    Day 7. Yay! Been doing really good. Did a 5 day streak, fell once. Then a 15 day streak and fell 3 or 4 times and am now on a week long streak. This is very good. Much much better than usual. Only time I was blessed more than this was when I had a 25 day streak. One day at a time.

    been feeling a bit sluggish and out of sorts. Similar feeling to the time I had an 18 day streak. I fell because of this feeling. Flatline maybe. There is some soreness too. I took a Tylenol and I seam to be feeling better. Have to remember to take one again if I am feeling that way. Maybe I am low on dopamine. Perhaps some healthy dopamine releases are needed. Must get through this. No more pmo.

    Checking in. Three days to Wizardhood! As part of my plan this week I'm reading all the Dresdon Files crime novels, about an urban Wizard. They're cheesy but fun, and exactly what I need as I prepare to cross the 90 day threshold.

    I'm seeing a lot of fishing behavior on this thread from the past few days. I don't know how else to say it, but if you don't learn how to avoid fishing, you'll never kick this addiction. Until you hate fishing as much as you hate PMO--actually, until you see fishing as no different than porn--you're f'ed. I have 15 years of falling flat on my face bc of fishing to back that statement up, 15 years of wondering why I could never get past 3 months of sobriety, without ever realizing what fishing was doing to me (or, more accurately, without ever being willing to admit the role fishing was playing). I urge all of you struggling with fishing to make a plan, read up on the behavior, listen to the universal man podcast on fishing, do everything you can to see it not as an innocent gray area, but as an alcoholic's first sip of beer. You're on the slide, and there's only one direction you go from there.

    Be strong everyone!

    Your strength doesn't come from techniques, it comes from within you. You have to find the resolve and tenacity.

    Day 125. Definitely feeling some urges today. I think it may be a chaser effect from some of the urges that I experienced over the weekend. I had a very intense wet dream, one of the most real wet dreams I have ever had. I woke up wondering if I had O. This forum has really helped to keep track of the urges I am experiencing and understand what is triggering them. Pushing through!

    (also aplied to brother @Themomentum )

    well, my rule of thumb for that is: if the site has triggering materials, then you shouldn´t be there. is that simple.

    entering a site while tip toeing, afraid of stumbling across triggers is like walking in a mine field. and for the subconscious mind you´re fishing. to detect this trap ask yourself "is there any percentage of me that wants to stumble across sexy contents?", if the positive is "yes", even if it´s like 1%, then your fishing, and sooner or later you´re gonna be pulled under.

    it doesn´t matter if the site isn´t porn. it doesn´t matter if it´s a tv channel with bikini girls. if you´re close to sexy material, you´re fishing. be honest with yourself bro and stay away from those places. plus everytime you´re fighting a temptation you´re losing willpower, once you deplete all your willpower, the fish will grab the bait and it´s game over.

    Checking in Fellowship. Feeling good although brain fog has appeared again, oh well :(. at least i´m feeling much more peaceful and in a good mood :)

    Uruk-Hai today ;)

    The following members are well on their journey. Congratulations!!! :)

    @Thomas3 - Buckleberry Ferry / Shire
    @Revanthegrey - Bridge of Khazad-dûm / Moria
    @OttarrTheVendelCrow - Ithilien / Gondor

    A special wave of support to our brother @bob200 and @Themomentum which are struggling now. Rise my brothers, you can do it!

    My Fellowship, the other day a brother on a sub section posted a movie about semen retention. Yesterday i saw a part of it, and today i saw the rest in my work break. The movie is really really good!

    It revolves around the Jewish scriptures but the message is so clear that it can be understood by everybody. it talks about semen retention, masturbation, porn, deviant behaviours, etc, wonderful movie!! and i will probably watch it again ;)

    Here it is. Thank me later ;). Have a great day!!! :)

    I agree with you, just even if someone quits every triggering site,social app etc. there will be allways something to triggers you, mosty its really random.
    Most of us is trying to forget about porn, and not thinking about it is keeping us from failing, but when someone or something just little bit gives us remind of porn/sexual content, our brain will start thinking about it.
    Its just a mastery, to control our thoughts, and forget about it as soon as posible, because if its not handled it will be soon out of controll and in the end we fail.

    just noticed this. Sorry I missed it. Thank you my good man. Feelings of inadequacy sum it up pretty good. Getting there. Day by day. God bless you for taking the time to show you care. Helps the old feelings of inadequacy. .

    Day 9.
    It is funny, sometimes a feel a desire desire for porn, not a urge, but a felling similar to when seeing the blue sky and the infinite (the ones who read A Song of Ice and Fire will remember Tyrion at the Eyrie's prison) you feel the desire to jump, even though you don't have any suicidal thoughts, strange, maybe a deadly curiosity it is.
