    Good to hear from you.
    Sounds like a great update. You sound more positive in this latest entry, and that you are now in the driver's seat of your life. Let's keep on fighting the good fight.

    Re: 21 y/o...PMO for way too long

    Over the past few years, I've spent a lot of time taking preventative measures against using P. While this is better time spent than binging on P for hours, day in and day out, it still hinders my progress in all other areas of my life; it's still valuable time lost, trying to recuperate, trying to prevent 'another one'. Preventing reset is important, but the time I spent doing so in addition to the time I spend substituting P for other escape behaviors (internet surfing, social media, general procrastination) that aren't 'as bad' needs to be reduced dramatically.

    After unearthing several non-P challenges in my life, I've been trying to tackle them and P all at the same time. But maybe for now I should accept the pain that comes with not having those other challenges 'solved' and work on making P and nofap less of a burden on me and my time. Being porn free isn't a cure-all, but hopefully once I've improved my situation in that aspect, I'll be better prepared to tackle other challenges. I'll get over this hump.

    Success? It belongs to the ones who never gave up.
     
  5. Keep on pushing.

    You're VERY lucky that you started this no-porn/PMO project early in your life. Keep it up!

    Thanks man! I guess it's hard for me to fully appreciate it now, but I'll probably be very grateful later on in life.
     
  7. I'm sure you will be.
    I feel right now that I should have started this WAAAAY back in high school.

    How's life going for you?

    Looks like you're making amazing progress now though. Life's going alright; graduated, trying hard to decide my next steps. It's a rollercoaster sometimes. Some days like today, feelings of hopelessness and loneliness pervade. But even so, I strive to keep a positive outlook on everything and keep my head up.
     
  9. Great man!

    Go out there and make some money ;)

    Haha, you already know!

    Time to transmute this sexual energy into some creative pursuit. Creating something, leaving a mark on this world, instead of squandering that energy on a cheap thrill, never allowing it to manifest into greatness. Let's go.
     
  11. Great!
    I've been successful in turning my sexual energy into creative money-making pursuits. It's very effective for me since jacking off doesn't bring me money, nor long-lasting happiness.

    This isn't a battle, it's a journey.

    Make love to the world instead.

    Urges are simply feelings, suggestions. Mine tend to come when I'm starting to feel discomfort or I anticipate discomfort coming; my mind suggests the easiest escape route. Just like we can choose to 'feel the fear and do it anyway', we can choose to 'feel the urge and not do it anyway'. I might be a lot of things, but I'm no slave. I control me, I control my mind. I feel this urge, and I won't do it anyway.

    F that life
    Screw a life filled with obsession over pixels, filled with a relentless quest to obtain something perpetually unobtainable. Screw a life where I allow my reward circuitry and neurological centers of intimacy and connection to be hijacked. Screw a life where genuine love is replaced with an artificial shell of itself. I reject that life, it's not for me. Whatever it takes, whatever sacrifices need to be made, I'll do it, I'll make them. Because F that life.

    If you're ever concerned about what you'll be missing out once you leave P behind, remind yourself of all the things you'd be missing out on if you don't leave P behind.
