I caved :( Not purposely but this girl i know talked me into camming with her over skype and one thing led to another. Ugh....It's such a vicious cycle I hate to have to restart especially after 2 weeks....I think this time though I'm going to leave M out of the equation. I felt like yesterday and today I hit my flatline too and wasn't turned on by anything but idk what it was, this girl is gorgeous and I couldn't resist =\

Haha yeah but that's not important to me. I can have real experiences with women in person if I'm confident I'm not going to be soft =(

Hey NoPMO4LOVE,

How's the new streak been going? Don't worry about craving just get right back on.  Some of my best streaks came right after craving in for just one day. Just watch about binging. sometimes the hardest part was getting away from it for few days.  Two weeks is a pretty good streak and be happy about how long you made it. 

Also another thing I have been realizing lately is it doesn't matter about one crave in here or there. It matters how this month looks compared to last month. You should start doing a counter for a month.  See how many days you were clean this month and try to beat that number next month. As long as that number keeps getting higher the closer you are to getting better.  Keep at it, you got it this time!!

JHall I really like that idea man! It might actually help my mentality a bit more instead of "Oh I failed". I'll give it a shot, thanks Bro. Other than that, the past few days have been super busy so I haven't had any crazy urges to look stuff up. This girl I was with the other night knocked my phone into the jacuzzi so I literally can't kik haha. I've also been more focused at work because of it which has helped. Makes me think about turning my phone off when I get it back while I work.

Day 4: Sorry I have not posted the past few days. To this week has flown by and I've been extensively busy with work I have not had much time to think about P. My buddy will be coming over tonight, he needs to get away from wife and kid for the weekend so we're going deep sea fishing super early tomorrow. That's at least another full day away from the computer so I should be solid (no pun intended :D) Trying to keep my head up since my last relapse.

There was this girl I used to talk to on kik who actually messaged me on Tuesday and made me feel like shit, calling me a pervert and creep for some pics we swapped a month or so back. They were regular dirty pics nothing too extreme or anything, but it just hit me kind of deep and made me feel like a creeper. I really have to stop feeding these cravings when they occur, it's taking a heavy hit on my self esteem and self worth. That's all I'll post tomorrow night after our fishing trip. Thanks for reading everyone.

Thanks a ton mtaha! I appreciate it man.

I went deep sea fishing today and was gone literally all day so no chance to PMO. Just woke up from a huge nap and am feeling exhausted as hell. i'll Probably go to sleep for the night in a bit here. I'll report back in tomorrow on day 6! Night all!

Maritime, yeah I truthfully think it's the best even though it's going to be hard. I had a girl over and we were making out and I just felt nothing below, i mean maybe very shortly but not like I should have. I quit because I didn't want to be limp again and go through the same embarrassment.

The same thing happened to me a few weeks ago with a girl who later ended the relationship, it was pretty embarrassing! Not the worst of my experiences though and at least I'm making progress.

Trying to spend less time on social media hasn't been too successful for me, but hey Facebook isn't nearly as harmful as full on P!

Glad to hear you're making progress! Keep it up man!

Totally Maritime. It's super embarrassing. Don't let it knock you down too much though. It happens. Sex isn't what porn makes it seem. Dudes go soft, people far, bump their head, fall off the bed and other funky stuff.  Thanks for the support man!

Facebook is harmful , if it is a potential trigger.
if your facebook is safe , I mean no pictures of women, then it is ok.
some times , normal pics of the opposite sex are triggers for addicts.

so facebook is dangerous , I consider it as dangerous for me.

mtaha are you saying it's harmful in the way that it acts as p subs if you just see women in bikinis or harmful because it can cause a trigger making you want to wander and look at more ?

Just reporting in on Day 8. It was a pretty busy day with work, finished early, gamed the rest of the evening and I felt very very fatigue. I took the day off from the gym. It's only 9:30 pm and I can hardly keep my eyes open. Not sure if it has anything to do with no P or what. Hope everyone had a good monday! Cheers!

I definitely have triggers haha....Kik, Yahoo "Trending" section for hot females, working out at the gym with hot women (can't avoid this one, thankfully I'm in public and can just squash my urges with lifting).

yup it is normal.
but it may lead to our PMO habit again.
unless we are rebooted completely, it is dangerous to look at girls. potential triggers.

Caved again at the 2 week mark -_- This has seriously been so hard.....Yesterday was incredibly rough. My mom has been fighting leukemia the past 15 months and after a visit to the hospital yesterday it just haven't been able to kick this funk I've been in. I was just lounging around today and PMO sounded like it'd help me feel better.....it didn't of course...just worse blah.

Keep fighting!

I've found that Facebook typically isn't too bad, but I tent to browse the "Discover" section of Instagram which is flooded with sexually charged pictures of women so I'm doing my best to avoid that. I've also heard that what we're trying to stay away from is the thrill of porn- searching, obsessing over it etc. Seeing a random picture of a girl on FB or Insta is just that, a random coincidence. Still something to avoid, but not going to set you back too far.
