Day 20

Day 20

I feel constantly tired since yesterday. Sometimes depressed.

It is hard to distinguish what comes from withdrawal, what from pollen allergies, and what from just having a burnout (it's been busy and stressful at work). It doesn't help that it is an election year here in US and both sides are bombarding public space with doom and gloom visions to keep people polarized. I repeatedly planned on cutting out news completely but failed so far.

I expected to feel better after a relaxing weekend, but hey, it is what it is right now. At least somewhere in the corner of my head I am happy about winning over PMO lately.





If I were a general and wanted to make enemy's male population completely useless, I would just carpet-bomb them with porn.

Nicely said.
Even when everything is not working in our favors, we still can be in control of PMO. At times i take my energy and motivation also out of that i'm PMO-free since long time.

Day 21 -> 0

Back to Day 0.

I relapsed today after three weeks of a good streak. Probably because of a high stress at work.
I am trying not to be too harsh on myself right now but my mood is definitely very low.

Three weeks is nothing to feel bad about KittyHawk. Progress is progress setback or not. Go easy on yourself the next few days and i'm sure you'll be able to bounce back. Don't hesistate to post whenever you feel you need an extra bit of support too.

Hey KittyHawk,

Sucks man, but you know the drill; get back up on that horse.

And exactly what Orbiter said; also come on here when you feel that you're in need of help. Especially then we can be there for you (although not directly) but the process of writing it of and reading other things can help you stay strong.


Take care my friend, I am rooting for you

We're always here to help you get up again.

Maybe, in this stressy time, you can overthink your daily routine and where there is potential in the day to find peace and relaxation? Maybe get lost of something that isn't sparking happiness right now or do something that would just make yourself happy? My idea is, even when you relapsed, you have earned something good for your streak and bring up motivation for another go on the addiction fight.
