    Spend this day productive.
    I want to exercise more, so I went for a walk today. Ended up walking for around an hour and a half. Longer than I expected.
    I don't want to start too intense though. I have had times before that I was very motivated to exercise, but because I hadn't exercised in such a long time, it took a lot out of me and I became less motivated afterwards. So I want to start slow for now, but also sign up for a gym membership in a couple of days and push myself.

    I'm thinking of buying the Your Brain on Porn book. Has anyone else read this book and would you recommend it?
    If you recommend other books that cover mental health/self improvement etc. feel free to let me know!

    Day 28

    Had a very, very close call just now. I don't know what I was thinking either. I was reading about Pokemon and then I was going to log off my laptop and go to bed when the thought "why don't you just take a peek. It cannot hurt." Obviously it can hurt and I did peek at images, but I stopped before too long and came on here instead. I am so close to elf, and I am happy to say that I came on here to report instead of going into the bathroom to PMO. It really crossed my mind to do that though. I thought, I already peeked, so why not look a while longer. And then the next thought would be, well I looked longer, so it is a relapse, therefore, might as well get off to it. And though it took a lot of will power, I did not look longer. And I did not PMO. I am shaking like crazy and have serious urges to go back on there, so I am going to post this, and then actually go to bed. Too dangerous and I violated my rule of no internet after 7/8pm (it is now 10:45PM). Anyway, I am staying accountable. If I peek again in the next few days, I will have to drastically re-evaluate my recovery, and whether I should reset. I am not going to reset now, for one because if I do in this state of vulnerability, I will not just peek again, I will binge. I do not want to binge, so I am going to go to bed and get up tomorrow in a new light.

    29 I feel like a boss

    Came so close to indulgence yesterday. Got up wrote down committment of 7 days of no sexual thoughts, fantasies, no voluntary arousal and of course pmo for next 7 days a piece of blank paper. Neatly tucked in my wallet now.
    Managed to overcome the intense arousal. Got out my room, had the usual, girls check me out, respect from people I met, and all that.
    Now back to my path and purpose. Awesome!

    Checking in on day 1. So far my libido is still low so the struggle is not very hard but I know what's coming and I'm trying to build healthy habbits like doing sports daily and meditating.

    You've done a good progress, just don't go binging and try to go to bed before 10 pm. Obviously you are quite serious about your health and about quitting PMO for the better results you've got to get quite 'addicted' to this site and to studying rebooting, because your presence here as well as your time spend studying rebooting are directly proportionate to the length of your clean streaks, so instead of reading about pokemons and similar subjects concentrate on living around here as well as implementing healthy habits in your lifestyle( the more the better). Do this for 2 months to beat your current streak record and take a picture of yourself now to compare it with how you going to be looking 60 days down the timeline !;)
