    Been 1 year since I quit this challenge, I am heavy in porn again, heavy on transwoman 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.

  4. 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.

    Day 7
    Very intense start of the day.Had an exam in the morning that didnt go particularly well.I am feeling very stressed out rn and thoughts of "calming" myself with PMO are arising.Managed to resist them by going outside but it will start raining soon...The day will be tough but i am not giving up that easy!I am ready for a fight!

    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.

    Fished and MO'd after strong chaser today - I am ready to embark on the journey now:
    Commit to surfing the chaser effects this coming 4 days
    Commit to getting to Uruk Hai
    Commit to surviving the weekend and avoiding friends who trigger me
    Commit to getting to Hobbit and to breath the free air
    Commit to doing 90 days detox, as in zero content/ media books, magazines, newspapers, online, tv or movies, nipping all thoughts in the bud and hitting them with BRACE to reactivate my brain
    Commit to ending all lust completely at day 91
    Commit to becoming a White Wizard

    If the urges mess up my head though, or push me to do reckless things that could damage my job or relationships, I will MO before it goes too far. However, on the last good stretch from beg Nov to end of March (5 months) I did not need to do this until I took my eye off the ball.

    Commit to keeping my eye on the ball constantly from now on

    Maybe the key is in the low sugar and low movies diet and starting slow with just one important task for a day.
    ..and our brother had a very good advice which I quite often failed to execute:
    I think it's a good idea to start from just one task on this list too.

    Brother how about other commits? :
    -1)prayers every day and remember to include being lust-free.
    -2)meditation everyday
    -3)cold shower everyday
    -4)study about rebooting every day
    -5)set yourself a life-changing goal for the next 500 days (so that the time of its achievement would coincide with becoming a White wizard) and everyday work on its achievement.
    -6)accountability here on everyday commits
    as for the ending lust completely it takes what it takes to stop seeing yourself as a male and women as women.
    Can you see yourself as a spirit in a males body from any perspective?
    ...I think that if you manage to keep these 6 little commits every day you will quite effortlessly be able to take care of your 8 commits above.:)
    ...and don't go too hard on yourself ask for forgiveness,repent and believe you are forgiven...think of yourself as of white wizard already- to set a compass in your mind.

    focus brother, prioritize the reboot above all things. in fact, if you do that, all the other things will fall into place.

    Commit, 100%. 99% is not enough.

    cold showers, take them daily. they will also improve your mood dramatically.

    stay away from all kinds of eletronic devices, only use them with people around you. do other stuff, engage in other kinds of hobbies. even in lockdown we can do millions of things. we just need to brainstorm them, because quite often we´re used to empty dopamine draining activities.

    plan your day. ask yourself "how could tomorrow be a great day?", then brainstorm the answers, write them down and follow through ;)
