  2. Adding @espresso18 to the challenge. Welcome to the challenge, you'll be added to the PLATINUM tier because day 100 has passed. Plenty of time to make a huge stride running into next year. Best of luck to you.

  3. Kinda chuckled when I read this. Mostly because I was that kid. Great job being aware and keeping your mind engaged on what was possible, & working through. We can't always just walk away from the threat, sometimes we need the skills to get through like this.

    Day 8. I have some vague memories of wanting to look at bad stuff last night but once again just went to sleep. Thanks for being here everyone.

  6. Seems like after a while that stopped being the issue for me. Of course early on I had access to all sorts of vivid strong images to contend with. It passes bro.
    Mostly now I deal with the temptations of the present. My wife being a huge one. I have her here, I want her daily. I'm learning to control this. We see or can see triggering stuff everywhere. Tv, internet sites, ads, the gym, the stores, the streets. The world is more and more sexualized. We are going to get tested. Over time even that will be easier and easier. Im still at a relatively a low level of strength and discipline in this area. But far past where the old me was.

    Good luck man. Keep going.

    Been a week already. Never thought it would be so easy to complete the first week. However, the next week for me is going to be harder. In the first week the motivation is new, the brain still remembers the negative effects that porn was having on it, it also remembers that the pleasure really wasnt what it anticipated it to be. Now though, the motivation starts fading away, the brain starts forgetting the negative effects, and it starts to convince itself to believe the lie that it was really pleasurable. So it's going to be a hard phase but I am committed not to relapse. Hopefully I can get through this next week.

    Day 8

    I'd love to join you all in this! Is it too late? Obviously I can't make 100 days in 2020 any more, but I can still make 90 if I avoid it entirely!

  9. I relapsed today unfornately brothers and sisters. I had a urge and it all started when I was reading a newspaper and it appeared some models and one thing take to another.

    But I feel stronger and stronger and the urges are even more weaker and I know that NoFap is a lifestyle, a journey. I'm learning and adapting even more.
    NoFap It's not about counting the days that abstain from PMO, it's about changing your lifestyle, your habits and your mentality.
    Meditation helps a lot in this way.
    The Key is focus on important things in your life, family, work, meditation, reading, workout, etc. and with this, build a new lifestyle.

    Good luck with everyone and remember "Rome wasn't built in one day".

    Day 0 Check in!
    Let's go! :emoji_fist:

    Hey, @BrohkenCompass would love to join if not too late - I'm already on 40 days but wants this continue because I'm feeling great from it, just exercising that control and being in charge of my life!

    Peace,

    Excellent reminder.
     
  15. Sorry to hear about your setback. I agree about your perspectives. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward.

    Day 15 - hello friends, checking in. I'm feeling lost and without direction. My attention span problem is in high gear. Can't stay focused on task for more than a minute or two and this is when my mind defaults to going to a P site. I've got to try to get work done so I'm at a computer, otherwise I would just go somewhere and leave the internet connection far away. Maybe just hit the deck for ten pushups every time the mind wanders? Struggling these last few days...

  19. Adding you bro. Putting you on the LEGENDS tier, your streak qualifies you. Nice to bring some more folks into the mix. Best of luck!
