Thanks for sharing how pride has affected you @Slider8 . I understand that splitting the counter could be seen as not being honest, but as per my previous post you will just have to give those of us, who set our counter this way, the benefit of the doubt when it comes to our intentions.
This forum, for me, is a refuge to come to for help and encouragement. At the end of the day, we are here because we need each other. The shared experience helps us grow in self awareness which is essential for our recovery. It gives us a space to be honest about ourselves, rather than being image projectors, and Pride is the greatest image projector of all.
I would add to your post that Pride is fundamentally attachment to a false or exaggerated image of oneself, as clever, stylish, intelligent, perceptive, attractive or whatever... It includes many aspects such as envy, boasting, vanity, arrogance, hypocrisy, self-destructive habits, etc.... It sells itself as a protector of our vulnerabilities, when all the while it is preventing us from connecting to these vulnerabilities and our true selves. Pride does not like places where we are invited to be honest about ourselves, preferring instead to point out the faults of others, judging or criticising what they are doing. Pride does not like connection, but without connection, there is no recovery. Hence Pride is our greatest obstacle to connecting to ourselves, connecting to others, destroying the ring, and achieving everlasting freedom.
I say this because I have battled with my pride all my life, and it is the most sneaky of all enemies, hiding in plain sight in our own minds.
Really good it is to chat about this, because it is not really discussed anywhere else, and I do agree that it is a key part of keeping the lust addictions alive, so we'll work together and ultimately prevail against this enemy!
Day 102 of No PMO
Day 4. Looking forward and trying to use that energy on productive stuff like my studies my work etc. Instead of PMO and all his fake illusions
Day 2 complete!
@Mathman1994 RiseToGreatness said it best and I'm not sure there's anything to add, so I'll just leave my two cents that I agree with him. As someone who tanked a relationship once by being too lustful and self-centered...it doesn't work the way you think it will. Just don't do it! We don't call ourselves SometimesFap.
Day 60 check-in (Attempt 4) - Kingdom of the Silvan Elves, Lothlórien.
Yes brother , that's why I put No P in the counter . I REALLY DON'T WANT P . In my experience I found out that I usually do P because the urges is hard. As the P is addictive my thoughts and thinking start to change . In P they see women as a object , like a toy to please men . they take out the feelings and human nature out of it (you know what I'm talking about) . Well, people start softcore and then they find themselves in extreme filthy side . So , just giving out that habit will be huge accomplishment to me. I know mastrubation is also addictive and bad. I'm hoping after I'm free of P, I can stop M also. Don't get me wrong ! I'm not using a excuse to do M , I will fight with all my strength to gain control of myself. I plan to use M as a last resort to avoid P . I don't know if my plan is correct but so far it seems to working and I will update the status here. Also the thing about recovery is every person is different and one method may work for a person but it doesn't have to work for the other person, Everyone is different.
Check in 7 days of NO PMO
No P : 21 days
Day 95. Headed to Florida today with the fam. Sometimes long boring car rides get my brain thinking of P so wish me luck. I have lapsed after a long car ride before.

Starting day 3. Wim hof done, exercise... done. Have a nice day
Morning run,workout and a bunch of cold showers.Brain fog is slowly decreasing and i had almost no urges today.Not letting my guard down tho!This false sence of security has led me to many relapses before...
Best of luck brothers!
Thanks. Will do.
