Ages 20-29 / Keep on keeping on
« on: November 26, 2015, 10:26:04 PM »
Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! So I want to start saying that I gave in lat night, the urge started by watching fifty shades of grey, stupid by the way. What made this urge different was that I didn't really have the desire to watch porn and masturbate, I mean I ended up doing it, but I can honestly say that after listening to podcasts and researching the effects porn has on the brain that I knew that it was hurting me in ways I couldn't feel. It made it less desirable, I went to my favorite type of scenes and they weren't appealing anymore. None of it was actually, I nearly ended up falling asleep with while fapping. This is embarrassing to be talking about, but I feel as if my desires for porn are indeed going away with the more research I do about PMO. Every time I feel an urge now, I go straight to researching why porn is bad for the brain and how it pretty much can make life suck by destroying the gray matter. Interesting stuff to read actually. I hope this is a new mark of a newly developing mind I have. Still have plenty of work to do, but it's a start. I hope everyone else is doing well, and hope you all have safe travels and stay away from the nut jobs black Friday shopping.

Today was a good day as Ice Cube would say. Although I got a speeding ticket and didn't shoot a deer after another long hunt, I can honestly say that the thought of porn did not cross my mind and that my friend, makes it a good day. Still looking for something to do that will replace my urges when they do appear though. Any suggestions hit me up! Hope everyone is doing well and keep on keeping on

Ages 20-29 / Relapse after relapse after relapse
« on: November 21, 2015, 03:59:10 PM »
This has got to be the toughest commitment I've ever had. I can't even make it fifteen days without another relapse. This seemingly unbeatable struggle is going to be conquered one way or another. It'll take awhile I know, but I'm going to beat PMO, this shit is getting old!

Ages 20-29 / Do the research
« on: November 21, 2015, 12:22:44 AM »
I can honestly say that the past few days have been great!  I still had a few withdrawls today, but they were gone in a flash. Recently I was told to listen to a podcast on menprovement, and it had helped a lot! I've been keeping busy with hunting and school so that had helped me a lot, but every time I get a thought in my head I just distract myself as soon as possible with whatever I can!  Had worked tremendously so far

Ages 20-29 / I need to commit or quit
« on: November 17, 2015, 11:36:07 PM »
So I gave in the other day out of boredom.  I hadn't been visiting the reboot site, and hadn't been logging journals, and is taking a toll. I need to either commit to ending this and do journals and whatever need be, or just not do it all and quit on everything.  Quitting is not even option in my life, so that's out of the picture. It's time to do the journals everyday and knock down this wall

Ages 20-29 / Getting over this mountain
« on: November 11, 2015, 09:13:08 PM »
So I freaking gave in today, started by simply googling for a meme. This is just ridiculous how easy I give in, it pisses me off even more when it obstructs me from going to church with my friend. Freaking stupid. But I'm going to use this as a new starting point, my goal now is to double my previous limit. Get this shit done.

Day 4: Have been doing exceptionally well when it comes to thoughts and actions that could lead to PMO. I started lifting again yesterday, so hopefully that'll just make me so tired and sore that I just can't PMO. I read someone's forum the other day and they said to think of your junk as only a penis, no names or anything else. They said to not fantasize. They said to limit your touching of your penis to only the bathroom and nothing else.They said to also limit the amount of things that opened the door to leading to PMO, like amount of time on your phone. I can honestly say that saying that felt embarrassing, but I can also honestly say it has been working. Thank you to whomever said that, and sorry for not remembering you. In other words, hope y'all are staying busy and avoiding the stupid crap. So keep on keeping on!

Ages 20-29 / Restart sucks, but helps
« on: November 08, 2015, 11:37:21 PM »
 So I gave in after about 15 days, and relapsed... like four times. Pissed me off, but now I'm ready to get this crap under control, so I'm using these mistakes as motivation to actually reach my goal! Hope everyone is doing well, keep on keeping on!

Ages 20-29 / On the cliff
« on: October 29, 2015, 09:45:44 PM »
 Day 11, by far the hardest day so far. Had a long drive back home from visiting my brother at his college, and had the house all to myself, being independent is the spark to the fire. I was on my phone all day and was two or three clicks away from the beginning of several clicks in the porn websites, but settling hunt eased the mind, and a friends status saying, "temporary gain is forever pain, but temporary pain is forever gain." Thought if I could get through today, the others will be easier. Hopefully, but hope everybody else is doing well, and keep on keeping on. Also, if anyone knows how to set up the goal deal at the bottom please tell me, thanks

One week down! Past few days, I have had several moments when I would think about PMO, and think it'd be good to watch at that moment and be a good feeling, but I've overcome those moments by remembering I have more important things to do. And a good reminder for yourself is to always remember you have the Reboot community behind your back, and just the thought of sticking with you all and not letting you down has helped me a lot! Hope everyone is staying strong! Also, if anyone knows how to make the green goal status bar at the bottom, let me know! Thanks for reading and keep on keeping on!

Day 3: past two days were smooth sailing, I did have one instance where a porn site popped up, but I was looking for a hunting website so that crap don't count. I immediately got off. One of the toughest things is social medias, I've been on a roll with blocking people. It's for a good cause, they'll understand. Three days in and I'm cruising with no withdrawals "yet", but I'm reading other journals and using them to help me keep fighting the good fight. Hope everyone else is doing well also!

Ages 20-29 / The Mark of a New Beginning
« on: October 17, 2015, 11:38:41 AM »
So I managed to find this website by a Facebook post, and within the post I was able to begin this new journey. I was introduced to porn when I was about 10 and from that point on, I had used every bit of my testosterone driven teenage years to use every bit of free time I had to masturbate and watch porn. Well I'm twenty now and this has got to stop. I am a very strong Christian and this "sin" of maturbating and watching porn has driven me to a stage of depression after giving in. I can reach nearly a week without maturbating or watching porn, but this urge is too strong and I give in. I avoid being independent cause that's when I most likely give in, I avoid taking my phone into the bathroom when I shower, and I avoid search engines unless they are greatly needed. These are the things that get to me, but it can be as easy as something popped up on TV and strikes a memory of a scene I watched. I WANT THIS TO STOP. I want all the urges to go away, I want to see women for who they are and not the object they aren't, I want to live a life without porn or maturation! So this marks a new beginning, the beginning of my journey to completely stop! My goal is to go 100 days without porn or masturbating, I'm three days in. Wish me luck! Any advice, I'll take it
