    You can do this brother! but you also need to not go on those porn subs... go to a lecture when you feel like doing that... watch one of those Jordan Peterson things and clips and if that isn't stopping you ( which would be weird M=ing to an old guy...but your choice) ...if that doesn't stop you go directly into the cold shower!
    I usually throw myself into the cold water when I'm getting a little too cozy and comfortable with myself.

    Day 5

    Today was much easier than yesterday, grateful for the work that keeps me occupied. Told my girlfriend that I love her for the first time today, and she said the same - I’m over the moon and hopeful for the future, but I know the battle still carries on.

    May God be with you brothers, and let us continue supporting one another.

    This is a copy of my post in the Super Sayan challenge which applies to everyone here too:
    From today I introduced the extra 'tip' to follow it's 8)Pray to God (at least twice daily in the morning and in the evening):)
    Checking in !
    Super tips followed:
    1)Meditate-done
    2)Eat healthy-done
    3)Training/Workout-done = Practice physical exercise
    4)Read and study rebooting-done ~ Follow trigger prevention plan.
    5)Focus on your career-done ~ Get occupied.Work on your hobbies and dreams.
    6)Take cold shower-done
    7)Sleep well-done
    8)Pray to god-done
    9)Stay accountable daily on following these 'tips', on relapse if it happened(including what thoughts and feelings led to it, what were the surrounding circumstances and what have you learned to never repeat it again)-done
    10)avoid alcohol,drugs and all sort of intoxicants
    To those brothers who keep wallowing in never ending relapses :
    You will never get out of this vicious cycle unless you accept and practice all of these 'tips' honestly and diligently everyday.

    Alright! Checking in on Day 57! been kind of lazy as my 30 day abs app provided me with a rest day, so I did no workouts today except 2 push-ups.
    Got close to relapsing as I went on Instagram to search for someonem and as I pressed the search button... of course there was a plethora of e-thots and onlyfan girls... So my attention was detracted for like 3-4 minutes seeing if she's a hoe or just a simple instamodel with a little cleavage (she was just another hoe with all porn websites in the description) and after visiting her youtube to see if people are subbed and of course she had 10k subs just by posting 10 videos with her cleavage, I got really frustrated. I'm getting Mgtowi every time I see these kind of things... so much so, that I feel tempted to use these tactics to dupe other men that are desperate like that.
    The frustration is... that from just one click, from just one "popular" picture... I got to lose 5 minutes...and not just 5 minutes … 5 minutes being angrym frustrated and close to a relapse. Now... of course, I understand this as it being my failure... for not being a sexy blond woman with huge bazonkazonkaz or interesting or literate on my videos but I guess there is a lot of place for me to improve myself (and that's a good thing) and I know that the photo did it's thing... it stole my attention so easy that it was terrifying! So terrifying that I jumped from my bed directly into the cold shower, and as short as cold showers are... I doubled the time and turnings and I felt better refocusing on the things I have to do and learn today without investing any more energy to any thought surrounding those types of women and the men that fund them.
    Aaaanyway! I'm glad and proud that I am here before you on day 57! Because that is what matters the most!

    Day 1

    Guys, I blew it again. A thought related to my specific porn niche occurred to me yesterday, and I just couldn't/didn't get away from it. I rationalized my entertainment of it. It led very quickly to actually looking at porn.

    I am very disappointed in myself. I feel flat and uninspired. But not totally discouraged. I need to get back up and fight.

    in the past, what that's meant for me is scheduling my day and sticking to it, getting into work and relationships, etc.

    One thing I'm going to do today is write down some resolutions for the coming weeks.

    Get back at it brother! Light that internal fire and lead from there. I slipped hard this weekend and am on the mend. Lets get back to it together this new year and work towards becoming all that we can be!

    You got this!

    Day 2,

    Another run this morning, slower than yesterdays, but another 5 miler. Had another round of blood tests checking for any autoimmune issues that might be causing the low blood counts. No real urges, but a few pings that surfaced here and there.

    Thank you again Fellowship!

    Would you please share the tips you were given for sleep? I’m trying to stick to a regular bed/rise time, but any additional advice would be welcome!
