    Day 02.
    Went back into learning again, and am sticking hard to reading books, less tv. Although I watched 2 episodes of a tv show. Also had a meditation session, it was a short one of only 5 mins, but I always see it as a success to start.
    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

    Day 5. Now slowly will resume the routine. I have not been able to go through everyone's chats recently but will go through and I know there's a lot of enthusiasm to be self-aware and self-confident of completing this challenge in 2021. The devil is now known to us brothers and sisters. Implementation of our own strategy is key now.
     
  5. Day 2 complete. Sorry I missed my check-in yesterday, whoops, but I'm doing quite well. Lots of family time the past couple days, which has been very good for keeping my thoughts away from PMO. Next couple days may be a struggle, as I usually get hit hard 3-4 days after a reset, but I'll be ready!

    @americanbison Cold showers are no joke dude, congrats on taking that step.

    2020 was the year I decided to join NoFap and make a serious, concerted effort to free myself from PMO. That makes it a good year. 2021 will be the year when I make unbelievable progress, and that will make it a great year!
     
  6. Relapsed after a 2-daystreak. Restarting the journey.
    Together we can conquer this.
    Let's go brothers :)

    Day 65.

    That´s right! For a lot of us was the year when we started to fight for our liberty. 2021 will be a year to win the battle and destroy the ring.

    The important thing is to get back up after each fall. And here you have us to help you.
    If you still cannot do many days in a row, do not worry so much about the number you are getting as because each day is PMO free. Match by match, battle by battle, day by day.

    St. James the Great, pray for us!

    Day 25. The urges are strong today. I had a wet dream and caught myself laying in bed fantasizing again. Avoiding this in the future is going to be key to success.

    Couldn't find the time to check in the last couple of days, but I am working on this.
    Also, late happy new year everyone! Wishing you all the best!

    Awesome for moving through procrastination! May I ask what BRACE stands for and where to find more about it?

    Checking in for today:

    I was blessed with a refreshing night's sleep, but along with that came vivid sexual dreams. I woke up a little frustrated that this good night's sleep also came with triggers. I took a while to work through my emotions in my morning routine.

    Dreams tend to be difficult triggers for me to deal with because the brunt of that immersive, emotionally charged, unfiltered vision hits me before I'm even fully conscious.

    What are some rationalizations, affirmations, thoughts, or practices to use to respond to triggering dreams in a moment of vulnerability?
     
  17. Hi Brothers, please read this post and set yourself free.

    Today no check-in from me, as a matter of fact, I will not be checking in anymore. Nor will I count my days. I will even leave NoFap in one week time. Not because I have given up, but because I have escaped, and you can do too. This method will change you: https://www.amazon.com/Allen-Carrs-Easy-Stop-Smoking/dp/0615482155 (took me about 8 hours to read, but I'm no native English speaker so you can probably do it faster, and it is completely free).

    I am not saying NoFap is bad, and that you won't benefit from NoFap. There are people that benefit from it and have escaped the PMO prison. But many others don't benefit from it, struggling for months only to relapse again and again, never freeing themselves. I know this is because of the brainwashing that they fell victim to. It's all about getting through to your mind that porn is a poison, or a prison, or whatever you want to call it. These 'urges' or 'cravings' everyone is talking about are not urging you to watch porn, they are the result of your previous PMO-session. Porn creates a void, it doesn't fill one! Watching porn will feed the little monster inside of you, it is poison and should thus be avoided. You don't take poison to overcome the effects of poison!

    The source I mentioned above will explain this far better than I can. Once you understand this, you understand why it doesn't make sense to count your days. Or to change all aspect of your life in order to battle PMO (since you are not battling, you are not giving anything up, you are simply escaping from a poisonous addiction). You don't have to follow a seemingly random list of 'tips' to beat PMO (although I find the 10 tips mentioned here to be good for your life nevertheless and I will continue following them, but not for the sake of beating PMO, just for the sake of having a better life).

    My point is: don't try to beat this addiction on willpower and by forcing yourself to count days and follow tips. Beat this addiction by learning about it through the provided link and start to see clearly: porn is a prison, and you can escape easily.

    Perhaps some of you don't agree with what is written here or don't want to believe that quitting this addiction is easy, providing you follow the instructions of the source and deeply understanding it. Or you don't want to believe me since I reset only a few days ago, and that is fine. Just search the internet and find that everyone who reads the book benefits from it, stating how they wished they read it sooner and how it is changing lives. I am staying on here for another week or so and would be happy to openly discuss it and share my own viewpoints on this topic. I just hope that many brothers will read the book and set themselves free.

    Read the book. Set yourself free.
