My dear friend, you are too amazing to not feel good about yourself. You may not be exactly where you want to be in life, but your worth isn't determined by your success, the amount of work you accomplish or what others think of you. You are worthy because you are you.
Congratulations on one day closer to infinity, you are doing much more better than you realize :)

Thank you my friends without you i don't think i would have been journaling. Thank you once more  :)
Day 18
The urges are becoming stronger on the other side i have started taken small steps in my self care for example today i drank two cups of water in the morning, meditated for 1 minute  :) , went for a 3 minute run to the library. To be honest i wanted to do more than that but i wanted to do something that i am able to do in the long term. I have learnt there are times i should learn to say no and take a break from using the computer. In my mind i should be doing more and more but in reality my body is not able to sit infront of a cmputer for more than 2-3 hours.  I stopped eating in the morning when i felt i was full and that is something i am proud of  :)

You two mean a lot more than you realize. Thank you very much :)
Day 12
Reached 2 digits! On the other hand i am starting to get a sleeping debt and today was a really hot today fortunately there i have been able to cool myself. Today i am going to play basketball with my younger brother. These past two days i have allowed myself to be vulnerable to other people, even though it felt uncomfortable, it helped me a lot. A close friend told me some cruel words. I wanted to give up on my streak and relapse but a kind friend told me not to forget who i am and as long as i face my fears i win :)

To the wonderful person reading i hope you are filled with so much happiness that it heals every part of you :) :) :)

Day 5
Today was a victory :)
Triggers Yeah I looked a video for the first 3 seconds and i am happy i got out of there. It was a song video but that is not how the first 3 seconds felt like that. After leaving my brain wanted to go back to the video and expose myself to p i said no- i have come to far to go back now. I think the level of my positivity is slowly progressing day by day and it is helping me to fight my toxic thoughts. Just the way i would never allow a friend who is precious to me to be talked to in a bad day i am slowly getting there, of course there are times i have had some horrible thoughts. It all starts with a thought, time to have thoughts of me progressing even if it is by one second it would be enough to make me happy :)

The best part of my day was that after using the computer for 2 hours i went and took a walk, took a short nap and ate food. In the morning i saw a boy give a kiss to his mother on the forehead. It is always nice to know there are good people everywhere :)

Please remember to be gentle with yourself today, no one is perfect. You are good enough just the way you are :)

Don't beat yourself up, man. We've all relapsed, and we know how shitty it feels. But it happens, and it doesn't mean you're a failure, it just means you were neglecting some aspect of your recovery. All that progress, it's not undone. You still have all that experience of living life clean to inform you going forward.

I am proud of you for reaching out *gives a gentle pat on the back*

You're doing great, and everything I've been reading in your journal shows so much commitment and self-awareness, and it's really impressive and inspiring. Keep it up!

Today was a victory- i love saying this  :)
I saw a woman after a came from a restaurant fortunately i was outside with my father and we were in a hurry to find a cafe- a bit of stress can be helpful at times  :)

You know whats best for you better than anyone else. When i am hesitating i weigh the benefits vs the consequences. Give it a trial if you want my dear friend. I f you think this is not the right time to tell her than seize the next opportunity that comes.
Whether you tell her or not we are still going to support you  :)

You my dear friend are an AMAZING person. You look at both the short term (one day at a time) and the long term (150). I am Proud of you  :)
Try your best to go to work if feel unsatisified for a long period of time ( don't wait for too long though) maybe then it is time to try to do something you are both good at and brings you Joy
You deserve nothing less than happiness  :)

Day 10
Today was a victory  8)
It had been tougher than the previous days i started having flash backs from the last time i had a relapse and there was this voice telling me, well you remember it was enjoyable why not give it a trial and then todays wheather is soooooooooooooooooooo hot but then i decided to go out and meet some friends, spread some kindness in the forum and the urge slowly started going away. I felt my BIGGEST trigger was boredom today i had finished watching my favourite tv show and i was thinking of replacing it with porn but luckily it was a thought and we all have negative thoughts from time to time. I am try to argue with the negative thoughts but the most effective thing i have found out was it is best to go and talk to someone  :)

Just a little message of encouragement for you. Remember even on days when you are feeling weak, you are strong and oh so brave. I know it takes courage to laugh, continue loving, living and find joy when life feels frustrating, confusing and unfair... but i know you have the courage it takes to keep moving forward.   You.  Are.   Amazing.  You are loved and so worth loving. Just remember to be kind to yourself. Most likely if you are tired, hungry and have not exercised in a while the chances of a relapse are significantly higher when you are in front of a screen. What has worked for me is to use the computer that is in the library and buy a phone that has no wifi. It is not a perfect strategy but most of the time a relapse would occur in the morning, i would feel lazy go for my phone and look for the "kick" now that i go around with a nokia that is not possible  :)
I hope that i might have helped you in any way my dear friend
