  2. Day 1 complete!

    @Slider8 Studying about rebooting is not something I do consistently. Any tips on where to begin? By the way, I really appreciate how you're always around to respond to our posts and give advice. Your efforts go a long way towards holding this Fellowship together; thank you!

    Okay! I’m back on track. Day One!

    There are so many things in my life that I can’t control and are stressing me out, but porn is not one of them. And so, I’m going to give everything I can to change the things that I do control and become a hobbit for the first time in my life.

    Lest night I went to bed at 22:30 and slept almost 8 hours. I woke up and meditated and had a big breakfast and I’m still super stressed out about everything else in my life, but at least I’m not hangry or sleepy right now.

    I’m going to focus on being accountable both here and to my AP everyday first thing after I get on the computer.

    Thank you all for forming the wonderful community and have a great day.

    20 days. Spent pretty much the whole day with friends. Played football/soccer + push-ups in the morning, played music in the afternoon, and went swimming at the beach in the evening. It's pretty much impossible to relapse when you're with your friends all the time so all is good. The beach offered some temptations though, kind of hard to guard your look everywhere but it didn't yield any urges :)

    Ye its gr8 phrase but usually we forget why we did this in the first place and how far we are already :p
    Key is to remember. This is probably why ppl recommend to ask yourself question why u did this etc So we remember ;)

    Here is a good tip- Every day come here(I mean NoFap site as a whole including this challenge ;)) and look for a new success story or complain of brothers. Choose at least one and study it, file it for future reference. Pay special attention to the health and psychological problems brothers run into and how they overcome and recovered from them. Do at least one of this cases a day to form your own solid opinion(practical evidence based) and experience. Maybe start with those cases which are closer to your own situation in life and expand it from there.
    ...and you are very welcome! I think it's rather natural thing to try and help your brothers, this way you become the part of the whole instead of separate lonely egoistic cell...:)

    To the brothers and sisters who just check in ;).
    Here some thoughts I want to share with you. By simply, rather robotically checking in you denying yourself full benefits of being members of this fellowship. How? By staying closed, by not sharing your journey, your successes and your failures in a parallel to this challenge real world, not sharing how you feel etc. By denying yourself full value of communication with like minded brethren you stay rather separate and unable to get a good advice and experience of the fellowship on your encountered problems as well as denying brotherhood the joy of your successes and learning from your mistakes. Brothers and sisters please, be more active and sharing members of this fellowship, share more , express your feelings more....all this for you own benefits and well-being in the first place! :)

    Day 7! Tomorrow they remove the tube from inside me so I am curious about how my body will feel, but until then, I am getting back into writing slowly, slower than expected, yet I choose to try every day, even a little bit as I am going on some detox of useless things.
    I chose to do meditation right as I was writing these lines, and I chose to enact the thought immediately without getting distracted and now I can say that my daily meditation has been applied one again.

    Sounds like you need to incorporate some moving into the morning to remove the physical stress from the muscles and excess energy. My plan for myself is to incorporate 10 minutes of running in the morning, however, since I am still in recovery, I'm doing 20+ push-ups just to get the day going.

    Day 6, going on 7

    I've been kind of a lazy piece of crap today. I've prayed a little and exercised, but haven't meditated or done any real work. That doesn't mean I won't, but I really should have by now.

    I feel kind of even today, a little low but not really depressed. Social interactions are a little rough, but getting better. I used to feel so confident socializing, it's weird to backslide in that regard (in comparison to how confident I felt in interpersonal interactions a couple years ago when my PMO abstention was at its height). To me, it's a testimony to how nasty PMO is, how insidious its side-effects really are.

    No self-pity, though! Time to move forward.

    Today I am grateful for family.
