    Thank you @RiseToGreatness! Keep going strong!
    And I can't agree more. Fishing is extremely dangerous. It's one of the main reasons why I have relapsed many times.
    Let's keep this streak going!

    They are the temptation that drains you out of energy and they are nearly as bad as PMO. Fight them if you can by being aware of them and controlling your attention focus by not giving them any when they come. stay strong brother.

    That's a really helpful habit to form.

    I used to fantasize a lot, like to the point where fantasy was the most debilitating part of this addiction. It was 100% fueled by my porn use. Realize it's your brain following the same loop. Fantasies are not something you can willfully prevent from happening, but they are something you can respond to and re-shape over time. I've found that developing a physical response like pinching yourself, snapping a rubber band, or biting your tongue helps re-associate those fantasies with pain. Combined with a rational response to fantasies and reduced intake of porn (I've had slips in my journey prior to joining this community), my lustful fantasizing has been very reduced and has not been missed.

    Dear friends, dear brothers in struggle, I regret very much to have to report that I fell to the orcs of PMO this morning and am once more among their number.

    It hurts. I'm still assessing what went wrong. There was insomnia. I wasn't swift in dismissing the thoughts and temptations. There's not much to do at 4 in the morning apart from get some melatonin and lie down. I guess I just wasn't serious enough about my thoughts.

    I've been drinking too much over the past month and eating too much during the last week. Not enough working out. Getting better at prayer and starting to get (slowly) into meditation. I really want to become a better Onan during the next year.

    3 days of no exercise with a little bit of junk food threw me off the course I guess. What started from a curious thought about a yoga exercise led to another and I relapsed. There are no excuses for this kind of behaviour though. I should have known better but the most disturbing thought is I couldn't stop myself at many points.

    I stopped reading about nofap as well. Vigilance was grossly underrated by me I feel. Sorry brothers, but I am going back to an orc now. :(
    31-45 days is my weak zone. I will master it. Resetting my counter to 0.
