I take responsibility for my pmo actions and mistakes during those times, and I'm happy to take punishment to recover and correct my life trajectory. So I felt very good after reading those quotes, my nofap streak is still very clean. It appears my resolve to cut out pmo is strong, and it keeps it simple to avoid pmo. Stay strong mates! Regardless of your situation, find yourself and fight!
