    hi bro :)

    well, basically because when i do sex i experience withdrawal symphoms, not as bad as a pmo session though, but mildy bad. so when i do hard mode the reboot is way better and smoother.

    other reason, probably the biggest one, is i want to experience sexual emancipation. this a major threshold for me, and this is why i recommend it to everyone.

    in my opinion, and other opinions that i study on the matter, it´s important to one to totally abstain for a while in order to achieve mastery over sexual desire. this is important because we can´t have sex all the time (if we´re single, sick, etc...), so we must develop the ability to be chaste, accept it (if it´s the present situation), and transmute the sexual energy into productivity.

    yes, semen retention is a bit harder than nofap, especially the sense that we are missing out. so for this new attempt i´m gonna set my mind better for the goal.

    thanks my brother :)

    Checking in Fellowship :)

    Well, in a turn of events, like i always do :D, i decided to stay. not in the same way though, i will definitely not return to the challenge because i will not reactivate the counter, but i will stay accountable with you my brothers and sisters :)

    Plus, someone needs to manage the challenge board, and it needs to be me ;). But i will be just a guy checking in, no time references whatsover.

    Well, good day today, although the usual withdrawal symphoms appeared (anxiety, fatigue, a bit of paranoia). sleep was good though, as i could find a proper replacement for coffee in the morning. for the taste i replace it with decaffeinated, and for the boost, i mix ginger with cinnanon. works like charm! it gives a boost but it doesn´t give agitation like coffee does and it doesn´t interfere with my sleep either :)

    have a great day Fellowship!!! :) Checking out.

    Yeeeees! My counter has finally refreshed after all this time and effort. Who thought that a little more effort and intention than usual would lead to some results right?

    Resetting counter
    Still no P but was fishing on escort sites leading to MO, so have decided to reset after 6.5 months (196 days) - It is so clear how ugly lust is again now - why is this not always the case? Will post a full crash analysis, and renewal of decisions to stop each end every one of my bad habits, in coming days.

Their hearts were of granite and their bodies deformed; foul their faces which smiled not, but their laugh that of the clash of metal, and to nothing were they more fain than to aid in the basest of the purposes of Melkor."

    Day 6

    Uruk-Hai, ride or die!

    It's been a good weekend so far and I am trying to once again rebuild my old, good habits and patterns of thought that helped me become free from porn four years ago.

    Brain fog is still a problem, though it's improving. I find my biggest foe right now to be procrastination. Anyone have any good advice for overcoming procrastination?

    Struggling with procrastination all my life
    These are the things that seem to work best for me
    • 1. Start the day with a task, before you do anything else, even before you think about what you are doing for the day, do a task - this puts you in a doing mindset from the off
    • 2. Start an hour earlier ( which usually means going to bed earlier )
    • 3. Before the day ends, list what you are going to do the next day so you can start the day with a clear roadmap
    • 4. Live by the phrase "Just Do It" - especially when in doubt or pontificating - Just Do It - (get a Nike poster for your wall with this slogan and it will help kick you out of the stupor of procrastination when you are stuck)
    • 5. Recommend the book "Doing It Now" by edwin c bliss (it's an old one but it hits the nail on the head and is a gripping and easy read)
    I will travel with you if you want on this one, as I need to keep up these steps also. Just let me know.

    Been 1 year since I quit this challenge, I am heavy in porn again, heavy on shemale escorts, heavy on anal playing with myself.

    I am starting this challenge, with 0 motivation, it’s like the addiction took over me, I am somewhat hopeless.

    I always go back to the same story, what should I do to quit this ?

    day 1 starting 20:19 Mexico time.

  13. Day 5 complete!

    With every passing day the urges are getting stronger. I'm going through one right now even as I type this out, but it won't get the best of me. Giving up is not an option. I'm rewatching Attack on Titan and one of the recurring themes is that if we want to live, we have to fight. With PMO in my life I cannot truly live, so fight I must.

    Haven't checked in for a while, but I am going strong. I am on the right path again!
    Urges are becoming stronger so I have to be careful. A relapse always happens faster than you think.

    @RiseToGreatness, can you update my rank to Elf? Thanks in advance.

    Have a great day everybody!

    Day 98. I have a Five Minute Journal that I do every morning first thing and every evening before bed. It helps me stay focused on the positives in my life. I am out of town right now and out of my routine and I haven’t done my journal in two days. I will commit to doing it again tonight to get back on track. There is a huge correlation between not doing my journal and a relapse.
