    Day 10/90 done. Today I used my smartphone a lot. Now this is a sign of destruction for my streak. Missing my gym from last 2days another bad sign. Tomorrow need to compensate all these. My thoughts about i should not pmo are increasing which is bad because I am thinking of no pmo rather than lifestyle. All these have been before streaks warning signs before relapse. Don't know this time how I am going to deal it. Cheers guys.

    - I have changed how I present my information above in order to have a more positive focus about my journey, as suggested by JK
    - I feel better about my journey now as I realize I am not perfect and will make mistakes
    - the process of learning and predicting what your triggers are and how to avoid or control them, is what I am working on
    - of course day counting is using the will power method which only works for about 5-8% of the pop
    - but I am still here and trying my best to make 90 days come hell or high water :)
    - happy "hump" day as they say everyone

    i was very tired because of insomnia and poor sleep structure. started thinking about porn and went to a website. but before i even watched 1 video i decided to look at the escort ads. this has been my cycle for over 5 years. it always starts with porn or cravings for porn, but i usually end up wanting something more powerful.

    bother you need to be careful if your goal is to stop porn or remove porn out of your life you have to eliminate the words prostitute because sleeping with a prostitute doesn't change anything you remain exactly at the point where you started your counter I mean zero I know it is difficult to stop porn but here are the best points you can remember

    Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. so in your fight with porn, you should need the strength of will.

    Do everything you have to do, but not with greed, not with ego, not with lust, not with envy but with love, compassion, humility, and devotion.

    Change is the law of the world. In a moment you become the owner of millions,

    • In the other you become penniless. same with the porn

    Calmness, gentleness, silence, self-restraint, and purity: these are the disciplines of the mind

    There are three gates to the self-destructive hell: Lust, Anger, and Greed. so try to avoid those three by meditation and by other means.

    A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes and so The future depends on what we do in the present.

    when an alcoholic seeks help to stop alcoholism, they find a sponsor, a life coach select a life coach if you don't have one then your soul is the coach for you and believe in it.

    You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual or a perfectly loving and kind man. There is no other teacher but your own soul. because of its addiction inside you, no one can take your brain clean it and replace it only you can do it

    All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes i.e porn and cry that it is dark.

    Many say where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being? so think carefully if you believe in god or not or you believe in nature both men and women are created equally so don't forget the fact.

    If you stay, stay forever. If you need to win, do it today. If you change, change for the better. don't be engulfed by porn a beautiful journey awaits you.

    in the end, we don't remember the most beautiful face and the body but we remember the most beautiful heart and the soul

    don't stop until the goal is reached.

    Yeah, I'm good now, took a walk and got over it. A little tired but I'm still clean
    I just know I was doing some risky/dirty stuff the night before and that is probably what set me off so I really have to watch myself and take this seriously because I made a commitment to finish this challenge
    It's those moments that are important to me because they test me, as much as I really wanted to release I reminded myself that I had a commitment to keep and got up and did something else
    Edging/risky behavior is a slippery slope and it will eventually catch up to you, I was just tired of failing at this point so I denied myself O
    Hope this helps, stay clean and have a good day
  13. Hell yeah brother that helps me, it helps you, and it helps EVERY single person that reads what you just wrote.

    Because if you were able to stand up and go for a walk, you just proved to everyone else on this thread that it is possible to break the cycle of urge and release, no matter how bad the urge is.
  14. Makes sense. People lose willpower when they are tired. Is there something else you can do that doesnt take much effort that you can do when you're tired instead of watch porn?

    yeah, sometimes i noticed that after orgasm (from sex), there´s a dizziness in the head and fatigue in the body in the next days. it´s very similar to the effects of PMO. therefore maybe the best way to reboot is going all no p-m-o, cause maybe pumping orgasms during the reboot may not be that adequate :confused:, i don´t know.

    sorry to hear that bro :(. yeah the autopilot sucks ass, it´s like a damn pull. anyways this comes to show and prove the danger of the first peak. write down in your motivation "on the day x in the morning, major relapse happened after i allow myself to watch sexy pictures, midbrain took over and bam". by constantly remembering this relapse you prevent yourself from further ones. now be aware for the binging since your brain will start telling "well, if i relapse, i might as well relapse all the way".
    when we binge we make the withdrawal much worst and the effects of the rewiring badly damaged. so my recommendation is physical barriers because in these moments willpower is very flawed. just stay outdoors or in the house with somebody, screens always facing exposure.

    i´m doing the free course of JK, 20 ways to quit porn, it´s more simple that Reboot Intensive but has good tools also. check it out bro.

    let´s go again my friend, one day at a time. to climb a mountain sometimes we must do a base camp ;)

    Day 85
    A fucking boring annoying geography trip today for fucking 9 hours. I am very tired, but Im very proud that I play in last time a lot guitar! And I started with cold showers again. Ok fuck it Here begins the part were it`s really REALLY unpleasant and heavy to talk about it for me
    Before I was in the trip I met my classmate. Before eastern vacations we talked a lot and still have the same homeway. Well, I dont know, it´s really...strange. I..I dont know how to explain it but, I mean it´s, I want to do more things with her. I dont know why because she repeats herself again and again and again and doesn`t have a good reputation. She is a nerd. (Well for the most but for me she is only a smart girl). And earlier I didn`t liked her but now it`s, it`s really weird. I get a bit excited when we talk. I want to do more with her. Bruuuh did I really said that?? I CAN`T EXPLAIN IT! And I can`t ask her out because... well I think she isn`t interested at me and we only have this classmate relationship. Also she had never a boyfriend and doesnt seen interested right now to it... even thinking about to go out with her is on the one hand a excited happy feeling, but on the other hand it`s HORRIBLE! Because she and I? We`re like day and night! Uff maybe you noticed that I contradict myself (or that I just love to dramatic everything) but I got those thoughts about months! Maybe we`re toooo different, or I am too dramatic? Or I am just an idiot... how embarrassing

    you´re experiencing the hardest part of the reboot which is the first weeks, where the compulsion to PMO is very strong.
    here´s some pointers:

    - have a fixed wake up hour and fixed go to bed hour. that will adjust your brain to the sleep and vigilant states.
    - drink tea, or barley or even sleeping pills to help you sleep better. sleep is very important cause is one of the many sources of gaining energy.
    - if you can´t go to sleep in 15/20 minutes, don´t stay wandering in the bed. get up and do something, something light, read a book or something.
    - when you go to sleep put your mobile in other division of the house. don´t let the smarthphone be in your room. i relapsed many times just because at midnight i was horny and my mobile was 1 meter away....

    don´t test yourself bro, as an addicted, the willpower is a weak opponent against your disturbed porn brain. just create all the barriers that you need. antecipate. when the urges appear they will have no mercy so you got to be ready. be smarter than the addiction.
