    Day 95.

    Finally found consistency in my exercises. My body is now more able to be comfortable while asleep or sitting down. You become noticeably more aware of yourself when you are not lost in fantasy.

    that´s because you only abstained from pmo for a while. that´s a commom problem with addicts. knowing and creating the path that separates abstention from self-mastery.

    abstaining: for a change of luck your life doesn´t offer the possibity to engage in pmo. sheer circunstances, so to say.

    overcoming: you acknowledge pmo as a destructive behaviour. you identify all the causes that makes you engage in pmo, and you create alternative responses to everyone of them.

    see how you have matured so far in your personal skills to deal with your causes bro. and of course, see what skills you still need to develop. Let´s go!!!! :)

    you need to release some sexual tension that´s building up, it´s normal when we stop pmo. so try to do workouts or sports, they´re great to release tension and the feel good hormones :).

    Go for a run bro ;) Here´s a push ;)

    "The best mindset for quitting porn"

    Brother,

    When you made the decision to quit your compulsive behavior with porn and masturbation, did you think of your happiness?

    Or do you think about reducing your pain.

    The pain of hurting a wife or girlfriend
    The pain of your escalating porn tastes
    The pain of mediocrity
    The pain of not doing better at your career

    When you make decisions from a place of fear and avoiding pain, that decision will rarely include happiness.

    People exist voluntarily in all sorts of unsatisfactory situations:

    - A career that doesn’t pay enough and you aren’t passionate about
    - A marriage that died years ago or a marriage of convenience
    - An unhealthy habit with food, cigarettes or alcohol

    Even though these situations cause you pain, you do not move on from them until you believe that there is a better option available to you.

    Until then, you feel unable to make progress.

    If you don’t feel that there is a better option than your current relationship which s guaranteed to make you happier- you simply wont change.

    Similarly, if you don’t believe that quitting porn will generate happiness in your life, you won’t move forward.

    You’ll stay stuck wondering why you cant be consistent, why you won’t use certain strategies, why you keep “giving up” and why you are lacking in “motivation”

    The solution is simple- change your rebooting mindset from avoiding pain to gaining happiness.

    Your brother in this struggle,
    J.K “Be Happy” Emezi

    Day 0,
    Fapped, read and then watched porn. It didn't even felt good.
    Also cut my hair, cause of it - i look like shit but it doesn't itch so much. I will call a doctor tomorrow, don't worry. Also am another 9 days in quaratine, I've been home over a month now, I wanna go to school already. I also have Cambridge English exam in 2.5 weeks. I really need to get my shit together real quick.
    I will need to restrain Youtube, at least for the first two-four weeks. Yeah and i have to start meditating again.

    Day 13,

    Had a trigger yesterday that I was able to walk away from (not after some amount of struggle).

    I hope you all are well and keeping happy despite COVID!

    Hey @Gallade_Templar if it were me I'd cut out the peeking. When we peek we are splitting our mind in two and trying to numb our own awareness. You are literally ingesting drops of poison, highly addictive poison, My two cents is to go for a marathon walk or something as soon as possible, in nature if possible, like literally just walk for hours, walk until that stuck energy is rechannelled and cleansed through your body & mind and you no longer feel the urges and have renewed your commitment to be free from poison again. As I said just 2 cents from my struggles with fishing, throughout this year - & just to be clear, in no way shape or form am I saying I know more than you - we're all struggling to get clear of this shit storm together.

    Make sure you get regular breaks away from the screen ( I struggle big time with this), ideally 10 mins for every hour - garden, walk, exercise, clean, laundry, call a friend, file your papers, read a book - staying seated in front of a screen all day, as 99% or us are, just ain't healthy

    This is terrific advise! I just started doing this actually. I installed an Ubuntu break time app on my system to help me with this. I read an article about a study done where people were more productive when working for 52 minutes and taking a break for 17 minutes. Your eyes need a break as well as your body.

    @Cartographer I would heed to this. ;)

    Onward we go!
     
  19. TITLE - ORC
    Last streak - 2
    Total PMO - 145
    Goal - 21 days
    Day- 1/21
    I am going to take big decision now. That I will not use my mobile for 21 days. I have tried no so many times and failed again and again. So I took this decision that for 21 days I will not use my mobile. I will keep it aside from me all the time. I will not watch YouTube or any other search app. I simply abandon it for 21 days.

    Day 13,

    Update, minor slip up, began down the Instagram path and moved away. Did not get into P and I am feeling happy about the choice to not to pursue further. I am intending to use @crazyhorse11 's more effectively. Also, thank you for the application recommendation @fromsheeptowolf .

    Moving away from the screen, just wanted to keep myself accountable for the slip
