    That was a fun ride. Now I’m back to 0

    Woke up and exercised and went out to study in a public place and I felt like shit and my brain was just not working. So I came back home to an empty house and thought to myself, I’m a hobbit on day 19, I would never relapse now. and I just felt like shit. I did not even fish. I went straight into the computer, bypass all the porn blocker and PMO twice. I swear to god the even my semen looked different after not coming in almost three weeks.

    Now of course I feel like shit. Half hour ago my girlfriend came back and jokingly asked if I’m still a hobbit and it was like a punch to the face for the both of us. She was so happy for me that I’ve made it two whole weeks that she made me a cake. So she was also disappointed and even that both of us know that this process would take time and would have some ups and downs. She just looked so sad, and told me that I too just didn’t act right (and I’m not, I’m being weird and I just don’t know how to not be weird right now). so we took some space and I’m in the other room right now typing this because I can’t be around her right now.


    And the really shit thing is that I know that I would PMO again tomorrow morning. On some level it’s all I really want. And I feel that in order to start a new streak I need to “get that out of my system” and at the same time I know that it’s the wrong thing to do.

    I don't think you will get anything out of your system by PMO, you will only maintain a very bad system that has been ingrained in some of us. I mean, since when do we get things out of our system? We know that the urges will come back again, but only stronger.

    Maybe you can think like this instead: you have only done PMO 2 times in 19 days. 2/19, that's probably a great number compared to where you used to be. Why not make your girlfriend proud and lower that fraction and make it 2/20 tomorrow, instead of 3/20? You still made progress, and that progress is not lost but will bear with you in the future.

    @bob200 ah, my heart goes out to you man. I'm sorry. Stay strong. We think nothing less of you. I really like @EpsilonDelta advice to turn your thinking into 2/19 days. That's a great way to not let depression and self-pity defeat you.

    What you decide to do in the next 24 hours can be a defining moment. I'm praying for you mate.

    Day 1! Having slight urges but nothing I can't handle thus far. I have had no problems with that software "covenant eyes" and my phone is tightly locked with my buddy having the key. So far so good!

    Honestly, the thing that I'm struggling with the most is finding the motivation to do these stupid lab reports for school. Because of Covid, my current school just gave us busy work to do and I absolutely hate it. These assignments aren't hard enough to be rewarding but not easy enough to just breeze through. They're just painful and I hate them.

    It just goes to show, disciplining the mind with nofap, can discipline you in other areas of your life. Here's hoping at least! haha

    Brother, it's a lifelong war against lust and people sometimes fall even after 10 years of being clean. Develop vigilance against it and have a good night sleep for a fresh start tomorrow .;)
    p.s. Try to come here everyday to refresh yourself on why you doing it.

    Checking in after a week of no internet due to being in the backcountry. Had a great time hiking and camping and watching the stars. Even there though scenes would pop into my head, the still lingering habits of PMO life. I’m wondering when, if ever, that subsides but I’m keeping up the good fight and there’s been no temptation to relapse since returning to civilization. I’m days away from 6 months and I’m not about to screw that up! Be well everyone

    Day 10. I felt like I was at risk earlier with some work stress, but now that I'm home I feel a lot better and there's no way I'm gonna lose this streak. I don't have a life time to tackle this issue, I want to knock it out of the park with this run and move onto bigger and better things. It feels like I've been at this for way longer than 10 days though... Feels like a very long time.

    Back to orc I go. I shouldn't have had that pint. Drinking alone is now on my triggers list.

    Getting stuck on not getting past week 2 it seems, fantasized about someone and MO'ed. Want to get rid of this as well next to P, so considering it a relapse.

    Day 2 check-in - The Dark Fortress, Barad-dûr.

    Going to check in on day 15, need to sort some stuff out and staying offline helped before. Best luck to you all
