Well done Slayer! I'm happy to hear such a warm romantic story!
I hope it goes well for you two
Day 15 completed.
I almost failed yesterday, as a combination of two powerful triggers sent me to a P site for a bit.
Luckily I regained mindfulness and left without watching any videos.
Full report in post number 53 here:
I'm making a judgement call and keeping my streak. I'll continue on the NO PMO path and prove this choice right.
Relapsed after 46 days. Cant believe it. Dont know what to think. Im tired of myself.
I also have to say it wasn't worth it if it helps anyone. I just threw away the effort of 45 days in 5 minutes. Don't make the same mistake as I
Your personal criteria didn't make you to break the rules of no P M and O so reset your counter back to 147 (to save yourself from trouble of updating your signature everyday) and try to simplify your thinking and your life, because it sounds like you made them over-complicated.
You tired of yourself because your thinking is wrong. If you quit PMO it's not for a streak, it is once and for all decision, there is no going back ever. It's like taking a red pill where your new awareness do not allow you to follow the old ways,where old one is like 'amputated part of you body' which is never to be used again. If your thinking is right it doesn't matter what day it is 0 or 10000 for days are only good for tracking your journey through recovery of your body and mind after you eliminated this addiction from your life and to show brothers the benefits and challenges during your way of clean and healthy life.
I tell you about benefits that appeared after day 65 for me - It's courage to follow through with your decisions, to speak out your mind, without cowardly overthinking the consequences of what you want to say,no matter the audience 1 or 1000s, it's courage to go to and try out the very limits of your perceived abilities.
I made same mistake as you meny times, once relapsed after 49 days second time after 45, those are my longest streaks tho, most of my relapses in past is becouse even if i do a little slip up, for example fantasizing, i felt like i messed up something and then going fully PMO. On this streak i really don`t care if i do fantasizing and i realized, changing my mindset was very helpful, now i feel like i can go even 1000 days ^^
Just one bad day doesn't takes whole of your effort in PMO.
Think of it as a gym.
If you are doing it everyday then a bad day like 3 times double cheese pizza with extra cheese toppings doesn't make your tummy go wild.
Relapse in NoFap is little bad than eating pizza but the healing your body,mind and soul has done in 40+ days won't disappear in a moment. Always remember that.
Interesting... My thinking is not so unclear, however. If I have to put a little more work into updating my counter I will do that. Those little clicks and those few key strokes here are there use up way less energy compared to how much I spent in the search for and watching porn in the past. Plus, I do spend a great deal of time writing in my personal journal anyway. Perhaps you are referring to the tedious nature of it. Still, the exchange is worth it in my perspective.
Thanks for your suggestions though!
Day 25. Had wet dream yesterday but the discharge was seriously less and wasn't feeling any fatigue. Did more intense gym than yesterday and more job related work also.
A little bit procrastination while preparing for job change.
Let's try for the best.
Starting today on day one as a low-class warrior.
Let's go, brothers!
Congratulation Elite Warrior!!!
Please be an Elite from now on and go on with the next milestone in mind! Forget the P site, all those triggers and urges! It's just temporary, even if it comes back to your mind, don't forget: it's temporary, it want to drag you back and it's not worth it. You CAN do it. Just go on my friend, keep pushing!
We might be seeing the situation from different perspectives brother ! It was educating to find out yours !
Hey gilgames, you just left the 10 days mark behind you. For me personal after each milestone lurks a psychological danger: you feel the achievement and forget about the need to stay vigilant and walk the line. I believe relapse often happens directly after milestones.
But today you made it another day and you're on your way to the first rank of this challenge: Elite Warrior. Go on and be brave! And stay calm and collected.
Relapsed day 0 tomorrow.
Thank you for being vigilant on me.. i agree with the fact relapses happens when you are on your milestone.. i don’t think it’s the case.
I downloaded an app called “iDays” to easily remember my count and tracking my days, but i put Jan 11th instead of 13th as start date of my challenge here... that’s why i was so hurry!
That’s my first post on Jan 13th! so i edited my app to keep tracking regularly.
It says i’m on day 9 now, to be honest!
But it’s ending, and i can see day 10.
Thanks for your kindness and support, thanks to dedicate time to me!
