    Day 3

    Guess who fell off the wagon again! I've been having some particularly down days recently, and have been feeling incredibly tired a lot of the time - while this hasn't been a direct result of PMO, it's certainly been a contributing factor.

    That being said, I was finally able to see my girlfriend on Monday (first time in 4 months), and she brought me out of my 'pit' and I feel so much better! I am excited to continue on my reboot journey, and I hope to stick to it this time.

    Day 7. I am a week clean for the first time in nearly a month. I feel great. My goals are being checked off one piece at a time and I am more than overjoyed. Now I know that I will have low days, so I have to stay wary of those days as I am more likely to use porn on those days. Additionally, if I do not remain prepared for life, then I will be triggered and relapse. I had a couple successes with fighting the urge yesterday. To preface, I have not been using YouTube for the last half a week (until yesterday) as it has a lot of triggering thumbnails for the "clickbait" and sometimes it can lead to me going down a rabbit hole of relapse. Since I have not been on YouTube, my days have been so much more productive as I am not wasting 4-7 hours of my day binging one video after another. Anyway, when I do use YouTube, I put a timer on it, so I am automatically kicked off after 60-70 minutes. With that said, I was on YouTube yesterday, and there were some triggering thumbnails, so I said "not interested" next to the video to remove it from my queue, and I did not come even close to relapse. I watched YouTube for an hour today watching Studio C medical sketches, but for the remainder of the week, I hope to not use YouTube at all.

    Best,

    Day 5,

    Maybe it is just me bouncing back from the recent reset, but I am moodier than a shipwrecked Tom Hanks who lost his volleyball.

    Best to you Fellowship!

    Fantastic, brother! I would urge you to focus, not on bigger urges (sure they do get bigger at times), but on developing yourself as a wholesome individual. There is plenty of ways to do this.

    Day 25
    I am spending the night at the old Watchtower of Amon Sûl ;) Truly PMO forces are lurking in the area because the urges are strong today! [​IMG]

    Wednesday

    Brain fog is rather bad today. I've had much trouble focusing. A lot of trouble with distraction. I am trying to dig deep. I am someone who can overcome adversity. Today I am trying to remember that and live it out.

    today I have: cold showered, prayed, meditated, eaten healthy, taken walks. I got up at 6:30, which may be part of my brain fog since I went to bed well after 11pm. But, the silver lining there is that I should be ready to hit the sack at a decent time tonight!

    Till next time, Fellows.

    Day 1 finished. Had 2 instances where I almost gave into the urges. Didn't fish though. Soon I'll be past this chaser!
     
  16. Day 3 complete!

    The day started off with a beautiful run. Exhausting and lengthy, but well worth it. From there it's been a whole lot of ups and downs. I don't want to go into details, but it's been an emotionally challenging day. The urges tried to take advantage of that. I didn't let them. PMO would have been the negative icing on the negative cake. There's no place in my life for those consequences.
