    Day 3 is in progress!
    Wanted to make a good restart so I cleaned my room on day 1.
    I have a hard time sleeping early and getting out of bed earlier, because of the vacation and the lockdown.
    Also, I was making progress exercising more a couple weeks ago, but I noticed that I slowly stopped doing this. This, in combination with the lack of sleep and getting out of bed late, probably caused my relapse.
    These are some of the things I am going to work on because I know that I can do better than my current situation.
    Much love to everyone in here!

  4. I'm starting my Lord of the Rings Challenge as a Hobbit on Day 16. Meditated at 6am, did some journaling and then searched for work. Urges were annoying yesterday and today, more than usual, so I must be starting the next phase of my PMO journey.

    Day 14. I never thought I would make it this far. My sexual energy has definitely returned. I had wet dreams last night and even had a dream of looking at porn that was pretty vivid. Someone was looking at porn and showed me it. I remember my heart starting to beat quickly and getting excited in the dream. I also remember being upset and worried that I had relapsed in my dream! I can't believe how much of a hold this addiction has on me. It inspires me to keep moving forward.

    Frodo's addiction to the ring is the best metaphor for what addiction is like. The need to destroy the addiction coupled with the desire to indulge in your pleasures. It really never occurred to me what The Lord of The Rings was about until I started this challenge - a hero's journey in which the individual has to overcome the addiction that is blinding/weakening him in order to become victorious and get his life back. When I was young I read the book as a fun adventure but overlooked the lessons it can teach us. I may start reading the books again.

    Back to day 0. Usually up to day 6 I receive basically no urges but around days 6-8 I always end up thinking about P more and get many more urges. I'm gutted as well as I failed in every aspect of PMO. There will be bumps in the road but that doesn't mean I can't get over them. We go again.

    well bro, yeah, your sex drive for real sex will gonna increase a lot when you´re rebooting. why? because now you´re spilling it on pmo. and the body has a finite amount of sexual desire. so if you´re wasting it in pmo, you won´t have enough for real sex. so don´t worry about that, just keep doing the reboot and stay away from all kinds of lust: images, sounds, fantasies, etc... and your brain will start to wire for natural sex with your natural partner.

    as for sex, it´s very normal for brothers to be overwhelmed by urges after sex (chaser effect), so you must develop strategies and a tight triggers plan that prevents you from falling prey to the chaser effect.

    day 0 of 5 - I had a really bad night's sleep. The whole day I was tired and somehow exhausted. I learned from my mistakes. I got myself earplugs and a sleep mask.

    21 Days accomplished.

    Getting ready to leave Bree. This is where those orc bastards got me last time. This time I've got my head on a swivel.

    Forward towards Rivendell!

    Dear fellowship, I haven't posted in a while. I managed to get 5 days but I failed yesterday, no binging at least.
    I know I will do better with your help and support. Let's destroy this ring!

    Hi everyone. My journey is going well. I feel like myself now. I will face the end of the year with a face held high. It was a shitty year for me. I lost a lot. My lifestyle was hit very hard. Exceptionally hard. I am in shambles. I am grateful to still have my job and to not be facing any financial difficulties. But my mental health is in shambles. I lost a relationship. I haven't been able to make my career move I've been building up towards. I am more determined than ever. Never stay down. Always look up and aim high.
