    Day 20 . My first temptation on this 20 days of my path to Mordor but strangely it didn’t make me feel like a big urge actually thanks to the reboot material i was so concious of his terrible truth so I didn’t give it importance and then it just went away . God bless you brothers and sisters. Let’s keep going forward

    My first non sexual date ever
    All my dates usually ended up in sex or with a lot kissing and touching. Even first dates.

    I had an argument with my girlfriend two months ago and we didn't talk since then.
    Until last sunday we started talking again.

    Yesterday I saw her, I knew she was tired from work and busy but made everything she could do to see me. We talked for 30-40 min. We ate and then she told me to go to her mother's house. I bought her an ice cream. When she gave it to her, her mother said I won half a wedding ring.

    Now, I know more about who my girlfriend is, what she likes and some fun talk too. She told me she's been talking about me with her friends and mother, they all seem to like me.

    Conclusion: By knowing the girl as a person I feel more comfortable with her, I know more about who she is and I enjoy her personality, it makes everything more fun, she is not just a lover now, she is starting to become a friend.

    There is no reason for you to believe that I am unhappy, nor that I pursue such an overhyped and passing feeling.

    Still a nazgol, ever since I've reset I didn't make it one day without pmo.
    And on some level I know / fear / accept that tomorrow is going to be so much worse.

    Tomorrow is my birthday and I'll be 30, and all of my life my birthdays had been my most hated day of the year. It's the day that I just want to be gone and disappear from the world. In the past that ment that my day would be 50% weed and 50% porn.

    Now I'm stuck here in a tiny apartment in a different country. after I have been unemployed for more then two years, having a nice mid-life crisis and thinking how I'm not a kid anymore.

    I know that if I can make it tomorrow that would be a huge win. But I also know that I won't make it. Even now I get a stomach pain just thinking about tomorrow.

    This post doesn't really have a point. I just feel weak and sad right now. I wish I was stronger, but right now I just want to crul into a ball and cry
     
  11. Damned! That sucks! But before you had a very good streak! You became Hobbit (how many days in the end?) and made it to Germany without a relapse. I think you managed to "survive" a lot of stress without using your favourite toy ...
    However you had probably too much time on your hands while being in a situation that is completely new and uncertain.

    But now is the time to say no to porn - even if it's just for some days. You deserve that! You don't need to conquer the world right away. Just start with little things. Maybe you can explore your surroundings a little bit or so.

    Also I would consider to talk with your girlfriend about it. So that she has some understanding of what's going on with you.

    It's probably good for you, if you would get some external pressure from somebody so that you don't feel as if you have a lot of free time (which the addiction can exploit).
    Or you keep yourself busy when you're at home with household chores or so.

    So in your current situation I wouldn't worry too much about your birthday. It's just another day of your life. Be grateful for everyone who gives a call or somehow reaches out and do something nice with your girlfriend. Maybe she has already planned something.
    Imo having a calm and peaceful birthday is much better than spending it with "50% weed and 50% porn".

  12. Hello back!
    I was away for some time to deal with my stuff hoping to become a hobbit meanwhile. Unfortunately I didn't.

    Day 209 no PMO. Went to the wedding last night. I’m not a big fan of weddings or getting dressed up but for some reason this one wasn’t so bad. No urges yesterday. All is well. Drive home today. Looking forward to seeing my kids.

    I relapsed again just now. I've been so stressed and just been stuck in thought loops about my first therapy session on Tuesday. All that stress made my appetite completely disappear so I literally haven't eaten anything all day and that then caused stress because I haven't eaten, so then the vicious cycle began: Stress about therapy = urge, stress and anxiety and urges = loss of appetite, loss of appetite = stress and anxiety, stress and anxiety = urge.
    I'll bring up these recent stress related relapses to my therapist during the first session. I know that things will get better once I start the therapy but it's still super super scary building up to it. I was originally planning on making my goal to not relapse until I at least had the first session but I'm getting overwhelmed with all of these thought loops, this stress and anxiety.
    It's so frustrating because I know it will be ok and that once I start the session I'll realise it's perfectly fine and it will be great but my brain just keeps force feeding me these negative thoughts about her judging me, me revealing too much information, her thinking I'm a bad person for the things my addiction has escalated to watching or just simply the therapy not working and I end up being stuck like this forever.
    These urges are getting so strong to the point that I literally feel like I'm going to throw up. I feel sick, like I'm having a panic attack (that might sound dramatic but it's truly how I feel) so even if I manage to quiet my mind the physical symptoms remain so it doesn't really make any difference because the physical symptoms cause my addiction voice to keep coming back anyways. I'm just so lost right now, and ironically the therapy will hopefully be the thing that helps me to find myself again, to find my path. But until then, I assume that I'll remain being stressed for the next couple of days until that first session, I think I just need to come to terms with that instead of constantly trying to desperately fight it otherwise it'll consume me even that it already has.

    It's so nice that you don't even have to fight the urges because there were none. Drive safe!

    Day 59

    Gonna have to spend most of the day at work (hate this job), not looking forward to it and often get anxiety about going.
