    Welcome to Middle Earth brother :). please change your counter to "no porn/no masturbation" since masturbation is not allowed in the challenge.

    Have a great day and stay with the Fellowship :)

    One more day of walking, brave carriers of the Ring.

    Lot´s of falls yesterday among the Fellowship. don´t forget to make 2 calendars, one global counter with clean days and relapse days, and one counter of consecutive days. that will help you realize how much you accomplished so far :). because it´s so easy to forget that when we fall.

    the Lord of the Rings saga as a lot to teach about mankind and struggles. To the falls i always liked this take from Frodo and Gandalf, it helped me a lot in my dark times.

    Keep rising my friends, @Fighter_4_life @Toni7 @Akeakua , you can do it!!!

    "Frodo: I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
    Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

    It's been a while since my last update.

    I peeked just a few minutes ago but fortunately didn't give in to MO. There's been some built up stress from traveling during the pandemic and I haven't been sticking to my normal habit routine due to being on the road. I've still got some momentum going so I'm gonna count this instance as a 'slip-up' and not a reset or relapse since it wasn't full PMO.

    It is day 25 in my streak. This morning I woke up with an urge to fantasize about porn. I was able to prevent myself from relapsing. I have spent most of my morning listening to nofap videos. It has been enlightening. I am determined to keep this streak since it is my longest one ever. I know I can keep it up until day 26.

    I find that when I update more often, I peek less. I wonder if it would be the same for you.

    I relapsed nine days ago, but said nothing and did not come onto NoFap every day. I have been corresponding with my accountability partner regularly, but other than that, I have been usually logging off. I plan to come and update my progress daily with this thread as well, if I can get myself to do so. Like I mentioned above, it helps me to stay away from porn and masturbation to come here daily.

    Also, meditation and exercise help, and these are what I have the accountability partner for, so I hope to step up my game in those two areas. I meditated today, but for the last several days I have not exercised, so I plan to exercise tonight.

    I hope everyone is well!

    Day 84! Successfully completed 12 weeks with no PMO and I can tell the difference! Feeling so much more motivated and getting way more done!

    Will hit a quarter of a year in one week, feeling successful. This is the longest chain of successful days I’ve completed in years!

    Something about this run feels different and more definitive. Feels like I’ve finally put enough puzzle pieces together over the last 15 years of seeking self-improvement to finally make a big and lasting transformation.

    Remembering how many times over the years I’ve stumbled and felt like nothing ever changes or gets better. But it doesn’t feel that way this time.

    Feeling incredibly hopeful and excited.

    Onwards and Upwards!!

    I am so happy, my friend, you inspire me and many people here. we are all going to get through this, and why? well we also have an opportunity to seek happiness, to smile from the heart, to feel the joy of winning a great battle, the greatest battle of our lives.

    we are warriors, all of you and each one special and unique with dreams and aspirations, we have the same enemy in the front line, today i say fucking PMO, easy fucking way out as always, i hate you for taking away the best minutes of my life, i hate you for bothering me for a long time and now i say PMO go to fuck, we are more than that, we are light in the dark, so PMO go to hell.

    i thank you all here from the bottom of my heart, you are great, you are special i know you light up many people's lives as you do mine. Thanks friends ! let's keep on rocking

    Yeah I suppose women can be objectified in Star Wars, though I have never really acted too much on that. I got into the novels more so than the movies and video games, though in the KOTOR games, despite admiring Bastilla every once in a while (it gets old quick), I spent more time freeing the slaves and helping people out. I have never ventured very close to the Dark Side in those games, and that comes with not really sexualizing the characters. As for Leia, knowing that Carrie Fisher was decades older than me was enough not to objectify her. Don’t get me wrong, I have viewed Star Wars porn, but I that was a while ago, and it is not the most realistic (as it is often a cartoon), so I never went all the way with it. Personally, I like the story and the characters more than the sex appeal. Like I said, my favorite aspect of Star Wars were the novels, especially of Legends continuity, and there are no images in those stories, so it is hard to get off to it. I do like Lord of the Rings a lot though, clearly, and I like the metaphors better than in Star Wars as Middle is essentially one large metaphor for life, death, and all the rest. I have not looked at porn in four weeks, and I do not think that I would be turned on too much by Star Wars at this point, since I rarely was before.

    Best,

    Day 26

    I am four weeks clean from porn today and I will be four weeks clean from all of PMO tomorrow at 8:30PM. My first full day as an elf will be on Wednesday, and I am very excited. This is the longest I have ever gone without PMO since my journey started with porn in July of 2007. I have spent the last 13 years of my life just giving into my urges, but I say at this point, “NO MORE!” Living in this Christian House has kept me really honest, and my game plan that I created 25 days ago is working superbly. I am not even approaching the edge, so the ring can not push me over.

    Best,
