    Day 5 I think! things are not going in any direction... yesterday and today I mostly spent my time playing videogames, not a good thing, I know, but a little rest is needed from now and then. I have uninstalled the game and will use tomorrow to set some real goals that I want to get into. There is still some frustration in me as I have a lot of paperwork to fill, but I guess the lore I postpone it, the more I have.
    Any ideas for some challenges I can take for 30-60-90 days? (I can't do sports for 2 weeks though)

  5. Checking in as a Nazgul on Day 0. I fell twice in one day. This backsliding is getting worse and worse. I went out for a run later that evening, and as I was pushing through the midpoint, I kept reminding myself over and over in my mind that "I am not a quitter." It's gotten me through many tough runs before. I wanted to give up on the NoFap community and perhaps my entire effort to get clean, but...that's just not going to work. I won't quit trying to quit, haha.

    For a little more accountability I'm reposting from my journal my list of reasons not to PMO.
    --I pridefully reject God's Will and substitute my own.
    --I reject the gift of my body by using it for an unintended purpose.
    --I separate myself from God's grace.
    --I fall into despair, believing myself unworthy of God's love and grace.
    --I am unable to receive the Blessed Sacrament due to being in a state of mortal sin.
    --I struggle to discern God's Will for my life due to the cloud of sin in my life.
    --I contribute to an industry which categorically mistreats and abuses people.
    --I degrade my own human dignity by objectifying my body.
    --I degrade the human dignity of others, especially women in my case, by objectifying their bodies.
    --I struggle to have healthy, proper interactions and relationships with the women I know.
    --I am made a hypocrite by my actions.
    --I experience strong feelings of shame and guilt.
    --I lose the confidence and presence of mind to be a good leader.
    --I may scandalize others or set a poor example for them if they learn of my behaviors.
    --I lie to hide my behaviors.
    --I teach my brain to value sex above anything else.
    --I reinforce unhealthy habits and thought patterns in my brain.
    --I potentially injure my body, or inhibit its proper functioning.
    --I procrastinate more.
    --I have poorer concentration and thinking ability.
    --I struggle to focus on whatever task is at hand.
    --I have less energy and drive to accomplish necessary tasks.
    --I waste significant amounts of time.

    19 days. Push-ups in the morning and an hour of walking in the evening when it was cooler outside. Also got about 2-3 hours work done during the day. Pretty much no urges.

    How to have a total reset?

    I have been going in and out of nofap for a while now, not being able to make it past day 3 and even that was really hard.

    In the past I’ve made it to a week a couple of time and even two weeks now, but this month my best was just to push down the number of “sessions” and hours as low as I can.

    Have you ever experienced that? The need to restart the restart process?

    Do anybody now of like a step by step guide, because I have all the knowledge about nofap, but I’m just need to form a concrete plan of action and I feel stuck and really out of balance.

    Hey bro it looks like you are consistently missing on something. Do you do these everyday-Prayer,Meditation, sleeping well, Studying about rebooting as well as eating moderately and healthy?

    Big relapse today.
    I seem to feel less responsible for my actions after being PMO free for around 1.5 months. I also begin to fish more and that's always a bad sign.
    For me, the first couple of weeks after a relapse are always very easy, so I am now going to focus more on ways to stay strong when it starts to become more difficult.
    I have more spare time now, so I also have the ability to be more active on this forum again.

    Can you reset my rank @RiseToGreatness? Thank you.

    Never give up!

    Wow I remember how good I felt when I was 17 days streak . I am back again.
    Well guys, I tried several things but they werent so useful like I thought. U can try deleting ur internet, cpu usage and so on. But as long as u wont have the heart to do the nofap , no single tool gonna safe u. U always gonna find a way to do nothing and back to the bad habbits. That s of course my share. I tried [still using] cold turkey. U can do a lot with that but when the time comes and u wont have the will power to just move forward you will find a way to reboot anyway. So 3 days ago I started taking cold showers, beeing here always gave me lots of will power especially during come backs ;) Hope I gonna finnaly make my 30 streak again.

    Wish me Luck ;D
