    Checking in Fellowship.

    Terrible morning today as i had a fight with a co-worker. feeling better in the afternoon. this dopamine lack from the withdrawal is really making me vulnerable and nervous. so i´m gonna intensify my wim hof work, because i don´t like being a cold brick and prick.

    Other than that, i doing my reboot work well, and my sleep finally is improving. so i have good hope in that department :)

    Have a good day brave Warriors :). Checking out.

    Day 30

    Nice to be in Rivendell!

    But I am experiencing cravings. I've been talking to girls on dating apps, not for masturbation purposes but to find dates, but I've become conscious of how addictive it can be. Sort of like fishing. I'm going to try to cut down.

    Right now my biggest motivation is how good I've felt in the last two weeks compared to how I always feel from Days 0-12: low energy and unmotivated.

    Cold showers have been a big help. I'm up to 70 seconds.

    Sleep
    I’ve been waking up before 4 am almost 10 days straight, my sleep is one of the best I had in years. It has helped me that I created this 4am challenge of waking up before 4am, by doing this my mind just falls sleep because it knows it has to wake up always at the same time.
    This is important to me, because a good sleep means less stress, more energy. When my body is under more stress I feel more the need to ejaculate. So a good sleep is essential.

    This is the Challenge if anybody wants to check it out

    After reading the @ListenPaul post I came to think something. Do you guys feel that its harder to get through recovering in the winter comparing to summer? I cannot be sure of it, but I feel myself much better now that the winter is over here were I live. Those days of heavy rain, cold temperature and less sunlight gets me depressive as hell, and its a huge environmental trigger to relapse. Do you guys feel the same?

    Here where I live we have winters of 0°C to 10°C and summers of 25°C to 35°C, and it loses a lot of sunlight over the winter, in case of comparing.

    I think it's related to vitamin D and psychological issues.

    Day 3

    A lot of really strong urges again today but I got through every single one so I'm feeling extremely proud and empowered from todays battles. I found that self talk was helping ALOT today, I was talking to myself as if I was coaching myself. So, by this I mean I would say stuff like "Hey man I know you're feeling really shitty right now but I need you to keep holding on ok? You're doing insanely well, not many people would be able to get through something like this and you're doing it so you should feel amazing about yourself. Just a little bit further!" stuff like that. This is actually really really helpful so I highly recommend it.

    Day 11. Today was a busy day working out, doing my work, studying, time for praying and reading some reboot material , I’m leaving one moment of the day for a quickly read of reboot material so I can stay focus everyday

  15. Day 3 complete. My mind attempted to wander towards fantasies during class, but I quickly reined it back in. Making it to one week is usually a pretty big hurdle for me, so I can't cut myself any slack right now.

    Double digits!

    Today I’ve done my morning meditation and just had 5 minutes of porn flashbacks. I hate when that happen, but that is part of doing meditation daily. On some level it’s really good to just sit with the pest experiences and being able to end the meditation, get up and go with my day without running to watch porn like I used to when that happen to me in the past.

    In less than 72 hours I’m starting my new life in berlin. We are at the “throwing everything out and painting the walls white” phase of the move and time just move so fast right now.

    I suggest that anybody who want’s to get the first two weeks of nofap to just try to immigrate into a different country, you won’t even have time to fap, it’s like cheat codes. I’m just happy that at the same time I’m building good habits and trying to turn my life around so even when stuff would calm down I could keep going and won’t just crash.
