    Day 2! Going good...even though, my energy is low and going back into productive habits is transitioning quite slow. As iI'm in a transition phase and can't quite seem to make a big self pump up! Let's see tomorrow!

    In just one hour, I will be 17 days clean from P and 12 days clean from MO. This morning was the latest I have gotten up in a few days at 9:45AM. I slept through my 8AM Spanish class which really sucked, and in the past I would have PMO'd to deal with the shame I felt from missing something I signed up for. Instead, I will use it as motivation to get up between 5-6:30AM so that I can start my day off right and not miss anymore appointments. I will be starting work at 8:30AM Monday through Thursday starting in a week and a half and I will work until 6pm Monday to Wednesday and 3pm Thursdays. That will not leave a ton of time for fun things, so I will need to get up early those days so that I have a time to shower, meditate, and hopefully work on my novel for two hours. That will also mean that Monday to Wednesday, if I go to sleep at 9pm, I will only have three hours to study for my proficiency exams, eat dinner, and decompress before I go to sleep. I will barely have any time in the day to do my goals, so I will have to make that time count. It will lead to little time for PMO or MO, however, that means that I have to be hyper cognizant during down times, as when I am stressed, I am more likely to PMO. I am really nervous about finishing studying for the proficiency exams, and though I know that I need to prioritize one of them over the other, if I can pass both, it will advance my career greatly this fall. After I post on the various challenges I am a part of on NoFap, I am going to sign off the computer for the night, work on some thank you notes, eat dinner and go to bed. Today is a bit of a wash, and I am not feeling well, so I am not going to press it, and instead I am going to just rest for the evening and be up before the sun tomorrow morning.

    Best,

    *some thoughts I just made about how I think if anybody is interested*

    This is the mind of a man who has done 20 years of semen retention

    The math
    : I started masturbation at 13 years old and at that age I did most of my fapping the first month on average 8 MO in a day the first 20 days that makes 160 orgasms, then I came back to my senses and started working out and I just stopped. All the others were usually after long streaks with no binging. I had in total 200 orgasms in my entire life and only 3 orgasms because of sex. In some days I’m going to be 33 y.o so that makes 20 years of semen retention if you add all up.

    The mind of a madman

    Since I was 10 y.o I always believed I was more than just a horny man, that I was something bigger and more profound than my body.

    Since that early age I strived to see what was beyond my body and my rational mind. I started to practice meditation and lucid dreaming, specially lucid dreaming I became obsessed with it, and it was not just a night practice it took over of my entire life I was constantly thinking how to lucid dream, in less than two weeks I had my first lucid dream it broke my concept of reality if you become really good at it you can even feel more than in real life, with a lot of clarity in the dream, you can transform yourself in 100 people at the same time, transform an ocean into fire, fight with dragons , go to space, anything you could imagine is possible. If you eat something it can taste like real food.

    Since kid sex for me did not exist, I never thought of it, just until I was 25 years old I decided to talk to girls and practiced non ejaculatory sex to break some rigid ideas in my head, but not out of pleasure, sex was a way for me a tool to transcend sex, to transcend lust using the same poison as the cure of your disease. That is tantra see everything as pure.

    If you have seen the movie inception, remember the wife of the main character she was an expert lucid dreamer but she got confused and at some point believed real life was a dream and jump out of a building and killed herself trying to fly.

    If you practice lucid dreaming long enough something like this happens but in a healthy way because the dream feels the same as real life so they are the same in terms of experience. One day I just made this click maybe 10 years ago and after that I never consciously practiced lucid dreaming anymore because my life became a lucid dream. Even do I always have lucid dreams I was born with the skill.

    Semen retention has been essential to this process because pleasure is one of the greatest veils of the mind and if you really want to go deeper into yourself you can’t be blinded by such a strong and basic impulse.

    Conclusion: master sex guys this will open your mind to infinite perceptions of reality.

  10. Day 5 complete!

    I've been sick all of last night and today, so my energy has been super low with nothing for urges or giving into them. That's what I thought, anyway, but I fell asleep in the afternoon and woke up to find a "nocturnal" emission. Still, I haven't PMOd as such and I'm feeling good about that.

    9 days. A total of an hour of walking + some body weight exercises at home. Tried to fit a breathing exercise into the schedule but ended up doing it on the bus and the on the subway which was not ideal lol. Henceforth, I'll try to do it right before sleep.
     
  13. Day 3. Doing ok, a lot of urges, but getting through it

    Nicely done on pulling it through with the problem at work! I feel the same when I don't sleep well, anxiety is raised a bit or a lot depending. Try to sit for an hour to meditate if you have a chance.

    Hey fellowship, checking in!

    212 days free of porn, 140 days free from MO.

    Still had the same issue as last night, I'm going through withdrawal from the fish oil I was taking. It's actually a thing...I'm regretting implementing that as a supplement to be honest. Half life is about 36-48 hours. I'm about basically around 36 hours free, few more days to go.
