    sure you can have sex bro. that´s not a problem to the challenge. masturbation as a solo act is the problem, and against the rules ;)

    Have a great day Companion!! :) Here´s a powerful post from our brother @CrimsnBlade on how to deal with urges. very useful material ;). Thanks brother :)

    "I have learned something helpful similar to your suggestions. When a trigger hits, I try to remember to B.R.A.C.E. (from the FreedomFight.org, great website for recovery if you haven't already come across it).

    B - Breathe deeply (4 seconds in, 4 seconds out) for a minute or so
    R - Remember the truth (for me it's reading scripture, but just remember who you want to be and the truth about what porn really does to you)
    AC - Accountability Call (call or text accountability and let them know you're struggling. Bringing light to the struggle can diffuse the power it has over you)
    E - Escape (leave wherever you are that made you tempted immediately)

    One of the keys they talk about is to practice this even when you're not tempted, 2-3 times per day minimum. You train your brain to start to react like that when temptation hits, and once it really does, your first reaction will be to BRACE instead of submit to the tempting material."
     
  7. Day 5 is almost over. It's getting easier.
     
  8. Yeah Bro you shall rise again , you can do it, thats the attitude.:emoji_muscle:;)

  13. Day 14.

    Yesterday I started reading YBOP and while it's very interesting I feel I'm triggered by it and feel i shouldn't read it. Does anyone else get triggered like this?
     
  14. In my experience there are some things that can be really big triggers for me but it doesnt mean they can be for others , so in those cases I usually try to avoid those things because in my case they can be a danger in a moment of weakness. I hope that helps hehe . ;)

    Day 100. Still going strong, but a long while till the next update. So I dropped by to wish That you find yourselves in this journey and take control. Stay strong lads.
     
  17. Day 2 complete. I've been spending a lot of time as an Orc, heh.

    I have to read a novel for one of my classes that has a few scenes which I wouldn't call "graphic," exactly, but the language can be explicit. As I was grinding through another chapter today I felt that the material could be triggering to me, or at least that it might put me in a mindset to be more easily triggered. I got through the reading just fine, but first I took a few moments to pull my head out of that space and deliberately center myself to be conscious of the temptations.
