    Day 3, i.e. 2 days complete.

    I feel more confident and positive already. I can't take anything for granted this time.

    Here I returns!

    Step by step we can do it. Although I relapsed in this period, I see that the frequency is lower than the prevoius months to enter in NoFap. That´s a good sign: there is an end - the Orodruin. Finally we will destroy the ring. Stay strong, my fellows!

    i relapse again brothers and sisters, sorry.

    my previous pmo session was not good, so the idea of getting it done right was haunting me today and in a moment of weakness and loneliness i relapse. but finally the session was good, the orgasm was good, so i feel relieved now :). i´m officialy ready to start the streak :)

    may this be the last time that i fap, honestly.

    day 0 here we go :)

    Meanwhile the fellow members have upgraded and/or reached:

    @Fighter_4_life - Uruk-Hai
    @Alex_Al - 450 days of journey, halfway the mountainside of Mount Doom :)

    Congratulations to both!! :)

    Continuining with Universal Man and a interesting aproach ;)

    Have a great day!!!

    Day 2

    Was up until 3AM typing up a math assignment for Friday, but it is submitted, and I did not have any urges in my tired state, so I am glad about that. I have my first full day of work today from 3:30-8:30PM, though I am an online drop-in tutor, so hopefully I should be able to do some homework in between students.

    Best,

    It must be hard to have been reintroduced to PMO after so long, and it has hijacked your brain again, but you made it 170+ days before and if you made it that long, then you certainly can make there again and beyond. You just need to give yourself grace, and acknowledge that though you have fallen far, Gandalf fell even further, and he came back as a White Wizard, so you certainly can make it 500 day again. (I know I am not the best to give advice at he moment since I just came off of a several day binge, but seeing how far you made it should be and inspiration to us all. Next stop, White Wizard!)

    Best,

    Ya @RiseToGreatness
    I agree with mathman on this as i also came after a binge... Which lasted more than 10 days..
    But as universal man says
    If you come off the long streak you have a partially healed wound..
    The more you scratch (binge) the more the wound becomes fresh and a time will come when your scratching (binging) will undo all the progress..
    So you are back at square 1..
    So don't let it happen.. A reset after long streak is not a bad thing you do have some healing left but don't binge
    Hope that helps

    I relapsed again about an hour and a half ago. Feeling fairly down and depressed right now. I'm getting back in the groove of replacement habits like cooking, exercising, and reading but not as quickly as I would like. One less than helpful habit that I do is over-dwelling on my failures and beating myself up for past mistakes. I need to be better at letting things go.

    Here's a video that makes me feel kinda better. I hope it can do the same for you.

    I have completed another day. I did it by reading rebooting material and coming back regularly to NoFap.

    Stay vigilant, my friends! I see a few people falling and a few with many days free. The choice is yours.

    All the Best,
    Al

    Well I am on day 3 and I got fired today. I have been emotionally tense since I came home. I am trying to spin it positively but it is very painful deep down. Life is tragedy and I wouldn't have it any other way. There are opportunities elsewhere opening up for me I just have to grab at them.
