    Day 19. I am cultivating a sense of inner calmness. There can be a still place which we can retreat to when the temptations arise. We can let the urges pass by, knowing they are temporary, like waves in a storm. We can build our confidence in that refuge within ourselves. :emoji_island:

    89/365. I am reaching the stage where I feel better, but I get anxious because my porn-induced anxiety is less/gone. It's like a tiger(urges to relapse) is attacking you every few seconds, but then it fades away. Now my guard is down, and I feel uncertain. But I know it will come back when I least expect it. I need to start pursuing my goals(physical fitness being a primary one) more actively to cloud out any chance of that happening.

    I downloaded Wim Hofs (the iceman) free 3 day mini course on the Wim Hof method which includes a breathing technique, cold showers and meditation. 5 days now of the cold showers. After the initial jolt I'm starting to enjoy them. I intend to make the breathing , which is supposed to alkaline the blood, the showers and meditation part of my life. When I start my day like this along with a bit of a workout it gets a momentum going . Quitting the pmo frees me up to create something strong and good of my being and to make something beautiful of my life. I'm grateful to you all because I couldn't do it alone. One day at a time.

    Flatline periods are flat because your body prepares itself for a future so good you could never have imagined. Endure!

    That sounds like a perfect start of the day, keep going!

    I have been taking (only) cold showers for almost one year now and I must say I love them. When it comes to breathing, I am not a fan of the Wim Hof method, however, I do take deep breaths every morning as the first thing I do when I wake up. The routine has slightly changed since I started to go for a morning run but what I do is usually this: As soon as I open my eyes, I go up and go out on the balcony and take ten deep breaths. Then I do a short morning exercise for 10 minutes to get my heart pumping. When I take my cold shower (once or twice a day), I always take ten deep breaths while the water is flowing over my head. Since 18 days back, I have changed the routine a bit: I go up earlier (05:00 - 05:30) and the first thing I do is to go out for a morning run, then my short exercise, then a cold shower. It's also good but it's maybe a bit too tough for the body to go out for a run every day, so I can't say right now I'd recommend it. However, having ten deep breaths at the balcony as soon as you open your eyes followed by a short morning exercise is a great way of waking up.

    Last but not least: If you stick to your cold showers, you will build a strong mental power to overcome any addiction.

    The little things that I used to take for granted are now making life a joy. This morning just listening to the birds sing made me happy. I notice the wind blow against my face and body more often than not and it makes me feel alive. My meditation practice is now more mindful. I sit more in solitude and feel comfortable with myself and not wanting to escape myself. I am also losing track of the time I have been on my latest streak. I think I am beginning to understand what mindfulness is.

    I 've been off with my sleep the last couple days and so woke up late this morning missing my morning workout/meditation etc. I rushed out the door so I could sit and have a coffee before going to my daughter's school for some activity. First chance I get I'll do my normal morning ritual. Changing from a totally undisciplined person to a man of discipline takes some doing but I m making progress. One day at a time.

    20 days. Had some temptations last night. It's almost like my brain sometimes just throws random mental images at me to see if any might trigger me. It's annoying, but I don't feel like they're as powerful as they used to be. Through learning to observe my thoughts I can see the process itself, and thus be more analytical about it, instead of just responding to it without thinking. They're just thoughts, and I can let them pass while moving my focus somewhere else more positive.

    This day has been kind to me. No temptations, no urges. I feel more positive after speaking to long time friend. It occurred to me that I am not the only one struggling with depression.
