    Here is a thread about the little victories people have along their journey. We all have them, day in and day out. Some are bigger than others. This is where you can share the ones you take notice of.

    My little victory came yesterday. I was eight days into a streak when I relapsed, spiraling into a short-lived pit of depression that lasted a few hours.

    I emerged on the other side with some new coping mechanisms and a renewed sense of purpose, despite the slip. There was no P involved, nor has there been any urge for it since I started. I feel better now than I did starting out. Feels good, man.

    Well my little victory would be: Doing medidation on "Insight timer" app. A friend of mine from here suggested that app to me. I used to not like guided meditations but I love them now. It is a great app. I recently completed 50+ days on it with atleast one session. I only did it for 10-15 a day but before I knew it I was on day 60. I was surprised, I've never done anything so consistent before. I loved it.

    I didn't have for whole week PMO,
    Seems my mind gets clearer and I don't feel so depressed even when I have constant urge and then probably it's also trying to improve myself slowly when it comes to knowledge and mind.

    Thanks for the information, JohnDoe, and congratulations! I have to try that out. I've always wanted to meditate but never really got the ball rolling.

    You're absolutely right, meatsandwhich. Congrats on the streak. The feeling of clarity and focus will only grow with time. The urges will continue, and some will be very hard to confront. But as long as you can remember why you're abstaining from PMO (self-improvement, mental and physical relief, relationship reasons, etc.), you'll have a purpose that drives you away from slipping.

    If you do relapse, though - clean up, put on your rally hat and get back to these forums to pick up where you left off. There is no death sentence for this journey unless you write it yourself.

  5. I quit my job which was sucking the life out of me.

    I haven't touched drugs in almost 2 months.

    I finally opened a stubborn pickle jar.

    Wow, Son of a Bitch! Way to put an exclamation point on this thread. That's huge. Employment in particular can dictate a lot of what people see as their life, and finding a job that suits you might be the biggest step you can take (alongside drug and PMO abstinence). Keep it up. Things will only continue to get better.

    I just don't feel like crap when I woke up today. A bit tired but not sleepy and groggy and feeling as if I need another few hours. That's my little victory. And I am socializing a bit more but it's still a good difference. Nice thread, good luck everyone :)

    Great to hear, LordReshi. Mood is like a cruise ship. It usually doesn't move much in any one direction - unless it's forced to. That alone is cause for celebration. Additionally, any progress with socializing should be seen as a big win. That area in particular grows by leaps and bounds later on, and the hardest steps are the early ones.

    Nittu, good job on suppressing your urge so close to the relapse point! Have you thought about installing a blocker of some kind? That, combined with sheer force of will, can make a huge difference.

    My little victory is almost a perfect body, lost 12 kg do sport 5 times per week.
    On a downside, because of my healthy lifestyle, I am even hornier.

    I almost relapsed, but I watched at sexual type of pictures and firstly by accident and then wanted to see more, but I stopped myself in the way and it's bad, I really also felt body weakness and I felt also feeling more depressed right away

    Nittu, I don't know which one would be best for Android because I don't have any blocker on my phone, but if you searched their app store I'm sure you can find a good one. Also, I would suggest searching "reboot" in the app store to help keep things in line during the day.

    My latest little victories:
    I weighted myself and I lost 3.5 kg since I started diet and exercising 1.5 months ago. This is an achievement, because I am still recovering after serious injury and can do only limited exercises.
    I tried to invite one of my physiotherapist to a date, she refused because she has a boyfriend, but I still count that as a success. Better try and fail, rather than be afraid to try.

    Hey, asking someone out is the hardest thing you can do - and dieting is a close second! As long as you approach dating with a care-free mentality, you'll have no problem getting the girl you're looking for.
