    I relapsed today on my 15th day. This was an interesting streak for me. The first week was basically a walk in the park, where I was incredible energetic, motivated and in a really great, positive mood. The second week, especially the last two days were the opposite. Interacting with other people suddenly became incredible exhausting, I felt depressed, short tempered, impatient and trying to not be a total asshole became increasingly hard. For the first time I think i didn't relapse because the craving for PMO itself was so strong but because I had serious dopamine withdrawals. I did not enjoy the P and M and even whilst at it I thought "I don't want to do this". Once it was over I felt disappointed in myself but at the same time I experienced the withdrawal "symptoms" disappear. It's honestly scary to me how much of an addiction this actually is and how at ease I feel now that I've given in to it. It's not very motivating to put my counter back to 0 but I do hope that what @Revanthegrey said is true. I don't want to waste what I achieved with my last streak by staring another binge section after this fall. I hope I manage to do that and that I go right back into it.

    Tough day
    Got a lot of triggers and I feel kinda unstable right now. Part of me really don't wanna relapse, but I know that the other part wants it really bad. Everytime I start to flirt with PMO, even just a little bit, I end up relapsing. I want to break that cicle

    90 days.

    Played football with my friends, meditated and had a relaxing day yesterday until I got an email in the evening that got me very stressed and confused about some things related to work. Stress is a trigger but didn't give in so all is good so far.

    Oh, and it seems as if I just evolved into a grey wizard. The Balrog of PMO shall not pass :)

    Day 8
    I've became an Uruk-hai. Had small urges, but I went away from the room I wouldn't be alone.

    Day 38. I need to go to bed, but I didn't want to miss a check in as I've made all of them since starting this challenge.

    Canada is in bad shape. I'm scared of what could happen here. I've been more stressed than I've been in a long time this last while and it's made it hard not to relapse, but I'm prioritizing the reboot.

    Day 26, Frodo just passed the Ford of Bruinen.
    I love reading the book during the challenge, it gives me so much focus and strength.
    The urges are slowly building up, but I need to remain on the path.

    Day 189 no PMO. Got back home yesterday and my wife let me know that she had been stressed out having to deal with everything on her own. She asked me to step up yesterday and do some of the prep work that she would normally do to get ready for the week. I appreciated her honesty and communication. Good day.

  17. I just read the passage where Gimli, the Dwarf lord, was asked by Galadriel what gift he desired from her. Gimli, who first answered "none", then admitted that what he desired was just one of her (Galadriel's) hair. Because she knows that Gimlis heart is pure and he's very galant and humble the beautiful Elf gives him three of her hair.
    Very poetic and romantic!
    Do you remember it?
