    Day 23 down. Prayer before bed is my secret. I ask God to take this out of my hands and by-in-large He does. Amazing.

    Wow, Chali, thank you so much, it felt so good to read your reply, I had chills in my body and all. I see you can get the point where I'm at, it's very encouraging to feel understood.
    I completely subscribe what you say about medicines, like Ganja for instance. I began using them for health but then I started abusing them, in a crazy search to unveil the secrets of the Universe, and it backfired really hard...
    Today's my third day without weed, nineth without P and M, and I'm feeling great about it, stronger and more attractive.
    Thanks again to all of you that are commited to having a better life (and making the World a better place), I feel I'm in very good company here.

    Also loved how LeviTheFree put it, every day is a victory towards that!

    A bit late, but I'd like to join in. My goal is PMO-free for 90 days, including the rest of this month.

    Day 17 done, was busy today, but evening was free....found my mind wandering a little bit, having not been thinking about it all week...so this evening was a test..
    Just kept thinking why break, what's the point, and told myself no and stayed strong... time for sleep now, tomorrow is another day.
    Good luck everyone

    Hi. This is my first challenge and the first time I've shared my PMO addiction struggles with a community.I want to stop PMO because it has done more damage than good. I want to regain my confidence and motivation, so I could be great again. Hoping to make it 30 days...Hard mode

    I am almost half way through a 90 day PMO. Feeling under maximum pressure since last night to act on my temptations, but I'd rather achieve my 90 commitment. I'm joining this thread to revitalize my commitment for the rest of May, then I'll probably join for June. Doing things to be more committed seems to pull me out of these periods of temptation.

    ByebyeManuela - I’m glad my words resonated.
    Unfortunately, it is so much easier to provide advice guidance and feedback than it is to take one’s own advice, guidance and feedback; and to live it consistently and ongoing in one’s own life. Last night I had a NoFap fail and I’m back on day one. Bugger! Get up, stand up and do it all again, hopefully somewhat differently this time. Perhaps each time, we learn something new, we understand this drive better and it’s pitfalls, and eventually we learn to master it, taking back the power finally and fully. May the force be with each and everyone of us now and always. Fapstranaut Chali - Day 1 of current period.

    Yes, man, it also helped me to join, I hope you can make it through, and congratulations for the half way there, it's already a lot, don't waste it please! I know it's not easy but I really hope you find a way to redirect that pressure to something else. It's just a lot of energy wanting to be used. I think the good thing here is we can all rely on others' efforts to sustain our own. Good luck and thanks for sharing!

    Ouch, brother, I'm sorry... What you say makes sense, each time we fail we can learn a little more about the traps we put to ourselves and how they work, but only if we really pay attention and avoid falling many times in a row. It's easier to understand what happened if you can observe that one failure alone and not blurred between many others.
    I'm not very good explaining myself in English, hope you get what I mean.
    It's obvious to me that you understand the power of what we're doing here so I'm sure you're gonna make it.

    Hola Brother, your English is far superior to my Spanish, I shall not even attempt to speak in Spanish, so, thanks for your efforts in speaking outside of your mother tongue. I Fully understand what you mean, and wholeheartedly agree. Make the change Swift, don’t fall too often, don’t let the cycle become habit or blurry or you will miss the realisations. Cut it off at the root. Full reboot! Be clear, focused and strong. I’m quite new to NoFap, this was only my second fall. Hopefully not too many more, if any. I was going for 00 days. This time I’ll just follow the program, I’ll go for 90. I know you wish me well and I think you and advance. You are right there is power in this, and I thank you for your strength.
    Thanks for your understanding, and for your thoughts on this subject. Very sharp observations indeed I shall take them on board. Thank you. All the very best to you on your continued journey. ChaLi ;)

    We're almost there. This has proven to be the hardest month of this year but it's also the best I've had since this year. There a correlation between effort to stay free from PM and joy of accomplishment. If I continue till the end of the month it'll be the first month without PM in about 10 years. I keep wondering how the hell did I get here? But what matters is how I get out of the mess I've made. Thanks everyone for your posts, shares and encouragements.

    Aaaaargf, Leviiiii, Captain Leviii!!! (your name doesn't come from Attack on Titan by any chance?)
    I gotta say being new to this it's still funny to me when someones says he's failed, and my visualization of his failure is him having an orgasm... Quite awkward... :D:p
    We're leaving this behind, brother, just as you said... A little stumble is OK, now keep on goin!
    I wish you the best, and thanks a lot for your honesty towards us and yourself.

    I feel you, man, I wonder the same thing. I punish myself a little too much every day thinking I should have quit this waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before. I just can hope this feeling of guilt will slowly vanish with time now that I'm so commited to never fall again.
    I gotta say every day I look here and see the counter growing up it feels so good it almost gives me a boner... which is kind of counter-productive but anyway... :D;)
    Thank you for holding on!
