    Checking in. We had a full moon last night, I'm effected by full moons and I have relapsed on full moons in the past, but when I became aware of it I'm now able to stop myself. I hope everyone is ok

    Day 13 check in. Over the past week I have been distracted with buying a new vehicle. I am finding now with the emotional stress of buying and the the buyers remorse and back to how nice it is and working hard all week that I feel a little drained .

    Yesterday was really my first day where I really experienced any kind of "peeking" urges. The wife test helped, though there was a delay in abiding. The funny thing is that these urges honestly were pretty week, but I was so aware of them. I consider that a change.

    Weekends are always a challenge for me- it is like a challenge within a challenge. I feel pretty good this morning though.

    Lastly, I was never a fan of these challenges, but I must say it is having a positive impact on me. It has stirred up a can do attitude.
    Huge thanks @BrohkenCompass for having this idea.

    Everything is going fine. But I'll have to stay alert this time. Had really strong urges yesterday. Hope so I'll complete with the gold tier.
    All the best to everyone. :)

    @BrohkenCompass Thanks a lot for starting this challenge :)

    This challenge helped me a lot. This taught me numerous lessons which I can't forget in my whole life. Once again thanks a lot :)

    All good in my hood. Didn't get much or good sleep. We'll see how this day pans out.

    Congrats to all who are moving steadily forward.

    Don't worry about tomorrow, just navigate today.

    Oh, I can definitely get on board with that. It is very different this time around. First time, I would have tried anything, I was in such a bad state. This time, whether it’s that I wasn’t feeling as low as before, I’d convinced myself I could do PMO OK (I can’t), because I’d become accustomed to failed attempts since my last PMO-free time of any length came to an end, because that motivation had faded... whatever it might be, that motivation wasn’t the same. Equally, the process is affecting me differently. First time, I was feeling nothing in a sexual manner by this point, whereas now the urges remain. But the determination is here this time, unlike previous restarts. And I have a more visible tracker at home, too. That definitely helps.

    Today I was tired and had a long day at work. Also wasn't feeling at home when with my roommates.

    So I relapsed. Again..

    No excuses though. I take full responsibility. I have a different plan now starting tomorrow!

    I had to respond to this - how often I have felt the same way. Thing is, time is running out for many of us, we cannot wait another three months for another FALSE START. We have proven to ourselves time-and-time-again that we cannot keep these resolutions.

    As @BrohkenCompass says, the only time is NOW. Somehow I already am a LEGEND before I begin, will I stay a legend before the year is out?

    YES. YES I will, I already made the decision before and I make it again now, this life is too short to waste on FAP and other pointless activities. It is a life for each of us to self-actualize and become greatest versions of ourselves.

    We can only do that when we let the HUMAN in our soul take command over the ANIMAL (Like owning a dog), and not the other way around.

    I like how this challenge has been set up, and that there are things to ABSOLUTELY avoid and RECOMMENDED to avoid. I personally AVOID ANYTHING that is going to elicit arousal - because I notice a slipperly slope in myself.

    I have largely given up sugar, caffeine, alcohol and pharmaceuticals as well, because I also notice that when my mind is clouded with these things, I make stupid decisions like "Gee, Purdy I gon fap".

    To everyone who is on this journey, I honour and respect you all, because you are making such a positive investment in yourself and your futures.

    Sorry to hear you relapsed.

    Good to hear. One could easily assume this doesn't require forethought and planning, but I've learned that to not be true. For many, sheer willpower isn't enough either.

    This challenge is designed to add accountability and other resources from shared experiences, ideas, and suggestions. Hopefully, it's en

    Friday. The test begins.

    Many struggle on days that start with "S".

    Free time, boredom, or the opposite...a feeling of not enough time to get it all done in 48 hours.

    What has caught you in the past?

    What are we doing different this weekend?

    Me...I'm on a 200% string unshakeable unmistakable pledge to NOT try to get laid. I already know my wife's situation isn't optimal, she's not in the mood, she's mourning, she's hurting....and I MUST NOT be a selfish asshole.

    Time to suck it up and be a man!

    Today has been my most difficult day keeping to this challenge. Although there was no relapse, I failed my own wife test and tempted myself with some images. Generally, this always leads me down that rabbit hole until PMO. Thankfully, this time I was able to change course.

    I know for myself, it rarely is porn that I desire. It is always that dopamine hit through "non porn" avenues. The problem they are just a gateway to PMO itself. It is a rare time that I can dip my toe in the funnel without being sucked in.

    So, I move on. Those damn urges to peek are so hard....

    I don't know you. Maybe you are rich, maybe you aren't. Maybe one day you'll have a Million dollars or 5 Million dollars, or some other number that "seems untouchable".

    Maybe you have an idea of all the work and sacrifices it takes to attain that wealth. But still, maybe you won't get there.

    But I know this. If I handed you that Million dollars... you'd get smart as fuck about money, you'd hire an accountant and a financial advisor and you'd do EVERYTHING possible to make that money stay in your pocket and Grow!

    You'd work 10 times harder holding on to than trying to get that Million.

    And now....you have nothing between you and Legendary status - ("your goals") - but the choices required to KEEP what you HAVE.

    Don't let it go brother.

    None of you let it go. One more shitty regretful orgasm looking at strangers fuck. One more time cranking off to that "highlight reel" in your memories. One more time Jerking off to the idea of being the guy you want to be....but can never get there on that road.

    DO NOT LET GO OF YOUR GOAL

    Day 9 passed.
    I believe that, although this is, until now, my easiest streak, I am not doing much things about my personal goals. My mornings are always very productives, but the afternoon not so much, maybe it is my biological clock, but I truly hate not beeing produtive trough the day.
