Hello there... Days 4-5 Well, I think I've finally started crawling out of the post-relapse foggy state, which is a good sign. Now, what needs to happen is a more proactive approach to fight PMO and its cognitive consequences, rather than the passive substitution of PMO with another dopamine source (not sexually-related tho): Youtube, which I think is the reason why I've been able to ignore my urges rather than observe them and let them pass. It isn't effective in any productivity-related sense; mostly more than 12 hours a day binge-watching 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown, QI or old TV series, especially with my 4th semester exams coming up in one month. Unfortunately this has been the case for me for quite a long time now (almost a year and a half); putting off studying till last-minute, using PMO as distraction from emotional stress, and then Youtube as distraction from PMO, and so the one week cycle goes on and ends with a relapse on the 7th or 8th day, when the urges are too high to be ignored. A good starting point is the 20 day streak I've had recently, I guess. What helped me go that far? It was the holy month of Ramadan, which meant fasting from 3am - 9pm (from dawn till dusk), and so I had no energy to engage in any PMO-related action, and of course the spiritual environment was very serene and encouraging, with more prayer and connection with God. I was closer to establishing a daily routine than I've ever been (due to the strict meal/prayer time) I think I was more positive and optimistic in my approach to this reboot. I was more active on this site; reading recovery journals, checking in daily in the Muslim Fapstronauts group. After a while I got a bit bored and my visits became less frequent. I was implementing a 30 day No-Youtube-Challenge with a friend. It helped IMMENSELY. So, where could I go from there? First of all, I know now that giving myself too many tasks right from the beginning is counter-productive (as it makes me feel overwhelmed and usually the way to feel better would be PMO :/) , and so I'm just going to start by fixing my chaotic sleep schedule and confining internet-idleness to 3 hours a day, for a week. Then I shall add more tools based on progress. @Ambrose Grant It's a relatively uneventful update, hopefully at least half a step forward. Wish you the best of luck and stay strong.
