    I'm back home now from the countryside, and I haven't been able to log in here to check in. Sorry about that, should have prepared everything with passwords on the phone, etc. before going.

    Anyways, I'm on 26 days now. I have been with my friends everyday, from the moment I woke up in the morning to the moment I fell asleep during the night, which have made it impossible to relapse. Not the most healthy living the past days though, I have slept way too little, not exercised, eating unhealthy food, and drinking alcohol everyday. But now when I'm home I can get back on track living life normally again ;)

    Not too bad ,the weather of monotonous cloudy-rainy sky with no wind caused my brain to go into a lethargic state where i just couldn't make myself do something useful mentally, so I had about 2 hours of PT instead and now head cleared quite significantly. Felt some silly cold symptoms through the day but after workout and cold shower they are all gone :). I go now and eat
    ;)

    Wow such a big sacrifice for the sake of keeping your friends.;)
    But you are not a stranger to JOMO, are you?
    JOMO is an acronym standing for the expression joy of missing out, and it simply refers to the gratifying feeling you get when you break away from the (real or virtual) activities of your social group and spend time doing exactly what you most want to do

    End of day 3. Was definitely harder than the first 2 days. Started having thoughs questioning why I'm doing it. Thinking it's not healthy tongo a long period of time without O. Was able to keep myself in check though.

    Actually it's wrong if you enjoy looking at it and get the feeling of excitement while doing so. The best thing to do is to close that book and do not open it again. To find out the view of bible on looking on nakedness and what kind of punishments were prescribed for doing it read the third book of Moses.
    And just have a look to what length your brain went to tempt you by sticking that image in front of your eyes through the pages of a book about music! ;)

    Day 1 - Orc

    Here again for the next week, and I intend to advance to Urak-Hai again before long. I was up all night until 6:30AM as I was unable to fill my night meds last night, so I did not take them. They will be filled tonight. I slept until 11:30AM so about 5 hours of sleep total. It was a restless sleep, but I find that I sleep better with the light of day than the dark of night. Not sure why. I never considered myself to be afraid of the dark, and yet, when I have insomnia from missing my meds, I am absolutely terrified. I did break my promise to myself about no media after 7PM. In fact I was on Youtube from about 1AM to 6:15AM trying to distract from the terror of the dark. Not healthy by any means and kind of risky, especially since I saw triggering stuff. Learned about some German military tech though, as for a brief moment of deliriousness, I went to search this one gamer woman, who is attractive, mistyped her name and learned about the German military. A blessing to say the least. I did not do more searching after that. Heck, I do not even recall all that I searched and watched. A lot of comedy videos and social critique videos. Not the sort I have found triggering in the past. Still very risky, and I intend to hold to my "no devices rule" after 7PM from this day forward. That means no email, no social media, no games, or anything of that sort. Just me and some quiet time with a gratitude journal and a book.

    Tomorrow is a new day when I rise and start another week of work.

    Best,

    Checking in. A good day getting things done and seeing some friends at a kid’s birthday party. Always love watching my son play among other kids. A busy week ahead prepping for a long trip while also working and solo-dad in 100+ degree heat, but I got this. Be well everyone!

    Day 5

    Things are hard but getting better. Holy cow I want to be clean of porn.

    Lately other than the usual stuff on nofap like this thread and talking to an AP I started writing on the subforum for “rebooting in a relationship” where there are many women that are SO to people going through noFap. And writing there is so hard.

    Talking and hearing the women perspective both as SO and just as women is truly shocking. But if someone is in a relationship and feel strong enough, I really encourage going there, it’s an eye opener.

    But understanding the harm porn and the sexual pressure I’ve put on my girlfriend as result of the porn addiction kind of making me sick and ashamed of myself. But I’m just really trying to focus on channeling this energy into bettering my self and not just spiraling into a porn and shame cycle.


    if it make you feel better, I think you're a rock star for making it to 20 days. I'm still trying to get to 14 days for the first time. but I'm not giving up.:)

    To me this is the opposite of a relapse. Sounds like you handled it well.

    Day 126 no PMO - went on a date with my wife tonight. Had some good conversation. Didn’t try anything sexual for fear that I would not be able to perform. I’m worried that I have wrecked my sex life forever.
