    good plan bro :). Now you got to follow it, and that´s usually the "not so easy part" :D. But i´m sure with dedication you can pull it through. Also plans need to be happy and easy going, if you find that you´re struggling or life becomes grey, then it´s better to update your plan. in fact it´s good to revise it from time to time :)

    i recommend you do it daily. that will boost your motivation and your knowledge on the path. although it´s not good or recommended that you struggle over it. take it lightly, maybe read/watch rebooting material a bit every day. that´s good and enough ;)

    thanks for the insight bro. I left some non active members there, especially in the higher categories, because they log from time to time. although long absences are interpreted as "missing in action", so i delete their names from the challenge.

    still, i´m gonna be more attentive on the revision of the list. we can´t have ghosts or double names :D. Thanks

    Day 14

    Two weeks of sobriety from PMO, hell yeah!

    Let's keep it up, gang! We can all do this.

    I'm super busy, so I won't go into detail, but I am keeping with my daily routine. I got a lot of writing done today! I'm about to pray, take a brief walk, and get lunch.

    another lazy day although done meditation, run for 2 hours,and worked out in the gym for half an hour. The negative thing is I have eaten too much in the evening and feel some discomfort in the stomach :(. Guess it one of the ways brain is substituting to get dopamine flood .

    Hi There!

    Almost two weeks clean, feeling awsome, studying a lot and having no hard time on focusing. Also, the urges are growing, but it's still under control, and here is why:


    NSFW ALLERT!!!

    I'd like to share something that has been hugely important in controling my urges. I'm abstaining from working out.
    Yeah, I know it sound crazy, but after noticing a pattern of relapses a few hours after training I started to connect the dots and I ended up creating this theory, based on what I know of hormonal responses of our bodies: when we workout, we stress our orgasim, which prepares itself to metabolize our recovery. This includes processing proteins, to rebuild muscles, fat, to keep you energized in the case you don't eat carbs aftar training, and liberating cortisol and testosterone in your bloodstream. Those two hormones work against each other, but cortisol, once it starts the inflammatory process, stops being liberated, letting all the testo "alone" in your blood, which is full of it. And you guys know its powers. This testo keeps circulating for a few hours and ends up stimulating the horniness in our big fella, getting him desparate for some action. And it's in this moment that the urges are the hugest.

    Knowing all of this, I decided to quit working out for a certain period of time, since it seems that my body has strong reactions after training, at the point I could get sponteanous boners even when focusing on my studies with the mindfulness at its best, but, once I quited, those events got less and less frequent. Yet, here goes an important disclaimer: I used to train a lot and very intensely, my body is kinda addicted to it, so it also comes with some side effects. My energy levels dropped and my sleep quality also dropped, be aware of it. Me myself found it a small price to pay, since I don't plan to take this for more than a month, and I also would like to emphasize that every body is unique, so this might not work for you. My urges got weaker and easir to overcome! I'm only sharing what I've learned (and I'm still learning, since there's a lot a don't know about it) and I hope it might help you guys. Last point: if you're gonna try it, make sure to eat and sleep well, meditade, walk and do some stretching exercises to keep your muscles a little active.

    That was it! I Wish you well, fellow brothers!

    Yeah it is so true-it's never a solution. Solution is always in the mind but due to emotional and physical lows we often are too lazy and procrastinating to follow it. Maybe the best way to live out your solution is to stop worrying and take a good care of your health.
