    ...I know the feeling of that relief and it's no good. It sounds like a relief from commitment to keep yourself in light and on straight and narrow, which unfortunately 99.99 % of the time throws us into darkness of self-harm and indulgence in all the dark stuff it has kept us from. The thing that you relapsed only shows that you have set your life in the way that would earlier or later lead to relapse. We all have to restructure ant reorganize our life and activities in order to keep going strong and you should do the same, cos everyone can do this challenge if we but put our will to set our day to day life, thinking and activities in a relapseproof way.
    I urge you to reconsider and start with the end in mind.

    2 days. Feeling good about that.

    Prayer - Prayed my Rosary last night.

    Abstinence - Have not eaten since last coffee yesterday.

    Rest - Learning about golfing. Went to bed at 9:15. 7 and a half hours of sleep. 10 days into my shift. Tired.

    Exercise - got out for a 5 minute walk this morning. Does not sound like much but it took everything out of me to get out the door.

    Nutrition - Ate healthy yesterday.

    Temptations - Some temptations yesterday evening. I am really tired I guess. I always start getting really tired around this time in the shift. 3 and a half days to go. Maybe I can have some sober time before me for days off. It would be nice to have some of the benefits for days off.

    I will get through this one day at a time.

    Checking in Day 128 free from MO. Day 200 free from Porn.

    Feeling a bit better than yesterday, but still going through a resurface of tension and anxiety, low stress tolerance and weakness/fatigue. I'm going to up my meditation to 30 mins first thing in the morning and 30 mins at night. Currently i've been doing 10 mins in the morning, 20 after breakfast and 10 mins after lunch.

    Hi @RiseToGreatness , before you leave us would it be possible to help me understand some things?
    Why do you set the semen retention goal?
    Could this be a cause of relapses more so than the counter is?
    I am not in a relationship so I understand the pressure that rises physically and psychologically when there is no O. So I'd like to understand why people who are in intimate relationships deny themselves O's, especially if this ultimately leads to relapsing with P? I appreciate this is just my ignorance because clearly lots of people on this site are in intimate relationships and still deny themselves intimate connections with their partners that end in O, and ultimately end up relapsing to P ( which is understandable considering the pressure they are putting themselves under).
    So I suppose I am just curious of what is the dynamic in relationships that leads someone to deny themselves O with their partner, only to end up relapsing to P?

    p.s. as I said before I'd love to be in an intimate relationship and believe that will ultimately be the key to healing my intimacy disorder (once I learn to have a healthy connection with myself)

    Day 173. Definitely feeling the urges and have been having difficulty with temptations. I am trying to push through this rough patch. I need to take @RiseToGreatness advice and be more involved in NoFap
