    Brother, you've got this! Just don't binge and you're safe. And thank you for your advice, that experience is certainly useful for us. I can testify it, the process of falling starts long before the act itself. I'd like to know what to do when we find ourselves in that process. How can we avoid the relapse when we see it's coming?

    Day 77 monk mode.

    I feel better and I am back in the routine. Speaking about the challenge, I am in the territory of second part of LOTR, so I think it would be nice to resume reading it. I'll try to find time for that.

    Rule number 1. Of course, no pornography, no masturbation, no orgasm. Check.
    Rule number 2. No searching for sexually stimulating material, guarding my look in the street, on TV, on internet, etc. Check.
    Rule number 3. Daily prayer. Check.
    Rule number 4. Following my day schedule. This includes going to sleep and waking up on time, starting and finishing work on time. Almost check.
    Rule number 5. At least one hour a day of activities not related to work, this site or empty internet browsing. Check. Gardening.
    Rule number 6. Daily journaling. Here or personally. Check.
    Rule number 7. Memory practise. I will relate it to my studies, so that I would save time. Check.

    It is a reset, when any of first three rules is breached. I should follow others as much as possible.

    Day 2 complete! Chaser effect is still strong and the mind is struggling to keep away the thoughts. Though I am happy I started recording again. The goal is to mold the mind and the body to write and create in the next following days/weeks.

  6. 400 + days semen retention

    How I'm doing right now

    Right now I think porn or masturbation are not a problem for me. Maybe I have a little problem with attractive girls that are damaged goods. I usually say no to them. But I need to give up the beauty of a woman even if they want to have sex with me. I'm almost a year of no casual sex. So that's good.

    I think I don't jerk off because if I do that's a down road spiral to casual sex and being controlled by my desires and also I'll be contributing to female depravity. I don't like people to go down because of me I'll never help a women to be corrupted even if they want to and want to have sex with me as a casual fling. So far so good.

    Dear Fellowship... I regret to inform you that I have been delayed. Indeed, I was too arrogant in how well I was doing and thought I would be safe within the walls of Bree. I let my guard down and was assaulted by a Nazgûl. This wasn't the usual breed though; it was a Nazgûl of fantasy, even more powerful as it can get you any time anywhere. I put myself in a foolish position and based on past experience I should have known not to. I was simply careless and gave into edging, and eventually it got me. One thing I can say is that I didn't relapse to porn, but the MO is still part of it and this is indeed a relapse.

    I don't think it has hit me yet... One thing is for sure, edging can't happen again, but it's almost compulsive so it's the hardest part to resist for me.

    Day 0 again I’m feeling hopeless but i dont want to give up , so let’s do this again
     
  12. Day 2 complete. In between some volunteer work at my church in the morning, and my actual job work in the afternoon, I took a nap for a little under an hour. During that time I experienced what I'm calling a wet dream, but there are some guilty, confused feelings lingering. It doesn't seem right that I should have had a wet dream just two days after a release, and I know that during a quick afternoon nap, a person won't usually fall into a deep, dreaming sleep. All that has me wondering if maybe somehow I did something to make myself more vulnerable. I'll be cautious moving forward.

    Why do you want this? Why you refuse to quit and give up?

    If you keep doing what you always done, how can you expect a different result? Take full inventory of every relapse, learn from your mistakes, change and adjust your lifestyle to be in harmony with your goal(s).
    p.s. If you keep details of your relapses to yourself you are cutting yourself off from the advice and help of experienced brothers who had overcome these problems already.

    Productive day even though I was easily distracted by my phone and computer when I tried to work. Not much urges.

    Yes friend it happened with me in the past. I lost too much time in these dating apps because i chose them as an alternative of p, but at that time in my mind it was not as bad idea as I now know that it is more worst than p. And yes brother you are right that these apps are designated for making us addicted with them.
