    Tonight will be difficult- a quart of chocolate milk for energy and a chocolate football that was 70% off won't do me any favors. But I'll try.

    Hey how’s it going ,I’m learning about using your WHY? For me I want to drive a transformation I kind of run a video of myself and everything I dislike and want to change and reminds myself that’s why! Lazy ,unmotivated ,weak ,scared, not confident , timid , not fulfilling my personal legend and more .and I recently read awaken the giant by tony Robbins that made this ideas clear I associate pain to doing the things that make me weak , and pleasure to the actions I need in order to hit a macro goal . Another idea is setting new goals and letting those goals be your target constantly driving on the attack even if it’s small goals and doing more everyday of those small goals eventually you see the man or women that is hidden under the junk of life the person needs to be fed with positive fuel images mentally inroder to keep growing .good luck

    Whenever you have an urge you could always try to think about something else. It's not easy but it can be done. It's helped me in the past.

    Day four, is it normal to have non masturbation related anxieties? I feel like I'm getting stronger urges today.

    We fap and watch porn as coping mechanisms. We need to find new ones that are healthier. It’s really that simple.

    I’ve never whacked off in the shower. Never even crossed my mind but then again I masturbate prone which isn’t the normal either.

    The shower has been my go to for a while simply because it is much easier to clean up (My stupid 15 year old self would just leave it on the carpet in my closet, then 17 year old me would use Kleenexes, which would sit in my room for a while, before transitioning to the shower. Now, I just grab a pair of underwear then bury it in my dirty laundry if I don't jack it in the shower), except when other people don't clean their hair off the drain.

    More developments:
    Really wanted to jack it in the shower due to a headache, but ultimately went to bed early.
    However, because I went to bed early I woke up at 2 in the morning and had way stronger sexual thoughts- both normal fantasies and porn recollections (even recalling some forgotten images) with a pretty strong erection. But I made it through without masturbation and did fall back to sleep.
    I may have more sexual thoughts than usual today but I'll probably be fine.

    Here's my three week update- Energy had been on the rise before, but I THINK it's getting better. I've recently noticed I'm more tired after work. I don't know if it's a good thing or not.
    My concentration is still not clearing up. I at least want to watch a movie a night when I'm not working, but I can't do that for the following reasons-
    I want to be outside when the sun is out, and by the time the sun sets it wouldn't be a good idea to put something on that late.
    I find internet/ photography related stuff overstimulates my mind and I can't slow down and focus on anything but watching another disturbing lazy masquerade video, or planning out my next photography venture/editing photographs/ posting or looking at photographs.

    Also, having some issues with wanting to look at fine art nude stuff, I'm going to put tougher rules on myself since I don't want to lose the progress I've gained.

    And let me put this into perspective-
    high school me could watch five movies on a snowday no problem, 19 year old me could watch a Tarkovsky casually after an eight hour shift. 22 year old me has trouble concentrating on anything I put on for myself regardless of the situation.
