    Nice man! I think i'm also due for a refresher, I've been complacent for the last 2 weeks in that regard. Thank you for your post.

    Checking in fellowship,

    MO free 139 days, porn free 211 days.

    Waking up around 1 am twice now this week, feeling extremely hot and my stomach going wild. (nausea stomach pain and bloated) ..The first time that heat lead me to some anxiety because PAWS emotions are on steroids but this time I stayed calm with the discomfort and meditated a bit. Interesting enough, I had some urges show up because of it, although I didn't pay any attention to it.(The urge was not for porn, mostly for MO or edging)

    I'm starting to suspect the fish oil I've been taking. I'm going to lay off it for a while. This has happened in the past and when I stopped taking it, I felt better after a few days.

    I had started taking it because I read a study with people who went through alcohol withdrawal, specifically those who took omega 3 fish oil had reduced stress/anxiety symptoms in comparison to those who were taking a placebo. It did work in terms of stress/anxiety at first, but once your gut gets irritated by it..well I think it screws with the serotonin production and your anxiety and stress bounce back a bit. If any of you decide to go that road, be cautious.

    Day 2
    I am starting to feel a lot better. Yesterday was a good day filled with good things. @modern milarepa I think the post about relaxing was a great post with great information. So many times I let p get wrapped up in my head and I think about all the negative effects it has on me. In turn it stresses me out and honestly pushes me more towards it. Just relax and move forward. Sexual urges are a natural and good thing.

    Day 0

    Hey guys. I failed last night, as sleep dissolved and temptation set in. Pretty bad relapse, I am ashamed but really more just sad. I'd been warding off temptations yesterday and the day before, but then just collapsed.

    A couple things I've (re)learned: Days 14-30 have become a real danger zone for cravings; being around people and being social really helps my general attitude and outlook.

    So, the orcs nabbed me outside Hobbiton, and re-orced me. But I'm on the trail again.
     
  5. To my knowledge there is very little science to read up on. You'll find plenty of blogs and vlogs and discussion threads if you google but it's almost entirely anecdotal. At least that's my experience.
    Having said that, the sheer number of people on these forums, including myself, that have sovled problems in the bedroom through abstinence is a good source.
    Maybe read through success stories on the forums, or have you already done that?
    Again, they are anecdotal though.
    If you find anything scientific i am interested too.

    Checking in. Made it through the tough, sleep deprived day yesterday, got a solid 8 hours last night and hit the ground running on wake-up. Studied Chinese, worked out, did my breathwork and meditation. Heading out for a quick bike ride now before work. Be well everyone!

    well, you can follow on youtube donta young and gold jacket lucke, they are both big advocates of semen retention. also, the famous book of napoleon hill "think and grow rich" has a whole chapter on the benefits of semen retention (sexual transmutation) ;)

    Checking in Fellowship :)

    Still feeling tired and heavely foggy. Bad sleep last night so i drink some tea to calm my anxiety today, as i tend to get nervous when my sleep is poor.

    A big problem in work today, which i thought could result in a dramatic outcome, but I myself, tired, weak and foggy as hell, could pull it through :)

    Other than that, i will drink more tea tonight, and make proper arranjements for good sleep :)

    Have a good day my brothers and sisters :) Love you all :)

    Day 35 monk mode.

    You enter the cold Misty Mountains, the Hithaeglir.

    Sometimes extreme measures are needed to control sexual compulsiveness. Chastity belt, crotch-blinder, Pavlovian technique - all amazing ideas. ;) :D :D



    Rule number 1. Of course, no pornography, no masturbation, no orgasm. Check.
    Rule number 2. No searching for sexually stimulating material, guarding my look in the street, on TV, on internet, etc. Check.
    Rule number 3. Daily prayer. Check.
    Rule number 4. Following my day schedule. This includes going to sleep and waking up on time, starting and finishing work on time. Average.
    Rule number 5. At least one hour a day of activities not related to work, this site or empty internet browsing. Check.
    Rule number 6. Daily journaling. Here or personally. Check.
    Rule number 7. Memory practise. I will relate it to my studies, so that I would save time. Check.

    It is a reset, when any of first three rules is breached. I should follow others as much as possible.

    Do you want to know what really happened? You have chosen to think and believe that you are alone and separate, that's where you allowed yourself into temptetion. The truth is we are never alone unless we have chosen to believe in this lie...and we have everything we need at every single moment of our day, to live our dreams we have just to believe it then there is nothing to it ;)

    This attitude really not helpful and is a hallmark of addictive people. You might work to change it into something positive and be happy with what you got.

    ...and I might work on it, and we all might work on it for there is a reason we are here.;) It's like for example 'all' would be to eat yourself super full whilst 'nothing' would be to starve yourself, both are not healthy for us. Moderation in everything is the harmonious way.:)

    No they don't really work tried these stuff before only to dive headfirst into SM latter, so that instead of only dopamine from lust you gonna get endorphins from pain and get even stronger addiction. These are all silly 'trojan horses' which gonna make you to want to see if they really work ontly to fall into temptation. Please brothers don't even think of trying that s**t, I paid for it by relapsing multiple times with using them ,save yourself by avoiding my mistake.

    I am not sure if you are joking or did you really try chastity belt and other stuff. Because you sound serious.

    I imagine myself going through the streets with the crotch-blinder. That would be something to remember and tell future grandchildren about real dedication to my goals. :D

    I think you haven't yet understood what lust is and how it takes hold on you.
    ...and I did what I did, but you have set a trap for brothers with your post which you wouldn't have done if tried it firsthand and looks like you having fun which really indicate a reckless -'don't give a damn' attitude towards your own actions.
