The battle continues every day. I just keep rerouting those thoughts of pmo to something constructive.

Congrats on building a set of processes that allow you to win those daily battles, Jbow. Is there anything specific you do to re-route your thoughts?

Thank you big mog and work in progress.  Work in progress, when i get those thoughts to look ok at that stuff, I just remember how much hurt,and sorrow the pmo has caused me over the 3 + decades and know that's not what I want for my life anymore.  It has hurt me for years with the exact same outcome.  It's not who iam anymore.  I'm more than looking at a phone screen trying to get turned on enough orgasm.  Please, all of you keep up the good fight it's well worth it. Porn is no longer an option. There is so much more for us than this.

Thank you work. Your support means a lot to me. I'm up an hour and a half early. Life is good. Please guys stay strong. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. We have to weather the storm. Just know we are stronger than this addiction. Porn is no longer an option.

Good work Jbow. Yes "Life is good" and as we untangle ourselves from the clutches of PMO we appreciate it more.

Here we are rebooters.  One day stronger from this addiction we are all conquering.  I still occasionally have a thought about p but it is just a couple seconds and I'm done with it. I remember bedtime couldn't come fast enough, especially on the weekend. It feels so nice to not be a prisoner of that anymore.  If you are battling, please keep up the battle.  I promise you it will be worth it.  We have so much more in store for us without this disease.

Well the battle goes on.  I've just decided to not let the porn control me anymore. It's not what I want in my life.  I still not believe how different I feel, act,  and  even think. I will be 6 months pmo free in a couple weeks. I'm so excited for what my future will bring. Stay strong guys,  it's tough u know but work through the struggle.

I had an minor operation yesterday and really messed up my sleep cycle. At any rate woke up at 12:30 am wide awake.  I watched t.v. for a couple of hours and played some crossword games and at about 4:30 I finally decided to go back to bed. It wasn't until I woke up this morning that I realized porn didn't cross my mind once last night. I still cant believe it. Six months ago I would have been up surfing until my head hurt.  What a great feeling that was. I feel so free from that crap I have spent so many, hours, months, and years on spinning g my wheels. Please guys stay strong and dont let that stuff get in your way of a wonderful life. I will be 6 months pmo free in a week.

Way to go, Jbow!  I'm sure it must feel amazing to be almost a half year PMO-free.  You're an inspiration to me.  I hope to get there, too.  I'm "just" on day 12, but it's a start.  Keep going!

Thank you Bob, and Phil. It does feel so good to be free of that stuff. I'm so glad I made the choice to stop doing the things that have caused me so much heart ache over the decades. Thanks again for the support.

Nicely done Jbow. Shows how far you’ve come that you can occupy yourself without PMO even when your sleep cycle is out. Hope you’re recovering well from the op.

Awesome. What a great observation. It's like rediscovering time. Empty time. Bored time. Time for hobbies and interests, whatever. The important thing, it's not filled with porn. Porn really destroyed my experience of time when I was using it. Thanks for sharing that story.

I continue to trek forward. I spent most of the day In A truck with full internet capabilities.  I had many opportunities to vere off the new path I have chosen for myself,  and my family.  I stayed on the straight and narrow and iam proud of myself. I need to let you know that throughout the day I had thoughts , and certain scenes of movies go through my head and I think how I could lose myself for hours, if not days catching up with my old friend. But as I have become good at this, I moved my thoughts process to something useful and productive.   Stay strong  guys, and know there is something better for all of us down a pmo free lifestyle.

I've kind of slipped a little.  I gave in and had a couple night of binging. it was fun at first and then I just found myself just looking at video after video in an aimless matter. not sure what I was looking for but I spent several hours higher than a kite on dopamine . it is what it is I'm still a better person knowing what 6 months felt like I guess I'm going get clean again

Your approach and attitude towards the recent event is 100 percent correct.  You have to recognize and acknowledge your achievement and progress and focus on that aspect.  After all, it is all about today and moving forward.  Keep going!

I'm still around,  staying clean I had my fun on July 10 and I've been clean since.  Not much to report.  Its kind of odd I'm not thinking about porn at all. I would have thought after my slip up that I would have kind of been hung up on pmo, bit I'm not, not at all. Stay strong guys the battle continues.
