  3. Day 1 complete!

    Yesterday left me feeling very tired, both physically and emotionally. Monday is one of the days when I have time set aside to run, though, so this morning I pushed myself to wake up early and go out for a tough run. I'm so glad I did. It was almost symbolic, in a way. If I can recover from the reset, not allow myself to suffer the consequences, but to muscle through and really exercise my willpower, I have what I need to beat this.

    Relapsed a few days back and haven't been able to maintain a streak since then. Although I did go to my pastor this past Saturday and thru confession basically brought up the struggle I've been dealing with. Its definitely a weight off your shoulders to share what you're going thru with someone else.

    I'm feeling the need to ramp things up in terms of my recovery process. I've struggled the past weeks getting a long streak. My longest one in recent memory was prob 23 days. I'm going to look into getting a therapist, who can hopefully share their perspective on how to improve.

    Has anyone been in SAA before? If you have would u mind sharing what the process looks like to join?

    Day 3
    I've relapsed a few days ago. I didn't watch p, but I masturbated. I had a terrible headache afterwards. I had to wait a couple of hours for the pain to pass.

    8 days. 2 days no Facebook. Was really grouchy last night. I am a bit this morning too but doing better. Can’t pinpoint what is causing it because I have made numerous changes in my life in the last week. I don’t think it’s the pmo streak. I am never grouchy at the point. I am thinking it is Facebook withdrawal. Tired of all the political talk at work and by my roomate. That’s enough to drive a guy mad. Seriously. Doing good with pmo. Was wanting to pmo to get rid of the craziness last night. I can’t do it. It won’t help it.

    Started listening to the Your Brain on Porn audio book last night. Just through the prologue. Talked about how our brain goes through physiological changes after we pmo. I don’t want that. Looking forward to hearing more of it.

    Each day gets little easier, as long as you allow a new possibility.

    yes, to random stimulation there´s nothing we can do. if we accidently stumble across sexy materials, it´s better to turn our face away and move on.

    but i´m talking about specific sites/programs etc, that we know it contains triggers. when we deliberatly choose to enter and stay in those places, we´re playing with fire, that´s why my recommendation is to simply don´t be there, and don´t accept any excuses to be there.

    yes, sexual thoughts are very dangerous, it´s always better to not feed them as they tend to increase arousal and hesitation. try to be aware of them bro, let them come and go in your mind. it´s not always easy but like you said, it´s a skill to master ;)

    well, if you think you need professional help, why not try the internet porn rebooter coaches? JK Emezi, Noah Church, Universal Man, Gold Jacket Luke... maybe they can help out.

    Hi guys,

    I had a bad relapse yesterday. Feels bad. I'm still kind of figuring it out. I am still determined to win. I can say more later.

    So, back to being a Day 0 orc for now.

    Day 6 - Uruk-Hai @RiseToGreatness

    By the time that I had time to post yesterday for day 5, I was at my no-screen time point in the day of 9:30pm so I did not post lest I violate my own goals. However, I am doing well, and ready for a new day. The last 5 days have been super productive, and I am excited for the next 5 days.
