    Day 16 in progress, I am a Hobbit again!
    Can you change my rank @RiseToGreatness? Thank you!
    I have noticed that I feel very grubby (I don't know if this is the right word), when I don't shave on time.
    I wanted to shave a couple days ago, but I couldn't find the time and now I don't feel very positive/clean/comfortable.
    How do others feel about this?
    I am going to shave today and hope it makes me feel a bit better.

    Aside from the above, I feel very good!
    Have a great day everyone! Much love!

    Day 153. Still feeling urges but pushing through. I definitely have made a lot of progress with handling my urges constructively.

    Fell again last night. Might be falling with porn but I am golfing or practicing my singing every night. Doing my dishes daily. Doing my fasting. God will lift this from me one day. One day I will be graced with the strength to overcome this. Need to persevere in building good habits. Maybe God needs to see I am serious about bettering myself before He graces me with sobriety. I will get through this one day at a time.

    Day 12

    Failed

    Started with some fantasies, cravings got bigger and bigger and I managed somehow to turn on my computer in emergency mode so I gained website internet. Then it was supereasy to fail my streak ;P
    However gonna start again pretty soon. Today for sure. Just need to create much stronger plan so I go more deep. I guess I gonna throw out video games completely and limit movie usage to 3 hours per day to force me to do more things without using computer ;)

    Day 18, Last night I had a big urge, but then I watched a video about nofap and the urges and then I talked to someone by the phone and that really helped me to overcome it , so another day made by little decisions on the way to make the big decision to regain my freedom far from PMO. God Bless You All Brothers and Sisters

    I wanted to masturbate this morning, and I still feel the chaser effect and want to think it would be okay after sex last night. It would not. I looked at reasons I had listed not to in my handwritten journal. I am going to go do something for the house, like mopping the sewage residue off the basement floor. That should make me feel less romantic with myself. Haha

    I will try to stop using CPU/Phone during morning till afternoon. So basically I gonna try to force myself to either be really productive or just go outside. I think that should really change the situation of cravings. I do remember like I used to spent half day outside : there was no single cravings. And I gonna delete myself from movies/games for 30 days I think straight. Let's keep moving forward ;)

    exactly bro. your signature says it all:

    "Fishing becomes P, P becomes M , M becomes relapse".

    Just mentalize that fishing will lead to a pmo session, always. the only uncertainty is the time gap. so if you can shortcut that time gap and visualize the relapse happening, you can cut the spell right in the beginning. so, whenever you detect that you´re trying to stumble on something arousing, snap out of it, fast ;)

    yeah, i totally can relate. personal care is super important on the reboot process (in fact in all life). whenever i slack some personal hygiene, or get sloppy in my dressing, i feel much worst and weak, and much more vulnerable to urges and porn thoughts.

    self-care bro. that´s where much of the recovery is based upon ;)

    Lot´s of struggles among the Fellowship today, too many to quote by name. So i clicked the panic button to give a help, and here´s what pop up. I hope it helps :)

    Checking out dear Fellowship!! :) Here´s JK Emezi with some good morning advices. Have a good day!!!


    "Hey, it's J.K here again. :)

    I know that everyone LOVES a good life hack, right? Today, I'm going to be sharing some hacks to help you start your morning without getting overwhelmed by emotions which lead to slips!

    The way you start your morning has an impact on the rest of your day- if fact, it can be the deciding factor with whether you slip or relapse that day or not.

    They will make your reboot journey so much easier. :)

    Here they are!

    1. Control the first 60 Seconds of your day

    • You can do this by first issuing a “challenge” to your addict “Come get me!”. Of course, it immediately comes for your by suggesting your hit the “snooze” button.
    • Next, take 5 slow, controlled deep breaths into your belly- go beyond your lungs.
    • Perform 10 kegel exercises while laying down.
    • Express Gratitude that you work up alive this morning. I usually verbally say “I am thankful to have another day on this planet”. FEEL the gratitude- many went to bed just like you did last night- and did not wake up.

    2. Shock Your Metabolism
    • Drink 30 ounces or 4 glasses of water. Yes. 4 glasses of water.
    • If you sleep between 6 and 9 hours, your body and brain are dehydrated. Your brain alone is 75% water!
    • To avoid feeling sluggish, foggy, numb and weak, you must rehydrate. This will get your metabolism started.
    • Splash some cold water on your face before you sit on the toilet.

    3. Control Your Mind
    • For the first hour of the morning, you should only use your phone for three things: To check the time, amount of sleep you got (if you use an app) and listening to positive material. While using the toilet/brushing your teeth, listen to something uplifting. I record all my goals using the voice recorder on my phone and listen to them while using the bathroom. It prevents be from checking messages or using social media.
    • After using the bathroom, meditate for 10- 2- minutes, visualize your ideal day, write out your recovery goals and read one chapter from a recovery book
    • Stretch, run, or engage in whatever exercise works best to get your heart rate up.Ideally, a great morning routine should take 90 minutes. Not enough time?
    Skip that extra episode of your show from the night before or wake up an hour later. It won’t kill you to catch a nap later in the day.

    Alright, these #morningroutine hacks will completely change the way you experience your day. You’ll start off in a great mood, and be in full control of your mindset and body.

    This isn’t our full morning routine, but these little hacks will go a long way

    I hope that you've found this email to be useful. Do feel free to hit REPLY if you have any thoughts about these hacks that you want to share with me.

    See you in my next email!

    Your brother in this struggle,

    J.K Emezi"

    Checking in. Second vaccine shot Friday completely wrecked me all weekend but I’m happy to report no real urges, and my streak continues. Solid night of sleep and starting the day strong with exercise and lots of QT with my son. It’s a busy work week so my mantra is Focus. Be well everyone.
